Fine Program of Sports Being
nareil. Dance in Evening
portant Society Event
tintc nn elaborate program is
being arranged by the Ptiuncne
Athletic- Club for the annual ecle
bration of the Puunoue Harvest
Home day, which will be held next
Saturday. The principal features
of the day will be an important
tennis match on the Puunenc hard
courts in the forenoon, the polo
match between the Maui and Oalut
teams in the afternoon, and the
dance at I'uunene Club house in the
evening. There will bo other sports
bowling, swimming, etc. but the
'program for these features has not
yet been completed.
Most general interest probably
centers in the polo match, which
will bo played on the new - field in
Kcabua, below the Puukolani dairy,
this being the first match to be
played on this court. The Oahu
team will consist of II. G. Hilling
bam, S. A. Baldwin, Harold Castle,
and Walter Macfarlanc. Maui's
team will probably consist of the
usual strong aggregation V. V
Baldwin, Collins, Dave Klomingand
Rico. While the Honolulu players
will doubtless put up a good game,
it is doubtful whether or not they
will be able to win, with Walter
Dillingham and It. W. Shingle
both out. Dillingham is on the
mainland, and Shingle had not ful
ly recovered from the fall be suT
fcred during a recent game with a
cavalry team at Moanalua. Both
teams, however, are practising con
siste'ntly, and the game will be a
good one to watch.
12th Precinct To
It is probable that before the pri.
inary election is held on September
12th, the present 12th precinct of
;ho county will bo subdivided, to
the great convenience of a large
number of voters. At present resi
dents living as far cast as Kakipi
gulch are obliged to travel tollama-
kuapoko, a distance of tn miles or
more, in order to cast their ballots;
while all the new voters in theKui
aha homestead section are from 5 to
G miles distant from the polling
The matter was taken up at a
meeting of the board of supervisors
this weel;, and a petition will be
circulated at once, asking that the
secretary m the territory make the
change. According to County Clerk
Kaae, who took the matter up while
in Honolulu last week, nothing is
known in the Territorial department
about a former petition on the same
subject, which, presumably has been
Tho new precinct will probably
extend from Maliko to Kakipi gulch
and from the new Hamakua ditch,
as the upper boundary, to tho sea;
with the polling place at Pauwcla.
Kauai Likely to Ask
For 1915 Convention
The program shaped out for the
Civic Convention on Maui October
3-5 looks all right, and much good
should come of the session. Kauai
should, and probably will, bo well
represented there and what is the
matter with Kauai getting tho next
convention? The Garden Isle is
noxt in line for it. Garden Island.

THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY,
It is reported that the voters of
Maui are to be again asked to vote
on an issue of county bonds for
substantially the same purposes as
proposed in the plebiscite election,
which was held on June 27, and
failed to cany. According to the
report, Governor Pinkliam is taking
an active interest in the matter,
and the proposition will be on the
general ticket in the October elect
As will be remembered, much
less than half of the registered vote
of the county was polled in the
plebiscite election, and although
the votes cast were by a large
majority in favor of the bonding
proposition, the measure failed. A
good many friends of the idea be
lieve that a mistake was made in
holding the special election, in
stead of waiting until the regular
election, and hope, by the larger
vote which will undoubtedly be
cast, to see it carry. .
