A suggestion has been made that
an inter-island series of baseball be
played off in Honolulu in place of
the Coast-Honolulu series. Kauai
stands ready and most willing to
kokua in such a series, but would
have it known to begin with, that
the Territorial championship
trophy will bear the Kauai design.
This island can furnish the best
aggregation of ball players in the
Territory and no place 'would
afford the Garden Islanders more
pleasure than a n opportunity t o
make .good this statement.
Will Not Give Stamps
Depriving the principals of our
public schools of official stamps,
by the department of education,
establishes a new method of busi
ness proceedure, unheard of In
any well regulated business firm.
The principals are indignant, and
with just cause, since all the cor
respondence to and concerning
the departmental affairs must, un
der the new ruling, be borne by
the school marm. This may be eco
nomy, but it is at the expense of a
class of workers who deserve better

Doubting Thomases
It is said that since the College
of Hawaii has gained such a
notoriety through its recent pub
licity campaign, there are those
who would have the college publish
its enrollment. By this method
the outsider could form a much
more conclusive idea of what the
collegel is accomplishing than all
any long-winded newspaperarticles
could convey in a century.
Gibson, a Financier
Considerable comment has been
occasioned by the receipt of in
structions from Superintendent
Gibson notifying the teachers of
the public schools, that stamped
envelopes is no longer to be furnish
ed for official correspondence. It
is claimed that the new superinten
dent is attempting to do "peanut"
polities in so much as he is en
deavoring to curtail expenses.

Hardy, a poet
Mr. Hardy, the geodetic survey
superintendent, is about to publish
a volume of verses which he has
composed, the introductory o f
tyhijh will be a recent composition
on his trip up the mountain with
a party of Lihueites, the one con
cerning C. S. Dole, being especial
ly good.
O'u Picnic!
The O'u Club gave an enjoyable
picnic and swimming party on the
Niumalu beach last Saturday. The
whole flock of birds were there and
a more favorable evening for the
varied program could not have
been asked.
Program is Praised
Much f.ivorable comment is be
ing heard regarding the tourist
schedules which appeared in our
last issue, and many personal con
gratulations have been passed up
t o those responsible for the very
thorough manner in which it was
gotten up.
Increased Ice Output
Tue Waimea Ice Works, accord
ing t o late reports, has almost
doubled its output within the last
few months. Improved ouality in
the ice, and new customers
said to be
the cause of such re-
Messages have begun t o arrive
from the famine-stricken district
gf China, and arc meeting wit
promptrespon.se. If there are an
on this island who desire to assist
in this most worthy cause, they
should lose no time in getting into
communication with the pioper au
thorities in Honolulu. Old cloth
ing that is thought to be of no
longer use to you, would be wel
comed by suffering humanity in
the confines of our big sister- republic.
The Stock Law Again
A petition signed by nineteen
citizen? of the Waimea District,
and addressed to Sheriff Rice, .was
received at the Sheriff's office last
Saturday. The petition asks that
the police department take steps to
enforce the present stock law.
Sheriff Rice has asked the county
attorney lor a written opinion on
the case, after which he will take
whatever move in the matter that
lies within his power.
"No Sabe Lotten Fish"
A. story is going the rounds to
the effect that a certain crowd of
fishermen recently spent a day off
the shores of Nawiliwili, and that
some of them claimed to have snar
e d ten fish, 3 inches long, while
others of the party claim that there
were but 3 fish and they were ten
inches in length. The Japanese
fisherman from whom the fi s h
one dav long, and
that haole no
sabe lotteu fish.
Officials Back Halsey
Richard Halsey, inspector o f
immigration for the port of Hono
lulu, has received official sanction
from Washington in regard to his
recent crusade against the white
slave traffic in Honolulu. M r .
Halsey is responsible for the de
portation of scores of inhabitants
of the tenderloin district, back to
the country from whence they came.
This list is said tJ have been com
posed of Orientals and Europeans.
President Reflected
The Chinese election was held
last week, and with a majority of
one vote. Yuan Shih-Kai w a s
elected to succeed himself. It is
thought that as soon as the elec
tion is entirely settled, the powers
will recognize the republic. T h e
presidential term of office will pro
bably be for five years.
Inter-Island Bowling
The Lihue bowling club mem
bers are doing some practice work
in view of the Kauai-Maui bowl
ing contest. Some excellent scores
have been made, and the Valley
Islanders will probably meet with
a greater degree of opposition in
the coming contest than in any of
the past.

the main water source lb 'the Lihue
Hospital. When' completed, h e

means of getting water through the
buildings, will go on the shelf as an
Trouble Brewing
Bad blood is said to be brewing
between the Kapaa homesteaders
and cattle owners who are reported
to be purposely drivif.5 their stock
onto the premises of the home
steaders. - -
Good Road Work
Those responsible for the better
condition of the Hulaia road,
should have a medal, for the drive
over this strip of public highway,
is now a pleasure, whereas before
the same was decidedly precarious.
Sugar Crop Short
According to authentic reports,
the sugar output for the Territory
the past year was 55,000 tons short
owing, it is said, to the drought.

Naming Town-Silo
The nieinlK-rs of the ParmerV
Istitute at Kapaa Homestead) t
their meeting last week, decided
unanimously, on giving their new
homestead possessions, nn appro
priate name. Several familiar town
names, some of them ending in
"vills," etc., were considered hut
lightly .is the concensus of opinion
was to the effect that an: appro
priate Hawaiian name wuld be
more suitable. A committee will
be named at the next , meeting to
settle the question. This done, a
postofficc and school house will he
next in order. The Federal Hx
periniental Station a t Honolulu
will arrange a course of lecture for
the Institute during the coming
season, which is thought will be of
great benefit to the farmers.
Gun Drops Into Bay
Tom Gunn, the Chinese aviator
whose reputation for talking far
exceeds that for flying, and Mrs.
Newman, an apparent adventureist.
narrowly escaped drowning in the
shark infested waters of Pearl Har
bor last week when, for lack of
motor power, the machine dropped
into the bav. Their predicament
was observed by the spectators
who reached the scene as soon as
possible in a canoe. Mrs. Newman
is said to have escaped uninjured,
due it is thought to her having
thrown her battery overboard, thus
preventing her ship from sinking.
The appearance of the ship's Gun
in the water, perhaps prevented
the hungry sharks from making a
supper off the aviator who
floundered in the water until the
canoe reached thein. Mrs. New
man says she will do it again, but
ii might be easier said than done,
when one carries a gun that isn't
sure on trigger
Just a Few Good' Suggestions
Now that we have such a grand
store building, that unsightly row
of stables opposite the building,
and the dilapidated old bunch of
plantation shacks along the ap
proach from Kapaia, should be cli-
.minated and prettv parks be given
their places. Aside from the un
sightliness of this camp, it is a
source of danger to traffic, as there
is frequently a crowd of children
at plav in the road, necessitating
very careful manipulation to avoid
striking them at times. "A camp
should never be placed in such
close proximity to a public
way," remarked a business
in speaking of the present
to a reporter.

p. m. announced in brief detail,
the result of the last game between
the world's champions and the
Giants, played in New York Satur

The series was to be composed of
seven games. The Phillies have
won four out of these, and' have
