Boat Is Nearly
Sunk At Lahaina
Returning Visitors To Hilo Have Nar
row Escape Are Crashed Against
Concrete Pier Shock And Scrat
Another tragedy at Lahaina land
ing, which for a moment portended
a much more serious one than that of
over a year ago, was averted simply
by good .fortune on last Monday eve
ning when one of the landing boats of
the Mauna Kea was smashed against
a concrete pier of the wharf. Within
less than a hundred feet of the wharf,
the landing boat was picked up by a
huge breaker and carried at a speed
of twenty miles an hour agninst the
For some almost unaccountable
reason, the pier failed to smash the
boat to pieces and after a few mom
ents hard work it was righted and
brought to the landing, with the In
juries to the passengers confined to
shock and a few bruises. Just before
the boat struck the landing the for
ward oarsman dove from the boat, but
he managed to swim ashore.
As the boat crashed into the pier
all the passengers were thrown upon
the bottom of the boat, but none were
forced overboard. The wave as It
receded from the wharf also carried
the boat backward to where the oars
men were able to gain control of it.
If the boat had not struck the pier
it would have forced into the dark and
swirling waters under the wharf and
probably swamped, where many of
the twenty passengers would almost
certainly have been drowned.
Opinion differs as to whether
the boat steerman, when he
saw the danger the boat was in,
deliberately guided the boat against
the pier to prevent it from going be
neath the wharf. The majority of the
witnesses of the accident, however,
credit the steersman with saving the
boat from plunging into another boat
loaded with passengers which was
The first boat was also caught by a
huge wave, but having a clear way at
the landing the crew were able to
bring it safely to Its destination.
While first boat was nearing the
landing the second boat was caught by
the waves and In order to avoid smash
ing into the first boat the second had
to be guided away from the landing.
If the two boats had smashed to
gether both would have been capsized,
it is said.
At the anchorage where the Mauna
Kea lay the sea was very smooth and
it was only as the boats neared the
shore that the big breakers were en
countered. Blame is attached to the
crew of the second boat for riding the
boat in on the surf Instead of holding
It back with their oars. The jumping
overboard of the forward oarsman is
also severely critislzed by some of the
The excitement on the wharf,
where there was a great crowd wait
ing for the return of friends from the
civic convention and the Hawaii fair,
was great after the boat smashed in
to the pier, as it was a few moments
before it was known whether the boat
had been stoved in, or was still in a
condition to be brought alongside the
Among those in the second boat
were. Mr. and Mrs. W. L. West, W. E.
Shaw of Honolulu and Mrs. William
Lennox of Hana. West was bruised
just below the knees and Shaw receiv
ed a cut on his face from the accident.
The ladles escaped injury, but suffer
ed slightly from shock, as did all the
women passengers in the boat.

Perhaps, the most Important thing
accomplished by President Wads,

Maui Made Good
Wadsworth And Case Praise Delegates
For Good Attendance At Convention
Meetings Valley Isle Songs Make
A Big Hit
''The Maul delegation made good,
because it played the game 'all the
time,'" enthusiastically declare Presi
dent Wadsworth and Secretary Case
of the Chamber of Commerce, when
discussing the Maui attendance at the
civic convention. Both the officials
were particularly well pleased on ac
count of the interest in the serious
work of the convention which was
shown by ail the members of the del
egation.. According to Secretary Case the at
tendance of the delegates at the dif
ferent sessions of the convention was
highly satisfactory. He adds: "The
Maui men not only took part in all the
fun of the trip, but attended to busi
ness as well."
Other returning members of the
delegation say that they were highly
pleased at the entertainment and hosp
itality shown them by the Hilo
people. That the Maui delegation in
its catchy costume and with its still
more catchy Valley Isle songs attract
ed favorable attention Is the opinion
of all the delegates.
Regarding the work of the conven
tion, the expression is made that it
waa of great value. One of the del
egates believes that as a result of the
convention that all the islands here
after will get "better roads and less
politics," as he puts it.
