WAILUKU, MAUI, H. T., SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 25, 1909
Allotment of Entertainment
Honolulu, 'I. II. Sept. 8, I'JO'J
Mr: Williiitn F. Pontic,
I iini in ri'iteiiit of your letter of
the 7tli instant, wherein you as
that Maui he allotted $1,000.00 for
entertainment of the Congressional
Visitors, and in reply thereto I
have wirelessed you that not more
than $500.00 could be so allotted.
The total appropriation for the
entertainment of Congressmen and
Other Uistinguisheu lsitors s
820,000.00. This amount was ap
portioned by the committee appoint'
ed bv concurrent resolution of thu
last legislature, as follows: $15,-
QOO.OO for visiting Congressmen and
$'5,000.00 for the entertainment of
oilier distinguished visitors. This
carried out the understanding upon
which the appropriation was made
by the Legislature. Including the
$500.00 allotted for entertainment
the visiting Congressmen on Maui,
the estimated total expenses of this
Congressional visit is considerably
more than $15,000.00, without tak
ing into account any sums that will
be incurred for incidental expenses
which 1 estimate will lie in the
neighborhood of $1,000.00 to SI,
500.00. ' ,
At this rate there would be scarce
ly anyt bing left for the entertain
ment of distinguished visitors for
the balance of the biennial period
ending June J'.Otb, 1011.
On account of the visit of Ex
Yiee-prcsideiit Fairbanks and others
the amount set aside fur entertain
ing distinguished visitors has ah
nady been quite heavily drawn up
on. Draffs of this f.und will prob
ably be made in connection with
the pending visit of the I'acilic licet.
The amount set aside for the enti r
- tainment of the Congressional Visit
ors on Hawaii is $1 ,500.00 because
the party will be there three days;
Maui is allotted '8500 the party be
ing there two days; Kauai was
allotted 6:500 the. party being there
one day. On Oahu every economy
is being practiced to laep the ex
penditures withiil the appropriation
It 'must be born in mind that out of
this fund comes the transportation
of the Congressmen from the States
and return, also the transportation
between the Islands this item alone
calls for Sll.500.00,
Seven thousand Dollars was set
aside for transportation from and to
the States, this also includes hotel
bills and incidentals. The Con
gressmen who visited Hawaii on the
former occassion came on u trail
sport, and hence the cost of such
transportation was considerably
lighter than the cost for transporta
tion of this occasion. It has been
necessary on Oahu to ask the peo
ple to lend every assistance possible
on account of the shortness of funds.
1 beg to confirm receipt today of
your wireless, as follows:
"Please let me know by wireless
soon as possible if we can hold
lamia Kca at liana for Con:
grcaaional party to travel J faun to

Many Members Join Asso
A very enthusiastic meeting of
the Maui Racing Association was
held at the Maui Hotel last Tues
day evening the 21st inst.
Five new members were elected
making nineteen new members for
the Association in the last three
months. There will be about ten
more for next meeting which will
take place some time durina; Oct.
The Hy Laws were revised and
new racing rules were adopted. The
same rules that govern racing in
the United States will govern
races here and no doubt they will
prove more satisfactory than the
rules under which we have been
racing. The Association expects to
have thu Hawaii and Oahu horse
men with us next Fourth of July
and we expect to conduct our races
on a business basis and' leave no
loop holes for fakirs.
I lie Association has had a very
hard struggle in the last few vears
to keep afloat but owing to its clean
conduct they are out of debt, have
money in the treasury and to day
Maui is tho centre of racing in this
Territory and the coming vears will
only tend to place her in an un
assailable position. Of course it is
necc.-sary to have the support of
he public and Maui has been very
i libera in its patronage and it is to
be sincerely hoped (hat the public
will manifest as much interest in
gOdd clean horso racing as' they do
in base ball, tennis, yachting, polo
and cricket. Why not patronize
the sport of kings as long as it is
conuueteti in a clean manner
