Liable Says Board
Hearing In Two Kahului Cases Under
Workmen's Compensation Law
May Be Appealed To Courts On
On appeal from the findings of
committee ot arbitration, tho Maui
industrial accident hoard on Tuesday
aiternoon neara evidence in connoe
tton with the deaths of Kumaeichi
Akiyama and Tomiki Urata employees
respectively of J. Onlshi and of' the
Japanese Mercantile Company, boili
of Kahului. In each case the board
found that the deceased employee had
come to his (loath through accident.
in the course of his employment, and
that the insurance company ropresen
ting the employer, was responsible
ior compensation to the dependents
in accordance with the law. It is
probable that both cases will be ap
pealed to the courts.
The cases are being contested by
the Employer's Liability Assurance
Corporation, Ltd., of London, in which
the employers are insured. Holmes
Olson, attorneys for the company
were represented by Paul Bartlett.
Killed In Runaway
In the Akiyama case it was shown
that tho deceased, a driver for J. Oni
shi, was found unconscious on the
oad just outside of Kahului on Aug
ust 25, last, having evidently been
thrown from his wagon which had
collided with a telephone pole, pro
oably in a runaway. He died shortly
nfter. Dr. Sugamura, who attended
the man. testified that he had detect
ed a slight smell of liquor on the pat
evidence to show that the deceased
had been drunk, and all the testimony
was to the effect that he was a tem
perate man. Hut on this ringle point
the insurance company chose to make
In the case cf Tomiki Urala, the
testimony showed tat te deceased
had Iieen an order man for the Japan
ese Mercantile Company, and that on
the morning he met his death he had
been sent by his boss to the Kahului
fttore on a bicycle to get certai
Kooda needed to fill an order. As he
was returning he collided with an
automobile and sustained a fractured
skull. The sole contention of the in
surance company's attorney was that
the employee did not come to his
death from an accident "arising out
of" his employment, but that the risk
he took on the public street was a
risk common to the public generally
and had nothing to do with his duties
or regular employment.
The hearing was attended by quiti
of prominent Japanese and others in
terested in the matter. A good deal
of criticism was heard following the
hear'jig over the fact that a fight must
be made to get a settlement that was
supposed to have been provided for

Pleads Not Guilty
(Continued from Page One.)
Something of a surprise was tho
announcement coming from Honolulu
last week of the marriage there on
Wednesday evening of Mrs. Emily R.
Morgan, of Seattle, to Dr. George S.
Aiken, of Wailuku. The announce
ment of the engagement was made in
December, but only the Intimate
friends of the young people had been
previously advised of the time fixed
for the wedding ceremony, or in fact
of Mrs. Morgan's arrival in Honolulu
from Seattle. The Advertiser, of Ho
nolulu, gives the following account of
"The home of Dr. and Mrs. William
Rogers was the scene of a very nrettv
wedding on Wednesday evening when
Canon Ault read the service which
united Mrs. Emily Morgan, of Seattle
and Dr. George S. Aiken of Wailuku
Maul. One 'corner of the drawing
room was made into a bower of pink
.na wn'te. Koses and chrysanthemum
be'ng used with a background of
green, and here the ceremony was
"Miss Irene Aiken and Dr. J. H
Waddel, were the attendants, and Dr.
Rogers gave the bride away."
After their honeymoon, ' Dr. and
Mrs. Aiken will go to Wailuku. to
make their home."
Dr. Aiken and his bride will arrive
tomorrow morning by the Manoa and
be welcomed by a large htimber of
friends. They will soon go to house
keeping in the beautiful new home
now nearing completion on High
street. Mrs. Aiken, who was a resi
dent of Maul for a year or more, and
therefore no stranger here, will be
welcomed back wilh much pleasure
by all who know her.
Mark Twain On Maui
Subject Of New Folder
ine entnusiasm or Kd. Towse. pro
motion committee member and gen
eral live wire, is said to be responsible
in large measure for an especially at
tractive folder which has lust made
its appearance, entitled "Mark Twain
on Maui." Towse banks strong on
Maul's scenic wonders to bring tour
ists to the territory, and he also be-
lieves that no one has ever done much
better in describing some of these
than did Mark Twain after a trip to
this island some fifty years ago. The
noted writer at that time visited Iao
Valley, and made the ascent of Hale
akala, and he described his experi
ences on these occasions in his book
Roughing It." The front of the fold
er bears an excellent picture of the
writer, and good cuts of the big crater
and of the Valley embellish the other
pages. The text is entirely Mark
Twain's description of his visit.
A large number of the folders have
been sent to the mainland, according
to W. O. Aiken, Maui's representative
to the promotion committee, to be used
in connection with the campaign for
summer travel which is well under
way. Mr. . Aiken is confident that
Maui will profit much from this special
bit of publicity.
