TIIK MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, JULY 4, 1914
Haleakala will come into its own
as ii groat tourist resort if thccfforts
to lie made ly tlie promotion com
mittee are lacked up adequately by
the resident of Maui. The members
of the promotion committee have
become reenthused over the possibi
lities of the great extinct crater by
tho enthusiasm displayed over the
sight of the sunrise and sunset from
tho summit by John P. Clum, the
lecturer for the Southern Pacific
Railroad, who recently made the
trip, says the Advertiser.
"Thousands of people go to Swit
zerland every year and ride orcliinb
to tho top of the Rigi-Kulm just to
catch a momentary glimpse of the
valley and lake through the rifts in
the clouds below them," said J. D.
Mclnerny at last week's meeting of
the promotion committee, "while
one can feast on the same sight,
only more beautiful, ally.day at our
'House of the Sun.'
"Haleakala has a more wonder
ful range of scenery within the short
compass of a score of miles than
many of the famous show places of
"If the Maui people will awaken
to the possibilities of their island
from a tourist standpoint and build
roads and trails, and put up good
hotels in various central locations, I
believe they will have not simply
scores but hundreds of tourist
making Haleakala their objective.''
Since bis return to the Coast Mr.
Clum has written Secretary Wood as
Supreme Scenic Speclect'
"Haleakala appeals to me as the
supreme scenic spectacle of the Ha
waiian group, and I believe that the
time is not far distant when that
great crater will be famed through
out the traveled world as one of the
sublime wonders of creation.
"Notwithstanding all its charm
of climate and array of fascinating
landscapes and weather of mountain
scenery, Hawaii cannot afford to
overlook or to neglect that marvelous
arena once the playground of the
goddess Pole and now poetically de
signated in the native tongue as
'The House of the Sun.'
"Within the crater is displayed a
scene of such magnitude and magni
fience as must stir the heart of the
most prosaic visitor and impress its
uplift upon tho soul of every be
holder. Should Be Exploited
"Its grandeaur and its glory
should be proclaimed far and wide,
and it should be made so accessible
that all travelers of all ages from all
countries could enjoy the grand pa
norama with a minimum of exertion
"The indifference shown to Hale
akala as a scenic asset is a crime
offending against the higher educa
tion and civilization of mankind,
and at the same time depriving the
Islands of such deserved renown and
"When Kilauea's fires shall have
forever ceased to glow, the glories of
Haleakala will yet continue to spread
the fame of Hawaii throughout the
world because of the thousands who
will annually look into that magni
ficent crater and whoso wondering
eyes will never be disappointed.
"In view of theso considerations
I feel confident that those charged
with tho direction of Hawaiian
affairs will speedily establish a road
approaching the summit of Hale
akala and provido at tho crater's
brink su'ih accommodations as will
enable travelers to pass one or two
nighta on tho mountain's crest with
out unnecessary exposure or actual

Secretary Wood said that Mr.
Clum travels all over tho East de
livering a scries of lectures on west
ern scenery. There is never a hint
in any of these lectures about the
Southern Pacific or the Pacific'.Mail.
All that the paid lecturers are sup
posed to do is to create a desire on
the part of mainland tourists to see
Hawaii. Tho companies trust to
their business agents to get their
share of the Wet-bound trallic.

New Name for Carnival
Mrs. C. B. Kinney, of Paia, has
written to the director-general of
the Mid-Pacific Carnival, offering a
number of suggestions for Hawaii's
big annual fete. Most of the pro
posals are good ones, and have at
tracted considerable attention in
Honolulu. Mrs. Kinney thinks that
some distinctive Hawaiian name
should be chosen for the event, in
stead of "Carnival." She suggests
"Iloonanao," which she says con
veys a similar meeting. She would
also have the ladies of Honolulu
organize and take up various fea
tures of qarnival week. Director
