Jury Decides Against
Correa In Land Suit
In the matter of the petition of
Frank G. Correa for registered land
title, which was appealed to a jury
from a ruling of the land court by
Sarah Keawe, David Kapiioho and
Apo, also called Apo Liilii, the jury
'on Wednesday found in favor of the
contestants. The case was on trial
all the first part of the week.
Correa attempted to get a regist
ered title through the land court some
2 years ago for his Kula ranch. The
title to some 30 acres of pasture land
was contested by the above contes

to Correa by the land court and the
appeal to the jury followed with the
result 'that the decision was reversed.

To $25.75 Per
Ton For Year
Cabled advlcos from thn
coast received by the Haiku
Fruit & Packing Company this
week, announce that the base
price of canned pineapple has
been fixed for the coming year.
It figures out a price to the
growers of pineapples of $25.75
per ton on No. 1 fruit.
The price for the past year
has been $22.05
The new prices go into effect
May 1. With a much heavier
tonnage this year than last in
the Haiku district, the increas
ed price means a very material
gain to pineapple growers.
It is believed that a large
part of this year's pack from
the Islands, if not all of it will
be taken by the army and navy
departments, so that the gen
eral market is likely to be de

"Maui must do some hustling now,"
declared Mr. Lufkin when he got this
message. "This is the first time we
have known what Maui's quota is, and
we are a good deal short of it now.
"I don t know what present sub
scriptions amount to, but we will
know tonight when the members of
the committee report from various
parts of the county. At a guess I'd
say it was not over $100,000."
"It's no use to have an honor flag
unless wo can use it. Therefore it
is up to Maui to get into the harness
and round up our allotment."
The campaign will end on the 26th
though it may be permitted forward
subscriptions after that date by cable.

High school county supervisors it
was voted that the Maul Cadets, in

officially with the High School.
The officers of the company are as
follows: Capt. E. J. Walker, 1st. Lieut.
S. D. Walker, 2nd. Lieut. J. E. Walker,
1st. Sergt. E. U. Hair, 2nd. Sergt. Ee-
ward Baldwin, 3rd. Sergt. Ed. Walsh,
4th. Sergt. David Talker.
