Meeting Was Called For Reconsideration
Of Former Action On Appro
priation Fund
Roads Are Praised By Member of The Fair
Sex After A Pleasant Trip To
Koloa and Return
Meeting called to order at 10 A.
M. by the Vice Chairman, Mr. H.
D. Wishard.
All the members present with
the exception of the Chairman,
Hon. Marston Campbell.
The minutes of the two previous
meetings of the Hoard, held on
July 5th and July 15th respectively,
read and upon. change being made
in the minutes of the meeting held
Tuly 15th relative to the appropria
tion for Bridge at Kealia, the same
to read "iron Bridge" in place of
"Concrete Bridge," the same were
dulv approved.
The Vice Chairman stated that
the meeting had been called for the
purpose of reconsidering the matter
of the appropriation of $24,000, for
macadamizing the Lihue-Apeula
and Koloa-Lawai sections of road
That difficulties had been met with
in the matter of contracting for
this work and for various other
reasons he deemed it wiser and
more expedient that this work
should not be undertaken with the
Loan Fund monies, but that in
stead these funds or a portion
thereof should be expended in the
regradiug of roads in the Kawai-.-Imn
and Hanalei Districts and in
'any other Districts where deemed
most expedient by the Board. That
after the thorough regrading ana
widening of the roads, the work of
macadamizing them, under the
supervision of the County Engineer
and with the outht ot tne county,
could proceed uninterruptedly for
at least a year, or as long as the
funds of the County were aviable
for this purpose.
After a general discussion of the
proposed change in the work and
the general approval of same by all
the members of the Commission and
of their engineer, the following
motion, duly seconded, was made:
"That portion of the motion as
made and passed July 15th 191.1,
setting aside and appropriating the
sum of $24,000 for macadamizing
the Lihue-Apeula and Koloa-Lawai
sections of road, 6 miles at $4000
per mile, be reconsidered and that
the said funds be held available and
for disposition at some other meet
ing or meetings." Motion passed
Motion made that the Board of
Loan Commissioners should hold a
regular monthly meeting on the
first Wednesday of each and every
month at the office of the Board of
Supervisors, Lihue. Motion duly
seconded, passed.

High Praise For
Our Good Roads
After making a flying trip to Ko
loa Friday evening and returning
early Saturday morning, the writer
wishes to express her pleasure of
the fine roads which made the ride
so delightful.
On the return trip we had the op
portunity of seeing the men at work
and very busy indeed they were;
loads of material, great rollers and
engines being very much in evi
dence, Groups of tents along the way
testified to the fact that the men
were living near the scene of their
labors, making it more convenient
for them to be on time. When
completed they will have reason to
be extremely proud of the splendid
highway that they have evolved.

Health Inspector Cook, who was
appointed July first by Gov. Frear
as inspector for Kauai, and who is
represented by a Honolulu after

to Kauains, and as a result was re

The Garden Island office last Fri
day and to a reporter, stated most
emphatically there was not the
least foundation for such a report.
"To the contrary," said Mr.
Cook, "I could not ask people tp
do more than they eagerly volun
teer to do, and -it was only by
such aid I have been enabled to
accomplish so much more than I
ever could, had I been doing my

That perfect harmony prevails can
be assured any who may take the
trouble to inquire from responsible
Waimea citizens, with whom I
have had dealings since my arrival
on Kauai. You may say that
deplore the report which was pub
lished, and in the shorttime I have
been on Kauai, have been most
favorably impressed with thehosoi
tality of its citizens, and that upon
my part, there will ever be a strong
endeavor to work m hearty co
operation and perfect harmony
wiin my co-woruers, wJiom I'm
sure will beequally as willing."

always on the swing in Honolulu,

Room For Speculation As to Who Will
Win The First Year's Trophy
-No Walk-overs
A sensation was a feature of last
Sunday's ball games, when the K.
A. C.'s, the weakest team of the
League put the high and mighty
Kilauea's to slumber with a score
of 6 to 5. This victory, by the
weakest over the strongest, is indic
ative of great improvement on the
part of the weak team, or else some
mighty funny playing on the part
of the strong team. If the former
be the case, then Kawaihau is de
serving of highest praise, while if
the latter be true, Kilauea should
locate and dispense with its very.

When the news that the Kawai
haus had defeated their big antag

doubt was plainly visible on the fa
ces of the big-team sympathizers-
doubt as to correctness of the report
and wonder that such could hap
pen. Such did happen, however,
and the K. A. C.'s were kept busy
nearly all Sunday night receiving
the congratulations of their friends.

the source of much rejoicing among
the farmers."
From Hanalei comes the report
of the work of the Junior League
which was recently organized. A
game was pulled off last Sunday on
the Haena field between the Home
team and Hanaleis, the latter win
nine with a score of 13 to 3. The
came was a walk-over for the visi
tor's. The Werner brothers distin
guished themselves as usual by the
class of ball they put up. As the
weather was fine a large audience
occupied the grand "stand."
One of not the least pleasing fea
tures of the game in Lihue .Sunday
was the presence of the Lihue band
Good band music is so in keeping
with base ball, that it is a pity an
arrangement cannot be made to get
the band to play for every game at
