THE STORM AT WAIMEA
Tho recent storms hit Walmea hard-
cr than any other part of tho Island.
Sunday, Sunday night and Monday it
rained torrents, and Monday thoro
was a sort of cyclone, with the wind
from all quarters of tho compass,
blowing a gale. Many trees, especial
ly out Kokaha way, wero wrecked and
more or less damago Was done to
roofs and buildings.
In ono case a Japanese houso was
riven in twain by the trunk of a fall
ing tree, tho two ends remaining Intact.
The Walmea river was swollen to
largo proportions. Fortunately no
damago was done by it, and even the
usual flooding of tho town was obviat
ed, due to tho fact that the bar at the
I mouth of tho river was swept away,
leaving an open exit.
Great quantities of mullet wero
brought down by tho flood, and wero
secured by fishermen with nets, so
that there was great feasting and re
joicing In many simple homes.

Mrs. E. A. Creovoy and children, of
Eleele, left for a short trip to town
last Saturday evening.
The Kapala Itoman Catholic Church
Is being renovated and a now steeple
and portico entranco is being built.
Mr. E. F. Hansen, representing T.
H. Davies Co., of Honolulu, has been
on Kauai some days. He is selling
the Best Tractor, and Is also supply

Tho now Hanamaulu Hall, opposite
tho plantation ofllco Is being built. It
Is a fine site, central and commanding.
Tho hall will bo very much appreciat
ed by tho Hanamaulu community.
Mortimer Lydgatc has been chosen
as ono of tho three men to represent
Punahou on the all star cloven foot
ball team. He will be right tackle.
Ono or two Kauai boys will servo on
this team representing Kamehameha.
The infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
M. P. Jervcs was baptized Sunday,
Nov. 17th at the Walmea Itoman
Catholic church. Tho child wore the
same dress that tho father pas bap
tized in twenty-flvo years ago.
Miss Castro, community nurse,
received a rather blind wireless re
cently which she interpreted to bo
news of the death of her mother. It
now transpires that it was her sister
and not her mother. She is at once
glad and sorry.
There Is an ordinance by which the
public schools are required to bo pro
vided with fire extinguishers. In view
of tho experience of the Lihuo school
which was flooded by the leaky roofs
yesterday, that school, anyway, should
bo outfitted with life preservers.
Mrs. Raymond A. McNally, wife of
tho now editor of tho Honolulu Star
Bulletin, arrived on Kauai last Friday
and is at tho Lihuo Hotel. Mrs. Me
Nally came for a change of climate
and to recuperate from an indisposi
tion and expects to remain on Kauai
a short time.
E. C. WebBter, principal of the
Kamehameha Schools, came up Fri

held thus far the net return has
amounted to $GG1.25.
It seems as though the congestion of
business would force them to look for
larger quarters, the crowd on a busy
day, even outside on the street is so
great as to threaten to impede public
traffic. The congestion within tho
storo has bee-i so great, and the
scramble to securo tho desired bar

French Orphan Dinner
And Luncheon Parties
Ono of tho most successful and en
joyable affairs given in connection
with tho Fatherless Children of
France drive, was a stag party given
last Thursday evening by Dr. E. N.
Young. About twenty guests assem
bled around a well appointed spread,
tho main feature of which was a stow
of Belgian hare, roinforced by baked
mullet, salad and brown beans and
oh, joy! never before were there such
beans outside Southern California.
After the repast tho rest of tho
evening was devoted to cards and
pool; each game contributing goodly
amounts to the orphan fund. Alto
gether $50.00 was realized from tho
dinner and games.
Monday evening tho Japaneso of
Llhuo gave a benoflt entertainment
at tho Tip Top which will net about
$150.00 for tho fund.
Mrs Lydgato, Mrs. Moler and Mrs.
Droadbcnt gave a combination chain

Sugar Growing Contract
In tho matter of the sugar growing
contract which is of very vital im
portance to tho future of homestead
ing in these Islands, Governor Mc
Carthy explains in a letter to the
Chamber of Commerce that tho con
tract entered into with the Walakca
Mill Company was a temporary one,
made with a view to saving the
ratoons then growing on tho land.
This agreement contained a clause to
tho effect that any contract which
might bo made between tho Mill Com
pany and the government, should bo
a part of the final homesteader con
tract. Constructive criticism was then in
vited. Tho only criticism recoived
was that which camo from Kauai.
Strango as it may seem, the parties
most immediately and vitally interest
ed, viz, tho prospective Walakca home
steaders, hadn't a word to say, and
did not seem to bo awake at all. They
declared later that thoy had never
seen tho proposed contract, and know
nothing about it. It certainly seems
a little strango that tho government,
supposed, presumably, to bo act'ng
for them, in a measure at least, 'did
not furnish them with a copy of this
When thoy did see it, thoy promptly
repudiated it, and formulated a numb
er of modifications which they wished
to havo substituted or adopted, somo
of which tho Governor thinks arc
reasonable, and others not. In view
of these strenuous objections, this
original contract will probably bo
I cancelled and a now ono entered into
I with the Waiakea Mill Company. The
I Govornor admits tiiat ho mado a mis-
tako in approving tho Walakca con-
tract without allowing more tlmo for
i consideration and discussion.
Tho changes proposed by tho Waia
koa Homesteaders Leaguo aro in tho
main as follows:
Delivering. Tho homoBteador Is to

j portable tracks aro to bo furnished by
