IN KQLOA STORE
Three robberies nnd tho calaboose
all in ono week is the record that two
Hawaiian men, Georgo Wilson and
Il.irry Chnnuan, of Koloa, have set.
And the fact that one of tho robberies
was committed In tho United States
post offlco makes it almost certain
that tho pair faces a long, long rest
. 1 1 -3t'ti supervision.
Last Frid'o night these two men
nio allogod to havo broken Into tho
gr.rage ot the Salvation Army building
of Koloa and to have taken a brand
new tiro off Lieutenant Haan's fliv
ver. They saw that it might bo hard
to dispose o howovor, and thoy stor
ed It temporarily.
The first act having beon success
ful, as far as setting away with tho
loot was concerned, tho men deter
mined to try for a bigger coup. So
late Saturday night thoy forced the
door" of the United States post office
at Koloa. The pickings were not as
good as they expected. They carried
way a revolver and three dollars In
As most anyone knows, threo bucks
aro not enough to run two hard-boil
ed burglars very long. So tho big haul
of the season was planned, the Ko
loa plantation store was picked as
tho place easiest to get Into and prom
ising most in tho way of easy returns.
About 2:00 o'clock Tuesday morn
ing Wilson and Charman pried open
tho front door Kof tho store. They
entered and began making a some
what choicy selection of their goods,
But they made the mistake of leav
ing tho door open. Whllo doing so
may havo facilitated a pro-meditated
get-away, it also gave outsiders a cluo
that someone was in tho store that
had no business there.
At 3 o'clock a group of Japanese
went by tho store on their way home
from the night shift work. Thoy saw
the open door and heard noises with
in .Two of them started to go Inside
to see what the trouble was. But tho
others dissuaded them and all went
Deputy Sheriff John Nalcmaile was
summoned at once. He got his police
officers and soon every possible exit
from the store was surrounded. It
was then an easy matter to take the
twothleves into custody.
The fact that a United States post
office was robbed takes tho affair
out of tho hands of tho local 'courts.
Both Wilson and Charman were tak
en to Honolulu on the Kinau, Satur
day. They will be held in Jarrett's
hotel until their trial.

The American Legion's Armistice
Day celebration has broadened out
nnd has now taken on tho aspect of
a Wild West show. This Is due to
tho fact that the steer tying con
teat has become n renllty, due to tho
co operation of Messrs. R. D. Moler
and II. Wolters, managers of the
Lihuo plantation and Makeo Sugar
Co., respectively. These gentlemen
have kindly agreed to loan tho Le
gion enough steers for their con
test on November Jlth.
The committee have decided that
owing to tho expense attached to
this event to limit It to the best rop
ers on the Island. Tho entry foe will
be $25 per man. First prize will be
a silver plaquo properly engraved
showing that tho holder is the cham
pion steer roper of Kauai for 1921
and a cash prize of $100. Second
prize will be $50.
This event will without doubt bo
one of the features of tho day for
the very fact that although there
are a large number of good ropers
on the island, the public has had
little or no chance to see them in
action. This contest should
bring out every expert roper on tho
island and will definitely settle the
claim of the many plantations and
stockmen as to who is tho best steer
roper of Kauai.
Each man will bo given the op
portunity to ropo and throw two
steer i and his best time will bo
taken. This will give every man a
chanco as It will allow a man a sec
ond opportunity in case ho has
bad luck on his first steer.
The rest of the rodeo will consist
of mounted sports and will bo team
affairs. A relay race, a mounted tug
of war, a potato raco and a stake
race, will consist of tho team events.
The last affair of the day, a maver
ick race, will be an exciting event.
All tho cowboys line up and one
steer is given a lead of 50 yards.
Tho cowboys then chase tho steer
and thb man that puts the first
ropo on him wins the event.
First prize for tho cowboy team
making the most points will bo $100.
Second prize will be $40.
Tho gymkhana will bo open for
riders not taking part in cowboy
sports. It will consist of four ovents.
Egg and spoon race, tho doughnut
eating race, tho dressing race nnd
the pig sticking contest. To tho
rider making tho most points in tho
gymkhana a prize of a silver cigar
ette case will bo given.
The following aro tho rules for
