Adv. Everything' Ready For TheBig Show Baseball Grounds Transformed Big Line Of Wonderful Animals On Hand Po'ice Asked To Assist The Big Carnival will open with a bang next Monday afternoon at 4:00 P. M. at. the baseball grounds in Wai luku, and will keep up until midnight, and possibly a little later. A street parade of horribles, such as has nev er been seen on Maui will precede the big event. Th Zoo will be openea at about 2 o'clock to allow the animals to roam about Kahului and Wailuku, but the management of the Carnival has given the police assurance that the lion, bears and wild animals will be kept caged up. Maui has never seen so many weird animals together at. any lime. The gates at the grounds will be thrown op n at four o'clock. The dec oration committee, headed by Sheriff Crowi-11, will leave nothing undone to show the visitors a symphony in color arranged to match -the different booth3. The "House of Fun" is com plete, aiid a vaudeville extravaganza has been prepared which will be well worth the money. This will be a sort of continuous performance. There will be bands and music ga lore, the electric Illuminations will be grand, and gay costumes will abound. Some of the best talent on Maui has been engaged for the Spielers' Union, and between this, fireworks and the circus tent, there should not be a dull moment for the affair. The dance , pavilion is already in place. This will be in charge of Miss Mary Hoffman, and her orchestra will furnish music well suited to the occas ion. Ice-cream, coffee and lemonade booths will be close by. Charles Lake, chairman of the luau committee, says he will have something unique, par ticularly attractive to the stranger within our gates. It is not generally known that even in an affair of this kind, sometimes a pawn-shop is a ne cessity, so it has been arranged that the familiar three-ball sign shall be prominent. The Hawaiian and Portuguese booths will be typical of the nations they represent, while the flower, can dy and fancy booth will be tastily dec orated to suit. A zobo band has also been engaged to furnish some of the music, in case thhe regular music is unable to stand the strain. Augustine Pombo is ring-master of the Circus, and will lead his band of wild ani mals through the streets. When the Carnival closes at about midnight Monday, it will do so only temporarily, as the grounds will again be thrown open on Tuesday, July 4th, at 6 P. M., when new vaudeville num bers, etc. will be in order. The object of the carnival is for the improvement, of the St. Anthony's Church, and the committee hopes for liberal l llronagej. The principal stores have consented to close duriug the progress of the carnival, allowing their employees opportunity to enjoy the fun as well as others. No Saloon Closing For Fourth This Year The license board at its meeting yesterday voted down a motion to have saloons in Wailuku and Kahului closed between 9 a. m. and 4 p. m. on the Fourth of July, Case and Lindsay favoring it, Lufliin and Kaae opposing, and Chairman Ben Lyons supporting the negatives. The result will be that contrary to the usual custom, liquor will be sold the same on next Tuesday as on any other day. Molokai Choir Goes To Defend Banner In Hilo Between 80 and 90 delegates to the big Hawaiian Evangelical conference in Hilo, left Maui from Lahaina on Wednesday night by the Mauna Kea. They were joined at Lahaina by the delegation of about 40 from Molokai. The conference exercises began on Thursday, and will continue most of next week. Perhaps the biggest(interest of most of the delegates from all parts of the territory centers in the two song con tests between choirs of the different Islands. For the past 2 years Molokai has held the Kate Atherton banner for putting forward the. best choir, and If Molokai can win she will claim the trophy permanently. However, other choruses have been training hard, and the results of the contest can only bo guessed at before it is over. Oahu is this year represented by the splendid choir of Kaumakapili church. The big contest takes place next Thursday night. This year the Sunday school association and the Christian Endeavor societies will have another contest by their singers, on Tuesday night. This will be a new feature of the conference. Maui Girls Win In Three Great Games Fasted Batkit Call Ever Played In Local G)m.

When the final basket was thrown by the locals, making the score 21 to 20 in their favor, pandemonium broke loose. It. has been a great week for the Wailuku gymn, and the winning of three straight and terrifically fought games will be long remembered , in the Settlement annals. The first game, played on Tues day evening, resulted in a score of 45 to 15 some of this discrepancy rtoubtless being ue to thP' fprt. that the visiting team had had a try ing time on the Claudine the night befc'e. The fra,mr on Wednesday nitrht, however, with its score of 21 to 25, was probably one of the closest played games ever seen in tlY Islands. From the start the nm seesawed back rid frf-th. and it was anybody's game right up to the last second. At no time was the 'Jead more than 4 points .for either side. The game played last night, which wis not renulred was one of much the same character. For several years the Honolulu girls have consistently taken all the rames that have been played with the Maul team, and consequently- the success at this time is especially grM'fyinT. Thf1 visitors' team consists of the following: forwards. Lizzie Ianua, T,i?zie Akuna; guards, Mary Luhau, Lillian Biart; centers, Lehue Aluna hele. Hannah LI Kwai; ; substitute, Elizabeth Spencer; coaeh Miss Ev elyn Cunningham. The Alexander House girls lined un as follows: forwards.Mary Hoffman Tweet Robinson; guards, Mary Hart, Helen A van: centers, Mrs. A. Garcia, Ella Bal; substitute, Katie Adams. Both teams have been having a glorious time with parties, dinners and auto trips. Following the game last night a verydelightful dance was much enjoyed atthe Gymn. Yesterday the girls were entertained at lunch by r. C. Lindsay, at his home in Paia, and in the evening at dinner bv Mr. and Mrs. Mathews of Yr-;1-.!1 u. To'if they have enioyc' rv r-rr.r'i par Waihee. The Tr.oWi 'rl- will leave bv rav r fr homo by the Maua I""ti. tonight. . Memories Awakened By Passing Of Old Church Jm 2"!h wai a rncnorahle day at the Mahav.-ao Unlo-t Church of Paia becaU'e H w,3 th hut Sunday dur ing wh'cU relSglcui services were to be held prevlrvis to the dismantling of the ImilMmr. The ey-rcics were especially mark, cd by a benu'iful solo by Mrs. Jones, and an iitc-esling sermon of a semi historical nature, entitled "The Pas sing of the Old Church",by Rev. A. C. Bowdish. , The first building of the church was a small wooden structure at Makawao on the site now occupied by the cem etery. The change of location was made to the present situation for two reasons, first because of the shifting of the center of the district's populat ion and second because the present position marks the place where the late Mr. H. P. Baldwin nearly lost his life. The present church was dedicated on Sunday, March 10th, 1889 In the presence of a congregation of one hun dred and fifty people; the ceremonies of the day being in charge of the pastor. Rev. Thomas Gulick assisted by Rev. S. E. Bishop, Rev. Wm. Ole son, and Rev. Mr. Morris. Some of the better known minis ters of the church have been, Rev. Mr. Rouse who was the first pastor in the first church at Makawao; Rev. Thomas Gulick who ministered in both churches and who died of fever in Africa while on a hunting trip with the late Samuel T. Alexander; Kev. Dr. Edward G. Beckwith, Rev. Mr. Turner, and Rev. A. C. Bowdish who has been in charge for the past four years. During the present week the organ will be removed to its new location In the Kahului Union Church. Then the memorial windows will be careful ly taken out and the general demolit ion of the building will follow. If Is thought that divine worship will be continued in the Community House for at least a year before the completion of the new edifice. ' The new structure will be of lava stone, stone and cement.
