A BIG LOSS.
UNCLE SAM'S plans as regard Pearl Harbor being a repair de
pot for the warships of the nation, will be delayed for some time
to come. The destruction of the big .dry dock that was to take
care of the largest ships afloat now, or for the next ten years, is a ter
rible blow, and causes an immense loss of money. However, the work
will be at once commenced again and will, without a doubt, be carried
to a successful conclusion. Still it is a great pity to see four years
work thrown away for nothing. The United States is powerful enough
for any ordinary occasion, but when nature conspires, and. says you
cannot pin me down with piles and concrete, there is nothing much
more to do, than start operations in a more favored locality.
That Maui is going to have a constant stream of visitors pouring in
soon, there is no possible doubt. The plans of the Maui Hotel Com
pany to take care of tourists from the time they leave Honolulu till
they return to the capital city, are now all complete, and the result
should soon be seen. That we have the best of scenery and the larg
est extinct crater in the world, is known most places. That the trip
to the summit of Haleakala can now be made in comfort, is news to
many people, and it is mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kemp, who will ascetid
the mountain on Wednesday next, to advertise to the world the fact
that the "House of the Sun" can now be visited in comfort and safetv.
The payment of the county laborers by the week is a move in the
right direction. It has always seemed strange that the county, with
a big credit balance at the banks, could not pay men what was owed
them, each week, instead of keeping the men out of their money for a
month or so.
Local news has filled the Honolulu papers lately, and there are many
who enjoy the change. Telegraphic news from country towns on the
mainland does not always satisfy people who can read their own main
land papers later on.
Washington's birthday will be
properly celebrated in Wailuku,
and the school children will take
an important part in the affair.
Today, of course, is the great day
but, yesterday, the Wailuku school
children held patriotic exercises
that attracted a large crowd.
The children were well up in
their work, and the tiny tots went
through the program in good style.
The exercises were started shortly
after one-thirty o'clock and the
crowd was well on time.
After the exercises were finished,
Judge Kingsbury made an address
that was a masterpiece. The judge
dwelt on the glorious history of
The Flag, and told the story of
Washington's life. The address
was one of the best ever delivered
in Wailuku and at the end there
was hearty applause-
.We will soon have the Kihei boat landing to arrive and depart from,
"when mailing a journey to Honolulu. That will be a boon that all
those who have had much dealing with McGregor's landing, will

Jaiiuies(! C'abiiH't has stirred up the
local subjects of the Mikado. A
full list of the oiiliiiict officers has
been forwarded to Wailuku, and it
reads as follow-: Prime Minister,
Gonbey ViuiiiUiioto; Kei Ilara,
Minister of the Home Department;
Shinken Mikado, Minister of Fore
ign Attairs; Kon kiyo lakahashi,
Minister of tin,- Finance Department;

Mincru Saito, Minister of the Navy.
Great preparations are being
made for the big masquerade bull of
the Moose which is to be held in
the Armory on the evening of Sat
urday, March 15. The affair pro
mises to lie one of the most brilliant
of years, and the Maui people are
looking forward to the event with
the anticipation of a glorious time.
The Armory will be lighted by
electric lamps, for the first time,
and the effect should be beautiful.
Special decorations are to be used,
and the hall is expected to look
better than it ever has before. The
floor is to be polished till it shines
like glass, and the dancers will
have no kick coming on that score.
The music will be provided for by a
first class quintet club, and the
dreamy waltz and flighty two-step
will be indulged in to the limit.
The affair being a masquerade
one, the demand for masks and
dominos has exceeded the local sup
ply. Many of the costumes have
been ordered from the East, and it
i predicted that there will be some
very handsome ones to lu seen on
tlu; evening of March 15. The price
of the tickets for the ball arc fixed
at a rate that will trouble no one.
Half a dollar will admit one person
and that surely is cheap enough for

E. R. BEVINS Tennis is surely
booming on Maui, and most of the
Kahului men are beginning to look
as fit as fiddles.
DAN CAREY There will be
some great sport in Honolulu today,
and the Maui horses, I hope, will
be seen to the fore.
GEORGE COOPER (Hana)
We are all sick at Hana. It must
be the weather.
IRVING I1URD Wailuku is a
fine place, and the whole of Maui
is charming. My niece enjoyed her
triu to this island very much. She
comes from Kansas State and now
thinks that Hawaii is the best place
in the world.
AD. CIIISLETT Quite a num
ber of business men found that they
had very important matters to at
tend to in Honolulu last week. I
wonder if the horse races had any
thing to do with the trip to Hono

we could not arrange the baseball
game with the Chinese, but every
one knows how we stood in the

The Japanese Methodist Church
There is a good story going thdi
rounds about a certain distinguished
foreigner who lately visited these
islands on behalf of his government.
The visitor was shown all over the
gr up by a territorial official and,
when not engaged inspecting sugar
plantations, was always in tow of
the Hawaiian official. Churches,
museums, revival meetings, Cham
ber of Commerce, Merchants Asso
ciations and other forms of "enter'
tainment" kept the foreigner busy
and, when he at last broke loose,
and was put in charge of another
official, he remarked in a pathetic
tone of voice: I would like to zee
someting new. I can zee all those
kind of tings in Europe. Will you
please sh w me the hula?"
That query was the signal for
general loosening up and the distin-
guisneu visitor nau ine time ot ins
life on one island, where he saw the
real thing in hulas and in a coun
try meeting house at that!
The visitor saw everything worth
seeing, after that, and geisha girls
luaus and all kinds of novelties kept
him busy for the balance of his stay
in Hawaii. It was a tired but happy
man who waved adieu to his new
friend and sighed, as he stepped
onto the steamer: "Ah, zee hula
It is divine. I am happy now. In
Europe I can zee all the churches I
care about, butthe hula, ah me! "
Dr. Mori's Sons
Two sons of Dr. Mori, of Wai
luku, are now settled in Wailuku.
One, Dr. Tokito Mori, a graduate
of the Hakaido Agricultural College,
has just returned from Japan. He
will take up Ins profession of a
veterinarian and already has a

school teacher, and he is also nn

x few private pupils, and several
white children are among them.
The art of Jiu Jitsu is being taken
up a lot lately, and even girls are
shown bow to defend themselves
effectually from attacks of hood
It was reported from along the
coast of Maui that the Inter-Island
steamer Claudine struck the reef at
Alau, whi n on her way to Hana
from Kipahulu, this week. The
shock is said to have been a rather
heavy one, but the steamer kept on
The Claudine has had bad luck
lately, from all accounts, and the
steamer is said to have grounded at
least twice during the last few weeks
No damage is said to have been
done when the Claudine touched the
reef, and it is stated that she just
grazed the rocks.

The Stork Express.
The Stork is a very old bird and
crotchetty to a degree, and sensi
tive and revengeful past belief. He
stands waiting on one foot, biding
his time and a chance to ' 'get even . ' '
For the life of me," laughed
the good-natured pink Cupid of a
little chap under his wing as the
old personal conductor cut a swath
through the high upper air, circling
down-ward, "I haven't an idea of
where I am, and you say you're
going to leave me but where is it?' '
The Stork revealed the baby's
future home, far below on earth in
a city full of electrical signs and
But why" which is the ever
lasting infant question are you
going to leave me there? I can't
see any reason why a baby should
be left at that number. Can't you
see they aren't even interested in
me, my parents-to-be? I have a
feeling that I shall always be a
stranger from a strange land in
that house. Look at that lady
whom you're going to make be my
mother! Look at her! She's already
given all her affection to "
'Enough of such baby talk,"
frowned the Stork, but his eye was
lighted with a humorous gleam
Tis not a question to be settled
by a pratting infant such as you
are. It is enough for you to know
that I have my reasons for heading
with you toward that house."
If I might know but one of
those reasons," the Pink Baby
The Stork again revealed the
house to his passenger, bidding
him look well into a room that
even a pink baby who had never
seen one might recognize as a
nursery. The Stork pointed at a
strange looking beast that now
occupied this room and many others
on the same floor, being mightly
pampered in eaeh.
'Tis that vile-tempered Boston
bull pup," said the Stork. "I am
but using you to put his cold nose
out of joint!"
The Pink Baby whimpered.
I use you to revenge other
babies that his kind have kept out
of warm and loving homes. Too
often I've had to leave a baby on
a cold and windy tenement door
step because the real nursery that
was his rightful home held such
tenant as this. I use you now to
send him to the doghouse in the
back yard, where he belongs.
