Maui's W.S.S. Drive
Now Has 18 Members In Limit flub
Last Saturday's Parade Was
Big Success All Parts Of County
Make Encouraging Reports
As a result of the four days War
Savings Stamp drive last week, Maui
added to lier quota, as nearly as can
lie estimated at present, $32,500.
Tl.U is much better than first re
ports indicated, and is probably fully
as high a ratio if not higher, than any
of the other islands. Also Maui now
has 18 members in the "Limit Club".
The parade last Saturday afternoon
brought a large number of persons to
the exercises at the court house, a
large proportion of whom bought
stamps. The parade started from Ka
hului promptly at 3 o'clock and made
an Imposing spectacle. There were
134 cars in line, and they extended
more than half way from Kahulul to
A number of stirring addresses
were made from the court house steps
In both English and Japanese. The
speakers were Rev. K. E. Weasant,
Dr. Sugamura, W. F. Crockett and .
Inouve. Chairman It. A. Wadsworth
presided and also made some telling
remarks. , .
The work of selling stamps during
the week in Wailuku and vicinity was
in the hands of a committee of ladies
directed by Chas. A. Puck. This com
mittee accounted for a total of $7,047.

Hana Feud Apparently " Patched Up

Fight In Courts Probably Pau
Anjo Also Reappointed
II. E. Palakiko, was on Tuesday re
appointed district magistrate of the
Hana district, and Joseph G. Anjo,
reappointed district magistrate for
Makawao, by Governor McCarthy.
Both appointments are subject to con
firmation by the territorial senate.
Palakiko was under hot fire during
his past term on charges of being
mixed up in a gambling game in one
instance, and of assault and battery
in another, but the charges were not
sustained. It was announced at the
time of the trial of the gambling
charge, in which a number of Hana
people were mixed up, that the case
would be carried to the supreme
court, and that other counts against
the accused would be pressed. Also
it was reported that the opponents to
Palakiko in Hana would have an
array of facts to lay before the Gov
ernor that would make virtually Im
possible his reappointment. It is un
derstood, however, that the hatchet
has been buried by the warring fac
tions in Hana, and that no opposition
was made to the reappointment for

from the Kauai chamber of commerce
to effect that Kauai does not believe

The matter will be up for consider

the question of relative weight of the
different territorial organizations will
probably be considered and possibly
some decision arrived at.

Artist E. W. Christmas
Dies Of Heart Attack
News of the death of E. W. Christ
mas, R. B. A., which occurred sudden
ly in the Queen's Hospital, Honolulu,
last Sunday night, came' as a shock to
the many Maui friends of the kindly
artist who has spent much of the past
several years on this island. The
death is attributed to heart disease.
Mr. Christmas was an Englishman
and a world traveler and painter. He
came to the Islands about 3 years
;igo and became so enarmoured with
the scenery here that he had prolong
ed his stay from month to month, the
while painting steadily. He had ex
pected to leave very shortly, howevt-.,
for a tour of the South Seas, and
went to Honolulu from Maui a few
weeks ago with that idea, but had
been delayed on account of lack of
While he had not been in the best
of health, he did not consider himself
ill, and the attack on Sunday was sud

day afternoon from William's under
Mr. Christmas was highly regarded
as an artist, and his paintings had
been exhibited in the British Aca
demy. His "Christ of the Andes", ex
hibited at the Panama-Pacific Exposi
tion, was perhaps his best known
work. Many of his paintings are now
owned in Island homes. The artist
was of a friendly and kindly nature,
and he had made friends where ever
he went, who wll learn of his demise
with deep regret.

Mr. Townsley has been anxiously
trying to get into active service for
months past, and the report that the
reserve has been summoned came t
Mm as a pleasant surprise. His many
friends on Maui will see him leave

ceived by Chas. A. Puc k, of the Alex
ander House Settlement, from L. R.
Mathews, former head worker of the
institution, states that he had attend
ed the V. M. C. A. conference at
Springfield, Mass., and expects to go

Joe Medeiros, manager of the Wai-

deal of big talking lately about their
prowess on the diamond.
Any team wishing to accept this
challenge should notify the MAUI

that the game may be properly ad
vertised to insure a good crowd.
