' The meeting was the first held by

ent. The annual reports of the treasurer
and secretary were read, accepted
R. A. Wadswoth, C. D. Lufkin and
A. F. Costa, the special committee on
new postofflce building at Wailuku,
reported that, after investigaton, they
had found it impossible to get anyone
to erect and equip a building suitable
for the purpose for the rental offered
by the government, therefore the mat
ter had to be dropped.
Harry A. Baldwin reported for the
committee on entertainment of Con
gressmen, explaining the reasons why
the party could not visit Maui, the
facts concerning which have already
been published in the papers.
For the Haleakala Rest house com
mittee, W. O. Aiken reported that
there is now a credit of $500 to the
fund. A man had been kept at the
place three months in the past year

Banks And Others Take Bonds Suf
ficient To Finish Pro
ject At Olinda
SIX MONTHS BUDGET APPROVED
The Board of Supervisors held their
final January meeting Monday even
ing, beginning at 5:30 o'clock, all
members except Messrs. Drummond
and Uahinui being present.
One of the most important matters
taken up was that of disposing of the
bonds for the completion of Olinda
reservoir, in connection with which
the following letter from C. D. Luf
kin, vice president and manager of
the Bank of Maul, Ltd., was read:
If I am correctly informed, the
completion of the Olinda Reservoir
by the application of a cement lining,
is dependent upon your honorable
board being able to find a purchaser
for the Territorial Improvement bonds
thereby obtainng funds with which
to carry out the work. I am further
informed that these funds have been
made available with the exception of
$10,000.00. Our Board of directors
look upon this project as of prime
Importance to many residents of Kula,
and the Board has this day authorized
me to purchase the $10,000.00 worth
of bonds above mentioned.
"If it ia true that the balance of
the funds are in sight and that the
Bale of the $10,000.00 4 bonds to
the Bank of Maui, Ltd., will enable
your honorable board to proceed with
the work, this bank stands ready to
purchase the bonds, and awaits your

John L. Fleming, president of James
F. Morgan Co., Ltd., Honolulu, paid
a visit to his old home on Maui this
week,, returning to the city Friday
night. He came over in . connection
with the consolidation of the Maui
and Honolulu telephone companies.
After Two Terms Of Excel
Speeders New Directors
stated that the sale of $50,000 of
bonds was made necessary, and that
all but $5,000 had been disposed of,
He thought that the Chamber should
get back of the proposition and take
steps to raise the required balance,
Mr. H. A. Baldwin moved, seconded
by Mr. Wm. Walsh, that the chair np
point a committee with authority to
endeavor to raise $5,000. H. A. Bald
win, C. D. Lufkin and D. C. Lindsay
Mr. Lindsay observed that a good
deal had been said about forming an
auto club, with a view to a more
stringent enforcement of the regula
tions relating to lighting, speed, etc,
A good many felt that rather than
have an independent organization
would be better to have a committee,
with power to act in such matters for
the Chamber in dealing with the po
lice regarding infractions of the auto
rules. It was voted unanimously
that there be a committee of one
and that R. A. Wadsworth be the com
mittee. The proposition is that
members (or others, possibly, as well)
have complaints, they will file them
with Mr. Wadsworth, and whatever
he does will be the action of the
Chamber as a body. The opinion was
expressed that there was too much
laxity in the police office having auto
matters in charge.
A vote of thanks was tendered to
R. A. Wadsworth for his efficient ser
vices in the past two years as presid
ent of the Chamber.
Rev. Mr. Dodge called attention to
the good work being done by Superin
tendent J. D. McVeigh, at the Molo-
kai settlement, and his personal ef-
tort and sacrifice in providing a new
social hall there. A vote of thanks
was tendered to Mr. McVeigh.
The secretary brought up the ques
tion of absentee members, and it was
