dust raised by the trade winds, The

Mr. and Mrs. 04 ,fAt Hornet"?'
, On Tuesday evening last.' Mr. and
Mrs. Ogg gave a delightful "At
Home," in honor of Mr. and Mrs. A.
J. Lyon, who are visiting Wailuku.
A largo number of;guests were
present and tho event was one of
thoso dainty little social successes
which characterize new Wailuku. A
profusion of ferns, flowers and Chi
nese lanterns combined to produce a
charming effect, which was heighten
ed by the soft strains of the Waihec
quintette band and vocal and instru
mental music by tho guesis.
At ten o'clock a light but elegant
lunch was served, and dancing was
the order of the evening, making the
hours seem aH too short to the guests,
who reluctantly bade goodnight to
the hosts and guests of honor at the
arrival of tho "wee sma' hours aneut
That "Kinross" Fake.
On last Saturday morning, just
the News was going to press, Capt.
G. W. Murray, formerly of tho "An-
liope" but as present of the "Kin
ross," drove up to the ofiice of the
Ncwh, called tho editor out, and told
him that on the previous night the
'Kinross" had gone on a rock
in Maalaea Bay,and that he, to quote
his own words, "had been sent over
by Alexander & Baldwin to take
charge of the wreck in tho interests
of all concerned." Upon being
questioned further, he stated that
Pilot Bob English was on board the
"Kinross" at time of the' wreck.
In corroboration of his statement, he
pointed to his. luggage in the hack
and explained that he was taking it
over with him. Thereupon he got
in the hack and drove off at once in
tho direction of Maalaea Bay. Con
sidering the statement as semi-official,
coming from the source it did,
no further effort was made to verify
it, and the item was published.
As a matter of fact, the "Kinross"
never went on a rock, and at the
time the item was published, the
vessel was lyiug serenely at anchor
It is now up to Captain Murray
to explain his part in the matter,
for it is a very serious thing to cause
the insertion of fakes of this class in
M. A. A's. Win the Broom.
On last Sunday afternoon, a high
class game of base ball was put up
at WelU Park between the Morning
Stars and a picked team of M. A. A's.
Three runs in the second inning
and one in the fifth was the score of
the Stars, and two runs in the seven
th and three iu the ninth were chalk
ed up for the M. A. A's., giving them
the game by one run. The Stars
had the game in their pockets until
the ninth inning, when pitcher Jack
son becair rattled and' went clear
off his form, letting tho M. A. A.'s
come in easy. But it was a good
game, and well worth seeing from
start to finish. Catcher Cummings
of the M. A. A.'s played tho game
of his lite, putting up an errorless
record behir.d tho bat.
The line-up was as follows:
