MayBut Wailluku is Short Han
ded Bal and Meyer May Not

at an enthusiastic meeting of the
Maul Athletic Association, held Tues
day evening ot this week hi the Town
Hall. There are to bo three teams
In the race for the Island honors this
year Paia, Puunenc, and Walluku.
From all Indications the season Is to
be one of the best that Maui has ever
Much satisfaction is felt over the
coming in this year of Paia with a
team, after missing last year. J. M.
Medeiros will he manager of this or
ganization, and he has already booked
some classy players. Taschoal will
again have tho management of the
strong Puunene team, while George
Cummings has undertaken to manage
the Walluku bunch.
In-as-much as tho so-called Walluku
taem will be made up of players from
Walkapu and Waihce, it lias been pro
posed to call this team the Valley
Isles, and some are in favor of call
ing it the Waikapus. This matter,
Manager Cummings rays he will lea-'e
largely up to the players themselves
It is probable that neither Dal nor
Meyer will play this season on any
team. Following the meeting of the
Athletic Association, Bal stated that
he will not play on the Walluku team,
and friends of Meyer declare that ho
also will refuse to play. Tho Asso
ciation went on record to tho effect
that players must play with the teams
of their own districts, which will con
sequently prevent Bal and Meyer from
playing at all. It W hoped by many
that these two good men will recon
sider their decision, but Manager
Cummings stales that he will have a
r'teamhi allCVdnts (hat will make a
good showing for itself Ho hap alo
been assured that ho will have the full
backing of the association, and is con
fident that the public will support his
aggregation to tho last game.

Have Outside Members
Plan To Give Places On Board to Re
presentatives of All Islands Work
In Territory Ilcsolved Upon.
Ilv a resolution adopted by theHa-
wall Promotion Committee last week,
It will be the aim of that body in the
future to devote more of its energies
towards encouraging tourist travel
among tho various islands than It lias
done in tho past. The committee also
discussed the matter of providing for
the appointment ot a member on the
committee from each of tho islands.
The resolution in question is as fol
lows: "Resolved, That the time has ar
llved when tho promotion committee
should actively, as an integral part of
its duties, take up tho matter of care
and entertainment of travelers, In the
ascertaining what there is to bo seen
In tho Islands, how to sec It and tho
cost thereof, and by organizing and
promoting travel among and through
In tho matter ot having tho outside
Islands directly represented on the
body, It will be necessary that the Ho
nolulu Chamber of Commerce amend
its by-laws, as the promotion work Is
at present handled entirely by a com
mittee of the general Honolulu organ
ization. L. A. Thurston, one of tho
new members of the committee urged
that this action be taken, and it will
doubtless bo brought to tho attention
of tho chamber in tho near luture-.
Acting Secretary Taylor, in a letter
to tho Maul News, also advises that
H. Gooding Field, another new mem
ber of the committee, has been named
chairman of a nub-committee on Inter-Island
affairs, which will work to
keep tho different parts of tho terri
tory pulling together harmoniously for
the advancement of tourist travel.

abling bill on Wednesdcy, by tho leg
islature, has made it possiblo to cor
rect the oversight of tho Issuing of
the proclamation, which under the
law should have been dono not less
than GO days before the election. The
new law makes 20 days sufficient time.
It is generally believed on Maul
that enabling acts will havo to be also
passed for Hawaii and Kauai, in order
to make legal tho proclamations of
those counties on the same matter.
Tho Hawaii supervisors issued their
proclamation under date of March 13,
which is but 51 days before tho elec

After more than a week, the-lll-fated
submarine F-4, still lies
on the bottom of the ocean off
Honolulu harbor with her crew
of 21 men. The lost vessel was
quickly located by means of the
oil and air bubbles that arose
from her, and later by paint
brought up on the dray chains,
and by a portion of the brass
work torn off and recovered by
one of the grappling hook.s.
But It has thuti far been Im
possible to raise the craft, nil
after the most strenuous efforts,
until all hope of saving the
crew has been abandoned, the
proposition has settled down to
simply one of salving the hull
and burying the bodies impris
oned in it.

apparatus, and will probably be
here within ten days to take up
the work, for which local equip
ment proved Inadequate.
