A New Fashion. Since time beyond the memory of man H
has been the custom to throw rice and old shoes at a newly mar
r led couple as they leave the paternal roof, and so far as our jn
formation goes no evil results have followed.
This custom seems to have boon changed at the recent wedding
of the king and queen of Spain and instead of tho rice, bombs

Returning From California. Dy the last trip of the steamer
Alameda from San Francisco there arrived at Honolulu a large
number of Portuguese families that formerly worked on the sugar
plantations of this Territory.
These families a few months ago sold their belongings and with
what little they bad saved sailed for San Francisco in search of a
better field of labor, having heard a great deal of the advantages
to bo obtained in California, as advertised by the labor agents of
that State. Much advice was eiven them through the Portu
guese newspapers published in tho Territory to remain just
where they were as they could not improve their condition by go
ing to California, but they all wished to see for themselves. And
see they did, much to their loss and sorrow.
The families that returned from San FraDcisco are a penitent lot
according to the "A Liberdade," a Portuguese weekly of Honolulu
In the case of one family, its head bad been employed on a planta
tion receiving a salary of seventy-five dollars a month and when he
heard of tho advantages advertised in California he threw up his
job, despite the advice ho received from his friends, and went to
seek the fortune he had dreamt of finding in California, but instead
of the work coming to him, as advertised, he had to eventually beg
for work and then after much asking he never had more than four
days' work a week during the six months he was there. He now

'The Nebraskan, which sails from Kahului, also has booked a
number of mainland passengers from Honolulu, and these will have
to go to the Maui port to get their steamer. And that puts K.thu
lui on the map."
We are under the impression that Kahului is not only on the
map, but has been very much on the map for a long time, tho Ad
vertiser to the contrary notwithstanding.
The Advertiser will probably be surprised to know that the im
ports received at Kahului for the year 1905 were 62,()(S tons, and
the exports for the same period were 7l,f54 tons; that during the
first four months of the year 190(5 the imports were 17,350 tons,
while the exports wer9 32,350 tons.
The passengers arriving in tho port of Kahului for the year 1905
were 3,487 while those leaving were 2,495 and during the first four
months of the year 190G the passengers arriving numbered 811,
those leaving number 1,113
Kahului has one of the best equipped railroads in the Territory,
a mercantile establishment that is second to uone, and just out

Eddie Devauchelle Fights with the

Beat llhtias at Iiuse-ball.
Last Sunday aftertocn at Well's
Pai k a large crowd of people from
all over Maui witnessed a fine game
of baseball played between the Ka
huluis and the Ilimas of Lahaina,
which ended w'.th the score of IS to 7
in favor of the former.
The Kabul uis have improved a
great deal since their last game and
have put in some new men, and all
certainly did a lot to win the came.
Simpson behind the bat and Hattie
in the box form a good batiery, and
woe to the batter that, stands be
tween them for there is generally
not much doing.
The Luhaina ballplayers now ex.
pect a return game to be played on
their grounds, claiming that they
have come over twice.
Eddie Devauchelle and three Haw
a iuiis were upset in the Pailolo chan
nel la;-t week. Realizing that help
must be gotten from shore two of
ihe men made a raft of oars and r
mast and started to swin tf-an'
the shore. The current evidently
carried them out of their course, as
nothing has been seen of ihem since.
Devauchelle and one of the men staid
with the boat for hours, but seeing
that it was drifting away, they pft
the boat aud started to swim tor
Maui. Noticing that they were
being carried toward the Molokai
shore, swam in that direction a dis
tance of about six miles. Just before
reaching a hiirh rock Devauchelle s
companiou gave up and sank beneath
the water to rise no more.
Devauchelle reached the rock and
climbed upon it where he slept ur.til
morning. He had been in the water
seveuteen hours. After resting on
the rock and becoming warmed by
the sun hu a;ain plunged into the
water and swam to Molokai a dis
tance of two miles, This is one of the
most remarkable swimming feats on
record. All hope for the two men
who first left the boat is now given
up as the oars they took with them
have come ashore.
