QS Tho people o( Wailuku And of
of the roception tendered to Governor Dole and his party, wnile
they were here lust Saturday t.nd
such an opportunity to prove .Uiat
bestow d on her iu naming her a. the county seat of Maui Uountv
and her citizens rosponded to the occasion in a manner worthy of
them. Tho visit of (Jovernor Dole .had nothing whatever of political
or business big niticit lice but was a purely social function, yet its
influence will bo a fr reaching one, many directions. It ha
teught the citizens of Wailuku what can be accomplished by united
and harmonious action, and the lesson, thus learned will be of
Value to us when united action in civic affairs is needed. It has
'ajso drawn the citizens of Wailuku together in closer bonds of
friendship than ever before. Wailuku his a bright future before
it and her c itizois should ever
shoulder, as on tho present occasion and unite in making our little
tjwn one of tho crown jewels of Hnwaii nei.
$ Pre iu rations are uudcr way for a big race meeting at Spreckels
Park on August 12. Now that tut legislature has adjourned, and
the Governor has cumo and gone, the people of Wailuku and of
Maui should help along the matteir of a grand race meet in August.
The Maui Racing Association have offered generous purses, and
the indications are that there will be some fat Honolulu and Haw
aii horses on the track at Spreckels Park. And as this is probably
the last 12th of August race ineeet on Maui, it should be made a
genuine success. Next year, we will hold our big races on the
Fourth of July, and the Hilo pupeirs intimate that New Year's Day
would suit them better than the Fourth of July as race day. The
people of central Maui need such sports as races, polo, baseball
and football in their season, to relieve the harshness of our
strenuous life and every one should help along all such sports.
The matter of diversified industries finds an earnest supporter
iu Governor Dole, who in a private conversation with several gentle
men in Wailuku last week expressed it as his abiding faith that
the future will see many permanent and paying industries "estab
lished on the Islands. It does not take a very comprehensive vision
ito see this, for with a soil so fertile and fruitful as that of the Haw
aiian Islands, it is a moral certainty that certain lines of Island
productions, other than cane, will be developed into paying prop
ositions. Coffee, sisal, canned pineapples, bananas, castor abd
vanilla beans and vegetables are on the list of possibilities some of
which will become certainties.
A pamphlet has just been issued under the supervision of the
Experiment Station at Honolulu, concerning the cultivation of sisal
in Hawaii, by Frank E. Conter. Assistant, Hawaii Agricultural Ex
periment Station. From 600 to 900 plants per acre is the average,
according to the soil which yield ovei ten pounds of fiber, so that
on.e acre will yield from 6000 to 9000 pounds which bring 8 cents
a. pound f. o. b. at Honolulu, or ao average of $600 per acre, it tak
ing several years to mature and market a crop. From this show
ing, sisal should pay on the Islands. Owing to the success of the
Sisal farm on Oahu, other plantations have been started on Kauai,
Hawaii and Maui.
j$ One cannot but admire the brilliant though unscrupulous
diplomacy of Russia in her handling of the Manchurian question. The
nterests of the leading powers aire so great and complex in the
various quarters of the gfiobe that the whole resembles a great and
cumbrous but at the same time a delicate pieee of machinery, easily
put out ot repair. By playing' oil tho mutual interests of Great
Britain and France against each other, and by old fashioned, down,
right lying to the United States, Russia has managed to leave
Japan witnout allies and at the mercy of Russia, r While this, may
not improve the temper, still it may add to the discretion of the
little brown men.' ' ' ' ' "..: . ; . i
HSH The News takes pleasure in editorially reproducing a local
reading ad.. in, Tuesday's Advertiser, substantially as follows; "For
sale. First class vanilla cuttings in six-foot lengths at $2.50 per
100, l O. B. Suva. Address W. Livingston, Navua, Fiji." There
is no industry, no matter how seemingly unimportant which should
not he carefully exploited and the News considers it a sacred duty
to. encourage such things in all possible ways. An intelligent effort
should be made to cultivate the vanilla bean on Maui as a possible
source of future revenue.
gk The study of human nature
and no mutter where the book is
in the heart of London, whether amid the frozen wastes of the
arctic or under the waving mangoes of Wailuku the lines read
marvellously alike. Consequently it need surprise no one that a few
people at the luau who had not contributed one cert were the big
gest kickers when theit beer supply was cut off.
From the tone of some of the Honolulu papers it might be
imagined that Wailuku is unduly puffed up with pride. Such is
not the case however. The citizens of Wailuku have simply come
together and are-seizing whatever goods the Gods provide, jul as
good citizens should, do. 'f

A GALA DAY
In Hospitable Walluku.
Wailuku has one more proved it
self worthy of the claim of being one
of the live towD8 of Hawaii nei, and
has firmly established 1t reputation
as the lending town on Maul, not only
in business enterprise, but also in tbe
matter of public spirited citizens.
And the citizens of Maui generally,
from Lahaina to Hamakuapoko fairly
outrivalled Wailuku Itself in the gen
erous and hospitable reception which
they uuitpd in extending to ouf dis
tinguished guest, Governor S. B.
At a meeting of the citizens of
Mnui, an elaborate program was ar
ranged, aud thanks to the commit
tees who had the matter in hand, not
a ar or hitch or delay occurred,
everything going like clock work
from the lime the Governor set his
foot on Maui soil at Kihei, on Satur
day morning, until the last adieus
were spoken, and the gallant little
tug Iroquois breasted the waves on
Sundav mornine:. bearinir away o.r
guests to Muwaii.
The Iroauois arrived at luhel on
schedule time on Saturday morning
and was boarded by the all-Maul
reception committee . who escorted
the guests, consisting of Governor
Dole, Ebeu Low, A. G. Hawes, Capt.
Rodman, and A. Gartley, to the
wharf, where through the courtesy
ot Supt. Filler of the Kahului R. R,
Co., a special train was in waiting.
The party boarded the train, and
were swiftly whirled through the fat
acres of growing caue on central
Maui until they reached the Puunene
Mill, where they spent an hour, in
specting the workings of the largest
sugar mill on earth. Another short
run brought them to Kahului, and at
10:25, a warniug whistle sounded
the note of the arrival of the party
at the Wailuku Depot, where a large
crowd had gathered to welcome the
visitors. And here, the genuine and
happy surprise of tne day occurred.
As the train pulled into the depot, it
was greeted by the stirring strains
of the Wailuku brass baud. It was
known that Walluku had organized
a band, but few, even of the cititens
of Wailuku knew that the band was
prepared to attend public function.
Under the leadership of Mr Jos.
Schulmeister, the band has made ra
pid proficiency, and plays quite a
number of pieces with exquisite taste
and correctness. The welcoming
march as the train at rived, and the
sweet notes of the "Aloha Oe"
march a the Govomor and ' party
drove away in carriages were both
finely rendered, and added much to
the dignity of the occasion. .
At the Wailuku depot, the all-Maul
committee surrendered the Governor
and party to a Wailuku committee
who escorted them to the Maui Hotel
which had generously offered , them
its hospitalities, during the Gover
nor's visit, free of charge, and by the
OFFICE iii the Hawaiian . Islands.

way thi committee deserves special
cedit for its extreme courlns and
.ittention to our guests, while in
Wailuku. The cortege, from the d
pot to the Hotel was a brilliant, unci
dashing affair, led by the curriaye
containing the Governor and Mr.
Carl Walcleycr, chairman of the VTai
uku reception committee, and ac
companied by a handsomely dressed
scort of mounted police.
At the hotel the governor accorded
4 kindly and Informal reception to
all who desired to meet and greet
The luau in the scboolhouse had
tesn announced for 12.30 sharp, ai d
Ml. the exact minute, the governor
mid party wore received and the
doors thrown open, revealing long
lines of tables beautifully decor
ated and groaning beneath the
load of well cooked bullocks, pis,
chkkens, yams, fish and a complete
menu of other luau delicacies so gen
erously provided by 11 the people of
Maui. , After u bountiful repast
speeches were called for and Gover
nor Dole responded in a manner
worthy of the .occasion. He also
pointed out to the people' of Maui the
serious responsibility which had been
imposfd on them iu the matter of lo
cal self government, and urged tl.at
all racial lines be wiped out, and that
all who potesstd the proud right to
call themselves American citizens
should stand together, for good,
economical and honest management
of county affairs. Attorney John
Richurdson of Lahaina also made a
brief but eloquent address in Hawai
ian, heai til.v welcoming our guests to
the hospitalities of Maui.
As there were many who could not
attend the luau at 12:30, the luau
comnittee resolved to keep open
doors from noon till 6 P. M., whicu
was done, special viands being
reserved for those who came late.
By this means all were able to attend,
and all were bounteously served,
with some to spare.
The governor and party spent the
afternoon strolling or driving about
town, aud at six a formal banquet
was spread at the Maui Hotel. At
the conclusion of the banquet, the
party were driven to the Castle Hall
of Aloha Lodge, K. of P., where the
Governor extended a formal recep
tion not only to the people of Wai
iuku, but also to many from up coun
try, who had been brought down on
special train, to attend the function.
A large crowd was in attendance at
tbh reception, and the scene was a
bright and merry one, at which dlt
jious punch flowed like water, the
enlivening strains of a Hawaiian band,
and violin and piano music courteous
ly furnished by Messrs Schulmiester
and Schrader, and the whirl of mer
ry dancers united to make the scene
a memorable one.
At uiuo o'clock the Governor and
party excused themselves, and the
Governor was driven to Waikapu.
where ho spent the night as the
guest of Mr. and W. H. Cornwell.

All About the Luau.
The luaj committee havp preserv
ed all the data and the finance com
mittee all tip vouchers concerning
the luau, a study of which will bo of
much interest to those who wish to
give luaus in the future. The total
expenses of the luau und reception
were a few dollars short of 1400, of
which about 1350 were luau expenses.
Arrangements were made to feed
500 people Two bullocks, sii grown
pigs,four dozen chickens, 6 barrels of
poi. 5 barrels of beer, 10 cat-es of
soda water, 7 bags of potatoes, 2
b'tgs of luau, besides opae, opihi, lull,
kukui etc in corresponding quantities
constituted the menu. Two large imus
were built, which consumed li cords
of wood. 980 laulaus and one whole
pig were cooked in the imus. The
ahor bill alone for preparing the
luau was $63, which included the de
coration of the schoolhouse. This
might seem a large sum to those in
experienced, but as a matter of fact
twenty men were kept busy for two
days, besides the extra days and
nitht work, and it is a safe proposi
tion that every man jack of them
richly earned his dollar a day.
I he nnance committee were qure
successful in securing funds and all
bills will be paid in full For the in
formation of those who mny wish 'o
prepare large brews of punch, it may
bo stated that the punch for the
evening reception cost $20.
loo mucn praise cannot be accord
ded to Jailer David Crowell and Mr.
Jos. Welch, who were in charge of
the preparation of the luau and also
to Mrs. JNua and her young lady as
sistant who served the feast.
