At the present time tho outlook for
Maui is bright, although Oahu i3 a
good deal stronger than she was last
year, through having Walter Dilling
ham back in the game. Maul won
every game played last season, with

Anti Saloon Leader
Scores Maui Board
Dr. Wadman Makes Scries of Surpris
ing Statements and Deductions
Says Wc Had Drunken Race Meet.
Tho following rather surprising at
tack of tho new Maui license board,
from the pen of Dr. J. W. Wadman,
superintendent of tho Anti-Saloon
League, appeared ns a communlpiillon
to tho Honolulu Star-Bulletin in last
Tuesday's issue. Because of its gen
eral interest to Maui people, the let
ter Is reprinted botow in full, aa fol
lows: SALOONISM ON MAUI.
Editor Honolulu Stnr-Bulletin:
Sir: Mnny of Maul's cltlaons feel
that their county has recently taken
a backward step in the mattor of tem
perance reform. Thero is a general
feeling of humiliation, lnasmur'i an
the record of tho past has been cio
to which her best and foremost people
have pointed with pride. It was the
new liquor board as organised July 1
which, at its first session held that
day, took action causing general sur
prise and indignation. Tho former
board at its last meeting conve-.ied
June 24 passed a resolution ordeiins
all saloons to remain closed on July 3,
the big day of tho races, until 4 o'clock
in the afternoon. This has been the
practise of the board for several years
probably since its first organization.
Tho regulation has acted well and met
with very little opposition, oxcept on
the part of tho saloonlsts. The new
board with Messrs. D. II. Case, W. F.
Kaae and T. B. Lyons, appointed by
tho governor to take the places of
Messrs. Welnzheimer, Cockott and
Copp, arranged wo'.l beforo-hand to
convene July 1, and having organized
with Mr. Lyons ns president and Air.
Case as secretary, proceeded at once
to reconsider tho motion of tho former
board and after some discussion,
rescinded the action taken Juno 21 and
threw the day of tho races wide open
in tho morning until 9 a. m. Tho
remaning commissioners, Messrs. D.
C. Lindsay and C. D. Lufkln, stood by
their guns in a valiant manner, but
it was a cat-e of three to two and the
liquor interests won the day. When
Interviewed in regard to their action,
one of tho new commissioners with
the reputation of a temperance advo
cate stated (hat he felt that the form
er board had no right to bind the now
board to any line of action and more
over It was only fair to give the open
day a trial at leaf-t and watch tho re
sults. It was afterwards learned that
this same nommissioncr betook him
self to the other side of tho island on
tho day in question and spent It quiet
ly with his friends In Lahaina. The
writer has it on good authority that
there was more open drunkenness
reen on Maul July 3 last than on other
race days for many a year. This was
particularly true among tho Hawaii
nns. Another Commissioner, Mr. Kane,
gave ns his reason the matter of his
personal liberty, claiming that he
didn't favor any law of regulation
which would interfere with his right
to purchase a drink In a saloon Sat
urday morning or any other morning.
Mr. Lyons, having been engaged in
tho liquor business himself for some
years, had his own views and convic
tions of course, and as chairman of
the new board, gave the ca&tlng vote
There are now two now applications
for liquor licenses, ono for another
saloon In Wailuku by a Portuguese,
and ono at Wnikapu by a Japanese,
being published in the prose and
which are to bo acted upon by the
commissioners in their session to bo
hold July 29 next. Tho two mem
bers of the old board are both strenu
ously opposed to tho granting of these
petitions, but if it turns out to be a
case of three to two, as was tho cast
July 1st, the decision will bo in fa
vor of tho two new grog shops with
two or three more to follow la'er on,
if tho liquor people meet vith such
Yours very sincerely,
JOHN W. WAi)MAN.
Preparing to Spend
Loan Fund Money
At a meeting of the Maul Loan Fund
Commission in tho olllco of Public

bers took action in tho matter of go
ing ahead with the work on Maui.
The following members were present:
W. F. Pogue, Dr. Rnymond, S. E. Ka
'.'ama and C. R. Forbes.
The question of beginning work on
tho Ollnda reservoir, tho cost of

building for tho new sanitarium, and
the Kuiaha and Haiku roads were all
considered. It was decided to send a
field party to Maul next week to begin
tho field woik on the various projects.

M'Lean Urges Work
On M'Gregors Wharf
Says Lahaina Landing is Getting Worse
Loan Fund Appropriation Avai
lable. In connection vith an investigation
which tho Board of Harbor Commls
Honors Is making In the matter of tho
drowning of two passongois from the
Alauna Ken, while making a landing
at Lahaina, some months ago, Vice
President J. L. AIcLean, of tho Inter
Island company lately declared that
conditions at that port are becoming
worso nnd urged tho prosecution of
the contemplated improvements on
the AIcGregor's Landing. An appro
priation of $10,000 from tho loan fund
was mado by the leglslaturo for the
extension of 125 or 150 feet.
"Under tho present wharf, there is
a big rock," said Mr. AIcLean. "That
rock produces a stronc wash when
'waves ro"l up under tho wharf, and
tno wasli is bad for boats directly out
side, a few feet away at the wharf.
Lahaina is becoming more and more
dangerous. It seems to bo filling up.
As is known, thero Is something
strange in the manner big rollers will
develop thoro from a seemingly
smooth sea; sometimes two or three
great ones will come In almost with
"Very close attention is necessary
at such times; despite the care exer
cised, wo had ono accident thoro re
cently in which two lives woio lost
an accident that, to this time, I cannot
understand, for wo had an experienced
crow in tho boat.
"Nevertheless, dropping that ques
tion, Lahaina is becoming worse.
When it is unsafo for us to enter La
haina, wo must discharge at AIcGre
gor's, and, in view of tho poorer con
ditions at Lahaina, tho work at AIc
Gregor's should bo pushed."
Services at tho Wailuku Union
Church will bo omitted next Sunday
ovonlng by voto of the Standing Com
mittee. This is tho usual custom
when tho annual meeting of tho Ha
waiian Board of Alissions is held out
side of Maul, as it is this year. Air,

legislators wero present at the time
of tho drowning of the Chinese and
tho Japanese picture bride, who wero
thrown Into tho surf at Lahaina land
ing when ono of tho boats capsized.
At tho meeting of tho commission
other matters connected with tho ser
vice of the Inter-Island company will
como up for Investigation. Tho com
plaint of AI. Negoro that Japanese
thlrd-o'nss passengers on Inter-Island
boats aro roughly treated, will also

retary of tbo. Hawaii Japanese Asso
ciation, appeared informally before
tho board several days ago, and made
a coinplnlnt in general terms. He said
tha this evidence was hearsay only,
but that ho could produce witnesses
