On Growing. Lahaina Dinner not
Tho latest figures from Honolulu In
dicate that tho congressional party
will number ICO persons. Also the
general committee, headed by Secre
tary Thayer, Is up against a proposi
tion as to how f 10,000, appropriated
by tho legislature is going to cover all
expenses, which even now loom up to
the startling sum of $45,000. Tills
matter has not as yet been solved,
up to latest advices. However, it is
staled that no Honolulu ladles arc to
be allowed to join in tho tour of tho
islands, and that tho list of escorts
from Honolulu is to bo held down to
tho lowest possible number of official
Local plans for entertaining the
congressional party on next Thurs
day and Friday, when It will visit
Maui, arc being definitely shaped up,
and should go through without a hitch.
Chairman D. H. Case, Secretary D. C.
Lindsay, and possibly other members
of tho Maul chamber of commerce
committee, expect to go to Honolulu
In time to meet the visitors and re
turn with them. By the time they
arrive at Kahului on Thursday morn
ing, every ono in the party will have
been assigned dofiinitely to some Maul
homo or hotel for entertainment. They
will be provided with cards beari;
tho names of their hosts, and will be
taken in charge and to breaTifast at
tho homes assigned, as soon as the
ship docks. This will probably bo
about 7:30 o'clock.
To See Homesteads.
At 11 o'clock the visitors are to
leave Walluku depot by train for Hai
ku, where a sub-committee composed
of pineapplo men and homesteaders
will entertain with lunch to bo serv
ed in ono of the big new warehouses
of the American Can Company. There
will probably be a few short addresses
mado at this lunch, which is to bo
followed by an inspection of the
homestead district (weather and
roads permitting) and of tho cannery
and can making factory. At 4 o'clclk
the visitors will return to Puunene,
except those who wish to visit Halea
kala, who will proceed direct from
Haiku by automobiles.
Puunene Thursday Evening.
A special committee at Puuneno Is
arranging for an attractive program
for Thursday evening, which will in
clude some athletic exhibitions, among
which will bo a swimming rijce in
which Duke. Kahanamoku will star.
General Reception Friday Morning.
J. W. Kalua, T. D. Lyons, and D. H.
Case have been named a committee to
look after decorations vnl seats at the
court house grounds, 7ailuku, where
a general reception will ho held he
ginning at 10 o'clock Friday morning.
Judge McKay, It. A. Wadsworth, and
D. H. Case are also a committee to
arrange for tho lunch to be served in
the armory at noon.
Not a Luau at Lahaina.
The commltteo at Lahaina, which
has charge of the final features of the
entertainment, has entered a denial
that tho feed under tho banyan trees
at Lahaina, on Friday evening, is to
be a luau. "Wo do not believe that
wo should try to feed the visitors on a
purely Hawaiian menu," stated George
Freeland, of tho Lahaina commltteo,
"for the reason that few malihinis ap
predate all of tho luau delicacies. Be
hides they will got plenty of luaus
elsewhere. Wo do propose serving a
nighty fine dinner, and to include as
.any Hawaiian dishes as experience
lias shown will bo relished. But it is
a mistake to call It a luau. That
isn't our Idea at all."
Tho plan is to take the congressmen
and their wives to Lahaina about tho
middle of Friday afternoon, having
them visit Lahainaluna, and other
points of interest in tho vicinity be
fore dinner time. Following tho din
nor thero will probably ho a snort pro
gram, and tho visitors will embark for
the Big Isianu, at 10 o'ciock.

Attorney Murphy Seeks Injunction to
Stop Coming Election Makes
Sensational Allegations Bevins
On tho grounds that tho primary
election on March 13 was rendered Il
legal and Invalid by reason of certain
alleged irregularities, and that there
fore the general election to bo lmld
next Tuesday will also bo illegal, Eu
gene Murphy, democratic candidate
for county attorney, on Tuesday of
this week filed a bill for injunction in
the Second Circuit Court, seeking to
restrain County Clerk Kaao from car
rying out tho arrangements for the
election. The case was brought before
Judge Edings on Wednesday morning,
who reserved opinion on the matter
and certified the entiro question to the
Supremo Court. Tho matter Is being
handled in Honolulu before tho high
er tribunal by Lorrin Andrews and P.
L. Weaver, attorneys for Murphy.
Booths Not Screened.
Tho institution of tho action has
caused some ripple of interest among
the candidates and politicians, parti
cularly for the reason that the allega

The bill alleges that the voting
booths in the Fifth Precinct, Wniluku,
were not screened as required by law,
and that bystanders might note how
a voter was marking his ballot.

Another specification alleges that
Frank F. Baldwin, manager of tho Ha
waiian Commercial & Sugar Com
pany, "pretending to have a physl.al
disability, to-wlt, a sore hand, did call
In to assist him in marking his bal
lot in the voting booth, one William
McGarrow, (said McGarrow not being
an inspector, as .provided by law), to

McGarrow, after having marked said
ballot for said F. F. Baldwin, did work
at the said polling placo at Puunene
for the election or nomination of per

Bevins Supplied Booze.
E. II. Bevins, republican nominee
for county attorney, is accused in tho
bill of supplying largo quantities ot
liquor to numerous voters, pnrticu-
larly at Paia, and of furnishing auto
mobiles for carrying able bodied vot
ers from the place of liquor supply to
tho polls, and that he "did illegally em
ploy largo sums of money", all for
the purpose of Illegally Inducing vot
ers to vote for him.
It is not expected that tho Supreme
Court will pass upon the matter prior
to the election next Tuesday, but lhe
fact that the bill was filed prior to the
election will make the ruling of Jhe
court mandatory and annul tho elec-
tion, in case tho injunction should he
Just what object Is back of tho ac
tion of Murphy is not exactly appa
rent, since tho stopping of tho elec

seat. Frank Baldwin is on tho coast
at present. Bevins declares hlmsolf

at the idea of his having furnished
"laige quantities of liquor," and of
having spent largo amounts of money
in his campaign. Ho characterized
the matter as one of mud-sllnging.

Damago which cannot yet be accu
ately determined, but which will am
ount to many thousands of dollars,
was the result of a veritable cloud
burst which occurred in tho Hana dis
trict last Monday. In a space of less
than four hours, the official gauge at
tho Kacleku Sugar Company's mill
registered 24.30 inches of rainfall. The
total precipitation between 0 a. m. and
noon of the samo day wan 26.90.
Hana is by no means a dry district,
but novcr before has It known such a
downpour. As a result the govern
ment roads are washed out In dozens

torn up, bridges are gone, and the
caneflelds are gullied witli streams
