WORKING FOR MAUI
On last Fridav evening, the execu
tive committee of the Improvement
Association of Wailuku District, held
a meeting to dijrest the work cut out
for thein at Wednesday's meeting of
It beini? learned at the meeting
that Mr. Case, Mr. Coelho and Mr
Robertson of the executive committee
were going to hoiioiuiu on isaiuruu.y,
they were appointed as a special com
mittte to lay all matters considered
before the government authorities
and ask for information and action.
The committee held a long inter
view with Treasurer Kepoikai at tne
Hawaiian Hotel on Sunday, and re
ceived from him much needed inform
ation as well as a cordial support,
which promise he more than fulfilled
before the committee left Honolulu.
On Monday morning the commit
tee, in company with Kepoikai held a
loncund interesting interview with
Superintendent of Public Works, C.
S. Holloway, and fully explained to
him what the committee wished to
accomplish, and received from him
the assurance that he would extend
his hearty cooperation in furtherance
of their plans.
An int erview was then sought with
Governor Carter, who having learned
through the Honolulu press that such
a committee had arrived from Maui
appointed Monday afternoon at
o'clock for the interview. By invita
tion of the committee, Supt. Holloway
and Treasurer Kepoikai were pres
cut at the appointed time and a long
and informal but quite satisfactory
Interview was held with Governor
Carter duriutr which the fact was
brought to view that in the loau bill
$178,000 was appropriated for Maui,
only one-half of which Is available, for
the reason that only oue half Ot the
bonds have 'been cold. Governor
Carter informed the committee how
ever that he had decided to sell th
remaining one-half of the bonds on or
before tho first of July, so that the
whole loan appropriation would be
available during tbe summer.
' The Governor then went into
careful investigation of the more am
portant needs of Maui, a prepared
list of which were presented by the
committee. The matter of equipping
therire department was taken up
and it developed that tho loan bill
makes no provissious tor hydrants
without which n fire department
would be useless. Not lortg since.
Honolulu ordered an additional lot of
hydrants, and it was understood that
the hydrauts needed for Wailuku and
Kahului were included in the order,
Superintendent Holloway howeve
blushingly confessed that when tb
Honolulu order went on, Wailukuhad
been cut out. It was agreed in the
interview however, that Superintend
ent Holloway should at once forwar
an order for hydrants according to
the specifications heretofore 'furnish
ed to the department by Supt. Bal of
the Wailuku water works. It was
also agreed that hose carts and hose
for two carts should at once be order
ed, and that work should at once be
begun on a fire department building,
The matter of the Iao Valley roa
was then taken up, and it was agreed
that tbe work should be pushed. It
was agreed that the bulk of the work
should be done in the upper portion
of the valley, leaviug our road board
to handle the lower end, as the
amount appropriated is insufficient.
Probably however the grade may be
lowered near the reservoir as that
can be done at a small expense ac
cording to the survey made some
months since by Mr. Silliman.
Road work was then discussed and
committee urged immediate work on
the road and bridges to Maaluea Bay,
repairing the parapets on the pa'i
road, and the building of much needed
bridges near Olowalu. The uppsr
jKula road, the "road to'Kihei, from"
"ahito Kailua, the Nahiku road, the
road from Lahaina to Honolua and
from Honolua to Waihee were also
discussed, and the committee strony
ly urj;ed that tho work bo begun on
them as soon as possible.
The proposition of a jit.il at Wai
luku was discussed in connection with
the buikli.ig ot a courtr.ouse. The
oppression of Governor Carter and
upt. Holloway seems to be that the
use of the unfortunate word "county"'
in the clause uppromiaiinif money
for the courthouse will tie the hands of
the government. This is of course a
silly contention, for t'. ere is not and
uaver was a county government ou
M;iui, and everyone knows that the
appropriation was made for the spec
ific purpose of building n courthouse
t Wailuku. If however, the Governor
aud Supt. of Public Works insist on
their contention there is nothing for
the helpless people of Maui to do save
to wait for. legislative action, to
smooth out the difficulty.
At the close of the interview Gov.
ernor Carter was asked to state spec
ideally what he would do for Maui,
He declined to make any specific
promise, but assured the committee
that he would give the matters pre
sented, to bim immediate coiisideru
tion, aud that the department of
Public Works would take them up in
detail and push them to a finish will:
iu the next few months.'
The News man was in Honolulu
when the fit st league game ot ball fur
the season was played in Wailuku,
and is indented to his under study iu
the News office for the following in
teresting skit, apropos of the game.
It was generally supposed that the
Morning Stars having lost some of
their be6t pluyors, which forced them
to put new material in the field, that
the coming championship would be
between the Kahuluis and Wailukus
But the first game played between
the Stars and Makawaos, on Sunday
last proved that their new ones are a
hard proposition. M. E. Meyer a scu
of our old townsman, D. L. Meyer, the
first time in a league game, has cer
tainly played wonderful ball.
Owing to the death of A. J. Rod
rigues, tbe two Garcias members of
the team, could not play and master
Meyer was put in 2id. baseman's
place, and the ease with which he put
three men out by his wonderful ball
throwing should put all of opposing
teams on their guard, what a .crack
er-jack coming pitcher?
When this young man plays a few
games and learns what be has to do,
he "will certainly be a wonder, we pre
diet a coming Champion in this
The following is the official score of
the game, the low record of the Ma
kawaos being explained by the fact
that they were playing on new
ground, against a veteran team, and
there is no doubt but that when they
get one or two new men that they ex
peci, and play one or two games.
they will develop a formidable team
