as mnny meetings have been held al

Maui To Have

Maul Is to have an auto club, short

Honolulu Auto Club, If the effort of
J. P. Foster of Paia is successful. He
brought up the question of organis

the fair committee held yesterday and
the plan met with approval from all
'those present. He said that a num
ber of Paia, Makawao and Hamabua

the matter and were anixous to see
the organization effected. If for no
other reason that to urge the better

Daisy Is Coming
To County Fair
Honolulu Elephant Is To Be One Of The
Amusing And Interesting Attrac
tions At Maui Show
Daisy, the Honolulu elephant recent
ly purchased as a Kapiolanl. park at
traction, is to be one of the sights at
the Maul County Fair, if the plans to
bring the animal to Wailuku do not
fall through. Riley Allen, editor of
the Star-Bulletin, suggested to the
fair committeemen that he thought It
would be possible to secure the eleph
ant as an added attraction by simply
making a request to the Honolulu
board of supervisors. The drawing
power of the elephant as an attraction
for Kapiolanl park has been great. On
the first day the elephant was exhib
ited in Honolulu over 10,000 people
went to the park to see the animal, he
Tho committeemen received the
suggestion enthusiastically and asked
Mr. Allen to learn on his return to Ho
nolulu whether the elephant could be
secured for the fair. The day after
he returned to Honolulu, a wireless
was received from him stating that
the supervisors In Honolulu were will
ing to mako the exhibit, if a formal
application was made to them.
So far as in known, there i no doubt
that the elephant will be one of the
great attractions for t' e children at
at the fair, as many of those on Maul
have never seen such an pnimal.
Committeemen At Regular Weekly
Meeting Take SI eps To Secure Spec
ial Boat Service To Kahului From
Honolulu For County Show
Plans for excursions from Hono
lulu and Hana, and the best means of
getting the various exhibits here,
were discussed.at some length at the
regular weekly meeting of the county
fair committee held yesterday after
noon at the Town Hall. Every effort
is to be made to have an excursion
boat come from Honolulu Thanks
giving Day, probably leaving Hono
lulu in the evening, and remain here
until Friday or Saturday night.
The cooperation, of the Ad Club,
Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club
and various other Honolulu organiza
tion, which have agreed to make an
exhibit, will be asked to also aid in
having an excursion run by the In-
ter-Is'.and and to get the people of
Honolulu interested in coming.
Regarding the possibility of a suc
cessful excursion from the Hana, the
committeemen were not so enthusi
astic, as it was feared that there would
not be sufficient patronage to warrant
it. However, it was decided to name
Principal McCluskey and Supervisor
Drummond as a committee to ascer
tain the number who might take adv
antage of the opportunity, if a special
boat was run from Hana to Wailuku.
The committeemen decided that the
press should be asked to inform all
exhibitors that all consignments or ex
hibits should be addressed to the
Transportation Committee, Kahului,
Maui. It is urged that the exhibits be
sent in as early as possible, preceding
the fair dates.
That the entries for the live stock
exhibit will be closed in a very few
days was intimated at the meeting,
as the number of stalls now required
is about three times more than was
first thought necessary.
Tho question of securing outside
judges for the exhibits was discussed
and it was decided to get experts
from the other islands, whenever poss
Chairman Wadsworth announced
that all the exhibit booths on the fair
frrnunds. which will be constructed
from lumber would be up within a

subscribed for by Maul people, the

A Plea For An Old Woman And A Boy
Pitiful, in the extreme, is the tale of poverty and physical infirmity
of a destitute, helpless, friendless and aged woman, in the very
center of this island known all over the group for the charity of its
wealthy population which comes to the Maui News, from County At
torney Bevins, who has personally investigated "the case."
Lying unattended and unable to perform the slightest task for her
own comfort in a small room in the
Galician woman, nearing the age of
stroke, who spent much of her youth

Without nourishing food without proper personal attention, the
most needed, her life is slowly ebbing away, while the only succor she
is receiving is from the kindness of a foreign race, the humble Japan
ese laborers, and a thirteen-year old son, who had to be taken away from
a good home this week to aid in his youthful, i nexperienced way in the
last sad days of his dying mother.
Professional charity "investigators", if they were to make "a
study" of "the case," might report that the woman is the victim of her
own misdeeds and overlook the outstanding heroic fact of her life,
that for the sake of her son, she consented three years ago, even though
then she needed the few cents he could cam for her support, that he be
placed in a home where he might receive an education.

Such is the bare, brief facts of this woman's pitiful condition.
Will Maui permit them to remain the same?
If the story has any appeal to your charity, County Attorney Bevins
will inform you how you can aid in assisting this old woman in her last
remaining days and save an unusually bright boy from the horrors
of memories of how his mother spent the last days of her life, in a land
of plenty, denied even the nourishment of human kindness.
But there is one bright ray to add to this otherwise too sad story :
Three years ago, when her poverty and infirmity was brought to their
attention, the supervisors appropriated a pension of five dollars a month

the Inter-Island Navigation Company, while testifying before the public
utility board yesterday afternoon regarding the freight rates of the com
pany on cattle shipped from Hawaii, Maui, Molokai and Kauai to Ho
nolulu, declared that the new rates" are lower than those formerly charge
ed cattle shippers. He gave comparisons to show that the shippers were
enjoying a lower schedule than before, as a whole, although not so, he
admitted, in some instances.
The investigation of the new rates was undertaken over two months
ago by the public utilities commission, after Harold Rice lodged a com

A Civil Suit
Recalling the tragedy of last Dec
ember when the whdle family of Man
uel Pacheco Santos, consisting of the
two parents and five children, were
swept away and drowned in a gulley
on the Hula slopes, near the Pulehu
Camp of the Maul Agricultural Planta
tion, an action is pending in tho circuit
court to collect the- life insurance of
the father from the Lusitania Benevol
ent Society. Tha society does not
refuse to pay the insurance, but wants
a decision to tell it to whom the in
surance should go, as both the father
of tho dead husband and the father of
the dead wife claim the money. If the
wife had survived the husband she
would have received the money, or her
heirs, but as all the family was drown
ed ihere Is no eye witness to tell which
died first. Unless an agreement is
reached by the two claimants, the
question as to whom is the rightful
heir will be thashed out in the court.
The amount of the insurance is $1500.
