t . . ..-
Treacherous Air Current Turns Stod
dard Machine Over After Landing
Had Been Made Slight Damage
No One Hurt.
Caught by a freak gust of wind just
as It was reaching tho ground on re
turning from a Might, the Curtis air
plane of the Stoddard Aviation Co.,
which has been making lllghts on
Maui for the past two weeks, turned
completely over at the county fair
park about 3 o'clock Wednesday after
noon. Fortunately neither Pilot C. J.
Fern nor his passenger, a Japanese
named Yamatoshi, was injured, and
the machine was not seriously damag
ed. Tho airplane had touched tho
ground once, and as it bounced up
ward tho strong eddy of wind caught
it and flipped It over so quickly that
those who witnessed the accident
scarce realized what was happening.
The front part of the machine and
the tall rudder held the body of the
car up preventing tho occupants from
being crushed. The heavy web belts
also prevented their falling out so
that they hung head downward lot
a few moments until they were able
to extricate themselves.
Tho Japanese passenger appeared
greatly gratified with the unusual
feature of his landing, seemingly feel
ing that he had had somo added thrills
thrown in gratis, and he paid his $10
for his ride in the greatest good hu
mor. The airplane sustained a broken
propeller, a broken rudder, and some
other minor damage, none of which
is serious, according to Mr. Fern.

Mission, headed by Genoral Harbord,
on Its return to the United States.

port still remains unpublished, despite
tho fact that the Senate has twice re
quested President Wilson to transmit
a copy to it.
It is reported that some Senators
knew of the mandatory recommenda
tions, and it is to that fact that they
attribute the President's silence.

after tho Mission had returned there,
said that the members wero sharply
divided on the mandate question, the
military members opposing and civil
ians supporting tho recommendations.

Maui Makes Good In
Cornell Track Meet
High Schools Win Laurels Under
Heavy Handicap Tavarcs First
In Broad Jump Enthusiastic For
Maul High School invaded interscho
lastic athletlA last Saturday in Hono
lulu. For the first time in its history
Maui High entered a track team in the
Cornell games and carried away points
in three out of tho five events which
it entered. Considering that Maui's
team consisted of but six men as com
pared to the thirty or forty-man teams
of the Honolulu schools, and that
those six spent tho night before tho
meet in the steerage of the good ship
Mauna Kea, the school is to be con
gratulated upon its showing.
Those who made tho trip were Nils
Tavares, Jack Walker, Arthur Bald
win, Shigi Hangai, Soveth Boyum,
Sterling Hebert and Mr. MacCaughey.
The boys spent most of tho night
"I'm going to keep my dinner down
Maui no ka oe.
I do not want my lunch to drown
Maui no ka oe."
Unfortunately some of them were
unable to keep their promise.
Officials and friends of sport In
Honolulu took a real interest in the
welfare of tho team and gave the hoys
every consideration. The team has
been invited to come down on a Wed
nesday next year so that the boys will
have two days to recuperate from the
trip and get used to tho track on
which tho meet is run.
Events, places and points taken last
Saturday are as follows:
Broad jump, first place, Nils Tavar
es, 5 p6int-s; Medley relay, 0; 220-yard
hurdles, fourth placo,- Jack Walker, 1
point; 100-yard dash, 0; high jump,
fourth place, Seveth Boyum, 1 point.
Tho trip, which was more or less of
an experiment, has shown first that
Maul High school is able to hold a
real place in interscholastic athletics;
second, that we must have a real ath
letic field with a cinder track or
"scalped" track properly graded and
drained. Without this we cannot hope
to compete on Honolulu tracks.

Grounds Now Aim
Women Confer With Supervisors
Are Told County Cannot Help
Fleming Says Men and Newspa
pers of Tovrn Lack Public Spirit.
"The men of Wailuku will do
nothing and the newspapers will do
less. Perhaps the women may be
able to do something towards arous
ing public sentiment in the commun
ity." Supervisor D. T. Fleming made this
statement hist Friday afternoon in tho
course of tho conference which the
supervisors had with a committee of
the Maul Woman's Club in connection
with tho matter of the unsightly group
of cottages being constructed adjac
ent to tho Malulanl hospital property.
Mr. Fie Tng stated that ho had de
clared that if tho people of Wailuku
are so lacking in civic pride that they
will permit such structures to be
built, lie was through with Wailuku;
and furthermore that ho would op
pose on general principles anything
that Wailuku should ask for In the
This statement caused a slight
flutter on the part of the ladies of
the committee and Mr. Fleming am
ended to the extent of making an ex
ception in favor of tho Wailuku la
dies. In the committee which waited upon
the board were Mrs. David Fleming,
Mrs. E. R. Bevins, Mrs. F. F. Baldwin,
Mrs. II. D. Sloggett, and Mrs. Mur
phy.. Mrs. Fleming was tho chief
spokesman and much of the confer
ence was in the nature of interroga
tions of the board on points which
the women wish to have cleared up.
In reply to a direct question Chair
man Kalama stated that he had per
sonally understood H. B. Penhallow,
manager of tho Wailuku Sugar Co.,
to have promised that the land in
question would be given to the county
for hospital purposes at a nominal
Mrs. Fleming stated that tho com
mittee had Interviewed Mr. Pen
hallow, who had explained the leaso
extension to the Bank of Maui, "satis
factorily to himself." It had also had
a conference with C. D. Lufkln, rep
resenting the bank, and had been told
that the property had been sub-leased
to a Japanese named Sato, who was
building tho cottages objected to, and
that the bank could not revoke tho
NO HELP FROM COUNTY
The committee wanted to know why
tho county could not condemn tho land
as a part of tho hospital site or as a
park, and Mr. Fleming answered., that
tho county Is not in shape to buy the
property at present, though this was
a part of tho plan for future exten
sion. He stated that Mr. Lufkln had
offered to turn over the bank's lease
to tho county at the same figuro he
had negotiated with Sato, but that ho
considered tho offer in nature of an
ultimatum "a demand for tho pound
of flesh", and he, for one hadn't pro
posed to be held up. It is a favorito
practice, ho added, to try to hold up
tho county but he didn't propose to
bo a party to it when he could help
PUBLIC SENTIMENT ONLY HOPE
Fleming declared that public senti
ment could remove tho eyesore, and
nothing else sinco there was no legal
way of getting at tho matter. It was
in this connection that he. made tho
statement previously quoted concern
ing the lack of public spirit among tho
men and newspapers of Wailuku. Ho
stated that he had personally inter-'
viewed numbers of different Wailuku
men and the newspapers on tho sub
ject without being able to arouse any
WOULD BUY PROPERTY
Aside from arguing in favor of tho
county's condemning tho property,
nothing further came of the confer
ence which closed shortly aftor. It
is reported that the Woman's Club Is
considering the practicability of rais

ficent to buy tho leasehold of tho Jap

Parents Not Guilty
Of Kidnapping Girl
Jury Finds That Sano Malsuura Was
Not Abducted From Husband's
Home. Was Long Time Agreeing
After occupying a full week In the
2nd circuit court, tho Japanese kid
napping case, which has attracted a
good deal of attention locally, came
to an end late last Tuesday afternoon
when tho jury brought In a verdict of
acquittal. Tlie jury had been given
tho case at 11:20 a. m but it was
nearly 5:30 p. m. before it could agree.
It is reported that a majority of the
12 was in favor of conviction at first
but was won over by the minority.
The charge of the grand-jury was
against F. Hirobara, Sanzo Taguchi,
Sakichl Taguchi and Mrs. Sai Taguchi,
who were charged with having ab
ducted Sano Matsuura from her hus
band's home and taken her by force
back to the home of her parents. Tlie
Malsuura woman was a Taguchi girl
who had married a Kokomo auto
mobile driver without her parents'
consent. She disappeared from her
new homo during her husband's ab
sence one day and it was alleged had
been forcibly removed by her parents
nnd their friends.
The testimony of a large number of
witnesses was contradictory. Tlie
girl herself testified that she had left
her husband of her own accord, but
the contention of die prosecution was
j that she was forced to take this course
to shield her parents who would pos
sibly have been sent to jail had they
