The candidates who were absent were either in the liana district or on Mo lllokal campaigning and will be noti fied of the program. It is unlikely that candidate John Wise will be able to t with the party, but he will be asked to send a repre sentative if he desires. Letters of in vitation to him and candidates Lyman and King were sent out by last night's mail by Charley Wilcox, who acted as secretary of the meeting. Kalama Made Manager Sam Kalama is campaign manager, that is, arrangements for the meetings are in his hands, the "honor" being thrust upon him on the motion being put by Representative Pasclioal since Kalama was in the chair. It had been made by Pasclioal and was sec- onded by Senator Kice. The general itinerary was arranged by the meet- ing, however. I Because of the fact that there are ! 21 candidates campaigning It was pro posed that the candidates divide into two parties but that found opposition. Delegate Baldwin said there would be .talk about "throat cutting" if there were two parties while If they kept together each would know the others were playing fair. Ho took the op portunity to give the candidates a lit tle talk on avoiding personalities and keeping the campaign clean. All were Republicans and should remember it. The fact that choice at. the primary " Vieant election did not alter that fact il - the introduction of personalities A to a campaign tended to split the pyrty for long years into the fuluie. , Tour Is Arranged When it came to the arranging of the itinerary Senator Rice took out pencil and paper and consulted others as he jotted down names and places. One point that entered into the plans was that there will be a church convention on Molokai and that will mean a gathering that could not otherwise be secured and will avoid the necessity of much traveling about on that Island. Candidates will take the Mikahala to Kalaupapa leaving Lahaina on the evening of Wednesday, September 20, and will have Thursday, the 21st, for the campaign at. the Settlement. They will return to Lahaina and have Fri day on that side of the Island with the chief meeting in Lahaina on Fri day night, September 22. t Saturday, September 23, they will come over to Wailuku and meetings at Waikapu and Waihee are to be ar rangd with a big meeting in Wailuku. Sunday morning. September 24, the party will board the Mikahala and proceed to l'ukoo where there will be a meeting following the luau which will close the church convention, prob ably about three in the afternoon. Sunday night the Makaiwa will take the campaigners from Pukoo to Kau po in the liana district. Monday and part of Tuesday, September 25 and 26, will be devoted to the Hana dis trict with speeches at Kaupo, Kipa liulu and liana on Monday and Nahi tu and Keanae Tuesday then contin- umsim w ",, wharf projects provided in the loan Tuesday night. : Sep te mber 2 . t he e ' J J SfrS S li!'-1'1- At that time the ku.

Henry Ford today ordered 70,000 employees to leave alone all forms of liquors, in eludings wines and beers, under the penalty of discharge, and asserted that drinking had recently caused accidents in the plant. Ford stated that employes whose br.'-fth smelled of liquor, or who wat. found carrying liquor or known to have it in his home, would be dismissed immediately. $uit To Set Aside Agreement on Water Said To Be Possible! Possibility of an action being I brought against the county to have set I aside the agreement between the coun- i ty and Wtiiluku Sugar Conniany gov-1 orning the supplying of water by the; company to the county was mentioned 1 at the meeting of the board of super- Irvisors when Peruvia J. Goodness said I tin lunl lumril fliurn u-!id rl i unnucinn nf I such, a tirmiosal. 'The cmntv engineer; is" to determine to what extent water 1 rights have been interfered with by j the count v by blocking auwais. I wnt r;,m, p-.c-u-rf i At the meeting Friday the question j of furnishing of water free came up ' one more. Peruvia J. Goodness asked what had become of applications of himself and others made some time since. The property affected is in some instances in the vicinity of Vineyard street and in others in the Amori Tract. The county engineer re plied that in the instances as to which Goodness inquired the owneis of the property had not joined in the agree ment between the county and the su- I gar company under which the persons who joined and permitted the closing of open auwais might receive free water to the extent, ihey were entitled to take from the auwais. Goodness said he was not asking for free water but that he felt that hav ing given up water rights he and those he represented were entitled to some compensation, to a lower rate. It was then he said that ho had hen-d plans lor preserving water rights through a suit to open the auwais were beii.g discussed in some quarters. Supervisor Guy Goodness said that even under the agreement he felt that water users from the county pipes ought to pay something for the wa iter taken lor their proportion the up keep and maintenance of the system. Investigation Asked Supervisor Fleming then suggested I the investigation by the county engi neer mentioned above. He was sure he said,, that persons did not want the auwais opened but prefered to take water from the county pipes. The point was how far had the county in terfered with the lights of persons through disuse of auwais. If it had interfered seriously with such rights the owners might be entitled to com pensation. The matter of determining who was and was not entitled to the use of wa ter Is one which no county official wants to decide for it would make the one who undertook to do so practical ly set himself up as a judge of ques tions of evidence and matters of law. Further consideration of the subject will be had after the county engineer reports. Money Not Used For Molokai Wharf Asked For Maui Belt Road Request for a transference of the $50,000 appropriation for a wharf at Molokai to the belt road fund for the securing of road building equipment snd the establishment of a roadwork ers camp will be asked of the governor under a resolution passed by the board of supervisors Friday. The sum ap propriated for the wharf is not suffici ent to build such a one as is plan ned and a larger appropriation is to be asked at the next session of the legislature. A few months since it was reported to the board of supervisors that the governor had expressed a willingness to devote any unexpended amounts from the Molokai wharf and Kahului ?

Maui residents are to be given a chance to see Molokai next Satur day aboard the Inter Island steam ship Kilauea. Several Excursions have been run from Honolulu and have been received with enthusiasm by malahinis and Kamaainas alike. It was suggested early this summer that such an excursion could be run from Maui also, but the idea was not taken up at the time and seemed to have allowed to rest. Saturday Lorrin K. Smith, Maui member of the Tourist Bureau announced tthat he had made arrangements with the Ir-ter-lslund Company for the running of the Excursion. He had taken the subject up earlier but had not re ceived definite assurances from the company uniil that morning. Though Molokai is the near neigh bor of Maui and is part of this county there are a comparitively few resi dents of the Valley Isle who have ever sailed completely around it, skirting the shores closely enough to get any definite idea of it. As is the case with residents of Oahu and Ha waii they have formed their impres sions of it from what they have seen of it. when traveling past on the Mau na Kea in the day time or on the Kilauea on a moonlight night. They have seen only one side of an Island that is called one of the most scenl cally remarkable and interesting of the group. Smith recognized this when he started to accept the tenta tive offer of the Inter-Island Company to run a "See Molokai Excursion." The Kilauea is scheduled to leave Claudine Wharf, Kahului, Saturday morning at 8:30 and to return in the afternoon. There is no need to take luncheon along for the meal is in cluded in the price of excursion. It is also announced that there will be a good orchestra aboard to furnish music during the trip and that W. J. Coelho will explain the points of in terest to the sightseers during the trip. Tickets have been placed on sale at Wailuku Hardware & Grocery Co., Puunene Store, Camp One Store, Paia Store, Hamakuapoko Store, Tarn See Store, Haiku Fruit and Packing Co. ollice and Lahaina Store. Turk Forces Marching On The Dardanelles; Greek Rout Complete (ASSOCIATED PRESS) CONSTANTINOPLE, Sept. 12. Large Turkish forces are marching on Dardanelles and the British gar rison there has received an entire di vision reinforcement. Turkish papers openly declare that Angora will dic tate peace to the allies at the point of the bayonet. Allied generals who consulted with the high commission ers decided the French. British, and Italian flags shall be flown from neu tral zones at Ismid and Dardanelles and that any attack on the neutral zones will be regarded as an act of defiance. A dispatch from Smyrna stated the Greeks had set ablaze and destroyed Bruga, a former Turkish capital. (ASSOCIATED TRESS) PARIS, Sept 11 Turkish forces have swept the Greeks out of Asia Minor at the end of a two weeks campaign. Smynra is a hot bed for the typhus and plague, crowded with thousands of refugees and the food supply is limited. (ASSOCIATED I'RESS) CONSTANTINOPLE, Sepl. 11 The Greek army is hopelessly beaten and all members of the high commission are on board the British battleship, Iron Duke. Hostilities have ceased. Nazilll and Aiden and other towns are burned. Mustapha Kemal Pashs the Turkish Nationalist leader has established headquarters at Kassaba and allied and American consuls have been Invited to proceed there to ar range for the taking over of the city. There is a minimum of disorder. The Greek disaster is said to be the great est in history. The allies are urging the popula tion to maintain order. n- Arguments Offered In the Circuit Court yesterday Attorney Eugene Murphy argued points of law on ap peals from the magistrates courts in the cases of the Territory vs Kiu Fong and against M. Saito. Attorney for the defense contends that the United States instead of the Terri tory of Hawaii should be made plain tiff In Federal Prohibition Law en forcement cases. Judge Case took the matters under advisement. Driving Not Heedless In the Cir cuit Court last Friday the case against J. S. B. Mackenzie, Jury waived, was heard and the court held that there was not sufficient evidence to show that the defendant was in any way heedless in his handling of his automobile in connection with the incident complained of. Angelenos Will Enjoy Fine Luau True Maui Hospitality Will Be Extended and Atmos phere of Hawaii to permeale Entertainments. One of the most elbnrate luaus held en Maui in tars will be a feature of the entertainment of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce excursionists next Tuesday evening. The entertain ment committees met yesterday after noon in the Chamber of Commerce 100ms ami got plans for the enter tainment pretty well outlined. An other meeting will he held Thursday afternoon following the return of Lor. rin K. Smith, Maui member of the Tourist Bureau, from a meeting of that body today. He will be back to morrow afternoon on the Mauna Kea. Transportation arrangements, the luau, meeting the party, and a pro gram of entertainment during or alter the luau were considered at the meet ing. The securing of cars has been worked out by C. E. Morris and he finds only about 20 seven-passenger rent service cars are available. This will requite the securing of about AO more seven-passenger cars that are privately owned or enough seven and five passenger cars so owned to give the necessary carrying capacity. E. R. Bevins was added to the committee which also has the matter of securing volunteer citizens to accompany those visitors who are accommodated in the for rent cars. Luau Plans Made The luau is to be held at 6:?.0 in the evening in the Commercial Building at the Fair Grounds. As said above it is to be one of the most elaborate Hawaiian feasts arranged for in sev eral years. Mauiites who desire to at tend will be cared for to a limited number and tickets will be sold them at $1.50 each. Members of the Cham ber ol" Commerce and their wives are especially invited to take advantage of the opportunity of dining with Maui's visitors. W. A. Clark and II. K. Duncan are in charge of the luau and all arrangements connected with il. Members of the committee favor having staged if it can be arranged so (o do in Hie limited time that is at disposal of "A Night in Hawaii" such as those that were staged at the Teacher's Association performance, that of the Hawaiian Women's Club and the Companions of the Forest at Make Happy. Chairman Worth O. Aiken of 1 lie committee has that mat ter in hand. On the arrival of the party or pos sibly on shipboard the excursionists will be presented each a Maui No Ka Oi hat hand as a souvenir. Day's Program. At Kahului Tuesday mom ing a re ception committee is to meet the vis itors. As they come ashore they are to enter waiting automobiles. One half of the cars will make an up country trip through the cane and pine fields and to the canneries. The other cars will make the trip to Lahaina and up lao Valley. Half of that party will go up the Valley before running over the Pali road and the other half will make the Valley trip after their ret uin from West Maui. In the after noon those who saw Lahaina side in the morning will go up country to the cane and pine fields and the canneries and the others will make the lao Val lev West Maui tour, dividing on the I Valley run as did the morning party. I At noon luncheon Is to be served at ! the Grand Hotel. I Lorrin Smith proposed that there be i a polo game staged at Sunnyside but jollier members of the committee felt ! that all the time would be required for the motor car sightseeing trips. I The mire may yet be worked up, how ever. I Following the rides the parties will I go to the Fair Grounds for the luau. i During the feast there is to be Ha 'waiian music and the entire commit I tee were in favor of iis being real Ha waiian music with jazz instruments 1 and jazz numbers kapu. It was also felt that a "Night in Hawaii" would be an entertainment more to be en joyed than a dance after the strenuous day 01 sight seeing the visitors will have had. More rompiehensive details of the entertainment to be offered will be published Friday. -.a- Wife of President Regarded Recovering I (ASSOCIATED PRESS) j WASHINGTON, Sept. 12. Contin ued optimistic reports from physicians attending Mrs. Harding produced a marked effect on the President who has been under the double strain of governmental responsibilities and his wile's illness and had begun to show in his physical appearance Sunday, j The President is now alert and smiling. He hits spent the majority of 'his waking hours since Friday near ! the sickroom door. Laddie Boy, the President's pet ahedalo, has olten shared the vigil and sat near the Pre sident's knee as they both watched the door of Ihe sickroom. It is is announced the crisis is ap parently passed and issuance of bul letins will cease. Transportation of School Children to Be Resumed at Ona Transportation of school children where it was furnished last year will be resumed at the opening of school without waiting for the letting ol new contracts. Chairman Kalama of the board of supervisors have notified those who had the contract last year to continue it this year from the opening of the schools until the ten ders advertised for have been opened and new contracts let to the lowest bidder, the contractors to furnish ttnmportat ion meantime at the same rate at which they were paid last. year. The fart that contracts were not awarded before the epjn ing of schools had occasioned some alarm on that, point. New Request Made At the meeting of the board of su pervisors Friday afternoon a petition signed by 52 residents of the Maka wao district asking that transporta tion be furnished to the graduates of the Makawao grade school who want to attend highsehool was presented through Supervisor Guy Goodness. It was explained that there is available for transportation for the balance of the calendar year only about $900 and for the next, calendar year only $2500. The present appropriation under which the board is working in furnishing transportation was put through the legislature as an experi ment and only $5000 was appropri ated for the biennial period. The petition was later withdrawn aftPr Goodness had moved that it be grant ed and there was no second to his motion. The $900 will barely carry through the plans outlined for the routes being established. Relative to transportation to the highsehool from the Makawao sec tion it was objected that if transpor tation be furnished them it. could with equal justice be asked by residents of Wailuku, Puun-ne and Kahului for the children. This was answered by saying that those settlements are on the line of the railrond and rea sonable rates are given the school children which parents can afford to pay for a higher education than the grammar grades for their child ren. At. present transportation is furnished only that children may se cure a grade school education when their parents reside miles away from the nearest school More Expected Soon Other applicants may be expected to be made. Kuiaha school was dis continued toward the close of last year on the ground there were not sufficient pupils to warrant its contin uance under the rules of the depart ment. It may be reopened but if it is not, the parents of that section will be heard from. It is expected that at least one and perhaps more small schools may be dropped later. If so, there will be requests for transpor tation from those sections. When the Hawaiian homesteads are opened on Molokai, there will come a request for a school or for transportation to the nearest school for children of the settlers. There is no possibility of all of these securing transportation in 1923. If the transportation plan is to be continued and extended a consider ably larger appropriation will have to be secured from the next legislature. Custody of School Cottages Is Given County Engineer School cottages and school build ings have been abused during the va cation period and there has been no one apparently, responsible for their care and custody. County Engineer Paul I.ow brought the fact to the at tention of the supervisors en Friday. Some discussion followed as to who should be made responsible and there was some division of sentiment as to whether it should be the county engi neer or the district overseer. It was finally decided to add the custody of school buildings to the already num erous duties ot the county engineer's department. One proposal that was made was to require teachers upon entering poses sion of cottages to deposit $5 for the keys, such deposit to be returned to the teacher or teachers upon the re turn of the key. The suggestion fol lowed the assertion that teachers went out and left the cottages with no one in charge when their year was ended No action was taken on Ihe proposal. Comity Engineer Low in calling the subject to ihe attention of the board said that during the summer months persons other than teachers entered and made use of cottages and the furniture and did not always take can to leave the places in the condition in which they had found them when they departed. It vas also brought cut that there was no 1 ne whose duty it is to see what is the rendition of ttachers' cottages when Ihe school year is ended and the teachers have for vacations. As a result there are complaints when new teachers enter Hie buildings to occupy them in ihe next school year. The situation as pointed out is that in some schools principal' and leaili ers move out for the summer with no one lelt in charge and control ol valuable public properly. Daugherty Opens B?dt!e For Writ To End Disorder Attorney General's Office Pre sents Formidable Array of Cha rges of Murder and Vio lence to Court. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) CHICAGO. Sept. 12. Enion leaders said toility that an agreement for the settlement of the strike will prohablv be readied late this afternoon or to il iulit. President Jewell of the rail road executives said a basis for the settlement of Hie strike is being con sidered by the geneial policy commit tee ol the shop craftsmen. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) CHICAGO. Sept. 12. Arguments on Attorney General Daugherty's motion to make permanent the injunction against railroad strikers which were started yesterday continued in the Federal court before Judge Wilkerson t oday. Daugheity's staff enumerated re ports of 25 murders and other fatali ties due to strike causes; they pointed out the suffering and inconvenience occasioned to passengers who were left stranded in the California and Arizona deserts where trainmen quit their work; they declared that 55'M) deputy Enited States marshals had had to be employed and assigned to the protection ol' interstate commerce; 930 mail trains had been discontinued by the railroads and the damage to California fruit growers alone is esti mated at $75,000,000. Immense Array Evidence Supported by one of the most form idable legal batteries the government has ever thrown into onq court action. Attorney General Daugherty yesterday set his forces in motion towards the goal of a permanent injunction against the striking railroad workers when he presented his petition to Federal Judge Wilkerson. Two carloads of evidence on tools of destruction. tnousann.9-u telegrams, photographs, bine prints, books, transcripts of statements by some 17,000 individuals are closely guarded by federal agents and secret service men. Secret ser vice men also protected the Attorney General and Judge Wilkerson as a re sult of reports of a widespread con spiracy for violence at the hearing. lampenng with 60,000 cars, burn ing ot 14 bridges and destruction of numbers of locomotives were mention ed early in the hearing. Strikers Lost Point United States District Judge Wilker son yesterday denied the motion by attorneys for the leaders of striking railroad shopmen, asking the dismissal of the government's bill for a tem porary injunction, and ordered the government to proceed with its argu ment for an injunction to take the place of the restraining order which was granted 10 days ago and expired today. WASHINGTON, Sept. 12. Republi cans and Democrats alike predict that the impeachment charges presented against Attorney General Daugherty by Representative Keller of Minnesota yesterday, will die in the judiciary committee. Seven specific charges are made by Keller and they include alleged at tempts to abridge freedom of speech and of the press, right of peaceable assembly, threatening citizens, using public funds of his office illegally, rec- conimending the release of wealthy of fenders from prison and failure to prosecute persons who have been pro- pertly indicted. Impeachment of Attorney General Harry M. Daugherty was attempted in the house yesterday by Rep. Oscar E. Keller, Republican of Minnesota. Rising 10 a point of the highest pri vilege, Representative Keller demand ed: "Impeach Harry M. Daugherty !" So much confusion followed that the rest of his opening sentence was nol heard and he was lorced to stop on a point of order. Later a vote referred Representative Keller's demand for immediate action on a resolution ol investigation to the judiciary committee. Delegates to Civic Convention Wanted Members of the Maui Chamber of ommeice who wish to attend the Civic Convention in Honolulu October 2S and 29 will be accredited as dele gates and given credentials if thev will apply to the secretary of the Chamber, J. II. Gray. No delegates have been appointed and the conven tion will he held before the Maui Chamber meets again. President Collins of the Maui Cham ber lias received a letter from Hono lulu asking that the Maui civic body name its delegates. He has no infor mation as to who may be intending to attend the convention or may de sire to do so. Any such members are asked to notify either President Col lins or Secretary Gray. Esually there are several of Maui's business men in Honolulu at week ends for business t; iis and such mem bers of the Chamber may be able 10 arrange to attend the sessions that are being arranged and in so doing will be accredited officially.
