FROM THE OTHER ISLANDS
ON A NAME
In keeping with Its polity in nam
ing Its liners for noteworthy moun
tain peaks in the territory, the Inter-Island
Steam Navigation com
pany has definitely decided to name
their new flagship that Is now on
the ways at the Sun Shipbuilding
company, Chester, Pa., "Haleakala,"
In horor of Maui's famous crater,
says the Valley Isle Chronicle.
Credit for this is largely due to
the efforts of Lorrin K. Smith, who
circulated a petition to the company
that was signed by many prominent
citizens of Maui asking that Ilalea
kala be the name selected.
The Afmi Chamber of Commerce
desiring to show their appreciation
for this recognition has taken de
finite steps to see that the new
liner be provided with an Inscribed
plate or photograph for Its social
hall that will be in keeping with
When the new craft Is placed in

Kahului run and the Kilauea shitted

in the service will be a material
aid to our commerce.

A little daughter of C. Murakami

was later transferred to the Wuiakea
isolation hospital. His condition is
becoming worse and on August 13,

blood poisoning. At thetinie of writ
ing he is suffering considerably and
his recovery is doubtful.

Members of the board of health
last Thursday denied a petition pre
sented by residents of Hoosevelt
(formerly 1'ukoo), Molokal, asking
the removal of Dr. K. S. Goodhue,
as government physician for the
district, and at the same Mine ex
tended to the doctor their approval
of his acts in the performance of
his duties on the island, says the
Some Molokai resldi ills claimed
that Dr. Goodhue overcharged for
his services, and also that l.e de
manded ls from indigent patients.
lOugene Duvauchelle, who circulated
the petition attended tho hearing
with his attorney. He was given
an opportunity to substantiate his
and has made his home in the is- i charges, but he declined to do so on
lands since. He is a classmate of
Judge Itay J. OTirien of the local

ther into the matter. The board
pointed out that Duvauchelle had
been notified a month ago that the
petition would bo hoard yesterday.

L. D. S. Give Excellent
Concert at Kapaa
Last Saturday night at the Ha
waiian hall at Kupaa a delightful
concert was given under the auspices
of the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter Day Saints for the bene'fit
of a community hall at Kapaa. The
concert was In charge of Mrs. Ro
salie Keliinoi, and the main event
was the repitition of the Hawaiian
story of Moikeha, which was given
last December at the Lihue Armory.
The hall was prettily decorated for
the occasion. A large crowd gathered
to hear the singing and to enjoy
tho various stunts. Miss Mahikoa and
Miss Aileen Scharseh proved to be
very coy princesses and in their duet
to Moikeha, "Tho Winds from Over
the Sea," they brought out the rich
quality of their voices and were
certainly deserving of the encore
which their artistic work evoked.
John Kealoha was the smiling Moi
keha and Sam Waiwaiole acted the
part of aged king of Kauai.
The chorus singing, the quartets
and trios were much enjoyed. Miss
Kilauano and Miss Malania and
young Kilauano sang beautiful Ku
hana very effectively and were re
peatedly called back for more. For
encores they responded with some
of the older Hawaiian songs which
were much appreciated by those
The Makaiwa Glee Club composed
of Messrs. Ekc-keht, Kaiu, Kealoha
and Lono rendereda bolabola master
piece "Till to pea I ta matani,"
which was 'something new nnd pro
voked much laughter. They had to
respond to the insistent demand for
some more of "Titii." Elder Olsen
contributed a vocal solo which was
also well received and ho also had
to respond with an encore.
The third part of the program con
sisted of dances a Tahitan dance,
violent, full of action and appealed
to tho audience as a good exercise
for reducing the avoirdupois and a
dance styled the Butterfly dance,
which was the opposite of'tlio other,
full of grace and poise and appealed
to the aesthetic taste of 1 l.e music
loving. They were both well received
and were much enjoyed.
After the program at the Hawaiian
hall there was dancing at the Tera
oka hall where a glee club from 11a
namaulu furnished music for the
occasion. Altogether a very enjoy
able evening was had by those who
came. A handsome sum was realized
and will go far towards the goal
which tho ciders who are on this
mission have had in mind since thky

Lawyers are discussing what they
believe to be the probable appoint
ment in the near future of former
Judge J. A. Mathemman to succeed
Harry Irwin as attorney general for
the territory, with Miss Marguerite
Ashford as his first deputy, to sue-"
feed Joseph Lightfoot, tho incum
bent, says the Advertiser.
Both Mr. Lightfoot and Mr. Irwin
are holdover Democrats, appointed
by former Governor McCarthy, and
it has been the policy of the pres
ent administration to appoint Repub
licans to all vacancies as fast as
Both are also members of the
laud board and as such receive $100
a mouth. Such also is the former
territorial treasurer, Delhert K. Metz
ger, who is still a member of the
board, altl.ough his term as treasur
er ran out some time' ago.
It is his contention that Governor
McCarthy appointed him as an in
dividual and not ex-oft'icio, and that
the appointment runs for lour years.
Whether Mr. Irwin anil Mr. Light
foot will take the same stand is a
subject of speculation.
