Where New Wharf Should Be
The question of abandoning the
wharf at Maalaea Bay and building
a new wharf at McGregor's Landing
Is under consideration, and there is
no doubt but McGregor's Landing is
(or many reasons far preferable to
Maalaea Bay us a landing point for
passengers and freight. Wailukans
who do not stop to consider, naturally
feel a bias in favor of Maalaea Bay
simply because it is nearer o Wui
luku. But when the matter is anal
yzed, it is found that in actual point
of time consumed McGregor's Land
ing is nearer to Wailuku .than Maa
iaeu Bay. It is a 15 minutes a rive
from McGregor Landing to the Maa
laea wharf, but on the other hand a
steamer will reach anchorage at
McGregor Landing 15 minutes sooner
than it could anchor at Maalaea Bay
so no time is lost. The' great gain
however lies iu the fact that a boat
can anchor within less than 200 feet
ttirn the wharf at McGregor Land
ing, and but a few moments are re
quired to land passengers and bag
gage, whereas at Maalaea Bay the
anchorage ground is several hundred
yards distant from the wharf.
Maalaea Bay is exposed to the full
force of the winds, an 1 when a trade
wind is sweeping across the isthmus
it takes the row boats from tit teen
minutes to half an hour to reach the
landing, and sometimes when the
winds are very stroug, boats, cannot
reach the wharf at all, and are some
times blown out to sea and have to
be followed and. picked Up by the
steamers to which they belong. Dur
ing a kona storm it is. impossible to
land at Maalaea Buy,' which never
happens at McGregor Landing, for
no matter" which way the wind is
blowing, or how hard, the place is so
sheltered that an easy and safe land
ing can be made.
Capt. Parker of the Claudiue, who
is one of the most experienced coast
navigators in the inter-island service
is authority for the statement that
there is 43 feet of water within 100
feet of the shore at McGregor Land
ing. There are no improvements
whatever at McGregor Landing at
present, but it is authoritatively
stated that the steamship companies
will erect a comfortable waiting room
forpasengers if the government will
put a wharf there, which by the
way should not cost over $2000, as
only a small wharf is needed. The
principal cost will be the construction
of a road on an easy grade from the
landing to conuectwitb the pa'i road,
and as only a short piece of road
will be needed, its cost will not be
disproportionate to the bene tils.
McGregor's Landing would have
beeu selected instead of Maalaea Bay
in the first place, to build a wharf, if
the pali road had thou been built,
-and now that a new wharf is needed
it should be built at McGregor's
landing, and a road to connect with
the pali road should be land out on
the best possible grade, and built.

The Base Ball Season,
The postponed meeting of the Maui
Athletic Association was held last
Monday evening at the Wailuku
Court house, with Pres. Baldwin in
There were matters of importance
for consideration but owing to the
fact that there was barely a quorum
present, nothing but appointing a
League Committee was done.
Thin league Committee consists nf
Mr. Kirkland, L. R. Crook and G. B.
Schrader and they are to arrange
the schedule of games, length of sea
son, ground rules etc. It was the
sense of the meeting that all parties
desiring to enter teams in this league
notify the Committee of such inten
tion, on or before March 31, 1903.
The season will start on Apr. 12
The Secretary was instructed to
communicate with the Lahaina team
with a view pf having them enter the
league. Director Bat has had Wells
Paik cleaned, same will be rolled
this week putting it in fine condition.
Some needed repairs will be made on
The indications now. are that there
will be four teams in the league this
season, one each from Wailuku, Ka
hului, Waikapu and Lahaina, each of
which will be represented by a
strong team. As an encouragement
tq the teams, it has been decided
that the winning team shall have 35
per cent and the. losing team 15 per
ent of the gate receipts for the
games they play. The next regular
meeting of the Association will be
held Apr. 6, and every member should
Manager Gjerdrum Promoted.
Manager rum, who succeed
ed the late David Center about ten
years ago as Manager of the Hana
Plantation, and who has since held
that position, has been offered and has
accepted the management of Hono
kaa Plantation on Hawaii, to succeed
Manager Watt'; resigned..
Mr. Gjerdrum; nas always stood
high, not only in the estimation of his
employers but also of his employees,
and is one of Hawaii's typical suc
cessful plantation managers. His
many friends on Maul will regret his
departure, but Honokaa and Schaf-
fer & Co. are to be congratulated on
having secured his services.
It is reported that the manage
ment of Hana Plantation has been
offered to Mr. Bull, now at the old
Hamoa Plantation, and that he has
accepted the position.
The showers on Sunday prevented
a large attenuance at Church.
