AUI never welshes and the
o diseredit this island by
legislators was withdrawn by
is a deliberate scheme to sully the fair name of the Valley Island.
The invitation was suit out in all ood faith, and the first plan was
to entertain the legislators for at least two full days. It was hoped
that they would come on a Saturday and stay till Monday evening.
That was the idea of the members of the Maui Chamber of Commerce
when that body issued the imitation. Then word of another plan
which would only allow the legislators one day Sunday on Maui, was
passed along. Acting in good faith, the executive got busy and called
another meeting at which plans for the entertainment of the visitors
were all made. The members mapped out a plan of operations, and it
was published in the Wireless of Wednesday last.
The wireless message of Thursday last from Honolulu, in which it
was stated that Maui had withdrawn the invitation, came as a shock to
everybody' Xo such suggestion was ever made, and those people who
took it upon themselves, in Honolulu, to issue such a statement, should
be slinwn up as the liars they are.
BOOST THB FAIR.
T I IK legislators of lioth houses are welcome to Maui, and they
will surely have a good time while on the Valley Island. The
needs of this island will be put plainly before the solons, and
everyone who has the interest of Maui at heart should make it a point
of telling of our needs and what we want appropriations for. And, let
every man and woman urge upon the legislators the necessity for the
appropriation of gJOO.OOO for the proper representation of Hawaii at the
San Francisco 1915 exposition. When the Panama Canal is opened
Hawaii will begin to get the real tourist crop. The big exposition will
advertise these islands on the mainland, and to hundreds of thousands
of visitors from all parts of the world. The sum of money asked for
will be repaid ten times over and the legislature should realize that fact.
IT would seem to be a good idea to have the county engage the ser
vices of a competent outside engineer to go over the whole Kula
Pipe line business, and to report on the best site for a reservoir.
The probable cost could be estimated by the engineer, and his report
could be compared with those reports already in the possession of the
supervisors. It is merely a business proposition, and everyone inter
ested in the well-fare of the Kula district should welcome the idea of
an outside engineer going over the whole proposition.
It is about time that steps were taken to get the baseball season going.
The time is short now and the public does not want to miss its full
share of the national game. The games in Wailuku will probably at
tract more people than ever before. A good series will be arranged by
the local league, and the Sunday trains from the country are sure to
bring big crowds of fans to the capital city of Maui.
The people of Hawaii have many things to be thankful for and,
when one reads of the terrible floods
caused by the waters, one can but
a tranquil, safe place, to dwell in.

If you could cast away the pain,
The sorrows and the tears
And let the Joys alone remain
From all departed years,
If you could quite forget the sighs
And recollect the sour
What think you? Would you be as wise,
As helpful or as strong?
If you could lay the burden down
That bows your head at whiles,
Shun everything that wears a frown
And live a life of smiles
lie happy as a child aealn.
As free from thoughts of care
Would you appear to other men
More noble or more fair?
Ah, nol A man should do his part
And carry all his load,
Rejoiced to share with every heart
The roughness of the road.
Not given to thinking overmuch
Of pains and griefs behind.
But glad to bo in fullest touch
With all his humankind.
