The first blast of any importance was
fired in the new quarry of the Kahului
railroad Tuesday afternoon. About 1000
tons of rock was brought down. Blocks
varying in weight from 10 tons to 50
tons. A large proportion of the rock
was broken into blocks weighing about
one ton. The result was very satisfactory
to the railroad officials.
The Kahului railroad expects to begin
active work putting rock on the new
breakwater about April .aoth. ' The con
tract provides that work should start
April first. Bad weather delayed the
railroad work to the quarry, however.
There were also delays in getting some

A few of those interested in seeing
exhibitions of the manly art, and
who hnve been unable to journey to
Honolulu to see the matches there,
have arranged for three matches to
be held in Wailuku, Satprdav even

The main event will lie a ten
round go between DeMello of Kahu

men appear to be evenly matched
and should make things interesting
for one another. Two preliminaries

It may be that, due to the recent
transformation of a- Wailuku barn
into an "Opera House," the citi
zens of that town have correspond
ingly progressed and have become
more divinely refined and cultivated
than citizens of Paia. For these
latter citizens thoroughly appreciat
ed the performance of the theatrical
company which Wailuku so gra
ciously, (by means of the Maui
News wireless sheet;) forwarned us
to beware of, (exercising their voca
bulary by terming them "barn
Be it bo, the Paia citizens consider
themselves more decent and respect
ful than to cast their prejudices
abroad in the form of "Wireless
News." For we are considerate of
the fact that it might discourage
theatrical companies and destroy
the "Maui-ites" chance of being en
tertained. (And Lord knows, it is
dull enough here.)

The Maui News Editor,
Sir: In noting that you do nof
publish my recent epistle and that
you intimate that its publication
only awaits a signature to stand the
responsibility,'' I am very sorry
to say that, as I was merely voicing
the general . sentiment of the Paia
people, I did not think it necessary
to affix my own signature.
In fact even now I do not think
the signature necessary. For who
would think that the Maui News
was denouncing itself?
I must say that it looks as tho a
timid editor were trying to delay
things till the "people'.' forget, (for
most decent people soon forget any
snido incident such as mud-flinging
by means of a Wireless-News-sheet)
rather than frankly admit his
Polish up, Mr. Editor 1 You've
had a chip knocked off your shoul
der, and instead of "settling up,"
you want someone to put a chip on
tlieir shoulder, too. Is that it?
Oh, very well. My signature is the
chip, of course. So step into the
"ring" and knock if you dare; and
we'll see who comes out the better:
the editor of the Mam Mudsplasher
or just a plain Paia "kid."
