as generally fairly well pleased with
what ho found hero, but intimated
that there is room forimprovement.
Mr. Kinney stated that he had been
fortunate in being able to meet and
talk with every teacher of every

ous one, and ho was about worn out
when he took tho Mauna Kea at
Lahaina last night aftur spending
the day among tho Lahaina district
The county bond issue campaign
has been rather quiet in this part of
the" county during the past week,
but its advocates aro apparently very
optimistic with tho outlook. Dr.
Raymond and W. J. Coelho went
over to liana and held a meeting on
Tuesday night in the liana church
which was very largely attended.
The addresses made were supple
mented by moving pictures, which
made a big hit. Dr Raymond states
that practically all of the voters of
that section of Maui were present,
and that Manager Chalmers, of the
Kaeleku plantation helped greatly
towards making the affair a success.
Tluyer Here Tonight
Secretary of tho Territory, Wade
Warren Thayer, is expected to ar
rive this morning for the purpose of
making addresses favoring tho bond
issue. A meeting will be held on
Market street, at which he will

will be charged. The students must

planning to attend are asked to pre
sent their names to tho department
for registration without delay.
An excellent crops of instructois

view of the school situation of t he
Territory. Ho expressed himself a
much pleased witli the personnel of
tho present board of commissioners,
and feels confident of being able to
work in completo harmony with its
members. "The board has shown
every disposition to give me a free
hand in the administration of
schools," said Kinney, "and I feel
that wo shall bo able to work
smoothly together. I do not proposo
to allow myself to be worried to
death with petty quarrels among
school teachers. If teachers cannct
get along together, they will bo giv
en a chance to get along apart,
for I shall make it a policy
to transfer quarreling teachers
just as far apart as possible
There won't bo any favoritism or
delay in the matter they will bo
moved just as far apart as tho limits
of tho island will admit and if they
don't like it they will know what
they can do."

Application has been made to the
National Boy Scout Council for a
charter for a Maui Council, which
will be made up of one member
from each town or district in which
a scout troop is organized. While
it will have no contr"oling influence
over the individual patrols, it is be
lieved that much good can bo ac
complished by keeping the local
organizations in touch with each
other. The following gentlemen
will represented the scout commit
tees in the districts where patrols
are now located: Capt. O.J. White
head, Wailuku; C. C. Campbell,
Puunene; Dr. Aiken, Kahului; and
Father Francis, Paia. Dr. McLaren
is to be Scout Commissioner for
Maui, and W. I Crockett was
named Secretary and treasurer.
A number of new patrols are to
be organizedatonce. Father Bruno,
has agreed to undertake thelaunch
ing of one at Lahaina, while liana
and Makawao are to have organi
zations very shortly.
Equipment has been ordered for
the Wailuku and Puunene patrols,
including uniforms. Tlfe boys will
have to buy these, since a scout is
required to earn everythinghegets.
A number of the boys have already
earned a part of the required
amount and others are seeking jobs
by which they may earn a little
money. A number of the business
men have offered to give scouts
employment for the purpose of
helping them help themselves.
A good deal of sport is anticipat
ed by the Wailuku patrol in the
near future, including a number of
camping trips. Mrs. John Weddick
has donate a tent, and Dan Carey
is making a two-wheeled cart for
the carrying of scout equipment.
II. B. Peuhallow has offered the
use of his Waihee cottage as a
camping place. Brother Frank has
supplied a telegraph instrument for
the teaching of the Morse code.
The boys have several drums and
fifes, but need an instructor.
The Paia patrol, which has been
organized tor nearly a year, and
has been fully equipped for some
time, is also very active thesedays.
They are looking forward with
much anticipation to the camping

For July 9.
Maui is to have another booster
dinner. This was decided upon de
finitely on Thursday, when a com
mittee was appointed to take charge
of the matter. This committee con
sists of II. B. Ponhallow, R. A.
Wadsworth, and E. R. Bovina,
Thursday, July 9, was determined
upon as the date of the dinner.
The committee is expected to
work out a program for thoocc'asion,
and it is expected that it will be
fully as great a success as was tho
one held in January. It is probable
that sonic of the live wires of tho
Honolulu Ad Club will bo present.
New Theater For Wailuku
Wailuku is soon to have another
theater, and within a few days it
is expected to have the building
under construction. The site for
the playhouse is about midway on
Market street. Plans recently com
pleted by Kuiory & Webb, archi
tects, of Honolulu havebeen finish
ed, and it is stated call for a build
ing which will cost some $6000.
The new enterprise is being pushed
by a company recently formed, of
which Joe Cohen, of Honolulu is a
leading spirit. Most of the stock,
however, is held by a considerable
number of local men.

expertness in tent raising, they re
cently won a prize offered by Ha
rold Rice, in the shape of full sup
plies for the patrol for two weeks
in camp. Mr. Rice made the offer
that if the boys could put up their
large tent in ten minutes, thisprize
should be theirs. If took the active
youngsters just about three minutes
to complete the allotted task.

organization, is being most heartily
seconded in his efforts by practical
ly all of people of Paia.
