Tne Kauai Young Mon's Christian
V Association Is to continue its work
notwithstanding the present financial
depression which appeared to threat
en its maintenance. This decision
was reached by the executive com
mittee which met at the residence of
the chairman, Dr. A. H. Watorhouso
in Koloa, last Friday afternoon. Ow
ing to the fact that there Is an over
draft at present of more than $3000
and that subscriptions to date will
not be sufficient to cover operating
expenses for the rest of the year ac
cording to the report of the treas
urer, Mr. Th. Brandt, drastic curtail
ment of expenses or abandonment of
the work as now organized seemed
Mr. Frank Athorton, chairman of
the territorial committee and mem
ber of the international committee of
laymen, who came over especially
for this meeting by special request
of the Kauai chairman ,was present
ed "with the facts of the local situa
tion and called upon for suggest
ions. Mr. Atherton's remarks were
not only pertinent to the case In
hand but fervid in commendation of
tho Y. M. C. A. as an organization
necessary to Hawaii's well being.
The editor of the Garden Island ex
pressed regret that he was not able
to get Mr. Atherton's speech In full.
He said In part:
"I believe for this committee to
consider a suspension of the activ
ities of the Kauai Y. M. C. A. or to
undertake to operate without em
ployed secretaries would be a step
backward., The Y. M. C. A. Is the
strongest force for Americanization
in these islands since it deals direct
ly with tho boys and young men who
are soon to be voters and leaders In
public affairs. A cessation of its
activities now would only increase
the probability of a commlssioii form
of government, a military govern
ment, run by 'the Army and Navy.
It specializes on men and boys and
gets them together under friendly
auspices: We couldn't afford to
give up such a cause. It Is a chal
lenge to meet the situation. It Is
short-sighted policy not to educate.
The Y has proved to bo a practical
agency in this field. I believe fn
the pollcj you are working for. The
heads of corporations realize its im
portance. Write letters to them."
Speaking on the subject of the
type of work most needed Mr. Ather
ton said: "Big entertainment features
are not wlso as a rule. We need
more intensive, concentrated and con
structive work. This requires
trained leadership and you must
have at least ono employed secre
Mr. Charles F. Loomls .formerly
county secretary of Kauai and now
Industrial territorial secretary, who
accompanied Mr. Atherton, joined in
the discussion which followed Mr.
Atherton's talk. The opinion of the
several members present crystallized
into the adoption of a policy of con
tinuence of- the work on a conserva
tive basis and. a renewal of effort to
secure the necessary funds. Since
tho resignation of executive secre
tary J. O. Warner handed in some
weeks previous Is to take effect July
1, it was agreed to employ one sec
retary only for the remainder of the
year. Mr. It. C. Macdonald, asso
ciate secretary, will act In tho capa
city of executive and reside at Lihuo.
Mr. Theodore Samonte, who has been
rendering valuable service as assist
ant in Filipino work, will continue in
the same relationship.
The committee then considered
ways and means of securing the rest
of tho budget. Several new sources
of revenue were suggested. About
$700 was also subscribed on the spot
through several members of the com-(
mlttee. Tho following gentlemen
were present at this meeting: Dr. A. '
H. Waterhouse, Th. Brandt, B. D..
Baldwin, H. D. Sloggett, L. A. Dick

THE MOKIti CLUB
PICNIC BEST EVER
The annual picnic of the Mold
liana Club was held on the beach at
Wnilua last Saturday afternoon and
evening and was an unqualified suc
cess from start to finish.
By five o'clock most everybody had
arrived and the beach presonted a
lively scene with tho younger cl
ement engaged In sports of different
kinds, while the hostesses and some
of the men folks bustled around
preparing the kaukau.
There was a grand rush to got

the assemblago to "come and got
A stranger passing that way would
have thought It a picnic of Boston

beans, and O, such beans! Wo did
not believe that such beans could
be baked outside of Boston. The
writer started in to establish a rec
ord as the champion bean eater of
Kauai and thought he had It cinched,
when his attention .was called to F.
W. Jennings, who had cleaned out
two pots and was still going strong.
Wo have a sneaking suspicion that
Mr. Jennings hailed from Boston.
Coffee, (with honest to goodness
cream), soveral kinds of delicious
salads and dainty sandwiches, olives
and sodapop contributed to the com
pleteness of tho main part of de

Just as darkness was coming on
the big bonfire was lighted and' while
the elder folks gathered in groups to
talk, and watch tho flames leap sky

played game's. Yes, it was a grand
success, and we hopo the ladles of

picnic at the same place in water

ted at Lihue and Kapaa. Tho pres
ent plans call for .one machine gun
company and one riflo company. It
is not decided yet which company is
to bo located at Kapaa and which at

FIRES CAUSE LOSS;
DAMAGE AT MAKAWELI
'A fire In tho laborers' quarters
caused considerable excitement at
Makaweil on Friday of last week.
Tho damago done was not vety
great, but It would have been If 11
were not for tho quick nnd efficient
work of a volunteer fire brigade.
Tho fire broke out In one of tho
Filipino's houses. It quickly burned
off tho roof and tho inside of tho
house. Tho employees of the plan
tation seized the - chemical fire fight
ing apparatus and rushed to, tho
scene. Two of tho chemical engines
were used in putting out tho blaze.
Charles Smith, blacksmith of the
plantation, Is now nursing a bruised
head as the result of his handling ono
of tho hoses. He started to turn
tho chemical on and began playing
the stream from the hose on the fire.
Finding that the volume coming from
the hose was too small, ho motioned
to one of the Filipinos to turn It on a
little more. Tho Filipino turned it
on with such violorrco that tho hose
flew out of Smith's hands, cutting
him on the head, where the nozzle

from tho executive committee of tho

Wireless reports seem to indicate
that the Senate Rehabilitation Bill
Committee Is not finding It all
smooth sailing in Washington. Mem
hers of tho house commltteo of the
territories have asked for further ex
planatlon of the thousand acre clause,
By this amendment corporations or
estates would bo able to own and
control more than one thousand
acres in this territory.
Senator Harold Itice and Attorney
General Harry Irwin urged tho house
commltteo to cancel this clause,
stating that Its removal would clear
up many of tho uncertainties of own'
ershlp of lands and would be of value
to tho entire territory.
Recently suits were started against
the Waialua and soveral other plan
tations for tho violation of this thous
and acre clause. They wero dropped
at least temporarily, pending the de
cision of tho committees regarding
tho advisability of dropping the
