The road from WailuKu to Waihee
was seriously damaged by last week's
storm, aud Road Supervisor D. Quill,
yit'a a force of men worked all day

held ou Monday evening, with a large
aud enthusiat tic attendance, Coiriinit

i Next Thursday will be u gala day
! in Wailuku. Tho K. of P. Hall is
'j now ready for the dedication exer-
cises, and as Merger's Hand will be
ti here, a very large attendance of
visitors from all parts of tho Island
may be expected.
Supt. R. W. Filler of the K. R. R.
Co. has adopted a number of re
forms in the subordinate management
of the large business under his con
trol by which ail economical reduction
lias been made iu tho number of em
ployes, and the etliclency of the ser
vice Las been increased.
Mr. W. S. Mounteastle, conductor
of the K. II, It. drove to Paia last
Saturday evening with a party of
frieuds. On their return about mid
night the rig stuck in tho mud near
Spreckelsville, compelling the party
to. camp cut all night, reaching Kiy
iiului ou I'jot at 7;30 Suhday mottling.
A Slight Blaze. '
On Monday afternoon, there was
a smalt lire in the residence of An
tone Borba, over his store on Market
One of the little children was evi
dently amusing himself with matches,
and set fire to the mnjuito netting
in one of the bedrooms. Seeing the
bla.e, he ran down stairs crying,
and the alarm was at, once Liven.
Hushing up staiis, it was found that
the bid has caught ' lire, and the
paper on the wail was blazing on
all four sides of the rc.;,i :uh1 on the
ceiling. Oilicer Manuel Paresa, who
happened to be on duty near the
store, soon organized a bucket brig
ade, and in a few minutes the fire
was under control, and was readily
extinguished, not however before the
bed, the bureau, other furniture and
clothing were ruined by the fire. It
was at first thought that there would
be considerable 1 jss by damage from
water to the goo Is down stairs in
the store, but fortunately tho fire
was located directly over the crock
ery and hardware, so that no praticu
lar damage was done. Mi. Borba
estimates the entire damage at $3(10.
It is rumored that an individual
will, in the near future, apply for a
retail liquor license of light wine and
beer for Huelo. Should this license
be granted what an immoral effect
it will have upon a people, cheifly
Hawaiians, who are noted for almost
abstinent indulgence in alcoholic
liquids. It is truo that they are
somewhat addicted to the habit of
drinking home-made fermented
liquors, but owing to their isolation
and difficult transportation have al
most abstained from drinking import
ed alcoholic liquors.
The writer during two years rcsid
ence in Huelo has" never seen an in.
toxicated person on the streets, nor
any arrests from drunkenness.
Now that schools are required to
teach the evil effects of alcoholic
drinks Huelo and other such isolated
places together with the co-operation
of the parents have a good op
portunity to bring up a (feneration
free from intemperate habits.
It is to be hoped that Huelo citizens
will make a vigorous effort to pre
vent the license being granted!"
Mr. H. Bissen who for fifteen years
has been employed as a locomotive
engineer in Sprecklesville has opened
a general merchandise store.
The native women in Huelo are
very industrious. As one travels
along, he may see them doing many
kinds of field work, and if he should
call at the mill will be surprised to see
tho busy merry workers carrying
armfuls of cane to the cane-carrier.

Desertion No Crjme -
An important ruling was made by
Judge Kalua this week touching the
matter of punishing by imprisonment
one who desert3 husband or wife.
The case arose between a Japanese
husband and wife in Lahaina. The
wife had deserted tho husband, who
had her arrested, aud on being ar
raigned before Judge Kahaulelio, re
fused to return to her husband,
whereupon the judge sentenced her
to one year's imprisonment.
Attorney Coke of Wailuku brought
a writ of error before the Circuit
Court on the woman's behalf.and the
case was argued last Wednesday
morniug. Attorney Coke held that
marriage being a civil contract, de
sertion was merely a breach of civil
contract, and that since the consti
tution of the Urited States arrived
on Maui, it has beeu an illegal pro
ceeding to imprison for desertion, as
it violates Article 13 of tho consti
tution y'Whith provides that there
shall be no shivery or involuntary
servitude except as punishment for
Attorney Aluli, on behalf of Judge
KahtMilelio. objected to the form of
proceeding, and argued that habeas
corpus and uot writ of error was the
1 method of bringing the case before
the Circuit Court.
Judge Kalun held that writ of er
ror, and not habeas corpus was the
proper method of procedure, in the
case in question, aud then proceeded
to decide the case, holding that the
contention of Attorney Cone was
sound law, and that under the consti
tution of the United States, there can
be no such thing as imprisonment for
tho violation of a civil cn.itraet.
Wherefore he granted the petition
anc. ordered the woman discharged.
This will pat an end to arrests for
desertion, as under JuJge Li' hut's
decision, district magistrates have
no authority to imprison a diverting
wife or husband.
One View Of It.
Editor Maui News:
I have perused your various arti
cles written witti Hie intention of
arousing our Wailuku citizens to such
a pilch of enthusiasm that macada
mized streets will be forthcoming in
tho near future. Your intentions
are laudable, but upou reading your
last editorial, 1 am reminded of the
remarks made by Mr. Djoley, who
says, '"hot air is cheap, but it takes
oatstomaKd the mare go." Now,
Mr. Editor, where are tho "oats"
coming from? You calmly assure the
public that funds are available, and
that the prison labor can be utilized.
It is quite evident you have not post
ed yourself. There are not sufficient
funds for the Wailuku Road Board
to repair all the roads uuder their
jurisdiction that were damaged by
the late storm, and keep them in
order during the next six months.
As to prison labor, yes, they might
be put to macadamizing the streets.
At present there are two prisoners.
Let us call a meeting, aud ask the
Sheriff to put these two lonely pris
oners at work nueadauvzing, our
grand-children might live to see the
work completed. I believe I am safe
in saying, thei'e is no one in our town
as much interested iu seeing the
streets macadamized, asnvjself, but
I know they cannot well be done with
the money that the Road Board have
at their disposal, unless all the roads
throughout the District are neglect
ed. There are other tax payers be
sides those of Wailuku that have to
bo considered; they must have their
roads repaired, and cannot in justice
be sacrificed because we want our
streets macadamized. I think the
best way for the citizens of Wailuku
to act is, when the time arrives, to
ask the next Legislature for an ap
propriation to macadamize our
streets; it successful iu getting the
money, the Road Board, I believe,
will only be too happy to keep the
rock crusher hunming. In the mean
time, let the citizens who cannot
wait, be more practicable. Instead
of meeting aud indulging in "hot air,''
let them come forward with hard
cash, sufficient for tho work, and
take the chances of a Territorial
Legislature to appropriate a suffi
cient sum to reimburse them. Should
the Legislature fail to reimburse
them, would they not get value re
ceived, knowing that they would go
down to posterity as public spirited
citizens, who had tho unbounded
gratitude of the community iu which
in which they reside?
