THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, APIRL 12, 1913.
Two bills are at present pending
in the legislature which are of es
pecial interest to the Kuiaha-Pau-wela
homesteaders, although both
are of general application. Both re
late to construction of roads in settle
ment tracts. Senate Bill No.5l(Rice)
authorizes the Land Commissioner
ft to make agreements with the sev
eral county boards of supervisors
Wot the building of these roads, pay
ment of same to come from monies
paid in by the settlers for their pro
perty. As these payments cover a
period of years, however, the coun
ties would be expected to advance
the necessary funds and be reim
bursed as payments are made.
The other bill is known as House
Bill No. 140, introduced by Repre
sentative Goodness, of Maui. This
measure provides that the Land
Commissioner may borrow from
the general fund of the Territory
y4 such amounts as are needed for
homestead road purposes, not ex
ceeding sixty per cent of the ap
praised value of the lots to be
served, the same to be returned to
the treasury as the settlers pay up,
together with five per cent interest.
The bill makes no provision for ap
propriating any money from the
general fund, and there might not
be any available when attempts
were made to apply the new law.
It would not be the first time that
legislature has authorized the
spending of money which didn't
Rice's bill also leaves the matter
of getting the roads needed in
doubt, since it putsth e matter up to
the supervisors. If county funds
are short, or there should be an in
disposition on the part of the Couu
ty fathers to kokua, the settlers
are likely to find themselves just
where thev were at first, m case
this bill is passed. It seems reason-
4 ably certain that one or the other
of the bills will be passed very
shortly, but it remains to be seen
whether or not either will hurry
up the much needed roads.
The question of asking the Board
of Agriculture and Forestry to pro
hibit the shipment of pineapple
plants to Maui from other islands,
came up recently at a meeting pf
the pineapple growers called for
that purpose, and was discussed at
considerable length. From infor
mation brought out at the meeting
it seems certain that unless plants
are brought in, the plantings con
templated for the immediate future
will be much retarded, since there
are not plants enough on the island
to plant possibly more than a third
of those demanded. The objection
to importing plants is the danger
of bringing in some of the diseases
said to be troubling the growers
particularly on Oahu, and from
which Maui seems to be pralically
free thus far. It was the consensus
of opinion, however, that it would
probably be a mistake to prevent
any shipments of plants whatever
but it is hoped to effect a close
onranization among the Haiku
growers, by which all plants may
be bought through a single agency
' ' which shall be required to make
most rigid inspection of the plants
before purchase, and to take such
other precautionary measures as
may be thought advisable.
That Maui will very sooif be the
leading pineapple island in the
Territory now seems certain. Not
only are most of the homesteaders
making plantings, the aggregate of
which will be large, but other in
terests as well are preparing to
plant larire acreages. The Haiku
Ranch is at present breaking twen
ty or thirty acres of pasture lands
near the Haiku Cannery which
will add materially to its plantings
and should produce pines of the
The Japanese interests are very
1 active at present. The Japanese
Cannery at Pauwela is being en
lamed so that it will have nracti-
ally double its present capacity by
me tune the summer pack comes
on. 1 Ins cannery had dmculty in
handling its offerings last seasofl,
it is said, but these will be a good
eal heavier in the future. It is
reported that a hui of prominent
apanese from Oahu will piant sev
eral hundred acres of pines near
'eahi, just beyond the Kuiaha
homesteads. The men have been en
gaged in pineapple growing in the
Wahiaga district of Oahu, but ow
ing to the greatly reduced yields in
that district in recent seasons, they
are turning their attention to Maui.
Although all of the homesteaders
the original Pauwela-Kuiaha
tract were, under their lease with
the government supposed to be liv
injr on their lots by the first of
April, a number of them have been
granted extensions of time by the
land office, on various excuses
Some of the extensions are for only
few months, and none of them
are longer than next fall. Among
those who have been granted these
extensions are F. G. Krauss, H.
L. Sauers, Miss Florence Wood, E-
Blanchard and D. B. Newell.
C. C. James and E. G. Bartlett,
both of Honolulu, moved their
families to their homestead within
the past ten days,
Contrary to most expectations,
the Mill team at Puunene did not
do as well as was .expected in the
'Triangular" tournament that has
been going on at the mill courts for
sometime past. The Ineld team
showed up so strongly that that
bunch put it all over the rest of the
In addition to the matches played
prior to last Saturday, and which
have already been reported, the
following contests were brought off
during last week. Campbell and
Rattrav went down in defeat to
Taylor and Lougher by a score of
6-1, 6-2. The go was a good one
although the score would seem to
indicate a weak contest.
Another match played was that
of Murray and Maclaren against
Campbell and Rattray. The latter
pair again lost by a score of 6-1,
6-2. In fact Campbell and Rattray
refuse either to win or lose by any
other score than 6-1, 6-2' . By a
strange coincidence every set they
have played has been won or lost
by the "hoodoo" score.
There is now rejoicing down
among the Field staff of the II. C
& S. Co., and the reason is that the
Field players won the tennis tournu
niont that hna been going on for
sometime past. 1 he Mill team
was expected to about win the tour
nament, but all calculations were
swept aside when the Field men got
going in proper style.
1 he last lew matches played in
the tournament were as follow
MeGerrow and Medeiros lost to
Thompson and Murray and the score
was, 6-1, 6-0. Lougher and Tay
lor went up against Murray and
Ihompson, and one set each was
the result. The score in this match
was. Taylor and partner won 6-4
and lost 0-2.
The final totals, as regards game?
were as follow; Field, 176: Mill 151
and Olhce 114. 1 he clean cut
victory of the Field players was well
deserved and. although the other
teams thought that they had
eood chance at the start, they hud
to admit that the Field-as a whole
nut up the best lot of games. The
cup now rests with the Field staff
but the rest of the teams will have
another chance some day to again
contest for the trophy.

Makawao and Wailuku Members of
Association Held Very Successful
On Friday, April 4, the meeting
of the Wailuku Makawao Teachers'
Association at the Paia School was
called to order by the president,
F. W. Hardy, at 10 a. m.
After a prayer by the Rev. Craig
Bowdish and the choice of Miss
Scholtz as secretary pro tern., the
following program was rendered:
1. Song By Paiaschoolchildren.
2. 'Ci-7 Work" which was ex
cellently demonstrated by a class of
third grade pupils under the direc
tion of Mr, Anjou.
3. A paper entitled, "Drill" in
which Mr. II. M. Wells maintained
that much drill was most necessary
in all branches of study he dis
tinguished between drill and repeti
tion, in that the former always had
a purpose in view which the latter
4. Recitation "Mark Twain and
the Interviewer, ' in which the
dry humor of its author was well-
portrayed by Mrs- Sandstedt.
A lesson on "Construction in
the Primary Department," was
given by Mis3 Spicer, of Puunene,
who caused a class of Paia School
children to deftly manufacture
pretty paper lanterns using Manila
paper for material. JNliss i?picer is
an enthusiastic advocate of the de
velopment of the constructive in
stinct in children. She exhibited
quite a number of pretty specimens
of paperwork accomplished at Puu
Miss Misner also exhibited three
stylish girls' dresses made by Puu
nene pupils under the teaching of
6. An address by Rev. Mr. Bow-
dish upon The Law of Recapitu
lation," which was an exposition
of psychology as especially auplied
to child-study. The law of recapi
tulation is that the main points of
our civilization are constantly being
reproduced in every individual of
the race. Those leaders of thought
who go beyond the limit are Btyled
reformers. Anger, an emotion of
the mind caused by pain or injury
is most valuable in the formation of
character when raised into scorn
for wrong done or righteous indig
nation, but harmful when it degene
rates into malicious revenge. Mr
Bowdish showed himself a master
of the subject and was listened to
with much interest.
7. "Ideals in Teaching Reading,'
by Mr. Copeland who declared that
the authors of some readers now in
use in our schools overshot the
mark when they announced that
the use of their books would
develope a taste for good literature
spiritual qualities of character, etc
i he ideal oi teaching the average
pupils to read ordinary English
fluently was sufficiently lofty.
8. ' The Balkan War," by Mr
W. I. Wells was interesting as
elaborated the historic 1 causes
leading up to tho present war.
9. "The New Course of Study,'
by Mr. Hinckley was a sprightly
exposition of tho money difficulties
encountered by a country teacher
of three grades in attempting
follow the new course oi study re
cently created by a committee t
supervising principals. He foun
no limit or suggestion as to th
method of teaching of three grad
in a room.
10. The annual election of officers
resulted in the choice of Mr. Wade
as president, Mrs. McKay as vice
president, and Miss Criekard
A vote of thanks was passed
favor of Mrs. A. L. Case and tl
lady-teachers of Paia School for the
