tpntnge to hoimo exhibits. In the be
ginning it wna believed that there
would be plenty of tent available for
any possible amount of competing dis
plays and commercial exh'bits which
might be: secured. But so hearty was
the response to the efforts of himnelf
and his associates that he soon found
his available supply of canvas on
Oahti was not large enough. lie came
to Honolulu and spent several busy
days hunting for more tents and se
cured several, but still had not enough
to cover the displays of all the would
be exhibitors. Still, this fact should
not discourage Intending exhibitors, as
Manager Cameron Is not the sort of a
man to be daunted and he will see thnt
exhibits are somehow taken care of.
Space for 200 Livestock
In this beautiful field, with moun
tains or plains on three sides and a
splendid sea vista on the other, the
buildings and stalls for the livestock
and other classes of exhibits are going
up at a rapid rate. Stalls have been
put in for 200 livestock. Dig tents
will be erected, and It will lok like a
real county fair when November 30
rolls around. ,
"It was a case of everybody pull
together and we found the fair grow
ing beyond all expectations," com
ments General Chairman Wadsworth.
By the way, he Is one of the Maul men
who are strictly "on Vie job" all the
time looking after the success of the
fair. On a recent visit to Maul I heard
that he was ill in bed and might not
be able to get out on the street that
day. I went down to see him and met
him driving his big auto up the road
at a lively pace. He Invited me to
jump in and we drove to the fair
ground. He had got up out of his
sick-bed to see that some of the con
struction of these stalls was going
along all right.
The spirit which Chairman Wads
worth puts into preparation for Maui's
events inspires all the committeemen,
apparently. They are men frankly en
thusiastic about their plans and about
Maui's chance to do something which
will be of interest and value to the
whole territory, and when business
men take hold of any public project
In that spirit, they are bound to be
At a meeting of the excutive com
mittee at this same time, I found
every man determined to do his part
and apparently hustling to do it a lit
tle better than anyone else. The citi

friendly competition, it would seem,
to have each section the livest and
"Booster Dinner" Shows Spirit
The "Booster Dinner" on November
9, at the Grand Hotel, showed how
Maui can "get together." Something
like tSO people gatne 'ed In this hotel
and it was something of a feat to
pull off the dinner there, too, because
the hotel was not finished isn't fin
ished yet, in fact and its manage
ment had to do some mighty tall hus
tling to make such a banquet possible.
But the banquet was held and that
was good omen for the success of the
fair. Forty people could not get seats.
At how many such functions in the
whole territory has there ever been
such an attendance and overflow?
The answer can be given easily on
the fingers of one hand.
Genral Chairman Wadsworth pre
sided and there was plenty of fun min
gled with some good, serious talking.
As a community gathering it was an
impressive fact in Maui's preparations
for the most elaborate event at which
she has played host to the people of
the other Islands in the group.
Can Care For All Visitors
Maul is now abundantly equipped to
care for all the visitors who go to
the fair. Hotel construction and im-
viuvcweui nave maae almost a new
town out of Wailuku. Some of the
best hotel accommodations in the ter
ritory can now be found here. It used
to be said that the traveler was not
sure of accommodations, but Maui

will be able when the fair's opening. it
day comes around to look after all the
visitors from other Islands, and do it
more than comfortably.
The visitors particularly those who
have never been on the Valley Isle,
are due for some pleasant surprises.
Ltke Hawaii, Maui offers a large num
ber of short trips for tourists ot wnicn
pralically nothing-is known. Most of
them are not thought of in the light of
tourist trips, but there are plenty to I
be had near vvaiiUKU, ivanuiui, r-am,
Kihei, Lahaina and half a dozen other
towns. The scenery Is magnificent,
the climate fine and with good hotels
easily within reach of any day's auto
mobiling, the traveler Is assured of a
good meal and good bed at the end
of his day's Jaunt. ,
The hospitality of Maul has long
been famous. That hospitality will be
on tap in wholesale quantities during
the county fair.
Within a fair whose many and excel
lent features will be largely new to
Hawaii, and with citizens whose kind
liness, hospitality and progresslveness
is proverbial, Maul is certain on No
vember 30, December 1 and 2, to live
up to that slogan which has Inspired
Valley Islanders In countless lines of
endeavor: "Maul No Ka Oi." There
are several translations for this, one
of the best, I think, is this expression
of purpose, "Maui Shall Stand First!"
