Quite a number of Hawar.una
fire at Kahului. and they are quite as much entitled to compensa
tion for their losses as are the Chinese and Japanese of Honolulu.
This matter cannot be neglected much longer, for no claims can
be tiled after September L7. Tho filing of these claims is a very
simple matter. Write to the fire claims commission at Honolulu,
staling the classes of property destroyed, and suitable blanks will
be forwarded to be filled out. No attorney will bo needed, for any
Hawaiian of ordinary intelligence can fill out his own blanks.
The only cost will be a fee of twenty-five cents for swearing to the
statement of losses. Every Hawaiian who suffered loss by the
Kahului fre should do this, so that when tho commission holds a
sitting at Kahului, such claims of Hawaiians will be in a shape
$2 Just a word of advice to advertisers in the News. The true
art of sucoossful advertising consists ia letting people know just
exactly what you want to sell. A vaguely worded ad or one which
does not call the attention of the reader to the particular thing or
class of things you wish to sell is not of nearly so much value as
an ad which particulates. To illustrate. John Jones and John
Smith are in tho same line of business. John Jones inserts an ad
which merely states that ho carries a full line of goods.
John Smith advertises a compound duplex pair of suspenders

good grass lands have been rendered utterly worthless by the

plants being injured by the blight, coffee for instance, but there are
only four small coffee plantations on Maui, and they are worked at
a loss, owing to the cheap price which coffee brings. Unless some
more urgent reason for fighting the blight can be given than any
heretofore suggested, the government should keep its hands off
and encourage land owners in their efforts to get rid of lantana.

Sundny School Reunion.
Kaahumanu Church at Wailuku
was packed to its limits last Sunday,
the event being the reunion and com
petitive class drill unci singing of nil
the Sunday Schools adjacent to Wai
luku. The following were ropresent-
eil; Waikupu, Spreckelsville, (Camp
5.)Club. the Japanese Sunday School
f Waiiuku, Kahului, Waichu and
Wailiec Sunday Schools.
By ten o'clock the cliurdi was
filled with an interested audience.
'rior to the commencement of
the regular exercises of tho day,
Jud;ie J. W. Kalua announced that
at a convocation of all the native
pastors of the various churches of
Maui, Rev. S, Nua had been selected
to (ill vhc pastorate of 'Kaahumanu
Church of Wailuku for the next two
years, and that he would bo formally
ordained in the afternoon. Among
the pastors iu attendance at tho re
union were Rev. S. Nua, Wailuku:
Rev. J. Kalino, Paia; Rev. O. Nawa
hine, Waihee; Rev. E. M. Hanuna,
liana; and Rev. S. Kapu of Paia.
The formal exercises of the day
were opened by the Waikapu Sunday
School whose work showed that they
ave not neglected their SuuJay
lessons lately, and under the leader
ship of Mr. Kapule they rendered
some delightful music.
Next came the Spreckelsville Club,
under the leadership of Albert Kalei-
ini. These are Hawaiian boys who
recently came over from the Hono
lulu Iron Works, to assist the roofing
Puunene Mill. Although comparitive
trangers, yet they won the hearts
of the audience by their manly beaiv
ing, their apt answers to scriptura
questione, and the full rich melody of
Rev. Ah Ling, the Chinese minister
at Wailuku followed with a short ad
dress iu Hawaiian, and a couple of
hvmns in the Chinese language
which he sang with pleasing effect.
He was followed by Rev. G. Tana
ka who had a large clas9 of neatly
dressed cute looking Japanese boys
and girls present, none of whom
were more than nine year old. At a
siffnal the little tots took up tho air
of a simple little hymn in tho Japan
ese language and . sang it quite
through without assistance, and fol
lowed this by another hymn sweetly
rendered. Their sinsrinsr was one of
tho events of the day.
Then came the Kahului contingent,
led bv Mr. J. P. Kaonom. Ihis was
a large class, principally composed
of grown up children, and their class
work and singing were commendable.
Next came Wailuku, from which
something specially nice was expect
cd, and these expectations were
more than realized. The lesson work
under the leadership of Miss Nape
and Mr, A. JNaone, ana the music
under the leadership of Capt. Saffery
were finely rendered.
They were followed by the Waiehu
Sunday School under the leadership
of John Kawai. Although not eo
ambitious in the selection ot their
songs as wero some of tho other
schools, yet their work was very
smooth and pleasuut, leaving a de
lightful impression on the minds of
Ihe Waihee Sunday School was
reserved for the last, and the script
ure work under the leadership of Mr
Maule, followed by the singing under
the leadership of Robt. Nawahine
made a worthy finish to tho exer
cises. The bright, cheerful, sweet
faces of the Waihee lads and lasses
and the rich mellow cadence of
their songs left a charming effect on
the minds and hearts of the audience
which will long remain as a pleasant
reminder of the occasion.
At tho conclusion of tho regular
exercises, Rev. , M. Hanuna of
Haua was invited to address the
audienco which he did iu his usual
forceful and eloquent manner.
He complimented the different
schools on the excellence of their
work, paying Maui a high coiupli
rnent in this connoctioii by stating
that in all portions of the Islands,
from Hawaii to Kauai, men and
women traiaed in the Sunday Schools
of Maul aro today to bo found carry
ing on the good work.
Pointing to a handsome buttou
which he wore on the lappel of his
coat, he stated that he had won it by
a steady attendance for three months
at the Hana Sunday School, and
that all others who had done like
wise; wore a similar button, and he
suggested that other Sunday Schools
might wisely Imitate the Hana Sun
day School by ptdcuring aud distri
buting the button to those who won
therrr by regu$r attendance;."
Judge Kalua, closed the , -exercises
iu a few gracefully chosoa words,
and wor.'id up by stating that pre
parations aro now under way for the
,'randest Sunday School Reunion
which has ever betn held on Maui.
It is to be held at Lahaina next
June, and schools from all the Islands
will be in altendauco, not only native
but all schools, without regard to
ace will be present. It will cost at
least $2,000, but funds will, bo forth
coming to meet all expenses, and
ample preparations will be made to
receive and entertain all visitors.
Lahaina has been selected as the
meeting place, because of its easy
access from all ttc other Islands by
At the conclusion of tho exercises
the guests were invited to a luau
prepared in the grounds of the par
sonage adjoining the church, and a
feast of poi, roast pig and beef, and
fish was spread. Several' hundred
people were in attendance, and none
were allowed to go away hungry.
Homes Jon Hawaiian Girls.
A condition exists in and around
Wailuku at tho present time, in
common perhaps with other portions
of the Islands, which calls for imme
diate attention and relief.
By actual count there are between
twelve and fifteen Hawaiian youn
ladies and girls in Wailuku who have
left school with all that our school
system can cive them, and life lies
before them as a peculiarly difficult
problem. In many cases their par
ents aro not able ts support them in
idleness, nor do the girls themselves
wish it. The Settlement Ruildiug
counts for something, but not every
thing. These girls should have
chance to go out and earn an honest
living by work, and many of them
are anxious to dojf the opportunity
presents itself. They are diffident
and have not tho tact and energy of
some of their white sisters.
They are quite willing to do house
work, and it does seem that the
white and Hawaiian ladies of Wai
luku who are able to do so should at
once take steps to give some of these
rirls work. In Wailuku, most fauii
lies have Japanese wahiues to do the
house work and look after the chil
dren, when a Hawaiian girl could do
it just as well. Of course one trouble
is that but few families cau give a
home to their help and for this rea
son Japanese women are largely em
ployed, because they cau go home at
Even this condition could be reme-
died however, for at the Settlement
Building or elsewhere homes could
perhaps be found for those who have
no homo to go to when the day's
work is done. Of course it would be
much better for the girls themselves
however it they could have a homo
with their employers.
The ladies of Wailuku covM not do
better than to call a meeting and
discuss this question fully, and those
of them who can do so should let
their Japanese women go and give
our Hawaiian girls a chance to win a
home and an' honest support for
