About two months ago tin Kauai Chain-l.i-r
of Comniere asked the Inter Island to
give us a steamer leaving Nawiliw ili on Tues
day niglits so tbat connection could be made
with the outgoing mail steamers from Hono
lulu to the mainland on Wednesdays. The
Chamber explained that tinder the present
system mail had to lie in Honolulu about a
week before it could be sent to the coast ami
thai this delay somelims meant serious busi
ness inconveniences. At the last meeting of
(he chamber a letter was read from the Inter
Islaud stating that action would be taken re
garding the matter and that a schedule suit
able to Kauai's needs would be arranged.
Well, tempus fugit ! It has been two
months since the request was made and al
most that long since the reply was received
promising a more favorable schedule. l'nt
we haven't seen or heard any more about that
boat. Every week a lot of Kauai mail lies in
Honolulu post office waiting for a steamer
the following week 1o the coast.
Ami still we patiently wait the Inter
Island's pleasure in giving ns the promised

,1 IlOVSEHOLl) TRAGEDY
The tragedy of the family at Puhi camp
thai was entirely wiped out last week by
botulism brings home to us the rare and the
precautions that are necessary in the use
of canned goods and some other classes of
food stuffs lhat are purchased even in the
Last year a wave of botulism swept the
country taking a heavy toll of lives. It was
a long time before the doctors discovered
lhat lite cause was improperly canned ripe
olives. A little later another botulism epi
demic became somewhat general. Canned
spinach mid similar vegetables received the
blame lhat time. The food specialists found
by tests that the poisons or micro-organisms,
whatever it is that does the damage, could
have been entirely eliminated by the proper
heating of the cgetablcs before serving. The
spinach was always heated to the boiling
point, of course, before it was served. That
was sufficient to eliminate the. poisons on
I lie outer mass of the foods, l.ut on the
inside was a portion that was not healed
as much as that on the outside. That si ill
contained a deadly poison.
The authorities that investigated the
spinach cases said that boiling or heating
the vegetables at least twenty minutes is suf
ficient to make them safe.
The fact that many people ate of the
same salmon eggs that caused the death of
the Puhi family, and that no other family
was affected leads one to think that prob
ably ihere was something wrong in the way
the unfortunate family handled their food.
It is said that the bought it several days
before they ute it and that they kept it in a
tin utensil during that time. That may ac
count for the poison.
People have used canned goods long
enough now so that most all know that as
soon as they open a tin cau they should re
move the contents. It's just as bad to buy
other like foodstuffs and to keep them in tins
of that description.
It may not have been the tin that caused
the poison at all. Hut 1he peculiar incident
makes it enough of a probability so that it
is a good. precaution not to leave easly decay
ed food stuffs in tins for any length of time.

SCHOONER MALAH AT RELEASED
The auxiliary motor schooner Ma
lahat, recently libelled by the Inter
Island Steam Navigation Company,
was released last Tuesday from fed
eral control upon the execution of
a bond for $30,000 twice the amount
of the damages the local company
has sued the vessel for. The Mala
hat Is still on the drydock undergoing
repairs to her keel and bottom. The
Malahat grounded at the entrance
to ATmkinl harbor several weeks ago
when completing her trip from Au
stralia to that port with a cargo of
coal. Steamers of the Inter-Island
company went to the assistance of
the stranded vessel, the company
now wanting $15000 for services It
alleges to have redered.

lulu, celebrated for its excel
lent cuisine, reservations with
board can be secured, and at
the Beach Annex, 2517 Kala

ed summer rates.
The oulstamling feature of the market for bonds during
ecenl months has been the heavy buying for ierinaneut in
vestment. Notwithstanding that this demand has resulted in a sub
srantial advance in prices for bonds in general, the present
outlook Scales a gradual trend toward the level which
prevailed some years ago, particularly as applied to issues
of the belter grade, which still yield a liberal return.
' It is doubtful ir it will be possible for several years to
purchase bonds at prices which will yield the return now
