West Withdraws From Race as Super
visor and. George Maxwell Jumps in
Fight For Chairmanship Causes
W. Lcsllo West, who was reported
to bo In tho race Tor counly super
visor, announced this week that he
.will not run. West slates that his
friends have urged ills candidacy, but
that he finds it will bo impossible
this year to spare, the tlmo either to
rnako the fight or to personally at
tend to tho county's interests latpr,
should he De elected.
A god deal or inerest centers in
tho three cornered fight for tho chair
manship of the board. It is gener
ally believed that Kalama has a for
midable opponent in George Copp,
and the friends of Judge Kalua are
taking much comfort in this fight, on
the ground that Kalama and Copp
will defeat each other.
Although there has been a lot of
individual hustling during the past
week, among tho various candidates,
it is predicted that week after next,
when the next week's board meeting
is out of tho way, will see tho real
stumping of tho county begin.
Gcorgo Maxwell, Is a new entry in
tho race for supervisor, getting into
tho game, as ho puts it, in W. L.
West's shoes, who has withdrawn.
A good deal of speculation centers
upon Dr. Raymond's, chances. As the
Doctor says, he is virtually bound to
make the race, having been appointed
by the Governor to fill an unexpired
term. A largo number of republican
votes will no doubt go his 'oy in the
primary and also in tho election, nnd
there are a number of republicans
working hard for his election on the
theory that party politics have no
place in a county election, where tho
good of the county is all that really
should bo considered..
Dave Fleming, of Ilonolua, is be
lieved to stand good chances in his
race for supervisor, although some
profess to believe that Pall's candi
dacy from tho samo district will cut
into his strength.
Surprise Party in
Honor Popular Lady
Although she had not forgotten the
important event, Mrs. Millie B. Hair
little dreamed that more than a hun
dred of her friends had also remem
bered it, until they arrived before her
Hamakuapoko home last Tuesday
evening in a regular auto parade, with
an orchestra, refreshments, and a
shower of gifts, and took possession
of her house. The occasion was in
honor of her birthday anniversary.
and as a surprise it was a magnificent
success. It alno proved to be one of
the most thoroughly delightful parties
of the season.
Tho popular "guest" of honor was
tho recipient of many beautiful bitth
day gifts, among which was a splen
did koa table, a joint present from a
number of her friends in the com'
munlty. The Rev. A. Craig Bowdlsh
made the presentation of this gift in
most happy and appropriate manner.

In the short program which had
been arranged, Mrs. J. P. Foster and
Mr. Stanley Livingston sang a num
her of selections that were much en-
joyed. Tho balance of tho evening
was spent in dancing. In departing
tho merry party harmoniously insist
ed in declaring tho popular matron
"a jolly good fellow", which nobody
had the slightest wish to deny, and
in giving her tbrco cheers as tho auto
parade rolled away.
MURIEL ARRIVES AT HANA.

Tho money by which lh'-i extension
work is made possible, Prof Krauss
explained, is through a upocial $5000
per year federal appropriation made
to the Hawaii experiment itatlon It
is not a part of tho fund provided
for agricultural colleges In tho states
under tho Smith-Lover act, as had
been at first supposed. Maul, how
ever, only gets a portion of this mon
ey, it being necessary to spread it
through tho several outside stations
in tho territory.
Prof. Krauss i:t especially interest
ed in the possibilities of producing
various legumes In tho Islands, nad
somo of his rst work in this connec
tion will he along these lines. With
tho low price of pineapples, during
tho past year, and poor outlook for
better prices for at least seveial years
to come, there is every indication that
there will bo no lack of interest
among homesteaders and others in tho
new demonstration work.

Attorney Eugene Murphy Claims His
Reputation is Injured to Extent of
SI 0,000 by Maui Shimbun's Ver
sion of the Molokai Fish Pond Story
T. Kancko, who Is known as tho
editor and proprietor of tho recently
revived Maul Shlmbun, has been sued
n tho Second Circuit Court ofr $10,-
000 damages for flander, by Attorney
Eugene Murphy. Murphy alleges in
his complaint that tho Maul Shlmbun
published an article recently whtrh
attacked his good name and proles
slonal reputation In a manner that
nothing less than $10,000 can asunge.
Editor Kanc-ko's stumbling block
was tho story published In the Maul
News two weeks ago concerning the
legal mlxup over the ownerahip of n
fishpond lease on Molokai. Murphy,
In the interest of his client, a Japa
nese, brought suit against the agents
of another Japanese who had pur
chased the lease at sheriff's sale, for
damages, on the grounds that, In the
sale of tho pond the fish In It had not
been included. An English transla
tion of tho Shimbun's article on the
subject, Indicates that the editor did
n't stop with translating tho Maui
News' story, but took occasion to con
demn Murphy in no uncertain terms
and to warn nil Japanese against hav
ing dealings with him. The article
then naively states that tho 'Murphy
In question is the same person who
recently filed an attachment on some
pieco of printing machinery In the
Shlmbun ofllco, on account of an al

ed to fill tho position of territorial
bank examiner a nlaco created by

until now is on Maul this week
checking up the books of County Aud-
itor Wilcox and County Treasurer
Baldwin. Mr. Drummond was at Hilo
last week whero ho took a look Into
the much discussed financial system
of Hawaii county. According to Mr,
Drummond the Hawaii county books
aro now Straight with the exception
of a discrepancy of between $100 and
$200 which nono of the various aud
Itors in the past year have been able
to properly place. The amount has
accordingly been placed on a "sus
pense account" whero it will bo car
ried until possibly moro properly lO'
Mr. Drummond reports that the
Maul county books aro In good shape
In fact, to ufo his own words, 4 t'joy
could not bo better."
