Manoa To Be Put
On Far East Run
Sudden Decision Is Hard Blow To
Maui May Come Back But No
Assurance Given No Reason Yet
The Matson liner Manna, which sail
ed from Kahului for San Francisco
via Honolulu on Wednesday morning,
has possibly paid her last visit to
Maui. The news ciune as something
of a shock a week ago, when a cable
message was received in Honolulu
from Capt. Matson to effect that the
vessel would he sent to Manila ailer
her return from her present voyage.
Olivers on the vessel are in the dark
In t lip matter, as are in; conipan's
officials and agents in Honolulu unless
mail rdvices have been received with
in the day or two.
It is believed that Capt. Ma'. .on has
hi her been asked by th-i government
to dispatch the vessel to the Oiient,
or that the prospect of bis freight
rates has induced him to give the new
route a try-out. From Castle & Cooke,
Honolulu, the suggestion is given out
that the Manoa may make but one
round trip to Manila, during the off
If the Manoa Is taken permanently
from the run it will he a serious blow-
to Maul which has come to depend
upon the monthly trips of this vessel
both for passengers and freight
Nothing ' has been said concerning
placing a substitute ship on the run,
though so far as is known there is no
such ship available.
The Manoa arrived at Kahului last
Monday morning, having first taken
on 1000 tons of Pioneer sugar at Ka
anapali. She took from here 2100
tons of central Maui sugar and a
quantity of pines.
Has A Mystery
(Continued from Page One.)
The man with the big .45 is one
Richard Aylward. He is between 50
and 60 years of age, apparently, is in
civilian dress, and the Honolulu direc
tory says he has an office at 174 South
King street. But it fails to give his
business. He has some kind of a
badge, it is said, which he shows when
his authority is questioned, but whe
ther the star reads "chicken inspec
tor" or "Bluffem's Detective Agency,"
no one who has seen it seems to have
been able to make out.
The man has a couple of army tents
which he has pitched in a little gulley
beside the road, near the 7th mile
post. The gate he has erected across
the road insures that all automobiles
or other vehicles must stop, and when
they have stopped a general inquisi
tion is instituted, the purpose of which
seems to be far from clear. Those
who are known to the policeman who
assists in the work are allowed to
pass with little ceremony. Others
are given the third degree as to their
All kinds of guesses are being in
dulged in to explain the unusual pro
cedure, the most popular being that
the inspector expects to catch a Ger
man anthrax spy with his pockets full
of the dope, or that he is a draft re
gistration board man lying for slack
ers. So far as is known he has made
no arrests or seriously inconvenienced

Gave Concert That Was Frost And
Went Broke Left Debtors Behind
Planned To Come Back
The arrest in Honolulu last wee!: of
"Fritz Scavaneus," the "Danish" pian
ist, as a slacker, excited considerable
interest on Maui where the musician
gained some notoriety a few months
ago by departing without paying his
hotel bill and various other obl'ga
tions. The fact that the velvet coat
ed artist is not a Dane but an English
man with the very ordinary cogno
men of Wilfred James Singleton, wns
not the least Interesting feature of the
Singleton gave several recitals on
Maui, the last under the auspices of
the Maui Music Club being consider
able of a frost, and the musician left
for Honolulu flat broke, as he declar
ed to his creditors.
Whether or not he had wind of his
coming arrest and hoped to get out
of sight for a while, Singleton made
an effort to return to Maul a week
ago last Monday. He even started as
a member of the crew on the Ray
mond Ranch gasoline launch Makena
which sailed from Honolulu that eve
ning, but the boat's engine broke
down off Diamond Head and was com-
peled to put back.
Army Needs Truck
Drivers Says Goodhue
HILO, August 11 Dr. E. S. Goodhue
of this city, has received information
from the secretary of the American
Field Service that there is great need
for auto-truck drivers for the transport
service. The secretary, in part, says:
We want energetic, capable, young
men of good health. Men of the draft
age could go into this service.
"Ambulance drivers are not in so
great a demand just now and we are
only accepting them when they are
below twenty-one years of age or over
Dr. Goodhue adds that any young
man wishing to serve in the capaci
ty outlined above can apply to him
for further information. That there
will be an instant response to the call
goes without saying." There are
plenty of young men on this island
who are capable drivers and who
could be made very useful in France
at the present time.
