Maui Choral Club
In Fourth Success
"Chimes Of Normandy", AtPaia Com
munity House, A Big week
Saturday evening. March 16th., a
goodly-nixed audience of central Maul
loplo much enjoyed a most success
ful presentation of Robert Tlan
quette's "Chimes of Normandy" a
roniic opera In three acts, by the
Choral Club at Tala Community
It was tho fourth opera given by
this musical association and proved a
worthy successor to "Queen Esther,"
"Tho Mikado" and 'Tina fore."
II. V. llaldwin as Gaspnrd, the
miser, was easily the star of the play,
doing most admirable work through
out, but especially so In the second
act where the old the old miser Is
discovered, gloating over his gold.
Miss Oilet Hoblnson, as Serpolette,
the good-for-nothing, made a pleasing
Muse appearance and sang her lines
In a charming manner. Miss Mario
Anderson, as Oermaine, the lost
marchioness, also did excellently.
Mr. D. C. Lindsay, as Marquis of
Cornevllle, and Mr. David Rattray as
Jean Grcnlchoux. a fisherman, did
their UBUal creditable work. Mr. II.
D. Sloggett was, as Is customary, a
leading favorite with the audience In
the comedy part of "The Hailll". and

tractive appearance with changes of

Several Reasons Of Superintendent
Cause Him To Decide To
At a meeting of the Alexander
House Settlement trustees held on
Wednesday, the resignation of L. II.
Mathews from the position of head
worker was received and accepted
with expressions of much regret.
It is the intention of Mr. and Mrs.
Mathews to leave from Honolulu by
the Manoa near the end of April for
the tatter's old home in Connecticut.
The reasons for the resignation of
Mr. Mathews are two. In the first
place, he has sufTered a great deal
with his eyes, Is otherwise "run
down" as the result of work-strain
and feels that he should have a
change. Then, the father of Mrs.
Mathews Is very 111 and she feels
that she should be near him. Mr.
Mathews came here under an arrange
ment to stay three years. This term
would expire In August.
The Settlement trustees decided to
name Charles A. Puck, who Is now as
sistant to succeed Mr. Mathews in
general charge of the work.

FILES REPORT ON
Court Decision Caused Suspense For
Several Months, But Much
Work Was Done
DETAILED STATEMENT OF BUSINESS
To His Excellency,
. Lucius E. Pinkham,
Governor of Hawaii,
We have the honor to submit tho
following report of the work of the
Industrial Accident Board for the
County of Maul, covering the year
ending February 1, 1918.
The work of tho Board was serious
ly interfered with during the latter
part of the period owing to the deci
sion of tho First Circuit Court which
held the Workman's Compensation
Act unconstitutional. Until this de
cision was overruled by the Supreme
Court on December 11, on advice of
tho Attorney General's Department,
no action was taken on any cases of
accident, and the activity of the
Hoard consisted only in holding reg
ular meetings and receiving and filing
such reports and claims for compen
sation as were received.
The insurance policies of most of
the employers within our jurisdiction
expired on July 1, 1917, and a large
part of these failed to renew them or
to make other provision for compen
sating their employees pending a de
cision by the higher court on the val
idity of tho law. The Board is nna-

Medical Board Exam
Busy Week Put In Major Cooper
Says Nice Things Of Local
The military medical examining
board arrived in Walluku by the Ma-
una Kea last Saturday night, register
ing at the Maui Hotel, and have been
here since. They plan to leave here
tomorrow night for the Island of Ha
waii to continue their labors there.
The board is composed of Major
Charles n. Cooper (until lately head
of the medical department in the Na
tional Guard of Hawaii, who was re
cently called into active service) and
the following from the regular army:
M"ajor A. V. Hennessey, Captain J. P.
Cleary, Captain O. J. Markley and
Hospital Sergeants A. O. Miles, Van-
derpool and Phillips (the latter three
ilso being medical specialists).
The board came here to examine
what are termed "deferred" men on
the list for the selective draft and in
tho Nationnl Guard. Tho local exam
ining board accepted some, rejected
others and "deferred" quite a large
number on account of questions as to
their physical fitness, and it is the lat
ter lot that tho general board has
been examining. The work began
Monday morning In the Wailuku town
hall and hn3 been progressing stend
ily, and as rapidly as possible, since.
About 110 men a day have been
Speaking of the work which had
previously been done here, Major
Cooper said: "I cannot refrain from
complimenting Sheriff Crowell, Dr.
Osmers and their assistants on the
thoroughness of their work in connec
tion with the selective draft. Its
thoroughness shows Itself all the way
through, and has greatly simplified
the work of our board. Moreover, we
have had the most valuable assistance
from both Sheriff Crowell and Dr. Os
mers, the foimer placing his clerical
force at our service and the latter
making a special trip to liana and do
ing certain work there which hns
saved the board a great deal of In
convenience. 1 regard the selective
draft work on Maui as A-l. and Sheriff
Crowell, Dr. Osmers and their associ
ates are to be complimented".

The Chamber of Commerce
of Maui, composed of the busi
ness men in every line, yes
terday afternoon discussed the
liquor question seriously and
earnestly, and the opinion was
that an effort should be made
to bring this island in under
the same rule which will make
Oahu "dry". The following
resolution was introduced, sup
ported by all of the speakers
and unanimously endorsed:
WHEREAS, in order to ef
fectively aid our Government
every effort should be made to
speed up production of neces
sary materials for the conduct
of the war, including food pro
WHERAS, the Territory of
Hawaii produces a large quanti
ty of such food products, name
ly sugar anjd canned pine
WHEREAS, it is a known
fact that the use of intoxicat
ing liquors Is one of the potent
agencies which works against
efficiency In all industries; and,
WHEREAS, the recent order
of President Wilson, prohibit
ing the sale of liquor on the Is
land of Oahu may deter the
passage of the bill, providing
for prohibition for the Territory
of Hawaii, now under consider
ation by the Congress of the
United States; and,
WHEREAS, although we be
lieve the said order of the Presi
dent safeguards those in active
military service of the Federal
Government, we believe that re
sults will be far better if said
bill becomes law as prohibition
for the entire Territory of Ha
waii as it will assure far bet
ter industrial efficiency as well
as the saving of foodstuffs now
used in the manufacture of al
coholic beverages consumed In
this Territory, and
WHEREAS, we further feel
that great unfairness will result
to us if prohibition is applied
to the island of Oahu only, as
such a half-way measure will
be followed by a large increase
in the liquor traffic and Its ac
companying evils on this island.
Therefore, be it
RESOLVED, that the Maul
Chamber of Commerce, being a
representative body of the
County of Maui, Territory of
Hawaii, urges the Delegate to
Congress from said Territory
of Hawaii to use every effort to
further the enactment of a law,
as a war measure, providing for
prohibition for this Territory
as a WHOLE; and he It further
RESOLVED, that a copy of
this preamble and resolution be
sent to our Delegate to Con
gress, J. Kuhio Kalanianaole.

BIG SPORT CARD
IS PLANNED FOR
THE JUNE FAIR
Spectacular Cavalry And Infantry
Features To Be Staged By The
Army And Others y
ATHLETES OF ISLANDS TO ENTER
Honolulu, March 20 Prospects are
bright for a great sport card at the
territorial fair, with spectacular caval
ry and infantry features staged by
the army as special events. The race
track at Kapiolanl Park will be roll
ed and put into first-class condition
for the speed events, and the polo
field inside the course offers excellent
facilities for many of the field events
and the army maneuvers. The grand
stand has a seating capacity of 1800,
while bleachers can be placed to ac
commodate 2000 more.
Athletes and strong men from all
parts of the territory will be urged
to participate in the big fair events.
The commission expects to have
something doing on the track or field
every hour of the morning, afternoon
and evening, for the entire six days
of the celebration.
For runners the progam will
provide sprints, distance events,
marathons, relays, etc.
A tug-of-war tournament for the
championship of the Islands, with a
purse hung up as added inducement,
undoubtedly will be arranged, to at
tract the strong men from the Big Is
land, Maui and Kauai. In this test
the regimental teams of the army
will participate, and It probably will
be staged as one of the regular even
ing attractions, with one or two con-

Maui's New Judge
Neat Little Ceremony, In Which
Speeches Of Welcome Are
Made And Responded To
Hon. Leslie L. Burr, the newly ap
pointed judge of this circuit, arrived
in Wailuku on Tuesday and registered
at the Maui Hotel, which will be his
home Indefinitely. Members of the
local bar had planned to meet him in
a body and give him a legal "glad
hand" to Maui, but owing to the un
certainties of his time of arrival, and
place of arrival, the plan in its com
pleteness could not be carried out.
At 2 o'clock that afternoon the new
judge formally assumed charge of the
court. In the court room at the time
were Attoneys Case, Bevins, r ckett,
Vincent, Sheriff Crowell, other offici
als and a considerable audience.
When the judge took his seat he
requested Clerk Linton to read the
cabled order of his appointment and
the oath of office which he had tak
en in Honolulu.
County Attorney Bevins, in a few
words, expressed the welcome of
Maul to the new judge, speaking on
behalf of the bar, officials and citi
Mr. Eugene Murphy endorsed the
remarks of the previous speaker,
added a word of welcome and then
transferred the subject to Mr. Dan
Case, whom he referred to as the
"dean" of the local bar.
Mr. Caso spoke briefly, but most
cordially gieeted the new head of the
court and assured him of the pleasure
it gave tho bar, court and county of
ficials and the public generally to
welcome him to Maul.
The court, in reply, spoke briefly,
saying that he appreciated very much
the attitude of the people or Maui to
wnrd him. as he had. in such brief
time, been able to observe It; and
particularly appreciated the expres
sions which he had Just listened to
from members of the bar. He trust
ed, and believed, that results would
bear out the hopes of everyone.
That brought the proceedings,
which were very short and simple,
to a close, the court announcing ad
journment for the day.
Compliments Mr. Burr
When the circuit court term open
ed Wednesday Attorney Wm. T. Raw
lins, of Honolulu, took the floor and
in a very eloquent manner paid a high
tribute to the abilities, character and
reputation of Judge Burr, who was
just beginning his official duties. The
remarks of Mr. Rawlins were receiv
ed with interest and were regarded
as timely, for tho reason that Jude
Burr had come into the community
as almost a stranger. Mr. Rawlins
came up on two cases in which he is
interested and will return again next
WORLD'S GREATEST FIGHT
HAS PROBABLY STARTED
Germans Begin The Battle
ed Troops On The British Over A Front Of Fifty
Miles Terrific Artillery Lines Penetrated In
Places British Quite Confident Americans
London Simultaneously with the intense bombardment on a wide
stretch of the western front, the Kaiser telegraphed the Rheinish pro
visional council that: "We are at the decisive moment, one of the great
e..t moments in German history". This leads to the belief that the
(ierman drive is coming.
There has been a naval battle between Anglo-French light ships
and German destroyers off Dunkirk. The Germans were defeated,

was slightly damaged.
The British have advanced in Palestine, occupying three more
BIG FIGHT PROBABLY STARTS

sector, evidently heralding their great offensive. They are advancing
under cover ol a smoke barrage, tactics which were not unexpected.

THE BIG GERMAN ATTACK
London By employing massed troops, supported by a great wcicht
of artillery, the Germans appear
tront lines at certain points between the Scarp river and endekil
river, in the opinion of Reuter's correspondents. The German attack
on the British is on a larger scale than any during the war at any part
of the western front. This report
luive not yet developed. It is difficult to define the situation". The
enemy's apparent purpose is to launch attack on two fronts, which re
quires a salient in the hope of cutting it off. The enemy is employing
all calibre guns and duels between heavy batteries are rocking the
country-side. The Germans are employing gas shells frequently. There
is hard fighting continuously from a point north of Lagnicourt to the
southward of Gauche Wood.
Bonar Law, making a statement in the House of Commons, says:
"Our outpost troops were withdrawn from one portion of the front
which was lightly held. This attack is nothing more than was expected,
was in accordance with our calculations and no surprise. I am sure that
!hc House and the country need not feel unnecessarily alarmed. Our
Versailles council knew the attack was coming, and the country may
have no cause for anxiety as to the outcome".
British monitors bombarded the submarine base at Ostcnd yester
day, while naval planes attacked Heligoland.
TRYING TO BREAK BRITISH
Washington American overseas authorities are convinced that the
fcreat battle is a genuine effort of the Germans to win a decisive victory
over the British. They declare military circumstances are against
German success. It is thought that possible internal pressure in Ger
many forced the military to try a forlorn hoe.
PREPARED FOR CASUALTIES
London Long lines of ambulances are standing at Ixmdon rail
way stations to receive expected casualties from the great battle front.
The British people are calm. Bonar Law's words are reassuring.
General Haig describes the German offensive as comprising an
Intense bombardment on a front fifty miles long, both front and rear
positions being shelled. Vast', specially trained infantry elements, fol
b.wiug, breaking through outposts and penetrating some battle iosi
tions. The enemy losses have been heavy and no where have they at
tained their objectives. Violent fighting continues along the whole of
the new line.
