Tho Housewives Lcac, of Hono

sonable prices, jams, jellies, bread,
cake, pie, etc. more wholesome and
more toothsome than anything that
"can be bought of the grocer or baker.
A competent employment bureau is
an important feature of tho league.
Naturaly the women know far more
about household servants, cooks,

any ordinary man can, and they have
instinctive advantages far conducting
such a bureau that a man may never

MAKEES AND KILAUEAS HAVE
PRELIMINARY GO LAST SUNDAY
After being prevented once by a
cane fire and again by rain, tho exhi
bition game scheduled three weeks
ago between the Makeo and Kilauca
tennis was played at Kilauca on Sun
day and resulted in a win for tho Ma
kees. by a score of 0 to "3.
Wet grounds duo to a rather heavy
rain tho day previous prevented fast
playing and was tho cause of a con
siderable number of errors on easy
plays. Nine hits were secured by tho
visitors to the homo team's six. The
Kilauca team as individuals, showed a
lot of promise but it needs more team
work. However, Manager W. F. San-1-orn
can-bo depended upon to look
nftor this end of the game.
The Makees. during tho latter stages
of tho game, gave a good account of
themselves but were baffled at tho
start by tho slow curves of W. Wood,
on tho mound for Kilauca. Had tho
homo tenn chosen to let him pitch
tho full nine innings, tho result would
probably have been a much showing
on tho part of tho Kilaueas.
Tho Makees tried out almost all of
their staff of dingers, Lee Wing, Mori

few innings. Kilauca did likewise.

L. A. WALWORTH LEAVES
Mr. L. A. Walworth,- associate secre
tary for Kauai V. M. C. A. for tho past
two and a half years, leaves with his
family for tho mainland today." Mr.
Walworth was employed as a special
secretary for work among 'tho Fili
pinos in February 1018. To this work
be applied himself faithfully for two
vears making friends among and win
ning the confidence of many groups
of Filipino laborers on tho various
plantations. Last February at tho an
nual meeting of the Kauai cominlttoo
it was decided to discontinue tho Fili
p'no work as such and havo Mr. Wal

groups of other nationalities as well.

Oshlro. a laborer employed by one of
the now Wailua homesteaders, was
found dead early on Friday morning on
the road about a hundred feet from the
Immo of S. Nagahisa, above tho
Cheatham homestead. Examination of
the body by Dr. Kuhns showed that tho
dt-'d nr. n hud been shot in tho stom
ach the bullet having pierced his body
jti3t above the hips, and death had
!cen instantaneous. Two empty shells
from a 38 caliber automatic revolver
were found near the body, but no fur
ther evidence was unearthed by the
police up to yesterday.
The fact that currency and coin
totaling JIS.00 was found in the hind
pocket of the dead man's trousers, in
a w.iy does not support the theory that
robbery had been the motive of the
murder or murderers. The police as
sert however, that robbery was the
motive, as the victim was known to
have had a hundred dollars on his per
son in addition to the money found,
when lie left for honve. that evening
after taking in tho moving picture
show in the village.
Three Filipinos have been arrested
and held for investigation in connect
ion with the murder. One of tho sus
pects had blood stains on his trousers,
and another had similar, stains on his
shirt, while the other is held because
it was known that he, with the other
two suspects, had accompanied the
J.'ip'Micso homo that evening.
All three of the Filipinos admit go
ing home with the Japanese but dis
claim any knowledge of the crime, ex
cept that ono of them admits having
heard two pistol shots being llred
about 2 a. m. that morning.
The Filipinos explained tho presence
of the blood stains as having been
caused by a fresh cut on one of tho
men's hands. No money was found on
tho suspects or in their rooms.
S. Nagahlsa, near whose house the
body was found, reports that ho also
beard two shots about 2 o'clock Fri
day morning, but paid no attention to
