MR. LEGISLATOR, did you, in voting more
money for teachers, intend that those who had
givin time and thought to their work, and
those whose labor had hcen devoted to the
Island Schools for years, should, upon being
placed in more difficult positions, get exactly
the same salary as though they had remained
in the less difficult one? What does promo
tion mean to any business man? Advance in
salary, or having more work on his shoulders
at the same amount.
A delightfully informal affair,
much enjoyed by those who attend
ed, was the reception Thursday
night tendered Captain and Mrs.
John August Saletzke of the "De
fiance," now lying at Port Allen.
The hosts were Captain Geo. B.
Leavitt a n d Mr. Richard I,.
Hughes, and able-entertainers they
proved themselves to be.
The large lanai of Captain Lea
vitt's cottage, swept by the cool
breezes of Ilanapepc Bay, proved a
delightful place for dancing, while
cards were enjoyed by those whose
inclinations lay in that direction.
Those present:
Captain and Mrs. Saletzke,
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Hastic,
Mr. and Mrs. Karl Roendahl,
Misses Mable, Janet, Marion and
Maile Ilastie.
Messrs. Bole, Leavitt, Hughes,

Captain and Mrs. John August
Saletzke, of the Schooner "De
fiance," entertained a circle of
Eleele friends on board ship at Port
Allen Sunday afternoon, and those
who were brave enough to risk the
danger of "inal de mer" enjoyed
the afternoon immensely. In spite
of the day, t h e younger spirits
would not be cubed, and dancing
was indulged in on the spacious
The brisk salt air created keen
appetites, which were generously
satisfied with a delicious collation
served o n deck. The afternoon
was all too short, since some of the ,
timid objected to a perilous pas-,

launch-man after dark.

loss when Captain and Mrs. Salet

; Rev. Lydgate Gives an Interesting Talk on

During several days of last week
the Lihue Church has been a center
of much activity consequent on the
meeting of the Semi -annual Asso
ciation of the churches of Kauai
together with the Sunday Schools
and C. E. Societies connected there
with. From "early morn till dewy
eve, ' ' prayer and praise reports and
discussions were kept agoing, and
the church yard was the scene of
constant animation.
Among many matters of interest
the following are perhaps the most
The first steps were taken pre
paratory to the coming of the An
nual Association t o Kauai next
Summer by apportioning to the va
rious churches their quota to be
raised for entertainment of this
body and by appointing a com
mittee to be responsible for the
music on that occasion.
A request came from the Kapaa
Church for permission to solicit
funds throughout the Island for the
construction of a suitable parsonage
at Kapaa. The Minister there,
with most commendable patience,
has lived in a shack for many years,
under conditions of great inconve
nience, and it is high time that he
had a decent house to live in. It
being the practice of the Associa
tion to grant such permission only
by way of supplement to faithful
endeavors of the church making the
request, it was voted that the Ka
paa people should first secure $300
locally after which they would be
authorized to seek outside aid. 1
This was satisfactory to them and
they will at once set to work on
these lines The parsonage they ,
have in mind will cost about SSOO.
There was considerable discus
sion on the subject of church yard
cemeteries. The proper care of
these cemeteries involves more or
less expense, which in some cases j
falls heavily on the struggling
church, and yet the outside com-1
munity expects to use this ceme-'
tery. What should be the attitude
of the church? There wns a pretty '
common concensus of opinion, that i
while the church should be as libe
ral as possible, it could not fairly
be expected to bear this burden
without assistance, and that out
siders availing themselves of such
accommodation should make some
payment for the tune.
Under the head of support of the
ministers Rev. W. B. Oleson, Sec.
of the Hawaiian Board assured the
Association that it had been his
constant effort to raise the salaries
of the ministers to a minimum of
$400 a year. Kauai had been
much better provided for, in this.
respect, than some other Islands,
because of wealthy and generous
