The MAUI NEWS wishes its readers a Merry Christ
mas and a Happy New Year.
A progressive A spirit of progressiveness prevades the
Town air at Kahului and in her unostentatious
way she has made rapid strides in the past and has decided upon
plans for the future that will in a few years make Kahului the
metropolis of Maui. With the natural advantage of the best harbor
on the island, with all the large plantations back of her save one
and with the key to practically all the shipping from East and
central Maui, she occupies a unique position. The harbor h;is
been surveyed at private expense, estimates have been made of
the cost of a break water and it has been decided to built the same
which will greatly improve the harbor and make a safe anchorage
tor ships at all times and in all kinds of weather.
The Kahului Railroad Company has made mauy improvements
during the past year in the way of building new track, relocating
the old, installing new equipment putting up many new buildings
and enlarging the old und keeping ahead of the demands upon
them for increased shipping facilities.
The Kahului Store, one of the largest and tinest in the territory
has been ereatlv enlanred dunue the past few months and now
offers to supply the wants of all and fully meets the requirements
of the island trade. And now cames the -announcement that the
company has decided to build a large hotel and a new bank, to
be followed by many new improvements in the near future. That
the residents of Kahului should feel elated over the present con
ditions and future prospects is natural.
The progress of any town on Maui is to the advantage of the
whole island, Each community should strive for what it wants
and as a whole make Maui the first island of the group.
Th firtvcrrmn In the published correspondence be-
and the Senator. t ween Governor Carter: and Senator
McCandless the governor brings forward his message to the legis
lature in which he stated that he signed the loan appropriation
with reservations and calls attensions to the fact that loan appro
priations have never been expended in full during, the period for
which they are made. He calls attention to the fact that the Tern4
tory is now paying Five hundred Dollars per day.interest and wil
eventually have to pay the principal. The governor criticises the
senator for his much-ado about petitions - that are irrelevent and
have no bearing an the subject under discussion.
Senator McCandless takes a very different view of the issue
and insists that the petitioners knew the financial condition of the
country when they signed the petition and look that into consider
He further scores tha governor for getting behing his message
as a means of overriding the will of the legislature and contends
that the petitions remain unanswered.
His former proposal ol monarchy aa an improvement to our
present form of govern ment robs him of much support that ha
otherwise would have had.
The Worthy In our last issue we called attention to the
Poor fact that there are over forty poor children
in Wailuku who expect no Christmas Cheer whatever and publish
ed their wants as given in their own simple language. Most' of
these children are Hawaiians and are extremely poor.
A number of our citizens have came forward with liberal dona-i
tions and it is our intention to turn over to Mrs. A. N. ' Kepoikai
who has kindly consented to act for us.all cash received with which
to buy these children that are not contributed' by individuals
There are but few grown people in town who could not afford to
give a small box of candy or a few dimes in money or some toy
that would mean a world of joy for some little one whose parents
are too poor to buy any thing.
Think the matter over and then let us hear from you and let us
receive your help.
Christmas Before our next issue Christmas, the day that
brings the greatest joy to all Christian people, will have come and
gone b'ut the impress of what it means will be stamped indelibly
upon the minds of millions and guide them to better, nobler lives
On that day, no matter what our differences may have - been, we
forgive and forget and extend the land of good fellowship and en
joy, for one day at least, peace and good will toward all men.
The birth ot unnst, one thousand nine hundred' and six years
ago was the beginning of the reformation of the world and as time
progresses that reformation advances. The first birth of Christ
was celebrated by but a few, now countless hosts inspired by the
spirit of brotherly love and kindness that the day signifies, pay
homage to Christ.

Maul Budget Passed.
The republican centra) committee
met in the Kepoikai building on the
14th Inst to make recomenadatious to
to the-county supervisors In re appro
priations for various put-poses for the
yuar. Among those present were H.
Baldwin, H. A. Baldwin, G. S
Goodness A. N. Kepoikai, proxy for
H, Howell; R A. Wads worth, proxy
for O. Tolefson, and J. N.' K. Keola,
proxy for S. Kapu. Mr. Keola act
ed as secretary in the absence of S
Keliinoi, who was at Kahakuloa on
business conneoted with the party.
The estimates for publio Improve
ments tor roads and bridges, prepared
by Hugh Howell, Territorial civil and
road engineer, amounting to $98,4(10,
were ciscussed In caucus by the ex
ecutive of the County Committee with
the Republican members of the Board
of Supervisors. The joint com rolttee
meeting recommended to the Board
of Supervisors the apportionment of
appropriations for roads and bridges
for the coming year, as follows:
District. Per cent.
Wailuku 29 1-2 $26,550.00
Makawao 29 1 2 26,550.00
Hana 10 9,000.00
Lahaina 23 1 2 21,150.00
Molokal .. 7 6,300.00
Lanal, 1-2 450.00
The above estimates were based on
the tax returns for Maui County for
1905, which will be about $243,000, or
an increase of about $50,000 over last
year's property and income tax
The Board of Supervisors met' In
open session during the afternoon to
discuss on the budget for 1906. They
met again in the evening and adjourn
ed at 9 p. m. .
On Friday morning,' Dec. 15th, at
7:20 a. m., after waiting twenty min
utes for W. H. Cornwell, who promls
ed to be present, the four Republi
can members of tha Board of Super
visors, viz: Henntng (chairman),
Church, Meyer and Halualani, passed
on the following appropriations, viz:
BUDGET FOR 1906.

Total , ..$ 113,050.00
The Board of Supervisors adjourn
ed at 7:30 p. m. to meet again Jan
uary 2, 190$. It will be seen from the
above that the Board of Supervisors
passed the. appropriations for Im
provements at $68,000, . or $30,000
less than the estimates' prepared by
Mr. Howell, engineer; also $22,000
less than the total recommended by
the joint committee:
It is likely that during the coming
year new appropriations may be need
ed for creating new offices, such as
civil and road englbeers, assistants
etc., and the total appropriation
proposed for roads and bridges may
be still reduced to about $50,000.'
The County of Maul will be getting
more for public improvements In a
single vear than it did under pre
vious forms of government. By actual
computation, Maul never had $20,000
worth of publio improvements spent
in a single' year heretofore so ' the
taxpayers and voters of Maui Countv
should applaud the action of the Maui
Boar" of Supervisors in-making this
unparalleled provision for public im
provementsln this very much neglect
The chances are if the same Board
Of Supervisors continue In office for
another two years, Maui County can
boast of having good roads to travel
in all sorts -of weather, and when
Secretary Atkinson visits us again
he will haveuo occasion to repeat
that Maui roads are the worst in the
County government makes the dif
ference and the Republican members
of the Board of Supervisors are the
lira men at the head of our Count V
affairs who will ' cause these achieve
ments In the history of public Improve
meats. The Board of Supervisors
are trying their level best to keep
down the salary pay rolh to $45,000
for the year and none but the actually
needed offices outside of those create
ed by statute, will be provided for,
