Criminal Cases For
Circuit Court Term
There are eight criminal cases now
on the calendar to come before the
.s rand jury at the coming Circuit Court
term, witli the probability of more be
ing added. It is not now believed
that any of these will take a great
deal of time. The cases are as fol
Territory vs. Florancia Mendosa,
statutory, the crime alleged to have
been committed at Haiku.
Territory vs. Klario Asurcna, bur
glary in the second degree at llamaku
apoko. Territory vs. Kamckichi, malicious
burning at Wailuku.
Territory vs. Tatshusi Saito, statu
tory, offense alleged to have been com
mitted at ruunene.
Territory vs. Paul Chuck, burglary
first degree, crime alleged to have
been committed at Wailuku.
Territory vs. Tomas Vasmas, as
sault with a weapon, crime alleged to
have been committed at Hamakuapo
ko. Territory vs. I'at rermchu, burg
lary, crime alleged to have been com
mitted at I'aia.
TetrUory vs. Alfred Fernandez,
seduction, crime alleged to have been
committed at l'aia.
Indications are that the term will
be a short one and that most of the
time will be taken up in the hearing
of civil matters.
Red Cross Violations
The following are some of the mis
representations and infractions of the
Red Cross that are being carried on
throughout the territory of Hawaii
and that have been brought to the
attention of The Hawaiian Islands
Commit tee of Red Cross Nursing Ser
vice: "Performances and benefits being
given whereby a percentage of the
funds only is turned over to the Red

tation for sales of articles of their
trade on a percentage basis."
"Individuals are improperly using

National Guard May
Soon Go Into Camp
The Honolulu Advertiser of Wednes
day contained the following:
Providing the new bond of Major
Short, of the tpiartermaster depart
ment of the Hawaiian National Guard,
reached Waslrngton yesterday, and
that his final accounts for a subse
quent allotment of money arrive there
Friday, funds for the forthcoming en
campment of the guard this fall may
be released, and .the actual date se
lected for the entire guard, including
the units on Hawaii, Maui and Kauai,
to go into camp for about two weeks.
Up to yesterday no word had been
received at armory headquarters from
Washington, and the guard will con
tinue to mark time, but in preparation
for the big event.
Owing to the demand for a more in
tensive training in new warfare, and
because trench systems and a bombug
section have been established near the
Reserve Ollicers' Training Camp, the
encampment may be held at Schofield
Barracks, so that this instruction may
It is the impression among guards
men that the encampment may be held
in November, as the sugar planters are
then cleaning up the harvest for this
year and there are a few weeks of in

readiness to tackle the new, or 1918,

that President Monroe did not announce any promises regarding Amer
ican attitude towards the rest of the contingent, while Japan now volunt
arily announces that she engages not to violate the integrity of her
neighbors, to observe principle of open door and equal opportunity, at

trip to Molokni, whither they had
gone three days before on county busi
ness. The official party landed nt Honolua
and went around by sampan to Pu-
koo, where they looked over a new
school cottage, which will be complet
ed in about a week. Everything was
found to be in good shape. Koad

referred to the grand jury.

basket ball on the camp playground.

The Settlement plans to bold its
second aniHial rummage sale on Sat
urday afternoon and evening, October

sale proved to be very popular last
year; a large number of people avail
ing themselves of the opportunity to
buy nice things at greatly reduced
rales.. The proceeds of the sale go
to the regular Settlement fund.
Many people are making use of the
Settlement beach bouse in Kahului.

Japanese Join Red Cross
Many Japanese of Maui are plan
ning to join the American lied Cross.
There was some misunderstanding
about this, the Japanese being under
the impression that they could only
join the Japanese lied Cross. Mr.
Otsuka, of the Maui Record, has done
much valuable work in explaining
th's matter to the Japanese, and the
results are now beginning to show.

For The Month
Many Arrests Made During Month
But Few Have Nerve To Face The
Court, Preferring To Forfeit Bail
Receipts Are Large
The report of the police department
for the month of September will show-
that 2.",G arrests were made, an aver
age of something over eight a day.
Of this number 230 avoided appear
ance in court, forfeitting bail in the
total Mini of $1518. Of the cases
brought to trial there were 21 convic
tions, one nolle prosequi and four dis
charges. Fines and costs amounted to $141.
75, of which $106.75 was paid in, bring
ing the total or receipts for the month
up to $1,(124.75. Twelve persons were
sent to jail for terms.
A very large proportion of the ar
rests were for gambling, while liquor
was at the bottom of most of the re
mainder, in one way or another.
In the matter of crimes the record
for the month was very good, the few
offenses under this head being not
Miss. Harrison's Recitals
A most rewarding program greeted
the music-lovers who came out to
hear Miss Alice E. Harrison's organ
recital at Central Union church Tues
day evening. The numbers, all of a
d:stinctly melodious character, were
so skilfully diversified and rendered
with such sureness of technique and
sensitiveness of interpretation as to
make the evening of unusual interest.
The religious education committee,
under whose auspices these concerts
are given, is pleased to note from the
greatly increased attendance that they
are proving their value to the com
For Maui Teachers
By the early part of the new year
all of the teachers' cottages of Maul
will be supplied with furniture, such
as bedsteads, chairs, bureaux, etc.
Some of them have been fitted out al
ready and the others will be with as
little delay as possible. The county
will supply the lumber and the boys
in the vocational classes of the schools
will make the furniture. This all
means that .after this year, new
teachers arriving here will have very
little to buy in order to set up quite
comfortable "house keeping."
Maui, it is believed, is the first is
land in the group to attempt the
furnishng of teachers' cottages on a
large scale; although something has
been done in a less general way along
this line on Oalvu and other islands.
An Expensive Caper
K. Maeno, of Wailuku, thought he
would make a little money on the side
and rented his automobile, without,
however, obtaining a liveryman's

the sum of $25.

Pleased With Outlook
For Montana Bingham
C. C Balleiityne, who has just re
turned to the Islands from an inspec
tion of the Montana-Dinghani proper
ty, much of the stock of which is held
on Maui, has this to sav:
In regard to the property interests
I find that these consist of the Mon
tana Bingh-im property and tunnei,
the Valentin-? location, the Tiewaukee
loci., ion, the Thrush location and the
Fort una; with the exception of the
Montana-Dinghani, the company does
not posses title to any of the others,
but holds the same under option of
purchase, the conditions of which re-
quire fulfillment in order that the fee
simple of all the properties will be
vested in the Montana-Bingham Con
solidated Mining Company.
"In addition to the foregoing, the
company owns 158,000 shares and 10
per cent of the net proceeds of the
Bingham Amalgamated Copper Co..
consisting of 300 acres of good ground.
The amounts still to be paid to ac
quire the Thrush, Valentine and Tie
waukee amounting to $3750 for the
Thrush, $28,000 for the Valentine and
$37,500 for the Tlewaukee, in all
Want Clear Titles
"This ought to be provided so that
the clear titles to these properties
may be obtained. Now in regard to
the Fortuna, it is the part of wisdom
that the full ownership of this be
secured, and in order to do this the
interest of Governor Bamberger
should be obtained and this can. be
done by a stock payment.
"As to the Higgins quarter interest,
this consists of a small cash payment
and the balance in stock which can be
converted into cash. The sound thing
to do is to acquire the absolute con
trol of all the properties. Instead of
the Montana-Bingham having 45-80ths
of tin- Fortuna property, the expendi
ture of a small amount of cash and
some stock will secure the whole in
terest." Women Suffrage Up
To The Electorate
The U. S. onate, on September 13,
passed the following bill, which em
powers the Legislature of Hawaii to
submit the question of suffrage for
women to the voters of the Territory:
Be it enacted, etc., That the Legis
lature of the Territory of Hawaii be,
and it is hereby, vested with the pow
er to provide that, in all elections
authorized to be held by the organic
act of the Territory of Hawaii, female
citizens possessing the same qualifica
tions as male citizens shall be entitl
ed to vote.
Sec. 2. That the said legislature Is
further hereby vested with the power
to have submitted to the voters of the
Territory of Hawaii the question of
whether or not the female citizens of
the Territory shall be empowered to
vole at elections held under the laws
of the Territory of Hawaii.
Sec. 3. That all provisions of the
organic act of the Territory of Hawaii
restricting the right to vote to male
citizens which are in conflict with the
provisions hereof are hereby repealed.
Sec. 4. That this act shall take effect
and bo enforced from and after its
approval, and shall be held to apply to
both Territorial and municipal cdec-tions.
