In the last week of the primary
campaign, Molokal, or rather the Kala

tal point of all the candidates. Of
all the sixteen Republican candidates
there are only two or three who did
not visit the settlement in order to
try and secure the support of the vot
ers there. So close Is the contest be
tween some of the representative can
didates that the balloting of the inma
tes of the settlement will be the de.
elding factor in the contests.
Now on the last day of the campaign
the candidates are telling among
themselves how they scored a victory
in Kalaupapa. It was announced last
week that the candidates would all
visit the settlement this week by the
Mikahala. But it 'was an agreement
with a whispered proviso, to hear the
opponents explain It. Early in the
week some of the candidates realized
that with so many Intending to go on
the one date there would be little
time for the campaigning of each, so

this week by Postal Inspector
Thomas Flavin. The United

a report of the shortage had
been made to his office and that
: the matter would be placed be
fore the federal grand Jury when
it meets on next Monday.
Knowledge that there was a
shortage in the Pauwela office
has been known to a few on Ma
ul since last Saturday, when In
spector Flavin completed an in
vestigation of the books of that
office. After his investigation
he ordered the office c'osed and
transferred the postofDce to Ha

Much interest is being displayed in
the swimming meet and dance which
is' to be held at the Alexander House
Settlement tomorrow evening. The
boys who are to take part In the swim
ming contests have been practising
every day during the past week and
are showing a fine quality. "They will
be hard to beat," their backers decl
are. The girls also have an exceptional
fine team, and if Paia is to win either
by match it must have some very fast
swimmers. Observations of experts,
point to the decision that there will be'
a very close match.
The events for boys are as follows:
100-foot sprint; 50-foot sprint; 50-foot
back stroke; 100-foot relay; three
dives, swan, back and choice. The
girls' events will be the same, except
that there will be no relay race.
After the swimminic matches there
will be dancing until midnight.

FAILURE OF LIGHT IS DUE
TO UNAVOIDABLE ACCIDENT
According to J. C. Blair, the super
intendent of the Inter-Island Electric
Company, the going out of the lights
all ever Wailuku last night was due
to an unavoidable accident. He says
that a valve spring broke and "killed"
the plant, until an auxiliary unit could
be started up. The resumption of the
service was made in fifteen minutes,
which he considers very fast work on
the part of his employees." Accidents
happen on steamships and railroads,
in spite of all the modern Improve
ments. That was our misfortune last
night," he explains.

Brother Of Frank Peacock Writes In
teresting Letter Of Operations In
France, But Say Little About How
He Received Gunshot
Breathing confidence of an eventual
British victory in almost every line,
Jack Peacock, who was wounded In
France, has written a letter to his
brother, Frank Peacock of Puunene,
from a hospital in England where he is
While the letter is fifed with praise
of the bravery of others, and although
it is a long intimate one of the nature
which one brother might be expected
to write another, it is Blngularly lack
ing in details as to how the brother
of the Puunene man got his wound.
The only reference to the wound Is the
statement that he is in a hospital, and
then these unboastful words:
"I was wounded in the attack on
Qozieres in the shoulder, but am glad
it's nothing serious." In the several
hundred words of the letter that Is the
only statement made regarding the
wound received by young Peacock.
Continuing he says: "Our boys did
some good work there, but our losses
were heavy, still nothing to what Fritz
"I never saw such bombardments
since 1 have been on active
service. Fricourt, La Boisette
and all all those towns are
nothing but big heaps of dirt, with
hardly anything standing. So fierce
was the fire of the British artillery,
the earth fairly rocked from the con
cussions. We are getting the upper
hand now, and we our gradually push
ing h'm (Fritz) back, but this is only
the start and nothing to what he is go
ing to get.
"Germans gave themselves up when
we adanced, some of them almost in
sane, they say. Our artillery fire is so
terrible that it simply batters down
the opposition. I can assure you that
It is a sight one won't forget in a hur
ry. The Germans received orders to
retake Qozieres at all costs and they
attacked, wave after wave of them,
but our curtain fire mowed them down
and their attacks withered away. I
am satisfied that man to man the Ger
man is not so good as the soldiers of
the Brftish Empire and it was only
thetr overwhelming superiority at the
start in guns and men that allowed
them to advance at all.
"We have the men, guns and the
money now; also the absolute mas
tery of the air. I saw sixty-three of
our battle-planes go on bombing raid.
It was a sight well worth seeing. The
prettiest sight I saw at Messines was
when our planes brought downeight Ger
man ballons in flames. Our airmen
are about the gamest men on earth."
Peacock closes his letter with the
statement that he Is to have a chance
to visit his home the following day.
He expresses the hope that he will be
able to pass by the Hawaiian Islands
oi his way to Australia after the war
Although Peacock's letter had been
examined by the censor, the only word
In which it appeared there had been
an effort to delete was the name of a
hospital in France, to which he was
sent just after being wounded. Names
of towns in France around which he
had been fighting and also of different
localities in England were untouched.
