K. ..Gandall was one of the honored landmarks of a time gone by, whose importance we of this later generation do not fully appreciate perhaps. A carpenter by trade, he served the Lihue plantation in that capa city for many years, and there gained that intimate knowledge of the 'sugar business, which fitted him ultimately for the position of head 1 u n a on the Hanamaulu plantation, under Mr. A. S. Wil cox. This responsible position he held until the amalgamation of this plantation with Lihue. During the period of political unrest and upheaval, when it was exceedingly important t o have good .m.e n in Legislature, and when too, it was difficult to elect good men, he was prevailed upon to run for the Senate, was elected byatorge majority, and served in thauc-ipacity for several years, V proving an excellent and valuable man because of the general res pect which he conynanded for in tegrity, temper, and judgment , and because of his skill in hand ling the large Hawaiian contingent. As a political speaker appealing to the Hawaiian vote, he has per haps had no equal, certainly no superior, in modern times. His use of the simple, graphic, homely Hawaiian of the older time, is said to have been a revelation of the power of the language.. It is an art of which he was one of the last, as well as most giiteu mas ters. Personally he was a man of many rare and admirable qualities.

Yama guchi, a laborer on the Hanamau lu Plantation had been to Wailua -for the purpose of collectiiiK some money, and as he approached the ironwood trees on his rcturji. he was attacked by two Filipinos with whom he grappled and succeeding in knocking one of the,, assailants down, he managed' to extricate himself from the other. after which jhe escaped by juiming. On reach ing the camp Yamaguchi reported the matter to his friends who up on returning to the place-- of en counter, could find no trace of the Filipinos. , Some of these days these loafers will shout at the wrong "girl, peep into the wrong window or attempt a hold-up on the" wrong persoy. Morgan Thornton The Hanamaulu school cottage was the setting for a quiet wedding at 5 o'clock last night whe'n Miss Jessie A. Thornton a u d Harold Morgan were united in marriage, Rev. J. M.

Light On The Subject A plan is foot which seems to have met general opproval, is one which will give the community a lighting system second to none in the Territory. Supervisor Wishard is quoted as hvoring the scheme from the county's point of view in case the expense will not amount to more than one hundred dollars per month. The scheme would provide wires from Hana maulu to Nawiljwili, with lamps at intervals which will light the road from end to end. The idea is a bright one and it is to be hoped will materialize.

KM RALWAY INJIG DFAL Koloa Sugar Direct t o The Coast By Big Hawaiian Freighter The Kauai Railway Co., has received by the Alaskan, ten big regulation freight cars of the box car type which will be placed on the run from Koloa and McBryde. Heretofore the sucrar has been conveyed in open cars which while a trifle more convenient for speedy handling, was n o t so satisfactory otherwise. The rail road nas been placed under the interstate commerce law and there fore must conform with the re quirements, hence the additional stock of modern carriers. . ' The cars were bought from Orenstein Arthur Kappel Co. Pittsburg, Kappel, Pa., which is one of the largest railway equip ment plants i n the States. H. Hackfeld & Co., Honolulu, aro the general agents through which the sale was made, while the popu lar local representative Fred F. Lacks engineered the sale. The company is a 1 s p adding two modem Baldwin locomotives t o its rolling stock. Koloa Ships Direct Arrangements have bean per fected between H. Hackfeld & Co., and Alexander & Baldwin, agents for the McBryde Sugar Company, whereby the output of the Koloa plantation, adjoining the McBryde plantation on Kauai, will be handled by the American-Hawaiian Steamship line, the sugar being loaded on the ocean going wcssels at Port Allen. The Koloa is a 7,500 ton planta tion, and its sugar heretofore has been handled by the Inter-Island vessels, bringing t h e cargo to Honolulu, where it was re-shipped on the larger vessels bound for the Pacific or Atlantic coasts. Under the new arrangement the sugar will be transferred direct by rail from the plantation mill to Port Allen, loaded on the big ships and sent direct to the mainland, thus efTecting a large saving for the producers. Popular Girl Returns Miss Agnes O'Connell, sister of Mrs. A. D. Hills, and an accom plished San Francisco teacher who hasbeenspending an extended leave of absence as Mrs. Hill's house--guest, left for Honolulu last week, from whence she sailed for her home in San Francisco. While, here, Miss O'ConncH's pleasing personality won her hosts of friends who regretted her de parture. Miss O'Connell was the motif of a number of delightful social functions and like every body else who comes to Kauai, was enthusiastic over the beauti ful island and its hospitable people. She was accompanied to Honolulu by Miss Mary Erhorn, who had been the guest of the Hills for the past three weeks and Mr. Hills. Main Street Macadam Engineer Moragne with his gang of expert road builders arriv ed from Wailua yesterday after noon and for the next two or three weeks, will be engaged in re-ma cadamizing the Main Street. The recent donation by the Lihue Plantation to the County, of a ten foot strip o f land fronting the new town site lots has added sufficient width to make Main Street one of the most desireable driveways in the Territory. Fire In Koloa Last Friday night about ten o'clock, fire was discovered in a Ko loa cane field, which fortunately w a s extinguished before much damage was done, about an acre of cane in all being destroyed.
