J n regard to the Nnwiliwili
Harbor, the advance information
published by the Garden Island
last week is now being published
by the Honolulu papers in more
detailed form.
The House Committee Bill pro
vides for nil initial appropriation
of $250,000, on the following con
ditions: First. Satisfactory assurances
must be given that railroad con
nections will be made within a
reasonable time, which will make
the harbor accessible, to the en
tire southern portion of the island.
Second. That the rates on the
railroad shall be subject to regu
lation by the Secretary of War.
Third. That in advance of the
undertaking of the work, $200,000
shall be deposited by the County
of Kauai in some bank of the ter
ritory to the credit of the enter
prise. .
Fourth. That no expense shall
be incurred by the Federal Gov
ernment in acquiring any land
which may be needed for the en
terprise. Hanapepe Land
Under Cultivation
According to M. J. Fereira,
former candidate for representa
tive, he has been able to secure
permission to plant cane on about
100 acres of government land at
The lands secured are about 70
acres' below the main road at
Hanapepe. Seventeen acres in an
open gulch on the west side of the
Hanapepe valley, and 13 acres of
former cane land in Hanapepe
valley, recently under "vice and
cultivated by Nido, a Japanese
rice planter.
Nido was under the impression
that he could continue to plant
rice on this land until the land
went under the hammer sometime
this summer, but was recently in
formed by Mr. Fereira to stop
operations on the rice plantation.
Last October Mr. Bivenburgh
gave assurance that all rice plant
ers at Hanapepe or elsewhere on
Kauai, would be assured the
right to continue the cultivation
of vice lands. The 151 acres culti
vated Nido was formerly cane
land, and the land ollice was
probably not informed regarding
the transfer of this land from
cane cultivation to rice. As the
remainder of the land upon which
Fereira intends to plant cane has
been idle for the past year or
more, it is a good thing that it is
now to be put under cultivation.
Begarding the 13 acres of rice
land however, which Nido has al
ready plowed for rice, there
should be some action taken to
see that Mido is either reimburse!
for his labor or that, he is allowed
to continue the cultivation of the
land as he was assured he could
do by the land department last
Last Fridav Mrs. II. Wolters
entertained the Kawaihau work
ers of the Bed Cross at her home

were tastefully decorated and

Kapaa School is
the Place to Lunch
The Kapaa school has inaugu
a ted a well equipped domestic
science kitchen which is doing
excellent work in the way of popu
lar school lunches.
A cool commodious, well venti
lated kitchen has been outfitted
with two lnrge blue ilaine kero
sene stoves, and the necessary
parapernalia for about 150 lunch
es daily. A broad counter-shelf
runs the whole way round on the
inside where the portions are pre
pared and a similar one on the
outside, over which they are dis
The standard lunch is rated at
5 cents, and the lunch furnished
is certainly well worth the money
about twice the value that
could be got anywhere else. The
service is' rendered ljy girls of the
upper grades taking turns, one
day a week. They put in an hour
in the morning, before school, get
ting things started, and then
come back at 11 o'clock for the
final preparation of the meal.
There is a diil'erent menu for
each day of the week, and certain
ly they are appetizing. Some of
them are as follows:
Corn beef and cabbage, corn
bread and tea; vegetable soup,
crotons, apple pudding and cocoa ;
baked beans, jelly sandwiches,
cocoa ; fish chowder, rice pudding,
tea; meat pie, fruit salad, cocoa.
The bill of fare for the day is
put onto the board in each room
so the children may know in ad
vance what is coming' and gauge
their appetites accordingly.
A representative of the Garden
island happened around yester
day, a little in advance of lunch
time, and was so taken by the
"spicy fragrances that drifted over
from the kitchen that lie begged
an invitation to lunch.
With commendable foresight
the kitchen has been placed to
windward of the school buildings,
so that the children know what is
coining; that's the kind of adver
tising that reaches them!
That dav there 15)2 lunches
served, and every one looked hap
py and contented.
The children file past the count
er in regular order, deposit the
five cents in a ginger jar, get
their plates waiting all ready for
them, and then look round for a
sheltered or shady spot on the
lawn, to eat it One band of little
brownies colonized under one of
the bungalows and had a nice,
quiet time by themselves.
In addition to being palatible
and abundant, the lunches are
well balanced with good food
values nronerly disposed. The
effort is to give the very best
lunch possible for the money, and
we venture to say that they arc
certainly doing it.
The Hawaiian Chapter of the
American Bed Cross has been

Manager Herman Wolters of
Kealia Plantation went to town
on Saturday and returned this
An exciting baseball game was
played off yesterday afternoon on
the park diamond opposite Kapaa
school between Lihue grammar
school and the nine stars from
Kapaa. The game resulted in a
victory for the boys from Lihue
by a score of 11 to 8. This was in
retaliation for a similar defeat
inflicted some weeks ago by the
Kapaa bunch and the rubber is
yet to be played . Yesterday's
game reached the exciting climax
in the ninth inning when Kapaa
made a spurt and shoved in three
runs in quick succession and the
Lihue fans became noticeably
nervous. Good pitching and a
rally of the infield however stop
ped the onslaught just in time to
leave a respectable margin in fav-
or of' the visitors.
Among the large crowd of en
thusiastic rooters from both
schools, four teachers from Lihue
and Kapaa schools were very
much in evidence. The Y. M. O.
A. is offering a pennant to the
school winning the highest per
centage of games until March 1st.
All Kauai grade schools will be
eligible to enter the contest and
the roar of the rooters will soon
be heard in the land.
Immediately following yester
day's game Mrs. Katherine Burke,
with characteristic chivalry,
soothed the overworked nerves of
Hie teachers, including the meek
md wilting umpire, with hot
buttered toast and tea.
The line up for Kapaa: Isami,
Ha wo, Satpru, Yoshichi, Figi,
luan, Kainechi, John P., Kiyoshi;

Yoshiake, Shige Koon Lini, Mac-
aro, Tadaichi, Willie; subs, James
and John; Umpire, J. Warner.
The following account of the
ball game at Kapaa on Sunday,
Jan. 7th, came in too late to be
published in the last issue:
On Sunday, the 7th, the Juniors
motored to Kapaa and defeated
the Homesteaders badly, with a

Homesteaders respectively. The
Juniors started the scoring and

The Homesteaders have a good
team but are lacking in teamwork
and practice. They rather de
pend on the umpire for the game.
It was a mighty fortunate thing
to have Thomas, head carpenter
for Lihue plantation, as one of
the umpires. There isn't any
criticism in his umpiring, no
sees things that most umps cant
spy in a game.
The fans are partly to blame
for the Homesteaders losing. They
criticized and scolded at the play
ers each time they made an error,
when they really needed encour

Sometime last Saturday night
or early Sunday morning, burg-
irs entered .1. t. Silva's store at
Kalalieo and carried away mer
chandise valued at about -?2(!0.
The robber-' gained entrance to
t lie store by forcing the lock on
the door of the watchman's room.
which was located in the rear of
the store and which was not oc
cupied on the night of the rob
bery. A hallway and two locked doors
separated the main part of the
store from the watchman's quart
ers, but two more locked doors
did not faze the robbers, who
made a good job at breaking thru
these and helped themselves to
the goods behind the counters.
The stock stolen consisted of
24 pairs of shoes, 10 sweaters, a
large assortment of blankets,
several boxes of cigars, and a long
list of other articles of consider
able value.'
There was no cash stolen as
there had been none left in the
store over the week end. The rob
bers passed up a large quantity of
canned goods and groceries, evi
dently having no use for these
commodities. A gunny sack full
of cheap clothing was also left be
hind, although the thieves had
taken the trouble to remove the
clothing from the shelves and
packed it into the bag ready to
carry away.

Red Cross Drive
Under Full Swing
The Bed Cross Drive now in
progress promises well. It is of
course, too early to predict final
results but a membership of up
wards of 5000 is hoped for. Be-
newed orders are coming in from
various outer districts which in
dicate that things are going well.

A meagre report has reached
Lihue that Kenneth Cameron,
formerly employed as a black
smith by Wm. Hyde Bice, of Li
hue, has been killed in France by
shrapnel fire sometime in May,
Cameron, while here was an ex
cellent workman, but of a some
what retiring disposition. Leav
ing here some six years ago, he
went to Samoa, and when the war
broke out, went to Australia and
enlisted, going to England and
France with the famous Anzacs.
A machine lias been perfected.
and brought to successful trial
for the manufacture of bags,
twine, etc., from the fibre of ban
ana stalks. So thoroughly assur
ed is the success of the machine
that a company is being formed
in Honolulu to undertake the
manufacture on a large scale.
If a commercial success, this
invention will prove a great boon
to these islands, for we have a
large source of supply in the thou
sands of banana trees that go to
waste when the fruit is cut, and
a large demand from the sugar
and rice industries for millions
of bags.
The machine is now on exhibit
ion in Honolulu, and it seems to
give good satisfaction. Here's to
its commercial success.
