ew Year's Racing
Was Great Success
Honolulu Horse Takes Money In Big
Event But Maui Horses Do Well In
Other Races Cowboy Sports Good
Maul's New Year's races and
frontier sports celebration was a
glorious success in very way except
from a money-making standpoint. In
tills last, however, the promoters of
the big enterprise, Angus Mcl'hee and
Frank H. Locey, are feeling good
over the fact that while they did not
make money, they at least broke
But the day was probably the big
gest one ever held at the Kahulul
track. Over 2500 paid admissions
were recorded, and best of all the big
crowd felt that It got Us money's
worth,. The racing was good, but
iftrnck was heavy from the recent
ins, and the time in all of the race
cnts was rather slow. The fact that
e Honolulu visitors took back the
irse in the big trotting and pacing
ee-for-all, won by Tom Hollinger's
'clcome Boy, and a good bit of Maul
toney besides this, did not dampen
me enthusiam of Maul sportsmen.
The amount of the purses paid
i mounted to between $1800 and $1900,
vhile the gate receipts totaled a lit-
tie over $2000. Other expenses and
, profits about off-set each other.
' While the failure of the excursion

lg to the fact that the men of the
ourth Cavalry were prevented from
oming by storm damage to their
uarters, there were about 100 visit

ji the success of the occasion.

The frontier sports events, which
ccupied most of the afternoon, fol
wing the race program, was a great
ovelty to the Maui audience, and it
s quite certain that this was but the
Irst of many more elaborate affairs

;ame was a new one, many ot the
best cowboys on Maui were a little
diffident at first, and it took some lit
i tie persuasion to get them Into the
spirit of the game. However, before

Worth O. Aiken, the Maul represen
tative of the Hawaii Promotion Com

members of the committee will hold
a meeting on Maul, January 15th to
17th inclusive. This will be the meet
ing which was to have been held here
In November, but Which was called off
at the last moment when several
members found it impossible to at

of the members will probably be here
this time They plan to come up on
the Claudine on Friday the 14th, land
ing the same night at Lahaina, and
coming over to Wailuku the following
day. The party will make the ascent
of Haleakala and will probably hold a
meeting in Wailuku on Saturday or
Monday. A dinner will probably be
given them on Monday evening, fol
lowing which they will leave to take
the Mauna Kea at Lahaina. Should
it be possible for the members to re
main over until Wednesday, it is
planned to take them over the ditch

It isn't every 6-months-old baby that
gets his picture (in his birthday suit)
reproduced on the front page of a
city newspaper, as a "New Year
Baby." But such is the distinction
that has overtaken the husky young
son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank M. Correa,
of Wailuku. Young "Sonny" seems to
have stolen a march on his parents,
who were greatly surprised to recog

the month, entries closing on the l&tn.
The cup is at present held by Collins
and Lindsay of the Paia club. It must
be won twice in succession by the
same team in order to be held perma

tested in this tournament, which is
open to all Maui players, and indica

when the time came, this proved to
be groundless, for there was some
very fancy demonstrations on the part
of the bad horses, that made lots of
excitement for the big crowd. David

in this contest as first prize, and J
Hardy got the second prize of $25

In the final contest Angus McPhee

Eben Low in a roping contest one
of the features of the day. Both of
these contestants are minus a hand,
and both are old timers at the game,
Mcl'hee roped and tied his animal in
1:37. The Honolulu roper, in a pre
vious contest in 1908 did the trick
in 1:6. McPhee, the year previous
to that at Cheyenne, Wyoming, made
the record, before he lost his hand
of 35 2-5 seconds, taking the cham
pionship. The contest last Saturday
was for a stake of $250, and the out
fit of the loser.
Japanese Were Scarce.
Owing to the fact that the Japanese
celebrate New Years differently from
other nationalities, there were very
few of this race at the races, although

Lead Grand March.
Between four and five hundred per
sons attended the big National Guard
ball at the Wailuku armory on New
Year's eve, and the affair was not only
one of the largest, but was probably
the most brilliant social function e er
given on Maul. Every part of Maul
was fully represented, and many vis

ent Brigadier -GenerHl Samuel I.
Johnson representing the Governor,
led the grand march, with Mrs. Harry
Penhallow, and the big armory
floor wa s thronged with animatec
dancers in this opening event. With
the smart white uniforms of the offi
cers of the Third regiment and the
scores of magnificent costumes of the
ladles , the scene was indeed a brill
iant and inspiring one. The dancing
continued until between two and
three o'clock of New Year's morning
Music was furnished by the 4th
Cavalry band and Miss Hoffman's or
chestra, alternating, and the floor was
crowded almost continuously. In
spile of the spaciousness of the ar
mory, which has just been enlarged,
the crowd of dancers was at times too
great for comfort.
Prior to the grand march a most
interesting program had been nr
ranged, consisting of several excellent
monologues by W. H. Hutton of Hon
olulu, who came up for the purpose
solo by H. W. Baldwin "Danny
Deever," a bayonet drill by Company
G, and an excellent Butt's manual of
arms drill by Company I (to music),
and a similar drill, but in silence,

The success ot the entire affair is
due in a large measure to the hard
work of the committee of officers who
had the preparations in charge. Capt.
W. H. Young was chairman of the

NEW YEAR'S EVE DANCE
AT COMMUNITY HOUSE
A very enjoyable New Year's Eve
dance was held at the Paia Commun
ity House, entertaining the members
of the younger social set. Pleasant
games, followed by dancing were ar
ranged by Mrs. H. A. Baldwin and
Mrs. F. A. Stevens. The rooms were
charmingly decorated, and with Gon
salves's orchestra rendering insplrinsr
music, the dancers about one hundred
in number, found the hour of closing
came far too soon.

court to cover costs In various ac

Magistrate Gay S. Goodness, of the
Makawao district. The suit involved
the return costs in five small cases,
and amounted in all to $5.40. Judge

50 cents, In two of the specifications,

McKay as attorneys.
Are Without School
Many Others in District Would Bene
fit By Model Health School Planned
Christmas a Glad Day For Them
Because there are at present eight
children In the institution who should
be in school, but have no opportunity
under present conditions, Dr. C. P.
Durney, superintendent of the Kula
Sanitarium, Is considering bringing
to the attention of the board of su
pervisors, at its next week's meeting,
the need of establishing a school at
th e sanitarium. Dr. Durney states
that there are perhaps 20 or 30
children in the district, who would
be benefitted by being in such a
school as he has in mind. The class
of children he refers to are such as
havpuberculous tendency, who are
anaemic, or otherwise not normal.
Should it be possible to have this
school established, Dr. Durney states
that he will plan to have the children
served with nutritious food, as a part
of their treatment, with the object
of building up their constitutions and
checking possible development of
tuberculosis or other disease.
While there are but 8 children pa
tients actually in the hospital at the
present time, Dr. Durney expects, now
that the new women's and children's
ward has been completed, and facili
ties increased, that the number of
children will soon be considerably in
creased. If the county can see its
way clear to build the small school
building and a teacher's cottage, it
will probably be easy to get a com
petent instructor appointed by the
Bright Christmas At Kula.
In spite of torrential rains, Christ
mas day at the Kula sanitarium was a
very bright one for all of the unfor
tunates. This was due largely to the
efforts of Mrs. Harry Baldwin, Mrs.
Frank Baldwin, and Mrs. Harold Rice,
who saw to it that every patient was
bountifully remembered. Every one
received real Christmas presents, and
every one appreciated the fact. There
was a fine Christmas tree in the new
H. C. & S. ward, and James Cumming,
of Paia, did the Santa Claus stunt in
distributing the gifts, to perfection.
The children of the sanitarium gave a
pretty little program of songs and re
citations. SCHOOL LECTURE COURSE

Plenty of Liquor But
Not One Drunk At Races
With one of the biggest
crowds assembled in the history
of Maul, there was not a single
drunken man observed at the
races at Kahulul on New Year's
"This is probably the first
time in history that such a
statement can be made," says
Sheriff Clem Crowell. "It Is not
a case, this time, of saloons be
ing closed .for there was no re
striction on the sale of liquor.
The Kahulul saloon was entire
ly empty of customers at vari
ous times during the day. It
was simply a case of the people
not wanting liquor. There was
not an arrest made during the
day. A similar state of affairs
is reported also from liana and
from Lahaina. It was an ex
ceedingly quiet New Years, as
far as the police court is con
cerned." PRETTY HOME WEDDING.
A quiet home wedding was solem
nized on New Year's evening, at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Hart
of Wailuku, when their daughter, Miss
Louisa Keohi Hart became the bride
of Mr. George William Weight, of
Hilo. The ceremony took place at 6
