Maui County Fair
WAILUKU, MAUI, T. II., APRIL 28, 1916.
No Fraud At Hana
Men Voted By Proxy Were Honestly
Voted Will Go To Convention With
Case if Necessary Paia a Raw Deal
That the liana election wag Irregul
ar, but no fraud, ia the admission and
contention of Dr. J. II. Raymond, the
Buccessful candidate as deleRato from
Maui to the democratic national con
vention. Dr. Raymond states that it
is a fact that 35 votes were cast by
proxy at liana, which is against the
party rules, and he has a certified list
of the names of the persons whose
names were thus voted. There is no
question, he declares, that the proxies
were voted In accordance to the
wishes of the persons giving them.
The same democrats had previously
signed the petition for his nomination,
in almost every case, is also declar
ed. On the other hand Dr. Raymond
asserts that the 41 ballots cast at
Paia were irregular in that there is no
record of any precinct club existing
there, nor of any election being held
there. The returns from I'aia how
ever, showed 41 to 0 in favor of al
most all of the McCandless faction
The democratic territorial central
committee, according to reports from
Honolulu, will Investigate the alleged
irregularities in the Maui voting. Dr.
Raymond says that such investigation
cannot unseat him, and that the local
county committee must grant him a
certificate of election. In any event
Dr. Raymond will be present at the
St. Louis convention prepared to
make his fight before the
national committee on credentials,
should it be necessary. He expects to
leave for the coast next week, where
he will join his family and make a
several months tour of the eastern
states before returning home.
Live Stock Will Be
Big Feature Of Fair
Much Interest In High Bred Animals
On Maui Presages Fine Exhibits
Other Islands May Compete
The live stock exhibit at the Maui
County Fair, next Fall is going to
be one of the surprises of the big
event except to those who have been
closely in touch with what has been
going on in this line on Maul for the
past several years. In the beef cattle
class it is quite certain that all of the
principal ranches of Maui will have
some fine specimens to show, because
there has been some big improve
ments in this class of cattle in the
past few years. Paul Isenberg, of
Honolulu has also indicated his in
tention of bringing some nf his high
grade bulls over for competition, and
it is possible that other island breed
ers will also be represented. In the
dairy cattle line it is also probable
that a good showing will be made.
James Lindsay, of Haiku, Dr. J. C.
Fitzgerald, and Harold Rice, all have
some superior animals of this type to
Hogs will also be a feature. D. T.
Fleming, of the Houolua ranch has a
fine berkshire boar or two, while Dr.
W. D. Baldwin and Harold Rice, are
enthusiasts over their Hampshires.
Sam Baldwin also has some fine Duroc
Jerseys which may be shown.
Horses will doubtless f0rm an in
teresting class. L. von Tempsky has
has some fine colts, and half a dozen
other ranches, which have been speci
alizing in horse breeding will probably
have entries worth looking at.
The recently organzied poultry as
sociation is also planning to Bh()w
what Maul can do in the way of fine
Fight In Court Begun
For Japanese Child
Application for writ of habeas corp
us was filed in the second circuit
court last week by Yataro Hashimoto
with view of recovering possession of
Matsuyo Hashimoto, a minor female
child of the petitioner, now in the
custody of Geuosuke Okamotu, of Ho
nolulu. The petition alleges that the
girl is being illegally held by the Ho
nolulu man, and is being trained as a
geisha dancer with a view to his profit.
It is understood that the defendant
claims that the child was legally
adopted, and that the father therefore
has no just claim to her.
In the court yesterday morning, a
motion of the defendant, through his
attorney Eugene Murphy, for $35 as
traveling and transportation costs to
enable him to attend the hearing, was
allowed by Judge Edings. The plaint
iff in the case is represented by At
torney E. R. Bevins.
Maui Horses To Be
Feature Of Meet
Denervo To Brush With Welcome Boy
Once More Frank Bajdwin To
Enter Pony Dandy
That Maul is to play an important
part in the race meet to be held in
Honolulu on Kamehameha Day is in
dicated from reports coming up from
the metropolis. The meet is to cover
two days, Saturday, June 10, and Mon
day, June 12. The Advertiser has the
following to say as to what is expect
ed of Maui horsemen in the event:
The races for Hawaiian-bred, Japanese-owned
horses are attracting
much attention among Japanese, both
here and on Maui, and the gray mare
which won the Japanese race at.
Spreckels Park on New Year's Day,
will be sent to Honolulu for the com
ing meeting, and will number among
her opponents a couple of smart
Warning colts from Waialua.
That Frank Baldwin is interesting
himself in the coming meet is evi
denced by the fact that he intends en
tering his fast pony Dandy in the polo
pony race. Dandy will, in all pro
bability be ridden by Sam Baldwin.
Dandy is by Royal F.
It is doubtful if the 2:15 class har
ness race will be placed on the pro
gram, as the only entry in sight at
present is John T. Silva's Harold D.
Word comes from Maui that Maui
Boy will not be entered and Luke
Rogers is said to have changed his
mind about entering his bay pacer.
A wireless has been received from
Maul that Denervo will be entered in
the free-for-all harness race. Angus
McPhee, owner of the Maui crack, has
been appealing for half-mile heats, or
if mile heats, only two in three, in
stead of three in five. The association
refused to acquiesce and now McPhee
declares that he will race his horse
here next June, whether or no.
Denervo vs. Welcome Boy
Denervo and Weloome Boy have
met six times In local tracks, twice
at Kapiolani park and four times at
Spreckels park, Kahului. Denervo
has won four races and the Hollinger
pacer two. In July, 1914, Welr-ome
Boy defeated Denervo In the Maui
free-for-all, after the McPhee horse
had stepped a sensational first heat
in 2:12. Last July Denervo turned
the tables on his conquerer at Kahu
lui but on New Year's Day, on the
same track, Welcome Boy easily de
feated the son of Demonio.
McPhee, by the way, would appear
to be branching out In the racing
game, for report has it that he has
purchased three runners on the Coast,
which will arrive by the next boat
and which will be entered at the
Opening Of Series
Set Forjay 14th
Three Teams Will Make Up league
Athletic Association Makes Final
The opening game of the Maui
baseball season will be played on the
Wailuku grounds on Sunday, May 14,
The game will be between the new
1st Battalion, N. G. H. team and the
Paia team, present holder of the fa
mous Raymond Cup.
At the meeting of the Maui Athletic
Association last Tuesday night, the
Puunene team, under management of
M. G. Paschoal, made its formal entry,
and the entries were declared closed.
This makes it again a three-team
league, since Lahaina was apparently
not able to get up steam enough to
get in this year, as had been hoped.
The association fixed the dates of the
first three games of the series, and
the others will follow in the same
sequence. Following the game be
tween the National Guard and Paia, on
May 14, the 1st Battalion will meet
Puunene on the 21st, and Paia and
Puunene will play on the 28th.
At Tuesday evening's meeting, G.
R, Cummlngs was made grounds man
ager for the season, and Manuel Ol
mos was elected official umpire. The
handling of the gates is to be under
a new plan, this season, each team
manager to be put In charge for one
month. It is believed that the rivalry
between the managers to keep ex
penses down and boost receipts will
be watched with intef'st., George
Cummings takes the first try under
the new plan.

Sheriff Clem Crowell has suspended
the officer, pending what he says is
to be a full investigation of the mat

The sale of the ranch lands In Ma

yesterday approved by Judge Edings
in the second circuit court. The
property was sold v at auction last
Saturday morning, on order of the
court, to Harold W. Rice at his bid of

Makawao would try to secure the

acres of land, and the upset price was
fixed at $40,000. The price paid does
not include live stock now upon' the
property. The trustee, W. T. Robin

time it has not been paying a fair
return on its valuation. .. The sum re
alized, which is generally considered
a very fair one, is to be reinvested
for the benefit of the estate by ap

Kalama Has War
Shock Off Molokai
Almost Bumps Submarine, But Is Re

concerting Experience He Says
Almost ramming a submarine,
which appeared suddenly from le
neath the waves and directly in hfcs
course but a few lengths ahead, was
the exciting experience of Chairman
Sam Kalama, of the Hoard of Super
visors, while on his way to Molokai
yesterday morning. Mr. Kalama, was
making the trip in Dave Fleming's
sampan from the Honohia ranch, ac
cf)mpanied by a Japanese boatman
A heavy rain was falling, and a chop
py sea was running. Suddenly the
gray body of the submarine appeared
dead ahead to the intense astonish
ment of Kalama and his crew, who at
first took it to lie a whale.
Sam says that for a little bit he
thought he was in the war zone, and
that his sampan was a neutral merch
antman. Then the hull of the sub
marine opened, and the crew of real
American bluejackets came out and
gave him the laugh, which dispelled
Another submarine also made its
appearance. They proved to be two of
the K class under-sea fighters from
Pearl Harbor, which were out on a
practice cruise. Kalama returned to
Wailuku this morning.
High Freight Rates
Boost Lumber Prices
Freight Charters Year Ago $5.50 Are
Now $15 or $16 Price of Lum
ber Lowest on Maui
A 200 per cent advance in the
freight rates for lumber from the
Puget Sound ports together with a
general advance in the price of this
article at the mills, accounts for the
recent sharp advances noted in the
Islands in the past few months. And
the end is not yet. Merchantable
Nor'west lumber which six months
ago sold in Kahului at about $25 per
thousand, is now listed at $28.50; and
the same lumber in Honolulu is sell
ing at $32.50. The Star-Iiulletin, after
investigating the situation has the fol
lowing to say on the subject:
"At present charter rates for lumber

Douglas lir was raised from $30 to
