authority by the bill to contract

engineer to advertise for bids
for the work at once.
Goodness And Waiaholo
Aspire To Be Senators
County Attorney Kaae spent several
days last week on Molokal entering
the names of new voters to the great
register. He reports fourty-two new
voters In the Settlement alone, the big
proportion of whom have become
residents of the place from the Hama
kua district, Hawaii. This week the
Clerk visited different sections of the
Lahaina district, and next Tuesday he
will go to Hana. Indications thus for
are that the Increase In Maui voters
will somewhate exceed the loss by
deaths and removals.
Three Out for Senate
Thus far three candidates have
taken out nomination papers indicat
ing their intention to try for one of
the two places in the upper house of
the legislature which are to be filled

candidate for the house of represent
atives, while John Brown, Jr., former
district magistrate of Lahaina ,1b also

will represent the Maul democracy in
the big race.

ku school at Pauwela, will be an im
portant witness for the state in the
prosecution of the suspected perpet

fore the explosion occurred. The dis
trict attorney of San Francisco has
written the school department asking

mitted to attend the hearing which
will probably take p"ace soon. Wade
was stopping at the Young Hotel, Hon
olulu, the first of the week.
FASSOTH WILL NOT
John Fassoth, manager of the Kipa-hui'-u
Plantation, returned on Tuesday
from a trip to Honolulu. Mr. Fassoth,
who was a member of the last legis
lature from Kauai, is quoted by a Hon
olulu paper as stating that he will not
seek similar honors from the Maui e
lectorate this year.
SCARCITY OF BAIT SPOILS
Delegate Kuhio, II. W. Shingle, pres
ident of the Henry Waterhouse Trust
Company, and H. Gooding Field, made
a trip to Lahaina on Tuesday for the
purpose of enjoying a day or two of
game finning. Dearth of aku or other
suitable bait in the markets put the
u-ip out of business and the pait
turned the same evening with nothing
to show for-their pains.
Maui Teams Win All
Harvest Home Sports
Throngs Of Visitors Enjoy Hospitality
Of II. C. & S. Men And Good
Athletic Events Honolulu Teams
Fail To Take Any Laurels
For the first time in a good many
years the visiting athletic teams from
Honolulu competing in the Puunene
Harvest Home games, went back to
the ciiy with no laurels of victories
won. . It Is true that some of (he best
players of both the bowling and the
tennis teams from Honolulu were un
able to make the trip this year. But
it is also true that the Maui athletes
did some good work, and would hav
made it mighty interesting in any
The Harvest Home celebration of
the Hawa'lan Commercial & Sugar
Company this year is conceded by all
of the many hundred guests to have
eclipsed all previous efforts in many
ways. It is certain that the hospitality
ty of the big company through its
officers and employes was never more
pleasingly accorded than it was last
Saturday. No pains had been spared
in making the Puunene Club House
and grounds attractive with beauti
ful decorations. A large arbor, or out
side lanai formed an attractive place
in which the delicious lunch was serv
ed at noon time to the many guests
who had gathered to see the morning
sports. In the evening this . same
floral shelter afforded a pleasant re
treat in which dainty refreshments
were partaken of between the dance
numbers. The ball, by the way, was
the opening dance In the Puunene
Club's new club house, and the per
fect floor and attractive furnishings
of the building were greatly appreci
Honolulu Well Represented
Besides the members of the athletic
teams, quite a large number of Hono
lulu visitors were present, having ar
rived by the Claudine and Manoa,
both of which reached port early Sat
urday morning. The sailing of the Ma
noa for Honolulu on Sunday permit
ted the visitors to enjoy the dance on
Saturday night to the end.
Three Teams Win Tennis
But three of the eight Honolulu
teams won their games, all the others
losing by heavy scores. The total
score for the day Is given as 122 to
men on whom much had been counted
meb on whom much had been counted
by Honolulu, were unable to come,
which possibly accounts for the poor
general showing. Lowrey and Hen
noch, Nowell and Cunha, and Rice and
Macfarlane were the three teams that
made good for the visitors.
Local Bowlers Win
In the bowling an even worse de
feat was administered by the local
knights of the pin to their Honolulu
competitors. Here again, however,
the Honolulu team was unfortunate in
being shy Scott and Clark, two of
their most reliable rollers. Maul won
the three games by a total of 453 pins
more than their rivals.

Lost Money Through
Paia Arouses Interest
The reported shortage of foreign
money order funds totaling $1750,
which passed through the Paia post
offlce destined for Japan, is the source
of much speculation . The matter was
brought to light by complaints of Jap
anse of Maui to their consul in Hono
lulu. The post office inspectors in
Honolulu profess not to have been ab
le as yet to fix responsibility on any
person as yet, but are awaiting the re
turn of Postmaster Morris K. Keoho
koleie, who attended the democratic
national convntion in St. Louis, and
has not yet returned. National Com
mitteman J. H. Wilson is reported to
have stated that ho does not know
Keohokolele's present whereabouts.
The remittances all disappeared be
tween July and November of last year,
according to the Japanese consul.

eral months' vacation, during the time

Of Paia Camp Residents
Karl L. Corson, of Columbus, Ohio,
who has been engaged by the Alex
ander House Settlement to take
charge of the boys' work departments.
Is expected to arrive next, week by
the Lurline. He will have the direc
tion of all lines of work in which boys
are interested, including charge of the
gymnasium and playground. Mr. Cor
son corueg very highly recommended.
For some years ho was in charge of
similar work in the Ray State Club,
an organization of South Ashbuniham,
Mass. similar in scope to that of the
District Nurse Department
Broadening its field and the charact
er of its work, the Alexander House
Settlement, will inaugurate a system
of district nursing on September 1.
The first nurse who has been engaged
is Miss Anna Sylva, a trained nurse or
excellent qualifications, who was form
erly connected with the Lahaina Hosp
ital, and her field of effort will be in
and around 1he Paia camps. Under
standing and speaking both Spanish
and Portuguese fluently, it is expected
that she will be able to accomplish a
great deal in bettering conditions
especially among these two national
ities. If the experiment turns out as
is hoped, it is likely that other nurses
wi'l be added for othe districts.
More Land Acquired
Through the purhcase from A. G.
Dickens of 3-10 of an acre of land al
most directly across the street from
the Settlement, the institution has
secured room for two fine tennis
courts, a hand-ball ' court, and a
croquet ground. There has long been
a recognized need for an out-of-doors
yard for such sports, which the ac
quisition of the Dickins property will
fill. Work will begin in fitting up the
lot for its new purposes probably next
week, and it will be ready for use
within a few weeks.
It is understood that the Association
paid Mr. Dickins $1,000 for his proper
ty. Will Lay Corner Stone Of

wao Union Church "The Henry Per
rlne Baldwin Memorial Church" as it

Rev. A. Craig Bowdish, assisted by
the Rev. R. B. Dodge, who will make

A duet will be sung by Mrs. L. C.
Jones and Mr. H. Washburn Balwdin
and two anthems will be rendered by
the Molokai choir, the members of
which are at present on Maui. The

unusually large, will participate in a
