of Kealia Store, the change to

This is a well deserved promotion,

business man and has the training
and experience necessary to con

Payers Must Dig
,1. S. Gawne, of the Internal
Bevcnue Department, arrived Fri
day morning. He has a list of
firms and individuals who failed
to make their returns, and says
he intends to see them all. He says
it will be much better for the de
linquents to call on him at the
Lihue Hotel than for him to have
to hunt them up. Delinquent tax
payers are subject to a penalty

the circumstances of the case. So

Mr. and Mrs. A. Grandhomme,
for years resident at Ilanainaulu,
are leaving for the Philippines
today. Mr. Grandhonnne has se

mill in the Philippines, and every
thing there is civilized and up-to

With a record of only one ganle
lost during the season, Lihue
cinched the cup by beating the
Makees in a runaway game at
Wuipouli last Sunday.
The game was a play-oil' to de
cide the championship of the sec
ond series both teams being tied
for first place with one game lost
for each team.
It could hardly be called a
game it was a slaughter, ill
which the daughty old warrior,
Doc Wood, met his Waterloo and
was hammered out of the box.
Lihue scored in every frame
with the exception of the seventh
and seemed to be able to place
their hits just' where they would
do the most good.
Ncorc 23 io 3
With the exception of the third
inning, in which they scored three
runs, the Makees got goose eggs,
and at the end of the long, drawn
out game it was found that Lihue
had amassed twenty-three runs.
It was not expected, however,
even by the Makees themselves,
that they would win, as they did
not have the cracker-jack line-up
they had handed Lihue her only
defeat on July 24th. The back
bone of the Makee team were Wol
ters, Bun Hee and Lazima, who
are students in Honolulu, and had
to go back to school, so could not
be present at this most important
game. The Makees are all good
sports, however, and have no kick
coining. They are satisfied, that
the cup and the championship is
on their side of the island.
An Enjoyable Dance
At Lihue Hotel
An impromptu dance was ar
ranged at Lihue Hotel last Friday
evening at which a goodly number
of Lihue's young folks gathered
and had a most enjoyable time.
The event was in honor of the
young ladies who arived last week
to teach in the Lihue schools.
Returning to School
The young people returning to
school swelled the Kinau passen

at the same time.
J. M. LYDGATK.
Mrs. Lucy Wright of Waimea re
turned from town this morning.
The baseball season is pan and
has been an unqualified success.
The class of ball played through
out was far ahead of any other
seison we have had, and the at
tendance at the games goes to
show that practically the whole
population of our island are
rabid fans. This speaks well for
the future of the game on Kauai.
The season just ended was
started two weeks too late, as the
school boys had to return to Ho
nolulu before the season was over,
thereby seriously crippling some
of the teams. The next season
should start about the middle of
It must be acknowledged by
everyone that Lihue has developed
a mighty good ball (cam. A great
many of their games were won in
the last innings, by a single run
or so, and seemed to be just luck.
But to the close and unbiased ob
server, it is something else beside
luck. It was teamwork and the
thing they call inside baseball.
Copt. John Fermindvz
Capt. John Fernandez is respon
sible for the Lihue team. He knows
baseball inside and out, and this
knowledge he has used to develop
a team that would win games
when they looked like they were
lost. He trained his team to fol
low his signals both at bat and,)
when in the field. Herwitli the
generous backing of manager
Moler, has worked untiringly and
deserves a lot of credit for the

Furniture for School Cottage
At a meeting of the interested
parents of the grammar grades of
the Kauai High School, held at
Lihue Monday evening, it was de
cided to furnish the school cot
tage, and Mrs. W. II. Bice and Mr.
McCluskey were appointed a com
mittee to attend to the matter as
promptly as possible. The cost of
the same will be made up by sub
scription among those interested.
There was some disposition to
undertake the furnishing of all
the school cottages in the district,
but this was finally decided as too
big an undertaking, as well as,
perhaps unwise in view of the fact
that there is an appropriation of
5,000 for this purpose.
