On Monday evening the adjourned
meeting of the Maui Athletic Asso-
ciafion was held at the court house
to hear the report of the commit lee
on bylaws and on grounds.
The committee presented a set. of
bylaws whichwere adopted, and which
among cither things provide that the
initiation fee shall be 2.."i() per month
and fifty cents a month membership
As to grounds, the onuvnitlee rv
p tried that they had i.i tor viewed
Manager Wells of the Wailuku Plan
tation, and I hat he had generously
oTered to rive them a four vein-
lease rent free on a tract on the
Wailice side of Main street, makai
of Judge Kalua's residence.
On Tliursd.iy, the committee met
with Mr. Wells on the grounds of the
proposed site, and n very eligible lot
six hundi'ed feet squat c was agreed.
The ground is a'rnost level, and
w'non plough jd and rolloJ vvl make
first class grounds for base ball,
polo, lawn tennis and general track
and field athletics. Yesterdav ac
tive work was begun on the
grounds, and as soon as possible
they will be put into proper
condition. Subscriptions papers
have already been" sent out, and the
committee are meeting a generous
response. There is no doubt but that
the) e will bo a largo membership on
all adjacent parts of the Island.
The Maui Athletic Association is
now an assured success, thanks to
the energy of its originators and the
generous action on the part of Man
ager Wells, who certainly deserves
an honorary life membership.
The association will hold its regular
meetings on the first Monday of each
minthatT p. rn., and special meet
ings at the call of the president.
Two Fires nt Pnla.
At about 11 150 on Monday night,
a fire broke out in the cane at Ka
heka, Paia, and before the flames
could be extinguished ub iut ten acres
of ripo cano had been burned over.
As the cane will at once be cut and
ground, the loss will be nominal.
Sime rssert that the (ire Was set out
by the Porto Rieans, but this is ex
tremely improbable, and the real
origin of the lire is unknown.
At about half past eight o'clock on
Wednesday morning, the barn and
stable at the residence of Mar.ager
Lindsay at Paia was totally destroy
ed by tire. The lire originated in
the house of a Japanese who lived
alongside of tho barn. His house
caught lire while lie was cooking,
and ignited the barn adjoining. The
alarm was at once given and in a
short time a large number of la
borers and others gathered at the
scene. Hie barn was torn down
while burning, and water from two
faucets was used t.i extinguish the
flames. A nifmbcr of men mounted
the roof of Manager Linsays resi
dence, about seventy feet distant,
and by a liberal use of water pre
vented the dwelling from catching on
fire. In the meantime a Babcock
fire extinguisher was brought from
the Paia store, and the fire was soon
extinguished, notwithstanding which
ths barn was however totally des

Honolulu at a Glance.
Three years ago Honolulu was a
chrysalis, - today it Is a butterfly.
This is a trite metapher, but it falls
short of describing the metamor
phosis which has taken place. The
Judd Building was the1 only indication
m !13 of tho era of building which
was to begin in Honolulu. Today,
Honolulu is a rustling little metrop
olis, with dozens of large, substantial
business blo.-ks in course of ere' tion
A' present th" principal lt:sincs
h "uses cluster on Fort direct, wMii
is narrow, crooked and altogethe;
il'iiit for a business street. Rents
are exorbitantly high, and it is a safe
prediction that in a few years, keen
competition, which will demand lower
rents, will cause an exodus from
Fort street, to Alakea or some of
the wider streets where rents are
cheaper, and the business of the town
will shift from For!, street, just as in
San Francisco it once shifted from
Kearney and Montgomery streets to
eheapcr.locahiies on Market street,
end for the same reason is again
shifting from Market street to the
side street toward the western ad
dition. While there )s no linq of business
in Honolulu which at present can be
fairly be said to be overdone, still
competition is beginning to make it
self keenly felt, and the time is sure
ly coming when the ''survival of the
fittest" will prevail.
An hour spent in the senate cham
ber gives one who is familiar with
such matters a very clear conception
of the real trouble which the present
legislature has had to encounter,
and it is a solemn truth that there is
more need for pity than blame. The
Home Rulers are trying to "do their
duty, and their earnest but fruitless
elforts are pathetic almost to tears.
The truth is that they do net know
either what or how to do, and it is
unfortunate for . them and for the
people of the Islands . they were
elected. On Monday, the appropria
tion bill was under consideration,
item by item and the ignorance
which was displayed by the members
as to the actual needs of the different
departments was refreshing. This
is not surprising, and could bo easily
overcome, if practical methods of
getting at the truth were adopted.
If the senate would resolve itself in-,
to a practical business like body, and
p point a committee of three or live
members, say for instance Baldwin,
Kalauokalam and Crabbe, and in
struct them to summon expert wit
nesses and report back at once to
the s-nate, tho actual needs of each
department, inside of two weeks a
fair and proper appropriation would
be ready for the governor's signa
ture. A few questions could be re
served if necessary for discussion by
the senate as a body, not necessarily,
but merely to give the inveterate
talkets something to wag their jaws
The ncwspapei a of Honolulu are all
doing well, and improving daily in
the quality and quantity of news
which they print. Editorially, they
are all as bright as new "Kaia
kauas." Smith of the 'Tiser is the
John L. Sullivan of tho lot, and when
he pulls himself together, and leads
off with his left, you can look out for
broken bones where he lands. Gill
of 4hc Republican is bright and ra
pier like in his work, and you are
often likely to commence bleeding
before you realize that he has hit
you. Farington of the Bulletin is
strenuous and for that reason does
effective work. He is more Ameri
can in his style of work than any of the
others. The Independent keeps up
its bright, shiny glow, and as for its
editorials, they are simply all
rijjht. The Star, well, the Star
boasts that it has no .editor, and
claims that the editorials which make
the. Star so strong a paper are evolved
by the stockholders. By darkening
the editorial room of the Star how
ever, and going into a mediumistic
trance, one can see faces floating
about the room. One face is large
and bearded, one young and smooth
shaven and to tell the truth, one is
distinctively a poetical face.
Last week and the early part of
this saw a number of prominent
Mauites in Honolulu, notably Attor
ney George Hons, Mr. J. Kirklai.d
of the Kahului store, Judge Kepoi

Lahaina, W. G. Taylor, Auditor of
of Alexander & Baldwin, A. Omste.l
of Hana and Manager Gjerdrum of
the Hana Plantation. By the way,
Honolulu is full of ex-Maui-ites and
of course they form a very desirable
and altogether delightful class of
The hotels, of Honolulu mo ull lull,

Hawaiian is preeminently the busi
ness men's hotel, and you meet
everybody worth knowing at the
Hawaiian. Recently manager Al
len designi d a lovely crest for the
hotel, nnd had a large design of it
erected over the ent rance. The de
sign is copied in part from the shield
on the Hawaiian half-dollar. This
design in mammoth size, (twelve feet
over all), and circular in shape, is

underneath is the word "ALOHA".
Three system of liiihU are attached
one of which lights :liu interior, one
the intials and let tering, and one the
outer circumference. The whole de
sign is marvciously unique and beau
tiful, and it is singular that it has
not attracted more notice from the
Honolulu press, being merely alluded
to by some of them recently as a
