VOLUME XX '
WAILUKU, MAUI, T. II., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1013.
AFT AND THEFT S
Suggestion Made That Civic Con
vention Delegates Reside Under
Canvas On Maui.
Maui is waking up to llic fact
that tho next civic convention will
bo held on this island, and already
people are wondering where the big
bunch of visitors can be housed
during their stay on Maui. That it
could be easily done through the
help of private individuals with
large homes, is well known, but
that is exactly what most people
wont to see avoided.
The idea of having the delegates
scattered all over East and West
Maui is not pleasing. There would
-always be trouble in getting the
delegates together at some central
place for the meetings of the con
vention. As the whole affair
hinges upon the work done at the
convention, it is felt by those inter
ested in the organization that all
the delegates must be kept together
as much as possible.
Several schemes have been moot
ed but the best would seem to be
that suggested by a well Renown
Wailuku man. lie declares in favor
of a tent city and has the following
to say about the scheme.
"We will have lo house the hun
dreds of delegates from Hawaii,
Oah(u and Kauai. That is settled,
and has to bo gone through with.
Now, we have no hotel bin enough
to handle the crowd as regards
rooms. Wo can take care of the
meals, excursions and convention.
The only thing that worries is the
sleeping accommodation for the
"Now, my idea is to establish a
tent city in Wailuku. We can bor
row military tents and cots. The
site of the tent city can be decided
upon and grass can at once bo
planted. 'Streets' and 'sidewalks'
can be laid out right away, and
hedges of quick growing shrub3 can
be planted. The whole place can
be made ready for the erection of
the tents and the rest will be easy.
"The tent city idea is a novel one
and would appeal to .the visitors.
The whole 'city' would bo lit by

- That there will be a "cut" all
.around in the wages and salaries of
v - ,
many county employees, is the
sad news announced bm the board
of supervisors. A ten per cent re-J
duction in wages is suggested and,
at the regular meeting of the board
next Wednesday, the 'matter will
be taken up.
It is planned to have the heads
of the various departments confer
with the members of the board,
and to try and get together on the
question of reducing salaries or
discharging employees. The sug
gestion has been made that the
better course would to be to fue
any employee who can be' spared.
' Tliat would, it is thought, be better
Whan to cut salaries of everybody.
That something has to be done
is certain. The revenue of next
year will be less than ever, accord
ing to those who know, aiid the
sooner a .reduction is made the
better it will be for everyone con
cerned. The whoje matter will be
threshed out next week, and there
is sure to be a lively row over the
proposed reductions in salaries.

Tomorrow afternoon at three
o'clock the Kahului and Star base
ball teams will meet to play the
first game of the special series
needed to decide which club shall
take the championship honors.
The Kahuluis won the champion
ship of the first series, and the
Stars- that of the second series. It
now remains to see which club is
the All-Maui champion outfit.
That the game will be a cood,
close one, is the prediction of most
of the followers of the sport. While
Kahului may be handicapped
through injury to players, the
Stars are about in the same fix.
That the fans will be present in
hundreds, there is no doubt, and
that the rooting will be some
thing to remember, is the tip that is
Play will begin at three o'clock
sharp, and it is up to the players
to make the game snappy and full

more innings. May the better

attended the Hamakuapoko High
School last Monday. The children
are coining from all over the dis

to traveling to and fro 011 the train.
The school principal, Mr. Bee
nian, is doing great work, and hia
ideas of education areTinding much
favor with the parents of the chil
dren. The new school will be a
real high school, and graduates
from the institution will be able
to go straight to the colleges of the
mainland, without having to at
tend any preparatory schools after
Children from Wailuku, Kahului,
Ptuinene, Spreckelsville and Paia

Young Carter Sent Up for Twelve Months Hilo Police
Court Clerk in Trouble Hui fJalu Swimmers
HONOLULU, Oct. C Poor old
Enoch Brown, Sheriff's clerk in
Hilo, .scorns to have prepared him
self to join the merry throng on the
hill. Sometime ago Enoch liked
his cup pretty well and the late
Sheriff Andrews dispensed with his
services for a time. Later on ho
got back into service and has been
clerk in the station house for some
time. That graft should hit him
just when everyone in official posi
tion in tho district was being in
vestigated, shows a weakness of
character that is surprising. Years
ago graft was rampant in that same
district, but it happened to strike
the license collectors only. Every
man who happened to wear a star
look it upon himself to wait on the
Chinese Merchants, and perhaps
some of the others and snooked
into the matter of licenses for the
year. Where one was found who
had not paid, tho amount was col
lected and a receipt, often a personal
one, given, Hie time came when
Sheriff Andrews thought he would
send around and find out how tho
licenses stood, and the investigation
showed that tho captain of police
had picked a few dollars and had for
gotten to turn them over. Thegran'd
jury got hold of it and tho captain
It was voted at the special meet
ing of the board of supervisors that
a sum of 8050 bo "loaned" to the
Maui Loan Fund Commission,
which is about ready to shut up
shop as far as having any money is
concerned. If tho Commissioners
paid the sum of SGO, there would
only remain S350 in tho bank. -As
at least SI, 000 is thought to be
needed for other work and inspec
tions, it was decided to ask the
county to help out. This was done,
providing that the new loan does
not become available before Decem
ber. Should the loan money be
come available the county will not
advance the coin.
In talking of the. financial state
of the county Supervisor Henning
declared that expenses would have
to be cut down and that $10,000
per month should bo sufficient to

year will be much smaller," said
Henning, 'and wo must get to

On October 15 the Inter-Island
bowling tournament will begin,
and there will be four teams taking
part in the exciting series. Kauai
will have one team, Maui one and
Oahu two. These four teams will
provide some great sport before the
end of the series comes, and the
results of the various contests will
be watched with interest.
Each team will have five men

was indicted on two counts. When
brought, to trial he plead guilty and
was fined twenty dollars, .the
amount of tho defalcation. At that
timo the foreman of the grand jury
remarked that ho had evidence in
his pocket of the guilt of another
man, but he did not think it worth
while to present the matte to the
jury as he had learned that tho
money had been paid into tho trea
sury after a warning had been given.
There seemed to be a little feeling
in the matter and the case was
dropped. Unless memory fails, tho
captain, who was stung for twenty,
has never been restored to citizen
ship. I mention this because it
shows that graft is not a new thing
in Hilo and that the .present short
ages might have .been found as easy
as those of a dozen years ago.
Young Carter of Hilo who touch
ed the strong box at tho British
Consulate now languishes in 'jail
doing a twelve month stretch for
allowing himself to get too intimate
with a soldier who was in need of
money. Carter backfired when he
was arrested and denied the charge;
later giving a story that incriminat
ed two soldiers. When they were
arrested one confessed, admitted he

will be taking part in the big con
test. The games' will be bowled
on each of the respective team's
alleys, and the scores made' will be
at once certified to and mailed to
each contesting club's secretary.
In this way the tournament keeps
going without the enormous ex
pense and trouble of having the
teams travel long distances in order
to light it out for the honors.
The Puuueuc boys are getting
into form and, when the contest
opefis on October 'l5, the Maui
men will be ready and able to put
up a score that will, it is hoped,
give thejn the lead in the tourna
ment right from the jump. That
the Putinene bowlers hold the lead
right through the contest, is the
hope of all the Maui sportsmen.
Pheasants are being released on
Maui and Molokai again, and last
week fifty-one birds were set at
liberty. Tho birds are of the Jap
anese variety and thoy are consider
ed to be very hardy. Fifty more
pheasants are still to como from
Japan to complete tho order origin
ally sent to tho agents in Yoko
hama. It has boon suggested that the
close scason for pheasants should bo
extended for three entire yonrs, in
order to givo tho birds an opportun
ity to become proporly established
in these islands.
Quail will, probably, bo also so
cured from Moxico and,thousands
of the littlo fuathorod onos will be
released on Maui. The Mexican
variety is said to be a romarkably
strong 0110, and there is no doubt
that tho birds will soon multiply
and, oventually, add much to the
hunting opportunities on Maui.
Our County Pathcrs declare that
the story that appeared in the
Honolulu press regarding their
voting themselves twenty-five dol
lars each for "spending money"
while amending the Civic Conven
tion in Honolulu, is not correct.
It stands on the minutes that it
was moved, seconded and properly
carried, "that each delegate from
the county be allowed $25 for
expenses." His now decla'fcd that
what was meant was that expenses
up to the amount of $25 would be
paid by the county upon the pro
duction of receipts showing that
the debt had been incurred. So
far no.claim has been put in, and
it remains to be seen if any will be
sent in at the regular meeting of
the board on Wednesday next.
The whole matter has stirred un
things and there has been little else
talked of around town for the past
At the police couit during the
week there has been a case going
on that has attracted every Japanese
from Waikapu who could possibly
get away from work. It is an
auto collision affair, and party feel
ing seems to run very high.
Tsatuma is sueing T. Omori for
colliding with his car on the Wai
kapu road. Tsatuma claims that
Omori came up behind him and,
striking the wheel of his car, forced
him into the ditch where his car
sustained much damage.
Omori's story is that he never
touched the other car and that
Tsatuma was on the wrong side of
the road and that he also would
not move over and give him room
The Japanese of Waikapu are all
worked up over the affair, aud
there seems to be much bitter feel
ing. The case was continued from
Wednesday till yesterday when
Judge McKay decided in favor of
No less than 290 pupils were en
rolled 011 tho opening day of this
term, at the Wailuku Public School.
Nino grades exist and there arc
eight teachers. Miss Lida Crickard
is tho principal of the school.
The enrollment, at tho beginning
of the year, is tho largest in tho
history of tho school, and is cer
tainly very gratifying when we ro
membor that somo of tho pupils of
this school, particularly those of tho
higher grades, havo entered tho new

Dr. Blue in Yellow Fever Cam

Dr. McCoy, who for tho past year
or so, has been located on Molokai
n charge of tho Federal leper hos
pital was in Wailuku the other day.
Tho well known Federal medical
man is going to Honolulu for a few
days. He lias to pay visits to the
metropolis every couple of month's
in order to look over the Kalihi re
ceiving station, which is directly
under his charge.
Dr. McCoy was tho man who suc
ceeded Dr. Blue when the latter
was called by President Taft to ac
cept the most important post from
a medical point of view in the
United States. Dr. Blue is now
surgeon general and is head of the
wonderful organization which Uncle
Sam has built up within the past
decade or so.
Over 011 Molokai, where Dr.
McCoy was transferred to after the
yellow fever scare had died out in
Honolulu, there is the huge, well
appointed hospital in which science
is doing all that is possible to dis
cover a cure for the oldest disease
in tho world. Dr. McCoy spends
all his time working for the same
object tho discovery of some means
of curing leprosy. Constant study
is needed, and tho good doctor is
always working at tho seemingly
endless task. .
The other day twenty-two per
sons who had reason to think that
they were "clean" were examined
thoroughly. Out of the twenty-two,
four were found to bo free from the
dread scourge. Whether these four
have been cured, tho disease dying
out for some reason or another, or
whether the men were never really
lepers, is a moot question. In tho
old dajs, before proper investigation

Company 1, N. G. II., under the
command of Captain Bal, marched
out to Waihec last Saturday after
noon and camped there for tho
night and all of Sunday. Forty
men turned out and tho drilling
they got showed tliat they are all
fit and well instructed in their work.

attention as it paraded tho streets,
and many favorable comments on

of their work.
