THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, JUNE 14, 1913.
Tlie large airy assembly lmll of
Lahainaluna pchool was filled to
capacity before the opening liour
last Wednesday, for the (loul)le pur
pose of snital)ly celebrating Katne
haineha Day and the eighty-second
commencement exeruses of the
well known school on the hill.
The program opened with the
melodious Ijahainaluna School Song
followed by the invocation by Key.
H. 15. Dodge, which, after a well
rendered selection from the Glee
Club, gave plaee to a series of ad
dresses by the pupils of the graduat
All the vocal and instrumental
selections, were sang with that Stirl
ing feeding of esprit-de-corps, vigor
and wiiole-hearledness which is
such a delightful characteristic of
the more advanced type of college
and which appeal so irresistibly
both to adult and juvenile audi
ence. Such characteristics were pre
eminently demonstrated in- the
spirited rendering of Leslie's viva
cious "Hunting Chorus," a song
which incorporates such a dash
and swing in its scoie as to cause
an electric thrill to permeate the
assembly. As an effective antithesis
to the above, however, was the
plaintive softened melody of "Pua
Mohala" with its carefully con
trolled swells pianissimo and cre
The two original compositions of
John Kahananui and U. Kinoshila
on "West Maui" and "The Price
of War'' respectively, were especial
ly well composed and rendered, and
were greeted with much applause.
The former was an extremely inter
esting yet concise account of the
section dealt with from a scenic,
physic graphical and historical
point of view. The clear articula
tion and pleasing manner of the
embryo orator commanded imme
The manifold and diverse calami
ties brought on all nations as "The
Price of War" was brought forcibly
home to the audience by the young
author, who handled an imposing
array of complete figures with the
lieility of a Gladstone or Palmer
stone. There is certainly a brilliant
career in store for this young man
if he continues to improve in the
future as much as he appears to
have done during his recently term
inated stay at Lahainaluna.
The oration in English was deliv
ered by Rev. A. Craig Powdish who
has acquired quite a reputation
since coming to! the Islands for his
ability to give interesting and in
structing addresses on that most
difficult of abstract subjects
Mr. Bowdish chose as his topic:
"Habits," and by a fund of apt
illustrations gleaned from the lives

how right habits of thought could

demon jtrate how such habits be
came the fundamental bases of
oral intellectual and christian
life. Every word was listened to
with marked attention by the large
audience who, upon its conclusion,
signified their appreciation by pro
Ilev. Isaac Iaea, on the other
hand, conducted a humorous and
decidedly strenuous campaign for
half an hour, his remarks being
punctuated by repeated ripples of
laughter which at frequent intervals
broke out into 8torni3 of clapping.
In a neat speech Mr. C. A. Mac
Donald presented the eight be-leid
students of the graduating class
with their diplomas and the pro
ceedings concluded by all present
uniting in singing the Hawaiian
national hymn; 'Hawaii Ponol."
An extremely closely contested
tennis match between rival cham
pions followed, and, as a grand
finale, the many hundreds of visi
tors and students took an active
part in an unexpected but gene
rously provided luau; each person
going away much impressed with
the work of the school, and the
capability and courtesy of the staff
of Lahainaluna. The program of

there. The next thing that was
known was that Kapaa appeared in
the room and, drawing a five cham
ber revolver, fired point blank at
his wife. The bullet passed be
tween Mrs. Kapaa and the sick
woman, and struck a mirror on the
wall. Mrs. Kapaa then fled through
the house and, as she went, her
husband fired shot after shot at
Emerging from the house the
unfortunate woman ran toward
where Mr. Miller was doing some
ploughing. Kapaa kept up a vol
ley of shots as he pursued his wife.
Miller sang out to the madman and
told him to cease firing. He yelled
to Mrs. Kakaa to make for the
house again and to get hold of a
revolver that was in the bedroom.
The woman was, seemingly, dazed,
and she continued to run toward
The husband caught his wife
when she became tangled in a
barbed wire fence, and he calmly
knelt on her while he emptied the
used cartridges from his smoking
revolver and reloaded it in all five
chambers. While he was doing
this, the woman managed to get
away from him again. She then
ran, stumbling, toward the lower
end of the field. It was at the bot
tom of the gulch that Kapaa finish
ed his fiendish job. Shot after shot
rang out, and then the man was
seen to make his way up the gulch
and over the hill. Two Japanese
were instructed to watch the direc
tion the murderer went in and then
the police were informed of the
The officers were soon on the
spot and they made their way up
the trail that Kapaa had followed.
Then, in a clump of guava bushes,
the police came on the body of
Kapaa. He had once more reload
ed the revolver and fired one shot
through his heart. Death must have
been instantaneous, and thus the
murderer became a suicide.
The inquest on the bodies were
held on Wednesday and the ver
dicts were "murder and suicide."
