ESTABLISHED 1904. .VOL. 15. NO. 46.
The pol supper given by Mr. and
.Mrs. S. V. Wilcox in honor of the ra
.urn of their daughter Mabol from
rtervico in France, was a social event
of more than ordinary interest and im
portance. The spacious and beautiful
..oiiii) lent itself most admirably to the
.leeds of the occasion, with plenty of
.oom for the long tables, without dis
curbing the drawing room with its
:iovol and interesting display of things
pertaining to the war.
The supper, itself, was a triumph of
lawaiian culinary art, such as none
but the high chiefs on rare occasions,
jrobably, ever saw. All the nicer
dishes wero there in tho daintiest and
. lost appetizing shape.
Following tho supper the guests de
.otcd themselves mainly to tho ex
: initiation of the remarkable collect
on of souvenirs brought from the
rront. Tho most conspicious among
these was the fine display of posters,
n themselves an art gallery of the
: tate of war. One whole series of
lood conservation posters, were the
ork of French children, and did them
I reat credit by their artistic merit as
well as their originality. One small
roster was a facsimile of tho last
1 age of tho famous "Scrap of Paper"
treaty, guaranteeing Belgian neutral
ity, with tho seals of the signing di
l.lomats. Another particularly fine poster was
a large one in the interest of the anti
tubercular campaign in France. The
O.elicacy and harmony of tho coloring,
f nd the pathos and appeal of the re
tjrning hero, on whom tho fatal hand
c.f the disease had been laid, were
worthy of a choice place in any art
Another very interesting dispiiy
vhich merited careful study was tho
collection ofmedals and small souve
rirs, the latter picked up mostly on
tho battle fields. Tho medals were
vorks of art, many of them of sur
prising fineness and wealth of detail,
mostly in bronze, each one telling its
tile in its own original way.
Two or three of Uiqso medals were
personal decorations granted to Miss
"Willcox for distinguished service; one
from tho French authorities and ono
from tho Queen of Belgium.
Another uniquo little display was
that of tho diminutive charms to bo
worn as talismans against disaster or
misfortune. Some of them were small
er than a ten cent piece, but wero of
proved efficiency. Ono worn by Miss
"Wilcox was sufficient to ward off sea
s'.ckness across the Atlantic, but fail
e.l to withstand the evils of tho Kauai
channel aboard tho Kinau. But, per
haps this was too far away from home
for a charm to bo expected to work.
Ono little souvenir of grim, personal
interest, was a fragment of shrapnel
which fell In an air-raid on the roof
of the hospital where Miss "Wilcox was
stationed. She went out and picked
it up immediately afterwards.
Thero were more things of Interest
than could bo properly examined and
appreciated in ono evening; it would
bo a fine thing to have a public exhi
bition of them, say at tho Mokihana

The Grove Farm League
The Grove Farm league had some
lively games last Sunday. The H. A.
C. won from the J. A. C. by a score of
9 to 7. The Japanese were leading up
to tho sixth Inning, but Iwata, the Jap
pitcher, blew up and allowed tho H.
A. C. two runs, which cinched tho
In tho second game the Portuguese
started the ball to rolling by annexing

were right on their toes all the time.
The Filipinos wero not in form, but
made a game light. Tho scoro Was 7-5.
The batteries were: Iwata and B.

fudge Iljorth, of the Lihue Dis

few day's. Sunday is a quiet day,
and thero is many a quiet spot
among the outlying quarters and
secluded rice plantations- where
an active gambling game stands
a good chance of "getting by"
safely. Accordingly the early part
ot t lie week is apt to be a busy
time in district court circles.
During Monday and Tuesday
the judge took in 105 in forfeited
bail from these venturesome gent

from Japanese to German, some
two dozen of them.

The B 220 was the first to enter
Port Allen and displayed a nice
piece of maneuvering when she
was brought up so close that a
sailor stepped from the sub to

The news soon spread about the
visitors in port and it was not

Fined $1000
The case of Ed. Scharsch, up
before the Circuit Court on a
charge of seduction, came to trial
this last week witli the result
that the young man was sen
tenced to pay a fine of 1000.
Appeal has been taken on excep
tions. At one point in the case the
evidence was of such a delicate
nature that 'the court room was
cleared of spectators and only
those directly involved in the case
wero allowed to remain.
Next Friday, Nov. 21st, is Arbor
Day. Plant a tree, every ono who can,
and take care of those you have.

One Ishi Tsuru, a Japanese lady
hostess running a plantation boarding
house at Makawell, brought an action
of damages of large proportions
against tho Hawaiian Sugar Company
'n the current term which ran to con
s'derublo length. It seems that she
went to Honolulu, leaving her board
ers in the lurch, so tho plantation
tool: over tho boarding house as well
.is some eiTouts belonging to her.
This gave Iter a legal opening and a
chance for damages. She set her ma
terial losses and injured feelings at
.-530.000 and fought for tho same tenac
iously through several days of litiga
tion, but Judge Franklin instructed
the jury to find against her.
Judge Dickey being a stock-holder
of Hawaiian Sugar, was disqualified
for sitting on the caso, so that he was
only an interested onlooker.
L. J. Wan en, of Smith & "Warren,
handled the case for the Hawaiian
Sugar Company, whilo A. G. Kaulukou
represented tho plaintiff.
It 13 reported that the caso will be
appealed to tho Supreme Court.

Mr. E. F. Wood is out again
after a siege of the prevailing
cold epidemic,
Armistice Day was a big day
at the Waipouli Pace Track. Peo
ple began to arrive at an early
hour and by 10 :250 both sides of
the race course wero lined with
cars. There were 2,(100 paid' ad
missions nud about 2200 auto park
ing permits issued.
One of the pleasing features of
the day was that everything came
oil as per schedule; there wore no
tiresome delays as is so often ex
perienced in affairs of this kind.
The different events wero watch
ed with interest, though there was
none of that hilarious and noisy
enthusiasm one sees at a similar
event on the Mainland.
in the racing events tho Belay
Ilaee and the Pony Express were
the most interesting; Werner won
from .fohn Malina in the finals of
the former, while the Kapaa team
carried tho banner to victory in
the latter event.
In the first preliminary of the
tug-of-war, between Grove Farm
and Waimea, the latter won father
easily as tho Grove Farmers were
not ready at the signal to pull.
Kekaha won the second prelimin
ary by default. In the linals Ke
kaha won from Waimea in two
straight pulls, ono minute and
thirty seconds and one minute and
seventeen seconds respectively.
' In the burrow race, Philip
Bice's mount led the field by sev
eral lengths until within a few
feet of the wire, when suddenly
the Kona nightingale seemed to
have an idea, and stopped to give
it due consideration. What over
it was lie (or she?) did not get it
straightened out until the rest of
the lield had ambled by, much to
the disgust of Philip.
Wilson, the wonder horse, under
the direction of his owner, Mr.
Harris, gave an exhibition of in
telligence that was almost human.
"King" Baggot surprised the
assemblage with his exhibition of
trick riding and fancy roping. It
was well done, and was thoroughly
enjoyed by the big crowd, to most
of whom it was absolutely new.
The children's program of
sports, under the supervision of
G. S. Hayniond and II. T. Barclay,
was held in the polo field, and pro
vided amusement for the young
sters for a large part of the day.

Ladies on the Lawn
The hulies of Lihue, to the num

on the beautiful athletic lawn at
the .Moler's Monday afternoon for
the initial volley ball games of
the season.
In addition to the "old timers"
of last year there wore many new
new faces, and new enthusiasms,
from among the new coiners in
our midst, especially the teachers.
After playing Uie regulation
ladies' game of volley ball they
look a turn at the boy's game of
baseball, and found it'lots of fun.
