SCHWAB IS HOT A SUCCESS
Charles M. Schwab, the protege of
-dollar steel trust. 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.

about 12 feet in height and the wall will
be raised to a uniform height with 1
the wall about the new jail. I

'been largely "iniluenced by the ruling
made some time ago by Judge Gear in
Hhe matter of housing misdemeanor

COLORADO SPRINGS, Col., August 8. Seventy persons were drowned in
a wreck on the Denver and Rio Grande Railway today. Heavy rains and a
cloudburst had weakened the tressel crossing the Rio Grande and six cars
went through at a point near this city, falling with their occupants into the
river below. The cars and the bodies of the drowned were carried miles
down the stream. For a long distance from the scene of the disaster the
river banks are crowded with lamenting relatives of those who lost their
lives, seeking to recover' bodies.

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.

HOW TO FUSE
DEMOCRATS AND HOME RULERS ON 'MAUI. 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.
