PORTO RICAN LABOR
COMING THIS MONTH
The news that Porto Rlcan labor
ers to the number ot between 1200
and 2000 are leaving by chartered
steamer for Hawaii, is cheering news
in these days of labor shortage.
Although 2000 laborers will not go far
in making up tho shortage, every
little bit helps.
Tho Bishop Trust Company circu
lar says, regarding this shipment:
"Messre. R. D. . Mead and R. A.
Kearns of the Hawaiian Sugar Plant
ers Association are at present in
Porto Rico recruiting C00O families
9 to be brought to Hawaii The first
group is now being got together and
is oxpected to sail by a specially
chartered boat some time this month.
It is probable that thero will bo from
1200 to 2000 in this group, depending
upon tho size ot tho boat. Especial
effort la being made to recruit as far
as possible married men who will be
accompanied by their families. This
recruiting has been undertaken with
tho sanction ot the Hawaiian, United
States and Porto Rlcan governments.
Tho Porto Ricans are already familiar
with cane-field work. Climatic con
ditions here aro much liko those in
Porto Rico. From 1900 to 1910 n
number of Porto Ricans emigrated to
Hawaii, tho number at present hero
being estimated at about 5500 so that
tho new emigrants will find a number
of their countrymon in Hawaii.
Senator Rice Returns
from Washington Trip
Senator Charles Rice, chairman ot
tho Hawaiian rehabilitation commiss
ion, returned to Kauai last Tuesday
morning from an apparently success
ful trip to Washington. Senator
Rice left on tha Kinau for Honolulu
Saturday night but returned to Llhuo
again this morning.
Senator Rico reports that tho re
vised rehabilitation bill has already
passed tho senate and that It will
undoubtedly pass the house In a very
short time. The first experiment in
rehabilitation, as soon as the bill
passes and is signed by tho presi
dent, will bo carriod on on the Island
of Molokal. The ontiro operations
will bo limited to Molokal for five
years. At the end of that time moro
land on other Islands may bo assign
ed for tho purpose, providing tho sec
retary ot tho interior and congress
okeh the oxtenslon at that time.
Under tho rehabilitation bill it is
likely that tho Kekaha and Waima
nalo cane lands will not be home-
steaded but released and thirty per
cent of tho sum thus derived used in
financing the rehabilitation project.
The present indications are that this
matter of opening up these lands for
homesteadlng will bo left largely to
tho now territorial administration
Senator Rice reports that tho great
est opposition to tho labor Importa
tion bill Is likely to be met In tho
house Immigration committee. He
believes if this committee can be pre
vailed upon to report the bill out it
will pass congress. And he has con
siderable hopes that they will do it.

INDEPENDENCE DAY FITTINGLY
CELEBRATED OVER THE ISLAND
Tho American Legion's Indepen
dence Day celebration was one big
success even though tho weatherman
threatened to break things up In the
morning by a series of showera. Tho
crowd which was a largo one, was
kept busy from tho time of tho first
race until the last man was out in
tho ball game between Makeo and
Thero was a slight delay In start
ing the races but after tho judges
got busy and hustled things up a bit
everything went off liko clockwork.
Hanamaulu will bo in mourning
for a period of ono month due to tho
fact that Johnny Fernandez "Bridge
player" took the measure of David
Luke's "Pegasus In both the quarter
and the threo-elghths. The time
for the first was 23 seconds and 30
for tho second. Johnny had a good
day as his "Black Jack" took the
Baby race. Tashima's "Sky Boy"
took tho final threo-eighths after
"Bridgeplayer" had been withdrawn,
winning with the fast time of 36 and
"Oneta" with Manuel Rapoza up
won tho Gentlemen's race with An
tone Reis on "Lady" second and
JImmIe Bordero on "Fool's Luck"
third. Adrian Englehart on "Huleia
Girl" also ran. This was a protty
race as there wero seven starters
and the result was in doubt until
"Oneta" flashed under the wire win
ning by a head. Tho rescue race
was won by John Martins from a
field of seven Btarters.
Thero was considerable excite
ment over the Cowboy relay race as
tho first time the teams got away to
a false start and the race had to be
run over. Tho team from Lihuo

their work ' that there was not a

bottle of soda water left when the
day was over. Many a so-called
star salesman could have got pointers
on tho fine art of selling by watching
tho ladles work. A man would go
up to ono of them and ask for two
sandwiches and two minutes later
would bo seen walking away in a

44TH INFANTRY HELPS
Makawell Plantation celebrated the
Fourth of July ono day early on Sun
day, July 3, so that their employees
could attend tho McBrydo or Wai
poull celebrations. At ten o'clock
Sunday morning a monster parade
was formed at tho stables and march
ed to Camp 4 and back. In tho parade
was every conceivable costume. Some
men rode horses, others mules, others
bicycles, while a few of tho highest
brows wero carried along In automo
biles. A. Q. Marcalllno was the
marshall ot tho parade and an impos
ing figure he presented.
In tho parade was also tho 44th In
fantry band, which furnished tho
music for all events. Following It
came' the infantry baseball team and
tho far famed Makawell princess with
her escort. Tho princess travelled
In all tho splondor of a royal person
age. Her subjects, however, seemeu
a bit boisterous and unruly nt times.
In tho afternoon tho 44th Infantry
baseball team played tho Makawoli
Plantation team. Tho score was a
bit one-sided, being 10 to C in favor
ot the visiting team, but tho game
was a hard ono and every point
At 7 p. m.'camo the grand band
concert in the now Community Houso
This was probably the best music
over hoard In the now structure. All
kinds of music, from tho masterpieces
ot the old masters to tho latest rag
times, was rendered.
Tho Initiation ot Makawell's first
patrol of boy scouts, tho Makawoli
Plantation Owl Patrol, was an Im
pressive coremony. Eight of the
plantation's best boys had been del
ected for this patrol. A finer Lunch
of scouts It would be hard to find.
"Tho 44th Funny Pair" of come
dians, Hemsloy and HIgglns, furnish
ed unlimited merriment. Their songs,
jokes and imitations wero all good
and brought a great deal of applause.
They were used effectively between
tho various pictures of the movies,
making a regular San Francisco Or
Following tho movies n dance was
given. The infantry band also fur
nifjhed tho music for this. "Nuf
said." It was a howling success.
KILAUEA HOLDS A BIG
FOURTH OF JULY LUAU,
AND AGRICULTURAL FAIR
Kilauea may be a comparatively
small community but it can put on
as big fairs, shows and celebrations
as the largest of them. It proved
that last Saturday night, Sunday and
Monday with Its shows, agricultural
fair, Fourth of July celebration, fire
works and all.
For the past two years an agricul
tural fair has been held at Kilauea
on the Fottrth of July. It was deci
ded to hold one again this year on
an even bigger scale than heretofore.
Tho entry lists wero decided upon
and suitable cash prizes determined.
All that was lacking was the cash.
At Kilauea that is a minor detail
easily arranged. Tho big show Sat
urday night provided that.
Featured prominently at tho show
was Fatty Arbuckle a la Alapakl
Smith, Mutt and Jeff a la Allen and
Richardson. If tho originals could
only havo seen themselves as Kilauea
saw them their acting might have
been considerably improved. But,
alas, they didn't.
Kilauea being a cane producing
plantation, what could bo moro appro
priate than a real sugar cane scene
on tho community house stage, with
the song "Way Down Yonder in tho
Cane Field" going at full blast. But
as the song was ended an unusual
noise was heard back of tho cane.
It didn't tako the "cutch cane" men
long to get the hindering cane out of
tho way. There back of tho cano
was a small Hawaiian hut with reg
ular hula dancing before it. Did the
audience fall for that? No moro than
Adam fell for Eve's little apple!
After tho hula camo a vaudeville
show ot local talent. This lasted for
some time, long enough for tho come
dians to take "ono good crack" at all
tho local celebrities. Then came
the real dance with Alapakl Smith's
orchestra at Its best.
Sunday tho agricultural and domes
tic science fair was held. Tho en
tries may not have covered as much
spaco but certainly there wero as
many vegetables and fruits on tho
tables as wore seen at either ot tho
Territorial Fairs. It would bo hard
to think of a vegetable that was miss
ing and local grown fruits were not
conspicuous by their absence. All
theso things wero grown by tho em
ployees of tho Kilauea Plantation.
If sugar should go so low that wages
would bo cut to nothing, tho Kilauea
employees certainly would not starvo
Cash prizes wero given for all tho
winning vegetablo exhibits. Special
prizes were given for tho best general
exhibit of vegetables and fruits, for
tho biggest pumpkins, etc.
Tho flower show showed that tho
beauty sldo of Kilauea has not been
neglected. Flowers of every des-j
crlptlon, somo that wo had thought
continued on page 8.
Chamber of Commerce
Back Labor Movement
A meeting of tho Kauai Chamber of
Commerco is being called for Wed
nesday night to endorso tho proposals
that tho Hawaiian Labor Commission
aro making to Congress. Tho meet
ing will bo held at tho County Build
ing. It is sincerely hoped that every
member will turn out. For certainly
tho Chamber of Commerco will havo
to wait a long tlmo before getting a
chanco to back a movement that
means as much to tho wolfare ot thl"
What tho requests that aro being
iTindo to Congress are should bo fam
lll.ir to all of us. Duo to tho great
shortage of labor In this territory, a
petition Is being made to admit -i
limited number of Oriental laborars
to Hawaii for five yoar. At that
imp they art to be returnal to their
native homos. It is thought that
such an Immigration would tide thu
Islands over tho worst of their labor
difficult Ins and mako tho production
of sugar remain possible and profit
able. There is somo opposition to such a
bill, of course. Tho immigration of
Orientals for any purpose Is almost
sure to be opposed by California
And It will bo opposed by tho labor
unions unless they can bo made to
see that tho movo will not In any
way jeopardize the white laborers'
chances and cut down tho prlco of
labor. It Is up to the various or
ganizations In the territory to show
these people that this labor really
is vitally needed at this tlmo and that
it will not in any way harm regular
LAND BILL PROVIDES
5000 PLAN7 AVION MEN
Whether tho Hawaiian labor com
mission gots congress to let in alien
laborers of not, tho rehabilitation
committee) has apparently got about
5000 oxtra laborers for the planta
tions, And these laborers are already
living right in Hawaii and aro all
ready to go to work.
Ono of tho provisions of tho rehab
ilitation bill Is that no alons can bo
employed by tho army, navy or on
any ot tho federal projects. Thero
aro about 5090 men so employed at
this tlmo and the signing of tho re
habilitation bill by President Harding
last Thursday automatically lets
them out of their jobs. They should
now bo avallablo for plantation and
other work. But probably tho Oahu
plantations will get tho lion's share
of them, since they are mostly em
ployed In tho vicinity of Honolulu.
The much mooted 1000 aero clause
has also been repealed. This means
that the individual plantations and
their subsidiary companies can hold
all their land in excess ot 1000 acres.
This will havo a tendency to stabal
ize.the companies whoso standing on
account of this provision was a
