WAILUKU, MAUI, T. H., SATURDAY, AUGUST 15, 1914.
AT FAREWELL GATHERINGS
Friends Assembled at Banquet Board Express Deep Feel
inn in Word and Act Maui Elks Hold Smoker and
Give Jurist Grip Mrs. Kingsbury Remembered.
Gathered about si beautifully ap
pointed banquet board, arranged in
the form of a great letter "K",somo
fifty of the more prominent citizens
of Maui, on Thursday evening, ex
pressed by word and act, something
of the high regard they hold for the
guest of honor, Honorable Selden
Bingham Kingsbury. The dinner
was in the nature of a farewell to
the Judge, who leaves Maui tomor
row evening, probably not to return.
No prettier dinner has ever
been given on Maui, than that on
Thursday evening. The large ban
quet hall of the Maui Hotel had
been elaborately decorated for the
occasion with palms and ferns, and
the tables arranged to form the in
itial letter of the Judgo's name,
were most attractively laid in white,
with a profusion of red carnation
and maidenhair fern decorations. The
guest of honor was seated at the
center of the main table, immediate
ly opposite the juncture of the two
arms of the K; and immediately
-opposite him a large circular center
piece bore in floral lettering the
word "God-Speed." It was men-,
tioncd in connection with the con
ception of the table idea, that the
letter K was intended to represent
the name Katydid, as well as that
of Kingsbury, this being Mrs.
.Kingsbury's first name.
Senator 11. B. Penhallow, who
had much to do with the arrange
ments of the dinner, sat at Judge
Kingsbury's left, and acted as toast
master. As the last courses of the
very excellent menu were being ser
ved, he called upon ,E. R. Bevins,
who in a short address paid high
tribute to the departing jurist, as a
citizen and as a judge. Others who
followed Mr, Bevins, were Judge
McKay, W, F. Crockett, C. C.
Campbell, and Rev. J. Charles Vil
liers, all of whom haveknown Judge
Kingsbury intimately and spoke
feelingly of the relationship which
has existed between them.
Judge Kingsbury responded to
the laudatory remarks about him,
with a brief talk which was pre
gnant with feeling, in which he
kanked his friends present, and the
people of Maui generally, for the
''honors shown him during his resi
k "-dunce here.
Following his address, Judge
'(Kingsbury was roundly cheered, as
as also Mrs. Kingsbury, who
though not present, was remember
ed by a number of the speakers
during the evening.
Throughout tho eveningthe Aloha
Quintet furnished excellent music,
and at the closo played and sang
Aloha (Jo, and led in tho general
song of Auld Lang Syne, which
brought the evening to a close.
Those present were Judgo S. B.

Elks Honor Judge at Smoker
At the smoker given at the Maui
Hotel on Tuesday evening, by his
brother Elks of Maui, Judge
Kingsbury was made the recipient
of a very handsome leather travel
ling bag, as well as the well-wishes
of all of the congenial party. The
smoker was one of the most
pleasant affairs that the Maui Elks
have ever given, albeit there was a
feeling of regret, expressed in a
number of short addresses, that the
guest of honor is so soon to leave
The first hour of the evening
was devoted to playing games
bridge, pedro, dominoes, etc.
when C. D. Lufkin, who acted as
master of ceremonies, in a short
talk expressed the regret of the
Elks at the leaving of Mr. Kings
bury and his wife, and proposed
toasts to each of them.
Judge Kingsbury spoke in in
formal manner, thanking the Elks
for their consideration, following
this with a glowing prediction as
to the future of Hawaii in general
and Maui in particular. He holds
that the natural attractions of these
Islands are destined to bring a
very large population here, of the
American class. In the 10 years
he has been here, the Judge stated
that he has seen a noted change in
the disposition of the people of the
territory towards new coiners, and
that there is no longer the same
feeling that there is not room for
HONOLULU SHOULD 1IBLP.
Honolulu makes more out of
Haleakala, the volcano, and other
attractions of the islands than any
other part of the Territory, de
clared the Judge, and the right
way to look at the improving and
maintaining of these things is for
Honolulu to help.
These remarks rather turned the
meeting into a Maui booster affair,
Mr. Lufkin and others touching
upon phases of the tourist business,
and ways to make the Haleakala
trip, in particular more pleasant to
Hugh Howell made a pleasing
little address, in which he present
ed the guest of honor with the
token of reminder, which the Elks
had prepared for him.
At 11 o'clock the usual Elks'
silent toast To Our Absent
Brothers" was drunk, followinj.

The polo game, which forms one
of the most important features of
today's Harvest Home sports, will
take place as usual on the old field

The sports program at Puunene
will begin at 8:30 o'clock with tho
tennis matches between the teams
from Honolulu and local players,
and with a bowling match, which
may possibly bo played simultane
ously. The Puunene Athletic Club, which
has charge of tho events of the day,
has arranged for serving lunch to
its guests at tho Puunene park, and
in this it will bo assisted by a num
ber of the lady friends of the mem
bers. A water carnival will be held in
the big Puunene tank at 7:30
o'clock, in which various swimming
and diving stunts will take place,
and possibly a number of impromp
tu swimming matches.
Following this, at 8:30 o'clock,
will come tho annual Harvest Home
dance in the Puunene Club House ;

society affairs of the year in Maui,
and tonight's event promises to bo

has "loaned" Dave Fleming to the
Oahu visitors for thogame this after
noon. Burns will fill in the vacancy
