A sad accident happened at LaVai
Beach Saturday .afternoon which
took from our midst an uncommon
ly lino and promising young man.
After work Mr. Dillingham, Mr.
Pilkington and Mr. Whelen. as their
frequent custom was, wont down to
the beach for a swim, the sea being
unusually smooth and attractive.
Without the least fear or hesitation
they ventured out beyond the inner
line of surf, but still within easy
standing, in fact only waist deep,
when suddenly by some swift turn
of the tide they were caught in the
undertow which undermined tho
sand at their feet and gradually car
ried them out, in spile of all they
With much dilliculty, and very
much exhausted, the other two final
ly struggled to shore, where they
hastily secured assistance and ivent
back to tho aid of Dillingham, who
meanwhile had become utterly ex
hausted so that when finally they
got him ashore it was too late to
A messonger was sent post haste
to the nearest telephone at the La
wai Pumping Station, half a mile
or so away, and Dr.' Waterhousc
was called, who came with all pos
sible speed, and made every effort
to resuscitate him but in vain.
' When it became evident that
nothing farther could be done the
body was removed to Eleele, to the
Alexander's, where it rcmaincjl
until its transfer to the steamer Doris
for Honolulu last night.
Mr. Charles Dillingham has been
a trusted servant for McBrydc Sugar
Company for, six years or .so, first
as time keeper, and then later as
harvesting field luna, and during
this time has commended himself
to the confidence of the company
by intelligence, industry and devo
tion to duty; and to all who know
him by a singularly attractive
frankness and courtesy. In addi
tion to tins he was by no means
wanting in the sterling qualities of
a "sturdy character. Ho was, we
believe, universally liked, and uni
He. came to the Islands from Bos
ton where his people live; he was
related to the Dillinghams of Hono

Islands and by whom he Avas recom

A Faithful Servant Departs
Mr. Frank Morrow, manager of
the Kauai Telephone Co. for the
last five years or so, left for Hono
lulu on Saturday to enter the mili
tary service in defense of his coun-
try. He hopes to unci a piaco in
the Signal service, for which his
training and intelligence particular
lv fit him. and where ho will un
doubtcdly be very' valuable. He
expects to go into training in tnc
proposed Hawaiian Lamp.
Mr. Morrow has proved a very
valuable asset to the Telephone
Company during these years, Hav
ing been a man of uncommonly
good judgment, intelligence and
equipment, and withal always ready
to do all that was in his power to
give satisfaction, and to do it court
eously and promptly.
Wo understand that ho leaves the
property of the Company in excel
lent shape throughout, having been
completely reconstructed along tho
whole lengh of tho lino; in so doing
ho leaves a monument that will
keep his memory green for a long
Socially also ho has been a useful
asset, especially among tho young
folks with whom he was very popu
lar. He will ho missed all round.
Our best wishes go with him.

DEATH OF A
The untimely death of William
Ellis, last Thursday, took from the
community a man who had been
identified with it through practical
ly the whole of his life.
Born at Lahaina, June G, 1S08,
he came to Lihuo as a little boy be
ing adopted and brought here by
At the early"agcof 14 lie went in
to the employ of Mr. Win. Hyde
Rice, assisting in tho beef business,
in which ho gradually worked up
until .ho was placed in charge of it.
He remained in Mr. Rice's employ
for some 25 years, until he was ap
pointed Deputy Sheriff, about 10
yen i8 ngo.
His facility in both Hawaiian and
English, and his intimate know
ledge of tho Island and of all clnsscs
of its people made him a capable
and efficient officer of tho law.
He was expectionally active in
all Church, Sunday School and C.
E. affairs, and was tho mainstay of
these organizations in all matters
calling for initiative and executive.
That he was very highly regarded
among tho Ilawaiians is evident
from tho numbers who cam.e from
far and' near to testify their sympa
thy and affection.
The funeral, which took place
Friday afternoon at tho Hawaiian
church, under the charge of Mr?
Win. Hyde Rice, assisted by Rev.
S. Kaulili, was largely attended by
all classes and was fittingly impres
sive. Mr. Rice's address was par
ticularly appropriate and effective.
The pall-bearers were the deputy
sheriffs of the various districts, and
the honorary pall bearers wore the
officials of the court.
Tho deceased leaves a widow and
fourteen children, seven sons and
seven daughters, most of whom are
Y. M. C. A.
Seven Japanese boys from the
club in Lihuo went out to Kipu
Camp last Sunday night and carried
out their literary program which
was formerly held in the Japanese
dormitory. Ffty-two members of
the camp enjoyed the program.
A Filipino Sunday School has
been organzied in the Lihuo Filipino
Camp, with the meetings being held
in the new Y. M. C. A. building
which has just been completed there.
Valentino Cobacho, as superinten
dent, has organized four classes,
two for tho older people and two
for tho children. In the first two
meetings the attendance has averag
ed forty seven.
Moving pictures were shown last
week at Ilanamaulu and at the Li
huo Camp. , A crowd of fifty four
enjoyed the pictures at tho former
place while one hundred and thirty
two crowded into the Lihuo i . M
C. A. hall.
Tho Hui Aloha Fair at Ilanalci
has been postponed until some datp
not yet determined. This action
was taken because of the death in
tho local community of Miss Mary
Werner, and of Wm. Ellis at Lihue.
Fortunately it was possible to
countermand the orders for porish
ablo refreshments so that no serious
inconvienco was involved. Per
haps as much skill was shown in
calling it off as in carrying it

A Young Life Closed
The death of Miss Mary Werner,
daughter of Wm. Werner tho
Deputy ShcrifLpf Ilanalci, which
occurred last Tuesday at her homo
was a great blow to tho family.
Wo understand that heart failure
was the final cause of death, which
was entirely unexpected by the
family until at the end.
Mrs. Werner, tho mother, was in
Honolulu and could not be reached
by wireless until too late to catch
tho Monday evening steamer. She
returned, with two other daughters
on Wednesday morning.
The deceased was about seventeen,
a very promising girl, very helpful
and reliable in the family
The Garden Island extends sym
pathy and regrets.
The New Telephone Man
Mr. E.F. Wood, who has come to
take the place of Mr. Morrow as
manager of the Kauai Tolephono
service, is well fittod by training
and experience to assume tho duties
of this responsible position. He
has been in the business some ten
years and knows it from A to Z.
Before coming to Kauai ho was Toll
and Morse Engineer for the Pacific
Telephone and Telegraph Co. who
wcro very loathe to surrender him.
He brings with him a wife and
two small children, and they give
promise of being a valuable social
asset to the community.
Registration Board in Favor
At first wc were very much re
lioved to know that wo weren't to
serve on tho Registration Board. But
when we learned that the Red Cross
ladies were to set up' ' a lunch and
supper for the Lihue Board our joy
was turned to'grief . Wo understand
that tho Board will consist of 10
members and that six ladies will de
vote themselves to the meals; and
then when wo learned tho names of
the Jladies, and remember other
"spreads" they havo served , we say :
' Lucky fellows, why didn't wo get
in on it tool"

Quite a serious accident occurred
on the road near the Kauai Garage
Tuesday evening, which though
bad enough niight easily have been
A two seat motor cycle belonging
to H. G. Roland, being tested out
by an employee of the Nawiliwili
Garage, was coining up the road at
a pretty good clip when something
went wrong, so that the machine
failed to respond to control and shied
off into the ditch on the niauka
side, at a point where there arc
some projecting roots, one of which
caught m the spokes of , the near
wheel, with the consequent result
that the machine was violently over
turned and generally smashed up.
In the process Mr. Roland put up
his hand to protect his head, and it
was caught in the gear chain, which
was then running at a terrific speed,
which took off his thumb and three
fingers and otherwise badly man
gled his whole hand.
A car was commandeered from
the Kauai Garage, and he was hur
ried tp the Hospital where he was
attended to immediately. He i s
now doing well and is cheerfully
looking forward to tho time when
he will be out and can resume his
work; it will be some time howovcr
before his hand is entirely well.
Mr. Roland is making a tour of

occasion was an uncommonly sweet

In view of the recent deaths,
which havo more or less affected
tho whole community, it has been
thought best to "call off" the Lihue
Union Church social set for Friday
evening. Tho matter will bo taken
up again early in tho Fall.
Makaweli and Kapaa witnessed
fast and snappy baseball Sunday in
the second round of the Plantation
League. In one of the fastest and
best games ever played on the Is
land, Lihuo put away tho Makee
team, 3-0, thereby taking the
lead in the race for the pennant.
Inability to hit with men on
bases proved the undoing of the
Kealia aggregation. Werner, the
big Hawaiian pitcher of the losing
team, was working like a machine
as his record of fourteen strike-outs
will show; Sain had the Lihuo
team completely on their head for
tho first four innings, burning up
the corners with his fast ball, and
mixing in his "hook." A little
slowing up in one inning and a bad
eg allowed Charlie Rice's bovs to
gather in a run, which later was
increased by two more.
Twice Makee had three men on .
bases with only one down, but
Branch in regular big-league form
mowed down the next two men
who faced him. One other tinio
two men were on with but one
down, here again Kealia "showed
the lack of a hitter who could de
liver in the pinch. Branch was
relieved in the seventh by Doi who
pitched no hit ball the three innings ,
he was in.
Makaweli was lucky in taking an
8 - C victory from Koloa. Errors
on the side of tho latter team was
the cause of their defeat. Maka
weli continued her reputation of
starting things off with a rush, by
gathering in 4 runs in the first.
Koloa kept after them all'the while,
.fmaly tying things up in tho fifth
making it -1 all. The game was
getting every one alive on the side
lines, so after continuous urging by
the crowd Makaweli again crept
into the lead only to be tied again
with G apiece. Koloa was playing
good ball at this stage of the game,
and it looked like they would dupli
cate Kealia's feat of the previous
week. Once more the error bugs
went on an outing and settled on
the Koloa crow for tho afternoon's
entertainment, with the result that

A School Children's Treat
Mrs. Bridgowater gave a picnic
some time ago to -the children of '
hur grades who passed thoir exami
nations successfully at the close of
school a few weeks ago.
There were 28 of them in all who
could come. Tho first idea was to
have tho affair at tho Ilanamaulu
Beach which was near at hand.
But tho children demurred at that;
they had been there "plenty times
before;" they wanted to go on some
now adventure. Accordingly she
tranferred the enterprise to the Niu
malu Beach, which was entirely
satisfactory; that was as far away
and full of wonder for them as In
dia or South Africa.
Arriving there they took to water
with much enthusiasm, and to tho
soda water with oven more. The
cake went like smoke, and with
many expressions of approval; hut
tho most popular featuro of tho day
was a couple of tins of nie-nacs, with
prizes hidden in thoir inmost depths.
A few grown ups, who are always
interested in children, assisted in
Tho children were all vory grate
ful to Mrs Bridgewater for the treat
which was a raro one for them.
