L1HUE. KAUAI, TERRITORY OF HAWAII, TUESDAY, JULY 13. 1920
ESTABLISHED 1904. VOL. 16. NO. 28.
SUBSCRIPTION RATES, $2.50 PER YEAR 5 CENTS PER COP?
TO IDA M. POPE
With Kameharacha, Kawaiahao,
Maunaolu, and other such schools for
the education or Hawaiian girls, the
field, so far as education is concerned,
Is pretty well covered. The gixat need
for many years has heon Borao suit
able home where girls could bo
sheltered and fostered under good in
fluences during the Interim before they
are settled In somo permanont occu
pation or home.
For this purposo two such homes
have been Instituted, Kalulani and
Cluett. But these homes are filled to
overflowing and are entirely inado
quoto with a long waiting list of those
who cannot be accommodated.
Recognizing the great need that
there is for farther provision in this
line, the graduates of Kamehameha
propose to do honor to the memory of
their benefactress, Miss Ida M. Popo
by establishing such a home, as a last
ing memorial to her virtues and char
racter. They are undertaking tolraiseja fund
of $150,000 for this purpose, mainly,
though not solely, through the efforts
and generosity of the Kamehamelfa
graduates. Uniform organizations are
being created on the different Islands
wth a view to getting into touch with
all Kamehameha graduates, and to in
terest them In this most worthy cause.
A number of high class concerts or
other entertainments will be given on
Kauai for this purpose, duo notice of
which will be given from time to time.

LIQUOR VENDOR CAUGHT
Wong Sing, peanut vendox and an
othorwlsepeaceflrson oCthe Qel,cstral
Kingdom, camo to grief last week and
1 is today minus one hundred good Iron
Men, a sadder but a wiser man. It all
happened bo sudden, like a stroke of
lightning out of a clear sky, that Wong
has hardly got his breath yet and is
still wondering, why these haoles arc
so finicky and particular about what
a person carries in a gunny sack.
Wong was vending his legitimate
wares and also his self-concocted
"Eau de Vie," when unfortunately for
hm, one of the minions of the law es
pied him and, suspicious of Wong's ac
tions, apprehended him. Sure enough
besides the homely peanut, quite a
quantity of mountain dew was found
reposing In his gunny. Bail was in
order now and not having sufficient
kale in his Jeans, Wong was allowed to
interview some of his friends, who
generously made up the purse demand
ed by he officers. Wong gained his free
dom but his wares were confiscated
and are in the Sheriff's care.
In Court next day, Wong made him
self scarce and falling to appear, his
money was declared forfeited and
turned in as a County realization.

11 QUIET GAME
Makawell went Into a triple tie for
second place with the Makee and Li
huo teams on Sunday when they de
feated the Makees at Makawell by
the store of S to 5.
The Makcos' lack of pitchers with
any sort of ability on the mound was
partly responsible for tho defeat, but
ihey threw away the game themselves
. making many costly errors at crltl
".l moments.' Hoopll on third, Bun
Heu at short, Rodrigues at first, King
'n left, and Wolters at the plate, all
dropped perfectly thrown halls that
3hould have retired baserunners, but
were scored as runs Instead. All in all,
'ho Makees had an off day all around,
.lid had nobody but themselves to
blamo for losing to what was supposed
to be, an easy team.
Umpire Marcalllno, who usually offi
ciates in a very satisfactory manner,
also had an off day, calling mnny
3trikes that seemed too low and too
high for tho batters to swing at.
The feature of the game was the
pitching of Furtado, who struck out
fifteen batters for Makawell. In the
eighth he fanned Hoopll, Shlral and
Rodrigues in succession, and in the
ninth Arcia and Morita also whiffed,
making it five in a row. Barrette and
Tsunehlro also starred, the former get
ting a trlpple and a single in two
times up, and the latter a double and a
home run to deep center.
The game was marred by what
seemed to be a deliberate attempt on
the part of Pedro, the Filipino catcher
nf Makawell, to spike first baseman
Rodrigues of the Makees. In the sec
ond inning, he hit a grounder to Hoopll
at third and tho ball got to first several
feet ahead of the runner, but when a
few feet away from the bag, Pedro
umpcd into the air straight for the
"nVles of Rodrigues. Luckily, tho lat
ter had time to get away when he saw
the spikes coming, but one can imagine
the result had the play been close,
forcing Rodrigues to remain on tho bag
little longer. Umpire Marcalllno
noticed this piece of dirty work and
warned the offender that a repltition
of tho same would result in his banish
ment from the game.
Tho McBryde-Kilauca game at Kli
auea, was a shut-out game, 7 to 0 in
f.tvor of McBryde.
Next Sunday's Games
The games next Sunday will be as
follows: Makees vs. Kliauea at Kapaa;
McBryde vs. Lihue at Eleele.
