Circuit Tho October Term of thoCircuit Court of tho second
Court circuit which lias just closed was tho first session
hold tit Lahaina under Ihc new law passed by the last session of
the Legislature, whic;i requires that tho Oct. term of each year
shall be held at Lahaina. That is, no doubt a great treat for that
historic place, which was in former days tho foremost town on
Maui, and she even dared to vio with Honolulu along tho line of
winning commercial honors. We love and venerate Lahaina for
what she has been, and for what she is to-day. Her c.tizens of this
day, composed as Ihey are of many nationalities, still offer to the
stranger who chances to come within her gates, that rare and
peculiar kindness for which the Hawaiiaiis of former days will ever
bo re me -ii bored by those who chanced to visit these Islands. In
vie w of tho above f;icts, we are not inclined in any way to take
from tho people of Lrthaina this
have seen tit to give them, especially so, not so long as vo have a
corps nf Court of.kials who knojvhow to expedite their court affairs
with as much good sound sense and aconomy, as was shown at the
term which has just closed. Prominent among this porsonel of
officials who have done so well i9 the name of J udgo A. N. Kepoi
kai. who by his sound judgement and keen souse of duty suc
ceeded in doing in less than two weeks, what might havo taken a full
month, in so doing ho has saved the Territory anl County hund
reds of dollars.
One Weeks The last issue of tho Maui News was the
Experience product of the first efforts of the present
editor in news paper work and tho comment and suggestions
in ado by our friends are so varied that we give them herewith.
One of the prominent residents of town good naturedly took us to
task for taking up so much space with the article on Wuialuu
Plantation. The second party met happened to be a he'd luna
who paid us u complinieni with the statement t hat there was more
of interest in tho News than any former issuo ho had seen and
suggested that all plantation men would be glad to get informa
tion on plantation matters such as the report on Waialua and
Stated further that personals and locals be reduced to the mini
mum. Thi-third business man met suggested that the ladles
would be pleased to have more locals and personal iiems than had
appeared in the past. From this it appears that no article nor
a ;t of articles can be of interest to all nor is it tho part of wisdom
t-. attempt l ho impossible. What we well attempt however is to
strivo to publish surne articles each week of interest to each of our
subscribers and constantly work for the public good.
Death ot That tho Independent should at last
The Independent give up the fight that it has so per
sistency waged for the past ten years cau be no surprise to those
who havo studied tr.o change of thought that has come over the
people since annexation and particularly since all voters have been
called to the polls u assist in forming u government more Ameri
can thuu previoas'y existed. The voting population are thinking
more than in l ho past and are swayed cow by public welfare more
than by prejudice which too often was the ail powerful influence in
the past. This is a healthy sign and points conclusively to a
healthier and better condition iu tho future.
The Tax In the decision of the Supremo Court on the in
Case come tax case the court may havo decided strictly
withiu the law but nothing short of a legislative amendment, to this
statute will be tolerated by the pjoplo who aro being robbed by
an injust law for the benefit of Oahu. We would probably accept
nil of Oubu's tax money if the law gave it to us but there is no
moti j ist;c i i 1 giviag to O ihu tho insj.n i tax in may of our loo tl

SAN FRANCISCO, November 2 -
United States Loral Inspectors
Bolles and Bulger handftd down a de
cisioti yesterday suspending for six
months the license of Pilot C. B.
Johnson who was in charge of the
steamship Alameda on September 30
of this year, when she stranded at
Fort Poiut. The State Board of
Pilot Commissioners has suspended
Johnson's State license for four
months. Both sentences will run
consecutively, so that the suspension
will cover the period of six months
only. Id summing up their conclusious,
Inspectors Bolles and Bulger say:
After a careful consideration of the
evidence taken iu this case, wc are
satisfied that (Johnson was negligent
and unskillful In navigating the
steamship Alameda on September 30
last in not keeping better run of the
rccoi d of the vessel; and hi failing to
make notes of the time and distance
of points of departure; and also, in
his 1 rusting entir.ely to hearing Lime
Point whistle and to "his belief that
the for; would not last long.
For reason of negligence and un
killfu!ness as above mentioned on the
part of Pilot C. B. Johnson we have
this date suspended his license as
master and pilot of steam vessels for
the period of six months.
Froic the evidence we are of the
opinion that the fog signal at Fort
Point was sounding before the Ala
meda stranded and that tho fog
signal at Lime Point was not heard
until after the vessel had stranded
Taking the time and course steered
as given by Pilot Johnson, and tracing
them baok from where the vessel
stranded, we are satisfied that the
steamer could not have been on this
day nearer than three fourths of a
mile from Lime Point, or the north
In awarding this term of suspension
we take into consideration the miti
gating circumstances that the Lime
Point whistle was not sounded on this
occasion until 11:45 a. m. (as shown
by the official log of that station), the
time the Alameda stranded, and to
the fact that the steamer was saved
Wo exonerate Captain Thomas
Dow dell from blame in connection
with this casualty for the reason
that the navigating of the steamer
at the time she stranded was in the
sole charge of Pilot C. B Johnson.
ihe damage to the Alameda is
estimated at $80,000.
A New Dish.
Some days ago a luna on one of
the plantations nith a party of friends
spent a day up one of the many
pretty valleys rf west Maui.
The luna brought home many
beautiful maiden hair ferns which he
gave to his Japanese cook with in
structions to him to plant them in
pots. The Jap. not knowing of but
o.ie kind of pot proceeded to prepare
the ferns in true Japanese style and
served them up all nicely cooked. It
is reported that the luna has decid
ed ti get married. The doctors
however have not reported the cook
ut of danger.

gun a system of tree planting with
the intention of making it a per
maneut one. A nursery is main
tained near the residence of Supt.
W. R. Filler and at this time two
Thousand Cocoanut trc-es are ready

well suited to tho "rowing of palm
trees and every etfort will be made
to make Kahului one of the prettiest
laces in the islands.'
After the building of the break
water Kahului will have as fine a
harbor as any and as ninteuths of
tho freight of the island passes
through this harbor each year it is
certain that Kahului has a bright
future. Let the good work continue.
