THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, JULY 18, 1914.
Spoi ls night last Saturday, at the
,C5ym. was a big success, both as to
olmrneliT of tlie various events on
"tho urogram ami in the large atten
dance. The competitive drill by 1G
girls was one of the interesting
things, and was won by Miss Edith
Keola. The prize was a set of
Gymnasium letters, and the privi
lege of wearing them.
Chas. I'ogue won the mile
walking match from Alfred Yap, of
the All-Students baso ball team.
Time 0 minutes, 40 seconds.
The boxing bout between Arch
lal and John Wilmington, was de
clared a draw.
Chief interest centered in the
Gieco-Uoman wrestling match be
tween j. II. Hart, of McKinley
High school (weight 1S3 pounds)
and Herman Scholtz, (144 pounds)
This was really exeiting,and in view
of the diflerenco in weights, Scholtz,
although ho lost both falls, is herald
ed as a coming mat artist of more
than ordinary ability. More than
once he had Hart in danger, and
only the hitter's superior weight
saved him from a fall. At one tine
he held Hart for 7 minutes with a
back hammer-lock, but was unable
to turn the big fellow. Hart won
first fall in 4:f)G, and the second in
The star feature of tho evening
was the jin jitsu match between
Masa Mori and Masa Ichi YVakaya
ma. It was a very fast performance
and made a big hit. Yama won
,two out of three falls.
- John Wilmington won the high
jumy, 5 ft. 2 in.
William Inman, of tho All-Students,
easily won in the shot put.
On the lunge, he mado 43 ft. 2 in;
and standing, did !)9 ft. 9 in.
After the program a very pleasant
little dance was enjoyed for several

Friday night last week. Kico had
engaged the hall for himself, but
when Kuhio appeared on the scene,
he invited him to speak. Later

I'oth candidates got in a few good

iieof tlie main reasons for each of

was hugely attended and most en
thusiastic. He states that ho will
be back to Maui again in a week or
two and finish his 'lampaign here
which was cut short by the Terri
"iorial convention in Honolulu.
Kohala Police Rapped
We are informed that on the
fifteenth of this month a policeman
was charged with using profane
and obscene language. He forfeit
ed his bail of ten dollars, was re
.arrested under a bench warrant and
-fined $10, with costs S3. He is
still wearing his badge as a police
officer. We think this inexcusable
looseness in discipline on the part
of the sheriff, and it is up to him to
explain. We have an intimation
later that the man is to be fired at
t he end of month. Kohala Midget.

Tourists Ascend Haleakala
A party of 17, mostly made up
of school teachers from the coast,
arrived by the Manoa on Thurs
day, and went to the top of Hale
akala the same evening. They re
turned yesterday in time to take
the steamer for Honolulu last night.
The party is under the guidance of
Prof. Weber, who has been in the
Islands before, and who organized
the tour in connection with the
Matson Steamship company. They
have been to the volcano and other
places of interest in the Islands.
School Additions Authorized
The Board of Supervisors at its
meeting last week, approved plans
for a new teachers' cottage at the
Kcahua school, and also for a 4
room addition to tlie Puunene school.
Bids for this construction will be
opened on August 1st. Already
half a dozen sets of plans havo been
taken out, indicating that there will
be quite a contest over securing the
job. Tlie Board also ordered plans
perparcd for a new room for the
Xahiku school, and for a teachers'
cottage at Spreckelsvillc.
Again In Service
Rcnairs havo been comnleled on
the landing at McGregor's, and tho
Inter-Island boats have resumed
their former schedule, tlie Mauna
Loa being tho first one to slop last
Tuesday night. The former schedule
of mails from Wailuku has been re
sumed, which will bo anmccialed.
since it gives several hours more
time than when it was necessary to
send tho mail to Lahaina.
Will Help Voters Register
It is believed that there are :
good many persons on Maui, eli
gible to vote, who have not yet re
gistered, especially in the new
homestead districts. It is probable
that County Cleik Kaac will visit
some of these districts, if he can
be assured that there are enough
persons wishing to register to
make it worth while. Other wise it
will be necessary for them to come
to the clerk's office iuJWailuku.
Jury In Liquor Case
Declare Not Guilty
Filipino Gets Stiff Sentence On Ilea Of
Gtiily to Nasty Crime Verdict For
1'laintiff In Marlins vs Martins Case
The jury in the case of Ung
Foon Tuck, charged with selling
liquor without a license, which was
tried at Lahaina on Mondav and
Tuesday of this week, returned a
verdict of not guilty. The evidence
which the county attorney's de
partment was able to present, and
which was secured by the police
through an informer, who claimed
to have bought a bottle of samshu
from the accused, was apparently
not conclusive in the minds of the
jury. In this trial Judge Kings
bury took the rather novel ground
that the mere act of selling liquor
without a license was not sufficient
to constitute a violation of the
statute, and that it must be shown
that the seller was selling as a busi
ness or for profit.
The jury consisted of A. J.
McLeod, Thos. Hussey, C. A.
Beall, K. C. Mellor, E. K. Duvau
chelle, D. W. Driscoll, Joe Freitas,
A. L. Recard, E. H. Cockett, W.

Bail was ordered forfeited in the
case of C. Machado, charged with
assault and battery, on two counts,
who failed to appear for trial.

to Thursday night, when the court
adjourned till next week, was taken
up in trying the civil suit of J. C.
Martins vs' Mary Martins, assump
sit for $718. The jury awarded
judgment for $450. Notice of ap
peal was filed, by Case and Vin
cent, attorneys for the defendant.
E. R. Bevins represented the plain
tiff. The jury consisted of A. A.

Henniug's Auto Bill 0. K.
According to an opinion submitted
by the county attorney, on request
of tho Board of Supervisors. Super
visor Ilenning was within his rights
when ho submitted bills incurred by
him while acting as districtoverseer,
without pay, during the illness of
the regular overseer. The county
auditor had refused to approve war
rants for auto repair bills and other
items of expense incurred by Ilen
ning in this additional capacity.

No Keanae Highway

ecutive, Who Also Hands Us One
About Bond Issue Failure
In an address beforo the Hono
lulu Ad Club this week, Governor
Pinkhain outlined a program of re
trenchment, and expressed his dis
approval of Maui in various ways.
'I am going to cut down tho cost
o'f government 8800,000 during the
twelvo months ending June 30,
1915," ho said. "The territorial
treasurer has gone to Now York to
sell a $l,430,000issucof new bonds,
but I tell you right now that not all
of it is going to bo snent. Not all
of the items provided for in the ap
propriation bill are going to get past
The Governor then expressed his
ardent disapproval of spending loan
fund money for tho construction of
the Maui belt road from Keanae to
liana, says the Advertiser. The
construction of this magnificent
scenic highway was one of the items
recommonded by the civic conven
tion a year ago as an essential preli
minary to the further development
of the tourist promotion work on
that Island. Tho Governor said
that there is no utilitarian necessity
for building such a road and indi
cated that he is "from Missouri."
He expressed his disappointment at
the failure of tho Maui bond issue,
saying that under the law the coun
ties can borrow for internal improve
ments on a three per cent basis.
Postoffice For Pauwela
Pauwela is soon to have a post
office. Nelson Koloa has been ap
pointed postmaster, and has filed
his bond, and as soon as the various
styles of governmental red tape have
bpnn unwound tho now ofiieo will
start. At tho present time all the
people m the Haiku and Pealn dis
trict get their mail through tho Hai
ku post office, and the Pauwela office
will be considerably more conveni
ent to a large number.
Cost Big Money
The biggest event in Japanese
circles that has occurred in Maui for
a long time will be tho visit of the
champion Japanese wrestler, Tachi
yama, and some thirty or more
Japanese Athletes, who are expected
to arrive from Honolulu this morn
ing by a special steamer. They will
give three exhibitions in the Kalm
lui race park beginning this after
noon, before preceding to Hilo.
Some idea of the magnitude of the
proposition which the local Japanese
have tackled may bo gained, when
it is stated that they expect tho
total expense of tho meet to be
about 86500. $3500 of this amount
goes to tho visitors.
New Road on Lauai
The sum of 8450 was appropriat
ed by the Supervisors at their last
meeting for the building of a piece
of badly needed road on Lanai.
