Over the Top $ 81,000
With her quota advanced from $!0,
150 to $495,000, Maui nevertheless
was the first county in the territory
to go over the top in the big 4th
Liberty Loan drive which ends to
morrow. The limit was reached on Tuesday.
Since that time the amount has been
steadily climbing until at 1 o'clock
this afternoon Chairman Worth O.
Aiken announced that the fine total of
$576,000 had been recorded, with still
a little more to come in.
This is $81,000 over Maui's prescrib
Large Number Of Subscribers
Altogether 3500 persons and firms
contributed in raising Maui's quota
of the 4th Liberty Loan. This is be
tween a third and a half of Oahu's
subscribers, according to the state
ment a few days ago, and is far ahead
of any other county in the Islands.
In this connection the Wniluku Su
gar Company has probably set up a
record for all of the territory, with an
over 70 percent subscription of its em
ployees. Some of its camps have hung
up 100 percent honor emblem. This
is true of the Hayashi camp, south of
Waikapu, where 34 laborers, the full
complement of the camp, bought
bonds. One man held out for several
days, but his fellow workers finally
brought moral suasion to bear so
heavily that he came across and made
a perfect score.
Quits Kahului Railroad End Of Month
To Take E. S. Smith's Place
To Be Succeeded By Jamieson
Smith To Take Coast Trip
E. S. Smith, head bookkeeper of the
Haiku Fruit & Packing Co., who rec
ently resigned his position and who,
with his wife will leave next week
for an extended visit on the. Coast, is
to bo succeeded the first of the month
by A. C. Rattray, at present cashier
of the Kahului Railroad Company.
Mr. Rattray will be succeeded by J.
C. Jamieson, 1st assistant bookkeeper
in the Railroad offices at present.
Mr. Smith, it is understood, expects
to return to the Islands in a few
months to accept a position with one
of the large sugar agencies in Hono
lulu. He has held his present posi
tion for several years.
Mr. Rattray, who started with the
Kahului Railroad some 10 years ago
as clerk, in the freight department,
has worked his way up to his pres
ent position by faithful work and
ability, and his going will be missed
in railroad circles. His wide circle
of friends will wish him success in
his new work.
Mr. Jamieson was formerly a book
keeper on one of the Brewer & Co.,
plantations on Hawaii, from which
position he resigned to go into mili
tary service. He was turned down in
this ambition, however, through physi
cal disqualification, and came to the
Kahului Railroad some 3 months ago.

ferent localities to assist the board in
its work, and making other prepara
tions for handling the big job.

Senate Keola, Nawahine And Ka-
onohi Defeated For House Prim
aries On Maui Caused Little Interest
The primary election last Saturday

ent for nomination on the rcpunlican
ticket, received 810 votes. In the
democratic fight for the nomination,
Dr. Raymond got 533 votes to Mc

opposition won the Republican nomi
nation with 873 votes for him, while
Hen Lyons decisively defeated E.
Murphy on the democratic ticket by a
vote of 612 to 144.

democratic ticket on Maui, an even
full slate having been put up for all
other offices with the result that the
following nominees for representa
tives were named: J. Burns, 299; J.
K. Hihio, 290; M. K. Kekowai, 315; M.
C. Picanco, 303; T. K. Wahihako, 277.

sentatives the following bIx were no
minated: John Brown, Jr., 956; L. B.
Kaumeheiwa, 967; Levi Joseph, 1030;
M. G. Paschoal, 1016; A. F. Tavares,
1011; Ed Waiaholo, 1049.

In connection with the new salvage
department, organized lat week by

furniture, or other household articles
as may be donated which are suitable
for retail, and which do not come un
der the head of "junk."
As reported last week, H. K. Duncan
of Kahului, has taken the manage
ment of the general salvage work for
Maui, while the ladies of the Red
Cross will handle the Shop. At a
meeting of the women, held last Mon

committee was selected:
Will. J. Cooper, manager; Mrs.
Charles Cowan, shop superintendent;
Mrs. V. A. Vetlesen and Mrs. P. H.
