THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1918.
Cause Of Delay Of
, The secretary of the Maui Auxili
ary of the American Red Cross has
received the following: letter explain
ing any delay that there may be in
the receipt of the Red Cross maga
zine by new members of the organiza
tion on Maui:
To the Chapter Secretary:
Red Cross magazines have invar).
ably been mailed from here to Christ
mas drive subscribers within ten days
after receipt of their names at this
And this has been done in spite of
the fact that nearly 450,000 names
have been received since January 1st.
Every list has had to be counted and
acknowledged to Chapter and to Divi
sion headquarters. Every name has
had to be stencilled, proof-read and
filed. The files have had to be ar
ranged alphabetically by post ofTlces.
Wrappers have been addressed, filled
with magazines and packed into mail
bags and delivered to the Post Office.
Four of the largest printing establish
ments in America have been manu
facturing the magazines day and
night. Probably no other magazine
has ever had such a task or such a
rapid growth in circulation from
240,000 last July to 1,300,000 now.
If, therefore, you have had from us
the form acknowledgement of receipt
of your lists, please do not write com
plaints concerning non-receipt of
magazines but bear in mind that the
magazine class of mail is terribly
congested all over the country, that
transportation facilities are poor and
in many cases it is taking weeks for
the Post Oflice and railroads to de
liver mail that is usually delivered in
a few days.
Your patience in this will be very
Verv sincerely yours,
THE RED CROSS MAGAZINE.

In The Fair Matter
Honolulu, March 6 Members of
the Hawaii Promotion Committee,
George H. Angus, chairman of the
territorial fair commission, Harold W.
Rice, fair commissioner for Maui and
possible H. P. Agee, fair commission
er for Oahu will journey by the
steamer Mauna Kea to Hilo, arriving
there Thursday morning, to visit the
Volcano and incidentally to meet the
Hilo Board of Trade. It is under
stood a special meeting of the Hilo
business men has been called for Fri
day, when questions of island promo
tion and matters concerning the ter
ritorial fair next June will be discussed.
A one-way freight rate which
amounts to a half-fare round trip rate
has been granted by all railways in
the islands for exhibits of all kinds
which are sent to the territorial fair,
June 10 to 15. The Inter-Island
Steam Navigation Company probably
will give the same rate from all points
in the islands to Honolulu, but first
must obtain the consent of the Feder
al Shipping Board.
To obtain this premission, Inter-Is-
land officials made formal application
to the Shipping Board on February
20, and expect a favorable reply from
Washington about March 15.
This is the news given out this
wpek by J. K. Butler, chairman of the
fair commission s committee on trans

bit of information received bv the
fair board and by farmers pnd live

Net cost of the main structures to
house exhibits at Aala Park has been
estimated by Jack Lucas, chairman
of the building committee, at $6939.
Gross cost will be about $11,000, but.
he figures salvage will amount to ap
proximately $4665. For the ultimate

bursed of course, by receipts from

pounds of sugar from Pincus Friedman, an East Side merchant. The sugar was sold to the needy ones at
cost. The store at which the sale took place was stormed by women who were provided with tickets
calling for a pound of the commodity. The photograph shows the fortunate individuals in line waiting for
