The News on several occasions hus heard very favorable
comments upon the police as appointed by the Sheriff nud Board
of Supervisors. They are all picked uion who, from their past
training, know their duty and in knowing it perforin it There Is
less disturbance to be seen or heard to-day than in times past.
Maui police are as efficient and orderly as the County is model.
Sets the If Maui county keeps to the path of economy in
Pace which it has set out, one day the Territory's
bonds will be stowed in its safe and the county living on the in
terest. Seriously, the example Maui affords of securing a sur
plus is one all other counties should follows Advertiser. Sure
Extends a The News welcomes the Eeverend Roland B.
Welcome Dodge to his new field of labor on the island,
and predicts, from the favorable impression which has already gone
abroad, a re-establishing of the foreign church uder the most
auspicious conditions. Mr, Dodge was gratuated from Amherst
College and Hartford Theological Seminary and finished special
studies at Heidelburg and Marburg Universities. To quote the
Friend, ''He brings with him an enthusiasm for missionary enter
prises and expects to do his permanent life work here."
A New Treaty Great Britain and Japan have, so it is re
Signed ported, made a change in their treaty re
lations. While the British Foreign Office refuses to confirm or deny
the report it is believed that the treaty was signed the latter part
of August. The new treaty is believed to be broader in scope in
some respects notably where it recognizes the protectorate by
Japan over Korea.
" In some respects the new treaty contains limitations as
compared with the old treaty. For instance the latter contained a
clause to the effect that in case of a combination of powers against
Great Britain, Japan would be obliged to assist her ally while the
clause in the new treaty only requires the assistance of Japan so
far as British colonies in the Far East and the Pacific are concerned.
The terms of the new treaty, it is said, were fully ngreed upon
before Parliament adjourned, but 't was also agreed tlsVt the offi
cial announcement of its signature and of its full terms should be
deferred until after the conclusion of the Portsmouth conference.'
Must Have At the Board of Education meeting held on
Certificates Sept. first, a resolution was introduced the
purport of which is that in the future only teachers holding cer
tificates will be employed. This is a move in the right direction.
The cost of educating the children of the territory has been con
siderably more per child than anywhere on the mainland. Then
again the stringent tiires of two years ago, when the territory was
short of funds and forced reductions were made in all depart
ments, caused the Board of Education to lose some few good
teachers who would not stand the reduction. Since the adminis
tration of Superintendent Davis and the new Board of Commis
sioners the department is being placed on a business basis and
and it is to be hoped that the methods to be employed will have a
tendency to enhance the value of the school education and lessen
the cost very materially over that of former times. The Board of
Education never makes a mistake in paying a good remuneration
to proficient teachers.
Walluku's Cannot the Supervisors find it in their juris-
Sidewalks diction to order the old, worn out, antiquated
sidewalks of Wailuku torn up and replaced with a walk (board If
necessary but properly laid) whereby people can feel that they are
not compelled to take to the street for safety.
If this part of the public improvements come under the head of
the road board special deposit there is, or was, on August 31st,
over three thousand dollars on deposit in the local bank. As the
walks are repaired now they are only temporary and very un
couth, and no sooner are they fixed (?) in one place than another
spring board appears in another place, so that pedestrians never
know wnen or wnere they are to come into contact with these
"spring" boards and either stub their foot against a protruding
nail or turn an ankle. Directly opposite the News office and on
the sidewalk in front of the Windsor Hotel one of these spring
boards has held undisputed right for a full week, to the discom
fort of pedestrians who were unfortunate enough to step upon it.
So far no serious accident has happened at this particular point,
but it is always the unexpected that happens. Market street is if
anything worse than Main or High streets.
Mastering Act 46 of the Session Laws 1905, says; "No per
A I rade son shall engago in the business of horse shoer
or farrier FOR HIRE without first having a license to do so as
provided herein After explaining the method of applying
ior a license irom tne treasurer, the act says that "the High
bnenn or tstienn snail examine the applicant to determine
whether he is a suitable person to carry on the trade of horse
shoer or farrier FOR HIRE." Of Mxtyfour asiatic applicants who
applied for a license on the island of Ouhu and were asked to give
a practical demonstration or their ability to shoe a horse only
seven successfully passed the test. Owners who are desirous of
salng a dollar or so on a set of shoes have been in the habit of
having their horses shod by theso impracticable artisans with the
' result that in time their animals become incapacitated for the
labor required, and wonder what can be the matter. Sc far on
Maui only on9 applicant lias gone through the ordeal and after
working three hours to make one shoe he was stopped as it was
useless for him to devote any further time to making a misfit
which would have more than lamed the animal forced to wear it.
