Investors Are Interested
Maul stockholders may soon control

ing to Charles B. Hall, who has been
on this Island for sometime interest

Savings and Supply Company. The
company is now controlled with all its

opinion on the company after he had

shortly afterward came here with the
Jntenuon of placing as much of he

the company is $125,000 and it is the
Plan to reorganize the company and
Incorporate it under the laws of Ha
wail with a capital of $200,000 The
stock is being sold at one dollar a
share, the par value.
As assurance of his Intention to
make he purchase. Hall has deposit

Die stock of the Colorado corporation
h held in escrow in a Fort Collins
bank and when the required amount
is subscribed here, the Dank of
Hawaii will conclude the transaction
by sending for the stock. The dif
ference between the purchase prioe
and th intended capitalization of the
new company, the sum of $75,000, will
become treasury stock to be used as
the stockholders see fit.
The business of the Stork Savings
system is a novel advertising scheme
which provides a bank account for the
education of a child after becoming
15 years of age. Briefly, the system
used is to interest a bank and a numb
er of non-competative stores in the
Stork plan. The merchants agree to
give a small sum for every new cus
tomer brought them and five per cent
discount on all purchases made by a
family which is enrolled as a Stork
Savings customer. The discount is
given in the form of scrip which can
be deposited as money at the bank.
All deposits cannot be withdrawn un
til the child has reached the age of
15. To get these deposits the bank
agrees to give each child enrolled one
dollar as an initial deposit, besides the
usual savings interest.
It is in the Initial fees the merchants
give to the company in which its re
turns, are secured. It is said that the
system is now being used with suc
cess in seventeen cities on the main
land and that the company's field can
be broaded to take in every city In
the United States.
Hall feels confident that the control
ling interest In the company will be
purchased by Maui investors. He
says that some of the shrewdest iiv
vestors on the island have subscribed
for stock. If the controlling interest Is
bought here, he says that Maul will be.

MANOA CLEANS UP SUGAR
The last of the 1916 Maul sugar at
Kahului was taken to the coast by the
Manoa, excepting 25 tons from the
Wailuku plantation. Sugar was load
ed both at Kaanapall and Kahului. Of
the cargo, 2213 tons were loaded at
at Kahului and 1473 more at Kaana
pall, cleaning up at the latter port all
awaiting shipment with the exception
of 500 tons consigned to Atlantic Coast
refineries. It will be probably be sent
to San Francisco later for transship

grounds, according to an unanimous
agreement reached by the fair execu
tie committee whichheld a meetving in
the Town Hall on last Monday after
noon. But it was not unanlmoous de
cision until the question of space and
housing for the exhibits had been thor
oughly thrashed out and the executive
committee had made a tour of inspec
tion to the grounds.
J. J. Walsh of the finance committee
had been urging for some time that
the county fair be assembled and ex
hibited in one locality, and not scatter
ed about Wailuku in half dozen diffe
rent buildings. His principal reason
for wanting the fair held collectively
was that then It would be possible to
secure more admittances fee, and be
still more attractive.
At first members of the committee
opposed holding the fair at the base
ball grounds because they did not
think that It was large enough. The
reply to this was that the Kuhio wharf

held, is not one-third as large as the

plan faded away.

BANKERS AID CATTLE INDUSRY
The part that banks can play In
promoting the local cattle industry la
Illustrated by the action taken recent
ly by a group of southern bankers. A
few farmers in Gibson County, Tenn.,
started a movement looking toward
diversification of crops by raising less
cotton and increasing the number and
quality of cattle. The movement was
encouraged by the beef-catt'e exten
sion agents of the State college and
the United States Department of Agri
culture. All the banks in the county
grew interested, and as soon the
group was ready to bring In a car of
pure-bred cattle the bankers agreed to
lend up to $15,000 to defray the cost.
Sixty-five head. Including bulls, bred
heifers, and cows with calves at foot,
were delivered in the county, all In
good condition, at an average cost of
$150 per head, exclusive of the calves.
These were distributed to individual
farmers, not more than three head
going to any farm. The owners then
cither paid for the cattle or gave long
time notes at reduced interest to the
banks. One bank acted as agent in
the transaction for all the banks in the
The bankers figured that by helping
the farmers to buy a large number of
pure-bred cattle they not only would
feet interest on safe loans but would
foster an industry the benefits of
which would be accumulative and per
manent in the locality. Ths is borne
out by frequent experiments which
have eHtablishcd that even a few good
bulls introduced In a county soon have
a marked influence on the size and
quality ot all loca" cuttle.
The Pa!a and the Hamakuapoko
stores will be closed during the an
nual stock taking on Saturday, Sept
ember 23, and Monday, September 25.

Sued For $10,000
Japanese Alleges That He Was Dam
aged To His Amount When He Was
Sentenced In District Court
Suit Filed In Honolulu
Through his attorney, Eugene Mur
phy, K. Akatsuka has filed suit for
$10,000 damages against District Judge
W. A. McKay. The suit Is based on
the charge that Judge McKay, "by rea
son of wanton, malicious and corrupt
actions" denied the plaintiff a trial on
the charge of having received stolen
goods. The quotation Is from the
plaintiff's allegations which were fil
ed in the first circuit court last week.
On May 7th of this year Paschoal
Gomes, a police officer, swore to a
complaint al'eging that Akatsuka had
received stolen goods which were tak
en from the Hawaiian Commercial &
Sugar Company. Upon this charge
the plaintiff in the damage BUit was
duly arraigned before Judge McKay.
After the complaint was interpreted
to Akatsuka, who is a Japanese, he

court judgement to the circuit court

JVlaui Delegates To
Have Fine Uniform
White Clothing And Ties And Sashes
Of Yellow And Black To Give Con
vention Delegation Distinction
Practising Island Songs
Delegates to the Fifth Civic Conven
tion from Maui are not to go as a
"nonendeBcript crew," as one of the
delegates said the Maui men had al
ways gone before. This decision was
reached at a meeting of the delegates
held last Wednesday. A uniform con
sisting of a white hat, a white shirt,
white trousers, white shoes and a tie
and sash of the Maui colors black
and yellow is to be worn by all. Be
sides the catchy uniform, the deleg
ation Is to have two or three songs
with which to entertain the other
delegates. The delegates are to meet
tonight at D. H. Cases' home to pract
ise the Bongs. Besides the twelve,
whose names were publishd last week,
T. B. Cameron and J. Patterson have
been given credentials.
The Bay View home at Kalaupapa,
Molokai settlement, was destroyed
completely by fire last Saturday after
noon and evening. All inmates,
eighty in number, were removed with
out one being Injured. In the destruc
tion of the house all furniture and per
sonal belongings of the inmates were
lost. No cause of the fire is known.
By hard work the I mates of the set
tlement succeeded in preventing the
spread of the fire to the new Bay View
home now being built near the old.
Three of the buildings of this home,
which wit! be on the cottage plan, can
be used now.
The home was used for the housing
of the old, blind and other helpless
patients unable to care for themselves.
It was a one-story building and was
about twelve or fourteen years old,

OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
INCITING TO CRIME
Suggestion Is a recognized factor in
the inception of crime. Because this
truth is well substantiated, a move
ment is afoot in some of the big cities
of the mainland to forbid the display
of firearms, dirks, knives and other
pocket weapons in show windows and
show cases. This is a class of merch
andise for which there Is a limited
legitimate trade, and an almost un
limited illegitimate one.
Many a murder would go uncom
mitted had not the "gun-toter" who
uses a revolver to settle a quarrel
been induced to buy a weapon through
suggestion. The advertising value of
show-window displays is well known
and absolutely legitimate if the goods
displayed for sale are not harmful to
morals or the public security. There
is no good reason why in this law
abiding community, any man, no mat
ter what his occupation, should carry
concealed weapons. Hence the force
of the argument that pocket artillery
would not be purchased in most cases
't it were not exposed openly for sale.
Maui was beaten at polo but not
disgraced. The Valley Isle quartet put
up one of the finest uphill games ever
seen on a local field fighting every
inch and every goal of the way. The
play throughout was as fast as two
Hawaii teams ever showed, which is
high praise indeed, for local audiences
are accustomed to the superlative in
speed. Star-Bullet in.

According to a newspaper story, the
National City Bank of New York, con
trolled by the Rockefeller and steel
trust group of American financiers, re
cently made flattering offers for the
controlling interest in Alexander &
Baldwin, Ltd., C. Brewer & Co., the
Honolulu Iron Works Company and
three or four ot the largest sugar
plantations in Hawaii. It is said a'.l
the offers were declined.
Which leads us to remark that all
hands seem to have a very good opin
ion of Hawaii's business, present and
future. Paradise of the Pacific.
The freight situation is growing
steadily worse instead of better. Out
going freights have been fairly well
attended to by the steamship people,
but incoming merchandise shipments
have been subjected to serious delay,
and a number of instances are report
ed where there has been deterioration
of goods left' on San Francisco
wharves month after month awaiting
available cargo space.
The war was to blame at first. Then
came the stoppage of the Canal, and
on top of that the longshoremen's
strike. But with all these exce'lent
reasons why conditions are as they
are, the fact remains that Hawaii
ought to own and operate a larger
proportion of the vessels required for
the Honolulu San Francisco run. ve
