Mr. Hrodie, chairiu m of the Membership Committee, asked for information as to the specific du ties of his committee, it appearing tend such a convention on Kauai,' to him to have. a double duty to and it seemed to be the general opinion that it would probably not run over 250. The delegates to the convention were cautioned to - get a line on tjiis particular for future reference. Kauai is assigned two, set speeches at the Maui convention, the one being on the subject of "Co-operation" and the other on "Kauai". Rev. I M. Lydgate was appointed to handle the form er and Senator E: A. K'.iudsen the latter. The Inter-Island S. N. Company has arranged to take the Kauai delegates to Honolulu on the steamer Likelike, leaving here on the afternoon of October 1, and arriving in Honolulu on the morn ing of October 2. In the city, the . Kauai delegates will join the dele igations from the commercial organizations there and proceed, the same afternoon, in the Mauna Loa, t6 Kahului.

The troupe will return to Honolulu by the steamer sailing this afternoon The Bostonians party is made ud of 21 ncrsons. been fixed at $18, which is regard- . . pression that the stages of Kauai ed as quite reasonable The opinion seems to be that (however desirable) ladies will be unable to find comfortable accom modations on the trip on account of the fact that Maui will be sev erely taxed to care foi the large number ot delegates which will at tend the convention. The new 1'iesident, Dr. F. L. Putman, was ill the chair for the first lime. Addressing the Cham ber, he urged the new committees to organize at once and get down to business. There was much to do, in his opinion, and it should be developed without delay, ' Mr. Broadbetit, the new chair-- were too small for full chorus work, five girls were left behind, only fifteen actresses appearing. Lauding at Waimea, the girls were put up at the Waimea hotel. There they had a jolly time out of practice and show hours, motoring around the country and swimming in the surf, which was o 1 a hundred yards away. The first performance wis put on Wednesday evening, and the house was packed. Theplayle was "The Isle of Spice," and every one enjoyed it immensely.
