Fervid Writer Tells Strange Story About Haleakala,
Maui And New Hotel Wailuku Credited With
30,000 Population Is Only One Of Many Start
Those Honeymoon Isles are Rotting
all sorts of publicity these days, says
last Sunday's Bystander. More hulas
n,-e danced every night in Nw York
than in a month in Hawaii nei. There
are more ukuleles up and down the
Pacific Coast than there are peop'e in
the Islands. A mainland vaudeville
circuit which has not at least one Ha
waiian "princess" to feature is very
far out of the swim. Six out of every
ten music stores from California to
Maine keep their windows filled with
"Hawaiian music," some of it as
wierd in music as it is wonderful in
words. (One popular song has the Ha
waiian title "Mea One M'ona," with an
English translation which declares
this to be "My Own Minnie.") Every
rathskeller has its Hawaiian orchestra.
Every restaurant features alligator
pears and Aloha Oe.
Publications, from the very d'gnifled
Outlook to the somewhat more frivol
ous Police Gazette, keep their readers
informed as to things Hawaiian, and
some of the descriptive matter I have
seen lately makes me think that our
own promotion literature is drab.
Herewith I will present a fair sam

population is Oaku, the seat of imperi
al Honolulu and Waikikl Palm Beach.
Across the Kaiwi and Auau channels
are the lesser Molokai and Lanai, and
600 miles northwest the plump and
prophetic Kauai, with its Haualel
heart and Maua Point. The babette is
Niihau isle but as yet nude. The Ha
waiian Islands from the south point
of the huge Hawaiian to Kauai Maua
Point are all of 1000 miles in length
and from a half day to a full day apart
by the linking boats. The whole islands
have probably 250,000 population, Oa
ku and Honolulu one-half or about.
Oaku Is thrice looped by rail, auto
highways, and established steamers.

with the lure of the new Grand Hotel
a Wailuku Clift snow white, solid
and beautiful, with every San Francis
co fad and fancy of comfort, conveni
ence and service, and a capacity for
100 patrons. General manager A. J.
de Souza of the Grand Hotel Company
has Just returned to the Maui Wailu
ku following a month at the Fielding,
San Francisco, buying the equipment,
engaging a manager Frederick Mc
Donald and "planting" the Pacific
Slope with patronage publicity. Mr.
McDona'd, late of the Plaza and this
year with the Fielding, will follow on
the 10th prox. and manage the new
Grand at Wailuku and around the is.
lands. General manager de Souza said
that the new Grand will be the Maui
"Mecca" this season with its California
high-type hotel accommodations, the
want of which has until now decimat
ed tourist travel to the deep and dead
Vesuvius, whose dimensions are In
comprehensible and its depth bottom
less and unknown. Some idea of the
exterminated purgatory apperture may
be derived from the statement that its
13.000 feet oversea open rim is fifteen
milos across and Its pivotal point un
fathomable, although graded trails
descend into the darkness and parad

Down in its ghostly shadows taring
tourists come upon wild and wiered
animals, that mysteriously exist there

their fading tails at the sight of a

camping all night to also witness the
still more astounding and unforgetable

Worth Aiken Tells
Of Coast Gossip
"Hula dancing on the Isthmus is not
immodest," writes Worth Aiken of
Maul, member of the Hawaii Promo
tion Committee, who Is now on the
mainland. Writing from Chicago to
A. P. Taylor, secretary of the Hawaii
Promotion Committee, Aiken says that
he saw the dance, given by Hawaiians,
and did not think it immodest in any
. Aiken visited southern California,
the Grand Canyon, and is now on his
way to Niagara Falls. He says
that everywhere he goes Hawaiian
music is played and is proving the hit
of the year. He writes that a new
electrical organ at Marshall Field's
played "On the Beach at Waikikl"
as the first number.
Touching on the road question,
Aiken remarked that after going over
roads to points of Interest, that were
boulevards it was a shame that
Honolulu should have such a roadway
to a beach known around the world.
Aiken was pleased with the San Diego
exhibit as a cog in the whole Pacific
Coast representation. As a real Ha
