THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 1917.
FIVE Mr. Know-It-All Tells About Maui Hawaii Paper Gives Amusing Account Of Effort Of Honolulu Man To Give Information To Strangers "It is funny to hear some of , the dope handed out by people who think because they have made the trip to Hilo once or twice and spent all the time playing cards, that they know everything and are capable of telling tourists all about the Islands that are passed on route and other matters," said a returning Hiloite the other day after he had disembarked from the Maunaa Kea. "Yes, sir," he continued, "it Is won derful the amount of misinformation that can be peddled out by some peo ple. I was on the Mauna Kea from Honolulu to Hilo the other day and wh'le sitting on deck and watching Oahu receding In the distance as we made our way across the channel, I heard a man telling three tourist all about the trip to Hilo. He pointed at Molokai, which was becoming more apparent every minute, and declared that island to be Maui. He said that as soon as we got close enough he would point out the ancient capital of the Hawaiian Islands and also show the visitors the "Lahaina Sugar Com pany's mill." He talked of the road around Maui and said that from the steamer the tourists would soon be able to see the road as it wound ar ound the cliffs. "Well, the steamer plunged ahead and Molokai became more distinct to view. The much traveled one became even more talkative and described the "Punii Mill" which, he said, laid Just behind the mountains which were in view and which was the largest mill In the world. He spoke of Hiau Needle, which was also located on tho Island he was po.nting al. "After a few hours steaming, the good ship Mauna Kea got close onto Molokai and, a little later on, began to skirt the coast of that barren look ing Island. The visitors began to ply the pundit with quiries as to when they would be able to see the wonder ful sights he had told them about. Something seemed to have gone wrong with the selfappointed guide and his face was a study. When an other man came along and remarked casually: 'Well, old Molokai looks the same as usual. It won't be long now till we begin to cross the cannel to Maui.' The descriptive artists faded away In the direction of the lounging room the evidently wanted to take a peep at a folder which carried a map of the Hawaiian islands. The people on deck were put straight about the group and they all three seemed to have some-thing on their minds pos sibly, it related to the bunco guide."

On The Other Islands Tourist Makes Heavy Investment F. W. Macfarlane last week sold to R. 8. Van Tassell, a wealthy Wyoming cattle man, 80,000 square feet of land on Bishop street, Honolulu, for $210, 000 cash. The property is on the Wal kiki side of the H. Hackfeld & Com pany, building. Van Tassall closed the deal a few minutes before sailing for the coast. He is a tourist and bought the property as an investment. Easterners Cancel Bookings The Great Northern arrived at Ho nolul on Monday 'with a total of 314 passengers. . The big vessel canceled about 200 bookings of easterners who backed out at the last minute on ac count of the war Bcare. Westerners apparently had no fears for there were few cancellations of those living west of the Rockies. All steamer lines are reporting a similar condition since the break with Germany occured. Lurllne Taking Tow To Coast The Lurline is towing the Matson steamer Enterprise to the coast this trip, the latter having broken her tail shaft. As a result all but about ten of the Lurllne's passengers canceled their bookings in Honolulu for the reason that the trip is expected to take ten days or more. Mis Fairchlld Is Carnival Queen Miss Mela Fairchild, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George F. Fairchild, of Ma nila, formerly of Kauai, was chosen queen of the recent Philippine carni val by a popular vot e of over a million. Reports from Manila are that the fair Hawaiian maid made a great hit. Tourist Says Rates Are High "Jimmie" Jump, the noted South ern California game fisherman, has a kick coming about the rates tne inter Island Company charges for transport ing automobiles between ports. He says tourists would spend much more time (and money) in the territory rnnid thpv tret their cars away from the bumpy roads of Oabu to the good roads of Maui, Kauai and Hawaii.

RECOMMENDATIONS Based on its experience of the past year and a half, this Board believes that a number of changes might well be made in Act 221, S. L. 1915, in the interests of ecquity. It therefore sub mits the following recommendations with the suggestion that the same be brought to the attention of the Legis lature: (1) Section 9 Period of Compen sation Should be amended so as to cover entire period of dependency. (2) Section 12 Medical Attend ance No limit of time for supplying necessary surgical, medicaL. or hos pital treatment should be imposed, and the amount of such service should be increased from a maximum of $50. 00 to a meximum of $150.00. (3) Section 13 and 14 Waiting Period Seven days, instead of 14 days should be the period following injury No. 8101.

N. LUFKIN, Cashier of the above named bank, do solemnly swear that the above statement Is true to tho best of my knowledge and belief. F. N. LUFKIN, Cashier. Correct Attest: R. A. WADSWORTH. J. GARCIA, D. H. CASE, Subscribed and sworn to before me during which no compensation is paid. (4) Section 14 Partial Disability, Loss of one eye is not Included as a partial disability, but should be so re cognized. We have had one or two cases of this kind in which only the surgical fees were borne by the empl oyer. Under the law this might have been limited to $50.00, with no com pensation for first 14 days. (5) Section 49 Insurance (a) The need of a uniform form of insur ance policy has been very evident to this Board. We therefore strongly re commend that every insurance com pany authorized to write compensa tion insurance in the Territory, be re quired to adopt a form of policy to be prescribed in this Act, or by the In-. dustrial Accident Boards together, or by a Board to be created. (b) This board has always believ ed that serious injustice is done to small employers by the practice of the Insurance companies of requiring a minimum fee of $10.00 for writing a policy. We further believe that if such minimum is to be fixed, it should not amount to more than $5.00. (c) Because of the limited field for compensation insurance in this Ter ritory, and the consequent more or less indifference on part of insurance companies to this class of insurance, the board feels that the rates are per haps not equitable or as low as con sistent with good business methods. We therefore recommend that a Territorial Insurance Fund be estab lished, to be administered under direc tion of the Territorial Treasurer or of the Accident Board, upon the same principles, and upon the same general requirements as those governing Mu tual Insurance Associations. Wo do not recommend, however, that such Territorial Insurance Fund be made to exclude approved insurance stock or mutual companies from doing business in. the Territory. (6) Accident Board We believe that our experience has Bhown the desirability of making a single Board responsible for the administration of the Workmen's Compensation Law throughout the Territory instead of separate boards for each County. At present four boards work without co ordination or even knowledge of each other's activities. A single Board or Commission of say five members, should administer the law for the Ter ritory and at the same time the Ter ritorial Insurance Fund to be estab lished. The Board should Joe given authority to employ such clerical as sistance on the several Islands as nec essary. It should be required to hold hearings on the Islands on which ac cidents occur, whenever occasion for such hearings arise. Respectfully submitted, 1 W. A. McKAY, Chairman WILL. J.
