Kauaians Get A
Chance to See
Kalalau by Sea
Hoo ray! On April 8th wo, wilt nil
tnko a day off and boo Kalalau. And
wo wont havo to hlko our legs off
an a dangerous trail to do It either.
Wo'll Just sit still on tho good ship
Klnnu and sco tho sights in stylo.
It's only going to cost us six bucks
per each to do It too.
It's this way. Nearly ovcrybody
on the Island wants to sco Kalalau
and havo wanted to boo It for
yours. But It is a hard, dangerous
hlko and it is now an impossible
horseback rldo. So a lot of people
havo been wondering why tho Inter
Island didn't send a boat up and
havo an excursion around tho In
land. That Is Just exactly what Is goin?
to tako place. That Is, wo think
that it is. It Is if 125 peoplo want
to go. Tho Inter-Island can't afford
to send a boat for fewer passongurs
than that. But It probably won't be
any trick at all to get moro than
that many to go.
Tho following letter from It. W.
Smith of tho passenger department
of the Inter-Island tells all about
this proposition:
''Having received a suggestion
from tho people of Kauai that this
company run an excursion around
tho island of Kauai, tho S. S. Klnau
will bo dispatched from Waimea
about 7 a. m., on Saturday, April
8th, touching at Nawiliwill for ad
ditional passengers about 9 a. m.
and then to continue around tho
island, passing Hanalel bay and tho
Na Pall cliffs.
Passengers making the trip will
disembark later In the afternoon of
tho same day at Waimea and Ko
loa, from which latter port tho
steamer will proceed to Honolulu.
"Tickets may bo procured from
Mr. Plckard, our agent at Nawiliwill-
at $6 each und it will bo ne
cessary to have 125 .tickets sold
prior to April 3fd in order that tho
proper arrangements can bo mado
at Honolulu for the trip. In tho
event of tho required number of
bookings not being obtained, money
will bo refunded to thoso having
purchased tickets."
At tho annual meeting of th.i
stockholders of tho Waimea Stablej

Saturday, March 4, a general reor

Hawaiian Civic
Club of Kauai
Two weeks ngo last Sunday, some
of tho leading IIawailans called a
mooting which was held at Koloa
for tho purposo f considering 'tho
advisability of forming n club am
ongst the Hawallans of this Island
to promote community spirit and
unity, and to get behind movements
for tho best lntorosts of this Is
lnnd or of tho various communities
In which they live. A number of
Hawallans from Hnnalel to Waimea
mot at tho Koloa church and listen
ed to Mr. Lota discourse on tho
subject of unity. After tho church
sorvlco, the Koloa boys invited tho
malahinls to go over to Mr. Blako's
house and invcstlgato puaa and pol.
After luncheon, Mr. Crowoll of
Waimea explained tho Idea of gath
ering and a temporary organization
was affected with Mr. Crowoll as
president and Mr. Blako as secro
tary. Tho secretary was instructed
to get in touch with tho Hawaiian
Civic Club of Honolulu and got from
them a copy of their constitution.
The me'eting then adjourned to meot
again in Kapaa two weeks later.
Last Sunday at the Hawaiian hall
at Kapaa, tho permanent organiza
tion of tho club was effected. Over
70 leading Hawallans, men and wo
men, wero present and took active
part in tho work of- organizing. Tho
officers of the now club aro W. O.
Crowell, president; J. M. Kaneakua,
secretary; S. W. Melatonin, assistant
secretary; Nicholas Akana, treasur
er; fivo vice presidents, one from
each district are Luther Waiamau,

cational: S. Keliinol, J. K. Waiamau,
J. K. Lota, 'J. K. Kula, Chas. K.
There wero also appointed com
mittees appointed on health, legis
lation and industry.
A study of the list of officers and
committee chairmen, who will prob
ably form tho executive commltteo
of the club will reveal tho fact that
a movement for the unity of the
Hawallans and for the promotion of
community spirit is in safe hands.
It Is the intontion of thoso who
havo become members to bury tho
hatchet and got behind every pro
position for tho progress of Kauai as
well ns the smaller communities In
which they as members reside. They
will also delvo into questions which
involve terrltorial-wldo activities, if
At tho church sorvlco preceding
the organization of tho club, Lota
again, gave ono of his holpful lec
tures on tho need of getting togeth
er; Frank Wooloy, who came in dur
ing tho organization of tho club, was
invited by tho president to address
tho gathering. Ho also emphasized
tho need of getting together ami of
preparing to meet tho needs of tho
future. Ho dwelt on tho rehabili
tation project about to bo launched
on Molkal, and advised his audi
enco not to wait until tho last min
ute boforo thinking about tho pro
ject, but rather to plan at this tlmo
to send tho best men who can bo
picked up to go to Molokal to tako
up this project; men who aro not
afraid to work. When ho stoppod
talking without having said anything
about tho dolegatcshlp, ho was urg
ed to speak again on tho question
of tho fitness of tho various can
didates. His explanation why Mr.
Baldwin should bo elected was en
thusiastically received by his hear
ers. A flno lunch prepared by tho Ka
paa boys with George Mahlkoa and
John Oplo as tho commltteo, was
enjoyed by all tho members. The
club will meet again at Wnimoa in
tho near future when tho Waimea
boyc will do tho honors.
Tho Hanalel robbery caso which
Is to bo tried on a now charge, Is
set for trial on Monday, March 27,
Senator Harry Baldwin, Republi
can cnndldato for tho Hawaiian dole
gateshlp to Congress, will arrive on
Kauai tomorrow morning to mnko
u speaking tour of the Island. Sen
ator Baldwin will bo accompanied
by Senator John Wise, Samuel B.
Kalama, chairman of tho Maul board
of supervisors, and Ilev, Stephen L.
Desha, of Hawaii.
The tenchers and pupils of tho
Lihue grammar school staged a car
nival on tho night of Mnrch 10th
at tho Llhuo armory. To say that
it was a success would be llko say
ing that mother's lemon pic Is
fairly good. It was a roaring suc
cess. People swarmed In and out of
tho armory and St. Peter will never
bo moro popular than tho ticket
seller at the gato. However It was
ono of tho most orderly crowds Ll
huo has ever seen. There was no
unseomingly conduct at any time
during tho evening, everyone appar
notly realizing what an effort was
being put forth to mako tho even
ing a success.
That tho commltteo on food had
tremendously undorated tho appe
ties of tho fathers and mothers of
their young hopefuls was proven
when tho ice cream booth and tho'
hot-dog stand had to close their
doors early in tho evening and put
up a placard with the letters "N. S.
F,'" meaning not sufficient food.
And in proportion to tho rush on
those booths were tho efforts to
obtain admission to t,ho various side
shows. "A Hawaiian Night" was tho
most popular, and close second camo
the minstrel show. The Danco of
tho Nations appealed immensely aa
did the Punch and Judy show. The
mothers and fathers as well as the
children had all to tako a chance
on Hitting tho Nigger Baby and tho
hypnotism booth got its share of
tickets. Everybody was so anxious
to tako a chanco in tho fish pond,
that it was all sold out and closed
up ono hour after the carnival had
begun. Each and ovoryono seemed
anxious to learn from tho Gypsy
fortune teller what fato had ' In
store for him. And then for tho
peoplo who wero not lucky enough
to bo able to get Into any show
thoio was the jitnoy dance, which
grew moro and moro popular as
tho ovenlng wore on.
Tho school could hardly show too
much appreciation to tho children
who gave every ounce of their loy
alty and onergy to this project nor
to tho teachers who gave so much
of their time to tho direction and
management of it: ' Tho kindly .ef
forts of tho peoplo of tho community
who gavo of their tlmo and more
material things should not bo for
gotten. Over $500 was taken In and all
but about $50 of this Is clear prof
it, thanks to donations of lumber,
music, cakes and candles: This
money is to go for tho construction
of playground apparatus in tho now
Llhuo grammar school grounds.
Among tho passengers arriving
