Hllo Is to be complimented on the
work she is already doing by way
of preparation for the Civic Con
vention, which will be held in that
city, presumably about September.
The Civic Convention has developed
Into a very large institution, and a
considerable percentage of Its suc
cess in future will depend upon ad
vance work of program-making. Ka

Spending $20,000 and disturbing
the whole country in order that six
or seven thousands of dollars may be
appropriated to piece out the expens
esof the Honolulu circuit court oc
curs to us as about the results to be
expected from a special session of
the Legislature. We are not oppos
ing the idea of a special session, but
wish first to have a better reason for
it than has yet been put forward.
There is a vast difference between
the alleged "British war plotting"
and the other brand. There is a very
distinct difference between paying a
man's fare back to a country where
he can take a man's chance of kil
ling or being killed, and In paying a
man to dynamite a building and kill
women and children in the smash.
If volunteers wish to go back and
fight for their country and can secure
transportation, as the friends of the
Allies can, it Is their lookout. How
many subjects of the Central Em
pires would be compelled to go back
and fight, it the transportation prob
lem did not bar them from traveling
almost anywhere on water?
HANA TO HAVE A HOSPITAL.
The board of supervisors this
week adopted & resolution looking
to the establishment of a hospital
for the liana district. The chairman
was authorized to locate a suitable
site for this much needed institution,
and to report at the next meeting
of the board.
ENTHUSIASTIC OVER FAIR IDEA.
"I hope the Maui people will not
want to monopolize their fair to the
exclusion of people from the other
islands," said D. P. R. Isenberg, of
Honolulu, who is spending a few
weeks on Maui as the guest of Har
old Rice. "Because I for one would
like to be an exhibitor. I have some
fine young bulls that I should like
much to enter, and perhaps some
other live stock, if I am not barred
by the rules,"
. Inasmuch as there have been no
rules made as yet, it is entirely prob
able that when they are perfected
he will find that his entries will be
Next Thursday will probably see
the formal launching of the Maui
County Fair proposition. At 2 o'
clock that afternoon it is expected
that representatives of many organi
zations, and individuals from differ
ent parts of the county, who are la
terested in the matter, will meet In
the district court room in Wailuku
and appoint an executive committee
to have general charge of the under
taking. At this time also some gen
eral idea of the scope of the prop
osition will probably be decided upon.

In spite of a terrific downpour of
rain, the meeting last Saturday was
attended by some thirty members
and others, and while no attempt
was made to organize, it was clear
that sentiment was very strongly
in favor of the fair idea. It was
thought best that the chamber avoid
any appearance of wishing to monop
olize the undertaking, and for that
reason a general public meeting was
decided upon, and set for next Thurs
day. At this time it is hoped that
the fair may be definitely launched,
independently of the chamber,
