The Vl8ltlng Two weeks from Sunday tin- congressional dolega-
CotlgreSSmen. tion will Ik- on M:iui, iiml it is up to tin iicople to
see what sort of a time they shall have while here. They arc puMit
guests ami in a way they are having the freedom of the whole Territory,
and the people of Maui shouli) not let the other islands give them
Itetter welcome than Maui does. They should le given a good time and
ineidentally an impression that our people and country and industrit
are worth the trouhlo of coming here to look at and are also worth doing
something for when the opportunity hapicns.
Mini lins her factions and irrievauces hut iloli't for a moment think
the congressmen came here to study that feature of our society. It may
lie an additional incentive to their coming was a wish to escape the griev
ance list of their own constituents. (Jive them a good time anil the glad
hand while here, and let them carry home a good impression of Maui at
Schools and From reports that have sifted in it appears tlu
Cnuntv Officers, relations Mwcen school teachers some of then)
and county oflicers are somewhat strained, and there is a tendency ti
resent suggestion or action, intended prohaUy in all good faith, for the
betterment of the service. This is unfortunate. All hands coneernci
should make concessions-lihcral ones at that and get along with tlu
nrrani?enipnts imnosed on them lv our legislators. It is unwise to find
fault with conditions which cannot lie remedied until the next legislature
is ready to turn out the next hiennial crop of laws ami regrelations, for
it is quite plain the legislature intended that the counties should lo
after schools. And the probabilities are the next legislature will give
the counties more say in school affairs instead of taking it out of the
hands of the counties altogether. In the meantime the people want goo
schools and care not a whit how it comes about, and whether furtht
improvements of the service come from Territorial or County manage
ment is quite immaterial to the public.
THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF WAILUKU
Water for With the lionds sold and contracts for piping let, and the
Kula. supervising engineer on the ground, actual construction
work is alnmt to licgin on the Kula district water works. It will be a
great day for Kula when within the brief space of a year from today the
flood gates will he opened and the waters from Pttohokamoa Valley in
Koolau will flow through the Kula district to the settlement at Ka
naio lieyond Ulupalakua. With this never failing simply to draw from
the people of Kula will cease to worry over the water question, except as
to the payment of water rates, and may look ahead to prosperous times
and plan for the future without the ever present spectre of the want of
water arising to blast their hopes and force them to face actual hardships
in the midst of the most fertile farming district of the Island of Maui.
It is one of the blessings of getting the machinery of government closer
to the ueonle. when a few bold men lookinir ahead w ith the pitiful cries
of a drouth stricken community ringing in their ears saw a way to releive
them anil eonceeied the idea of piping the sutctHuous waters of Koolau
to the dry but productive fields of Kula. No sooner was the idea present
ed than a campaign for its acceptance was started, the preliminary work
begun, the government pledged to it, and within a year of its inception,
complete realization of the hopes of the well w ishers of Kula district are
in sight. '
John O'Kourke intends to stay
with the racing game. He has re
considered his decision to retire from
the local turf and his colors will be
seen whereever the next race meet
ing is held. This is imiortant news
for local turfmen, for whatever John
O'Kourke may or may not have
done, the fact remains that he
knows more aWait training and rac
ing the thoroughbred than any other
man in the Island today and when
ever he starts u horse that animal
will surely have to be reckoned with.
Writing to a fi n o I in Honolulu
Mr. O'Kourke says in part.
1 see the Honolulu 'shirts' are
still kicking about the Hilo race
meeting. Tell Ihem to gi t a few
horses that can win and not come
up to Hilo and try to beat ine with
their old skins.
"Any horseman knows that I was
right not to run the Merchants'
Stakes over again as Weber won fair
and square, though if my mare
Kanonica had not got hurt she would
have won. The judges thought that
they could do anything when they
got in the stand If Prince Cupid
or any other man thinks that Major
Collier can lieat Weber I will wager
$1,000 that Weber can I teat Major
Collier in any race they can name
from a quarter of a mile up to four
miles. I know that Mr. Horner
would give his horse, that is Major
Collier, to any responsible man to
train. Now, here is a chance for
the prince or any of his friends who
think that Welter was not the best
horse in the Merchants1 Stakes.
Weber was only 2b' days in training
as he got to Hilo on May 12 and
was in quarantine for eleven days
nfter he arrived.

Death of Yesterday morning's wireless brought the sad news of
C M. Cooke, the death of one of Hawaii's licst known and most
respected citizens, Charles M. Cooke.
Mr. Cooke was Imrn and raised in Hawaii, and for many years lm
stood in the front ranks of those who have taken an active part in shap
ing the business, social and religious destinies of the country. He wa
a leader in affairs linancial, but never forgetful of the duties wealth owes
to society. During the whole of his business life he has been a constant
.supporter of all religious and philanthropic interests throughout the
Islands. He was a niemlier of the Hawaiian ISoard, and of Central Union
Church. A recent munificent endowment of !? 1 2",(HK) has given an op-
IMirtunity to place the missionary .enterprises of the Territory on a sub'
stunt ial basis, and the Cooke library of Punahou College, which supplies
a long felt need, is another of the many evidences of Mr. Cooke's interest
in public affairs.
In addition to his large business interests on Oahu, Kauai and Hawaii
Mr. Cooke was President of the First National Dank of Wailuku, of the
Ijihaina National Hank, and a director of the Wailuku Sugar Company
being also identified with numerous other enterprises in this County. No
man of prominence in public life in Hawaii has Uvn inure active as well
as useful in life.
Ived by ull his intimate friends, as well as his family, and respected
by all who knew him, Mr. Cooke will long lie reiiiemU-risl in Hawaii not
only as great in affairs linancial but as one of the most generous sup-
uters of all interests having to do with the religious, philanthropic and
social life of Hawaii. He leaves a wife, live sons, and a daughter.

Order of the Notice of Petition for
Allowance of Final Accounts and Dis
charge in this Estate.
On Reading and Filing the Petition
and accounts of James L. Coke, Aduiiuis
So every ' trator of the Estate of J. Kamakele, late
paper in the Territory would have
C.illed the judges all the rohlxTs they
could think of. If there was any
pulling done at the meeting it was
by the Honolulu owners as my
horses won all the races they started
"I had no jockeys to vide as one
of niv Ikvs got in jail and the I my
Drolette whom I brought down from
the Coast had his collarbone broken
when Domingo Fenvira jumped on
Banoniea and did her up for the
balance of her races. ' .
"It will he 11 long time before
there will 1m1 such purses given by
anyone again at Hilo. Prughelli
and myself gave S',7.10 in purses at
the last meeting The Honolulu
crowd brought up six horses and
when they found that they couldn't
win a race they U-gau to howl, pull
the jockies off and run the race over
'l see by the papers that the
Maui people are going to fix up their
track for a big meeting next Fourth
of July and intend to give good
purses. If they do I will take a
stable of horses over there and win
all the races just to li t them see
that 1 can lcat them on their own
of Kama le, Kula, Maui, deceased,
where he asks to be allowed 243.60 and
he charges himself with J364. 75, and
asks that the same may be examined and
approved, and that a final order may be
made of Distribution of the property re
maining in his hands to the persons
thereto entitled, and discharging him
and his sureties from all further respon
sibility as such Administrator:
It is Ordered, that Monday, the 20th
