What is Best for Maui
is Best for the Nevs
WAILUKU, MAUI, T. II., SATURDAY. MAY 30, 1914.
Stanley Livingston, president of
-?k? Haiku Farmers' Association,
returned Wednesday evening from
Honolulu where lie liad been in
vestigating the feasibility of fresh
pineapple shipments to the main
land, lie is convinced that this
project has great possibilities for
the Haiku farmers, and believes
that it will be given a thorough
tryout by the Maui growers during
the coining season.
"We can make a contract with a
very reliable firm on the Coast,"
said Mr. Livingston, "at $50 per ton
for the fruit f. o. b. wharf, Kahu
lui. The cost of packing and de
livery to the wharf, is figured by
Oahu shippers at from $23 to $2S
per ton. As quickly as possible, I
exnect to call a meeting of our
members and lay all the data I
have before them, and it seems
more than probable that we shall
be able to get together in a co
operative way to go into this
Mr. Livingston was much im
pressed with the efforts that are
being made by the Territorial and
federal authorities in Honolulu to
help the Haiku settlers in every
way possible. He states that there
is good prospect that the federal
experiment station will soon inau
gurate some practical demonstra
tion work in the homesteads look
ing towards a much wider diversi
fication of crops than are now produced.
By a score of 5 to 3, the Maui
polo team defeated the Oahu team
on the Sunnysidc grounds, in the
game played last Saturday after
noon. The game was an excellent
one, and the visitors put up a very
strong fight, despite the fact that
they were under the handicap of
mounts with which they were un
familiar. The fact that the Oahu
players made all their goals during
the last periods of the game, indi
cates that with their own ponies
the outcome might have been dif
ferent. It is possible that the Maui team
may go to Honolulu on June 19
for a return game, and that Oahu
will again play on Maui on July
The game last Saturday was wit
nessed by a large crowd from all
parts of Central Maui, and the
players were liberally applauded.
The lineup for the game follows:
Maui Harold Rice, No. 1; Ar
thur Baldwin, No. 2; Frank Bald-
win, ino. j; Arthur voinns, uacK.
Oahu Walter Macfarlaue, No.
I; S. A. Baldwin, No. 2; II. K. L.

MAKAWAO, May 2S. A sur
prising report comes from the Kula
section that a majority of Kula
Ilawaiians arc not in favor of bor-
owing the $5G,000 for the building
of tho proposed Olinda reservoir.
That a reservoir is much needed
especially for Kula people is undis
puted and thinking people arc
wondering as to reasons for this
reported Kula sentiment.
Tho recent raising of the Maui
tax-rato from 1.10 to 1.29 per cent,
(land values irrespective of planta
tion holdings remaining tho same)
may have had its effect but is riot
sufficient to explain the present
lack of enthusiasm among the Kula-ites.
NBW SUPPLY POIt MAKAWAO.
Apropos of water it is stated on
good authority that there is an
abundant and continuous supply of
it in the gulch nt Kailiili, 3,000
feet elevation, which could be easily
utilized to fill tho present reservoirs

G. Alexander premises, Makawao,
at 2,200' feet elovation. These cis
terns serve Makawao and Paia at
the present time but aro too low
down to supply Kula. Tho Kaili
ili gulcli is government property
and being narrow could at small
cxpenso bo made into an ample
reservoir. Tho rainfall at Kailiili,
up to the 23rd of this month, as
reported by W. llanncatad, tho
forester, in charge, has been a frac
tion over 33 inches.
Makawao farmers arc boasting of
a largo corn crop--but tho cool
rainy weather has retarded the
growth of water melons audi pota

in some localities by the konas of

Weather: Quite warm since the
Snit Is Started.
The Ptiuneiic school was closed
on Moudav of this week, on ac-
count of the illness of one of the
teachers, Miss Spiccr, being de
clared due to diphtheria. Several
other teachers, who occupied the
same cottage were quarantined.
Miss Spicer's condition was report
ed to be critical for several days,
but she is showing improvement
according to last reports. None of
the persons who have been exposed,
have shown any symptoms of the
disease, although another teacher,
Miss Kalino, who is apparently
perfectly well, showed as a "posi
tive" upon microscopical examination.
A Korean child in the camp ad
joining the Haiku cannery was re
moved to a detention camp last
week, together with several "con
tacts," and the case was later posi
tively pronounced diphtheria
There is no known connection be
tween the two cases, nor any indi
cation as to where the disease was
contracted by either patient.

It is the intention to form scout
councils of from 4 to 6 members,
comprising representative men in
every part of Maui where it may
be possible to form patrols. J. A.
Wilder, director of the scout move
ment in Hawaii, is expected on
Maui in the near future, to aid in
getting the work under way. As
soon as the various councils can be
established the work of organizing
the boys of the island into patrols
will be undertaken.
Tho Makawao-Wailuku district

The suit involves the ownership
of 753 acres of laud on Molokai,
and the facts in the case are very
nearly analogous to those in the
case won in the U. S. Supreme
Court several years ago by Mrs. At

Kapiolani Kstate has had possess
ion of the land, which it has leas

made a party in the suit.
