Saturday, JANUARY 19,
Two ladies, actuated doubtless by noblo impulses, have ini
liuU'd a temporarce crusade in Honolulu, and the News propose:
to take right hold vit.li them and help the good -work along. Bu
we shall work along different line. There should be a larger liberty
allowed in the establishment of saloons at convenient points on the
Islands. And the ritPculous
saloons should be swept out of existence. The scarcity of saloons
and the "loni dry spells" which that scarcity causes really leads
to more excesses in drink than would plenty of saloons convenient

of course he invites his friends, and natural results follow. . Yet
we propose to inaugurate a temperance movement on Maui, bi;
wo will go about it in a sensible and effective way.

A Hopeless Search for Max Adeler
Mr. Charles Hebe r Clark, one of
America's foremost writers on in
dustrial affairs, is very much asham
ed of Max Adeler. Twenty years
ago Max Adeler was in the heyday
of his popularity as a humorist, and
there are now many middleaged
men who pull down from dusty shelves
their dog-eared comes of Random
.Shots' and Out of the Hurly-Burly,
and, as they chuckle over the old
familiar sketches, wonder what has
become of Max. "He must be dead,'
they sigh; "what a pity!"
But he isn't. When Mr. Charles
Heber Clark assumed the pseudonym
of "Max Adeler it was at a time
.when a man who wrote was not sub'
jected to the searchlight of public
curiosity. He wrote largely for his
own amusement, and was modest in
his claim to recognition. But mor
serious work presented itself, and
he threw aside the cap and bells. He
became engrossed in trado develop
ment as applied to the industrial
growth of the country. In time he
became a recognized authority, and
as his fame grew in this direction he
desired more and more to shake from
the coat-tails of his new dignity the
.persistent tugs given to them by
Max Adeler. Doctor Jekyll-Clark
loathed Mr. Hyde-Adcler. ,
. Gradually tho fame of Charles
Hebcr Clark grew, and this pleased
Mr. Clark very much indeed. One
could not offend lum more than to
refer to the humorous writings of
'the discredited Adeler. , He loathed
them with a hatred, that was" terr
ble to see.
One day there wiandqred into hi
omce two cusreputaoie looking repre
sentatives of the theatrical profes
Eioii. They said they were a ske'tc
team hi search of a new act, with
neat song and dance and lots of side
walk conversation. In idiomatic
language, almost unintelligible to Mr,
Clark's secretary, they explaiue
that they had come across a book
called Paudoin Shots, by Max Adeler
and they had been told Mr. Clark-
had written it. .
"lies the guy we're lookin' fer,
said the spokesman of the team. 'He
can write us the sort o! stuff that'll
k'll 'em dead. If it's tho right -ort
we'll pay him good."
It took the secretary fifteen mi
utes to convince the callers that they
were in error, and that it was a case
of mistaken idenity. Knowing Mr.
Clark's antipathy toward the luck-
tess Adelcr, this young man refrained
om mentioning the visit. Mr. Clark
doesn't know about it to this day. .
