Nearly two thousand people gathered here to-, day to participate in the cele-! bratiou of the Fourth of July pro- j gram, which was by far the most elaborate in the history of Waitnea. Special trains conveyed the people from the outlying plantations. People began arriving before day light and by nine o'clock, all public thoroughfares were literally strewn with happy patriots. The contestants were eager for combat, and no sooner had the program been announced as in action, than there seemed to begin 'so many in teresting features that it was prac tically impossible to see everything at once. One of the leading features of the day was the ball game between the Port Aliens atid a home team, the visitors coming out victorious. The prize in this contest being a gift of twenty-five dollars' worth of athletic shoes. The tug of war contest was won b y the husky home black-smith team. Fernan des and Costa tied for first honors in the hundred yards dash, the judges deciding the race by spli -ting the purse. The first prize for the obstacle race was awarded to Keola Makrna. The mule race, which surpassed anything on the program for real merriment, was won by Robert Malama's fiery steed in record-breaking time. Joe Cos ta bagged the sack race prize, while Robert Malama slipped the hooks into the slippery swine. Arthur .Hunt, Jr., made a dive for the .swimming pennant, and won out by several fathoms. Keola Makina won first prize in a second swim ming contest. There were numerous other ex ceedingly pleasing and very inter esting numbers on the program, of which, unfortunately, we are un able to mention with any degree of accuracy, but this much we can say, however, without fear of con tradiction, that never in the history of Waimea has its people more thoroughly enjoyed a day's sport. Many expressions of apprecia tion and admiration have been heard concerning the highly satis factory manner in which the various committees directed such a gigantic affair. New Wharf To Commence Soon (Special to the Garden Island) Hanai.ki, July 3. M o r s e and Evans, of the Public Works Department, came down last week and are busily engaged in getting soundings for the new wharf, the contract for which will be let to bidders as soon as a report can be made and drawings completed. It is possible that the first of August will see the work under way. A Dangerous Bit Of New Roadway A little ways beyond Mr. A. Wilcox's house at Kilohana, where the new fills and cuts were made, is a deceptive curve which leads one on to a piece of the old road for several hundred feet, then gives you the alternative of a ten foot jump or retracing one's steps. Some dark night an automobile will make this turn; then who will pay the damages? Fifty feet of fence in time broken bones. may save a few Mrs. E. B.

Today's celebration i n Lihue was a tremendous success in every way, and never before has Kauai had such an entirely satisfactory and delightfully interesting day of sports. Over four thousand people representing nearly all parts of the island, enthusiastically cheered on their favorites and enjoyed them selves meanwhile. The grand stand was full to overflowing and lines of autos held crowds of in terested spectators. As the sports shifted to various parts of t h e grounds the crowd left their places to follow. Kodaks were in evidence everv where and no, doubt some verv pretty pictures were takep. In "the 50 yd. dash J. Fernaudes of Lihue carried off the first prize in 5 1-5 seconds.

That the children, as well as t h e adults in Lihue, had a remarkably good time also, was very plainly evident to all who attended t h e Juvenile Sports of the morning. 1 The exercises under the c a p a b 1 management of Mr. Mnscr b.-gan i promptly at 10 n. in. As the aspi-, rants to honors were many, prizes, such as pocket-knives, pencils, ru-1 lers, pens, dollar-watches, choc colates, etc., were lavishly distri buted to the successful competitors i in egg races, running matches, ; wrestling matches, bowl breaking contests and other youthful exer- cises. 1 Some idea of the number present I can be obtained from the fact that Mrs. Rohrig and Mrs. Ralph 4 Wilcox dealt out 3,750 ice-cream cornucopias and 600 doughnuts. The children's prizes and refresh ments were generouslv donated by Mrs. Dor.'i Iseuberg and Hon. G. N. Wilcox.

Koloa Celebrates Independence Day Altho all who ''nukl do so, did their best to make ' 1 Lihue or bust, ' ' th-re were quite a number of grown ups and children who stayed at home. For their benefit Mgr. Wilcox placed one of the plantation 'trains at their disposal. Under the chaperonagc of Mr. Scliem inelfeiiing several hundred people took the opportunity of taking a 1 train ride to Koloa beach and en joying a sea bath, returning short ly after noon. Later t n Hnsign Lyman held an amateur field meet for children. Over a hundred children were in this and appreciated the knives. cuff buttons and other prizes which they won, as hiartily as though they had been a silver cup.

The Ma kaweli's showed such marked ini; provenient in their team work'that the game with the Kilauea's on next Sunday, should prove the most interesting game of the sea son. The only costly error Sun day, was the wild throw from Ho nan to the first, which permitted the K. A. C's. to make their single, score. 1 Notice To K. A. A.
