an inspiring spectacle and attracted
a large crowd- Tlie hig hit of the
procession was the caged attraction
consisting of (he two local hanking
magnates, P. C Lindsay and C. D.
I.iukin. In most fanciful hula cos
tume, and laheld "Tightwad and
Shylock,'' and with various other
laliels such as "We shave county
warrants so you couldn't recognize
them," they easily were the stars of
the show. "P.ahy" Sloggctt and
"Nurse'' Dcinert, also attracted
much attention with their perainhu
lator. "n.'c'' McConkcy and his
appropriately lahled hutcher wagon,
was another leading feature. 'Hilly'
Field, astride a diminutive hurro,
was made to advertise his hotel
hiisiniss in a most conspicuous
manner, and the placards announc
ing his rates would have made the
most hardened tourist sit up and
take notice. K. 11. Hevins, in a
general's uniform, and mounted on
a white charger, looked decidedly
uncomfortahle, and V. C. Campbell,
in prison stripes, and the announce
ment that evil coinpaionship hail
been bis downfall, might also have
looked happier. II. II. Streubeck,
as a liiitish character, bearing a lot
of uncomplimentary placards con
cerning the fatherland and the
Kaiser, came in for a full share of
the attention along the line of march.
IMIOUTA!NT SECRETS DISCLOSED
An outsider, who claims to have
smuggled himself into the Armory
with the aid of an Arab Patrol uni
form, tells a terrifying tale of the
initiatory ci remould. Among things
he observed the following: Candi
dates were caused to receive the
impact of a huge butting IJilly goat
while on their bands and knees
blind folded; their flesh was tortu
cd with red hot pinchers; they were
made to walk in shoes full of sharp
pointed tacks. A number of memb
ers of the order protested at this
Maui Prisoners Paroled
Four Maui prisoners in the Terri
torial penitentiary, were paroled
last week by Governor I'inkhani,
and are now out pending good be
havior. They are Nareisso IJossJ
sentenced to IS months to two years
for first degree burglary.
Juan I'armilo, sentenced to IS
months to two years for assault and
battery with a weapon.
Ah Hong, sentenced to two to
three years for first degree burglary.
I'ong Chang, sentenced to five to
ten years for second degree burglary,
cruelty, but upon a votebeing taken,
the number of tacks was increased.
Candidates were placed in a large
barrel along with seven loose bricks,
ami the barrel then rolled down a
long flight of steps. Upon the dis
covery that the novices were un
usually tough, only one appearing
slightly injifcd, it was decided by
a large majority hereafter to increase
the number of bricks to the magic
number 1I. Among other Hunts,
dancing was required of the novices,
the rhtbni being maintained by a
select number of more refined
members of the Patrol shooting with
revolvers at the novices' feet. The
holes can yet be seen in the Armory
floor. At this juncture, the identity
of our informant was discovered.
He was promptly stripped of bis
uniform and summarily ejected. He
has since found it wise to take the
first steamer to the Coast.
Following the ceremonial session,
the usual banquet was held Satur
day evening in the Maui Hotel, and
is declared to have been one of the
most elaborate and enjoyable affairs
that ever took place in Maui.
Sunday was an off day, with no
fixed program, and the visitors scat
tered pretty well over central Maui
before re-assembling for the depart
ure of their steamer at 10 o'clock.
An exceedingly large crowd assem
bled at the wharf to see them off,
and there was much to entertain it
right up to the time of sailing. One
of the diversions of the frolicsome
bunch was to turn C. 1). Lufkin ad
rift as they left, with a neat set of
hand-cuffs on his wrists, and the
key enroute to Honolulu.
