Judge Lylo A. Dickey returned
from Honolulu this morning "bring'
1'iE home the bacon." In other
words he got definite assurance from
Governor Wallace It. Parrlngton that
he would attend the ceTebratlon at
Nawiliwlli when the first stono of tho
breakwater is laid. Ho also got the
promise of Major Johnstone, the
hoad of tho project, that ho wo,uld
It 1? quite likely that an excursion
will be made to the Garden Island
from Honolulu for this occasion, the
Inter-Island giving special boats and
special rates to passengers. In this
case tho event will indeed bo a big
one. Tho Nawiliwlli harbor means
almost as much to Honolulu as it
does to Kauai and It is fitting that
a big occasion should be made of
tho beginning of tho work.
All theso plans are being delayed
however until the monster new crane
can be landed at Nawillwili. This
will probably bo within tho next
two or three weeks. This crano is
far larger than any that has been
used yet and will require consider
able engineering feat to land It.

Kauai Post No. 2 of tho Ameri

solution similar to tho one passed

mcnt of Somuel Gompers, president
of tho American Federation of La

plantation laborers in Hawaii, and
asking an investigation into tho same
conditions. It was necessary for

endorsed the action of tho executive
committee at tho meeting Wednes
day evening. The post wont fur

of tho American Legion went on
record against the adjusted com
pensation act, but since local leg
ionaires have been enlightened as to
tin true conditions of ox-servico men

tion of the disabled veteran, it is
believed that without a doubt that
tho local department will rescind Its
action of last year and approve the

SMALL TIDAL WAVE
An incident that might have re
sulted In a tragedy occurred at tho
Spouting Horn near Koloa last
Thin sday afternoon. A small tidal'
wave knocked down II. S. Simpson,
principal of tho Llhuo Grammar
sc'ujoI, and his wife, and gave a very
thorough ducking to Alexander Mc-
Brydo and Kennoth Baylcss. Rev.
Bayloss and Mrs. MIdklff, who were
otanding on a little higher ledge
of locks, escaped with an unwant
ed 3nower bath.
The waves were rolling exception
Uly high last Thursday. The Spout
ing horn was in its most bolstrous
spirits and many pcoplo from vari
ous parts of tho Island went to see
it. The parties named woro not
cinlent to see it from tho road but
wiimed to get down nearer whore
they could seo the water shooting
ibovc them and could seo the rain
bows In the spray. They saw all
tliiit and more.
Tho big waves seemed to run in
cycles. There had been an unusually
calm spell and the visitors ventured
somewhat nearer the Horn than
they would hove done a fow minute
before. Tho sea was as nearly calm
s it could bo last Thursday when
II of a sudden the big wave seemed
to loom up at the very edge of tio
locks and to leap over them. There
was no time for anyone to got a-
Mrs. Simpson was nearest tho wa
ter's edge. She showed considerable
presence of mind for instead of at
tempting to run back when she had
no time to do so she crouched down
and siezed one of the largo rocks
w.'th both hands. The wave broke
over her and then washed back. It
carried her hat but could not loos
en hor firm hold on tho boulder.
The other members of the party
wijre thrown down and considerably
cat end bruised. Their clothes were
torn, but, as somo novelist or anoth
er was wont to say, they came up
smiling. They left tho place wetter
but wiser, vowing they had un
doubtedly scon the Horn In its most
On Saturday evening, last, a de
lightful informal dinner was given
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clem
Gomes of Nawiliwlli the occasion be
ing to show the appreciation of man
ager Gomes, of Waimoa Stables, to
his employees for faithful and stren
uous services rendered during the
past tlx months. It was also a fare
well to Mrs. Bragga, mother of Mrs.
Gomes, who leaves shortly for Hono
lulu after a two months' visit with
her daughter and son-in-law. A few
of Mr. and Mrs. Gomes' intimate
friends wore also invited to partako
of tho onjoyablo repast.
After full justk'o hr.d been done
t.- tho puaa and other dainties, ably
prepared by Mrs. Gomes and Mrs.
Bragga, u most pleasant evening was
enjoyed; music galore bolng furnish
ed by tho host and Moses Rodrigues,
the "Charlie Chaplin" of Nawiliwlli,
who outdid himself with songs of
various nations. It was a real get
together between employer and oni
ployoos, and just tho kind of spirit
wa. manl.'cstcd which would do a
way, for all tlmo, with I. W. W. and
b.ilshovistic propaganda. .For it was
really a "got-together" gathering
which might well bo followed by
others who have tho interest of their
employees nt heart.
The gathering broke up at a sea
sonable hour, many thanks being ex
tended to the host and hostess for
a ical enjoyable time.
