Hon. II. P. Baldwin was tempo
rary chairman and C. I). Lufkin,
The minutes' of the previous
meeting were read and approved.
A letter from Messrs Smith &
Lewis, attorneys, was read, giving
advice relative to the organization.
They adviped that it would he
an unnecessary expense to incor
porate. This met with general ap
proval and on motion of County
Attorney D. II. Case the meeting
decided to form an association.
Judge McKay objected to mak
ing the number of trustees fifteen,
and suggested that nine be the
number substituted. A discussion
followed, during which it was
shown that in order to have a re
presentative on the board of the
many different industries that the
larger number is preferred. Judge
McKay-then withdrew his object
ion and substitute motion.
Manager II. B I'euhallow called
attention to the need of giving to
the vice president the same duties
and power given the president
, when that officer acts as presiding
officer. This was done by a motion
by Superintendent J. N. S. Wil
. The matter of initiation fees and
quarterly dues was much discussed.
Some suggested a, $10 initiation
fee and quarterly due3 not to ex
ceed !f5. Manager Penhallow poin
ted out the necessity of getting in
"as members a great many desirable
members who could not afford a
heavy tax. Ho finally moved to
make the initiation fee $5 and the
quarterly dues to be such a sum as
the trustees deem necessary for
each quarter provided, however,
that in no case shall the quarterly
dues be over $3. This was adopted.
After the adoption of the articles
of association and by-laws a "nom
inating committee consisting of
Judge W. A. McKay, J. N. S. Wil
liams and E. B. Carley were ap
pointed. A recess was then taken,
while the committee made its se
lection. The report of the com
mittee met with general approval
and their nominees were elected.
In the absence of any member
from Molokai ami an insufficient
number from some of the districts
it was decided to elect local men
to represent those districts until
such time as the' association has
members from those places.
The officers elected are II. P.

"In view of the fact that you may
be required to take a test before" a
postmaster, state what post-oflice
would be most convenient to you
for this purpose. (This test is of a
practical character, consisting chiefly
or wholly of the 'filling out of a
sample schedule of population from
information furnished regarding
typical families, and, in the case of
enumerators whose work will bo in
rural districts, the filling out of a

"Are the answers to each of the
foregoing questions true to the best

Indorsements of each applicant
must be secured from two repre
sentative citizens of the community
in which the applicant resides.
They must be at least 21 years of
age and acquainted with the ap
plicant not less than one year. In
dorsements will not bo accepted
from any person who is in any way
related to an applicant. The in
dorsement certifies that the applicant
is a thoroughly trustworthy and
honest person, of good habits, and,
in my opinion, is fully capable of
discharging the duties of a census
enumerator if appointed."
There will be no services in the church

vices will be held iu the Rectory instead. '
Opens With Unique Enter
The social season at Kahulu
opened with an unique entertain
ment and dance at the Kahulu
oiuu hotel last rsaturuay evening
Several of the leading lights made
quite a bit with the more sedate
ones by their realistic presentation
of mechanical wax figures repre
senting well-known characters of
history and fiction. After being
wound up the figures went throng!
the motions with such precision
that the audience was struclr rath
er with their likeness to master
pieces of mechanism than the en
actment of the scenes they portray
ed. This was evinced by the lauhg-
ter which convulsed the audience
during the pathetic parts. The
auditoriu-n was filled to the limit
of its seating capacity, and every
body gave vent to their hearty ap
preciation of the performance
which in turn gladdened the hearts
of the actors making all merry for
the dance which followed.
The main dining room was con
verted into an auditorium for the
occasion and the stage was set in

As early as 7:45 p." m. the dis

lights could be seen all around the
bay shore conveying guests from
Wailuku and suburban districts.
The stage manager, Mrs. Corbaley,
wardrobe ladies and property men
saw to it that everything was in
place at the appointed time, the
show people took on professional

luman magnetism in his presenta

raised his hands with fingers ex
tended, MiES 'Irene Balcom, the
waxen figure of Trilby was brought
under the hipnotic spell. Her
vocal cords.began to vibrate and
slowly she sang "0 don't you re
member sweet Alice Ben Bolt."
Before the air was quite concluded
the melodious sound ceased and
master mechanic, Mr. "Corbaley,
had to get busy and wind up the
mechanism. Then after ho had ap
plied a little more lubrication from
a long oiler which he always kept
in hand, Miss Balcom resumed
juBt where she left off and con
cluded the piece.
Another set that received very
favorable comment waB the Indian
girl Pocahontas kneeling before the
executioner and raising her arms
in supplication as tho redskin was
bringing down a huge meat cleav
or, representing the tomahawk,
which was intonded to sever Cap
tain John Smith's head from his
shoulders, Miss Irene Aiken took
the part of Pocahontas and Mr.
William Chillingsworth was tho red

all fours with his head on the
block, placed his neck in jeopardy
as John Smith. Tho meat cleaver
was descending as Miss Aiken made
ior heart rending appeal to spare

arms were slowly, mechanically

worked by ono main spring.
Mr. E. J. Walker made a very
jovial looking Old King Cole with
fiddlers standing right at his back.
Hawaiian Accidentally Killed
Levi Alanm was fatally iiijuret
Friday afternoon near the Wailuku
depot'. He wasa breakman on
engine No. -1.
After the engine had taken water
he threw the switch and then jumpei
safely onto the pilot to ride back
and couple the cars a distance of
probably fifty feet.
There were no eye witnesses and
it is supposed that while on the
pilot he swung one foot down to the
guard rail where it wasjjiuight. The
engine was moving very slowly at
the time but as the man could not
extricate his foot the cowcatcher
broke the knee and lacerated the
flesh of Hits thigh.
The injured man was taken to
the hospital where every thing
possible was done' for him.
He was taken to his home in Ka
hului by his relatives. He died
there in less than twenty-four hours
after the accident.
A coroners inquest was held Mon
day. The verdict of tho jury was
accidental death due to carelessness
on the part of the deceased.
After being wound up, the fiddlers
drew their bows back and forth
across their violins trying to find
the "lost cord" and the "jolly old
soul" took a quaf from his stino with
great deliberation; then setting it
down raised his pipe to his mouth
and real smoke exuded.
Mr. II. Benneson, the portly
proprietor of the club hotel, loomed
up largo as Mrs. Katzenjammer
and displayed artistic taste in his
make up. He carried a baby over
one arm and used the other as a
spanker. He waxed hot in his
Mrs. Walker was master of cere
monies and gave a little talk as
each set was performing, adding
gVeatly to tho interest and at times
tho amusement of the audience.
Mr. Skinner wound up and made
to wiggle his finger. This was the
comedy hit of tho evening whenMrs.
Walker explained that the figure
represented Obediah Pecklemerton,
who murdered his wives by tiekel
ing their feet until they expired.
Some comment was hoard that Mr.
Skinner did not have the right
movement, but it was probably the
best that could bo mechanically ac
