My Dear Sir:
A Merry Cristmas and a Happy New
Year with Aloha to you! Your regular

May I ask you to extend through
your columns, my message of Peace
and Good-Will to alH my good friends
on Maui? I count so many down in
Maui No Ka Oe that I should not do
anything else but write to them from
now till New Year, if I sent a message
to each one personally. My work here
takes time, so I am asking you to let
each one of my friends read this in
your paper, and tell them to "take it
personally from me."
Let's increase our good-will and
perhaps Peace will follow soon. God
grant it! .
I can but re-echo the Carol for you
"We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell,
Oh. come to us, abide with us
And Lord Emmanuel!"
Yours for all that. Is good

Back By Hilo Sheriff
Arrested on Monday last on inform
ation from Hawaii, Narciso Torales,
said to be wanted on the Big Island to
answer a charge of rape, was taken
back on Wednesday evening by
Sheriff Pua who came over for the
purpose. The arrest was made by
Sheriff Clem Crowell who found h's
man at work in a cane field at Ha
makuapoko. Torales, who is a Porto Rican had
been a fugutive from justice from Ha
waii for a number of months. He was

Russians In Hawaii
Have Chance To Return
A. Marques, Russian consul in Hono
lulu, has sent out the request for all
Russians in the territory who are de
sirous of returning to Russia to com
municate with him immediately. The
communication implies that transport
ation will be furnished to such Rus
s 'tin subjects and their families. It is
to be presumed also that they will
iave a good chance to serve as cannon-fodder
for the "Little Father"
when they get back to Europe.
Hawaii Supervisors May
Sue Foss On His Bond
Contractor J. C. Foss, Jr., who built
the Kuhio Bay wharf and concrete
connecting road, at Hilo, Is likely to
be sued on his bond on account of
alleged defects in the road, according
to reports from the Crescent City. It
is claimed that the road development
"bumps" "at the expans'on joints, and
the contractor was put under $1000
bond to remedy these should he be
called upon to do so within a year.
The Hawaii supervisors now wish to
enforce this agreement. County At
torney Beers, it is said, is not sure
that the bond is in such terms that it
can be invoked.

Steamer Maui To Be
New Vessel In Cemmission In March
Many Changes In Commanders
Due To Lurline Accident
The Maston Navigation Company's
new steamer "Maui" is to be launch
ed In San Francisco tomorrow. It is
expected that she will be ready to
make her maiden voyage the latter
part of March. It is understood that
the new vessel will be in command of
Capt. Peter Johnson, of the Wilhel
mina, and there will be a general
shifting of commanders and crews in
the fleet. Because of the dismissal
of Capt. Troel K. Smith, on account
of the grounding of the Lurline on Ma
kapuu Point some months ago, the
seniority of promotion is also changed
It is now considered likely that
Capt. F. M. Edwards of the Manoa
will get the Wilhelmina; Capt. A. L
Soule of the Lurline will be given the
Manoa In place of Capt. Smith, who
was to get her; Capt. William M. Rind

created to fill the Hyades vacanry.

inue to command the Matsonia and
Capt. J. W. .Tory will rema'n shipper
of the Hilonian.
