5$ It looks as though the " outs" would try for an inning on June
20 with very much the same material as was-available at the last
0? The news of the great naval battle between the Japanese and
Russians is very meagre and unsatisfactory. It looks as though
both the admirals are playing for time and an adv antage.
JJj With a league on Central Maui, the winners co play the champ
ions of the Lahaina league a series of five games for theichampionship
of Maui, interest in the harmless yet invigorating sport could be
jQ$ Mexico celebrated May-day by coming out for the gold
standard, and the change was effected with little or no trouble.
Hawaii has come out for County government, which the Governor
says is a "gold brick" act. This is a distinction in the karat with
a big difference.
ss a a
JQJ Wailuku, which has always been the home of out-door sports,
will have to get rapid action if they do not want Lahaina to carry
off the baseball plum this season. The game last Sunday at La
haina demonstrated that West Maui has some sporting blood
which had only been lying dormant, but which could put up as good
an exhibition as one would care to see.
jy The parents of an Illinois college student killed in a railroad 1
accident sued the railroad to recover damages, but the court de
cided that as the student did not contribute to any one's support
but was really an expense, the parents could not recover damages.
The judge struck a sympathetic cord in the hearts of many a
parent when he said that the student was an expense.
faS With two of Maui's three senators " bucking" the island and
its appropriations, it. is little wonder that tne school and court
house appropriations have been cut to a mere shadow of what was
asked. This may be good legislation on account of not knowing
what amount of funds are available; but, Senators, it looks as
though, now that the election is over aud you safe, the people
might " go where the woodbine twineth." Maui gets little enough
as it is without having what she might possibly have appropriated
Vi?H:o.i out of all semblance to its former self.
jj An opportunity is offered the people of Maui to not only en
courage diversified industries, but to improve health matters by
encouraging the new steam laundry project which is now on foot. I
The proprietors promise a strictly modern steam laundry com
plete in every detail. Whatever help is required will be paid a
fair Vu ge and this stipend will be spent on the island. From a
sanitary standpoint nothing can improve on the steam laundry as
a health improver and the possibility of the transmission of dis
ease rms is done away with, while on the other hand the possi
bility cf contracting skin diseases from the Chinese laundries in
creases as the summer months and dry season advances.
5 dime law or no game law, the reckless destructionof pheasants
is a natter which should have not only the attention of the proper
authorities, but of the sportsmen of Maui as well. Mr. Robb of
Kaanapali says that the promiscuous shooting of these birds, irre
spective of season, is being indulged In by others than natives
and Japanese, and there are some who are not satisfied with
shooting them in the ordinary way but have even gone so far as to
shoot the hen birds in their nests. This does not speak well for
the sportsmanship of these individuals. True sportsmen do not
need laws to govern them; they know better than others when the
various game of the island should be shot ; and if the former class
of hunters are to be permitted to indulge in killing, the time is not
far distant when there will be no game left. Sportsmen should
organize gun clubs if necessary to protect their interests.
The six hundred Japanese from Honolulu
landed at Seattle on May 1st have been dis
tributed over the various divisions in Eastern
and Western Washington of the Great North
ern Railroad, These Japanese were clearly
contract laborers, but the attempt to prevent
their landing proved fruitless, because the
law considered them as having come from an
American Territory. Our Senators and Rep
resentatives in Congress will be recreant to
to the trust reposed in them if they fail to
protest against this palpable evasion of the
spirit of the contract labor law. Hawaii is
being made a convenience of and something
must be done to put an end to the outrage.
S. F. Chronicle.
By the time the labor unions have taken up this question and
made conditions too uncomfortable for the Japanese, they may wish
they were back in Hawaii woikingfor tbe wage paid them, and
where the conditions were not so hard as they imagined; that is
taking the conditions on the coast as a basis.
Hruce Hartman representing the Sani
tary Steam Laundry of Honolulu, arrived
on the Mauna Loa last evening to look
into the matter of establishing a steam
laundrv on Maui.
Should the conditions and prospects
warrant, it is the intention to establish a
small but complete laundry with all the
necessary modern machinery to handle
Mr. Harlman expects to go to the
coast next nion'tn and purchase addition
al machinery for the enlarging of the
Honolulu plant and should it be decided
to established a branch on this island a
strictly new piant will be purchased for
Will Change Line.
Arrangements have just been com
pleted for the changing of the road of
the Kahului Railroad to get in close
touch with the mill, present and pros
pective of the Maui Agricultural Co. at
Paia. The road will leave its present
line at the rise of the sand-hill east of
Spreckelsville and bend more towards
mauka and come out below the site of
the proposed new mill of the Maui
Argicultural Co. An attractive pas
senger depot, with spacious grounds,
will be built on the east side of tbr
government road. This change is o,ne
which has long been contemplated and
will expedite the handling of the sugar
crop by both the plantation and the
