There will be three Oahu players in
the game: Walter Dillingham, Har
old Castle and Arthur nice, but they
will not all play on one side. An
other feature of Interest Is the fact
that Edward Baldwin, the 12-year o'.d
son of P. P. Baldwin will play. Young
Baldwin was forecast as a coming star
in the polo world, by experts in Ho
nolulu during the recent tournament,
and his advent In a regular gamo will
doubtless be quite a drawing card in

lows, playing In order given: Team
1: W. A. Clark, Edward Baldwin, Wal
ter Dillingham, and P. P. Baldwin.
Team 2: A. W. Collins, Harold Cas
tle, Caleb Burns, and Arthur Rice.

thur S. Rico; Ernest Podmore, C. Za
brisk! ; Clarence S. Olson, Dr. I'cdon.
The Maul teams which will meet the
Oahu exports have been selected

and the outlook is that they will onco
more be able to retain the inter-island
tennis honors hero on Maui. The

Company for Maui
Charles P. Drake, agency superin
tendent of tho Homo Insurance Com
pany of Hawaii, arrived last Wednes
day evening and will bo on Maul for
the next week or two looking into in
surance matters. Mr. Drake states
that Zeno K. Myers, manager of tho
Homo company, hopes soon to organ
ize a local insurance corporation on
Maui, as has already been dono on
Hawaii and Kauai. Tho idea of those
companies is to bo able to carry as
much Hawaii insuranco as posslblo
right in tho islands, dividing tho risks
between tho companies, and obviating
as largely as possible tho reinsurance
business now done on tho mainland
and In Europe.

To Reissue Policies
Accident Board Assured Law Will Be
Complied With Others Will Pro
bably Follow Suit.
The action of the Industrial Acci
dent Board in turning down all of the
policies of workmen's compensation in
suranco thus far written in this coun
ty by the various insurance compan
ies, caused some little consternation
among the various employers who had
taken out such policies. There was
some question also as to whether or
not tho companies would be willing to
write policies which fully comply with
tho new law, in which caso naturally
the law could not bo enforced. How
ever it seems likely that all tho com
panies will make tho changes in their
policies required by the"board.
The first company to notify the
board of lt3 intention to do this was
the Home Insuranco Company, and the
others are expected to follow suit.
Zeno K. Meyers, manager of the Homo
company, In a letter to (lie board
states that tho London Lancashire
Guarantee and Accident Company of
Canada will have new policy blanks
printed at once to replace all thus far
Issued, and the board has granted the
company rcasonablo time to do this.
Special Meeting Called
On Sunday Movies
Sunday movies for Maul is evidently
still a live issue and tho board of
supervisors will glvo special consider
ation to tho matter at a meeting to
bo held at noon next Monday. TKo
proposition got before the board again
on Thursday through a letter from
Greorgo Frceland, of tho Pioneer Ho
tel, who Is proprietor of several pic
ture houses on West Maul, and who
has been most interested of tho movie
managers for Sunday performance
In his letter, Mr. Freeland states
that, in order to test the popular de
mand tor Sunday shows, ho has lately
given on Sundays freo performances,
under advice of the County Attorney.
At tho first of these, on July 25, the
attendance was 1150 and on August
8, a still larger crowd was entertained.
As he believes the board wishes to bo
governed by tho peoplo who want Sun
day shows, he believes ho has proved
According to License Inspector Som
merfold, tho new antl-treatlng regu

No Carnegie Library
For Maui This Year
Trustees Think Time Not Ripe
Community Too Scattered Offi
No steps will bo taken to secure a
Carnegie library for Maitl for at least
another yenr. This decision was taken
bytlie trustees of tho Maul Library
Association at a meeting held last
Monday evening, and was arrived at
after tho matter had been discussed
at some length. It was the opinion
that tho proposition warrants a good
deal more thought before attempting
to raise required maintenance guaran
tee. This guarantee, according to tho
terms under which the Carnegie Foun
dation Is willing to consider furnish
Ing libraries, is that a site bo furnish
ed for tho building, and that the coun
ty authorities make provision for an
annual revenue equal to 10 percent of
the cost of the library given. If Maul
got a library costing $20,000, tho main
tenance guarantee must bo S2000 per
year. The fact that Maul's population
is so scattered creates a doubt as to
tho practicability of a big library to
cover the whole district.
Tho trustees elected tho following
officers and committees: D H. Case,
president; Dr. William Osmers, vice
president; D. C. Lindsay, treasurer; R.
B. Dodge, secretary; Administration
committee: D. C. Lindsay, Wm. Sear
by, Dr. Osmers, with tho president an'
secretary as ex-offlclo members; aud

Walker, Chas. Wilcox; book commit
tee: R. B. Dodge, Mrs. Wm. Searby,
Mrs. F. P. Baldwin, Mrs. H. B. Pen

Refused to Modify
Fleming Would Exonerate Former
Overseer On One Point, But Other
As a result of statements made to
the, board of , supervisors at its last
meeting by former supervisor Meyer,
of Molokal, Supervisor Fleming on
Thursday offered a motion to eliml
nato the seventh specification in the
charges filed against H. R. Hitchcock,
by tho special committee appointed to
look into his record as district over
seer. Tho suggestion was vigorously
opposed by Pall and others, and no
action was taken.
Tho charge lii question was tho ono
"alleging that Hitchcock had made uso
of county mules for doing his own
work. Mr. Meyer had explained thfs
by stating that tho work was dono at
his own suggestion in return for
pressing work for the county which
Hitchcock had dono with his own
mules. Mr. Fleming thought that the
explanation should be accepted as sat
isfactorily explaining tho particular
point, but ho was not supported and
tho matter was dropped.
Johnson Not Very
Popular on Maui
Rumor That Bal Resigned From Na
tional Guard On Account Old Fric
tion With New Adjutant General.
By a special order of tho adjutant
general's department, of tho National
Guard of Hawaii, dated August 0,
Major W. E. Bal, of tho 3rd battalion,
N. G. H is placed on tho retired list
at his own request. Major Bal had
only held the position about a year,
but in resigning ho gives as his rea
son, press of other business.
It Is rumored that tho recent ap
pointment by tho Governor of Col.
Sam Johnson as adjutant general to
succeed Colonel J. W. Jones, may havo
also had something to do with Major
Bal's decision. It is known that John
son's appointment was not a popular
ono in somo sections of tho guard, In
cluding Maul, where tho Colonel had
somo serious friction with local offi
cers during tho suppression of a strike
at Lahaina somo years ago.
Tho organ recital of Walter Handel
Thorloy at the Wailuku Union Church
last Sunday night, was a raro treat to
a very large audience of music lovers
of Maul. Thero 13 no doubt thai Mr.
Thorloy's ability had not been over
rated. Ho Is a master artist. lit Is
probable that Maul has never had the
pleasure of a visit from a musician of
more ability. Tho program was a
comprehensive one, and splondldly dis
played the romarkablo technlquo of
tho player. Mr. Thorloy has been do
lighting Honolulu audiences with a
number of recitals during tho past
Haleakala Road May
Be By Way of Kula
Re-grading By Prisoners Will Make
Easy Route to 4000-Foot Elavation
Better Climatic Route.
In all probability tho long talked
of road' up Haleaka!a will bo through
Kula and not by wny or Ollnda, the
present trail route. This idea seems
to be gaining ground and a number of
good arguments aro offered by tho ad
vocates of this course. Perhaps tho
strongest is that climatic conditions
aro better through Kula, and that
there would bo less difficulty In rainy
weather than by Makawao and Olln
Another reason nut forth Is that tho
present Kula road system reaches an
elevation of 4000 feet,- or equal to
that of Ollnda, and that with the
relocating now being done between
Pu'.ehu and Kcalahou, by which a
numiier of grndes will bo eliminated
a Very fair start for tho summit of
tho mountain will havo already been
made. Tho convict gang has now be
gun the regrading of this particular
section, which will require' perhaps
slxhnonths, and When this Is finished
tho, plan Is to continue on tho Halea
kala road proper.
