Death of William Goodness.
On last Sunday morning, William
Goodness, proprietor of the Rifnnark
Stables died at his home in Wailuku.
Mr. Goodness had been having inter
mittent spells for some months past,
and his decease was not entirely un
expected. Mr. Goodness has made the Islands
his home for the past 30 years, tho
most of which were spent on Maui.
When ho first came to Maui, he
worked at his trade of carpenter
and millwright, having put up some of
the first &uri.r miils on Maui and
Molokai. Afterwards he secured n
long lease on some crown lands in
Kula, and for many years was u
gaged in the cattle business, at one
time running two butcher bliops, one
in Wailuku and one in Lahaina. Some
years since he gave up the cattle
business and bought out the Bismark
Stables, which he ran to the time of
his death. -
Mr. Goodness was a man of strong
and positive character, and was "one
of God's noblest works, au honest
man". Generous, brave and kindly,
he never stooped to a mean action,
and deservedly stood high among his
A strong and steadfast friendship
existed between him and his majesty,
the late King Kalakoua, of whom he
always spoke in the kindliest terms.
The funeral services were conduct
ed at the residence, Rev. W. Ault
officiating, and the remains were
interred at the Wailuku cemetery
surrounded by a large concourse of
Maui Athletic Association.
A called meeting was held at the
Wailuku court house on Thursday
evening for the purpose of organizing
an athletic association for the Is
land of Maui.
L. M. Baldwin was elected presi-
sident and 6. B. Sehrader. secretary.
W. II. Cormvell, Jr. who was one of
the prime mover? in the organization
of the association, briefly stated
that the object of tho meeting was
to organize an athletic club to play
baseball, polo, tennis and general
track athletics, and suggested the
appointment of committees to secure
suitable ground and to arrange for
financing the association.
After formal'y resolving to initiate
the association, it - was given the
name of i'TJie Maui Athletic Associa
tion," Mr., Ault was elected vice pre
sident, and Gv B. Robertson treas
urer. W. H. Cormvell, Jr. W. R.

Tunnelling Hateakala F-ot Water.
The News is indebted to Mr. Carl
Wtildeyer, an experienced California
gravel miner, for some very interest
ing notes relative to the possibility of
developing water for the use cf cat
tle ranches by tunnelling into the
sides of Ilaleakala.
At the request of Dr. Raymond,
Mr. Waldeyer recently spent several
days at Kahikinui Ranche, examining
the system of tunnels already inaug
urated. Some water has been de
veloped, but it is too soon yet to tell
whether the water is sipage from
the recent heavy r;vin, or whether
it Is a permanent flow.
Mr. WaUleyor however states from
his observation th::t he feels convinced
that there are layers of impervious
strata near enough the surface to
be reached by an intelligent con
struction of lateral tunnels. The
water carried by these s'.rata never
comes to the surface, but finds its
way the sea underground. Just how
a long dry spell would affect these
subterranean streams is a problem
which must be solved by tho test of
actual experiment, but Mr. Walde
yer is inclined to the belief, from his
ecent observations, that permanent
water can be obtained in limited
quantities, which would however be
amply suflicientjfor stock purposes.
Dr. Raymond deserves credit for
his experiments in rfjiis direction and
if they prove successful, which Mr.
Waldeyer does not seens to doubt.
it will be only a question of time till
the side of lfaleakala will be honey
combed with water bearing tunnels.
These tunue'.a will have to be so lo
cated as to tap the surface of im
pervious strata, which carry per
manent water, and a system of cross
tunnels run so as catch all the water
of the strata. This may be only a
small amount in each tunnel, but it
would require only a permanent flow
of a few miners' inches of water to
amply supply a stock ranche.
Most of tho ranches, notably Ka
hikinui, extended from top of Halea
kala to the sea, and whilo the best
pasturage is high up on the moun
tain side, stock have to travel down
to near sea level for water. A suc
cessful solution of the tunnel pre
position will mean thousands of dol
lars to the stock raisers and much is
luped from the experiments being
made by Dt. Raymond.
Other stock raisers, notably Colo
nel Corn well, have employed Mr.
Waldeyer to expert their ranches
with a view of develop water, and
great interest is felt in the results.
John T. Aluli Dead.
News was received by wireless
telegraph on Monday that Mr. John
Ty Aluli who had gone to Honolulu
for ntcdiul treatment, died there on
Sunday, ovening. of heart disease.
Mr.' Aluli was a prominent Hawa
iian merchant, proptietor the Kalei
Store on Market' street. He went
to Honolulu threo weeks since for
medical treatment, accompanied by
his wife, and only last week he wrote
to friends here that he was improv
ing and that he expected to return
Mr. Aluii was a distinguished type
of all that is best and highest in the
Hawaiian race, and was universally
esteemed and respected by the com
munity at large. The remains were
interred in Honolulu.

Noah Aluli, a bright young man who
is now attending the law depart
ment of the Ann Arbor University
