THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1913.
Lodge, K. of P. Was Inau
gurated Quarter of
Just twenty-five years ago, Aloha
Lodge, Knights of Pythias, Wai
luku, was inaugurated. The Ad
vertiser reprinted, last Sunday, an
account of the ceremonies that took
place in 18SS. Some extracts are
given below and no doubt the inter
esting affair of the long ago, will be
read with interest by those who be
long to the well known lodge which
was the first ever established out
side of Honolulu.
"The steamer Likelike arrived at
Kahului at 8:00 a. wi. on Wednes
day. She had the Pythian Hag fly
ing at the main. A salute was fired
ashore as the stealncr dropped an
chor. A reception committee, head
ed by Mr. Harry E. Austin, P. C.
of Brooklyn Lodge, No. 118 of
Kansas City, Missouri, and accom
panied by Sir. Chauncey Wilder
and Dr. Grossman, met the deputa
tion. The whole expedition board
ed the train for Wailuku, where
conveyances were in readiness to
take the Knights and ladies to the
lodgings assigned to them some
being driven to Waikapu, some to
Waihee, and some to Wailuku.
This was about 9:30 a. m. on Wed
nesday. At G o'clock the meeting was
opened for initiation of candidates
and institution of the Lodge. Twelve
were made members, several other
intending ones being detained at
Lahaina on jury duty. The cere
monies kept the mystic company in
session all night until 5 o'clock
Thursday morning. Aloha Lodge,
No. 3 K. of P., of Wailuku, Maui,
thus had auspicious birth. While
the Knights were in session in the
evening, Dr. and Mrs. Herbert gave
a reception at their residence to the
visiting ladies, residents and casual
visitors. The Royal Hawaiian Band
played and sang on the grounds
until 10 o'clock.
On Thursday another session of
the Knights was held, when the
following pioneer officers of Aloha
Lodge were installed: W. A. Mc
Kay. P. C; A. Barnes, C. C; Dr.
G. Herbert, V. U; F. L. Stolz,
Prelate; Geo. C. Potter, K. of It.
and S. ; Geo. Ross, M. N. ; E. A.
Bielenbery, M. of E.: W. Earn
hardt, I. G., L. M. Vetlesen, 0. G.
A reception and ball in honor of
the inauguration of Aloha Lodge
was held on Thursday evening. It
was a grand event, lasting until
past midnight. The skating rink
where it came off was beautifully
decorated. Pythian Hags, colored
lanterns, etc, being part of the lix-ing-i.
The grand march started at
9 o'clock, led off by D. D. S. C
Justice David Dayton, with Miss
Hare, the reception committee
were; Dr. Geo. Herbert, Albert
Barnes, E. A. Bielenberg, P. L
Stolz, Win. A. McKay and E. Hoff
man. The floor master was Prof
Berger, band master, who carried
the programme through in truly
masterly style. The floor committee
were: Geo. C. Potter, Fred Arm
strong and Geo. Ross.
The Knights of Pythias and ladies
joined in the picnic to lao Valley on
Friday to the number of not less
than ouo hundred.
Returning from the beautiful
valley in the cool of the afternoon,
the party that evening took an ex
cursion by rail to Kahului. There
t , i . . . .
a Danu concert was given at tne
residence of Mr. G. P. Wilder. On
Saturday the train elaborately de
corated took them over to Snreckc s-
ville, where Dr. Morrison, manager
lor the Hawaiian Commercial and
Sugar Company, gave a reception
in their honor.
The excusionists were afterward
conveyed to the wharf, in good time
to take the steamer Likehko leav
ing about five o'clock. They were
landed in Honolulu at 6:30 on Sun
day morning, the- band playing as
the steamer entered the harbor.
All hands seemed to have enjoyed
the excursion as a whole with com
(Continued from page I)
to E. 0. Hall & Sons he went on
Saturday after bank hours, and ex
pressed a wish to pay a bill of seven
dollars and a half with a check for
double the amount taking the dif
ference in cash, if you please. A
half dozen or more friends were
called upon with satisfactory results
to Revell, and I am of the opinion
that he would not care to come
back and face them even if there
were to be no prosecution.
Revell was a different sort of thief
from Medeiros who is ignorant,
simple and so green that he seems
to be a typical come-on. He stole
but a few dollars and did it, I guess,
to satisfy the demands of a woman
who was much too smart for him.
But she was just that much too
smart for some other men here, not
a few of them high-brows who know
enough of the world, the flesh and
the devil to steer clear of the temp
tations in life or to resist them when
they come their way. Medeiros
seems to have borrowed more than
he stole, according to his admis
sions on the coast. For a woman
to get more than five thousand dol
lars from a poor devil with nine
children, beside a wife, to take care
of seems incredible, but it is just as
true in spite of the fact that she
says she didn't get the coin. There
has been a persistent rumor that he
could have fixed things here if his
wife would have joined him in
making a deed of the property to
his brother. I believe negotiations
toward that end were under way
when the man sloped, and about
the time ho got to San Francisco a
cable came here for the woman
signed "Sister." It is said an in
vestigation of the sister business
was started and abandoned before it
got cold for the reason that, like
the boy with the apple that had no
core, there wasn't no sister and it
was too late to adopt one and train
her up. The embezzlement case
seems to hang fire and probably
will until Charlie Rose gets back
with Medeiros which cannot bo un
til after January 1, because we will
not have a governor here to sign
After bringing down the malcdic
tions of the pineapple growers of
the territory on his head for cutting
prices, James D. Dole finds himself
a defendant, representing the 11a
waiian Pineapple Company, in a
suit brought by the federal govern
ment to dissolve the American Can
Company, as a corporation doing
business and restraining trade. Dole
says he knows of no way in which
his company can be made a party
to the suit. He should know better
than anyone and his reputation for
veracity here is the best. But there
is no telling where a case of this
kind is going to end, or what in
formation Attorney General Mc
Reynolds has under his hat. Dole
has been a wonderfully successful
manager and his business is growing
like weeds. I think his company
wrote off from the books something
like $250,000, as an item of experi
ence in the byproduct lino of cun
ning pineapples. Another $150,000
went off for something else and in
spite of that the company is paying
fifteen per cent a year to its stock
holders. The profits of the concern
for the past year would mount up
to something like $700,000 which
is about two thirds of the capital
stock. Can you Maui growers and
canners uo as inucnr uoio is a
wonder and no mistake
The Ad. Club that has done so
much boosting for Honolulu and
elsewhere, seems determined to have
itself noticed around Carnival times.
Just how Jimmy Doughterty feels
about having so much assistance I
do not know but, from what I know
of the man, I bolieve ho is of the
opinion that when ho starts to do a
thing he finishes it. He has made
a pretty fair start on the plans for
a floral parade, and it does not
seem natural that ho would take'
kindly to anything that would up
set them. For a time 1 thought he
had taken more of the pie than he
could get down at a single swallow.
Indeed the opinion still has a foot
hold with me, but how near anyone
could convince him that he is not
equal to the task I do not know. In
a way the whole affair seems this
year to have been taken out of the
hands of the Promotion Committee
and they will have littlo to do with
it whether it be a success or failure.
The fact that the program is to ex
tend over so lonf; a period is open
to the criticism it has received. Of
course the program may bo only
tentative; it may bo fingered over a
dozen times before the time comes
and then not be recognized as the
one first published.
An item in the newspaper this
morning would seem to indicate a
difference of opinion regarding the
powers of the civil service commis
sion. It comes from Deputy County
Attorney Weaver that the rules
governing the traffic here as laid
down by the commission are not
worth the paper they are written
on, and Traffic Officer Chilton is
advised to tear his book to pieces
and throw them to the four winds.
It may not be as bad as it sounds,
but when men in official position
disagree on such points it certainly
docs not bode good for the commu
nity. If I understand it right, the
autos and motorcycles majfc go any
old way, and if a pedestrian gets in
the way of one of them he is the
one to blame. 1 have noticed re
cently that some men who drive
machines for pay or pleasure seem
to think that the men who do not
enjoy the luxury, and who are con
tented with the street car service,
do not care a cuss what happens
even if it happens to them.
George Carter takes his pen in
hand today to criticize President
Wilson for his ignorance of Hawaii
an affairs. It seems that some
where in the president's message
Hawaii is spoken of as a possession
and that remark jars the nerves of
any kamaaina. These islands were
handed over to the U. S. and not
taken by force of arms. As a mat
ter of history they were carried over
bodily and laid in the lap of
the American Congress.
