"Put Me Off At Kuhio
Bay" Delegates Slogan
All Maui Men Wear Uniform Of White With Is
land Colors-Delegation Has Three
Sending fhe largest delegation which ever went from this island
to a civic convention, twenty delegates of the Maui Chamber of Com
merce left for llilo on Wednesday, attired in white with sashes of the
Main colors and reinforced with three songs which describe the charms
of the Valley Isle.
The songs, specially written by Mrs. D. II. Case and Washburn
l.aldwin, were an afterthought following the decision that the Maui
men must wear a distinctive and attractive uniform for the conven
tion trip. The uniforms selected consists of white shirts, while hats
white trousers and white shoes. Around the wasit each delegate wore
a long sash of black and yellow and a tie of similar hue.
During the past week and the latter part of last the delegates met
a number of times to rehearse their convention songs. Before they
left. all of them had memorized ihe words. Even though they knew
the songs, the delegates took printed copies along for distribution so
the other convention delegates can join in shouting Maui's worth.
I hat no mistake might be made as to where the Maui 'delegation
was headed, each delegate had a great yellow pennant on his suitcase
on which appeared the words : "J 'ut me off at Kuhio Bay." The deleg
ates boarded the Kiliauea at Lahaina where they joined the Honolulu
and Kauai delegations.
The three songs which the Maui delegation will sing for the delight
of the convention are entitled: "Sweet Maui," to the tune of "Sweet
Mane; My Dear Old Valley Isle," to the tune "Old Kentucky
Home, and "Maui's Out Tonight," with an air like "There'll Be A
Hot lime Tonight." The words for the last song were composed by
Baldwin and those for the first two by Mrs. Case.
The Maui convention delegation consisted of the following eentle
men : "

L. Von Tempsky, Washburn Baldwin, F. G. Krauss, James Lindsay,

Delegate Candidates To Address
Inmates Of Kalaupapa
For the first time In eight years
the Maul .candidates have been grant
ed permission by the territorial board
of health to make political talks to the
inmates of the Molokai settlement.
The permission was secured by Dr.
Raymond, candidate for nomination
and election as senator from Maui,
from Governor Pinkham, Attorney
General Stainback and the board of
health, with Dr. Pratt, the president,
Dr. Raymond first made his appeal
to the governor, and then to the at
torney general by whom he was grant
ed permission to appear before the
board of health. Attorney James Coke
with Dr. Raymond both addressed the
board, arguing that although the Molo
kai settlement residents had been
deprived of their liberty to a certain
extent, that they had been allowed
by Congress and the territory to retain
their civil rights In other respects and
had the right to vote. To deprive them
of the rights of hearing political ad
dresses was arbitrary ruling and one
never intended and prescribed by the
law it was argued. It was even stat
ed that the residents of the settle
ment would receive some entertain
ment as well as information from the
political addresses which they would
News that they were once again to
be the focus point of political atten
tion is said to have been received
with great joy in the settlement.
Candidates for nomination and elec

With Great Hospitality
Lahaina entertained and entertained bountifully at her two-day
harvest celebration last Saturday and Sunday. Fully 500o visitors en
joyed the hospitality of the little village and her big hearted men and
women for the forty-eight hours the celebration lasted.
It is impossible to tell in detail of the many different events that
occured during that time. A partial report of the events and part
cipants takes columns to tell in the brevity of program form.
The program started with base ball and horse racing at Kaanapali
Saturday and wound up late Sunday night with dancing and free mov
ing pictures. Central Maui turned out in mass for the big ball on
Saturday night, the Lahaina-Wailuku highway being thronged with
merrymakers and merry-seekers on their way to the celebration. Many
of those who went over Saturday remained until weariness of enjoy
ment sent them homeward on Sunday.
A feature of the event was the opening of the new Lahaina store,
which was visited and inspected by hundreds. Another feature, an
extremely interesting one, was the participation of the members of the
Maui militia regiment in most of the athletic events. Not only did
the militiamen participate in the different events, but also provided
some unique and novel forms of entertainment which were typically of
a military nature. One of the most interesting, judging from after
comments, was the retiring sharpshooter's race. The horse racing was
another highly enjoyable part of the program.
On Sunday at noon a big lunch was provided for every one of the
several thousand visitors on the race track. The seemingly almost im
possible task of supplying sufficient food for all was accomplished with
out trouble as the Lahaina poeple had estimated correctly in advance
the number they would have to entertain. Over rive tons of pineapples
were consumed at this lunch and other tons of fruit and vegetables.
Manager Weinzheimer entertained his friends at the luncheon in a
pavilion and the other hundreds were provided with eating places in

Time Reading lnail Long Hau
ls Clipped To Permit Examination
Of Skull For Insanity Marks
John Ginza, the confessed slayer of
George Cooper of Hana, is said by po
lice officials to be showing signs of
regret for the cowardly crime which
committed. He seems to realize now
the irrimensity and the serious penalty
which he will probably be callud upon
to pay for' his deed.
Although there are unusual Bigns of
regret, that is for an Oriental, shown
by Ginza, he spends his time very
qulte'y in the Wailuku jail, having
very little intercourse with the other
prisoners. At his request he has been
provided with an abundance of maga
zines which he reads throughout the
day. He has not been given news

papers would have been refused him
by the police. Very little information
concerning the crime has been allowed
to creep into the other prisonres.
Ginza's long hair was clipped close
to his head during the past week. It
is rumoured that it is thought he or
the attorney appointed to defend him
may enter a plea of insanity as a de
fense for the crime. The hair was
cut to permit Dr. Osmer and Dr.
Sawyer to examine his skull for signs
