THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 1910
; A Poi Dealers' Trust.
' A peculiar cii1itiii of iifTairs
exist among poi dealers and taro
growers in the district of Wailuku.
Two months ngo niro was selling at
82.25 a bag and was a scarce article
nt that figure. Poi was also selling
at a correspondingly liigli figure.
A few days ago a native taro plant
er was unalile to find a purchaser
for his crop of taro, and. after sell
ing a few hags of taro at -fl.oO, is
quite willing to sell the rest or his
crop, rather than see it spoil on his
hands, nt any figure even if it is
only sixty oents a bag. Yet an of
fer at so advantageous a figure to poi
dealers goes legging on a short mar
ket with no takers.
Another planter with a small crop
of taro dm tind no purchaser for
his crop at any figure short of mak
a present of it to mm dealers
For taro to he selling at $2.25 one
month drop to sixty cents a hag
with no takers savors of a corner in
the market or of the methods of
That such staple food articles as
poi and taro, so generally used.' by
all classes of our cosmopolitan po
pulation, can become unsaleable nt
a time when the " taro crop itself is
short is ascribed by several Hawaiian
planters to the fact that Chinese
planters who control much taro land
rented from Hawaiians are working
in combination with poi shop men.
Chinese poi dealers have agreed
to buy all the taro they need from
the Chinese taro planters only, and
other taro planters not in the favor
ed circle can find no purchaser for
their crops even' at a time when
poi is still selling at a price way
al)ove what would be normal at
times when taro is scarce.
As an Hawaiian planter puts it,
poi may lie selling at a price, but if
you do not belong to the combina
tion your crop of taro will rot in the
patches and yet no poi dealer will
buy it from you at any figure.

How IheRolph was Wrecked.
The Examiner of August 4 gives
the following account of the wreck
of the schooner James Ilolph:
Ticss than twelve hours after leav
ing this port under favorable condi
tions, and with all sail set for the
port, of liana, Maui, the fine four
masted schooner James Holph piled
up 011 a jagged rock nt Point San
Pedro, thirteen miles south of the
Golden Gate, at 10:80 o'clock Tues
Above the low fog that hung over
the sea at the time, Captain Olsen
could make oiu the cliff at the point,
and the hills Wyond, but although
he instantly undertook to sheer off,
the big schooner was carried by the
current head on into the surf, strik
ing immediately afterward. Then
the skipper and crew saw the cliff
looming idmvu them. The sails Were
set as the vessel leaped through the
breakers. They rattled, down on
the mast rings as the schooner
settled on a pointed rock.
Water poured into the hold of the
James Holph the moment the vessel
struck, and the lime and hay and
other merchandise below deck be
came a ruine.d mass. The lime, in
fact, upon lieing submerged, began
to smoke, and rendered the hold a
The schooner had left rather light,
having only 200 tons of general
freight in the hold, and with 14,000
feet of lumber, most of the latter be
ing on deck. A part of the lumber
is all that can be saved. The vessel
wa.Ttinder charter to bring a cargo
of sugar from the Islands to this port.
Immediately after striking, the
schooner swung around with )icr
head to the north and took on a
slight list to starboard. Efforts to
get her off under her own sail were
unsuccessful, and Captain Olsen set
signals of distress. It was morning,
however,' liefore the vessel's predica
ment was known, when Operator
Parker of the Postal Telegraph Com
pany saw the schooner from his of
fice at San Pedro Terrace, on the
Ocean Shore Railroad, only a few
hundred yards away. , He wired the
news to the city, and also forwarded
a telegram from Captain Olsen to
the owners, Hind, Ilolph & Co. in
this city. The skipper in the mean
time reached shore in one of the
This is the first accident that Cap
tain Olsen ever had in his life, and
he shipped when he was 10 years
old. He has put into nearly every
port in the world. He has been
master of the James Ilolph for near
ly ten years. Before that he was
captain of the Honoipu, a schooner
that sailed all over the world.
S. Kuwada Gets Wife
By Habeas Corpus Writ.
The troubles of S. Kuwada and
the differences between himself and
a meddling father-in-law got into
the limelight of Judge Kingsbury's
Court Thursday last in a habeas
corpus proceeding brought by Ku-
wuda against Genzo Kugiya for the
custody of Shina, his wife and
daughter of the latter.
The evidence went to show that
S. Kuwada ran away with Shina to
Ijnhaina some six months ago where
they got married. The pair re
turned tp Paia and remained a while.
Ijtter they went to work on a cotton
plantation at Wahiawa, Oahu.
Genzo Kugiya followed them there
some time after and induced Shina
to return with him to Paia. When
Kuwada came after his wife, Kugiya
refused to allow him to see her and
used his influence to keep the two
apart, claiming that Shina. was only
fifteen years of age.
- It was contended on the other
side that Shina was of age, and that
the marraiage was legal; and there
was an intimation that Genzo Kugi
ya, who did not enjoy a vury good
reputation among hi, countrymen,
wanted his daughter for other pur
poses more or less shady. On the
showing made the Judge awarded
custody of Shina to her lawful
spouse, and warned the father not
to interfere in the affairs of S. Ku
wada and his wife.
S. Kuwada was represented by
Judgus Kepoikai and Uurchard, at
torneys, and Genzo Kugiya was un
presented by counsel.
