MISSES THE POIfs't.
The Maul News has succeeded in
boxing the county government "wtn
puss, bhortly after county lawEfail-
ure was made known on Mafti the
News remarked: "It is a source qf
koen regret to the Nevn that thetrfll
wis found fatally defective, for ttr.s
paper has always advocated county
eovernment." One. week later the
News find itself "forced to the con
elusion Ihut such a government 011
Muui nt the present time and under
present conditions would inevitably
have resulted In disaster both to the
Koverring powers and to those gov
erned." Under the' circumstances
the later conclusion appears decidedly
' Possibly the Bulletin man, if he had
not been abnoimally anxious for
county government, whether for our
wi al or woe, would not havo missed
the spirit of the News article above
criticised. Any fair minded reader of
the News iarticle will admit that it
was not county government in the
abstract that was condemned, but
rather the county government as it
was and threatened further tobeud
ministered on Maui, by those iuio
whose hands it has fallen.
Had Maui followed the alleged cor
rupt practices of Ouhu hi counting
returns, we too, might have counted
in enough republicans to have made
county government a safe experiment
on Maui, ' ' Had there been a fair
count in Honolulu, it is claimed that
Oahu would have been as completely
home rule as MaHii. And in that case
it is curious to tionject uro whether or
not the Bulletin itself would have
beeu as anxious for county govern
ment as it now professes to be.
County government must and will
come on the Islands when we hava
proven ourselves ready for it, but it
is a sad and solemn truth that County
government exclusively in the hands
of the home rulers at the preseut
time would simply drag ruin at its
Had the better element of whites and
Hawaiians on Maui agreed to come
together last fall and elect safe and
conservative nie'd for our county of
fic'erii; county gdvernment could have
been made a success. And until this
Undone county government will fly
the danger signal. "
, Let Congi'os's by all means pass a
county bill for us", but let it provide
that;-the Boards of Supervisors of
each pounty be fcppVmted by the gbv
ernor, and make the minor officers
elective. Later When the machinery
of county government begins running
all right,, let the county law be so
amended as to allow us to elect two
of the five supervisors the governor
a p poin ling . the .1ft a jori ty . La te r s till
further amend the law, allowing us to
elect ,tha, majority and the governor
to appoint the minority of our Boards
of Supervisors. . .Arid If the elected
majority of the Board prove a success,-
then, -and nqt until then, -should
the counties bo allowed to elect full
Boards of Supervisors.
Match Rac6 Postponed.

Mr. D. L. Meyer, the indefatigable
secretary of the Maui Racing Asso
ciation, has recently been in correa'
pondence with several horsemen on
the subject of a race meeting on Maui;
July 4, and has received much eneou
rogement. The following tetter from
Hilo, which Mr. Meyer kindly-permits
the News to publish gives a good
indication of what will bo in store for
race lovers at Spreckels Park ou the
Fourth of July.
D. L. Meyer, .
I have recently heard that your
Club anticipate giving a swell meet
ing in July. If this is a fact, youcan
depend on Mr. O'Rouke ond myself
to be present with ct least 4 horses.
We will go tc-Hoholulu for June
11th and thencome right on to Maui.
W will have some new horses from
the Coast ond'expect to take up some
green Hawaiian bred horses. Our
raeet'ng here on New Year's was
fairly successful, the 'weather, for
all ut two days before "was wet, but
on that day was pretty line, the races
was moJeratc, People are getting
tired of seeing the same ''plugs" run
ping year after year. What Is re
quired are new horses, horses like
Weller, Curter Harrison, DiVie Land,
Racine Murphy, and a lots rif "has
bcens" do not attract a crowd.
If ycu people give good purse's you
'may depend on having some horses
from Hi!o. We will eixleavor to get
two boys from Frisco. .
Would be glad to hear from you at
your earliest convenience. Kind re
gards from Mr.' O'Rouke and myse'f.

Ex-Supervisror Lucas, now on
Maui, says that nine days in office
should be enough to satify any reason
able man for his lifetime.
Governor Carter and Treasurer
Kepoikai are on the big island doing
things and Maui is looking with long
ing eyes for their arrival here.
"Lunakanawai" was the winning
word during the recent administra
tion. Probably "makai" will be the
word under Sheriff Baldwin's reign.
The News recognizes the elements
of American self government, but it
also recognizes that it requires
Americans to run it, just the same'.
It seems sure now that Wailuku is
about to get its long waited for school
house, and that it will' be built of
rubble or rustic stone.
Say.Treasurer Kepoikai,if Geordie
Carter won't let you play in his back
yard any more, come back to Maui,
and you may have a toy balloon la
beled "Circuit Court."
It is time for the Maui boys to be
