All in all the people of Maui with their Honolulu and llilo guests en
joyed the Fourth of July eelel ration in fine style. The horse racing pro
gram at Spreckcls' Park wan pronounced to le the liest meet ever held
there, and the racing was conducted in a way which reflected credit on
the officers of the Maui Racing Association. More flags and bunting anil
much more fireworks and noise would have suited our old-fashiohed

a pretty good one for the nation at large. (
If the colonel intends to make open war on the present occupant of the
White House, he will have to educate the people out of the idea of giving
the next man a fair show In-fore knocking him, and the task we opine
will be a hopeless one. Nevertheless, with the colonel calling to his
cohorts from the middle of the stage there will lie no lark of readable
telegraphic news while the show lasts.
Waihee Carried For
The campaign Committee of the
Maui Prohibition League is keeping
the stump speakers busy addressing
gatherings in favor of prohibition.
Last Saturday D. Kalauokalani, the
president of the home rule party,
who is' also advocating prohibition
arrived and addressed a large gatln-r-ing
on Market Street, Wailuku- He
spoke for an hour and his remarks
were received with respectful atten
tion by the audience, who were
principally home rulers. Wm.
' White followed and some of those
present began making interruptions.
After White had spoken Mr. J. K.
Kahookele took the rostrum, but the
crowd grew ' boisterous and while
Kahookele was still speaking some
unseen person threw a stale egg at
him, which fortunately for the
speaker missed the mark and spat
tered on an innocent Japanese by
stander. Mr. Jas. X. K. Keola, local mana
ger of the prohibition campaign,
then mounted the rostrum, and
closed the specc.hmaking after hand
ing out a few hot remarks at the
disturbers. There were a few others
intending to speak who refrained
from doing so when they saw the
crowd was in no mood to receive
Sunday the campaigners held
very successful meetings in Sreckels
vile and in Kahului. In loth plac
es prohibition is reported to be gain
ing ground by leaps and bounds.
' Monday, the fourth of July, pro
hibition speeches were made at Paia
to a large crowd of all nationalities
by D. Kalauokalani, Wm. White,
Abraham Fernandez of Honolulu
Tuesday evening the prohibi
tionists held a very successful meet
ing in the Waihee Church. At the
close of D. Kalauokalani' speech,
he invited all who desired prohibi
tion to stand up ami the entire au
dience rose to their feet, excepting
Dan Mahukli the Waihee democrat,
who accompanied Senator Coclho
on his second tour around Maui in
the interest of the liquor people.
Mr. White then took the rostrum
and at the end of his speech he in
vited those who opjxised Mr.
Wooley's doctrine to stand up and
show their colors, and neither Dan.
Mahuka nor the president of the
Anti-prohibition Club would stand
Dan. Mahuka states, however,
that he does not proposed to dance
David White Buried
' With Military Honors.
David, son of Rev. D. W. K.
White, passed away at 10 p. m. on
July 4.- The funeral took place on
Wednesday ufternoon, July 6. After
prayers and singing at "he parson
age, the cortege marched to Waince
Church. Conigany L. was at the
head of the procession, with arms
reversed, Lieutenant Kaluakini in
command. The casket was draped
with the American flag. The pall
learers were six members of Com
pany L. Among the floral offerings
at the church were alcautiful cross
and tasteful wreaths.
After Hawaiian Hinging by the
choir and a wriptun lesson, Rev.
Rowland B. Dodge of Wailuku gave
a very comforting address. Rev. C.
Ci. llurnhain of Iahaina spoke of
the mysteries of death and of God's
Providence. One of these, mysteries
was the early decease of David
White, who was fitting himself to
be a physician of the body, and of
the soul. Shortly before hi death
he said; "I do not know why I
have to go." An English priest
selected as one of the most consoling
texts, "His servant shall serve
Him." And so our departed young
friend may still lie serving God. A
liereaved Scotch mother said: "God
has taken my hoy for some grand
work in the other w rld . ' ' We rcj ict
that this young man has gone where
God's servants shall still serve Him
After Mr. Burnham's address, a
prayer, and remarks by Rev. Kau
meheiwa, the Hawaiian version of
"Nearer, my God, to thee" was
sung. There was a brief eoniniital
service at the grave in Waineo (V
metery, and three volleys were fired
by Company L-
to the prohibition music at any time,
and of the crowd present there wen
only fifteen voters, the remainder
lieing entirely women and minors,
and as two are confirmed liquor
men, only an unlucky thirteen
went over to the prohibition cause.
Nevertheless, the prohibition cam
pnighers seem very much pleased
over the results of the Waihee meet
ing, and are counting on gelling a
big vote in that precinct.
Wednesday evening the campaig
ners held a good meeting m the
Waikapu Church. 1). Kalatiokala
ni delivered the principal address
and Win. White otherwise known as
Oily Bill by special requost had the
honor of saying the opening prayer,
which was gracefully said and caus

A Victim Gets Twenty-
One Knife Cuts.
That Hisasuke Ishikawa, who
was once Judge McKay's milk
man and yard boyhad a grudge
against Matsumura is the only ex
planation the police can offer for
the cutting up or chopping up the
latter received, it is alleged, at the
hands of the former.
Luckily for Matsumura the
twenty-one cuts he received the
evening of the fourth of July were
only deep aud painful and not
dangerous. One cut or stab had
penetrated to the victim's lung
and another bad gone clean
through his buck until the kidneys
were exposed, and the nineteen
others criss crossed one another in
various parts of the anatomy of
Matsuiuura was near the uppei
end of Vineyard street, Wailuku
the evening of July fourth when
he was viciously attacked with a
knife as he claims by Hisasuke,
and the noise of the struggle be
tween the two attracted other
Japanese neighbors who ran to
part the combatants, and accord
iHg to their story they approached
Hisa-uke carefully, for fear he
might use the knife on them, a;id

say the knife mid to have been

The day following the prisoner
was haled before Judge Crockett,
the acting district magistrate in
the absence of Judge McKay who
is away on a vacation, to answer
the charges booked against him by
the Milice. Hisasuke waived ex-
aminatioi. and was committed for
trial ot the October term of the
Circuit Court. Hail for appearance
was set at 1200. The friends of
the accused promptly furnished
the required bond, and the police
gave him his liberty, although Ids

Maui Shows Clean Sport.
Anyone who attended the Maui
races and saw the class of sjxirt put
up by the people of the Valley Isle
must have come away Wondering how
it is that Honolulu, with such a large
population and with a splendid track
it Kapiolani Park, can not do any
thing in the horse racing line. Every
year the Honolulu sports have to go
away from home, and the capital is
aS dull as ditch water in the way of
races on July 4 and New Year's Day.
There is some talk of establish
ing a triangular series of races to take
place on Oahu, Maui and Hawaii.
Such a scheme would appeal to many
people, and men who at present can
not afford to keep horses would, if
assured of four meets a year, soon
start up stables. At present it is'
only possible for two or three men
to attempt to take part in the racing
game here, as the meets are so few
and far between.
If a Hawaiian Jockey Club were
started up, and the proper men put
at the head of affairs, the game
should revive quickly on Oahu.
There is nothing to stop the sport
being clean if the officials are on to
the game and determined from the
first to rule off anyone who does
any crooked work.
The-Maui races were really good,
and although the track is a small
one, there were no accidents to mar
the day. Some of the officials were
a trifle new to the game, but they
did their liest, . and that was good
enough. The sfiort was clean, and
although some people insinuated
that Telephone Tenyti should have
I ten ten Aidion in the thirteenth race,
it was palpable after the finish that
Telephone Tenyu had a bad leg and
was broken down. That some peo
ple were wise to the fact In-fore the
race was proved by the way they
Should racing lie reestablished on
Oahu there should lie some good
sport seen, and with Maui and Ha
waii also in the circuit, the fun
should he great. Hawaii went strong
for a long time in the racing line,
but it became too much of a one-
man concern after a while, and one
niertintf. that was nartii-ularl v noted
i - r
for some strong arm business, wiped
the siKirt out for a while.
With straight men at the head of
affairs, and comjR-tent stewards who
will watch every race, there should
not lie any trouble us regards keep
ing the sport clean, and the people
of Honolulu should lie able to see
a good day's sport without having
to travel miles by steaimer. -Bulletin.
