SATURDAY, FEBRUARY l, 1913.
THAT there should he more trouble between the captains of the
InUr-Is'and Steamship Company, and the directors of that con
cern, is to be regretted. It was thought that, when the agreement
was come to last year, after the "strike," that there would be no further
trouhle for at least three years. It appears that that idea was wrong,
and that the same old row is to start up again. It is tough on the trav
eling public and, if the steamers are held up again, there should be an
investigation by a commission. That the residents of the outside islands
should be isolated and, in some cases be threatened with starvation, is
an outrage. A stop should be, in some way, put to the possibility of
having traffic tied up. Some kind of a law Bhould be passed that will
make it a crime to cause inter-island trade to be crippled. Arbitration
would seem to be the best way out of the difficulty. As the matter
stands now, the captains appear to have the best of the affair. No im
ported captain could safely make the landings along the coasts of the isl
ands of this group. It takes men years to learn the pranks of the tides,
waves and currents around our coasts- On the other hand it is a strange
state of affairs when a company cannot hire and fire its own employees.
It is to be hoped that some agreement be come to and that another strike
will not cause the loss of thousands of dollars.
PROTECT THE CHILDREN.
THE terrible story told in our news columns of the immorality of
young girls, is something that should wake up the people inter
ested in "foreign" missions. The depravity of the children con
cerned in the horrible affair goes to show that there is something lacking
in the way the girls and boys of some classes are taken care of by those
who are responsible for the youth of this country. The whole matter
was discovered by accident and yet, for a long time past, there have been
at least thirty youths and men mixed up in the criminal affair. It seems
strange that such a state of affairs could go on unknown to those officials
who are supposed to keep track of houses of ill-fame. The young girls
have testified to driving about in automobiles with men, and it would
naturally be supposed that it would not take a Sherlock Holmes to un
earth something suspicious in that. There is something wanting, and
the sooner it is made impossible for children to enter a life of shame, the
better it will be for Maui and the whole of the group.
THE scarcity of cottages in Wailnku is doing a go-d deal to scare
people away from the best and most healthful town in the Ha
waiian Islands. Within the past few months there has been a de
mand for houses that has amazed people who have been here for some
years. That any man who would build some cottages, could easily lease
them to good tenants, there is no doubt at all. What is wanted is a
cottage of two bedrooms or five rooms in all. The cottage should be
elevated some five or six feet from the ground and lattice work would
enclose the space under the house. That type of cottage is going up all
the time in Ililo, and there is a constant demand for more. There
would appear to be a good opening for some man with money to spare
and he, besides getting a good return for his investment, would also de
rive the benefits that come from an addition to the population of the
Maui people should get busy and send in suggestions to Secretary
Bevins who is working on the plans for the proper representation of this
island on February 22, in Honolulu. Maui's float should be the best in
the Parade, and it will be if the real Maui spirit is shown in regard to
It would be a pity if Maui were not represented by a float on February
22, in Honolulu. Still, from the reports that have reached this office,
it would seem as if sufficient interest is not being taken in the affair.
Maui will probably have to bo content with a "Princess' and let it go
By the death of "Bill" Langton, the newspaper fraternity loses a good,
loyal friend and one who was always ready to help out a brother in dis

Washington's Birthday is rapidly approaching, and it is to be hoped
that Maui people will not be barred from taking a trip to Honolulu, by
a strike among the Inter-Island employees.
Last night, at the Maui Hotel,
the Elks of Maui gave a smoke con
cert in honor of Brother C. D. Luf
kin, who recently returned from an
extended tour of the United States.
There was a large gathering of the
brethern and the affair was a most
The guest of the evening was
warmly received, and the story of
his trip was listened to with inter
est. Each and every one of the
Elks vowed that, some time or an
other, they would go and do like
wise. The auto trip made by Mr.
Lufkin appealed very much to all
the rest of the Elks.
During the evening a fine pro
gram of songs and musical selec
tions was rendered and the fun
was most enjoyable. The party
broke up at a late hour, and cheers
were given for all concerned in the

The cocoanut trees and tropical

(This is the end of the road for
vehicles.) Saddle horses, with
competent guide, will be waiting,
and the journey will be continued
to Kahakuloa passing through an
cient Hawaiian villages, where
modes of living have not changed
greatly during the past half cen
tury, owing to the lack of landings
along the precipicous cliffs and be
ing inaccessible except by horse
trail. The scenery is grand beyond
description, and affords delightful
marine views, unsurpassed in the
islands, as well as scenes of histori
cal interest of Early Hawaii, which

drop to a cinder strewn floor half a
mile or more below. The summit
of the mountain is well above the
usual cloud belt, and from this
magnificent vantage point, the en
tile island spreads out below the
observer like a great colored map;
while all of the islands of the
group, with the exception of
Kauai, may be seen easily in clear
weather. The great snow-capped
peaks of Mauna Kea and Mauna
horses are procured for the remain

continued to Olinda, 14 miles from
Paia, an altitude of 4500, before
mounting horses for the trail ride
of 8 miles to the summit.

THE HALEAKALA TRIP.
Haleakala (House of the Sun),
is naturally the object of chief in
terest to tourist or scientist on the
Island of Maui. The highest point
of its rim rises 10,032 feet above
sea level; while from the edge of
the great bowl, 20 miles in circum-
Loa, on Hawaii, loom up in the
south as though scarcely a dozen
miles away, while the actual dis
tance is upwards of one hundred.
The trip to the summit is made
from Paia, the terminus of the Ka
hului Railroad, from whence the
distance is about 22 miles. One
night and most of two days are re
quired for the round trip from Paia.
From Paia the traveler drives to
Makawao, 1500 feet in elevation,
and a distance of 7 miles, where
their stay on Maui.
The above program is a beauty,
and the very fact that, instead of
traveling to Wailuku by the old,
well known road, the visitors and
Honolulu people, for that matten

to Wailuku, should attract' many

in starting this "personally con
