avail themselves of the benefits of
the Club at a rate of $2.50 per an

or rejecting the new county build
ing as it stands. Thomas ,D. Skin
ner, cashier for Lord-Young Engi
neering Co., the contractors, and
Louis E. Davis, of Ripley & Da
vis, architects, were present. Ob
jection was raised to certain minor
details of the work on the build
ing, having mostly to do with
plastering and painting -in certain
spots. The contractors readily con
sented to go over this work, where
upon the Supervisors voted to is
sue a warrant for the cost of the
building, less $1,000, to beheld
back until the small work indica
ted has been finished, This seemed
to be satisfactory all around,

ing into the new building right

will be installed next week. A
part of the permament furniture
will arrive in above three weeks,
and the balance shortly thereafter.

Hitchcock sailed from Nawiliwili
in the W. G. Hall last Tuesday
evening for Honolulu, having
landed at Waimea from the little
schooner Luka, which had put in
there on her return trip from Pal

take the steamer here, leaving the
schooner in charge of Captain E.

The excursionists had been away 1
from Honolulu about five weeks,
and had good weather all the time,
except that they were becalmed
when beating ofT near Kauai and
decided to land. The Palmyra
group of islands is 995 southwest
ward of Honolulu. Of the trip
Mr. Cooper said:
"The islands seem more beauti
ful a n d interesting than ever
andth is time we had more oppor
tunity to make a better survey and
inventory of the resources than be

lands, and we Ijrought back with

cargo of cocoanuts, many of which

At Hale Hooni
The picture show program in
Hale Hooni drew a fair sized audi
ence Saturday evening, although
the program was hardly up to the
excellent standard established by
Mr. Fernandez in former enter
tainments. The show man seems to
have been striking hard luck in
the matter of character of pictures
of late.
The barkentine S. G Wilder,
well known in the Islands (this
being her home country) has been
sold to parties in Peru and will
henceforward fly the Peruvian flog.
The war news of a few days ago
caused quite a little flurry i n
sugar stocks at Honolulu It was
figured over there that war would
mean a necessity for increasing
government revenues a n d that
would render free sugar nn impos
sibilv. Of the matter one of the Ho
nolulu papers had the following to
say, while most stocks showed
strength on 'Change:
Heavy buying of sugar stocks on
the local exchange yesterday was
due to the persistent belief that
war with Mexico would call for in
creased revenues. There are many
who think that the administration
will seize this opportunity to recti
fy the political error made when
sugar was placed on the free" list.
These hope that congress will in
definitely defer the free sugar per
iod which under existing law will
become operative from May 1, 1916.
Purchases were mainly of two
classes of stocks, those of planta
tions now on a dividend paying
basis which will continue to return
at least banking interest whether
the expectations of the purchasers
are fulfilled or not. and shares in
plantations at the bottom of the
list where the gambling feature
more clearly enters in.
There are others who depend
more on the signs of general re
turning prosperity in the United
States and abroad, who say that
now is the time for a resumption
in trading and that irrespective of
the war situation all business is
bound to improve.
The Mailes Dance
The "Maile Club", the new so
cial orgsnization at Eleele, gave
a dance in Eleele hall Saturday
evening, which was largely attend
ed and very much enjoyed by all
those participating.
The Mailes are now working on
plans for a masquerade ball, to be
given sometime next month.
Miss de Lackner, of the Eleele
hosj.ital, returned from Honolulu
in the W. G. Hall Friday morning.
The Nawiliwili harbor resolu
tions recently passed by the Kauai
Chamber of Commerce are being
heard from by almost every steam
er. On April 9 the Maui Chamber
of Commerce passed the resolu
tions, as indicated bv the follow
ing from Secretary D. H. Case, of
Waihiku;."I have to advise you
that favorable action was taken
thereon and certified copy of our
action in the premises, over the
signatures of the President and the
Secretary of the Maui Chamber of
Commerce, forwarded to our dele
gate in Congress."
On Aprit 17 the Hilo Board of
Piadealso adopted the resolutions,
endorsing the Nawiliwili project,
the papers of that town stating
that the motion to approve passed
by unanimous vote.
The resolutions, which were for
warded to Washington, have been
introduced i n the United States
Senate, as indicated bv the follow
ing clipping from the Congres
sional Record, received in the mail
last Wednesday:
RIALS" "The Vice-President presented
a petition of the Kauai Chamber
of Commerce, Lihue, Kauai,, Ha
waii, praying that an appropria
tion '.be made for 'tlfe'coustruct'ion
of a breakwatei at Nawiliwili Har
bor, island of Kauai, Hawaii,
which was referred to the Com
mittee on Territories."
Having been taken up in this
way makes it quite possible for the
reinstatement of the item at this
session of Congress (although such
is hardly likely,) Should the Sen
ate committee decide to put the
item back i n the bill, it seems
improbable that the House would
over quibble it.
A Dinner-Session
It has practically been decided
that the June meeting of the Cham
ber of Commerce will be a combin
ed dinner and business session, at
the Hotel Fairview, Lihue, follow
ing the lines of the Ad Club's func

ing the fact will be sent out in due

Sunday's game of baseball was
the best played so far this season
by the Lihue team. There -were
fewer errors and more fast playing
than at any of the previous games.
Afong did some splendid work in
lie box and the team as a whole
gave him good support. The line
up of the regular team consisted of
those of the "regulars" who were
on hand when the game was called.
The "regulars" who showed up
late were put on the opposing
team. This is the policy that will
be followed throughout the re
mainder of the season in order to
induce the men to be on time.
