THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, SEPT. 21, 1920
From the Other Islands
A GHASTLY MOTOR ACCIDENT
IN SUBURBS OF HONOLULU
One man was instantly killed and
another was probably fatally Injured
when the motorcycle on which they
were riding crashed into a milk wagon
on Kapahulu road near Hobron avenue
at 7:20 o'clock last Wednesday night.
The tragedy was one of the most
ghastly in the annals of motor acci
dent in Hawaii.
The man who died instantly was
Manuel Monlz, a dairy milker. His
companion, Joe Telzera, also a milker,
was found with the shaft of the milk
wagon driven through his breast and
projecting a foot in the back.
The milk wagon was driven by a
Japanese, who was not to be found
immediately at ter the accident
Little Hope Offered.
Moniz had his brains dashed out and
scattered over the road. Teixera was
alive and sitting up, with the wagon
ahaft . protruding through his back,
when an Advertiser man happened on
the scene. It was necessary for the
ambulance attendants to pull the shaft
out when they arrived.
At the hospital the opinion was ex
pressed that Teixera had no chance of
living, which also was plainly apparent
to those who found him Immediately
after the accident.
The same shaft that fattally wound
ed Teixera killed the horse. The
broken end penetrated the neck of the
animal and killed it instantly.
Moniz had been milking cows at
the home of a Mrs. Bell, Kaimuki.
Teixera milked at his father's dairy.
He Is married. Advertiser.
CONVICT LABOR WILL
BE SENT TO MAUI TO
Convict labor, which at present is at
work on the Keeamoku road on Ha
waii, an Important link in the belt
road on that Island, will be removed
from the work, by order of Governor
Charles J. McCarthy, as soon as pres
ent surfacing materials on hand are
exhausted and will be sent to Maul,
where pineapple homesteaders are in
danger of going bankrupt unless a
serviceable highway is provided them
before the winter rains. '
The decision of the Governor was
reached on the ground that there is an
available appropriation for letting a
private contract immediately for the
surfacing of the Hawaii road, while
(the Maui highway improvement must
wait two years if it is done by private
contract. The Governor had decided
to withdraw the convicts at once from
the Hawaii work, but as some of the
asphalt has ben delivered and the heat
of the sun would melt and waste it, it
was considered necessary to permit
the convict labor to do the surfacing
until the material on hand is ex
hausted. Although the work done by the con
victs on the Kee'aumoku road has been
good, they, have been a Jong time at
it, according to the Governor.
"I can't say how long they've been
on the Job," he said. "I can only give
you an idea by telling you that euca
lyptus trees planted around the pris
on camp when the work began have
grown into a tall grove, which can be
seen for miles around." Advertiser.
IMPOSSIBLE TO TRACE
HAWAII TYPHOID CASES

been made, thus far it has been im
possible to trace the first case of ty-
phoid in the Hamakua district, accord
ing to Dr. F. E. Trotter, president of
the board of health. Dr. J. T. Wayson,
chief sanitarian, returned from Hawaii
Saturday after investigating a typhoid
outbreak at Kukuihaele.
It la believed, however. Doctor Trot
ter says, that 'the first Infection was

taken to Hamakua by tour children
from Walanae, Oahu, whose mother

visited a family at Bukulhaele, and

erous Inspections and, with the assist
ance of physicians and other nurses,

ONE HUNDRED FIFTY
KAPAA 8CHOOL- NOTE8- i
The enrollment at the beginning of
this year's term shows a slight in
crease in the number of pupils. The
school now has 675 pupils and 21
teachers, including the principal, Mr.
Raymond, or an average of about 33
pupils to each teacher.
Two new rooms are being added to
the main building, and when finished,
the school will have eighteen class
rooms as compared with sixteen the
previous school year. This does not
include the shop and kitchen, for
which separate buildings have already
Mr. Vaughan MacCaughey, superin
tendent of public instruction, accom
panied by Miss Elsie Wilcox, commis
sioner of public schools on Kauai, and
Mr. Pugh, new vocational supervisor,
paid an official visit to the school on
Friday. Messrs. Warner and Itobin
aon, Y. M. C. A. workers, the latter
from New York, and the former from
Llhue, called on Thursday and gave
an interesting talk to the pupils.
The new teachers from the main
land this year include Miss R. Banks,
from the largest state in the Union,
Texas; Miss G. Remick and Miss
Brown from Washington State, and
Miss N. Riddle, from Sacramento, Cali
fornia. Miss Binkley, from the Quaker
City, arrived to take up a position here
Just before school opened, but decided
hurriedly that she didn't like Kauai
and took the return steamer to Hono
lulu. The MiBses Chong, SuraJI and Ki
mura, all of whom taught at the liana
maulu school last year, have been
transferred to Kapaa.
Miss Esther Rutherford of Honolulu,
but more recently of Hulela school, is
now the dominating factor in the
Kapaa school kitchen.
The pupils of one of the classes are
making a natural mistake Just at pres
ent, but will soon get used to it. The
reason for this is because Miss Carrie
Bettencourt changed her name during
Ifhe summer to Mrs. Carrie Freitas, and
some of the pupils were not aware of
,the change, due to the fact that the
deed was done in California.
