The 30th annual rare moot of the
Maul Racing Association, on the Four
th of July, was In many respccls one
of the most successful of the long list
of successful affairs seen on the Maul
trark. It was well attended, the rac
es for the most, part wore exciting,
and the crowd was orderly. It was
not Maui's lucky day, however .as far
as winning was concerned, for the
more important, events were won by
The time was generally slow, ow
ing to a heavy track caused hy rains
during the two previous days. The
weather overhead, however, was all
that could be desired, and by noon
the mud on the track was fairly well
Welcome Boy, Tom Hollingcr's big
bay, In his long scries of brushes with
his Maul rival Denervo, got revenge
for his had defeat In Honolulu on Ka-
mehameha day by taking three out of
four heats In the first race of the day.
Mcrhee's horse was driven by James
Cornwcll in place of Dan Carey, who
was disabled from his cut wrist of a
week before. He nosed out his rival
In the 3rd heat, after Welcome Roy
had held the lead from the start The
4th heat however, went to the visitor,
and the race was won and lost
Dr. Fitzgerald's Copra, after a lot of
fractious action before the race won
the second event, handsomely from
McFhee & Locey's Heidelberg and It
W. Shingle's Umpqua: and again in
the 8th race (half-mile dash) had no
difficulty In taking the purse from w.
A. Clark's Edwin, Young Lady having I
been scratched. I
The closest race of the day was the
V mile free-for-all running; in which
McPhee & Locey's Ypress nosed out a
victory from Senator Baldwin a Fran'
ces B. by so close a margin that no
one in the grandstand was certain
what the judges' verdict would be.
Frances B. led the' bunch from the
start but was overhauled by Ypress
on the stretch. Time, 1:21-4-5. Mrs,
Walter Dillingham's bay horse, One-
onta, ran a bad third .

bay filly, won In the 2-year-qld class

tators following the horse racing. In
the riding and roping contests staged
In front of the grand stand. In these
Harvey Raymond carried off the cham-
pionshlp In the amateur roping con
test, together with the Dig i&u. cup
There were no hitches In the racing
events, and the track officials all de
serve praise for the unusually exped
itious manner In which the events
were handled. Much of this was due
to the preparations made by Angus
McPhee and F. H. Locey. to whom the
track had been turned over for this
hv the Association. The
ludges and other officials received
many compliments for the satisfactory
work thev did. The Judges were w,
A Clark. H. Gooding Field, and F.ben
Low. D. Mooney, of Honolulu also
assisted the Judges. S. S. Paxson of
Honolulu, was starter; H. Gesner and
Mai. Bal were parole judges; Frann

Two Days Carnival
Was A Big Success
Hard Work Resulted In Generous Re
ward For WvorthIy Cause Kula
Man Wins Auto
Walluku had its first taste of car
nival in the big benefit, affair given by
Ihe St. Anthony's Church building and
improvement fund committee on Mon
day and Tuesday. And judging by the
big attendance in spite of a drizzle of
lin on the first evening, the taste was
appreciated. A big lot of credit for
the success of the undertaking Is
due to the committee which had work-
unremittingly for several weeks.
The big street parade on Monday
afternoon with a wonderful collection
of animals as features, and all marsh
aled by Chief Circus Manager J. f!ar-
cia, started the big stunt off in fine
spirit, which rain could not dampen.
A big crowd was in attendance thro.
out the time the various booths were
open, and something over $2500 was
realized, from which, however, vari
ous expenses are to be deducted.
Among the various features of the
affair, the "Old Hawaii" booth was
probably the moRt deserving of credit,
and was deservedly popular.
The winners of the various prizes
were John Miguel, Kula, Ford tour
ing car. Robert L. Heau, bicycle.

Pineapple Men Lose
Rainy Weather In Haiku Section Again
Interferes With Harvesting Crop
Homestead Roads Fairly Good
Pineapples are again rotting in the
fields beyond Haiku because of the
bad roads. After a series of vain at
tempts to get teamsters to haul fruit
at. as hish as $5 per ton. Manager A. F.
Tavares, of the Maul Pineapple Com
pany came to Walluku yesterday and
made an appeal to the board of super
visors for some kind of temporary
assistance. Chairman Sam Kalama as
consequence Is out. in the district
today to see what can be done In the
matter. The most of the trouble is on
the main belt road between Pauwela
and I'lumnlu, a distance of some two
or three miles. Little or no attention
has been given to this section, and
such as has been given has not been
of high etllcieney. The result Is that
there are many places that it Is almost
impossible to get an empty .wagon
The roads are not as bad as they
were two years ago when tons of
fruit rotted in the fields because the
roads were impassable, but several
weeks of wet weather with an aver
age of 4 to 5 Inches of rain per week,
has made conditions bad enough. In
the main section of the Kuiaha home
stead district, while some of the roads
have been bad, they have been gen
erally passable thanks to the fact that
the homesteaders themselves were
given the maintainance of some 12
miles of roads in their district, and
the results have borne fruit
It was talked In the board of super
visors yesterday of granting the same
privilege to interested residents of
other, sections, In hope that the plan
may work qually well as in the Kuiaha
Rush Season la On
The rush season Is on In the pine.
apple sections of Maui and all the
canneries are working about to capac
ity. A shortage of labor is In a meas
ure complicating the matter of har
vesting, as is the wet weather in the
Haiku district. Although the growers
are this year receiving about $16 per
ton for first class fruit at the can
neries, and $8 for Reconds, the farm
ers who are compelled to pay from $5
to $7 per ton for picking and hauling
are not due to see any great amount of
profit, with coRt. of production running
from $13 to $15.
Honolulans Plan To
Locate Old Iao Trail

pedition being an effort to enter Iao
Valley, in Maul, and follow an old trail
to Lahaina. There is no such trail
known now, but tradition says that in
ancient days Hawaiian had a pathway
by which they crossed the island of
Maul by a route through Iao Valley.
The trail if there ever was one Is en
It is considered possible that if the
old trail is discovered, it may be the
line of a new road across the Valley
Island. At the recent meeting of the
promotion committee In Maui, the
matter was referred to by L. A. 1 nurs

old trail would be relocated some day

of a road through a most picturesque

FORMER MAUI RESIDENT DEAD
Following a long Illness, Ben Men

cartoonist, died at half past ten last
Monday night at the home of his bro

at one time with The Advertiser and
his work is well remembered. He re

District .Magistrate Philip Pali, last
Saturday to answer a charge of vio
lating County Ordinance No. 33,
which makes it an offense to run
steam plow engines over county roads.
The plantation man in question was
alleged to have been responsible for
considerable damage to the surface
of the new oiled macadam road thro'
the p'antation, by running heavy plow
machinery over it. Valentine was dis
charged by Pa'i with a warning.
Maui Poloists Win
Easily From Oahu
Big Crewd Sees Interesting Game at
Keahua Dinner and Dance For
Visitors Follows Play
Starting off with a snap that prom.
Ised one of the most sensational games
In years, the Fourth of July polo game
at the Keahua field quickly slumped
to the mediocre, and wound up at the
end of the eighth period with a score
of 12', 4 to 2 in favor of the local four.
At least a part of the trouble was pro
bably duo to the horses of the Hono
lulu visitors being apparently out of
condition. A good deal had been ex
pected of this game, since the line
up of each team was the same as it
was two years ago in Honolulu when
ten periods were necessary to break
the tied score in a wonderfully bril

holiday crowd which repaired to the

Two badly damaged automobiles

Baseball Series Now
Likely Off For Good
After everybody believed that the
deadlock in local baseball circles had
been broken, and after the Maui Ath

sort of love feast and published an
other schedule beginning with a game
for next Sunday between Puunene and
Wailuku. everything is off once more.
Not only will there not be a game on
Sunday, but it is entirely probable that
there will be no regular series played
The trouble was thought to be set
tied when Foster Robinson, of the Pa
ia team, renounced his first determin
ation not to pitch at all if his brother
Alvin, now a resident of Puunene. was
not allowed to catch him. Now it
turns out that Alvin Robinson declines
to play with Puunene, and. Manager
