Levi Joseph were both nominated,
and it seemed as if a ballot was in
evitable. However, Joseph with
drew his name, and Makckau got
tho nomination without further op
position. WBNT SMOOTHLY.
As far as the rest of the work
done by the convention went, there
was no hitch at all, and everything
was disposed of in quick order. The
precinct clubs had been well drilled,
and everybody knew what to do
when, the time came for work.

and thei the platform was also
adopted. A minority report ncom

WORST OF BAD LUCK

Farmers Seeking Work.
Superintendent Starrett, of the
Marketing Division of tho Terri
torial Department, spent some days
on Maui recently. He traveled all
over the Kula district, and ho has a
sad talo to tell regarding the state of
affairs on tho mountain side.
UP AGAIN8T IT.
"The small farmers are up against
it.good and hard" remarked Starrett
to a Maui News man, "and quite a
number of them have had to leave
their farms and go to work on tho
plantations. Tho district looks aw
ful and all dried up. One would not
think, it was tho same district that I
visited some months ago.
The corn crops that looked so pro
mising has failed, and it is pathetic
to seo tho fino promised crops,
withered and dead. Most of the
cars reached half maturity, and then
stopped on account of the lack of
There has been no rain, and the
pipe line just gives enough water for
domestic purposes. Some of tho
people claim that, sometimes, they
run short of drinking water. They
fill small reservoirs when over they
can, as they know thero is a short
ago at times.
Tho variety of corn now planted,
takes six months to mature, and
that is too longT-under the present
conditions. Thero is, for say, three
months, sufficient moisture to take
care of tho growth. Then a dry
spell comes, and the tall variety of
of corn, which needs so much mois
ture to take care of the stalks wilts,
and the cars fail to mature.
Tho Maui Evangelical Association
held its semi-annual meeting at
Kaunakakai, Molokai, from Sunday
morning, Sept. 15 until Tuesday
evening, Sept. 17. Forty-nine pas
tors and delegates were present from
Maui, and about a dozen othors
from Molokai. Tho Sunday School
Association and the C E. Societies
held their meetings in tho after
noons, and tho church gathering was
in tho morning. On Sunday morn
ing tho Association was opened with
a sermon by Rev. H. P. Judd, fol
lowed by tho Lord's Supper.
Tho C. E. held a roll-call service
in tho evening.
Among othor matters transacted,
during tho convention the Bum of
81,500 was pledged towards tho
erection of a new church building
in the Leper Settlement, a commit
teo was appointed to arrange for tho
installation of the Rev. S. P. Ka

for tho Kaluaaha Church, and

It Is terribly hard on the farmers,
and I am advising them to go in for
onions instead. Onions can do well
with little rain, and a splendid
variety can be Jsed.
Tho white Belnnida onions is"
making a name for itself'on Maui,
and I have seen somo splendid lota
of the vegetable.
The onion will be the salvation
of Kula until irrigation is possible.
If water could be brought to tho
Kula district, the place would' grow
anything. Tho soil is the richest I
have seen, and the district would'
flourish like a garden if water was
Reverting to corn, Mr. Starrett
said that ho was going to introduce
a new variety of seed.
"I have some seed now that will
give arop ninety days after it is
sown," ho remarket, "and that is
just what is needed for Kula. The'
stalk of this variety of corn only
attains a height of three feet. That
will enable tho farmers to grow corn

The sample cars of thu new variety
