C. B. Wells
Made Extensive Vk t to the
Manager C. B. Wells and Mrs.
Wells returned Tuesday from an
extended trip to the Orient.
Mr. and Mrs. Wells were accom
panied by their daughter, Miss
Laura who went at once to Stanford
University to attend the commence
ment exercises there.
Mr. Wells visited many places
where sugar is manufactured and
made a study of what others are
doing in this line.
Ho was not at all concerned over
the sugar industsy of Java as he
found they were running the plan
tation's and mills by antiquated met
hods and, arc consequently far be
' hind the industry in the Hawaiian
Islands. He found the labor supply
so great there, that the managers
did not think in necessary to make
use of labor saving machinery and
consequently, do not get .all there is
in the cane.
He was greatly pleased with tf le
Philippines. He said:
"The Philippines struck me as a
great country if given proper legis
lation and the right kind of. care
from the Federal Government.
There is a'future for that place". I
had intended to travel to the is
lands where sugar cane is grown.
In fact, Governor Smith said he
would put one. of the coast steamers
at my1 disposal, but about the time
for us to start something broke and
as the sailing was delayed several
days, I could not make the trip.
. "Manila is a busy place. It looks
to me lile a pretty good place for a
young, man to grow up with, the
country. But the islands need free
trade with the mainland to make
"I haven't any money left. I
paid it all to the custom house
for what few trinkets I brought
back with me. Wo had a splendid
time. Incidentally I am getting rid
of a -cold or the whooping cough or
something like it, that I captured in
Japan, No, they didn't charge me
duty;on that. Come to think of it, I
wonder' why whooping cough should
be on the free list. It is the only
thing I brought that I would like to
have the custom house confiscate."
He was of course greatly pleased
that the grinding had been com
pleted so early this year and that
the tonnage -was so great. The
tonnage was over ten thousand two
hundred tons which is about two
thousand-tpns more than was ever
turned out .before.
He says he has nev6r known it to
fail to be a -dry spell when he was
away at "anytime since he became
Mr. Wells is lopking well in spite
of the whooping cough.

Xihei Plantation Co.
Sued by Pia Coekett.
A motion in re thesuit of Patrick
Coekett and others versus the Ki
hei Plantation Company was heard
Saturday before Judge A, N.
E. M. Watson represented the
defendant company and C. W.
Ashford the plaintiffs.
The motion was denied and the
defendants were given until June
9th to answer.
The motion by Attorney Watson
was for a bill of particulars. It'
was desired to know what title
each plaintiff had, how and when
acquired and what relationship
each person was to those whose
graves it is claimed have been
plowed up by the defendant.
The plaintiffs claim that the
plantation arbitrarily took posses
sion of their lands and plowed up
their grave yards and removed all
evidence of the location of them.
They claim damage to the extent
of ten thousand dollars. ,
The caso will probably bo heard
soon on its merits.

Stars Will Meet the Wai
The first game of baseball last
Sunday afternoon was between the
Waikapu and Kahului teams and
resulted in a walk over for the for
mer. .The Kahuluis played anything but
baseball and their efforts, in trying
to stop grounders, liners and skies
caused much merriment in the
grand stand. Although several
changes in their. lineup of the Ka
huluis were made the score of the
Waikapus tallied 22 runs in seven
innings while they only had two
runs to their credit.
The game was stopped after the
first half of the seventh inning to
allow the second game to start on
Much as they feel their defeat the
Kahului boys are more than ever
determined to win tomorrow's game
which will be against the Hcalanis
and have been hard at practise dur
ing the week. It is said that they
will be materially strengthened in a
short while by the addition of new
players, which they sorely need.
The result of the second game was
a surpriser to a few of the fans, as
the Stars are always considered
much better ball tossers thaii the
Hcalanis. The spectators were cer
tainly cheering the Hcalanis to vic
tory, if the noise made had anything
to do with it. ,
At the end of the game the score
stood 8 to 5 in favor of the Hcalanis,
having scored 3 in the first and 5 in
the fifth innings.
In the sixth inning C. Bento step
ped into the box and did the twirl
ing for the Stars and no man reach
ed first thereafter. They hit him
but never beyond the infield and
always on the ground. Bento should
be kept in trim and would make an
excellent battery with W. Bal af
the other end.
' Tho'stars will cross bats with the
Waikapus tomorrow afternoon at
1.30 p. m. and will have to put up
better ball than they have in past if
they wish to beat the leading team
of the season.
The lineup of the teams last Sun
day was as follows:
Hcalanis H. Waiwaiole, c. N.
Krucger, p. Kd Smith, lb, S. Ka
leo 2b, Ilusseyoob, II. Meyer, ss,

p, 3b, A. Garcia, ss, A. Kia, 2b, C.
Bento, 3b, p, W. Bal, c, Kama, If,
Pokipaja, cf, Parker, J. Hart, rf.
First Inning Hcalanis first to bat
Keanu safe on hit to short. Kaaiai
is safe on grounder to first. Kalco
lands a nice one over second and
scores Keanu and Kaaiai. Kalco
crosses plate on passed ball. Wai
waiole is given four balls and O'Sul
livan reaches first on error of short.

go out pitcher to first.
Bal hits safe to left garden and
steals second. Kama readier first
on error of tfceond. Kia sacrifices
and Bal scores. Pokipala hits safo
over pitcher and Kama scores. Par
ker fans the air. Score 2 runs.
