Boom the Island.
While nations are working through their various diplomatic
corps for universal peace and for a better understanding be
tween peoples, the island of Maui is doing her small share to
wards removing the local pretljudice that exists between the surround
ing islands. The one thing in which all people have common interest is
sport, and working along these lines Maui is becoming better known to
the people of the other islands. The recent celebrations have proved
without doubt that Wailuku is becoming recognised as one of the impor
tant centers. While we have attractions here that far and away surpass
many of those that are boomed elsewhere, it is only on occasions like
those that have just passed that they are ever heard of. The time has
come now when some of the public spirited men of the island should
get together and see that we are heard of during the year. What we
want here is some kind of a promotion committee who will handle the
work for the good of all. If this were done there is every reason to be
lieve that some of the tourist trade could be diverted here instead of us
only getting a few stray folks who want to see the big mountain. This
sight as a tourist attraction is one of the marvels of the world, and if it
was properly boomed would be the means of many more people visit
ing the island. Everyone who has any interest should get in and put
their shoulders to the wheel. Wailuku has at last reached that stage
when she must be recognised as something more than a village. It is
up to us to do it, however, for if we do not, then things will still go on
in the same old way. Now is the time to start while the iron is still hot.
The Arabs had a custom that as
and was staying in their houses, and
immune from all danger at their hands. Wailuku entertained a gentle
man on these same terms during the last recent celebration, but he vio
lated all ethics. It seems unfortunate that Wailuku should have the
bad luck to strike the only bad cocoanut under the tree.

cure of their property after deatli
they were happy in the knowledge
that it would be in the hands of a man
who would look after the widow
and orphans as he would have done
it himself. It is safe to say that in
many instances Mr. 'Smith proved a
wiser trustee than the man who put
the property in his care. And no
man ever questioned his intcrgrity.
Why Mr. Smith was in the senate
during a session when graft stuck
out like a wart on a nose. And he
went through without a suspicion,
Tile other change in the affairs
conies in the incorporation of the
Waterhouse Co. The capital is
$140,0(X) and all held by four men
who were originally with the old
house of John Thomas Waterhouse
on Queen Street. This company
will not do a trust business. At
present it has a numU'i of agencies
which, include hardware and dry
goods, cash registers and Burroughs
Adding machines. As the capital
Buliscrilxd is without water and re
presents the actual value of the
business of the Wuteihtiii-"' Com
pany the suggestion is made that
the National Cash Register and the
Burroughs Adding machine may
have had a hand in the upbuilding
of it. The nun comprising the
firm are young and ambitious. May
success follow tliem. J!.v the way
the founder of the Waterhouse
business back in the early 50's was
in business at Idiaina. Perhaps
you remember him; a fine looking
old gentleman with a dialect that
would pass current in Yorkshire
but I am told became from llohart,
Tasmania in '51. It is said of him
that his attention to the details of
his business was so close that he
one day missed a wheelbarrow from
his stock and the clerks were unable
to say to whom it, had la-en sold.
One of them remembered selling it
but not the name of the buyer. He
ordered his bookkeejRT to add it to
the quarterly statement of every
man whose name was on the Uxks
us having bought anything' during
Maui, Hawaii, as second-class matter.
JULY 8, 1911
long as a man had eaten their salt,
enjoying their hospitality, he was
the month. Bills were rendered
quarterly in those days, all but one
of the customers paid for a barrow
without a kick.
The great auto contest in the
theaters is over and Punchbowl,
after being stirred from center to
circumference, is in its normal
state. The first prize was won by
A. 1'. C. Correa, a young clerk in
Elders. He 'is new to Honolulu
having reached here on the Orteric
and by close attention to his duties
and his sartorial affairs he has
reached the high position of cashier
in this big shop. He deserves a lot
of credit though he came backed
by a very good education in his
mother tongue. When he first
entered the employ of Ehlers he
was seen in the intervals when the
cash baskets from the salesladies
were not working, studying from an
English dictionary and grammar.
He never lost a minute and it is
said of him that when Cupid's ar
row pierced his best coat it went
through a copy of Swinton. Now
he speaks English with only ordin
ary foreign accent, has a good po
sition, a wife and baby and is the
proud possessor of an Overland
from the garage of von Hamm
Young. Also he is the envy of half
the residents of the slope. I am in
formed that his contest cost in dol
lars from his personal exchecquer
something like two thousand. The
price less discount for which one
may he Ixnight at the garage is
about eight hundred. It seems to
have been a case of highest bidder.
I am also informed that the man
agement of the amusement company
was offered by three different per
sons the sum of one thousand dol
lars for sufficient votes to make
them winner of the machine.

Mecoto, 1st.; Izaldivar, entered by
A. McPhee, 2nd. Time G0 3-.r.
The smarter had great difficulty in
getting the horses into line and time
after time a false start was rung up.
Athlonc was the chief offender and
his rider did not seem to be able to
manage him at all. Finally the
horses came to the post and down
went the flag. The recall bell in
the judges stand rang a few half
hearted strokes and the boy on Ath
1 me thought It was the recall signal.
The other two horses were racing
for home however. It was Major
Colliers raw from the start and he
came in an easy winner.
3rd. Race Trotting and pacing
Free for all, best three in five. Half
mile heats. Purse $500.00. Dencr
vo, entered by L. Morrcll, 1st;
Maui, entered by A. Gross, 2nd.
This was left for two horses to
fight out Abdino failing to put in
an appearance. In the hrst beat it
appeared for a time as though Maui
would come home with the honors
but when they got at the back of
the track Denervo took charge and
came in an easy winner. The time
was 1 ni. 12 1-5 s. The second
beat was another easy win for Den
ervo who made faster time leaving
the half mile behind him in 1 m.
10 3-5 s. It was in the third heat
that he showed what he really could
.do however and he slipped over the
ground in the" fast time of 1 m.
6 2-5 s.
4th. Race Running Race. One
mile dash, free for all. Purse $750.00
Merlingo, entered by John O'Rourkc,
1st; Copit, entered by A. McPhee,
Major Collier failed to show up
in this event and the greatest inter
est was shown in the go between the
remaining two. When the flag fell
Copit jumped out and made the
pace a cracker running two or three
lengths in front of Merlingo. The
mare could not hold the pace, how
ever and cracked up on the second
turn. Merlingo won as he liked.
5th. Race. 14. 2 hands and under
half mile dash, free for all. Purse
Wila, entered by Ilauki, 1st;
Waihee Boy, entered by Manuel
Gomes, 2nd: Dora D. entered by
J. M. Medeiros, 3rd. Time 57 l-5s
Two of those sporting colors were
forced to retire to the saddling pad
dock owing to the fact that they
could not walk under the measuring
stick at the height fixed. Rewco,
one of those who had to retire was
a hot favorite and the crowd were
very much disappointed. Tlie re-
maining three put up a fine race
however, and the crowd forgot all
about their favorite when they saw
the three ponies come neck and
neck up the Btraight.
6th. Race One mile dash.
Hawaiian bred. $300.00 to winner;
$50 to second horse. Major Collier,

Spring Ban, entered by Louis Mor
rel, 1st; Merlingo, entered by John
The interest in this race centered
around Spring Ban and Merlingo
and there was a good real of
speculation as to which would 15
the first to catch the judges' eye.
The run Merlingo had to put up
against Copit in the mile told and
Spring Ban won comfortably after a
8th. Race Half mile dash. Maui

ner; $25 00 to second horse. Poni
Moi, entered by Manuel do Rego,
1st; Beeswing, entered by L. von
Tempsky, 2nd; Jubilee, entered by
A. McPhee, 3rd.
Being a maiden race and for Maui
bred horses considerable interest
wus unanifested over the result of
this dash. Jubilee was picked out
as a hot favorite bv most of the
crowd. It was a good race but the
crowd picked the wrong horse.
When they passed the judges stand
Poni Moi was the first one to be
noticed. Some of the fans express
ed a wish after the race was over to
see a match pulled off between Poni
Moi and Jubilee. The majority of
them thinking that the latter would
be able to reverse the decision.
9th. Race Running Race. Ha
waiian bred. Three quater mile

came home in front of Rewco and
11 th. Race Cowboy. Relay Race.
Post entries. $25 00 to winner; $10
to second place. Haleakala Ranch
1st; Grove Ranch 2nd
This proved a good race and had
the crowd going the .whole of the
time. The boys from the big
mountain had all the luck of it,
12th. Race Gentlemen's Race.
Half mile dash. For Members of
Association. Owners to ride. Race
horses barred. $25.00 Cup. Parlor
Maid 1st; Billy Buster 2nd. Time
This proved to be one of the best
races of the day and was won on the
post by a nose after a fine piece of
horsemanship. Coming up the
straight for the finishing line Billy
Buster looked as though he must
win. JuBt as they got within the
distance, however. Parlor Maid's
rider came with a rush and after
what was probably the best finish
that has ever been seen n the
course, secured the verdict.
13th. Race Mule Race. Half
mile dash. Post entries. $35.00 to
winner; $15.00 to second mule
Opium, entered by J. K. Kahue,
1st; Baby, entered by Joe Kauiki,
This was a fine race and sent all
the fans home feeling pleased with
the result of their days sport. Al
though it was the thirteenth . race
and he had a sleepy name to carry
round . the track, Opium laid his
ears back and showed those other
mules the proper way to do things
It was a good race from start to
finish and proved a fitting ending
to a good day's sport.
Yacht Race Was Good.
(Continued from Page 1)
the Maui people always took in sail
ing and also of the fact
that the courage and skill of the
men was tested out in a way that
was good for them. He traced out
the history of the cup, and how it
A'as that the Maui folks had come
to present it. Lewis received the
trophy amidst the cheers of those
assembled and in a few words
thanked them for the honor.
George Crozicr assumed the part
of chairman and called on numer
ous of those present to give , their
version, the Maui folks spoke of
how glad they were to seethellono-
! lulu boys, and the latter in their
turn thanked the former for the
good time they always had when
they paid their annual visit.
Mention was made of the time
when the breakwater would be fin
ished here, and the local Utys would
be able to get into the sidling game.
The matter of the rowing race and
the crew which were to leave for
Honolulu also came upaud Captain
Hughes said that the Maui boys
were going up with the full deter
mination to win. He did not know
w hether they could manage it or not
but if they could not they would at
least do their best. During the
evening the music boys, who came
down from Honolulu were kept buuy
and added greatly to the general
good time. The Honolulu boys re
turned home after one of the Ix-st
times they have had yet.
11. P. Baldwin Returns.
L'tst Wednesday the llonolulan
poked her nose into the hnrUr of
Kahului, nfter a fast run down
from the coast, with II. I'.' Baldwin
on board. Mr Baldwin went to the
coast some time ago in search of
health, but after a short stay on the
coast, it was decided that n return
to the islands was the most lienefi-
tial thing for the sick man. On ar
riving here his condition was ap
parently much improved and he
was taken immediately to Maluhia.
Friday morning a sinking spell at
tacked the invalid, and his family
was immediately summoned, and
as we go to press, news of his death
is hourly expected, as the doctors
hold out no hope for his recovery
One of the curiosities of the week
has been the big flaring arc light
that has leen hanging outside the
Orpheum theater. It is lieing run
in connection with the moving
picture show that Eddie Fernandez
has now in town. The contrivance
is worked from an automobile and
is one of the latest ideas in connec
tion with the picture business.
Instead of the back seats there
are a gasoline engine and dynamo
fitted in place and these generate
the desired electricity. Besides the
big flaring arc light there is also
enough current to run a series of
lights inside the hall and to throw a
perfect light on the screen.
During the week he has been here
the pictures have been very good
and to-night the big fight films will
be thrown on the screen again. A
g crowd is expected.
Lahaina Wins the
First Road Race.
Promptly at 6:30 Tuesday morn
ing the first annual road race for
the championship of Maui was
started from in front of the court
house. Five men were sent away
on the ten mile grind by Captain
Bal, and the Filipino, Maximo
Teodoro, raced into the lead im
mediately. The little Brown man's
lead was short lived, however, as
after he had gone about a quarter of
a mile, ho wanted to quit. He was
prevailed upon to keep running for
a mile or two, but he evidently had
left all his speed at home and was
hopelessly out of it. George Liliha
of Lahaina and Maikai Keao of
Wailuku, raced shoulder to should
er for nine miles, and they put up
as game a struggle as any man
should -wish to see. Both men
were apparently running easy, at
the eighth mile, with Maikai slight
ly in the lead. After the ninth mile
had been run, Liliha came up and
took the lead, and immediately
Maikai weakened and collapsed
He was all in and had to be carried
home in an automobile. About a
mile behind Kama Apo was plug
ging along at a good pace. Apo
had been attacked with cramps
earlier in the race and lost ground,
but was coming fast at the end.
This man has the appearauce of a
fine runner, and we hope he will
enter the next race that is run.
All the men finished strong and
while the time of the winner, one
hour, 14 minutes, is not very fast,
still it is a good starter and may re
sult in producing some good men in
There is a prospect of matching
the winner of this race and another
local runner with Nigel Jackson in
the near future, providing Jackson
produces anything more than wind.
There were two weddings at IIo-
nokohau hist Saturday. Ernest
Gilbert Cockett was united in mar
riage with Rose Mary Pali. The
other couple were Solomon Pali and
Lizzie Lum Cong. Rev. Mr. Kapu
performed the ceremony.
A concert, tableau and dance
were the attractions at Lahaina
Hall last Saturday evening.
