Ruin Came With
Washington, March 15. That
Porto Bico was governed better un
der Spanish rule than under Amer
ican administration, that the Spanish-American
war and the conse
quent occupation of the island by
tht1 United States has ruined the
coffee industry, the most important
in the island, and that the executive
council, composed largely of Amer
icans, is responsible entirely for the
present crisis, were the declarations
made last night by Luis Muiiez
Rivera, chairman of the Commission
now here. The Commission was
appointed by tho House of Delegates
to lay before President Tuft. Con
gress and the American peoplo the
reasons for the existing conditions
in the island, , and to ask for con
cessions from this country, both in
regard to the form of government
for the island and, on the tariff pro
position. Commissioner Hi vera claimed that
all the Porto Ricans ask for is jus
tice, and that the Americans are
not giving them this. lie said that
tho House of Delegates has been
.made practically a nonentity by the
executive council, corresponding to
the upper house, and that the upper
body refused to listen to tho House
of Delegates in the recent extraordi
nary session of the Porto Rican Con
gress, Commissioner Larrinaga,
delegate from Porto Rico to Con
gress, will endeavor today to arrange
for an interview for the Commission
In regard to the tariff on coffee
he declared that as a" result of the
American occupation of the island
the price of the article had dropped
from $35 to 89 a 100 pounds, all its
foreign markets having been taken
away as a result of tho American
Concert nnd hnit.
There will be a Concert and Fair
at he Alexander House next Sat
urday, April 17th. Doors open at

should not miss this chance. There
will bo stacks of candy, all "home
mado" and delicious. There will
be Fancy Articles, pretty and well
made at reasonable prices. There
will be delicious Ice-cream. The
real thing. There will be grabs for
everybody. If you don't believe it
come and see for yourself.
Some Things of Interest Re
lative to Routes.
Seven railroad routes, all of them
passing through sections of the con
tinent full of scenic and historic in
terest, are at the selection of those
who visit the Alaska-Yukon-Paeilic
Exposition. The same rates are in
force on all these lines, together
with agreements by which one may
go out over one line and back over
another, still getting the advantage
of the low rates.
Taking the roads in their geogra
phical order, from north to south,
the Canadian Pacific is considered
first. It is a scenic route of rare
beauty from the time one leaves
Halifax, Nova Scotia, or interme
diate points, until Seattle is reach
ed. It traverses the beautiful lake
regions of Canada, skirts the preci
pitous shore of Lake Superior, cros
ses the great plains'of Western Cana
da, and winds for hours through
the Rocky mountains and the Cas
cades until it finally reaches the
beautiful Pugot Sound country. No
route in America surpasses it in
scenic attractions, views ol lake and
river, mountain and valley, forest
and plain. A line to St. Paul is its
United States connection.
The Great Northern is also full of
scenic interest. From St.- Paul to
Seattlc.ran ever changing scene is
presented to the observer, growing
more beautiful and interesting as
the mountain regions are approach
ed. Skirting rapid rivers and climb
ing through mountain passes, the
road saves its most beautiful scenery
until the end, when it emerges up
on Pugot Sound, at Everett, Wash
ington, and continues for thirty
miles along the beach, to' Seattle,
the beautiful expanse of the Sound
with the pinnacled Olympics in the
distance, being e'ver in view.
Sceiiery along the Northern Pacific
is practically the same as on the
great Northern, the two lines prac
tically paralleling each other. Both
pass through the states of Minneso
ta, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho,
and Washington. The famous "bad
land" of the Dakotas are a unique
feature and far fipned Yellowstone
Park markes a delightful and readi
ly taken "stop-over."
The Burlington Line takes to the
Northern Pacific tracks at Billings,
Mont, and enters Seattle by that
route. The Chicago, Milwaukee it
St. Paul is pushing construction on
its transcontinental line, which will
be operating into Seattle before the
end of the exposition period,
paralleling the Northern Pacific.
The llarriinan lines tare for the
traffic of the South and South
west, the Union Pacific reaching
Seattle via Denver and Portland,
running through the magnificent
scenery of the central section of the
Although" not surpassing the
northern routes in scenery, the
Southern Pacific passes through a
country of more historic interest;
California and tho Southwest. From
the time one leaves San Francisco
until the East is reached, the road
is passing points famous in the his
tory of the continent, the fame of
many dating back to the old days of
Spanish occupation hi the eighteenth
Improved service will be institut
ed on all these lines for the heavy
traffic this summer.

A Baseball Enthusiast Takes
Wailuku, April !Hh, 1909.
Editor 'Maui News':
During the past week or two
many remarks and criticisms have
been passed along the line ip Base
ball circles concerning the actions
of certain individuals with re
ference to baseball matters. These
remarks have worked up to such a
pitch that unless tho atmosphere
is cleared, baseball on Maui would
not be the clean, healthy sport
that good baseball fans would want
to witness. Yesterday James
Hattie, Secretary k. Treasurer of
tho Kahului Baseball Team ap
proached me on the subject of
clean baseball, and all of the
phaFes of the question were
thoroughly gone into. I am now
satisfied that, after the explana
ions, our baseball games are going
to be conducted in a fair manner,
and no advantages ' will be taken
of each othor. Probably the re
spective teams forming the present
league have been criticized for the
action of some of the individual
players. As far as I am concern
ed, I would say that unless base
ball is played in a clean, sports-'
manlike manner, I shall withdraw
entirely from the game. I also
have the a'surance of Mr. Hattie
that the Kahului team would co
operate with ub in tho promotion
of tho great American game. Dr.
St. Sure, mauager of tho Healanis,
also tells me that he will tolerate
nothing but clean sport. With
thsse assurances I feel certain that
the public will ho accorded good
I must confess that I felt rather
disappointed in the prospects but
the frank manner in which Mr.
Hattie made his statements to me;
will just simply stimulate my in
terest in the game all the more.
Thanking you for the space ac
corded, I am,
Yours for clean sports,

At this meeting those present
