Puunene to Play Punahou.
One of tho important matters set
tled at the mooting, .was the game
to bo played with tho Punahou team
of Honolulu on Now Year's Pay.
Tho committee of the Association
which had been appointed at a pre
vious meeting to investigate tho feas
ibility ot getting a good strong All
Maul team together to play the Puna
hous on New Year's, reported that
tho captain and manager of the All
Maul team were unable to get a good
team together. Paschoal, manager of
tho Puuneno team, who was present
at tho meeting of tho Association,
mentioned that neither ho nor any of
tho Puuneno players had been ap
proached on the proposition at all.
The matter was finally settled by
a motion to decline the offer of the
Punahous to visit Maul on New Year's
and tliis motion being carried, the
management of the Puunene Baseball
Team announced that the Invitation
to tho Punahous would be extended
by them for a visit to Maui on New
Year's. Tho Association, however,
will lend the Puunene management
every possible encouragement. It is
therefore up to manager Paschoal to
exert himself and this ho will be well
able to do with tho loyal support
which ho will receive from tho plan
Money in Treasury.
Contrary to expectations on the
part of some, tho Association made a
llttlo money on the season's games
this year, and It is expected that when
all the bills are paid there will still
remain about $100 in tho treasury.
After some discussion it was decided
to divide this sum as follows: Fifty
percent to tho winning team, 30 per
cent to the losers, 10 per cent to the
Junior league, and 10 per cent to be
retained by tho Association.
Refuses to Use New Structure
Until Marking Buoys Are Placed
McGregors, "Unsafe" But
Will Still Be Used.
Although tho new landing at Kihei
has been completed and accepted
from tho contractors for several
weeks, tho Inter-Island boats continue
to mako use of the old wharf at Mo
Gregors. At a meeting of the board
of harbor commissioners held last
week, tho company's representatives
declined to use tho Klhei wharf until
tho llghthouso servico can establish
a number of marking buoys and gas
buoys to make tho approach less un
certain than it Is claimed is tho caso
at presont. Tho company also urges
Its mall contract as a reason why It
cannot abandon McGregors at short
notice. Tho board finally adopted a
motion Btating that while McGregors
landing is hold to bo dangerous and
unsafe, the steamship company is
given permission to uso It on its own
responsibility and provided that tho
company makes such repairs as aro

Territory, to his excellency, tho Gov

Governor Outlines Terms On Which
Lease For Railroad to Home
stead Lands Will Be Granted
Badly Needed Improvement.
A proposition has been on foot on
Kauai for some time past to construct
a railroad from Nawlllwlll harbor to
tho homestead lands recently opened
up on that island. Governor Plnkham
has just sent a letter to the Land
Commissioner outlining the stand the
fcrrltory will take in the matter, with
reference to the government land
which will be crossed by the pro
posed line. Tho policy thus sot forth
Is of considerable general interest,
and is as follows:
"Tho governor .will approve ot a li
cense to the Lihuo Plantation com
pany for a term of years, to con
struct operate and maintain a railway
lino on or across tho government
lands of Wailua, and said railway to
oonnect with the existing lines of rail
way now tho proporty of the govern
ment or by expiration of leases to
become tho property of .the govern
ment, and Eaid railway shall bo built
under the supervision of tho Territo
rial superintendent of public works
and a record shad bt kept of tho
exact cost of said railway, which rec
ord shall be certified to by tho super
intendent of public works, through
whom duplicate vouchers shall be fur
nished Iho Territorial auditor, and
"Tho Territory shall reserve tho
right to directly or Indirectly cancel
or take over said license and railway
by paying directly or indirectly to
said Lihuo Plantation company tho
cost of said railway plus ten per cunt
of said cost, together with an adjust
ment of tho interest at tho rate of
six per cent per annum on said cost
based on tho failure of said railway
to earn said six per cent, should such
prove to bo tho case.
"Tho administration rccogni7.es tho
absolute necessity of relief to tho
homesteaders on northeast Kauai, not
ably those growing pineapples, and,
further, tho necessity of a safe port
for deep sea vessels, presumably Na
wlliwili, hence favors terms that will
securo prompt action.
"Tho lease of the government lands
of Wailua, Kauai, expires on October
1, 1917, and there Is no legal way at
tho present time to determlno tho ex
act disposition that will be mado of
"According to our laws they must
bo homcstcaded, If a legal demand Is
made, or, If not so required or only
partially required, the lands or tho re
mainder can bo offered at public sale
"It Is unlawful and against public
policy to in any way prejudice free
and lawful competition for theso
"You will please furnish copies of
this letter to any and all parties in
Interest at your discretion."
