As was to have been expected,
immense crowd, for Kauai,
witnessed the first game in the
championship baseball series a t
Eleele Sunday afternoon, where,
amid all manner of "rooting" and
the sounding of auto horns, the
fortunes of fhe day swayed from
side to side ana finally settled up
on the banner of the McBrydes.
. d After all is said, the game was a
.tfuzzle from start to finish. 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

get a man beyond first base. In the
fifth Hans Fassoth landed a two

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

grounds. In event ofthe McBrydes
again winning, the season will end
then and there. But if the Maka

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".
After a dip in the ocuan, a picnic
was enjoyed under the keawe trees.
On their way home the baseball
game at Eleele was taken in The
party consisted of: John Ra;oso,
N, Napoleon, Y. Yoshiinoto, Te

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.

Reservations for each of the per

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

from neighboring towns.

The Advertiser of last Wednes

general subject:
The American-Hawaiian Coin
pany s steameis I'eiinsylvaiuan and

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

ships in Honolulu and other Is

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.
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.
It is now figured that the last of
148,000 tons remained unsold up

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."
