Kauai for a week or more, has call
ed a meeting for Thursday even
ing at Hotel Lihue for the purpose
o f organizing a local insurance

proposition, reading as follows:

tion of the Home Insurance Com
pany of Hawaii, Limited, a local
company has recently been organ
ized to operate at Hilo on the is
land of Hawaii.
There is a splendid opportunity
for a number of local companies
say one on each island to in a
measure affiliate for an exchange
of business. Kauai offers a very
splendid field considering t h e.
wealth of the Island and the very
large insurance values. A local
company can be organized comply

the law by a subscribed capital of
$100,000, $50,000 of which must
be paid in.

A Juvenile Offender
Antonio Yambot, a Filipino lad
not over eighteen years of age,
wis convicted in the Circuit Court
yesterday of a statutory crime and
sentenced to the Reformatory
School. The case proved an un
' usual one. The girl (Hawaiian)
is only 13. Having some trouble
at home near Lihue, she met her
Filipino boy lover by appointment
at the half-way bridge. They went
to Koloa and tried to get a mar
riage license, but it was refused on
account of both being below age.
Boy and girl, greatly disappointed,
left Koloa together. The next af
ternoon they were found bv the
police at the former's house in
Lawai, the boy being at that tune

The Governor will have the duty
of signing the death warrants and

At the time of the verdict, coun

to appeal. Appeal has not been
perf"cted, however, and probably
will never be for the reason that
the case against the men was over

sentence in the Kauai courts in a
very long time, but the three at a
clip probably makes up for lost

the Makaweli grounds Sunday af
ternoon, when the home team
whitewashed the J. A. C.'s.
The little, brown fellows failed
to get a single hit off of Pitcher
