Last Sunday was red letter day

to a beautiful kukui grove on the

they indulged inaiealo'd fashioned
Promptly at ten o'clock, a spe

crowd that ever gathered in Hana

bridge where, after a pleasant ride
of an hour, the party embarked in
two large boats which were wait

and soon had an improvised table
made from broken branches o f
Kukui trees spread in the shape of
an L. Around this table assembled
the gay picnickers, each being sup
plied with ample refreshments, a
generous helping of laulau, a bowl
of poi and all other accessories
necessary to complete a in o s t
sumptuous luau
The dinner finished, speeches
were in order. Director Souza, in
a few well chosen remarks, ex
pressed his gratefulness t o all
those who had in any way aided
in bringing about such a pleasant
time and hoped that the event
would become an annual affair.
Joe Rapo.o Sr., followed with a
very complimentary speech, re
v i e w i n g the growth of the
band from the beginning 'ot its
-history. He told of how it had
rown; of its struggles; and how,
notwithstanding all the pilikias,
f'the band stood todav as a mon
ument to the determination of the
boys to succeed and commended
them for their unity claiming that

being chiefly in praise of Director

band leader. His speech closed

was sounded and soon they were
floating down the river. T h e
V.ioats were brought up at a rice mil!
'about a mile below, where every
body climbed out and got in line
for a two-step, on a smooth asphelt
floor which' had been used for
thrashing rice.
In addition to two-stepping and
a waltz or two, an innovation was
created in the form of a typical
Portuguese dance, in which the
younger set frequently lost step at
the undisguised delight of their
elders. Hy far the most amusing
thing connected with the dance
program, however, was an iinmita
tion of the Japanese dance. A
platform was erected, upon which
M. C. Martin, took his place, hold-1
ing a Japanese umbrella. John I
Rapozo, for a drum, used a cracker
box, and for a drum stick, a piece ;
of cane. The rest of the crowd
formed a circle round tlie piaitorm
. and at a given
.Martin turn-
ed loose a vocal selection with such
tragic effect that the entire circle
was simply convulsed with laugh
ter. His expressions were so per-
feet and jesticulations so tragic as
to be easily mistaken for the real
McCoy, while Johnny Rapozo han
dled the drum sticks like an ex
pert. After a litte more than an
hour here, the happy bunch again
"got aboard" and enjoyed the ex
citement of a boat race back to the
Wailua bridge. Of course the best
boat won, but no one seemed to

If tlio plans of Health Inspector
Frank Cooke are carried out, the
public schools of Kauai will soon
be fitted with sanitary drink
ing fountains. To a reporter Mr.
Cooke staled that with such an ar
rangement, the chancy for the
spread of diptheria and .Such di
seases would be greatly lessened if
u o t entirely obliterated. M r .
Cooke made a trip up Wailua Riv
er Saturday for the purpose of dis
infecting the house in which the
Lihue diptheria case was discov
ered. ......
Of that tWO hundred and
thousand dollars to w h i c h the
Hoard of Health has fallen heir,
Kauai is entitled to her proportion
and the sooner she gets it the bet
ter as is shown by the conditions in
Nawiliwili at low tide. We would
respectfully call our worthy Health
Inspector's attention to these con
dition with a repiest for prompt
action. With diptheria all round
us and a stream such as the Na
wiliwili belching forth a daily sup
ply of accumulated, half decayed
vegetable matter, is a menace to
the health of the community. The
conditions in Nawiliwili call for
prompt action in which Kauai's
part of that $250,000 will play a
nuxt substantial part.
Representative J. II. Coney, Xa
wiliwili 's expert fisherman, bagged
a school of fi n e Moi yesterday
morning which aggregated three
thousand pounds. A sharp look
out is being kept for another school
which is said to be approaching the
same vicinity in which this big
catch was made.

Dear Sir:
A petition i point; the rountlH in
this community on which is incriU'd
the information that u port could le con
structed at Port Allen for the sum of
half a million dollars, whereas the cost
of the same at Lihue would In.' a mil
lion dollars, twice the figure of the one
at Port Allen. A-ide from the merits of
the two places, cun you tell me through
the columns of your valuable paper,
I definitely as to the approximate relation
1 of co-t of the two harbors? It has oc
I curred to me as well as to others that if
a harbor could have lx.n built at Port
j Allen for half the amount of money,
thut the Government would not have
dilly-dallied about a choice for such har
bor. Also would like your personal
I opinion as to where- Kauai's harbor
snotiiu Ik? located. 1 hanking you in
advance, I am sincerely.
As to the petition to which the
writer of the above refers, we will
say that there seems little grounds
for such figures as is reported to
be contained therein, since Major
Woolen, to a reporter of this paper
laid particular stress on the fact
that either harbor would cost al
most identically the same amount
ist identically tne same
, little more than a million dollars.

As to a personal opinion regard
ing the location of Kauai's port,
the editor can only express sur
prise that any man of ordinary in
telligence could not clearly under

personal matter. A harbor is due
Kauai and any one who will allow
