WAILUKU, MAUI, T. II., SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 1913.
LEGISLATORS HEARD AND

Maui entertained a large body of
legislators last Sunday, and the
visitors saw the sights of Lahaina,
Wailuku, Paia, Haiku, Kula and
Kahului. That is to say, some of
the solons visited each place and
gathered some idea of what is need
ed in the different localities.
The party landed at Lahaina on
Saturday night, and spent the even
ing there. On Sunday morning
the visitors visited the proposed
site for the new wharf at Mala.
The lawmakers were shown the
place where it is thought a ships'
landing should be built, and every
argument that could be brought to
bear, was exercised.
After breakfast the party came
over to Wailuku, and then a round
of sightseeing was started. Some
went to Kula and saw the Sanita
rium. Julius Aseh, of thet House
Committee took notes on the situa
tion there, and promised to bring
the matter of the needs of the Sani
tarium before the people who han
dle the appropriations. A sum of
$200 per mouth is needed, accord
ing to Dr. Durney, and there
should be no trouble in getting that
modest sum granted.
Quite a large party of the visitors
went on the special excursion of
the Kahului Railroad to Haiku.
The pineapple cannery was visited
and, although it was Sunday, a
couple of demonstrators were on
hand to show how the pines are
pared, de-cored and sliced. The
legislators were deeply interested
in the work, and showed a livelv
interest in the matter of raising
and canning pines.
A visit was paid to the Haiku
homesteads and at E. O. Bora's
place a deputation of the home
steaders was ready to tell of their
wants, and to urge upon the legis
lators the necessity of roads that
will allow of the easy access to their

When the news came through on
Thursday night that the All-Ha-
waii polo team had defeated the
the famous "Slashers" by a score
of 8 to 5 goals, the telephones
were kept buzzing conveying the
good news. All Maui is proud of
Frank Baldwin and of the Oahu
members of the team.
It will be lemembered that Frank
Baldwin was badly injured in a
game some weeks ago. He was
unable to play in several games
and the All-Hawaii team was, con
sequently, much weakened for its
important engagements in Cali
fornia. 'However, Frank played on
Thursday afternoon and our team
beat what is regarded as a picked
Now that Frank Baldwin is back
in the game, it is to be hoped that
by some means or another, the All-
Hawaii team manage to go to the
Eastern States and play the best
teams that can be produced there.
In fact there are many people who
would like to see All-Hawaii go up
against the English team.
Colonel Blanch B. Cox, of Hono
lulu, will give an Illustrated Lecture
on "A Trip Through the Holy
Land," at tho Town Hall, Wailuku,
Wednesday, April 1G, at 8 P. M.
Tho views illustrating the lecture
were nearly all taken by tho Colo
nel or her companion, and are of
the finest quality in detail and
coloring. Those who have had tho
privilege of hearing the Colonel give
this lecture in tho Churches and
halls in Honolulu, can speak for
tho excellenco of it.
At Halo Aloha, in Lahaina, tho
lecturo will bo given on Tuesday,
tho 15th., and at tho Salvation
Arniy Hall, Wailuku, April 17.
Admission will be free, and all aro

On Sunday last, while the lecis-
lators were in Wailuku, there were
several luaus given and they were
all well attended. One of the most
enjoyable was that given by Deputy
Sheriff Ferriera, at his Iao home.
There was a large attendance, and
the best of everything was laid out
for the delight of the visitors.
Mr. J. Garcia, who had charge
of the press party, took his guests
to the Ferriera luau, and the news
papermen had the time of their
lives. The scribes some of whom
were malihiuis enjoyed every
minute of their stay, and two of
them at least declared that they
wanted to stop on Maui altogether.
The other luaus were also splen
did and were well attended. The
legislators were given the glad
hand, and they were entertained
in the best possible fashion.
Harry Kalawaia, ayouth of twelve
years or so, is in serious trouble
that may end in his being sent
to the Industrial School for a term

fessed to the robbery, and will co
up before the Juvenile Court.
The robbery took place on March
31 and, on April 2, Deputy Sheriff
Ferriera had the lad in custody. It
appears that the boy climbed
through a window and annexed
the coin that was laying on a table.
Robberies are becoming few and
far between around Wailuku, and
the Sheriff has his officers on the
job all the time.The cleaning up of
the town is going on and many

move on to new pastures.
During tho past week thero has
been a case going on at the Circuit
Court that has attracted many
"oi)lo to the courtroom The oaso
was that in winch William Moss-
man was charged with burglary in
tho first degree. It was charged
that he broke into a saloon at Ala

The case aroused much interest
as thero were two men alleged to

ward, lie and Mossman were work

Uakawao. On November 21, of last
year, the job was finished and at
four o'clock in the afternoon, tho
two men went down to the saloon
and had a drink. Then, Edward

store, fahoitly afterward they re

changed, says Edwaid, and the
witness and the accused returned
to the saloon Edward asserts
that a pick was found there by
Mossman, and that the 1 atter tlinn

saloon door and entered the pre

declares that he stood on the ve

Edward went on to relate his ad

The native swore that tho two of
iheni went up the road to Miner's
place and hid some of tho liquor in
tho yard of the house. Some drink
was taken into the house and con
sumed by Mossman, Henry Miner
and Edwaid. Miner, on the wit
ness stand, swore that he was awak
ened by Mossman and Edward and
was told by them that the saloon
had been broken open by them and
tho "booze'' stolen.
Edward's story was not shaken
as to material facts, upon cross
examination. There wern contra
dictions regarding times of certain
occurrences, but nothing much was
brought out that lessened tho value
of the man's story to the prosecution.
For the defense, witnesses stated
that Mossman came home alone to
the Miner home and that Edward
arrived later on. Henry Miner's
story of tho men telling him thai
