Not long since the Honolulu Board
of Health ordered a tender for a
contract for beef at Malulanl Hos
pital rescinded and shortly afterward
removed the Board of Trustees,
which, as it perhaps correctly con
tended, were not legally qualified to
hold the position, and proceeded to
appoint a new Board of Trustees.
Dr. J. H. Raymond, manager or the
Kahikinui Ranch, who was appoint
ed on the new Board of Trustees,
felt himself personally aggrieved by
the severe editorial strictures of the
New;s, concerning wrat appeared to
be an arbitrary proceeding on the
part of the Honolulu Board of
Recently Dr. Raymond sought an
luterview with the editor of the
News aud gave the following version
of tne affair. He states that, as
manager of the Kahikinui Ranch, he
spoke to Sheriff Baldwin, who told
him that no matter what the bid of
the Kahikinui Ranch wa&, the Wai
luku Market run by the Chinan an,
Ah Boy, would bid one cent lower.
Feeling himself practically shut out
from bidding, Dr. Raymond says
that he laid the matter before the
Honolulu Board of Health, who
ordered the tender for bids rescind
ed, and for just cause, that of being
disqualified to hold the office, the old
Board, consisting of Dr. Weddick,
Sheriff Baldwin and Sister Bonaven-
ture were removed, and himself, C.
B. Wells and Senator Kaiue were
appointed as a new board. There is
no question but what, if Sheriff Bald
win took the above stated position
with reference to the bids of the two
rival firms, it was getting about
timu to call him d jwn.
However, Sheriff Baldwin was in
terviewed by the News and his state
ment of the affair is that upon the
establishment of the Kahikinui Mar
ket in Wailuku, the Wailuku Market
offered to supply meat to the hospital
at one cent lower thau the Kahiki
nui ranch would furnish it. This
placed the old Board of Trustees in
a dilemma, for 4f they bought meat
from the Kahikinui Market, thev
would be exposed to the charge of
paying one cent a pound more for
beef thau it was offereu to them for
in open market, and if they bought
from the Wailuku Market, it would
shut the Kahikinui Market out of fair
competition. In order t give both
markets a fair show it was finallj
decided by the old Board of Trustees
to let the beef contract to the lowest
sealed tenuer bidder, and Sheriff
Baldwin states that it was after this
decision was reached, and bids called
for that he had his first interview
with Dr. Raymond, at which time he
told him of the previous offer of the
Wailuku meat market, and told him
that was why bids had been called
The News distinctly and emphati
cally disavows any desire to interfere
in any private business matter, but
where our public institutions are in

which it will always insist upon, to
freely discuss, and if necessary crit
icise their management.
Extraordinary Meteor. 'j
On Thursday morning at about half
past four o'clock a large meteor
appeared from the south, directly
over the crater of Haleakala, and
apparently travelling in a north
east direction over Olinda, finally
disappeared behind the low hills to
ward Huelo. For twelve seconds
the huge fiery mass burned its path
through the heavens before disap
pearing behind the horizon.' In its
wake it left a long burning trail of
slowly fading, bluish colored flame,
which gave it tho appearauce of a
comet with a long, streaming tail.
After, the meteor had disappeared
from view, its path, remained distinct
ly marked by f a streak of light
colored smoke, more like steam,
which hung suspended in the air more
than an hour before it entirely faded
On Thursday afternoon, a wireless
message i was received from Hilo,
stating that the wierd celestral
visitor had passed directly over that
town, with a rumbling noise which
jarred the houses and rattled the
window, and that it remained in
view from four o'clock till 5.30. This
means perhaps that it left a trail of
smoke or steam visible for that length
of time, because' there is no doubt but
that it passed over Maui on schedule
8 to 3.
Baseballists witnessed the most
exciting and strenuous gains of the
season at Wells Park last Sunday
afternoon, when the Wailukus and
Ilimus played their first game.
Wailuku won the toss and took the
bat for the first half of the first in
ning, and by a lucky scattering of
base hits, assisted materially by a
few preliminary errors, chalked up
four runs. Then the Ilimas took the
bat, Krueger dying at first, Lloyd
out on fly to Cornwell and .V.'escott
ditto to Holt.
By this time the Ilimas had "found
themselves," and presented the Wai
lukus with a goose egg and when
they came to bat, a compliment
which the Wailukus returned in the
same inning. From that time on,
goose egg's predominated on the
score board, with here and there a
ljcky 1 run by one or the other
team, to the end of the ninth inning.
Thompson, the crack pitcher of
the Wailukus, failed the materialize,
and Cummings held down the pitch
er's box, with Clem Crowell behind
the bat. Ned Krueger, the cannon
ball pitcher of the Ilimas held down
the pitcher's bag for the full nine in
nings, and when his "dander riz,"
the balls came across the plate with
such force that Wescott simply
couldn't hold them, and Medt-iros,
who had been playing third took u
stunt behind the bat, not only hold
ing them all right, but making two
pretty put-outs at. second.
There was more personal feeling
during the early part of the game
than true manly sport should have
called for, the result apparently be
ing caused by over anxiety and ner
vousness. However, after the poor,
innocent reporter of the News had
been denounced as a ''cheap snort,"
the atmosphere seemed to clear up,
and all went as harmoniously as a
wedding feast. Corel!, who had been
doing beautiful work at first for the
Ilimas, w;s compelled to retire with
a lame knee in the seventh inning
and W. Wal3h took first, while J:
Walsh took Corell's place iu the
team, to the end of the game.
Neither team has anything to
apologize for, because after the first
spurt of the Wailukus both teams
settled, down to play with bulldoi
tenacity and courage, and the game
thy plaved was worth going to 6ee

A considerable portion of the St.
Cross properly has been leased to C.
Ah Nee, who will make improvements
shortly. The old stone house, and' a
piece of ground around it, are re
served for the use of the incumbent,
as heretofore. The building was con
structed originally for a marine
Hospital by the U. S. Government,
leave having been obtained from the
Hawaiian Government. This was
during the period when numerous
whaling vessels were often anchored
in the, stream, near Lahaina. The
superintendent of the Hospital also
kept a drug store in the town. When
the whaling industry declined, the
hospital was no longer needed, and
the property was purchased by Bish
op Willis. He established a church
School, and several Sisters were ap
pointed teachers. Some of the build
ings have been torn down. ,A small
cemetery' which . formerly belonged
to the Hospital, may still be seen in
one of the cane fields, not far from
the Roman Catholic church. About
16 months ago the St. Cross lot was
flooded during a violent storm, and a
heavy growth of underbrush sub
sequently sprang up. This has bean
nicely cleared away by Mr. Adams

, The S. F. F;arainer has had some
very attractive views taken in La
haina. The Christian Science Church was
dedicated last Sunday, at 11 a. m.
So large was the attendance that
many were obliged to stand. Visitors
were present from Honolulu, Hilo,
Lanai and other places. The ser
vices was conducted oy Pastor St.
John James Matthews, assisted by
Rev. J. Kekipi and Rev. J. Kealaula
of Honolulu, and Rev. W. E. Ed-
monds of Hilo. After the dedication
the visitors were entertained at a
luau. In the afternoon there was a
Sunday school exhibition, which was
followed by another luau.
On Monday evening a concert was
given in the church, and the singing
was very good. Among thoso who
took part were musicians from Hono
lulu, and some of the students of La
hainaluna Seminary. After the pro
gramme, ice cream and cake were
passed around. Remarks were sub
sequently made by Judge Kahaulelio,
Judge Kahokuolu-ia, Pastor Mat
thews and othet ministers above
mentioned. With the exception of
some English songs, the Hawaiian
language was used exclusively.
The original name of this religious
was "The Church of Reasonable Ser
vice," and it has only recently adopt
ed the designation of "Christian
Science." It is in no way connected
with the Eddy School of Christian
Scientists in the States. Tt is claim
ed that a number of remarkable
cures have been made recently.
