A BIRTHDAY LUNCH PARTY
Mrs. Arthur Wood, a niece of Mrs
Wm. Hyde Rice, has been tho reelp
lent of many social favors at the
hands of her friends, during the last
two or three weeks.
Among other such affairs, a most
delightful lunch party was given for
her yesterday by Mrs. Wm. Hyde Rice
to which some 18 guests vere invited
In connection with a mos delicious
menu there was an old time custard
the exact duplicate of one made for
her on her third birthday, the memory
of which she has treasured fondly
ever since. '
in connection with the. lunch an
original poem composed by Mrs. Rice
for tho occasion was read, and an
appropriate response of the same
character was made by Mrs. Wood
Both were very - apropos and added
much to the interest of the occasion.
Hearafter the Lihue sugar will go
direct to the Coast through tho Mat

from the Coast will come by the same
means. Ultimately the same service
will be rendered for the Makee Sugar
This latter, however, fs contingent
on tho completion of tho Ahukini
Terminal and Railway improvements
which will take some time yet.
This change of service will presum
ably relieve tho freight congestion of
the Inter-Island steamers, and may
somewhat modify the schedule of

relieve the passenger congestion,
which is at present unbearable.
THE RIGHT KIND
Two ,bona-fide tourists, Miss H.
King and Miss N. Brown, came over
on the Kinau last Friday and returned
Saturday. They had been warned,
discouraged, and almost dissuaded
from coming because of tho discom
forts of the trip and the steamer ac
commodation. They found however,
that the trjp was a pleasant surprise
and that the Kinau was a "fine little
boat." Even the midnight landing
had no terrors for them.
Availing themselves of the Gomez
service, they made tho Olekele trip,
Barking Sands, Spouting Horn and
Kukulolono park one day, and Hana
lei the next.
They were delighted with all they
saw and the treatment they got, and
had no "kick" to make about anything,
roads, weather, or service. They
are the right kind!

'. Kapaa Notes
Have you o'ver seon railroad cars
travelling ou tho Government road
without tracks? Wo were treated to
this rather unusual sight on Wednee
day last week when a string of empty
cane cars were hauled to a new sec
lion of tho Ahukini Railway at Wal
pouli through horo from Kcalla, with'
a truck as aii "engine1-. This hauling
was mado necessary by tho under
mining of two of tho bridges in this
locality by tho recent storms.
An unusual and rather humorous
situation has developed In the tvuwal
hau Winter League. The Allies and
Farmers played a game last Sunday,
this gamo being billed as the first
of a two-out-of-threo gamo series 10
dodldo tho championship of the league
The Farmers won, but at a meeting of
tho Kawalhau Athletic Association
held last Friday, It developed, accor
ding to the officiate, that tho Pacifies
still had a chance to tio tho Farmers
for tho championship of the second
series by winning a postponed game
they had with tho Allies. This
gamo will bo played next Sunday,
weather permitting,, and the humerous
part now comes in. If tho Pacifies
win, and kthen beat the Farmers, tho
Pacifies will meet the Allies for the
championship of the season. If this
happens, the Farmers will havo tho
distinction of having won a gamo in
a championship series when they had
no chanco to win the championship
A rathor bad tangle, but tho officials
report that the Allies and Farmers
played without authority last Sunday,
both teams taking it for granted that
tho Farmers had won the second ser-
The Rev. .Okumuru of Honolulu paid
visit to the Kapaa postoffico last
week ln tho interest of tho Kauai
Shlnpo, a weekly Japanese newspaper
at Kapaia. Ho camo with tho Inten
tion of reporting to the postmaster at
Honolulu the failure of the local office
to make delivery of this paper to sub'
scrlbers, but departed completely sat
isfied that the fault rested entirely
with tho private carrier hired by the
local Japanese colony, and not with
The story of the failure of many of
the subscribers of the Kauai Shlnpo to
receive their paper started early last
year when tho strike of tho Japanese
laborers on OaMu was at its height.
The Kauai paper is alleged to havo
criticized the action of (he Japanese
Federation of Labor in Honolulu, and
incidentally of the action of tho Kauai
Japanese in supporting the strike with
financial aid, etc. Those in charge
the Union on Kauai then, it is
alleged, declared a boycott on tho
paper, with the result that a majority
of Its local subscribers refused to
accept it. The mall carrier hired by
tho local Japanese, boing a pro-union
man, also refused to deliver the paper
to the subscribers,' leaving it in tho
postoffico to bo called or if any
subscriber wanted to read it.
When the strike was over, many of
tho subscribers decided that they
would continue to suscrlbo to the
Shlnpo, but tho carrier refused to
make delivery of the paper. This
action brought a complaint to tho
publishers, culminating last week with
the arrival of Rev. Okumura to try to
traightcn things out.
Rev. Okumura arrived without
knowing that the carrier whq had
been refusing to deliver tho papers
was not a regular mail carrier em
ployed by the government, and
therefore not responsible for his act-
Ions to the government, but was mere
ly a mail messenger hired by tho local
residents to receive their mail twice

When informed of tho real sit
uation, he departed satisfied that
Uncle Sam's representative of the
postoffico department in Kapaa was
not withholding tho Kauai Shlnpo
from circulation, as any subscriber
can havo his paper by calling or send
ing for it.

Crawford, W. D. McBrydo, C. A. Rice,
W. F. Sanborn, H. D. Sloggett, H. D,
Wlshard, and H. Woltors.
When seen recently Mr. Crawford
reported that tho business of the bank
locally had more than doubled during
tho last year, and that since thoy
moved Into their present quarters in
1913, the business had moro than
The consequonco is that their pros-
em quarters are' entirely inadequate
to tho needs of the business. Accor
dingly thoy propose to tako over the
post office section of tho building and
convert it all to tho uses of the bank,
giving much needed additional room
for tho public, in front of- the grating,
as well as much moro behind for tho
needs and equipment of tho bank.
This vill make quito'a palatial bank
of It, and a credit to tho community.
The large increase in tho business
has outrun the capacity of tho office

residence as well- as work, havo pre
vented the increase of tho force bo-
yond the present numbers.
The Bank will continue to serve tho

policy that the interest and well-being
