"American and Japanese friends:
I said on one occasion when I went
to HUo with tho Press Congress
delegates and was called upon to
speak after dinner without any no
tice (and I was quite "dismayed),
that I love many American things
and I hato many Japanese things. I
have been called more American
than Japanese in many respects, but
there is one thing American that I
hate and that is after dinner
speeches. When I am callod upgn

KAUAI CHAMBER OF
In a special meeting held at the
Court house in Lihuo last Thursday
afternoon, tho Kauai Chamber of
Commerce endorsed tho proposed
wharf toll program. Tho vote
was not unanimous, however, some

was read, calling the Kauai cham
ber's attention to tho proposed tolle.
President Wishard slatnd to tho
meeting that the toll3 were published
' he Garden Island of November
lnth. Everyone had read and studied
them and was prepared io air his
opinion on them.
Broadbcnt Makes Comparicons.
E. H. W. Broadbent reported io
tho meeting that ho had compared
tho tolls proposed by govormcnt with
those charged by prlvatu enterpris
es at Ahukini and Port .Allen and
that tho government ohargp would
be much less. H. D. Sloggett called
the chamber's attention to tho fact
that when foreign freight is brought,
into Honolulu a toll is collected in
town. Then when the samo goods aro
shipped on to Kauai, another toll is
levied. This, ho said, works a hard
ship on tho 'outside islands, or in
other words places a pemally upon
anyone that lives outside of Hono
lulu. Six Millions In Wharves.
Senator C. A. Rico explained to
tho chamber that tho government
has already spent threo million dol
lars on territorial wharves. A like
amount is to bo spent in tho future.
Last year tho territory had to spend
forty-six thousand dollars in addi
tion to tho income from tho wharves
in maintaining and keeping them fit
for service. And tho $40,000 did
not include any interest on tho sink
At this point, the chamber's pres
ident suggested that the problem bo
approached from two angles. It
should first be decided whether tho
principle is right or not, and then,
if it is right, the meeting must de
cide whether tho amount of the
tolls aro proper.
The Bill Endorsed.
A. Englohard moved that tho the
ory of the tolls is correct and that
tho Kauai Chamber of Commerce
endorse it. His motion was second
ed by W. H. Rice Jr.
A half a dozen men were 'ready
when tho president called for com
ments. Frank Crawford said that he
did not believe the toll is any fair
er than tho old fashioned road or
bridge tolls were. He showed that
territorial wharves aro different from
state wharves, where tolls are charge
ed, in that tho entire territory Is
taxed for a wharf In any part of the
islands. But it California builds a
wharf she pays for it herself. A
dozen other places may ship goods
fom it however. So, It is only fair
that the other states should have to
help California with her burdeni
Senator Rico pointed out that if
this toll is not passed additional
direct taxes will havo to bo levied
to keep up and maintain the wharv
es. And W. II. Rico Jr. said that ho
belioved that by this tax, the burden
of keeping up tho wharves would bo
partly shifted to aliens who uso
tho wharves as much as anyone else.
A. G. Clutterbuck said that this
toll, small as it is, amounts to a
great deal to retailers and whole
salers of commodities in ovoryday
uso. Tho dealors havo to pass that
tax on to consumers. Mr. Clutter
buck belioved that a small direct
tax would bo better distributed and
After all tho members had express
ed their opinions, President Wishard
put tho question. Evidently none
had been much moved by anyone
elso's arguments. Tho motion was
carried but with tho votes In about
tho samo proportion as tho men orig
inally, pro and con, had been num
bered. A Uniform Toll.
It was then moved by E. II. W.
Broadbent that tho Kauai Chamber
of Commerce recommend to tho
Board of Harbor Commissioners that
all goods oxportcd from tho Islands
NEW WHARF TOLLS
should be placed under tho 15 cents
a ton classification, tho same as
sugar. Tho motion was seconded by
C. A. Rice, and unanimously car
ried. C. A. Baggott's Motion Lost.
C. A. Baggott then moved that one
single toll bo made for the territory
equalizing the wharf charges for
Oahu and tho outside islands, pro
viding the bill of lading shows that
tho goods were originally billed for
tho ouUide islands when they were
sent from tho coast. This motion
was seconded by H. T. Barclay but
wus later withdrawn.
Mr. Clutterbuck showed that somo
shippers did not use tho wharves for
all goods, in receiving lumber for
instance. Small boats aro simply
lashed together and tho lumber Is
never brought to tho wharf but
drawn directly up on tho beach.
Others pointed out the fact that
where surfboats were used the samo
service is not received as where tho
boats tie up alongside tho dock.
To compensate for these inequal
ities, W. H. Rico Jr. mado a motion
that where the boats do uot land at
tho wharves and where surf boats
are used in unloading or in loading
freight, tho toll should bo one-half
tho proposed rates. This motion was
seconded by A. Englehard and unani
Compliments Moklhana Club.
H. D .Sloggett moved that a sur
plus of ?39 loft after all bills had
been paid for the last Chamber of
Commerce banquet, be turned over
to tho ladles of tho Moklhana Club
who had furnlshod tho banquet. Tho
motion was passed with applause for
the ladles. A ' vote of thanks waa
also voted to them for their great
UNION THANKSGIVING SERVICE
It Is in perfect accord with the
true spirit of tho early founders of
America, that the chief executive
of our nation, as well as the Govern
ors of tho states and territories, an
nually invite the people of tho Unit
ed States to return thanks to God
for His blessings to the country.
Tho official public act of tho pro
clamation by tho President, and tho
proper observance of tho service by
tho constituency of tho nation exerts
a salutatory Influence and cannot
fail to secure for us a continuance
of Divine favors.

WAILUA HARVESTING ASSN.
The homesteaders of tho Wailua
section of the Kawahal district mot
on November 13 for the purpose of
organizing an association, to havo
charge of the harvesting of their
crops of sugar cane next year and
afterwards, and to act In co-operation
with tho general homestead as
sociation of tho district known as
tho Kapaa Homestead Association.
All but two or threo of tho lot
owners of tho section were present,
and there was a hearty concurronco
In tho opinion that the Wailua far
mers should work together in tho
different objects of harvesting,
cultivation, irrigation, and .all tho
thousand' and ono lines in which their
activities aro necessarily divided.
They also decided that in order to
get the best results tho homestead
ers will have to work in entire
accord with tho plantation at whoso
mill their cano is ground and to ac
cept tho suggestions of the experi
enced management of the same
whenever it Is possible.
