Editor Maui News:
On reading in the News of the
social gatherings, liiaus, etc., it
would seem that tho people .of Maui
are a sociable folk. But tho Demon
of Doubt still enters and asks, "How
much of that social feeling is dictat
ed by business rivalry, and how much
by genuine good feeling, peaco on
earth and good will to all?
Scotland's poet, whose song on the
reunion of long parted friends is still
popular all round the world, puts it
in the business form:
As surely you will be your pint stoup
So surely I'll be mine;
We'll drink a eup of kindness yet
To the days of Auld Lang, Syne
That's business, drink for drink,
dance for dance, luau for luau, even
business cropped out in the welcome
to long absent friends. "Maui no

Death of David Center.
The distressing news came by tho
Claudine, of the death of David Cen
ter on Wednesday afternoon at Hono
lulu. He was taken to Honolulu on
last Saturday's Claudine, and stood
the trip quite well.
On his arrival ho was taken to
the Queen's Hospital, and Dr. Wood
took charge of the case, assisted by
Dr. Herbert and Dr. Armitage.
On Monday morning a successful
preliminary operation was perform
ed, but ho was deemed too weak to
stand the final operation, which
was postponed to Wednesday morn
ing. On YJedncsday morning it was
decided to further postpone the
. His death occurred unexpectedly
on Wednesday afternoon, so that it
was impossible to obtain particulars
as to the immediate cause.
Mr. Center was admittedly one of
tho best plantation managers or. the
Islands, and his loss will bo keemly
felt by the community at largo as
well as by his many friend and his
Our Honolulu Letter.
New Years came in with a boom
in Honolulu. The old year was
watched out and the new one in in
hundreds of houses and by a large
concourse in Central Union Church.
A program of music prayer and dis
course was carried out from 9 p. m.
to 12 m. tho last number being car
ried out amid the tooting of hours
and the explosion of bombs. Rev
Mr. Wetiwelt, formerly pastor of the
foreign Congregational Church of
Wailuku delivered the principal dis
course. He i3 now assistant pastor
of Kawaiahao Church.
New Year's day was kept in vari
ous waj's according to the tastes of
tho individual. Races, luaus, trips
to tho country etc., abounded. The
electric cars up Pacific Heights
wero crowded all day long.
The weather has been lovely for
the past week, cool and pleasant.
The thermometer registered 56 in
town one or two mornings.
Messrs. C. W. Baldwin and S. Ke
liinoi are both in Honolulu engaged
in preparing their reports of the
school of Hawaii and Maui for the
use of the coming legislature.
Miss Kennedy late book-keeper of
Paia Plantation Store has accepted
a similar position with the Honolulu
Market Company the opposition to
the Metropolitan Meat Company.
Tho starting of this new Market has
caused great joy to housekeepers,
who now have a choice of markets
and the benefit of the competition.
The rapid transit seems now to be
in a fair way to get started. The
tracks are built from Punahou north
nearly to the center of town and the
power house approaching com pic
tion. It will be a great relief to the
travelling public when the line is in
working order. It is not quite com
fortable to drive down a narrow
street with a two foot trench taking
up the middle third and just, room
for a carriage track on either side.
The Superintendent of Public Works
has interfered and insists now on
their completing one block before
they begin on another.
The Automobile building is also ap
preaching completion and the com
pany only wait for that event to pre
cipital thirty houseless carriages on
to the streets of the city. Then look
out for runaways and smash ups
When the automobiles and electric
cars both get to going tho nervous
horse will have no chance at all. The
streets of Honolulu are now congest
ed far beyond tho point of comfort,
what will it bo with these additions ?
A dozen of the main streets ought
to be widened, and tli3 street cars
and drays banished from Fort street,
January 2nd seems to take the
place of the first of May of the
States as moving day. Vans of
household goods aro met in the
streets at every point and every
other man you meet has an anxious
care worn look as though he had
been trying to fit joints of old stove
Trade is dull of course as every one
has exhausted his money and credit
on Christinas and New Year,
A fine polo club has been establish
ed in Honolulu the leading spirits are
Ed. Damon, Will Dickey, Alfred Car
ter and John Flenning. They have
already played two sets on the
grounds of Mr. S. M. Damon at Mo
aualua. Enthusiasm in this direction
is growing and Maui polo horj.es
ought to command a good price.

house, occupied by some of the plan

io went round to investigate the
