Filipino "Bad Man"
Gets Year In Prison
"The police arrested a Filipino
named Antonio Paglinun FrWay night
on suspicion of his being the party
who stole a watch from a man In
Camp 1, Puunene. Sure enough, the
watch was found in his possession.
Certain circumstances connected
with the affair caused the police to
suspect that their prisoner was also
the person who burglarized the pre
mises of one Yamikuma Hirata, on
October 31, also stealing a watch and
some other belongings there. When
taxed with the latter burglary the
man confessed his guilt.
On the person of the Filipino at the
time of his arrest was an ugly dag
ger, and upon searching his living
room the police found two "loaded"
clubs. The Filipino explained that
he kept the weapons for use In fights
over gambling games.
Paglinun was arraigned in Judge
McKay's court Monday morning and
entered pleas of guilty to two charges.
For burglary he was sentenced to im
prisoment for one year, and for carry
ing a dangerous weapon he was giv
en three months, the latter sentence
to take effect upon the expiration of
Sheriff Crowell believes that the
Filipino has been a "bad man" and
that he has committed many offenses
around Wailuku, Kahului and Puunene,
for which he had never been suspect
ed. There Is a feeling of relief tn
police circles that he has been put
away for a year or more.

Drowned In Sea
Body Found Floating In The Surf
Investigation Fails To
In the sea, one dead
Sheriff Clement Crowell has been
literally scouring the island since
Saturday morning for some clue to
the identity of a Filip'no, the dead
body of whom was found floating in
the sea about a mile and a half from
Kahuki',, below the beach houses, the
finder being one Ageno, an Okinawa.
When the Japanese discovered the
corpse in the water, he returned to
shore and told some natives about it.
The latter telephoned to Sheriff Cro
well, who sent Officer Frank Silva
and other policemen over there to
investigate. The latter pulled the
body out of the breakers and took it
to the Puunene morgue, where an
autopsy wa3 conducted by Dr. Sawyer.
Death had evidently occurred two or
I three days before, but as no other
pause than drowning could be found
the uoay was Dunea snoruy
e man had nothing on his per
son that could throw any light on his
identity. The Sheriff made an inves
tigation at the various plantations,
and among the FMipinos in the camps,
but could not find that anyone was
missing. He then surmised that the
man, who may have been a stranger
here, possibly fell from some incom
ing steamer. It was figured from the
schedules that it could only be the
Claudine, but all the passengers by
that steamer at that fine were ac

Visits Maui Growers
J. F. Child, executive head of the
food commission, was a visitor to
Maui on Tuesday, coming over in the
Claudine. While here he was shown
around by Representative J. J. Walsh
Mr. Child brought the information
that Honolulu merchants, after a cau
cus on the question, had agreed to
pay the same price for Maui beans,
f. o. b. Kahului ,as they now pay for
beans from California; but that the
beans must be properly graded and
fumigated before shipment.
"Grading and fumigating the
beans," said Mr. Child, is the one
point. If that work is attended to it
will be no trouble at all to dispose of
the entire output in Honolulu at high
est market prices. I have found out
that the Kahului Store is equipped
for doing fumigating and will handle
it for a small toll.
"I would recommend that the Maul
bean growers get together and have
their crop routed through a central
agency here. It is too difficult and
unsatisfactory for Honolulu mer
chants to have to correspond and
deal with individual growers. Let
the entire business be handled
through one responsible head and
there will be satisfaction all around."
Maui Shriners On
W. H. Field, F. P. Rosecrans, George
Freeland, W. T. Robinson, E. R Bev
inB, C. D. Lufkin, and H. Streubeck

participated in the parade at 1 o'clock
in the afternoon, took in the banquet

Soldiers Of Maui
Returned Last Night
The National Guardsmen of Wai
luku, Kahului, Puunene and Paia re
turned home in the Kilauea this
morning, reaching Kahului about 1:30
o'clock where they took trucks and
autos for their respective armories
and homes. They left Honolulu late
yesterday and were a tired lot when
they arrived here.
A good deal of critclsm is made of
the commissary arrangement during
the entire camping period. The day
the men got into Honolulu they were
hurried off to camp and did not get
breakfast until 3 o'clock in the after
noon. It was realized that someone
had blundered, but there was little
complaining. Throughout the camp
period, however, the food was scant,
uncertain and of a poor quality.
But the Maul men express
themselves as feeling that a great
deal has come from the instruction
Drought On Maui
Broken At Last
The light showers which continued
in frequency and volume last week
reached a Bort of "climax" Monday
afternoon when there was an old
time down-pour all over the lower
levels of Maul, lasting about two
hours. The entire country was light

many months a torrent of water came
down through Iao stream. The
streets of Wailuku, Kahului and oth
er towns were qutte thoroughly wash
ed out, while the cane-fields received
a much-needed share. In the mean
while, heavy rains fell upon the moun
tains, supplying the irrigation ditches.
Since Monday there have been
several good showers, reaching practi
cally every section of the island. Tak
en altogether, the precipitation dur
