' Lihue Church Service
There was a large and appreciative
audience at the Lihue Union Church
on Sunday last in spite of counter
attractions that drew away some.
The music was mere than usually
fine, including an inspiring anthem,
"Pray for the. Peace of Jerusalem,'1
by the full Choir, and a very sympa
thetic rendering of the vocal classic,
"Calvary," by Mrs. K. C. Ahana.
Dr. Robert Day Williams, President
oflbo Mid-Pacific Institute, occu
pied the pulpit and delivered a very
thoughtful and suggestive address
on the theme, "Positive Christian

attendance on record. The president,

PEOPLE OF LIHUE
At the request of Dr. Robert Day
Williams a number of persons in
terested in the educational and eco
nomic problems of the Islands
gathered at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. S. W. Wilcox on 'Sunday af
ternoon to advise with him as to
ow the schools of the Mid-Pacific
Institute, might best meet these
After a brief statement of the
aims and purposes of these schools,
and the lines of endeavor which
had been established he called for
suggestions as to what kind of an
education they ought to give the
young people in order to make them
efficient and useful and thus fit
them best for their life work.
After some little hesitation and
some little priming,-" the factors
of debate were awakened and some
very live discussion followed, inter
spersed with gleams of caustic wit

most enjoyable occasion. Just bow

Williams got out ol it may ho a
question, but his audience got
great deal", and many expressed the
wish that such conferences might
On the whole the drift of opinion
was toward a more practical agricul
tural training, with the assurance
that our future lay in that direction,
and that rich prizes were in store
for any boy who would familiarise
himself with- the sugar business-,
and devote himself to it with intel
ligence and industry; that, now
at any rate, the prospects were much
more promising in agricultural than
in commercial pursuits. It was time
to call a halt on turning out book
l;cepers and typewriters, who hated
most of all to soil their hands, and
give tne island, lor a while any
way, farmers and artisans.
Chamber of Commerce
A regular business meeting of the
Kauai Chamber of Commerce will
be held in the court house at Wai
mea Thursday afternoon beginning
at 3 o'clock. A number of impor
tant subjects are to come ip. At
the meeting President Patterson
will announce his committees for
the new year.
The resignation of Major W. D
McBryde from the National Guard
has been accepted. A contemplated
trip abroad and health are given as
the reasons. Captain Chas. II. Wil
cox, regimental adjutant, has also
resigned on account of being a can
didate for tho'Lcgislature. ,
Pig Rancher Crowell
Deputy Sheriff W. O. Crowell has
the "makings" of a pig ranch to
day, but, strange to say, is not
pleased with his property. An at
tachment was issued by tho Waimea
district magistrate against a Japa
nese. Crowell went out to serve the
paper and all he could find was a
bunch of 31 pigs. He took the squeal
ers into custody, and then the ques
tion of what should bo done with
them dawned. It-is necessary that
they bo kept for thirty daysbefore be
ing sold. In despair Crowell telephon
ed Sheriff Rico to know what he
should do with the pigs. "Tak'em
to bed with you" was the reply. It
is understood that Crowell will net
carry out the instructions, but has
made other arrangements for keep-
ing the young porkers until they
are redeemed or sold.
