Three more deaths among cattle

has had no known connection with

pasture Is on the slope of the moun

Antnmnhil Theorv Strenathened
In discussing the situation this
morning, Dr. J. C. Fitzgerald, deputy
territorial veterinarian for Maui stated
that the tipw outbreak is as utterly In
explicable as any of the others that
have occurred, except on tne meory
that It was deliberately planted by
human agency. The theory of C. S.
Judd, executive of the board, announc
ed some time since, that the disease
has been distributed from an automo

"El Oro was not distanced in the

Carev. who drove the' Hilo horse in
the free-for-all trotting and pacing
event in the Fourth of July races at
Kahului. And he goes on to explain:
"El Oro's check-rein broke in the
second heat which let his head down
and caused him to break badly. The
Judges didn't see what the trouble
was and disqualified Burghelli's horse
' for breaking, but not for being dls

run over, but by the time the trouble
was understood, Carmelita had been
taken from the track, given water, and
as a consequence was not in shape, so
we let it go. But it does El Oro an

Work has started on the big quarter

job was moved across the county road,

Job will require from 18 months to
two years to complete. When it is
done, Kahului will have a safe harbor

Maui that is fully organized for the
selective draft registration to be held

vision has been made for volunteer
registrars to all points from Kaupo to
Keanae. For the most the registration
places will be in the usual polling
places, though the board is not bound
to adhere to this rule, and additional
places will be provide in a number of
places for the convenience of the men

The board made the trip by sampon
stopping at the various points long
enough to select men to handle the
work and to distribute explanitory
literature in various languages. Sheriff
Crowell states that a fine spirit of co
operation was met with everywhere,
and he is confident that a full regis
tration will secured of men of all nat
ionalities between the ages of 21 and
31 inclusive .
Next week the board will probably
visit Molokai and Lanai, and later all
the other sections of the county will

may be as little difficulty In getting
the men who must register as possi
ble. The registration places will be
open from 7 o'clock in the morning
till 9 o'clock at night. No nationality
is excused from registering.
Drought Hurting Crops

The drought which is becoming
severe in most sections of Maui is be

Maui Man Invents
Idea Adopted By Defense Council
Details Not Available But Said To
Be Of Great Value-H. McCubbin
Is Pioneer Mill Engineer
For some time past friends of H.
McCubbin, the well-known and popular
mill engineer of the Pioneer Mill
Company, have been aware that he
some time ago perfected and sub
mitted to the war department designs
for a device to oppose the German
submarine. To those who know some
thing of McCubbin's mechanical skill
and mental make-up, it has not been
hard to believe that he might have
solved the big problem, and the -announcement
that his idea1 has been
accepted and is, or has been given a
tryout by the council of national de
fense comes as no great surprise.
News of the acceptance of McCubb
in's invention conies through Honolu
lu, the story being printed in Tues
day's Advertiser. It follows:
"Men, money and food supplies will
not be the only contributions from Ha

After Grand Hotel
Sale Of Property At Noon Tomorrow
Must Bring $45,000 To Satisfy
Indebtedness Honolulu Syndicate
May Be Bidder
Considerable interest centers in the
commissioner's sale at noon tomorrow
of the Grand Hotel pro'perty, Wailuku
under foreclosure of mortgage. Wheth
er or not the property will bring much
more than the $35,000 necessary to
satisfy the mortgage claims is a
question. It will require some $45,000
to satisfy all of the indebtedness
against the company, not counting the
amount paid in by the stockholders
who stand to lose in any event.
The presence of n. W. Shingle, of
the Henry Waterhouse Trust Com
pany, and one or two other prominent
Honoluluans (luring the past week or
10 days, has given rise to rumors that
outside interests are planning to bid
on the hotel. One of the stories is
that the Territorial Hotel Company
which owns the Young, Hawaiian, Mo
ana, and Seaside hotels in Honolulu,
's planning to add the Grand to its
string of tourist resorts.
The sale will take place from the
front steps of the court house, Wat
luku, and will be conducted by E. R.
Bevins, appointed commissioner by
the local circuit court.
Police Puzzled By Case
Ot Would-Be Bride
The 17-year old daughter of Tarn
Chong, of Paia, who wants to wed
Alfred Alu, but who cannot get the
consent of her parents, is still being
held by the police. She is in charge
of the police matron, and her disposi
tion is something that is puzzling the
department considerably. The girl in
sists that she will not go home, and
her father is said to wish her sent to
the reform school. As she is within
less than a year of being of age, she
could be confined there for but a brief
In reporting the case two weeks
ago, the police department was mixed
on the name of the object of Miss
Tarn's affections, it being stated that
he was Ed. Alu, whereas it appears
that it is Alfred, a brother Ed. Alu is
a married man, and at present is an
inmate of the Kula Sanitarium.

of Paia, who sought a license to wed
a iKlipino, but who was refused a
license on account of her youth, con
