This comes as a complete sur
prise as no intimation of a con
templated reduction had reached
the Islands previous to the order
received by the agents a few days
ago from the, Ford company. It
is stated that the reduction will
average over $100.00 on all differ

by tluft company.
This is undoubtedly the fore
runner of a general reduction of
prices in the automobile industry,

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FIND
FAMOUS FLY-TRAP PLANT
Four High School boys, Wm. Mo
ragne, Homer B. Tracy, Ernest Wede
meyer and P. Grinncll, Jr., went to
Kokee last Friday after school, Intend
ing to particularly get specimens of
the interesting Sun-dew or Fly-Trap
Drosera which is only found on Wal
aleale and nowhere clso in the Ha
waiian Islands. It is a native of
Northern Europe. It was first col
lected by Valdemar Knudsen, father
of Eric Knudsen, many years ago.
The boys reached Kokee about
10:30 Friday evonlng and next day
wont over the trail to the Alakal
Swamp or bog, where along the edges
the desired plant was found in fair
abundance. Specimens were carried
back in a pail to the Kauai High
School where they may be seen.
The plant is very famous in biologi
cal study, and comparatively few peo
ple have the privilege of studying it.
This plant actually catches flies and
mosquitoes alive, for food, and for
this purposo the whole plant body is
highly specialized. It presents many
interesting subjects for study.

to seven, in a hard fought game at
Eleele last Sunday afternoon,
thereby earning the right to play
oil" the tie game witli Makee
which holds a chance for the
championship. If Lihue can defeat

teams will then be tied for the
championship of the 1020 series.
Hotli teams started off in a rath
er ragged manner; especially Li
hue. Although they collected four
runs in their first, tinle at bat,
they almost spilled the beans by
their ragged fielding. Mitsu was

time McBryde collected no less
than seven runs. Tai was then
put in the box and held the home
boys scoreless for the other six
innings of the game. This was

cover himself with glory and put
pep into his team mates, who
bucked up and played real ball
from then on.
McBryde played their usual
good game of ball, but Robello was
not up to his usual standard and
handed passes to several Lihue

Ifi Our Special Correspondent
The fifty three other Island dele
gates, duly beribboned and be
badged for the occasion, arrived
in llilo by the Mauna Kea in the
early morning of the 2;trd. It was
so early (i:.'!0 a.m.) that very few
of (lie llilo people were up to meet
us but the band was there, and
gave us a good, hearty welcome.
llilo is a city, so that she was
abundantly able to take care of
the large delegation in spite of the
fact that the hotels couldn't rend
er any assistance.
True to the policy that llilo had
set for the convention, that it
should be a session of serious pur
pose, the meeting was called to
order a little after 0 o'clock, the
necessary preliminaries were ex
peditiously disposed of and the
program was taken up.
A brief word of welcome was ex
tended by Dr. Bice, the chairman
elect, to which Mr. A. Lewis of
Honolulu, responded with much
grace, as well as good common
sense. lie emphasized the fact
that development was ever the
policy of Ilawaii looking for
ward to greater and better things,
and it was particularly fitting
that this Civic Convention should
meet here in Hilo which had be
hind it the largest amount of
country and the greatest possi
bilities of development,
lie furthermore suggested the
danger that there was, in our Is
land communities, separated as
they were by broad stretches of
sea, in thinking in terms of the
local Islands and their own im
mediate interests. We were here
on this occasion particularly to
think in the terms of the whole
The Governor, who had come over
on the Super Drednaught New Mexico
to attend tho Convention, was met by
an Ad Club ovation song:
'Oh, we're glad to see you, Governor,
With your hand in your pocket,
And your little chain and locket, etc"
The Governor thought that these
civic conventions were a mighty good
thing in more ways than one. For one
thing they sort of kept a check on the
public officials, who, he admitted, need
ed watching, but who weren't as bad
as some people made them out. Ono
thing which mado them what they
were was that just when they were
getting down to a bearing they were
superseded by a new man.
Following the Governor's address
there camo several formal papers
which were already printed and In the
hands of tho delegates. They were:
"Boy Scouts of America," by ex-Governor
George R. Carter; "General As
pects of Social Welfare Work in tho
Territory," by Charles A. Puck, of
Maul; "Sugar Plantation and Welfare
Work," by D. S. Bowman; "Social Wel

Bergln, of tho Associated Charities,
Honolulu; "What Wo Arc Doing On
Maui," by C. S. Childs, of Maul; "What
We Are Doing On Hawaii," by Miss
O'Uollly, of Hilo. J. M. Lydgate made
an impromptu oral report of what we
rtre doing on Kauai, which met with
particular favor, since it was a direct
talk, not overloaded with statistics and
spiced with a dash of humor.
In addition to these regular elements
off tho program there wore several
specials introduced because they were
present and available. C. S. Robinson,
the Y. M. C. A. man, now touring tho
Islands, gavo a characteristic humor
ous talk on "The Kinds of Boys." A.
T. Atkinson read a comprehensive
paper on "The Doings of the Board of
Agriculture and Forestry," and Dr.
Dean, of the University of Hawaii,
gave an interesting and illuminating
account of what that institution is do
ing and planning.
Altogether It made a very full and
very profitable day, which amply justi
fied the policy outlined by the Hilo
peoplo in their invitation, to make the
convention reany civic, serious and
There was of course, a largo amount
of meat in the various papers they
will be printed in the proceedings of
the convention, and should be read by
all intelligent people; but they will

some of the outstanding points of gen
On the whole, 1 think the most sig
nificant welfare work of the Territory
is being done by tho plantations. They
have the field thoy have the money
they have the facilities and now, at
length, they have tho inclination.
Bowman, as director of plantation
industrial service, was in a position
to give much information, and he did.
He reports that on many plantations
excellent dairies are being operated
where milk is sold at a price within
the means of all. Ono plantation has
Bpent over $100,000 for an adequate
supply of pure water. Visiting nurses
aro now employed on nearly all the
plantations; on tho larger ones, more
than one. In addition to tho more
familiar duties of thoso nurses they
do a great deal of excellent work run
ning dispensaries, supervising day
nurseries, giving homo lessons in
household management, preparation of
baby food, infant caro, cooking les
sons, supervision of child play, etc.
"Staple goods are being sold in plan
tation stores at as near cost as pos
sible. Many stores show no profit at
tho end of the year's business." "Most
plantation villages have motion picture
theatres where regular shows are
given. The bureau has arranged for
a regular film service in order that
proper films may bo shown and con
templates providing a good clean
vaudeville show once a month."
Your correspondent expressed his
satisfaction at this moving picture In
formation and hoped that this com
mendable enterprise might solve the
moving picture problem in small com
munities. Ho inquired whether these
shows would be open to tho general
public, and about when this service
would bo inaugurated on Kauai. Mr.
Bowman thought thero would be no
reason for excluding tho general pub
lic, and that tho service would be In
augurated on Kauai In November.

Before one of t he largest audi
ernes that ever packed I he Tip
Tt.p theatre, Louis Rego defeated
the Japanese, Senzan, in two
straight falls Saturday night. The
first fah was made in four min
utes, and the second in thirty
Senzan was no easy mark in
fact he had the white boy down
several times, and only the fact
that Rego was oil' the mat with
part of his body, saved him. How
ever, that part of it was fifty-fifty,
as Rego had the Japanese in the
same position, when referee Chil
lingworth made them break and
get on the mat.
It was very plain to be seen that
Senzan was not on to the tricks
of "haole" wrestling, as he would
get his man at a disadvantage and
wouldn't know what to do next to
follow up that advantage.
In the second round Uego let
his opponent do most of the lead
ing. Uego would get down on the
mat on his knees and elbows, with
his feet under him where the Jap
could not get at them for a toe
hold, and just take it easy.
These tactics sorely tried Senzan,
who apparently had his man at his
mercy but did not know what to do
with him. He would walk around
Rego with a puzzled look upon hiB
face, trying to find a point of attack.
Finally after thirty three minutes
most of which was spent in this
manner. Senzan thought he saw a
chance, and grabbed for his man.
This is just what Rego nail been wait

Rego was up and at him, and in less
time than it takes to tell it, had his

"Colo 8" is a mlnaturo Hercules of
about 5 ft. 3 inches. In the flrst
round ho grabbed his larger opponent,
picked him up bodily and slammed
him down on the mat. The second
round lasted a little longer, but Lucas
had no chance against the "Colo 8."
