Washington Deputy Comp
troller Explains Mistake.
The alleged failure of Niitionul
banks to Ilk proper reports given
so much publicity lust December
turiiH out to be something basedon
ii hasty inference ot a criticism on
the method of making reports
adopted by other bunks doing bu
siness in Hawaii.
The following luttor has been
received by Oashier C. D. Lufkin
of the First National Bank of
Wailuku and The Lahaina Na
tional Hank, from Mr. W. J. Fow
lor, Deputy Comptroller of the
Currency, Washington, D. C. and
explains the cablegram concerning
National Banks of Hawaii which
appeared in the cable dispatches
"The Cashier, First National
Bank, Wailuku T. II. The re
ceipt is acknowledged of your letter
of December loth, in which you
quote adispalch from Washington,
to the effect that "two National
Banks of Hawaii have failed to
comply with proper responses to
requests for reports", in connection
with which you assume that re
ference must have been made to
two of the three banks at Maui, of
one of which you are the cashier.
YoiKslato further that no eomnu
nioation from this oHice has been
received reflecting upon either of
the banks represented by you. The
dispatch referred to was a mutilat
ed extract from the Comptroller's
current report to Congress - and
presumably taken from page 57 of
the document, a copy of which is
inclosed. You will note that the
bunks in Hawaii aru chased as
"Private", "Territorial" and "Na
tional". The term "'J crritorial" is
applied to incorporated banks in
Hawaii, but not national banking
W. J. FOWLER,
The following is the paragraph
refeired to in the Comptroller's
Report to Congress;
"Only two Territorial Banks in
Hawaii responded to the request of
this oflico for reports, and state
ments1 relating to the five other
banks in Hawaii were taken from
a periodical, and are necessarily
incomplete as to details.''

All Americans Promise to
Play Ball on Maui.
J. Walsh, manager of the Kahu
lui Store, made a trip to Honolulu
last Friday night on business and
incidentally to make an arrange
ment whereby Mike Fisher's aggre
gation of ball tosscrs. known as the
"Reach All American" team, could
be induced to come up to Maui for
a ball game with a local nine.
lie hud several talks with Fisher
and Jess Woods lint no arrange
ments could be made as the players
have to be in training quarters by
the first of March. Several of
them are members of Eastern
teams and there is very little time
left to get there. The team will
leave Honolulu on Monday, the
Sth, by tke steamer Cheyo Maru.
An arrangement, however, was
made to have the "All American"
team play a series of games on
Maui on their outward trip to
Australia next year. The date of
their arrival here will bo known
months ahead. A schedule of
games could then be arranged and
the local players will then have a
chance to practise.
Mike Fisher's aggregation of all
stars arrived in Honolulu by the
steamer Mongolia last Saturday
morning from the Orient, where
they have played thirty games,
only loosing two, those played in
Manila on New Year's Day. Thej
score in each of these games was 4

A Hardened Offender Safely
Sent to Jail.
Deputy County Attorney Enos
Vincent returned from Molokai
Wednesday last, having gone over
in response to a call from deputy
sheriff Dovauchelle to prosecute
Ping Wa, a Chinaman, charged
with furnishing poisonous drug to
It appeared from the evidence
that said Ping Wa treated about
six or more- Hawaiian women to
some wine, and to further some
unknown design, an innocent ex
periment probably, had previously
put msec, an opium preparation,
into the wine The women, one a
pretty grass widow, enjoyed the
wine, without smpeeting its being
doctored, and the exhilarating
effects of the wine party went a
thousand per cont above the usual
thing', and that would pro'iably
have been overlooked but for the
fact that the after effects thereof
in resulting chills, letnargy, fail
ing eye sight and other lUtendant
ills were felt by the innocent parti
cipants of wily Ping Wa's Konohi
hospitality for over a week there
after. Deputy Sheriff Devauchelle
took the matter in hand and had
Ping Wa charged as stated.
Ping Wa's attorney, R. II.
Hitchcock, put up a hard light for
his client, and the tri'il before
Judge Conradt lasted all of two
days. It ended in the cmviction

It was a great event for peaceful
Molokai people, who turned out in
large numbers to look on the trial,
and it is said to be the first real
criminal case tried on Molokai
after a very long la,)seof time, and
the fact the jailor wirelessed to
Wailuku for instructions on what
to do with the prisoner seems to
bear out the remarkable statement.
Much of the credit for the convic
tion is due to the efforts of deputy

Rev. Dr. and Mrs.
Scudder Visit Maui.
Rev. Dr. and Mrs Scudder com
pleted on Monday night a six
days' visit to Maui, which was
very much enjoyod by all those
who met them, and were able to
listen to Dr. Scudder's able ad
dresses. On Friday evening of last week
an informal reception was given
tho visitors at tho William and

Still Packing Water And
Hoping to Grow Crops.
Kula district of Maui is getting
drier every day. One by one the
ranchers who have held on the
hopes of getting the usual winter
rains are beginning to throw up
the sponge and to remove what is
left of their herds and llocks of
cattle to better favored places
where there is grass and water to
be had for the suffering stock.
The farmers still hope to be able to
grow crops of potatoes and corn
this year as it is two months yet to
the planting season, and enough
rain is hoped for by that time.
The deputy tax assessor of the
district is beginning to puzzle over
what valuations -he could justly
assess on Kula property, for the
government must have ttxes even
if tax payers are up against it.
The residents of Kula are look
ing for some sort of relief from the
intolerable conditions they are in
today. The proposed pipe lineto
furnish Kula with water would
put the nlllioted district on its feet
Sporadic, cases of typhoid fever
have broken out and are still
cropping up in the Kula district.
due to the lack of pure water.
J. here are grave fears under nre-
sent conditions, the typhoid fever
might become epidemic, and in
response to a query Dr. McConkev
stated that the cases which has
had his attention so far are well
in hand, and the fear of an
epidemic groundless. Typhoid
fever is a water bourne disease,
and with water scarce and hard to
got and harder to find the danger
of an epidemic is an ever present
menace and cannot bo dispelled bv
a few optimistic utterances from
people who may know, but may
not be aware of cases which are
being hidden from them by the
simple country folk who dread
doctors and prefer to bear their
troubles unbeknown to others,
Several deaths from typhoid
fever have happened in Kula, iind
several coffins were sent up from
Wailuku this week for the dead.
