MAUI CLAIMS THE FOURTH
And Backs Its Clnlin.
Maul has claimed its own again in
the matter ot the Fourth of July fol
ks Grand Annual Race Meet. For
years Maui held its annual races on
the Fourth of July, but lax methods
and a pea-nut policy prevailed to
such an extent that racing languish
ed and Hik quietiy appropriated
our race day without a protest.
Last year the matter was taken
in hand by the leading race men on
Maui, new men were elected as offi
cers of the Maui Racing Association,
big purses were offered for the 12th
of August races, and a successful
meeting was the result. Ever since
that event, the feeling has been
growing that Maui should reclaim iU
old racing day, and that feeling found
unanimous expression at the annual
meeting of the Association on last
It was vhe dale fixed for the an
nual election of officers, and the fol
lowing wero elected:
G. B. Robertson, President; J. J.
Walsh, Vice-President; D. L. Meyer,
Secretary; W. T. Robinson, Treas
urer; J. Kirkland, Jas. N. K. Keola
and George Keeney, Executive Com
The Association decided to offer
the sum of $1,350 in purses, which will
be increased to $1,500 if necessary,
and the executive committee were
instructed to prepare a liberal pro
gram at once, for publication, which
will of course be subject to final ac
tion at the next meeting of the Asso
ciation in May.
The result of last year's races has
been to stimulate racing on Maui, and
several new members joined the As
sociation at Tuesday's meeting.
There will be several new Maui
horses to compete for honors at the
meet, among which Col. W. II. Corn
well, President of the Honolulu
Jocky Club, promises to add a string.
It was ascertained at Tuesday's
meeting that quite a number of the
members are in arrears with their
dues, Bnd the secretary was instruct
ed to send them notifications to
square up,acd with the certainty of a
big race day on the Fourth, most of
them will doubtless do so, thus giv
ing the Association sufficient funds
to put the track in good repair. .In
this connection, the Association is to
be congratulated on the mako up of
its preseDt Executive Committee, all
of whom are live men, and who will
leave nothing undone to make our
Fourth of July races a grand success.
Big Results at Puunene.
Twice a day the air of central Maui
is thrilled with the hoarse cry of the
huge steam whistle at Puunene, bring
ing with it the storied picture of
great machinery at work, of long cane
trains bringing grist to its mill and
long sugar trainp carrying away its
golden fruition, of hurried and busy
men, and the swift transition of wav
ing cane into sacks of sugar.
The detailed results of this work are
no less interesting than a contem
plation of general results. Last week
the mill turned out 1506 tons of sugar
in a six days run, or 251 tons per
day. These figures alone give but a
faint conception of the work done.
Between 500 and GOO cars of cane
are cut and brought to the mill
daily, and over three train loads each
containing 1,000 sacks of sugar,
uaily leave the mill for the wharf
If the cane ground daily were made
up in one train load, it would be
more than a mile long. Those ouly
who are familiar with the process of
bringing cane to mills can fully ap
perciate the herculean labor involved
iu handling this amount of cane. The
output of sugar at Puunene for the
last month alone reached the enor
mous umount of 6,292 tons, a task
never before accomplished by any
sugar mill on earth.
' Mr. Frank Baldwin is acting as
manager of the plantation during
the absence of his father, Hon. H.P.
Baldwin, now in the Territorial sen
ate, and is developing a high degree
of executive ability, such as will
make his services always in high de
mand. A generous rivalry now ex
ists between Mr. Baldwin and Chief
Engineer Williams of Puunene Mill,
the former striving to land more
cane at the mill than Mr. Williams
can handle, and the latter striving
to grind more cane than' Mr. Bald
win can land at the mill, the result
of which are the flattering figures
above given, .
A very successful biiseball season
n Maui is now mi assured fact. Four
strong tearrs have entered the league,
the Morning Stars, the Wnilukus, the
Kahuluis and the Lahainas.
At first there wns some doubt as
to whether the Kahuluis could secure
a pitcher, but they now have a
rack i-r jack in Ned Krueger, and
are going iu red-ejed lor the cham
pionship cup. The Morning Stars
have lost pitcher Jackson to the
Maiilo llimas. Krueger has come
to the front with a rush, soins claim
ing that he is an abler twirler than
Jackson who will pitch for the Moru
ing Stars' team until they break in a
new pitcher. The Wailulius.eomposed
f the combination of the Alerts and
Wuikapus is full of sound timber and
if Thompson pitches, they ought, to
stand l ight up at the head of the
class. The Lahainas are a strong
team, even if Searlo should not play
with them, and the team that wius
the cup this season will have to get
right down and play ball.
A called meeting of the Associa
tion was held on Thursday evening,
at which linal arrangement were
perfected for the initial game. James
Coral of Kahului was selected as offi
cial umpire and Manuel C. Ross of
Puunene as official scorer for the

A singular instance of forwarding
money by wireless telegraphy, and
the first known instance of the kind
recently occurred in Wailuku.
A gentlemen- in Wailuku desired
to pay a considerable sum of money
in San Francisco, and applied to the
First National Bank of Wailuku,
who forwarded the money by wireless
to Honolulu and thence by cable to
Wells, Fargo & Co.'s Bank in San
Francisco. A letter has ust been
received from Wells, Fargo & Co.'s
Bank addressed to our local bank,
stating that the dispatch was re
ceived and the money paid in San
Francisco on the same day that the
dispatch was sent from here.
This was quick work, as well as a
novel method of sending money by
wireless, and has a tendency to make
Wailukar.s feels that they are not so
fr out ot the world, after all. ,
Cyt'UH T. Green Fount! Culllj ,

Mr. Green, on his recent trip to
the const accepted the agency of
the Rolhetiberg Co. On his return,
i(! solicited orders for the linn, .inu
secured quite a number, which wi re.
n due time filled. So far, he was
within the pale of ihe law, but
t. is claimed that he recently receiv
ed twelve cases, of which only twi
cases were bona fide orders, the rest
being consigned for sale. The polio
succeeded in securing a spy, who it
was claimed, bought a case ot liquor
from Green for $8.00. This is whsre
Mr. Green blundered.
So far us soliciting ordered for the
Siin Francisco firm tud forwurding
tl em to be tilled and shipped to the
parties ordering, the inter-state
laws protect Mr. Green, but there is
a wide distinction between that
course and having whiskey shipped
here to be sold on consignment. Love

each pay $1000 per annum as a
territorial liccii.-c, and as a protec
tion tn them others who soli liqui r
on consignment without a license,

Mr. Green claims that the. partic
ular case of whiskey for tin: sale
of which he was convicted, was duly
ordered of Rothenber & Co., through
him as agent, and that the order wus
duly forwarded to the San Francisco
house, who filled the order and ship
ped the goods.
Mr. Green was arrested under two
separate charges of the same natur e,
and upon the conclusion of the first
trial yesterday, the trial in the
second case was immediately taken
up, the result of which was that he
was convicted and fined $100 on the
second charge also.
