THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, IBRUARY 15, 1913.
Mr. Kim Tong Ho,
Manager All Chinese 1). 15. Tcnin,
Your letter of February 11th has
been received, and the same has
been discussed thoroughly by the
Maui Athletic Association, also by
the members of the Team to go t
Honolulu. We regret very much
that you have attached so many
conditions to our trip, more parti
cularly the proviso that in case it
rained, you would pay iw $50.00
towards our expense. In discussing
your letter, we feel that the trend of
all your correspondence points mere
ly to the question of making money
for the "All Chinese Team." Whi'e
our Association would have been
pleased to assist you in realizing a
nice sum towards your trip to the
IN CHARGE OF
and Mrs. Hurst

Mainland, wo of course cannot take
the money-making part of it into
consideration. We believe the least
you could have done was to invito
us to come to Honolulu to play
one-two or three games, as best
suited you, and pay merely the
legitimate transportation and other
expenses. When you begin to pro
vide against rain, something over
which wo can have absolutely no
control, we feel that you desire to
evade the invitation, and under the
circumstances, we do not think it
fair to our boys to accept your pro
position. Furthermore when you
mention that in case it rained you
would pay us only 50.00. there
'would always be the question as to
just what showers constitute a rain,
or at what periods. In other words
there would be plenty of room for
questions to rise, and rather than
have any argument over the mutter,
we have declined your invitation,
although we must say with much
disappointment, as we had counted
on coming down, and had already
had good practise.
You will remember that when the
Chinese Team was invited to Maui
there was never any question as to
weather conditions or other contin
gencies. The Chinese were treated
liberally when they were here, just
the same as all of the teams that
have come to Maui during the past
Just to show you that the Maui
spirit is entirely different from that
shown by you, we will now extend
you an invitation to come to Maui
anytime before you leave for the
Mainland. All we ask you to do is
to notify us well in advance as to
the most convenient time. We
would like a Saturday game and a
Sunday game here. Now, as to ex
penses, we will gladly pay your
transportation, and other legitimate
expenses. Furthermore, we will
pay these expenses irrespective of
weather conditions- If it rains,
hails or snows, or if we are unfort
unate enough to be visited with a
fierce Kona, you can feel assured
that your legitimate expense will be
reimbursed by us.
Aside from this fact, we believe
we can realize enough from the
games to make up your expense,
even though we have no holiday
attraction or an overabundance of
tourists and visitors.
I would like to hear from you
again at first opportunity, and in
the meantime remain,
Very truly yours,
Secretary Maui Athletic Ass'n.
All is arranged for the represen
tation of Maui during Carnival
week. The princess has been
chosen, and she ist Mrs. Hannah
Morton. The lady has accepted
the "job" and now all she needs is
a good horse and some Maui roses.
This information was all given at
the meeting of the Maui Chamber
of Commerce on Thursday last.
"I've lived on Maui and know
most of the island like a book,"
declared G. P. Wilder, to a Maui
Nnws representative, "but I never
remember seeing the Kula district
looking so dry and forlorn, as it
does now. The crops are in a
fearful condition, and it is only in
the gulches that one can see any
thing at all growing."
"The pipe line was the salvation
of the Kula people, as regards
water for domestic purposes, but
there is still needed water for
Mr. Wilder went on to say that
in 1884, when he was living on
Maui, there was always a good
crop of something or other grow
ing in the Kula district, but that
there is nothing much now.
"I know that the cause of the
small rainfall is the wav in which
trees have, in the past, been des
troyed. The only hope for the
future, lies in the planting of trees
that will, when mature, attract the
rain bearing clouds. Mr. GilTard
i is right in his fight for forest re
serves, and the planting of trees,"
concluded the well known Hono
Mr. Wilder, while at Ulttpalakua
Ranch, had an experience that
made him think of the "desert
route" in the United States. Dust
was everywhere, and such a dust.
Fine as powder, and the kind that
It all came about, when the
"Kona" of last week came howling
across Maui. The wind nicked un
the sun-baked dust and drove it
into houses and everything else.
I There was no stopping the awful
stuff and, even with the doors and
windows closed, the dust found its
way in In clouds. Wet bags and
cloths were placed along the sills
of the windows, and in the cracks
at the bottoms of the doors. That
was no use, as the dust found its
way in through the smallest cracks.
The house party heaved a sigh of
relief when the "Kona" blew itself
out, and then began the job of
getting rid of the dust which, in
some places, was fifteen inches
The latest is a device to mulct the
te'epboiie company- It requires
prearrangement between the parties
concerned. A man in New York,
for instance, wants to communicate
quickly with another in Chicago,
lie arranges that he will call his
firm by name up on the 'long dis
tance phone and ask for Jones,
Smith or Robinson. Of course,
neither Jones, Smith nor Robinson
is connected with the Chicago firm,
but if a long distance call comes in
for either of this men it means a
certain thing in accordance with a
code that has been arranged pre
viously. Since the person asked for
was not found, and apparently as
the call was in error, no charge is
