Fifteen or eighteen yarn ago wo
wlio had secured leased for our liomc
sites oh Punchbowl were stirred by
the accounts in coast newspapers of
the diiliculties . met' by our fellow
townsman, Joe Fernandez, the bar
ber. Joe was then the Beau Brum
mel of the slopo; the eligible among
the swell barbers in the city and
piling up money. But he slippcri
the proverbial lemon to the Portu
. gucsc maidens on tho hill and hied
himself to San Francisco .to woo the
girl of his choice. The difficulties
mentioned above were mainly the
objections of tho girl's parents and
relatives. They had other ideas for
her and besides, she was o'er young
to marry yet. The newspaper ac
count of the dash and the chase by
relatives was indeed interesting to
every one on Punchbowl. Joo had
hard luck, but finally landed the
prize, brought hor to the islands,
prospored in business so that he now

foreman to relieve him of details,

thought before Madan Langton,
and got the document signed, sealed
and delivered. Now comes tho sequel
to tho runaway match.
I have not seen Mrs. Joo for years
and then she was one of tho pre
tiest and most attractive girl's at
tending nino o'clock mass in the
Cathedral, and so good at' heart was
she that sho was never calkylupon
to say Hail Mary's or Our Father's
as pennance for storing up evil
thoughts. And Joo was near-good.
Good looking beyond tho average,
and keen for business. But ho has
changed and, tho natural turn of
events in the average Portuguese
woman prompts mo to tho belief
that Mrs. Joo may havo grown as
fat and em bompointy as others
of her race. It is for that reason
that the husband, who chased over
two counties and dodged horsewhips
and bullets to get hor, now passes
her up, if tho libel in the divorce
just filed by Mrs. Joe, counts for
anything. At all events his and her

been engaged during tho past three

ner and whether it was his short,
tight trousers covering his sparse
collection of calves, or just his win
ning ways that got her heart, I am
not in a position to say. In tho
matter of personal appearance and
physical charms Mrs. Haynes, that
is, has sufficient to divide with her
husband and still be a Venus in
form. Her mother, Mrs. Garnze,
who is said to bo wealthy beyond the

Haynes gives equal promiso and as-

But sho seems to regret, according

and that product will probably for a,

But thqre is another crop which,

Tlfc Promotion Committee is do
ing everything in its power, with tho
too limited means at its disposal, to
induce tourists to visit Hawaii, and
its efforts aro meeting with more
success each year. Tho number of
tourists who como to tho Islands is
steadily increasing. Yet the fact re
mains that business is far from being
the general asset that it should be.
Where docs the trouble lie?
The answer is obvious, though per
haps not too generally recognized.
Tho Promotion Committeo induces
tho tourist to como to Hawaii, but
what does Hawaii do for him when
ho gets hero?
Hawaii has plenty, to offer tho visit
or for Ins entertainment but is it
offered? Hardly. The tourist is left
to his own devices, asked to fufnisl
his own entertainment, told, by iiv
ference, to look after himself because
wo arc too busy or too indolent
QT too negligent to bother about him
Mr. Tourist very often gets tho
roughly bored in about two or three
weeks that ho prays for tho day to
como when tho steemship companies
and our hidebound coastwise ship
ping laws will graciously permit him
to shake tho dust of Honolulu from
his feet. And ho goes back homo and
tells his friends and relatives, "Yes,
Honolulu is a beautiful place but you
am see it all in two or three days and
then there is nothing to do."
Nothing for tho tourist to do I And
yet we havo not only tho Volcano,
but Haleakala, Iao Vally, tho Koo-
lau ditch trail, tho beautiful secenpry
of northern Kauai, not to speak of
the many delightful rides and drives
around Honolulu of which tho aver
age tourist remains in total ignoranco
throughout his stay because nobody
takes tho trouble to tell him what to
do or whero to go.
Southern California, notwith
standing tho immense volumo of its
tourist trado, has not anything liko

has, from a tourist-business stand

Maui Athletic Association Plan to Start
League Series September 24.
The baseball situation is gradual
ly coming along, and at the meeting
of the Athletic Association in the
Pown Hall last Monday evening, a
permanent organization was formed.
Mr. C. E. Meyers was elected pres
ident, Mr. W. T. Robinson, vice
president; Mr. John Garcia, secre
tary; Capt. Bal, treasurer. It was
the concensus of opinion of ..thoso
present that as the baseball season
is nearly over that a short series
should be arranged at once, and
playing begin Sunday September 24.
The secretary was instructed to
notify those interested that all
teams desiring to play in tho scries
should be entered on or before
Wednesday, the 20th of September.
This will give tho officials an oppor
tunity to arrange tho series. It is
proposed that each team shall put
up a guarantee with tho association
that they will play through tho en
tire series. r
The next meeting of tho Associa
tion will be held at the Town Hall,
Wednesday evening, September 20,
when tho executive committee will
present a set of rules and by-laws
for the consideration of tho mem
bers. ' -
Considerable interest is being
developed in the scries and' four or
five teams are expected to enter.
Copt. Bal has tho men working Jon
tho grading of the outfield and by
tho time play commences, Wailuku
will have as good baseball grounds
as can be found on the islands. Tho
diamond has been skinned along
tho base lines about 30 feet wide .
When this is rolled the balls will
bound truo for the fielders and also
make the game much faster.
A large attendanco is requested
at tho next meeting of the Associa
tion not only from 'Wailuku, but
also from outlying districts.
