Special 8tp.Bulltla Correspondence
HILO, Sept 6. That County Engjn
eei Edward A. Southworth Is to be of
fered the position of superintendent Of
public works for. the Territory Is the
latest-report to come from Honolulu.
The statement was made by someone
! In, toach with the Inner workings of
th e things governmental In Honolulu
and he believes that it Is almost a cer
tainty that Hawaii's; engineer will
;htve the refusal of the job.
j i "According to the way I make out
. the position at the present time" he
stated -"the Governor ; Is finding; It a
very hard matter to pick out a man
who will- .suit all the factions. The
names1 of several men have been put
UP for the position but up to the pres
ent time it has been found impossible
to settle on any of them for the reason
that different Interests are pulling dif
ferent ways and 3 no qne seems ; to
know lust where they are 'at In the
mean time" Marston Campbell Is hold
ing down the job and the work Is go
ing along Just, the . same as ever de
spite the fact that there is j& great
deal of. opposition to Campbell being
In the position;:" lrS'y-, - y:K' "
i i "Just before I left Honolulu I heard
from good authority ; that 8outhworth
was to be offered .'the position. He is
a man who certainly ; knows his busi
ites . as an engineer ' and; who has
made good In his position as cpunty
engineer for Hawaii; Further than this
there is also the argument In his favor
that he is familiar with the workings
of the department in Honolulu and it
would 'not-te like putting a man': In
Campbell pbsltlon who would have
to go to work and learn all the back
history of ' every little Job in order to
get the greatest efficiency, v - . . '
The news was In a way no news to
Southworth for several of his friends
In Honolulu have been ; after, him to
make a fight for the position.- He has
refused every suggestion,- however.' as
he feels that there is a great deal of
work to be done on Hawaii and that
ho should stay here and see it through
He Is ' also backing Engineer Taylor
for the. position as superintendent of
public works.- : '.;
"If Governor Frear should decide to
offer me 'the position" stated.; Sou th-
worth should of course give the
matter every consideration and should
study the pros and cons of the proposi
tion, with - due deliberation"; At the
same time I am not after the position
and am backing. Joe. Taylor. , O have
been doing this right along and will
not alter now to try and get the posi
tion for mytelf. I look npoh Taylor as
the right man , for - the position and
think that he should have it.
