By a score of 6 to 3?i, the Maul polo
team on Thursday Uefeated the Oahu
players, in ono of the best games over

field Was In splendid shape and faster
than usual. There was plenty of snap
to the playing, and the big crowd of
Maul enthusiasts present were kept
on needle points of excitement from
start to finish.
With the exception of a nasty fall,
sustained by Collins When his pony
stumbled, there were no accidents to
mar the day's sport. Collins was badly
shaken up and his leg was hurt, but

Tax Money Received Helps Out a Lot
Registered Warrants Will Take
Half School Fund and Improve
ment Fund in Fair Condition.
Tho county trcasuiy was this week
replenished to the extent of about
$125,000, this being tho county's
share of the taxes collected by tho
territory for tho first half of tho year.
While this is almost double the re
ceipts of last ear from the first col
lections, Auditor Wilcox states that
tho redemption of some $64,000 in reg
istered warrants will knock a very
big hole In tho general fund which
now amounts to $83,000. What re
mains after paying these outstanding
warrants, will be about enough to run
the county ono month.
This does not mean that tho coun
ty Is broke, but simply that a lot of
money is tied up in various specific
funds. For Instance, of tho $125,000
received, $15,000 goes into the road
fund, and some $20,000 into tho per
manent improvement fund. Tho coun
ty besides this has a school fund bal
ance of about $28,000, and next month
will receive some $20,000 revenue
from reissuance of licenses of var
ious kinds. With balances carried
over from last year tho county road
fund amounts now to about $22,000
and the permanent improvement fund
is approximately $33,000.
