Experience Rough Voyage But
Enjoy Their Stay On
The Trail And Mountain Club's
excursionists sailed from 'Koloa
at about S o'clock Sunday night
for Honolulu all tired, but a
large majority, at least, express
ing themselves as having had a
very satisfactory outing.
There seemed to be five sections,
or elements, in this very inter
esting party, i.e.: The Trail And
Mountain Club's mountain climb
ers, tourists from abroad, persons
interested only in plantation sights
and the pleasures of the towns,
persons who came to visit relations
or friends and what may be term
ed ''freelances." These elements
chose their several ways (as had
been announced in advance that
they would do) and from all ac
counts had a good time.
On account o f the roug h
voyage from Honolulu, none chose
to go on by sea to Hanalei, but
took the overland roule to Wai
mea, ample auto accommodations,
with careful drivers, being provid
ed for that purpose. At Wni-
uiuii a ui 1111. tAtiniun
cided to see the famous Napali
cliffs, and set out in the steamer
for that purpose. The sea proved
so rough, however, that they were
quite willing to turn back before

The mountain parties were di
vided, many going up Olokele and
others to Knudscn's, the Barking
Sands and various other points of
interest. All of the people of the
neighborhood threw their homes
open to such of the travellers as
they knew, the rest being com
fortably accommodated at Hotel
Sunday was given over to nu
merous excursions, each party
having its own experience.
During the stay of the excur
sionists on the island, the nights
were quite cold, but climatical
conditions at the Waimea end were
excellent otherwise. There were
no accidents and no other un
The excursion left Honolulu on
time Friday night, a stiff wind be
ing on at the time. As soon as
the Kinau passed from the protec
tion of Oahu, into the open sea,
wind and waves took her side-wise
and it became rough. Many of
the passengers felt the usual dis
tress arising ("arisi.ig" is, per
haps, the correct word) from such
condition?; but enough jollity sur
vived to last to the journey's end
at Nawiliwili. '
During the night the wind had
shifted to the north, and in the
early morning hours it was quite
cold. The Kinau, quite thought
fully, brought along a steam
launch with which the passengers
were hustled ashore with unusual
At the landing the visiters were
greeted with the rattle of fire
crackers, provided and set off by
Hon. J. H. Coney. Following
that innovation a stringed orches
tra began to play and sing, bring
ing the weary travellers more fully
to a realization that they were on
terra firma again.
Quite a delegation of members
of the Kauai Chamber of Com
merce and others were ut the!
wharf to meet the visitors, while
still others waited at the Hotel'
Lihue to greet them. Autos and
auto trucks wete on hand to move(

HAS LEG BROKEN
While attempting to board a car
for the fields at 5 o'clock last
Thursday morning, Judge Wm.
Schinimelfenig, who is a luna on
Koloa plantation, accidentally
slipped and sustained a broken leg.
The train was leaving from a
point near the plantation office. It
is stated that a rain coat worn bv
the Judge caught on something
and caused him to lose his foot
hold. The leg is broken above the
ankle. Judge Schinimelfenig was
removed at once to the hospital
where he is getting along as nicely
as could be expected
The anonymous letter writer is
again abroad on Kauai, and more
unsigned missives are reaching the
Governor. The last time, a mild
sensation was caused by an anony
mous letter to the Governor in re
gard to dentists.
Now, someone else has begun
writing letters. In regard to the
matter, Governor Pinkham, under
date of February 13, writes to the
editor of Titii Gahdkn Island as
"Will you kindly state in your
paper that while the Governor is
interested in the welfare of each
and every dweller on Kauai, he
cannot consider anonymous com
munications, hence the only way
to secure his attention is by plain
signatures to letters.
"L. E. Pink ham
"Governor of Hawaii."
Would Star! Militia
Lawrence W. Rediugton, sport
ing writer of the Star-Bulletin,
who was over here with the excur
sionists in the interest of his paper,
also made inquiries in regard to
possibilities of organizing a batta
lion of the National Guard on
Kauai. Rediugton is a captain in
the N. G. H., and was asked by
Colonel Jones to look into the
situation. The idea seems to pre
vail that companies for local duty
only might easily be organized-one
at Wainiea-Makaweli, one at Hie-ele-McBryde,
one at Lihue and one
at Kealia-Kapaa, completing a bat
talion. Captain Rediugton will
report his conclusions to Colonel
anived at the hotel for breakfast.
At about 8:30 all were aboard the
conveyances again for Waimea.
Upon returning to Honolulu,
Mr. A. P. Taylor, of the Hawaii
Promotion Committee, had the fol
lowing to say to the Star-Bulletin:
"The general comment seems to
be favorable, said Mr. Taylor
this morning, "and I honestly be
lieve that everyone had a Rood
time. These excursion trips close
to home are proving very popular,
and already there are many in
quiries regarding the next one, to
Hualalai, and the Kona district of
Hawaii. It may be of interest to
some of the Kauai hikers to know
that the party which took in the
canyon trip was the largest to
make that journey since Queen
Hninia and a party of distinguish
ed Hawaiians made it many years

of railway were washed awav, The
storm was also severe at Kukui-'

W. C. Parke, secretary of the
Lihue Plantation Company, re-!
turned to Honolulu Saturday night
after a week's business visit here.
One of the items likelv tn go in
the appropriation bill nt the com
ing session of the Legislature will
call for an appropriation lor a new
public school building for Lihue,
to be erected on the pref-'cit school
premises near Lihue mill. The
style of building to be put up and
the cost of same are matters yet to
It mav not be piemature to say
that the Lihue public school prem
ises may be considerably larger
in the near future than they are at
present. Two deals to thi.i end are
pending, and will likely be brought
to a satisfactory consummation.
The first is a proposal to take over
the premises now 'occupied by trie
Japanese mission, the mission be
ing given a piece of laud in ex
change by Mr. George Wilcox,
who, .in turn, is to transfer the lot
to the ichool.
The second part of the proposal
comes from the Lihue Plantation
Company, and is to give to the
school the land nearer the mill
now occupied bv Mr. Grote.
This would increase the area of
the school premises about three
times over, and give it practically
all of the plateau along the road
upon which it is located. Ample
room would be afforded thereon
for playgrounds, etc., which are
fo much needed.
Then would come the new, large
building in place of the old struc
ture now being used for school
purposes. These improvements,
taken together, would place the
school in very excellent shape.
Augustine Doy, the principal in
the burglary of Sang Chung's store
at Koloa, was sentenced to one
year for stealing and committed to
the Circuit Court for trial on a
charge of burglary. One of the men
with him was given six months
and the other three months.
Augustine was the man who
actually entered the store, which
he did by cutting through the wire
netting in the butcher shop next
door. Through this hole he pass
ed out to his waiting companion
three shirts, three pair trousers,
two Panama hats and some other
Practically all of the goods were
recovered. One ot the men was
arrested at Lawai and another got
away as far as Makaweli, where, it
is claimed, he lived.
Kinau Leaves Friday
The Kinau, with excursionists
for the Carnival, will leave Kauai
ports Friday afternoon of this week
in place of Saturday.
The Homestead (Kalaheo) base
ball team is being rapidly gotten
into shape and will undoubtedly
enter the league for the coming
series. Dr. Glaisver has been
chosen manager of the team. The
team ha1- a good battery, and with
a little more practice will give the
best of them a run for the cham
pionship. Hon. J. II. Coney had Al. Castle
and a party of five other excur
sionists at breaklast Saturday.
Shipping Contracts Signed And
Surveys to Begin
W. C. Parke, secretary of Lihue
Plantation Company, accompanied
by the attorney of Messrs. Hack
feld it Company, returned to Ho
nolulu Saturday night after prac
tically completing the first section
of the work necessary for the es
tablishment of railway connection
between the Waipouli homesteads
region and the harbor at Ahukini.
This work consisted in the mak
ing of contracts with the home
steaders to use the road for ship
ping purposes, and also certain ar
rangements for milling such cane
as may be grown. Mr. Parke ntat
ed before leaving that enough
small farmers had come in on these
agreements to justify the company
in going ahead with the railroad,
and that there would be no un
necessary delay in making the start.
The only question left pending,
in so far as Lihue plantation is
concerned, is in regard to the route
of the road from its present ter
minus in upper Wailua, across and
down into the homestead tracts.
An upper route, which has been
considered, would be the cheaper,
but it would involve a longer haul
and certain minor disadvantages.
A turn-off at a point lower down
would call for ltss road building,
but necessitate the establishment '
of an expensive bridge across the
river. This phase of the problem
will receive first attention ut Ho
Surveys across government and
homesteaded lands will begin at
once. There is no longer any ques
tion about a satisfactory right of
way across the former, and inas
much as the homesteaders along
t h e route have signed shipping
contracts it is equally certain that
there will be no further hitches
The railroad to be built will be
between six and eight miles in
length and will involve an expen
diture of about a quarter million
dollars. Should the lower route
into Waipouli be decided upon,
and the bridge referred to above
be made necessary, the expense
would be further increased S60.000
The Lihue Plantation, in mak
ing the very large outlay, is taking
great chances of getting its money
back, relying for that upon the
building up of the country to be
affected by the railroad, and the
prosperity of the homesteaders.
It is, therefore, plainly and un
deniably, an answer in the affirm
ative oi one plantation at lca3t as
to whether it is in favor of home-
steading on Kauai.
The police have been having a
lively time with gamblers lately.
At Koloa sixteen, Japanese and
Filipinos, paid a total of S120 into
