The song and tableau, tho Three Kings of the Orient, was by far tho best received of them all. The trio number which was sung by tho three kings was an old Christmas carol, "Wo Three Kings of Orient Are." This song was rendered by Simeon Dlas, Henry Malina, and John Maka riani, who played tho three kings, was1' greatly enhanced by the won derful costumes worn by the sirg ers. Tho fourth tableau portrayed tho shephords awaking and following the star of Bethlehem. This was follow ed by a number by the cantata chor us. Tho sixth tableau was the. Madoii' na nnd child, and a solo "Sleep My Jesu Sleep," was sung by Elinor Dale during this number. Mrs. Ma bel Jensen made a very striking Madonna. The manger scene with Mary and Joseph and three little cherubs around the manger was the seventh tableau, while tho Adoration, the last tableu made the most beautiful picture of them all. Too much credit cannot bo given tho committeo which was headed by Miss Edith Rico and Miss Edith Hanson, for the wonderful success of the Christmas tableau. The program committee for the tableau was Mrs. H. D. Sloggett, Miss Edith Hanson, Mrs. Frank Crawford, Mrs. Alma Rogers and Rev. It. W. Bayless.

Hauck Speak on Education; Principal F. J. Dollinger Talks on School Problems Tho Kauai Chamber of Commerce held Its regular meeting at tho Tip Top Cafe last Thursday evening and the biggest turnout of the year mark ed tho last meeting in 1922. Over 90 members turned out to hear Prof. A. A. Hauck, president of Punahou school, and F. J Doll inger, of Kauai high school, and they wero rewarded by hearing two of the most Interesting addresses that have boon delivered before the chamber this year. President Hauck was the first speaker and he took for his subject "Education." He told tho chamber that tho duties of present day edu cation Inf preparing tho children for the future wero fourfold. The first was to educate them along physical lines, so that their bodies would be prepared to take up the struggle when they went out into the world. The second duty was to give them a complete working knowledge of the English language so that In the future their thinking and reading would bo in that language, Tho third duty was to develop a civic attitude among the children so that when they became of age they would perform their duties as citizens in an intelligent manner; and the fourth was to teach them to earn a living. He then told tho chamber that It was a good sign for the future of education when bodies similar to the chamber wero taking an Inter est in it. President HaucU's address was de livered in an unusually Interesting manner and his words made a dis tinct impression on the members. F. J. Dollinger, who followed Mr. Hauck, then told what Is being done at the Kauai high school along developing the local children. Mr. Dollinger opened his talk with an invitation to the members of the chamber to visit tho high school and inspect it so as to receive first Kapaa Water Supply Increased Next Year Kapaa and Wuilua residents who in the past have been forced to suffer temporary shortages in their water supply, due to tho heavy de mand for water In the early morn ings and evenings, will no doubt bo interested in the announcement of Supervisor Fred Mcndcs that the work of developing a supply of wat er, sufficient to meet tho needs of Kawalhau, is expected to start early next year. Plans for the work havo already been submitted to th Department of Public Works In Honolulu and bids will probably bo called for soon. Kapaa and iWallua aro at present supplied with only ono line, and Walpoull and Wailua residents aro always complaining of empty pipes, tho demand from those nt the head of the line taking all the water dur ing certain periods of tho day. The present plans for the now water system call for two lines lead ing from tho same source, ono lino for Kapaa users and nnother for Waipauli and Wailua, thus insuring all residents with an adequate sup ply. A third line will probably bo built to supply the Hawaiian Can neries Co., as tho pineapple cannery during tho height of tho canning season in the summer months re quires an enormous quantity of wat er ,for uso in connection with their canning operations. For those who may bollevo that three lines' leading from tho same source of supply might tend to exhaust tho supply or at least to diminish it, Supervisor Meudes states that tho present supply avail able all the year around, is suffici ent to eupply a district with three times the present population of Ka walhau. Tho last legislature appropriated $C0,000 for tho development of an adequate water supply for Kapaa. COMMERCE BIG MEEI6 OF YEAR hand knowledge as to what Is being done. Ho then bocamo specific where President Hauck had been general, and told that the school was work ing along a fourfold plan. The first plan was that tho nchool was preparing tho scholars who In tended to take up collego courses, for that work In Its academic de partment. The second plan was to develop the local girls, who prefer red that course along- the linos of domestic science and domestic art. This course prepared them as houso wives and home builders. The third plan wus to develop boys industrially and technically, with a four year manual training course. Tho fourth plan was to develop girls and boys for n commercial career with a four year commercial course. Mr. Dolllnger's talk gave many members of the chamber a new light on tho work that has been done at the high school and many favorable comments were heard from various members. At the business session, which followed tho banquet, a motion was introduced to have tho chair ap point a committee to devise a suit able memorial to tho late J. M. Lyd gate. An amendment was added to tho first motion that the board of supervisors bo petitioned by tho chamber to change the name of Wal lua Park to J. M. Lydgato Park as a memorial to Mr. Lydgate, as it was thru his efforts that this park was obtained for the public of Ka uai. Both the motion and tho amend nient passed unanimously. Rev, R. W. Bayless, who was the delegate to tho recent civic convon tion in Honolulu from tho Kauai Chamber of Commerce, rendered an Interesting report on tho convention. Jack Horner gavo as part of tho entertninincnt, two solos that wero well received. Noll Molor entertain ed at tho piano between tho courses. PERSONALS G. P.

J Political Plot Puzzles Public KAWAIHAU AFTER LADS SAID TO CARLOS LONG'S SCALP BE Nevor let It be said that politicians nre quiet In Kawalhau, as It Is al ways opan season In that district The latest plot brewing that dls trlct Is of Island wide interest, for it hinges on tho very Important po sltlons of Kauai tax assessor, tho deputy tax assessor for Kawalhau and the district magistrate of Wat moa. Tho first Btep In the action re gards tho appointment of tho de puty tax assessor for Kawalhau, who will ho appointed by Carlos Long, tnx assessor for tho Island. The Kawalhau precinct club has en dorsed K. MaBunaga for the posi tion, and It Is understood that ac cording to political custom It is ne cessary for tho candidate for a dls trlct office to be endorsed by tho precinct club. The rumor has gone abroad that Long does not Intend to appoint Masaunaga, but that Hopii, the oth er candidate, will be his selection. Kawalhau Republicans nre not slow in stating that if Long does so they will go out after his scalp, as he Is a Democratic holdover in the of fico as tax assessor and that a good Republican should replace him. It is rather hard to seo where tho district Magistrate of Walmea comes in at first glance, but this comes on another angle. Judge Hoggaard Is a good Republican, but ho is in danger of losing his position, fol lowing along the policy of Chief Justice Peters In appointing Ha wallans to the district courts, There fore the Kawalhau politicians figure that If the judge is removed it might not be a bad idea to remove tho Democratic holdover in the tnx assessor job and replace him with somo good Republican, say Judge Hofgaard, for instance. Tho Kawalhau men claim that Deputy Sheriff Crowell Is bo hind tho movement to removo Judge Hofgaard, although Crowell strenu ously denies this. uroweii is deputy tax assessor ns well as deputy sheriff and it is claimed that If Horgaard succeeds Long that Crowell will hold only ono position jjfter tho appointment. ong is now registered as a Re licun, but tho Information is giv Oft- out from Kawalhau that ho was appointed under a Democratic admin Istrntlon and that ho also has been a candidate' for office on tho Demo cratic ticket. In tho meantime tho story has spread all over tho Island and ninny nnd various conjectures aro being madfc as to tho final outcome. How over, n tno affair should fall to come to a head, thero Is no doubt that Kawalhau will have a now sensation to spring tho following week. INMATES OF MAHELONA HOSPITAL ENJOY XMAS Thru tho kindness of many good friends of tho Maholona Memorial hospital, the Inmates of that histi tution had an enjoyable Christmas with a treo .appropriate exercises and music and everything that goes to make tho Yuletldo a time of Joy For sovoral days past, cars havo been arriving at tho hospital, de positing packages and bundles that were destined to, make those hearts glad.

Din ner Bell, Golden Spray and Sky Boy will meet In the mile .and these three - horses havo the rail birds scratching their heads trying to fig ure tho winner. There certainly can bo no shortage of stop-watches on tho island, as whenever the horse from the enemy camp goes out for a work all the stable boys, trainers and Jockeys for tho other horses appear with watches and clocks him as he takes his spin around tho track and then watches aro compared and hnn.la wag over tho result. Old Golden Spray Is said to bo due for a come back as he flashed tho mile in good stylo yesterday. Both Dinner Bell and Sky Boy look good and no doubt they will have their back ers when tho big race conies off. Tho other race that is causing comment is tho five-eighths of a mile with Silver Dust, Fireman, Din ner Bell and Kapaa Girl as tho en tries. The first contenders were on ly Silver Dust and Fireman, but tho nddltion of Dinner Bell and Kapaa Girl to tho entries gives the race a new angle. Silver Dust took tho measure of Fireman tho last tlmo they met, but Fireman's backers are looking for tho Kapaa horses to lead tho Fernundez mare, while tho Japanese racing fans are backing Dinner Bell to finish abend of them both.
