AND GIVEN TO BR
Puunene and a picked team played
5 innings and the score was tied
with 6 runs each.

therefore were credited with a win.
STANDING OF THE TEAMS.
J. A. C.
On Sunday hist there was only
one game in the regular Maui Lea
gue baseball series. The Japanese
forfeited to the Puunenes and the
spectators were kept in a good
humor by a game being arranged
between a picked nine and the Puu
nenes. The regular game of the
series, between the Stars and the
Lahainas went ten innings before
the winning runs were made by the
Wailuku outfit It was a good game
and the rooters got very busy right
at the start.
The withdrawal of the J. A. C.
has been anticipated for some time.
The Nipponese found that they were
not nearly strong enough to play
against tho rest of the teams. They,
however, kept going for a while and
Coutmued on page 3.
Once more the County Supervi
sors have gotten through their re
gular monthly duties and, although
there was nothing exciting during
the days the solons labored, there
was a good deal of solid work done.
Reports of all kinds were read and
adopted. Hills were passed for pay
ment, and many details were at
tended to. Leave of absence, with
out pay, was given District Over
seer Decoto, of Lahaina, and Mr.
Willielm was appointed
down the position during
A. E. lirunuc was appointed
County Engineer without pay
and orders were given to have the
words "County Engineer" inserted
in the general condition in the eon-
tract for the construction of the
road on the west side of Kakipi
Gulch, instead of tho words "Pis
trict Overseer," The bond of Hugl
Howell for the contract for the work
on the same job, was accepted.
The board took up the considera
tion of the tenders for supplies and,
in one instance, it was found that
three firms' had offered to supply
p)i at the same price. Tho old sys
tem was to buy poi from one firm
for four weeks, and then to switch
over to the others, in turn, for
like period. Strange to say, the
prisoners, who consume most of the
poi, split on tho question of which
poi was tho best, and each month
there would be kicks by one faction

or 1110 otner. 1110 matter has now
been attended to and those who eat
the poi will have no chance to com
pare one lot with any other.
Professor Krauss Is Raising Wonderful
Crops on His Homestead
Prof. F. G. Krauss, of the College
of 'lawaii, who is one of the home
steaders at Haiku, does not expect
to develop his homestead entirely
along the line of pineapples, as most
of the settlers are doing. While ho
has some five acres in pines, which
arc doing well, ho also has a similar
area planted to corn and various
kjnds Of leguminous crops cow
peas, soy beans, jack beans, etc.
These crops are now maturing, and
Prof. Krauss, who has just come
over since the close of tho College
year, is exceedingly well pleased
with the results.
It is Prof. Krauss' ambition to
establish a seed farm one upon
which he can produce high grade
seeds suited especially to the
conditio! in this Territory. It is a
well kno 1 fact, as he points out,
that fewkplants brought directly
from the Inainland, do their best
until tbeyiave beeomo acclimated,
and this takes time and careful
selection. In the corn which he has
produced, however, it would be dif
ficult to imagine anything much
better than some which he has to
show. This ,was grown from high
grade pedigreed seed bred for twelve

What might have been a tragedy,
was nipped in the bud by the sus
picions of the man in the case, last
Monday evening, down at Kahului.
Mrs. Kaleionehu Makahio is said
by the polico to have threatened to
give her husband something"
while, at the same time, she held a
loaded revolver in her hand. The
woman was arrested and was admit
ted to bail in the sum of $100.
It appears that there had been a
family row, and that the husband
went inside the house to got away
from the woman. She is alleged to
have secured his revolver, and tohavo
then stepped on the verandah and
invited him to come out. The invita
tion was declined when the husband
lounu mat ins gun ' was missing
from tho bedroom.
Some friends also warned tho hus
band that his wife had the revolver
The polico were called, and the wo
man was taken away to a place
where she can do no damage.
Japanese pheasants are being dis
tributed all over Maui and lately
thirty-six were released eighteen at
Iao Valley, nine at Waihec and a
like number at Kahakuloa. The
birds are said to bo doing well and
although they are very shy, some
peeps at them have been obtained
Last year a couple of dozen were
let go at Makawao, and early this
year a bunch were released at I Ionclua
and over on Molokai. A number of
pheasants are coming for tho liana
district and, in all, fifty birds are
expected. from Japan within a short
time from now.

Charlie Maguire Was Helped Many Times
by Father Hard Times Predicted.
HONOLULU, June 20 The
sentence of Charlie Maguire to a
prison term is the linale to a career of
crooked actions, interspersed with
lucid moments of honest intent.
Maguire was weak and so remains.
He had tho extravagant ideas which
fall to the lot of the average son of
the rich man, with not always the
means for satisfying an expensive
thirst for pleasure. Several times had
tho father been called on to "make
good" for the son, and each time he
came through. Even in 1897, a year
after Charlie took oflice he fell short
and the father helped him through,
the last time the spark plug failed
to work and pater backfired pro
bably because circumstances would
not permit so long a reach. Charlie
was a good spender, and he
didn't care what happened because
he did not think it was going to

All records were smashed last
Wednesday when the Circuit Court
convened at Lahaina. The Grand
Jury was on hand and, after hear
ing the facts of three cases, as given
by Deputy County Attorney Vin
cent, returned three indictments.
The prisoners at once pleaded guilty,
and Judge Kingsbury sentenced
them within a few minutes- Tho
whole proceedings only took part of
the day and the Judge, Jury and
Attorneys were all back in Wailuku
early in the afternoon.
The indictmonts returned wero:
Ah Iloong, burglary, second degree;
Kudeden Kenko, burglary, second,
and William Kaholokai, burglary
first degree. The first two were
each sentenced to no les3 than two
years and no more than five years
jail. The third man was given a
sentence of not less than one year
and no more than three years.
The jury charge of Judge Kings
bury is given elsewhere. It was
listened to witli interest, and the
remark was made that it was one of
tho be3t tho Judgo has ever dclivcd.
The court adjourned till Thursday
next at 10 a. m., when the Trial
Jury will take up a couple of cases.
In order to increase tho interest
in tho championship doubles tourna
ment for the Harry Baldwin Cups,
the generous donor has decided to
donate two additional prizes for the
runners-up in tho competition.
Therefore, the pair that gots into
tho finals, but do not capturo tho
premier honors, will bo consoled
with a racquet each. That is some
of the right kind of consolation,
too, and tho tournament now ap
peals more than over to the tennis
players of Maui.

It may not be considered good
judgment to cry hard times but,
when the fact is so apparent what
is the difference. Hawaii is ente

a stab at the affair, had better got
busy and put their names down.
The doubles championship of
Maui is a very important contest
und the tournament will settle, for
a time, any dispute there may have
been as to which pair is the strong
est on this island. There has never
been much doubt as to that at
least for some time- past and Myers
and Richardson arc thought to be
it." The pair certainly, wero
very weak last August, in the big
match against Honolulu, but that
must have been their oil day.

G real preparations are being made
for the excursions from Honolulu
for Maui's Fourth. The final ar
rangements are that the Inter
Island Steamship Company will
despatch the Matina Kea. at ten
o'clock on the evening of July 15,
for Kahului. Those who simply
make the, trip to see the races, will
bo able to return to Honolulu on
tho same steamer, which is schedul
ed to leave Kahului at six o'clock
in the evening of the Fourth.
Tho most important matter in
connection with the excursion, how
ever, is the fact that the people who
care to, can como to Maui on the
Mauna Kea and return to "town"
on tho Claudino which will leave

At last the big tournament at
Kahului, for the Puunene Store
cups, is finished, and Myers and
Richardson, playing from scratch,
turned out to be winners. The pair
played good tennis right through
tho tournament and, by beating
Maclarcn and Savage in the finals,
cinched the two beautiful trophies
for one year at least.
The tournament was one of the
largest over played off on Maui and
the entry list was composed of the
best players on tho island. Tho
affair was a handicap competition,
and the consequence was that most
of the matches wero very closely
On Wednesday afternoon there
was a large crowd of tennis lovers
at the Kahului courts, and the in
terest taken in the final struggle of
the tournament was very keen. The
earth court was used, and it played
very well right through the contest.
The score of the match in the
finals was as follows: Myers and
Richardson beat. Savage and Macla

next at !) p. in., at the Maui Hotel.
It is expected that there will be a
large list for each event, and thst
the owners of nags from tho other
islands will be represented in person,
or by proxies.
From all appearances, tho Fourth
is going to be a memorable one,
notwithstanding the gloomy out
look as regards the sugar situation.
The real spirit of Hawaii especial
ly Maui will be abroad, and tho
Mauians and all their island friends
will have the time of their y&S8P2
There was a mooting of the Maui

Everybody Invited to the "M. D. G."

Goods & Grocerv Co.. Ltd..
celebrates tho oneninir of its
new store in Wailuku, and every
body is cordially invited to join
the many patrons of this- progres

Many of the kaniaainas in and
about Wailuku will remember the
late A. J. Rodrigues, who conduct
ed a small corner grocery store.
Mr. Rodrigues died in April 1904,
leaving his Estate in a rather bad
way. While his assets slightly
more than covered his liabilities,
these assets were largely in the
shape of real estate and buildings,
which could not be converted into
cash so easily.' Just about the
time of Mr. Rodrigues' death, the
creditors were rather pressing him
for funds. His liabilities amount
ed to ab6ut $9,000 with assets of
about $10,000. Upon his death,
the business was entrusted to J.
Garcia who conceived the idea of
incorporating the firm, not how
ever, until after the liabilities had
been reduced to about $7,000.
With a little insurance money
which Mrs. Rodrigues received,
Mr. Garcia set about soliciting
stock subscriptions for his new
corporation this was early in
1905. When the stock list was
completed, incorporation papers
were made up and the new organ
ization started out on its career in
At the preliminary meeting, Mr.
Garcia assured his stockholders
that should the company do a busi
ness of $2,000 per mouth, it would
be able to pay its stockholders a
fair dividend out of its profits.
