WAILUKU, MAUI, T. II., SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1915.
Harbor Board Hogs All Money In
Sight Governor Says Maui Must
Go Slow War Scare Makes Bond
Tho Maul Loan Fund Commission,
under tho direction of which somo
quarter of a million dollars of terri
torial loan money is to be spent, has
called a meeting of the Haiku Farm
ers Association and others interested
for 2 o'clock next Wednesday after
noon, at tho Kulaha schoot house. Thr
commissioners will get tho ideas of
tho people of the district as to the
spending of tho $35,000 appropriated
for road Improvements in that sec
tion, but as to when they can get
down to actual work on thi3 or any
other of the number of Maui projects,
tho Commissioners' have no idea.
What they do know is that there Is
not ono cent at present available. Also
that there will be none available until
tho Territory can dispose of another
batch of bonds.
This knowledge camo to tho mem
bers of tho board as a big surprise,
as they had been given to understand
" that at least a respectable portion of
tho money was waiting in the treas
ury vaults for them to spend. AIbo
they have just been told by Treas
urer McCarthy that the sinking of tho
Lusltania has so upset tho financial
world, that it is not at all certain when
the half million dollars of unsold
bonds can be marketed.
Governor Says "Go Slow."
In reply to a letter of the board,
Treasurer McCarthy says in part:
"In tho first place, tho Governor
wishes me to ask. you to go a little
slow for a while.
iWo have in tho treasury at the
present time round figures nine hun
dred twenty thousand dollars ($920,
000) loan funds. Wo havo five hun
dred thousand dollars ($500,000) of
Of the money now on hand tho plans
and specifications are almost ready
and tho Board of Harbor Commission
ers expect to call for tenders on pro
positions calling for six hundred thirty
thousand dollars $030,000). They have
given out contracts amounting to one
hundred sixty-five thousand dollars
($1G5,000) in addition to above, mak
ing a total of seven hundred ninety
five thousand dollars ($795,000.) There
has been allotted for territorial prison
one hundred fifty thousand dollars
($150,000) making a grand total of
nine hundred forty-five thousand "dol
lars ($915,000), or twenty-flvo thou
sand ($25,000) above (he amount on
"Up to tho time o tho sinking of
tho Lusltania, tho money market was
easy, tho banks all over tho country
having largo amounts of money on
hand, and interest rates wero low, so
we felt that it was advisable to hold
tho balance of our bonds a little long
er, with tho Idea of realizing a larger
premium from them. Tho Lusltania
affair has somewhat upset our calcula
tions, however; tho banks still have
an abundance of money, but very
body wishes to hold on to what they
have until tho situation clears up
"Tho Governor, before his departure
for tho mainla'nd on Juno 2nd, will
authorize mo to dispose of tho bal
ance of tho bonds, if I can do so, in
tho best interests of tho Terrltoty.
"Until these bonds are sold you will
havo to pursuo tho Governor's advice
given at tho commencement of this
letter, i.o., "go slow".
"I am in hopes th.it wo will bo able
to dispose of tho bonds satisfactorily
at an early date, in which event your
projects can bo taken up."
In caso buyers can bo found for tho
bonds at tho rate of tho last sale, or
better (10 cents premium per $1000),
tho last $500,000 may bo disposed of
without advertising; otherwise tend
ers will have to bo called for, with
considerable delay inevitable.
Hope of getting a good start on tho
Kula reservoir, Wailuku waterworks,
various road projects, etc., before the
wet season starts in must largely be
ACCIDENT THEORY ACCEPTED.
The police department has practical
ly come to the conclusion that tho
mysterious death of Mrs. Charles Ako,

man, who has been held on suspicion,
will probably bo released. Tho theory
-now is that the unfortunato woman
w'as kicked by her horso.

the Sunnysido grounds, and will begin

Frank Baldwin and other Maul en
thusiasts Who have been working for
somo time to get a visit from the
Oahu players, finally succeeded last
week. The game promises to bo of
more than ordinary interest, moreover,
for tho reason that the Oahu team is
stronger than it was last season by
the addition of Walter Dillingham.
Also the Oahu team has been having
a largo amount of practise this year,
and their mounts are said to be in
excellent condition. Tho team which
will bo made up of Walter Dillingham,

thur Iticc, will arrive by next Wednes
day's Mauna Kea. Bob Shlnglo will
also come, and may also play.

ponies here already.
On next Friday morning, the day af
ter the game, the visiting players, ac
companied by their Maul hosts, will
form a round-the-island party, going
through tho Crater, and returning by
way of the 'ditch trail. Several days
will be spent on this ride.

much claimed account of W. It. Pat
terson. Tho County owed Patterson
somo $600 on a road contract. Trie
Maul Agricultural Company held an
order on the County for $500 of this
amount. The Iao Stables, First Na
tional Bank of Wailuku, and a num
ber of other creditors also sought to
get a share of tho money. Following
Judgo Edings' mandamus order, the
Auditor was restrained at first from
carrying it out by an injunction issued
by Judgo Stuart of tho Honolulu cir
Eugene Murphy, who represents the
Iao Stables was on Thursday denied
a motion to intervene, and announced
ho will take tho matter to tho Su
premo Court. E. It. Bevins represent

Splendid Structure Which Will Afford
Much Comfort to Visitors Not Yet
Furnished Transportation Made
The new Haleakala rest house has
been completed. Contractor Foss
formally turned the job over to Hugh
Howell, representing the rest house
committee, on last Monday. As yet
tno nouse lias no furnishings what
ever, but tho comniltten Is nlnnnlno
to supply what is needed In this lino,
after it has cast up and finds just
wnero it stands financially. It Is
Stated that the work nnst n cnnrl ilnnJ
more than was anticipated owing
cnieuy to cost oi getting materials to
ino top or tno mountain.
But tho rest house itself is declar
ed to be all and more than was ex
pected. It is a solid masonry build
ing from floor to roof, with steel doors
and window casings, and heavy obser
vation windows protected by steel
shutters. Another feature of note is
a 3000-gallon concrete tank, complete
ly covered, receiving water from the
roof and carried into the hou.;c by pip
ing. The tank 13 of the hy-rlb base
construction, of like character to the
building. The actual construction was
in charge of J. C. Correa, of Hono
lulu, an expert mason and concrete
man, sent over by tho Honolulu Iron
Works, which is agent for the system
of building. Mr. Correa returned to
Honolulu this week.
The total cost of tho building will
probably be near $3000.

No Discrimination Against Honolulu
Horse Ever Thought of Declares
Racing Committee Outlook for
Tho Fourth of July falling on Sun
day this year, Maul's big race meet
and other celebrations will bo held
on Saturday, July 3.
Everything looks bright for tho
most successful day of sport that
Maul has over had, and that is saying
a great ueai. The executive commit
tee reports that there aro entries
enough in sight to insure this right
now, ana a number more aro expected,
Although the executive committee
has had no complaints from Honolulu
or otner parts or the Territory, ex
cept a report in a Honolulu naner to
the effect that Honolulu horsemen do
no understand tho handicap announc
ed in the free-for-all trottinir and u.ic
ing event, It has taken tho matter up
with Tom Hollinger, owner of Wel
come Boy, tho star pacer, and believe
they havo cleared the misunderstand'
ing, it such ever existed.
The Honolulu writer assumed to be.
Hove that Welcomo Boy was to bo
asked to glvo a handicap ot Denervo,
and also that but ono heat was to be
raced. Both assumptions aro wrong.
As explained by the committee, the
idea of a handicap was to enable El
Oro, tho Hilo horse, Maul, and possi
bly A. L. Case's roadster, all of tho
2:15 class to enter in this event, in
asmuch as the 2:15 race had to bo
abandoned this year. There never
was any idea of handicapping either
Denervo or Welcome Boy against the
other. Both are scratch horses in nny
ovtnt, and tho real race Is expected
to be between those two.
In tho second place, no dno ever
suggested that the free-for-all was to
bo a one heat race. It is in fact best
3 out of 5 heats. The purse is $500.
"I do not believe that Hollinger be
lieved any of tho stuff published about
this race," declared Louis von Temp-
sky, chairman of tho executive com
mittee. "We havo written him, how
ever, and also have written tho -Advertiser
for tho sake ot putting It
straight. The record of tho Maul Rac
ing Association is tho best assurance
for horsemen in a thing like this."
Bothers Wine Makers
Supreme Court Hay Have to Decide
In Any Event License will Cost High
New Federal Tax'Will Also llur
Whether or npt the Kaupakalua
Wine & Liquor Company can be grant
ed a license by which It can continue
to manufacture wine, is a matter that
Is causing considerable concern to
thoso Interested, including tho mem
bers of the Board of License Commis
sioners. As previously reported In
tho Maul News, the last legislature
amended tho law relating to tho man
ufacture of wine, but adding a clauso
that not more than 500 gallons may be
sold in any ono year, under tho license
feo of $5 per year. However, the
act has been rendered ambiguous, as
f.ome persons aro inclined to bellpve
that it will prevent manufact'irers of
over this amount from disposing of
their product at all in oxcess of this
amourt For this reason, it Is en
tirely probablo that tho matter will
bo submitted to the Supremo Court for
decision on an agreed statement of-
It ia believed by somo of tho mem
bers of tho license board, however,
that tho Kaupakalua wine company
will be able to continue doing business
upon taking out a regular wholesalers
license, costing $1000 per year. This
company makes between CO.OOO and
80,000 gallons of wine per year.
Another cloud on the future of tho
wlno business is found in an added
federal tax on brandy used In making
wine, of $1.10 a gallon, which goes in
to effect after this calendar year. It
Is claimed by somo that this burden
will practically put tho wlno business
of tho United States out of business.
Passenger Rates Boosted
Beginning Juno 1, all tho passen
ger lines between tho Islands and tho
mainland, havo abolished tho reduced
round trip rate. Tho full ono way
rato now applies under all circums
tances, and means that teachers and
others spending their vacations on he
mainland will havo to pay from $15 to
$30 more than heretoforo for their
transportation. Poor business is given
as tho reason for tho Increase in rates.
