The Maui tax appeal court held a

Wednesday in the matter cf the tax

plantation had reported its taxable
property at a little over a million
dollars. The tax assessor raised the
assessment to somewhere near three
million dollars. The tax appeal court
found that the proper figures are two

lars. It is understood that the plan-

The above is the title of a chatty
and quite readable book just pub
lished by Dr. E. S. Goodhue, for
several years a resident and Govern
ment physician at Wailuku, Maui.
This book is the forerunner of two
other books. "Within Hawaiian
Ueefs", and "Hawaii First-', which
will be published in sequence. The
three books were written to be
published in one volume, but the
volume would have beou s i largo aud
the three titles were, so diverse that
tho author concluded to publish in
three volumes. The two succeeding
volumes will probably . be publijdied
in a serial magazine before appear
ing i:: b.xik form. "
This book is rather difficult to
classify, and may be best described
as an analytical sketch book of per
sonal observation. Written in a
spirit of cynical but good natured
rai'lefy, the doctor, trik to his pro
fessional training, boldly uses his
lancet, laying bare tho healthly spots
so that tho reader may see the veins,
nerves and minute blood vessels of
the inuer life of the Islands, and
remoreselessly plunging his scalpel
into all manners of rottenness, ex
posing the putridity of tho seamy
side of Hawaiian life.
The style of the book is rather
diffuse, both as to matter and man
ner, and without being hurried, the
reader is treated to a curious com
pound of religion, history, biography
and personal reminiscences, much
of which is apropos of the author
rather than of Hawaii. But it is
all interesting reading, nevertheless.
The diction is admirable for its
purity and precision, and some of
the utterances aro quito strikingly
figurative, an apt illustration of
which will be found in tho following
quotation, relative to what induce
ments are offered to a farmer:
'.'He will find that the old earth,
as if gratified at being shown some
intelligent attention by a blue-eyed
white man, will yield him all her
fruits with a lavish breast."
His chapters on Leprosy, Coffee,
Tho Physician in Hawaii, The Mis
sionaries anil President Dole are well
The book is profusely .illustrated,
among other sketches being one of
Wailuku taken from a photograph,
which gives a quite correct view of
the town and of Iao Valley.
A Surprised Manager.
On Thursday evening about eight
o'clock, Manager Lowrie was sitting
on his lanai enjoying his post pran
dial cigar. Through the gloom the
forms of sometwenty men appeared,
Visions of a new strike flitted through
his brain, when ho recognized that
the cowJ was composed entirely
of employees on the H. C. & S Co.,
and of the Kahului Railroad Co.
"Well, what is the matter now?
enquired the manager.
Superintendent Filler of the K. R.
R. Col acted as snoKesmun and ex
plained that the employees of the
Plantation and the R. R. Co. had,
as a token of their esteem, united to
present Mr. Lowrie and his wife
with o solid silver tray in commemo
ration of their recent silver wedding.
The tray which is a very largo one,
is a magnificient affair in solid silver,
in tho center of which in engraved
in large letters "ALOHA" and then
an Inscripttion stating that It was
presented by tho employees of tha
H. C. and S. Co and Kahului R. R.
to Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Lovrie on the
occasion of their silver wedding,
with the dates 1875 and 1UU0.
The surprise was a genuine one,
and the speech of presentation was
feelingly and touchingly responded
to by the surprised and happy re
cipients, Paia Notes.
Pala Plantation mill shut down
last Saturday for the season, with
a record of nearly SOW) tons.
The concert given for the benefit
of the Paia Church on Saturday was
quite a success, artistically and
financially. Mr. S. Kamakaia Mrs.
Saflery and Mioses Rogers, Pihi
and Kekipl, and the Sunday School
furnished tho music. Anther enter
tainment will begiven nt the same
place and for the same purpose on
Friday, August 17. .
Mr. W. G. Scott was married to
Miss Virginia' Freitas at Paia last

performing tho ceremony. Mr.

Miss Ida Freitas was bridesmaid.
10 TO i
The so ie-ty reporter of the News
dropped into the sanctum the other
day, and with some hesitation an
nounced that he had work "d up some
stulT for this issue of the paper.
" So? What is it?" benignantly en
quired the 'Whole Thing.
"Weil, you see," replied the S. R.,
"there has been con.-:ilerablo talk
about l'i to 1, and I've beeu inter
viewing some of the prominent peo
ple ou Maui as to their understanding
.if what it really means."
"I see;" observed the W. T. ; "tejl
us about it."
"Weil, t;h: first man I asked about
it was Judge Kepoil-ai . When J ask
ed him the question, a pained look
came over his face, but ho brighten
ed up in a moment and .vid that it
was necessary to take a trip to the
States in order to fully understand
that 1) to I simply means that there
are sixteen republicans to one dem
ocrat in tho United States.
"Then I asked Manager Lowrie
about it and lie said that as far as he
had been able to look into the matter,
it meant sixteen tons of sugar to 1
acre of land.
"Manager Wells, upon being in
terviewed, said that his understand
ing of it was that it meant sixteen
dollars for one month's labor on the
"Manager Diekins of Lovejoy's es
tablishment said that 1(5 to 1 would
command a very choice brand, but
that he had just received a shipment
at 13 to 1 that was giving very good
satisfaction to thirsty consumers.
"Dr. Boote, thp popular dentist of
Wailuku, said that sweet 16 to 1
was just the right figure, in case he
happened to be the happy one.
"Supt. Filler, of Kahului, stated
that 10 to 1 is the number of jobs a
live Kahului man has to hold down at
one time iu the sugar shipping sea
son, if he expects to be considered
up, to date. ,
"Attorney Kaneakua, who has
been looking over the political situa
tion observed that 10 to 1 represents
the ratio of legislative candidates on
Maui, to the legislative oflices to be
filled at the next election." "
