THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1912.
Many Auto Accidents.
What cnme very near leing a fatal
accident occured at Kahului, last
Monday morning. Joe Mediums was
driving a Hudson lelonging to tlie
Iao Stables, and had as passengers
Drs. Pratt and McCoy of Honolulu
and Sanitary Inspector Trevenan.
As is usually the case, accounts of
the accident differ greatly . Medeiros
claims he was not going over 20
miles an hour, while eye witnesses
of the affair aver lie was going at
least 25 miles. Medeiros claims he
did not see the flagman at the rail
road crossing until he was within
six feet of the crossing. The train
men say the flagman was out long
before either train or automobile
was near the crossing.
The facts are that the auto driver
Beeing he was in danger and could
not get across ahead of the train,
and could not stop, turned his car,
trying to run parallel with the track,
ahead of the train. He was not
quick enough, and the first car
caught the auto behind, smashing
the upper works all out of shape.
Drs. Pratt and McCoy were in the
back seat and escaped with only a
severe shaking up, while Mr. Tre
venan was slightly cut.
An auto standing on the wrong
side of the street, was run into
Sunday evening, and a broken wheel
and bent axle was the result.
Wednesday evening, while two
automobilles were returning from
the show at Puunene, they encount
ed some roaming horses belonging
to the Iao Stables, on the road.
The first car slowed up quickly to
avoid the horses, and the second
car ran into a tree standing by the
side of the road, to avoid smashing
into the car ahead.
Last Saturday evening a wildly
driven auto, came very near causing
a bad accident on the beach road,
which was averted only by the quick
action of others.
We do not wish to be pessimistic,
but the chapter of automobile ac
cidents which have occured during
this week, is what we have been
looking for, for some time. There
is no reason under the sun for this,
and it shows nothing but laxity in
those to whom we should look for
protection in those matters. The
police are lax in enforcing the
regulations. The regulations them
selves seem to be faulty, and the
police claim they can do nothing.
If this thing keeps up it will not be
safe to ride on our streets.
Baseball Last Sunday.
The games last Sunday were both
rather tame. The J. A. C.s were
only conceded an outside chance be
fore the game started. That was
all they had, and all they ever will
have, so long as they continue to
throw games away by their bone
head plays They threw away
enough runs last Sunday to at least
have tied the Stars, and hare made
it interesting. As it was, there was
very little scoring, and though the
fielding was good, exceptionally
Aod on both Bides, there was very
little enthusiaam shown either by
the Dlavers or the fans. The Stars
won by a score of 5 to 2.
In the second game, the Camp
One team had four new players,
but this did not strengthen them
particle. Kahului made a runaway
race of it. Camp One was hope
lessly outclassed, and though they
crawled up a bit on Kahului to
wards the close, it was easily . seen
that McCauley was only loafing, and
giving his team mates some needed
The game between the Stars and
Kahului next Sunday should be a
good one, if Bill Montcastle, will
give his team a dose of ginger before
the game. If he don't they have
no chance, as Ginger is the middle
name of every man on the Star
The Paia-Camp One game should
be only practice for the former

Dance at Wailuku
The annual dance at the Wailuku
Sugar Mill, which a few years ago,
was one of the events of the season,
but which for various reasons had
been discontinued, was revived this
year, with all the splendour and
beauty of former years, with many
added attractions. Better facilities
and better arrangements for hand
ling a big crowd could hardly bo ini
agined. The attention to detail which
showed at every turn, proved that
those in charge had put in many
hours of hard work.
Everybody was there and still
there was not the least suggestioi
of congestion. It was more like
big fair than a dance. Dancing
there was aplenty, but for those
who were not dancing, there was
left ample room for promenading
