A citizens mass meeting was held
in the court house Tuesday after

presentative citizens was present.
The object of the meeting was to
receive the report of the committee
appointed to consider and report
oftho, entertainment of the con
gressional party to visit Maui in
thenear future. Judge A. N. Ke-
poikai was chosen chairman of the
meeting. The chairman of the
committee, J. N. S. Williams, read

W. J. Coelho and Philip Pali of
Lahaina were appointed an execu
tive committee with power to ap
point such sub-committees aB may

bo found necessary in carrying out
tho plan of entertaining the visit
ors when they arrive.
The report of tho committee was
Report of Special Committee ap
pointed by Citizens' meeting to
consider Ways and Means for en
tertaining Congressmen visiting
tho Hawaiian Islands by inven
tion of the Hawaiian Legislature
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen.
Your committee appointed
to consider and report upon the
question of entertaining visiting
Congressmen has held various
meetings, and has been in constant
communication with the Central
Reception Committee of Honolulu
and: now begs to say :
That tho Congressmen; to the1
number of twenty-six, accompanied
by sixteen ladies, will arrive in
Honolulu Wednesday May 8th
and, according to tho schedule
mapped out for them by the Re
ception Committee in Honolulu,
are duo to arrivo on Maui Wed
nesday May 15th.
Tho gentlemen aro prominent
members of committees, such as
tho Inter-State Commerce, Rivers
and" Harbors, Railway and Canals,
Ways and Means, Judiciary, Edu
cation, Naval Affairs, Merchant
Marine, and Fisheries, etc. These
gentlemen have been invited to
visit tho Island for the purpose of
ocular demonstration to them of
How we live, what our work is, and
what our pleasures are.
In considering means for enter
taining our visitors, your com
mittee feels that tho question of
dollars and cents can be left for
settlement until after our visitors
In considering tho Wayj in which
they could be entertained, and at
the same time shown essentials,
your committee believes that tho
only satisfactory method of accom
plishing this end is to divido them
up in small parties of two, three or
four and hand them over to various
members of committees on enter
tainment, (which wo shall suggest
hereafter should bo formed,) so that
thoso who are interested in irriga
tion work and wish to sco tho
rough and difllcult country through
which tho ditches run, may be
given an opportunity. Thoso who
aro interested in harbor work,
breakwaters, railroads and tho
operation of tho same, can be given
to another. Those who are inter
ested in tho staple industry of tho
country, farming, stock raising,
etc., can bo placed in tho hands of
a third, and so on. Wo believo
that this is tho only way in which
our distinguished visitors can bo
It is necessary that an Executive
Committee should bo nominated
and elected by you, and it is re
quested from Honolulu that the
names of thoso composing this
Committco shall bo wired to Secre
tary Atkinson at as early a dato as
Wo think that, as the timo is so
limited, the Executive Committee
should -be clothed with powers to
appoint sub-committees and to
make any and all arrangements
that may bo necessary to carry out
tho program in a manner that
shall redound to the credit of Maui,
and satisfy your own sense of self
respect. There should be no kicks, or
growling, or bringing up of com
plaints for our visitors to consider.
These gentlemen are here to see
for themselves, and your committee
respectfully submits that it would
be in very bad taste, as well as
very impolitic, for us to show any
thing but a united front in enter
taining our visitors, who should
leave us with nothing but pleasant
memories. Tho seed thus sown
will sprout and bring forth fruit
at a later date.

RECARD NOT GUILTY.
District Magistrate W. J. Rccard,
wiiu was arrusieu insi wcck onj,Ti
charge of taking a bribe had his
hearing beforo Circuit Judge Ko
poikai on Tuesday of this week.
The evidence against hint waa any
...I 1 1 yr
thing but satisfactory while tho
evidence for (the defence was clear
and open and to tho point.
The first witness for the prosccu
tion was a man by tho name of
Callow who testified that ho was
the book keeper for the Pioneer
stables in Lahaina. He said he
had had a fight with a Chinaman
and was arrested by the Deputy
Sheriff on a-charge of assault and
batterj'. Bail was fixed at fifty
dollars. A hack driver by the
name of Okamura verbally went
bail for him but thcro was no
money put up and no bond signed.
He said he was angry with tho
Chinaman because ho had been
warned that the Chinaman was to
come into tho stables and when ho
asked the Chinaman what ho was
doing there ho told him to shut up.
This angered him still more and
ho took tho man by tho collar and
"throw him around. The China
man struck him and then tho De
puty Sheriff arrested him. On
cross examination it developed
that tho fight had been arranged
by the Deputy Sheriff and tho two
men and that it was only a sham
fight. Under a severe cross exami
nation he admitted that some of
tho statements he had made were
not true but that most of thorn
were. Tho witness said ho was
not a police oilicor nor a special.
Lindsay went to him aftet the
fight and gave him five dollars
and told him to try his best to
bribo tho District Magistrate. Ho
said ho sent a hack for tho judge
and asked him to como and see
him. Tho judge camo and with
him were three white men. Ho
asked tho judge to go into tho office
with him. The door and windows
were open ho said he told tho judge
of his arrest and asked, him to
mako his lino two dollars and one
dollar costs. After this ho laid
five dollars on tho thigh of tho
judge and went out. Lindsay
at once came in and searched the
judge but did not find tho money.
While Lindsay was searching tho
judge ho saw Frank Stark go out
and stoop down. He did not know
Whether ho picked up anything or
not. Stark did not show anything
to any ono nor say ho had found
anything. After this Lindsay and
tho judgo went nway.
