Knlmlui Railroad Assists By Putting
on Passenger Coach In
On Monday morning next, the
new High nntl Grammar School at
Hamakunpoko will be opened, and
it is expected that about sixty
children will be in attendance.
The building is completed and the
structure is well adapted for the
The new school will, as the rural
press would put it, "fill a long felt
want." There has been, formally
years, a demand for just such an
institution and a large number of
parents are delighted that the
school is now an accomplished fact.
In the past, it has become imper
ative for parents to either send their
young children, of twelve years or
so, away to Honolulu to school, or
to allow them to wind up their
education at the grammar school
stage. There have, of course,
been instances where governesses
have been employed but, on the
whole, the higher grades of schools
have been desired.
In order to enable children from
Wailuku, Kahului, Puunene and
Paia, to attend the new school, the
Kahului Railroad Company has
decided to attach a passenger car
to the local freight that leaves
Wailuku at 8:50 every morning.
This innovation will be much ap
preciated by the parents, and will
enable the children to reach school
at about 9:30 every morning. There
are a number of scholars ready to
take the first trip on Monday morn
ing. There will be four teachers in
the new school three paid by the
department of public instruction
and one by the parents of school
children. For the time being,
some of the teachers will live in
the school building but, later on,
cottages will be erected for them
The establishing of the schoo
will mean that several children
who were scheduled to leave for
the mainland in the near future,
will remain on Maui and receive
their high school education here.
When the supervisors met on
Thursday last to continue their
labors it was stated to them that a
rather serious state of affairs ex
ists regarding the care of tubercu
losis patients. It was declared by
Supervisors llenning and Drum
inond that a certain patient at the
Malulani Hospital, was refused ad
mittance at the Kula Sanitarium,
although that institution was not
full of patients suffering from tuber
culosis. The statement created rather a
sensation, and Supervisors Homing
and Drummond spoke out in a very
earnest manner about the affair.
The statement was made that both
hospitals arc run by the county,
and that the physician in charge of
the Malulani hospital has a perfect
right to transfer a patient from the
Wailuku hospice to the Kula one.
After some discussion, it was put
up to the financial committee to
look into the matter, and to con
sider some plan whereby a couple
of cottages might bo erected near
the Kula Sanitavium to accommo
date pationts who badly need treat
ment and care. Supervisor Drum
mond stated that many people who
are only suffering from "breakbono
fever,'' or who need a, nice rest
among beautiful flowers and scenerv.
are occupying beds at the Kula in
stitution. Drummond announced
his intention of visiting the hospital
and sizing up the proposition.
Hugh Howell is making good
headway with the new Kihci boat
landing, and he lias installed a
well-boring apparatus that is over
coming the difficulty as regards the
hard rock that was encountered on
An expert rock and pile driving
man has bon secured, and the
work is now being rushed to n con
elusion. Shifts are working both
day and night, and the new landing
should be ready for boats within a
few week from now.
All Maui is looking forward to
the completion of the landing, as
then the long journey from Laliaina
will be obviated. The risk, some
times, at McGregor's, is too great
for lady passengers to take and the
Kihci proposition will be most con
venient. Contractor Wilson will have to
ship rock and sand from Oahu for
his road job at Nahiku-Keanac.
There is a scarcity of the kind of
material necessary for the work,
and the contractor has decided to
charter a small schooner and carry
the stuff he requires in the vessel.
The road work is going along
well and a gang of one hundred men
is kept busy on the job. The
stretch of road should be completed
before very long, and it will be of
great importance to the residents of
the Nahiku and Keanac districts.
About two hundred tons of rock
is needed for one piece of the road
and it is impossible except at great
expense to obtain the material
any where near the site of opera
Yesterday afternoon, at about 4
o'clock, a Japanese happened to go
near the school houseat Kahului, and
ho at once noticed a bad odor. Be
coming suspicious, the man inform
ed a police officer who at once pro
ceeded to the house. At the rear
was a body hanging from a rope
that was made fast to a kiawe tree.
The police officer telephoned the
Sheriff and ho at once proceeded to
thesceneof the tragedy. Thatthecase
was one of suicide there is no doubt.
The body had not been identified

Duke Kahanamoku's records arc
almost smiled at in Australia, and
some of tho fast swimmers there
say that Duke's time is impossible.
W. L. West, of Wailuku, who met
a number of the sporting crowd in
Sydney, of course, stuck up for the
Hawaiian's records. Some of tho
swimmers "down under" declared
that they would like to havo an
Australian timer keop tab on the
native. West astounded them all
by replying that one of the official
watch holdors is an Australian and
a man who has had considerable
experience with the stop watch,
both in theso islands and in Aus
tralia. This statement seemod to stagger
the doubters, and they began to
think that perhaps Duke's figures
for the various distances wore cor
rect. Longworth, tho wonderful
swimmer over all distances, would
like to havo a go at Duko. There
arc others, too, who think that they
could make tho Hawaiian wonder
stretch himself. ''Alright," said
u West to a sporty bunch in Sydney,
wait till Duke comes and wins
everything from twenty-five yards up
to the three-quarter mile. Then you
will admit that tho Hawaiian is a
wonder, and that tho timers, official
course measurers and starters of
Hawaii know tho game."
