Many New Foci Of
Anthrax On Maui
Rapid Spread Of Disease During Week
Conlirm Belief In Malicious Char
acter Of Its Spread Fine Horses
Miles From Other Cases Die
When the Maul News went to press
a week ago there was one known focus
of anthrax Infection on Maul and six
deaths. Up to noon today there are
6 distinct foci, widely scattered, and
24 deaths. These Include 7 head of
high grade Poled Angus cattle of the
Grove ranch in a herd of 450, and 3
fine brood mares with foal, of the Ha
waiian Commercial & Sugar Company
in a herd of some 85.
Dr. Norgaard, territorial veterinar
ian, and Dr. Fitzgerald, deputy veteri
narian for Maul, have been working
almost night and day Immunizing
ctock, stock, and following up clews
of new outbreaks. They believe they
have the disease fairly well In hand,
but decline to even guess where the
next outbreak will occur:
The veterinarians have no hesitancy
In declaring that all of the food on
Maui have been deliberately planted
by some person or persons. It is Just
2 weeks today since the first deaths
Following the outbreak In the Apa
na pasture of the Haleakala ranch,
below Makawao, two weeks ago, a
sheep died In the Haleakala ranch
house paddock last Friday night, and
a calf on the place of Miss Rose Crook
the same night, both of which cases
were pronounced anthrax. Both of
these places are several miles separe
ted from each other and from the ori
ginal scene of outbreak.
' On last Saturday the disease made
ils appearance on the Maliko gulch
pasture of the Maui Agricultural Com
pany's Grove ranch ,in a herd of 450
pure-bred Toled Angus cattle. The
disease may possibly have spread nat
urally to this place from the Crook
place which adjoins It. Seven cattle
of this herd have died to date. The
rosi have all been immunized.
On Saturday also appeared a case
of anthrax in the Dutcner pauuocn. ui
the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar
Company, near Camp 7, which Is in
(lie Kihel section of the plantation,
and many miles from the scene of the
other outbreaks. Five head of steers

The following challenge from the
base ball team of the Japanese-American
Citizens' Association, of Hilo is
now being considered by the Maui
Athletic Association. If the Hilo
team's Ideas are not too extravagant
It is quite likely that it will be given
a chaiwe to play a series on the local
g iie letter to the Maul News says:

Would Base Water
Lease On Price Sugar
G. K. Larrison, head of the terrl
torial hydrography division, is on
Maui this week looking into the mat
ter of the renewal of a number of
water right leases. One of these
leases for water from the government
lands watershed on the Koolau Bide
of Maui, has already expired, and
others soon will do so.
Mr. Larrison has suggested as a
basis for the new leases that they be
'made on a sliding scale the rental to
i'the territory varying according as the
price of sugar fluctuates. This Idea
is being considered by the plantation
heads and also by Governor Pinkhani.
The Governor has not Indicated what
position he is prepared to take in the
liana Voters Again
Sign Two Petitions
Many Names On Anti-Booze Petition
Also Found On Wet List Grand
Hotel And Ah Hu Get Licenses Re
newed At the adjourned meeting of the
board of license commissioners, last
Saturday morning, a renewal of the
liquor license of the Grand Hotel wns
granted, there being no further objec
tions than those of the day before.
The fact that the hotel is in the hands
of a receiver and is to be sold to sat
isfy mortgages on. the property, was
the chief reason for the hitch iu grant
ing the lvecnse.
Ah Hu, the restaurant keeper at
Waihee, who was charged with selling
liquor without, bonefide meals also
got his renewal, after he had been
severely cross-examined. He was
given to understand that a few crack
ers on the side do not constitute a
meal and that the quickest way he
can lose his license is to keep up the
custom he is charged with.
The liquor Inspector of the board,
Frank Sommerfeld, was not on hand
during the meeting to- answer ques
tions, having been culled to Honolulu,
it was reported, to have his teeth fix
Hana Again Is A Joke
Hana, which was again granted a
wholesale license to J. A. Medeiros
and a saloon license to L. Y. Aiona,
ia noted in last week's Maui News,
again flooded the board with petit 'ons
and letters both for nnd against the
issuance of licenses, and again a large
part of the names or residents In the
district appeared on petitions on both
sides of the proposition. Out of a pet
ition of 95 against any licenses being
granted, 40 names also appear on one
asking that a license be granted to
Medeiros, and deducting other names
of persons not registered as voters,
only 25 are left.
It Is reported that Medeiros Is to
voluntarily close his wholesale house
through some kind of arrangement
with Aiona, so that Hana will have but
the one establishment In actual opera
ation. This report comes from good
authority, but has not been verified.
Three Sections Sure
Of Garden Prizes
Molokai, Hana And Lahaina Each To
Get A Trip Prize Central Maui
To Get Other Three Committee
Adopts Important Plan
At a meeting of the children's
gardens committee held at the Alex
ander House last Friday afternoon, it
was decided to set apart one of the
six chief prizes (trips to Honolulu)
to each of the following three sections
Molokai, Hana d!strlct from Kailua
to Kaupo, and west Maui for Honoko-
hau to Olowalu. The other three first
prizes will be awarded to the owners
of the three best gardens wherever
located on central Maul.
Thi9 decision was arrived at after the
matter had been discussed at consider
able length. Because of the difficulty
of any one corps of judges being able
to properly inspect the gardens in the
three sections first named, these sec
tions will be permitted to do their
own judging, or to appoint their own
For central Maul the chairman of
the children's gardens department has
been authorized to appoint a commit
tee to select a board of three judges
to make the final decision. One of
these judges will possibly be a govern
ment official from Honolulu If he can
be obtained. The committees in charge
of the various districts will each de
cide as to the best of their own
gardens, and these best will be sub
m It ted for the inspection of the judges,
together with all reports, produce, or
other data concerning them.
Director Mathews states that the
young gardners all over the county
are now settling down to hard work
and are making fine progress. There
are about l'JUO gardens now In the

Knife Wielders Find
Grand Jury Lenient
Four Pleas Of Guilty Bring Peniten
tiary Sentences Sam Kaahui To
Plead Next Week Lahaina Term
To Be A Short One
Completing ils work in one day, the
grand jury of the Second Circuit
Court was discharged "yesterday and
the court adjourned until Monday
when the trial of cases will begin.
The grand jury found 6 true bills
and in three cases Investigated,
brought in no bills.
The "no bill" cases were perhaps
more interesting than the others. The
first two Fortoso Hubin nnd Estanis-
lau Cacaeba, Filipino friends living
in a wniknpu camp, got into a quar-
el, about 10 (lays ago because one
wanted to play the phonograph at 11
o'clock at night while the other want
ed sleep. They fought it out with
knives, and both were pretty badly
cut up. Evidently on the theory that
both were sufficiently punished, and
nasmuch as they appear to be as
sood friends as ever, the grand jury
couldn't find an indictment.
Wife Slasher Also Released
M. Nakamura, the Japanese who
slashed his wife's face with a knife
when she confessed her Indiscretions
with another man, and who almost
cut his own hand off when the knife
slipped, was also let off by the grand
jurors. The couple appear to have
made up their diiferences, and are
living together again.
Indictments were found against the
Pokini Kalawaia, for burglarizing
the Paia Hank, pleaded guilty and
was sentenced on Thursday to not less
than 5 years and to pay the costs.
l'ranclsco Diaz, for burglary of the
Hamakuapoko postoffice and railway
station, aslo pleaded guilty and re
ceived a like sentence. .
August Kekona and Manuel Gou-
veia, the two convicts who broke out
of the Kula jail to steal an automobile
from Joaquin Garcia for the purpose
of takin.1? a joy ride, pleaded guilty to
a charge of "malicious conversion," a
new crime created by the last legis
lature, and were each sentenced to
serve 2 years at expiration of their
Samuel Kaahui, was indicted on
two counts, one for the murder of Noa
Kaaa, and the other for arson, it being
charged that he burned the body of
his victim in his own house. This is
the Ukumehame valley murder case
of some weeks ago. In this case plea
was reserved until next Monday. D.
H. Case was assigned as council to
defend the accused.
On Secret File
One Indictment was placed on the
secret file pending the arrest of the
accused, who is said to be in Hono
lulu at the present time.
The term of court is being held In
Lahaina and will be concluded next
week under the new law which pro
hibits holding court terms in July or
August. It is doubtful if any of the
civil calendar can be heard at this
term owing to lack of time.

There is just one thing that can
prevent the race meet of the Maui
County Fair & Racing Association on
the Fourth of July from being the
