the exception of the chairman,
P. Pogue, who gave way to the new
Supervisor at large S. 15. Kahuna.
The change in soluns was made
without any fuss and the retiring
board did not throw any bouquets, to
its "successors." Mr. Pogue, on
the stroke of noon, arose from his
chair and the rest of the supervisors
followed his example. The new
chairman then took his place at the
board, and the new supervisors were
then in chargo of Maui afi'airs.
There was nothing much doing
on Monday or Tuesday, as the
board had to get organized properly
before proceeding with the County
business. However, later on in the
week, the solons got busy on many

Kaliiilui Hostelry Will Be Built In
Near Future Want Haleakala
At tlie regular, monthly meeting
of. the Maui Chaiuberof Commerce,
held Inst Wednesday, the report of
the committee appointed to investi
gate the Kahului and Haleakala
hotel projects, was read by Chair
man W. O.Aiken. The substance
of the report was that while the
Kahului hotel will, sonic time in
the future, be built, the Haleakala
hostelry proposition will not be
taken up till a good road is con
structed to the summit.
A committee composed of W. O.
Aiken, W. II. Field and J. N. S.
Williams met last Monday at Ka
hului. The hotel matter was then
considered, and the result was that
a site containing two acres has been
selected Tor an hotel. The block is
near the Claudine wharf, and some

said that he would be willing to

Louis von Teinpsky, the well
known ranch manager, met with a
rather serious accident while play
ing polo at Makayvao last Saturday.
He tore the muscles of his right
arm, and is now obliged to carry
the nienlber in a sling. No serious
results are anticipated, but the in
jury is a very painful one that will
take months to' cure.
The accident happened during a
practice game, and was caused
through Mr. von Teuipsky's mal
let getting tangled up among the
hoofs of his mount. The player
held on to his stick and there was
a terrific strain for half a minute.
Then the muscles gave way, and
the damage was done.
All the friends of the genial
manager hope to see him his own
old self in the near future.
Two very welcome changes are
announced by the Inter-Island
Steamship Company. The sailing
hour ol the Claudine from Kahu
lui, has been changed from five
o'clock on Saturday afternoon, to
four o'clock. The steamer will al
so go direct to Honolulu, and will
reach tho capital at about eleven
o'clock at night.
The Mauua Kea is now scheduled
to sail from Honolulu at three
o'clock on Saturday afternoons.
She will reach Lahaina at a reason
able hour, and then continue on
her way to Hilo.
Since the removal of the Clau
dine" has caused hardship to people
with goods to ship to Ililo fiom
Kahului, the Inter-Island people
ate said to be going to put one of
their -mall steamers on a run that
will take in Kahului and Hilo.
The Wailuku Poi Factory manager
.will be glad to hear this news.
Another cripple has been added
to the list and, as is usual, the
blame can ho laid on the illegal use
of "giant powder.'' The victihi is
a lad of thirteen years, and his
right hand has he n blown off. At
least, the giant powder shattered
the hand so much that tho doctors
hail to amputate at the wrist. Tho
youth, whose name is Manuel Bo
thello, resides at Makawao.
It appears th t the lad obtained
a stick of dynamite somewhere or
another and, thinking that it would
make a fine fire cracker, placed it,
end up, in the ground. lie then
proceeded to light a fuse and then
the inevitable happened. The lad
was rendered unconscious by the
shock, and had a narrow escape
from bleeding to death. He was
conveyed to the hospital where the
doctors at oilco operated on him.
Sheriff Crowell, who is investi
gating the accident, is" curious to
learn where the lad obtained the
dangerous explosive. There is a
rumor going the rounds that the
County storehouse at Makawao has
been broken into, and that many
articles, including some sticks of
giant powder, are missing. ,
ATow at Work
That the elected representatives
of Maui, in both houses, will have
assistance in the drafting of bills,
is now assured. The legislative
committee appointed by the Maui
Chamber of Commerce has gotten
together, and is now ready for
work. The chairman of the com
mittee is W.F. Pogue. K.R.Bevins is
the secretary and D. H.-Case is the
treasurer. The object of the com
mittee is to find out what legisla
tion the people of Maui want, and
to draft bills accordingly.
The supervisors were invited to
name one of their 'board to act
with the legislative committee.
Chairman Kalama was selected,
and he will help out. As, he has
had considerable experience in the
legislature, his assistance will be

W. O. Aiken presented a peti
tion from the Haiku homesteaders
to the Maui Chamber of Commerce,
an Wednesday last. The petition
ers prayed that the association help
them to get roads into their home
steads. From S10.000 to $15,
000 in needed to build the roads.
Aiken explained that there is no
money available for such roads at
present. Later 011 roads will be
built to the tracts, but that may be
three years from now. The idea
was to try and get the legislature
to advance money for roads and to
pay the amount back in the future.
It was moved and seconded that
the legislative committee take the
matter up. The Chamber went on
record as endorsing the petition.
