Livestock Men Keen
For Fair This Year
Fair Committee Rejects Suggestion To
Postpone Finance Committee Re
Maui's second county fair will be
held this year probably in September
or October. At least this was the
dec'Klon of the general committee of
11m first Maui county fair, held yester
day afternoon, following a successful
stampede engineered by the Maui
Swine Breeders' Association.
Because of the stra'n Incident to
maklrg the last fair the great suc
cess it was. a pood many business
men have been inclined to favor post
poring the next fair until 1918 and
combining it with the entertainment
of the seventh annual c'.vic conven
tion. Hut the newly orinlzed hog
association jumped on thU idea before
It. could be fairly expressed. Headed
by Harold Rice, and ably bucked by
F. G. Krauss, Lorrin Smith, Dr. Fitz
gerald and a number of other enthusi
asts, the meeting was all tut swept off
t.ts feet. A committee of five is to" be
named by President Wadsworth to
consider plans for the next fair, and
to report as soon as possible in order
that an early start may be made.
Livestock Men Oppose Delay
In arguing against deferring the
fair, the advocates declared that ail
classes of livestock raisers on Maui
will lose valuable ground If one season
Is allowed to pass. So earnest are
they in the matter that It was Intim
ated that even if the business men in
other lines lie down on the proposi
tion, the, fair will be turned injto a
livestock show and held anyway.
The meeting held yesterday after
noon was the first meeting of the
general committee since the fair. It
listened to a financial statement of
the executive committee, showing a
probable net balance of $1751.47 when
a few outstanding bills are collected,

To District Court
Harry Mossman Named Second Mag
istrate Question Of McKay's
Judge W. A. McKay was yesterday
reappointed district magistrate for
Wailuku district, by Governor Pink
ham, and Harry C. Mossman was at
the same time named second district
magistrate for the same district. The
creating of the place of second mag
istrate is .an innovation. Mossman
who Is a deputy tax assessor, will fill
the bench In absence of Judge McKay,
or in cases where the latter may be
Considerable interest centered in
Judge McKay's reappointment on ac
count of the fact that the Judge's
term had expired some weeks ago,
and by the report that-Aitorney Eug
ene Murphy had protested against the
reappointment on the ground that Mc
Kay had never been properly natura
lized. In connection with this, Judge
Kalua, was summoned to Honolulu to
confer with the Governor, he having
been circuit judge In 1900 when Mc
Kay is supposed to have secured his
papers. In. looking up the records
Clerk Schoenberg made the discovery
that a large number of other residents
were naturalized during the same
month (October 1900.) under appar
ently the same conditions which were
claimed to be Irregular. Among
these D. C. Lindsay, Nils Omsted, II
H. Strenbeck, Andrew Gross, W. S.
Nicoll, V. A. Vetlesen, S. Hocking,
Win. Henning, and S. E. Taxlor.

Local People National In Scope
Headed By Prominent Citizens
There may be a few people on Maul
who do riot know that a 1150,000. cor
poration has lately been organized
here. But the fact that some 125
Maui citizens hold the stock of the
new concern, and that their enthusi
asm has done anything except seal
their lips, makes it quite certain that
a majority is well aware of the fact.
That these 125 persons, have sub
scribed and paid for in cash on an
average of over $luu0 each is some
thing that perhaps even those who
have been watching the promotion of
the new company have not realized.
Yet this is the case, for the full three
fourths of the stock necessary to be
subscribed for in order to incorporate
has not only been taken, but paid for.
A Beneficient Scheme
The full title of the company, when
the incorporation has been perfected.
will be the "Stork System of Savings
