Out And Forfeits Chance For Pen
nantPoor Crowd Sunday
The Tuunene ball team, weakened
by the loss of most of its best players
through the draft, has dropped out of
the race. It did not put in an appear
ance last Sunday when scheduled to
meet the Wailuku team, and thus
forfeited the game. This leaves Wai
luku and Paia tied for the champion
ship, and next Sunday's game -will
settle the question.
The junior game last Sunday was
the first game of the junior champion
ship series, and was won by the Or
ientals from the Cubs by a score of
4 to 1. If the Orientals can repeat
the performance next Sunday they
will have won the honor of junior
Because of two championship games
being scheduled for the same day,
there is considerable interest among
the fans, and there should be a big
attendance on Sunday.
The attendance last Sunday was as
disappointing as usual, though the

Cubs was a good one and well worth

Government To Need
All Lumber Supply
Present Stock On Maui May Be Hard
To Replace News From Coast Is
Disquieting To Builders Good
Maui people who are contemplating
building In the near future are likely
to bp disappointed unless they are
prompt in getting their supply of
lumber needed. This is gathered
from statements made by the Merch
andise Department of the Kahulul
Railroad bearing upon the lumber
According to mail advices from the
coast under date of July 10, the lum
ber situation is growing more tense
daily, on account of governmental
regulation. In fact it is stated that
the government is considering com
mandeering the entire lumbpr supply
of the Pacific Coast for an indefinite
period in order that government
works may be sure of adequate sup
plies to draw from.
If such a step is taken it will make
t almost impossible to secure lum
ber for commercial purposes, particul
arly of clear and select grades. The
arrival of several cargoes of lumber
recently has brought a good surplus
o Maui, which is being sold on basis
of former contracts, and said to be
considerable lower than in Honolulu
or other parts of the territory. But
when the present stock is depleted
the railroad people refuse to predict
when it. can be replaced.

next meeting urging tlyjtolding of a
Maui county fair next year and the

Sale Will Clear First Mortgage
Unsecured Claims To Get Any
Residue No Prospective Buyer
The Grand Hotel, of Wailuku is to
be sold at a commissioner's sale on
Saturday, August in, at the front door
of the Wailuku court house. The sale
will be made under a decree of the
2nd circuit court made over a yea
ago to satisfy a first mortgage of some
$20,000 held by C. D. Lufkin, trustee.
The sale was held up owing to the
petition of unsecured creditors to
have the Grand Hotel Co., Ltd., de
clared a bankrupt. The decision of
Judge Poindexter, of the U. S. district
court last week declaring the company
a bankrupt has now made it possible
to proceed with the settling up of the
Judge roindexter's decision does
not affect the validity of the first
mortgage on the property, which is
held by the First National Bank of
Wailuku, H. Streubeck, and others.
The second mortgage for $10,000, held
by a number of the stockholders, is

court invalid as a secured claim, and
must take its chances with other tin

Fined For Red Cross
The Red Cross was helped out to
the extent of $100 in good, hard cash,
last week through the visit of Food
Commissioner Child to Maul. The
contributors were 10 Japanese fisher
men of Lahtina.
In looking into the fish business at
Lahaina. Mr. Child learned that none
of the Japanese fishermen has paid
any attention to a notice sent thr-m by
the food commission, asking for de
tails concerning their business. None
of them was able to give any good
reason for this neglect. They all had
simply ignored the matter.
To help their memories for the fu
ture, Mr. Child thereupon called upon
each one to contribute $10 to the Red
Cross, and all did so with quite good
grace. He does not expect to have
nny further absent-mindedness on the
Dart of the Lahaina fishermen to wor
DREDGING WORK STARTS 4
AT iauiii ill ij a Dti rfa
The big drege of the Hawaiian
Dredging. Company was brought over
to Kahulul last Saturday by a govern
ment vessel, and is now engaged in
cleaning out the harbor entrance to
a 700-foot width. For this work the
federal government recently made
available $20,000 and turned down
through some error In the Honolulu
engineer's office, a recommendation
for an appropriation to widen the
harbor to 900 feet.
The big dredge also will dredge out
the part of the harbor adjacent the
Claudine wharf under contract with
the territory, at the company's bid of

been playing about the pond, and in
some manner fell in. Although the
water was only about 4 feet deep,
he was unable to struggle out alone.
His frightened companions ran back
to town to notify the parents, .who
arrived on the scene too late to save
the little life.
Much interest centers this week In
the marriage of Miss Virginia Leilani
Silva to Mr. Thomas R. Foster Rohln
son, two popular young people of
Paia, which took place last Saturday
evening in Wailuku. The ceremony
was performed by the Rev. Falh

a very q-uiet affair being witnessed by
only a few of the near relatives aim

ry ellicient district nurse of Paia and
Hamakuapoko for the past several
years, and it will be welcome news
that she will not discontinue her
work following her marriage. Mr.

Maui's Class 1 men still remaining
