the store of tho Maui Drygoods
and Grocery Co. was burglarized
and one piece of back merino, one
piece of black serge, and one
of denim was taken by a burglar
who entered the storo through a
On the following moraine the
window was still open, boxes were
piled up beneath the window to
allow tho burglar to gain admit
tance to the window and on a rain
coat in the storo were some cigars,
all of which attracted the attention
of the clerks. The matter was re
ported to Sheriff W.E. Saffery who
instituted a quiet search and as the
goods were all marked with a
private mark no diflicutly was met
in identifying them, when he found
them in the possession of a Market
Chung Kui was arrested on a
charge of burglary and as the
evidence against him was anything
but in his favor and he failed to
satisty his honor W. A. McKay as
to how the goods came intohis
prossession he was committed to
appear before the -grand jury.
He is said to have cut and made
many pairs of trousers out of tho
denim and unless he can put up a
better defence before the higher
Court than he did before the dis
trict magistrate it is possible that
he may be employed in making
trousers of this class of goods for
some tims to come.
K. P. HALL GAS PLANT. " .
The Knights of Pythias hall has
a new acetylene gas plant just in-
installed which promises to add
much toward making the hall all
tho moro attractive.
In the lodgo room proper twelve
fifty candle power lights have been
installed while throughout the
various rooms sixteen additional
lights of various sizes have been put
in which brings up the total to
practically Ono Thousand candle
power, as the cost or tins gas is
about one third of the cost of oil
does not give off offensive order
nor heat the room .as oil would,
and can be turned off instantly it
win ue a great improvement over
the old system employed.
The cost of a plant of this size is
about $300 including freight and
installing same but through tho
kindness of Mr. S. B. Harry the
representative' of the Sunlight Gas
Machine Co. the plant has been
bought and installedat a saving of
over $100 Mr. C. D. Lufkin has
probably done moro to raise tho
necessary funds than any indivi
dual and deserves the gratitude of
all who may attendant any of tho
social funcitions at th.B hall.

evening at the opening of Wailuku,s

Many ladies and gentlemen were

A bountiful supply of good things
to eat were served. Tho proceeds
of the dance will be used to pay

penses of the Company which
deserves the support of every good
citizen on the islund.
Had the wer.ther permitted the
attendance would probably have
been one of the largest that a Wai-
luku dance has ever had.

have taken place during that time.
While ho is glad to get back and

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2. The
President today issued tho follow''
ing proclamation, naming Thurs
day, November 30th, next as a day
"By the President of the United
States of America, a proclamation
"When, nearly threo centuries
ago, the first settlers came to tho
country which has now become
this great Republic, they faced not
only hardship and privation but
terrible risk to their lives. In those
grim years the custom grew of
setting apart one day in each year
for a special'scrvice of thanksgiving
to tho Almighty for preserving the
people through tho changing sea
sons. The custom has now become
national and hallowed by immemo
rial usage. Wo live in easier and
moro plentiful times than our foro
fathers, the mon who, with rugged
strength, faced the rugged day;
and yet the dangers to national
life are quite as great now as at
any provious time in our history.
It is eminently fitting that 'once a
year our people should sot apart a
day for praise and thanksgiving to
tho giver of good, and, at tho same
time, that they express their thank
fulness for the abundant mercies
received, should manfully acknow-
edge their shortcomings and
pledge themselves solemnly and
in good faith to strive to overcome
them. During tho past' year wo
ha.ve been blessed with bountiful
cr&pct Our business prosperity has
been greS4No other people has
ever stood n as high a level of
material well-being as ours now
stand. We are not threatened by
foes from without. The foes from
whom wo should pray to be de-
ivered are our passions, appetites
and follies, and against these there
is always need that we should war.
"Therefore. I now set apart
Thursday, the 30th day of this
November, as a day of thinksgiving
for the past and of prayer for the
future, and on that day I ask that
throughout the Nation the people
gather in their homes and places
of worship, nnd, in rendering
thanks unto the Most High for tho
manifold blessings of the past year,
consecrate themselves to a life of
cleanliness, honor and wisdom, so
that this Nation may do its allott
ed worK on the eartn in a manner
worthy of those who preserved it.
'In witness whereof I have here
unto set my hand and caused tho
seal of tho United btates to be
''Done at the city of Washington,
this 2nd day of November, in tho
year oi our Lord ono thousand
nine hundred and five, and of tho
independence of the United States
the one hundred and thirtieth.
