GAMBUXG AT UVIi GAMES
Is Kami I to have a bast-ball Hi-auilal? If
something is not t'one by th Kauai Athletic
Association or the civil authorities to put a
stop to the gambling at our baseball games, it
will only be a tpiestion of time until we have a
nasty scandal on our hands. It is not a nice
thing to have to say, but bast-ball is being ruin
ed on this island by people who attend the
games for the sole purpose of gambling. Sooner
or later somebody is going to be paid to throw
We believe there is a rule in the constitution
and by-laws t,f the Kauai Athletic Association
providing for the expulsion of members or play
ers who are found guilty of gambling on games.
That is perfectly proper, but the principal of- ,
fenders, the spectators, are allowed to practice
this vice without hindrance. Make a rule for
the cijndnion from the y round of the spec
tutors uho arc found yumbliny on the games.
The following editorial from the Advertiser
regarding the baseball scandal on the mainland
is something we should read and heed:
"Despite the fact that it is highly commer
cialized, organized baseball has always been
looked upon as a sport particularly free from
the taint of erookedness. The ocvasions when
there has been reason to believe a game was de
liberately "thrown" or that aplayer sold out
have been so few as to be practically negligable.
It is therefore particularly regrettable that
during the present season two very nasty scan
dals have rocked the foundations of organized
baseball. During recent weeks the Pacific Coast
league has been hard hit by a scandal having to
do with the alleged throwing of games by play
ers said to have been bought up by outside
And now the National league is being shaken
to its foundations by a similar scandal.
In each instance it is gambling that is at the
bottom of the trouble. The players charged
with having sold out are said to have been hired
by big gambling interests to throw games, on
which the professional gamblers cleaned up
enormous sums of money.
Those at the head of the leagues have acted
with commendable promptness and decision in
ousting the accused players. Doubtless they
realized that unless any least taint of crooked
ness is removed from the game, baseball will
cease to be the "the great American game" and
will sink to the level of professional wrestling
and prize lighting, two alleged games that for
years have been notorious for their rottenness
We have no doubt, however, that basebaU'will
be kept clean, even if, as the head of the East
ern league says, it is necessary to wreck some
of the teams to get rid of dishonest players."

AFTER BASEBALL (JAMBLEI'S
A recent dispatch from Seattle says "six
Seattle men, three of them Japanese, were bar
red' from Coast League parks by Win. II. Mc
Carthy, president of the league, to-day, in a lele
gram to Win. Klepper, president of the Seattle
club. Mr. McCarthy said that detectives, work
ing under his supervision, had uncovered evi
dence that the men have been gambling on base
These men were ejected from the park, it is
stated, by police appointed to stop gambling on
The Kauai Athletic Association and police
might well work along these same lines. We
would soon see an improvement in the existing
TO THE VOTE IIS OF KAUAI
How will you answer the following ques
tions? You are about to choose your representatives.
Representatives of what? If they are to repre
sent you, what do you stand for?
Do you want men of character and integrity
to represent you or do you want those who
would go with one hand behind their back? Do
you trust them at home?
Are they out for what money there is in it
for a gain in power and influence w hich can be
turned to their personal profit or are they
honestly seeking to benefit the district which
honors them with its suffrages?
- lias it ever occurred to you that your vote is
not alone an indication of your personal choice,
but is also a test of your regard and respect
for the community in which you live?
The persons you select will represent yon,
voters of Kauai. What do you represent?

carried on the books of national banks alone.
Nearly half as many more accounts in state
banks, savings banks, trust companies and
building and loan associations. War loan cam
paigns in the United States familiarized people
with the function of banking, and they not only
absorbed billions of Liberty bonds and Victory
notes, but cultivated the habit of doing business
with banks. That they have increased their
deposits therein is a development of high sig
nificance. Individual and demand deposits in national
banks foot up ?i:$,r:W,)08,00ft, an increase of

It is encouraging that bank deposits should
increase during a period of high prices and

SOU XI) ADVICE
We beg to commend most heartily the "Open
Letter to ll)me.teaders"by Mr. A. Horner,
government sugar expert and adviser, and to
express our confident hope that homesteaders,
and others too for that matter, will take his
advise and warning seriously to heart.
These flush times of inflated prices and ex
travagant expenditures ait; much more danger
ous, and in the end are likely to be much more
ruinous than the times of depression and pov
er3 Too much emphasis cannot be given to
the fact that we are facing a falling market
that we are buying at high ju ices and must sell
at low, and that every possible economy con
sistent with efficiency should be practiced that
we may not have to face' large losses in the final
With the outlook ahead of us the wise and
prudent man will take in sail, and snug things
up, and get ready for uncertain weather; and
he will be the man who will have the largest
credit balance in the clean up.
On the other hand, however, we would not
forget that there are a good many homesteaders
as well as other thrifty people, who are con-
ducting their affairs on perfectly sound con
servative lines. They are to be highly com
meended and they will prosper accordingly.
Whatever else there may be in the way of a
food shortage next winter, there'll be plenty or

Maybe the man who went over Niagara Falls
in a barrel only wanted to show that there's
still some use for a barrel in this country.
Prices may be expected to take a drop when
the number of people satisfied to run a wheel
barrow is in proportion to the number satis
fied to run an auto.
The best town in the world is where the gos
sip is not only publicly known but publicly
Out of twenty -one candidates for the House
and Senate from Kauai, ten of them are from

old town from now on to election night.

Another coming country for sugar
culture is the Tobasco district, of
Southern Mexico. There la a large
area of land there suitable for growth
of sugar, awaiting development. The
climate conditions are similar to those
of Cuba. Navigable rivers furnish
easy transportation to the Coast,
whence it is only 50 hours steam to
New Orleans. The drawbacks are
Malaria and political uncertainty. Thoy
are like Scylla and Charybdis, if you
escape one you fall into the other,
and its hard to tell which Is the worst.
Dr. Yoshizawa of Koloa is back from
The largest single shipment of
automobiles and trucks ever received
on Kauai will arrive via the "Lurline"
Wednesday, Sept. 15th. consigned to
Nawiliwill Garage, Ltd. There will
be a total of 65 cars and trucks, and
will include Ford trucks, Ford Touring
cars. Ford Roadsters, Morcland
Trucks, Hupmobilcs and Oldsmobilcs.
The Moreland trucks are l1, ton
and 21 ton models, equipped with
pneumatic tires. These trucks are
becoming very popular as they have
been throughly tried out for several
years on this Island and have proven
an absolute success. The pneumatic
equipment is an added advantage as
has been demonstrated by the work
done with several Morelands with
pneumatic tires in service. During
the past weeks of rainy weather these
trucks have been able to work where
it was Impossible for trucks with
solid tires to go. In addition to this
they can cover more ground and affect
a great saving In depreciation and
wear and tear to the truck.
Practically all of the Forda are sold
and will be delivered as soon as they
are assembled, and propective buyers
are now placing their orders for cars
from the next shipment which will
arrive about October 12th. Nawiliwill
Garage urges all interested in a Ford
to place their orders at once, as' the
Ford Motor Company will only ship
cars upon receipt of bonefide Buyers
Order, signed by the buyer. Delivery
is guaranteed within 30 days.
People wonder where all the Fords
go that r.ie sold, but the demand is not
surprising when you consider the
wonderful performance of the "Uni
versal Car." The extremely low cost
of operation, the service that Ford
owners receive and the wonderful sec
ond hand value. It is the one car
that there is always a market for,
irrespective of its age v or condition.
Another reason of their popularity is
the fact that Ford owners can always
get parts for their car from any
garage. Nawiliwill Garage, Authorized
Ford Dealers, carry over $8000.00
worth of Ford parts In stock, which
are sold at prices that are only about
the prices of similar parts for other
The Ford One Ton Truck, costing
865.00 F. O. B. Kauai, with a worm
drive and large pnuematic tires on
the rear wheels, is becoming very
popular and is in great demand. It
easily handles a ton load practically
anywhere you want to go, and its cost
of upkeep is remarkably low.
Dr. Might on opens New Office
Saturday afternoon was the occasion
for the opening of the new suite of
offices in the Tip Top Building, occu
pied by Dr. Mighton, Chiropractor.
The refreshment table looked very
beautiful, banked with ferns, creeper,
and tastefully blended blossoms.
Extensive alterations were necess
ary in order to comply with the needs
of a modern chiropractic office, and Dr.
Mighton is to be commended on the
arrangement. Announcing one's ent
rance is an electric contact under the
doormat, and immediately one is
aware that their presence is known by
the doctor, because an electrically il
luminated sign flashes "Be Seated."
The patients are then ushered into
the Adjusting room, from where they
are assigned to the dressing rooms for
men and women, opening off the Ad
justing Room. The Adjusting Room is
equipped with Chiropractic outfit, and
table, electric sterilizing outfit, and
everything to suggest comfort, cleanli
ness and efficiency.
The ladies' rest room is very taste
fully finished in .the general color
scheme of cream and ivory, with rich
brown hangings in the three dressing
booths, and cretonne curtains at the
windows. A freshly laundered kimono
assigned to ean lady patienr, to be
used exclusively by her during her
course of spinal adjustments, and a
large cabinet is provided for the ki
maims. The dressing lAiutlis are fitted
with all the little requisites for mi
lady's toilet, and electric fans, com
fortably upholstered couches, maga
zines and books make the half hour's
rest after the adjustments pass very
quickly and pleasantly.
Evoivthing possible has been done
to prOide a cheerful, happy, brighten
ing environment for the'tick folk who

wfsh him every success in his new
