tor Robinson this afternoon intro
duced a bill, providing for the
payment of and fixing tho rate of
interest upon all amounts due and
payable to tho Territory of Hawaii
and the several counties thereof
and declared deliquer.t as taxes,

abolishing all perialties for non

Autos are Speeding Across
A number of narrow escapes from
serious accidents have boon reported
from Kahului and unless a change
in the speed limit is made on the
part of the drivers of automobiles
while crossing the railroad tracks it
is almost certain that a serious ac
cident will occur there soon.
The Kahului Railroad Company
recently improved the crossings
near their warehouses by raising
the tracks and putting in iron rails
which raised the road bed" up to a
level with the track. It would seem
that this would be a benefit to the
public but owing to the increased
speed with which the crossings are
now made and the greater danger
from this practice it is questionable
whether the improvement will prove
A locomotive can not stop in a
short space. The trains are of con
siderable length and if an auto does
not get by the locomotive while
traveling at a high rate of speed
there will be a wreck and probably
some one will be killed.
A man is always kept at this
crossing to warn persons of the
approach of trains but complaint is
made that some of the drivers of
autos do not heed tjuch warning.
The exercise of a little common
sense on the part of those who are
in the habit of .wrcckless driving
will prevent the loss of life that is
apt to follow if the present high'
speed is continued.
Gives Successful Luau and
The luau given by the Maunaolu
Alumni Association last Saturday at
the Armory was one of the most en
joyable luaus ever given on the is
land. .Many persons from all over
the island were present and the
ladies were kept busy for hours wait
ing on the hungry throng.
It was at once noticeable that the
persons attending the luau were of
a decidedly better class than is
usually found at a luau. This is
probably due to the fact that the
object of the luau was a most worthy
one and for that reason it attracted
the better element rather than the
Tho object of the Alumni Asso
ciation is to promote the interests of
the mejnbers' and keep them in
closer and more friendly relation
ship and to assist in the education
of children of needy members. All
of the fund received at the luau and
dance on Saturday will be used for
this purpose. m '
Too much can not be said in
praise of the .manner in which the
luau and dance were conducted by
the ladies nor of the generosity of
the many who contributed to the
success of the event.
When the public- comes to know
that all of such entertainments is
given for tho purjxse of raising
funds to educate some orphan child
whose mother was a former student
at Maunaolu it will not, be at all
dillicult to raise funds by this means.
