Maui Sends Last Of
Her Draft Quota
Local Draftees Make Good Showing
No Delinquents And Low Per
centage Of Rejections May Be
Other Call Later
Maul's last delegation for the draft
left for Honolulu on Wednesday
night's Claudine. There were 73 In
the party of which 60 were the last
of the Maul contingent, the others
being registrants of the Oahu board.
Maul's quota of the last draft was
522. To date 558 men have been
sent down, the additional ones being
alternates to fill vacancies caused by
rejections for one cause or other. The
local board believes that it will not
be necessary to send any more, since
up to the present time only 21 from
this county have been rejected for
physical or other causes.
If there Is a surplus over the 522
asked for, after the examinations
have been completed, it is expected
that these will be sent back. It has
rot been necessary to send any "I
class men (those with wives or
mothers but no children.)
Whether or not the Islands will be
called upon to give any more men In
to service through the draft cannot
at present be told. If the war con
tinues It is believed quite possible
that the national guard troops now at
Schofleld may be sent to France, and
another draft made to fill their places
as garrison troops on Oahu.
Not A Man Missing
Sheriff Crowell, chairman, and the
other members of the local board,
are much gratified over the fact that
Maul has accounted for every man
on the registration list. That this
was possible testifies to the efficiency
of the board, and in any event rather
remarkable when it is remembered
that the draft included men from Mo
lokal, Hana, and other Isolated dis
tricts. M ,
Boards on Oahu, Hawaii and Kauai
have all had more or less trouble with
desertions or with obstreperous draf
tees, but Maul has had none of this

While making a close turn around
the corner from Main street into
High street, on Tuesday morning,
an automobile driven by H. M. Wells,
of Haiku, was met head on by a Ford
truck of the Wailuku Sugar Company,
driven by Joe Souza Lival, with force
sufficient to send both machines to
he shop for extensive repairs.
. Wells was on the right Bide of the
street and had the right of way, the
Ford being clearly out of its legiti
mate course when the collision oc
curred. Lival was arrested and in the dis-
trict court this morning he pleaded
guilty to being on the wrong side of
the road, and was fined flO.

ed chairman of the board, and Dr.
Williams Osmers and E. It. Cevins,
the other members. Sheriff Clem.
Crowell, who will not step out as

ready taken steps for having the work
handled by volunteer assistants in
different parts of the county as was
done in the first Instance. On the
plantations this will be largely handl
ed by the plantation office forces.
The present registration is for the
purpose of securing a list of the men
eligible for military duty who have
become so eligible since the last re
gistration, either through coming of
age, arriving in the territory, or re
covering from a previous disability.
Chairman Crowell estimates that
there will be some 400 new registrants

OPINION RESERVED IN
Judge Burr yesterday reserved his
decision after hearing the case of
Manuel S. Santos vs. Sam Snifi'en for
damages growing out of the sale of
a horse by Sniffen as pound master
at Makawao. The horse had not
been redeemed from the pound and
had been sold, but the plaintiff claims
that the sale had not been legally ad
vertised. The case was brought into the 2nd
circuit court on appeal from the dis
trict court of Makawao where Judg

This is a question on which
According to a suit filed in
the Wailuku district court to
day, Tarn Yau, of Makawao, on
July 9, 1917, accepted a
promissiory note from Antone
do Rego for $175, in return for
a valuable consideration, which
contained the following condi
"Should prohibition come
within one year from date
hereof, then the note becomes
null and void, otherwise to re
main in full force and effect."
The note is past due, but
Tarn Yau claims he Is unable
to collect it because do Rego
claims that prohibition is al
ready here within the mean
ing of the clause In the note
and refuses to pay. He has
therefore brought suit to collect

Superintendent of Public Works L.
H. Bigelow, and Wm. D'Esmond,
engineer of the department, made
the round trip on the Claudine from
Honolulu this week to look into the
matter of landings at Hana and La

probably approve plans for the Hana
wharf to be located on the east side
of the harbor, close under Kauikl
Head, and almost opposite from where
the old landing stands. With the
175,000 available for this wharf, it is
planned to build a structure 250 feet
long and 42 feet wide, with an ap
proach of 25 by 93 feet.
The engineers spent some time at
Lahaina on Wednesday afternoon

ing passengers and freight at that
point. Mr. Bigelow made Inquiries
from a number of persons but did not
express himself as to how the Laha
ina landing may be improved or made
