SATURDAY. - ..... MAY 3, 1913.
IS it not about time that Maui woke up and had a real Fourth of July
celebration that is a parade that would be a credit to this beautiful
island. A real up-to-date parade in which auto-trucks, private
automobiles and rent cars could take part. The number of machines
on Maui especially in the Makawao, Paia, Puuuene, Kahului, Wai
luku and Lahaina districts is growing larger every day, and the ma
chines that are at present in use, run close to the four hundred mark.
If all the business people get together and boost for a real parade,
there is no doubt that the affair can be made a success. The stores,
railroad company and other firms have plenty of auto-trucks. The fire
department has a fine wagon now, and the number of automobiles that
could be decorated and put in the parade is so great that Honolulu
would be put to shame as regards the turn-out.
Some of the "floats" could be arranged so as to illustrate the old Ha
waiian methods of manufacturing different articles and food of all kinds.
Samples could be thrown to the spectators. There are many ways in
which the "floats" could be made attractive and instructive. Tourists
who hear of the Maui parade would fill the Inter-Islaud steamers, and
all Maui would reap the benefit directly and indirectly.
If some hustlers will get busy and interview the business men and
the private individuals, Maui should be able to have a turnout that will
surprise everybody. The parade could start early on the morning of
the Fourth and, after proceeding from Wailuku to Kahului, could
either call a halt at the race track or some other central place where '.he
prizes, could be awarded. It is time for Maui to show Oahu and Ha
waii that she is not behind the times. Could not the Chamber of Com
merce start the ball rolling?
It did not take Oahu long to recognize the worth of a Maui man.
The appointment of J. N. S. Williams to the Utility Commission
will prove to be the best made for many a long day. "J. N. S." has
the rare gift of being able to clearly and concisely point out the mean
ing of a wilderness of words, and to place his hand on the kernel of the
matter; that will guarantee that any report signed by him will be the
If Wailuku only had a good ambulance the cup of joy would be full
to overflowing. The fire truck is a beauty and the police department
is well fixed in the way of automobiles. The sick of the district should
be remembered, and one human life saved by quick conveyance to the
hospital would more than compensate for the cost of an ambulance.
Think it over "ye city fathers."
To the ordinary man on the street the spectacle of Austria tackling
poor little Montenegro, just as.the sweets of victory are being sipped,
is a distressing one. The fair minded man cannot conceive why Aus
triabacked by the Powers can be allowed to butt in and take Scutari
away from Nicholas and his army.
Underwood declares that the Democrats are going to write the whole
of the new tariff bill so God help us all. The day of the soup kitchen
and the bread line is once more on top of us. The tactories will soon
shut down, and the prospects ahead for the next four years are as dis
mal as ever faced the United States.
A district that has many isolated one and two-room schools cannot
hope to show up as well as more favored localities. Maui is as good as
the rest of the school districts and, considering the handicaps worked
under, is better than some.
A man who clearly states that he has personal animus against anoth
er is not the proper individual to investigate even a dog fight he would
probably kick the under dog.
There is an absolute necessity for a road to Olinda, and the sooner
a survey is made and the work started up, the better it will be for
everyone in that district.
D. E. Metzger is good governorship timber and. barrincr E. M. Wat
son, is about the best man the Democrats could put forward for such
an important position.
WASHINGTON, May 1. In the opinion of Wilson the Alien
Land Rill of California violates the treaty. It is understood that
when the bill parses, Ambassador Chinda will formally protest.
WASHINGTON, May 1. The only candidate not eent by Secre
tary Lane to see the President, was McCandlesp, who saw Wilson on
his own account. It is a good sign fur WatBon that Lane arranged a
meeting for him. Lane does not consider Watson's physical condition
such as will prevent him from taking the office of Governor of Hawaii.
LONDON, May 1 Montenegro's stand is more conciliatory today.
Russia has urged King Nicholas not to oppose the Powers.
There was a visitor in Wailuku
last week who certainly noticed
some difference in the town now,
and as to what it was some time
ago. When "some time ago" is
mentioned it is meant that thirty
years have elapsed since George
Wells, of Honolulu, last put foot
on the soil of Maui. George is well
known and well liked in Honolulu
and he, years ago, used to pay vis
its to the outlying islands. Still,
for the long period of thirty years,
Wells has seen nothing of Maui.
His recollection of Lahaina and
Wailuku are of a kind that tourists
expect to find when they arrive in
these islands now-a-days.
"Well, I would not have believ
ed it is the same place as I saw
thirty years ago," said Wells to a
Maui News man. "Why the town
of Wailuku has gone ahead won
derfully, and the roads are simply
perfect. The trip around from La
haina in a machine is a treat, and
could hardly realize that such
changes have come about since I
was on Maui last.
"The busy look of Wailuku
and Kahului is fine to see, and the
way the automobiles fly around,
shows how well off the people of this
island must be. I have enjoyed
my trip very much and I will not
allow another thirty years to pass
before I come up here again!"
HONOLULU, May 2. Chief McDuflie has arrested two Filipinos
win) are suspected of the murder of a Chinese at Fort Shatter.
The police of Oahu are to have olive drab uniforms.
Pacheco and Woltera are after Whitehouse, but with little chance
There are stories in the Japanese papers to the effect that an
alliance between China and Japan is mooted.
WASHINGTON, May 2 The Senate is fighting over free sugar
today. There was a long conference with the President yesterday but
no definite conclusion was come to.
WASHINGTON, May 2. Kubio spoke against reduction of
tariff on sugar. The matter came up before the Committee of the
Whole and Wilson's tariff was adopted by a vote of 186 to 88. Later
Kuhio spoke again from floor of House. He declared that if sugar is
made free, the Hawaiian Islands will pass over to Orientals. "No one
else could live in Hawaii, because there would be nothing for them to
do," he concluded. The Democrats of the Pacific Coast and interior
mountain States were in conference with the President for three hours
It is believed Wilson will stand "pat" for free sugar and free wool.
Spo rting Spouts
The "T. B. M." Club had an
other session last Wednesday even
ing and some good work was done
by the bunch- The members are
all getting into shape for a big
show some time in the near future,
and that show is surely going to be
a marvelous one.
UUliards will soon reign once
more, as the King sport of those
who love the green baize. There
are some good players in Wailuku
ana tney want to nave another go
at the Kahului bunch.
It is to be hoped that a Hono'
lulu team pay Maui a visit on July
Fouith. The Maui boys want to
show the Oahu ball players that
there is only one Maui and that
Wailuku is its prophet.
Wailuku tennis should boom soon
The offer of Mr. Lufkin for the
use of his court, should help out
a lot. There is available timber
here tor a good team, and it is
time Wailuku took its place with
the rest of the tennis centers.
Duke Kahanamoku will have to
get into better form than he is
showing at present in order to hold
his title of world's champion sprin
ter. lie was timed to do 50 yards
in 25 seconds the other day and, of
course, that is not good enough for
a champion. Still, Duke will get
down to real hard work in the
water soon, and will get into his
' 'stride' ' long before the champion
ship meeting1n San Francisco.
T. D. Collins is doing well
enough as umpire of the Maui
league. Jie is nonest. ana that is
a great thing in baseball. Also,
when he gives a decision, he sticks
to it and cannot be shaken or bluff
ed. That is the best thing that
can be found in an umpire. Mr
Collins is not exactly dying to hold
the position and, if the people who
think his decisions have not been
correct, wish for a change, then
say so. Collins won't be mad at all.
There was a great time at the
Moose gathering last Wednesday
night, and no less than ten new
members were initiated. The lodge
was crowded, and the function went
off in fine style. There are still
some more men to be initiated, and
they will come up later on.
A most enjoyable time was had
after the lodge closed and refresh
ments were passed around; every
body appreciated the "supper" to
The Moose are getting stronger
in Wailuku and many new members
are joining the lodge. Some visit
ing members from Vancouver,
Seattle and San Francisco have
been on Maui lately.
THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF WAILUKU.
The invitation of the Lahaina
Tennis Club was very generally
accepted , and about 75 persons visit
ed the new Court on Sunday morn
ing. Wailuku, Paia and other
placeslwree represented, and some
of the guests from a distance showed
remarkable proficiency in play, and
were more than a match for the
home team. After a number of
games the Lahaina ladies provided
a tempting repast, Manager Hay
was congratulated on the success of
The new theatre building is re
splendent in its fresh coat of green,
with white trimmings. The con
tractor is doing his best to make
the structure fire-proof.
Lay.ng the concrete foundation
of the Kamehameha III. school
house was a long and tedious job;
but the carpenters are now very
busy in getting up the frame-work.
A flagpole, 61 feet in height, in is

Collector DunnV"town clock"

services in Lahaina at Hale Aloha.
J. J. WALSH Brother Bill and
I haa D. u. Li. ana Harola going
last Saturday afternoon, when we
got their goat at tennis by a score
of 6-2. It might have been differ
ent if a second set had been played,
as those Paia players always come
back strong after the first set.
W. H. FIELD-Well, the Inter
Island Company is about ready to
go ahead with the Maui excursion
proposition, and I expect the tour
ist trade to boom very soon now.
T. D. COLLINS Yes, I got
through without having to draw a
gun on the ball players. The game
was a good one and the crowd
