Monstrous The action of governor Carter in withdrawing
indeed. his support of Judge Robinson after once having
endorsed his application meets with severe adverse criticism by
a great majority of the leading citizens of Maui. A withdrawal of
an endorsement is practically the same as preferring charges
against the judge and as the charges are not substantiated the
governor has laid his action open to censure of the gravest
character. The Hawaiian Star has the following which' is pretty
near the public feeling on Maui.
"Attorney D. L. Withlngton strikes the right note in the Robinson
matter in concluding a letter with the following language: "I de
sire to reiterate the thought that it is monstrous that the question
whether a judge shall be reappointed should be determined In the
slightest degree by the fact that he may have taken a drink of
whiskey in his chambers while waiting all niajht in pursuance of
the duty of receiving the verdict of'a jury."
The evidence in the case quite clearly shows that nothing took
place which should be called an "orgy," as it seems to have been
described by the governor, except by use of the most reckless
misstatement. It is perfectly clear that the governor was utterly
wrong in cabling to Washington any charges against the judge and
it is very hard to see how there can be any other result than a
vindication of the judge, if all the evidence is received at Wash
ington in time, as it presumably will be.
1 he governor apparently received his information from some
oue or other of a nest of spies and informers who are commonly
reported to be engaged in the collection of such "information."
Isn't it about time Governor Carter learned that such tale bearing
is unreliable: it is nothing less than amazing that an official in a
high and responsible position should fling out serious charges
against a member of the bench without any evidence to suport
them? Judge Robinson's conclusion that he has been spied upou
steadily for a long time in the hope that something might be found
upon which to attack his character is a very ugly one But how
else explain the sudden change which appeared without a basis
except such a basis as would be accepted for use by a character;
less spy? It is difficult to believe that the governor would employ
spies after his experience with Hatter, but if he does so it ought
to be apparent by this time that their statements need verification
Such men are of a character which makes courts specially guard,
against too ready trusting of their sworn testimony."
In view of the fact that nearly all business and professional men
drink the little matter of one third of a bottle of Scotch for eight or
ten attorneys is too small to merit serious consideration.
While we do net believe in drunkenness and believe the courts
should command the highest respeco of all we fail to see wherein
the judge has done one act that merits the action of Governor
New This week the Maui Publishing Company has in
Machinery stalled new Machinery and equipments for niak
ing the highest grade of hook binding and we solicit the trade of
the island of Maui.
Our ruling machine is kept constantly busy and those for whom
we have done work recently are giving us larger orders which is
the best evidence that our work is good and prices all right. '
Our stock for job work has principally been ordered through the
Kahului Store and as our purchases are large we find we can give
our patrons much better prices owing to the great saving made by
buying from San Francisco through this firm.
As the company is composed of strictly local men, employs local
men pays taxes for the up keep of the county we feel that we have
good grounds for expecting liberal patrouage from every resident
of Maui who has work to be done in our line.
Our building has been painteu insiae ana out. A new sign
painted by George Stratemeyer and the office greatly improved by
the work of J. A. Harris.
Every member of the office force takes pride in the ereatly im
proved appearance and facilites for work and all are determined
to make the establishment one of the essential institutions on Maui.
Attempted With this issue of the Maui Mews attention is
Coercion called to the absence of the advertisement of
the lao Stables people and further that they are no longer sub
scribers to the News.
A few weeks ago Antone Do Rego came into our office and re
quested the editor to published a statement to the effect that he
had been arrested in Kahului and fined by District Magistiate W
A. McKay for violation of hnck regulations at Kahului.
His story we considered a serious reflection upon the court and
the police officer.
As we doubted the truth of the statements made and considered
them improper for publication we refused to publish them where
upon Mr. Do. Rego threatened to take out his advertisement and
stop his subscription unless we published bis statement.
The advertisement has since been takeu out aud the paper stop
We acknowleed the right of any to subscribe for or discontinue
any paper, to advertise wherever he pleases or not at all if he is
so narrow minded in business but we feel sure too that the stock
holders and friends of the News will not increase the patronage
who's tnops to the level of attempting to force us to
at cfur courts and policemen for doing their duty.

Mr. Editor the "Maui Nws",
In a recent Issue of your paper I
read an editorial suggesting that it
might be a profitable business for
somebody there to put up Hawaiian
molasses and cane syrup- in suitable
containers for household use, and for
same to be exported for sale in tbe
mainland markets. It must be admit
ted that it appears very plausible on
the face of it, and t had given the
subject seme thought and atte'ution
thinking1 that it might prove a pro
Stable side issue connection1 with the
factor) of the Haiku Fruit & Packing
Co. at Haiku, and my advice now to
anybody would be to go slow.' The
home dem and is very .limited and the
business would necessarily have to
depend mainly on an export trade,
and I am inclined to think that it
would be aa unprofitable venture.
The fact of the matter seems to be
this,' that the bulk of so-called "New
Orleans Molasses" aud "Pure Cane
Syrup" contain only enough of the
real thiag to flavor the principal In
gredient which is corn syrup, com
monly known as "glucose''. This
corn syrup or glucose is manufactur
ed In vast quantities in Chicago and
other places In the "corn belt".
About 46,000, 0d0 bushels of Indian
corn are used each year in the manu
facture of glucbHe, arid the output is
over 500,000 tons which is mainly
shipped in barrels and can at times
be bought at wholesale for but one
cent per pound, From this it is easy
to understand that there is always
plenty of available stock for mixing
"compound" molasses and syrups,
and that these can be put on the
market at a minimum cost. Also I
doubt the ability of anybody but an
expert to know the difference . be
tween the genuine and the "'com
pound," and I also very much doCbt
the willidgness of the average per
son to pay' the difference in price to
obtain tbe genuine article. "Glucose"
is' now acknowledged by scientists
and; by, Federal experts to be a
healthful food, and is rapidly getting
to be so recognized by the consuming
publiC, who have for so long looked
on the name as a bugbear. How
ever it is simply pure corn syrup,
sometimes callod com sugar,' some

times starch sugar, and its molasses
and syrup "compound" taste just as
well, are just as good food, and sell
at about calf the price of the genuine
article. Again, the waste molasses
from the mills there could not be
used, but it would need to be the
first or very best grade of molasses,
and that is often none too good with
the present system' of reboiling low
grade sugars with the syrup.
Yours very truly,
