DEATH OF FORMER RESIDENT.
Word was received hero this week
f tho death of Mrs. May Lowroy
loos, formerly of Maui, which occured
m November 10, at her homo in Ala
neda, following an operation. Mrs.
)ees was well known on Maul, as the
vlfe of Edward Threlsall, head luna
'f tho Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar
'ompany, who died about seven years
go. Following tho death of her litis-
and she left tho islands and was later
married a second time. During her
residence on Maui her homo was at

:iieco of W G Lowroy, formorlv man-
ngor of tho H. C. & S. Co.
Be One of the Features of Maui's Big
County Cuts Insurance
From Its Expenditures
At its meeting last week, tho coun
ty supervisors decided not to carry in
surance on any of tho county property
except on the county clerk'B office
building, tho county garage, in Wallu
ku, tho automobile flro truck, and an
other autotruck. Tho matter came up
in connection with the proposal sub
mitted to renew insurance on a num
ber of buildings which have heretoforo
been insured. It was tho sense of the
members that tho county could better
afford to take tho risk of fire on tho
bulk of Its property, than to pay tho
premiums on insurance.
As is now stands none of tho school
buildings or other structures aro pro
tected against flre, except tho two
buildings mentioned in Wailuku.
IN THE CIRCUIT COURT.
In tho Second District court this
week, Charles Copp was permitted to
resign as guardian of tho Ralston
minors, and Judge Edlngs ap
pointed Henry Smith, of Honolulu
in his place. Tho new guardian took
over his duties and the custody of
$756, the property of the children.
An action to quiet title was filed
in tho circuit court yesterday by W.
A. Clark vs. Jose Sllva. Tho suit had
been previously brought against Mrs.
William Miner, but was later dis
missed. Eugene Murphy, last week, brought
suit against E. II. Hart, and W. T.
Robins-on and J. Garcia, as his bonds
men to recover money claimed to
have been deposited with Hart, as
clerk of the court, Later an answer
was filed by tho defendant Garcia in
which denial was made that ho had
ever gone on Hart's bond. It is un
derstood that it was A. Garcia Instead
of J. Garcia, who Is Hart's bondsman.
Judge Edlngs departed for Hono
lulu on Wednesday afternoon and will
not return until after the holidays.
There will be no work in tho circuit
court, therefore, until after tho first
of tho year.
PLAN TO CANCEL MRAKET
Unless .the county supervisors
change their minds during tho next
twelve months, the Walluku public
market will be abandoned within an
other year. At present timo thoy lease
the property from tho Maul Market &
Land Company, and sub-leases to stall
keepers. It is claimed that the county
has but two tenants, however, and
that It pays out eight or ten times as
much as It receives on the property.
The lease may bo canceled In another
year, and notice of such intention was
given at last month's meeting. Tho
supervisors, however, expressed their
willingness, at last week's meeting, to
listen to any new proposition which
tho owners of tho property expressed
a deslro to submit.
As an advertising feature, the Maul
Dry Goods & Grocery Company has bo
gun tho display of somo choice fire
works. Tho first exhibition began last
evening, and attracted attention of re
sidents in all parts of central Maui.
It is announced that this will bo a
featuro nightly between now nnd
New Year's Celebration
Want a Social Hall
Tho inmates of the setlement at
Kalaupapa are endeavoring to raiso
$500 for the purpose of building a
social hall and tho purchase of n pool
tablo and phonograph. They aro giv
ing concerts and have every prospect
of getting their share of the money
needed for tho improvements. Super
intendent J. D. McVeigh says, that
with what the folk of the settlement
could raise and with what friends
would contribute, about $275 would
be raised for the purpose set forth.
GOOD PROGRESS IN DITCH LINING
Good progress is reported on tho
work of placing the concrete lining in
the new Koolau ditch of the Hawa
iian Commercial & Sugar Company.
Most of the work in the open ditch in
the Keanao section is already fin
ished. There will bo almost twelve
miles of tho ditch waterproof, and it
will probably be a year or more before
the big job Is done. About 75 men nro
employed on the work.
FINED FOR ASSAULT.
Iona Kaal and Lul Kuulel, Hawaiian
fishermen who live at Waikapu, were
fined $10 each and sent to jail in lieu
of the cash for committing an assault
and battery on a camp boss at Puu
ncne camp No. 7. It is claimed that
the pair had been creating a disturb
ance In the camp, and when ordered
to leave by tho boss, indicated their
resentment by taking a few punches

The Sunday schools of Walluku dis
trict will meet In a general rally at
