Fishing Party Of Maui
Makes Thrilling Rescue
Finds Schooner Churchill On French Frigate Shoals
Just In Time To Save Master And Crew
Pleasure Excursion Has Most Unusual Climax
All Return Safely
Harold W. Rice, of Maul, and the
sampan Makaiwa, belonging to the
Kahulul Railway Co., returned to Ho
nolulu last Tuesday morning, complet
ing a most .fortunate rescue of a ship's
crew from the treacherous vicinity of
the French Frigate Shoals, to the
northwest of the island of Kauai.
The party rescued consisted of the
master, his two sons, three officers
and six sailors of the American four
masted schooner Churchill, of San
Francisco, 600 tons net, which was
on her way back from Nukualofa, in
the Friendly Islands, with a cargo of
copra for Seattle.
The Makaiwa left Honolulu Octo
ber 22, having on board the following:
Harold V. Rice, as master; Lieut.
F. E. Ferris, formerly captain of the
Kestrel and now of the navy; Arthur
Rice, brother of the "skipper;" H. L.
Tucker; Win, Feurpeil, crew captain;
Johnny Vasconcellos, engineer; Man
uel de Tonte, second engineer; Levi
Faufata, Somoan seamen; and Japa
nese crew. The party fished on the
way over to Kauai, where they landed
Arthur Rice, and then proceeded to
Bird Island, to the northwest. It was
so rough there that the voyage was
continued on to Neckar Island, where
better conditions and better fishing

Business Meeting Of
Maui A. A. Officers
Two Challenges Considered But Local
Athletes Are Unable To
A meeting of the sports committe
of the Maui Athletic Association was
held at the Dank of Maui, Ltd., Wed
nesday evening, those present being:
R. A. Wadsworth, chairman; J. Gar
cia, secretary; James T. Fantom,
Car sou and George H. Cummings.
A letter was received from the
Coast Defense baseball team, of Ho
nolulu, challenging for a series of
games here to begin November 17,
Maui to pay all expenses and to divide
the residue 60 40, winner and loser.
The challenge was not favorably con
sidered, for the ftest reason that most
of Maui's best players will at that
time be in the National Guard camp
on Oahu, and second, that without
thorn and a promise of good baseball
the locals would likely be out of
pocket from such a series.

Draft Board Enters
Upon Its Busy Season
The draft board, of which Sheriff
Crowell is the head, will have its
hands full in the next few days pos
sibly for a week. Preparation has
been made so that work is progress
ing rapidly and will continue to do
so, but in order to keep up the proper
amount of steam it will doubtless be
a case of day and night work for some
time. An effort will be made to get notices
drawn to all draftees by Saturday, in
structing them to appear for examina
tion. They will appear at places to be
It is the intention of the board to
visit outside places, such as liana,
Molokai, etc., first. The examinatous
for Wailuku, Paia, Makawao, Kula,
etc., will be made in the sheriff's
office at Wailuku, and, if there are
not too many, the Lahaina draftees
will also probably be brought over

dangerous French Frigate Shoals.
Soon after the Churchill was sighled
and approached, when Rico discover
ed that she was in a perilous position.
When the captain of the schooner
could be hailed he said that his ves
sel was filling rapidly. The sampan's
boat was put over the side and the
men on the wrecked schooner taken
aboard. It was found that a portion
of the crew was missing, having gone
off in a small boat to land supplies
and the two boys on French Frigate
rock and had failed to return.
The sampan started on the search
for the missing boat and found it that
afternoon, taking the men aboard.
The craft had been driven by the
wind from her objective to the open
After getting all hands aboard, the
sampan set out for Honolulu again,
arriving as above stated.
Mr. R'co returned home by the Ki
lauea Wednesday night and Thursday
morning the Makaiwa reached Kahu

eighty very excellent pictures of the
wrecked Churchill, the crew and
scenes around the French Frigate
Shoals and the islands visited.

perfect weather conditions assisted in

of automobiles parked on the grounds
of the new 11. I'. Baldwin Memorial

Burglar Is Busy
House Of Farnsworth, The Winery
Office And A Japanese Place
Three houses at Kaupakalua and
Kokomo were entered and burglarized
sometime Monday night, about $52 in
cash and some small articles being
One of the places entered was the
home of George Farnsworth. Mr.
Farnsworth went out early in the
evening and it was while he was still
away that his place was burglarized.
The intruder broke a large pane of
glass in one of the windows with a
bottle and climbed through. Only a
searchlight and two pairs of eye
glasses were stolen, although there
were many other things of value in
the room. Footprints showed that
the burglar was barefooted.
Entrance to the Kaupakalua winery
was effected with a skeleton key
through the back door. Three holes
were bored in a drawer of a letter de
pository, but no other damage to the
cabinet was done. The cash register
was taken outside, however, where
the thief pressed on 90 cents and
opened it. Six dollars and some tmall
change were taken.
At Kokomo the house of a Japanese
was entered and ?46 taken from the
pockets of the occupant.
The police are working on the case,
but as yet have not made any arrest.
Love Episode Only
An affair of much interest in the
Korean part of the community has
taken place in the Waiakoa neighbor
hood. It seems that a man named Yen Wo
Hun, living at the Waiakoa camp, had
been calling upon Kin Yung Kee, a
girl of 16. The father of the girl ob
jected to a marriage. Last Tuesday
night, therefore, Yen Wo Hun took
the girl away and left her at the
teachers' cottage in Camp 1, telling
her to stay there until the matter
could be settled satisfactorily all
The father remained obdurate, how
ever, and the sheriff was appealed to.
Mr. Crowell talked to the girl, telling
her what the law was, and she finally
decided to return to her father.
Thus ended the first chapter.
An Assault Case
On Monday two laborers got into
a dispute at Kokomo and one, Mamiel
Morreira is alleged to have hit a Porto
Kican named Leopoldo on the arm,
hurting him quite badly. The former
was arrested and will be tried during

ment, will leave here a week from to

END UP ON
Individuals of Maul, to the number
of SOI, took $97,400 of Liberty Loan
bonds in the campaign which closed
last Friday night, not including
amounts subscribed through Honolulu
banks and agencies by Maui people. In
addition to this, Maui plantations and
other corporations took bonds to an
amount close to 11,500,000, bringing
Maul's total slightly above a million
Of the individual subscriptions
taken by the banks, the Baldwin Na
tional received a total of $17,750,
wh'ch included individuals of Hawaii
an Commercial and the Haiku can
nery. The Bank of Maui, Ltd., took
in ?o3,8UO, which, it is understood,
did not include subscriptions from
any plantation employees, the latter
going direct to Honolulu.
Considering the fact that the Boy
Scouts started in at the eleventh
hour, they did fine work secur
ing in subscriptions $1800 at Lahaina,
$12iiij in Wailuku and further amounts
The Bank of Maui, Ltd., introduced
an innovation in ottering to carry
subscribers, at 5 percent., for a reason

the idea not being to make money
but to help along the good cause.

In the Circuit Court on Monday a
jury found Sam Kaleo guilty of as
sault and battery on one Tarn Wong
and the court sentenced the young
man to pay a fine of $10 and costs or
go to jail until the penalty was satis
lied. The case came from Makawao.
It appears that Kaleo was in love
with the daughter of Wong, and
planned to run away with her and get
married. The old man was alert,
however, and tried to check the elope
ment but was struck by the would-be
son-iu-law and, it is claimed, knocked
down and out. Kaleo got away, how
ever, and soon the fair damsel was his
Wong brooded over the affair and
finally decided to have the young man
arrested for the assault, and then bo
gan the course of the case through
the courts, concluding as above staled.

Supervisors will be held next Wednes
day morning for the approval of bills
and the transealion of other business.

Pacific Coast Port Mcgeta, head of the Japanese commercial mis

characterizes as an "insignificant part of the war."
ITALIAN SITUATION ENCOURAGING
Washington Official despatches from Rome are reassuring. They
say that the Italian situation is serious but far from desperate, for the
Allies have recovered from their first surprise and are prepared to op

been weakened and his army is practically intact. Over 3,000,000 men
are under arms. The captured guns are neglible.

essential to war. Homes will be supplied first.
