ROADS VITAL IF KUIAHA
SETTLERS ARE TO SUCCEED
Annual Meeting of Homesteaders Finds Spirit Strong
In Face of Heavy Odds.- New Officers
After postponement for several
weoks on account of the virtually lm
passable condition of the roads In the
district, the Haiku Farmers' Asso
ciation held its nnnunl meeting fin
ally on last Sunday morning, in the
Kulalia school house. Tho following
olllcois were elected: W. I. Wells,
president; Mrs. F. G. Krauss, vice
president: Miss Florence Wood, secretary-treasurer;
E. C. Melior and
George H. Farnsworth; directors. The
now constitution and by-laws, which
had been under consideration for
some time, were adopted.
Arc Not Discouraged.
Despite Jho fact that tho past year
has l.een one of discouragement in
many ways to the homesteaders, the
retiring president, Stanley Livingston,
in his report, found tha.t the com
munity has made real progress, and
that the association has accomplished
miK'h that was worth while. With
pineapples bringing much less than
the cost of growing tlieni, and with
ro:uln in such condition at harvest
time that the cost of hauling to the
canneries was increased from 100 to
500 per cent., tiie settlors in most
instances find themselves in worse
position financially than at any time
since tract was opened. There is still
a general spirit of optimism in the
community, however, and the belief
that if they can but hold on they will
ultimately make good.
Lack of Roads Chief Handicap.
With reasonably dry weather and
light hauling during tho first two
yearn after the tract wns opened Jo
settlers, there was not much trouble
on account of roads, but with almost
Incessant rains for the past eight
months, it is now recognized that the
road problem is tho vital one. All
the efforts of the community arc to
be centered on getting help in tills
matter. An appeal for at least -75,000
direct appropriation from tho legisla
ture is to bo made at lite next ses
sion of the law making body; and
the Maui candidates will get support
of the homesteaders largely upon
their stand on this matter. Governor
Pinkham's views on tho matter of
homestead roads have been expressed
and the settlors believe they can
count on ids support.
Will Welcome Civic Convention.
A resolution was adopted inviting
the delegates to the Civic Convention
to visit the homestead district dur
ing their slay on Maui, from October
3 to 5.'

The following is from retiring Pres
ident Livingston's report:
"On August 10th, 1013, a permanent
organization was effected, a set of by
laws adopted and officers elected.
"Since t lint date eleven meetings
have been hold. Following is a bilef
resume of matters discussed and act
ed upon. First, and perhaps most
imp'ottant was tho agitation which re
sulted in tho Homestead Road con
necting a large area directly with the
cannery and the terminus of tho rail
road. Tiie matter of greatest Import
ance to the community at tho present
I line is tho further extension of this
road to the next ridge and the macad
amizing of the same.
"Thru the kindness of Mr. and Mrs.
Cooper a circulating library hns been
maintained and lias proved beneficial.
"Thru tho personal interest of Mr.
Krauss, a piano, which has contribut
ed largely ot tho lifo of the commun
ity, was secured.
"Mr. Farnsworth and his "cattle
nuisance" committee did a very ef
fective piece or work that is much
appreciated by tho community.
"Unanimous action in the matter of
tax returns very materially decreased
the amount ot taxes that would other
wise have been levied upon us.
"Instructive papers were read and
dlscurscd with profit:
'Pineapples' by Mr. C. O. White.
'Diversified Crops' by Mr. W. I.
'Chickens' by Mrs. Will J. Cooper.
'Turkeys' by Mrs. II. L. Sailors.
'Our Dual Consciousness' by Prof.
Fresh Fruit and General Market
ing by Dr. Wilcov.
'The Pineapple Situation by Mr. J.
"The very considerable drop in tho
price of fresh fruit brought together
a largo crowd to consider ways and
maens of meeting this serious condi
tion. Fresh fruit shipment was dis
cussed and thoroughly investigated,
Dr. Wilcox making a special trip to
Haiku to discuss tho matter before us,
and your president making a trip to
Honolulu to get first hand and definite
information. A "Pineapple Division
of tho Haiku Farmers' Association"
was formed, by-laws wero adopted,
and officers elected. They continued
investigation of the fresh fruit pro
position and havo found it impracti
cable to undertake shipments at tho

izatlon being felt, n committee on re
vised constitution and by-laws was
appointed. Tho report of this com
mittee wns discussed at our last reg
ular mooting and after numerous
changes, was adopted.
"A recent special meeting wns call
ed to begin ngltntlon of tho piesont
serious road situation. An effort was
made to havo an Item of $50,000 in
sorted in tho coming plebiscite. -Tills
failing, the matter is now In compe
tent hands and will bo brought be
fore tho proper authorities in the
next legislature. Tho immediate nec
essity of permanent roads is evident
to all, and no opportunity for impress
ing upon tho law makers, officials and
general public that roads aro tho first
essential of a successful rural com
munity, must bo overlooked.
"This brief resume will show you
as members Hint a very considerable
amount of good has come to the com
munity thru organization, that could
not havo been accomplished by Indi
viduals. Wo bespeak increasing use
fulness for tho "Haiku Farmers' Association."
HAWAIIAN YOUTH IN SERIOUS
Hose Pnlekai, a 20-year old Hawaii
an boy ot Makawao, was arrested tills
week charged with having unlawful
intercourse with a girl under fourteen
yenrs of age. Tho girl In the case
is soon to become a mother. It, is
alleged that Palckal is also entangled
with another very young girl in the
district. The age of the girl makes
tho crime a penitentiary offense, and
tho accused Is held to answer an in
dictment of the grand jury.
ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE TO
BE TERRITORIAL BODY.
Strongly endorsing the work of tho
Anti-Saloon League of Honolulu, the
Maui Evangelical Association, during
its cession last Saturday, adopted a
strong resolution favoring tho exten
sion of tho scope of this work, as out
lined by Rev. John W. Wadman, sup
erintendent of tho local league. Dr.
Wadman's plan is to make the league
a territorial body, instead of simply
a Honolulu branch as it has hereto
fore been. Ho states that tho plan
will undoubtedly bo carried out, thus
greatly strengthening the organiza
tion. ADJUDGED INSANE.
Dorcas Enos, of Waikapu, a Ha
waiian woman of twenty-five years of
age, was on Wednesday adjudged in
sane, and taken to the territoritil asy
lum In Honolulu.

Memento For Mlssourlan.
The American-Hawaiian freighter
Mlnaniirlnti was nresented with a
brass plate, suitably engraved, by tho
Honolulu Chamber of Commerce, in
commemoration of tho fact that this
vessel was tho first to reach Hawaii
from tho Atlantic vin the Panama
Canal. Tho presentation took place
at a luncheon at tho Commercial Club
Had Hard Time Leaving Europe.
Johannes K. Eckardt, superinten
dent of the Queen's Hospital, Hono
lulu, who arrived home this week
from a visit ot Germany, reports that
ho had no easy time In getting out
of Europe. He is an Austrian by birth,
and had he not started immediately
upon the breaking out of hostilities,
would probably havo been unable to
leave at all. He declares that tho
common people of Europe know prac
tically nothing of what 1b going on In
their war-ridden land, or why.
Crockett Not To Enlarge.
E. Faxon Bishop, just returned from
tho Coast denies that there is any in-
tention of enlarging tho capacity of
tho Crockett Refinery with tlio view
to handling the entire output of the
Hawaiian Islands. The story origin
ated with the ruling of the Interstate
Commission, which lowered freight
rates on sugar to such a degree that
western refiners can now market as
far east as Chicago in competition
wtih eastern refiners.
Fanning Island Taken by Germans.
According to reports received from
Vancouver, Fanning Island was cap
tured by troops from tho German
cruiser Lcipsig or Nurnberg on Sep
tember 7th, and the British cable sta
tion there put out of commission.
Big Rain on Oahu.
Heavy rain In tho head of Manoa
Valley, Honolulu, carried out a bridge
on Tuesday afternoon. At tho naval
station, Pearl Harbor, considerable
damage was done to construction
work in progress.
WELL KNOWN HAWAIIAN DIES.
Kaliko, a well known Hawaiian on

and was one of a large family of well
known natives. The deceased formerly
lived at Makawao and at Kaheka.
