What is Best for Maui

Athletic Sports Better Than
Nowhere else on the Hawaiian
Islands could such n celebration take
plaoe, nt was held at Puunene last
Saturday. 'Honolulu can make more
noise, and draw larger crowds, per
haps, at their annual Floral parade,
but Honolulu could never give a
Inn-vent festival such as was held on
.Maui last Saturday. '' It reminded
one somewhat of the grand old

The sports were carried on con
tinuously from nine o'clock in the
inoniing, when the tennis experts
of Otihu and Maui began struggling
for the mastery of the Pacific. Ten

aquatic sports in the new tank just
The Puunene people have the
reputation of doing things, well, and
they have certainly outshone them
selves in this latest addition, to
their athletic grounds. There is
nothing to compare with it in the
islands, and it will not suffer by
comparison with anything to be seen
on the coast. The pool is 75 feet
(Jong by about 45 feet wide, with
ample room on all sides for specta
tors. At one end is a bowling alley
with the regulation length for the
The tennis match was won by the
experts of Oahu, by. 105 games to
75. When they took to the water,
however, the Mauiites overwhelmed
them; in fact they swam circles
around them. Some of the Honolulu
conticent be came a bit suspicious
after the first race, when they found
themselves badly defeated, that the
Maui swimmers were web-footed,
but there was nothing to it.
In the 150 yards relay the teams
were as follows:
' Maui Taylor, Short, Hanson,
Westcoatt. Walker, Hughes (capt.)

lore Candidates Are Coming
Several new eaudidates have risen
hove the Maui political horizon
uring the week, and politics arc
airly seething and bubbling within
From Makawao, where a rcpubli-
an district nomination means an
election, the report comes that Geo.

against W. F. Pogue, the present
upervisor who is out for rcnoniina-
tion on the Republican ticket. Also

During the week friends of W.
Scott of Paia and Edgar Morton,
deputy sheriff of Makawao, have
announced that the two are out
fter tho republican homination for
county sheriff against W. E. Saffery.
nother report has it that, the
parties seeking to wrest the republi
can nomination for the shrievalty
from Saffery, .want him to run for
another office, which fits in with a
rumor that Saffery will be looked
after and provided for.
In tho Wailuku district no pro
minent Republican has come for
ward to seek the nomination for
Counly Supervisor, but perhaps the
candidates will show up plentifully
after the primaries are over. On
the Democratic side it seems assured
that T. B. Lyons will be re-nomi
nated to succeed himself. Mr. Ly
ons, even republicans adinii, nas
been a good supervisor for the dis
trict, and, but for the political pur
poses only, there are no good reasons
why ho should bo thrown out of office.

A call to have the Bepublican
Fifth Precinct Club meet yesterday
evening and rc-organizo caused soine
stir among the Republicans, and at
this writing tho date of the meeting
has becu postponed to Tuesday

is to weed out the names of dead
members, the names of those who
have left the precinct as well as the
names of a few who have gone over
to the other political camps.

JJr. Bruns, the noted European
Scientist was in town this week.
Dr. Bruns, has been making
tour of investigation of the volcano
es and craters in the Hawaiian Is
lands, ifccently he was in Hilo,
went to see tho volcano, out was un
able to secure a guide for tho more
perilous ascent of Mauna Loa. Dr.
Bruns, becauso of his coarso attire,
was taken for a laborer, while on
the big Island, and complains that
tho hotel keepers in Hilo treated
him with scant courtesy. For the
past week tho professor has been
camping in tho crater of Halcakala
and ho makes the positive assertion
that the volcano is not yet extinct

apanese Team Play in
O Hard Luck.
Wednesday, Thursday, and Fri-
ay, the baseball team irom nseda
University, of Tokyo, Japan, and a
team composed of the best players;
on Maui, gave us somo very good
xhibitions of the- national game.
On Wednesday, whether because
they were afraid of Waseda, or.just
plain nervousness, the Maui team
could make no headway against the
Japanese, and only once in the en-
ire game did it look as though they i
would score, and then a perfect
irow to the plate by the Japanese
ecnterfioldor, caught Ayau as he
made a groat slide forborne.
The game Thursday, showed a
great reversal of form. The Maui
team were full of ginger and seemed
to have the jump oil their Japanese
opponents at all times. The Japanese
were dangerous in every inning, but
the local boys seemed to anticipate
their every play and beat them to it.
Oi, the crack pitcher of Waseda,
the man Whom the Reach All'-Amc-!
icas claimed was tho best pitcher
in Japan was sent in to' do the
twirling for his team, but he had an
off day, and could not seem to get
control, nor did he have any speed,
and the Maui team are to be con
gratulated that they caught him on
one of his bad days, because when
ie, is right he is an extremely hard
man to hit. However, bo that as
may, Maui deserves grout , credit
for winning, as theyplayed Jiaseball
all the time. Any team that can
keep Waseda from scoring when
they get three men on bases, with
ho outs as they did in the Seventh
inning Thursday, can certainly play
ball, and the Maui team as it play
ed this game would put up a fight
with any teams in the islands.
The score Wednesday was 9 to 0
in favor of Waseda, on Thursday 3
to 1 in favor of Maui, and the third
ganio is being played as we go to
