Brughelli Says He
Was Done Up.
Felix Bmghelli, whose horse,
Hurry Hearst was 1eaten on Maui,
has a kick coining .which he has
asked the Herald to make public for
him. He states that he was unfair
ly defeated on Mnni, and it looks
very much as though he was right.
The race which was advertised was
for named horses and "Maui," the
winner, was not among the candi
dates. In the program of the day,
the race is given a free for all and
Maui is among the entrants, Bru
ghelli also complains that when Cy
clone was lichaving badly ami broke
each time the horses scored that,
contrary to all racing rules, the
liorseSj'were sent back to the stables
and later on brought out again. He
also claims that in the first heat
Cyclone was distanced and that the
judges stated that there was no rules
for distancing a horse in a half mile
race. Hawaii Herald. '
The Maui Horse That
. Beat Harry Hearst.
Sometime ago Mr. A. Gross of
Waihee was looking for a good road
ster when his attention was called to
an ad. of a colt for sale, which had
lx'cn running for several weeks in
the "Breeder and Sportsman 1" He
commissioned Mr. J. Kirkland to
look up the animal, and if every
thing was right to purchase the
Mr.. Kirkland went and saw the
animal and as everything was satis-
'aetory purchased the colt from the
farmer, or breeder, who was not a
racing man, anil, probably did not
know that his colt was an extra fast
In due time after he had the ani-
ual Mr; Gross found him to be a
ery good trotter, and, when the
Maui Racing Association put up a
purse for trotters, ho naturally
wanted to have his horse try for it.
At first the Racing Association re
fused, and not until all the owners
of the trotters entered for the event
had. given their consent, was Mr.
Jross. allowed to enter his animal.
It is stated positively on behalf of
the owner, who has affidavits sworn
to before a notary public to that ef
fect, that Maui was never before
entered in a raw, although his sire,
Monterey, holds a record of having
trotted a mile in 2 :09, and his dam,
Theresa, is also a trotter with a 2: 14
record. Beyond the fact that Maui
sprung from excellent racing stock,
he was, practically an unknown
animal, until he beat Harry Hearst,
the Hilo favorite, at the Spreckels'
Park race course.

Large Amount of
When Neill Boyle left Hilo last
Saturday noon he had $!85 with
lira. When he arrived at Honomu
two hours later he did not have the
money. The question of whither
the money went is now puzzling the
Boyle is employed by Contractor
Wery, of this city, as foreman on
the contract he has to build a piece
of homestead road at Honomu. He
had leen so employed for the past
ten months, hast Saturday ery
gave him the $!)S5, in gold and sil
ver, in order that he might pay off
the laborers with it. Boyle has been
taking money to tlie laborers in this
manner a number of times, but this
was the largest amount he ever had
Boyle says that lie wrapped the
money in his oil suit which he tied
on the back of his saddle before
starting horseback for Honomu. On
the way he felt several times to as
certain if the suit was there. When
he arrived at his destination the
suit was in position, but the money
was gone. Boylo had not left the
saddle during his trip.' The suit wa.-
tied at both ends as it had been when
he started out, and there were no
breaks or tears in it. Boyle feels
positive that the coin must have
worked itself out through the jolting
of the horse.

A Farewell Dan ce to
Mrs. Yon Tempsky.
The following extracts are taken
from the report of the committee',
appointed hy the supervisors to in-
pect and report on various im
provements in the County of Maui.
Probably Lahaina should have u
new school building of V"e same
class as the Wailuku and Paia
schools. Such a building should
cost over $20,000 and would be an J
ornament to the town. This class
of building, however, the County of
Maui cannot erect without assist
ance f 1 om the Territory. , .
Plastering the outside of .the La
haina Court House has been com
pleted, but needs Borne more atten
tion from the contractor. The
plaster on ihe front of the building
being one mass of "spider web"
cracks. The contractor will be
obliged to replaster or do the work
all over again.
As soon as the change in the
supply of the water work s is com
pleted the necessary changes to the
water mains in the town can be
made, when the streets in Lahaina
can be redressed and oiled, this
work should be pushed forward as
rapidly as possible, in order to be
completed before the winter
Relocating the Ukumehame road
should be started as soon as prac
ticable. This project has been de
ferred too -long already, as the
public should have had the benefit
of the new road before now.
The much talked of HonouliK-ai
new road Molokai, was carefully in- j
spected. The grade of a portion of
this road is too low. Your commit
tee could rind no criticism to make
with the construction of this pro
ject. Natural settling of a new
earth fill is the only defect in the
road, a defect that is natural and or
dinary and that can be repaired
easily from time to time. The low
portion of the road will continually
be wet and muddy, until that por
tion is raised so that the sea will not
wash over it in times of extremely
The whole inspection trip on
Molokai was made in, either a car
riage or automobile, which, of it
self, shows the general good con
dition of roads in that district.
Friends of Mrs. Von Tempsky
gave her a farewell dance at the
Maunaolu Seminary on the even
ing of Saturday July the ninth,
which was quite a gathering of the
Central Maui friends of the popular
lady, who is about to leave for a
trip to the coast.
Shortly after eight o'clock dan
cing began and was kept up till
midnight. Everyone of the eighteen
numbers on the program was en
cored, and several were repeated
thrice as often as others. The
music, furnished by a club of na
tive musicians, was just right, and
the night of all the nights was
pleasant to the light hearted guests
who thoroughly enjoyed the gather
ing and the occasion.
Light refreshments of cukes and
ice cream and soft drinks were
served and all had an enjoyable
time till a late hour when the par
ty broke up.
The guests were: Mr. and Mrs. J.
Alexander, Mr. Geo. Aiken, Mr.
and Mrs. F, F. Baldwin, Mr. C. R.S.

District Magistrate t
D. W. Burchard.
Judge W. S. Burchard took charge
of the Wailuku district court Mon
day, having accepted a commission
as acting magistrate during the ab
sence of Judge McKay. The judge
made a short address to those pres
ent giving an outline of the course
he would pursue and closing with a
statement that he would follow in
the footsteps of his predecessor and
keep in touch with Judge McKay's
The first case to come up before
him was that of a Filipino minor,
Marcus McMann, charged with bur
glary in the first degree. Judge
Kingsbury at the March term had
appointed Judge Burchard probation
officer to look aftej: the young man
under suspension of a thirteen
months' sentence, but the young
man seemed bent on going wrong,
and was haled before the district
court to answer a charge of burglary
in the first degree. The judge com
mitted young Marcus McMann for
trial nt the October term of the
Leader Will Speak.

A Setta on Prohibition.
In the question of Prohibition
our sugar barons have one serious
phase of the problem to consider.
Hundreds of Russians have of late
been brought into the Territory as
field laborers and it now seems to
be the intention of the board of
immigration to import a large num
ber of Portuguese for field labor.
All the Latin people, the Portu
guese as much as any other, use
wine at any meal, at least iu the
old country, as well as at all pub
lie and family ceremonies. If pro
hibitiou should carry on the 26th
instant, which we certainly doubt
very much, and we know whereof
we speak, the chances of obtaining
any more Portuguet-e laborers foi,
Hawaii will indeed dwindle very
much. Let the planters think se
riously'of the matter if they are
at all anxious of avoiding an addi
tional item of discontent to the
many the laborers already treas
ured up. A Setta.
