More Men Are Joining
Kauai's Naval Reserve
Since last week when the news
of the new Naval Reserve on Kauai
was printed in the Garden Island,
there have been several more ap
plicants for places in the Reserve.
People who did not know there
was sucli an organization before
are "talking up" the proposition
and if Kleele doesn't look out,
their number may be surpassed ou
the Makee side of the Island.
The fact that an Eagle boat
could be kept on Kauai all the
time if one hundred men on the
Island signed the Reserve's roll,
is having its effect. Our own
little Eagle boat, commanded,
manned, and operated entirely by
Kauai men. some way touches our
hearts. Its something like the
old-time game of horse that we
used to play though, when every
one wanted to be the driver. We
will all insist on being captain.
This is partly explained, one Ko
loa man says, by the fact that all
a captain has to do is to give a
few orders and retire to his room.
Then he can be as sick as he wants
to be and take his own time for
it. But the poor old gob has to
shovel coal all the time just the
University And Experiment
Station Student Returns
Norman King, senior student at
the University of Hawaii, left for
Honolulu on the Kinau tonight
after a three months stay on Ka
uai. Mr. King has been assist
ing in the agricultural work of the
II. S. P. A. Experiment Station
on tins island. lie now goes
back to the University to get his
bachelor of science degree. '
The University of Hawaii and
the Experiment Station have an
agreement that is working out
very satisfactorily for both par
ties. The agreement is that the
Experiment Station is to take the
senior students in the sugar tech
nology course at the University
end give them practical experience
in the sugar fields or factories
during their last semester. For
this work the University gives the
students regular college credit,
provided the work has been done
in a manner satisfactory to both
Station and University.
The University of Hawaii is
fast developing the best course in
sucar technology in the world.
Model of New Inter-
The model for a new Inter-Is
land passenger and freight steam
er for faster and better service be
tween Honolulu and Hilo was
brought to Honolulu last Wednes
day on the Wilhelniina by Captain
Leb ('art is, the well known ship
ping man of San Francisco.
J. A. Kennedy, president of the
Inter-lshind company, returned on
the steamer from the coast, and is
reported to have perfected plans
for the company's proposed new
Captain Curtis, who is best
known in the Pacific for his abil
ity to salvage stranded and water
logged vessels, who has operated
on wrecks at Honolulu, is connect
ed with a firm of ship designers
and constructors and is its "live
wire." lie is here to appear be
fore the board of directors of the
Inter-Island company to show his
model and explain its features and
is prepared, it is understood, to
bid for the new vessel.
A. Andrew, also representing a
firm at Berkeley, arrived ou the
Wilhelniina, in connection with
the Inter Island's new boat and is
said to be prepared to make a bid.
The directors have met from
time to time to discuss a new
steamer and have now reached a
point where action will be taken,
probably, to authorize the building
of a vessel suited to the peculiar
needs of the Inter-Island service
Extra Reduction on
Reductions on freight rates on
sugar and pineapples, amounting
to 50 cents a ton, have been an
nounced by E. D. Tenney, presi
dent, and W. 1. Roth, general
manager of the Matson Naviga
tion company, effective June 1,
says the Advertiser.
No reductions have been made
and none are contemplated on
passenger rates, says Charles H.
Drew, manager of the shipping
department of Castle & Cooke,
The reduction will make the
rate on sugar from here to the
coast 5 a ton.
No other commodities are af
fected by the reduction.
A cut of 50 cents a ton was an
nounced some time ago and the

ON TOURIST BUREAU
Governor McCarthy yesterday
named E. II. Austin, an automo
bile dealer of Ililo, a member of
the Hawaii Tourist bureau, to
succeed James Henderson, who
has resigned. Mr. Austin was
endorsed by the Ililo chamber of
commerce. The board of super
visors of the county of Hawaii
had endorsed Frank II. West,
manager of a big contracting
company at Ililo and a spirited
contest ensued for the position.
The governor announced that
he had known Austin for ::)
years and this in connection with
eral cargo remains at .50.
That passenger rates are not
cut is said by the Matson official
to be due to the fact that the
transatlantic rates are much
higher than those on Pacific
ships between San Francisco and
NITRATES MADK FROM AIR

of them in Honolulu now and
they are being tried out on Ha

These nitrates are being made
in monster hydro-electric plants
in Norway. They are largely a
