A public reception followed in
which the Congressional party lined
up to be introduced to the children
and their friends, and went through
the ordeal of shading hands with
some four hundred and fifty or five
hundred, many of them little tots,
who were lllled with wonder and
awe at being allowed to shake
hands with a real live member of
P.y this time the waning after

was time to take the homeward

time for a much needed bath and

The Evening Reception
In spite of lowering skies and a
drizzling rain the Lihue' Armory
was tilled to the extent of the seat
ing capacity in the evening. The
Kapaia Band and the Hawaiian
Orchestra enlivened the meeting
with patriotic airs while the au
dience wa's gathering.
Mr. Wishard extended a cordial
welcome to our distinguished visi
tors in a few well chosen words and
emphasized our uigent need of safe
a n tl adequate uoepsea landing
Representative Tlatt of New York
led the way on behalf of the visi
tors with a timely patriotic address,
followed by Senator Myers of Mon
tana, on homesteading public lands,
in which he emphasized very for
cibly and convincingly the absolute
need for an independent middle
class w i t h their indedendence
grounded in the soil.
Mr. Broadbent.of the local home
steading committee, outlined the
story of homesteaders on Kauai,
and made a strong plea for justice
and a square aeal, and for the con
servation of the water as the key of
the whole situation.
By special invitation Governor
Pinkham set forth the policy and
endeavors of the government in re
gard to the homesteading of public
lands, declaring most emphatically
that everything that could be done
under the law was being done, and
intimating that those who were im
patient with the action of the gov
ernment failed to realize the dif
ficulties'by which the problem was
A public reception and dance
followed, which was largely partici

ns well as the general public not

The Second Day's Activities
Owing to the heavy fall of rain
during the night it was thought ad
visible to modify the program of
the second day's campaign by
sticking to the macadamized road
for the forenoon, taking the eartli
roads of the homestead region in
Aeeoidingly after Hag raising ex
ercises and singing at the Lihue
school, in which to a certain extent
the High School participated, the
party made a straight break for
Ilanalei anil Haena.
At the former place the school
children, perched like blackbird on
the fence, listened to a brief address
by Senator Myers until a sudden
shower drove them to cover just in
time to save them from the full
force of the moral which that elo
quent gentleman would impose .on
Kapaa School and Homesteads
Retracing their way the party
reached the Kapaa school about one
o'clock wlu-n a very welcome re
frefhinciit of soda water and sand
wiches awaited them, and very in
teresting school exercises, and a
couple of brief but excellent speech
, the one by Rep, Elston of Cali
jfornia, and the other by Rep. Mc
j Laughlin of Michigan.
By this time the roads had dried
up sulliciently to make the trip
through the Homesteads safe, so a
Hying trip through that interesting
rrgion back of Kapaa was made
and an opportunity was afforded
the visitors to see for themselves
what homesteading had done for
A Strictly Hoover Lunch
True to the program the pattv
rounded up at the Coney place at
Niunialu for the final lunch alwit
the middle of the afternoon, where
they found a delicious lunch set
forth under a most attractively dec
orated lanai, amidst the beautiful
surroundings of that Ivautiful spot.
This lunch had been very carefully
made up to meet the requirements
o f food conservation standards,
everything being home grown,
wheatless, meatless, wasteless
duck corn, bread and rice biscuits,
and baked beans home grown
grapes, pineapples, bananas, coffee,
sugar, etc. etc. all home grown as
well as most delicious. This lunch
was handled by the Mokihana Club,
and was most excellent in quality
and variety, while the seivice was
Following the lunch Dr. Temple
of Pensylvania spoke in terms of
the highest appreciation of the hos
pitable way that the party had been
treated; Rep. Gallager of Illinois
gave his hearers every assurance
that he and his colleagues would
leave no stone unturned to give
Kauai the deep sea harbor that it
needed and must have; Rep. Tread
way added his solemn assurance to
that of his predecessor this very
thing would assuredly bedone;Rep.
Bowers added his assurance that he
would get for Hawaii a national
aquarium tliat would draw vast
hordes of tourists to our shores etc.
etc; and so each worthy congress
man outvied his brother in the
prodigal disposition of gifts and
benefits for Hawaii in general and
for Kauai in particular, until they
were warned that it was time to de
part for the landing where in due
time, with many hearty expressions
of gratitude and good will, and many
cordial invitations to come again.
