HOW; TO VOTE.
The success or failure of county
government on Maui hinges largelv
on the result of next week's election,
and for that reason the News offer
a few suggestions without any refer
ence to politics whatever, but based
solely on th personal qualifications
of the candidates for tho various of
The most important and responsi
ble ofilre that of supervisor, and
too much care cannot be exercised
in their choice. In tho judgment of
the News, the ablest ni;m on either
ticket i W. F. Poue and failure to
elect him would bo little short of
caliimity. He tins ripe business ex
perience and is an honest, square
man, whose advice and counsel will
prove invaluable. T. H. Lyons of
Wailuku is also a needed man on the
board not only on account of his abil
ity, but also because he is a repre
sentative Wailuku man. A. N. Hiv-
selden of Lahalna is a third man who
should be elected, and with these
three men on the board, the county
would have nothing to fear from the
other two, even if poor old Ilihio
should happen to scratch in. In this
connection, it would only be fair to
give Moloitai representation on the
board by the election of T. T. Meyer,
who would unquestionable make a
good supervisor. Either W. H. Corn
well, Jr. or J. K. Josepa of Hana
would make a good fifth man.
For sheriff, the fight is between L
M. Baldwin and Billy White of La
hftina, and the News believes that
the simple mention of this fact will
be a sufficient guide to the voters of
Judge W. A. McKay and L. R
Crook are contestants for the audi
torship, with this advantage in favor
of Judge McKay that he Is a man of
ripe experience: which fact may be
of weight as against his young oppo
nent. . .
F. Wittro.ik and Pia Cockett,both
of whom are good, honest, squaro
men are named for treasurer; It is
generally claimed that of the two
Mr. Wittrock is better fitted by
education and experience to fill the
W. T. Robinson and D. K. Kahau
lelio are opposing candidates for tax
assessor, and whiU Mr. Kahaulelio is
a very clever, urbane gentleman,
still the voters of Maui well know
that Mr. Robinson is by experience
the much better fitted man of the
two, and doubtless will elect him.
Hon. John Richardson of Lahalna
and Deputy Attorney-General N. V7,
Aluli are 'rival candidates for the
District Attorneyship. Mr. Richard
son is a man of ability and ripe ex
perience but "Noa Liihi" is making
a brilliant fight, and it looks at pros
ent writing as if he will win out with
n good majority.
D. H. Kahaulelio, the flippity-flop
pity home ruler thinks be is running
against D.avid Morton for county
clerk, but that is only a joke. David
will be elected.
J. K. Kahookr.le also has au idea
that he is running 'against , Hugh
Howdll for surveyor. Another joke,
Howell is making the livest kind of a
fight, and is getting there with both
By running over the above list it
will be seen that there are plenty
of good men running to fill all the of
hoes, and if the best men are not
elected, the voters of Maui must
bear the blame, '
About the Ballots.
It is believed that the preparations
made for the . first county election
are so thorough and complete that
the mass of the voters will be more
thun pleased.' For instance, each pre
cinct is provided with six rubber
stamps, each bearing a cross mark
so that the voter can mark his ballot
either with pencil or 6tamp as he
pleases. 1 This should prevent the
throwing out of many ballots, . which
was a great source of complaint on
Hawaii at the legislative election of
1902. Another change is that the
ballots will be numbered, a number
being on the stub trom which the bal
lot is torn ana tne same number ap
pearing on the back of the ballot,
This latter number is porforated and
must be torn off the ballot when it is
handed to the Inspector by the voter
A third point is that, when Mr. Car
ter was in San Francisco, on bis way
it,ast, ne ordered a special paper
bearing a exclusive water mark. A
certain quantity of this paper was
turned out at the mill and every
sheet of it came to Honolulu. It has
been used lapriutng,botlu the reg
ular and blauk ballots. Should any
attempt be made to vote a frau ju
lent ballot, that has been marked in
advance, the inspectors can prompt
iy dett-ct the fraud by holding the
paper to the light as the water mark
appears in three different places on
nc-li ballot. In this way it is hoped
to have an honest vote and it is up to
the lnpcctoi s to to mxkr an honest

The Court: "Well, I will order

The Grand Jury thereupon with
drew, and at the opening of court
on Wednesday morning, presented
the following report.
To the Hon. J. W. Kalua, Presid
ing Judge, Circuit Court, 2nd Judicial
Circuit,'-Territory of Hawaii.
"Acting under the instructions re
ceived from Your Honorable Court
the Grand Jury has started in to in

partments, but owing to the sum

we are unable to make a report upon

demand to the Grand Jury to make
a final report at 9:30 this morning;
we find ourselves totally unable to

from the fact that we have not had
sufficient time at our disposal to fin
ish our investigations. . , 1
"It has pleased the Court to make a
direct accusation against this Grand
Jury, that they are trying to prosti

political purposes. To this accusation
we wish to make a most emphatic de

this Grand Jury exercised its power
in auy political matter.
"Your Honor has seen fit to make a
somewhat personal matter in regard
to the investigation of your own court,
but we cau assure you that there are
very strong grounds for tbe action
taken by the Grand Jury, end such
grounds still exist, but as formerly
stated, you have limited our time, so
that we are totally unable to finish
our investigations in this matter."
The Court ordered the report filed,
and took half an hour's recess, at the
expiration of which time the Grand
Jury were called, and the Court de
livered to them the following instruc
tions and order.
