LET'S KEEP OUR BOND MONEY AT HOME.
Waimea, Kauai, is to have a fine new $65,000 landing that is, pro
vided Kauai people are willing to subscribe $65,000 of Territorial bonds
for building the same. The Legislature authorized the wharf, and
authorized the issuance of bonds to pay for same.. The President gave
approval to the issue, and just when everything was going swimmingly
the European war suddenly broke, and put the selling of these securities,
through ordinary channels, completely out of question for the time
'ring and for an indefinite period in the future. But the Governor
ells Kauai that she can have her wharf just the same provided she
an handle a few of these bonds at a figure that is within reason for
The idea seems an excellent one and one which Maui might well
mWc advantage of in order to secure some very badly needed improve
ments. For instance there is the $150,000 wharf planned for Lahaina.
This is the first step in the important plan of a belt road from Lahaina
to liana in which everybody is interested.. Engineers say the wharf
is feasible. Moreover it is demonstrated that the project would pay
for itself in the freight which would go over it right from the start.
It would make Lahaina possibly the most popular port on Maui, with
ihe traveling public, instead of being more or less of a nuisance as it
is at the present time. It is stated on good authority, that this amount
of bonds could undoubtedly be subscribed without undue difficulty right
here on Maui, especially provided they are offered in the "baby" det o
nir.ations in order that the small investor might be accommodated.

AN OCCASION FOR STRONG ACTION.
The faculties of both Punahou and McKinley I!ij,rh School should see
:o it that the men who took part in last Saturday's slugging match, which
I. ad been advertisd as a football game, are debarred from further play
-his season. If there is any other punishment short of summary expul
sion, it should be applied also. Boys may choose to disgrace them
selves, but have no right to bring reproach upon their schools.

HOPE FOR THE HOMESTEADERS.
It is hard to over-estimate the value to Maui as a whole, and to the
Maui homesteaders more particularly, of the demonstration farm which
he federal government will soon have in running order in the Haiku
iistrict. It is quite probable that it may be the means of saving the
Haiku district from the fate that has overtaken practically every pre
vious homesteading attempt in the Territory. Certainly the settlers out
there are in a rather desperate position just at present, and need any
nope that can be held out to them.
The plan, as well as its carrying out to its present point of certainty,
is due almost entirely to Dr. E. V. Wilcox, whose services the Islands
have unfortunately now lost. Its execution will in no small measure
rest with Prof. F. G. Krauss, who has just resigned an important chair
m the College of Hawaii in order to undertake the work. That he
does so at a greatly reduced salary, is 'videnc enough of the sincerity
of his purpose. The Haiku farmers have good reason for congratulat

GET TOGETHER FOR CLEAN BASEBALL.
Some ill feeling is in evidence as a result of the winning of the base
I all series by the Puunene team. This is a matter of regret to all lovers
of clean sport. The Puunenes won fairly and are entitled to their vic
tory, but there is no denying that the Wailuku boys played the last few
;ames under discouraging circumstances. It is to be hoped that steps
will be taken at once to reorganize our team, and still more to be hoped
that it may have a strong and active management back of it one that
ill command the support of Wailuku fans to a man. Puunene's suc
cess was due largely to team work and to the loyal support given the
players through thick and thin. Wailuku has belter players and a wider
iiekl to draw from than has Puunene. but we reed more of the real
porting spirit that will stand back of our boys, uphold clean sport, and
suppress rowdyism. Unless these can be secured the end of baseball
ji Maui is near.
Monthly Feature Inaugurated Which
Meets With General Approval
Business Session and Address
By Noted Visitor.
Carrying out a suggestion adopted
a month ago by the Maul Chamber of
Commerce, the first monthly lun-h-meeting
was held at the Maul Hotel
on Thursday of this week. The affair
was thoroughly enjoyed by between
thirty and forty members of the body,
and it is quite certain that the inno
vation will be kept up.
The main feature of the meeting
was an address by Dr. Frederick
Stubbs, F. R. G. S., who is paying
a brief visit to Maul in the course of
a tour of the islands. Dr. Stubbs,

experiences in many different lands.
He paid a very high compliment to
the climate and scenery of Hawaii,
and to the hospitality of hot people,
and promised to help spread the news

A report was made to the meeting
by Director Bevlns, who had in hand
the chief work of arranging for the
last Civic Convention. This report
showed that the convention cost Maui
in cash, the sum of f 21)41.20, this be
ing $105.20 more than the committee
had collected for the purpose. The
Chamber, however, voted to pay the
deficiency, President F. F. Baldwin
declaring that while the cost of the
big event had been 20 per cent c eat
er than had been anticipated, the
success of the crnvi-rtion had been
about 120 per cent greater than any
body had dared to hope.
