Both 'sides plaved bad at times, and made costly errors. Toward the end of the name some of the Makawelis seemed to lo.e their heads, with most disastrous results. At the end of the first half of the sixth innings the Makawelis had six runs to one for their oppoueu's but in the remaining three innings the score had been so shifted around that it stood 12 to 7 in favor of the Mc Brydes. Makawelis were first to bat and A. Fernandez, who hit safe, suc ceeded in making the circuit be fore his side was retired. The Mc Brydes failed to score, In the sec ond in.iings; with bases full. Joe Fassoth hit safe and scored J. Cos ta, gi.i ig hi Mikawelis one run in that frame, For the McBrydes, "JSa'oriel, first m a n up, worked around to third and on a passed ball tole the plate. In the third Akina, of the Makawelis, hit safe, was advanced by others and scored on a"mi.-c-up at the home plate. The McBrydes failed to score, John Costa making a fine one-hand catch at the close of the inning Akana had oitched lip to i "this time for the McBrydesj but at t -the beginning of the tourtn' joe . Aka took the box. No run for the Makawelis. The McBrydes did not get a man beyond first base. In the fifth Hans Fassoth landed a two baTger, and, with the usual as sists, reached home. The McBrydes failed again to tally. Tn the sixth innings, with two men on bases, Joe Fassoth struck for three bags, scoring bath men ahead of him, but was thrown out ' himself at the plate on a close de cision. The score was then 6 to 1 in favor of the Makawelis as above stated. v The McBrydes then tightened up ' .1 for a terrific onslaught, and the Makawelis seem to go off their feet. -The game fairly bristled with er- "S'rors. aml tllev were liarcl t0 account ' for, too, for every man played the game for all it was worth.

In event ofthe McBrydes again winning, the season will end then and there. But if the Maka welis win, a third game will be played in Lihue the succeeding Sunday to settle the tie. NEW BUNGALOWS TODAY S ID LATEST sugar hi FOR THE SCHOOLS ii nun nu unnn rnn gulu vtm niun The trouble about the site for the proposed new school for the Waipouli homesteads has been got ten out of the way, and at the end of last week Mr. Moragne began the work of putting up the build ing there, on Lot 88. There was at first some question about the title to a lot on this property, but the land department at Honolulu made such arrangement as to justi fy the authorization t the Kauai Board of Supervisors to go ahead with the building. The school house at that place will be of the bungalow type, 24 by 27 feet. Two new buildings have been added to the Koloa school and will be ready for service at the opening of the term in September. They are both bungalows, of the regulation size and design; and stand to the right of the front entrance. Another bungalow, 24 by 27, lias been erected near the road on the premises of the Lihue school to be used for the purposes of manual training; and another of identical design and size has been built at the Eleele school for the same pur pose. Improvements have been "com pleted at several other schools, so that at the opening in September all will be found in excellent shape for the year's work. Germans ofthe Hawaiian Islands are raising a fund for the assistance .of the Gernmn wing" of the Red Cross in Europe, and the total, it is said, will run into very big money. When all is collected it will be forwarded to tlr Old Coun ty through Messrs. Hackfeld & Companv, Honolulu. In conjunction with the general campaign for funds, a list was started on Kauai about ten days ago. In Lihue nearly $1,900.00 was raised, and more than $500 has been added at Koloa, while between that town and Kekaha about $500 additional has come in. The grand total for the island of Kauai will probably reach $5,000.00. It is understood that Germans all over the United States are rais ing money for the same purpose, so that the receipts from American sources will likely be enormous. The supposition locally is that the.jnoney will go to the headquar ters of the Red Cross in Switzer land, to be distributed from there through the proper channels. Employees Have Outing Eighteen employees of the Lihue and Hanamaulu stores motored over to the Barking Sands on the Lihue Store truck last Sunday, having an all around "good time".

Palmer Woods Coming Palmer Woods, of Hawaii, who is a candidate for nomination on the Democratic t'eket for delegate in Congress, will arrive on Kauai in the Kinau tomorrow and will vie with the Juvanile Bostonians in holding public attention for a few days. It is assumed that he will make a hurried tour of the island, speaking at various places and re turning to town Saturday night.

Continued on page 5, BOSTONIANS 10 STAGE BEST PLAYS The Juvenile. Bostonians will ar rive at Waimea by the Kinau to morrow, will be met by members of ths Waimea committee and taken to the Bay view Hotel. Two entertainments will be given there, in the social hall, the first on Wednesday evening, the play be ing "The Isle of Spice"; and the second Thursday evening, the company then presenting "My Tango Maid". It is assumed that the troupe will remain in Waimea Wednes day, Thursday and Friday, and on Friday evening will present "The Dream Girl" to an audience at Koloa. The troupe will then proceed to Lihue where "The Golden Slip per" will be presented en Satur day evening, to be followed by "The Loves of Lenore" on Mon day evening. Reservations for each of the per formances have been quite heavy, so that crowded houses at each place is already assured. It is to be noticed that not a single program is to be repeated anywhere, in consequence of which it is presumed that at each place quite a few people will come from neighboring towns. Kinau Leaves Friday The Kinau this week will leave Nawiliwili Friday afternoon, September 4, in place of Saturday, September 5. Misses Wilson (two sisters), re cent airivals from Canada, have been added to the teaching staff of Koloa school. They will likely ar rive on Kauai next week.

It is just possible that some otner ouus ana ends were picked up but if so they have not been definitely missed. The thief got into the store through one ol the side windows The method of getting in and character of merchandise taken has caused the authorities to suspect Fihpinoes. A strange thing about the bur glary is that no attempt was made to take anything of very large value or any large amount of any thing. The thief was evidently satisfied with a small haul for his trouble. Two Cars Collide At the head of the lane leading to Makaweli mill, the car of H. S. Padgett, of Makaweli, collided with a car driven by one Makishi ma Sunday afternoon, the wheels of the former being broken and both cars being otherwise slightly injured. The police allege that Padgett was on the wrong side of the road when the accident happened, and have issued a penal summons for him to appear in court and answer to the charge Picnic At Lawai Mrs. B. D. Baldwin, of Maka well, is giving a picnic at Mc Brvde's beach house todav to mem bets of her family and a few friends. HANAMAULU HS BURGLARY GAS Hawaiian Sugar (Makaweli) got a b;g lot of sugar into New York at figures above 6 cents, re turns concerning which have be gun to arrive. In the first lot then were 537 tons, which brought tVe very high figure of 6 52 This was followed a few days later bv a verv large shipment of Makaweli sugar, which arrived at Delewarc Breakwater at (..01. Tllere were 2,579 tons in the latter shipment, the total value of which ran into big money, McBrvde plantation is known to have been about equally fortunate, in proportion, ot course, to output; although the exact figures have not vet been received bv Mr. Alex ander. In the shipment for which Makaweli received 6.52, McBryde also had something like 600 tons, and in addition had considerable n tle shipment which brought 01, but the exact number of tons not yet known. Sugar was 3.29 at the time the present boom started some weeks ago. Taking thoe figures as a base.

Koloa is also in fine position for some high prices. That plantation has 1886 tons afloat or, at anv rate, away from here. It i3 believed that considerable of it reached the market in time to catch a price a bove 6 cents, but particulars have not yet been received.

The unshipped as well as the un- ground sugar stand a good chance of high prices also; so that Koloa will come out fine on a verv large per. cent, of the year's outputr The Advertiser of last Wednes day contained the following on this general subject: The American-Hawaiian Coin pany s steameis I'eiinsylvaiuan and Georgian arrived at New York hist Monday, according to advices re ccived in Honolulu. Both ve.vsels carried a total cargo of fifteen thousand tons of sugar from these Islands, the price of which increas ed to the amount of $816,600 dur ing voyage from this port to the point of destination. When the sugar was started from here the price quoted was 3.29 or S65.80 per ton. When the sugar arrived in New York Mon day the price for which it sold was 6.01, or S120.20 per ton. Both cargoes had a value of $987.00(1 when thev were placed aboard the ships in Honolulu and other Is land ports. Tins had jumped to $1,803,000 when the sugar reached destination. Probably never before in the his tory ofthe sugar industry iu these Islands has there been such a tremendous advance in such a shart time in the price of its priucl pal product. MEANS A HIGH A VliKAGK It is the belief of A. M. Nowell. secretary and manager ot thebugar Factors Company, that the rapid rise in the price of sugar in the past few weeks will result in bring- ng the average prtco for tne entire crop of 510,000 tons up to $3.80 per hundred, or $76 per ton. Last year the price averaged $3 50 per hundred or $70 per ton. About at an average price of 3.20. The price of sugar yesterday was quoted at 5.77, while refined sugar was quoted at 7.25. This differe-icc of nearly $1.50 per hundred in the price of raw and refined sugar it taken here to indicate that there is still a strong demand for sugar and that the price will not go much lower. The rule heretofore has been to make the differential be tween raw and refined sugar about eight-five cents per hundred. It is now nearly double this amount. MILLIONS FOR HAWAII It is now figured that the last of 148,000 tons remained unsold up to July 31. at which time aboul 320.000 tans had been disposed o the present crop of sugar will havi b !tsno'el of by Oc'o'i.r IB. MDLESS COMPLETES TOUR L. L. McCandlehS, aspirant for the nomination of the Democratic ticket for delegate to Congress, completed a tour ot Kauai at the week-end and returned to Honolu lu Saturday night. He was well received everywhere and, as a rule, very fair audiences turned out to hear him spiel A great deal of his wcrk was done along the roads and in the camps. Upon lauding in Lihue, Mr. Mc- Candlcss made a shoot for Hanalei and held meetings at Waiutha, Haualci, Kilauea a n d Kapaa, jumping over from thereto Kekaha and Waimea. His Waimea meet ing, as well as the one in Kapaa, was quite well attended. From Waimea, the candidate worked back to Makaweli, Hana pope, Eleele, Homestead and Ko loa, meetiiK'S being held all along. In general, McCandless paid his respects to all of the candidates, including Palmer Woods. In re gaid to his own policies, he dilat ed quite a great deal on the sub jects of improvements to the hoine- stcdiing laws and also on the mat er of leases. He accused George Carter, then Governor, of giving ;uvav the island of Lanai. On the sugar question, he at tempted a defense of the Democrat ic national policy oflow duty, and i . r f I ... . . proposed a sort oi eiasuc uiwy ar rangement, under which th duty would rise and lull, like the mer cury in the tube, according to the price of sugar. Mr. McCandless delivered one of his principal addresses atrthc-whar-f in Nuwuiwih Saturday attvrnoon, where quite a large number of peo ple had gathered to witness the sailing of the Kinau. There the Democratic leader, standing in trout ot Spitz' lemonade emporium , poured hot shot into the crowd. He appeared tc be just a little sev ere on George R. Carter and. to some extent, Palmer Woods; but had little tD say of ithcr Kuhio or Rice, except along party lines. The speaker touched upon the sugar situation, but found other reasons than the new tariff scheme for hard-times talk. Low duty was not the worst thing in the world, to his mind; and he then dilated upon his plan of an auto matic duty, which wouUl rise and fall according to the price of sugar on tha New York market. lie sailed into Conkling, the late Ter ritorial treasurer, and the tax as sessors of the islands for rcduc ng assessments on the sugar planta tions, a move which he regarded as premature and not justified. Just before leaving, McCandUss expressed himself as much pleased with his reception everywhere on Kauai, and remarked that he would "be back aeain" after the primary election, indicating that lie has strong hopes of running a head of Palmer Woods on Septem ber 12. Dakotan Arrives The big freighter Dakotan ar rived at Port Allen Saturday morn ing, bringing 23 tons of freight and one day's accumulation of mail. She will sail this afternoon for Hilo. taking 5,000 bags of su gar and 3.UUU cases ot pineapples. next. The first of the 1915 crop it is figured will begin to move a bout the last of November. "Unforseen circumstances have worked a wonderful transformation in the sugar situation, "said a brok er yesterday. At the beginning of the year our industry was threaten ed with ruin. The pric of sugar was away down and threatened to o lower. In face of this we look ed forward to one of the worst years in our history. Here we are now wiiunng up with the price a ,vay up and promising to go fur ther. We will get an average of six dollars per ton more for our sugar this year than we did in 1913, a grand total of $3,060,000 that has literally poured into the alps of the people of thin Territory."
