READ THE GARDEN ISLAND
In the early days they didn't bother
themselves very much about the cen
susthere were plenty of people
everywhere, and that was allrlght, but
in 1865 when the population had fallen
from 130,000 to 63,000. they came to
tho conclusion that they would have
to watch it, and an act was passed that
a complete census should be made
every 6th year.
From the above table it will be
noted that the low water point of
population was reached in 1872, and
from that point on it begins to recover.
This is synchronous with the develop
ment of commercial prosperity of the
Islands, the inauguration of reciprocity
treaty, and the great extension of the

The natural decadence of the Hawaii-
ans was not made good by the advent
of other races. But with the develop
ment of the sugar business there was
a great scurrying round all over the
world for labor, and new people pour
ed in from Scandanavia and Germany,
the Portuguese possessions and the
Islands of the South Seas, as well as
from the Orient. Immediately the
population begins to recover in spite
of the continued decadehce of the ori

reading room, and the same will be in

THE BEST YET
The Ida M. Pope memorial concert
at Koloa on Saturday evening, was an
umiualilicd success whith outran the
tnoru sanguine expectations. The hall
was filled to the limit so that even
standing room was at a premium, and
the receipts were a surprice 191. 15.
The quality of the concert largely ac
counts for the success of the affair.
Koloa knows a good thing in that lino.

The Helping Hand Club of Lihue
"has just received its first honorary
member in the shape of a young hus
band. Miss Tane Kiikunl the win
some young assistant in Dr. Branch's
office, was married last Friday even
ing to Mr. K. Kurisu who has the dis
tinction of being the only, as yet, as
sociate member of the club.
The Helping Hand Club is about to
give the- charming Ruth idyll in pan
tomime at a coming church social.
During the spring this club was or
ganized as an Eight Weeks Club, with
one connecting theme running thru
the; various metings, namely "My
Potentialities." The ladies were Lihue
ladies, who met In turn with the girls
at 2 o'clock, Sunday afternoons. 0

The Puhi Camp girls organized!
themselves Into a Happy Hour Club
some time early in the spring. They,
together with the Helping Hand Club
the Happy Hour Club, you notice
met together last Sunday under the
shade of the beautiful threes in the
Vnion church grounds, and after re
hearsing Ruth, ' pictures ofthe girls
were taken by Mr. Senda.
The Happy Hour girls often go for
a Sunday afternoon drive in the C. W.
car. They have just about decided to
begin the writing of a book of adven
tures. One Sunday the Ford grew
balky for lack of another drop of
gasoline. This happened just above
the half-way bridge. Mr. Philip Rice
jitneyed the crowd back part way
until his car stopped too, because of
short rations. A Filipino friend then
came to the rescue and carried the
girls safely back to Puhi tjamp'. An
other time, in the same fateful spot,
on the same fateful hill, above the
same fateful bridge, the axle broke,
and the car was again left to decorate
the landscape for several hours.
