About four this afternoon , a Japanese was observed to apparent ly lose control of a bike which he was riding, and to dash down the hill at a terrific speed. He brought up near the foot of the hill with such a suddeness as to put his machine completely out of com- i nnccinti sinn tri uri Mini cnr.nu. lin The rider was painfullv uriaA aA mmm.m s,fJ ' " j ..... The second accident occurred shortly after, when Harold Morgan, teller of the Bank at Lihue, while attempting to ascend a hill in hopes of getting up speed for a climb up the next grade, felt something sud denly go wrong with his gearing and before he could apply the brake, he was given his first lesson in aviation. Not being able to choose his falling position, h e landed simply "all over the road." He was not seriously injured but the motorcycle was damaged to such an extent as to cause hi m to order a car from Waimea to take him to Lihue. The drive chain jumping and becoming caught in the gearing was responsible for the accident. The third accident happened shortly after when a horse attached to a vegetable wagon being driven by a filipino came tearing down the hill. There were three men in the wagon all of whom were too badly frightened to jump. On reaching the foot of the hill, the wagon took a swerve and went over the embankment, spilling the occupants in every direction. One man received serious injury, the two others being more frightened than hurt. The wagon was wrecked, while the horse was painfully bruised aud considerably cut.

Special base ball trains, the Holy Ghost cele bration, baseball, basketball, and last but by no means least, the neat and nifty Lihue band with it's enchanting music and elegant new instruments, all combined to make this a day long to be remembered as the biggest day ever seen in Koloa. More than a thousand peo ple thronged the streets, dividing their attention as fancy dictated. between the various attractions. In; the early part of the day, the peo ple began to assemble to take part; in the Holy Ghost Feast. The ar-; rival of the Lihue band was shortly i followed by a special train bringing i the Makaweh ball team. The big gest sensation, however, was the arrival of automobiles filled with the pretty girls of the Waimea bas ketball team, all dressed in their black and gold. They won the hearts of hundreds of spectators as easily as they won the game from the home team. Koloa had enough hospitality to make sveryone feel perfectly hap py and to long for repetition of the day's program. The weather was ideal and autos, filled with gaily dressed pleasure seekers from all parts of the island, were lined up by the scores. The day was so full of real joy that Old Sol had smiled his good-night appro val on the day's doings and passed into sweet repose, ere the last auto had turned the corner homeward, j ROBERT MAHIKOA WiNS SCHCn;.S HONOR CUP (Social to the f I:- ten Island) Kalihiwai, J u r o 16.- Robert Mahikoa, son of Mr. Geo.

Kditor Gakdkn Island Dear Sir: Twenty-one years ago next month I spent a few days on Kauai just before my removal from Ha waii nei. You ask me to give you some impressions of the Island as I see it today as compared with my former visit. My first im pression is of your splendid roads. Your enterprise in grading and macadamizing, what might be call ed your belt-line public highway, is to be highly commended. At the time of my first visit I traveled entirely on horseback, while now, by the kindness of my friend, Mr. W. H. Rice, Sr., I am carried everywhere in his beautiful motor car. Where I spent a day twenty one years ago between points, he carries me in two or three hours. The auto had not arrived then, now it possesses the land. An other striking change is the exten sion of the cane fields. It is simply wonderful what has l)een done in this direction. At my first visit I was greatly interested in going over the mill at Kealia and study ing the diffusion process there in use. I have often spoken of it. I return to find that it has been rejected and everywhere the mas ceration process is being used. In other words your up-to-dateness in these things is in striking evi dence everywhere. Do I wish to j talk to Honolulu, your wireless is Continued on page 2. Col. 2. .. WAIMEA BASKETBALL TEAM CELEBRATES FIRST VICTORY (Special to the Garden Island) Waimha, June 20.
