"Juice" Wanted Earlier.
To the casual observer and, incidentally, the householders of Wailu
ku, the present custom of turning on the electric current at stated hours,
seems absurd, and constitutes a great annoyance.
It is very well to say that the "juice" is turned on at, say, six or
so in the evening. That statement does not relieve the troubles of the
storekeeper, hotel manager or any private individual,- who may sit in
semi-darkness from five-forty-five on till the regulation hour or light
ing up conies around.
It may be said, in defense, that it is quite light on the streets, and
out-of-doors at six o'clock these days. That is true, no doubt, but
there are. many homes and business houses in which it is very dark till
the current turned on. When it is remembered that the Wailuku
electric light system is based on the meter rate, it seems strange that
any hour at all is set for turning on the power. In fact, a "flat rate"
system, such as prevails in Hilo, would seem to be the best one to adopt.
Then let us have juice, nigh and day.
v Hard Fiht Ahead.
It behooves all good Republicans to thoroughly understand that the
coming elections are going to be closer and harder fought than any of
recent years. The contest for the delegateship is going to be a very keen
one and L. L. McCandless is going to give Kuhio the fight of his life.
The voting population of the islands has changed a lot during the
past two years, and no stone should be left unturned in the effort to
carry the party that has made the United States, to victory
A great danger threatens through the "crow eating" act that many
Republicans will have to perform, as regards Kuhio. In fact there are
many Republicans who, absolutely, declare Kuhio will not get their
vote. This is to be regretted and therefore it is imperative that the
most strenuous fight of years be put up to defeat the Democratic candi
date. In igalion for Kula.
It would take an enormous amount of money to start and carry out
an irrigation scheme for the Kula district but, can anyone doubt for a
moment that such a proposition would be a God-send for the district.
The scheme is such a big one that, probably, only Uncle Sam could
carry it through. Yet, if water was conveyed by ditch, fluine, siphon
and tunnel, to the Kula farms, what sort of a huge garden would blos
som forth? i '
Some day Kula will come into her own, and then the choicest of ve
getables and fruits will find a ready market. The railroad must, some
day, be extended so that it will tap this fertile tract, and then the small
farmer will get what has been coming to him for years past.
The campaign against tuberculosis cannot be too strenuously carried
on, and every effort should be nmde to educate the people as to the
right way to live.
The series of lectures that are being given by Professor Bairos, on
behalf of the Board of Health, are accomplishing much good, but it
should be remembered that only permanent good can result when the
people themselves begin to work out their own salvation.
It behooves every person on Maui to assist the Board of Health as
much as possible, and to do all in their power to wipe out the dread
There should be an excursion steamer run to connect Honolulu and
Maui during Regatta week. The Inter-Island Company could easily
arrange to have a steamer take people to and from Maui at, say, an
eight dollar rate. The annual regatta is a great affair and all Maui
would like to be present in order to nee our crew 'put it over" the

FinuMy Kim Yun Lau told the
hospital doctors all aliout the flunk
ing on the mountain. At first the
story was not believed but, when
the younger brother of the wounded
youth, told the same story, the
police were notified and a search
party started out early on Wednes
day morning. Sheriff Crowd I,

noon, he fell under the gun shot of
The body of Ten Pau Chung was
found exactly in the place that had
been indicated by the wounded lad.
From the indications, it is gleaned
that the story of the youngest mem
ber of the party, seems to be about
correct. The first boy in the line
of fire, received the major part of
the shot charge, aud was killed in
stantly. The second lad was strick
en by at least a dozen pellets and,
although he did not die at once,
evidently expired some hours after

occurrence is the fact that, if any
alarm had been turned in, the life
of Ning Chong Loo might have len

and all as he was wounded in the
head, lie might have been saved if
assistance had been sent to him on
The story of Mu Ching Wong,
who is said to have done the shoot
ing, is a wonderfully weird one.
When seen in his cell at the police
station, the youth, who appears to
Ui about seventeen years of age, had
the following to say:
"We nil left our homes at about
half-past eleven o'clock on Satur
day morning.- There were five boys
altogether. Wc had a rille aud a
shot-gun. We were out after pea
cocks and goats. We saw no gouts
and, about noon, I .saw Kim Van
Lau lift the shot gun and fire at
what he thought was a flock of pea
cocks. Then we went down to see
how many were killed and found
two boys one dead and the other
dying. 1 did not shoot the hoys.
It was Kim Yan Lau who did it."
When asked as to how Kim Yan
Lau came to le shot also, Wong de
clared that an attempt at suicide
must have been made. This whole
story is scouted by the County At
torney and the Sheriff.
The story told by Kim Me Lau,
a youngster of about nine years of
age, is very different to that of Mu
KIM ME LAU'S STORY. -
"We all went out hunting pea
cocks, '' he stated, "and about noon
I was just behind Mu Ching Wong.
He had the shot gun and the other
three boys were somewhere farther
.down the hill. There were a lot of
small bushes around and we were
searching for peacocks. Suddenly
I saw Mu Ching Wong lift his gun
and point into the bushes. The
tops of some peacock feathers could
be seen. Wong fired the gun and
then we went down about sixty feet
to where we thought the peacocks
were. We there found the three
boys, all lying in a row, behind one
another. The first boy was covered
in blood and was dead. The second
boy was just breathing. My brother
was the third in the line and he
was moaning. His head and side
were hurt. We picked him up and
took him home. I did not tell any
body about the two boys being shot
on the mountain. I was afraid to
as Mu Ching Wong threatened me
and told me not to tell anybody.
My brother was taken to the hospi
tal and he was frightened to tell
about the shooting also. It was
Mu Ching Wong who fired the

reached the site of the tragedy there
were several pathetic scenes. The

the Chinese settlement and buried.

mains. An inquest will be held on
Monday evening, and it is" thought
that the true story of the shooting

Wong. That the whole affair was
an accident, there is no doubt- The
leaving of the wounded boy on the
mountain to die from exposure
forms the worst feature of the case.

The situation of the Parsonage at
Sunnyside among the trees and with
the splendid outlook made Mr. and
Mrs. Dowdiwh much pleased that
this beautiful place is to be their
home. They spoke of it as ideal.
The house had been thoroughly fur
nished through the generosity of the
people of the Church. Painted out
side and in, and equipped with new
carpets, rugs, and all necessary fur
niture most of which was new and
very well selected, Sunnyside see ins
most attractive. The kitchen is
provided with a new stove, and all
useful utensils, many of which, are
aluminum. A large new refrigerator
and complete set of dishes in the
China closet make up . the equip
ment that the new pastor and his
wife found their generous parishion
ers had provided for them. And
furthermore provisions of all kinds
with a complete stock of supplies
had liecn sent from different homes
throughout the parish, so that house
keeping immediately was possible.
The yard has been thoroughly
cleaned by a gang of men, and a
cow provided. The church also
furnishes a telephone and is helping
in other ways in addition to the
salary. The pastor paid he had
heard of such kindness in story
books, but he had never experienced
so much of it himself in -tlie sluiri

sermon on Sunday to a large and

pleasure to listen to him. His first

We Dwell With Fears.
We dwell with fenrs on either hand
Within n daily strife,
And spoctral problems waiting stand
Before the gntes of life.
The doubts we vainly sefk to solve;
The truths we know are one.
The known and nameless stars revolve
Around the central sun.
And If we reap as we have sown
And take the dole we deal
The law of pain Is love alone;
The wounding Is to heal.
Unharmed from change to change we
We fall as In our dreams.
The faroff terror at our side
A smiling angel seems. .
Secure on God's all tender heart
Alike rest great and small.
Why fear to lose our little part
When he Is pledged for all?

newspaper correspondent, waiting to
see the representative, was the only

"It's been such an expensive year
for me," said Coakloy after the color

"that I do not feel that I can give
you any financial aid Just at this time,

your proposition and shall be only too
glad to give you all the moral support

Coakley courteously escorted the man
