Better Prices For Rubber May War
rant Resumption of Tapping Wet
Season Ruins Roselle Prospects
Planting Resumed at Kipahulu.
HANA, January 20. The Nahlku
Rubber Company has suspended oper
ations for the rresent. The Koolau
Rubber Company has shut down. The
Turner Roselle Company has quit
business for this year at least, and
practically all of the laborers at Na
hiku have been discharged. The Na
hiku store, It is stated, will close at
the end of this month.
Hana will be lonesome without her
neighbors, as a considerable portion
of the Nahlku population has already
left. Whether or not the rubber busi
ness will be resumed is not known,
although reports that the price is ad
vancing may warrant resumption of
tapping before long.
The roselle crop, on which great
hopes had been placed, was almost a
complete failure, owing to the ex
tremely wet season. Instead of 100,
000 pounds of dried fruit, as had been
Indicated, only a few thousand were
harvested. Those connected v. ith
the enterprise refuse to predict what
action may be taken in way of future
New Planting at Kipahulu.
John Fassoth and son, of Kauai,
who with William Williamson recent
ly bought the Kipahulu plantation,
were here this week to begin plant
ing for the 1917 crop of cane.
Artistic Success Was
Concert Last Week
A fair sized and very pprecfcitive
audience was that which assembled
at the Wailuku Orpheum on Friday
evening of last week on the occasion
of the concert given by Mrs. Bessie
Abbott-How land, assisted by Miss
Charlotte A. Powers, reader, and Mrs.
Elsa C. Howard, interpretative dan
cer. It was the first time that Mrs.
Howland had been hoard on Maul, and
her singing was a pleasing revelation
to everybody. She has a sweet so
prano voice under perfect control, and
of good range; and she w-as extremely
gracious In responding to numerous
encores. Her i everal selections from
"Mile. Modiste," Herbert; and "Ce
leste," Newcomb, were perhaps the
most popular of the selections she
Mrs. Howard, although not a strang
er to Maui audiences, made her usual
hit 'with her remarkably expressive
Miss Powers, also heard for the first
time here, pleased her audience with
her first reading "Story of tho Coast
Guard," and won them completely
a little later with her humorous "Coy
at the Circus" and "Mrs. Casey's
Euchre Party." MUs Powers is cer
tainly an artist in her line, and In
leaving Maui she leaves behind many
warm friends as well as admirers of

New Stunt Sprung By Wailuku Or
pheum in Race For Popular Favor
Money Lying Around Lose is New
Idea Another Carnivai Trip.
Wailuku lias a hidden money mys
tery. Somewhere in the environs of
the town are two little metal lubes
They are both alike, and both ton
tain money and certain papers. Ea ;h
tube is about six inches Ion;;, and
The tubes belong to Pharos, of the
Wailuku Orpheum. Only three per
sons in tho world know where those
little cylinders ar-; at the present time
and one of these is rharos himself.
The other two are well known citi
zens of Wailuku who were witnesses
to the hiding of '.he tubes. They are
bound by solemn promise to secrecy,
but their names will be announced at
the Orpheum performance tonight.
Mr. Tharos has hidden the tubes on
a waser that they cannot be found
for at least one month, although
everyone is welcome to try. In case
they are discovered, the finders are
welcome to keep the money tb, t '.ney
contain but Phuios wantv, the tubes,
and v, ill pay U0 in go'd fot each one
' i is lircvybt to the Orpheum to

Pharos states that the tubes are
hidden within a block of the Orrheum
and that they can be found by any
one man, woman or child who has
sufficient, detective ability.
In case, however, that Wailuku de
tective talent is lacking, and the mon
ey remains undiscovered for one full
month, the money which would have
been paid as rewards for the return
of the tubes will be turned over to
the Belgian relief fund committee.
Pharos states that there is absolutely
no strings to this contest, and that
there will be clues thrown on the pic
ture sheet every night that should
make it easy for some bright person
to find the hidden treasure. It may
be right at your own door step who
Pharos also announces a free trip
to the Mid-Pacific Carnival or $30 00
in cash, to the holder of lucky ticket
on the evening of February 17th, and
mentions the fact that every patron

"Made in Germany"
A good story comes from liana in
connection with the recent sale of
the Kipahulu plantaiton to Fassoth
and Williamson. Fassoth, so the
story goes, after looking over the
property, hustled back to' Honolulu
to close the deal with Hackfeld & Co.,
but learned from the agents that the
consent of the principals would have
to be secured from Germany. Not
withstanding the high cost of cabling
when codes could not be used, he in
sisted on this means of communica
tion. In due time, Ah Ping, manager cf
the plantation received a bill: "Cable
from Germany, $157.24." Now the Ki
pahulu manager has a wide reputa
tion for his picturesque use of Eng
lish, and only those who know htm
can appreciate what he said as he
rushed down to his engineer' waving
the bill and demanding why a "wire
rope" had been ordered from Ger
many when an American one would
have cost but a fraction of the

OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES J
PRESIDENT WILSON AND THE
Critics of the President who are
conversant with his record as execu
tive in Princeton University are very
severe In their arraignment of the
quiet way in which he seims to carry
out policies that conflict with his pub
lic utterances and In especial bitterly
assail what they call his betrayal of
civil service reform. Whatever may
be the truth of this charge so far as
it affects the mainland, it is unde
niable that in Hawaii President Wil
son Is consistently violating the spirit
of civil service reform. Slowly and
steadily he is getting rid of officials
whose faithfulness a'nd efficiency are
unquestioned and is replacing them
with men .of his own party. His
handling of judicial appointments has
been especially unjustifiable. Judges
of the greatest probity, like Messrs.
Kingsbury, De Dolt and Robinson,
whose honorable service merited
their retention and none of whom

Agricultural Company's Hamakuapo
ko Store the sum of $500 on account
of an order glen by W. R. Fatterson
against a road contract from the
County. This money of Patterson's
in the auditor's hands, has been the
subject of a lively contest on the part
of a number of Patterson's creditors
to whom he had apparently pledged
this same money.
The mandamus case, was tried last
week, as was outlined in last week's
Maui News, but decision was reserv
ed. It. is understood that the Iao
Stables Company, or the First Na
tional Bank, or both, will appeal to
the supreme court from Judge Eding's

have manifested t he slightest parti
sanship in the conduct of their offices
or in their civic life have been set
aside to make way for untried or im

they are Republicans and their suc
cessors are Democrats. The judicial
office above all others should be far
removed from suggestion of partisan
control. We cannot imagine Grover
Cleveland doing what President Wil

principles of civil service reform in

Money For Rest House
The Haleakala rest house commit
tee is preparing to let bids for the
oojistructlon of the new structure
within the next few days, probably.
The additional $1500 needed, the com
mittee expects will be raised shortly
from popular subscriptions, which are
now being solicited.
In the matter of a care-taker for
the house, the proposition is now be
ing considered of applying the $50 per
month now being subscribed to the
prolnotion committee, to the purpose.
This idea is favored by many, who
feel that Maul can best contribute
to the tourist work by this means.

The trouble appears to have risen
over a debt of $28 which Much Chee

resulted in his being pretty roughly
