WHAT is Maui going to do regarding the big carnival of next
February? That this island should be represented by a float,
goes without saying. The Maui spirit will demand that the
Valley Isle be properly represented in Honolulu on the biggest day of
In Honolulu all is bustle and hard work at present. The men in
charge of the arrangements and preparations for the carnival are going
ahead with their work in good shape, and the prospects of having the
best gala day in the history of the Hawaiian Islands are bright.
The Maii Chamber of Commerce should take up the matter of the
float that is to represent this island, and no efforts should be spared to
make the Maui entry the best in the whole parade.
Judge Davis struck the right note when he declared at the meeting
of the Bar Association, that a couple of years ago all Maui was kicking
against Judge Kingsbury but that, at the present time, all the decent
citizens of the island are very much in favor of retaining Judge Kings
bury on the bench. To have turned the judge down would have been a
bad mistake. He has always been fair, square and impartial, and he has
always acted as a gentleman. Because he will not waste time over some
badly taken points of law, a certain class of lawyers have no use for
Good hearted people of Maui are signing a petition asking for clem
ency on behalf of young McBryde, the youth who was arrested in Wai
luku some weeks ago as a deserter from the Fifth Cavalry. The peti
tioners ask that as much mercy as possible be shown the deserter on
account of his young wife and infant child. If, on any occasion, it is
possible for the Military authorities to temper justice with mercy, the
case alluded to should have a claim on the attention of the army court.
The Christmas number of The Paradise of the Pacific is the best ever
issued from the presses of the well known company. The lavish
amount of illustrations and reading matter comes as a supprise. The
pictures are well chosen and two in particular "Sunrise" and "Sun
set" are beautiful specimens of the art of modern printing. The
Paradise goes to all parts of the world and there should also be a big
local demand for copies of the Christmas number.
Judge Kingsbury missed the endorsement of the Bar Association by
only two votes. Considering that several lawyers who would have
Voted for him did not receive notice of the meeting in time to attend,
it can be seen that Judge Kingsbury had bad luck as far as the Bar As
sociation went. However, Governor Frear sent Kingsbury's name to
the President and that settled matters. Maui is to be congratulated
on the reappointment of the Judge.
The question of schools seems to be interesting more people than
ever before, and the fact that prominent people are writing and talking
of the subject every day, shows that, in the future, the people who pay
the taxes that keep up the institutions, will do all in their power to
get a system that they think is best for the peculiar needs of Hawaii.
Claudine, Leaving Kahnlui On Satur
day Afternoons Will Land Pas
sengers At Early Hour.
It is to be hoped that the Kihei boat landing will be contructed as
soon as possible. The sum available is sufficient to build a wharf on
modified plans, and even that, will be better than nothing.
There is more talk of Maui now-a-days than ever before in Honolulu.
The advertising the island is getting from different sources is telling
the tale, and Maui is kept well before the public.
When the new schedule of the
steamer Clandine ie force, it will be
an easy thing to visit Honolulu and
only be away from Maui for a few
hours. Bailing direet from Kahului
for Honolulu, the steamer will get
underway nt four o'clock on Satur
day afternoons. The run down, or
is it up, to Honolulu will take six
and one half hours. On that basis
the Maui man can enjoy his soda
water in Honolulu at half-past ten
o'clock on Saturday night.
At the meeting of the Maui
Chamber of Commerce, last week,
the attitude of the Chamber on the
question was asked for by J. N. S.
Williams. After some discussion
it was moved and seconded that Mr.
Williams be instructed to inform
the Inter-Island Company that the"
Maui Chamber of Commerce favored
the idea of having the Claudine
leave Kahului at four o'clock on
Saturday afternoon, instead of at
The advantages of being able to
board a steamer at four o'clock in
the afternoon, and to be on Port
street at half-past ten o'clock that
night, were fully realized by the
members of the Cham!er of Com
merce and the remark was passed
that the Claudine would veiy often
be a crowded boat.
If the original schedule had been
adhered to, the steamer would
have to sail at five in the afternoon.
That would land passengers in Ho
nolulu just about in time to miss
the last cars to the suburbs, In
order to avoid this and to enable
the passengers to catcli the last cars,
the change to four o'clock is to be
W. II. Hoogs, the "Algaroba
Pet," was in town during the week.
He made a hurried business trip
and talked kiawe all the time. The
big feed company which Mr. Hoogs
represents, is branching out in
every direction, and the merits of
algaroba as a feed is becoming
known from one end of the world
to the other.
The poor man can make good
money by collecting the beans and
shipping them to the mill in Hono
lulu. Algaroba trees flourish on
Maui and the Kihei beans are the
largest und best in the group.
Local mills for the grinding of
the Algaroba beans will soon be in
full swing and then the industry
will go ahead faster than ever.

clergyman of the Church of England.
About 19 years ago he had a call
from New Zealand, and he has
charge of a large parish in the sub
urbs of Auckland. II first became
aware of his wonderful gift while
working on his own lanu near
Auckland. In many instances he
has discovered plentiful supplies of
water in that vicinity. The Bishop
of Auckland has given a special
license to Mr. Mason to exercise
this remarkable gift. It is pleasant
to know that Mrs. Mason, who is
now in Honolulu, has similar

Will the motor car industry be
affected to any great extent by the
result of the recent election? An
expression on this point was request
ed of II. B. Joy, President of the
Packard Motor Car Company, which
has an investment of twenty millions
in the manufacture of motor vehicles.
"Yo'i asked for my comments on
the election results and in what way
they may be expected to affect the
business of the country," said Mr.
Joy. "It is difficult to be a pro

a century is a better prophet than I
