Kmtor Mavi News:
kindly spare me a little space in
which to discuss the minority report
of Senator AVhito relative to the
location of tho county f.cat on iVlaui?
Senator White's report says in
part as follows; "It must be remem
bered that the town of Lahuina was
the first in time to hold the seat of
the Second Judicial Circuit ever since
the year 18.V.I, ar.d Lnhaina had the
honor of holding it for a period of
"Wailuku, the next scat of justice,
as far as the Circuit Courtis con
cerned, has been created only
The question naturally suggests
tself as to why the change should
have been made twenty-nine years
ago, and the answer is conclusive of
tho whole matter.
Lahaina, being at onr. time the
endesvous of the winding fleet, at a
time when there were comparatively
few white men on the Islands, it was
natural that it should become the
seat of the government. With the
disappearance of the whaling fleet,
Honolulu snatched the laurels
from the brow of Lahaina, aud be
came the seat of government.
But with the development of the
sugar industry, (say about twenty-
nine years ago), the bulk of the po
pulation shifted from Lahaina to
central and cast, Maui, and now
Lahaina is merely an outlying dis
trict boasting of two sugar planta
tion, while on central Maui there are
eight sugar plantations, together
with at least hrec fourths of the
That is why the Circuit term of
court was held at Wailuku, and thatis
also why the actual county seat of the
Island, together with the residences
of the circuit judge, sheriff and other
hading officials was transferred to
ce Ural Maui.
For years Lahaina has contended
for at least one term of Circuit
Court, and at a great inconvenience
to tho gcncu.l public, this has been
allowed, and might probably still be
allowed, if liie county scat simply
m;ant two brief terms of the Circuit
court each year. But it must be re
membered that when a county seat
is once established, the whole busi
ness of the county must bo trar-
sictcd there, incivased as it will he
bv tho provisions of the bill The
principal county oflicers will bo l c
quired to reside at the county seat
Tn that case tins convenience of the
people at large in the county must
be considered, and as the bulk of
them reside in central and east Maui,
they will never consent to have to
SO to Lahaina, when it bce-mcs
necessary to visit the county seat.
Heretofore the people of ccntrrl
Maui have done little more than
enter good natuie-l protests tt
being compelled to go to Lahama to
attend court once a year, but new
that the county seat fight is tote
made, it is a safe guess that "the
Majority will rule."
Wniluku Waici' System.
Superintendent Bal of the Wailu
ku water works states that there
are at present 150 connections with
the Wailuku and Kahului water
mains, and four more applications
for the first of the coming mouth.
Between the Wailuku depot and the
soda works there are ten more appli
cants who will be supplied as soon as
the main pipe is laid. Application
for pipe has been made, but the gov
ernment has not replied as yet.
Superintendent Bal has requested
permission to employ a man for a
month to look after the grounds at
the reservoir site, plant trues, set
out grass, and tidy up generally, but
was informed that his request could
not be granted just yet. This is a
much needed work.

Maktiwao Teachers Meeting.

noon of this week. The attendence
The study of "Snow-bound was
conducted by Mr. Dowdle. This les
son included the last part of the
poem. It was decided that the Vis
ion of Sir Launfal should be taken up
at the next meeting.
Miss dos Rcis gave an interesting
and suggestive talk on "Songs for
the Primary Room." She recom
mended the use of Mrs. Tucker's
primary songs because the munc of
these is very simple and the words
can be used in connection with nature
studj . She advised most of the songs
be 'learned by rote and that very lit
tle instruction in the tonic sol fa, ex
cept by the use of hand signs, be
given in the lowest grades. Consid
erable discussion ensued. One teach
er present said that in- his teaching
he spends some time on each note of
the scale and that he gives special
attention to tone production and ex
pression. Several others present
objected to this on the ground that too
much technical or mechanical work
would deaden the interest of children
who have as little taste for music as
have many of the pupils in the public
Mr. Crook spoke on the "Use of
Text-books on grammar." He said
that in the highest grades he some
times uses "bwintons language
Lessons" and that he finds this gives
good results. Considerable difference
of opinion was shown' here. Most of
the teachers present were in favor
of abandoning the use of text-books
in grammar, because this study is of
little or no use to most of the pupils
after they leave school.
The programme for the next meet
ing will be as follows:
The Vision of Sir Launfal
(Prelude and Part I.)
Vertical Writing , '
Geography for First Year Pupils
