meeting to. lie called soon for the
purpose of considering the recom

Chamber of Commerce of the Coun
ty. The articles of association state
that the object of the association is
that the members associate them
selves together for the purpose of
promoting the general prosperity of
the varied interests of the Territory
of Hawaii and more particularly
those of the County of Maui. They
will protect foster and develop the
commercial, manufacturing, finan

The name that will be recom
mended for the Chamber will be
Maui Chamber of Commerce. The
scope of the Chamber will be the en
tire County of Maui, which will, of
course, include the islands of Molo

lion. H. P. Baldwin presided over
the meeting and C. D. Lufkin was
chosen as secretary.
On motion of Mr. Lufkin Super
intendent J. N. S. Williams and
Editor II. M. Coke were invited to
participate in the discussion of the
proposed recommendation which of
fer was accepted.
The proposed articles of associa
tion and the by-laws wore copied
from those of the cities of Boston,
Cincinnatti, PittsburgandSan Fran
cisco. It was decided to recommend that
the place of business be Wailuku,
and that there be fifteen members of

tary and a treasurer.
Those engaged in commercial,

Locates in Wailuku.
D. W. Burchard, formerly an at
torney at law engaged in the prac
tise of his profession in San Fran
cisco, has located and opened a law
ofliee in Wailuku.
He has been actively engaged in
the practise of law for thirty years
on the Coast; was District Attorney
of Santa Clara County, California,
Assistant City and County Attorney
of San Francisco and has filled other
positions of trust and confidence
and brings strong letters from Jud
ges of the highest courtK in Califor
nia commending him both as :
lawyer and gentleman. Ho has lo
eatod his ollices on Main street near
the Wailuku Hotel.
Frank G. Correa, the Kula rancher,
was in Wailuku a couple of days this
week. He reports the drought in Kula
worse than even. Cattle are dying daily
uud the residents are moving away as
fast as they can. The people are anxious
ly awaiting the coming of the pipe line
and that alone is keeping a few still
there, who would otherwise have moved
Who Originated Kula Pipe
Now that the Kula pipe line is a
certainty and that water is expected
to be running through the pipes
early next year, the question has
arisen as to who was the originator
of the idea to bring piped water to
This question is Jioing much dis
cussed in the up-country district

time as famous as the query: How

Johli Miguel,. the farmer from
Kula claims to bo the originator of
It was one Sunday nioning, early
last year, after church services were
over, that a number of devout farm
ers were discussing the possibilities
of rain, when Miguel told them that
the government should furnish the
people of the Kula district with
drinking water and the same to be
brought over in pipes to several res
ervoirs at different places.
The farmers, who had for many
years only hoped in the deepest of
their hearts for such a possibility,
laughed at Miguel at the same time
assuring him that they would sup
port Jiim if he took the initiative.
John Miguel promptly offered to
circulate a petition asking for water
and also that he would do all ho
could to locate water.
The result of the petition is. well
known. Engineer Kluegel was sent
to the district in search of water and
Miguel and a few others spent seven
days in the mountains before they
located water in one of the gulches.
The County then took a hand and
had the line surveyed and the legis
lature passed a loan of $100,000 for
building the line.

arrived at Kahului and the Arizonan

Motor Blazes Path for Loco
The premier of Australia has des
ignated a Codillac "Thirty" for one
of the most dillicult tasks ever as
signed to a motor car the explora
tion of the proposed route of the
Australian transcontinental railway.
The proposed route, for hundreds
of miles, lies through trackless wil
derness, including some of the wild
est country on a continent which
abounds in wild country. It will be
necessary, to complete the stupen
dous undertaking, for the car to
carry all tho essential for living in
the desert. Tents, water, food, etc.,
will form the most important part
of the equipment.
The idea of exploring the route
of the railway was promulgated by
the Australian newspapers, which
secured the government sanction and
support of a project which undoubt
edly will save thousands of pound
when construction work actually be
gins. Doubtless the premier's selection
ot the Cadillac lor tins work was
impelled by the car's recent feat in
rossing the continent from Sydney
to the Gulf of Carpentaria. At the
time that trip was untaken, no mo
tor had ever attempted tho terrible
journey, and none has yet essayed
to duplicate it. On this occasion
the route followed was practically
identical with that proposed for tho
railroad. At one period of the pil
grimage, no wlute man was seen
for five days by those in the car;
uid the blacks fled from the motor's
approach. They had never before
seen an automobile.
It was necessary for a groat part
of the distance to travel by tho com
pass alone, keeping to tho general
direction as closely as topographical
conditions would permit. Again it
was impossible to make progress
until tlie undergrowth and bush ha
been subdued with axes and knives
There were rocks and boulders in
numerable and deep and for miles
but the Cadillac emerged triuni
