to feel that the Harvest Home festivi
ties of last Saturday were nn unquali

the day was enjoyed by the many
hundred guests which partook of tli
hospltality of tlks H. C. & S. Company,
whose special day It was.
The tennis tournament which began
nt 8 o'clock and continued until nftcr
noon on the Puuneno Club courts,
was one or the most exciting over
played In Maul. When the final set
was played, the score stood: Maul,
135: Honolulu, 130. When tho last
match started between Llttlcjohn and
Davis, of Oahu, nnd Englo nnd Taylor,
of Maui, the score was tied.
Maui won the first set of this dou

against them, Llttlcjohn and Davis had
to win Ity C to 1 to give the match to
Oahu. Maui took the first game and

Bowling Was Easy.
Tho All-Maul bowlers had no diffi
culty In recouping tho 2 to 1 defeat
of last year from their Honolulu ad
versaries, taking all three games
played with good margin to spare. It
is truo that Oahu did not have some

a sea trip is not conducive to steady

Would Reduce Coastwise
Fine From $200 to $25 .
As a means of compromise in tho
fight against the coastwise shipping
law, which has been attracting so
much attention lately, a new feature
has been Introduced in a plan to ask
for a reduction from $200 to $25 of tho
fine imposed on foreign boats for car-
rylng passengers from Hawaii to
Fred L. Wnldron, president or tho
Chamber of Commerce, ono of the men
vwho is back of tho new Idea, believes
that it is ono on which tho community
as a whole could get together.
"I am satisfied," says Mr. Waldron," -
"that thoso of us who aro working
tooth and nail for a suspension of the
coatswisa law for passengers, would f
fall In and work for this idea, and surlrr"
n plan should bo a reasonable protcci- ...:
tlon to American lines.
"Fines of $25 for first class passen-.
gers and $15 for second class ought
to meet with popular approval. With
such charges, a man who found him
self with no other means of getting
out than by a foreign boat would in
cause of necessity make tho payment,
without great Inconvenience.
"As far as freight is concerned,"
says Mr. Waldron, "tho merchants
have no reason to complain, and
should bo well satisfied with boih tho
servlco and tho reasonablo rates cov
ering It at present."
