County There seems to
Finances people of. Honolulu, that ; Maul is overburdened
with cash and that the county supervisors are at a loss to know to
what use to out the money. " This is anything but true. If the law
had been justly made by which all income tares should be paid
from corporations in the counties in which they earn their incomes
' we would ha ve enough mouey" to pay adequate .salaries and make
much needed improvements in various matters of public interest.
As it is all taxes collected td November 30tb including road taxes
amount to one llundred and eighteen thousand. Dollars . while the
amount of cash on hand Tin the treasury unexpended was only ofne
thousand Dallars on that date out of which the current expenses
for the month of November must come which will leav9 a balance
of ahnut Four Thousand Dollars.

' As the road is one of the improvements' that the. people of cen

County of Maui to do is to step into the breach and help out with
sufficient funds to carry out this much needed piece of work. ' All

One of the most successful meetings ever, held on. Maui. was had
at Paia this week and good results snouid follow. , bometime ago
the executive committee very wisely asked the writer to give the
, teachers a talk an the best method of obtaining an increase of sala
ries. After some weeks of hard study on the subject ,'we decided
to give them a practical illustrationof what ', they' wanted instead
of a theory. Which accounts for our failure to attend in person

The funny part of the matter was that t our efforts were not
appreciated and we came in for a good round scoring for not being

(The New Road In the selection ofj Frank, Sommerfeld as
Supervisor the road supervisor' for the '.Wailuku ; Dis-
trict the county Supervisors made a choice tha will be satisfactory
, to all. ' : -
" ' Mr. Sommerfeld has had many years experience as overseer
on the various plantations and was recently head tuna at Waihee
for the Wailuku Sugar Co. " " '
For some months past he has been foreman on; the. Kehei road
: for J. Duggen since which time he has filled the place temporarily
that he has just been appointed to. i He is a capable . man strictly
honest and as be is a Wailuku Man and has the unanimous endorse
ment of the seventh precienctclub he should be satisfactory to all.
In a recent issue of the evening Bulletin appears a correspon
dence from Wailuku attacking Mrs. Ella L. Austin, the rewly
appointed principal of the Waihee School,' giving as a reason for
the dislike of the teacher indefinite reflections on the Lady's lute
husband H. Z. Austin who has been away from Maui. some twelve
or fifteen years.
, It seems to us that an attack of this kind will only tend to for
tify the teachers position . for it will tend lo discredit ' any
further reason for her removal that the people may have. If j any
teacher is not doing bis dutj let an investigation' be,' made' but in
the case of Mrs. .Austin who has taught here for so many years
