Senators Boost For
Appreciation Indicated Of Importance
Of West Wing Structure- McCIel
Ian Makes Strong Representation
How the Horn of $250,000 for the
const rucHon of the Kahului harbor
west wing breakwater passed the
Senate as an amendment to the rivers
and harbors bill. Is told In the verbat
im report of the senate proceeding In
the Concessional Record of May 23,
and Is Interesting reading to Maui
folk. The bill, so far as Is now known
Is still in the conference committee,
and unless the Item is stricken out
by the conferees it must soon become
available. Senators George E. Chamb
erlain, of Oregon, and Wesley L. Jones
of Washington, fathered the item
when it came up, and Senators James
E. Marline, of New Jersey, and Reed
Smoot, of Utah helped to boost it.
The record follows:
Mr. CLARKE of Arkansas: The a
mendment beginning at line 20, on
page 42 was also passed over. The
Senator from Washington (Mr. Jones)
desires to be heard on that question.
Mr. JONES: Mr. Fresldent, this is
the item with reference to Kahului
harbor on the island of Maui, In the
Sandwich Islands, an item in which
the Senator from Oregon (Mr. Chamb
erlain) too, Is very much Interested;
but I know he Is detained by business
of the Senate. So I want to present
just briefly the facts.
Of course this Territory has no rep
resentative in Congress, and I feel .Ins
tilled on that account in presenting
he matter here. Kahului Harbor Is
the harbor of the island of Maul, and
the only harbor on that Island, and the
only way of getting products from the
Island, of course, as we know. Is by
ships. The Crovernment has expended
some money there In the construction
of a breakwater. The expenditures
have up to June SO. 1915, amounted to
$390,000 and a little over. This Is
page 1591 of volume 1 of the engin
When this protect was adopted It
was adopted subject to the condition
that the Kahului Railway Co. should
cede to the United States free of cost
its property there. The report shows
that they have expended for wharves
and docks and on the breakwater and
harbor improvement some $304,784.
The commerce increased at this port
from $1,800,000 in 1908 to a little over
$13,000,000 In 1914.
In reporting on the new project, the
Board of Engineers say in their report
of this new project, on page 3:
The district officer reports that the
partiallv constructed breakwater has
ereatlv facilitated the handling of
freight, and greater protection Is ex
pected through the completion or trie
dredging provided for by the existing
project. He finds that the harbor is
subject to considerable shoaling, the
cause of which he traces to sediment
from the Iao River carried into the
harbor by the littoral currents. He
estimates the amount, of shoaling at
33.000 cubic vards per annum, that it
will cost at least $15,000 to remove it,
and that It seems possible that if th
harbor is enlarged the cost of main
tainance will be increased. He states
that a breakwater as proposed
(That is the one carried in the Item
in the bill )
would prevent the littoral current en
tering the harbor, and would therefore
check the deposit of material therein.
He estimates the cost of the break
water, including engineering, inspect
ion, and contingencies at $250,000.
So we will save by the construction
of this breakwater nearly $15,000 a
year in the matter of maintainance,
The district officer says that he thinks
that saving will justify this cost.
From the facts presented it appears
that the construction of the west
breakwater would be of some mater
ial benefit in reducing wave action in
thp harbor and would be of material
ndvantace in reducing the cost of
The board therefore concur in the
recommendation of the district officer.
I will sav that I was talking with
one of the commanders or captains of
r vessel a short time ago that goes in
and out of this harbor. He stated
that with the breakwater constructed
out as it is, the storms that sometimes
come there very greatly endanger ves
sels in the harbor, because there is a
sween in one direction through whien
the winds can come right into the
harbor. I do not know exactly the
direction, whether it is east or west
but he said his vessel war almost drlv.
en from its moorings and he had to
get out Into the ocean in order to save
the shin. The construction or tni
breakwater will very largely do away
with that difficulty and that danger.
Furthermore, it seems that with
these storms coming, with this one
breakwater running out into the oc
ean, which forms a sort of an eddy or
current around the shore, it makes it
also very dangerous for the vessels
that are at anchor there . With this
breakwater constructed as proposed,
that danger will be very largely done
away with. For these reasons I think
that this provision ought to be made,
I have here also a letter addressed

Big List Sure For
4th Of July Races
New Entries Possible For Trotting
Event Entries Close On 24th
Cowboy Stunts To Be Feature
Time for receiving entries for the
big Fourth of July races at Kahului
has been extended to June 24 -a week
from next Saturday. This same date
has also been fixed as the lime for
closing entries for the cowboy sports.
It was first intended to close the race
entries on the 11th, but the prospect
of getting a number of additional ent
ries from the coast caused the time
to be extended.
McT'heo and Locey, who returned
from Honolulu on Wednesday night,
are enthusiastic over the outlook for
Maui's big day. Practically all the
horses that made any showing at all
at the Kapioianl track last Saturday
and Monday, will bo entered, they say,
and besides two and possibly three
speedy steppers are expected to arrive
from the coast between now and the
Fourth to enter the trotting-paclng
event against Denervo. A number of
Honolulu horsemen, it is claimed,
have this project on foot.
It Is not known whether or not Tom
Hollinger will again be on hand with
Welcome Roy. Th e defeat in Hono
lulu last Monday by McPhee's pacer
was so decisive, that it is said Hollin
ger admits that Denervo is the best
25th INFANTRY BAND COMING.
Arrangements have been made for
the 25th Infantry (colored) hand to be
present, and besides playing for the
races the band is to play for a big
dance to be given at the Armory or
the Kahului I,yceum.
Angus McPhee is naturally well
satisfied with the showing his horses
made in the Honolulu races, and par
ticularly over Denervo. Dan Carey,
who piioted the big bay, is also feel
ing some swelled up over results, tho'
as some of the track men declared, he
did it so easily that he whittled a
stick during the final heat.
COWBOY SPORTS TO BE GREAT
Last New Year's inauguration of cow
boy sports as a feature in connection
with a race meet on the Kahului
track, has stimulated a lot of lively
anticipation among the riders of the
island, and there will be something
fancy doing on the Fourth, judging
from all the practising that is said to
be going on.on the quiet, back on tlu
ranches. There will also be some very
classy bucking horses this time, as
well as some wild cattle of a type that
will test the skill of the most expert
MANY HORSES IN TRAINING.
Most of the horses which raced in
Honolulu are already In training for
the Kahului meet. Col. Harry Raid-
win's string will arrive by tomorrow's
Claudine, and will at once begin
shaping up for the contest. Dener
vo and the rest of McPhee and I,ocey's
horses came back last Tuesday.
WOULD-BE DESERTERS DROWN
A life preserver from the Japanese
steamer Aikoku Maru, to which were
tied two pairs of boots, has been found
on Kahoolawe by Aina Kailipalouli, an
employe of Eben Low, and sent to Ho
nolulu. The significance is that the
Aikoku Maru, here from San Francis
co for Japan, May 7, reported that
while she was lying In the lee of Maul
for shelter from the high seas, three
men jumped overboard, two with pre
servers and one with a board in Maa-
laea bay. Finding the preserver,
marked with the ship's name, bears
out the story told here. The men al
most certainly were drowned as the
ship was more than a mile off Maui,
when they disappeared at night.
Submarines To Come
Back To Lahaina
Expected To Arrive Today To Com
plete Practice Two Torpedoes
Lost Men May Have Shore Leave
The four K type submarines which
returned to Pearl Harbor last week
after a week of battle practice off
Lahaina, are expected to return today
to complete the exercises, which It
seems were suspended on account of
Kamhameha Day. The boats, together
with the tender Alert, will probably be
in Lahaina waters for a week or more,
during which time tho crews of the
vessels may be given an opportunity
to see the sights of this island.
While practising with torpedoes
last week, two of these missiles were
lost ani efforts to locate them prov
ed unavailing. For some reason they
sank in about 180 feet of water. The
torpedoes are valued at about $5000
each, and it is likely that further eff
orts will be made to recover them.

The present season's pack is practi
cally all disposed of, and the demand
is increasing. The outlook for next
year's prices is for material improve

growers will receive $16.10 per ton
for No. 1 fruit this year against $11.25
paid last season. It is predicted by
at least one packer that the price
will be around $20 next year.
Within another week or two all the
Maui canneries will be in full blast
on the summer pack. In the Haiku
district the nualityof the fruit will be
somewhat better than for the past
two seasons, due to new planting
coming in bearing, but there is still
a large amount of small fruit from

Honolua Ranch Busy
Around on the Lahaina side, the
Honolua Ranch cannery began work
last week on a splendid crop which
will amount to about 15,000 cases.
This against 9.000 last year. This
concern grows practically all its

Bon, editor of the Hawaii Herald, gave
chase to a nocturnal visitor whom he
detected prowling mysteriously about
the Stevenson domicile in the Puueo
district Monday night. The editor
failed to catch his man but fired a
shot in the general direction of the

and a man hunt was organized, but the

were awakened by his shooting:
"One man thought war had been de
clared between the two F.nglish week

editors were gunning for each other.
"Another bright youth guessed that
