THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1917.
Maui No Ka 01
The residents of the Island of Maul,
knowing the natural charms of their
Island and conscious of their ability
well to care for the visitor who may
come, have decided to make known
in a businesslike campaign of adver-
tls'ng just what Maul has to offer the
tourist-visitor and juBt why a visit
to Hawaii is incomplete unless it In
cludes at least a few days on the Val
And certainly Maul "has the goods."
It Is the Isle available most easily
from Honolulu, and while there are
no active volcanoes, in the ordinary
sense of the world, such as the Island
of Hawaii boasts of, there are on Maui
other natural wonders the like of
which are not to be seen elsewhere
on this earth, while the scenic beaut
ies of a dozen of the easy trips to
be made about the island have been
enraptured over by re-enthused world
Haleakala, "the House of the Sun,"
as a wondfr spot vies with Kilauea
This Maui crater, extinct for so long
that no record of its fires remain
even in Hawaiian legend, la a great
inverted bowl, twenty miles around
the rim and more than seven mMes
across, perched ten thousiind feet
above the ara. It forms the closest
thing on earth to the great pits to be
seen on the surface of the moon
through a powerful telescope. From
the rim of this dead crater are to be
viewed sunsets and sunrises so marv
ellous in colorful grandeur that none
yet has been able to write an adequ
ate description of either.
The unwlnd'ng miles of tropical
luxuriance along the "Ditch Trail" the
deep, cool, green depths of fern-embowered
Iao Valley, the pastel-tinted
cliffs of the Lahaina drive, the shim
mering sea channels and the rainbow
arched gorges, all give to Maui its
right to the Maul motto "Maui no
ko oi" Maul, the First.
And Mauiites who love their island
want others to see and love it too,
and the last people in the world to
hinder Maui's effort to attract the
traveling tourist are the people of Ho
nolulu, because we have -seen Mauii
ourselves and are able to add to the
recommendation that all others able
also go and see as fair and as wonder
ful a variety of landscape and sea
scape as lies beneath the sun Adver
Doesn't Like Censorship
Of course if the United States is at
war with Germany nobody must know
anything about it. That is evidently
one of the principles of the Navy
Department, according to the state
ments of those who think they know.
... Anyway, a strict censorship has
been established over the wireless
service of the Islands and only the
most harmless messages, warranted
not to explode, are permitted to be
sent from one island to the other of
this Territory. Even on the Mainland
the authorities are not segregating
counties. But then it is all in the
Just what harm is the telegraphing
of news which everybody knows local
ly to another point is one of the myst
eries of militarism. Even in England
the censorship is not as strict as it is
in Hawaii. Hllo Tribune.
Kauai, favored by soil and other
conditions that make good road work
possible at a less expense than on
the other islands, and having less
wear and tear of travel, is satisfied
with road conditions as they exist, and
it must be admitted that the roads
of the Garden Island are much the
best, all around, of the Territory.
But, isn't it a trifle selfish of Kauai
to desire to prevent the other islands
from getting what will here correspond
to the "state highways" of the main
land. Because there are not tourist
attractions on Kauai difficult to reach
because of the lack of gbod roads, is
that a good reason why Kauai should
oppose a project to have the roads
to Haleakala and Kilauea improved
and made permanent, or block the
proper buil?ing of the wonderful Pall
drive or Roand Top drive of Oahu?
Eight girls, all victims of Filipinos,
were sent to the Industrial School by
Judge Quinn, last week. Two of the
girls were eleven years old, one
twelve and the others fourteen. Had
this occurred in Georgia there would
have been eight first class lynchings.
In Hawaii they receive piffling sent
ences, that have no deterrent effect.
The democrats of Honolulu are sore
over the selection of a Malnlander for
their postmaster. So much so in fact
that a protest has been sent to Wash
ington voicing that which purports to
the sentiment of the local democratic
party. If there were less friction
among the Honolulu Jeffersonlans, and
a possibility of there ever being any
thing like unity of purpose among
them, maybe these "carpet-baggers."
would not be foisted upon them. Ha
Trying To Waterproof Court House
Notwithstanding the fact that the
Maul court house has been practically
replastered and refinished throughout
its interior, on account of damage
done to ceiling and walls from water,
it is stated that the building is still
far from waterproof. The roof is
tight, but the water finds its way into
the building through the porous con
crete blocks of which the Btructure
is built. Steps are now being taken
to have the exterior treated so as to
make the walls Impervious to even
the most penetrating storms.
