The Kula Pipe will soon
The annual bazaar of the Maka
wno Ladies Aid Society took place
last Saturday evening, the 2nd, at
the residence of Mr. and Mrs. H.
P. Baldwin of ripreekelsvillo nnd
was a most successful event both
financially and socially.
Ten booths of the same general
plan but whose decorative features
differed in design and color gave a
festive air to the spacious lanai
upon which the sale was held.
Many additional electric bulbs of
various colors placed in position
(specially for the occasion both in
the lanai and throughout the
grounds brilliantly illuminated the
scene of the evening's festivity.
The following ladies were in
charge of the various booths: Mrs
D. 0. Lindsay and Mrs. F. W.
Hardy, fancy work booth; Mrs. K.
B. Turner, lemonade booth; Mrs.
Sloggetl, bag booth; Mrs. W. S.
Nieoll and Mrs. S. 15. Taylor, pil
low bcoth; Mrs. 1 li. Murdoch
and Mrs 15. O. Born, necktie
booth; Mrs. F. A. Alexander and
Mis-Lay, candy )ooth; Mrs. San
tos, Portuguese ladies' booth; Mrs.
M. B. Hair and Miss Lee, paper
booth; Mrs Fantom, apron booth;
Mrs. F. 1 Roicrans and Miss
Olive Lindsay, children's booth.
Mrs, Simpson and Miss Florence
Crozier presided over the ilower
table in the center of the lanai.
The iee cream and cake which weie
served in the dining room were in
chaigeofMis II. I. Baldwin as
sisted by several voting ladies.
Doughnuts and coffee under the
direction of Mrs. W. F. McConkey
' and Mrs 15 B. Carlcv were to be-
oiitnint-d in a room nil joining the
li e eicatn booth.
Theie Ha- a large number of
well-known persons ptesent from
central .Maui, exctir-:on trains
running to and from I'aia, Wai
1 nk ii, Kiihului, and Punnene.
The amount icalized from the
bazaar exclusive oi the Portuguese
ladies' booth was iro(58.8, which
after the deduction of a small por
tion for expenses will add a large
sum to the charitable! fund of the
Liulie-' Aid Society.
The large pipe for the Kula
waterworks will he delivered on
Maui one hundred twenty days
from the middle of last August or
about the middle of December. Up
to date the undergrowth has been
cleared to the edge of the forest
Two large reservoirs are to be con
structed, one at Olinda and the
other in Kula.
At a later period after the com
pletion of the Kula line a special
pipe will be laid from the Olinda
reservoir to Makawao for the bene
lit of residents there.
Senator Coelho who has been
assisting in clearing away under
brush to facilitate the work of the
surveyor departed for Honolulu
It is rumored that the U. S en
gineers engaged in making surveys
at Kiihului have reported favorably
upon the plan of constructing an
inner harbor of the lagoon at Kii
hului. A large canal would lead
in tho water from the bay and the
dredging of the pond to the extent
of 35 ft. is possible. A land-locked
harbor is most desirable but tho
necessary expense attendant upon
such a scheme is almost prohibitive.
Large Crowd Celebrate at
Kuan Catholic Church.
Attended by hundreds of devotees
from all over central Maui the feast
of Our Lady of the Rosary at the
Kuau Catholic church was celebrated
with pomp last Sunday.
The fence around the church yard
and the booths were tastefully de
corated with Hags of all colors.
Early in the morning people from
the up country districts began to
arrive and congregate in the church
at about ten o'clock the special
trains arrived with several hundred
High mass was said at 10:150
which was followed by a procession
around the church yard immediately
'During the entire day the sale of
fancy articles, cakes and refresh
ments were sold and a large sum
thereby raised which will go towards
repairing the present church build
ing. The Maui County band was pre
sent and rendered several selections
which immensely pleased the coun
try folk, many of whom had not
heard the sound of a brass instru
ment in a decade.
A pig, cooked in Hawaiian style,
was promised the band . boys, many
of whom in anticipation . forgot to
have their breakfasts. When the
time for serving the pig came, only
sandwiches appeared, and thereby
hangs a tale.
Sonic explained that the pig ran
away when about to be killed, others
hud other explanations, but the fact
of it was that the committee in
charge of the feast had so many
things to do that they did not think
of the horn blowers.
All the boys saw of the pig was
when it was being auctioned off to
the highest bidder and milled $V-7)
towards the church building fund.
Water pipe is being laid all over
thechurch yard. Trees will be plant
ed and in a year hence the premises
will be one of the prettiest given
spots on that part of the island.
Father Hodrigues, pastor of the
Kuau Church, is highly pleased
with the large attendance at the
feast and also at the result of the
fair, and wishes to express his pur
ee re thanks to all those who assist
ed by their presence- and otherwise
in making the affair a success.
Entire Crop Disposed of at
The Kona Tobacco Company has
received a bona fide offer froth a
giltodge, eastern manufactory for all
of it's output of wrapper tobacco at
11.10 a pound. This is big money,
and tho offer will bo accepted. On
the strength of the big, lump sale
at such satisfactory figures, the sur
plus stock of the $50,000 authorized
has been snapped up, aiid there is
no more treasury stock of the com
pany to he had.
This deal of the Kona Tobacco
Company for the sale of its product
makes clear the success of the to
bacco industry. Much credit for
developing the industry is due to
Dr. .hired CI. Smith, and it is pro
bably a matter of general satisfaction
that he should reap the first reward
from the new enterprise.
