Baseball Grounds Transformed Big
Line Of Wonderful Animals On Hand
Po'ice Asked To Assist
The Big Carnival will open with
a bang next Monday afternoon at 4:00
P. M. at. the baseball grounds in Wai
luku, and will keep up until midnight,
and possibly a little later. A street
parade of horribles, such as has nev
er been seen on Maui will precede
the big event. Th Zoo will be openea
at about 2 o'clock to allow the animals
to roam about Kahului and Wailuku,
but the management of the Carnival
has given the police assurance that
the lion, bears and wild animals will
be kept caged up. Maui has never
seen so many weird animals together
at. any lime.
The gates at the grounds will be
thrown op n at four o'clock. The dec
oration committee, headed by Sheriff
Crowi-11, will leave nothing undone
to show the visitors a symphony in
color arranged to match -the different
booth3. The "House of Fun" is com
plete, aiid a vaudeville extravaganza
has been prepared which will be well
worth the money. This will be a sort
of continuous performance.
There will be bands and music ga
lore, the electric Illuminations will be
grand, and gay costumes will abound.
Some of the best talent on Maui has
been engaged for the Spielers' Union,
and between this, fireworks and the
circus tent, there should not be a dull
moment for the affair.
The dance , pavilion is already in
place. This will be in charge of Miss
Mary Hoffman, and her orchestra will
furnish music well suited to the occas
ion. Ice-cream, coffee and lemonade
booths will be close by. Charles Lake,
chairman of the luau committee, says
he will have something unique, par
ticularly attractive to the stranger
within our gates. It is not generally
known that even in an affair of this
kind, sometimes a pawn-shop is a ne
cessity, so it has been arranged that
the familiar three-ball sign shall be
The Hawaiian and Portuguese
booths will be typical of the nations
they represent, while the flower, can
dy and fancy booth will be tastily dec
orated to suit. A zobo band has also
been engaged to furnish some of the
music, in case thhe regular music is
unable to stand the strain. Augustine
Pombo is ring-master of the Circus,
and will lead his band of wild ani
mals through the streets.
When the Carnival closes at about
midnight Monday, it will do so only
temporarily, as the grounds will again
be thrown open on Tuesday, July 4th,
at 6 P. M., when new vaudeville num
bers, etc. will be in order.
The object of the carnival is for
the improvement, of the St. Anthony's
Church, and the committee hopes for
liberal l llronagej. The principal
stores have consented to close duriug
the progress of the carnival, allowing
their employees opportunity to enjoy
the fun as well as others.
No Saloon Closing
For Fourth This Year
The license board at its meeting
yesterday voted down a motion to
have saloons in Wailuku and Kahului
closed between 9 a. m. and 4 p. m. on
the Fourth of July, Case and Lindsay
favoring it, Lufliin and Kaae opposing,
and Chairman Ben Lyons supporting
the negatives. The result will be
that contrary to the usual custom,
liquor will be sold the same on next
Tuesday as on any other day.
Molokai Choir Goes To
Defend Banner In Hilo
Between 80 and 90 delegates to the
big Hawaiian Evangelical conference
in Hilo, left Maui from Lahaina on
Wednesday night by the Mauna Kea.
They were joined at Lahaina by the
delegation of about 40 from Molokai.
The conference exercises began on
Thursday, and will continue most of
Perhaps the biggest(interest of most
of the delegates from all parts of the
territory centers in the two song con
tests between choirs of the different
Islands. For the past 2 years Molokai
has held the Kate Atherton banner
for putting forward the. best choir,
and If Molokai can win she will claim
the trophy permanently. However,
other choruses have been training
hard, and the results of the contest
can only bo guessed at before it is
over. Oahu is this year represented
by the splendid choir of Kaumakapili
church. The big contest takes place
next Thursday night. This year the
Sunday school association and the
Christian Endeavor societies will
have another contest by their singers,
on Tuesday night. This will be a new
feature of the conference.
