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.

SUGAR CONSUMPTION

The people of the United States are
apparently using more sugar than
ever before, for the increase in con
sumption has been greater than the in
crease in population. According to

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.

(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.
