Rico- Jr., chair man of Kauai's Republican commit too, has an nchlng arm and a lamo back this morning. And It's all due to tho election. Not that ho or any body elso got rough about tho con test. Ho simply tried to carry homo all tho wireless messages that ho received congratulating him, tho loy al Jtopubllcanfe and Kauai as a whole on tho wonderful Hepubllcan victory Saturday. That was enough to put anybody under tho weather. As soon as the joyful news was known, tho sheriff wirelessed tho re sults to tho Republican headquar ters In Honolulu. Before ho had time to get to tho office ho had an ans wer from Lawrence M. Judd, chair man of tho Republican territorial central committee. "Congratulations on Kauai's show ing," tho message read. Then tho chairman evidently re-read tho fig ures and ho got moro enthusiastic than over. "Heck with tho expens es," he said, "we'll just send those Kauai folks unother message." "Please extend to all loyal Repub licans congratulations on tho won derful victory," was tho second mes sage the sheriff received. And ever since has been a busy man congrat ulating and thanking nearly overy onebody ho met. For tho results show that almost everybody on tho Gar den Island Is a loyal Republican. About six minutes after tho Ho nolulu message arrived, Maut evi dently got the news. Harold Rice, who was chairman of the Republi can convention that nominated Har ry Baldwin as Hawaii's candidate', sent tho following wireless: "Con-j gratulations and appreciation on Kauai's fine showing." Chairman Rico thinks that the election wa3 an enormous success and ho wants to thank all Kauaians who helped In making it tho big gest' Republican victory in tho his tory of tho territory. SCARCITY OF JURORS FOR HANALEI ROBBERY CASE Considerable difficulty Is being ex perienced In tho fifth circuit court In obtaining jurors for tho caso known as tho Hanaloi robbery caso. Yesterday one panel was completely exhausted duo to tho attorney for tho defense using his preemptory challenges and also that many of tho prospective jurors were already convinced as to tho guilt or inno cenco of tho accused. After tho panel was exhausted. Judge Achi ordered that bystanders bo impaneled but even with those methods enough men who had not formed an opinion could not bo found to completo tho Jury. Today a now panel will bo called and it is hoped that tho jury can be picked so that the trial can bo carried on speedily. Tho charge against tho men Is first degreo robbery In connection with a holdup of a gambling house in Hanalei. Tho indictment that .charged them with robbing ono Leo 01 was thrown out of tho court, as tho court ruled that tho mon were in Jeopardy during tho first trial nnd therefore could not bo placed In Jeopardy again. MUSICAL TREAT IS IN STORE FOR KAUAIANS A raro treat is in store for tho music lovers of Kauai in tho prom ised visit of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Schwarz in tho near future.

Mrs. Albert Wilcox, who has been tho motif for numerous social ov onts during her month's visit to Kauai, returned Friday evening to Honolulu In order to cast her voto at tho election Saturday. L1HUE, Teachers Will Not Send Delegate To National Convention At a mooting of tho Hawaii Edu cation Association held at the Li huo school last Saturday at which ovcry school on this island was rep resented, it wan decided that it would bo too oxpenolvo an under taking for tho local association to send a delegate to tho national con vention to bo held in Boston next July. " An alternate howover, was elected, tho cholco falling on Mrs. K. C. Ahaua, principal of the Hulola school. Tlie territorial executive commit tee of) tho association, howover, has decided that a delegate at large be sent to Boston, and the islands of Maul and Hawaii have also elected alternates. The alternate from tho island which has tho largest percent age of teachers enrolled in tho Ha waii Education Association by May 1st will bo selected as tho delegate at large to go to Boston. It is hop ed at this convention, steps will bo taken that will eventually cnablo Hawaii to sccuro federal aid for special school activities. Kawalhau voters again demonstrat ed their refusal to follow the popu lar sentiment in returning an over whelming majority for Senator Bald win last Saturday, when this district gave McCandless 7G per cent of Mr. Baldwin's total, whereas tho Demo cratic candidate only received 35 per cent of Baldwin's Kauai total. Percentages for this district were as follows: Baldwin -19 per cent; McCandless 37 per cent; Kumulae 12 per cent; Mrs. Atcherly 2 per cent. J As tho polling progressed on Sat urday an overwhelming Baldwin vic tory wns predicted, judging from tho remarks of those who canio to voto early. About fifteen volunteers with automobiles labeled "Voto for Baldwin" wero out taking voters to and from tho polling place, and tho final returns for this district caused many of the volunteers to be lieve that they carried many fol lowers of McCandless to vote. i Tho voting was orderly and thoro was no rush, as local employers of voters all allowed them to voto during working hours to avoid a last minuto congestion. Counting was started promptly at 5 and was finished at 7. A largo crowd was there to hear the returns. j. .j. .. Tho Makees and Mill team of tho Kealla loaguo played an exhibition game hero on Sunday, tho champ ions winning by a largo score.

KAUAI, TERRITORY OF HAWAII, TUESDAY. MARCH 28, 1922 GOLDEN INVESTMENT An elderly lady once told mo that ono of tho - best Investments she ever made was a trip around tho world. She said that tho stock nev er depreciated, nor passed its di vidends, ns oven tho best gilt-edge Investments do at times. She was reaping tho bonoflts every day, in her reading, in her conversation with her friends or family, and in tlto personal interest she felt in dif ferent nationalities, all over the globe. It was an investment which would last as long as her memory lasted, nnd in case of any infirmi ty of old ago coming upon her, she would still realizo on this particular investment. This is an idea for you to think ov er, and sco if you do not wish to invest similarly, by taking advan tage of tho opportunity offered, to see tho beauties of Kauai, on an unusual trip. You know what it is: tho trip planned by tho Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co., on Saturday, April Sth, to go by tho good ship Kinau entirely around tho island. You may be fortunate enough lat er to sco other parts of the world, but you will travol far, before you will see any view which will equal those cliffs between Hanalei and Waimca; I doubt If you will over see n view which can surpass this in its sheer beauty, of coloring and niagificence. As it is necessary for obvious rea sons, to have the quota of 125 tick ets sold not merely spoken for, and then perhaps cancelled at tho last minute will YOU pleaso communi cate with Miss Helen Kimball AT ONCE. You may reach her by tele phone at tho residence of Chas. A. Rice, nnd she will call and deliver your ticket to you, or make Homo arrangement which will bo conveni ent, lor you. If ' you aro in doubt about any detail of tho trip as planned, ask Miss Kimball, and she will bo glad to explain.

Do not lose this opportunity to make a golden investment It may not. come your way again, and you will always remember this scene, if Jt Is once imprinted on tho photo graphic plato of your mind a glor ious picture of one of nature's great masterpieces.

Al though they had recently made -tlto ascent of Haloakala unfortunately, in a pouring rain, so they wero dis appointed in not seeing tho crater at all and had touted both Maui and Hawaii, thoy were unanimous in saying that Kauai surpassed both these islands, and Oahu as well. The god of weather smiled on them, and they had two perfect days, and tills fact, combined with good roads, comfortable cars provided by the Walmoa Stables, and kindly atten tions of Sam Pcahu (who provided thorn with mallo lels and music on their departure) lias made four good boosters for Kauai, wherever they may go. Dr. Sumner is. an amateur photo grapher of no small ability, and took many pictures witli which ho hopes to show his friends from "Mis souri" and olsewhere, what marvel ous views Kauai can furnish to vis itors. Maj. and Miss Livingston havo traveled extensively, and taken trips to tho Rocky mountains, and in Colorado and California, on horse back, and they were so enthusias tic over tho possibilities of having a trip of that kind here, that they may return ere long for this pur pose. Miss Helen Kimball, of tho Trav el Bureau of the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co. planned the trip for theso visitors, and hopes lo send many more people in tho future who will bo as enthusiastic boost ers for Kauai, ns this entire party bocanio during their all too short stay here. The travol bureau is a recent innovation of this company, and it is hoped that residents of the islands will take advantage of it, whenever thoy wish to plan trips to other' Islands than tho one on which thoy live. Miss Kimball will bo very glad to assist in any way possible, tlioso who wisli informa tion, or actual reservations for steamers, hotels or automobiles, if prospective tourists will communi cato with her, In care of tho main office of tho company in Honolulu. Teachers who wish to spend vaca tion time In taking trips aro espe cially invited to get in touch with Miss Kimball, and they wish to mako up parties, they may find it to their advantage to consult her about rates.

Election Says Sheriff Rice Commenting on tho chargo of Link .McCandless that Hho Republi can victory at Saturday's election was "bought," Shoriff William Henry Rico, manager of tho Republican campaign on Kauai, Indignantly de nied the charge.

Baldwin Polls Largest Vote In Island History Clem Gomes, the manager of tho Nawlllwlll branch of tho Wnlmoa Stables, established a reputation as an election prophet when ho pre dicted that Harry A. Baldwin would poll 1400 votes on Kauai. The Re publican candidate for delegato poll ed exactly 1412 votes on Kauai nnd Nllhau. McCandless, whom many claimed would carry the island was nearly ono thousand votes bohind with a total of 475. Kumalno polled 131, whllo tho best Mrs. Atcherly could do was twenty. Kilauea leads tho roll for Bald win with a record of OG per cent of tlie votes cast going to the Maul man. Makawell was second with a total of 92 percent. One of the surprises of the elec tion was tho voto polled by Baldwin in Kawalhau which has always been known as a McCandless stronghold. Ho defeated tho Democratic candi date by over 50 votes. This is the only district in which Baldwin fail ed to poll tho majority of tho votes cast. Baldwin polled the biggest vote over given a candidate for public office on Kauai.
