Is at Kihei, Where Her Engine Trouble
Will Be Repaired.
Flic power-schooner Makena, with
all well on board, was towed into
Kihoi Monday morning.
Dr. J. II. Raymond, the owner
of tlio littlo vessel whoso failure- to
arrive at its port of destination
caused the circulation of ninny sen
sational rumors, was informed that
the craft hail been blown far out to
sea before having been taken in tow
by the fishing sampan.
From advices forwarded to Dr.
Raymond, the Makena, in helpless
conditions through the breaking
down of her carbureter, was picked
up on last Thursday by the Japan
ese and from that time until early
Monday morning the disabled Ma
kena was slowly but surely brought
from a position miles to leeward of
The Makena's engines went well
until early Thursday morning, when
the machinery running smoothly at
a hundred revolutions suddenly
stopped. All attempts to adjust
tho carbureter faded despite the
efforts of Captain Tom Mason and
his two assistants. When it was
found impossible to get the carbu
retor working, the Japanese tried
squirting tho gasoline into the en
gine with a squirt gun.
Tho Makena was seen by observ
ere stationed on Kahoolawe, where
at tho present time a party of goat-
hunters acting under the direction
of Supervisor Ebon Low are carry
ing on a campaign of extermination
of the four-footed pests that abound
Dr. Mitamura, head of one of the
Honolulu Japanese fishing com
panics, was tho first to receive a re
port concerning tho safety of the
Makena. Early Sunday morning h
Japanese sampan owner on arrival
at Honolulu stated that his vessel
had come upon the Makena while
the power .schooner was drifting
helpless to the leeward of Lahaina.
Tho Japanese vessel, known locally
as the Asahi Maru, stood by for a
short time, her men ready to lend
assistance should it be needed.
x Upon inquiry, the Japanese state
that they were told that the Ma
kena's engines were not acting pro
perly but that there was every
reason to believe that the machinery
would soon bo placed in working
After a brief exchange of greet
ings between the Japanese on the
Makena and the Asahi Maru, tho
latter vessel continued on her course
iii the direction of Honolulu, while
it was generally supposed that the
Makena would endeavor to put into
' R. Dominique.tho opulent barber,
who graced Wailuku for a few
months, has sent word to Joe Fox
that ho was robbed in New York.
Tho report has been erroneously
circulated that lie was robbed of his
entire savings, hut tho probability
is that it was simply tho money lie
had on his person for expenses on
his way to Paris. When Dominique
left Maui ho had all his money, ex
cept what ho needed for travelling
expenses, put in tho form of a hank
draft from the Wailuku National
Rank on Credit Laionaiso of Paris
and even if this draft was stolen it
would do the thief up good, as no

A big advantage under the plan
now proposed is that tho burden of

on tho cannery companies instead
of upon the homesteaders, since fho

Basket Hall Girls Give l'riory Team
The St. Andrews Priory basket
ball team, together with their
coach, Miss Cunningham, arnvd
by tho Mauna Kca Tuesday night
and wero met at McGregor's by a
large delegation from j Wailuku.
The girls were taken in charge, and
every caro given thein, but Irom
later developments this care was of
the nature of the South African
cannibals who so tenderly care for
missionaries before eating them,
but thjit is another story.
"" iO first game of basket ball was
played Wednesday evening, and all
through tho game it was plain to
everyone who has seen the local
team in practice, that it was their
courtesy to the visitors which made
them so tame. They just played
fast enough to keep tho Honolulu
champions in sight, but nothing
could induce them to show their
true fighting spirit, and thus Hono
lulu won by a score of 12 to 9.
Rut, what a rude shock these
Honolulu players received in tho .
Thursday night game. It was just T'
liko turning them loose among a
bunch of wild cats. Wailuku scored
the first point within a minute of
the beginning of play, and kept on ,
scoring almost at will throughout' .
the game. Honolulu played well,',
but they were bewildered with, tho
dazzling speed of tho Wailuku for-
The Honolulu forwards were also
fast, but the cbso, determined
guarding of Miss Wilcox and Ah n
Choy, made it almost impossible for
them to do anything liko effective
work. Erma Wodehouse at centre
would not bo denied, and in tho lat
ter part of tho game tho Honolulu
centre had no defence left with which
to oppose her. Tho final score was
21 to 10. The deciding game will
bo played Mpnday night, and the
winner's will bo tho undisputed
champions of the Islands. Judging A
by the playing of the two teams so"
far, it looks very much liko a win
for Wailuku. . ,
