A scheme has already been set go
ing which will pract'cally revolution
ize things on Uose Itanch.UIupalakua,

view to increasing the amount and

tract, a good part of which is cover

will be reclaimed. Arsenite of Boda
will be used for the lantana and burn

ground by Haugh burners for the de
duction of the paamakani. This work
is now under way.
Frank Sutherland, former herds

parent and upon the death of the
former, the title passed on to his son,
Prince David Kalakaua Kawanana

A Warm Contest
In Tennis Doubles
In the semi-finals of the mixed
double tennis tournament played last
Saturday afternoon on the courts of
the Puunene Athletic Club, Engle
Couch beat Sawyer-Chillingworth, 6-4,
4 0, 6-3, 7-9, 6-4. Engle-Couch had
been picked for winners and they
started in by taking the first set in
good style. The second set went to
Sawyer-Chillingworth, with Engle
Couch taking the third set. Then
started the hard grind for the fourth
set. Although Engle-Couch at sever
al periods of the game had the ad
vantage over their opponents, they
were unable to win the game that
would give the set, which finally went
to Sawyer-Chillingworth, after playing
some of the best tennis that has ever
been seen on any of the local courts.
At this period it was so dark that it
was necessary to turn on the electric
r.ghts. Engle-Couch started the fifth
set by taking four straight games.
The filth game went to Engle-Couch,
wiih the sixth game to the winners.
Sawyer-Chillingwoiih then took the
next three gajnes in succession, mak

How Our Soldiers
Sailed For Camp
Got Away In Sections, But All Land
ed Safely Shorn Of
The Maui battalion of the Second
Infantry, N. G. II., left for the en
campment on Oahu in three sections,
getting away Saturday evening, Sun
day morn'.ng and Sunday night. The
plan had been for the Matsonia to
take all except the Lahaina company,
but near the last of the week the
agents of that steamer notified the
Guard authorities at Honolulu that
the Hawaii detachments of soldiers
would be all she could carry under
her passenger registry. It was ar
ranged to have the Mauna Loa make
a rush trip to Kahului Saturday night
and the Claudine to return Sunday
for the remaining men.
After leaving Kahului Saturday
afternoon, the Claud'ne went around
to Lahaina, picking up the company
there, Captain Wm. Kaluaklni, com
manding. This company had gone
!,nto camp the night before, and was
all ready, with its equipment, to move
on the minute when the steamer ar
rived off port.
The Mauna Loa got away from Ka

COLLAPSE OF SUBMARINE CAMPAIGN
New York Arthur Pallen, British war expert, in a statement
.-.ays that if there be anything unsatisfactory in the military and political
situation in Europe it is more than cvompensated for by the extra
ordinary news of the collapse of the German submarine campaign,
which appears to have broken down altogether. This, to his mind, is
the momentous news since the entry of the United States into the war.
It means that German defeat on 'the sea is final, universal and perma
nent, while land successes are merely local, casual and temporary. Ger
man defeat on the sea means that the American share in the war will

ITALIAN'S CHECKING GERMANS
New York The Italians are checking the enemy everywhere except
