Relief Work Being
Most Ably Handed
ood and Clothing Furnished To All
Sufferers Problem Of Permanent
aid Now Being Worked Out.
The Walluku district relief commit-
top, which has been working; strenu;
ously during the past week in relicv-
ng the suffering caused by the storm,
has expressed its thanks to the com
munity for the many donations that
ave been made. At the present time
all necessary clothing has been sup
plied and there is plenty on hand for
he immediate future. The commit
ee is now studying the problem of
permanent rehabilitation, for those
who have lost everything, and this is
proving to be the most puzzling part
of the whole relief work. As soon as
some decision is worked out in this
connection, an announcement, will Tie
made, and funds will be asked as may
seem to be indicated.
The committee has found a total of
8 cases needing assistance Includ-
ng a tolal of 215 persons. In Its first
id work, 292 pieces of clothing have
men distributed, and orders'Vor food
given amounting to $601. No cash
has been given to any of the re
fugees. This list does not include Japanese,
who have been well looked after by
the Japanese community. It is re
ported that 180 cases of this nation
ality have receive assistance.
The Japanese have now made their
committee a subcommittee of the gen
eral relief organization, and in addl-
ion to N. K. Otsuka, C. D. AkimoH
has been added to thi scommittee.
The committee has handled all plan-
ation eases, and for these account is
being rendered to the plantations in
terested. The staff of the Alexander
House Settlement has been fully oe-
upied with the work, and the Salva
tion Army, through Ensign Puck, has
rendered most valuable service.

30 Inches Of Rain
In Three Days Time
Rain Sage In lao Tells Story of Cloud
burst That Carried Death and
Destruction Down Valley. Most
Probably In Few Hours.
Thirty indies Qf rain fell in
three dsiys on the table-lands of
lao Valley, (elevation ICOO feet)
at the time of the big Hood last
week. This was ascertained by
C. T. Bailey, of the hydrogra
phic survey, who had visited the
rain gage just, before the big
storm, and again afterwards.
The water in the gage must
have accumulated on Monday.
Tuesday and Wednesday of last
week, and the bulk of it prob
ably fell on Monday night and
early Tuesday morning, just pri
or to the tremendous rush of
water down the stream, which
came with such suddenness that
a dozen lives were lost and
scores of others had narrow es
capes. Some indication of how terri
fic must have been the down
pour in the upper part of the
valley, may be gained when it
is remembered that the heavy
rains in Wailuku during the
whole week ending noon June
20. amounted to but 12.42 in-,
dies. Probably not less than a
foot and a half of water was'
precipitated into the narrow
pocket of the upper valley dur
ing Monday night, a week ago,
to flow out almost instantly in
an overwhelming torrent.
Amazes Maui Typists
Considerable interest has been
aroused on Maui this week by O. H.
Blaisdell, a typewriter expert, who has
been in the Islands for several weeks
fn the interests of the Underwood
company. Mr. Blaisdell, who was the
winner of the world championship re
cord for speed, in 1910 and 1911, gave
demonstrations of his skill at the Wai
luku court house, the First National
Hank of Wailuku, and the Baldwin
National Bank, of Kahului, writing
from unfamiliar copy from 120 to 140
voids per minute, and near the same
number from dictation. A large num
bi r of persons watched each of these
exhibitions, with real amazement. The
International Typewriter Trophy,
which is a J1000 cup, has been con
tested for annually since 1907. The
trophy was supplied by the various
hading machine manufacturers. Mr.
lilaisdell has not been in the contests
for several years.

No Change In Death
List Ofj Big Storm
One Body Still Unrecovered May
Never Be Found, Kula Roads In
The body of the little 8-year old
Sodetani girl, who with her mother
and baby brother were nniang the
victims of the great lao Valley flood,
has not yet been found. The list of
dead from the disaster remains the
same as reported last week 13. All
of the bodies except that of the Japan
ese girl have been recovered and iden
tified. Although the stream bid has
been most carefully searched, no
trace ot It has been discovered, and it
will probably never be recovered. It
is resumed to have either been cov
ered with soil by the shifting of the
stream bed, or carried out to sea by
the rushing torrent.
The coroner's ury empaneled last
week to pass upon the deaths of the
various storm victims, was not as
sembled until this afternoon, in hope
of finding the last body. The jury find
ings win or course simply be a mat

Kula Road Still Impassable.
The road to Lahaina ws opened to
tralllo last Saturday, and while much
work remains to bo done in replacing
washed out bridges, and in other re
pairs, there are no serious difficulties
in traversing it. In Kula, however,
practically all bridges and many fills
were washed out, the roads are still
impassable in most' instances to ve
hicle tratllc, and the whole district Is
in a measure isolated.
lao Stream Again
Does Some Damage
Another Kona Rain Puts Water to
Dangerous Stage. Road to Laha-
ina Again Flooded Steamers Re
fuse to Land.
More kona weather, with strong
south-east winds at Lnlialna, and
heavy rains around Wailuku, caused a
good deal of inconvenience, but no
great amount of damage, Wednesday
and Thursday of this week. At Lahaina
the wind was so strong that the cap
tain of the Mauna Kea refused to
send a boat ashore, though several
passengers bound for Hilo, succeeded
in boarding the vessel from Gay's
launch, which also brought the mail
ashore. The .nail, for central Maui
however, did not get over until yes
terday, on account of the rains which
had again made the Lahaina road im
passable. The rain in the Wailuku district
was particularly heavy on Wednesday
afternoon and night, and lao stream
was on the rampage, but not to the
extent that it was during the disas
trous flood of last week. The water
however, arose to a dangerous height,
and fears were felt that the section
of town adjacent the Market street
bridge would again bo Hood-swept.
Water Works Crippled.
The temporary flumes for the Wai
luku water BUpply were carried out,
and have had to be replaced at some
cost and inconvenience. The Wailuku
Sugar Company's mill was compelled
to again suspend grinding because the
pipes supplying water to the mill were
carried out. A house belonging
to the same company, up the valley,
which had been badly damaged by the
first flood, was this time swept away,
but this loss is not great. No serious
damage to repair work under way was
done, due to vigilance and hard work
of plantation employes.
Saints Let Down In
Opening New Series
Waikapus Use White Wash Brush in
Good Shape Chinese Forfeit Game
The strenous strin of St. Anhonys
in winning in their championship
game with the Chinese on the 16th
last, proved faal to them last Sunday,
when they opened the second series
with the Waikapus, and were white
washed by a score of 6 to 0.
Kala I'elekai, tho slahster of tho
Waikapus, is doing good work and it
la mostly due to his pitching that his
team carried the long end of the
score in Sunday's game.
E. Uodrigues first pitched for the
Saints and his benders were some
what puzzling to the other side. Ho
held them down to three runs for six
innings when he was replaced in the
7th by "Blackie" Keehu, said to be
the best pitcher in the league. But it
was evidently his off day and the Wai
kapus found three runs off him in the
8th, making six runs altogether.
The Chinese did not appear on the
diamond to play the Asahis last Sat
urday for reasons unknown to the
Asahis. and Umpire Cummings de
clared the game forfeited to the Nip
Next Sunday the Saints and Asahis
will open the first game at 1 p. ni.,
while the Celestials and the Waikapus
will show their skill in the second
game at 3 p. m.
