Maui Prepares to Welcome
The Portuguese colony on Maui
has made very little display, and
advertised a whole lot less, the en
tertainment which they arc prepar
ing to give the officers and crew of
the Portuguese cruiser San Gabriel.
Vet, if the program that they had
prepared for Sunday docs not sur
pass anything given the officers dur
ing their stay in Hawaiian waters,
tho Maui News is. mistaken in its
guess. Our Portuguese Americans
have a way of doing things, their
own way without much ado, and
tho excellent program which it is
their intention to carry out, speaks
well for the short day which will be
spent on this Island by the repre
sentatives of their homejgoverninent.
M. G. Santos of Paia, is chairman
of the general committee in charge
of tho affair, and his efforts to make
the day a success has been well re
paid by the cooperation given him
by the members of the various com
mittees appointed. Contributions
to the fund have been made by
Portuguese of tho Island, and gene
rous offers by otAer prominent par
ties have been gratefully accented.
Tho Portuguese Consul, Hon. A.
de S. Canavarro will be a guest of
the Commander on his trip from
Honolulu to Hilo and return, and
while on Maui, Mr. Canavarro will
be entertained in company witli the
officials of the cruiser.
According to-program, the cruiser
will arrive at Kahului, at S a. in.
Sunday morning. The tug Leslie
Baldwin will convey tho reception
committee and tho honorary recep
tion committee consisting of Hon.
II. P. Baldwin, Hon. S. B. Kimrs-

Garcia, so that-arrangements can be

After tho cruiser has been moored
Maui's welcome will be extended
by the committee, who will bo con
veyed to the cruiser in a decorated
lighter. On shore tho officers of tho
cruiser will be welcomed by Com
pany I of the National Guard and by
tho Maui County Band in charge of
Bandmaster Schrader. The officers
vill then bo taken in charge by the
transportation committee and con
veyed to lao Valley, where break

Tho lao' breakfast is in charge of

Tho entertaining committee, con
sisting of tliQ transportation com
mittee and others, will then escort
tho party through tho principal
points of interest in Central Maui,
returning to Kahului at 1:30 p. m.
where a real Hawaiian luau will bo
in waiting. A few short speeches
will Ik) made at the luau, which will
also bo tho public reception. Port
uguese from all parts of the Island
aro requested to bo present at the
luau and reception at 2 p. m. 1 ranis
will bo run from all points of Maui
in time for the luau and reception.
To avoid any conrMion at tho ball
grounds at Kahutui, where the gen
eral reception will ho held, persons
of other nationalities will bo admit
ted by card or ticket. After the
luau the officers will bo free until
5:30 p. m. when they will bo given
a grand farewell, Tho management
and officials of tho Central Maui
plantations have been generous in
their assistance, and the members
of the committee aro thankful that
