Good Rains Help Some
Somo heavy showers in different
parts of Maui during tho past week
have been very welcome in these fav
ored sections, but the rain has been
far from general. Last Saturday and
Sunday portions of Kula and UlupaTa

Walluku proper and Waikapu have
also had rains which havo replenished
tho ditches and helped growing cafifi;

Demand for Share of Gale Receipts
Resented Honolulu Ball "Trust".
Blamed for Attempted Holdup.
The expected visit of the Mciji base
ball team for a series on Maul next
week, will probably not come off. This
for tho reason that a demand Is now
made on the local Japanese promoters
of tho series, for not only an all ex
penses guaranlee but a share of the
gate receipts as well. Inasmuch as
tho Japanese players were to bo on
Maui for practically a week, arid as
tho cost of caring for them was esti
mated at $400, it is a positive cer
tainty that no other guarantee will bo

arranging for the visit or the team nro
pretty sore at the outcome, Inasmuch
as It was understood In the first place
that they would be expected to stand
only tho ordinary expenses. They
were not oven sure of being able to
do this from tho three games planned,
but through the generosity of two
prominont plantation men they were
in position to assume this much of
The letter demanding a part of tho
gate receipts, was written by Thomas
Treadway, of the Honolulu Baseball
League, and it Is this league that is
now blamed for tho changed face of
things, rather than the visiting play
ers themselves. Tho team has finish
ed its series In Honolulu, and passed
hero on Wednesday on way to Hilo
for a number of games. It is possible
that tho pillkla may ho straightened
out before they return to Honolulu
and that the proposed series will be
played after all; hut if it is, It will

Tho last legislature put somo now
teeth In tho game law (Act 110, S. L.
1915) which it behooves all lovers of
tho dog and gun to become familiar
with. For instance tho lowest ponal

as $200. Also In order to help tho

There are still somo other draw

costing $5 per year must bo secured,
and then before you may legally go
out and kill, you must get tho per
