CHARGES FOR SPACE AND
A definite decision was reached this week as to the amount of the
various charges which will be made for exhibitors' space and for ad
missions to the Maui County Fair. This is one of the problems which
has been troubling the finance committee ever since the fair work was
undertaken, as there was very little precedent to go by. At a recent
meeting it was fully decided that the original intention to charge all
CNhibitors a small entrance fee be abandoned, and to charge only those
who exhibited bulky articles and livestock. The final rate of charges
decided upon are given below in full:

Children, 6 to 14 25c.

Season Tickets Adults $2.00
Friday, December 1st Special School Children's Day for all
Exhibitors. In addition to the charge to exhibitors for space,
exhibitors' employees will have passes costing $1.00 each for only
such employees as may be necessary to handle their exhibit during
the fair. This of course will not be applicable where the nature
of the exhibit is such as not to require personal attention of the ex
hibitor in the discretion of the manager of the Fair.
Charges for Space.
A charge of 10c. per square foot for the first 500 square feet,
and 5c. per square foot for excess spare beyond 500 square feet
under cover of tent.
Concessions, Entertainments, Refreshments Not less than
10 of gross receipts, in the discretion of the manager of the Fair.
Commissions on Sales.
On sales of articles or on orders taken at the Fair, a charge of
5co will be made on any article the value of which does not exceed
$100.00. A charge of 2T2 on any article the value of which is
more than $100.00.
Live Stock Cattle $2.00 each
Horses 2.50 each
Sheep 1.00 each

Eben Low Testifies
For the first time since the hearings
before the Public Utilities Commission
on the Inter-Island Steam Navigation
Company's rates commenced a month
ago, something of a picturesque nature
was injected into the last hearing
by Eben P. Low, superintendent of the
Oahu shipping Company.
Low was put on the stand as a wit
ness for the steamship company, and
succeeded in explaining to the com
mission that much of the injury sus
tained by cattle was not due to the
steamship company. Incidentally he
took a number of falls out of the Ha
waii Meat i Company, and intimated
that no matter how little the shippers
receive for their cattle the prices re
mains the same, if not higher.
Low declared that much of the
bruising of cattle was caused by rop
ing and driving them to the boats. He
believed that little harm was done on
the boats and that the steamship
company should not be held' respons
ible for injury to cattle.
Among the points brought out by
Low was the fact that it is more hu
mane to handle steers by the horns
than with (tackle around the body, as
is now the practise:
"The stronges part of a bullock is
his neck," said Low, "and I.' believe
that the cattle should be slung from
the horns. That is the way HUs done

wife of the delegate of that name,
composed the words for the songs.
