It has become a' common saying in
Wailuku and other parts of Mau:
If you can not get what you want
in any other store go to the Maui
Drug Store they carry everything.
While this statement is as true as
it is flattering we would respectfully
suggest that our friends and patrons
come to us first, thus saving them
selves the troublo of running from
store to store without getting what

The Committee appointed to pro
vide ways and means for the pro
per entertainment of the Congres
sional parly which will visit Maui
next month met in the 15. N. L.
lad Wednesday. All of the Com
mitteemen were present together
with J. P. Cooke, Secretary A. L.
C. Atkinson, 11. A. Baldwin, and
W. J. Coelho.
It is planned to have the party
here on Maui for four days and
make the stay here as instructive
and pleasant as possible.
It is desired to have the party
divided into many small parties
and each one visit the many places
of interest, becoming acquainted
with the beautiful scenery heuc,
the industries, the possibilities for
further development and the needs
of the country by observation.
It will doubtless be of interest to
the gentlemen to know how we
Americans, by birth and adoption,
live in the far west.
The cominitteo decided to ncith
or talk business nor make com
plaints but in every way to make
the stay of the party hero as pica

A trip to the tunnels and water
dovclopmet should bo of interest

is expending millions of dollars
yearly for the purpose of develop

tracts throughout the west. Sugar

pineapple culture may bo seen
here at its best. Trips to the
Crater, Keanao and Iao valley
should bo weU'worth making and

It is believed the plan of tho
Committeo if followed will be ap

they are hero for information and
pleasure combined but no,t that
class of pleasure that requires dress
suits and meaningless fonnalitio3
The County fathers met in
reeinl session "W ednesday and
oted to ask the Legislature to
authorize the issuance of bonds for
the purpose of building certain
oads on the islands of Maui and
Ml of the members were present
except Kaiuo who is still ill.
Secretary Atkinson and a 'num
ber of prominent Maui people were
present and made suggestions to

S. Kcliinoi returned from Jlono

Last Sunday afternoon the Morn
ing Stars' defeated tho Waikapus
at baseball by a score of 23 to 1G
at Wells Park. The game was
several times interrupted by show
ers of lained which weic the cause
of the poor class of ball played.
Notwithstanding the rain quite
large crowd of people were pre-
ont, a good number of them com
ing in stages from Waikapu.
There is quite a lot of rivalry
between these two teams and it
still remains to bo seen which of
them can put up tho best game, it
being impossible to judge from last
The following was the lino up of
the two teams:
Morning Stars A. Garcia, ss; J.
Garcia, 2b; Geo. Cuinmings, c:
Tom Wilson, If; W. Hal, lb; w!
Crowcll, 3b; Dan Weight, rf; Geo,
B. Schrader; cf; .Tno. Garcia, p.
Waikapus Kona, 3b; S. Kalco,
A. Cederlof, 2b; W. Enos, rf;
Kauila, If; A. Jackson, ss; F. Silva,
cf; E. Smith, lb; Viola, p.
Tommorrow's games, for there
will be two of them, promise to bo
very interesting and a largo crowd
is expected to turn out.
The first game will bo between
the Waikapus and Lahainas and
will begin at 1:30. Neither of these
teams have won a game and it will
be hard guess to pick the winners.
The Waikapus have continued
their daily practice and so have
tho Lahainas, who have decided to
enter into the Loaguo with the best
material obtainable in that part of
tho country, and thero is certainly
much of it available.
Tho following is tho line up of
the Iiahaina team:
WmMiner, rf; D. Espindu, p
Lyman, c; Kanamu, 1st; Philip
hspinda, 2nd; AllieJloso, Jrd; Kua
ss; Profit cf; Ah long, If.
the second game between the
Morning Stars and Kahuluis will
no doubt bring people from afl over
Central Maui, and those who love
baseball and stay away will miss 1
;ood game. These two teams have
met before in practise games, each
claims to have unproved since then
1 lie Kahuluis promise to do their
best as far asputting a good ganio
goes and from tlio amount of prac
tise done by tho stars it is evident
thev do not intend to stay behind
The line upof the Morning btar
will probably bo the eamo as last
Sunday while the Kahuluis will
line up as follows:

W. Hampton, 2b; M. Simpson, c
