The Maui Association of Churches
which closed its semi-annual session,, at
the ' Kaahumanu Church last Tuesday
evening was well attended by pastors and
delegates from Maui and Molokai. The
series of addresses upon the general topic
"Religion in the Home" weVe excellent
and were eagerly listened to by those
fortunate enough to hear them. Rev. W
B. Oleson ' description of the ' World in
Boston" was one of the best hours of the
meetings. He spent some time telling
his hearers of the great Lall in Boston
where the exhibition was held, the pro
cession of many thousands who opened
the greatest missionary exhibit America
has ever seen, and of the wonderful pa
geant in which Hawaii with her Princess
Kapiolani took sola an important part.
It is hoped that some time that portion of
the grear exhibition may be repeated in
Honolulu. Mr. Oleson described the pre
sentation of Kilauea on the stage as very
I realistic. The March meeting of the
churches will be held at the Kaluaaha
The scene of the next fifteen
m'le race litis been transferred from
Honolulu to Knhu'ui. This is the
first time many of the citizens of
Maui have ever had a chance to see
some of the heist runners of these
islands in action.
Mr. Onishl of Kahului, decerves
great credit for- his efforts to get the
runners to come here, and he should
be rewarded by a large attendance
Of the three runners from Hono
lulu who will compete in the fifteen
mile race, Jackson is the best
known, as he has been on Maui
many times. Many believe Jack
son is a dead one so far as running
is concerned, but there is no doubt
ho was once a good runner, as he
proved by winning the Haleiwa
race, defeating both Kaoo and Tsu
kamoto. Jackson says he is as
good as ever, but that remains to
be seen Sunday.
Tsukamoto, the Japanese runner,
is the idol of every Japanese fan.
A couple of years ago he was con
sidered the best fifteen miler on the
islands but after his defeat by Kaoo,
he seemed to loose heart, and
though he has done good work in
Japan, he has never been able to
get back to his old form here.
Scharsch is an unknown quantity.
He is a good man with poor legs.
He has been a near winner fhany
times, but at a critical stage his legs
have gone back on him. He should
be able to give a good account of
himself at fifteen miles. If every
thing is right, and above board Tsu
kamoto should be returned a win
The two-mile race for local men
will be a good one and as a number
of runners have entered, the rivalry
will be keen.
In the bicycle race, Joe Smith
should repeat his performance of
the Fourth of July. . - .
The Baseball Situation.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
Bulletin says the first game of the
new league series will be played at
Lahaina Sunday, there will be no
game on that day, but the fans will
go to the races. The league serifs
will start on Sunday October 1, and
will, in all likelihood be played at
Wailuku. Four teams have enter
ed the league, one from Paia, one
from Kahului, and two from Wai
luku. The games will probably be
played alternately at Wailuku and
Kahului. As the season for ball
playing is nearly over the series
this fall will be short, but the
league should be in good shape for
a good long season of successful ball
next year. "
