. :; A Failure
From the inception of this paper,
its editor, who was born und raised
under successful county government,
h:is looked forward to the tune when
each Of the Islands would have county
government, aud when ti.e Polyne
sian race of Hawaii would demon
strate to the world that American in
stitutions and American forms ot
local self government would bear
transplanting to alien soils. True,
the experiment of self government lu
the South American states has not
evolutionized true republican forms
of government, but it was reasonably
believed that here on the Islands,
which are an integral portion of the
United States, and many of whose
best citizens are Americans who have
been trained from birth to a famili
arity with American forms of gov
ernment aud a profound lovo und
respect for them, that the leaven of
self government hud been sufficiently
added, and that it would leaven the
The events of the past few weeks'
however have sadly shattered these
dreums, and a very uninviting reality
ha s been presented, from which. the
people of Mai have fortunately been
rescued by the r.eceut decision of the
Supreme Court. Prior to the meet
ings of (tie political conventions last
fall, the Nkws strongly urged a coali
tion of the best element!, on Maui,
irrespective of raceorpoliticalcreed,
in order that capable men migut be
secured for county officers. This ad
vice was disregarded, and as a nat
ural result the ignorant vote swept
Maui, and a straight slate of home
rulers was elected. The News prom
ised fealty to the new officials so long
as they deserved it, and promised a
rod in pickle for them when they
needed it. But even during then
short reign the jN'ews was compelled
to excoriate them for their blunders
and wrong moves, notably in the
matter of bonds, and in the practical
removals of Judges Coup aud McKay,
to make places for Inferior men.
Other atlionp and threatened ac
tions of our new Board of Supervisors
with reference to taxes and liceuses,
and the adding of long strings of
clerks to each of the county offices,
as well as the combination of the' ' 'solid
three" of the Board of Supervisors
headed by Louis Kookoo, who ig
nored Lyons and Corn well, Kookoo,
Hihioand Ku.uimakaole being the com
bine, had created a genuine feeling
of alarm in the minds of 'those who
desired good and economical govern
ment. But the restoration of the old
order of things during the past few
duys has quieted this feeling and now
Maui is serene aguiu. Had the home
rule element on Maul been content to
admit the truth that its party did
not coutaiu men competent to run
county affairs, und thirt even drafts
on the democratic party from whom
its best officers-elect were drawn
would not suffice, and had they in
sisted on the election of competent
men, irrespective of pcfKtical lines,
county government could have been
made a success.
Consequently the News confesses
with sorrow that it is driven to the
belief that the people are not yet
ready for county government, and
that any further attempt to force it
until the time is ripe will only result
in disastrous consequences.
' County government will aud must
come ultimately, but to bo successful
it must come by degrees as we become
ready for it, with added powers given
us, until a complete (form of coun
ty government, which will be built on
stable foundations, is evolved. Tbe
reasons why this is the best policy
is that, although it was found easy to
establish new counties in the new ter
ritories in tbe United States, where
no prior form of government had pre
vailed, yet here on the Islands a com
plete and crystallized form of govern
ment has formerly existed, on t
which county government is to be
grafted. And the fact the former
government of the Islands has been
monarchical und oligarchic has i)n-
titted the minds of the people for la
free form of government, la which
public officers are public jerynjj-
and uot masters and i;;St as some of

By reference to the "Hy Au'-hor-ily"
in tins isstic, it will be seen Unit
the long wuited for seh wlhonse in
Wailuku is about to materialize
Bids are called for, to lie oprtied
February 1, and as the money for
building the sehoolhouse is ready, the
award will be made and work begun
shortly, probably by the middle or
latter part of February.
Elaborate plans in blue print, also
a voluminous copy of specifications
are in the hands of Mrs. Austin,
school agent at Wailuku, where they
may be seen by prospective bidders.
Judging by the plans submitted the
building will be quite a handsome
structure when completed, well
worthy of n'ailuku, and the lovely
site seleeted will add to its charms.
The bulldiug will face the sea, nnd
will contain eight school rooms and
an assembly room, all on the ground
floor. The front entrance will be in
tho middle ot the frout, through a
handsome porch which opens into a
hallway leading back to the assembly
room. There will also be an entrance
at either end of the building, opeoing
into a hallway which runs across tbe
building, thus dividing each of the
schoolrooms from the others by a
hallway. The schoolrooms will be
large, light and airy, with due atten
tion to arrangement for lights and for
ventilation. New and improved seats
nd desks are to be furnished, so that
each schoolroom will compare favor
ably with any city school in the States.
Washrooms, and hat and cloak rooms
are provided, and water will be piped
into the building.
The assembly room is directly be
hind, and opens into the two rear
schoolrooms, which are to be separ
ated from it by sliding doors which
can when occasion requires, be thrown
open, thus throwing the tvo school
rooms and the assembly room into one
large room, capable of seating sev
eral hundred people. The roof will be
mansard, and the effect of the com
pleted building, viewed from the
front, will be very handsome and
Bids a re called for the construction
of the building in three materials;
rubble, brick and cement, and the
respective bids will determine the
kind of material used. The general
feeling here is that rubble should be
used, for several reasons. In the tii st
place it makes a very handsome and
durable building, impervious to the
weather. In the second place stone
for rubble can be secured in vast
quantities near the site of the school,
thus keeping all the money used in
the construction of the building here.
Brick from tho coast would be ex
pensive, and make a much less sight
ly building. It is quite probable as
well as desirable thut rubble will be
used, pointed with granite trimmings
Death of C. D. Loveland
On Monday evening, between 10
and 11 o'clock, Mr. C. D. Loveland
died suddenly at his residence at

The rest of the family ha J retired,
