Beware of These
H. D. Wishard, president of the
Kauai Chamber of Commerce, is in
receipt of a copy of a letter from
R. Porter diles, deputy commission
er of the state of California real es
tate department, written to the Ho
nolulu Chamber of Commerce, ask
ing for information regarding three
men reported to bo operating in the
Islands selling contracts to purchas
ers lots in what Is known as Uni
versity "Uplands subdivision at Ber
keley, under flagrant misrepresenta
tion. Mr. Giles writes in part:
"I feel it my duty to call to your
attention a matter which has been
referred to the state real estate de
partment so that you may use such
means as you have on hand to
protect Hawaiian investors from an
unwise investment which I under
stand is being offered to, them.
"There exists between you peo
ple of the Hawaiian Islands and the
people of this state, particularly
those of the San Francisco bay dis
trict, a very close bond of mutual
confidence and understanding which
must bo preserved. Hawaiians are
good Investors in California prop
erties and we feel that every effort
should be made to safeguard such
Investments and to preserve the
sense of confidence and security
toward such investments in the
minds of tho citizens of Hawaii.
"We are informed that cortain
men are or have been operating in
the islands selling contracts to pur
chase lots in what is known as
University Uplands subdivision at
Berkeley, under flagrant misrepre
"University Uplands Is a subdivi
sion on paper, located on a steep
hillside land overlooking the city
of Berkeley. This tract is undevelop
ed, has no street work, no water
supply, Is too high for sewerage or
water, the most of it Is too steep
for feasible residence building de
velopment and Is considered by com
petent judges of real estate to be
worthless for residence subdivision
purposes. It is contiguous to prop

California which extends up into
the hills back of the university

New Mexico and Oregon) under so
called 'Special Advertising Contract'
by which one pays 285 for a 25

this property ia desirable developed

"The watchfulness of the state
real estate department in Califor
nia make this state a very unde
sirable field for .operations of per
sons who are selling such property
as this under misrepresentations
and it seems evident that it could
not be sold otherwise as a cheap
residence subdivision. We have yet
to learn of any of this being sold
to local investors, although we have
received reports from various dis
tant localities where these men have
operated, such reports recently have
come from the Hawaiian islands. The
most recent from Aiea.
"We propose to bring formal pro
ceedings against these people if suf
ficient evidence is procurable and
we would greatly appreciate your co
operation in this respect. We shall
be glad to hear from you on this
subject if you cross the trail of this
proposition and we believe that it
would be a desirable thing it you
could find a way to prevent further
operations of this character.
"There are so many properties of
genuine merit in this vicinity open
to investment at fair prices that it
seems an unpardonable sin for any
salesman to foist upon trusting peo
ple under deliberate misrepresenta
tion an investment which is doom
ed to failure from the start."
DR. CRANE VISITS
Dr. A. A. Crane, who was from
1888 to 1891 tho government physi
cian at Makaweli of this island, is
visiting the teritory after an ab
sence of 31 years. He and Mrs.
Crane arrived in Honolulu last week
on the Matson liner, Manoa.
Dr. Crane was asked if he could
see much change in Hawaii in the
30 years that he had been away.
"Yes," he answered, "I .can, but I
prefer for you not to say that I said
so. I suppose that everyone who has
been away a long time Is asked
that same question and the same
answer always printed."
Dr. Crane is now located in Water-
bury, Conn. He was a classmate at
Yale University of former governor,

Observe These Rules
And Avoid Accidents
Several automobile collisions have
oocurred reoently which could have
been avoided if both parties had
observed the few simple rules of
the road that govern automobile
traffic. The rule that Is broken
most by taolcs and orientals alike
is the "keep to the right" rule. -It
seems to be an almost universal hab
it of all classes of drivers to violate
this rule ona turn where it should
be observed most carefully. Local
drivers seem to have a' preference
for the inside of a turn whether 'it
is the right side or not. This one
violation is the cause of more ac
cidents than ' all others combined.
Other violations that are common
on Kauai are passing a car on a
turn when the driver has no clear
view ahead and passing a car On
a hill when the crest of the hill
prevents a view of approachlngfl
cars. There has been several near
accidents due to this violation but
it will take a serious one to draw
the attention of the authorities to

form by Waldemar Young. It will be

As the screen affords greater pos
sibilities for detail in stories than
tho stage, those who have seen the
play will have the added interest of
seeing just how the scenario has
been handled. One feature which was
added, much to its value, is the
character of "Gloom," which does
not appear in the original play.
THE LOVE FLOWER
A real, honest to goodness story
forms the background for "The Love
Flower," D. W. Griffith's latest re
lease, which will be shown at the
Tip Top theater Saturday night.
The story was written by Ralph
Stock and appeared in Colier's Week
ly under the title of "Black Beach."
The plo is filled with an endless
amount of action and suspense and
is conceded to be one of the most
dramatic stories ever produced by
The story has to do with Stella
Bevan, whose father returns from
serving an undeserved sentence in
prison to find himself a social ail

between his unsympathetic wife Is
widened by Sevan's affection for

Bovan meets the man, Crane, who
has sent him up, and he and his
daughter decide to go away into
another life. Informed of his wife's
infidelity, Bevan returns and the

Uncle of Local
Woman Elected A
Bishop of Melbourne
Mrs. Fred Carter of Lihue has
just received news that her uncle,
Harrington Lees, has been elected
to be the archbishop of Melbourne,
Australia. Rev. Lees has been the
bishop of Swansea, England for the
past two and a half years and his
new position is a promotion in
every sense of the word.
Mrs. Carter's family are promin
ently connected with the Episcopal
church in England and Australia.
Her cousin, who is the bishop of
Gippslaud, Australia, recently went
to England for a vacation. While
there, in recognition of his good
work in Australia, he waa invited
to preach at Yorkmlnster, Canter
bury cathedral, Westminster Abbey
and St. Paul's.
Rev. Lees was very reluctant to
leave his Swluisea post for the Mel
bourne position. But he waa per
suaded to accept by the archbishop
f Canterbury, who said, "Your dif
ficult work at Swansea more than
fits you for Melbourne."
Ono cf Mrs. Carter's ' aunts was
present at the consecration service
uf Archbishop Lees, as well as those
ot the bishop of Bath and of Wells.
She described the ceremonies as
"The beautiful service at St.
Paul's lasted about three hours.
There were about 18 bishops pres
nt, all attired in red robes, it be
ing All Saints' Day. We sat in the
vhoir near the chancel and were
surrounded by friends and relatives
from both sides. After the service
Harrington (Archbishop Lees) and
Win (Mrs. Lees) had a great recep
tion on St. Paul's steps, handshak
ing and cameras to right and left
snapshotting the new archbishop. I
stayed at Christchurch four days
with them. Win and Harrington had
a great welcome at his old parish
and a presentation was made to
Harrington of his doctor's robes .and
to Win a handsome pendant. On the
following Friday the king sent for
the new archbishop, after which au
dience they returned to Swansea.
From there they motored to South
port to say goodbye to us."
"Last Friday they dined and slept
at Lambeth Palace and visited the
bishop of Rochester on Saturday.
They get no rest until they sail.
Swansea town ' and parish presented
Harrington with his archbishop's
robes, gold cuff links and studs.
And to Win they gave many hand
some presents too many to mention
now. Harrington was only at Swan
sea two and a half years but he is
much beloved and his departure is
"Of course, my nephew, the bish
op of Gippslaud, is delighted to have
his little uncle aa archbishop. He is
in the same provlnce one of the
four dioceses under Melbourne."

' English As It Sounds
Here is a singular incident show
ing how easy it is to mistranslate
an overheard remark.
Said Mrs. A, one of the overhear-
ers: "They must have been to the
zoo, because I heard her mention a
trained deer.' "
Said Mrs. B: "No, no. They were
talking about going away and she
said to him, 'Find out about the
train, dear.' "
Said Mrs. C: "I think you are
both wrong. It seems to me they
wore discussing nfuslc, for she said
'A trained ear very distinctly."
A few minutes later the lady her
self appeared and they told her of
"Well," Bhe laughed, "that's cer
tainly funny. You are poor guessers
all of you. The fact is I've been out
in the country overnight and I was
asking my huBband if it rained here
last evening." Boston Transcilpt.
