IIL MA 1 Estray Situation Grows Serious IMPOUNDED CATTLE IN KAPAA BELONG TO POLICE OFFICER The estruy situation In the Ka walhau district which without doubt la the worst on the Island in this regard took on a new and serious an gle last week for at the behest of a certain citizen of Kapaa two avi mals a cow and a calf were im pounded which according to the citizen had been trespassing on his property for several nights and had destroyed a .portion of his garden. When the investigation in regard to the ownership of the cattle wn'.i niado It was found that they were the property of John llano, deputy bheriff of the Kawalhau district. This gives the serious aspect to tlio case for it Is certain that no enforcement of the law can be -expected in the Kawalhau district when the very person is sworn to ei'force the law Is one of the offend ers, for according to the statement of the citizen that Impounded the animals, they had bothered him on several different occasions which would make It appear that it was not accidental. Another, phase of the situation Is reported by another citizen of Ka paa is . the fact that nearly all the horses that are estray on the road arc the property of one person a Chinese rice grower. Another citi zen reports that the situation Is such in Kawalhau that it is cheap er to pay impounding fees when the cattle happen to be rounded up than It is to pay pasturage. WILL NOT APPOINT DEPUTY ASSESSOR UNTIL JANUARY 1ST According to latest reports from .returning delegates to tho recent Re publican convention in Honolulu, the appointment of a deputy tax assessor for Kawalhau has been postponed un til January 1. 192.1. II. T. Barclay, present incumbent, who sent in his resignation to Carlos A Long, Kauai tax assessor, lo take effect on Aug ust 1, was requested to reconsider his nction and has agreed to hold office until January 1st. Just what is behind this new turn of affairs is rot certain, but It looks very much like another master political stroke to preserve so called party harmony, at least until after the November elections. According to one politician, Carlos A. Long, presented tho name of N. K. IIoo pli to A. Lewis Jr., territorial treas urer, for approval, but Mr. Lewis also has been presented by the sup porters of Masunaga with a peti tion signed by the business Inter ests and a majority of the Kawal hau voters, together with tho unani mous endorsement of tho executive committee of the Kawalhau pre cinct club.

Filipino Driver Hits Pedestrian FAILS TO RENDER ANY AID TO THE INJURED MAN A Filipino, Gregorlo Bernandos, was brought Into the district court who either thru an oversight or nog llgenco on the part of tho county attorney was fined $25 for an of fense for which ho should have nt least been sent to jail for a year. Early last Friday morning John Malala, an employee of Grovo Farm whose duties It Is to light tho tire In. the boiler at the plantation shop was coming to work from Puhl. Ho noticed a car coming behind him and got down Into the ditch to allow It to pass but nevertheless the driver either by Intentionally" or thru careless driving struck him down and dragged him nearly one hundred feet. The driver kept on going never stopping to Wee' if the man was Injured or killed. The affair was reported to the police and a clover bit of detect ive work on the part, of Enoka Lovcll among the machines at the landing found the guilty party who was brought to court beforo Judge Hjorth. It, was thought by tho po lice that the Filipino would be charged with the crime of striking a pedestrian and driving off and leaving him which Is n much more serious offense than heedless driv ing. Tho county attorney's office brought In the charge of heedless driving for which the offender was fined $25 and his license suspend ed for a year, but ho was not charged with the graver offense. It Is not known whether tho coiin ty attorney's office meant to only bring our charge against tho man but it Is certnln that any person who would hit a pedestrian and then drive off and- leavo hi in does not deserve any consideration from the county attorney's office or from any one else. Tho penalty for a driver to fail to -give assistance to a person struck by his car Is not more than two yoars In jail or one thousand dol lars fine, or both. ESTRAY HORSE ON ROAD CAUSES BAD WRECK An estray horse caused an accid dent last night on the hill on the Hauamnulu side of the Wailua flats that thru somo miracle did not cause tho death or serious Injury to tho persons involved. Lester Alexander and Goldinc Gomes, employees of tho U. S. En gineers at the breakwater were re turning from a visit to tholr homes in the Kawalhau district In a Nash owned by Alexander. There had been a slight rain and the road was very slippery. According to Alex ander and Gomes, as they came up the hill u horse crossed In front of the car, and In order to avoid the horse Alexander applied the brakes which caused him to skid off the road and overturn. He was pinned by tho steering wheel but Gomes who was not caught by tho car was able to free him, Fortunately both men were uninjured. The car was badly smashed and part of tho body being ruined. Llhue district has been unusually free from estray animals on tho roads and it is unfortunate that ac cident should occur where It did. No doubt the knowledge that there was llttlo or no animals on tho road in tho Llhuo district causes tho drivers to bo less vigilant than they would bo where the cstrays are more common. HOW ABOUT IT, AUTO DRIVERS? The new traffic ordinance calls for diffusing lenses on all cars and that ordinance Is now in effect. Any num ber of motorists have niado no ef fort to secure lenses for tholr cars which sooner or later is ijolng to cause them considerable trouble. The law Is very definite on tho subject and a set of louses costs about $5, while most of the judges on the Is land are liable to mako tho flue dou ble that. Hawaiian Tenor Pleases Large Kauai Audience WONDERFUL VOICE OF THE HAWAIIAN BOY THRILLS AUDIENCES Tandy Mackenzie's concert at the Tip Top theater last Saturday even ing far exceeded any of the expecta tions of even his devoted admirers as he was In especially fine voice. He only attempted one number from grand opera, Recondlta Armor lna from La Tosca, and from the manner that ho handled this number considerable regret was expressed by his hearers that he did not give them more. He then contented himself with numbers more understandable to the layman and his lyric work pleased the audience to an unusual degree. A well selected program that con tained numbers with real melodies made tho concedt exceedingly enjoy able. But when he reached the Hawaiian portion of his program it could be seen that here was his forte, for ho sang them as only a sou of Hawaii can sing them and his audience kept clamoring for more. His concert at Makawell was a re petition of his success at Llhue, his program following along almost sim ilar lines. Ho again opened with an operatic number from La Tosca, this time being Lucevan le Slelle, and then Bwung into lyric numbers and finished with Hawaiian. He was oven better received at Makawell than at Lihuo, . the audience being more enthusiastic. Tonight's concert at Kilauea will bo welcomed by those who wero un able to hear him at Llhuo on Sat urday evening, and many who have expressed a deslro to hear him again in concert.

Juan Balkls a Filipino charged with larceny in the second degree, being accused of stealing $17 from a Jap anese family in Lihuc was convict ed on circumstantial evidence and sentenced to a year in jail. Tho evi dence against him was purely cir cumstantial. It seems that on Juno 25th some ono entered the home of the Japaneso family and stolo $17 and the key to padlock. Tho case was reported to the police but no tangible clues coud be found. Last week the house was a gain entered, this time by Bal kls who had taken the trouble beforo doing so to remove his cloth ing and cover his body with grease. He left his clothes in tho chicken house. On entering the house he woke tho head of the family who grap pled with him. He did manage to give Balkls a hard blow on the head before he" escvaped. Balkls did not have an opportunity to re trieve his clothes from the chicken house. Tho case was reported to the po lice who quickly rounded up Bal kls and when the clothes that he bad left behind were searched a key that was identified by tho Jap anese couple as being their proper ty. It was on this evidenco that Balkls was convicted. Balkls was held on a charge of burglary for tho grand Jury by Judge Hjorth this morning. This chargo comes from the second attempt nt housebreaking which resulted in his capture. He had just been released from jail on a uarccny charge and will now return to serve a year.
