KAUAI CHAMBER OF " BACKS In a special meeting held at the Court house in Lihuo last Thursday afternoon, tho Kauai Chamber of Commerce endorsed tho proposed wharf toll program. Tho vote was not unanimous, however, some !nnmlinr3 fnnllncr Mint tVin tnlla wouI(, work unnecessary hardBhlpa on tho people of Kauai and tho other outer Islands. A letter from tho superintendent of public works, Lyman H. Blgelow. was read, calling the Kauai cham ber's attention to tho proposed tolle. President Wishard slatnd to tho meeting that the toll3 were published ' he Garden Island of November lnth. Everyone had read and studied them and was prepared io air his opinion on them. Broadbcnt Makes Comparicons. E. H. W. Broadbent reported io tho meeting that ho had compared tho tolls proposed by govormcnt with those charged by prlvatu enterpris es at Ahukini and Port .Allen and that tho government ohargp would be much less. H. D. Sloggett called the chamber's attention to tho fact that when foreign freight is brought, into Honolulu a toll is collected in town. Then when the samo goods aro shipped on to Kauai, another toll is levied. This, ho said, works a hard ship on tho 'outside islands, or in other words places a pemally upon anyone that lives outside of Hono lulu. Six Millions In Wharves. Senator C. A. Rico explained to tho chamber that tho government has already spent threo million dol lars on territorial wharves. A like amount is to bo spent in tho future. Last year tho territory had to spend forty-six thousand dollars in addi tion to tho income from tho wharves in maintaining and keeping them fit for service. And tho $40,000 did not include any interest on tho sink ing fund. At this point, the chamber's pres ident suggested that the problem bo approached from two angles. It should first be decided whether tho principle is right or not, and then, if it is right, the meeting must de cide whether tho amount of the tolls aro proper. The Bill Endorsed. A. Englohard moved that tho the ory of the tolls is correct and that tho Kauai Chamber of Commerce endorse it. His motion was second ed by W. H. Rice Jr. A half a dozen men were 'ready when tho president called for com ments. Frank Crawford said that he did not believe the toll is any fair er than tho old fashioned road or bridge tolls were. He showed that territorial wharves aro different from state wharves, where tolls are charge ed, in that tho entire territory Is taxed for a wharf In any part of the islands. But it California builds a wharf she pays for it herself. A dozen other places may ship goods fom it however. So, It is only fair that the other states should have to help California with her burdeni Senator Rico pointed out that if this toll is not passed additional direct taxes will havo to bo levied to keep up and maintain the wharv es. And W. II. Rico Jr. said that ho belioved that by this tax, the burden of keeping up tho wharves would bo partly shifted to aliens who uso tho wharves as much as anyone else. A. G. Clutterbuck said that this toll, small as it is, amounts to a great deal to retailers and whole salers of commodities in ovoryday uso. Tho dealors havo to pass that tax on to consumers. Mr. Clutter buck belioved that a small direct tax would bo better distributed and much fairer. After all tho members had express ed their opinions, President Wishard put tho question. Evidently none had been much moved by anyone elso's arguments. Tho motion was carried but with tho votes In about tho samo proportion as tho men orig inally, pro and con, had been num bered. A Uniform Toll. It was then moved by E. II. W. Broadbent that tho Kauai Chamber of Commerce recommend to tho Board of Harbor Commissioners that all goods oxportcd from tho Islands COMMERCE NEW WHARF TOLLS should be placed under tho 15 cents a ton classification, tho same as sugar. Tho motion was seconded by C. A. Rice, and unanimously car ried. C. A. Baggott's Motion Lost. C. A. Baggott then moved that one single toll bo made for the territory equalizing the wharf charges for Oahu and tho outside islands, pro viding the bill of lading shows that tho goods were originally billed for tho ouUide islands when they were sent from tho coast. This motion was seconded by H. T. Barclay but wus later withdrawn. Mr. Clutterbuck showed that somo shippers did not use tho wharves for all goods, in receiving lumber for instance. Small boats aro simply lashed together and tho lumber Is never brought to tho wharf but drawn directly up on tho beach. Others pointed out the fact that where surfboats were used the samo service is not received as where tho boats tie up alongside tho dock. To compensate for these inequal ities, W. H. Rico Jr. mado a motion that where the boats do uot land at tho wharves and where surf boats are used in unloading or in loading freight, tho toll should bo one-half tho proposed rates. This motion was seconded by A. Englehard and unani mously carried. Compliments Moklhana Club. H. D .Sloggett moved that a sur plus of ?39 loft after all bills had been paid for the last Chamber of Commerce banquet, be turned over to tho ladles of tho Moklhana Club who had furnlshod tho banquet. Tho motion was passed with applause for the ladles. A ' vote of thanks waa also voted to them for their great help. UNION THANKSGIVING SERVICE It Is in perfect accord with the true spirit of tho early founders of America, that the chief executive of our nation, as well as the Govern ors of tho states and territories, an nually invite the people of tho Unit ed States to return thanks to God for His blessings to the country. Tho official public act of tho pro clamation by tho President, and tho proper observance of tho service by tho constituency of tho nation exerts a salutatory Influence and cannot fail to secure for us a continuance of Divine favors.

Rogerst head of the his tory department of the Kauai high school, was hostess to tho boyit of the Lihuo dormitory last ThurHdaj night at a beach picnic. Imemdiately following football practice the picnickers rallied at Niumalu boach and experienced the double shock of a simultaneous bilt and fresh water bath, for old J. Pluvius was on tho Job with Father Noptune. A bonfire discouragingly encourag ed by tho chaperones, namely Miss es Johnson and Lindsay, and Mrs. Locke, struggled, sputtered and wont pau. Nothing daunted, though outwardly dampened, while part of the party climbed aboard tho Y. M. C. A. carry-all, tho remainder command eered a Jltnoy fish cart and were sooa under the ample roof of Popa Unahoa. A few calesthenlc contortions quickly warmed the chilled and dis comforts wero forgotten when four pots of baked beans, three dishes of salad, countless sandwiches, pick les, olives, pieces of cheese and cups of lemonade topped off with sliced pineapplo and cake smothered in chocolate were sighted on port and larboard of a well braced luau table. One incident threatened to mar the joy of tho occasion: Eddie Kam had signified indisposition early In tho evening. The shock of the cold bath combined with tho cool of the even ing breeze affected Eddie to the de gree that ho was able to ncgotiato only threo plates of beans, six sand wiches (???), pickles, chceso and doughnuts. Tho rest of tho party In sympathy to Eddlo, ato in propor tion. After a flurry of unsychopated jazz executed by Miss LlndBay, E. Wer ner, Jimmy Chong et al., a parlor baseball game botween Hanalei and Walmea held the crowd tenso to a 28-17 finish. Lack of control of pitch er, Peto Leong, and tho bunting tac tics and heavy-hlttlng propensities of Tony and Shlnlchl lost the game for the west-slders. A challenge from tho all-stars resulted in tho latter hanging a 18-11 scoro on tho formor champs. Tho dormitory motto being "Early to bed, late to rise makes a guy frisky, husky and wise," threo cheers for Mrs. Rogers wero given with a snap and a unanimous vote declared for tho best time over.
