MAUI SQUARELY BEHIND
THE TERRITORIAL FAIR
Local Association Cancels Plans For Anything Here,
In The Interest Of The More General Prospo
siton At Honolulu, The Success Of Which Is
Threatened By War Conditions Other Matters
The Maul County Fair & Racing
Association, at its annual meeting
held yesterday afternoon, decided to
abandon all thought of holding a fair
on this Island In 1913 and to throw all
the energies of the county to the
Territorial fair to be held in Honolulu
When the question came up quite a
number spoke, and the opinion seem
ed to be that while a local fair was to
be desired, conditions generally were
such that if Maul went whole-heartedly
into the Territorial proposition
it would be quite enough to attempt
Harold W. Rice, who is Maui com
missioner for the Territorial fair, re
commended that the Association
name a fair committee, to represent
Maul and assist him in his work. He
put this later in the form of a motion
and it carried by unanimous vote.
The president will appoint the com
The question of the Association
offering pri.es to be awarded in con
nection with the fair was also taken
up, and there was a good deal of
argument on the point of whether
these prizes should be for Maui ex
hibitors only or be thrown open to
' all exhibitors of the Territory. That
there should be prizes was decided
favorably, but the question as to mak
ing them general was left to the fair
committee, ilh the advice that eilhor
way would suit the Association.
It was voted that the county super
visors be requested to assist financial
ly and otherwise in an exhibit for
Maul county at the Territorial fair
The meeting got under way at 2:30,
President Frank Baldwin in the chair.
Enos Vincent, John Watt and F. H.
Locey were elected to membership.
In addition to card notices to mem
