first planned, itinerary for the con
gressional party on Maul has been re
versed, according to the latent ar
rangements made by tho Maul cham
ber of commerce committee having
the matter In hand. Tho general pro
gram as It now stands has been gone
over very carefully at a number of
meetings held by the committee, and

Manager Baldwin Makes Optimistic
Report to Shareholders Half Mil
lion Being Spent on Improvements
In Prcpration For Free Sugar.
If weather conditions remain as fav
orable for the next year as Ihcy have
been for tho past, the Hawaiian Com
mercial & Sugar Company will har
vest its banner, crop In 191G, accord
ing to Manager Prank P. Baldwin's
report to tho shareholders of the com
pany at the annual meeting held re
cently In San Francisco. This will
mean that a crop of over G0.000 tons
Is looked for next year, the 1912 crop
mining just a trllle abovo this figure.
Manager Baldwin alto predicted a
yield of 5G.000 tons for this season's
crop. The yield last year was 06,500
Because free sugar is apparently a
certainty In about a year, Mr. Baldwin
states that the company will not be
then In a position to spend money for
permanent improvements, and there
fore decided to spend nearly half a
million for this purpose this year.
Many of these improvements are now
under way, including extensive elec
tric installation In mill, cane shred
ders for mill, new camps, an elaborate
filtering plant for domestic water sup
ply of camps and a new Kahulul store.
Mr. Baldwin pays a high tribute to
tho late A. J. McLeod. for years head
luna of tho Klhei division; and of the
personnel of tho employees of the
company he says. "It Is a pleasure to
say that the loyalty to the company
of the responsible men of tho various
departments played no small part In
the results obtained."
Profit on sugar and sundry earn
ings for last year, $1,347,368.23; divi
dends paid, 11,240,000; balance for
ward, ?107,?C8.23. Adding this profit
and loss balance to that standing at
the beginning of the year, and
2422.50 as enhanced value of live
stock, the balance on December 31
was brought up to $610,893.54.
Take French Leave
Steamer Kaifuku Mam Loses Five of
Crew But Four Have Uosn Captured
Heavy Penalty foi Ship.
The desettion of five members of,
the crew of tho Japanese steamer
Kaifufu Marti, which arrived last Sat
iirday at Kahulul with a cargo of brick
and cement for tho Kahulul Railroad
Company, has been the cause of much
anxiety on tho part of Captain Kuwa
bara. Under the law tho ship is liable
for a fine of $500 for each man thus
escaping, so that unusual efforts were
made to locate the deserters. Up to
last night four of tho five had been
rounded up, and the polico force is
keeping up tho search for the fifth
Ono of tho crew swam ashore Sun-
day night, and he is the man still
missing. Tho four others mado thel
escape on Monday night, two of them
stealing a small boat on reaching
shore, and the other two swimming to
breakwater, which is but a few rods
from where tho ship Is- anchored. Ono
, man voluntarily surrendered Tuesday
morning, another was located by Sher
Iff Crowell in Camp 2, tho same after
noon, and tho other two captured
were found in Camp 8, near Ktheljon
Tho fact that most of tho deserters
are natives of Kogoshlma or Tokushl
ma provinces, Japan, and havo
slightly different dialect from most of
the Japanese in Maul, mado It more
difficult for them to obtain assistance
in hiding, than might otherwise have
been the case.

Ball Games at Paia
May be Impossible
Owing to Fact Admission Fee Cannot be
Charged Subscription May be
Raised for Free Gaines Sueda
Said to be Going to Kauai.
An unexpected hitch has developed
In tho nlans of tho Maui senior lea
gue's baseball series, tho outcome of
which Is still a matter of doubt. The
nllikia arose over the discovery that
It will probably oe Impossible to
charco an ndnnnulon lo any of the
gimes which may be played on the
Paia club's grounds. It seems that
in donating the grounds, the late H.
P. Baldwin provided that no admis
sion feo should bo charged to events
that might bo held on It. Hence the
difficulty, for there is no other suit
able place In Paia for a ball grme.
Tho opening gamo or the series va&
to havo been played on Paia ground.!
a week from tomorrow, but the sche
dule will probably be changed and the
gamo played at wailuku. In the mean
time tho officers of tho Athletic Asso
elation are trying to solve tho prob
lem so that Paia will not bo cut out
of all games during tho season. It Is
estimated that tho expenses of each
game played at Paia will not bo less
than $30. It is believed by some that
It may bo possible to raise this
amount or more, by subscription
which will enable tho Paia games to
bo played without an entrance fee,
Paia, it is agreed, should be a splcn
did center for the national sport, if It
can onco bo pioperly Introduced.
Sueda "Bought" By Kauai.
But Paia, or no Paia, thero Is going
to be somo good baseball on Maul
this summer, unless all Indications
fall. Manager Cummlngs, of tho Ha-
walis, declares that he has a bunch of
youngsters that will make a sensa
tlon beforo tho season is over. Pas-
schoal, of the Puunoncs, also feels
hopeful, though ho is mourning tho
prospect of losing" Sueda, his star
twirler, who, It Is reported, has been
"bought" by Kauai. In other words.
Sueda has been offered so much bet
ter job on the Garden Island through
the efforts of tho Kauai fans, that he
will probably accept.
WILL ORGANIZE CHORAL
Harry Washburn Baldwin Is making
arrangements for starting a singing
class In Watluku. He believes tho out
look Is very good for a strong choral
organization here, which ho plans lat
er to combine with, tho Paia choral
society In tho production of some light
opera or other musical event.

great confidence that tho reapportion

MUSIC CLUB NEXT WEDNESDAY,
Was Elected Supervisor Naki
Must Drop Out Campaign Now
On But Lacks Ginger.
David T. Fleming, who received a
majority of the votes cast for co,unty
supervisor at the primary election last
month, is duly elected through that
fact, according to a decision or me
Supremo' Court Handed down last
week Incidentally tho oinlon sus
tains the stand of County Clerk Kaac
in rffusingi to place tixc name ot
Flemlne and other candidates receiv
ing the majority vote hi all votes
cast at tho primary, on Ahc ballot for
tho general election to lie held May 4.
It ls also In accordance with the
opinion of County KttArney Case, on
whose recommendalldu Kaao acted.
Tho case on whloh the supreme
Court acted was thar of Arthur Aklna,
ho was one of tho three republican
andidales from west Hawaii receiv
ing tho highest number of votes In
the primary election. However, Julian
R. Yales, a Home Rule candidate, re
ceived a majority of all the ballots
cast and was declared by the county
clerk elected. The clerk also refused
to put Aklna's namo on the ballot for
the general election, ho being tho
lowest of tho three republican candi
dates, and one of the three-places be
ing filled by Yates' election. Akina
thrieupon carried the matter Into the
courts for decision.
Cuts Out Naki.
The Supreme Court not only speci
fically upholds the primary law elec
tion, but holds that where one or
more supervisors in a, district are
thus elected, the general ballot shall
call fop tho election of only such num
ber of supervisors as remain unelect-
ed, and that In case of an excess n' 1 i
her of candidates nominated, the low
men shall bo dropped.
Under this decision the Maul coun
ty ballot will contain all told but nine
names ,and tho only contest will be
for the supervisorial positions and
the county attorney's office. S. E. Ka-
lama's namo will bo on the ballot as
topubllcan candidate for chairman of
tho board, though he has no opponent.
Drummond, Pall, and Uahlnui, repub
licans, will bo lined up against Burns,
Cokett and Raymond, democrats, for
supervisors. Naki, tho low democratic
candidate is eliminated. Bevlns, who
failed by 7 votes of having a majority
of tho votes cast in tho primary, for
county attorney, will bo up ar,ain with
Murphy as hi3 democratic opponent.
Under the Supreme Court ruling, be
sides Fleming, Crowell is elected sher
iff; Kaao, clerk; Wilcox, auditor; and
L. M. Baldwin, treasurer.
Campaign is Dull.
Theio-Isn't much ginger In tho pres
ent campaign, which opened this week
as the voters seem to havojbeen ex
hausted by the primary strenuoslty,
uevins, i'aii, uaiiinui ana Drummond
spent the week working through the
nana district through Kcanae, Nam
ku, Hana, Kjpahulu, and Kaupo. Tbey
wore assisted for a fow days at Hana
by Dave Fleming, who ran around in
his motor boat to lend a hand.
Dr. Raymond started hlr, active
campaign last week with a speech 'at
Waihee on tho 15th, Olowalu, on tho
JGth, leaving lor Molokal last Satur
day whero ho has been most of this
week. Ho Is accompanied by County
Clerk Kaao, who has been acting as
hjs interpreter and incidentally thank
ing tho voters for his own election.
Raymond is said to ibe making
strong campaign on his announced
platform of efficiency, and his record
of tho past year. Although ho Is a
democrat he has tho support of no
smnll number of Independent renunii
can voters. It Is very certain that
Raymond Is a strong candidate.
