The Japanese wholesale mer
chants of this city are feeling the
tsults of the plantation strike
severely already. The first case in
which a direct loss Ins resulted
came from Wnialua. where Hashi
moto, who ran a general store de-
bided that times were bad and left
on the Korea without notice to his
creditors. He owed the local Jap
anese stores about 12,500 the chief
creditor being Kawahara, of this
The johuers ot the city are
naturally tightening up on the
Japanese merchants, but as yet
havo taken no extreme measures
in rcenrd to the restrictions of
credit. This has been on account
of the fact that tho Japanese
wholesalers, under the existing
conditions, are not sending in or
ders. They are placed between
two fires. Tho small merchant,
who alwavs has transacted his
business on credit comes to them
to buy a bill of goods and is asked
if he has money. He says that hv
has not and asks for credit, saying
that he has boon dealing with the
firm for a long time. In all prob
ability he already owes the firm
money. If given credit he sells all
tho goods that he can and puts the
money in his pocket to help him
to get along through the strike,
while the wholesaler must wait.
In speaking of this matter today
a local man who occupies a re
sponsible position with one of tho
lamest wholesale housss in the
"The continuation of the strike
for any length of time will mean
that practically every Japanese
wholesaler in the city will be ruin
ed financially. They aro being
called on for credit which they
find it impossible to refuse and
they havo not tho backing to
handlo the proposition, They can
not under theso circumstances ex
pcot tho jobbers hero to give them
crodit, whon they aro on such an
uncertain basis. What are they
going to do?'' Star.
For a Successful Meeting on
With the approach of Maui's re
gular racing day at Kalmlui, every
thing points to a successful meet on
July !!rd. There is talk of a contin
gent of Honolulu people arriving
here on the morning of the third to
take in the races in the morning,
and playing a game of base ball in
the afternoon after the racing events.
Horses are already being entered at
the track getting into trim.
The Executive Committee (if the
Maui Racing Association have al
ready commenced work, and within
a short time the track at Kahului
will be in the finest of condition.
The success of the meet will do'-
pend much upon the patronage of
our friends. Mam has only one
racing day each year, and that has
always been on July 4th. Unless
the residents of this Island show
some interest in the sport by their
patronage and assistance, the racing
events at Kahului may become a
thing of the past. This should not
be. Let us take Hilo's example and
encourage races, it proves a heneht
to -ill classes. It brings more people
to the Island, and everyone that
conies, is hound to leave a little coin
here. Asa result, business in all
lines is benefited. Races will com
mence at 10 o'clock sharp, and the
Judges will be instructed to com
mence on the strike of the clock.

Doctor Farrell has bought the
new Ruick automobile of Doctor
Dinegar. The automobile is con
sidered one of the best machines of
its size on the island and was bought
at a bargain. When Doctor Farrell
first came to Wailuku he called on
Dr. Dinegar but the latter not only
failed to return the call but neglect
ed to even speak to Doctor Farrell
since then. To those who know of
the steadily growing practice of Doc
tor Farrell, and the coolness on the
part of Dr. Dinegar, the change of
ownership of the auto has caused
more than one smile. "

senger to the metropolis this week.
Rumor has it that he and Dr. Dine
gar and some others are thinking of
starting a news paper in Wailuku
