that ho would leave Thursday after

"Tho Makco Sugar Co. has agreed to

said Kcliinoi. "I plan to start them
at that work. Shortly thero will bo a
tract of land near tho upper reaches
of tho Wailua river opened up for

"Before coming over here I enlisted
about twenty-five Hawalians at Wai

In Honolulu I havo secured forty

OF VICTORY DA!
Tuesday. Nov. 12, mny fairly bo
called Victory Day and a? such was
appropriately observed by the va
rious cominitoces all over the
island it leinn contended that this
would enable a larger proportion to
participate limn if the celebration
was localized at one central point.
At Waimea thero was a big pa
rade in the evening in which the
balvation Army band led the way
followed by a large llu.it suitably
decorated and filled to overflowing
with school children; this was fol
lowed by a lied Cross procession in
which thc members of that organi
zation niade an impressive and
artistic showing in their dainty
costumes. A Japanese lantern pro
cessing brought up the rear and
contributed very much to the
picturesque quality of the affair.
After parading the main streets
they drew up at tho court house
park for patriotic addrcsse.1;, fire
At Koloa there was a public
meeting on the common with sing
ing by the school children, athletic
and other games, with suitable
prizes followed by short addresses
in several languages.
In the evening there was a very
taking moving picture program in
the Kauai Railway warehouse near
the site of tho old mill. This was
crowded to overflowing with many
standing outside. This was a free
treat by the courtesy of the Koloa
At Hanapepe and Eleelo there
was a lantern pantile in the evening
starting from Hanapepe village and
making the round to lileele, Port
Allen, etc. A big lantern truck
led the way followed by a brilliant
array of individual lanterns, up
wards of 200.
At Lihue the mass meeting in the
afternoon was on the whole the
most successful thing of the kind
yet experienced. An hour in ad
vance of the time the scats were all
taken and when the exercises began
the place was crowded, there being
more people standing than sitting.
It is estimated that there were
over I!000 people.
The singing by the school chil
dren of popular patriotic songs was
crisp, facile and vigorous, showing
good training and excellent leader
ship. Mrs. V. H. tlrote, Jr.
handled the same with much skill
The brief address by Judge Dickey
was sane, sonsible and suggestive.
Th address of tho day by How A.
W. Palmer was clear-cut, vigorous,
temperate and eloquent, and re
ceived much well merited applause
at frequent intervals. Mr. II. D.
Wishard presided, as usual, very

meeting was the advent of

form. There were somewhat over

Tho noiso commltteo which had
been parading an effigy of tho Kuiscr
hung from the tail of a truck during
tho afternoon, brought him to an in
glorious end in tho evening by setting
him afifo with tho aid of gasoline, and
thou blowing him to pieces at tho
mouth of a cannon, amid cheers of
rojoicing and derision.
Tho day was fittingly closed with a
danco in tho Armory which was great
ly enjoyed by tho happy crowd.
KILAUEA MUCH IN IT
Tho celebration at Kilauea was in
many ways tho most remarkable on
tho Island. Beginning Monday even
ing thoro was a big moving picture
show in tho hall, followed by n bonfiro
and the public burning of tho Kaiser.
On Tuosday thero was a big floral
parado headed by several lloats, ono
Monday afternoon Manjl Oyc and
John Ing, tho ono an employe of tho
Kauai Carago and tho other of the
Nawiliwili Oarage, were victims of a
very serious gunshot accident which
will lay them up for weeks.
They were out hunting at Nlumalu.
In passing the gun to Ing who was in
a tree, Oyc did so in such a way that
tho trigger struck a branch, tho gun
went off, and tho charge wont through
his arm which was extended over
his head, blowing tho arm fairly to
pieces, and then entered tho breast of
his comrade, somo of the shot landing
in his lungs. Ono of tho Chinese
fishermen near, hearing tho report
camo to their rescue and convoyed
them in a cart to the jail from whence
they were brought in an automobile
to tho doctor who gave them immedi
ate attention and who is hopeful in
regard to their recovery.
Doar People of Kauai:
After the glorious news wo arc
enjoying I hope you will Gladly re-

In particular, representing a battle
ship, was very realistic. Tlicso floats
woro followed by a long string of
automobiles very effectively decorated
in flags and a wealth of natural
flowers. Tiiis proccss'on paraded tho
streets of Kilauea, and then went over
to Hanalci and waked tho patriotic
echoes of that (pilot community.
In tho evening thero was a lantern
parado In which over 500 colored
lanterns participated. After making
tho rounds tho crowd returned to tho
hall where thero was patriotic speech
es and most enthusiastic demonstra
tions of rejoicing and patriotism,
such as were displayed no whoro else
on tho Island perhaps. There were
over a thousand people thoro, and tho
great hall, which seats 000, was crowd
ed almost to sufflcatlou. After tho
demonstration was over tho whito
pcoplo adjourned to tho homo of tho
manager and closed the days exer
cises with a dance.
IS THIS THE TIME?
Tho meeting hold in Llhuo recently
by tho Japancso in rcsponso to tho
call of tho Wahiawa Voting Men's
Association was attended by about
fifty of tho leading Japancso of tho
Island, men of intelllgnoco. good sonso
and standing. Tho meeting was call
ed to consider tho fitness and wisdom
of instituting a campaign for higher
wages, especially on tho plantations.
As tho rosult of a very gonoral, and
very temperate discussion, tho gonoral
consensus of opinion was that this
was hardly the time to mako such a
demand, and any such move will
scarcely moon with any vory general
or enthusiastic cooporatlon.

Dr. James T. Wayson of Honolulu,

Kauai last Friday and has been look
ing into tho typhoid situation and tho
sanitary conditions of Kauai in gon
oral. Tho doctor expresses himself ns
highly; gratified with what ho has
soon nnd with tho exception of one
or two minor matters, thinks Kauai
ranks very high from a sanitarian's
In particular he commends the ex
cellent work of Frank U. Cook, sani
tary inspector for Kauai, saying, that
"In general too many Cooks spoil tho
broth, but in this Instinco. if Honolulu
only had more Cooks, that city wou'd
bo fortunate indeed."
Kauai's cleanliness the doctor as
cribes to tho meticulous care with
which Mr. Cook attends to his duties.
The doctor Is to take the matter ot
perfect sanitation up with the various
plantation managers and other powers
that bo, so that with closer co , ora
tion, Kauai may reach such perfection
as to bo deemed tho most sanitary
island in the group.
Tho doctor has the following to say
regarding tho typhoid situation in
and around Llhue:
"Tho sanitary condition in Llhuo
and surrounding district is in extreme
ly good shape. Tho proven cases ( f
typhoid fever are not of sufficient
number to causo any fear oT an epi
demic. Every community has a reslduil
number of typhoid and evidently tho
few cases so far under observation
are of this class as wo cannot trace
the source of infection to any ono
common source such ns tho milk or
water supply or food, unless tho latter
limited to ono or two peddlers who
