PRICE 5 CENTH Mudania Meeting May Bring Peace British Believe Turkish Troops Reported Eva cuating One Section of Neutral Zone. Kemalists Have Retired. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) LONDON, Oct. 3 Hopes for a speedy settlement of conditions in the Near East were expressed In official circles here today as the Mudania conference, with England, France, Italy, the Na tionalists and the Kemalist as participants went into session. At the present time the Kara diga section of the neutral zone stands evacuated by the Turks al though advices from Constanti nople declares Turkish troops have made their appearance in the zone at Bergaz, eighteen miles northeast of Chanak. Turks are also in possession of Kusukeui twelve miles south of Chanak, it is said. At Chanak the Kemalist caval ry has retired from the more ad vanced positions, materially re ducing the danger of an immedi ate clash, dispatches state. CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 3 The long awaited Mudania conference opened here at one o'clock today with llamid Bey representing the An gora and Franklin Bouilion. the French. The two representatives left before the conference to get Mom belle for Italy, General Shar for France and General Harrington for England. Daily communiques are to be radioed to Constantinople, refer ring to the progress of the discussion, it was announced. Bouillon has secured the Kemalists pledge to suspend military movements during the conference provided the allies accept certain conditions. These are: First, guarantee concerning the eva cuation of Thrace; second, the estab lishment of allied garrisons in the larger towns in Thrace; third, the oc cupation of Thrace by Turkish gen darmerie; fourth, the transfer of the civil administration in Thrace to the Kemalists; filth, the evacuation of Thrace in eight days by the Greeks; sixth, the occupation of the west line of the Maritza river by the allied troops. At an extraordinary council meet ing with the British embassy it was decided the Kemalist proposals which are to be laid before the conference are "discussable but not acceptable Deny Port Sought ATHENS, Oct. 3. Jugo-Slavia to day officially informed the revolution ary committee in charge of the gov ernment that reports she will seek a territorial outlet through the Asean Sea was untrue. It was suggested at the same time that assurance of free port right at Salonica to the Greeks would be desirable. This is for the purpose of allowing Serbian ships to receive merchandise by way of the Mediterranean, it was pointed out. Soviet Protests MOSCOW, Oct. 2. The Soviet gov ernment Bent a note to Great Britain, Italy, and France today, protesting against the blockade of the straits of 1 he Dardanelles. WASHINGTON. Soviet Russia is prepared immediately to throw more than 300,000 soldiers in the field to aid the victorious forces of Mustapha Kemal in further conquests according to official information. If Mustapha really means his threats to take Constantinople and to carry out his other diastic demands, Soviet Russia may be found moving its armies through Rumania to at tack Constantinople on the European side while the Turks attack from Asia Minor, or dispatching Bolshevik forces through the Caucasus to aid the Kemal forces. If this were done, war undoubtedly would be on. The armies of the "Lit tle Entente" would be thrown against the Russians and, with the Bulgarians contributing to the flame by support ing Turkey and Russia, iFrance and some of the other allied powers would undoubtedly use every means, including war, to thwart the Russians. Poland, a protege of France, also cer tainly would attack the Bolshevists. Situation Rests PARIS. Oct. 2. General feeling in official circles here is that the danger poinj in the Near East has been pass ed. The withdrawal of Turkish Na tionalist military forces from Ereqeui and Chanak is accepted as proof that the Angora government is ready to comply with the desires of the Allies regarding the neutral zones. Worse Yesterday CONSTANTINOPLE. Oct. 1. Mili tary quarters expressed the belief to day that a rupture between the Bri tish and the Turks is likely to occur at any hour unless the Turks eva luate the neutral zone. British officials admitted today that the Chanak situation is growing more critical and that hopes for a peaceful settlement are fading. A note from Mustapha Kemal Pa sha, Turkish Nationalist leader, to General Harrington, the allied com ander, couched in a hostile tenor, considered as closing the door to .1 peaceful settlement of the straits question. Kemal in his note demands that the British withdraw from the FAIR HOLIDAY FIRST DAY Maui plantation companies have decided to make Thurs day, October 12, the opening day of the Fifth Annual Maui County Fair, a holiday. The Fair management urges the merchants and other business men of the county to close up their business also, at least for half a day and if possible all day, so that their employees may have the opportunity to attend the Fair on that day. This action is especially urged upon the Japanese busi ness houses since the opening- day of the Fair is Japanese day, all of the races are for Japanese owned horses and the offi cials are also Japanese... There is beiu, arranged a baseball game between two Japanese teams of East and West Maui. Manager Mcrris Goes To MoRoiUiii To Take Bitter Posiiicn There Manager Charles E. Morris of the ! Royal Hawaiian Garage Maui Branch is to leave tomorrow for Honolulu to j accept a promotion in the company.He i is to become its sales manager. Mrs. j Morris will follow later. ''Doonie" Hartman, well known car salesman ; and by no means unknown on Maui, j arrived this morning from Honolulu j to take over the management of the Maul concern. I Morris received word of the plans ' Sunday morning from General Man- ag?r Phillips. The latter had return-1 ed to Honolulu Wednesday night and j there had been no definite plans for a change made at that time. The de-1 cision was reached on Saturday, Mor ris says. Last Friday morning Manager Phillips talked with the editor of Maul News in the office of the Hono lulu concerns. At that time he said nothing to indicate that Morris was to be taken into the main office be yond the remark that good men are developed in the other Islands and then some times taken to Honolulu. Both Mr. and Mrs. Morris have made many warm friends on Maui who will regret their departure. Mor ris says that he will take with him some of the pleasantest memories of his life and Mrs. Morris also cordially regrets the breaking of social ties formed with "neighbors so thoroughly delightful whom I can never forget." Truck Overturned; All Occupants Thrown Out And One Badly Hurt Six persons were thrown from a iFord truck, one seriously injured, the others escaping with scratches, cuts and bruises, when the car went into the ditch near the home of Fred Wolf in the Pauwela section on Sat urday afternoon. The accident is re ported to have occurred about 2:30 o'clock. The truck was being driven in from Peahi by Sherman Hall, hydraulic en gineer of the East Maui Irrigation Company and in it with him were five Japanese. The car struck a stone In the road, it is said, and the steer ing gear became locked, the car go ing into the ditch and capsizing, throwing out all of the occupants. One of the Japanese struck upon his head, probably encountering a rock and sustained a fracture of the skull. Yesterday afternoon he was reported as resting comfortably with good chance of recovery. Dr. St. Sure was called and ren dered immediate surgical aid to all of the injured and the Japanese who had suffered the fracture of the skull was taken to the hospital. Asiatic side of the straits. He says he will withdraw his Nationalist forces "slightly" if the British accede to this demand. Kemal also demands cessation of arbitrary measures aliened to be em ployed by the British authorities in Constantinople in dealing with the Turkish population, and protests against the destruction of Turkish war material along the straits. World's Series The 1922 world's series base ball games open tomorrow.

Maui News has the largest regular sporting sec tion of any Island paper out side of Honolulu. Accident Not Caused oy rcor equipment or Careless Operations Full ekl detailed investigation into the accident which occurred on the Kahuk! railroad lias shown no fault in the equipment of the road nor any carelessness in its operation. Reports have been received from the brake man upon whom the responsibility for the proper holding of the cats rested, the locomotive engineer of No. 9 and station agents who saw the runaway cars. The fact that it was the first accident that arose from the handling of cars in nine years of operations in that section substantiates the asser tion. The brakeman claims that he ap plied the brakes and a "stick" before leaving the train and that they were properly cared for. The evidence of other employes that has been taken discredits his testimony. He also says that the cars were properly guarded by safety switches but in this instance the cars kept to the track instead of derailing on passing a switch. The cars and equipment of the road, especially the former, are as near per fect and standard as can be obtained. They are of Ihe type vised by the besi mainland roads for similar work though of narrower gauge. In last Friday's issue of Maui Now? it was not intended to be intimated that the road was being or had been carelessly operated and Mr. Walsh should have been quoted as -.aying that the accident must have arisen from carelessness on the part of some one in that particular instance. Delegate Pays Visit To Hawaiian Homes Lands On Molckai Delegate Harry A. Baldwin will leave for the Mainland soon at'tei- the Maui County Fair and is making his preparations for departure. Yester day morning he accompanied George P. Cooke, executive of the Hawaiian Homes Commission, on the Makaiwa to Molokai to inspect the homes land George Cooke arrived from Hono lulu Saturday night. He came in answer to a letter from the delegate in which the latter said that lie wish ed to visit the lands with Cooko be fore he started for Washington in order that he might thoroughly fam iliarize himself with the present sta tus and the needs of the project. They are expected back today. In Honolulu, in his office, Executive Cooke has an immense mass of val uable data. He talked with the writer as to available water supplies and the possibilities of their development as well as on the progress that is be ing made. Asked as to the apparent opposi tion of Lyman to the working of the commission, Cooke said he believed it came from the fact that Lyman and other Big Islanders had failed to se cure expenditures of the commission funds on their own island. Contract Is Let For Building of Needed Home For Children Contract for the erection of the Children's Home building was let on Saturday to K. Honda, the lowest bidder, whose offer is $8459 for the construction, plumbing, painting and electrical work, the Home funds to furnish the building material. The next low offer was $10,050 and the third was an error, $17,461, the bidder expecting to furnish the materials. The Home has 30,000 feet of lum ber from old hospital buildings, given to it by the county. It has tenders which are accepted from the Kahului Railroad of $7171 for the other neces sary materials which brings actual costs to $15,620. Work is to be com pleted by January 15. The Children's Home will be locat ed on the St. Anthony playground, mauka of Malulani Hospital, facing and about 150 feet back from the Wailuku Kahului road. Thus more than a year of hard work by Father Justin and others In terested in the project is nearlng culmination. Campaign Heats Up In Closing Days and Rival Claims Made Several Candidates Journey to Molckai; Final Rallies Will Be Held Friday; Partisans Have Divergent Views. Swinging into the last week of the primary election campaign the candi dates of Maui are all busy. One party spent last night on Molokai and others are working the personal in fluence policy in various par's of this IS'i'Ed. The candidates who went to Molckai are M. G. Pasch and W. A. Clark who went over Sunday night with the baseball players on the Lrl lona from Lahaina, J. J. Walsh, John Kahookele and Jack Kaonohi. They were accompanied by Cun.pilgn Dint tor Sam Kalama and Sheriff Crowell and with them were D3lega;e L&ld win. and George F. Cook 3, the two lafct named going to inspect the Ha waii Homes project. Friday night will see the end of the campaign and the chief meeting is expected to be in Wailuku as usual with an opportunity given each can didate to present his last (-laims to the suffrages of his hearers. Market street will be, also as usual, the place of spell binding. Fight Grows Hotter Partisans of the three Republican candidates for delegate on the Repub lican ticket are putting forth the claims of their favorites loudly -ind expressing confidence. Here on Maui it Is apparent that Lyman has cut in to Wise strength somewhat, to what extent is not determined, but Wise supporters say he will have a hand some majority, nearly as many votes as his two opponents combined. Wise has sent out two messages from the hospital In Honolulu, one asking his friends to ignore the "slush fund" talk of King. The lat ter's talk has injured his own cause and turned voters from him. Lyman has been working a most persistent campaign which resulted in an unpleasant episode In Wailuku. He called with Peruvia Goodness on Mrs. Sarah Buck, a supporter of King and tried to swing her to his cause. She says he remained and argued un til nearly six o'clock from about four, did not leave when she asked him to and that she finally led him to the door and out, not converted to his cause but urging that her friends vote against Lyman whether or not they vote for King. All Three Confident For the unexpired term in the sen ate Goodness, Walsh and Kaumehei wa all express confidence. Goodness appears to have the edge on his rivals If the views of the rank and file mean anything. For representative it is generally conceded that Paschoal and Clark will be put over but as to the others the claims are conflicting. Oahu For Wise Personal observations of the writer on Oahu indicate Wise will re ceive a substantial plurality. King seems to be losing steadily. Lyman will get the more "radical" element From Kauai, reports received indi cate Wise but it is a foregone con clusion that Lyman will get a large vote in his Hawaii home which Wise will have to overcome elsewhere. Raymond Confident In Honolulu Friday, Dr. J. II. Ray mond expressed his confidence of securing the Democratic nomination. He is making a strong speaking cam paign, two or four talks a night. Ray mond says he is convinced that Jar rett's strength has been overestimat ed. Maul News will receive Associated Press reports from the outside Is lands Saturday night and will gather the Maul County returns as well. Baby Show Will Be Feature of the Fair It was announced yesterday after noon that a Baby Show will be an added attraction on the Thursday of the Fair. Often the sugar industry is called Maui's greatest but hun dreds of fond parents will deny this and insist that there offspring are sweeter and more valuable than the output of the great sugar mills and far more desirable than the thousands of cases of canned pineapples the canneries turn out. There Is no question but that the baby show will prove one of the most popular sections of all the Fair Grounds while the little folk are on display. ORDER AT ONCE One week from today Maui News will issue its 36-page, color work cover Fair Edition, whirh will con tain illustrations suff rient to fill six or seven pages and much in teresting information on the home Island. It is printing double the usual number of copies but this edition will be in great demand and it is advisable that copies should be ordered in advance. 8- THIRTEEN NAVAL VESSELS WILL MAKE HEADQUARTERS IN HARBOR OF KAHULUI DURING FAIR DAYS "Don't Cut Screen, Use Key," Harris "Friend Burglar:" "There are a few more sufts of underwear and one or two pair of locks, a few knicknacks, a cap and a panama hat that have survived your fourth visit to my home in the past few months." ''But listen, old top." "I suppose you will want these soon. All I ask Is that on your next visit please don't cut any more screens. It lets the mosquitoes in. Just let me know when your'e coming and I'll leave the key to the house on the front porch." Dick Harris, manager of the Maui Amusement Company chain of theaters Issues the above state ment to the person of dubious oc cupation whose business it is of visiting other peoples homes and annexing the family jewels, to say nothing of men's and women's lingerie, hose and other articles of wearing. The strange visitor has paid four visits to the Harris home in a very few months. The last time, on Saturday, he cut. window screens to effect an entrance. Harris objects to the defacing of the house which, by the way, isn't his. Therefore his kind Invitation. Maui Hawaiian Women On Record Opposing Vakar Hula Dances Opposition to vulgar exhibitions of hula dancing, of what has been characterized by L. A. Thurston as "commercialized hula exhibitions" was voiced by the members of the Maui Hawaiian Women's Club at a meeting held last Friday afternoon. The action, proponents of the resolu tion said, does not mean that the club and its members are opposed to hula dancing of types which are not vul gar, indecent and suggestive, of which other type there are many. Nor does the action, it is said, reflect up on the performance which was given for the Los Angeles visitors at Ka huiui recently. The text of the resolution the club F.dopted follows: "Whereas, there is constantly be ing presented, in vulgar and inde cent form, to tourists and strangers within our gates, exhibitions of so called 'hula dancing'; which are not, in any true sense, representative ol Hawaii or its People, but, on the con trary, reflect upon every self-respecting woman of Hawaiian blood, "Therefore Resolved, that the Maui Hawaiian Woman's Club, in meeting regularly assembled, desires to, and does, place itself publicly of record as being strongly opposed to such commercialized exhibitions of the Anctent Hawaiian Hula. "EDI Til WILMINGTON, "Secretary Maui Hawaiian Women's Club." Engineer Violator 01 County Traffic Law, Court Rules Holding that A. P.

Low gave notice of appeal and the hearing on the claim will be heard at the next session of the circuit court. Magistrate Mossman, who had the case under advisement declared in his derision that the law demanding signal did not apply where the driver of a car was on a clear road. "In this instance, however," he said "it has been shown that there actual ly was a car in close proximity to that driven by Low, although the defend ant declares he first looked to ascer tain whether or not the road was celar." Low was summoned at Ihe instance of attorney Eugene Murphy, local at torney who was riding with Okamura at the time of the asserted near-accident. Heated words were passed be tween the two, according to testi mony offered before Judge Mossman, at the conclusion of which Murphy swore to a complaint. During the hearing the engineer admitted that he had not given a signal when he pulled into the middle of the street, hut maintained, in de fense, that under the present ordin ance he was not forced to do so hav ing first become certain I here was no moving vehicle near him at the time. Work of Final Preparations For Next Week's Big Show Is Going Forward Finely 1 In Every Branch. Thirteen narr.l vessels will give Kahului harbor the aspect of a naval base during fair time next week. Ad vices from the navy department in ; Honolulu say that number of govern ment sea craft will be here for the Fair. It is estimated by Fair officials and by shipping men who are familiar with the numbers carried in the crews of vessels of the type coining ' that this means there will be 600 at least in the personnel of the party. i In that number is included the naval band which will render concerts in the Fair Grounds during its stay. One destroyer, three mine sweepers one hydro plane tender (Eagle boat), eight submarines and three hydro planes will make up the fleet that is coming to Kahului. Captain Hausted of the destroyer is in command of the fleet as well as of his own vessel. Admiral Sunimerall expressed his re gret to the editor of Maui News in Honolulu last week that he would be unable to come again this year. All Moves Merrily Every department of the Fifth An nual Maui County Fair is now run ning on high and every department htati assures Fair Director Harold W. Rice that he will have an exhibit that will equal or surpass anything that has been offered on Maui during its experience in holding four county fairs. Down at the Fair Grounds evidence Is seen that the "big show" is now only nine days off. In the "Joy Zone" some of the rides are already in, the tennis courts, last year's roller skat ing rink are within a high enclosure, concession booths and buildings are going up and in the exhibit buildings preliminaries for installation are In progress. In the commercial building where it had been thought there would bo no automobile exhibits this year, there will bo three and the untaken space is gong fast. Th. If.

Bob Shingle has assured Maui News that his fine horses will be here and at least one other stable from the capital city is expected. Entertainment Aplenty Some novel entertainment features are being planned in addition to those that had been previously arranged. There is a possibility of the Great liostwick who has thrilled Honolulu crowds at Aloha Park coming here but the high winds that prevail on the Kahului Grounds may make It too dangerous to permit, his staging his hair raising ride. Baseball is a feature on Thursday and Saturday as well as the races and the Maui Championship is to be determined between Haiku and the American Chinese.
