Chamber of Commerce Emphatical
ly Endorses Actions of Civic Con
vention Committee New By
By unanimous vote the chamber of
commerce, at its meeting Thursday
afternoon, endorsed fully tho work of
tho civic convention committee, ana
particularly the arrangement which
had been made by tho committee v'ih
Director General K. R. Bevins by
which ho had been paid $500 for his
services in connection with tho M?
affair. President F. F. Baldwin, who
had been chairman of the convention
"committee, brouRUt the matter up. He
stated that ho did so on account of
various malicious rumors wh'ch hud
gained circulation in regard to this
matter. Ho read from tho minutes of
tho committee tho record by which the
committee, early last July, had voted
unanimously jto employ a director ror
handling the heavy work of arranging
for tho convention, and to pay him
$500 for two and a half months of
very dlfflcult and trying work. Tho
coinmltteo had estimated that at least
$100 of this amount would be used up
by tho director in automobile tires and
upkeep, so that tho net pay for the
work would not bo at all expensive.
Tho rumors that there had been some
thing underhanded or crooked on
either Mr. Bevins' or the committee's
part, Mr. Baldwin felt should bo ex
ploded very effectually.
Tho matter was discussed at length
by various members, in which it was
brought out that tho rumors in ques
tion had doubtless started from the
fact that tile arrangement with tho
director geneial had not become
known until some time after the con
vention, and then in an indirect way.
There was no disposition apparent on
tho part of any of tho forty or more
members present, to criticize tho com
mittee, and it was apparent that tho
lesult of the discussion had been to
very thoroughly clear the atmosphere.
D. H. Caso moved that tho chamber
vote its full endorsement of tho action
of tho committee, and this being
heartily seconded, passed unanimous
ly. New By-Laws Adopted.
Tho chamber considered by sections
the draft of tho new by-laws recently
drafted by a r.peclal committee, and
with a few minor" exceptions adopted
them as read.
D. T. Fleming and W. A. Clark were
elected to membership in tho chamber.
Letters from A. A. Young of the
Young and Moana Hotels, offerhu;
Maul spaco in tho hotels for a repre
sentative of the outside islauds, vus
received, but no 'action taken. A
similar offer was received from tho
promotion committee for uso of its
headquarters. Tho promotion com
mittee also asked that a member ci
the chamber bo named to ant as repre
sentative of the promotion eoiumitteu
for Maui. This request was approved
and such represents live will bo named
The committee on auto rats and
hotel rate3, nu'-.u for further time,
which was granted.
A letter was received from tho Hilo
Board of Trade suggesting that $500
per month, should bo provided for
maintaining a representative from
Maul and Hawaii in Honolulu, and the
matter was referred to a committee.
It was suggested that "if Maul
be only asked to pay In proportion to
tho number of tourists that stop hero,
the cost will probably amount to but
a dollar or two per month.
JAPANESE CRUISERS OFF MAUI.
Two largo Japanese cruisers have
been lying off tho lco side of this is
land several days this week, together

few weeks and it seems quite evident
that a sharp lookout is being kept
by them for tho little German cruiser

Falkland Island fight in December, but

Monday Night, Cutting Out Tedi
ous Stop at Lahaina.
To have the Inter-Island steamer
Claudine make her trip from Honolulu
direct to Kahului, Instead of stopping
at Lahaina for three or four hours of
useless killing time, will be the ob
ject of efforts on the part of the Maul
Chamber of Commerce. The matter
was brought to the attention of the
Chamber at Its meeting held Thurs
day afternoon, by President Frank
Baldwin, and was unanimously endors
ed, after a general discussion. Mr.
Baldwin stated that he had discussed
the matter with L. Welnzheimer, and
had been agreeably surprised to have
a ready acquiescence to tho plan by
this Lahaina gentleman. Aside from
tho mail, Lahaina gets really little
benefit from having the Claudine stop
on her up trip. No change will be
urged for tho Claudine in her down
