The President of the United States having proclaimed the

praise and thanksgiving for the mercies and favors granted us.
Let us, as we need, broaden our minds, sympathies and
understandings, and seek justice for all that the scales may
While wc pray for the nations ,pf the earth, now in des
perate struggle, let us trust to the inscrutiblc ways of the
pcratc struggle, let us trust to the inscrutable ways of the
Creator and Ruler of the Universe and bow to his decision, be
it as it may.
Let the people gather in their places of worship and homes,
and each, as his heart and conscience dictates, give thanks,
intensify and renew family affection and welcome the stranger
within our gates.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and
caused the Great Seal of the Territory of Hawaii to be affixed.
Done at the Capitol in Honolulu this 1st day of Novem
ber, A. D. 1915.

Secretary of Hawaii.
Fight For Property
Say Divorce Illegal
Collateral Heirs Claim Property of
Former Mrs. Kcohokalole. Many
Divorces Will Do Affected.
Because they claim that the late
Mrs. Alcxandrlna Lclhulu Clark, of
Honolulu, was never legally married
to II. M. Clark, for the reason that her
divorce from her previous husband,
Morris Keohokalalc, of Walluku, was
not legal, David U. K. Maikal and
Samuel L. Maikal have filed a claim
In the Honolulu courts for all of the
property of the deceased on grounds
that they aro the only surviving heirs.
Incidentally the caso Is said to Involve
some 300 other divorced couples of
some thrco or four years ngo.
At that time, through the custom
of granting divorces before- the speci
fied period of 30 days had elapsed
after service of the complaint, the
supremo court held that all such were
Illegal. These were straightened out
In many Instances, It Is now claimed,
by simply filing duplicates of the orl
clnal decree, without further notice
to the parties. Tills Is the grounds up
on which the Maikals, as collateral
heirs, aro claiming the estate of the
late Mrs. Clark, said to bo worth be
tween $10,000 and $15,000.
Clark, who lives on the coast, re
cently returned to Honolulu to claim
the estate. Tho Malkais aro repre
sented in their fight by Stanley &
Wilder, and aro being assisted by
Morris Kcohokalole, according to
Judge A, A. Wilder, a member of tho
HANA SAW SUBMARINES
PASS ON WAY TO COAST
Tho peoplo of Hana had their first
glimpse of Undo Sam's under-sea
fighters, last Saturday, when tho threo
"F" class submarines, which have
been stationed at Honolulu for sov-
cral years, passed close by tho cast
Maui port on their way to tho coast.
Thoboats were intow of tho cruiser
Maryland and tho tender Alert. It had
been tho intention to stop at Hilo
and givo tho crows a chanco to see
tho Volcano, which accounts for their
unusual course. Rough weather, how
ever, decided the commander not to
stop, and tho liotllla continued on its
way to San Francisco. Theso sub
marines will probably bo retired as
they aro considered about obsolete,
and havo been replaced in Honolulu
by tho newer "K" class boats.
MAUI FILIPINOS PUN
Tho Filipino Benevolent Society, of
Maui, according to Pedro Esqucras,
president of tho organization, Is pre
paring to open a co-operative store,
within tho next fow weeks at Kahului,
Whilo tho store is to bo undertaken
for tho benefit of tho Filipino mem
hers, Esquoras states that it will sell
goods to non-members also.
Would Raise Rates
Asks Permission To Make Business
Houses Pay $5.00, and to Allow
Tolls to Lahaina and liana.
The Maui Telephone Company has
filed a petition with tho public utili
ties commission for permission tp
raise Its rates for service on business
phones, and to establish toll rates
with Lahaina and Hana. The board
has accordingly called a meeting to
be held in Honolulu on Wednesday,
November 11, at 7:30 p. m., at which
time tho matter will be considered.
Tho telephone company proposes
raising its rate from $3.50 per month
to $5 per month for phones in stores,
offices, and other business places, and
establishing a toll rate of 5 cents on
messages to Lahaina, and 10 for con
nections with Hana. An additional
rental of 50 cents per month is to be
charged for extension phones. Nip
change Is made in tho present rest
dence rate of $3.50.
No Caretaker Now At
Haleakala Rest House
Tho Japanese caretaker at tho Hale
akala rest house has been discharged
becauso ho has persisted in absenting
himself from the place too much of
tho time. After tomorrow tho key
of tho rest houso may bo obtained
at Idlewllde, and tho $1 per night for
use of tho house must bo paid there.
Tho rest houso committee an
nounces that all tho furniture is now
installed and that the roof has been
repaired so that it doesn't leak. The
concrete walls still admit a little rain
in driving storms, but not enough to
bo serious. It Is stated that for tho
present at least no care taker will bo
kept at the summit.

Asked For by Chamber of Commerce.
Would Have Convicts Build the
The Maui Chamber of Commerce
favors a road to tho summit of Hale
akala sometime. It isn't ready Just
yet to say that the time for under
taking tho formidable job has arrived,
but at tho special meeting hold yes
terday afternoon for tho purposo of
considering tho matter, a motion was
adopted by which the superintendent
of public works will bo asked to make
a preliminary survey of such a road,
and to furnish some idea of how tho
work should ho done, and how much
it will cost. When such data Is avail
able, the problem of actually getting
tho road built will then bo in order
The Chamber Is also in favor of
having all tho territorial prisoners
available put to work on Maul roads,
and the committee appointed at the
last regular mooting to take tho mat
ter up with tho board of supervisors,
was further instructed to recommend
to tho county authorities, that steps
towards this end be taken. Tho com
mittee consists of D. C. Lindsay, R. A.
Wadsworth, and J. J. Walsh.
Tho chamber also again went on re
cord of favoring keeping up tho county
appropriation of $50 per month for
tho Hawaii promotion committee, and
adopted a resolution to this effect.
There was a good deal of discus
sion as to tho value of publicity work
and tourist promotion to Maui, both
in connection with tho proposed moun
tain road, and tho cutting off of the
promotion committee subscription by
the county some time ago. D. C. Lind
say, William Searby, and some others
expressed tho conviction that Maui
has not profited in any obserablo de
gree from tho money already spent,
and were opposed to doing anything
more in that direction. W. B. Thom
son and H. A. Baldwin did not favor
the idea of asking for territorial con
victs for building tho Haleakala road,
but did want the prisoners for uso
on county roads. Mr. Thomson urged
the importance of building a real road
from Kahului to central Kula. Other
speakers urged the necessity for road
improvement in many other places
on Maui. A. C. Bowdish felt that the
Pala-Makawao road should bo put
tnrougn, which ho held would give
Kula an outlet under all conditions.
C. D. Lufkin pointed out that all
those roads mentioned aro county
roads and should be kept up by tho
county. E. It. Bovins was not in favor
of convict work on strictly county
jobs. It. A. Wadsworth, J. Garcia, and
w. O. Aiken, were among tho cham
pions of the getting some kind of a
start on tho Haleakala road, and of
backing up promotion work. D. H
Caso presented tho resolution, later
adopted, urging the supervisors to re
new tho promotion committee contrl
President F. F. Baldwin was of tho
opinion that tho building of a road
to Haleakala is too big a job to bo un
dertakon without duo thought. Ho
thought that such a road would cost
at least $500,000. William Serhy.
thought that $300,000 might do It, but
that it would bo a road about 30 miles
long when It was completed.
Mr. wadsworth, while not able to
point to any specific results from the
money spent for promotion, still be
lieved that such results havo boon
received, and Worth Aiken. W. H.
i-ieiu, anu j. j. waisn were certain
that they could show very definite
benefit In way of tourist travel.
