On Tuesday evening last there
was a hieeting of the Maui Racing
Association, and at it the annual
election of officers took place.
Some twenty or so members attend
ed the meeting, and much interest
was taken in the business of the
evening. Messrs. J. M. Cunning
ham, E. II. Bevins, S. 15. Kalama
and V. L. Stevenson were elected
members qf the association.
The annual election of officers
was then proceeded with and the
following gentlemen were honored:
V. T. Robinson, president, D. H.
Case, vice-president; W. F. Crock
ett, secretary and treasurer; execu
tive committee, Louis von Temp
sky, D. T. Carey and Angus Mc
Phee (chairman.)
There was a general discussion
as soon as the election was finish
ed, and the subjects of purses,
rules and passes were thrashed out.
R. A. Wadsworth stated that he
thought the purses offered were too
large, and that, consequently, the
association was in a hole. He said
the association should be self-supporting
and that while he
recognized that good purses are
necessary to attract horse owners of
the other islands, he thought the
executive committee should "cut
their cloth according to their

Wailuku is to bo congratulated
upon having such a public spirited
body of mon as the Knights of
Pythias. That order always works
for the good of the town and of the
whole of the Maui. The order is
very strong, and tho members are
lways ready to help out in any
scheme that will add to the beauty
of the placo they live in.
The latest development is that
the Knights have taken over the
wedgo shaped piece or land that lays
between Mill road and Main street,
near the junction of the two tho
roughfares. The land and the old
shacks on it have been an eyesore
for inanv years past.
The scheme is to clean up the
land, lay it out in terraces and
plant grass and decent shade trees.
There is one (ino tree now growing
on the block and that will help out
a lot.
TI10 land, when laid out accord
ing to the plans of the Knights,
will form a fine littlo park. The
present unsightly shacks will be
removed, and the visitors to Wai
luku will gain a better imprsssion
of the approaches to the town.
A long lease has been obtained of
the land, and the K. P. people are
going to devote considerable money
and tune to the beautifying of tlio

tion, as a whole, in session, later
on, added races to the program
and thereby increased the expenses.
He also added that the association
had expended no less than $4,000
on the Kahului track. ''It is the
abuse of the free pass that robs the
association of much money each
year. Too many people come in
as dead heads and that is all there
is to it," concluded Dan.
J. J. Walsh declared that a mem
ber should be entitled to a pass for
himself, wife and children. He
also said that the horsemen should
pay for their stalls at the track.
D. H. Case then took the floor
and he had a few words to say
about things in geceral, and passes
in particular. "Don't let us run be
hind. The association is in debt,
and it is up to the members to see
that there arc no abuses of the pass
system. I move" that only mem
bers be admitted free to the track
in future."
This motion stirred up J. J.
Walsh, and he declared that some
concession should be made to the
members who pay initiation fees
and yearly dues. "As long as I am
a member," he declared, "I want
my wife to go free to the races

Unless something has happened

Dollar" of the famous Dollar line,
will be arriving at Kahului, direct

The M. S. Dollar is bringing a

consigned to tho Kahului Railroad
Company, and will get quick dis
charge. The ship is tho first to come
direct to Kahului from tho Orient,
and her advent will keep tho cus

Tho coal on board tho . steamer

Man Stabbed
By Filipino
Knife Used In How Outside Theatre
AntoneCambra lias Narrow
Still another crime is to be laid
at the door of the "little brown
brother." At the present minute
a Portuguese locomotive driver,
named Antone Cambrais laid up in
the hospital with threeknife wounds
two on his shoulders and one on
his right leg. The last named
wound is the most dangerous, and
the man lost a lot of blood before
he was taken to the hos'pital.
The stabbing took place last Sat
urday night at Puuneue, directly
in front of the theater- It appears
that a number of youths were con
gregated in front of the show house
and some or them were throwing
orange skin at the Filipino. The
latter is alleged to have remon
strated with the youths, and than
to have accused Cambra of attack
ing him.
According to Cainbra's story, the
Filipino rushed at him and slashed
away with his knife. The first
blow caught Cambra on the shoul
der and cut through his shirt and
flesh. The second blow also land
ed on the shoulder and caused a
deep gash. The third stab was
through the right leg of the victim.
The friends of the engineer then
managed to drag the Filipino away
from Cambra. It was seen that
the wounded man was losing a lot
of blood, and efforts were niaclfc to
get in touch with the police.

Claim Burglar
Is In Jail
Porto Rican Is Charged-With Stealing
From House at Waihee
Loot Recovered.
After some weeks of waiting, a
much wanted burglar has been ar
rested, and the credit must be giv
en to Police Officer Gomes, of Puu
nene. The prisoner was taken in
to custody last week, and he had
bat little to say about the charge
against him. Manuel Rosa
is the man, and he already has a
police record for stealing.
The burglary was committed
some time ago at Waihee, and the
house entered was owned by a
plantation laborer. A watch and
some other articles are said to have
been stolen.
The police were notified as to the
number of the watch and other de
tails. When Gomes was shown a
watch that a Puunene plantation
hand had purchased from Rosa,
the officer knew that he would soon
get the thief.
Rosa, when arrested denied
everything. A visit to his room,
however, resulted in two more
watches being discovered, hidden
under the roof. When confronted
with this evidence he was dumb
founded. He stated, when on his
way to jail, that he had thrown a
third .watch into a cane field. lie
volunteered to go into the field and
get the watch, if allowed to do so
by the police officer. Gomes had
heard those kind of stories before,
however, and the cane was very
tall! There was nothing doing,
therefore, and Rosa was conveyed
to prison.
There is a probability of Rosa
only being charged with one of
fense. The evidence is conclusive,
according to the police, and if found
guilty, the Porto Rican will be put
away from temptation for a long
time to come.
Ghastly End
Of Laborer
Ghastly was the discovery made
in a cant' field at Kapuna, Waihee
Division of the Wailuku Sugar Com
pany, yesterday morning, by a few
laborers of tho plantation. Tho
chaired remains of a man were
found lying among some burned
trash, and the body was horribly
mutilated it is thought, by dogs.
The right leg was missing, and
thero was evidence of the visits of

lie had been away from work on
the plantation for some weeks and,
on Thursday, applied for a job to
Section Overseer Sopor. Tho over
seer put Silva on to the rather easy
job of burning oil the trash left in a
field that hail been cut. That was
tho last seen of tho man till his
body was found yesterday morning.
The supposition is that Silva,
who was about fifty-five years of
age, was stricken by a fit, and foil
into the trash he was burning off.
He had no chance after that and
was, it is supposed, burned to death.
I he police took hold of the affair
and a coroner's jtry was called to
investigate the death of Silva.

a helpless state and that.afterwards

been a bid for this class of trade
ever since the military was estab

it has found its way through the
doors of tlio retailers, and much
goes to tho establishments of the
wholesaler because the exchanges
buy in larger quantities than tho
average retail merchant can handle
with profit. There are exceptions,
naturally, and they prove the rule.
As the ''feed'' is to be given in an
ticipation of big returns, it seems to
me that the men who comprise
the Chamber of Commerce are those
who should have charge because in
tho main they are not retail mer

man drove a knife into his stomach,
and then proceeded to turn the in

he had made a large gash, and was

pull him around. The old fellow
expressed annoyance at being res

his intention of looking around for
a revolver.

as to the old man's sanity, he was'
