Makaweli and neighborhood are
strong for B. D. Baldwin for super
visor from this s:de, and although
theuames of Mr. T. Brandt and Mr.
G. F. Rankin are mentioned with
favor, sentiment seems to be crys
tallizing in favor of Mr. Baldwin.
It is i enerally conceded that Mr.
Baldwin would make a first-class
supervisor, and as he is supported

DANCING AND TENNIS
Dancing seems to have taken the
people of this district by storm.
New dances, the one-step and
hesitation waltz have carried many
"off their feet", and dancing
classes under the verv able tuition
of M-ss Low are just now quite
the thing. Not content with the
classes, many are meeting at pri
vate bouses for rehearsals, and it
will doubtless not be long before
we have a fine crop of dancers at
this end of the island.
The W.iimea Tenuis Club has
recently come into existence. The
comt at the old Fassolh home has
been put into shape, and tenuis
players are looking forward to a
season of good playing.
THE EST RAY ORDINANCE
Makaweli people are rather glad
that it will Soon be time to show
the supervisors whether or not
they approve the sidetracking of
that estrav ordinance, which many
had v-i-1 d Kr b.'ird to secure. In

gislauire to help us a little in this
matter. Tht-u, with the power to
act behind bini, the sheriff can see
that a little civil'zed protection is
afforded on our highways. ,
