declined 10 vacate or turn over the
properly until he received further
advice from the Attorney General,
as to what he should do.
Sheriff Baldwin however summon
ed all of his old police force, went to
the sheriff's office, and practically
took possession. In the meantime
the Board of Supervisors met at the
courthouse, and Sheriff White laid
the matter before them. They ful.y
discussed the situation, and took the
position that as uither they nor the
sheriff lias received any official com
munication on the subject, that it
would be proper for Sheriff White to
hold his position until officially not!

and requested to withhold action un

this however, staling that his in

were positive and left him no altern
alive in the matter.
After much deliberation the Boar
adopted a resolution substantially in
etructing Sheriff White to hold his
office until officially notified to the
contrary. Sheriff Baldwin was mvlt
ed before the Board, informed of th
resolution, and asked what course he
proposed to take iu tho matter. He
replied that there was absolutely on
course for him to take in the matte

orders of High Sheriff Brown. He
added however that while he cou'
not recognize White us sheriff, still

Mr. C. C. Conradt, who recently
purchased tho lease of Kahoolawe
together with all the live stock on the
island', including 5,000 sheep, GO head
of cattle and a small band of horsey
has assumed active control of the
property, and will at once proceed to
make it an important factor in the
food supply of Maui.
forty-one years ago, theislaud was
leased to Mr. Allen, the father of the
present Mr. W. C. Allen of Honolu.u
for a term of fitly years at an annual
rental of $250 per year, hence the
lease purchased by Mr. Conradt hr.s
uine years yet to run. However, up
on purchasing the lease Mr. Conradt
at once opened negotiations with the
government for" an extension, iu fur
therance of which object a number of
government officials visited the islaud
last Saturday, on board the Iroquois,
and it is probable that Mr. Conradt
and the government will reach an
amicable agreement in the matter.
Mr. Conradt, who was in Wailuku
this week, favored the News with an
interesting interview concerning his
future plai:s for the development of
his property. He has already coi -tracted
wit'.i two butcher shops m
Wailuku and the butcher shop in
Puunene, to deliver a supply of mut
ton every Vwo weeks, the first ship
ment of which arrived yesterday.
Mr. Conradt is propar'mg tj fence
o!T the island into two or three large
pastures, and will confine his sheep in
one pasture till iar eaten clean, thus
giving the grass in the other pastures
time to grow. He is also experiment
ing in new grasses."
In addition to thii, Mr. Conradt is
preparing, to furnish Maui with fresh
liah. At .iiC.ent he has w'j,.r:fc.-cd a
