Simplified Spelling Tlio adoption of simplified spoiling
by the president of the United States will do much to hasten the
general uo of the new method of st.elling by all of tho English
speaking people. It is a step in tho right direction and should
meet the heartiest approval of every intelligent person who uses
the English langunge. The retention ol letters that tend to befog
and confuse should have no place in our lansniage but should give
place to those which clearly indicate tho sound the vocal organs
are to utter. '1 here is no reason tlyit our language should not. bo
as nearly phonetic as that of the Italian and occupy the same posi
tion in diplomatic circles as it does in the business world but until
it is made made more phonetic French or some ot her language
will be used where ours fhould.
As was to be expected tho English press have gnvn green with
envy over tho change made by the President and howl beciuso
thev were not invited to take part in tho work of making tho
change that the progressive men of England admit. th need of.
Simplified spelling has come to stay and will bo in general uso
in the course of a few years.
Portuguese The Portuguese on tho island are now of such
Citizens numbers that their strength will be fo't in the
elections to take place this fall and still more so in the future.
Eduated in our schools and acquainted with local needs and con
ditions they form a valuable adjunct to our voting population and
will do much to overcome the vote of those who are actuated by
prejudice and swayed by self seeking rascals.
A Home Rule Portuguese is practically an utiknown quantity on
the island and it is no wounder that such men as Kaluaare seeking
to prevent their registration and are following the Board of Reg
istration around in an effort to prevent their registration. This
will make the Portuguese all the more determined to vote a straight
ticket as they see an effort on the part of the Home Rule leaders to
prevent their voting and make no objection to ignorant voters of
their own party.
A Portuguese Who votes for a Home Ruler votes against his
friends, his interests and his principles, and it is safe to say that
very few indeed will go so far as that.
Improvements The County Board of Supervisors recently
Up Iao appropriated two thousand five hundred
dollars as a first appropriation of money for the completion of the
Iao Valley road.
This road was partly built by the Territory and given up after
expenditure of all of the available funds and it was up to the coun
ty to complete the work or have it in a useless condition.
As the road is one of the most attractive for tourists tho Board
decided to complete the road and are now working to that end.
From fifty to one hundred people spend their Sundays up the
valley now and when the road is completed the number will be
used a greal deal more.
There is not a prettier place in the islands thau tho Iao valley
dud when the road is completed thousands of people will visit the
place yearly. While the people of Wailuku will doubtless spend
more of their time there than other people as it is near to all of
Central Maui many people from all over this part of Maui may I e
expected to be seen there every Sunday.
Our Home Rule The Home Rule Candidates have had a number
Candidates of tickets struck off and are distributing these
marked ballots among their friends for use in instructing them as
to voting. The names are not such as would inspire much enthus
iasm in the minds of most men but then you can never tell what
the source of inspiration is in a Home Ruler.Probablv Kekipi's re
cord in the grand jury in Wailuku may help him out and the record
of R. J. K. Nawahine while Postmaster at Waihee may help him to
get votes there.
Kalua's record )n the past would make the imps of Hades blush
with shame and yet he is confident of election.
If these are representative men then may the good Lord have
mercy on tho people of Maui.

To Organize New Club.
A number of citizens of. Kahului
and Wailuku met last Friday even
ing in the Wailuku depot for the pur
pose of organizing a club in Wailuku.
II. M. Coke was ehoaen to preside
over the meeting and Postmaster
Dillon of Kahului was elected sec re
tary, a committee on rules, site, fur
niture and paraphernalia, and mem
bership was appointed.
A good club in Wailuku would
benefit the town and be a sourco of
pleasure to many.
Seven persons were before the
District Magistrate Friday on a
harge of playing craps. As no
money consideration was involved the
defendeudants were discharged.

She has now brought suit for dam

Mnrslwil Hendry Seizes The l-enr-leB
A sensation was sprung last msrht
through tho seizing of tho lug Fear
less and the dredger Pacific by Unit
(d States Marshal Hendry, the vos
sels being libeled for $15,000 in an
action resulting from the grounding
of the schooner Mary 10. Foster on
theieefin the harbor channel last
March. The Fearless was seized as
she lay at the Fort street wharf with
sails bent and everything in readiness
to pull out for the Coast as soon as
expected orders reached her from the
San Fr. ncisco owners. The seizure
was made shortly after six o'clock
and a watchman put aboard, after
which Marshall Hendry left m an auto
for Waimunalo to servo the seizure
papers on th'e Pacific, which is at
wok there in connectirn with the
salving of the S. S. Manchuria and
which also was expected to sail foi
the Coast as soon as the wrecking
operations were completed.
Tho libelants in the action are the
corporations of Pope & Talbot, Ren
ton, Holmes & Co., and Allen & Robin
son, and Mary E. Foster, Wm. G.
Irwin, II. J. Harrison and T. Thomp
son. The dale for hearing the case
is set for Friday next, the 21st inst.

MAKE REMITTANCES with Hank Money Orders. We
notice the people of this vicinity are getting the good habit of
coming to ua for a money order when they want to send
money away. They used to go to tho postoflioe but now they
know the Hunk Money Order is the best. It is the cheapest
and quickest way to send money. If the Bank Order is lost

at the time, me as follows: The
schooner was being pulled out. by the
Fearless on the afternoon of March
5, the day being a calm one. The
dredger Pacific was at work at the
outer ent rance of the channel and hud
answered Un signal of tho Fearless
to clear the way by gr'ing the whist lo
that all was ch ar. This proved lo
Ik- mish ading as the Fear es.. had lo
scrape Ihe dredger to pass and her
tow growned on the spit of coral on
the Ewa side. Here she stuck for
some hours, being finally pulled oil by
the Fearless and the Manning She
ivax brouuhl buck into the harbor and
forced to lay up for a month, her
rudder post having been damaged,
necessitating sending to the Coast for
a now one and the dry docking of the
schooner to have this shipped. At
the time of Ihe accident sho had a full
cargo of sugar aboard, some 27,00(1
bags, which had to be unloaded before
sho could goon to the marine rail
The seizing of the Fearless and the
Pacific will not interfere in any way
with there work except that neither
will be allowed to go outside of the
jurisd'dio of the U. S. DistrictCourt
of the Territory. Advertiser.
