Geo. Fairchild to Be
That George Fairchild, former Sen
ator from Kauai and manager of the
Makee Sugar Company, is to be the
governor-general of the Philippines
seems to be assured according to in
formation received by the Advertiser.
That paper received word that shortly
after the inauguration of President
Harding, George Fairchild, former
senator from Kauai and for many
years identified with the plantation
interests of Hawaii, will be appointed
governor-general of the Philippines
to succeed Francis Burton Harrison.
Information received by the Adver
tiser from Manila says that so far has
the movement gone out there to have
the former Honolulu man appointed
head of the insular government that
it is considered certain he will be one
of the new president's first appointees
It has been known for several
months in certain quarters in Hono
lulu that Fairchild was being consid
ered in Manila as the successor of
While almost from the time he
first went out to those islands as the
representative of large sugar interests
in these islands, his capabilities were
recognized, and the fact that he has
been the only man out there who has
ever been able to bring outside cap
ital into the islands for the develop
ment of the sugar industry and sugi-r
there, like in Hawaii, is the staple
crop and one that will eventually
solve the economic problems of the
country has given him splendid
standing with the men who count.
The American business men of the
islands, who have borne the brunt of
the economic battle, have seen in Fair
child a man of extraordinary ability,
not only as a business man, but as an
executive, and during the last two
years, when there has been talk of a
successor to Harrison in the event of
a Republican victory this year. Fair
child's name has been mentioned
When the congressional party
visited the Philippines last June, a
deluge of anti-American sentiment
swept over the islands, fostered by
the native politicians. The Spanish
and vernacular press became positi
vely rabid in their vitupeation, and at
this stage of the situation Fairchild
went to bat. He purchased the con
trolling interest in the Manila Times
and many powerful editorials written
by himself, began to appear, in which
he told the native politicians that they
were due to "head in."
Fairchild's vigorous attitude in
what was considered a very ticklish
situation won the admiration of cer
tain members of the congressional
party, and it is understood that upon
their return to the mainland the for
mer senator from Kauai was proposed
to Senator Harding as the next gov
ernor-general of the islands.
WIERD LOOKING FISH GIVEN TO
Said to be the only one of the spec
ies ever found in local waters, a "Sun"
or "Head" fish, caught with a hook in
about 20 fathoms of water off the
coast of Kauai, has been turned over
to the Bishop Museum, and a cast
will shortly be placed on exhibition,
says the Star Bulletin.
After consulting booka.experts at
the museum say they have been un
able to find any data exactly describ
ing this peculiar species. The fish
is oval in shape, and is colored dark
gray on the body and black on the
two large fins. It has no tail, the
body ending abruptly where the vent
ral and dorsal fins, which are about
15 inches long, protrude. Theweight
Is about 70 pounds. The breadth
from the fin tips Is three feet, seven
inches, and the length three feet, five
The mouth is small, with the teeth
fused, and the eyes are large. The
fish is believed to have fed on moll
usks and crustaceans requiring crush
ing. A fish having a body similar to the
fish just taken was caught at Pearl
Harbor some years ago and sent to
Stanford University by C. B. Wilson,
father of Mayor John H. Wilson.
The body of the fish probably will bo

GROWING IN FAVOR
At a meeting of the Hul Hele Loa,
or Trail and Mountain Club, held last
week at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Lydgate, after careful consideration it
was decided that ordinarily 25 is about
the limit for an outing. A larger
body becomes unwfeldy and involves
serious problems of transportation,
Accordingly it was deemed wise to
organize a new section to accomodate
any who may wish to Join the same

If such candidates will give their
names to the secretary, Miss Soule,

about stories coming to him to the
effect that he was not wanted on

him in Honolulu after the Fourth of

investigated by the Athletic Commi

the rumors were without even the
slightest basis and seem to have
started in Honolulu.
