session ahead of them as thero aro
no less than nine indictments lined
up for them to act upon.
Three Indictments are upon statu
tory offenses, three for assault with
a deadly weapon, two for first de
gree burglary and ono for embezzle
ment. James E. Ward, of Honolulu, Time
teo Aglabolb, a Filipino, and another
Filipino named Tomas, are all charg
ed with statutory offenses. Ward was
committed to the Lihue court last
month, while Aglabolb was commit
ted from Koloa last April and Tomas
was committed by the Kawaihau
All three men charged with assault
with deadly weapon aro Filipinos. Ro
mam Tanganag was committed from
Waimea, the alleged offense having
been committed last month. Allen PI
layo,' who is also charged with the
same offense was committed from
Waimea as well. Tho offense with

LEGION TO STAGE
Tho amusement committee of the
local post of the American Legion
has been rather dormant since the
Oriental ball and pageant staged
last April, now announces that It
is about to stago a vaudevlllo show
during the mouth of September.
There Is no doubt that tho Orlontal
ball and pageant was a distinct ar
tistic and social success but unfor
tunately it was not a financial suc
cess. This almost broko the thrifty
Scotch soul of Jim Corstorphino who
watches over the Legion finances
and he 'has issued an ultimatum to
the amusement committee that there
must lie no more financial, failures,
hence the quietness of the commit
tees during the past few months.
The committco has a wealth of
material from which to pick Its
acts for the show and at present
aro busy weeding out the material
that thoy cannot uso.
Several novelty numbers, which
according to tho committee, would
have very little trouble getting on
tho Orphoum circuit, will bo on tho
program and tho complete program
will bo announced shortly.

tion of tho post to spend it on tho

MAKES SAMPAN TRIP
UP NA PALI COAST
A party made up of Norman Hinds,
Mortimer, Percy and William Lyd
gato, Will Moragno, Richard Rice,
Bob Mott-Smith, Tom Morgan ami
Charles Fern, made a trip along tho
Na Pali coast last week in a sam
pan. The dny was ideal for the trip
the sea being exceedingly calm. The
party started from Haena at day
break and cruised as far as Milo
Hi, and turned back to Nulolo flats.
Here a stop was made and some of
tlio party fished while others in
vestigated tho rope ladder lately
put in place at Nulolo by tho Yale
exploring party. From here thoy
pulled up nnciior and cruised to Ho
nopu whore all hands put ashore
for kaukau under tho Ilonopu arch.
Part of the party then climbed up
the cliff into the valley to hunt
goats where they wore able to bag
several. Tlio rest of the party spent
their time either fishing or swim
ming. After the return of tho hunting
party tlio start for homo was made
and as a heavy wind had picked up,
the trip homo was considerably
roifghor than tho morning trip.
The day for the trip could not
havo been finer if it had been or
dered and there is no doubt that
If this sort of weather wore more
general that the trip would be ono
of tho most popular in the islands.
It was possible last Saturday to
land at nny valley along tho coast
oven a landing nt the rocky shores
of Nulolo valley could havo been
mado with case.
Unfortunately this condition is
raro, ns most of tho year heavy
swells and surf aro prevalent, along
this shoro making landing at tho
valleys exceedingly difficult.
