Maui Has Patriotic
Excellent Races Of Untrained Horses
Is Preceded By Patriotic Speeches
And Ceremonies And Followed By
Fine Polo Game
Maui's Fourth of July celebration
yesterday was probably one of the
most patriotic and generally interest
ing of any that have ever pone before.
The main feature or course, was the
annu.il race meet at Kahului under
he auspices of the Maul County Fair
t Kaeinp; Association, and the polo
game which followed in the afternoon.
Rut there were besides this many
private r, Ionic parties all over the is
land. The Kahului celebration was more
than simply a day of racing. It in
uaded a stirring ceremony of flag
rais;ng, in which the whole mass of
spectators took part, saluting the
Flat? as it was hoisted to the strains
of i.h.? Star Spangled Banner, played
by the Puunene band!.
Then followed a patriotic address
by Judge L. L. Burr, that was full of
fire and thrilled all his hearers. It
breathed the spirit of today as wel
as the spirit of the times when the
Declaration of Independence was first
signed, and of the days when our
young nation was wracked to it foun
dations in a struggle for its own pre-

Maui May Have New
New Fifth Regiment Being Organized
To Take Place Of Those In Service
Recruiting Already Started In
Honolulu And Hilo
Col. Will Wayne, adjutant general
of the national guard, has written to
a number of persons on Maui on the
question of organizing here of two
companies of the new guard regiment
which is now being organised. The
regiment is intended to take the place
of the guard regiments now in fed
"It is proposed in the not distant
future," Col. Wayne says, to organize
two companies of the new 5th Regi
ment, national guard of Hawaii, on
the island of Maui. The present de
sire, and I trust there will be no need
to switch, is to recruit a regiment
throughout the territory which will
bo of a much higher plane than any
thing we have before had.
"We are trying to hold very close
to the educational tests of reading
and writing. We are also particular
on the physical end," although our
losses in the two regiments that hare
gone are much lower than those ex
perienced in the mainland guard or
ganizations, I am informed."
Recruiting for the new regiment Is
well under way at the present time
in Honolulu and Hilo. Col. Wayne
states that it is not considered prob
able that the new regiment will be
called into service unless an emerg
ency should arise that might call out
every able-bodied citizen in the terri
tory. If the two proposed Maui companies
are organized it will need seven
officers 2 captains, 2 first lieutenants
2 second lieutenants, and one physi
cian with rank of 1st lieutenant.
MAUI TEACHER MAY ENLIST

upakalua school, left Maui for Hono

the navy. Mrs. Ganfleld left for the
mainland several months ago.

"The first draft man to step ashore
in Honolulu was a young fellow from
Maui, carrying, with pride, a large
American Flag, to which he clung
patriotically until two hours later

of the mobilization camp at the head
of the two contingents.
"As a mark of respect the guard of
'the 25th U. S. Infantry, on duty at the
'gate, was lined up, presented arms
'and the first military honors were
' paid to the boys from plantation fields
and offices, from stores and schools,
from taro patches and rice fields. They
too, some day, may line up in the
same way to honor other civilians en
tering the army for the first time.

The Maui man with the Flag was

JAPANESE C. E.'S HAVE JOLLY
FOURTH OF JULY
PICNIC AT WAIHEE
The youn people of the Wailuku
Japanese Christian Endeavor and
their invited guesls enjoyed a very
jolly Fourth of July at Waihee beach
yesterday. A party of more than 20
gathered at the church at noon and
were conveyed by automobiles to Dr.
Osiners' cottage at the beach.
Games were planned for the first
part of the afternoon but a sight of
the water quite overcame any thought
of games. After several hours of
swimming and water sports, a bounti
ful, war lunch was served. Everyone
found it hard to realize that Food
Conservation laws can work hardship
anywhere, as long as huge, luscious
Haiku pineapples are to he had.
After lunch the usual lazy fun was
enjoyed, ukuleles and war songs oc
cupied nearly an hour. The postpon
ed games then came in for their fair
attention, and everyone was sorry
when the automobiles arrived inter-
lupting a jolly game of "three-deep."
Back to the church the whole party
came, declaring everyone of them that
there could never be a jollier Fourth
than theirs had been.
The monthly meeting of the cham
ber of commerce will be held next

General Belief He Is Formidable
To AH Other Candidates
The announcement of Dr. J. H. Ray
mond that he will be in the race this
year for the delegateship has created
quite a stir in political circles in both
parties. The Advertiser has the fol
lowing to say in connection with the
Maui medico's candidacy:
Dr. J. II. Raymond of Maui in con
firming the announcement that he
will be a candidate for the office of
Cf lefate to congress, says that he will
make the race as an independent
candidate, and not as a Democrat. In
connection with this announcement It
is hi Id that Doctor Raymond is so
well known as a Democrat that he
will be considered such by many and
his support will come very largely
from that party, which, the political
wiseacres think, will further reduce
the vote which Link McCandless
might expect should be decide to run
