Should Visit What the Pacific Coast region can do has
the Expolsltion. never been better told than by the Alaska
Yukon-Pacific Exposition, now in progress at Seattle. One hun
dred Californians, under the auspices of The California Promotion
Committe, and other commercial organizations of California, went
to the Exposition in a magnificent special train, and they have re
turned filled with the vast importance of this exposition as an
educational factor in the development and upbuilding of the Coast.
What these hundred Califonians have seen should be seen by
evey one. The exhibits equal those of any exposition over held,
and in addition to having most of the things that have been seen
in other expositions there are many that have never been featured
before. Every one who visits this exposition cannot fail to return
to his home with a higher sentiment of loyalty to his country.
The various govern ment buildings and exhibits are worth going
across the continent to see.
The men who went with The California Promotion Committee,
and The Committee itself, join in urging a large attendance from
California. CahforniaJs equally interested with Washington in
making this Exposition a grand success. The Exposition merits
the attention of every one, and has
all who visit it. Everyone looks

Maui For Us. The cry "Maui for us" was heard many times
from the returning passengers from Hilo who had attended the
races there last week.
The Honolulu sports realize that on Maui clean and honest rac
ing has always been the rule and stated timo and time again on
their way back from Hilo this week that they would in future at
tend the races here instead of going to Hilo where they claim the
races of the Christmas Holidays and of the Fourth of July were
unfair and a disgrace.
Dishonesty has killed horse racing in many of the states and
from what is being said by the returning passengers from Hilo it
is very probable that the racing course of that town will never
again draw a crowd.
The races at Kahului have always been won by the best horses
and while some of the owners and followers of the track knew just
what the speed of the various horses were and thereby had the
best of the situation in estimating a result of a race there has been
no crooked work here and if the present plan to induce the Hono
lulu contingent to come here next year succeeds there will be a
Lirger attendance than ever at the race course next year.

Molokai channel. One life was lost,
a Hawaiian woman.
The accident occurred off Pukoo,
Molokai, during a Fourth of July
pleasure cruise. The party was
thoroughly enjoying their cruise,
thinking of everything but of danger
to themselves. The swell came .up
without warning. The little vessel
heeled over, and, before anything
could lie done to avert the accident
turned and threw the party into

Sim m as the last of those clinging to

being brought ashore.
Since the above was set up we
learn that the boat went to Ha!a
wa and while there took a full load
of people for Kaunakakai. It
passed the most dangerous point
called Puupoi without accident.
When two miles past Honotilima

washed overboard and the boat
Some cowboys saw the accident
and telephoned to Deputy Sheriff
Duvauchelle who ordered out all
the boats of Waialua. Mr. O
Tollefsen the owner of the Rain
bow brought a load of women and
children ashore in a small boat
Three grown men and fourteen
children swam ashore while Rev.
Kaalawahi and a man by the
name of Kila stayed with the
smaller children and women until
they were rescued by the large
boat and Jhree canoes sent by
The boat was valued at $2500.
It sank immediately after the peo
ple were rescued.
