Used Trunk As Bank
Robbers Steal $320
Filipinos Watched Till They Found
Where Cash Was Hidden, Then
Tapped The Sack When Owners
Were At Movie Show
Because they I bought their money
was safer in their own hands than tti
a bank, a Filipino named Agaton and
his wife are now out just ?32rt. Three
other Filipinos are in the county jail
and have confessed to the robbery,
but they blew in the cash in a few
days of riotous living in Honolulu, so
Agaton and his wife are poorer In
pocket if richer in experience.
Peter de la Cruz, an ex-convict,
Faust ino Cabuhat, and Estanislao
Pangelinen, after several weeks of re
connoitering, discovered that Agaton,
a hard-working young machinist, was
keeping his savings in a trunk at his
home on Market street. On the night
of August 10, when they knew that
Agaton and his vile were at t?i
theater, they entered the house, an'?
'liiickly made way witli the money, do

not discovered for a week when an ad

to Honolulu, but suspicion had fas

The recently organized Maui Gar

combination of a number of Wailuku
businesses, has begun work on the
reconstruction of a portion of the

Provision is to be made for adequ

property, as well as for a display
room where a line of automobile ac

The alterations will probably re

Whether or not there will be any
liquor licenses at all granted by the
Maui license board, has not yet been
determined. I'p to the present there
have been no application filed for the
privilege of handling such liquors as
the new prohibition law permits being
u:ed for medical, scientific and church
purposes, and because the total vol
ume of such sales on Maui ptoniise
to be small it is not probable that any
merchant wants it very badly. The
cost of license if a year for Wai
luku district, and $2o for other places
in the county.
The license board, at a meeting held
a few days ago, appointed Sheriff
Clem Croweli as inspector for the
board at a- salary of $10 per month.
The chief duty of the inspector is to
sign permit a for the purchase of liq
uor for any purpose, or for its im
portation. All physician's prescrip
tions for liquor in Wailuku district
must also be countersigned by him.
In the other districts the government
physicians are to be deputy inspect
ors with authority to o.k. prescrip
tions, except of their own writing.

advisability of having a licensed deal

thought best to have such, will then

for any purpose, properly vised, must

also a transportation order to com
