WAILUKU, MAUI CO., HAWAII, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1917.
Large Audience Assemble For The
Final Service Of Dedication At
Makawao Union Church
SINGING WAS FEATURE OF SERVICES
Baptismal Font Presented By The
Many Hawaiian And Japanese
Friends Of H. P. Baldwin
A large and appreciative audience,
assembled on laBt Sunday at the Ma
kawao Union Church. The occasion
was the dedication of the Baptismal
font of the church, which had been
presented by the former close Haw
aiian and Japanese associates of the
late Henry P. Baldwin. Addresses
were made in Hawaiian by Wm.
H. Rice of Llhue, Rev. Stephen L.
Desha, of HUo, Rev. David K. White,
of Lahalna, and Rev. John P. Erdman
of Honolulu. The remarks of Mr.
Desha were rendered into English by
Mr. Erdman, and Rev. Scudder's mes
sage was also In that language.
It would be hard to decide which
of the choirs was the best, for all of
five choirs represented, rendered their
selections with much fervor and show
ed considerable preparation and good
training. Especially melodious, how
ever, were the "Hear Our Prayer, O
Father," and the response following
the benediction, sung by the Molokat
Choir, and the anthem "Jerusalem,
f My Glorious Home", by the Paia choir.
The joint collections of the two ded
icatory sevlces amounted to a little
over one thousand dollars, and will
be given to the Hawaiian Board and
ttie Armenian Relief funds.
With the new grass coming up, out
lining the base of the new church,
the grounds laid out with much taBte
by James Lindsay of Haiku, are be
coming well defined in line and will

List Of Teachers
Last Monday morning, the early
morning run from Haiku to Wailuku
by auto was a more than usually
pleasant one. Evidently the young
idea had begun to stir early, for all
along the way, at each settlement
passed through, the roadsides were
dotted with important small persons,
all freshly starched and combed and
washed, needless to say, of all nat
ionalities and ages. The thing that
remained common to all was the
chatter, bright smiles and the general
air of anticipation which pervaded
each group, as they proceeded on
their way to renew, or in some cases
to begin, their acquisition of the learn
ing which Uncle Sam dispenses to all
resident in his domain. Those upon
whom will devolve the duty of elucida
tion, in the official list, received this
week from Superintendent Kinney,
Kinney, are the following:

ANSWER TO COMPLAINT
Denying all the allegations in the
complaint, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin,
through its attorneys, has filed in cir
cuit court its answer to the $25,000
alleged libel suit brought by Attorney
Eugene Murphy of Wailuku, Maui.
The Star-Bulletin ha3 demanded a jury
All the Russians in the Hawaiian
Islands, who have been waiting for the
orders to return to Russia, will now
have to apply direct to the Special
Delegate, Mr. Trautshold, who is sent
for the purpose from Harbin by the
Russian Government, and who is ex
pected to arrive in Honolulu on the
"Nippon Maru," due September 14.
DR. A. MAItQUES,
Vice-Consul of Russia.
Judging from the way the Wailuku
women are taking hold, the Red Cross
work accomplished by them will be a
good proportion of the work done on
the island. With their second meet
ing double in attendance, the third
meeting will be even larger, for now
the ladies understand that their own
sense of patriotism and willingness
to serve whenever and wherever
possible in this noble cause is the
only invitation needed and that all
workers are welcome and the work
Is in pressing need.
Delegates To Civic Convention Are
Assured Good Time In And
TO VISIT THE TRAINING CAMP
Union Church Services Will Be Held
, At Central Union Church On
On Saturday morning, in Honolulu,
all delegates to the Civic Convention
are supposed to be on hand for the
big doings planned in that city, to
occur on Sunday, Monday, and Tues
day, Sept. 16, 17, and 18th. They are
asked to proceed to the Promotion
Committee rooms in the Young build
ing, at once upon arrival to register
and receive all necessary credentials,
tickets and badges.
The program as first arranged has
been altered as will appear in the
'Instead of a trip around the isl
and on Sunday, September 16, for
visiting delegates to the coming Civic
Convention, and their relatives, the
central committee proposes to substi
tute a run to Halelwa, with a side trip
to the officers training camp at Scho-
field Barracks on the way home.
The plain truth is that there are
stretches of the road around the isl
and on the windward side so rough
that many owners of automobiles
were not willing to lend their cars.
The late legislature assigned half a
million dollars from the proceeds of
the sale of the territorial bonds to
build a concrete road through these
sloughs, sand pits and gullies, but the
bonds have not been sold and the road
remains what it was. In any event
construction could not have been com
menced for some months.
Having told the truth and shamed
the devil, the committee has the vir
tuous satisfaction of feeling that it is
rather better off than before. Unques
tionably the most interesting sight
the Islands have to show their own,
citizens just now is the officers train
ing camp. Those who live in Hono
lulu have a standing opportunity to
visit i.t but for many of the delegates
from Maui, Hawaii and Kauai their
trip to the convention is the only
chance they will have before the camp
closes to see their friends and rela
tives in training.
As originally planned the trip
around the island would not have left
time for a visit to the training camp
Making the shorter run to Haleiwa
and return there will be ample time
J. Ashman Beaven was named a com
mittee of one to perfect arrangements
with Capt. Elvln Hunt, in command
of the camp, and Raymond C. Brown,
chairman of the committee, will con
fer with department headquarters.
Cars will leave for Haleiwa be
tween nine and ten o'clock Sunday
morning assuring an early arrival for
luncheon, which will be served from
noon to two o'clock. The Royal Haw
aiian Band will play while the guests
are at table and afterward, if they
choose they may take the glass bot
torn launches for a view of the marine
gardens in the bay.
Sunday evening the delegates will
meet as a body for the first time at
Union services to be held in the Cen
tral Union Church. The Rev. David
Carey Peters, pastor of the Christian
.church will be in charge of the ser

April Of This Year Recipient
Of Victoria Cross
The following account is taken from
the Blairgowrie Advertiser, Scotland,
and is of Interest to Maul people, both
for the heroism it reports and for the
fact that Lieutenant Mackintosh is a
relative of a Puunene family.
Lieutenant Donald Mackintosh, late
Seaforth Highlanders, whose name la
included in the latest list of recipients
of the Victoria Cross, was the only
son of Colonel Donald J. Mackintosh,
C. B., M. V. O., Medical Superintendent
at Glasgow Western Division. He was
21 years of age and was educated at
Glasgow Academy, St. Ninian's Moffat,
and Feltes College. He was wounded
in April of last year and was killed in
action on April 11th of this year.

of which his uncle, Mr. James Fuller-

he came in contact. Telling the story

"Without exception, Lieutenant Mac
