Ilditor Maui News:
In answering to an article of the
last issue of the Maui News, March
uth, 1915, statins that Louis II. Sylva.
who resigned from the police force
the first of the month. is out
in the field stumping for Chas. Lake,
for County Sheriff. It is reported that
Sylva has been promised the place as
deputy sheriff in case Lake succeeds
in winning the sheriffs chair from
Clem Crowell. I admit that of hav
ing resigned from the police force and
is now out stumping for Lake, but ah-:-i)lui(
ly deny any such promises, Ilia;
is untruth. I think this is a fiee
country arid a man is free to do what
he thinks is right provided he is not
violating the laws of the Territory

Benjamin Franklin Todd sat down
on the plush seat beside bis wife of
two hours and thirty-seven niiuutes,
pulled down bis white waistcoat to fit
snugly that portion of his anatomy that
it was intended to fit, nnd peered past
Mrs. Benjamin Franklin Todd Into the
mystery of the darkening train shed.
"Huh!" he exclaimed, puffins out his
chest proudly. "The folks back home
said we couldn't get to N'York city
alone, did they? I'll show 'em. Why.
Pnusy, the worst Is over; we're on the
right train, anyway."
"They don't know how smart my
Betijy is," she averred coolngly.
"Course we'll get there!"
Beujy assumed au expression of vast
pride. Ho was bursting Into speech

"Pansy!" The shrill treble held a
note of utter horror. "I forgot the

A glance nt his watch reassured him
that the train would not leave for six
"Oh, Benjy! And it was our wed

"I'll get It It's in the lunch room,"
he declared, with importance.
"You'll get left sure," worried his
wife. "Don't go. Benjy. It'd be just
awful to get separated so soon."

husband. "If you're nervous while

away wearily. "Walt here," he threw
over his shoulder.
Benjy waited obediently, but nervous

had been pone half an hour at least be
looked at his watch. There was still a
minute to spare. He grasped the hand
rail of the last car and held on with
grim determination. At any rate the
train could not escape him.
A tall, gangling man in overalls, car
rying a lantern and hammer, passed,
regarding him curiously.
"Uey!" called Benjy. "Train fr
N'York leave on this track?" he que
ried to make conversation.
"Yep track 13."
The bridegroom shivered; he was
naturally superstitious. The next mo
ment he caught sight of the boy com
ing through the gate with the precious
umbrella In his band.
"Here y'are!" said the boy, holding
out the umbrella, ferrule first.
Mr. Todd offered a dime, which was
scornfully rejected, augmented the fee
with a quarter and turned to fly, com
ing into violent contact with his gan

"To catch my train!" gasped Beujy.
"Too late; it's went," said the tall
The belated bridegroom's hands shot
up and clutched the reassuring brass

shrilled. "I've got aholt of it!"
With the contemptuous calmness of
his class, the railroad man pulled Ben
jamin Franklin to one side and point
ed. The car bad been left
"My wife! My wife!" shrieked the
youthful husband wildly. "Oh, what
will I do? I've lost my wife!"
"Come with me."
They raced across tracks, through
car vestibules, up n flight of iron 6tairs
and burst into a large room where a
myriad of telegraph Instruments chat
tered their unintelligible gossip all at
To Benjy they seemed to mock his
plight In a gay abandon of meaning
less sound. Tho overalls came to a
halt beside a young man with a green
shade over his eyes, whose fingers
rested Idly for a fraction of a second
on his key.
"Herb, this kid's lost his mother
I mean his wife. She went out on 44.
Shoot a message to Clancy, will yer?
Au' see 'f you c'n get 'em together
"All right; catch Mm at Brlghtslde,"
Herb complied. "Name? Description?"
he barked, glancing at Benjy.

guide. "Be about five minutes before

Benjy walked out of the stuffy room
In a daze, the tail man going off about
his own affairs with the promise that
he would return shortly.
The crisp air cleared Mr. Todd's
brain somewhat bringing h sharp reali
zation of his unfortunate predicament

but would he have the nerve to con

stamped one tiny foot in impotent an

"Time for yer answer," he remarked.
Again they confronted Herb.
"Got Clancy all right He says thre
is no such party on the train." Ilerb
grabbed n pencil and became intensely
interested in the dot nnd dashed re
marks of a man down the line.
"I've lost her! I've lost her!"
Beujy's wall drowned momentarily
the brassy voices of the sounders.
A thick set, iron gray man strode
into the room with nn authoritative
He glanced sharply nt the tiny fig

"What's the trouble?" be rasped.
"My wife!" choked Benjy. "She's

"Here! Start that all over again," i
cut in the thick set man bruskly.
Painfully Beujy retraced his declam-1

The human interest element of his ,

Two men In uniform appeared and
fairly groveled before their irate chief. I
