Among some of the horsemen it is
rumored that there is another dark

There arc now nlxnit twenty horses
on the track at Kahului preparing
,for the big day. This in itself is an
assurance of some good sport. The
Secretary reports that he has had
any amount of inqurics concerning
thecMule and Cowboy races. While
the purses for these races are always
small, yet tile races huv.o always
proved interesting and in many cases
comical. To sets us many as eight or
nino cowboys start of for a half

different horse, , in all their anxiety

Mr. Von lempsky, an old mem
ber of the Maui Racing Association,
and one of its principal standbys,'
went to Hawaii last Saturday by the
Claudine. Mr. Von Tempsky will
no doubt encourage lovers of horse
flesh on the big Island to either en
ter any racer that they may have,
or to come and witness the big day
oif this Island, and see just, how
differently people are treated when
they reach the shores of Maui.
The Maui News is in position to
congratulate the Maui Racing As

Visitors Climb to the Top of
the Lofty Headland.
A party consisting; of three gen
tlemen and Miss E. Cox of Califor
nia, who is visiting her sister it
I'uunene, made a trip on horse
back the other day to the rug
ged highlands, alout the valley of
Kahakuloa, which lies to the north
west of Waihee. The party reached
the pretty little valley early in the
forenoon, and after attending to
business matters and partaking of
Some refreshments a guide was en
gaged for the climb to the summit of
mi Koae, which is the name of
that headland standing at the outer
most western edge of Kahului Bay.
The trail to the toq of the hill is
both narrow and steep and the climb
as arduous as an ascent to the top
f the pyramids. Miss 13. Cox was
assisted by the guide, and the others
often had to pull themselves up over
bad places by clinging and holding
on to loosely growing shrubs and
tufts of grass alongside of the trail.
It took all of an hour of hard climb
ing to reach the summit, but the
view of the surrounding country
from the hill top was grand and well
worth all of the trouble.
In olden times Puu Koae was used
is a wateli tower, anu men were
stationed there in troublous times
to warn the neighboring valleys of
the approach of armed tnarrauders.
Somewhere along the precipitous
outer side of the hill there is a burial
cave where many relics of ancient
times may still be found if one were
bold enough to make the perilous
climb and fortunate enough to find
the carefully concealed entrance.
The party descended again. to the
valley, and after a luncheon of poi,
pork, limn and fish prepared in the
Hawaiian style they returned . to
Wailuku arriving a little before dusk

Editor Maui News: .
At the commencement exercises
held at Lahainaluna School yester
day, the Rev, Mr. E. B. Turner of
Makawao or Paia, in the course of
an address to the students of the
school made the statement in refer
ence to prohibition on Maui, that
there were 2500 voters on Maui, of
which 2000 wero Hawaiians and the
remainder whites and Portuguese.
Now, 1 feel that; a little explana
tion is due us from tho Reverend
gentleman, unless it can be that ig'
norance prompted the remark, as to
tho reason of bis-classing the

of so informing him.
Perhaps a little study of the his
tory of the world will assist the said
public speaker in preparation of his
addresses in future, more especial

would expect a man of his presumed
learning, considering tho nature of
his profession, to know whereof he

John II. Wise, editor of tho Ke
auhou, arrived in Wailuku Satur
day evening last and made a short
speech on Market Street against pro
hibition. Senator Coelbo was the first speak
er and held the crowd for an hour
and a half, speaking mostly of the
work he had done in the legislature
the past years, and also against pro
hibition which he denounced as a
scheme of the niissioifaries to deprive
Hawaiians of their rights and force
thejCountryt o a government by com
mission. In addition the Senator gave out
printed handbills giving an autobio
graphy of himself and a record of
his legislative doings. Tho handbill
was illustrated witli four wood cuts,
one a portrait of.t ho senator, the se
cond represents the senator as a
fisherman clothed in a niaro, and
holding up a squid in one hand and
a fish-spear in another, in the third
cut the senator is represented as sit
ting on a dump cart heavily loaded
and hitched to a small mule, the
last cut .depicts the senator in the
garb of a broncho buster, with som
berrero, buckskin breeches, and
cartridge belt but no revolver; and
is intended to represent the senator
as hunting for the shy voters in his

time is being objebted to by Maui
merchants. The change will bo bad

for objecting to a change which
would deprive thein of advantages
they have at. present.
