THE MAUI XFAVS. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3. 1914.
Up En Price
Scarcity Of Meat Due To War Is
Reflected Here By Wholesale
Advance Of 2 Cents. Retail Price
Will Go Up Also.
Tiio wireless report that the price
of lieef has been advanced in Hono
lulu twice within the past month, has
In a measure prepared Maui house
wives for the sympathetic advance In
local markets, which, according to
local meat men, will have to come
very soon. In fact there isn't any
doubt that prices will go up. It is
only a matter of deciding just how
much of a raise will have to be made
On October 1, it is stated, the Ray
mond Ranch advanced the wholesale
price of beef, two cents per pound,
and it is predicted that the retail
prices will go up 2V6 to 3 cents, or
a rise of from 15 and 17 to 11
and 20 cents. These last figures are
si ill considerably lower than Honolulu
prices even before recent war ad
vances. Th" price of meat will probably rise
from thirty to fifty per cent within
the next few weeks, according to the
Advertiser. As has been previously
stated there are not enough cattle in
Hawaii to supply the requirement.
The British government lias placed
an embargo on the shipment of Aus
tralian meats to any country other
This is a war time measure and
while New Zealand is still free to
ship her beef and mutton to Hawaii,
there are now no ships sailing from
New Zealand to this port.
Ad long as the embargo remains ef
fective Hawaii must look to California
for her surplus meats. Coast prices
are fully twenty-five per cent higher
than Hawaiian prices for even grades
and nualilies of beef, veal and mutton.
In Circuit Court.
In the case of C. J. Schoening vs.
William Miner, assumpsit, which has
been dragging through the Second
Circuit Couit for some months, Judge
Edings yesterday morning rendered
an opinion denying a motion of the
defendant to set aside the sale of
real property, made by the sheriff
under writ of vendi tloni exponas.
Arguments had been heard on the mo
tion by the court earlier in the week,
and decision reset ved. The matter is
one of considerable interest to the
local legal fraternity. The sale of
properly in question brought $250 to
wards satisfying a judgment of $419.40
held by the plaintiff. E. R. Bevins
represented the plaintiff; Enos Vin
cent, the defendant; and Eugene Mur
phy was attorney for Joe Silva, the
purchaser of the property in quesiton.
In the Second Circuit Court this
week, Judge Edings approved the final
accounts of F. P. Rosecrans, adminis
trator of the estate of Sukesabura Ya
masaki, deceased, and ordered the dis
charge of the administrator.
De Souza Estate Settled.
The same action was taken in the
matter of the estate of Jaclntho de
Souza, deceased, J. S. Medeiros, ad
ministrator. Palekai Bail Fixed. '
In the matter of the Territory vs.
William Hose Palekai, charged with
a criminal offense involving a girl un
der fourteen years of age, the court
fixed bail at $500.
Distribution in Chong Fook Estate.
A partial distribution of the funds in
the hands of J. R. Love, administrator
of the estate of Chong Fook, deceased,
was ordered made to Chong Jack Pon,
heir, in the sum of $400, of which
amount $225 is to be used in settling
the' suit of T. Ah Koe against the
Judge Making Records.
Judge Edings is making a record in
the volume of work he is able to
transact in a given time. A week ago
yesterday he conducted the drawing
of the grand and trial jury lists for
the October term of court; heard and
determined an application to sell real
estate; heard and determined a non
contested divorce case; and beard and
rendered an opinion in a contested di
vorce case, all between the hours of
10 a. m. and noon.

Island Fans Will Have Chance To
See Star Men In Action If Plans
Work Out Will Be Here In
That a large aggregation of star
ball players of the world will visit
Hawaii this winter, is the claim of
H. O. Lowry, of Honolulu, who has
been corresponding with Frank C.
Pancrort, manager of the All-Nationals,
and Connie Mack, of the All
Americans. Lowry Rtates that ar
rangements have been made for the
playeis to start west on October 18,
playing across the continent and on
the Pacific Coast up to December 2nd,
whii they will sail for Honolulu.
In his communicaiton to Lowry,
Bancroft states that, he had arranged
for the following players to make a
tour of the Pacific Coast and Hawaii:
Teucau, New York; James, Boston
Braves; Alexander, Philadelphia; and
Vaughn, Chicago, pitchers; and Killi
ler, Philadelphia; and Clarke, Cincin
nati, ratchets. Jack Miller, St. Louis,
first base; Heinie Groh, Concinnati,
second base; Arthur Fletcher, New
York, shortstop; Byrne, Philadelphia,
third base; and Carey, Pittsburgh,
Snod.erass, New York, and George
Burns, New York, outfielders.
For the All-Americans, Connie Mack
will have: Bender and Bush, Ath
letics and Mitchell, Cleveland, pitch
ers; Wallie Schang, Athletics, and
Steve O'Neil, Cleveland, catchers;
Hoblitzel, Boston Red Sox, first base;
Chapman, Cleveland, second base;
BtHh, Detroit, shortstop: Moriarity,
Detroit, third base; and Walsh, Ath
letics, Danny Murphy, Athletics, and
Duffy Lewis, Boston 'Red Sox, out
fielders. In one of the letters dated at New
Yo;-it, Bancroft stated that he had
talked to Christy Mathewson and the
pride of all the baseball world had sig
nified his willingness to make the trip
to Hawaii. Bancroft also said that
pitcher Mayer of Philadelphia and
Sam Hyatt, first baseman of Pitts
burgh, desired to come along.
Bancroft further stated that while
the All-American team line up was a
certainty, there possibly might be a
change or two and if such was the
case, Connie Mack intended drawing
on players from his own team, so
whichever player3 do come, the local
fans can count on stars of the first
watt?r being in the line up.
