THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1913.
(Continued from Tune l)
tlie proposition is a good one, and
there is no hesitancy in the pay
ment of the assessment.
The New Zealamlers are having a
good time here in the city. Society
has taken up the young ollicers and
the masses are doing the best poss
hle to make their stay here pleasant.
Captain Ilalsey says it is the bright
est spot in the voyage.
Vagrant items have appeared in
the Honolulu newspapers during
the last few months referring to the
political associations of the collector
of customs, Mr. Stackakle. It is
. said that he has openly declared,
since the tenant of the White House
is a democrat, that he lias always
had a feeling that the democrats
were the real people of the United
States It lias been supposed, for
thirteen years past, that the col
lector was a dyed-in-the-wool He
publican, so that the assertion, real
or alleged, that his faith was a differ
ent breed, was a shock and a sur
prise to those who have known him
since there had been two political
parties in the islands following in
principles those on the mainland.
A recent item has peeved Mr. Stack
able, and those close to hiin say he
has a right to le dissatisfied with the
expressions in the newspapers, when
the items are incorrect, not to say
malicious in intent and purpose. It
may be well to quote the collector:
"Never have I told anyone I am a
Democrat and, just as often have I
said I was a Progressive. In politics
I am a Republican and not afraid
to say so. Further, my commissiom
expires in 1910, and my record in
ollice is responsible for mj enter
taining a belief that I will not be
asked to give up the position of col
leetoruntil the commission expires
At all events Mr. Stackable has an
immeasurable volume of confidence
in the man who doles out the pa
It is said that the rumors of
changes in local offices were started
by Candidate Watson, but for what
reason is not stated. It may be that
the wish is father to the thought, or
it is possible lie brought the news
with him from the White House
Johnny Wilson seems to be the man
with a character that holds much
vindictiveness. And he (is show
ing it in his attitude toward Jim
Coke who hopes, with some reason,
to be U. S. district attorney. No
one is in a position to say how far
Johnny's influence will carry, but
it is believed in some quarters that
before the dye is cast there will be
a reaction and John will be set back.
Metzger has returned with the
opinion that Watson is to lie the
governor; a very graceful admission
considering the fact that he has
been touted for second choice.
With this opinion conies the state
ment that the company having
charge of the breakwater at Hilo is
to lie reorganized and Metzger re
tires from the management of the
work. There has certainly been
the hand of fate in the construction
of that most important addition to
Hilo. It has been rumored in and
out of Hilo that the company has
been in dillieulties and not long ago
work on the big trail of rocks
ceased all together.
John M. Giles, known pretty
well all over the islands as a news
paper man, is the live wire in the
promotion of entertainments for
those who may visit Hawaii. The
Volcano House will be his first love
and the island of Hawaii his affin
ity. It looks as though the people
of Hilo are determined to boost the
place as it should be. Lorrin
Thurston seems to have started the
bug and from present appearances
it is propogating well. The big isl

stranger and so bus Maui for that
matter, the difference being that
Maui is rather holding its leauties
under a blanket while Hilo is strip
ping them of all covering, and call
ing the attention of the world to
the attractions. There is as much
of a chance for Maui as any place
in the islands; all it needs is the
move and a few dollars to keep it
going for a season or two.
The weather during the past two
days has been unusually warm and
uncomfortable for everybody. The
leach is crowded daily by people of
all sorts who go to get away from
the heated city. Every one is look
ing for a change that will make it
cool. The evenings are, as usual,
delightful, a trade wind cooling the
atmosphere and making life worth
living. Many persons are sailing
for the coust on their annual vaca
tion, and among them is William
Kinney the patriarchial farmer of
Kaurnana, which lies on the hill
back of Hilo. Mr. Kinney will be
operated upon in San Francisco
and when he recovers his strength
will continue on to Nova bcotia
where his son the ex-Honolulu at
torney is engaged in farming a five
thousand acre tract of land which
his father gave him. The old
gentleman says he could never get
anything out of the land, so he
turned it over to Willie to let him
have a try. William senior is
eighty-two years old, and as keen
in the transaction of business as he
was twenty-five years ago and just
as full of old Nic. He has amassed
a fortune in lands and in loaning
money on real estate at fair interest
only, and he is in no sense a tight
wad. He walked into the Matson
Company office when he came from
Hilo the other day and paid eighty
five dollars for a stateroom and
never batted an eye. This was in
addition to the fare from Hilo
charged by the company for he
came down on the Wilhelmina.
Talk about hard times there is
nothing to it.
There was a rumor on the street
today that, owing to a desire on the
part of the owners, there is to be a
reduction in the overhead charges
at the various theaters of the Con
solidated Amusement Co., by the
firing of a portion of the managerial
force. Of late, until within a
weekf business has been rotten
mainly because there has been no
attraction warranting a crowd going
to the shows. With a sensational
photo-play the box office showed a
healthy change which the manage
ment hopes will keep up.
News came yesterday that Duke
Kahanamoku will stop in San Fran
cisco for a time to see more of the
Golden State. It is what some of
his close friends here expected when
he left; in fact is was believed he
would remain on the coast and lie-
come a professional by entering
some one of the vaudeville circuits.
The boy's education is not such us
will fit him for a clerkship where
the salary would ever amount to
anything, and once he is out of the
championship class there will be no
demand for hity at any of the meets.
For that reason some of his advisers
have told him that now is the ac
cepted time for him so far as money
making goes and he had better get
in. Hob Kaawa, the sweet singer
of the Kaai club, one of the men
who went away with the swimmers,
but not attached to the team, has
gone into vaudeville, not as a swim
mer but a singer. His brother is a
member of an Hawaiian quintette
club somewhere in the States, or
he may be doing a single turn, and
is drawing big money. According
to critics he is not so good in the
voice line as Bob. Another thing
thut may have kept Duke, aside
from any desire he may have had
to see the scenery of California.
When he was here he unconsciously
captured the heart of a woman
whose husband ia said to dote on
her. Somehow, the marriage was
an unfortunate affair, for their tastes
were out of joint, and what ever
affection the man may have felt for
her was not reciprocated. The
couple lived at the beach .-ind the
wife met Duke frequently, jo often
in fact that it caused some alarm
and not a little disgust among the
friends of the champion. It was
felt that their relations might inter
fere with his training, that he would
grow careless and decline to work.
But the attentions were largely on
the side of the woman ; Duke passed
her up on many occasions, so far as
the public could judge by appear
ances. A couple of weeks before
the swimmers left the coast the
woman announced her intention of
returning to England and, to a few
of her closest friends, among the
beachcombers this word is not
used in the accepted meaning of the
term she said she would get a
divorce and marry Duke. Whether
the boy had been consulted in the
matter deponent saith not but, on
June 10, ' she sailed away. The
swimmers left on the 18, and
whether the beautiful woman who
held Duke closest in her affections
stopped in San Francisco until he
arrived has not been written by any
of the boys who went away.
This morning Prof. Bryan is in
the limelight as a candidate for
governor. The delay in Washing
ton is giving too many the time to
figure out on their chances and get
in line. The photo libraries of the
local newspapers should be filled
now with portraits of those who are
sure of the job.
