later that Sniffen had succumbed his
injuries, the report proved to be gross

will probably be out of the hospital
in a day or two, as good as ever. He
sustained a terrific bump on the head
that produced a concussion of (he

were really less serious than those of

with Mrs. Case, A. C. Warner, and T.

Just below the K. of P. hall on Main
street, (he auto met the motorcycle
coming up, and although Mr. Case
drove his car Into the right bank In
order to avoid the collision, the motor
cycle driver, apparently rrattlod" also
swung to the same side and the crash
was almost direct. The injured boys
wore rushed to the Mnlulani hospital
in Mr. Case's machine, which although
damaged, wa not put out of com

the car were hurt.

Maui Public Liberal in Support of
Movies Orpheum Makes Repairs.
The possibility of a combination
being effected between the manage
ment of the new Valley Isle Theater
and that of the Walluku Orphoum,
was a rumor current this week. It
is understood that negotiations with
this object in view are now in pro
gress. In case such a scheme is car
ried out it will mean tho closing ot
the Orpheum once more and the con
tlnuance of tho Maui Theater, which
lately combined with tho Valley Is'r,
and which is to lie closed with the
opening of the now play house.
Tho popularity of the movies on
Maui is one of tho surprising things
of tho day. It is estimated that in
Wailuku alone approximately $500
per week is spent in admissions to
tho two theaters. When it is remem
bered that this is not for any single
week, but Is kept up with much reg
ularity, it tends (o take tho edge off
any talk of hard times. Including all
the play houses on tho Island, it is
likely that ?750 por week is not at all
an extreme estiniato of what Maui
people spend in this one form of
Tho Walluku Orpheum made a num
ber of repairs this week which have
very noticeably improved tho pictures
shown. Tho projecting machine was
overhauled and a new screen put up,
with perhaps ono hundred percent
better results than before. Tho Mary
Pickford play, "Tho Eagle's Mate" on
Tuesday night drew a crowded lwuce,
and was well up to tho standa:d of
this popular artist's work.

Jonah Kumalao has been awarded

Crushed Between Wharf and Ship.
Second Mate O. Arnoson, of the oil

own life last week in saving a ship

would have drowned had not Arensen

rope around his body by which ho was
hauled out by bystanders. Before he
could get himself out, however, the

him against tho structure. Ho was un

New Year's Porker Goes Over Board
and Reaches Cane Fields Hana
Routine Interrupted While Every
body Joins Hunt.
Great was the lamentation on board
the ferryboat Claudlno, on her down
tiip last week. And cause enough
the ship had lost her New Year's pig.
On her up trip last Tuesday, the
crew received the pig on board at
Knhulul a tine 200-pounder, the gift
of (he Inter-Island company. It was
to have been carefully "finished oil"
until New Year's, and then, while the
boat tied up at Kahulul waiting for
the return of the Oahu excursionists,
a great feast was to havo been the
feature today, with luaucd puaa as
the piece do resistance.
But fate otherwise decreed; for
while tho crew was busy with the
boats at Hana, last Wednesday morn
ing, his porkshlp took 'a flying leap
through an open freight port and
swam shore. All Hana turned out to
help corral the runaway, but he readi
ed the friendly shelter of the cane
fields, and now the hunt seems hope
less. It is reported that business in
Hana district lias come to a stand
still, while the pig hunt still keeps on.
