THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1913.

dollars, when lie could have had
thousands, and taken no risk. Sat
urday afternoon there was a rumor,
mind you, only a rumor, that Mc
Duflio had gone with his attorney
to the shorifl's office, and opened his
private safe which had heen sealed
during his absence in the Orient,
and found therein an envelope duly
marked: 'Bail money $20 return
ed by clerk for Uric." 1 am not
sure of the correctness of the last
iwmc, but it is said to be the name
of the man who had complained
that ho had been robbed of that
amount. If that rumor is true,
then the only charge against Mc
Duflie has been knocked highor than
Jarrett seems to be keeping under
cover in so far as the investigation
is concerned, passing the buck up
to Deputy Attorney General Arthur
Smith who, is admittedly, a young
and conscientious officer in the de
partment of justice of this territory.
There arc people here who say that
Smith has fallen for a lemon, and
the truth will conic out as the probe
goes in. Also, it is said that the
men who have been active in the
business of snitching on their chief
are willing to crawl from under.
I understand the man who has
been closely connected with the
affairs leading up to the suspension
of McDuflie and Kellet, and who
has been considered always to be a
close friend of the chief, now denies
that ho was at any time after the
job of police inspector, or the one
held by MoDuffie. This news comes
at a good time, and indicates that
the young man is fully alive to his
capabilities, that the estimate was
placed by some enthusiastic well
wisher. Youth is all right, if it is
backed by the essentials that should
go with it, otherwise let an older
bird take the reins if tthe present
incumbent has to get out.
HIGH LIVING COST.'
This high cost of living has gone
beyond the writer of the occasional
funny paragraph; it is getting to bo
felt more and more every day and,
in spite of the fact that there is a
roar against the meat trust, meat
is one of the cheapest things we can
get for the table. High cost is in
the groceries, as well as in the meat
and "airtights," are double the
price we paid a few years ago. The
other day I felt a craving for old
fashioned Yankee hash and went
into a grocery here to get a tin of
corned beef for which I never paid
more than twelve and a half cents.
Imagine my surprise when I was
taxed a quarter for the same quan
tity, the same quality and made by
the same people that have put it up
for years. Where this is going to
to end, the Lord only knows. There
is no increase in the pay of em
ployees, as far as I can learn, but
a growing tendency to, clip off
salaries so as to reduce overhead
charges. Everything', nearly, that
you buy for the home, or for wear,
is advancing in price and the young
mon of yesterday are the old men of
today ripe in experience but with
lessor earning capacity, as a rule.
They must meet conditions with a
bold front for they fail to find the
old time economy in the can of
corned beef. As I have frequently
writton you, here in Honolulu, it is
the man or woman who depended
upon sugar who is now the greatest
sufferer by the depression. Lack
of dividends makes the whole town
a kin; the store that had the custom
ot tlio rich now has girls on its
hands, unless it happens to be one
that gathers in some of the military
shekels, and it is the sojers who
.keep tlio mare going. Inquiry
among the various dealers brings
out a subdued remark that business
is pretty good, nothing to complain
of, but a glance around the build
ings suggests many grounds for
complaint. Tlio one man who
seonis not to be affected by lack of
dividends, is tlio one who collects
the garbage in my district; he tolt;

Honolulu had the appearance
yesterday of a town on the edge of
tlio battlefield. Thousands of soldiers
pas ed through on horseback and
afoot and there were wagons aplenty.
Today another detachment came
along, and 1 believe there is to be
fighting out near Koko Head on
Tuosday or Wednesday.
If you arc a careful reader of the
island pres3 you havo noticed a
paragraph relating to tlio claim of a
woman on George W. Lockington,
not W. G. or W. G. Lockington as
the papers here persist in printing
it, of llilo, who years ago took a
poor little Hawaiiau girl to raise.
The child was not much for looks
and she had a temper that made
the town folks on the bay disgusted
with George for humoring her.
However, he took care of her and,
when she was old enough, brought
her down here and put into the
Priory. Every year as time passed
and the holidays came around
George came down for "baby'' and
took her back to llilo with him. He
was a genuine father to the girl and
could not have treated her with
greater consideration had she been
his own llesh and blood. Some
time ago he secured a divorce from
his wife, and still more recently,
married the widow of the late An
tono Fernandez, who was drowned
on the Puna coast. I'll admit she
did not wait too long after the first
husband demised. But it is a way
with some women, wnen they get
used to having someone around to
cut the kindlings and bring in the
wood, they got lonesome once he is
called away, George having switch
ed, according to law, felt tlio need
of some one to make his coffee, so
the affair was soon settled. Mr.
Lockington used to live here but ho
tired of the bustle of city life and
the noise of the old mule tramways,
so he moved up to llilo before it
commenced to grow. He was not
one of tho bloated rich when he
ic struck the beach but, by thrift
and economy, eating most of. his
meals at Akana's coffee shop the
while, he began to pile up funds.
In a few years ho had the biggest
furniture store and largest under"
taking establishment on the island
of Hawaii. A man could be funeral-
directed for nearly any price that
struck his fancy and feel satisfied
that George was not rubbing it in.
A few years ago he found himself
possessed with enough money to
retire and, not having invested in
in sugar, he could afford to lay back
under his vino and fig tree which
ho had, figuratively speaking, plant
ed on Reed's Island, and let the
world go hang. Everything he had
was to be the girl's when he passed
out, and the girl looked upon him
as her real father, and expected
that it would be so. Now the real
mother, who never put up a semo
leon towards her keep during the
past ten or twelve years, wants her
cheeild-or mebbe cash and the
chances are she will get neither
George is from Ontario and a mem-
ber of the original Orange Lodge of
of the province. He is a little too
old to think of it just now but, if
ho felt fit, 1 would expect to read of
his being in Belfast fighting against
home rule for Ireland.
