SCHOOLS NEED MICH MONEY.
Xi less a sum than $10!), 177 is needed for County of Maui Schools.
It is up to the legislators eleeted ly the people of this County to see that
all our needs are satisfied.
Of the sum nu'iitioned the major portion of the money is needed for
Teachers' Cottages and new School Houses. The structures are alisolute
necessities, nnd every effort must le made to ohtain the money to erect
All five districts, liana, Makawao, Wailukti, Lahaina and Molokai
must lierovideil for, ami the following summary shows just how the
money, when obtained, w ill be distributed :
Teachers' School Imp. New
Cottages. Houses. Grounds Furniture
Total 34,500 42,000 7,000 14,627 9,050 109,177
The schools of a country are its backbone and education is the great
est I won that can be granted anyone. Maui is up against it for funds
and a glance at the above table will explain how
MAUI will be well supplied with mails from now on. The new
schedule of the Claiidine and the visits of the Mauna Kea will
improve things wonderfully. There will be almost a daily
mail from Honolulu, and this island will be in closer touch than ever
with the capital city. It will also be possible for people to make flyiny
trips to Honolulu without losing several days. By taking theClaudine
at Kahului on Saturday evening one can have Sunday and Monday in
Honolulu and be back at work on Maui on Tuesday.
MONEY is needed for school buildings and other educational
purposes on Maui. The men elected to look after the inter
ests of this island should be fully impressed with the import
ance of the matter, and fight tooth and nail for the necessary appio-
priation In this column we publish a list of much needed -school
requirements. The Maui legislators should read the lis, very carefully.
THE governorship question is still causing much taek, more es
pecially on Oahu. The name of one man, E. M. Watson, is
coming more and more to the front. He is known as a brilliant
lawyer, and a man of fine charater. The Democrats could make no
better choice of a man to fill the Territorial Chief Executives' chair,
and their endorsement of Watson should be unanimous. .
The landing of passengers at McGregors is always an exciting event
and, to la ies, a dangerous one at most times. The Maui people who
kick every time they are compelled to leave the steamer at McGregors
have real cause to do so- For men the experience is bad enough but
when women have to be dragged up by the arms to the wharf deck, it
is time the Harbor Commissioners and Superintendent of Public Wbrks
got busy on some scheme to mend matters. Even Hie g.ng plank at
McGregors is too short. At times it is possible to use a plank if it
were long enough.
The Maui Chamber of Commerce is getting' busy on the proposition
and it is to be hoped that something will be done in the near future.
The spectacle of lady passengers being dragged through the air by their
arms is not a pleasant one.
We are in receipt of a copy of The Hawaii Hochi, a new daily Japan
ese newspaper, published iii" Honolulu Fred Makino, the Editor of
the paper, announces that the policy of his publication will be to en
courage Japanese to remain permanently in Hawaii and to work togeth
er for the benefit of the Territory as a whole. The paper is well gotten
up and should, along the lints indicated, do a lot of good for the Sugar
Industry of Hawaii.

With shipments of 1913 Packard
"38'' demonstrators goini; to all
parts of the country, more than five
hundred orders for this new car
have lx.cn received, the total of ad
vance sales exceeding $2,000,000.
Seven thousand craftsmen are bt nd
ing their efforts to meet this de
mand. To expedite the manufacture of
the "38" and future models, the
Packard plant, already comprising
thirty-seven acres of lloor space, i
Three buildings, constructed en
tirely of glass, concrete and steel and
of the most advanced type of design,
have been erected to conform to the
Packard factory's system of shop
units. The added room will per
mit of more rapid production and
is in keeping with the policy of sys
tematic expansion which has been
followed since the factory was start
The additions are practically com
plete and -will be ready for occu
pancy by January 1.
Ordinarily the task of directing
an industrial organization that em
ploys 6,000 men and that turns out
15,000 high-grade motor cars in one
year would be considered sufficient
to occupy one man's energies, yet
Henry M. Leland, advisory manager
of the Cadillac Motor Car Company,
Detroit, finds time to take ft very
active part in civic affairs. Mr.
Leland has always leen keenly in
terested in municipal government
and the conduct of a city's business.
His most recent activities in this
direction were the formation of the
Detroit Civic Uplift League and
Voters' Information Bureau, of
which he is president. The recent
spectacular and dramatic revelation
of irregularities in Detroit alder
manic circles would seem to indicate
that the automobile city is in ne d
of a non-partisan municipal league.
Detroit, as every one knows who
lias visited it, boasts of being the
city in which life is worth living.
The aim of the Detroit Civic Uplift
League, which Mr. Leland is pro
moting, is to make Detroit life worth
living. It is expressed thus:
'To promote and uphold upright
efficiency in civic affairs. To en
courage competent citizens of moral
integrity to become candidates and
to work and vote for such for nomi
nation and election to office in the
city of Detroit.''
This sentiment and the general
principles of the organization might
well appeal to other American cities.
The Declaration of Principles fol
"Econoiny""of administration in
civic affairs is best obtained b effi
cient men, of moral integrity, inde
pendent of political affiliations. To
such men we pledge our support in
their nomination and election and
in a faithful administration of their
duties when elected."
Forty minutes were clipped from
the Los Angeles-San Francisco re
cord over the inland or valley route
last week hy a-1913 Cadillac car
driven by Charles Soulea, a well
known racing driver. The Cadillac,
which left Los Angeles at 5 o'clock
Thursday morning, arrived in San
Francisco at exactly 10:05 o'clock
in the evening, setting a new mark
of 17 hours and five minutes for a
distance of almost 500 miles.
The car driven by Soules was the
one that covered 511 miles of the
roughest mountain and desert roads
in the Los Angelea-to-Phu'iiix road
race a few days before and finished
in perfect mechanical condition
During the Los Angeles-San Fran
cisco run no repairs were necessary
The record was broken in spite of
the fact thatthe road, in many
places, was like a sea of mud, that
muchtime was lost in turning out
for teams and that three men were
carried much of the way, as a pilot
was frequently necessary.
The record of 17 hours and 45
miuutes shattered by Soules in the
1913 Cadillac was one made by an
other Cadillac a year ago. That

mark was made by Beaudet when
the latter was cleaning up all the
records of northern California, so
apparently it took a Cadillac to beat
a Cadillac. Soules attempt with
the 1913 car grew out of a request
of Bob Fowjer, the aviator, for a
car to pace him from the southern
metropolis to San Francisco.
Soules did all his record breaking
north of Fresno. Leaving Los An
geles at 5 a. in. he reached Bakers-
field at 10:53. The car made Fres
no at 2:45 p. m. and Gilroy at 7
o'clock in the evening. A half hour
was consumed in Bakersfield to re
plenish the car with gasoline and
oil and another half hour was spent
at Fresno for the same purpose.
The record for the run from Los
Angeles to San Francisco by the
coast route, also held by the Cadil
lac, is 14 hours and 49 minutes.
The record for the run from Loe
Angeles to San Francisco and return
by the coast route is 32 hours and
35 minutes and by the valley route
39 hours and 8 minutes, both
marks being made by a Cadillac
