BILLBOARD IIOKKOR. v
THK billboard nuisance has struck Maui and already a nionstiosily
is to be seen on llie beautiful "I'eacli' road that forms the most
attractive drive on this island. The billboard is alone at present,
ard it is evidently a "try on" to see how the public will stand for the
whole of the road, from Kahului to Wailukti, being blocked in on the
mauka side with boards that beg of people to either Take Tiny Tots
To Tophct or try some kind of dope that will remove any old complaint
from the human system. Just imagine what the beautiful marine
parade will look like within a few months if the bill liend is allowed
to get in his deadly work. Why, even the cool mountain breeze will
be cut oil and the autoists might as well be driving along King street,
Honolulu, as far as getting a view of the mountains of West Maui is
concerned. Those who rented the site of the billboard just below the
power house should be at once notified that Maui wants nothing of the
sort, and that a campaign similar to that conducted on Oahti may be
THE PALI ROAD.
SOMKTIIIXG should be done to improve the "Pali1' road and
that much used thoroughfare should be widened in several
places. It is all very well to say that the road is alright it is
for one car at a time but, when two cars meet on some of the stretches
there is a strenuous time for both chauffeurs. The road is of great
importance and it would be a better scheme to make it half as wide
again than to spend thousands of dollars away in some "neck of 'die
woods, where roads lead to nowhere and end the same way," as re
marked by a prominent Wailukan some little time ago. If the job of
widening the whole road is too expensive, then at least, let some por
tions of it be broadened and white posts be placed in the centers of the
turns where machines will be compelled to keep to their right sides

TUB RIGHT SPIRIT.
THK fair play of the British was challenged in a recent issue of the
New York Press. It was done in a spiteful sporting article writ
ten by one of the real "twist the lion's tail" bunch. If the
"sportsman" who wrote the rotten article is decent at all, he will now
acknowledge that Britishers are right enough. The latest example of
fair play is that shown by the British referee in the International polo
games. The referee calmly did his duty, and penalized his home team
half a point, and cost them the game. And you may depend there was
no "kick" from the British gentlemen, who are fair to the backbone
in every department of sport.
Wli are in receipt of a communication from Mr. A. Hay, of
Lahaiua. Mr. Hay takes exception to a statement of our
Lahaina correspondent to the effect that the Hay homestead is
blessed with a cow, calf, two linnets, two canaries, three dogs and nine
ducks. Hay also denies that other interesting items regarding the
"clubhouse", as forwarded by our correspondent who has always, in
the just, proved to be a reliable news gatherer, are true. Hay goes on
to say that he objects to seeing his name in the Maui Xkws. Well,
H -iv c;mi rest assured that his name and aii b idy else's will continue
to appear in this paper providing that Hay and the others ever com-
plish enough to make their names of interest to the general public

George R Carter always speaks straight out from the shoulder, and
his remarks about President Wilson are justified in every way. The
schoolmaster should have been out in the world a little, battling for a
living, before being called to the high office which he obtained through
a lluke. In the business world a man who does not keep his word,
soon gets it where the bird is alleged to have sustained the shock
Wilson promi.-vd not to injure any legitimate industry. What does he
think he is doing to the domestic sugar industn fostering it or, may
be, protecting it? Xo one has any use for a trickster, or for the kind
of man who lets Bryan run the office for him.
Duke Kahanainoku has once more proved his wonderful speed in the
water. If Duke has any sense, he will make hay while the sunshines,
and coin a few thousand dollars by exercising the only art he has any
knowledge of. In Australasia alone, there are thousands of dollars
waiting to be gathered in. Amateur sport is alright for those people
who have professions or good trades to fall back on, later on in life.
But, for a youth like Duke to throw away every chance to make money
for the hollow glory of being an amateur, is flying or swimming
rather 111 the tace ot Providence.
A sign of the times is that Maui is attracting more attention every day
and that the tourist business is being boosted for all it is worth. The
new scheme to issue combination excursion tickets that will take in the
Maui horse races and the trip to Haleakala, is a good one and the 111
ter-Island Company will handle their end, while the Maui Hotel Co.
Ltd. will do the needful on this island. The proposition is a fine one
and the people wbo make the trip will be able to see the races, visit Iao
alley and go to the summit of the big mountain in record time, and
t a liuiiinuim cost.
