THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1918.
'-'' ....l.l.......-,.. tt
Undoubtedly there has been a vast
amount of criticism of the reorgani
zation of the firm of H. Hackfeld &
Co., effected through the efforts of
Walter Dillingham, F. J. Lowrey and
J. F. C. Hagens, and in all probabil
ity there will be some satisfaction
expressed today at the fact that this
reorganization has fallen through, but
it remains to be seen whether there
can be a better plan evolved for the
Immediate Americanization of the big
corporation so far as the law permits
and the eventual complete American
ization of the firm at the conclusion
of the war. We are inclined to doubt
it. We doubt if the complete control
which A. Mitchell rainier, the alien
property custodian, will soon have
will prove to be better for this Ameri
can community or for the United
States as a whole.
There can be no shadow of question
of the absolute sincerity of Mr. Pal
mer in desiring himself to conduct
the reorganization. But unless he
sees fit to sell the alien-owned stock
which will be in his hands, his con
trol of the property will be as trustee
only for the enemy aliens, who, at
the conclusion of the war, will receive
back the control into their own hands
with the accumulated profits of the
war period. That means, to put it
simply, that doing business with
Hackfeld & Co., will be providing pro
fits to go to Germany after the war.
Thi9 knowledge will deter many from
doing business with that firm and this
loss of business will injure those
stockholders who are sincerely loyal
On the other hand, if the custodian
disposes of the stock, to whom will
he sell It who are better Americans
than the present members of the new
Hackfeld directorate? If he holds
the stock as trustee, the profits on
that stock will go into Liberty Bonds,
which will be eventually the proper
ty of the enemy aliens, together with
the Interest paid by the united
States. If the stock be sold, the
amount realized can likewise go into
Liberty Bonds, and more bonds than
the profits will be able to buy, while
the profits will remain in the country,
available for bends. Red Cross or any
other patriotic object to which under
the law the custodian cannot sub
scribe. There has been naturally, a great
deal in connection with the reorgani
zation of Hackfelds not made known
to the public. The Advertiser has
been kept apprised of the greater
number of the moves, however, and
it was with the knowledge that a
legitimate attempt was being made to
secure by purchase every share of
stock held by enemies in Germany
that this paper backed and endorsed
the reorganization. Much of the
criticism that has been voiced has
sprung from ignorance of the facts,
we believe, although i is likewise
unquestioned that a majority of the
critics voiced their opinions in i
feet good faith.
The Advertiser cannot but feel re
gret that things have developed as
they have. We can only hope that
the new plans soon to be put into
effect will prove as generally satis
factory and as profitable for all Ha
waii as we had reason to believe the
old plans would have been. Adver

who with all haste came to our res
cue with his little "Pony Packard."
He only could accommodate six of us,
and, of course, the rest of us walked
until we finally managed to get a
brake and a rig and in this way the
last of us reached Kamalo at 2:30 p.
m. tired and hungry. But say did we
not do justice to that swell delicious
lunch given to us by the McCorris-tons?
Then came the unexpected. Mr.
George Kaluna called play at 3:30
p. m. We had our sea-legs and man
aged to keep things going our way
for a few innings, but soon after our
left fielder, Manuel Carrcira, was
sprawling over or crawling under the
wire fence. Much to our surprise he i
did well in these fancy stunts. We
are not offering an excuse, but due to
the wonderful coaching of Ed. McCor-
riston we lost this game, the score
being 18 to 8. We are sorry to say
that in this game we used five pitchers.
After a few minutes of leisure we
were on our way to KaunaKaKai
where the second game had to be
played. We had the same two autos,
but the crowd being rather too large
we had to take turns in riding and
walking. Some of us boys and girls
were met by Mr. Dunn and two of
his men who very readily gave their
horses to the girls. At about two
miles from Kaunakakai our friend
Bill Low was walking and was about
to go on his knees so Mr. Dunn got
him a donkey, which was about Mr.
Low's size. Mr. Low was asked to
bless himself when he would reach
the grave yard for, as Mr. Dunn said,
the donkey was superstitious. Mr.
Low got an idea, we don't know how,
and he blindfolded the donkey and
in this way reached Kaunakakai with
out any trouble. We all met at the
dance hall at about 10: 30 that even
ing where a nice luau was awaiting
us. After the luau we danced until
the lights went out due to lack of gas
oline. It was a good thing for we
were tired and sleepy. Sleep we did
for some of us did not feel the mos
quitoes feasting on us.
Next morning, February z.fra. saw
us up nice and fresh and after hav
ing our usual morning exercises went
for our horses which we had hired
the night before for our trip to the
nali to take a Been at Kaiaupapa auu
at the lake way up in the mountains.
There not being enough norses we
had to get a mule for our Mr. Lean
dro. Mr. Kong Sing Loy, who did
not care if the boat went down or
not, forgot his troubles of the day be
fore and was in nis nign eyuno
he certainly made that horse go on
flv. Not so with Leanaro ior we
heard him pass a remark that the
mule was just like me -f ora ne
driving at Haiku and also said that
he believed that a "Ford" and a
mule" were cousins. '1 nere was a
little girl accompanying him on the
way, but he asked her the favor to
go ahead, as he wanted to have a
private talk with his mule. One of
our cirls on this trip performed the
latest stunt in dismounting. It was
done automatically and it was uon

was very pleasant, we sui
vn,,n,i,aiiii at nhnut 3 v. m. had an-
other swell lunch and off to the ball
George Kaluna was there again and
at his command we started the ball
arolling t 4 p. m. This time r.u
corrlstons was not fortunate with his
coaching. To offset his coaching and
to win this game we had to keep the
crowd and the opposing players in
terested in us. We were successful
by having one of our men perform
the Charlie Chaplin stunts also the
Highland jig. We threw the P ill to
all corners of the lot until we thought
we had thrown enough, lain auuui
Kong Sing Loy with his famous hook
slide. Why one of the fishermen said
he wished he had that hook to catch
his fishes. We won this game, ui
score being 12 to 6.
After having our hair maae nne aim
our faces look gay we again went to
another luau at the dance hall. After
having all we wanted to eat we were
on, our toes at the sound oi me uiubn.
We were there on and off the floor
until the time came when we had to
leave for it was already Sunday morn
ing and we had to prepare tor our
trip back. We bid the old folks good
bye at the dance hall, but the young
people came with us to the landing.
We all got on a ranruuu car uiobu
hv a horse and down to the landing
we went merrily talking and slapping
each on the backs. At the landing
we had some more music ano uanc
ing, but not all of us, as Bill Low, Ed.
Thompson, Earl Eaton, Kong Sing
Loy, Chong, Kion Soong and one of
the nurses were looking for a com
fortable place on the sampan for they
well knew the worst was yet to come
"All aboard" shouted the captain or trie
Rfimnan at 3 o'clock Sunday morning
and the shaking of hands came next.
Some ot us parted with sad nearcs
for surely some there were leaving a
sweetheart behind. We were all on
board now singing aloha-oe and then
good-bye till we meet again.
The sampan left its mooring and
off to the open sea. Everything
went well while we were hugging the
shore, but soon the waves came
splashing over the boat which made
some of us look swell, but with all
its tossing with the waves we reach
ed Lahaina at 6:30 Sunday evening,
bade each other good-bye and off
to our respective homes we went.
We wish here to thank the McCor
ristons, Miss C. Dunn, the members of
the Molokai baseball team and the
Molokai people in general for making
our short stay very pleasant. May we
