He expressed his suffering in

They knew exactly what had hap

he passed away at 2:.'57 o'clock
only by a miracle.
At 2 o clock the report camo from
the Prince's clfamber that the

At that ihour there were many
friends of the Prince and Princess
in the 'home, some in and near the
Prince's chamber i others downstairs.
1 here w.ero Hawaiians present who
had always been close to the royal
family. All indications ' pointed to
approaching death.
Desired Modest Funeral
It is known that the Prince had
expressed a desire for a modest
funeral and even had said that ho
did not care for a state funeral
such as has been accorded to all
members of the royal family.
The wishes of Princess Kalaniana
ole had not been obtained, but it is
known that the Hawaiians, who
dearly loved their Prince, have ex
pected that a state funeral, in keep
ing with their titular rank of the
old monarchy, such as had been giv
en to Queen Liliuokalani, his broth
or Prince David Kawananakoa, Prin
cess Kaiulanl and Dowager Queen
Kaplolani, all of whom died after
tho monarchy was overthrown.
Only on Monday., the Prince, disre
garding the instructions of his phy
sicians, motored out from Waikiki
to the Country Club, walked over
the links and then watched tho foot
ball game at Punahou, but had a
bad niglit. The following day it was
decided that he was suffering from
a malady not yet discovered and
tho X-ray for which Dr. Hanchett
had asked disclosed tho heart trou
ble. Tho Prince began to improve
and only yesterday afternoon took
a turn for the worse.
The Prince will be buried in the
Kaplolani crypt at the Royal Mau
solemn in Nuuanu valley.
Twenty Years in Congress
For twenty years he has ropre
sonted Hawaii at Washington. In
politics he was Republican. His
crowning effort at Washington was
securing tho passago by Congress of
the Hawaiian Homes net, under
which ho hoped to rehabilitate the
fast dying-out Hawaiian raco by
putting them back on the soil to
grow up with homes of their own
in healthful surroundings.
"I am sorry that tho grand and
trial jurors of this circuit for the
term of 1821 now expiring, are not
present in court so that I could
toll them, personally how well I
think they performed their duties
during the year which ended,"
Judge Achi told the Garden Island
"However, I wish to convey my
thanks to them through the Gar
den Island. Both the grand and
trial jurors of this court assisted
materially in the conduct of the
business of the criminal division
during the past year. Thoy did ex
cellent work, understanding and
faithfully, performing their duties
as citizens for the common good.
"It being impractical at this time
to try further cases before a jury,
since the 1921 term of this court
expires by limitations this woek,
both the grand and trial jurors for
tho term now ending are hereby
excused from further duty, and dis
charged finally for the term, with
tho thanks of tho court."

The passing of the Prince arouses all those inspiring1
sentiments associated with the death of a leader at his post
of duty.
Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniunaolc was sincere, loyal and
courageous, and he possessed the peculiar kindness of heart
distinctly Hawaiian that is identified, interpreted and. glor
ified in Hawaii's Aloha. ,
, Ah a member of the Royal family of Hawaii he main
tained the dignity of his station with refined freedom from
ostentation. He understood the developing forces of the Pa
cific and was solicitous of the welfare and the highest type
of progress for his people.
Without sacrificing his pride of race or of nationality
that had been merged in the great Union of States, he
teas a whole-souled American.
The best expression of the sincerity of our sympathy
that can be given to his beloved Princess and of our Aloha to

Kauai Chamber Deplores
Move To
At a special meeting of the Ka-
ual Chamber of Commerce held at
tho Lihue courthouso last Friday
afternoon, the all-Kauai body unan
imously passed resolutions deplor
ing tho proposed reduction of tho
Cuban sugar tariff and petitioning
Congress to maintain as high rates
as exist at present. Tho chamber
also endorsed tho petition to Con
gress that the territory bo granted
Asiatic labor in view of our pres
ent labor crisis.
Tho meeting was called to order
by President H. D. Wishard at 3
o'clock. This being a special meet
ing, tho minutes of tho last meet
ing were not read. Tho chamber
got right down to brass tacks. A
letter was read from tho Chamber of
Commerce of Honolulu stating that
that body had passed a number of
resolutions concerning tho present
tariff and the proposed reduction
of Cuban sugar tariffs and asking
that the Kauai body tako such ac
tion as it saw fit. A copy of tho
resolution was read.
It was evident that tho Kauai
chamber was of tho same opinion
as tho Honolulu chamber. As soon
as the secretary had finished read
ing tho resolutions. Sheriff W. H.
Rice Jr., made a motion that the
Kauai Chamber of Commerco pass
tho same resolutions. His motion
was secondedi by Hon. C. A. Rice
and unanimously passed.
The resolutions are as follows
Whereas, from the press dispatch
es and other sources of information,
it appears that a powerful effort Is
being made to prevail upon tho ad
ministration at Washington and tho
Congress of the United States to
grant a reduction on tho prevailing
rate of tariff on Cuban sugars, in
order to relievo (he present finan
cial distress in the Cuban republic;
Whereas, It appears to this cham
ber that tho proponents of this
movement are actuated by a desire
to avert industrial disaster In tho
Island of Cuba, without regard to
tho effort that such lowering of tar
iff will have on tho homo Industry;
Whereas, in spite of tho present
tariff protection tho domestic pro-
ducors of sugar in tho United States
Cut Cuban Tariff
are at tho present moment, strug-
gling to carry on their industry
through tho present period when
the production cost is in excess of
market value, duo to over-produo
tion) anticipating a time when tho
natural law of supply and demand
will restoro the industry to a nor
mal basis; and
Whereas, carrying on, under theso
conditions, is at tho present time
straining the resources and finan
cial strength of tho domestic pro
ducers almost to tho breaking point,
and the industry can only regard
with grave concern, any proposal in
volving the reduction of the pres
ent tariff protection against Cuba,
which would beyond question ruin
tho homo producer with his high
cost of operation in all departments,
his income tax obligations and his
home labor problems, resulting ev
entually in extinction of tho home
producer nnd placing Cuba in tho
position of monopolizing the Ameri
can sugar market; and
Whereas, Tho Kauai Chamber of
Commerco representing a commun
ity whose industries are at least SO
per cent dependent on sugar produc
tion views with alarm the forego
ing facts:
Therefore, Bo it Resolved, that tho
President of the United States und
the Congress of the United Stales
bo petitioned by this chamber to
maintain tho present tariff on for
olgn produced sugars as a necessary
protection to tho home producer, a
nucleus of homo production being
also nn essential safeguard to the
protection of tho American consum
er against a control of tho sugar
trado by foreign producers.
Resolved, thereforo, that copies
of this resolution be transmitted
to tho President of tho United
States; tho President of tho Senato;
and the speaker of the House of Re
presentatives; the chairman of tho
finance committco of tho House of
Representatives; tho chairman of
tho finance committee of tho Sen
ato; Herbert C. Hoover, the secrcr
tary of commerce; our delegate to
Congress and tho representative of
tho chamber in Washington.
H. D. Sloggett of Llhuo then read
some correspondence ho had re
cently had with James A. Rath of
Honolulu relative to a petition to
Congress for additional Asiatic labor
at this timo. Mr, Rath had asked
Mr. Sloggott to head a Kauai com
mittee to get this petition clrculat
ed over Kauai and to cot it slim
ed by as many pooplo wished to do
K. C Hopper made a motion that
tho Kauai Chamber of Commerco
ondorso this petition and help as
much as possible In tho circulation fo
it. His motion was seconded by
ueorgo liwart Jr., and unanimously
passed. Mr. Sloggott then requested
I men from tho various parts of tho
Ono hundred and sixty feet of the
Nawlliwlli breakwater havo already
beer completed, Stones havo been
partially laid fori another -10 foot,
and tho prospects for tho work going
ahead at a moro rapid rato from
this timo on are very good.
During tho month of November
3,000 tons of rocks were, placed in
tho breakwater. December saw an
additional 5,250 tons laldt making a
total of 8,750 tons for tho two
months. As tho work progrosoa and
as the foundations are completed
the whole affair gains empetus and
speed. It is likely that as much
work will bo done in u single month
as was completed In any two
months heretofore.
At present Carter's point is be
ing cut away and tho big stones used
in tho breakwater. A stono must
weigh at least eight tons to bo
used either on tho sea side or as
a cap rock. Stones weighing not less
than throe tons may be used on ihe
harbor side. In tho center of the I
breakwater and at a point three
below tho water lino smaller rocks
may bo safely used. Stones weigh
ing between 22 and 25 tons have
been quarried and put in tho work.
Tho big shelves of rock are first
blown off with powder. At tho time
tho reporter visited the work CO
cans of black powder weighing 25
pounds each were being placed un
der ono ledgo. At quitting timo tho
charge will be exploded and rocks
and dirt for next day's work will
be pried loose.
The heavy rains of the. past few
days havo done considerable dam-
ago to tho roads. Considerable
quantities of sticky adobe soil have
been washed down on tho road
from above, making it necessary
for Superintendent Garlinghouse to
put several men to clearing of tho
debris. In other places tho road
was washed out, necessitating con
siderable filling.
This work is being done by day
labor rather than by contract. Sinco
about half of the material and work
ing tools were donated to tho pro
jeet from tho surp'lus army equip
ment purchased during tho war, It
is likely that this form of labor
will bo less expensive. A contractor
would havo to spend considerable
In the initial layout before ho could
start work.
Tho railroad Is nil standard gauge
and this Is necessary on account
of the heavy and cumborsomo
cranes that move over and work
on tho tracks. This gives Kauai
tho distinction of having tho only
standard gauge railroad in tho ter
ritory. 4
J. K.
Rev. ,James K. Lola, at present
pastor of the Hawaiian church at
Kohala, Hawaii, has accepted tho
commission of deputy sheriff for
tho district of Hanalei, recently loft
vacant by tho death of William Wer

Sheriff William Rico expresses
great atisfaction in having senured
tho acceptance of Mr. Lotn to this
office and Is satisfied that tho ap
pointment will meet with gonoral
approval of tho residonts of Hana

Rov. Lota is a Kauai boy, having
been born and roared in tho district
ho is now to serve as its deputy
sheriff. Ho entered tho ministry
several years ago and has been do
ing a wonderful work among his

in getting tho signatures. Tho num
ber that imemdlately responded was
good ovldenco that n real need is
felt for tho additional labor nnd
that tho petition will bo well re
ceived. II. I). Sloggett called tho cham
ber's attention to tho - M. C. A.
thrift campaign and asked for nn
appropriation to help carry It on.
But as tho mooting was a special
one, his suggestion was ruled out
of order. Tho chamber gavo ovldenco
of Its willingness to help In tho
matter hdwever and thero Is llttlo
doubt but that If this subject is
brought up in tho next regular meet
ing it will meet with hearty ap
proval. Miss. C. Adalnlde Barker, form

The Ahuklnl Terminal ami Rail
way company has now completed
its track so that It can ship sugar
directly from Kealla and plnoapples
from the Hawaiian cannery at Ka
paa to tho wharf at Ahuklnl. Tho
steamship Claudino took its first
load of pineapples from Ahuklnl
last Saturday, carrying 6,130 cases
of Kauai fruit. Up until Saturday
night 7,200 cases have been trans

surplus remaining in tho wurehouse
until the next boat.
This railroad now connects Li
