32nd Annual Race
Committee Named To Carry Out Maui's
Time-Honored Fourth Of July Cele
brationPatriotic Tiogram Pre
pared Fancy Fed Hones Barred
There will bo no break in the rec
ord of more than ?.0 years of Fourth
of Julv races on Maui. This was fin
ally decided at a meeting of the Maui
County Fair & Raring Association
last Tuesday afternoon, at which a
committee consisting of F. U. Camer
on, Annus McPhee and V. A. Clark
was appointed and given full authori
ty to arrange for the celebration. This
will be the 32nd annual race meeting
on this island.
Hut the races this year will be in
full keeping with the spirit of the
time. There will be no outside horses
entered, and no horse that has been
conditioned on other than island grown
feeds, or the ordinary feed mixtures
used throughout the islands for work
horses, will be admitted. It was the
impression of the directors of the as
sociation that the races that can be
put on under these conditions will be
no less interesting, even if slower,
than the more or less professional
races held heretofore.
A Patriotic Day Planned
Resides the racing the committee
has in mind a number of features of
patriotic nature which promise to be
interesting and impressive. It has
been suggested that before the rac
ing events begin a flag raising cere
mony be performed, the spectators

the strains of the Star Spangled Ban

Whether or not the Maui County
Fair & Itacing Association will hold
another children's garden contest has
not yet been decided. At a meeting
held last Tuesday by the diiectors of
the association it was decided to leave
tl.e matter open. There will be no
contests during the vacation months,
but it may be decided to start another
one in the fall.
The report of Chas. A. Pw k, of the
Alexander House Settlement, on the
trip of the prize winners to the fair
in Honolulu was most interesting, and
it was the consensus of opi.iion that

Lane Called Home
Unable To See Maui
Much disappointment was felt on
Maul over the change of plans which
prevented Secretary of the Interior
Lane and his party from making their
expected visit to Maui. While on Ha
waii, the Secetary received an urgent
summons from Washington, and he
immediately hurried back to Honolu

and will probably sail for the coast
within a day or two.
While on the Iiig Island Secretary
lane spent most of his time studying
the homesteading problem. He is
expected to make an announcement
of his conclusions at the inauguration
of C. J. McCarthy tomorrow morning.

Capt. W. K. Scholtz Dies
After Brief Illness
The many friends of Capt. William
K. Scholtz, of Puunene were shocked
on Monday by the wireless news from
Honolulu of his death which had oc
curred in the Queen's Hospital at 9

and 300 en'i'st.a hut. of the Second
Infantry, including Companv G which
the deceased had commanded. Lieut.

in charge of the guard of honor which
stood watch over the hpdy of the late
commander of that company.

stand a watch over the body of Cap
tain Scholtz on Monday and Tuesday
nights' all wearing their full regalia,
giving an appearance of a death watch
by Hawaiians of ancient days over
