(Continued on Pae Five.) 30 Inches Of Rain In Three Days Time Rain Sage In lao Tells Story of Cloud burst That Carried Death and Destruction Down Valley. Most Probably In Few Hours. Thirty indies Qf rain fell in three dsiys on the table-lands of lao Valley, (elevation ICOO feet) at the time of the big Hood last week. This was ascertained by C. T. Bailey, of the hydrogra phic survey, who had visited the rain gage just, before the big storm, and again afterwards. The water in the gage must have accumulated on Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, and the bulk of it prob ably fell on Monday night and early Tuesday morning, just pri or to the tremendous rush of water down the stream, which came with such suddenness that a dozen lives were lost and scores of others had narrow es capes. Some indication of how terri fic must have been the down pour in the upper part of the valley, may be gained when it is remembered that the heavy rains in Wailuku during the whole week ending noon June 20. amounted to but 12.42 in-, dies. Probably not less than a foot and a half of water was' precipitated into the narrow pocket of the upper valley dur ing Monday night, a week ago, to flow out almost instantly in an overwhelming torrent. Typewriter Wizard Amazes Maui Typists ' Considerable interest has been aroused on Maui this week by O. H. Blaisdell, a typewriter expert, who has been in the Islands for several weeks fn the interests of the Underwood company. Mr. Blaisdell, who was the winner of the world championship re cord for speed, in 1910 and 1911, gave demonstrations of his skill at the Wai luku court house, the First National Hank of Wailuku, and the Baldwin National Bank, of Kahului, writing from unfamiliar copy from 120 to 140 voids per minute, and near the same number from dictation. A large num bi r of persons watched each of these exhibitions, with real amazement. The International Typewriter Trophy, which is a J1000 cup, has been con tested for annually since 1907. The trophy was supplied by the various hading machine manufacturers. Mr. lilaisdell has not been in the contests for several years. Teal Company Makes Many Maui Friends Bad Weather Interferes But Attend ance is Fair Company Made Up of Clever Entertainers. The Ravmond Teal Cnnmnnv. whtpli closed its five nights engagements on -nam last, nigni, uiu a lair business from the box ofiice standpoints, in spite of handicaps In way of bad wea ther. As for the Maul theater patrons the change from the iniessant movies t oreal flesh and blood actors, was de cidedly refreshing. The companv is one of the best of its kind that 'has ever come to the islands. Mr. Teal himself is an exceedingly clever comedian, particularly In coon parts, which he deos not turn into carica tures. Fritz Field is another actor who always makes good as a fun mak er. His work is never of the crude order, and he gets his humor across every time in a way that keeps his audiences convulsed. The "Ducklings" of course are, In the aggregate the big feature of the show. They are a more than ordinari ly attractive bunch, and their good looks are by no means dependent up on grease paint In matter of ward robe they are elaborately supplied. Miss Madeline Itowe made a favor able impression with her really excel lent contralto voice, and Miss Hazel Lake is a storm-center of merriment in her wierd dance numbers. The Teal Company has amplv made good in Oahu, Ililo, and now on Maui, and it deserves its success. .

No Change In Death List Ofj Big Storm One Body Still Unrecovered May Never Be Found, Kula Roads In Bad Shape The body of the little 8-year old Sodetani girl, who with her mother and baby brother were nniang the victims of the great lao Valley flood, has not yet been found. The list of dead from the disaster remains the same as reported last week 13. All of the bodies except that of the Japan ese girl have been recovered and iden tified. Although the stream bid has been most carefully searched, no trace ot It has been discovered, and it will probably never be recovered. It is resumed to have either been cov ered with soil by the shifting of the stream bed, or carried out to sea by the rushing torrent. The coroner's ury empaneled last week to pass upon the deaths of the various storm victims, was not as sembled until this afternoon, in hope of finding the last body. The jury find ings win or course simply be a mat ter of form. HIGH SCHOOL THEATRICALS. This afternoon the members of the freshman class of the Maul High School gave before the school assemb ley a one act farce of which the Utile is Pratical Jokes." The cast was as follows: I'ncle Toby, a joker John Ross McConkey Tom Ashbrook Thomas Howell Jimmy Culverin Harold Sauers Letiiia Ten Kyck , .Gladys Meinecke Emily Ten Eyek Thelma Boyum Kula Road Still Impassable. The road to Lahaina ws opened to tralllo last Saturday, and while much work remains to bo done in replacing washed out bridges, and in other re pairs, there are no serious difficulties in traversing it. In Kula, however, practically all bridges and many fills were washed out, the roads are still impassable in most' instances to ve hicle tratllc, and the whole district Is in a measure isolated. lao Stream Again Does Some Damage Another Kona Rain Puts Water to Dangerous Stage. Road to Laha- ina Again Flooded Steamers Re fuse to Land. More kona weather, with strong south-east winds at Lnlialna, and heavy rains around Wailuku, caused a good deal of inconvenience, but no great amount of damage, Wednesday and Thursday of this week. At Lahaina the wind was so strong that the cap tain of the Mauna Kea refused to send a boat ashore, though several passengers bound for Hilo, succeeded in boarding the vessel from Gay's launch, which also brought the mail ashore. The .nail, for central Maui however, did not get over until yes terday, on account of the rains which had again made the Lahaina road im passable. The rain in the Wailuku district was particularly heavy on Wednesday afternoon and night, and lao stream was on the rampage, but not to the extent that it was during the disas trous flood of last week. The water however, arose to a dangerous height, and fears were felt that the section of town adjacent the Market street bridge would again bo Hood-swept. Water Works Crippled. The temporary flumes for the Wai luku water BUpply were carried out, and have had to be replaced at some cost and inconvenience. The Wailuku Sugar Company's mill was compelled to again suspend grinding because the pipes supplying water to the mill were carried out. A house belonging to the same company, up the valley, which had been badly damaged by the first flood, was this time swept away, but this loss is not great. No serious damage to repair work under way was done, due to vigilance and hard work of plantation employes. Saints Let Down In Opening New Series Waikapus Use White Wash Brush in Good Shape Chinese Forfeit Game to Japanese. The strenous strin of St. Anhonys in winning in their championship game with the Chinese on the 16th last, proved faal to them last Sunday, when they opened the second series with the Waikapus, and were white washed by a score of 6 to 0. Kala I'elekai, tho slahster of tho Waikapus, is doing good work and it la mostly due to his pitching that his team carried the long end of the score in Sunday's game. E. Uodrigues first pitched for the Saints and his benders were some what puzzling to the other side. Ho held them down to three runs for six innings when he was replaced in the 7th by "Blackie" Keehu, said to be the best pitcher in the league. But it was evidently his off day and the Wai kapus found three runs off him in the 8th, making six runs altogether. The Chinese did not appear on the diamond to play the Asahis last Sat urday for reasons unknown to the Asahis. and Umpire Cummings de clared the game forfeited to the Nip ponese. Next Sunday the Saints and Asahis will open the first game at 1 p. ni., while the Celestials and the Waikapus will show their skill in the second game at 3 p. m.
