Totals 2676 $366,650
Maui's Quota 450,150
Balance to Raise .
The result from the 4th Liberty
Loan drive on Maul at the end of the
eecond week are considered very en
couraging, though about 20 percent of
the allotment of $450,000 Is still to
be subscribed and but one more week
remains to do it in.
The above table represents the
figures up to 10 o'clock today, as
furnished by Chairman Wl O. Aiken,
and are approximately complete. Late
figures have not been received from
a number of districts.
Tank Named For Maui?
The war department has announc
ed that the county of Hawaii having
the largest over-subscribtion above
their assigned quota is to have the
honor of naming one of the big battle
tanks on the west front. From pre
Eent indications Maul stands as good
a chance or better than any of the
other islands. She is farther ahead
towards he" quota than any of the
other counties. Last week Kauai
was considerably ahead ot Maul, but
tince then we have forged to the front
by about $160,000, while the Garden
Island has made little progress ac
cording to wirelesr. reports. Hawaii's
figures are also moving up but slowly.
Omitted From Honor List
The following persons who bought
bonds on the first two days of the
campaign failed to get their names on
the published honor list through some
slip-up on the part of the committee:
C. E. S. Burns, Wailuku Sugar Co.
E. B. Carley, Maul Telephone Co.
Jennie Kalino, " " "
E. Benjeman, " ' "
C. Benjeman, "
Miss C. Cockett, " . "
County Employees Make Good
Out of 28 road laborers in Wailuku
district, 22 have already subscribed
for bonds. This did not happen in
any of the previous campaigns and is
taken by the committee as a mighty
good sign of how the people are learn
ing patriotism and to appreciate
the securities of the government. As
one of the members of the committee
remarked "A lot of people have
clipped coupons for the first time in
their lives and they like it!"
The Week We Must All Work
It. is eoneeeded that we must all gel
down to hard work from now on if
Maui is to hold up her reputation.
Next week will see the end of the
drive in th islands, and the commit
tee Is bending every effort to get peo
ple who have not subscribed to do so
at once, and to get others who should,
to subscribe more.
Draft Board Finds
The work of physically examining
the young men who registered cn Ju
ly 31, has been going on all this week
at the Wailuku armory. It will prob
ably be finished this afternoon or to
morrow. From present indications
there will be less than 75 Class 1-A
men out of the total 291 registered.
Of the original number but 99 were
placed in Class A and the physical
examination is reducing this number
materially. Exemption claimed by
Aliens, and now under development on
the part of many, is resulting in
throwing out many otherwise eligible.
Tomorrow Will Decide
On Parties' Candidates
Tomorrow is Primary Election Day.
There has been but small interest
manifested in the campaign, except by
the candidates. The democrats, hav
ing no contest among themsplves on
Maui, except that between Kaymond
nnd MeCandless tor delegate, have
taken things easily. The republican
candidates for the legislature have
been winding up their spoeklng tour
this week, and will conclude with a
rally on Market Street, viilul'U to
night. It will probably be the biggest
meeting of the campaign.

The materials will be taken to the
old Kahului armory, which is to be
used as a warehouse, and there segre
gated and prepared for sale.
Red Cross Shop Soon
A Red Cross Shop is to be started,
probably in Wailuku, at which all the
salable second-hand articles will be
taken, while the junk that must be
shipped to the mainland for sale will
be packed at Kahului for shipment.
The new project is already well un
der way. H. K. Duncan, manager of
the Merchandise Department, of the
Kahului Railroad, is to be general
manager of the new department. The

vestigation, but that she had been put

tendent of the station and one or two
other attendants had been discharged,
there is an apparent disposition to
drop the matter.
Mrs. Macfarlane charges that out
siders have been permitted to enter
the compound and mingle with the
patients; that merchant delivery
wagons are permitted to deliver .goods
to patients and to receive money
direct from them; that hogs fed on
refuse from the patients' table have
been Bold outside the station. She
claims that she has many other even
greater abuses to present when a real
investigation is ordered.
Mrs. Macfarlane says that she will
take the matter up in Washington If

health board and the abuses correct
