County Auditor " . Acox says there is about $40,000 -ill due of the first installment. 'I?efore the arrival of the mail from jnolulu yesterday County officials were growing anxious about Maui's tax moneys. Honolulu City and Coun ty had received an allotment from the Territory nearly three weeks ago and w.,y Mauils had not come was the won y ing question. As yet it has not been explained why Maui had to wait so long after a payment and had been made to Honolulu, but there is a feel ing of relief that at last a payment has arrived.. This county and Honolulu are in the best shape of the counties of the Ter ritory this year. Kauai is short and r Hawaii is trying to get along with more than $100,000 less than it thinks it needs. This county started retrench ment last year and so entered upon a "lean year" the better prepared. There are some persons presumably well posted on financial conditions who ex- ' pect to see Maui with a lower tax rate i next year than this. ' Had it not been for the special tax for hospitals and sanitarium in this . comity the officials would have had a much more difficult time than they have had in making ends meet, and even at best their problem has not m UccU till J caojr wi" rx. . 1 r. u Dinner to juage u. n.

'Make Happy' Will Be Red Letter Event Foresters Will Crowd Three Days and Nights with Fun, Sport and Jollity; Plans are Workel Out. Near at hand for Maui people is the biggest show and the best fun of its kind ever offered on this Island. There is a great three day program arranged and "Make Happy" rS going to estab lish a record for itself and for Maui Foresters. So says J. Garcia, execu tive secretary of the Foresters' "Make Happy" committee. He adds that ev erything is going forward in a thor oughly satisfactory manner and the af fair is in an excellent stage of pre paredness at this ctage. "Entries for the races are coming in well from at home and from the other Islands," says Garcia. "The program was prepared several weeks ago and the list of events with the purses offered was sent out generally to horse owners. It awakened inter terest at once and we feel we can promise a splendid three day racing card, one that will rank with the best Fourth of July race meets Maui ha3 known. "There'll be some great baseball, too," he continued. "It will be an inter-court tournament and some of the best players in the Territory are For esters. As yet we have no report from Hilo on baseball but Kauai will have a strong team and we expect two from Honolulu besides our own nine. So the interest of the fans has been looked after. "The Japanese wrestling champion ships are awakening from all the other Islands and this Island has two or three that will make a great showing for the home Japanese community. I doubt if there has ever been offered a better array of Inter-island mat talent than will be seen at 'Make Happy". "Eddie Fernandez is arranging for the shows and similar attractions that go to make up an important part of any carnival of the kind we shall of fer. He reports that he has coming several newly imported shows in ad dition to the selection of the best, features of the recent "Merry Way" which drew Honolulu crowds. We are expecting him over from Honolulu any day now. "Every night there will be put on an entertainment program by a differ ent court on two nights and by the Companions one evening. And there will be the dancing and oh, what's the use of telling any more that we are going to have? The public will want to come and see it anyhow and if they attend the first day they'll want to come back every afternoon and evening. "As for the attendance from the out side, it is going to be big. Maui hos pitality has made its reputation throughout the Islands and the reser vations made with the steamship com pany show that we shall have all the visitors from Oahu and Kauai that the steamers can carry. "Yes, "Make Happy' is coming on big." Eddie Tam at Baldwin Bank, Kahu lul, reports sale of reserved seats go ing Strong and requests Maui people to make reservations early to assure securing good seats. Bowman to be Missed In Vocation Training R. C. Bowman, director of voca tional training on Maul will close ten years of service on this Island with in a few days and will go to the mainland. He has accepted the posi tion of director of shop work in the high schools of Okmulgee, Oklahoma. Mrs. Bowman is now in Oklahoma The department of public instruction of Hawaii will lose one of its most efficient men and Maui loses a valu able member of its community. Eleven years ago R. C. Bowman be gan teaching on Maul at Lahainaluna. He left that institution to take up the industrial work in the public schools and when the position of di rector of vocational training was ereated, he filled it for Maui. Three years ago he went to the mainland and was gone for a year but returned for the opening of school in the fall of 1920. Last summer Bowman taught in the summer training school in Hono lulu and was asked to do so again this year and might have done bo had he not decided to make the change, one of his moving influences for going being that Mrs. Bowman's health is better on the mainland than in the Islands. During his connection with the de partment of public instruction he is one of those who have worked for a systematized course of vocational training such as now has been map ped out and put into operation. He has been of valuable assistance in the contests for schools and home garden work and wag instrumental in starting the children's agricultural ex hibit this spring. No f.uccessor to Mr. Bowoisu baa been rrade but it is reported that there are at least throe applicants for the petition. It was learned this morning that Mr. Bowman will leave on the Wil helmina Monday night. Maui Plantations Lead In Grinding Wailuku and Pioneer Will Be First to End 1922 Campaign And Puunene Is Close After Them. Two Maul plantations are coming down the stretch almost neck and neck in the 1922 campaign with an other Maui plantation third in the grinding and the other sugar com panies of the Islands "back in the ruck." Wailuku holds the lead and Tioneer is almost alongside while ruunene is reported as coming fast but about three weeks behind. Wailuku Sugar Company hopes to finish its grind by Wednesday, June 28 and certainly by the last day of the month, unless something untoward shall arise to prevent. Reports from the Tioneer Mill Company yesterday said it was hoped to finish grinding in the big Lahaina mill by the end of the month, certainly before the Fourth of July. Puunene office said the biggest sugar plantation of the Is lands expected to shut down the mill by July 20. Wailuku mill's outturn will prob ably not vary 50 tons from Manager Penhallow's earlier estimate. It may be few tons above or below the figures he gave but the cane produc tion of the plantation is away above estimates, some 7000 tons of cane up to yesterday. Early cut cane was very low in sucrose content but the later cut. has yielded well and brought up the average. Reports from Lahaina say that im proved Bugar content there have brought production to something like a thousand tons above estimates, or will have done so when the shut down comes. It is highly gratifying to see mills getting back to the normal time for campaign ending in spite of labor shortage' but it has been accomplished only by reducing acreage cultivated, at least in the case of Wailuku. Man ager Penhallow felt there was no use in undertaking cultivation of more land than could be handled. Near Malaaea 160 acres were abandoned for the time and altogether about 250. As a result better results were secur ed for the cultivated fields and it will be possible to go on with the new plant instead of experiencing delayn such as had to be born last year. Even with those delays, however, it is re ported that the late planted fields of last year are looking fine owing to sutllciency of moisture and good grow ing conditions. Puunene is also far ahead of its last year finishing time. Five Get Diplomas When Lahainaluna Holds Exercises Commencement exercises of Lahai naluna School were held at the school yesterday afternoon and were largely attended. An excellently ar ranged program was rendered, the ad dress of Dr. Dean of the University of Hawaii, being especially fine. S. E. Kalama was unable to attend and Sheriff Clement C.

"Sunny Jim" Now Heads Shriners Honolulu Man Chosen Imper ial Potentate; San Francisco Is In Gayest Attire for great Conclave. (ASSOCIATED l'RESS) SAN FRANCISCO, June 15 "Sun ny Jim" McCandless the formally elected Imperial Potentate or the Shrine, behind Islam which led, head ed last night's parade in the magni ficently decorated and illuminated equipage ol' the Aloha patrol. Aloha again received ovations along the line of the huge parade which was 80 minutes in passing Third and Mar ket streets. San Francisco papers feature the McCandless smile, one paper present ing his "Sunny" countenance in three characteristic degrees of illumination, across the front page. Welcoming Statement McCandless welcoming the Shriners said, "All Shrinedom is all smiles to day. Welcomed with a warmth and cordiality that is characteristic, San Francisco is giving the nobles the best of times. Speaking for my brother nobles I congratulate San Francisco on its hospitality and its welcome. The reputation or the city that "Knows How" has been sustained. McCandless yesterday announced that while it was the custom of Im perial 1'otenlates to make headquar ters in their home towns, he would make his headquarters in San Fran cisco. He thanked the convention in behalf of the Aloha Temple and him self for the honor conferred. McCand less complimented the Islam Temple of San Francisco on its hospitality and said he considered his election a great compliment to Aloha which is the only temple off of mainland North Ameri ca. He trusted the harmony which has always surrounded the work of the order would continue during his term. Features Offered Duke Kahanamoku gave a flashy ex hibition at the shrine swimming meet at Sutro Baths. Duke swam the hun dred and the fifty untimed. The Examiner's broadcasting sta tion will furnish concerts for Shriners aboard the steamers Nile, II. Jf. Alex ander, and Matsonia, on Friday and Saturday evenings. All vessels are equipped with radiophone receivers and large amplifiers in saloons, din ing rooms and on their decks. Al Malaika Temple of Los Angeles took high score in the first round of the Shrine trap shoot, breaking 239 out of a possible 250. Korek Temple of Reno broke 225 and Aloha 135. McCandless led the pageant in a flower banked automobile followed by a float representing Kilauea erupting. Among other floats were "King Solo mon," described as the first grand master, the "Boston Tea Party," des cribed as an adjourned masonic meet ting, "Templars Defending the Holy Sepulchre," Washington as grand mas ter of Alexandria lodge and Lafayette delivering the apron to Washington. Islam Temple presented McCand less with a gold plate. -tj- Gratitude Downfall Of Poor Old Chinese Gratitude was the cause of the un doing of Fong She Ashe, he told Ma gistrate Harry Mossman in the Wai luku district court yesterday. He has gone to jail for a hundred days he cause of it, if his story is to be be lieved. Fong was arrested with a gallon of "oke" in his possession while walking along a highway. He was charged with transporting liquor and he plead ed guilty to the charge. The prosecu tion said it had information that al though never before arrested he is a habitual carrier of the contraband. But Fong tells a different story in answer to the magistrate's questions. He says he worked for the plantation until taken sick some six months ago. The plantation paid him $15 a month for three months and then told him to return to work. He says the doctor told him he was all right and able to work but he did not agree with the doctor. But "when a feller needs a friend" he sometimes finds one and Fong Bays another Chinese gave him provisions in his days of need. Wednesday, so Fong said, yet an other friend made him a present of a gallon of oke. Forthwith gratitude welled up out of his heart to the friend in need who had fed him. He would repay the bread of kindness with the oke of thanks and he started off to make a gift of his liquid prize. But here the law stepped in and he was arrested by an officious police officer. Such are the rewards of gratitude. NEW WAGE CUT (ASSOCIATED PRESS) CHICAGO, June 16.

Acting Attorney General W. L.

Representative Bankhead Introduced an amendment to the merchant ma rine bill, cutting off government aid -s Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar Company will resume the payment of dividends next month. Private advices received yesterday said the directors of the company, meeting in San Francisco had voted to re sume dividend payments and for the payment of ten cents a share a month beginning on July 1. In local financial circles this news is greeted as the most cheer ing that has come since the slump in sugar prices ended and .idv.ir,ces began to be recorded. It is looked upon as the fore-runner of similar announcements from other com panies though Puunene is admitted ly in one of the strongest posi tions of any of the sugar companies of the Islands. It is reported from Lahaina that Pioneer Mill Company is earning profits when sugar is in the vicini ty of 4 1-2 cents and if these com panies can earn at prcies now pre vailing It is thought other com panies will be putting figures on the right side of the books.
