THE MAUI NEWS
-SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2?,, 1 909
Of The County Will be
' At the mectint? of the Htiwiw of
Maui held in the Town Hall last
Thursday evenhiK steps were taken
to form a Ohamboi- -if Commerce for
the County. 1
It is questionable if Maui hnxevcr
held n more harmonious meeting
nor lias a. inn-ling in years been
concluded with such a gt'neral feel
of good fellowship an was manifested
at the conclusion of this meeting.
If thesaino spirit of fairness pre
vails in future as prevailed at tliis
meeting it is safe to say that the
Chamtier of Commerce of Maui will
he a power in the community. We
believe this will lie the cn
The minutes in full are as follows:
Mr. 'Williams: "Gcntlcnieii, the
purpose of this meeting is to organize
a Chamber of Commerce for the Is
land of Maui. The suggestion came
from the Chamber of Commerce of
Honolulu. The matter has been dis
cussed with many of the business
men of Maui and it is agreed that
it would be a good thing for the
Community. A circular letter call
ing for this meeting w as sent out two
or three weeks ago. Before any
action can be taken, however, it is
necessary that we elect n Temporary
Chairman' and a Temporary Secre
tary, and I would like to nominate
Mr. II. P. IJaldwin Chairman of
, this meeting.''
Motion put and carried.
Mr. Haldwin: ( Introduces Rules
and Regulations Honolulu Chamber
"(ientlemen, 1 would like to say
a few words in regard to the object
and scope of business of a Chamber
of Commerce of any community;
they keep in touch with the various
branches that come under that term ;
different lines of business, different
lines of work, various problems, etc.
The . Honolulu Chamber of Com-
incce takes up and includes in its
seoix- of -work, Federal legislative
matters, Lighthouse business, Post
OHice business, Hawaii Educational
system, Territorial Finances, and
many other items of public interest,
reports on which are all included in
the annual report of the ClminU-r
The Chamber of Commerce as
found on the Mainland is a very
'important organization. 1 had the
pleasure of attending a meeting of
the Chamber of Commerce at Ueve
land (I have a son who is a member
of that organization) and I would
say that there is a very large num
ber of t he prominent people of Cleve
land that U-long to that organiza
tion. They make known the needs of
the City to the Chamber of Com
merce and they get them attended
to, that is to say, that when they
petition the State legislature or
Congress on important matters they
are Umnd to make them sit up and
take notice of their petition. They
own tlieir own buildings and here
they take in friends; they meet
people. They had a joint rciort of
what they had done during the past
year and I was very much interest
ed in their annual report. I brought
one home with me, but 1 do not
remember whether I brought it to
Maui, but I nm quite sure that 1 left
it with one of the N'ewsaicrs in
Honolulu. It is a very powerful
organization. There was one in
stance" of a Railroad Company, tin
fastest in the world, 1 think, (ask
Mr. Williams, he might dispute, that
point), anyway, they proposed put
ting a trnek through a certain por
tion of the city ami this Chamber of
Commerce jietitioneil against it and
got the location altered. Whenever
they get up and tiign a jx-tition it is
always listened to. I don't know
how much we could do here, but if
we can do as much as the Chamltcr
uf Commerce of Honolulu we shall
probably l over a wide ncnpc of Work
I therefore think that it is a very
sound and w ise thing for us to or
ganize. Thid book here contains re-

If the petition which has been
forwarded to the Secretary of the
Interior, at Washington, by The
California Promotion Committee,
and which was numerously signed
by commercial organizations and
others interested in the matter, be
granted, the roads, or certain of
them, in Yosemite National Park
will lie open to the limited use of
automobiles, and many people who
otherwise would not be able to visit
the park will view that great scinie
Early last May The Committee
prepared a petition setting forth
the fact that present restrictions
worked a hardship in keeping
many people out of Yosemite Park,
and asked that these restrictions
be removed or modified. The peti
tion recites present conditions and
"We therefore petition that such
restrictions be removed, fn a meas
ure, and that automobiles, under
proper rcftrietmns as to ppeed,
time of travel and condition of
machine, be permitted to traverse
the roads of Yosemite National
This petition has been circulated
I over the State, among the
various commercial organizations,
mid has been signed by official of
these bodies. It is hoped by thiwe
interested in the matter, that' the
present restrictions will be so
modified that certain roads, at
least, will be open for machines to
reach the center of the valley where
the hotel is located.

commerce, committees on finances,

NOMINATION FOR SECRETARY
Mr. Williams moved that Mr.
Lnfkin act as Temporary Secretary
at this meeting. Seconded by W.
O. Aiken. Motion put and carried.
Mr. Pciihallow moved that we estab
lish a Chamber of Commerce for the
Island of Maui.
McKay: "Would it not be well
to make that the County of Maui?"
Mr. Pciihallow accepted that as an
amendment. Motion "That we
establish a ('handier of Commerce
for the County of Maui" was put,
seconded and carried unanimously.
' Mr. Williams: "Mr. Chairman,
I beg to move that a committee of
seven be apxniitcil tor the purpose
of drawing tip Rules of organization
and l!y Laws and to prepare papers
for Incorporation. 1 would like to
say, gentlemen, that the Chamber
of Commerce ulmiit to lie started, is
the first non-political organization
in which the business men of Maui
can get together and unite for their
common good. This matter ha
been discussed with people of liana,
Lahaina. and district between tin
two mountains. I believe that if
this move goes into wffeet, it will be
the first time that the business men
of Maui will have united on any
thing and I Ahink it is alnnif time.
The Chamber of Commerce of Ho
nolulu has done much to unite the
people of Honolulu and now I would
like to see a united Maui.
Motion "That a committee o,
seven lie appointed to draw up Rules
of Organization, J y Iuvs and to
prepare. iajers for Incorporation.'
Put and carried.
Judge Kejioikai moved that the!
