QUOTATIONS CHRISTMAS TREAT FOR THE CHILDREN Closing day, Friday last, was a "red letter day" at the Lihuc pub lic school. About one o'clock, the children, to the number of some 550, were marshalled on the school grounds about a beautifully decorated Christ mas tree, and there they executed an interesting program of Christ mas carols and appropriao recita tions and drills. Following this program the small er children, to the number of 345, were admitted to the inner sanctum of Santa Claus, where, besides a miniature Christmas tree, beauti fully lighted, Santa himself, in a long, snow white beard, and appio priate costume, stood to receive them, and deliver to them, one by one, a package of Christmas good things. Meanwhile, the older ones, join ed by their comrades of the High School, had marched away to the Hp lop, where they were treated to a capital moving picturu show, with which they were delighted be yond measure. The whole affair was due to the initiative of Mr. and Mrs. Lydgate, who wore assisted financially by the men of the community. nawTlTwili BILL J. F. C. Hagen, vice president of Hackfeld and Co., yesterday receiv ed a cable from Delegate Kuhio in which ho stated that on December 11 he introduced in Congress a bill providing for the construction of a breakwater and lmrlmr facilities at Nawiliwili. The bill carries an ini tial appropriation of 200,000, the total expenditure to bo Sl.OKO.OOO. The Delegate added that a lu-itrinir would be had on tlio bill imme diately after the holidays. WASHED STORE AND OWNER OUT TO SEA The store of Sui Vick. near the bridge in Wainiha, was washed out to sea last night. Tt is believed that the Chinaman was in the building and liiis boon ilrmi-npd. Pnrf pnlnis are meager as the telephone line to the locality was also put out of com mission by the storm. Sui Yick had a small, general store at Wiiinihn. vn. spun rat ed from his wife, so the assumption is that no one else was in the house when the flood came rushing down from the mountains. The rain of yosterdav. was heavy all over the island, but Ilanalei and Wainiha seem to have, experienced the worst of it. DINNER SESSION OF The Kauai Chamber of Commerce had an overflow dinner-session at the Fairview Hotel in Lihue Friday evening. Right at t li e start-off every seat in the dining hall was taken and late arrivals were served at tables in the parlor. i One of the principal items 6f business was the report of the com mission appointed t o investigate the proposition of a summer camp ing site in Waimea canyon. Messrs. B. G-. Rivenburgh, G. K. Larrison, Chas. S. Judd and J. II. Moragne, of tho commission, who had iul returned from a two-days hike in the valley, made verbal reports. All were agreed on one thing that the cam) site proposition was ex cellent; but the .desired possibility eemed to be hedged about with questions of a road to the Kokee ite and lease rights to other sec tions of the property. Mr. Riven burgh said that there was nothing in tho way of acquiring camp sites on property around Kokee when it reverted to the government, and that no legislative action was iipcos- sary. Mr. Moragne, the county road engineer. stated that a serviecabl ii , road to uiu proposed camp sues could be constructed for $500 oi SG00, and Mr. Hans Isenberg moved that, it that could be done, the county supervisors bo renuested to ook into the matter. Senator Rice thought that the Legislature should i i....i i , uu ut-KL-u io appropriate lor a per manent road there as it was a Ter ritorial proposition Mr. Isenbcrg't motion carried, as to the temporary road, and Senator's suggestion is to a permanent road.
