The following letter from Senator
H. A. Baldwin should be of interest
to every voter in the territory. It
points out a number of Inexcusable
mis-statements of fact made by L. L.
McCandless during his recent cam
paign for the delegateship on Maul,
and indicates how all the opposition
to homesteading that has been made
were made by democrats and not re
publicans. The "prominent dem
ocrats" mentioned by Senator Bald
win as having tried to get the twenty-five
applicant clause eliminated
from the homestead section of the
Organic Act, were as most persons
will remember, headed by the then
governor, L. E. Pinkham, who con
sistently fought homesteading in the
islands throughout his term of office.
The letter follows:
"Editor, Maul News,
"It has come to my attention that
the Democratic candidate for the del
egateship from Hawaii to Congress,
Mr. L. L. McCandless, has recently in
his campaign on Maui grossly mis
represented Hon. J. K. Kalanianaole,
his opponent on the Republican side,
as to the latter's attitude towards the
homesteading of our public lands, and
I desire, through your columns, to
appraise the public of the injustice
that has been done.
"Mr. McCandless. in his speeches
and in a printed leaflet that he hands
out. claims to be the "lather" of the
clause in our land law as contained
in the Organic Act which makes it
mandatory on the part of the Com
missioner of Public Lands to open up

Maui Man Gives Hat
To RedCross Shop
Might Have Left More Of His Clothes
But Ladies Would Stand Not Such
Generosity New Enterprise Finds
Most Encouraging Support
The Maui Red Cross Shop will open
for business on Saturday, November
9 a week from tomorrow. A wonder
ful spirit of co-operation makes it
certain that the undertaking will be
a big success.
The ladies of the Red Cross Shop
are indebted to Doctors Ohata and
Kikkawa, the latter formerly of Lahai
na, for their ready response to the
appeal to the Japanese people for aid
in renovating garments, which was
published In the Maui Record of last
week. These public-spirited physici
ans have agreed to pay for all wash
ing of garments that have come Into
the shop in need of cleaning.
Merchandise is coining in now in
good shape, and the heads of the shop
are greatly encouraged, and feel that
they will have a worth-while opening.
All articles are priced so low as to
make wonderful bargains.
One gentleman, whom everybody
knows, came Into the shop a few
mornings ago, and asked what was
needed. On being told that anything
was acceptable, he handed over his
haf, and said they could have that for
a starter. This Is the right spirit,
and although no one is expected to
take the clothes "off his back," yet
the original statement holds, that any.
thing is acceptable.
Chas. Savage has made for the Red
Cross Shop an airtight fumigating box.
Where things have long been stored
away, this will prove very valuable,
and the Shop is grateful to Mr. Sav
age for his contribution.

Johnny Carroll, erstwhile success
ful and celebrated Jockey, but now liv
ing in our midst as manager of local
theaters, Is doing his bit in giving to

ing. One articles is a pair of riding
breeches given him by Danny Maher,
the world famous Jockey who rode
for the King of England, winning
many derbys. If someone wants a
pair of riding breeches with a mighty
