It was a day to be remembered on Maui when Governor Car
ter and his party '.stepped on shore at Lahaina for the purpose of
travelling over Maui and familiarizing themselves with our needs.
Maui has suffered long and in silence for many things which were
needed to develop the Island. The revenues which have hereto
fore been raised on Maui would have done this, if they had not
been diverted to IIouolulu and the other islands, and the fullness
of time has arrived for us to receive our own again. A spirit of
fairness in the matter is now being exhibited by the authorities in
Honolulu, and with the public improvements which are being in
augurated, there will be a general development. Koads will bo open
ed up to valuable but now inaccessible lands. Travel will now flow
about the island in vehicles instead of on mule back over almost
impassable trails. Other improvements for which appropriations
have been made, and for which the money is lying idle in llonolu
u, w ill be taken up, so that before this year has passed a much
better condition of affairs will exist on Maui.
It seems hard to believe that there should be even one voter
on Maui who honestly believes that Notley would do us any good uas been very marked
in congress. Of course there is a political point from which to ot tha ioeai branch o! the

the greatest ease. 'Leprolin' is made
on somewhat similar lines to those
first employed by Professor Koch in
the manufacture of tuberculin. Over
100 cases of leprosy are now being
treated in Burma by injections
of this substance, and the treatment
is also being tried in 30 different
places in India. Already four cases

view the matter but the balk of the voters on Maui should be more
interested in sending a man to congress who can do something for
' us than in fooling with politics. There may be some excuse for
Iaukea obtaining a scattering Maui vote, and not on the point of
merit either, for Delegate Kuhio is far and away the better man of
the two, but to the average man who is not blinded by prejudice or
politics it does certainly seem that any one who is silly enough to
vote for Notley should bo gently and kindly hammered with a club.
