THE MAUL! NEWS, SATURDAY, AUGUST 26, 1911
Makawno, Maui, Aug. 22, J911.
Editor "Maui News."
May I be permit
ted BulTieirnt ppnoe in your columns
to express my views upon a matter
winch I consider very vital to Maui?
I note from tlie Honolulu papers
tliat .lie Harhor Commission are in
clined to favor Kihei as the most
advantageous point for the construc
tion of a decent landing on the
windward side of Maui, and it seems
to me that it is high time for the
citizens of Maui to wake up and do
something to put Maui on the known
map of the Islands. At present this
map includes Honolulu and Kilau
ea, and Maui is simply one of the
out-of-the-way places where only
the hardy, venturesone spirits go.
Nobody disputes the fact that Mc
Gregor's landing is hopeless, and
the choice seems to lie between
Maalaea of old, or some new spot
where a really up to date landing
can be made. When Maalaea was
in use the objections to it and the
kicks against it were constant and
many, and the reason for these
objections and complaints still exist.
It would bo no better than it was
before. Instead of taking a step
backward it seems to me that it is
high time that we took every Btep
possible in the line of progress that
would help along the prosperity of
the island. Until we have a decent
wharf alongside of which the "Ma
una Kea" can come, and from which
there is assured comfortable trans
portation, we can never hope to at
tract any considerable number of
tourists and travelers. At present
we get about three per cent of the
people that go to the volcano, but
with a wharf up to which the
"Mauna Kea" could come, and up
on which a train would be to con
vey people to their destination, I
predict that we could Boon get at
least seventy- five per cent ' of such
travelers, and what this would mean
to everybody on Maui not connect
ed with the plantations, it would be
hard to estimate. Very soon the
new steamer "Kilauea," a sister
ship of the "Mauna Kea" will be
in commission, and she will with
out doubt be put on the Kona run,
taking the place of the "Mauna
Loa," and all of the travel will go
on the windward side. I claim

, An effort is being made to orga
nize a representative team for Wai
luku. The boys have been out
practicing this week, and a game
will be played Sunday with a team
representing Waikapu. Many new
faces will be Been on the Wailuku
team, and it is hoped the fans will
turn out in goodly numbers to en
courage the boys.
Jvanuiui nas also organized a
team, and it is proposed to organize
a league, composed of Paia, I'uu-
nene, Kahului, Waikapu, and Wai
luku. There will be practice every
evening next .week, and any ambi
tious ball player, who desires to get
on the Wailuku team, should get
i down and practice.
Ihe game tomorrow will arouse
the old rivaly between the Wailuku
and Waikapu teams, aud while both
teams will show the need of prac
tice, the fans will be able to get a
line on the new players.
New Vacancy on
There is to be no question as to
the legality of the Board of Health.
Dr. W. D. Baldwin, who has been
a member of the body for a number
of years, this morning tendered his
resignation to Governor Frear, thus
removing any chance of their being
too many doctors on the board.
The law provides that the board
shall be composed to two physicians,
four laymen and the attorney gen
eral. With the appointment of Dr.
Pratt the question arose if the board
was legally constituted, inasmuch as
Dr. Hobdy and Dr. Baldwin were
already on it. Although Dr. Pratt
has not been a practicing physician
for a number of years, he is still en
titled to tlie title, and there was
some doubt raised by this fact-
The governor intimated tha he
would require some time to consider
the matter of a successor. He stat
ed that he regrets to lose Dr. Bald
win, and that he is certain that Dr
Pratt will feel the loss keenly. He
considers the resignation a ver;
magnanimous act on Dr. Baldwin s
The Lurline brought 300 tons of freight
from the Coast to Kntulul.
Mrs. Lougher of Puunene goes to Ho
nolulu this week for a visit.
The notice of application for lands in
Lahaina which appears in this issue,

Mr. T. B. Rogers, a nephew of V. L.
West arrived Tuesday evening to take a
position with the Kahului railroad as
station agent at Wailuku.
Joaquin Garcia came over from Hono
lulu Tuesday evening. He returns on
the Claudine ntxt Tuesday for another
weeks stay at the capital. .
Now is the time for all the friends of
Billy Field to go around and see him.
Billy is celebrating the arrWal of a nine
pound boy in the family.
Mrs. E. H. Parker and daughter
arrived home yesterday morning on the
Lurline. They have been spending the
past few months on the coast. j
W. K. Kaae, the County Clerk, re
'urned Tuesday from a trip around West
Maui, where he went to register the
voters. His next trip will beto Molokai.
There will be a meeting of Aloha

effort to attend.
The new barge for the Puunene Club
arrived in Honolulu on the Lurline.
The barge will be housed by the Myrtles
until the Puunene boys go down the
first of the month. ' .
Now that Jack Rivers is back, there is
no reason why the band can not be re
vived. When it is revived let us have a
concert at least once a week. A concert
at Kahului and Paia once in a while
would doubtless be appreciated.
Every member ' should attend the
Chamber of Commerce meeting on Sep
tember 8th. Matters of vital interest to
Maui are to be discussed. Those who
have anything to offer on these subjects,
should be there and not wait till after
the meeting, and then find fault with
what has been done.
Jack .Rivers was an arrival last Satur
day morning. Jack has travelled far
since he left Maui, but he says he is here
to stay this time. He went to California
aud then down to Tahiti in search of
something that looked as good as Maui,
but homesickness grew on him, and he
could not resist the call to return to his
poi and fish. '
One of our local automobilists was ar
rested this week for speeding.- The
police should arrest all the speeders now
they have started. They might also
make an example of some of the road
hogs who either don't know or don't
care what the rule 01 the road is.
In either case they should be taught, as
they are more dangerous than the

"Every step I took in the matter
