Promoters Will Locate A
Factory in Wailukti.
It is rumored that certain
parties are looking for a suitable
sito for a pineapple cannery in
Wailuku. The story is that a cer
tain number of small Japanese
pineapple growers in the Haiku
district are dissatisfied ovet the
price offered by the Haiku Cannery
for their crop and, in order to dis
pose of their crops to advantage,
are making offers to capitalists to
put up a cannery in Wailuku with
a view of sending down the ripe
fruit by railroad to be canned in
tho Wailuku factory.
A site on (he road to Kahului
several hundred feet mauka of the1
Maui Soda and Ice Works was'
looked over and considered by the
promoters to bo the ono most suit
able for the purpose in view, and
it is very likely the factory will be'
erected there, unless a more desir
able site is obtained. The' only
draw back being the hick of water,
but under present conditions with
an iron rivetted injunction against
taking water from the government
water mains, thewater question is
the stumbling block. Another
suggestion wttB to have the factory
erected in Iao valley where th'ere
is plenty of watter to be had with
out tho government water system,
but tho difficulty of having to haul
tho fruit two miles from the Wai
luku railroad station is in the way.
Still anothor proposition was to
put up tho factory" at the Wa'hirialo
spring mauka of the rdad where it
makes tho turn at tho beach to
wards Kahului. Hero the difllcul
ty of getting water would bo obvi
ated, and tho 'factory would be
right on tho railroad line.
The Wahinalo spring is an his
toric spot. After the battle ol Iao
and the waters of Wailuku were
polluted by ditches and streams be
ing clutterod with dead bodies,
Kamehameba's army drew their
drinking water from these once fa
mous springs. Among old Hawa
lians its waters are deemed to have
healing qualities, and in former
times maliy havo mado pilgrimages
from distant places, in order to
bithe in it or to drink of the life

Is Doing Well.
H. P. Baldwin was taken se
riously ill with appendicitis early
this week and in response' to a
wireless sent to Honolulu the In'

The Weather on Maui
For the Past Few Week.
The prolonged drouth on parts of
M'aui has caused tho public to ob
serve weather change? with much
interest. Every time a stray bunch
of clouds settles over the Kula sec
tion of tho Haleakaln mountain
friends of Kulaites keep central on
the jump and the wires hot ringing
up Kula to find out how much rain
is falling there until the hunch of
clouds dissipates itself.
When the south wind began to
blow last Saturday our weather pro
phet was stricken with the popular
Malady but with some method to
his madness took to studying cloud
effects and atmospheric changes, in
stead of calling away by phono the
faithful Kulaite from his long,
Unending vigil by the tap of the
government wafer pipe at Keokea.
Saturday last the South wind
blew'a gale, sending clouds of dust
from the parched fields of, Kula to
the skies till it hung like a pall of
smoke over Haleakala..
Sunday, the wind blew strong.
Towards afternoon a great bank of
black clouds hugged the woods at
Ulupalakua, but no rain fell. The
denuded mountain sides and sum
mits above Ulupalakua and Kula
lay bathed in the splendors of tho
tropic sunshine, beautiful to the
eye but disheartening to suffering
Between Sunday evening and
Monday morning the gale was at its
height- Trees, branches and leaves
blown down and littered the ground
By Monday afternoon the gale
had moderated with tho sky cloudy.
In tho morning and forenoon Kula
dust was streaming to the skies like
smoke. No rain.
Tuesday. Cloudy. Rain in the

Attorney General Cables Ask
ing for Resignation.
Confirmation of the announce
nlent of the resignation of Judge
Noah Kepoikai of the Maui Circuit
Court, which was published ex
clusively in The Star some three
weeks ago, was received by the mail
from Maui this morning. In addi
tion to this -an explanation is given
of the denial made by the judge in
regard to his resignation.
Judge Kepoikai on Tuesday, ac
cording to advices which come from
Maui and which are from him per
sonally, received a cablegram from
Attorney General Bonaparte 011
Tuesday in which he was requested
to forward his resignation at once.
In case that this is not doilo he will
without doubt bo summarily remov
ed from the position which he now
The denial made by Kepoikai
that he had resigned was practically
a quibble. It appears that while he
did not forward his actual resigna
tion to Washington by Governor
Frear he did send a'letter asking
that he be allowed to resign. In
other words, in case the department
found that his acts had been indis
creet and constituted a cause for re
moval, he wished to he given an op
portunity to get out in a graceful
manner and without being actually
expelled and thus being subjected
to a rather severe mode of proce
It may be -stated as practically
certain, as was published in The
Star at the time that Keiniikai's re
signation or removal was announced,
that . Judge Selden B. Kingsbury
will be the new appointee. He has
never made any formal application
for tho position and will not do so
till a vacancy has actually occurred.

The charge which brought Kepoi-
kai to his downfall was one which
involved the borrowing of money
from an estate while it was in the
custody of the court. It was alleged
and proven beyond reasonable doubt
that Judge Kepoikai obtained a loan
from the estate of a dead Japanese
of 81000 giving his personal note,
unendorsed and unsecured, for the
same. Photographic copies of the
note were obtained as additional
proof and the testimony in tho
matter was forwarded to Washing

Judge Kepoikai received the cable

parto by mail, Friday morning,
alleged to be a request for the
judge's resignation, and to which
the judge has replied. When seen
by tho reporter of the Maui News,
the judge was framing his reply and
would not state what his answer
