SATURDAY. JUSE 3, 1911
Needs a Majority of Lorimere
REFUSAL to take up the Lorimer case can only earn the United
States Senate further public contempt, says the San Francisco
Call. That business already smells to heaven, and no man with
a regard for his reputation as a public man can afford to identify
himself with the effort to conceal the facts and shield Lorimer.
The committee of the Illinois State Senate investigating the scandal
was brought up against a stone wall by what the body characterized in
a resolution as "an unwarranted and unlawful interference ou the part
of a member of the judiciary with the executive branch of the govern
ment," but before the committee was brought to a standstill by the in
junction of Judge Petit it was able to reach this conclusion, affirmed by
resolution of the body:
"Your committee has reached

The duty, therefore, lies on the

"I believe this island territory is the place wherein is being solved
the one great problem of the twentieth century the proper relation of
races. I commend its splendid example along this line to the older
and more populous states of this Union. If the ideal republic is possi

destined to serve as a pattern for other states to copy." Hon. Charles
A. Cottrill's Memorial Day address
In another column it will be noted
ing plans for bringing the championship back to Maui. Though defeat
ed last year by Kauai, it was not by any means an acknowledgement
that Kauai had the best team,' and the Maui people have more faith than
ever in the team that will go to Honolulu this year, under the leader
ship of that dashing player F. F.
The plan of Attorney -General Wickersham of having judges of the
Territorial Supreme Court sit on the cases where judges of the federal
court are disqualified is a good one, but it is hardly possible the plan
can be put into effect without a petition going to Washington
against it from Honolulu.

HE DIDN'T WANT ADVICE
Plan to Torn Obsolete Ships Into Coast
The plan of using Uncle Sam 'a
obsolete battleships as million-dol
lar forts at the entrances of harbors
the latest project advanced to
save from the Bcrap heap the mil-
ions which have gone into these
monsters of the sea.
That there are vessels in service
now ht lor just such a purpose is
declared by Rear-Admiral Francis
Bowles, ex-chief naval construct
or United States Navy, and now of
the Fore River Ship Building Com
pany in Quincy, who says: "The
Indiana, the Massachusetts and the
Oregon are none of them satisfactory
and might Jbe used for the purpose
of coast defense when placed within
an artificial island.
There are also some monitors
fit only for the same purpose. The
Puritan, the Amphitrite, the Ter
ror and the Miantonomah are the
four monitors I have in mind.
"They would be especially well
adapted to the proposed purpose of
coast defense. A fifth monitor which
is in the same class with the others
is the Monterey. She is located on
the Pacific Coast."
The plan which has been suggest
ed is to embed ships provided with
brst-class guns and good armor
deck in sand upon a shoal so as to
thus leave an island around them,
thus converting them into forts.
These, it is claimed, would be
valuable for const defense, as valu
able, it is said, as a full fledged bat'
tleship of the latest pattern, since a
coast defense vessel has no need of
going from one place to another.
In fact, it is asserted that except
for its immobility a battleship thus
converted into a fortress would be
in many ways far superior to the
ordinary fighting vesseL A great
argument in favor of the scheme as
urged is that such a fortress banked
up as it would be by sand or soil,
would prove immune to torpedoes,
or to any other missiles directed
against it below the waterline.
The idea of converting our old
battleships into forts is declared to
also have the advantage of putting
the antiquated vessels, whichv have
cost the United States government
so many millions of dollars, to ser
The new plan suggests that in
stead of being chalked with the
word Scrap," or used as a target
for a few hours' practicing, after
they had become useless as units of
the great fleet, these old-time iron
clad fighting machines should be
turned into permanent and valuable
aids to our defence.
The First Excursion.
' The excursion last Sunday from
Honolulu, under the auspices of the
Service Association was a grand suc
cess. One hundred and fifty-six peo
ple arrived early Sunday "morning
on the Likelike, and were met at
the boat by a special train Break
fast was waiting in Wailuku. After
breakfast the party went their
several ways, and all were anxious
to see as much of Maui in one day
as was posssible. Some hired Autos
and went as far as Lahaina. Others
brought motorcycles with them, and
so were more or less independent.
The bulk of the party went up into
lao Valley, however, and five mem
bers of Trail and Mountain Club
succeeded in getting to the top of
the needle, where they found the
bottle that had previously been left
there. They added their names to
the ones already in the bottle and
put it back to be found by the next
to scale the slope.
"Jimmie" Wilder was with the
party and he did good missionary
work for the boy scout movement
on the trip. The Honolulu press
was represented by George Hen
shall of the Star, Bill Langton, of the
Paradise of the Pacific and Phil
Danky of the Bulletin.
Professor Bryan says lao valley
should . not be called the grand
canyon of Maui, but the grand
Canyon of the world.

Maui Polo Team.
The first meeting of the season of
the Makawao Polo Club was held
on Ihursday evening at the resi
dence of Mr. D. C. Lindsay at Paia.
After the reading of the minutes
of the last meeting the following
officers were elected for the ensuing
year: L. Von Tempsky, president;
E. A. Peck, vice-president; D. C.
Lindsay, secretary and treasurer;
Frank Baldwin, Captain.
It was unanimously decided to
send a team again this year to
Honolulu, to represent Maui in the
inter-island games, and Mr. II. W.
Rice was appointed manager and
requested to correspond with the
clubs of the other islands to arrange
for details in connection with the
series of match games. The care of
the ponies was again placed in the
able hands of our genial vet, "Fitz."

It may confiently be expected that
the Maui chargers will take the field

As there is an abundance of new

ample time to polish the old, and
lick the raw material into shape,
with the result that, at Moanalua
next August, Maui should be able
to allow her full confidence to re

sports invariably do.
The gamblers, who rely more on
crooked playing to secure them
their reward than any skill they
have, and whose crooked work is so
raw that it can only be used upon
