gloomy for Maui shippers. The News has never attacked these
companies, possibly hoping At some time in the future to pick up

since been erected, thus relieving the strain and easing up the
situation, but as a matter of fact more residence houses are still
needed for the constantly increasing population.

The Wailuku Bank.
Owing to the temporary stringen
c v in the money market in Honolulu, it
has been found necessary to postpone
for a few months the inauguration of
the Bank of Maul. A large part of
the capital for the new bank will be
drawn from Honoljlu and ft was
deemed wiser to wait till returnafrom
the presentsugar crop have come in,
before putting the necessary amount
of money required iu a bank here,
whert it would remain out of circu
la, ion for some months.
Attorney Goeree Hons received a
let ter this week from Mr. Chas. D,
Lufkin, the promoter of the bank,
stating that business may call him to
tho coast at once, weere he may have
to remain for a few months, - but
so, immediately on his return, ne
will proceed in the matter of organ
izing and establishing the bank.
This delay will really be better for
tho bank, as there are many Maui
people who would bo glad to sub
scribe to the bapital stock of the
bank, but they need a little time to
gc t their financial affairs in shape to
do so. The chances are that by the
time Mr, Lufkin is ready to proceed
tho bulk of stock will be taken by
