Death of Geo. Goodacre
News has been received recently of
the tragic death of Mr. Geo. Goodacre,
of San Jose, California, formerly for
many years resident of Koloa.
Ho was on his way from San Jose
to Riverside, where he had orange
grove interests, and was being driven
by a friend, but in his own car, when,
in attempting to pass another car on
a narrow road, the car turned turtle,
and both were badly Injured, Mr. Good
acre so seriously that he died within
a few hours. His daughter, Miss
Genevieve, through some delay of the
telegram, did not get the sad news
until late the next day, too late to see
her father alive.
Mr. Goodacre came to the Islands
away back in the 70's In company with
Mr. Hundley of Kealia, and they were
both engaged by the Makee Sugar Co.
Later Mr. Goodacro took up the sugar
business and was for many years
manufacturing mill manager for the
Koloa plantation. Later he was plan
tation manager for the Smith interests
in Koloa, and then Koloa assistant
manager for McBryde, when that corp
oration took over those interests.
He was an uncommonly genial, kind
ly and generous man, with a good
word for everyone, and well liked by
everyone. Ho will be remembered
with very kindly recollections by
many friends of he old days of twenty
years ago. Ho married Mr. DeLacey's
sister, who died some years ago. Ho
leaves an only daughter, Miss Gene
vieve, who has the hearty sympathy
of a large circle of friends hero.

McBryde Beach Party
The people of McBryde Plantation,
Eleele and Hanapepe enjoyed a most
successful beach party at the plantat
ion beach at Wahlawa, last Sunday.
After a dandy swim and water ath
letics, a picnic supper on the lanal of
the beach house was enjoyed by all
members of the party, numbering
nearly fifty.
After supper the race for the coffee
kettle that Btarted out to sea was
rather exciting. The Captain was too
strong a swimmer for the boat crow
and carried off the honors. All joined
in having a "good old sing'.' until they
ran out of songs, ending up with the
National Anthem at 8:30. It'has been
decided to have another beach party
next full moon.
Last Wednesday afternoon a party
of Lihue folk, with a few good fellows
from Kapaa, foregathered at Nlumalu
for tho avowed purpose of eating
T-bone steaks broiled over tho coals.
Needless to say tho purpose was ac
complished in a highly satisfactory
manner. Besides the T-bonos and
coffee, which tho gentlemen of tho
party prepared, tho ladles had provid
ed many things that go far to making
life worth while. After tho repast, sing
ing around the camp fire was the order
and later (after the T-bonos were set
tled), swimming was enjoyed.

has given tho Kapaa Homesteaders'
and Cooperative Association the au
thority to look after tho government
water of the Kapahl Stream, as ho
promised to do somo time ago, provid
ed that the homesteaders would got
together on tho proposition.
With the association In charge of
the irrigation water, it Is now of prlmo
importance that all water users in tho
Kapaa district become members of tho
association so that they can have a
say in matters regarding the irrigation
water supply. By keeping out of tho
association the aro not prevented
from using the water as long as thoy
pay their own share in the upkeep of
ditches and for the distribution of the
water, but as long as they have to pay
the upkeep taxes they might just as
well join tho association. Why pay
taxes without representation?

escape. Anderson is said to be an
exceptionally good talker, and this
chance to see and hear the young hero
should not be missed.
Converts to Fertilizer
Tho Hanalei rlco planters are
staunch believers in fertilizer. Years
ago they had no use for it. Cost too
much money. Chinese are tho most
conservative people on earth, and the
Hanalei Chinese wore the kind that
came out of tho ark. One of the plan
tations there, somo years ago met with
disaster in the shape of a big wash
out that left them stranded, and de
layed their work so that they were re
duced to one crop In tho year instead
of tho u-nial two. Mr. Sanborn assured
them that this need make no difference
in their recipts if thoy would only
use fertilizer, that they would get as
much out of one crop as thoy had be
fore out of two. They were utterly
skeptical In regard to any such out
come, and only when ho absolutely
guaranteed them against loss would
they try It. Tho result Justified his
prediction, thoy got the two crops In
one, and wero so far ahead that they
no longer gainsay the value of ferti
lizer. Ever since that they havo bunk
ed on it and bought it freely.
Attorney Claudius H. McBrido of
Honolulu undJUlss Helen AkI Mikaele,
daughter of tho lato Souator Mikaolo
of Kauai, were married Thursday
morning at Wahlawa, Oahu. Tho cere
mony waj performed by Rev. S. K. Oi
II, the witnesses being Albert Robarts
and T. Oda. Mr. and Mrs. McBrido
will make their home In the city.
Llhue ball players who desire to
make the team that Is boing organized
will leavo tholr names with Mr. J. O.
Warner, nt his ofllco in the Y. M. C. A.
Word has been received by Sen
ator J, H. Conoy that his daughter
Cathorluo was operated on for appen
dicitis. Slit Is recovering nicely.
The Grand Jury for tho prcBonl term
of tho Circuit Court was called thin
morning by Judge Dickey and com
pleted their work at n slnglo sitting.
True bills wore found In two cases.
One was postponed because of the
absence on Molokal of tho essential
witness. In one case no truo bill was
found because of insufficient evidence.
There was one Filipino murder case
of an aggravated and uncalled for na
ture from Kalahco, and one Filipino
assault and battery case with a danger
ous weapon. This also seemed to have
very little Justification. Tho no truo
bill caso was one of lnrcony, where a
man forgot his purse with a consider
able sum of money ut a certain houso
and failed to find It when he came
back to look for It.
Next Wednesday evening, May "1,
the residents of Kauai will have their
first opportunity to witness the
"Hearts of tho World." the greatest
film masterpiece ever broight to these
Islands. It is a story of the great war,
picturing battlefield scjimm and tho
carnage and death sur is-'les of two
tinues in most realistic fashion.
Throughout tho story iuns a ro
mance of love, so delicately woven
and Intermingled with mur.Mn1 phases,
portraying tho staunchness of two
hearts though separated by war, that
it has been called the sweetest love
story ever told.
All phases of the great conflict and
it3 attendant angles are portrayed.
From the charge of poilus and Tom
mies over Hun trenchos, from the
roar and flash of big guns, from dis
play of heroic feats, from shell hole
to back of the lines where tho poor
oppressed inhabitants of occupied
territory are terrorized and made vic
tims of Hun kultur, thd picture brings
home the knowledge gained only by
those who went through that hell of
carnage and misery.
The Y secretaries aro kopt pretty
active these days . supervising the
school sports in addition to their club
On Sunday last a Bible study class
was organized at Kalaheo with twelve
members. At Lihue tho Sunday Even
ing Club held their meeting in tho
armory with thirty-five present. The
young men under the leadership of Mr.
Watada proved they can sing hymns
as finely as war songs. Mr. Warner
spoke on tho question "Wherewith
shall a young man cleanse his way?"
Next Sunday evening Mr. G. A. Young,
educational secretary of Nuuanu Y,
Honolulu, will speak. A six o'clock
luncheon will be served followed by
a social hour before Mr. Young's ad

this subject. The Y. M. C. A. is ar
ranging his itinerary which will cover
a week.
A supply of boxing gloves, indoor
baseball and volley ball, matorlal has
recently been added to the Y equip
ment. Young men Interested In join
ing a boxing class will do well to con
sult Mr. Warner. With basket ball
coming into voguo, together with
other indoor sports, a wider uso of the
armory has been planned with the con
sent of tho authorities. These sports
however are not to be encouraged to
the disparagement of baseball, which
should occupy the front of tho stage
at this season.

Three games of the .school series
were played oil' last week. On
Thursday six automobiles hustled
Die Lihue grammar school team
with thirty-live lusty rooters in
their train, to Waimea. The trip
may have weakened the morale of
the visitors somewhat. At any
rale Waimca's heavy hatters made
the game a little too fast for the
Lihue lads, who were noticeably
smaller, and the settle at the end
til the game was 18-7 in Waimea's
On Friday the Lihue fans were
treated to an exciting match be
tween Kapaa and Koloa on neu
tral ground. I'reliminary to the
baseball game the girls staged a
basket ball match in the armory.
Knpaa's second team played a
team of beginners from liana
maulu, followed by their lirst and
finest set against the girls from
Koloa. Kapaa won botli games
ami showed a decitled advantage
over their opponents in knowledge
and skill in basketball. There
were no hard feelings however, as
it was generally understood that
both llanamaulu and Koloa teams
were just beginners. A large
audience was present which pres
ages well for the future of girls'
basket ball on Kauai.
Out tin the baseball diamond
there was a battle royal that after
noon. The game was exciting
from the start, not because the
scoring was close, but because of
fast playing and close decisions
on bases. The crowd from Lihue
seemed to sympathize with Koloa
although the Kapaa rooters kept
up full chorus continually. Kain
came dashing down upon the com
batants for an inning or two and
made the ball slippery but did not
put out the lire of youthful en
thusiasm, and the game was play
ed out. resulting in a final score
or ll'-l' in Kapaa's favor. It is
understood that Koloa will pro
test the game on the grounds that
one of tlie umpires was a Kapaa

again culled on to defend their
honor against Waimea at Koloa.
