Hanalei JrxH 16. With few ex
ceptions, the ci'owd of excursionists
which overall this place on the re
cent Maui-Kauai trip, was com
posed of a gang of hoodlums whose j
every action and speech denoted !
cheapness a n d a n extenuated j
opinion of themselves. As air
illustration of this, o'ie of the first ;
remarks one of t h e m m a d e j
to a clerk in the Hanalei Hotel,,
was," Have you got anything to i
drink?" When answered in the
negative, a howl went up which j
was echoed throughout the crowd
which proceeded to express it's dis-,
imst nt suHi n "slow old nlac." 1
Cheap excursions are all right,
but cheap people are not wanted. ;
They are much more welcome
in their own domain on the sunny
slopes of Punch Bowl and i n
"odoriferous" china town.

About four this afternoon , a

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-

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.

BIGGEST DAY IN THE

OF KOLOA
Kalihiwai Boy Receives
Honors-Schools i
To Close
(Special to the Garden Island)
Koloa, June 19. 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

Letter On Work
On Kauai
Lihue, Kauai. June 17, 1911.
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
