THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, AUGUST 23, 1913.
On Saturday evening last the
official opening of the Iahaina
Armory was celebrated by a splen
did dance to which a number of
Wailuku people were invited. There
were over four hundred people
present at the ball and the best of
good times was had by everyone.
The floor was in excellent condition
and the cool sea breeze made the
hall feel as if it were located in a
far different climate to that of the
The reception committee met
everybody and the master of cere
monies saw to it that strangers got
introductions to partners for the
giddy waltz and festive two-step
There were two luaus during the
afternoon and evening and the best
of good things were found in
abundance. The second luau was
provided by the "boys" of Com
pany L, and they "did themselves
proud" over the affair. The danc
ing was carried on till the small
hours and then everybody wended
their way homewards feeling hap
py although tired.

and one that insures thorough in
struction in tlio "revealed'' word
that Ezera took a trip to Paradise
Some of the lady witnesses, on the
stand, in the present suit for divorce,
declared that they never saw Ezera
"instructing' females in the man
ner described by other witnesses.
Still other witnesses said that
Ezera was fond of bathing and that
he liked to have a lady member of
the church with him. This was
also denied. Mrs. Kauhimahu,
however, admitted that she was in
the habit of kissing Ezera whenever
she left the house or returned to it
after a trip down town. These
were brotherly kisses, however, and
her husband had no right to get
worried over them. That did not
seem the right sort of dope to
Moses, and the kissing and various
other little incidents caused him to
doubt the platonic friendship of his
wife and Ezera.
Attorney Larnach made a strong
attempt to get the pair together and
to get them to wipe the slate clean
and start afresh. There was noth
ing doing along those lines, how
ever, and while the husband said
he would not live with her, the wife
said she would rather go to jail than
resume relations with Moses. That
being so, it was up to the lawyers
to convince Judge Kingsbury one
way or other.
Judge Kingsbury, yesterday
morning gave his decision in the
matter. He granted the petition
for divorce and freed the unhappily
mated pair. Moses is happy. The
ex-wife resumes her maiden name
and Ezera still does business at the
same old stand The Judge advised
the woman to keep away from

The fancy diving of Wren West
coatt and Taylor was a feature of
the Puunene swimming carnival.
The two experts did some fine
stunts, and the popular Wren
showed that ho is .ready for any
difficult feat that anyone can sug
gest. "Bill" Lougher and his partner
did very well in the annual tennis
tournament against Honolulu.
They won their first set G-5, and
had 2 to 0, in the second set when
the rain spoiled everything.
Myers and Richardson did not
seem to be able to get going proper
ly and. at times, neither seemed to
exert themselves to the limit. These
two fine players should have done
butter than they did against Castle
and Lowrey. They were beaten
G-2, G-0 and there must have been
something wrong somewhere.

chance to go up against Castle and
Lowrey. The I'aia pair would have

won both their sets.
The Puunene relay swimming
team was a good one hut not quite
fast enough for the Honolulu boys.
Will Roth'h last lap was a very fast
one, too, and that settled tho affair
easily enough for Oahu.
The Labor Day horse races in
Honolulu should bo good. The en
try list should show a large number
of horses in each event.
So far, Maui has done tho usual
thing and showed up in brilliant
shape on the polo field at Moanalua.

a glance, that tho "Rest" is practi
cally a Maui team for, with the ex-
ceplion of Sam Baldwin, all the
players are residents of this island.
Tho Wailuku gym is ruining
along alright. Jack Grace has left
for pastures new, but Dan Carey is
said to be thinking up new features
that will attract more members to
the fine hall.
There is talk of another billiard
tournament and it is a good idea.
Billiards is a fine game and takes a

The Abbe Henri de Genouillac,
who has just returned to London
from the excavations at Babylonia,
believes that he has found the ori
ginal of the Biblical Tower of
The Abbe was sent out on a
mission of research to Kl Ahymer,
about eighty miles south of Bag
dad, and a short distance from
Euphrates. Here he laid bare the
remains of the primeval City of
Kiss, one of the earliest capitals of
Babylonia, far older than Babylon
itself, aud uncovered an immense
palace, similar to the early royal
buildings discovered elsewhere in
In the middle of the great court
yard of the palace were the ruins
of an imjncnse high tower named
"The Temple of the Foundation of
Heaven and Earth," and sacred to
the national god of Zamatua.
This temple with its strange
name is, thinks the Abbe de
Genouillac, the original of the
Biblical legend of the tower which
should reach from earth to heaven.
Statuettes and vases were found
among the ruins, showing that the
latter were not later than the reign
of Ham Murabi (2100 B. C.) The
Abbe's discovery is thought very
important by Biblical critics.

On September ,", the members of
the Maui Gleo Club will sail for the
mainland, via Lahaiua and Hono
lulu. Before leaving, the boys will
give a concert in the Lahaiua Arm
ory and, if it is as good as the one
they gave in the Maui Theatre last
week, the armory should be hardly
large enough to hold the crowd.
There arc eight singers in tho
club and among them are some of
the swcclf:st voices in the islands.
Tenors, baritones and bassos are in
cluded, and tho instruments that
are played range from the violin to
tho ukulele. The musicians are ex
perts and when they start up a
swinging waltz or a festive two-step
"rag," the feet of the audience
soon begin to beat time.
Joe Machado is tho manager of
the troupe and ho has gathered the
following singing boys: Georg'
Kaia (who has had a glee club o
his own for many years past), Joe
M. Phillips, John Macatilay, Fred
Yoeller, Kama Apo, John Moore
and Jacob Bright. The boys should
make good on the mainland and
should do some needed advertising
work for Hawaii nei.
