The drive for the 4th Liberty Loan
Is on. .
Today and tomorrow arc honor days.
All who subscribe for the new bond3
on these two days will1 have their
names entered on the honor roll of
the campaign. The amount of the
subscription does not matter and will
not be published. The willingness to
help win the war is the thing that
Maui is starting off in a way that
looks like a winner, although up to
the present time Maul's allotment has
not been learned. The total for the
territory, however, is said to be in
the neighborhood of $7,000,000, which
means "that there can be no slacking
if these islands are to hold up their
end of the big campaign.
The Maul committee in charge of
the loan has been doing a lot of hard
work all this week. Its organization
is well thought out and indicates that
teamwork will be the key that will
open the way to success. A big sup
ply of striking posters were received
the first of the week from the Hono

been placarded in splendid shape, and
other parts of the island are rapidly

The campaign for the primary elec

doesn't mean that there is any in

there is not. On the contrary the in

Still the candidntes are out making
their rounds in the old time-honored
way and trying to tell voters why
they should be elected.
The republican candidates are for

Engagement Of Miss
Soper Is Announced
Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Soper, of Wai
hee, announce this week the engage
ment of their daughter, Margaret
Elenor, to Lt. William E. Hoover, U.
S. A., lately stationed at Camp Cor
Lt. Hoover, who was stationed on
Oahu for a number of years as a
member of the 2nd U. S. Infantry,
won his commission at the 2nd offic
ers' training camp, held at Schofield
Barracks last winter,, and was sent to
the mainland in May of this year. It
is understood that he has secured a

very shortly. The date of the wedd
ing will be determined by his arrival.
Miss Soper has been a member of
the office force of the Maui Publish

RECEPTION FOR NEWLY-WEDS
A large number of friends of Mr.
and Mrs. J. H. Kunewa, who were re
cently married in Honolulu, gathered
at the Maui Hotel last Saturday even
ing at a reception in their honor
given by Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Field.
Tho affairs was a most delightful one.
Mr. and Mrs. Kunewa were recipients
of many congratulations.
The board of supervisors, at its
last meeting appointed David Kuamu
as superintendent of tho Lahaina wa
terworks. The pli'co has been vacant
since the removal of the former in
cumbent at the recommendation of
the local grand jury.
Liquor Men Want
License Fees Back
Petition Supervisors To Refund Por
tion Not Used By Reason Of Pro
hibition Going Into Effect flatter
May Go To Court
And now come tho ex-booze purvey
ors and want their money back,
They represent that Ihey bought
and paid for a peifectly good license
to sell booze, on July 1 last, but that
in less than two months Uncle Sam
stepped In and closed their business.
Therefore they would like the county
of Maui to pay back the proportion
of the 6-months license fee which
they were not allowed to realize on.
The matter was brought to the at
tention of the board of supervisors at
its meeting last week by attorney on
behalf of the Maui Hotel and the Pio
neer Hotel. The board tbok no action
but referred ft to the county attorney
and to the members of ho booze com
mission which granted the license.
There is no provision in the terri
torial laws for the refund of license
money, nor is there apparently any
thing to prohibit the supervisors from
doing so if they see fit. It remains
to be seen whether or not they will.
Of course the liquor men when they
took out their licenses knew that
they would have to quit selling on
August 20. And they took their
chance. Also they would bo rather
foolish not to get their money back
from the county if they can. They
would naturally never get it if Ihey
did not a r.k for it, so they have made
their petition. And we shall see what
we shall see.

Land Commissioner Says Such Would

Fleming Would Fatten Cattle On
Island No Sheep Or Goats
The report in the Honolulu papers
of fhe pat few days to effect that a
21-year lease on tho island of Kalio
oUv.e had been made to Eben Low for
a rental of $2u0 per year, is entirely
without foundation in fact, according
to Land Commissioner Rivenburgh,
who war: seen by the Maui News on
board the boat from Honolulu for III
lo, on Wednesday afternoon.
"It is a newspaper reporter's mis
tak"1', declared Mr. Hivcnburgh. "At
the land board meeting on Tuesday",
he continued, "the matter was men
tioned in minutes of a previous meet
ing, as having been brought before
tho bnar.l in form of an offer from
Ixjw. No action has been taken, how
ever, nor could a lease be granted to
Mr. Low or to anyone else before the
properly had been duly advertised
and the lease sold at public action.
This has not been done. In fact it
has not yet been definilely decided
iusf what will be done in the mat
ter." Mr. rtivenburgh stated that D. T.
Fleming had suggested leasing the
land as a cattle proposition, the ani
mals not to be kept continuously on
the land, but only put there a portion
of the year for fattening. Tho island,
he states, will not Gland, pasturing
with any :;ize'l herd, at least, all the

properly handled, will be of value to
the island in spreading the kiawe
forests which are making a very pro

pose. No sheep or goats will be per
