The Fallacy of Paraffine
Base: Eastern oil manufac
turers have long extolled
the superior virtues of paraffine
base motor oils. But Pacific Coast
motorists have proved that Zero
lene, made from selected Califor
nia crude, asphalt-base, gave best
results. Their experience is now
supported by the testimony of in
ternational experts. Lieut. Bryan
stated before the Am. Soc. of Naval
Engineers: "Oils made from the
asphalt-base crudes have shown themselves better
adapted to motor cylinders, as far as their carbon
forming proclivities are concerned, than are paraf
fine -base Pennsylvania oils." Zerolene received
highest competitive awards, San Francisco and San
Diego Expositions. Dealers everywhere and at service
stations and agencies of the Standard Oil Company.

At The Theaters
As the result of b city-wide cam
palRn in Chicago to expose exhibitors
who show unclean pictures, the Wom
en's Political Equality League of
that city has just issued a report giv
ing V.L-S-E first, place In percentage
of clean plays produced.
The Wailuku Orphettm shows a V-L-S-E
feature every Sunday.
Theda Itara is allowed but a short
vacation between pictures, appearing
again next week in her most recent
screen offering and one which shows
her in a role that is entirely foreign
to anything she has yet been seen in
here, "THE TWO ORPHANS". In
this rhotodrama Theda Bara is seen
as a type of good, pure girl consid
erable of a contrast to the loathsome
vampire parts that patrons have come
to associate with this talented artist.
"THE TWO ORPHANS', is a drama
that has probably been seen by a
large percentage of Maui theatergoers,
having been a strong favorite during
the past quarter of a centurv.
"THE CALL OF THE CUMBER
LAND", "MY LADY INCOO.", and
"UNTO THOSE WHO SIN" .are
three other exceptional plays billed
for the Orpheum-Lyceuni Circuit, for
the coming week.

MAUI PINEAPPLE PACK
TO BE SHORT
While the pineapple season is on
in full force on Maui at present, the
Haiku canneries are only working at
about half their rated capacity, ow
ing to the shortage of the crop. The
pack this season in the district will
probably not amount to over 200,000
cases of which the Haiku Fruit &
Packing Company will put up about
125,000 cases ,and the Maui Pineapple
Company the other 75000. On the
Honolua Ranch on the Lahalna side of
the Island, a pack of about 15.000 cas
es is indicated.

CURTIS BOOSTER FOR HAWAII.
Honolulu's delegation at the big Ad
Club convention in Philadelphia decor
ated with leis the president because
he is the president andJohn Wana
maker, great merchant and great ad
vertiser and decorated Cyrus H. K.
Curtis because he is not only Cyrus H.
K. Curtis but one of the best boosters
Hawaii ever had.
A few days ago when the Star-Bul
letin was preparing to send to Mr. Cur
tis' paper, the Philadelphia Public
Ledger, a special news service from
Hawaii just for the sake of Hawaii
folk at the convention, Mr. Curtis
wirelessed here to make sure that ev
erything was "all set" for the service.
When informed also by wireless
that it was, he shot back the following
marconigram: ''Thanks for assurance
of news service. Enormous demand
and clamor for it, perhaps due to my
alking.booming, boasting, bragging",
and perhaps unconscious lying about
your wonderful city".

County Loses First Round
In Fight On Hart's Bond
In the two suits of the territory
against the bondsmen of Edmund
Hart, former circuit court clerk,
which came up before Judge Edings
for hearing in chambers yesterday i
morning, the court sustained the de.
frndants on a plea in bar, the con
tention being raised that the statute
by which the court may act in cham
bers 'n F'.uh matters, does not cov r
the case of Hart'sbondsmcn.
County Attorney Bevins noted an
appeal in the matter and will seek an
opinion from the supreme court. In
case the decision of the higher tri
bunal sustains Judge Edings, another
suit will be instituted, Bevins states.
Lorrin Andrews, of Honolulu, appear
ed with Eugene Murphy as attorney
for W. T. Robinson and A. Garcia, the
two bondsmen who are making a
fight. Both of these men were on
Hart's bond at the time of his arrest,
and the amount of shortage under
this bond is about $1800. Robinson is
also one of 4 bondsmen on a former
bond of Hart's. All of these except
he admitted their liability nnd have
paid all but some $300 of (he amount.
These bondsmen were F. F. Baldwin,
Phi Cockett and W. L. Pecoto. It is
rumored that the defense in the mat
ter of Hart's second bond will be that
it was accepted by the territory with
the knowledge that Hart was already
short in his accounts.
On the Other Islands
Backs Up The Browns
The educational committee of the
Kauai chamber of commerce, compos
ed of T. Brandt, A. H. Waterhouse,
and Dr. K. Hofmann, returned a re.
port in the matter of Mr. and Mrs. H.
C. Brown, who were not re-appointed
as principal and teacher of the Wai
mca school, the gist of which is as
"Your committee finds in the case
of Mr. Brown that the charge against
him is extremely trivial and that jus
tice and fairness demand that he
should be reinstated or given an equal
ly important school if the department
feels that such a transfer is desirable.
"As to Mrs. Brown, we find that her
many years of unexampled devotiop.
zeal and ability devoted to teaching
in this Territory entitle her to the
greatest possible amount of consider
ation and at all events we con
sider it her absolute right to be heard
by the commissioners in her defense.

Platform Convention Next Week
The republican territorial platform
Convention will meet in Honolulu
next Monday. It is understood that
a compulsory military training plank
will be urged, and there Is certain to
be a fight over the Honolulu city char
ter matter. There is also a plan to
demand more territorial 'authority ov
er the public schools, and the indust
rial schools are to get strong backing.
William Thompson is reported to be
likely as chairman of the territorial
committee, succeeding Lorrin And
rews, who may not make a race to
succeed himself, it is said. A. D.
Cooper, William Williamson, and Al
fred Eames comprise a committee on
arrangements for next week's convention.
of them. Star-Bulletin.
The commission appointed to draft
a constitution and laws to make of the
Civic Convention a permanent instl.
tution has adopted a plan which will
meet the situation admirably. It is a
combination or the ideas of Messrs.
E. N. Deyo, of Hilo, and Raymond C.
Brown of Honolulu, to whom quite all
the credit for the hard work is due.
While the plan is all right, the quest
ion still lingers as to whether or not
the Civic Convention should be for
mally organized and ribbed about
with hard and fast laws. Undoubted
ly a number of delegates to the forth
coming convention in Hilo will oppose
the whole scheme, and will argue
that much of the success of the affair
in the past has been due to its
spontaneous and unbridled character:
although it must be admitted that
that condition of things cannot go on
are still kanalua on the proposition,
although perfectly satisfied with 'tn
constitution and laws prepared by the
commission, if permanent organization
is to be finally decided upon Garden
AN EXPLANATION THAT
EXPLAINS BUT LITTLE
A dispute has arisen in regard to a
communication which sr. Agncllo do
Cunha Pessoa, Portuguese Consul
general at Honolulu, received from the
Portuguese Consular representative at
Senhor Pessoa has authorized us to
say that the Portuguese Consul-general
at San Francisco was asked by
the promoters of the San Joaquin Val
ley homesteading project to view the
tract of land and give his opinion as
to its worth for colonizing purposes.
There was no the land was to be
put or to whom it was to be sold ex
cept that they were Portuguese. 6 Lu
so was in error when it stated that no
such letter had been written but this
letter was not intended for any such
use as that to which it was put. It
was simply a personally expressed o
plnion, as it is against the policy of
the consular service of Portugal to in
terfere in any immigration schemes.
When the gentleman who wrote this
letter heard of the manner in which
this letter was being exhibited, he
protested to the land company, who
wired to Steven telling him not to do
