The following letter has been
received from James L. McLean,
viT . president of the Inter Island
SteatnVNavigation Co., in reply to
n short editorial appearing in this
paper a few weeks ago:
Editor Gakdkn Island:
M attention has recently been
rSiy( to an editorial published in
votir issue of August 4 th. 1914,
lnflejt "As to Tuesday's steam
er, the last two paragraphs of
said article reading as follows:
"Uhueaud neighborhood want
a steamer regularly every Tuesday
morning and should have it.
"It has never been claimed that
there is not sufficient business for
it, so it seems to be a case of
'don't care' at the Honolulu
In replv to your comment on the
omission of our steamer "W. G.
Hall" to make the trip from Ka
. uai to Honolulu and return on the
occasion referred to, I respectfully
beg to say that the facts are these:
Under our mail contract we are
only flEgjuired to run our S. S."W.
G. HalV' to Lihue ports and re
turn once a week and the extra trip
each week that this steamer has
been making is simply to help out
in' the bringing of sugar to Hono
lulu, so in order to expedite the
work when the two trips are made, !
we grange to take the Ahukini
(freight by the steamer leaving Ho
?lulu on 'Mondays v .., .
Owing to the necessity of having
an extra day in which to clean
boiler, under date of July 16th,
we wrote our agent at Nawiliwili
to notify all peoole interested on
Kauai, that the "Hall" would
leave Honolulu one day late on
Friday, Tuly 24th instead of Thurs
day. This would cut out one day
of her working time on Kauai and
as the Agents ot the Plantation did
not require sugar on that partial
Jar trip, it was decided, to hays the
"Hall" rettirn from Kauai qu her
regular niail schedule leaving Na
wilkMH Tuesday afternoon. There

not seem to be justified.

Wm. C, Avery, principal of the
Kauai Grammar And Iltgh School,
which will open in a few wocks,
has written the following, for the
nformation of people of the island.
concerning the work it is purposed
to take up in the institution:
The Kauai Grammar And High
School offers advanced educational
opporl unities to the people of the
Garden Island, and plans to work
along two definite lines.
The first aim will be to develop
strong Grammar School depart
ment which will prepare students
to go on with hich school work.
Every effort will be made to keep
the pupils up to a hi h standard,
so that they may transfer to any
other school without loss of stand
ng, and may have the thorough
foundation needed for advanced
In order to accomplish this aim,
the instruction will be divided, as
ir ns possible, along department
al liness. English and Mathematics
will receive special emphasis.
The second aim will be to es
tablish a High School department
that will prepare its graduates for
any of the mainland Universities,
not onlv in the required courses of
study, but in oilier school activi
ties as well.
This year, three courses will be
offered: College Preparatory, Gen
eral and Business, dependent on
tlie'nuhiber of students wishing to
follow a specified course. The
courses will cover the first year
only, as the students eligible for
advanced standing are too few in
number to justify the organization
of the upper classes.
In school activities the members
of the faculty have had experience
in debating, dramatics and athle
tics, and will be glad to encourage
the students to take part in them,
by a hearty interest and helpful
Parents who wish their children
to board in Lihue during the school
year, should write at once to the
principal, who will try to find ac
commodations for them.
Govo Genko. driver of an auto
mobile, deliberately ran his ma-
cnine into the ditch opposite J. II.
Morauge's residence, Lihue, about
4 o' clock Saturday afternoon,
nauiy wre Ken tne car and came
near losing his own life, in order
to save a Japanese woman driving
a small cart along the road in front
of him.
Genko was proceeding along the
Grove Farm road to Nawiliwili.
wnen some distance irnm tne little
wagon (which was in the middle
of the road) he began sounding
his horn, expecting that the
woman would turn farther away
from his side of the road. In place
of that, however, she appeared to
be confused and turned directly in
front of the spefding machine.
In less time than it takes to tell
it, the chaffeur turned his machine
off into the ditch, where it landed
with a crush and stopped dead.
As a rather unusually fortunate
after-occurrence, (for Ihe chaffeur)
it is stated that the woman has
volunteeicd to pay for repairs to
the car, which will amount to con

one unplayed game - postponed at
the time the Japanese wrestlers
were using Lihue park.
The Koloas had an off-day at
Lihue park, the homers having the
best of the argument almost from
the start. A careless period of five
minutes on the part of the Lihue
pitcher, in theseventh inning, gave
the visitors the only two runs made.
Two home runs were recorded
by the Lihucs, one bv Fernmnkz
(this, however, being assisted by
an error of the right fielder); and
the other by John Malina, in the
sixth inning. With bases crowded

Exciting Runaway
A horse belonging to B. Bremer,
attached to a brake, tore loose
from his moorings in front of the
County building last Thursday
afternoon, made a circuit of the
building and scampered for safety,
no one being hurt. On the highway
the horse was confronted by an
unexpected peril in the shaue of
K. C. Akana, with a couple of
arms waving in the air like a can
didate making a political speech.
This was too much for the horse,
and he fell down on his knees and
