Can Elect County Boards!)
Republican National Committee
man for Hawaii A. G. M Robertson
at rkoo todny received the following
cable from Delegate Kuoto at Wash
ingon: Hill to eWct Boards ui.der county
government has passed Congress.
j Some few issues ago a corresspondent in the Garden Island
wrote rather derogately of what is known as tne Maui lantana
blight, claiming it had not lived up to its reputation as an exter
minator. When Dr. Raymond first toon charge of Ulupalakun
ranch some years ago he found the lantana slowly but surely
encrouching upon his valuable pasture lands. The Doctor took
pains to obtain something like two sacks of the black blight and
, scattered it broad cast on his ranch and more particularity on the
Kahikiuui track. What at that time was nothing but a jungle of
lautana almost impassable to cattle, let alone horses or man, is
today springing into excellent pasture land. Rex Hitchcock can
vouch for the Maui blight from experience with it on his ranch on
' Molokai as his experience is very similar, to that of Dr, Ravmond.
The lantana blight of Maui is not one bhghftas is commonly sup
posed, but consists of three; the seed, the yellow and the black
blight. What one does not accomplish, one of the other two
does, and even goes so far as to attack and kill the young sprouts
of the second growth.
i: j0 In unity there is strength. When a measure comes up which
will work the most good for the most people why not stand to
.. ..gether as a unit and urge that the measure be carried out. No
J good ever. came from factional differences, and so long as those
differences exist just so long will Wailuku be without needed im-
,, provements. ( Wailuku needs street improvements as well as new
. throughfares,, which while, may not be of any direct material bene
fit to some, will help others and enhance the value of all properties
rti and beautify the town as well. A united pull, a strong pull and if
necessary a long pull will eventually be heard by the admio
stration in Honolulu, no matter how hard of healing it may be so
long as factional differences exist.. It costs less to be a live, wide
awake town, than to be a dead town where the only rumblings
heard are the grumblings of discontent at the slackness of
' ' jCS Richard Pearson Hobson of Merrimac fame is sending out
'literature on ''Why America Should Hold Naval Supremacy," and
' the "Paramount Importance of Immediate Adoption of a. Progres
sive Naval Program which, ''foreshadows a combined movement
i. for the seizure of China, so. the exclusion of the United States,
Great Britain and Japan, a movement that would set the world on
, JJre. vThft balance of, power . .between., these groups is 6o evenly
.... poised that. war. and peace may hinge upon the activity qf America
m naval preparation during the next few years." Lieutenant
. rj Hobson asks for, cooperation to .further, the ( appropriation, of an
adequate sum for new ships at the present session ' pf Congress.
4ixty Million, dollars is the minimum sum asked. '
i XX The Arbor Clubs of Fresno County California, celebrated
Washington's Birthday by planting twenty-one i mile's of Carolina
Populars and Palms of Gilead trees. In April palms will be alter
nated with the trees set out in February. There was talk some
. time ago of Central Maui, through the Improvement Association,
, being likewise beautified. A committee was appointed and the
plan of interesting the school children was approved of, and then
the matter, was allowed to drop. It becomes more and more ap
k parent that the Improvement Association, if they wish to show
results should have a reserve fund to work with. What is the
best way to obtain this fund?
' jSSy House Bill number one, introduced by the County Commis
sion has been printed and had its first reading February 16, 1905.
The act or bill is practically the same as recently published except
." tliat in chapter, VI, section 12 where it names the County officers,
""v4. , It yovfc es for the election of all except the Board of Supervisors
t and that they shall hold office for the term of two years and until
their successors are appointed. , A dispatch has been received
from Delegate Kuhio stating that a bill permitting election Boards
as just passed Congress. It now remains for the Territorial
' ' Legislature to say wheather the Board of Supervisors shall be
elective or appointive. '
Next r-nday is the day of days on the mainland on which all
true and loyal sons of Erin and followers of St. Patrick make
merry. St, Uttrick, so fable states, drove all the snakes of the
:, island into the. pea. Legend represents him as born in Scotland
, aooui me year jyu; was sola as a slave into lrelant while quite a
' lad, and later converting the people to Curistianity. There is
; v some doubt as to what faith St. Patrick embraced, and many de
nominations claim him as having been one of their creed.
