THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, DECEMBER- I, 1913.

from them . Why, what was the
parcel post started for? And the
report of the department is to the
effect that thirty m illiondollars was
the profit thereof up to date.
When I saw the Sierra go out the
last voyage and wished bon voyage
to my friend C. C. Kennedy, I won
dcrcd if it is true that all thit-g
como to those who wait, or if it is
truer that lie who hesitates is lost
1 do know how many years ago it
was that Mr. Kennedy put five
thousand dollars into the Consoli
dated fee Co., of San Francisco.
It was a liit of money to put in an
investment so far frae liaine but C.
C. risked it. Mr. Kennedy invest
ed liia money and I am told that
during the years intervening, which
include the earthquake season, he
has drawn a sum of money in
dividends which in the aggregate
amounts to more than a hundred
thousand dollars. And he has his
original stock still. His visit to
the coast at this time is in connec
tion with the selling out of the
company breaking the ice, so to
speak, in which case his slice of the
iiwlon should ho large. I have
known Mr. Kennedy for seventeen
years and lie looks younger today
than when I first met him riding
about llilo on ahorse. I lis inter
ests in the Waiakea Mill, which I
learn lie still holds, have been bring
ing him in a good dividend every
year. And then he has other in
vestments, but none I will wager as
good as the ice. The fact that he
has drawn gold from his investment
in that particular company prompts
me to ask "IJow would you like to
be the ice man?"
I enjoyed reading the account of
the commissioners hearing of the
Kellett case this morning, becauso
it put new thoughts into my head,
one of which was, how far they are
going to take the testimony of a
man who has made affidavits in two
separate statements and now repu
diates both, and says lie thought if
Kellett was putting up a job on
him, he would got even with him.
have an idea that Smith is about
a3 disgusted with Manuel Olsen,
who made these affidavits, and
denials, as Peters was with Bergati
of Maui. It seems to me there is
so much wiggling of the truth that
the whole thing will be thrown out,
and the time it has taken to hear
the case charged to profit and loss.
mrnt. T am told that under the
present contract system many of the
Japanese are earning seventy-five
dollars a month. Under a new order
of things this will have to bo re
duced to something like a dollar
and a quartor a day. An investiga
tion by certain Japanese developed
a condition that is highly satisfac
tory to tho management, for none
of tho men seemed to object to the
cut in the contract price for cutting
and loading cane. At Waiakca this
varies according to location of the

The wreck of the S. C. Allen on
the beach at Waikiki was the scone
and occasion for much excitement
Sunday morning shortly after mid
night. The wind had been blow
ing from the south at a good clip,
said to bo forly-fivc miles an hour,
and the waves, mountain high,
dashed over the hull. Suddenly the
wind increased in velocity to a gale,
running ninety miles an hour and,
in a short time, the vessel had been
blown shorcwards to within walking
distance of the beach and was thrown
over on her side. Two men wcro
on board and their cries for help
could be heard along the beach by
people living at Kaha'awai. To
undertake the rescue at that time
would have been foolhardy, but
there were two young men, the Cen
ter boys, who were willing to try.
Attempts were made to launch a
boat that was in the sand in front
of the Beekley's, hut it was not
feasible so they waited until Jour
thirty o'clock, 'when they put out.
In the meantime Ebon Low had
heard of the danger, or knew from
the velocity of the wing that there
must be trouble in store for the
watchmen, and he sent his son to
tne wharf from which place he went
to the wreck in a launch arriving
about the time the Center boys had
persuaded the Japanese to jump
from the side of the bark to which
they had been clinging for four
hours. The sea drove up on the
beach pieces of the wreck and rig
ging until the place was lined and
every yard in Kahalawai was filled
with driftwood Sunday night.

J. P. Cooko favors continuing the
fight for the duty on sugar, and in
an address before the planters yes
tqrday, he urged them to keep on
their armor and put aside money
for the time to come. Evidently
Mr. Cooke believes tl.e position of
the Senate is vulnerable, and that
money wisely spent will break
down the opposition of Underwood.
It is admitted that to some of the
plantations here, free sugar will bo
the death knell, but there seems to
be no use in Waiakea wasting ener
gy on the fight because it is evident
that the government is not going to
extend the lease, accept any propo
sition of the company, or do any
