1 have received the circular from
the committee for the Distribution of
American Aid to the Orphans of War
and I beg you to be my interpreter to
the committee, and thank them for
me for their kind help.
I am 11 years old and I still go
to school. I am very happy to tell
you that because I work hard, my
principal who is kind enough to take
an interest in me, advises my mother
to let me continue my studies to high
school, and so I am making every
effort to give satisfaction. My father
was employed in a store before the
war. When war was declared, he
went with the 2!Hh Infantry and has
been reported missing since the 14th
of September 1914, after the engage
ment at Courcy-Brimont.
1 promise to write you more than
four times a year, it will be a pleas
ure to me, and express to you in a
small way my gratitude.
Ple.tse accept, sir, the assurance of
my sincere thanks.
Dear little comrades of America,
1 hasten to write to you in order
to thank you for the gilts that you
have the kindness to send to us to
help us, and which gave us such great
You ask us what we are doing; we

lo before the war? He was a day
laborer, then he was a private and
was killed at Tarjette, Pas de Calais,
the 29th of May 1915 by the burst
ing of a shell. You know dear little
friends that one is not happy with
out a father, it hurts me very much.
We are very glad for what you sent
us. We hope you are well, we arc
111 in good health.
Dear little comrades we will leave
on for today, kissing you tenderly,
;is does our Mother who thanks you
with all her heart.
The little orphans who thank you,

lard At Work On
Since last Saturday Sheriff Crowell
and several assistants have been busy
preparing and sending out the blank
questionaires to the registrants for
the selective draft. The average
completed per. day has been 185, so
that by tomorrow morning 1295 will
have reached the persons for whom
they are intended, or will be on the
way to them. The total number to
be sent out now is 37U0, so that, at
the present rate, two weeks more of
similar work is ahead.
None have yet been sent to mem
bers of the National Guard, but it is
assumed, that, under the latest rul

battalion will have to fill out the

Maui Investment Has
Its Annual Banquet
The members of the Maui Invest
ment Association, a local hui, together
with their wives, enjoyed their an
nual banquet at the Grand Hotel last
Sunday. Seventeen people sat at the
table which was most tastelully de
corated by Host Louis Distelli, mana
ger of the hotel. J. Garcia, who is
secretary and treasurer of the hui
advises that the next banquet will be
held at the Volcano House, as it is
the intention of the members to make
a visit en masse, accompanied by
their ladies, to the Volcano. Officers
elected for the ensuing year were J.
S. Medeiros, president; C. P. Dento,
vice-president; J. Garcia, secretary
and treasurer; Joe M. Ambrose, audi
tor. Trustees: John M. Medeiros,
M. G. Paschoal and J. Garcia.
Of Liberty Bonds
At a meeting of the directors of the
Baldwin National Bank, held on Tues
day, it. was decided that the bank
would receive Liberty Bonds for safe
keeping frep of charge, and, more
over, would attend to the interest cou
pons on same.
The motive is purely patriotic
there being nothing in it for the bank
payment for safe deposit boxes not
being contemplated. A short time
ago attention was called to the dang
er of Liberty Bonds being lost, or not
properly looked after, if Kept in pri
vate hands, and that suggestion ha
brought up the idea.

Permits To Canners
Limit Pack Of Deans
The United States Food Adminis
tration is sending a letter to canners
of beans, giving them a permit to
can 25 per. cent of thier pack of white
and colored beans, as indicated in
the estimates of their requirements
up to March, 1918, which were recent
ly submitted to the Food Administra
tion. The Tinplate Supply
The canning of beans was prohibit
ed pending a survey of the available
supply of tin plate. This survey has
disclosed that there will soon be re
leased sufficient tin plate to relieve
the present situation, Imt the Food
Administration deems it wise to limit
the use of it until there is assurance
of an adequate supply of the mater
ials necessary for its manufacture.
The present permit will enable the
canners to rednre their nppimiiilntnrt
stocks and relieve the financial strain.
The canners arc warned, however,
that it should not be taken as a pre
cedent and they are advised to con-
uter tlie luture wjtn caution.

Ihe permits have been mailed, but

"Anna" And "Annie"
And Christmas Cake
A mixup In names, Involving a
Christmas present, was at the bottom
of a case which was nired in Wailuku
district court on Monday and, finally
It appears that there were two
Hawaiian women with the same last
tvi mo, and there was only n slight
difference in their first names, one of
them being known as "Anna" and the
other as "Annie."
On December 27th. a fine Christ
mas cake was sent to the one which
may be designated as "Anna," but
found its way into the hands of
"Annie". "Anna," by the way, was
in Honolulu that day and did not get
back until the 29th. When she did
arrive, however, she heard about the
cake, started out to locate it and
found that It had gone to "Annie."
Now, It appears that "Anna" and
"Annie" had had trouble before and
were bad friends. The latter admit
ted that she had received the cake
and, believing it was Intended for her,
ate it. So "Anna" had "Annie"
In court, "Annie" was very frank
about the matter, and the case seem
ed so plainly one of a mistake only
that the judge threw it out.
Steamer Being Altered

last week she had aboard sixty car
penters who were rapidly transform

to use the Manoa for transporting
