THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, APIRL 19, 1913.
. Theater Has
About ten o'clock on the even
ing of Friday, April 11 , an alarm
of fire was turned in from the Maui
Theater on the corner of Main and
Market streets. Louis Soares, the
well known baseball player, was the
one who saw the flames first. The
fire had just started and the scorch
sides of the big piano in the theater
now testify to the heat that was
generated. No great damage was
done, however, as willing hands
soon got to work and extinguished
the flames before they had reached
It appears that Soares was re
turning home from a visit to some
friends when he saw a light in the
theater. Knowing that the per
formance was over, Soares won
dered what the flickering light
might be. He approached the
theater and peered through a win
dow. He then saw that a fire had
started in the "well" in which the
piano stands, and that the whole
place was in danger of going up in
smoke within a few minuses.
Soares ran up the street and
yelled "Fire" many times. Some
people came out from their houses
and ran down to the theater. A
bucket brigade was formed, and
soon water was being thrown on
the fire. In the meantime Soares
and another man ran all the way to
the police station and got hold of
the reel kept there. The fire bell
ran out and the whole town
was aroused. By the time the reel
and hose were well underway, the
news was sent up the street that
the fire had been extinguished.
The escape from a big fire was a
narrow one, and only for the fact
that Soares happened to pass along
at the particular time he did, the
theater, and perhaps, half the town
would have gone up in smoke.-
It is surmised that the remnant
of some mosquito powder, careless
ly thrown on the floor of the theater
caused the fire.
Passengers returning from Hono
lulu report that the main topic of
discussion in the metropolis among
the business element is the Free
Sugar . tariff question, with very
few in Honolulu looking at it from
the brighter side. Clerks seem to
be worrying at the possibility of
losing their positions, business men
arc not stocking up, contemplated
improvements have been held up,
and money is not so free.
A great deal of credit is due V.
L. Decoto, District Overseer for the
Laliaina District, for the excellent
condition of the road fropi Laliaina
to Olowalu. A better piece of road
cannot be found anywhere in the
Territory, and the News is pleased
to extend the thanks of the com
munity to "Billy." We have it
from him that he intends to keep
up the good work until he reaches
the foot of the Pali. Oh, why
didn't we find Billy long ago for
It is reported that there will be
quite a number of appeals from the
Tax Assessor's figures this year.
Some of the appeals have already
been riled although there is still
time for others. The Tax Appeal
Court has nt yet been appointed
by the Governor.

a "Psychic Room," fitted up to
take photographs called spirit"
photos whose subjects certainly had
not been told to look pleasant before
they were snapped, or if they had
been they heeded it not, for their
expression did not indicate that
they were having a very merry time
of it. They were surrounded with
a dense haze or fog, or maybe it
was steam. Some persons have
made a fad of collecting spirit pic
tures, but the ' creepies" will never
be as popular as the "movies.''
