r Hana Is Mad
Newsy Letter From Lively Village
Wharf And Buildings Now Have
HANA, Oct. 1. The new sche
dule of the Claudine will not benefit
liana, as the steamer will only
make one trip each week coming
and going the same day. The
Claudine is always in a hurry, and
always seems to have little time.
She comes in at 4 A. M., blows her
shrill whistle and, of course, all the
villagers have to tumble out of their
beds at this un-Godly hour, to go to
the landing to care for freight.
Every thing has to be landed; then
passengers go on board at 7 A- M.
and, should you fail to make con
nections, you get left. What hap
pens next? Up goes the anchor
and she glides out of the harbor at
half speed. When off Nahiku, the
engine bell rings and she slows
dQwn to quarter speed. The ques
tions then arises from the ignorant
passengers. "What's the matter?"
'Oh, nothing," replys the seasoned
traveler, "we have to slow down, as
we do not wish to make Kahului
before 12, noon." "What for?"
comes again from the passengers.
"Well, you see if we get in before
12 noon, the Kahului R. R. Co.,
charge $8 more for wharfage."
For the sum of $8 all this incon
venience is caused to passengers.
Five hours from Hana to Kahului
to avoid paying eight dollars I It
would be better to lay out in the
harbor and save the whole $16; so
that people who have business, and
tourists who wish to see a few of
Maui wonders could have a little
' more time to make the rounds.
The dirt, we hope, will soon fly
at Nahiku and Keanae extension.
John H- Wilson has put in the low
est bid and, as the Maui Commis
sioners want the work done in a
hurry, "little Johnnie" of Oahu
Belt Road fame, will be given the
contract if they can possibly see,
their way clear, as the money avail
able is $7,000 less than Wilson's

The hungry ones are now looking
forward to the many days of feast
ing soon to take place. The Poli
tical orators of Maui will soon wend
their way over the Koolau trail into
Keanae, and make their rounds of
the District. "Pig and Poi" will
be the slogan from now on until
November 10th, as it will take at
least a week after election to end
the celebration. So fill up your
pockets boys because the Mayor of
Keanae, the Right Hon. Napihaa
will be on hand to meet you with
