The Harbjp Commissioners.
IT must seem strange to tourists and travellers passing through to
see the papers filled continually with the petty squabbles of the dif
ferent public bodies in Honolulu. A little while back it was the
Board ot Health, then the Loan Fund Commission, and now the mem
bers of the Harbor Commission are not only fighting among them
selves like the proverbial Kilkenny cats, but they seem to be antagon
izing the commercial interests of the other islands. Whether this . is
the fault of the board as a whole or simply that of the chairman of the
board it is Hard to say, though of late it seems that wherever you find
Marston Campbell, there you will find trouble.
The Maui Chamber of Commerce had reason to believe that Mr.
Campbell was not dealing fairly with them in the Kihei wharf matter,
and a resolution to this effect was sent to Honolulu. This caused a be
ligeraut reply to be sent from the commission as a whole in which they
practically told the Chamber of Commerce to mind its own business.
This matter is the business of the Chamber of Commerce, and they
are determined to see whether Mr. Campbell and the rest of the com
mission are prepared to carry out the will of the people, or whether
they can sidetrack this matter, as Campbell is reported to have said
they intended to do.
We predicted some time ago that Mr. Campbell was fooling with a
buzz-saw when he tried to buffalo the Maui Chamber of Commerce, and
our prediction has just about come true.
If the "youngest theatrical manager in the world," or some other of
the managers of the local show houses, would engage Superintendent
Marston Campbell for a lightning change act on the stage, he ought to
make a greai hit, a much bigger hit, in fact, that he has made in his
official capacity. If Marston can change his clothes as quickly as he
can change his mind and his face, he's a wonder. Crossroads.
A novel entitled "A Green Vase," by W. R. Castle, Jr., and pub
lished by Dodd, Mead & Co., is out. A volume has been received
here, and we hope to have the pleasure of reveiwing it next week. Mr.
Casele is a product of Hawaii, and no doubt his many friends here will
ensure a large sale for the book throughout the Territory.
A persistent report is in circulation that Mr. W.G.Scott is out forjthe
position of Sheriff of Maui. Mr. Scott has a very good job at present,
and if he is wise he will stay there, because he would have as much
chance of being elected shertff, as a counterfeit dollar would have
passing a sub-treasury inspector.
The beach road begins to look as though there was something doing
in this burg. The poles along this road for the electric wires are near
ly all in place, and the residents are looking forward in pleased anti
cipation to the time when the juice will be turned on, and the town no
longer grope around in darkness.
Training Season Rapatee.
AYS the leaguer to the busher as they limber up their joints,
Just keep your eye on me and you will get some inside points
About this game of baseball, so when Danny stops your eats
You'll go back to the Punkin League and knock'em off their seats.
You don't do badly for a kid. You're got the speed to burn,
You sting the leather on the snoot, and all you're got to learn
Is how to shoot'em down the groove, and how to waste'em, too,
And how to field and how to slide, and just what not to do.
So watch the way that I do, and who knows? Perhaps some day
A Class D scout may come along and sign you up he may."
Says the leaguer to the leaguer (which means unto himself).
"I wonder if I'm really due to hit the 'has been' shelf?
This kid is there a thousaud and if I've slowed up a bit
The day they tie the tin cans on, it may be that's 'it.'
I'll start him pulling boueheads, and if he ain't queered by that,
I'll find a soft spot on his knob and bump it with a bat."
Says the busher to the leaguer, "I have heard that stuff before.
The Punkin League is full of guys who played up here of yore.
But just get this into your dome, that I've come up to say,
And any time you beat me out you sure have got to play
A game that shows a little class. You may not know it, bo,
But either you've gone back a lot or you were always slow.
Just show me all you can, old top, and I'll be glad to learn,
And maybe when they hand you yours I'll help you in return.
You'll need a job this season, sure I tell you what I'll do;
I'll get my old bush manager to save my place for you."
Says the busher to the busher, with a confidential note,
"I don't see why this guy is always trying to get my goat.
It doesn't look to me as though I've got a chance at all,
The way that he is fielding and a-sappin' out the ball.
But I will bluff the season through, and tell 'em how it feels,
When I get back to Punkin ville, to be among the Seals."
V. F. Mossman, manager of the
Hamakuapoko store, was stricken
with paralysis last Tuesday. He
was moved over to the Paia hospital
and Wednesday evening he had a
second stroke. Mrs. Mossman, who
was at Nahiku, hurried to his side,
and his two sons were also with
Dr. McConkey, who was in at
tendance held .ut no hope for his
recovery, and in fact his death was
looked for all during Thursday.
Early Friday morning the patient
opened his eyes, and seeing the
doctor bending over him, smiled
and held out his hand. The doctor
grasped it, and thus he passed out
of this life.
Mr. Mossman was a mason, and
he received a masonic burial, the
funeral taking place at 2 o'clock
A brother, who was until recent
ly in the stationery business died
two weeks ago in Honolulu.
Mr. Mossman has had an honor
able and useful career. He was for
a time, Collector of Customs at Ka.
hului, and for the past few years
has filled acceptably the position of
Manager of the , Hamakuapoko
Strike at Paia.
Last Saturday night, an incipient
riot took place in the Paia camp.
The camp is occupied by Okinawas
a tribe of Japanese, who came from
one of the many small islands off
the northeast coast of Japan. , The
Okinawas were having a feast and
becoming noisy, the camp boss went
in to stop it- 1 tie result was a
general mix up in which the camp
boss was roughly handled. Not
content with this, .the laborers de
manded that the plantation dis
charge the boss, but the manager
refused. The laborers promptly
went on strike. Their bluff was as
promptly called, and about 300 of
them were paid off and told to get
out. This ended the strike, and
everything in now quiet, with the
strikers out of luck.
Von Hamm-Young Co.
Automobiles are coming into the
islands so fast that one wonders
where they all go to, hut there still
seems to be a ready market, not
only in Honolulu, but throughout
all the islands for the latest designs.
The call for the latest thing, by
those who ccn afford it, forces upon
the market a great number of first
class machines only slightly used.
These machines are practically as
good as new, though they must ne
cessarily be sold as second hand.
The Von Hamm-Young Company
are continually getting in these
slightly used cars in exchange, and
it is possible many times, to get a
bargain. Mr. Bodge, the manager
of the automobile department of
this company, is now on Maui, with
a slightly used Packard, which he
will be glad to show to anyone de
siring such a car.

That there is a good demand for

tested to by the appearance of the

which I expect will be taken.
"Nearly all of t he subscriptions so
far received are from local people,
that is residents of the island, but
I expect fubstantial returns from

will have had'time to give the mat

scriptions vary from ? 100 to 830,000.
