SEPTEMBER 10, 1918 SUBSCRIPTION RATES, $2.50 PER YEAR 5 CENTS PER COIY THE CHAMBER OF . COMMERCE MEETING A special mooting of tho Chnmbor ot Commerco was hold In Llhuo Saturday nftcrnoon to take action In regard to raising tho Kauai quota ot tho Fourth Liberty Loan and one or two other matters. The president reminded tho Cham ber that about a year ago a committee had been appointed to act in conjunct Ion with a similar committee ot tho Planters' Association in these matters. Mr. Wishard suggested that this com mittee bo reappointed to act In nil such matters of war activity during the present Chamber of Commerce year, with tho understanding that a now mcmbor bo appointed In place of Mr. W. D. McBrydo, who was out of the Territory and would not be able to servo. Being put as a motion this was carried, and the president named Mr. P. A. Alexander for the vacant place. Tho committee now consists of Messrs Crawford, Brandt, Alex ander, Wolters and Larson. Tho treasurer presented the name of Mr. John Naleimallo of Koloa for membership. IIo was duly elected. Tho president suggested that there wore several matters which should receive the early attention of tho Chamber, among which wore deep sea harbor selection and construction; tho question of an Annual Territorial Fair, and the surprising action taker! by tho Forestry Commission in regard to camping sites nnd summer outing lots in the upland country back of Waimoa. Gut as the time of tho pres ent session was so limited, it would J scarcely be feaslblo to take action on them on this occasion. Mr. Moragno forcoably expressed his disapproval of the hold up prices which had been placed on the Kokeo lots. He said, "they were unreason able and would result in keeping out tho people who needed that sort of outing tho most." Mr. Lydgato suggested that there were several important matters call ing for tho early attention of the Chamber, matters that could scarce ly bo allowed to go over to the next regular meeting in October. Accord ingly ho proposed that a special meet ing be called to deal with them at an earlier date, to bo set by tho presi dent. The president accepted this suggestion and will act accordingly. Mr. Brandt then introduced Mr. McDlll, who was making a hurried tour of tho Islands in tho interest of the coming Y. M. C. A. drive to raise a largo fund for war work. Mr. McDlll is a pleasant and effect ive speaker, easy and fluent as well as direct and forceable. IIo spoke in part as follows: "Tho American military authorities havo laid hands bodily on the Y. M. C. A. They havo conscripted it as they havo their armies. Tho moving impulse- and tho ontiro policy of the Y. M. C. A. is to help our soldiers wherever, whenever and however It can. It takes him from his home sur roundings and follows him all along tho lino until ho gets back to them again. Y. M. C. A. secretaries or ngents personally conduct the troop trains and ships, and render assist ance in ovory way they can. And that this association is prized is shown by such incidents as this: 'A Y. M. C. A. man on the Pacific Coast just happen ed to pick up a train of marines and J traveled with them a few hours, re turning to his home, in Southern Cali fornia. Before the time came for him to leave them, tho boys took up a col A HEAD-ON COLLISION An accident that was saved from fatal consequences only by some mira culous good foituno happened Sunday afternoon on tho Kapaia hill when a motorcydo coining up tho grade ran Into the Cheatham car in a head on collision that seems difficult to explain, as tho c-.:r was on the right sido of tho road and tho lino of vision clear. Tho niotorcyclo was smashed to flinders, but strange to say, the riders, two young Japancso from Koloa, escaped with only a few minor scratches. :: Mr. C. Ahana of Huleia is expecting 1C0 pure bred pulluts from tho main land. Mr. Ahana is planing to raiso small pati'h of alfalfahls own feed. Ho will plant a small patch of alfalfa for a starter. lection and tendered him tho amount of his fare to the East and back If ho would go with them.' Everywhere along tho line, both at homo and abroad, the men are volu able in their appreciation of tho servi ces rendered by tho Y. M. C. A. t "Out of every 1000 letters examined by the censor, 90S specifically com mend thjs organization and most of them ;request their friends at home to 'boost tho Y. M. C. A.' "Two secretaries accompany every trn'nspdrt, and do much to relievo the tedium and discomfort of the voyage. Some of theso transports carry as many as 13000 troops, which is far be yond their normal passenger capacity, so that tho men havo to sleep in re lays of eight hour shifts. When thoy land in France, after being cooped up on tho voyage they very soroly need athletic exercise. Tho Y. M. C. A. has proper athletic fields thoroughly equipped for tho recreation of theso great hordes of men that pour in by every steamer. ' "In tho trenches tho Y. M. C. A furnishes that most vital of all things, recreation, as a relief from the intense strain that would otherwise drive men to tho mad house. Thoy do this in different ways: By means of athotics they have an option on all tho ath letic equipment in America and are turning to England besides thoy do It by means of music through such mon as Harry Lauder, whom you know. They do it through summer rest hotels and outing places every where, all along the lino, and under all the trying conditions, tho Y. M. C. A. Is serving the soldier, making him more fit and more contonted. "You all know of the supremo con fidence that General Pershing places in the Y. 51. C. A., and that tho whole canteen service has been iven over to them. This is an enterpriso of giagantic proportions which calls of. course for vast sums of money. "In the matter of campaigns for funds for tho Y. M. C. A. and similar interests, it has been considered ex pedient to mako a combined joint ef fort rather than scattered individual efforts. A confcrcnco of theso various interests has placed tho combined bugct of tho Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C.'a., tho Knights of Columbus and tho Li brary work at $133,000,000. This vast sum has been carefuully apportioned to tho various sections of the country. Tho Pacific Coast quota, to which Ha wr.il belongs, being 5 percent or $6, G75.000, and of this, 8175,000 has been apportioned to the Hawaiian Islands, which Is very much less than tho lied Cross campaign called for from these Islands. "A mooting is to bo held In Hono lulu on Monday to arrango tho appor tionment of this sum among tho vari ous islands, and In that meeting you will of courso be represented. "In conclusion I am authorized to say that Liberty Bonds will bo accept ed at par by way of subscription to this cause, wlilch may perhaps facili tate somewhat the success of the enterprise." It being then so near'steamor time, it seemed hardly feaslblo to appoint a delegation to this Honolulu meeting from those present, unless it was some ono who was going any way. No ono volunteering, Mr. Warner was ap pointed as delegate to represent tho Chamber, to bo assisted in that ca pacity by any other member of the Chamber who might bo going to town. OFFICER CAPTURES A BURGLAR McBrydo Mill has been missing cop per and lead piping for some time, but were unable to catch the thief, so thoy notified Georgo Kauplko, tho now pollco officer, and requested him to seo what ho could do In tho matter. George Immediately got busy on tho ' case. Ho also got a cluo such a good J cluo in fact that Sunday night he hid I himself In a canofleld near Hanapope. j Ho did not havo long to wait, for prot j ty soon a form loomed up coming down ' tho road. George kept quiet until tho man passed him then ho pounced up on him and brought him to earth. Tho man was a Korean and actually had tho goods on him. IIo confessed that ho was tho burglar. Georgo is re ceiving tho congratulations of his , many friends. "Jack" Horner Off to Training Camp A. Horner, Jr. departed last Tues day afternoon to join his regiment' nt Schofield Barracks, there to await news of his appointment to the ma chine gun school nt Camp Hancock, Georgia. "Jack" has been having a hard time getting into the army. He was such a valuable man as a producer of canned pineapples that the Govern ment wOuld not let him go to a train ing camp, although ho Is away up In military tactics and could pass tho Btlffest kind of an examination so "Jack" goes and gets drafted goes up to Honolulu and Is sent back on leave to can pineapples. Just boforo the pineapple season closed he wont up to Honolulu and put in his application for tho machine gun school at Camp Hancock, Georgia. He believes he has a good chauco to get the appointment. While "Jack" is away to war, A. Horner, Sr. will take over the manage ment of tho cannery. :0: A MUSICAL TREAT COMING The music loving public of Kauai will bo pleased to learn that thoy will again havo the opportunity of hear ing tho Corelll String Trio, the splen did musicians who visited our island about a year ago.

They will offer a musical program of classical, operatic and popular num bers, with harp and violin solos. Lovers of good music will not miss this opportunity ot again hearing this marvelous trio of brothers. They will appear in conjunction with W. A. Fernandez' pictures. Sep tho advertisement for dates. THE NEW CAMP GROUNDS Following tho improvement of the road from Kekaha to the upland country of Pun ka Pole and Kokce, there has been an increasing popu larity of that interesting region, and many small -parties havo mado a day's outing thither with great satis faction. Tho trip can bo made very com fortably from Waimea and return, In six or seven hours or loss. It is advisable for persons who have not been thero before, and who don't know the country, not to drive their own cars, as it is a trying trip for the chauffeur, as well as for tho car. There is a pretty general con census of opinion In favor of tho Puu Ka Pole region rather than Kokee for camping sites, at least of a permanent nature, whenovur that region shall bo thrown open to the public, and a water supply provided. Kokee is apt to bo wet, as well as more inacessible. :0: KAWAIHAU NOTES Col. Spalding celebrated his eighty first birthday last Monday.
