WAILUKU, MAUI, T. II., SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 1914.
There was a hold-up at the Ki
awe Camp, near Lahaina, last Sat
urday night when two Filipinos
attacked a Japanese and robbed
him after doing the thug act. The
affair was an exciting one for all
concerned in it, and the unfortun
ate Japanese had a warm time
while the hold-up men were doing
The hold-up was very unex
pected, and the victim had not the
slightest idea that he was in any
danger from thugs till the men
were actually on top of him. The
Japanese says that he was proceed
ing homeward at about ten o'clock
at night when he saw the two fig
ures on the road, ahead of him.
He did not feel alarmed and con
tinued walking. Suddenly, when
he was just abreast of the two men,
they jumped on him and throttled
him. When the Japanese was help
less, the men went through his
pockets and then ran away.
The matter was reported to Dep
uty Sheriff Lindsey and he got busy
on the job. Smart work resulted
in the arrest of the two Filipinos,
and they were charged in the Dis
trict court last Tuesday.
Thero will bo a celebration at the
Kamchameha III school, Lahaina,

one tree is now yielding ripe alli

The peaches are ripening and the
method in which they are protect
ed from the ravages of the fruit-fly
should become generally kn6vn.
Each peach is enveloped in a small
paper candy sack. The bag covers
the whole peach and the stem as
well. In this manner Mr. Case
has been able to defy the efforts of
the fruit-fly pest. The fruit ripens
just as well as if it were not cov

Figs are another hobby of Mr.
Case and he has some fine speci

different fruit trees are bearing

fruit as long as the grower devotes
time and attention to the hobby.

PLEBISCITE TO SOLON!
By a motion made by Dr. J. H.
Raymond and duly seconded by H.
A. Baldwin and, finally carried, the
committee appointed at the public

that live County Supervisors of Maui

to decide whether or not the County

ry out the scheme of the Olinda re
servoir and other improvements for
Maui. The resolution read as fol
"That after a thorough investiga
tion into conditions, this Committee
ccommonds to the Board of Super
visors tnat it issue a proclamation
calling tor a plebiscite and take
such other necessary steps as may
bo provided for by law for an isue
of County Bonds for the purpose of
constructing a Reservoir at or near
Olinda, for tho Makawao Water
Works and for such other permanent
public improvements as tho said
Board of Supervisors may deem
wise and proper."
Tho committee that recommend
ed tho plebiscite was made up of tho
following gentlemen: Messrs. Ayers,
H. A. Baldwin, A. Bruno, A. W.
Collins, Hugh Howell, J. K. Kahoo-
kele, C. D. Lufkin and J. II. Ray
The meeting of Wednesday was

Mauager.Stender's bunch of ball
players went down to defeat at the
hands of the Waikapu team by a
score of 16 to 14 in a game of base
ball played last Sunday morning.
In the first two innings, the
Waikapus could not make the cir
cuit of the diamond while two
players of the Valley Isle dented
the rubber. It looked as though
the Valley Isle yould hold the Wai
kapus down, but Catcher J. Xaviel
of the Valley Isle was letting all
the balls pass him and the Wai
kapu boys came galloping home
like Cormvell cows, netting 5 runs
on the catcher's errors. The Val
ley Isle managed to score 2 runs
in the third inning. In the fourth
and fifth innings, the Waikapus
scored one run only, and the Val
ley Isle nine was credited with two
runs. In the sixth inning, Pitcher
L. Marlins of the Valley Isle was
an easy mark for the Waikapus,
who were hitting him all over the
field, scoring 4 runs; he was re
lieved by J. Silva. The Waikapus
scored 4 runs in the seventh and 2
more in the ninth. The Valley
Isle made some good bingles in the
eighth and scored 5 runs. In the
last half of the ninth, the Valley
Isle could have scored more than 3
runs, but Manuel Muniz died
miserably at the home plate and
the game ended with a score of 16
to 14 in favor of the Waikapu team
under the leadership of Capt. K.
PAIAS va GYMNASIUM.
In the afternoon game, Manager
Medeiros' aggregation of stalwart
ball tossers put it all over the
Gymnasium bovs, under Manager
Burlcin, by a score of 24 to 12.
Pitcher Hansen of the Gym, was
pitching a good game but he had
very poor support in the infield as
well as the outfield. The Paia
boys were slugging his delivery all
over the field, and most of the runs
were made on errors.
Fred Nunes of the Paias twirled
a nice game for his team and his
offering was a puzzle to the Gym
boys. Manager Burlem's bunch
of boys looked stunning in their
new uniforms of blue and red when
they were out on the diamond, but
they were poor in hitting and field
ing, and also showed lack of team
tomorrow there will be two
grand games such ashave never
been seen before. TheC. A. C. will
play the Kahuluis in the first game
at 1:30 p. in., and the Asahis will
meet the Young Cubs at 3:30 p. in
It is rumored that the Kahuluis
have some new players and this
will strengthen the team. One of
the recruits is a new arrival on
Maui, who, it is said, knows the
art of pitching. The railroad boys
arc hard at practice every day, and
they are determined to come up to
Wailuku and wipe the earth with
the C. A. C. boys. On the morn
ing train, Capt. Ed. Aiona of the
Kahuluis, assisted by two senior
players, will bring a barrel of
whitewash and it is their intention
to carry it aloft to the Wailuku
field and there have it spilled all
Since it is nunored that the
Kahului boys are coining full o
hope and confidence to win, Capt
Aki Tom of the C. A. C. has been
busy making preparation for this
great game. His peerless aggre

That the Kula Sanitarium is in
dire need of assistance as regards a
decent supply of water, is tho opin
ion of everyone who knows any
thing about the present horriblo
state of affairs at that institution.
Senator Baldwin who, on Weducs-
lay last, pioposed that an item of
at least $5,000 for the Kula Sam
arium be put on tho improvement
ist suggested bj the plebiscite com
mittee, voiced the sentiments of tho
majority of the people of Maui.
It is felt that tho sanitarium must
bo taken care of, and a proper water-
supply bo assured. The devoted
physician of that institution is wor-
ied to death about his patients, and
f it had not been for the fact that
water was carted a long distance to
tho hospital during the last month,
tho patients would have to be re
moved. Tho Kula Sanitarium is one place
that should get first consideration

the loan be obtained.

whitewash tub. D. Chong, the
twirler for the C. A. C, who has
recently made a study of hypnotism
and who is overwhelmed by classic
learning in the art of twirling dis
played by this pitcher, will cer
tainly hypnotize the swat artists
from Kahului and they will sink
sadly to the plate in the order of
one, two and three, and then, that
fatal fluid of barnwall use will
trickle slowly over those railroad
The second game will be a hard
fought battle between the Asahis
and the Young Cubs, for both
of these teams were winners in the
opening games of the series about
two Sundays ago.
The Asahis are a crack team, of
course, tncy are, otherwise, tne
Young Cubs would not butt up
against them. The Asahi team is
said to have pitchers who never
walked a man, first baseman who
never made an error, and outfield
ers who never missed a fly.
The Young Cubs team is com
posed of Junior players and they
ire all considered good stickers.
With Tom Cuuuniugs in the box
and Dan Kaiinina at the receiving
end, they will give the Japs a hard
rubbing. Oh! what a licking those
Japs will get?
