British Traveler and Writer Now On
Maui, Answers Some Of tbe Points
Made In Article From Pen Of Amer
ican Lecturer, Regarding War,
Tho following letter Is written by
a well known traveler, who, though
of English nationality, claims the
world In general as his home. Dr.
Stubbs has been sojourning in the
Islands for some weeks, and for the
past week has been taking in the
sights of Maul. Ho is a writer of
some note, a traveler of much exper
ience, and a keen observer. His view
point concerning the great struggle in
Europe, is of course, parti- , but is
EDITOR MAUI NEWS:
Sir: I have just seen in your issue
of the 7th inst., a long, bitterly-par-tlzan
letter on the war, signed by
J. L. Stoddard.
I do not propose to burden your
pages with a detailed reply to his
charges against tho Allies, but beg
leave to suggest:
1. That peace-loving, humane, and
cultured as tho Germans may be, It
is rather too much to ask us to be
lieve that they are tho only good
people in Europe, as Mr. Stoddard
practically does. Surely all tho na
tions that sympathize with tho Allies
cannot bo entirely bad.
2. Mr. Stoddard admits that Ger
many declared war first on Ilussla,
then on France, and I on my part ad
mit that both Russia and France had
begun to mobilize. But mobilization
and war arc not the same thing, any
more than barricading your doors, and
if you please, even getting your re
volver ready, are not the same thing
as smashing your way Into your neigh
bor's house and destroying his family.
The one is a defensive, the other an
3. It is true that, as tho writer
points out, the British people are ac
customed to criticize themselves and
their rulers freely, and to form so
cieties for betterment, but one can
hardly regard this as an evidence of
Britain's special vileness. It at all
events shows that the people arc
aware of imperfections and aim at
correcting them, which might be
thought rather creditable than other
wise. 4. I have probably lived In England
as much as Mr. Stoddard, and have
been personally acquainted with
many of her public men, and I feel
quite certain that tho sordid, envious,
and wicked motives he attributes to
the British people aro without founda
tion. They havo no territorial am
bition in Europe, and desire peace
and prosperity for all. If Germany
weie unhappily destroyed, they would,
lose t'molr best customer. They do not
believe in any single nation being
"over all," but that even tho smallest
of European nationalities should have
freedom to develop Its life and re
sources without interference. It was
Germany, and not England, that at
tacked and partitioned Denmark In
186-1, that crushed Austria in 1866,
that crushed and partitioned Franco in
1870, (hat declared war on France and
Russia in 191-1, and that destroyed and
devastated Belgium without any' de
claration of war. No other European
Powei lias' such a record. No doubt
Mr. Stoddard would claim, as many
Goimans do, that Germany has a per
fect right to attack, destroy, or par
tition other European states; and this
I do not contest. I simply point out
5. With much that Mr. Stoddard
has written in pralso of tho German
people, I, in common with most En
glishmen, heattlly agree. That they
aro bravo, efficient, rystematlc, indus
trious, olc, one gladly admits. One
Is not quite so sure that they have
not declined in somo of tho moral vir
tuesin simplicity, frugality, chastity,
sobriety, moral ideals. I wish it were
otherwise. Thousands of Germans, In
cluding tho Kaiser, havo expressed
thoir concern on this account, as every
friend of Germany must.
C. I agree, too, that the German
people aro, as a whole, united and
earnest In this war. Whether they
know all tho facts and will bo as
unanimous in a year's time, is an
other question. Ono cannot forget
that tho German press Is controlled
by Government; dare not publish any
thing forbidden; must publish what
it is ordered. Freedom of speech, of
public meeting, of tho press, do not
exist In Germany.
7. Mr. Stoddard speaks of tho par
ticipation of tho Servian government
in tho murder of tbe Austrian prince
as a thing proved. They may or may

not havo been guilty. For mvsolf. T
should require conclusive evidonco be
fore I could believe that any govern
ment would bo guilty of such an act.
At all events, no proof has been forth
coming so far, though tho Servian gov
ernment offered to go to the Hacuo
Tribunal, an offer which Austria sig
nificantly refused. It was an Austrian
subject (though Servian by birth) that
killed the prince. Had Austria con
sented to go to tho Hague, war would
have been averted. If an Austrian,
naturalized In U. S. A., killed an offl-
clal, ono would hardly mako war on
tho whole Austrian people.
In regard to many things, I greatly
admire tho German people, from
whom I have received many kind
neiset, and sincerely wish them well,
but I cannot honestly say that I ad
mire the conduct of their government,
and tho methods adopted by their
army in this dreadful war.

Advertisement Of February Carnival
Bringing Replies From All Parts
Of Country Local Demand For
Carnival Posters Heavy.
(Special to Maul News.)
HONOLULU, November 12. There
Is hardly a steamship company, rail
road system or lourlst bureau In the
United States that Is not going to
cooperate with the Hawaii promotion
committee during the next twelve
months In securing greater tourist
travel to Hawaii.. This fact is borne
out in each of nearly fifty cumniuni
cations which were received by thp
committee from tho mainland in the
last mail, acknowledging receipt of
the 1915 Mid-Pacific Carnival posters
and offering to assist the committee
in encouraging tourist travel.
Every communication bears an In
tercsting message. They point out
that the carnival poster has met with
slucere approval and that these no
tices of Hawaii's annual celebration
havo been placed in conspicuous
places where they may be seen by
thousands of persons dally.
Tho traveling passenger agent of
tho San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt
Lake Railroad Company has written
to the committee as follows.
"This will acknowledg-3 receipt of
your poster advertising ho Mld-an-
lflc Carnival, February 20 to i!7, 1915.
We have placed thi3" poster in our
show window and expect we will
catch a few touiists and send them
to you for tho winter."
The Atchison, Topeka aniLSanta Fc
Railway system has informed the com
mittee that It has received ono of the
posters, and that tho poster has been
placed In a conspicuous place in tho
company's office In Salt Lake City.
Tho Southern Pacific Company
writes as follows:
'Wo have just received your poster
advertising tho Mid-Pacific Carnival to
bo held in Honolulu February 20 to
27, 1915. Wo expect quite a largo
travel to Honolulu this winter as ono
result of tho European war, and we
would like to have a supply of assort
ed literature desnlblng tho attrac
tions of your Islands. Will you, there
fore, send us a small supply of tho dif
ferent kinds and greatly oblige?"
The manager of one of the largest
hotels in Denver, Colorado, has writ
ten the committee a very enthusiastic
letter which is, in part, as follows:
"I believe that now is tho proper
time for your promotion committee to
get busy with tho states in promoting
your climate, resorts, etc. On account
of the European war, tho business
that has been going to Europe for "the
past few years will probably stop for
a number of years. Anything that
we can do to promote your Interests
will bo our pleasure."
H. P. Wood, director of tho promo
tion committee, reports that tho local
demand for carnival posters, mailing
cards, postal caids and stickers, is
heavy. Tho committee Is sending out
large numbers of mailing cards to var
ious railroads agents throughout tho
United States, and small packets of
stickers to those persons whoso
names aro on tho committee's mailing

: Those Who Travel j
Work on Rest
Committee Visits Mountain Top and
Selects Site Will Be atCralgalea
Comfort For Visitors Will Be As
sured and House Will Be Cared For
After a visit to tho summit of the
mountain, on Tuesday of this week,
the members of tho Haleakala rest
house committee of the Mhul Chamber
of Commerce, have definitely decid-
pd upon tho location of the structure,
as well as in considerable measure
its details of construction and furnish
Ings. Working plans have been or
dered, and within tho next ten days
It Is hoped to havo contracted for
the materials, transportation of same
and the construction of the building.
It is expected to havo tho house ready
for use within tho next month or two.
The new house wlino 16x40 feet
In size, and will be built of stone and
hy-rib concrete construction. Tho roof
Is to bo of this last named material,
which Is practically indestructible
The house is to stand, according to
W. O. Alkcn, who made a verbal re
port to the Chamber of Commerce at
the meeting on Thursday, on tho Vry
brink of the crater, and long windows
will command a vleAV of tho great pit
without tho necessity of exposure to
tho oftimes severe outside tempera
ture. Similar windows on tho other
side will command a view over the
greater part of central Maul. Tho
house is to have steel shutters, and
will bo provided with iron berths,
similar to those in use on steamships.
It is designed to accommodate com
fortably about twenty persons at ono
time. Craig-alea will bo the site of
tho new house. The committee de
cided upon this after spending a large
part of a day In visiting other parts
of the crater rim.
Must rtaise $1000 More.
Tho Chamber of Commerce was ad
vised that the cost of the new house,
together with other improvements
which are deemed essential about tho
place, will bo about $2500. Of this
amount, about $1500 was raised by
the members of tho last Civic Con
vention. The committee expressed its
confidence of being able to get the
remainder through subscriptions from
In this connection, Geoige Cooper,
of Hana, announced that tho Hana
district would be responsible for $100
of the needed amount.
While it has not yet been decided
whether it will bo feasible to maintain
a keeper at the house at all times,
tho building is to bo of such char
acter that it cannot bo easily damaged
by vandals. A charge will bo made
for use of tho house, which will go
to the Chamber of Commerce and be
used towards tho upkeep. Arrange
ments are being made for securing a
long-time lease on tho land on which
tho rest houso will stand, from the
Haleakala Ranch Company, and this
will also bo In tho name of tho Cham
Howell Reports Tem
porary Work In County
Oounty.Englneer Howell reported to
the Board of Supervisors this week
that tho Molokai roads are in a good
condition generally, with the excep
tion of tho damage caused by the
washing out of four bridges during
tho terrific rains of a month or more
ago. Tho bridge over tho Honouli
maloo gulch is at tho present time
being replaced, and tho" others can
can bo dispensed with until after tho
first of tho year when" tho new as
sessments nro levied.
Temporary Relief for Hana.
Tho Supervisors havo taken $2000
from tho general fund to bo used for
making the road between Hana and
Kipahulu passable. Engineer Howell
recommends that tho road bo relocat
ed later, but it is necessary for tho
present to open the road to vehicle
traffic. Tho most costly work to this
end will be tho replacing of tho Pa-
Good Weather Helps Kuiaha.
Tho Kuiaha homestead roads, Mr.
Howell reported, aro becoming pass
able onco more, though ho admits
that a few weeks of dry weather have
had more to do with this than has
the gang of prisoners, and tho bullock
team which ha3 been working there
recently. It will bo necessary, ho
reminds tho board, to macadamize tho
main roads in this district before they
will ever be satisfactory; the present
work being simply remedial.
Road Pau on
Fine Piece Of Road That Cost $85,000
and Benefits Nobody, About to Be
Taken Off Contracts' Hands
Loan Commission Soon Pau.
Wilson and McCandless, who have,
been at work on the several mile,
section of the belt road from Nahiku
towards Kcanuo for over a year, have
finally completed their job and the
work will probably be taken off their
hands next week. It is understood
IlK't Superintendent of Public Works
Forbes will arrive on Tuesday to
Inspect tho work, In company with
tho mcmbcis of the loan fund com
mission, under whoso direction the
contract was carried through. The
board of supervisors ,may, also go
over the new road at the same time.
It is reported that the new piece
of work Is an excellent one though of
practically no benefit to anybody,
slnco it ends in the bottom of a wide
gulch, in tho Koolau forest reserve,
miles from any permanent habitation.
The cost of this new section was
something like $85,000, and was paid
for from a territorial loan fund, au
thorized several years ago. About
$135,000.00 additional authorized by
the legislature at tho time, had
been planned to carry the road
into the Keanae Valley, but any fur
ther expenditure on this road has
been disapproved by Governor Pink
ham, so there is no likelihood what
ever that the road already built will
have any real value for a good while
The road is carried along the moun
tain s(de, several thousand feet above
tho sea level, and close below the
famous Koolau Ditch trail, and
through one of the most spectacular
scenic sections in tho Territory. Ow
ing to the almost constant rain in tho
district, the contractors had to con
tend with serious difficulties in carry
ing through their job.
It is understood that the Maul loan
fund commission will formally go out
of existence as soon as this last con
tract is finally disposed of:
