THE ELKS INVADED MAUI.
As fine a herd of. elks ns were

last Saturday morning, arriving
by the Claudine. Residents of
Maui were under the impression
that the herd to arrive were domes
ticated and tamo but that impres
sion was soon dispelled.
Leaving the wharf at Honolulu
they kidnapped a member of the
order, Clarence Waterman and
forced him to go to Maui where ho
evaded his captors at Laiiaina and
remained hidden under a bed until
the last one had left for pastures
new and then took the Iwalani for
On tiio way up one of the herd
was unusually .seasick and the
members tenderly cared for him by
holding his feet over the rail.
,At Kaluilui it was found neces
sary to repair the Claudino before
she could be put on a further run
but whether she will have to go on
the "dry docks" of Honolulu re
mains to be seen. It is however
certain that she was neither on the
dry docks not the water wagon
In the Kaluilui harbor the herd
were 'met by a bargo appropriately
decorated with trees bearing the

took the matter goodnaturcdly and

much as the visitors.
Jack Doyle strayed from the
herd and while- exhibiting his skill
as a cavalryman was hailed by a
police officer who had never seen
anything more wild than a moun

ed in taking in the wild animal
and as he was about to lock him
up ho was prevailed upqn to let
Doyle go which ho did. The Ex
alted Ruler at once gave the order
that High street was tabu and
issued orders to that effect. A
kaula was at once stretched across
the street and a notice put up. All
went well until a wood wagon pass
ed when the bovs started to take
the offending obstruction down.
As the mules started up one of
them stepped over the traces of the
harness for which the driver back
ed up by the Deputy Sheriff, de
manded $15.00 damages. The
services of Dr. Rowatt were oalled
into requisition but as the Doctor
CjUld not find any thing wrong
with the mule no damages were
paid and a discussion was started
that might have ended seriously
had not J. H. Howland started to
auction off the mule when the
driver believing things were as
suming a serious turn hastily
mounted his wagon and drove for
Kihei. About that time the town
was enlivened by the Wailuku
Brass Band an organization un
known even to the oldest inhabit
ants. The band consisted of three
aged Ilawaiians and as aged in
struments. They played Yankee
Doodle and Marching through
Georgia with a vim while the elks
on the upper balcony poured cat
sup on the heads of those below
and then threw a bottlo dt ono of
their number to awaken him from
his reverie but missed his mark
and hit one of the band. A col
lection was at once started and
several dollars subscribed for the
happy musicians who started to
play even louder than before but
as some of tlio more generous ones
passed them checks signed with
fictitious name thoy quit and went
to cash in.
A trip was made to ruuncno in
the afternoon and the Kidnapping
Committee succeeded in carrying

The social session on Saturday
evening at the Knights of Pythias
Hall was a great success. The
wholo herd of fifty fivo elks from
Honolulu were present as well as
many elks of Maui and a great

Frank Thompson officiated with
his usual skill and handed out
fines to many in a most impartial
manner, J1 my cents trom each
Honolulu member was assessed and
went into the charity fund. C. B
Wells was fined five dollars for
playing pedro and Jack Lucas was
fined three dollars for informing
on two elks who had won a game
from him. C. B. Wells explained
that he had paid F. 13. Thompson
twenty fivo dollars to write his
speech for him but after ho had
cut out all that was not readable
he found thero was not a lino left

SHU'S MAIiUlED NOV.
I am married, papa, married
To a darling Japanese, '
lie's bow-legged from his ankles
To his lovely lumpy knees,
His eyes are set at angles
And his nose is on askew,
But I know if "Teddy" will approve
'Twill be all right with you.
O, I'm sure he loves me dearly,
For lie told some Nippon men
That he'd never, never sell me
Under fifteen hundred Yen.
All our Occidental customs
I've abandoned, Papa dear,
For the Oriental culture
That, we used to think so queer.
I can swig a quart of Saki,
Rice and pork cat with a stick,
Hobble out in clogs or sandals
In a style that's really slick
Though my lovely silk kimona
Leaves my limbs a little bare,
'Tis the grab of dear old Nippon,
So I really do not care,
And I'd sooner, papa darling,
Be a "Geisha" iu Japan
Than to wed some scurvy white man
Under your parental ban.

entitled. "Give My Regards to
Maui." Tlio words were:
Say Hello to dear old Coney Isle
If there you chance to be
When you. re at the Waldorf have a
Smile, and charge it up to me
Mention my name every place you go,
As round the town you roam;
Wish you'd call on my gal,
Now remember old pal,
Wheu.you get back home.
Give my regards to Broadway,
Remember me to Herald Square,
Tell nil the Boys at Forty Second St.,
That I will soon be there;
Whisper of how I'm yearning,
To mingle with the old time throng,
Give me regards to old Broadway and
Say that I'll be there e'er long.
Oh! the Girls they all assembled,
At the Inter-Island dock,
When the Ship "Claudine" for Maui,
Left the pier at 6 o'clock.
With tear-dimmed eyes they said good-by
The parting caused us pain
For all shed a tear, when from the pier
There came this said refrain.
Give our regards to Maui,
Remember us on every hand,
Tell all the Boys at Wailuku,
That we're sorry, we can't be there
Whisper of how we're yearning,
To mingle with the Maui throng,
Good bye, say Bill, take care of yourself,
And don't forget and stay too long.
When all the fun is over and
We part front Maui Isle'
When the good ship's just, aboutto start
We'll linger yet awhile,
Till parting words, and fond adieus,
Have both been said once more,
We'll catch from the bow, of the good
This chorus from the shore.
Give our regards to Honolulu,
Remember us to Thomas Square,
Tell all the gang at 9i6,
That we will soon be there;
Whisper of how we're yearning,
To mingle with this same live throng
Give our Aloha to 616,
And say that we'll be there e'er long
