ALL ISLAND FAIR.
Now (lint t ho County of Maui lias
takon up tlic idea of a County Fair
ami Hawaii is Retting ready for the
second show of the same kind, would
it not seem to he a Rood scheme to
interest the people of all the islands
in a proposition of having an inter
island fair every year at a central
spot? The rivalry that would bo in
troduced through the competition that
surely would arise between tin- differ
ent islands of the group would add to
the zest of the big- agricultural and
industrial exhibition, and the good
work of instructing island folk as io
what the different countries can pro
duce would surely result in much good
The big all-island fair could be held
in Honolulu or Ililo. Kxhibits from
every island in the group could be
shown. Live stock of nil description
could be stalled and every possible
kind of agricultural product could be
exhibited. Trotting and pacing hors
es could give exhibitions; ponies of
all sizes could compete for prizes, and
dogs, chickens, hogs and other live
stock could be benched or stalled by
their proud owners.
Hilo has. shown the way as regards
county fairs, nnd has been followed
by Maui, where a show is to be held
this year. The other islands will,
probably, follow suit. A big inter
island fair would cap everything, and
the thought is well worth nourishing
so that some time in the future such a
show may be held. The benefit to the
grower of produce and the raiser of
live stock cannot be overestimated.
There are thousands of people in
these islands who have no idea of the
possibilities that exist in the way of
farm products. An inter-island fail
would advertise the fact that almost
anything is possible in the Hawaiian

Islands, and would nlso build up a
connection between the producer and
the consumer in a wny that would
open the eyes of most people.
Next September, when the Hawaii
Second County Fair opens, a display
of exhibits will be given that will sur
prise the visitors from Oahu, Kauai,'
and Maui. Those few hundred peo
ple will, of course, carry the news
back home but. if an inter-island fair
were hi Id each year, thousands in
stead of hundreds of dwellers on the
islands of the group , would become
better acquainted with tlielr homeland
and the result would be just what the
islands need home production and
far less imported stuff. Hawaii Herald.
Honolulu is to be congratulated on
obtaining the wise counsel of a man
like F. M. Hatch in her city adminis
tration. The new supervisor is prob
ably aging a good deal now, but
there was a time when he had more
brains nnd executive ability than the
entire city goveriuncnt of Honolulu
combined. But we feel sorry for
Hatch. Groat and good and valuable
as he has been in critical times in the
past, he is now destined to be dragged
in the slough of Honolulu' politics;
and in less than six months, perhaps,
will have learned the reason at first
hand why decent men elevate their
noses and turn the other wny when
public olliee in the city is mentioned.
Yesterday, the transport carried a
way from the Island the author of the
YVhitener Report. Why not then for
get it and resume the good work of
making the National Guard of Hawaii
the best as it is now the biggest
comparatively speaking in the Unit
ed States? Advertiser.
Waikapus Went To Sleep
And Score Is Tied
Th- "ourth game of the champion
ship series of the winter league, play
ed last Sunday, was a one-sided af
fair, and the Waikapu lost the chance
they had of winding up the agony nnd
claiming the cup. The score was 11
to 3 in favor of the Saints, thus tying
the score, 2 to 2. No particular
reason is assigned for the bum brand
of ball put up by the Waikapus, ex
cept that it was their off day.
Next Sunday the final game will be
played, and a good deal of interest is
being manifested in it. The Waika
pus claim they have their fighting
cloths on once more, and that they
will have no trouble in turning the
trick. In any event the game will
probably be worth watching.
Maui County Officials
Convene On Molokai
Practically all of Maui county's of
ficial family was on Molokai this week.
Chairman Sam Kalnma and Supervis
or Druniniond stopped off there on
their way back from attending the
convention in Honolulu, as did nlso
Auditor Wilcox, who seized 1 ho op
portunity of auditing some of the Mo
lokai ollicial's books. Supervisor
Dave Fleming also made the trip on
Wednesday, as did County Attorney
Ilevins, Sheriff Crowell, and County
Engineer Cox. The whole parly re
turned last njght. via Fleming's
sampan route. The supervisors haw
been planning a trip to the island for
some time past to look into the vari
ous charges and counter-charges
which arc hurled before the board
every month by the various unl'i ieiully
factions, in form of petitions, letters,
and other forms of complaint.
Sheriff Crowell is still hoping to
find a clue to the missing Chinese
Wong Wai Hound, who disappeared
several weeks ago, and who is now
believed to have met foul play.
