ence adjourned sine die, after one
of Hie most successful meetings in
tbe history of the association. The
Rev. II. K. Poepoe, of Kaumaka

ing hours of the conference, were

ly carried, thanking the churches
and people of Wailuku for their
hospitality in entertaining the dele
gates to the convention.
During the conference last week,
Delegate Kalanianaole and Senator
Charles A. Rice, on request of Aka
iko Akano, made brief addresses to
the members, which were well re
ceived. The banner trophy oL the Ha
waiian Evangelical Association for
the best island choir, is now on Mo
lokai. In the big inter-island con
test, which was held in the Maui
Theatre on Monday night, the Mo
lokai singers wrested the champion
ship from the Island of Hawaii,
which has held it for two successive
This singing competition was one
of the most interesting features of the
conference. Four Islandsw ere repre
sented in the contest Oahu. Ha
waii, Maui and Molokai and the
choice of the judges was not an easy
one. Those who have heard previ
ous contests of this kind declared
that the singing by all of the chor
uses was exceptionally fine.
Although Hawaii lost, she made
a gallant fight, but the decision of
the five judges, working indepen
dently gave Molokai first place with
Kauri second. The judges were: Rev.
C. G. Burnhain, Mrs. L. Chisholm4
Jones, Messrs. Moses Kauhimahu,
Joseph II. Kunewa, and Harry
The theater was crowded with
some 500 persons, and the interest
manifested was most intense. The
announcement of the judges was the
signal for a tremendous outburst of
enthusiasm. It is understood that
the conference netted between $500
and 8600 from the concert, which
will help to defray the expenses of
Last Sunday was the biggest day
of the conference, when it is esti
mated that more than 1000 persons
were in attendance. No hall was
largo enought to accommodate the
numbers, and the meetings were
consequently held in the open.
Dr. Ian McLaren, on Monday
morning delivered a very interest
ing and instructive address before
the delecates of the conference, on
the ''Care and Feeding of Infants."
The address was illustrated by
charts and was a plea for clean
milk and for general sanitation.
Bed Is Shot
Creeping stealthily, in the dead
of night into the room where his
victim slept, a would-be-assassin
emptied a revolver at close range at
a Porto Rican laborer, known in
Puuncne as Adolfo, and only by the
narrowest margin missed being suc
cessful in his purpose. The mur
derous assault took place last Sun
day night in the Spanish camp of
tbe Puuncne plantation. The police
believe they know the identity of
the man who committed the deed,
and expect to arrest him very short-
Adolfo received three bullet
wounds, and is now in the Puuncne
hospital. He will recover. With
him in the bed at the time of the
shooting, was a woman, who is be
lieved to have been the cause of the
attack. As the crime was commit
ted in the darkness it is possible
that some of tho bullets were in
tended for her also, though she es
One of tho balls struck 'Adolfo
just back of the right ear, passed
beneath the scalp and came out at
the back of his head. Another pas
sed through his left shoulder, and a
third grazed his abdomen leaving a
mark a foot long, like that of a hot
iron. After firing the shots, the
assailant jumped through a window,
carrying with him one of thosashes,
and made his escape, lie lot his
hat in his haste, however, and the
-police believe that this well be a
very convincing piece of evidence
when they land the man thoy are
It is claimed that the woman in
the case recently took up her habi
tation with the victim of the shoot
ing, cTeSerting another Porto Rican,
latelv discharged from the plantati
on, who it is believed, wa9 guilty of
making the attack, through revenge.
Lydgate Sees Many
Changes In 45 Years
One of the most interested visitors
to Maui during the conference, was
the Rev. J. M. Lydgate, pastor of
the Lihue Foreign Church, on Kau
ai. This was but tho second time
he has been on Maui in 45 years,
and the last time was about 25 years
ago, and was then for a very brief
visit. Forty-five years ago Mr.
Lydgate was connected with a sur
veying corps under the late Prof.
W. D. Alexander, and he gained a
pretty complete knowledge of Maui
in running government surveys.
But except for the eternal hills,
which remain the same, Mr. Lyd
gate says that he can find little that
is familiar. Forty five years ago
the great central plains of Maui
were barren wastes, and there was
scarce a habitation of any kind be
tween Wriluku and Makawao.
Mr. Lydgate preached last Sun
day morning in tho Paia church.
During his stay, he has been tho
guest at the homo of H. (i. Sloggett,
Tramp Ditch Trail
Chester 15. Cage, manager of the
Cvregg Company, Honolulu, accom
panied by his wife, spent a part of
his vacation by walking from Hai
ku to liana over the ditch trail, a
distance of something over -10 miles.
They came up on last Saturday's
Claudine, went from Kahului to
Haiku bv train, and from that
point continued on foot, arriving at
liana on Tuesday.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Gregg are used
to tramping, and stood the trip well,
arriving in liana in fine form. They
are most enthusiastic over their ex
perience, and with the scenery of
the Last Maui mountains, which
they declare is the finest in the
