THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1915.
OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES I
Clean Sport or None.
A race-meet at Kapiolanl park dur
ing the Carnival will be a feature de
serving of public support If the Carni
val management and those In charge
of the races eliminate the betting
evil. There have been race-meets not
so long since where In front of the
grandstand the races were apparent
ly "on the square," while under the
grandstands, in the paddock and
around the stables were circulating
"tin-horn" sports, gamblers, touts and
cheap bookmakers reaping a harvest.
After every such affair there have
fr.'n Tumors of "fixed" races and
crooked riding until the lover of clean
sport became disgusted. Unless the
Carnival management can give as
surances that betting will not only be
formally prohibited but actually elim
inated, the meet should not be made
a Carnival feature; if this assurance
is given, then the strongest support
ran be given the proposed event.
Horse-racing is a splendid sport and
on mainland tracks it has been shown
that horse-racing without systematic
betting is possible. Star-Bulletin.
In future and not so far distant time
when a man calls up London on the
wireless telephone from Hilo, will he
overhear a Honolulu knocker at work?
One man Is credited In a Honolulu
paper with having said that a girl's
mother was dead and that her father
was far worse offbecause he lived in
Hilo. Some Joke that, and one of the
kind that we are all very tired of.
At any rate Hilo does Jail her crooks
when she finds them. What about
Honolulu?. Hawaii Herald.
Filth No Disease Cure.
The magazine writer who recently
used the expression, "in the good old
days before the reformer stalked
through the land," must have had in
mind something akin to the so-called
great moral picture shown at a local
theater last week. Exhibition of nau
seating scenes like those in that pic
ture cannot possible do any good, and
the harm they may do Is unmeasur
able. The flaunting of filth and dirty
is not a remedy for any disease, al
though the research association which
produced the picture attempt to make
the public believe so. Hilo Tribune.
"Far off fields look green," or words
to that effect, apply well to the pro
position placed before residents of
these islands who are invited to pay
$1,250 for ten acres of land in Cali
fornia and proceed there to settle
and make a living. An agent for a
land company is at present in these
islands and he is trying to induce
Portuguese who have some money
at least $1,250, it can be sure to
leave the islands and proceed to the
valleys and plains of California and
there pay $125 per acre for ten acre
tracts. Nothing is known as to the
cost of a house, stock, implements and
a hundred other things. One thing
is known, however and that is that
$1,250 must be paid for the land in
There are other places In the world
where bona fide settlers can obtain
land for nothing and good land at that.
Any money that they, , might hart
could be spent on the many things
required on a ranch or farm. It is a
peculiar thing that these islands have
to be exploited for would-be settlers.
One would think that plenty of peo
ple could be found on the mainland
who would only be too willing to buy
the land if it is as described, on the
The appeal to the Portuguese to
leave Hawaii "where they are treated
so badly," is a foolish piece of work.
One can look around anywhere and
find Judges, lawyers, representatives,
business men and many others of the
Portuguese race who have made a
name and a standing for themselves
In these islands. They are to be found
In every office, elective and otherwise.
To have a former resident of the is
lands come here and declare that the
Portuguese had better (that is the
ones with $1,250) desert Hawaii that
gave them a home and made them
independent, is an insult to the intel
ligence of one of our best classes of
citizens. "Green fields afar look well,"
but they cannot be as green as our
own hospitable country where every
one lives in accord and where there
are not the troubles and worries of
other countries where difflerent na
tionalities live and toil together. Ha
waii nel is good enough for anyone
with or without $1,250. Hawaii Her
ald. The bigger Hilo grows the less one
hears about the Hilo knocker, not that
there are not as many alleged Jokes
concerning the Second City nor fewer
little slams, but because Hilo is now
getting big enough to overlook most
of them. It is only a small person
or a dirrtinutive" community wMf
looks for insults continually and finds
them in casual Jests. Some day Hilo
will be big enough to laugh at these
Jokes herself, and then the "ham
mer" will be buried in actuality. Ad

A recent letter sent by Capt. Wil
liam Matson to Castle & Cooke, Mat
son agents here, states that Capt.
Troels Smith is to be made captain of
the Lurline, Capt. Francis M. Edwards
given command of the Manoa, and
Capt. William F. Rind assigned the

School Property Worth $1,716,263.
The department of education in the
Territory of Hawaii represents a per
manent investment of $1,716,263, in
land, buildings and general equipment,
Such is the estimate set on its physi
cal value by the department, which
has Just completed an inventory of
its entire holdings.

county's part is real estate, $55,703;
buildings, $229,550; equipment, $26,-
538, and supplies, $294.
The big demand for Hawaiian ba
nanas on the coast cannot be taken
care of, according to Director Longley
of the Territorial marketing division,
on account of lack of transportation
facilities. It will not be wise to plant
more of this fruit for export until
shipping facilities improve, says Mr.
W. I). Cattell, who arrived this week
from San Francisco by the Matsonia,
is the expert engaged by the Hono
lulu Rapid Transit & Land Company
to testify for it as to the proper valu
ation of the property of the Honolulu
company, in the courts. Mr. Cattell
has some reputation, it is said as an
expert in such work.
Planters May Leave Trust.
That the Hawaii sugar planters are
about to close a deal by which the
bulk of island sugar will in the future
be sold to an independent Philadel
phia refinery, cutting out in part or
entirely the "trust," or American
Sugar Refinery Company, Is a rumor
in Honolulu this week. The report
is generally credited on the street.

Word has reached Honolulu that
William Weisbarth, who sailed in a
small schooner for the Gilbert Islands
six months ago intending to make
his future home there, had had a mis
hap, and drifted for three months
before he was relieved by a tramp
steamer. He is now in the Gilberts,
but his 65 years and his Impaired
health are said to be factors that may
bring him back to Hawaii.
Marcallino Pleads Guilty.
