Schwab is said by some Wall street financiers to have been a failure in the big position to which Carnegie elevated him, and he no longer has any influence with the directors. Schwab's reported escapades in Monte Carlo did not do him any good in the financial world. At a meeting of the directors of the United States Steel corporation on July 26 Schwab's resignation was accepted and Thomas Morrison of Pittsburg was elected in his place. Incidentally, a dividend of over nineteen million dollars was de clared. Schwab was also in the big steamship trust, and recently he has at tracted much notice by repaying investors who lost money through him in the' collapse of that financial bubble.

MAUI ALSO WANTS A BREAKWATER THE ANSWER TO ACTING GOVERNOR ATKINSON'S REQUEST FOR SUGGESTIONS ABOUT FEDERAL APPROPRIATIONS A PUBLIC BUILDING, A BREAKWATER FOR KAHULUI AND COR RECT CHARTS OF THE OCEAN. WAILUKU, Maui, August 6. The executive committee and the officers of the Maui Improvement Association, together with other citizens, met at the Wailuku court house last Friday evening to consider what particular im provements were desired from the Federal government. This meeting was called in response to a wireless message from Acting Governor Atkinson to Judge Kepoikai of the Improvement Association. The matter of a count building was the first topic discussed and the mat ter of financial assistance from Washington. Judge Kepoikai introduced the following resolutions: "Whereas, at the last regular session of the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii, $3500 was appropriated for a country building to be located in Wailuku, and whereas the Wailuku Improvement Association believe the sum appropriated is insufficient. "Resolved, That plans be drawn and presented by the Department of Pub lic Works to the Federal government and that the Federal government be asked to assist." The intention is to have a building of sufficient dimensions as will war rant space for a postoftice, U. S. district court chambers, and deputy U. S; marshal's office, in conjunction with the county building. R. W. Filler being called upon to suggest other needed improvements said in part: "There are one or two things pertaining to Maui which must be looked upon as very much needed and an absolute necessity. The S. S. American which sailed from .vahului last week en route to New York from Honolulu, went on an unchartered shoal off Molokai. "While these islands have been charted the survey was of an elementary nature only, but have never been properly charted, as could be vouched for by two sea captain who upon asking for late charts found them unobtain able. "On leaving Honolulu ships encounter 30 miles of dangerous current run ning from three to five miles an hour, and ships could urift out of the course, as there are not lights after passing Diamond Head light until that of Mo lokai was sighted, and after that the Lahaina light, which was not of suffi cient magnitude as was proven by the Kllohcna going ashore. Four miles out from Kahului the coast line, on account of the high mountain Back ground, was very deceptive and a sea captain depending upon his charts jeopardized his vessel in entering Kahului at night or in heavy weather." Filler suggested three powerful lighthouses for Molokal, one at Lahaina, Kahakuloa Point, Kahului, Huelo, Nahiku and Hana. Proceeding he dwelt very fully upon Kahului as a port of call. In conclusion he asked the hearty co-operation of the citizens as well as unity of action to obtain a breakwater for Kahului, when ether needed improvements such as wharves would natu rally follow. Manager Burnliani of the American-Hawaiian line while on his tour of inspection realized the Importance of a breakwater, coast survey, and dredg ing of Kahului harbor, and asked that copies of charts both old and of re cent origin be given him and that Maui could depend upon his influence and support whenever needed In this direction. Prior to adjournment a motion was adopted that the recommendation of lighthouses be left to a committee of which R. W. Filler should be chairman, to draw up all the recommenda tions and resolutions and forward them to the Acting Governor. 1 .;. v.:.:.'!',''v',-vov DEPARTING. 'Monday, August 8. S. S.

ANXIOUS TO GET TOGETHER AGAINST THE COMMON ENEMY BUT EACH PAYltf ? WOULD LIKE TO SWALLOW ncih'l run I i I i WAILUKU, August 5. The political situation on Maui is peculiar with reference to the Democrats and Home Rulers. Many of the Home Rulers, at ' least the more intelligent of them, are anxious to fuse with the Democrats under the Democratic banner, while the more ignorant class desire the fusion but it must be conducted under the Home Rule constitution. That is pre cisely how the matter stands at present. No meetings of any importance or conferences have as yet held to discuss the matter, excepting one some two weeks ago, when the matter of fusion was turned down. However, as there were no Democrats present at that meeting, the action of the Home Rulers present is not taken as the party's intent. In fact they know only too well " that without the assistance of the Democrats, who comprise the more intelli gent of the Home Rule vote at the last election, the Home Rule party has no chance of victory at the next election.
