Income Soothm 1 of Act . 1)3 says : Fitly, perron I um of the
TaxeH total amount of laxos on incomes,
COLLECTED, IN EACH COUNTY, shall l j.mUI hy tho housurer
of tho Territory of Hawaii to the treasurer of "SUCH COUNTY."
Section 1S8- of tho Session Lvs of l!H)j say in spooking of Corp

in defining the amounts! of individual leuiirus and of corporations
and how tin? returns are to he made roads that the returns nre to
he made "l'O THE ASSKSSOll OF THE DIVISION IN WHICH
SUCH PKIWONS Oil COUPOUATIONS IIESIDE, LOCATE Oil
DO li US I NESS." No wonder that Oahu C.iunty stands pat with
thd administration, for as the matter of income tax now stands
taxes boi in? paid by tho agents of the plantations in Honolulu, Oahu
County gets the tifty percentuiu of the tax which rightfully should go
to the county in WHICH THE KETUKXS AUG MADE TO THE
DIVISION ASSESSOR AND IN WHICH THE INDIVIDUAL Oil
CORPORATIONS RESIDE LOCATE Oil DO BUSINESS. Should
the plantations OPERATED AND LOCATED ON MAUI, change
their office from Honolulu to some town, berg or Keawu grove on
Maui would Oahu County still claim their tifty percentum? Should
Waialua, Oahu or other plantations LOCATED AND OPERATED
ON OAHU establish their oftices on Maui, would Oahu be willing
that Maui County should collect from the territory the fifty per
centum? This looks very much like being a question of "it makes a
difference whose foot the shoe pinches."
Lord Curzon's The resignation of the Lord Curzon as Vice
Resignation roy and Governor-General of India was ac
corded more than usual attention by the American press the last
three weeks. The people of the United States have a peculiar in
terest in this remarkable man and feel almost personally attached
to him because, by his marriage with Mary Victoria Leiter, of Chi
cago, he placed a daughter of America upon a viceregal throne
The resignation, announced on August 20, was offered and accepted
on account of a radical and irreconcilable difference of opinion be
tween the Viceroy and General Kitchener as to the new scheme for
army administration in India, the General being supported by the
home government. The conflict between these two men "is the
old one bttwjen civilian and professional domination of military, aff
airs," The Brooklyn Eagle, explains the situation as follows:
"The direction of affairs in India is vested in a viceroy who
governs with the assistance of a council. One member of the
council is the viceroy's adviser and mouthpiece in regard to
military affairs. Hitherto that member has had the power to veto
the plans of the commander-in-chief of the army, except when the
army was actually engaged in hostilities. No scheme of reorgan
ization, retrenchment, or readjustment could be carried out when
he stood in the way. Lord Kitchener assumed the post of commander-in-chief
shortly after the close of the war in South Africa.
He is acknowleged to have a genius for organization greater than
that possessed by any other English soldier since the days of the
Duke of Wellington. He went to India with very definite plans.
He insisted that those plans, providing for the remodeling of the
army system, should be sanctioned by the victory and his council.
Futhermore, he demanded that the commander-in-chief should be
come the military member of the council, thus ending the system
that left the executive head of the army constantly liable to the in
terference of an officer of inferior military rank. The Secretary
of State for India sustained Kitcnener, and Lord Curzon sent in
Take To . For the benefit of the walking public the News
The Street would warn all who are compelled to use Wailu
ku's sidewalks of their dangerous condition. They are now at a
stage where condemnation proceedings would be in order. Those
who are forced to go back and forth afcer sun down will find that
the walkiag in the street will be fully as even and the predestrian
will have the satisfaction cf know that there are no loose boards
to give way under foot. As long as it is the intention to have side
walks in Wailuku, lets hare substantial ones, properly construct
ed, and not traps to turn an ankle or break a limb. Public safety
demands that some radical measure be taken at once to rebuild the
sidewalks otherwise property owners and Maui County will have
a joint damuge suit on their hands.

Klhel Comment is mad in the Honolulu papers that the
Road Kihei road is not being constructed so as to giVe per

road is not as wide or of as high a grade as might be desired, but
with the appropriation it is all that could be expected and is a very
decided improvement over the old sand and mud flat trail which in
many places was dangerous to life. Possibly the next legislature
may appropriate sufficient additional funds to widen and raiso the

a distant city because he offers you a
better and cheaper quality of work,
tell him you have a printing office at
your home where you expect to de
rive the patronage that supports
your own business; and that you
must patronize heme people on the
same ground that you ask them for
their trade. Tell him that if you
send away from town for what little
printing you use because you can
get cheaper and better work, people
might conclude to follow your exam
ple in buying their merchandise,
thinking that if you can get cheaper
and better printing by sending to
the cities, so may they get cheaper
and better merchandise. Tell him
that If people generally should follow
the example he asks you to set before
them, your town would go off the
map as a trading point. T. I! him
