THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1916.
Subject Of Inquiry
Acting Manager Of Parker Ranch
And Captain Bennet Are Witnesses
At Freight Rate Hearing Of Public
HONOLULU. Oct. 16 When O. L.
Sorenson, assistant manager of the
Farker Ranch, Hawaii, was nerved
with a subpoena to appear before the
public utilities commission in the
absence of A. W. Carter, to protest
against the new freight and passenger
schedule of the Inter-lsland Steam
Navigation Company, the order called
for the bringing of all books, records,
capitalization and sources of income
of (he cattle ranch on the Big Island.
Sorenson, was at the meeting of
the commission today but he did not
bring any records. Soon after the
hearing of Sorenson began Attorney L,
J. Warren, for the steamship com
pany asked for the records. H's ex
cuse was that in the hurry to get the
boat at HMo in time to reach Honolulu
for the hearing he did not have time
to equip himself with the data demand
ed by the commission. Following a
direct lino of examination by Chair
man Forbes, Sorenson admitted that
in the absence of Carter he was In
full authority and was familiar with
the financial status of the ranch.
In the absence of this data which
Warren needed to carry on his
examination little of general Interest
occured at the meeting. Sorenson ad
mitted that cattle were frequently
bruised after they reached the vessels
of the steamship company and declar
ed that the possibility of cattle being
bruised while being driven from the
range to the ships was remote. Much
of the trouble, he said, was due to the
crews of the ships losing the'j temper
while unloading cattle. It was a
rather decorous meeting and much
time was devoted to minor technical
ities regarding the handling of cattle.
Capt. William G. Bennett of the
steamship company Injected some pic
turesque features into the hearing by
declaring that in many cases cattle
are bruised and have their horns
broken while being driven from the
corrals to the: steamship. In terse but
vivid language he told how in many
cases the steers are stampeded by the
cow punchers In their work of driving
the cattle to the loading shutes.
Another Interesting fact brought out
by Captain Bennett was that cattle
frequently break their horns when
thoy are lowered to the decks of the
"When the bullocks are landed on
their feet," said Captain Bennett,
"they appear to be terrified. Just as
soon as the sling and ropes are re
moved from them they charge head
first at anything In sight. Unusually
they charge the head of the winch.
In this way they break their horns."
When asked if the cattle are wild or
tame, Captain Bennett admitted that
at such times of loading he had no
desire to go down amongst them. He
said that he still carries several
wounds from the times he did take a
part in loading the steers.

Visit Maui Soon
Prince Kuhio, Hawaii's delegate to
Congress, Is campaigning on the isl
and of Hawaii this week. He went
there a week before the primary elec
tion and is covering a large part of
the Big Island.
He will stop at Maui on his way to
Honolulu the latter part of next week
and make several speeches here.
Then he will go to Honolulu and de
vote the rest of the campaign to the
Oahu situat'on. According to present
plans he will not visit Kauai. The
Garden Island will turn in a big maj
ority for him anyway, it is anticipated.
Raymond Rumor Is
Emphatic denial is made by Dr. J.
H. Raymond that ho is to be the suc
cessor of Wade Warren Thayer, secr
etary of the territory, who Is expect
ed to resign about the first of the year,
as was the report published this week
in the Honolulu Advertiser. The re
port stated that in case the Maul
doctor was not elected as senator he
would be given the expected vacancy
In the goernor's "cabinet."
When Dr. Raymond was informed of
the message bringing the news to
Wailuku, he, metaphorically, "went
up in the air."
"You can tell them for me that I
would not accept appointment as gov.
ernor of the territory, let alone act as
secretary," he declared. He added:
'I believe the whole story is a camp
aign concoction intended simply to
hurt my chances of election as senator
from this island. No, I am not a
candidate for the position, and, what
is more, I do not want and would not
Raymond's supporters aver that the
same story. In effect, was used at a
meeting in the Makawao district the

Anxious To Go To France
There were rejoicings in the camp
when at last we were told that we
were to go to France. We had a love
ly trip across the water to Marseilles,
where we arrived In March, and a trip
by train through the sunny South,
witn entnusiastic receptions every
where. Here it was spring, fruit trees
In bloom and the ground covered with
flowers. We passed old chatcaus and
castles, memories of an old France,
but not more glorious than the pres
ent France. In the northern part it
was still winter and we arrived at
our destination in a snowstorm. It
was the last fiutler as we did not see
any more. f
We were billeted in towns and vil
lages behind the firing line for a
month. During this time we truly
lived on the fat of the land. Such a
difference from our former hunting
grounds. We spent, later, some miser
able weeks in the wet trenches of
Belgium an France, both; but we had
some fun and excitement. I will not
go into the details of the routine and
fighting, which are no doubt familiar
to you through the newspapers.
It was a lovely France we had
learned to love in May when the trees
had gotten their green, and the air
was full of the scent of summer.

We have done some good In the
fighting line here, losing many a brave
comrade it is true, but that is only the
fortunes of war. Life Is cheap these
days, and a more cheerful crowd of
men than the British I have never
seen. "Fight and be merry today;
tomorrow we die."
