Clients at the annual meeting of
the Kauai I'hamber of Commerce,
must have been sadly disappoint
ed at Hie absence of any "fire
works." The meeting passed off
without the debate they were so
eagerly looking for. Let them
confine their activities to Kapaa,
rather than springing up dissen-
siou in Lihue.
The suggestion of a picnic, in
lieu of the hampn'l, did not meet
with enthusiasm. Kvidently
business men want more than a
"Sunday school picnic."
Many at the meeting were sur
prised to learn of the number of
persons who are oflicials of the
various branches of the Children's
Welfare. A full list of names
and source of appointments would
no doubt be of interest.

Sunday School Picnic
The Lihue Hawaiian Sunday
School picnic on the church lawn
Thursday afternoon which was
largely attended ly the ineinhers
of the school. It was under the
guidance and management of Mrs.
Philip l!ice, who has very ready
facility in giving children a good
time, and does it in such an easy,
natural way that they think they
are doing it all themselves.
There were various simple
games on the lawn with lots of
hilarity and childish enthusiasm.

Shoe Prices are Unjustified
, Says Federal Board
Washington, Aug. (i. The high
price of shoes was declared to he
due to excessive profits taken by
every factor in the shoe produc
tion industry, in a report by tlie
Federal Trade Commission to
congress made public today. The
packers were charged with hav
ing begun the pyramiding of shoe
prices by an unwarranted in
crease iu the price of hides, the
supply of which they were said
to control. On top of this the
tanners have taken "exceptional
profits," while the shoe manu
facturers have demanded an "un
usual margin" aud the retailers
have charged prices that were
The commission's report covers
the four year period from 1!)U to
To show that the puckers have
made unwarranted increases in
the price of "packer" hides, the
report pointed out that the price;
differentiated between their hides
and "country" hides hides of a
lower grade has increased "far
beyond the usual propotiou."
"The public," said the report,
"had to pay prices for shoes that
not only could not be justified
because retail shoe dealers took
too much profit, but because the
dealer had to pass on to the con
sinner the excessive profits re
ceived by butchers for hides and
also the excess profits of tanners
and shoe manufacturers. '
"Some relief from the intoler
able prices paid by the consumers
for shoes may be had," the com
mission said "by
(1) A rigid enforcement of the
laws against monopolistic con
trol of commodities;
(2) Legislation forbidding pro
ducers of hides engaging in the
tailing business, and

Tip Top theaWe next Thursday.
This is a superb picturization
of Fugene Walter's famous play
which has held the stage ever
since its production in New Yoik
in 1!K)7. ltobert Cain, a popular
leading man portrays tlie role of
a cowardly, shiftless man, the
husband of Fmma Brooks, the I
part played by Miss Frederick.
Mr. Cain has done splendid work
in the past, but it is said that his
impersonation in this picture is
an unusually brilliant perform
ance. Frank Losee, one of the most
experienced character actors in
motion pictures, plays the part of
a scoundrelly capitalist who
seeks to take advantage of Mrs.
Brooks when she appeals to him
to be lenient with her husband
who has stolen a large sum of
money from him. Wyndham
Standing, a popular actor, is seen
as a breezy Westerner who ulti
mately brings happiness to Mrs.
Brooks. Jane Farrell and Vera
Beresford have excellent roles
and both are noted for their ar
tistry and charm.
