For License Pienewal
License Board Reconsiders Resoltion
To Grant Licenses - Will Re Good
For But Two Months Six Dealers
In the advertising columns of the
Maui News today appear the board
of license commissioners' notices of
the filing of 8 applications for liquor
licenses for the fiscal year beginning
July 1 These applications, unless
they are withdrawn in the meantime,
will he acted upon by the commis
sioners at 9 o'clock a. m., of Friday,
Interest in the matter arises from
the fact that, in case the liquor
boards grants the licenses applied for,
the dealers will have less than two
months in which to sell undrr them,
because on August 23 the federal pro
hibition law for the Islands will be
come effective. Licenses can not pay
In pro rata for the time they are per
mitted to sell, but must pay cash half
the cost of a yearly license, which
will amount to from $"on to $"l)0 ac

Many Sub-Committees Not Yet Re
portedAverage Pledge Is For
$16 School Children Doing Effec
tive Work In Saving Money To Buy
The Maul War Savings Stamps
committee has received pledge cards
from 3-119 persons, and a considerable
number of district committees have
not yet reported. Chairman Wads
worth is urging all workers in the
stamp dive to hurry their returns in
ode that Maui may take he proper
place in the big campaign.
The 3419 pledges received promise
a total of $54,621. IS to be invested in
War and Thrift stamps by Maui peo
ple between now and the end of the
year. This is an average of about
fW each. When full returns are in
it is expected that upwards of ?7!,-

Schools Doing Well
The schools of the county are doing
especially well, and the- . iii.h.".(Jasm
among the children is increasing'.
The desire to earn money to buy
stamps has developed all sorts of
enterprises among the young hustlers,
some of which are quite original.
The Maui News' Thrift Stamp con
test has appealed to a large miniber
in all parts of the island, and those
who have adopted this method are
making money in one of the easiest
ways. Now that the object ol the
War Savings Stamp idea has become
generally known, and the fact ap
preciated that the collection of these
stamps is not simply a patriotic duty,
but the best kind of an investment as

Last Sunday's Game
Orientals Defeat Stars By Single Run
'Paia Gives Puunene Bad Trim
ming AH Teams Playing In Poor
Orientals, 10; Stars, 9.
Paia, 15; Puunene, 5.
The biggest thing about the games
Sunday last was the scores. As
seems to be the habit this Beason,
the Juniors ended with a close score,
the Orientals saving themselves by
the narrow margin of one run. They
made a strong opening, and kept in
the lead throughout, while the Stars
played a steady consistent game,
scoring a little in every round, Both
teams were even in the number of
errors, but the Stars were unfortunate
in their selection of the time to do
the dirty deed. They made them
when they were most costly, and the
result was that with only 8 hits the
Orientals put more men over the
plate than did the Stars with 12 hits.
As for the big game, the only thing
against It is the score. Of course
Paia is not responsible for making
so many runs, nor should they be
blamed for giving Puunene a chance
to put a few across. The opening
four innings promised a close and
exciting finish, with the Puunene
boys working smoothly and Wicke
holding Pala's sluggers close. And It
really wasn't so bad until the seventh
after that, the deluge.
Puunene hasn't yet recovered from
the loss of her wizard pitcher of the

The Haiku community fair, held at

The board of territorial school com

meeting of the year in Honolulu last
Monday, finished its work in a day
and a half.
The commissioners approved all
the appointments of teachers, accord
ing to the voluminous lists presented
by Superintendent Kinney, for the
school year of 1918-1919, beginning on
September 10, next. Mr. Kinney was
authorized by the commissioners to
employ, without further authority,
such mainland teachers as will be re
quired to fill expected vacancies to
be caused by tue calling of Hawaii's
quota of the war draft, for there are
quite a numb-T of teachers who are
subject to the local draft.
Will Fill Draft Vacancies
To fill the expected vacancies Mr.
Kinney is forced to seek new teach
ers entirely in the mainland, for the
local supply of certificated teachers

M.A.Co. Now Making
Alcohol And Ether
Ether Manufacture Promises To Be
1 Important, Enterpiise Alcohol
Plant Running Successfully Will
Supply Gasoline Substitute In Nor
The Maui Agricultural Company's
-commercial aconoi plant is now in
successful operation and will soon be
turning out between 50(1 and lt'ioo gal
lons of the new gasoline substitute
per day from the waste molasses of
ilhe mill. The alcijiol is stored in a
banded warehouse where it is held
by a gager of the I'. S. internal reve
nue ollice until it has been denatur
ized by the addition of certain mater
1 ials when it is released for sale.
I With the high prices now paid for
molasses on th mainland, J. P. Fos
ter, null superintendent of the M. A.
Co., who has invented and patented
the new process, states that it will
probably not be possible to'sell 1ho
product in competition with gasoline
for power purposes, but that should
the withdrawal of shipping make im
possible the selling of molasses on the
coast, or should the supply of gas
oline be cut off, the alcohol may be
come of inestimable value. In nor
mal times it should compete with gas
oline in cost.
Now Making Ether
IJut the big thing that Mr. Foster
now has practicaly perfected is the
production of ether from the alcohol.
This product is now in big demand
not only In the arts but as an anesthe
tic in the war zone. The ether is
produced by distilling the alcohol
with sulphuric acid and purifying the
resultant product. It is hoped that
; most of the alcohol made can be used
tor this purpose.
Honolulu Call Teaman
Want To Play Maui
The "Braves", of the Pacific Am
ateur League, of Honolulu, would
ilike to play one of the Maui ball teams
'on either June 11 or the Fourth of
Ju'y. J. D. Held, secretary of the
, club, has written the Maui News to
this effect. Th? Braves are the pen
nant winners of 191t and 1917 and are
j willing to meet any kind of a com
bination that can be organized on
The proposition will probably be
'taken up I". a few days by the base
ball committee of the Maul Fair &
Racing Assocition, which at the same
time will consider two other similar
proposals from Honolulu teams The
'Ifllculty if meeting the rath-T heavy
expenses, It is stated, will probably
result in the offers all being declined.
The plantations of the island have
been rushing the harvesting season
as much as possible in anticipation
of the draft call, which will reduce
the labor supply materially. The
scarcity of vessels to carry away the
! sugar, is however, threatening to
'cause some of the mills to quit grind
ting for lack of warehouse room.

PRESIDENT APPEALS FOR THRIFT
(Official) President has appealed to Americans for economic sacri
fices, permitting full realizations productive capacity for winning war.
Said in part "This is a war of nations and not of armies. All of our
1 00, (XX), 000 people must be economically and industrially adjusted to
war conditions. The problem is not primarily financial, but rather
one of increased production of war essentials, in saving materials, and
in labor necessary for the army and navy. Thoughtless expenditure
for non-essentials uses labor and product and overburdens transorta
tion. I therefore urge our eople everywhere to practice thrift, in
crease production, conserve food, fuel, and materials, to devote labor
only to necessary tasks; buying only the things essential to health and
