SEMI-WEEKLY MAUI ' f EW3, FRIDAY. AUGUST 18, 1922. PRICE 5 CENTS Prison Sentence In Prohibition Case May Result Arrest After Previous Plea Of Guilty Brings Up Point In Magistrate's Court At Ma-kawao In the Makawao magistrate's court before Magistrate M. S. Pacheco this morning there is being held a hear ing In charges under the prohibition law which may result in the holding of the prisoner for the grand jury in an effect to secure a penotentiary sentence on the grounds that the charges constitute a second offense. This la the first time that. Issue has been raised on Maui. At 10:30 the hearing was In progress and it was considered doubtful if it would be ended today. K. Kitihara, Japanese care taker on the McPhee homestead, was arested by Federal Prohibition Enforcement Officer Crabbe for the second time on Wednesday afternoon, charged with illicit manufacture of liquor. On the former occasion he pleaded guilty and was fined. Officer Crabbe received information that Kitihara was again manufactur ing liquor, he says, and started to in vestigate. He says that he met the Japanese in Makawao and told him he waiUed to look over his place again that he heard he was making liquor. The man got into the car with him and went to the homestead up the mountain. Crabbe said he found about 300 gallons of "rice wine" or "swipes," five gallons of okolehao and a lot of mash. He added that the Japanese Inquired how much it would cost him this time. Crabbe said that as It was an ar rest for a second offense he would ask that Kitihara be held for action by the grand jury, the first time such action would have been taken on Maui. Eugene Murphy is attorney for Ki tihara and Indicated he would object to the admission of the- stuff seized as evidence on the ground of Illegal search and seizure alleging that Crabbe had no search warrant. That point, has been decided by Magistrate Mossman in Walluku but not by Magis 'trate Pacheco in Makawao. The Wal luku decision is against admlssability of such evidence where seized by a federal officer. Deputy County Attorney Crockett, Officer Crabbe and Attorney Murphy went up to Makawao this morning on the case. Two Cases Dismissed W. Saiki, arrested for a second time the first case against him having been nolle prossed and a Japanese woman whose first name is Tama were in the Wailuku magistrate's court Wednes day, both accused of having liquor in possession. There were Indications that the prisoners were making "rice wine" or "swipes" but the stuff was too young to bring a conviction, lack ing the necessary alcoholic content and there was not proof of such con tent, so the case against the man was dismissed and that against the woman was nolle prossed.

Liberty House Will Bring Monday Special Sale To Maui Buyers It Is out of the question for Maui customers of the Liberty House to run over to Honolulu to take advan tage of the Monday Special Sales the store offers. Even were it not for the expense, the time and the trouble of the trip the announcements of the bargains that are to be offered come to Maui too late to take a steamer and so Valley Islanders have grown to feel that such Monday Specials were speci al for Honolulans only. This the Lib erty House has recognized and since Mauiites could not come to the M (in day Sale, the store brings a Monday Sale to Maui, as Is told in the page advertisement which appears in this issue of Maul News. Mrs. Marion Drake has been often enough on Maui as head of the mail order department of the big Honolulu concern to make many friends. She will be in charge of the sale on Mon day. During her visits here she has demonstrated that the Liberty Mouse sends the same goods away from Ho nolulu that it offers to home custom ers, does not "unload" them on the other Islands and the advertisement says that most or the articles that are to be offered here Monday are so offer ed for the first time, before having been shown in Honolulu. v The prices named in the advertise ment certainly look attractive and the name Liberty House is a guaranty of style and quality.

It also appears that the dates mentions) in tlm lcitr of Will J. Coulter which called for the party oeing on Maui September 17. still stand although an effort is be ing made to Hilo to have changes made in the itinerary so that the party would reach Honolulu instead of the Big Island on Friday September 15.

From the Hilo and Honolulu papers It appears that Hilo has gone ahead on the assumption that the dates original set were final for Hilo has asked the Honolulu Chamber of Commerce to have the itinerary changed as Hilo harbor will have the Mauna Kea and Matsonia in on September 15, and the latter has a big cargo of sugar to load. Shortage of taxis would also re sult if the excursion came in while tourists from the other two steamers were on Hawaii. It was added that September 16 is Regatta Day in Hono lulu affording ainusetnpnt nnH nlp. tainment for visitors on that date. Meantime the only sale thing for the Mailt pnmmiltpo la 1 n eta. it plans for the original date, September i, ana mange mem to meet another date if the itinerary should be chang ed as Hilo proposes. If such change should be made it would put the party in Hilo probably September 22 and 23 for the steamer is now scheduled leave on Its return voyage September 23, at noon. That would nrohahtv inpnn milvol in Vnim.
