WAILUKU, MAUI, T. H., SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1915.
Work on Big
Engineer on Ground to Spend Loan
Fund Money Olinda Reservoir
First Wailuku Water Works Soon
.to Be Improved.
Work on the new Olinda reservoir,
the extension of the Wailuku water
works system, roads and bridges In
Kulaha, llnna, Klhel and Lahatna, and
other projects provided for by the
last legislature, Is to bo started at
once. By the Mauna Kea on Wednes
day evening, D. F. Balch, an engineer
of the public works department, and
two assistants, William C. Hughes and
W. L. Hip, arrived to take up the
work. An office Is to bo established
In Wailuku, and Mr. Balch states that
it is probable ho will be busy here
for a year or more.
The larger part of the money for
Maul improvements comes through
appropriations from the loan fund, and
will be spent under the direction of
the Maui Loan Fund Commission. Mr.
Balch is to be engineer for the com
mission, and at the same time ho will
represent the department of public
works In a number of smaller matters
for which specific appropriations were
made from the general funds of the
Charles K. Forbes, superintendent
of public works, and an exofllclo mem
ber of the loan fund commission, is
expected to arrive this morning, or
early next week, for the purpose of
going over the ground with the other
members of the commission and help
ing to lay out the .work to bo done.
Olinda Reservoir First.
Probably the first project to be tak
en up will be the Olinda reservoir for
which ?50,000 was appropriated. The
plans and specifications for this will
bo made as soon as possible after the
engineers complete the necessary field
work, and then bids for the construc
tion will be called for. At the same
time tho engineers will be working
out the data and preparing specifica
tions for the Kulaha road and Klhel
road improvements, for which the field
work has already been done, and these
projects will be soon under way.
Another project that Is to receive
early attention is tho extension and
improvement of the Wailuku water
works system. It is understood that
most of the data on this has already
been prepared, so that it will but a
short matter to advertise for bids and
got this work under way.
Tho members of the loan fund com
mission, consisting of W. F. Pogue,
chairman, S. E. Kalama, and Dr. J. H.
Raymond, were in Honolulu last week
when 'their work was reviewed in a
general way with Superintendent For
bes. It will be gone over in more de
tail with Mr. Forbes next week. U.
A. Wadsworth, also a member of tho
commission, is at present on the main

The caso was taken to the Supremo
Court from Judgo Kingsbury's deci
sion, and was sent back by the higher
court on grounds that Judgo Kings
bury had taken testimony behind
closed doors, and had otherwise Im
properly conducted tho trial. In dis
missing tho case, Judge Edings does
so on tho grounds that neither libel
lant nor llbelleo have proven their al
legations. Enos Vincent represented Makahio
in tho matter, and Eugeno Murphy
was attorney for the wife.
DR. AIKEN AND SISTER
HAVING DELIGHTFUL TOUR
A brief noto received from Dr. Ccc.
S .Aiken, who with his sister. Miss
Irene Aiken, is touring California by
motor car, indicates that they aro hav
ing a flno time. Mr. A'kcn wrote from
Camp Curry, where they had been
resting after tho long drive from th
Mexican border in Southern Califor
nia. Ho states that he has been tak
ing advantage of his time to do a lit
tle lecturing on Hawaii and aliow lan
tern views of tho Islands. Tho Alkons
were about ot start for San Francisco
to visit tho exposition.
Great Interest In
Today's Polo Game
Both Oahu and Maui Players and Po
nies in Fine Condition Fleming
Will Play. Good Crowd From Maui.
The big po'.o game of the year,
which will bo played this after
noon in Honolulu between tho Oahu
and tho Maul teams, promises to be
one of tho greatest games ever played
In the Islands. This fact Iwb been
generally recognized, and tho game
will doubtless be watched by a tre
mendous crowd. Quite a large num
ber of Maul enthusiasts, besides tho
members of tho icam, left last night,
and strong confidence is felt that the
local knights of the mallet will bo
able to bring homo tho bacon, in spite
of the fact that Oahu is unusually
strong this year. One cause of satis
faction is in the fact that Dave Flem
ing will bo able to play. He has not
been well, and up to a week ago It was
uncertain whether or not ho Would be
able to ride. This means much to
Maul, for Fleming is recognized as one
of the strongest members of the local
quartet. Another thing that will
count Is the fact that Maul's string of
ponies is probably tho best ever seen
in an Island match. These pon'cs
wore sent down !ast Saturday and are
reported to be in tho pink of condi
tion. Among them nre: Carry the
News, Dandy, Coy Blue. Parlor Maid,
Billy Lucas, Little Arthur, Silver Tail,
Dees Wings, Mynah Bird and Easter
The Oahu team also has some fine
mounts, including the great Helen C,
one of the best polo ponies in the
world ,and probably second only to
Dr .Baldwin's Carry the iMews, which
will be ridden in the game by Frank
Baldwin. Others of Oahu's horses are:
Jennie C, Gold Dust, Buttons, Grand
ma Bess, In and Out, Quick Silver,
Grey Dawn and Halemaumau.
Tho Oahu team consists of Arthur
Rice, Walter Dillingham, Harold Cas
tle and Walter Macfarlane. Maui's
four are: Arthur Collins, Frank Bald
win, Sam Baldwin, and Davo Fleming.
Besides the game this afternoon,
tho Maui team will play on Tuesday
an army team, consisting of a com
bination of the best players from the
various military organizations on
Oahu. It is believed that they will bo
able to put up a strong game.
Dr. Penhallow Not
A Lusitania Victim
Senator Penhallow Receives Word
That Cousin Canceled His Booking
Just Before Liner Sailed.
For six weeks past Senator H. B.
Penhallow has moruned as a victim of
tho Lusitania sinking, his favorite
cousin, Dr. D. P. Penhallow, of Bos
ton. This week he has the glad sur
prise of knowing that tho report was
a mistake, and that his cousin is allvo
It seems that although Dr. Penhal
low had booked on the Lusitania, on
the eve of her tragic last voyage he
for some reason canceled his passage.
This fact was not known by his rela
tives, who believed that he was ono

Dr. Penhal'jow had expected to otter
his professional services as a physi
cian and surgeon in the war zone.
Korean Forges Mrs. D. D.
Waldwin's Name to Check
Tho Honolulu police aro looking for
a Korean named Pak Young Slk, who
is wanted hero on Maui for forgery.
Tho man was formerly employed by
Mrs. D. D. Baldwin, of Haiku, and
when ho presented a check for $22,
ostensibly signed by her, It was
promptly paid by tho Wailuku Bank.
It later developed that Mrs. Baldwin's
name on the check was a forgery. Tho
check was passed on Juno 30, though
It had been dated April 30.
Pak previously attempted to pass
a check for $167, signed with tho name
of E. D. Baldwin, or Honolulu, at the
Baldwin National Bank, Kahulul, but
did not succeed. Tho man, it Is stated,
had previously been given his pay by
checks of Mrs. Baldwin, and it is
stated that his forgery of her name
was a very good one.

Tho Puuncno charm was broRen
last Sunday by tho Iloblnson aggre
gation from Paia, when the latter won
the first game of tho second series
and gave a coating of whitewash to
Paschoal's champions; and this after
they had won five games straight.
"Blondlo" Williams, who has to a
large extent been tho cause of Puune
ne's victories, did not show up in
form, the result being that ten hits
and the same number of runs were
scored off him, and ho allowed four
freo passes to first base. It was his
last game on Maui, ho having left for
Honolulu during the week. What Pas-
choal will do for a new slabster re
mains to be seen.
For tho Paias, Foster Robinson, who
made such a sp'.ondld record when
traveling tho mainland with the All
Chinese team, has resblved to do the
pitching for his team during this se
ries, and expects to be able to lead
them to first place. His pitching Sun
day, while not what might bo termed
classy, as ten hits were gotten off his
deliveries, was steady. No scores were
made and no bases allowed. And then
ho fielded his position in great style,
being credited with two put outs and
five assists. His team mates gave him
good support, only ono error being
chalked against Paoa, who fumbled an
The scoring began in the second Inn
ing, when Kaleo was allowed first, be
ing hit by .1 pitched ball, Rocha walk
ed, and Yamolo blngled to left gar
den, scoring Kaleo. Paoa walked and
the bags were full. Foster Robinson
hit a fly out to left and Phillips' muf
fle of the :iame allowed two men in.
The inning closed with Mahuka fan
ning out, being tho third strike out by
Williams in ono inning.
,A home run by Alvln Iloblnson in
the third inning and another run by
Itocha in the fourth brought tho score
to five. No further scoring was made
until tho ninth, when five tallies were
added, making a total of ten runs to
the Puunene's zero.
Sunday's umpiring was done by Geo.
Cummings and Heimle Meyer. It is
understood that Bill Chilllngworth has
quit the job, but ho exact reason for
his action is not definitely known.
Tomorrow's contest will bo between
tho Hawalis and Puunenos. Both
teams have been weakened by tho loss
of players, but they aro out to win
just the same. A good attendance is

Rain Could Not Spoil
Wailuku Mill Dance
Big Crowd Adjourned to K.ofP. Hall
When Showers Began Hundreds
Have Delightful Evening.
Rain interefered with tho plans for
the big Wailuku Sugar Comninv
dance, last Saturday evening, but al
though the out of .door dancing was
stopped, it did not by any means
break up the jolly crowd which simply
adjourned to the K. of P. Hall and
continued to trip the light fantastic
until after midnight.
Tho dance was ono of tho largest
to be held in Wniluku In many a day,
there being present between 400 and
500 Invited guests. A huge platform
had been built on the now tennis
court grounds at tho mill, and much
pains had been taken in lichtine and
decorations. Tho result was a very
beautiful setting in greenery and .-oi-ored
lights. Although tho weather
had been thraetenlng throughout tho
day, tho big dancing floor had been
kept dry with tarpallns. Tho big or
chestra rendered fine music, and for
a short time the guests enjoyed tho
excellent dancing "conditions to the
limit. Then the rain started, nnd the
out door feature was at an end.
Much credit for tho success of tho
dance Is duo to tho hard work of W.
Leslio West, Seabury Short, and
others of tho mill force who spent
many uays preparing for tho occasion
How One Employer Will
Beat Compensation Law
Notwithstanding tho fact that the
new Workmen's Compensation Law
provides for a fine of f250 to bo im
posed upon the employer who makes
any deduction from the wages of his
employes to apply against tho insur
ance ho is required to carry, ono em
ployer on Maul declared that his
workmen will have to stand it.
"And this is tho way I'll work that,"
ho explained. "You see I have never
deducted nnythlng for holidays or
other tlmo taken off by my men, but
now that my insurance will cost me
about ?100 per year I don't feel that I
can continue tills practice. I've told
them tho situation, and from now on
I pay for working days only. I figure
that It will about break even."

HONOLULU, Tulv 23. Th C roof of the new nrmnrv line 'Iippii
declared safe. Sagging in roof can
Bar association favors the appointment of Rohertson or Stainback
to succeed Judge Whitney.
LONDON, July 23. No serious hreach yet made in inner line
of the Warsaw defenses. On the south the Russians are falling back
from the drive of Mackcnscn. Teuton advance is temporarily checked.
Berlin claims gains in the Baltic provinces where the Russians are
tailing back before the German advance on Riga. Russians have as
sumed new tactics.
WASHINGTON, July 23. The administration will wait to see
what the reception of note will be in Germany. Wilson will call a
special session of Congress to decide what action is to be taken.
The next step following the note to Germany will be taking up
of Great Britain's orders in council. Protests have been prepared, the
contention being that the United States cannot be bound by British
emergency orders, and that international law must govern.
BERLIN, July 23. Germany has an abundance of raw materials
to carry on the war. The captures of Russian machine guns since the
war began number 15,000.
PARIS, July 23. Heavy fighting in Alsace. French have met
with success, making gains which about offset those made by the crown
LONDON, July 23. Further gains by Allies in Gallipoli. New
assaults on Turkish fortresses ordered by French war office yesterday.
There have been no British merchantmen sunk by German sub
marines within the past weefc. British and Norwegian ships set afire
by Germans constitute the only damage.
PHILADELPHIA, July 23. John Wanamakcr has plans by which
America would buy Belgium for $100,000,000,000, this sum to be furnished-
by American merchants and loaned to our government without
interest. The country would be restored to the Belgians.
SEATTLE, July 22. Unusual precautions are being taken at the
Bremerton naval yard. All visitors arc now required to register.
WASHINGTON, July 22. Secretary Lansing is making an in
vestigation to see whether the attack on Naco by Mexican troops was in
violation of the agreement between Mexican leaders and General Scott.
Mexicans agreed at that time not to imperil Naco.
LONDON, July 22. Russian generals are attempting tactics that
met success against Napoleon. Are withdrawing slowly and inflicting
as heavy losses on enemy as possible. The German drive is now reach
ing further north towards Riga and along the line stretching into Gali
cia. The campaign is being pressed. Retreating Russians are laying
waste the country through which they pass, to hinder the enemy and '
to prevent sustenance of troops. Bridges are destroyed and roads dy
namited. All provisions in the country are being removed. Country in
Courland section is now a dreary waste. Windau has been evacuated
and left in flames. The spirit of the Russian army is unbroken. It is
withdrawing in good order, but rumors that, while belief of ultimate
victory is firm, the Russians feel they are bearing an unequal share of
the war burden. While the Germans relentlessly press home the sting
ing defeat administered to Russians last month, Russians pray for vic
tory that will check Germans and enable them to take up a strong de
fensive position to protect Warsaw, now in grave danger. The question
is how much longer it will be wise for Russians to remain.
WASHINGTON, July 22. The United States has taken over the
interests of the Belgian and Serbian legations in Warsaw.
PETROGRAD, July 22. Counter attacks of Russians drove back .'
Germans along line of Narew river. Russians are holding well on the
left of the Vistula.
BERLIN, July 22. The Russians have been driven from the fort
ress Ivangorod, shielding Warsaw. The forces are now closely invested.
WASHINGTON, July 22. The German torpedo which sinks an
unarmed merchantman and results in the death of one American, will
be Germany's declaration of war against the United States. This is
made plain in the note unanimously adopted by the cabinet after con
sultation with President Wilson, and prepared by Secretary Lansing,
and soon to be in the hands of Ambassador Gerard for presentation
to Count Von Jagow, the German minister of foreign affairs.
The note will be forwarded tomorrow. It states that the United
States must insist upon a disavowal from Germany of any intention
to sink the Lusitania. The proposal advanced by Germany that immun
ity will be guaranteed passenger-carrying American steamships pro
vided with the guarantee of the American government that such ships
are noi carrying comrananu ot war, ami tnat Uermany will also guar
antee immunity to four named steamers flying the flag of belligerents,
provided the same guarantee that no contraband is aboard, is rejected
without qualification, with the emphatic assertion that this, for the
government pf the United States, would be an admission of Germany's
right to set aside America's contention that neutrals may travel any
where upon the high seas on unresisting merchant ships of any nationaal
ity, whether such ships carry contraband or not.
Unless peace is declared soon, Consul General liana, at Monterey,
Mexico, declares Mexico will be the hungriest place on earth. Thou
sands already saved from starvation by the American Red Cross, in
whose bread lines 20,000 Mexicans have stood; but the crisis will come
this fall when crops are to be harvested. The fate of the Mexican
capital is in doubt. Nothing from there today.
LONDON, July 22. On the greatest of all battles, in which more
men face each other than in any battle in history, the fate of Warsaw
hangs. The German commander has carried the Russian field works
and is now hammering at prominent Russian defenses. British critics
agree that upon the quality of Russian resistance depends the success
or failure of the whole German offensive movement.
W ounded soldiers brought from Italian base at Undine, report
Italian armies are incessantly attacking from Gradisca to Tulomiito, on
a front 35 miles long. Austrian defeat there would be a serious mat
ter and the armies of the dual monarchy are extending resistance to
the limits of endurance.
