Rohrig to t'.ie Kauai Chamber of Commerce delivered on the occassion of the annual meeting and which was crowded out of last issue: Gentlemen of the Kauai Cham- bar of Commerce: The Kauai Chamber of Com merce was one year old yestefday, its first meeting bavins: been held at 10 a. m. .August 14 1913, in Li hue hall. There were present at that first meeting eighteen gentle men, and from the number a pres ident, vice president, secretary, treasurer and auditor were elected. A committee on Constitution And By Laws was appointed, and a sec ond committee was sent out to en roll new members. Adjournment was then taken until August 21, and at that meeting the new Con stitution was reported and adopt ed: the four additional directors therein provided for were elected and committees were appointed. The Chamber was then considered to be fully under way. The next meeting of the Cham ber was held October 16, at which the resignation of Secretary Behr was accepted with regrets and Mr. Philip L. Rice elected in his stead. At this meeting the President made a brief report of the inter-island convention of civic bodies which he had attended at Honolulu on the preceding September 17. There were 13 officers and members pre sent at this meeting. The fourth meeting, held Decem ber 18, was given over largely to discussion of plans for a float, etc., for the Carnival at Honolulu in February and the appointment of a committee on the snme. The fifth meeting was held Feb. ruary 14, of this year. At this mcc:ing the President reported the resignation of Mr. Philip L. Rice trom the office of secretary, and Mr. L. D. Timnions, our present secretary, was elected to fill the vacancy. Arrangements for the Kauai float in the Floral Parade, a pro posed tour of the island by Photo grapher Baker with his Kauai views, correspondence in regard to a proposed visit to Kauai by the Honolulu Ad. Club, the iite of the proposed new Kauai high school and several other matters engaged the attention of this meeting. Bishop & Co.

Next came a special meeting held in the court house at Wa'men, there being thirty members pre sent, nt which complete data con cerning the proposed visit of the Honolulu Ad. Club was presented, a tentative program mapped out, sub-committees appointed, etc. Numerous interesting matters came up at this meeting for discussion, and several important resolutions were adopted. Between that time and the com ing of the Honolulu Ad. CltHi in the last davs of Mrch, numerous meetings bv the committees were held. The tour of the Ad. Club as the guests of the Chamber of Com merce will be well remembered bv all of you and calls for no com ment from me. The sixth regular meeting was held April 16 and was given over largely to reports of the committees on Honolulu Carnival and on en tertainment of the Honolulu Ad. Club. The seventh regular meeting was held June 11 in the dining room of the Fairview Hotel, and was in the nature of a luncheon- sessior. There were 47 members present at this meeting, and 27 ap plications for membership in the Chamber were favorably acted up on. This meeting was voted a great success in every way. Thus you will note that the Chamber has been quite active in the first year of its infancy. In he meanwhile it Iiti grown in mem bership, and, we believe, in force and power and influence for the betterment of Kauai. From an original membership of 18 it has developed a membership of 94 in good standing at this date, and With every prospect of a consider able increase in the near hiture. Our relations with the Honolulu Chamber of Commerce and the other coinmerical and civic bodies of the Islands have become more cordial, and I feel that these friend ly relations will be of value to this Chamber in the future. We have had occasion during the year to tak; up important questions with the Territorial authorities and with the govern ment at Washington, invariably, we believe, with credit to our selves; and wh re we have not suc ceeded in carrying our points, the matters are still pending and are being followed up with due vigor. Continued on page 6 n ma in ihe Simri Oil for Moior Cars THE BEST MOTOR OIL the Standard Oil Company CAN MAKE IT KEEPS THE MOTOR COOL Some Estimates By A Man On The Inside Of Events The following is a part of a let ter received from a prominent worker for Charles A. Rice on Oahu, a man who is particularly well placed to get as accurate data as is obtainable on the situation: Our campaign is going along well. I just had a letter from Maui in which, a conservative esti mate of the Uice vote on that is- and was given at 1200. Kuhio be tween 700 and 800, and that the balance of the vote would be divid ed between the other candidates with Woods in the lead. Rice will surely carry the 4th. of the 4th. and issteadilygainingiu the 5th. of the 4th. Hawaiians from the latter district arc daily coming to headquarters and are telling us that many former Kuhio support ers in that district are dissatisfied with the "race issue campaign" carried on by the Kuhio support ers. Particularly do they object to methods used bv Desha and Wise. From Laie and Kahuku we have word that they wish us to have a meeting at Laie on the 29th. of this month and that if we will as sign them tins date tnat a tree train will be run froni Kahana on one side rfnd the Reform School on the other, to the meeting and that 90 ot the votes cast within these limits will be for Rice. Ewa, Oahu and Honolulu plantations have sent in word that if we will assign each place a night they will erect a speakers' platform and will supply light and seats and large sym pathizing audiences. Waimanalo is solid. Kailua and Kaneohe will give Rice about 50 of their vote. Coming nearer town in the 5th, it is estimated that Kuhio will poll two for every one polled for Rice, in those precincts where the Hawaiians predominate. Two weeks ago it was estimated that it was 5 for Kuhio to 1 for Rice. There are but few Hawaiians shouting for Kuhio now as com pared to the number shouting for him a couple of weeks ago. We feel we are gaining solid support there and that it will not again be deflected. There is much quiet house work being done in that district and it is surely breaking through the op position forces. On Hawaii the vote for Rice will be between 1000 and 1200, but on that island we think Kuhio will likely get a larger vote than Rice, but not as large as he would have gotten if Woods had not come out. We have word from Hawaii that Woods is actually running strong. He is getting much Hawaiian De mocratic support and many Ha waiians who did not t want to sup port McCandless and might have voted for Kuhio. We have been making estimates of the probable outcome at the pri maries and we believe that we will win over Kuhio by a majority of from 800 to 1200 votes. SENATOR MB 1 EUROPE Part IV. (Continued from last issue.) Waimea "Sojers" TOWN OF MUNICH I found that the town of Munich had changed a great deal. Many of the old, narrow streets had been exchanged for new, wide boule vards, built through the heart of the old town. The old Kings of Bavaria seem to have had a friend ly rivalry with the Kings of Sax ony, and haye collected as fine a lot of pictures as vou can find in any part of the world. A week there is well worth the time spent, and as we were there in one of their festival weeks, we saw the old dance established by the King at the time of the black plague vi sitation to distract the common people from their woes. INTO SWITZERLAND Leaving Munich on January 31, we passed into Switzerland and af ter spending the night at a little town called Cluir, we reached the famous Winter sport place of the world, St. Moritz, after passing throughand over a constant suc cession of tunnels and bridges. We spent the whole month of Feb ruary i,n St. Moritz, and greatlv enjoyed the cold, bracing weather. During the night the thermometer, would go as low as 5 degrees but during the day, as soon as the sun came up over the mountains, at about nine o'clock, the tempera ture would rise to 35 or 40 degrees and vou could go about in ordina ry golf suits and enjoy the skating or tobogganing to your hearts content. SPORT OF BOB-SLEIGHING The famous Cresta bob-sleigh run was onlv a short way from our hotel and it was great tun to see the big bobs come flying down making the turns at great speed and covering a distance of 5 kilo metres (about 2.7 miles) in one minute and 33 seconds. Sunny Corner was one of the most diffi cult to pass, and a grand-stand was built around the corner, which was banked up to a height of thirty feet-n perpendicular will of snow and ice-and a bob-sleigh coming fast would lly up around this cury ed wall as high as twenty feet. One day. as we were watching the races, a large bob came down at a great speed and as it approach ed the curve the steering wheel broke. The sled kept straight on up the wall and flew over the edk,e of the grand stand, turning the seats full of spectators over back wards a n d smashing them into kindling wood. The six members of the crew fell off two backwards down into the bob sleigh course and the other four on top of the jumbled u p mass of spectators, who were yelling and shrieking, and what with ladies fainting and going into hysterics and a dozen injured, some rather severely-the white snow being stained red in several places-we had quite an ex cit'ng day's sport. Strange to sav, the crew weren't injured a bit-and the bob was found sixty feet be yond, up side down. The driver, who would most likely have been ng of great help of course). To wards the end of February tbev had a great Ski jumping' day. All of the great men of the country came together and made some great umps the longest being 94 feet. I tried it once and it was a great sensation to feel my feet going ligher and higher and my head ower and lower Luckily snow is soft. Riding a bucking horse is easier. HORSE RACES ON LAKE Out on the lake they had horse races everv Sunday, and when the Skijoring Club joined the races it was a gay scene. The ladies, a mong whom were two Italian countesses and the Duchess of Westminister, also tock part, and when they came down the course at fullspeed the 50C0 spectators gave great applause. CZAR'S BROTHER THERE The brother of the Czar of Rus sia was a constant attendant at all the sports, and presided over the great ball given as a wind -up to the bob-sleigh Derby. The ball was held in the large dance hall of the Palace hotel, and though the tick ets were 20 francs apiece, still the h'll was packed, and we were- enabled to see all the sports of Russia, France, England, Ger many and America-not to mention Kauai-dressed in splendid style, which I will not attempt to des cribe, but thev certainly looked chic-and enjoying the one-step as though their lives depended up on it. Among the dancers were the men who had competed down the first course. EVENING IN DOORS As soon as the sun went down behind the mountains to the west, everybody quit the fields and rinks and went indoors and had tea and cakes, while fi n e string bands played the latest music of the day. One old bandmaster was so par ticular that h e wouldn't begin a piece until everybody in the large room had quit talking and abso lute silence prevailed. One after noon while we were sipping our tea and he was in the midst of one of his touching pieces, a tall lankeg waiter boy who was leaning against a pillar suddeuly skidded out on the polished floor and fell with a crash. All who saw it tried to keep a straight face, but tke effort to suppress a laugh was too great and the poor bandmaster was almost routed by a joyous shout of laugh ter. SNOW STORM IN FEBRUARY Towards the end of February we had a grand snow storm. It lasted two nights and a dav, and when it was over snow lay pileu up all ov er the country to a depth of three feet. We all went out and romped in the soft snow and found it great sport. The hills, however, became very dangerous and avalanche no tices were posted in all of the ho tels, One man who posed as an expert, wrote an article warning tourists against the snow and tell ing them how to avoid danger, killed had the accident happened and thetl wcnt out with a party Waimea is about to have a mili tary coinpany-a full-fledged branch of the National Guard of Hawaii, to be organized 60 strong. James A. Crawford, the new acting man ager of the Lihue Ice & Electric Power Co., at Waimea, has taken the matter up with Colonel Jones, at Honolulu, a n d the National Guardheadshave expressed approv al of the plan. George A. Bert ram, also of Waimea, a former Ger man soldier, is also prominently identified with the work of organ izing. Hilonian Calls on the next curve, stood looking at his demolished car in a dazed sort of way, mutterd a few quiet words and promptly went into the big derby the next week and won the cup-his sled selling for over a thousand dollars in the pool, the highest paid of any of the compe titors. SKI RUNNING POPULAR Ski running was very popular, and lost his life, buried under a mass of the very snow that he had warned others against-showing how very treacherous the snow is after the Spring begins to come on. The first day of Spring was ush ered in by all the small boys of the town arming themselves with bells and going around from house to house, ringing in the news and holding them all up to a treat of ami we triea aim enjoyen n very cakes and other dainties, much (our Norwegian ancestry be-I (To be continued.) ; T.
