Activity among the politicians dur

The Case of Case vs Bevins.
E. R. Bevins returned on Thursday
from a strenuous tour around this is
land and to Molokai. Ho professes to
feel welL satisfied with the outlook lor
crowding Dan Case out of tho county
attorney's place on the ticket at the
primaries next month. Bevins is mak
ing his principal plea for preferment
on tho promlso that he will devote his
entire time to tho office, and that his
deputy, If he has ono .will have noth
ing to do unless he himself Is unable
to handle the work.
Case, who has not done much active
campaigning thus far, dropped off at
Molokai on Tuesday on his way back
from a business trip to Honolulu, close
on Bevins' heels. Beforo leaving for
Honolulu last week, Mr. Caho stated
that his claims for re-election are to
ho based solely on what he has done.
"I shall refer my hearers in any
talking I may do," said Mr. Case, "to
those who believe in me, for opinions
as to my good qualities, and will ask
them to consult my opponents as to
my shortcomings. I shall hope to ho
Judged not by what others say of me,
but by whatMaul people know of me.
And people of Maul have had plenty
of opportunity to know both the good
and tho bad things in my make-up.
"I haven't made any formal an
nouncements or any promises, but I
certainly am in tho race and will do
my best to succeed tho present in
cumbent in tho County Attorney's of
fice. I shall not say anything against
others in this campaign. If I can't
bo elected without saying ill of others
I do not care to get tho office."

Timely Rains Brought Cane to Front
and Outlook For 1915 Harvest is
Bright Last Year's Crop Paid
Dividends of $480,000.
Thete Is good prospect that 191C
will prove to bo tho banner year for
tho Pioneer Mill Company, Judging
from Manager Weinzhelmer's report
made to the stockholders of tho com
pany at the annual meeting held last
Wednesday in Honolulu. Mr. Weinz
helmer's first estimate was 27,000 tons
but ho says that owing to the timely
and abundant rains of tho past sum
mer, he Is confident of at least 2000
tons moro than this. This means not
less than 29,000 tons, and the planta
tion's bumper year (1911) had but
29,184 tons to its credit.
Tho crop of 28,301.625 tons harvest
ed last year, enabled $480,000 In divi
dends, or 12 per cent, to bo paid, with
a profit balance of ?127,598.38 carried
Manager Welnzholmer states that
the harvesting of this year's crop is
progressing very satisfactorily, and
moro efficiently than horetorforc ow
ing to the success of various improve
ments previously inagurated. The
juices are better than usual also. Ex
periments arc to bo made In burning
tho molasses for its potash contents,
which it is expected will piovo moro
profitable than to ship it to tho coast
as is being done at present.
The old officers and dlrecotrs of tho
company were reelected as follows: J.
F. Hackfeld, president; O. P. It. Isen
berg, first vice-president; H. Focko,
second vice-president; Georg Itodlek,
treasurer; J. F. C. Hageus, secretary;
A, Haneberg, auditor.
The abovo officers, excepting tho
auditor, with J. A. McCandless and P.
Muhlendorf, constitute the board of

and if the success which attended it
hero Is any criterion it will ho ono
of tho big hits of tho season when it
Is shown in Honolulu. Baby Alma In
song and dance added to tho already
big program on Thursday evening, In
her usual delightful manner.
As a result of its enterprise tho so
ciety realized something like $100. A
large amount of candy and other re
fershments weio sold.
The success, of tho undo: taking was
duo largely to the hard work of the
committee which had It in charge.

Infantry and Japanese Good Re
ports Concerning Maui Players.
The All-Maul baseball team which
played In the Carnival scries In Hono
lulu, failed to lift the cup offered, but
made a noble try just the same. Thurs

There is just a chance that the Chi
nese and tho All-Oahus, which have
two more games to play, will lose and
make tho scores a tie. As it is, Maui
which had but three games to play,
would have to win them all fn order
to havo been rfiure of tho cup.
In an extra game played with the
25th Infantiy on last Tuesday, the
soldiers turned the tables on Maui by
exactly the same scoro that they lost
in tho Satui day's game 8 to 1..
Maul visitors to the Carnival bring
back most excellent reports concern
ing tho manner in which tho Maul
players conducted themselves Both on
and off the diamond, and declare that
Maui won a great deal by tho series,
even if she did not win tho trophy.

fined $20 in Judgo Conradfs court
tfiis week, for assault and battery on
a Korean. Tho assault consisted in
ejecting the complaining witness from

strong to warrant prosecution on that
charge. Ono Matsumara, arrested for
being a party to tho assault, received
a suspended sentence.
