Comes Oat With a Straight
, forward Statement.
Delegate Kalanianaole lias made
to the Honolulu Bulletin a full
statement on the proposed Frear
investigation, its relation to Ha
waiian politieal affaire, ami his own
position The statement is as fol
lows: Any statements made that I am
not a Republican, and am about to
leave the party, are absolutely un
true. I am riot a desorter, and will
. not bo one.
I am a Republican and will re
main a Republican, no matter what

I have consulted leading Democrats
in the position I havo taken in op-
nosition to the reappointment of
Governor Frear, is unfounded.
have consulted with Mr. Kinney
and with Mr. Ashford, but solely
as to matters of form and procedure
in the presentation of my charges.
Mr. Kinney has been my attorney
personally, and the attorney of the
Kapiolani Estate for many years.
I employed him for the same reason
that the Planters' Association has
-from time to time employed him,
on account of his ability. Mr. Ash
ford has also acted for the Kapio-
' lani Estate on several occasions. I
employed him to assist me in the
matter- of presenting to the Secre
tary of the Interior the charges I
have made against Governor Frear.
Neither Mr. Kinney nor Mr. Ash
ford have had aught to do with the
matter except as above stated.
The charges made emanated from
me and from me alone, and I alone
am responsible for them.
Mr. Colburn has been taken into
my confidence only in so far" as his
nosition as business agent for the
Kapiolani Estate necessitated.
I am in favor of a renomination
of President Taft.
I have a great admiration for
him. He has been a good friend of
the Hawaiian Islands. I hope and
believe ho will bo renominated and
reelected. I shall do all in my
Dower to assist in securing this re
sult. I . have expressed myself in
favor of an uninstructed delegation.

Successful Loan at Puunene.
Again have the bays at Puunene
.pulled off a novel affair. So often
' have they startled the community
with these new features that we are
beginning to take them as a matter
of course. The idea of having the
luau spread in the tank, however,
was indeed a happy thought. Again
have they demonstrated the fact that
wo can do things here on Maui that
aro impossible of duplication on the
islands. Only one thing was over
looked, and that was the advertising
feature. Could a picture have been
taken of the tank with its tables
groaning under tho weight of the
good, old Hawaiian dishes, and the
happy throng seated about, and
transferred to postcards, it would
havo surely proven one of the
best advertisements ever handled by
tho island postcard dealers.
After the luau a dance was held
in tho club rooms and tho largo
crowd present enjoyed themselves
to the limit. One noticeable feature
however, was tho scarcity of gentle
men dancers, there seemingly being

Bowling Team Takes
The bowling matches between the
Puunene Athletic Club and th'e
Kegel Club of Kauai, have started
things in the right direction, and
there is no doubt but that an inter
island bowling league will be started
in the near future, which will prove
a great boom to all sport on the
the islands. ,
The first match between Puunene
and Kauai was won by the former
with an averago pin fall of 166. In
the second match an almost entire
new team bowled for Puunene, with
the result that they could t not keep
up the pace set by their team mates
in the first match, and Kauai won
auite handily. Following is the
scores in the match :
Rice ...... , - 717
Hills J- 800

The third and deciding contest
will bo rolled in the near future-!
WAILUKU VS. PUUNENE.
The team from the Wailuku gym
nasium again took tho fuunene

This is the third contest between
these two teams, and Wailuku has
been the winner in every instance
Tho Wailuku team rolled in fine
form Sunday morning, and though
Voeller and Clark were not up to
their best form, still the other mem
bers of the team were bowling at
ton sneed. and scored high. For
Puunene Campbell did tho best
work, while Savage, the old reliable
could not get going till the last
game. Following is the score :
Clark 120 132 140392
Bal 169 176 169514

After tho game Sunday a team
was chosen to go to Honolulu as an
all Maui team to represent tho Puu
none Athletic Club in a match
against the leader of tho leaguo in
Honolulu. This team went down
on the Mauna Kca Wednesday, and
returned this morning on tho Clau
dine. The following members were
chosen as the team to go to Hono

Hawaii Day, For Tourists.
The people of Hawaii have come
to look upon the Floral Parade, as
the event of the year. Soon the
people of the world will be talking
about it as one of the events of a
world trip. The .people of Hono
lulu awoke Thursday morning,
rubbed their eyes, and found that
this was to be indeed a history
making day for this territory.
Other Floral Parades with their
added attractions have always been
features, but this year has sur
passed anything even thought of in
The military parade in the morn
ing was more than the name im
plies. As troop after troop, bat
tery after battery and company
after company passed by the re
viewing stand, with flashing swords
raised in salutejt was apparent to
everyone that the era of the mili
tary was at hand. With the troops
hidden away in the different posts,
few. realized that Oahu was a
Gibralter in fact and not in fiction.
Every man in that parade was
ready for service and they
looked the part. They looked busi
ness like, and are now , and
always will . be ready for
any emergency which may arise.
There was no attempt at show, and
every man was in service uniform,
wnicn, tiiougn not so snowy, was
the ideal thing for this occasion.
The floral Parade in the afternoon
was of surpassing beauty. It would
be useless to attempt to describe it
in detail, for as each float came in
to view it brought .forth a fresh
exclamation from the assembled
multitude and the only regret was
that -there could not have been more
The Japanese lantern parade
proved an innovation for those who
have never seen one before. It was
just one long serpentine mass of
jumbled light, dazzling in brillian
cy, and unique by contrast, but
strictly oriental. The town is full
of visitors, full of fun hunting
tourists, who no doubt will all be
travelling advertisements of the
glory of Hawaii. For when Hono
lulu scores a triumph such as has
been her's the past few days, all
Hawaii reaps the benefit.

Party From Hilo Meet With Trouble
A party of friends hired ono of
the big auto busses run by tho Vol
cano Stobles Sunday, and started
for'Naalehu. It could not bo de
finitely learned just who was in tho
party, but one of them was Shel
don, tho popular pjjrser of the
Kilauca, and a man named Gard
ner, an engineer, whilo the others .
were unknown to the Stables people.
The party arrived at their destina
tion without any mishap, but whilo
there some of thenij 'evidently had .
taken more than was good because
it seems the accident was due to in
terference with the chauffeur on tho
part of Gardner. The party started
from Naalchu to catch tho steamer
at Honuapo. and whilo the chauf
feur, Joe Martin was making at fast
time as was safe over tho roads,
Gardner, who was in the front seat
with him, kept urging him to go
faster. Finally he made a grab for
the steering wheel and in some
manner opened the gasolene throt
tle. The car shot ahead with a
bound, and as they were on a pali,
in rounding a sharp curve the car
turned turtle. It is said that the
car turned five complete sommer
saults and left the occupants strewn
along its path. Sheldon had his
leg broken at the thigh, and is
otherwise terribly bruised. The
chauffeur, Joe Martin injured his
sp'ne, and is cut and bruised, and
is reported not expected to live.
As is usually the case, tho man who
caused tho accident is not hurt.
Tho auto bus is a complete wreck.
The Fleet Come and Go.
Early Monday morning tho flag
ship California was sighted rounding
Huejo point, and about an hour
later, when Capt. Parker went
aboard, about three miles off Kahu-
lui harbor, he found a busy sceno.
Ono bunch of officers were scan
ning the beach lino withglasses.and
others were taking notes of every
thing which was seen by their
mates. At another point were men
tak'ing soundings, and everything
being taken down on tho chart.
The fleet including the California,
Colorado and South Dakota, came
to anchor about ten o'clock.
Tho committee of ,thc -Chamber of
Commerce was on hand to give the
officers a good time, but they were
on a business trip, and it was long
after the noon hour beforo any of
them came ashore. Even then very
few left tho ships.and no shore leave
whatever was granted the men.
During tho evening thesearchlight
of the ships wer,o kept busy flashing
about the waters of the bay and oc
casionally sending a searching eye
shoreward or lighting up thoheaveiiH.
Early Tuesday morning they sailed
away for Honolulu to take part in
