Everything is set for tho big races

Honolulu people from attending, l.nt
Indications are that a very large crowd
of Maui people from every part of
tho island will be present. Tho rea

Wild Man of Hana
Captured This Week
Demented Portuguese Who Had Been
Missing for Five Months, Finally
Caught Appearance Alarming.
A wild man, of most fearsomo ap
pearance, with a great ragged beard
and a mano of hair falling about bis
shoulders, and with but a few shreds
of rags to cover his nakedness, was
the substanco of tho description fur
nished by an excited and frightened
Filipino, at Hana, last Wednesday
evening. The Filipino had been living
on tho Hamoa homestead of Mary
Ann Cabral, a fow miles from the
town of Hana. Ho admitted that ho
had left tho placo in a hurry, and no
persuasion was equal to getting him
to go back.
A searching party was organized by
Deputy Sheriff E. J. SHva and after
scouring the mountains back of Hana
for a day and a half, tho "wild man"
was finally located and captured. Ho
proved to bo Manuel Hendrlck, a Por
tuguese stono mason of Hana, who has
been missing for tho past five months.
Ho Is undoubtedly demented, but ap
parently only mildly so.
After being caught, ho accompanied
tho searchers back to Hana, and talk
ed quite rationally of his experiences.
Hurlng all the time he has been away,
ho has lived high on tho mountain
side, subsisting on wild bannnas and
other fruits, somo wild hogs, and ns
he claims, ono or two wild steers,
which claims ho was able to kill with
a hatchet and knife which ho had w'.th
him. The frequent mysterious disap
pearance of provisions from dwellings
on the low lands in recent months.
may also doubtlessly be safely laid
at his door. Ho was ongagod in de
vourlng a pot of half cooked rice at
Hamoa, -when discovered by tho FI,I
Sheriff Sllva's searchers found no
less than seven thatched huts which
Hendrlck had built for shelter, in a
range extending from Nahlku to Kipa
hulu. Hendrlck, who was formerly an
expert water man for tho Klpaluilu
plantation, prohauly knows tho mown
tains better than almost any per-on in
tho Island, which accounts for his be
ing ablo to livo as ho has for almost
half a year.

Big Pilikia for
Contention That Bail Money Collected
By Police is Illegal Goes to Su
On the grounds that tho police have
no right to require and accept bail
money from persons arrested, and that
therefore the forfeiture of such money
to tho county is illegal, Attorney E.
It. Bevlns has appealed a tent caso
to the Supremo Court from a dei-Ulon
of District Magistrate McKay. Should
the higher court reverse the district
court in this matter, there will bo
plenty of pilikia started, for In this
county at least, tho practice of ac
cepting cash bail by tho police de
partment is ono of long standing.
Tho caso on which tho matter will
bo tested, was that of ono Pallklku,
who had forfeited ?30 deposited by
him when arrested on an adultery
charge. Through Covins, ho Is now
bringing suit for tho recovery of this
money. Tho caso was tried beforo
Judge McKay last Saturday.
Scarcely a week passes that from
fifty to soveral hundred dollars aro not
forfeited by gamblers and other of
fenders, who aro arrested by tho po
lice, put up ?5 or ?10 witli tho police
as surety for their appcaran.ro in
court, and then never appear. Theso
cases aro then ordinarily dropped.
Plantation Men Meet
That tho Maul plantations will do
overything in their power to carry
out to the letter tho provisions of the
new Workmen's Compensation Law,
was tho assurance that tho Maui In'
dustrlal Accident Board received at a
meeting held last Tuesday, at which
wero present tho managers of tho
principal sugar properties of tho is'
land. They wero: F. F. Baldwin, Ha
wallan Commercial & Sugar Com
pany: L. Welnzholmcr, Pioneer Mill;
H. B. Pcnhallow, Wailuku Sugar: Har
old nice, Maui Agricultural; Alex Val
entlno, Olowalu: and William Walsh,
Tho meeting was really an exchange
of ideas in the study of tho new act,
and It was very evident that tho prln
ciplo of tho measure meets with geiie
ral approval. It was salted I um
ber of tho plantation men, howovor,
that tho requirements of tho act in tho
matter of compensation aro less than
ordlnarUy paid at present.

Several petitions were received from
Molokal protesting against the action
of the old board at its last melini;,
in oruenng tno discharge of H. It.
Hitchcock, as district overseer of Mo
lokal. The matter was discussed at
length and finally resulted in a com
mittee consisting of Kalama, Drum
mond, and Pall being appointed to
visit .Molokal and investigate tho diar
ies against tho overseer. It Is clnirrcd
that tho troublo Is duo to factional
discords across tho channel, and that
tlic allegations that Hitchcock has
been using county teed for his own
and his friends' horses, and otherwise
ahuslng the trust ho holds, are not
founded on facts.
Fish Market Investigation.
Because Sanitary Inspector Osmers
of tho board of health will not issue a
certificate until tho Wailuku fish ivar
ket Is screened from flies, and conse
quently tho vendors cannot obtain a
renewal of their licenses, tho board Is
looking into this matter.
Tho regular meeting of tho board
for this month Is to bo held next Wednesday.
