To Do Us Up
During the few days that followed
that awful catastrophe across the
ocean, that laid the beautiful city of San .Francisco in ashes, and
left her people in tears or beneath the ruins to weep no more;
thousands of people in the islands were waiting with bated breath
to hear some word of loved ones who were in that stricken city.
Many others had friends most dear whose safety was the prayer
of those left behind. Millions of dollars worth of property were at
, stake and news was most anxiously sought by all. At this time
nearly all who were in a position to get information did so and dis-
tributed the same freely. The cable people have won the undying
gratitude of Hawaii nei." The Superintendent of the Wireless sys
tem has done the same, while the Advertiser of Honolulu, not car-
ing to trade in the sorrows of the people, printed extra editions
- and distributed them free of cost, "Fraser" has become a house
hold word throughout the entire group. Eddie Dunn of Lahaina
secured news from the wireless ollice that was not generally
known and kept the people of Lahaina informed and some of this
news came from Lahaina by Q. II. Berry and others, and this the
, Superintendent of the Telephone system was unable to get verified
until some time the following day by the operator of the wireless
station at Lahaind. While the News pays the ireless Compauy
for messages received each week, and as a matter of business,
does not ordinarily give out its messages, we at this time telephon
ed all over central Maui every bit of news received, as did many
.others, and especially was the Superintendent of the Telephone
.Company obliging to all.
"So indignant did the people become at the treatment received
, from the wireless man at Lahaina that requests were maae of us
by some ol Maui's best people to-write up the matter in the News.
, This we did in what we consider a very mild form, and what was
V said was much less than what we could have said had we been so
r disposed. The wireless operator is a man whom we do not know,
and 'what is more we do not care to know him. We re
gret that the .publication of a certain communication to the
Advertiser of the 30th in which false and unjust statements were
, made, makes it necessary for us to even notice this gentlemen who
holds so high an opinion of himself. He seems to have become
i so inflated with his own importance that Esop's frog that tried to
swell to the size of a bull wasn't in it as compared to him.
We give herewith a letter we have recently received, and feel
that the same should have been dated at Agnews rather than the
peaceful town of Lahaina.
"; LAHAINA, Maui, April 21st. 1906.
H. M. Coke, Esq , Editor Maui News, Wailuku.
Sir: The Maui News of today coutains a - article headed "An Indignant
People," which sa'd article is a libel on the face of it. The second para
graph in said articie is actionable, even if true, inasmuch as the statements
therein contained are well calculated to injure a person in his business and
also to bring him into public contempt and odium. Your attorney will telj
- you also that a libel based upon false statements is criminal.
As you probably knew when said libel was published, I have many
friends and relatives on this island and your libel has been given wide circu
lation among them. '
Now you are hereby notified that unless your newspaper in its next
I issuepublishes in the manner hereinafter set forth, an ample apology and
full explanations of said libel, I shall bring a civil action for damages
against your company, and fclso institute!criminalproeeedinjs. against your
.self. , Should said apology and explanations be published, they must appear
at the heud of a column on the first page, of your newspaper, and be head
ed with the largest type used on 6aid page.
Your- "contemptible insults over the telephone this morning will be
passed for the present.
, Very sincerely,
Our friend failed to state the color of ink he desired and as we
did not know whether he wished the samo to be red or green we
were unable to comply with his demand.
A letter of apology from the Superintendent of the wireless
system has been received by us, that came without "any complaint
whatever from us to the Wireless Company, and will say that the
same is entirely satisfactory. We wish to say that the Wireless
Company has our unqualified support and best wishes, and that
our relations have always been the most friendly. We will con-
tinue to give our readers the news as the same exists, regardless of
the war paint and scalping knife of our friend from Lahaina. And
does any one believe for a nonent that a jury would indict or de
cide against us for doing our plain duty in the cause of the public?
We imagine not. The complaining: witness would be laughed out
of court and that would end the matter.
IF YOU CAN'T LAUGH DON'T COME!
will make you laugh every minute. Ihey are a perfect whirlwind
of laughter and a cyclone of fun and comicalities.

Sixth Republican Precinct Club
On Thursdry eveiiinir the llcputili
can Precinct Club of the sixlh pre
cinct held a meeting in tlic Wailuku
Court House. Tim object of the
meeting was stated by the president
after which the roll was oi.eni'd fr
membership and many availed thrm
selves of the opportunity and enter
ed their names as members of the
Grand Old Party. While' the mem
bers were signing the roll, the meet
ing was enlivened by J. K. Kapuni,
who played a flute and added merri
ment to the occasion.
Mr. J. M. Vivas signed the roll
making the statement that he did so
unsolicited and without any intention
of becoming either an nflleer of the
Club, or a candidate before the peo
ple. That when he was a candidate,
he advised the people to join together
and keep up a party, but that when
Nolley came to Waihee, he led the
people away from the principles ad
vocated, and he now is a Republican
and will work for the party.
Wailuku DWttrlct'g Aid to Han
As a result of the rffoits of the
var'ous committees appointed by Mr.
C. B. Wells, chairman of the relief
committee to send aid to the sufferers
of San Francisco, the following
amounts were raised in the Wailuku
District alone and were paid in for
the general relief of the sufferers of
Wailuku, Waihee and
Pminene 291 (10
Kcbului .' 249.50
Tot&l ' $1403.70
Aside from this amount the Maso
nic Lodg? sent considerable money
while the Knights of Pythias did the
same. Not only was this done but
many whose friends or immediate re
latives were in the city at the time
of the disaster have sent large sums
to them. Almost every little neigh
borhood has some one whose friends
or relatives are among the sufferers
and the efforts of ail deserve the
No. 8101. ;
