unexpected result of our Inst ad
was a tremendous, unprecedented
. rush for thoso shoes from the great

Men, women and children stood
in'lino awaiting their turn to be

tunately no lives were lost.
It is no trick at all to sell thoso
shoes. They sell themselves. Come

MCGREGOR'S LANDING COM
PLETED. At exactly twelve 'o'clock noon
Monday of this week the work on
McGregor's Landing was complct
Cotton Brothers & Co. had the
contract and since the work was in
charge of Mr. A. II. Moore, it has
been done rapidly.
The completion of this landing
will be of groat convenience to
thoso who travel to and from Ha
waii by the Kinau and Mauna Loa
and wish to visit Central Maui as
tho Landing will be a great im
provement over tho old Maalaca
Landing that was much exposed to
While no one expects this land
ing to bo so much used, nor tiny
thing like so good as the landing
at Kahului, yet it will bo a great
convenience and much safer than
the one formerly used on that side
of the island.
The length of tho wharf com
plete is two hundred feet, and is
sixteen feet wid8, with a head of
thirty by thirty feet.
The concrete piers are of suffi
cient numbers, sizo and depth to
mako the wharf a permanent
structuro while the cut water
affords double protection..
At tho end of the whnrf sixteen
feet of water may bo found at an'
tiniQ, and on tho wharf is two hun-
dred and forty feet of railroad
track which will make it easy to
bring freight from tho end of tho
wharf to tho warehouse.
There is a substantial warehouse
twenty-four feet by forty feet for the
accommodation of freight, and a
comfortable office and waiting
room for passengers.
Instead of the cutting winds- of
Maalaea, one may wait in comfort
for the steamer.

told tho story of "Chicken Little,"
to a class of children. He then
gave a paper on tho general topic
of tho cultivation of correct forms
of speech by tho pupils. The most
effectivo way to procure correct
speech is to have tho pupils read
stories, written in good, idiomatic
English, memorize them, and then
reproduce them with as much
dramatic action as possible.
A pianola solo followed.
Inspector Wells read from tho
preface of a manual on tho teach
ing of phonics by means of diacrit
ical marks. This reading provoked
a discussion on tho gonoral topic of
phonics, in Avhich Mrs. Austin, Mr.
Rosecrans, Mr. Copeland and oth
ers took part.
Mr. "Spoils then discussed tho
subject of fstory telling. Ho thought
the best method was that which
Ute individual teacnor could use
best. Mrs. Austin explained her
method. Mrs. Hofgaard thought
(hut for the eako of securing ex
pression emphatic words ought to
be marked by tho toaohor.
Mrs. Austin read a selection from

REPORT OF COUNTY ATTORNEY
Month' of March, 190G.
The report of County Attorney
was submitted in person and was
To the Honorablo Board of Super
visors, within and for tho
County of Maui:
This report, in so far as concerns
personal knowledgo of affairs, per
taining to the work of my Depart
ment for tho past month, only
covers the week ending March 31st,
I returned from the Coast on the
"Alameda," arriving in Honolulu
at noon on Friday, March 23, tak
ing the afternoon local steamer.
"Claudine," for Maui, arriving here
Saturday morning of the 24th.
By arrangements mado with the
Attorney General's Department
previous to my departure for the
East, the Criminal work coming on
for consideration and attention
during the March 190G term of our
Circuit Court was carried forward
by Deputy Attornoy-General Flem
ing, assisted . by Deputy County
Attorney, Mr. Crockett.
Tho disposition of tho term work
has met with my hearty approval
and I have extended to the Attor
ney General's Department not only
m)' personal but my official thanks
for tho speedy, efficient and satis
factory manner in which the work
I may hero'add that thcro will,
in no event, bo any extra expense
incurred by the County by reason
of my absence.
Upon my return I found the
Deputy County Attorney confined
to his bed, in the care of a physi'
cian, suffering from a severe attack
of remittant fever, similar to Den
gue, I believe, to which troublo has
been added an ulcerated tooth, and
completely unfitting Mr. Crockett
I take pleasuro in praising tho
conscientious and careuu manner
in which I find Mr. Crockett has
carried on tho duties of this De
partment during uiy absenco.Much
01 nis timo during tno month was
devoted to tho preparation of cases
coming before the Circuit Court,tho
examination of witnesses, reducing
their statements to writing, assi3t
ing in tho drawing of instructions
to he requested of tho Court by tho
Government, assisting in tho trial
of cases, etc. In addition to thoso
matters, the class and amount of
business that arisos in tho District
Courts had to receive its attention.
It has, horetoforo, been tho policy
of this Department to doal much
more lightly with offonders be
tween tho ages of fifteon and twen
ty than tho offonses or crimes, if
committed by oldor persons,, would
warrant. In many such instances
sentences havo been suspended; in
others, light fines imposed rathor
