A. L. Case
Former Hawaii Man Coming Back From
Coast to Take supervising Princi
palship Case To Paauilo.
(Special Wireless to Maul News.)
HONOLULU, May 21. William Mc
Cluskey, formerly supervising princi
pal on the Island of Hawaii, but now
holding an important position in the
school department of North Carolina,
has been appointed to succeed A. L.
Case, as supervising principal of the
county of Maul.. Mr. Case, whoso res
ignation was accepted by the scTtool
commissioners on Tuesday, has been
appointed to the principalship of the
Paauilo, Hawaii, school.
The commissioners of education
took a pledgo to secrecy at the close
of their session In Honolulu this week,
on the most vitally Interesting feat
ure of their work, namely: the matter
of appointments. Although the ap
pointments of teachers for all the
schools In tho territory were all ap
proved, tho lists were not In order
when the session adjourned on Tues
day evening, and It was decided to
have the announcement mado by Sup
erintendent Kinney at a later date.
Particular interest centers In the
matter of tho supervising principal !
ship for Maui. It has been an open
secret for some weeks past that A.
Li. Case, who has held this place for
several years, had been asked to re
sign, on recommendation of General
Inspector George S. Raymond. The
matter was to bo decided finally at
the commissioners' meollng, and It Is
understood that tho resignation was
accepted. Inspector Raymond's rea
sons for asking for the resignation
were that Mr. Case's health was not
sufficiently strong to permit his cov
ering the outlying districts as they
should bo covered, and that he is not
sufficiently rigid as a disciplinarian. It
as reported that Mr. Case was to have
tho principalship of tho Lahaina
school, succedlng Principal O. T.
Boardman, who has resigned and who
expects to leave for the coast after
the close of tho school term. This,
it seems, is not tho case, though who
is to have Mr. Boardman's place is
In the matter of Mr. Caso's success
or, one report had it that Prof. W. S.
Beeman, principal of tho Hamakua
poko high school had been appointed,
while another was that Supervising
Principal Eugcno Horner, of Hawaii,
was to get the job.
Mr. McCluskoy's appointment Is a
matter- of considerable surprise to
most persons. It is understood, how
over, that his record on Hawaii was
exceptionally good, and that ho has
the fullest confidence of Superinten
dent Kinney. He was at one time
principal of tho Papalkou school, and
afterwards supervising principal,
which position ho held at the time
he decided to leave for tho Coast. Ho
is, married to a MIbs Lyman, of Hilo,
.who is a cousin of Mrs. W. O. Aiken.
Although It Is understood that Mc
Clusky holds a most excellent posi
tion in North Carolina, it is believed
by his friends that tho "come back"
germ has become too strong for him
and his wife.

Hawaii's Again Win

lighting Their Backers Hawaiis 4
STANDING OF TEAMS.
Hawnlis ...2 0
Palas 1 1
Puunenes 0 2
Those who believed that Cummlngs'
Colts won their first game from Ppla
by a chance of fortune, had reason
to change their minds last Sunday
when the youngsters put another ono
over by taking n neat game from tho
strong Puuneno aggregation by a
score of 4 to 2. There doesn't seem
to bo any doubt a'uout it the Hawalls
can play ball.
The game was attended by a fair
crowd, and tho work of both teams
wa3 much to tho liking of tho fans.
Williams for Puunene did 'good work
from the mound, striking out fen men,
walking but one, and giving but three
hits. Cockett did nearly as well, re
tiring eight batters, passing three, and
nlso allowing three hits.
George Cummings docs not try to
hldo his pride in his kids, butho gives
them all the credit, declaring that It
is the enthusiastic practice they are
doing that is telling the talo.
Tomorrow's game will bo between
the Paias and Puunenes. Theso teams
should draw a good attendance, as
they have lots of followers.

Landing Not to be Abandoned
Kihei Will Have Direct Honolulu
Service Also According to Plans.
McGregor's Is not to be abandoned
as tho principal place of landing nt
Maalaea Bay. This was mado evident
when tho legislature appropriated
$10,000 from the loan fund for tho pur
poso of making improvements at this
port. Kihei, which It was expected
some months ago was to handle all of
the business on tho other side, cut
ting out McGregor's as a port of call
for tho Inter-Island boats entirely,
will probably servo .simply the Kula
Although tho uhaif sheds wero re
moved from tho old landing some
time ago, tho plan to abandon tho
wharf did not meet with the approval
of the steamship company, or of tho
people of Central Maul gonerally,-and
tho latest announcement Is generally
pleasing In consequence.
In order that the Kula and Kihei
people may have facilities for direct"
shipment of their produce to Hono
lulu, it is the plan to havo the Mauna
Loa call at Kihei on her tri-monthly
down trips, and also that tho Mika
hala shall stop there weekly to doll
ar and receive freight.
Since the accident at Lahaina a tow
weeks ago, when two persons wero
drowned through the capsizing of a
ship's boat, the sentiment In fuvor pf
McGregor's as a safer landing place
has increased. It is pointed out that
in caso of rough weather at Lahaina
it will be possible for passengers from
West Maul to reach McGregor's with
out serious Inconvenience.
