Maui Teachers For
1918 Are Announced
Some Are Tentative And All Subject
To Results Of Present Examina
tionsContracts Made Later
Some Vacancies To Be Filled
Below is published the complete
list of teachers appointed for Maui
for next year, in so far as it was made
by the board of school commissioners
at its meeting in Honolulu last week.
In connection with I'M Superintend
ent II. V. Kinney makes the follow
"These appointments were made
subject to the condition that all are
tentative and no contracts are to be
issued until after the final grade ex
aminations are over, when contracts
shall be issued as soon as possible,
except in cases where marked in
adequacy of the examination results
or violation of the rules make It ap
pear best to withhold action until the
next meeting of the Commissioners;
also excepting all cases where teach
ers are to attend Summer School or
take examinations. No teacher who
lias been instructed by the Board of
Examiners to take the teachers' ex
aminations and who fails to try to do
so, shall be reappointed.
"The list of appointments includes
a number which are tentative for
various reasons, among them being
the fact that all the Counties have
not as yet indicated where they will
be able to erect new buildings. For
this reason it Is possible that some
teachers who have been assigned to
places, with the expectation that new
buildings are to be provided there,
may be transferred to other schools
in case the Counties fail to provide
the rooms expected.
"You vill note that there are still
some vacancies. Some of these have
practically been filled, but the appoint
ments cannot be announced for one
reason or another."

No Doubt Germs Were Intentionally

land Under Quarantine
Up to noon today there have been
no new cases since Tuesday morning.
Suspicious cases at Kihel, Makawao,
and Haiku all proved not to be an
thrax. The six cases of the disease
cn Maui have all been in the Haleakala
Ranch pasture where It originally de
veloped. Dr. Fitzgerald announced today
that the quarantine has been modified
to permit the shipment to Honolulu of
beef cattle for immediate slaughter
only, upon permit signed by himself.
The suspicion that the outbreaks of
anthrax among the cattle of Kauai and
Oahu was the result of a malicious de
sign was almost made a certainty by
the outbreak of I ho disease on Maui
last Friday. The outbreak occurred
in a pasture of the Haleakala Ranch,
some distance below Makawao, and
just mauka of the Keahua polo
giounds. There is absolutely no like
lihood that the plague could have
have reached the paddock through
natural channels from Oahu or Kauai.
lr. Norgaard, territorial veterinarian,
and Dr. Fitzgerald, government veter
inarian for Maui, are positive that
the Maul foci is distinct from either
of these other.
The death of two cows on last Fri
day afternoon were promptly reported
to H. A. Baldwin, of the Maui Agri
cultural Company, who had the car
cases covered with oil and guarded
while Dr. Fitzgerald, who was in Hon
olulu was summoned by wireless. He

The entertainment at the Kahului
Community House last Saturday even

were more than 200 present and the
sale of seats netted the committees
an even hundred dollars above ex

up for the first number, two humorous
selections by the local male quartet.
David Rattray and Alvin Robinson
sang the first tenor and first base re

Pleasant took the other parts. It was
the first appearance of this musical
coalition. They struck the keynote
of the evening's program of music and
The girl's chorus trained by Mrs.
Buck sang two Hawaiian songs and
responded to an encore. The girls
are all members of the local girl's
club and demonstrated the fact that
they can sing as well as play basket
ball. "A manager in Trouble", was the
next number. The presence of the
Dutchman who could not find his dog
and the Irish lady whose "fayther and

enough for the manager. Mr. Lilico
and Mrs. Taylor took these parts ex
ceedingly well, while M iss Robinson

Change In Law Cuts
Court Jrm Short
Oversight Responsible For Reducing
Maui's June Term To One Week
For Trials Only Important Crimi
nal Cases Likely
Because the last legislature saw fit
to so amend the laws, when Maui's
delegation apparently wasn't looking,
that no court term may be held dur
ing July or August in the territory,
i he coming term, of circuit court at
l.ahaina will be exceedingly short.
The grand jurors will meet next Wed
nesday and the trial of cases will be
gin on the following Monday, June
25, which leaves but 6 days till the
end of the month. For this reason
probably all of the civil cases will
have to go over, and only the more
'mportant criminal cases tried.
Maui is now the only county In the
territory which does not have a con
linous court term, the juries being
called together whenever the presid
ing judge deems the volume of busi
ness warrants. This was apparently
Ios-t sight of when, for the benefit of
the. lawyers, who want a vacation
time, July and August were made
courtless for the whole territory.

The board of license commissioners
Is meeting today for the purpose of
passing upon the applications to sell
booze in the county for the coming
year. Up to 3 o'clock this afternoon,
most of the licenses had been granted,
but a fight was on re the re-issuance
of licenses for Hana, and the matter
of renewing the license of the Grand
Hotel, in Wailuku was also hanging
fire on account of the hotel company's
affairs being in the hands of the rece

Maui And Matsonia
Through a cable message received
by Castle & Cooke, on Tuesday, it was
teamed that the government has taken
over the Matsonia and the Maui, the
two largest vessels of the Matson
fleet. The vessels, which are rated
as auxilliary cruisers, are provided
with fittings for 4 6-inch guns each.
It is believed that both are to be used
as troop ships on the Atlantic. The
Maui, which sailed for the coast this
week, will probably not be back. The
Matsonia will make one more trip.

The Maui polo team defeated the
Oahu team in last Monday's game by
the big score of 10 to 3. The game
was a good one, and the splendid

Unless the anthrax epidemic should

authoritatively stated by Dr. Fitzger
