At l'aia it was reported that the vote was be ing brought out well and that Jarrett workers were few. l'uunene is looked on as the banner Wise precinct and there are reports that Jarrett will re ceive a larger vote in l'aia than had been looked for. Some leaders said this morning that they recognized Jarrett was stronger than they had figured but expressed their confidence that the county would roll up at least 800 majority for Wise. Closing Meetings Held Senator Desha, Representative M. G. Paschoal, John Ferrelra, J. P. Cock--ett and W. A. Clark campaigned for Wise at Kalaupapa Saturday. Desha and Paschoal came over from Hono lulu and the party left Lahaina on the Makaiwa at an early hour Satur- dnv lnnrninrr.

Pacheco did not stop ,off on Maui but went on to tlie Big Island. On Market street a good sized crowd waited patiently for the arriv al of Jarrett until about 10 o'clock. They were held by Ioela Kiakahi, "the Kakaako Cannon Gall" and two singers. Jarrett spoke first in Ha waiian and then In English. A sig nificant thing about his speech was his appeal to the supporters of Lyman to desert their party because their choice for nominee had not been its choice and to give their voles to him. Ills play to take advantage of any discord that might have arisen in the primary and to encourage party dis loyalty was evident. He spoke with little attempt at oratory, making a plain, straightforward talk without rhetorical "fireworks". It was nearly eleven o'clock when the meeting broke up. Tlie letter from former Chief Jus tice Coke was carefully and skillfully drafted and recommended Jarrett as "a man worthy of confidence who could be depended upon to carry out the w.lll of the voters and serve them flllllll'llllv If umil (r, Wnnl,l,,l, It was not an .outright appeal to the friends of Coke here to support Jar- j rett irrespective of their party. j Maui Players To Put On "Adam and Eva" Maui Players havo been prepar ing for a second production and have practically determined to pro duce "Adam and Eva," MVs T. 11.

Universal Outpouring Marks Ceremonies Held As Mark Of Respect and Love For Late Arthur W. Collins Memorial services, beautiful and ap propriate in their simplicity, were held for the late Arthur W. Collins in the Hawaiian Church at Lahaina on Sunday afternoon at 3:30. From all parts of the Island there journey ed to tlie church those who had been his friends and admirers during his life and East and Central Maui were as well represented as the Lahaina side in tlie congregation which taxed tlie capacity of the church. It was a spontaneous outgoing of those whose love and respect he had won in his 15 years of life on Maui and an exemplification of his desire that on Maui there should be no real dhision into sections but that a com plete community spirit should pre vail. No nioro beautiful spot on the Val ley Isle could have been found for the holding of the services than the church at the foot of tlie West Maul mountains back of a playground which he had done much to give to the people. Within the church loving hands had prepared a scene of equal beauty. At the pulpit end or the church there was a veritable hill of floral offerings that had been brought or sent from far and near. These were so arranged that the clergymen who participated in the services were not seen till they rose from behind above the masses of flowers and ferns. Rack of them was a screen of palm leaes, ferns and blooms be hind which were those who partici pated in the rendering of musical numbers. In that great mass of flow ers were mingled tlie offerings of c'.oso friends, business associates and the humblest workers. The services wore opened with a prayer by Rev. E. E. Pleasant and then there was a song by a choir in Hawaiian "Come Unto Mo." A scrip tural reading by Mr. Pleasant follow ed and then the hymn "My Faith Looks Up To Thee."

Luf kin. "Hold Thou My Hand." A prayer was rendered by Rev. Frank N. Cockcroft and an address delivered by Rev. E. E. Pleasant in which lie dwelt on the simplicity of the lifo of Mr. Collins and of his ad herence to and maintenance of the highest ideals of Christian teachings in every day affairs. The benediction was pronounced by Rev. James Davis.

Last Tuesday ceremonies wore held by the Filipino community. As a mark of respect to Mr. Collins tlie management and members of tlie football teams that were to have play ed on Sunday postponed the opening of the season immediately upon the publication of tlie announcement that the memorial services were to bo held that afternoon. At the morning services of the Church or tho Good Shepherd, Rev. J. C. Villiers, before his sermon, com mented on the passing of A. XV. Col lins and dwelt on tho work he had done for the good of Maui and ills usefulness to the community gener ally as well as his fine character of manhood. -- Greek Journals Praise U. S.

Tho following extracts taken from papers published in At hens. From the Daily Skrip "While tho fleets of powerful Europe stood silent beloro tho butchery of Christians, America did all she could to save what ever was to bo saved from destruction.

Along with thoso refugees tho whole of Greece is grateful to America. Dur I ing the terrible tragedy of Asia Min or, the only saviours of tho innocent were the Americans." From tho Nea Himeru The Iponean refugees aro full I of emotion wlion they speak of the heroism of tho American sailors. While I the sailors of European warships stood idly by watching a spectacle I taken from Dante's Inferno, the Am j orican sailors showed all tho nobility I of their nature and all that is best in I human character. They did what they could, these Americans. Revolvers in hand they made superhuman efforts to snatch from tho Turkish beasts their holpless prey. They chiefly pro tected the women and children."

Sixty Miners Die In Pennsylvania Coal Mine Blast Rescue 31 out of 95 Workers; Several May Be Alive Be hind Timbered Brattice, Rescuers Hope. (ASSOCIATED I'UESM SI'ANGLER. Penn.. Nov. 7 That between 50 and GO of tlie miners en tombed in the Reilly mine when a terrific explosion occurred yestordav, have perished, was the belief express ed lieie by leaders of rescue crews who 1-ibored ceaselessly through tho night in tlie forloin hope or reaching their comrades. Thirty-one members or the impris oned group were lescued near tho foot of the shaft and rushed to the Spnngler hospital where the majority are believed to have a lair chance for recovery.

Tlie latter received first aid treatment below the surface and then, swathed in blankets, were taken above and rushed to the hospital. Red Cross Aids The Red Cross have established emergency headquarters at tlie mouth of the shaft and are conducting .their work in a drizzling rain while a large crowd, unmindful of the shower, aro looking on in silence. Two priests were among the first to reach the scene of tlie disaster and aided in quieting tlie hysterical and wdeping women who congregated near tlie mine and prayed for tho safe re turn of their husbands and sweet hearts. The hope that some of the entombed men had escaped death was reflected with the report that rescuers had en countered a brattice constructed of old timbers. Due to heavy gasses in tho level no attempt lias as yet been made to force passage through the brattice. Tills will probably be accomplished Secret Investigation Officials of the mine who conducted in immediate investigation into tlie catastrophe are believed to havo de termined the cause of til explosion but thus far have declined to issue a state ment.
