In National Park
New Bill Before Congress Takes In
21,150 Acres Of Maui Mountain
Top Congressmen Favor to Plan,
A fact of much interest and import
ance to Maul, though not generally
known, is that in H. D. 9525, now be
fore congress, Haleafcala is included
in the boundaries of the proposed
Hawaii national park, for the estab
lishment of which the measure would
provide. On February " the House
committee on public lands held a
hearing on the bill, at which time
Prof. Thomas A. Jaggar, Delegate
Kalanianaole, Judge Iiallou, and Sec
retary Desha spoke on behalf of the
project at much length. So far as is
known, the committee has not report
ed. The original bill did not
in elude Hale aka la,
but only the area on the Dig Island
including the craters of Kilauea and
Mauna Loa. The present bill, intro
duced on January 20, takes in prac
tically all of the upper slopes of
Haleakala, and includes an area of
21,150 acres. According to the report
of the hearing, the committee appear
ed to be very favorably disposed to
the idea, and indicatedthat all it
wanted to be assured on was the
cost of upkeep to the federal govern

Russian Girl Is Backed By Mother
And Succeeds in Marrying Filipino
of Her Choice.
When a girl wants to marry a man,
paternal favor doesn't have very
much weight, and particularly so
when the girl is backed by her moth
er. At least this was so in the case of
16 year old Bessie Kozlk, acomely
Russian girl of Keahua, who was de
termined to marry Arsenio Abellana,
a less comely Filipino, of Hamakua-
poko. When the girl and her parents
and her fiance appeared before

that the father was not pleased with
the match. He protested vigorously,
and offered the Filipino $200 if he
would leave the country without
his (Ibughter. The feirl, however, was
backed by her mother, who gave
the necessary consent, and the li
cense was issued in spite of Tapa
Kozik. The couple were later wed by
the Rev. L. C. Kaumeheiwa.
St. Patricks Tea To
Be Given Bj High School
The pupils of the Maui High SchQol
are arranging to give their annual tea
on Saturday Mar. 18. It is to be a
St. Patrick's" Tea and the program
will cGntain a number of Irish se
lections. Members of the freshman
class will give for a part of the pro
gram, a one act farce called" The
Practical Joker". There will also be
music by the High Scho0l orchestra
and singing by the Glee Club.besides
On account of the fact that in pre
vious years the Schnol building has
proved too small to accomodate the
attendance it has been decided to
give the tea this year at the Paia
The sch0ol is divided Into Commit
tees for the affair as follows; PrQ
gram.seniors and juniors; Decoration,
sophmores;; Refreshment, freshmen;
Finance, the entire school.
The proceeds from the tea are to
be used to help defray the graduating
expenses of the reception which is

Militarism To Be Avoided
Now, it is not desirable that the
whole population be formed into a per
manent militia. Such a policy of de
fense would invite militarism. How
ever, if every able-bodied man would
spend a small part of his time fami
liarizing himself with the rudiments
of the science of war and training
himself in the effective use of the
more common weapons of modern
warfare , the defense of the nation
would be assured. Every citizen
should find time for such training and
should consider it his duty to be pre
So, in reviewing the duties of
citizen of the United States, we find
that a man must be loyal, must have
a fair education and must take
part in the work, the government and
the defense of the nation. But the
person who merely performs his pre
scribed duties, is following the path
of least resistance, and is no true citi
zen, for he has no real concern for his
country's well-being. The true Amer
lean, on the other hand, is unselfish
and is willing to sacrifice personal
ambition in the performance of any
act that involves the welfare of the
Herein lies the difference between
the ordinary man and the true citizen,
which is not one of wealth, power,
influence or learning, so much as of
patriotism and an unselfish devotion
to one's country.

Scarcity Of Fruit
May Cause Planting
Prospect of Better Prices For Pine
apples Likely to Stimulate Opera
tions in Haiku District.
The shortage of this season's pine
apple pack, which it is estimated will
be about one fourth less than last
vear, and the prospect next year
and the year following will sec even
a greater falling off, has renewed the
hope of Maui growers that prices will
be materially improved. This pros
pect wilt probably stimulate planting
in he Haiku district to a very consid
It is expected that a meeting of the
homesteaders with the management
of the Haiku Fruit and racking Com
pany will be held within a few days,
at which time it is believed that the
growers will be given some better as
surance than they have had in the
past that they will get a fair price for
their product. Some form of a guar
antee that they will receive not less
than $15 per ton, will probably be ask-
by the farmers. The cannery at
present is buying the larger part of
its fruit, and it is understood was able
to make a snuill profit on this, al
though the growers lost heavily. The
disinclination of the growers to
plant much in the past year, however,
has caused the Haiku company to in
crease its own acreage by several
hundred acres. A hui of homesteaders
however, has recently planted about
acres, being financed in part in
this by the cannery.
May Put Mauna Kea
On Once a Week Run
Company Claims Business Does Not
Justify Present Service Hilo
People Patronize Big Boats.
It is reported on authority from
Honolulu, that the Inter-Island steam-
Mauna Kea, will probably soon be
put on a weekly schedule to Hilo in
stead of the semi-weekly one which
she has maintained for several years.
If this is done, the Saturday sailing
up, and return past Lahaina Monday
night will be cut out. Hilo people
are making a big protest, but the com
pany claims that the run is not a pro
fitable one, and that Hilo people are
given to patronizing the big vessels
when opportunity offers, which is
still further cutting into the business,

GOOD GISOWING WEATHER. ..
Good, heavy rains this week
in the Lahaina district, as well as on
the windward side of the island.prov
ed very timely and welcome. Plant
ing in the Kuiaha and Makawao dis
tricts had been considerably interfer
ed with by the dry weaher of the past
three weeks. The season generally
has been favorable, however, and the
corn and other crops already planted
are in very promising condition.
TWO GAMES OF POOR BALL,
.Two loose and uninteresting games
of ball were those played at the Wai
luku park last Sunday. The Chinese
were so late in arriving that but six
innings of the first game were played,
but in this brief time the score stood
15 to 5 in favor Df the Chinese and a
gainst the Waikapus. In the second
game the St. Anthony's defeated the
Asahis by a score of 6 to 2.
Next Sunday's game will be 1.
tween the Chinese and Saints, for the
first event, and the Waikapus and
Asahis will play second. A better
brand of ball is expected.
Sending Filipinos Io Coast.
According to the Honolulu rapers,
O. A. Steven, who recently conducted
a campaign to sell laud in California
to local Portuguese, now has a
scheme to send 3000 Filipino laborers
from Hawaii to the Imperial Valley,
California. By the last Great North
ern, it is said, 35 Filipinos departed
for the coast, presumably to spy out
the promised land for their fellow-

Violinist To Play On Maul.
Maui is promised a real musical
treat in the concerts to be given
this evening at Lahaina, and on Sat
urday evening at the Wailuku Orph
eum by Mr. George Caspar, the Hun
garian violinist, assisted by Mrs.J. C.
Villiers as accompanist and Mr. H.
Washburn Baldwin, as vocal soloist.
The war in Europe, which upset his
plans, is primarily responsible for the
presence of Mr. Caspar in the Isl

musical critics that he is one of the
very finest performers on the violin
that has ever been heard In Hawaii
Several persons in Maui who have
