is a Pleasure
It will probably be some time be
fore a more artistic and altogether
attractive publication is seen in Ha
wall than is the Christmas number
of the I'aradise of the Pacific, just
off the press. The Issue Is profusely
illustrated and the cuts and press
work are of a high order. Many of
the illustrations are multi-color cut
of much beauty. The text, consist
ing of articles from many well known
writers, is In keeping with the rest
of the magazine. The lending editor
ial on Christmas is especially well
worth mentioning both for its sub
stance and style. The Issue is some
thing that not only the publishers, but
the Islands may well be proud of. I;

Boy Scout Recep
tion a Success
The Alexander House Gymnasium
was comfortably filled last, Saturday
evening by a merry throng of dancers
and on lookers, the occasion being the
reception given by the Maui Boy
Scout organization. Rev. Father Fran
cis, of Paia, who is scout commission
er for Maul, headed the splendid Pnia
patrol of Scouts which attended in a
body. The boys niad. a veiy credit
.blo appearance. Under the pains
taking efforts of Father FrT?cis, the
Seoul movement on thin island Is con
lng to be recog t ,e 1 as one of In
estimable value to the bos v.here-
ever a company has been established
Act on Ordinance
The county board of supervisors
will hold its monthly meeting begin
ning next Wednesday. So far as is
known, the only matter of much mo
ment aside from the routine business
of the meeting, will be the final con
sideration on the proposed ordinance
creating a department of county en
gineer. The fact that the proposed
ordinance has been objected to on the
ground that it will create a county
political machine of surpassing effect
iveness, may possibly result, in some
amendments being made to the ordi
nance before its final passage.
The Maul supervisors have endear
ed themselves to the hearts of those
who believe In sober, efficient, em
ployees, by tabooing booze on the part
of county employees. One of them
who visits a drinking place during
working hours will be- dismissed.
FOR SCHOOL ESTIMATES.
Secretary Thayer has issued a call
for the biennial meeting of the board
of school estimates to be held in Ho
nolulu on December 15. This board
consists of the Territorial Secretary
as chairman; the superintendent of
public instruction; the mayor of Ho
nolulu and the chairmen of tho board
of supervisors of Maul, Kaui, and Ha
waii. BUYS MOLOKAI RANCH LEASE.

WAILUKU LIGHTED BY MILL
in order to permit certain repairs
to be made at the power plant of the
Island Electric Company, connection
was made this week with the gener
ators M the Wailuku Sugar Com
pany's mill, and for several days cur
rent was furnished from the mill
Kaeleku to Begin
Grinding Next Week
Kaeloitu plantation, at liana, will
begin grinding on the 1S15 crop next
week. The past 'season has been ex
ceptionally favorable and the outlook
Is for another record breaking year
unless the weather should become un
usually unfavorable before the crop
Is all harvested.
The mill will start with a new chem

kalnu Plantation Company, having
taken the place of J. R. Lougher, who

pany, on Hawaii, as head luna.
On Maui For Honeymoon
The Maui friends of John R. Bergs
strom, the well known representative
of the Honolulu Music Company, were
surprised this week by the announce
ment of his marriage in Honolulu on
Tuesday evening to Miss Eugenia Yar
rington, of San Francisco. Mr. Berg-
strom and his bride arrived on Maui
by the Mauna Kea on Wednesday
evening and are spending their honey
moon on this island.
Mrs. Bergstrom arrived from the
Coast on Tuesday morning by the
Manoa, and the marriage was perform
ed the same evening by the Rev. J
W. Wadman in the presence of a few
of the near relatives of the groom.
Information at hand is to the effect
that $82,000 in cash has been forward
ed from the Hawaiian Islands for the
relief of suffering in the European
countries at war. The figures are in
teresting. Estimating the population
of the rest of the United States at
100,000,000 and granting that the Unit
ed States, outside of Hawaii, has done
as much, the enormous total of $41
000,000 In cash would have been sent
from our country to Europe. But the
people on the mainlanu, although
closer to the scene of hostilities and
suffering, have not responded so lib
erally as has little Hawaii. It Is
doubtful that, In proportion to popu
lation, they have done one-twentieth
as much. Has Hawaii covered herself
with glory, or been unreasonably, and
gratuitously, overstrainde? Garden

On the island of Niihau Superin
tendent Kinney, of the Department of
Education, had to ride fifteen miles on
horseback to teach the little school

ly, but the children were markedly

Mokuaweoweo Very Active.
The eruption of Mauna Loa is con
fined to the summit crater of Mokua
weoweo, according to returning par
ties. There is no sign of outbreak
lower down, as at first reported. The
area of activity is as large as the en
tire crater of Kllauea, it is said, and
is strikingly spectacular. The trip
is best made by tho new trail from
the Volcano House. Prof. Jarsar, the
vokanologist in charge of tho observa

storm and was compelled to return,
abandoning his instruments on the
