The desirability and usefulness of a local historical society an
organization which would take upon itself the task of collecting and
putting into permanant form, data of historical character concerning
Maui, was suggested this week by Hon. W. O. Smith , of Honolulu,
who is at present on Maui. The idea seems a most excellent one.
Maui is replete with much historical maleivil of most interesting kind
that must soon he lost if it be r.ot promptly recorded . This data is
not simply of local interest. Much of it is so intimately associated
with the development of the islands as a whole, that the value of such
r..,-or(U i-.-imint h- o er-cstimatcd. It is true that there is a Hawaiian
Historical Society, hut there is a large amount of interesting matter
concerning the early settlement and grow th of this county that will
necessarily he overlooked by tli- larger body. Much of this concerns
the early missionary families and the development of the local industries.
TU manner of living 75 years ago; the social intercourse of the people;
the efforts to de lop the resources of the island, all arc full of details of
greatest interest for the people of Maui today, and will be of even great
er interest to the residents of tomorrow.
Kauai for a number of years past has had an association of this
kind. It nvets from time to time at irregular intervals when there is
some paper to be read or some new line of investigation to be undertak
en. It is an association in which the members work for the interest
they find in searching for gems of historical data in out of the way pla
ces, and the pleasure they get from reviewing the activities of a past
generation. As Mr. Smith ioints out, much of the success of the
Kauai organization is due to the (kep interest in it taken by a small
group of Kauai residents, the first of which is probably the Rev. J. M.
Lydgate. Mr. Lydgate has develop a mine of investing informat
ion valuable to the whole group, through his personal interest and effort.
' Mr Smith who as a resident of Maui half a century or more ago,
and who as sheriff of the Island in the early 70's came in intimate con
lact with the activities of that day, is himself doubtless qualified to sup
ply a irreat amount of information of much historical value. W ere he a
resident of Maui now.it is quite certain that Ue would be a leading
M.irit in the organization of a nature such as he sugtf.-sts. lhere aie
however, oilers w ho are probably as much interested who would doubt
less find a large following should they undertake the formation ot a
Maui Historical Society .

It is poor encouragement to officers and men to spend a consider

talk of a dress inspection and Hag presentation. At least this is tlx; way

like complete uniform or arms equipment, and they are the old 1st Regi
