THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, MAY 31, 1913.
Auto accidents and unto speeders
provided much news during the
week. Fortunately there were no
visry serious results from the many
minor accidents that happened and
although most of the stories gath
ered in strength as they went the
round of the town, there was noth
ing much to any of them.
Mr. Maclaren, of Ptiunene, had
some pilikia with his new ear.
First came a blow-out and then a
dive into the warehouse where the
radiator of the car was injured.
The next on the program was the
stunt of Mrs. V. II. Field who,
when on the road from the "Beach
House,'' found her brakes would
not hold and the car, consequently
rolled backwards into a dangerous
position. However, all's well that
ends well, and Mrs. Field and the
children escaped injury.
Just as this story was being
digested, the news that Charlie
llottel's car had been in a smash
up, made the rounds. It seems
that the popular Charlie was taking
a number of friends from the church
festival when something went wrong
with his steering gear. The conse
quence was that the car did stunts
for a while, but Hottcl soon man
aged to stop any further wildness.
There was a badly scared bunch
that got out of the car as soon as it
came to a stop.
At the police court on Monday
morning two men were fined 810
each for exceeding the speed limit
on the road near the power house.
The drivers were let off easily this
time, but a stiff line will be given
them if ever they appear before
Judge McKay again.

On the evening of June 21, the
opening sacred concert that will in
troduce the new organ of the Union
Church to the people of Maui, will
be held. On account of the same
evening having been selected for the
opening of the new store of the
Maui Dry Goods Company, the
church concert will begin early, and
will not be as long as usual.
The organ is now being installed
and Messrs. J. E. Varnum, E. Gic-se.-cho
and W. Dingle are doing the
work. These experts are each hand
ling his own department, and the
work is being rushed as much as
possible, Mr Varnum cannot re
main on Maui after Juik 21 and,
therefoie, the trial of the organ
must lie made on that date.
'The organist for the occasion will
be A. 15. Ingalls, of the Central
Union Church, Honolulu. The clioir,
which will be under the direction of
Mr. L. F. Jones, will lie increased
, by many voices and Gounod's "Gal
lia," which is considered to be the
most beautiful oratorio, will be ren
dered. Mrs. Jones will carry the
solo work. Tickets for the concert
may be obtained at the Baldwin
National Bank and the People's
The new organ was built by the
Austin Organ Company', of Hart
ford, Conn. It is run by electric
power and has 593 pipes, an Orgo
blower, tube pneumatic piping
(1020 feet) and, altogether is a
The Austin Company has the re
putation of having made some of
the sweetest and best toned instru
ments in the United States. The
nninufacturers are the sons of a
famous organ builder.
Boxing seems to be a dead letter
on Maui, and it is just as well it is.
That is, if first-class goes between
decent pugs cannot be arranged
Third raters and fights between un
trained mon are an abomination.
the Self Appointed Critic
Could critics, e'er they criticise
Lift up the mystic veil,
That ever shadows their own eyes,
When they, their friends assail.
Or coidd they know the reasons why,
This thing or that is done,
Or seeing through the error's eye
Known all his plans, begun.
Or could they analyze each act
As though they were their own,
They then might realize the fact
They are not their seeds sown.
They would not say "if I were you,
I'd do the thing this way."
For if they were you, they would do
The things you do each day.
Thus many noble acts are spoiled,
By this; "If I were you,"
And many noble efforts foiled,
By those who misconstrue.
So from your own esteemed eye, '
Just pluck the tiny mote, '
And let the other fellow try
To row his own small boat.
You cannot know what has been thought
'And planned with earnest care.
You cannot know just what he ought
To do, nor how, nor where.
He's got his motive for his task,
Just let him climb life's hill.
And do not check him just to ask,
Why you cannot break his will.
He has his load to carry up,
So do not pile on more.
For each man fills his bitter cup,
Why should you run it o'er?
