What is Best for Maui
is Best for the News
Maui Seeks to be Racing
Encouraged by the support given
the 'nice rouw nt Kahului during
the past years the Maui Raring As
sociation has derided to hid for the
leading horses of the islands at the
next meet on July fourth.
A meeting of the Association was
held Monday evening nt the Maui
Hotel which was well attended.
The report of the Secretary which
was as follows was read and adopted.
Wailuku, Maui, July 7th, lflOf).
To the odirers and members,
MAUI RACING ASSOCIATION?
It is my pleasure to suhmit to you
herewith my report of receipts and
expenditures for the season just end
ed, and I have no douht it will be'
gratifying to you to know that,
while the balance of cash on hand
is small, yet we havr the satisfaction
of knowing that every bill against
the Association has been paid in
full, even Taxes which have stood
against us for the past seven years.
The Association has never been
on tho footing it is today, and I
sincerely trust that each member
will interest himself sufliciently to
stimulate good clean sport, and con
stitute himself a committee of one
to secure good members for the As
sociation, thus encouraging good
horse racing, as well as other lines
of sport which the Association may
care to enter.
It is needless for me to mention
the fact that Ililo has received a set
back in horse racing, and this is our
opportunity to grasp the chance to
promote it all-the more on Maui.
This however, cannot be done un
less members interest themselves in
furthering the interests of Maui, and
keep talking of the success which the
Maui Racing Association is.
Now that the Association is on a
very good standing, let me suggest
that the organization be kept in tact
on a business basis, and to this end
would respectfully suggest that the
Association re-elect Mr. 1). L. Meyer
to the secretaryship of this Associa
tion. He is the right man in the
right place, and no one appreciates
. more than the writer, the valuable
service he has rendered in the past.
Before turning over the books to
him however, I would request that
you allow me to spend a few dollars
in some new stationery and books.
Heretofore, the Association has
never been financially able to buy
even a book, but the success of our
Association for the past year or two
leads mo to a little extravagance
which I would ask that you hear
, with me by allowing the expendi
ture. Thanking the members of this
Association for their hearty co-operation,
Very truly yours,
The financial report showed the
payment in full of all outstanding
accounts including the payment of
taxes and back salaries which had
not been paid for years.
In accepting the report of Secre
tary Garcia a vote of thanks was ten
dered nun tor the nine maner in
which he conducted the financial
end of the association.
The history ofraeing in the past
on Maui was gone into and while it
was eoncccueu that the horses on
this island had not always been well
matched it was admitted that all

Attracts Great Interest on
San Francisco June 150. Every
American is deeply interested in
all matters pertaining to reclama
tion, irrigation and forestry, con
sequently all are interested in the
coming meeting of the National
Irrigation Congress, which is to
convene at Spokane, Washington,
The primary objects of the Con
gress are to save the forests, store
ilood waters of tho streams, reclaim
deserts and make homes on land
now desolate, and at these meetings
there is always actual demonstra
tion of the possibilities of the West
in development along these lines.
The Pacific coast is vitally in
terested in the work of this Con
gress, and every organization as
well as individuals, should aid in
having a good representation at
the Spokane meeting. The meet
ing held in Sacramento two years
ago was well nttended and its ac
tion was not only of interest but
of real practical value to the entire

of years had been clean and that
the best horse had always won.
The Hawaiian Star has the fol
lowing comment of the races at
"The Ililo race track scandals of
last Monday seems likely to result
in a general movement to take part,
at least, of future races away from
that city. It is not Ililo that is
objected to by thesportsand public,
hut it is a hui of crooks which has
apparently graited onto the town in
such way as to be hard to shake off.
Honolulu and Maui, if the present
talk carries, will see that Ililo is
enabled to lose her crooks.
In the meanwhile the suggestion
of the Hawaii Herald, published in
yesterday's Star, that an inter-is
land racing association be establish
ed, the programs to be pulled off
consecutively at Ililo, Kahului and
Honolulu, seems to meet with con
siderable favor, among horsemen.
There has been a kind of sentiment
heretofore in favor of letting Ililo
have the horse races as her share in
Hawaiian programs; hut certainly
the promoters of the idea did not
calculate that the arrangement would
send racing completely to the bow
wows. Around the clubs where horsemen
are in the habit of touching shoul
ders, or comparing notes, it is gen
eraly agreed that Honolulu will
never again take an active part in a
Hilo racing program until one or
more meets in other parts of the Is
lands has served to clear the track
of sharpers. To this end there is a
disposition to encourage and sup
port, even at this early date, any,
movement to pull off the next meet
at Kahului and to keep a kind of
quarantine" on Ililo until the
stench has cleared away.
California Profits by Heavy
San Francisco, June HO. Advance
statements regarding the fruit crop
have been fully borne out and re
ports received by The California
Promotion Committee from all
sources indicate that this will be a
very heavy fruit year.
Then; is strong demand for labor
in all agricultural districts, with
good wages ami promise of per
manent employment. Demand for
women and girls in the canning and
drying establishments over the State
is especially urgent.
Colonization effort'1 is receiving
great impetus, and many desirable
settlers are coming toall parts of the
Increased inquiry regarding Cali
fornia is noted throughout the East
and in Europe, and a number of
colonies are being formed to locate
in the State.
Great activity is shown in railroad
extension work in several parts of
the State, and a number of new
electrical lines are being projected.
During the month much interest
has been displayed in California by
investors of Holland and other
European financial centers.
California is already feeling the
impulse of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific
Exposition, and many tourists are
visiting tho State, which is coming
to be more andjnore recognized as
an all year resort. Tourist travel
for the coining year bids fair to
break all previous records.
G. Ah See, the Market street merchant,
will leave next Wednesday for Canton,
China, where he excepts to remain for
six months on a vacation.
In all the talk and kicking, how
ever, attention' is drawn to the fact
that all Hilo trackmen are not to
be censured for the sins of a few. It
was plain last Monday, and is freely
admitted at the clubs here, that a
largcs majority of the sportsmen of
Ililo tried to keep the races clean;
but that they too, were tricked by
the daring sharpers. The offer of
Mr. Moir, for instance, to pay all
purses out of his own pocket seems
to indicate that ho is smarting under
the storm of criticism; when, as a
matter of fact, so far as the Star
knows or is able to find out, there
is not nor has there ever been one
particle of criticism of the work of
In the meanwhile, Ililo may
purge herself of her sharpers and
swindlers, in which case the matter
may present itself in a different light
when the fair Second City again as
sumes the role of hostess. As the
matter now stands, however it would
be a hard matter to attract a cor
poral's guard to Hilo for, any sort
of a track meet." ,
Thero will be another meeting of
the members of the association on
August 17th at which time it is pro
IK)sed to change the by-laws.
It is proposed to change the date
of the annual election to January at
which time a programme will be
adopted for the races and time given
for the selection and training of the
horses by the racing men.
Every effort will be made to get
tho horses here from Hilo and Oahu
and any attempt by the crooks who
ran things so disastrously at Hilo to
repeat their work here will le sat on
instantly by this association which
has the reputation for square deal
ing and compelling all others to do
the same or get off their track.-
Angry Japanese Hold Jarrett
Awed by the gleaming bayonets
and brown carbines of a dozen de
termined police officers, three, hun
dred dogged strikers sullenly gave
way to the representatives of the
law at Waimanalo plantation yes
terday afternoon, and allowed six
teen of their number to be brought
into the city in an automobile,
It was a spectacular ending of
an eventful day on Waimanalo
plantation, where the Higher ,Vage
propaganda had led the plantation
laborers to request the discharge of
certain employes, which request
Manager Chalmers refused.
An assault upon one of the men,
whom the laborers wanted dismiss
ed, followed the demand of Sun
day, and yesterday morning Sheriff
Jarrett, accompanied by a Jap
anese interpreter, went over to the
plantation to arrest the assailants.
Following the arrest, the Sheriff
was penned up in the office of the
plantation surrounded by a deter
mined mob of Japanese, who only
gave way when three mounted
police officers, a'med with carbines,
dashed up to the office, followed by
two automobiles filled with foot
police armed with Sprinfields.
Bayonets were fixed the instant
the men arrived, and the crowd
was forced hacked from the build
ing, permitting the imprisoned
Sheriff to Icive.
Honolulu was electrified, or at
least the planters were, when they
heard that trouble had occurred on
the broad acres of peaceful Wai
manalo, famous for its early day
brilliancy, when Hon. John Cum
mins entertained royalty and bad
a private racecourse.
The news first came to Irwin iv
Co., agents of the plantation, that
an assault had taken place upon
laborer who did not dcMie to join
in the strike. They beat him, and
he complained to the manager,
who reported to the agent. Sheriff
Jarrett was comnii.uicated with,
ami In' went to the plantation in
an auto. On hisariival, he alter
ed four .lupanese implicated in the
assau1 1, each of whom was identi
fied by the injured man. Tbe.V
were taken to the oilier ami ques
tioned. The auto was prepared
for the return - trip to Honolulu,
and the -:herifT began loading the
men in. '
This was the signal for action on
the part of the crowd. Tho men
surged forward, surrounded the
auto, shook their fists under the
noses of the officers, and made
threats. One man shouted: "Me
make (die), no pilikia; all right."
An effort was trade to get the
prisoners away. Immediately the
crowd swarmed over the machine,
preventing the chauffeur from
working his levers. So suddenly
was the movement begun and end
ed that in an instant the prisoners
had been rescued and were being
absorbed by the crowd.
Sheriff Jarrett had as his assis
tant only the diminutive, hut
plucky, Japanese interpreter,
Townsend, and Officer Jones fiom
Koolau. They recaptured two or
three of the prisoners and retreat
ed toward the ofii.'o door. The
machino by this time was occupied
by rioters, who declared that if one
man wero arrested,- everybody
