Kauai Annateus Athletic Association, Dear Sir: We do hereby protest the game played at Lihue Ball Park on Sun day, Aug. 17th, 1913 between the Makaweli's and Koloa's on the following ground, viz. Jos. Fassoth 1st. batter up in the ninth inning was declared out. Jno. Costa next man up hit to left field which rolled under Smith's auto, hitting an auto accupied by Mrs. Kula, Mrs. HI Blake and Miss Kalawe thereby bouncing in the air and caught by Audrade and returned to 2nd. base which went through 2nd. baseman to 1st. base and then relayed to 3rd. base said runner Jno. Costa being call ed out by Base Umpire, but said decision was reversed by the Chief Umpire Mr. Fernandez on the grounds that said ball out in left field had been returned to left field er by a spectator such not being the fact. On the ground we protest and pray for a hearing. Yours very respectfully, H. M. Honan, Capt. Koloa Athletic Club, A special meeting of the Direc tors of the K. A. A. A. was held last Wednesday to consider the above protest of the Kojoa team. Both umpires were present and in terviewed. After a long discursion, the point was held, that if the umpire in chief. Mr. Fernandes still consid ered the play ..v'question a block ball, then the decision must stand as given, it being a play to be de cided by the umpires judgement, as laid down in Rule 63, Spalding, B. B. Guide. r Mr. Fernandes stated, that in his judgement the ball after being hit by Costa went under an automo bile, and that he saw the arm and shoulder of some person not iden tified, passed the ball to the left fielder, who then relayed it into play in the manner described in the protest. Except for this blocking of the ball, Costi would have been out at third, but upon this block alone he called him safe. Mr. Fer nandes firmly adhering tc his view of the case, the Directors after due consideration had no recourse but to find in accordance with the Rules, and by a vote of 6 to 1, threw but the Koloa protest and let the game go to Makaweli. WAIAU ON THE RACK "I am a dangerous man this morning." These were the words utterred by Henry Wainu last Tuesday upon trying to enter the home of Mrs. Kahele where Mrs. Waviu was staving. In the subsequent conversation which followed, he intimated his intention of killing his wife, his mother-in-law and himself. He was refused admittance by Mrs. Kahele who told Waiau that his wife would not see him and did not want anything further to do with him. He was placed under arrest but later released upon fur nishing bond to the amount of $200. The case will come up Friday. Ineneo both fouled to Kane. No runs. ' Makaweli. Kruse struck out. I.

Glaisyer underwent a slight operation at Lihue Hos nital last Friday and is reported as getting along nicely, NOT ALLOWED LIHUE S NEW ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEM Born of nothing it leaps to life and in the short space of one second of time lives a thousand lives dies a thousand deaths and still lives on. Thus has one o f our modern poets so ably described that won dertully useful yet infinitely in tangible modern convenience Electricity. Lihue may congratulate itself on having one of the most efficient. power plants that modern engineer-" ing can produce; no expense o r detail was overlooked in the con struction of the plant, that could possibly contribute to providing a first class up-to-date system. The power house itself situated about eight miles from Lihue lies coselv ensconced in a deep saucer like depression just beyond the ridge followed by the Wainiha pole line. 4 As one looks down from the trail several hundred feet abov'e the power house and nearly a niile. away from it, one is attractedjby the loud hum of the machinery anl sees the foam churned water r, as lit to $le passes from the turbines to stream a little beyond. One can not fail to be suddenly broughfVfo realize tne invasion ot com mercialism in the heart of the' sub tropical Hawaiian foot hills. The plant derives its source, of power from the Waiahi streamY T w o tunnels h ve been con? structed known as the north an"d' south intakes. The former, is ioxrt miles16rig and the latter'just'haTf'1 as long. These are divided up at" certain intervals by deep cavities giving access to the tunnel way, and nearer the hydrostatic head b y spillways by the aid of which the main volume of water may be re gulated. On leaving the tunnels the water ,i s brought through a' conciete canal way to a capacious surge head 207 ft. above the level of the water wheels below. From the surge head a thirty inch pipe con ducts the stream to the entrance to the power house, where the water way divides into two branches, one branch leading to each turbine. The turbines are of the pelton type direct connected each to a 250 Kv. Amp. capacity alternating 3 phase current generator, turning them at 347 revolutions per.niinute. Demands for sudden increased output from the generators are in stantly met by means of automatic valves which are operated by finely adjusted oil governors. An increase in the load causes the water valves to open thus increasing the volume ot water admitted t o the wheels a n d corresponding increase i n speed and output of the machines. Diiuinislunents in the load cause a closing of the valves preventing the machines from racing at too high a speed thus giving excessive voltage. The power house is constructed of concrete and well enforced steel work. Overhead cranes on steel runways provide an easy means for moving or dismatling some of the more heavy pieces of machinery. Under ground couduicts lead the main current from the generators to the switchboard and transformer room. The former is well equipped with every varietv o f meter, in cluding synchronisers, frequency meters and phase meters. The transformer room is a small concrete building added on to the main house, containing a set of four water cooled transformers. Here the current from the machines which has a voltage, of about 2.250 is transformed to 16,500 volts for transmission over the six mile high tension line to Lihue. There are over 230 re-eniorced concrete poles bearing the wires of this line, being as strong a n d durable as they possibly could be made. The high tension line enters the I substation a t Kapaia where the current i s transformed through enormous oil transformers from A AND BY-LAWS The second meeting of the Kau ai Chamber of Commerce was held at Lihue Hall last Thursday. The object of this meeting was the ap proval and adoption of the by-laws prepared by the committee appoint ed for that purpose at the first meeting of the Chamber, to ap point a board of directors ,and a delegation t o attend the second annual convention of the Chamber of Commerce. Merchant's Assoei- ition and Commercial Club of Ho nolulu 'which convenes September 17th. After the reading of he minutes of the previous meeting the matter of the by-laws was taken up.

Ihe election of a board of direc tors was next in order and the fol lowing members were elected to compose that body: The President, Secretary and Treasurer, ex-ofiicio: Cirl Baver, Gustav Hansen, Frank Alexander, and Gaylord Wilcox. The matter ot a delegation to at tend the convention in Honolulu was then taken up and it was de cided that President Rohrig, Secre tary Behr and Treasurer Mahlum would be the' proper persons to undertake that important work. The delegates were instructed to invite the civic bodies of Honolu lu, Maui and Hawaii to hold the next annual convention on Kauai asithe guests of the Kauai Cham- ber'of Commerce.

From the substation main feeders are led to distributing boards located in Lihue and Hauamaulu mills, from whence current goes out "to the residence transformers to be stepped down from 2,200 volts to 110, from which we derive our light and power. A unique feature about the local plant is its exclusive use of re-enforced concrete poles, i t being among the very first to adopt them. Their appearance is neat and substantial.

(MIS CHAMBER QF COMMERCE Kauai may now feel competent to keep step with the foremost progressive communities. With a chamber of commerce to take up matters which need improving and to officially voice t h e long felt, wants of the community it should be an easy matter i f all put their shoulder to the wheel of co-operation for Kauai to forge ahead, to the mutual benefit of not only the merchant and the planter but to every member of the island com munity.' With such an official body in ex istence composed of members with divers interests from every part of tne island the deciding of vita, matters should be greatly faciliated. Had there been such a body in ex istence at the time of the harbor and wharf controversy a mutual agreement wou'd probably have been easily and quickly reached. Among some of the items to be taken up by the chamber of com- meace in the near future will be, the bettering of the Telephone ser vice, in view of the noise caused by the new power plant, reestab lishment of daily wireless press ser vice, the furthering of harbor dim" wharf matters not to mention the results which must follow insistent promotion work. "Watch Kauai Sprout." SOCIALISTIC TEACHINGS AND CRIME It is by a strange coincidence that the Lihue butcher shop cash register should be stolen and brok en up, at the very time our friend of the I. W. W. teachings is so busy preaching t o and inciting Filipinos laborers to riot, and dis order. Such an act as was perpetiated at the butcher shop last Thursday is practically an unheard of thing on Kauai, and it is not stretching the iniaginatiin very far to assume it was as a direct result of uncon stitutional speeches made recently in Lihue, by A. V. Roe. He is quoted at one meeting as having told the laborers "That they should not work more than four hours per diem and should not be made to rise before eight or nine o'clock. Their v ives should wear silks and satins all same Boss's wife. If one man is sent to jail why; all go along with him. The county cannot feed four or five thousand people. If you have nothing to eat, go and steal; I would do the same myself." If this sort of thing goes on we shall find more cash registers brok en open. Anyhow we have three months to think the matter over. HONOLULU AD CLUB MAY COME News comes from Honolulu to the effect that the Honolulu Ad Club is anxious to make Kauai the objective point for their next inter-island excursion. "Booster" Giles the live wire of the Promo tion Bureau of Honolulu is said to be already planning the invasion. The members of the Ad Club are individually and collectively, nat ural born boosters, and Kauai has a reputation for hospitality which remains unexcelled, and that the Ad Club or any other club, will be given a royal reception by our hos pitable people, goes without say ing., "Watch the Garden Island Blossom!"
