On Thursday morning a heavy kona
storm blew up, accompanied by
heavy rains during the day. In the
afternoon it cleared off, when a
magnificent sheet of snow appeared
on'Haleakala, extending lower down
than there is any record of before,
reaching almost to Olinda. A vio
lent thunder storm at the head of
Lo Vallev accompanied the ruin.

', bridge in Lahaina, the other day,
ind there is an almost impassible
place on the rise of the grade on the
' pall, which should be fixed.
oblo to announce that steps have
been taken to establish a National
Bank in our sister city of Lahaina,
us soon ni the ni-cesury steps can lie
taken, und the indications now-are
that within the next three months,
its doors will be thrown open for bus
iness. The charter has already been
applied for and the subscription
books for stock In the now bunk ivre
now open. The bonk will be capital
izedfor $25,000,and as an evidence of
their confidence, the people of Lahai
na will be called upon to take up
$10,000 worth of the stock.
Manager Chas. D. Lufkiu of the
First National Bank of Wailuku, who
is organizing the new bank at Lahai
na, visited Lahaina one' clay this week,
and took subscriptions to the amount
of $6,500 for stock in the new bank,
and states that there is no doubt but
that the people of Lahaina will sub
scribe the full amount of $10,000,
which of course will be necessary to
establishment of tun bank. The re
maining $15,000 is ready to be sub
scribed on the day that Lahaina has
subscribed its required amount.
The new bank at Lahama will
be practically bo under the same
management as that of the National
Bank of Wailuku, but it will be an
entirely separate bank, and not a
branch of the Wailuku bank. The
five directors of the Wailuku Bank
will probably be directors of the La
haina Bank, with two additional di
rectors resident of Lahaina as di
rectors of the Lahaina Bank.
' Tno citizens of Lahaina are a wide
awake set of business men, ready to
encourage ail legitimate enterprises,
aud as it is now up to them lo make
the bank at Lahaina a sure go, there
is uo doubt but that tney' will sub
scribe tho necessary amount of stock
in short order. A site for the bank is
not yet decided upon, although sev
eral options have-been offereu to Mr.
Lufkin, but that is a minor matter,
for if it should become necessary,
there is-no doubt but that the citizens
of Lahaina would erect a bank build
Being under practically the same
management, cordial relations will
exist betweeu the ,two banks, aud
each will serve as a source of strength
to the other. On account of the
volume of business drawn trom La
halni to the First National Bank of
Wailuku, Manager Lufkin, who has
had the matter of establishing a bank
at Lahaina undr consideration for
some time, feels quite confident that
the new bank wirf be nearly if not
quite as successful as our own Wai
A Successful Raid.
Capt. George H. Cummings of the
Wailuku police headed an expedition
to Kabuiui on Wednesday afternoon,
consisting of Dep. Sheriff Saffery, Wil
lie Searl, Clem Crowcll and Miguel
Paresa who succeeded in capturing
a pakapio outfit at Ah Mi's place.
Three of the policemen disguised
themselves as wahines and the other
two as drunken sailors by which
means they succeeded in reaching
the place without arousing the suspi
cion of tho iurjates, and were com
pelled to batter down the door with
a sledge hammer, it having been se
cured with heavy bars.
In the meantime, Deputy Sheriff
Saffery had managed to c imb up on
to the upper balcony, and lookiug in
through a window saw three- China
men gathering up tickets which they
saturated with gasoline, placed in a
tin can, and set oa fire. They
then placed the can on the balcony
on the opposite side of the house from
Sheriff Saffery, who managed to
make his way round, broke through
a lattice, captured the tin and ex
tinguished the fire before the tickets
were entirely . $strpyed, although
he burned his hands in doing so.
By this time the police has broken
in and succeeded in reaching the up
per floor, when the three Chinamen
were placed under arrest. Seven
other Chinamen, including Ah Mi,
proprietor of the place who were
present, were not arrested. The
three Chinamen who were arrested,
were each released upon depositing
$500 in cash . bail, the money being
furnished by Ah Mi. Their case will
probably be called up for trial on
Monday. ., . ... ,

Republican Club Meeting.
i i .
The deferred republican club meet
ing was held at Wniiuku Court House
lust Monday evening r.'ith jui tc a
Judge Kaltia caller! the meeting to
order, and proceeded to discuss the
county bill at length and intelli
fftitly. Tfo began by stating Hint
personally ho wtis not in favor of any
enmity bill, but that a county bill had
become a necessity which must be
accepted. He then took up in detail
ninny of the provisions of the bill,
some of which he approved and others
of which he criticized. He approved of
the management of county affairs' by
a Hoard of Supervisors, but feared
that too much power is being placed
in their hands relative to the fixing
of taxes, nnd urged that the utmost
good judgment be used in the selec
tion of men to be selected as super
visors. He npproved ot the appoint
ment of district magistrates by the
governor, but argued that school
matters should be left in the hands of
the people of the coun ty.
The Judge touched but lightly on
the county seat question, realizing
perhaps that his audience was not in
sympathy with him on that subject,
but he declared himself in favor of
Manager Wells then took the llcor
and in a brief manner pointed out so
clearly the reasons' why the county
seat must and will be at Wailuku
that every one sank back into his
seat with a self satisfied expression,
and the county scat question ceased
to be an issue before the meeting, al
though several other speakers took
the floor ou the matter. Louis Koo
koo briefly spoke for Wailuku, and
Sheriff Baldwin stated that while all
his property inte'rests lay in Lahaina
and that it would be lo his personal
benefit to see Lahaina the county
seat, still tne claims of Wailuku were
so juit and so numerous that he was
as a matter of right and conscience
in favor of Wailuku.
A rising vole was then taken on
the proposition, which was of coui be
practically unanimous, in favor of
Mr. J. K. Kahookele then moved
'he appointment of a committee of
five to prepare a petition and resolu
tion concerning the matters decided
at the meeting, but upon discussion
it was decided that it was now too
late to begin and that such a step
should have been taken before, in
order that the matter could- have
gone to the executive committee be
fore the legislature met.
After some further discussion the
New Telephone Company.
There have been rumors for some
time that the Chinese on Maui were
figuring on establishing a uew tele
phone company here, and the plan
has so far materialized that an ap
plication has been made to the legis
lature for a charter. The company
is to be capitalized for $15,000 with
the privilege of increasing the capital
stock to $50,000.
S. Ah Mi and Yeong Yung are at
the bead of the enterprise, the form
er being the president and the latter
the treasurer, with T. B. Lyons as
us vice-president aud Senator S. E.
Kaiue as auditor.
The system to ba installed is one
formerly in use in Honolulu, in which
there will be only one central office.
It is said that over one hundred sub
scribers have been secured, and the
rates of $2.50 aud $3.50 per month
for the use of the service will prob
ably bo fixed upon.
At best the new enterprise seems
a risky oue, and it is not at all likely
that it will be put into successful
