ed by Alexander & Baldwin with
the Hawaiian Dredging Co. where
by tho latter agrees to build a break
water from a point on tho beach
on tho Paia side of tho oil tanks
at Kahului to tho . American Girl
Rock, a distance of two thousand
one hundred feet. It is understood
that tho contract price is ono hun
dred thousand dollars and will bo
paid for in full by the Kahului
The plans call for a breakwater
two hundred .and fifty feet wide
on tho bottom, one hundred feet
wide on the top, and eight feet
above high water.
This will make as safe and quiet
a harbor as there is in tho Hawaii
an islands and in all kinds of
weather passengers may step from
the wharf at Kahului onto the

direct and whilo tho facilities are
better for loading freight than any
where in tho territory except Ho
nolulu she will soon rival even her,
the pride of the group.
Maui has a bright future before
her and much of her past and fu
ture prosperity will be due to the
enterprises of Alexander and Bald
win. Kahului is destined to be a
busy sea port and all of Maui will
bo benefitted thereby.
It will surprise many to know that
Kahului harbor is to bo dredged
to a depth of thirty two feet which
will givo ample depth for tho pre

THE KAHULUI RAILROAD CO.
Tho Kahului Railroad Company
ever ready to meet tho requirements
of froight and passonger traffic
and oven going out of its way to
accommodate tho traveling public
has recently completed its new
system to upper-Paia and within a
few days will havo its trains run
ning into tho edge of tho business
portion of Wailuku.
Tho Company has been at at ex
penso of over twelve thousand
dollars in building tho extensions
to Wailuku proper and whilo this
will bo of great accommodation to
company will not increase rates at
all which should be greatly appre
ciated by tho people here.
The writer has traveled over
many of the short roads oi tho

Tho stockholders of Olaa Plan
tation aro painfully awaro that
there is a vast difference between
rates on the railroad between Olaa
and Hilo and those in vogue on
the road here.
The public are perhaps not a-
ware that the policy of the supe
rintendent of tho Kahului Rail
road has been such as to give em
ployment to many Hawaiians to
the exclusion of imported Asiatics
but that is nevertheless the fact.s
The plan has been to give era
ployment when there were no ships
in tho harbor (o tho local men and
pay them the same wages for pick

when engaged on tho wharf al
though this work could have been
dono for much less money by em
ploying common laborers who do
not command tho high rates of
pay that these men do.
Another innovation which will
bo, appreciated by all who have

and W. A. Greenland for member

D. u Withington, of Castle &
Withington. at onco offered tho
resoluation published hero with. In
offering it, ho said:
"It seems to mo that the only
question before us is weather in
view of the governor having with
drawn his endorsement tho Bar As
sociation desires to stand bv
its unanimous recommendations
of Judge Rabinson. Speaking for
mysolf alone and also for other as
far as I have been able to discover.
I find the members of tho Bar As
sociation unanimous in tho senti
ment that tho governor made a
mistake of judgment surely, in the
matter. Nothing has occurred to in
the slightest degree affect the ap
pointment. Feeling this way, and
to bring tho matter before us, be
cause wo ought to havo a full and
fair comprehension of the matter, I
have some resolutions to offer. It
is important to the community that
justice full and fair bo administer
ed, by courts not only boyond self
seeking motives and pohtcal in
lluences, but free alike from the
legislative and executive depart
ments. The resolution offered
was as follows.
Whereas, Tho Honorable George
K. Uarter, Governor, has with'
drawn his support from tho Hono
rable W. J. Robinson, Third Judgo
of tho Circuit Court of tho First
Circuit, as a candidate for re-ap
pointment to said positien, and
Whereas, This Associaton feels
that said Jugo is fully qualified for
said office and deserves re-appoint
Now, Therefore Bo It Resolved,
That tho Hawaiian Bar Association
heartly favorB tho re-appointment
of said Judgo and hereby re-affirms
its recommendation of his re-ap-
And lie It Further Resolved,
That copies of this Resolution be
sent to tho President of tho United
States and the Attorney General
at Washington, and that tho Presi
dent of this Association bo instruct
ed to at onco cable tho gist of the
same to the President and tho At
tornoy General. A rising vote was
called for, by Breckons. When
Robertson put tho question tho
entire meeting roso with a jump,
excepting Lyio A. Dickey, to voto
in tho affirmative. Tho noes were
called upon to riso and still Dickoy
remained seated, so that his at
titudo remains a dark secret. Per
hups, it was suggested, his is the
namo that has been cabled by
Carter, and that ho therefore de
clined to voto on Robinson.
CAMPBELL SELLS ADVANTAGE
OUSLY NEW BOND ISSUE.
Governor Carter received a cable
cram friiu Treasurer Campbell
stating that ho had sold the $750,
000 bond issue at 08i. Ho did not
say whether the sale was private
or competitive. Tho Uovernor in
return cabled his approval.
These bonds will bear interest nt
8.6G per cont, the lowest rate
obtained so far on Territorial bonds
If tho rate of salo and tho inter
est aro considcred,tho money for
tho bond will cost only 8.60 per
cont net. An added odvantago
about this issue is that tho bonds
may bo issued as the money is
needed to pay for public works, so
that the Thrritory will not havo to
pay interest for monoy lying unused

president has reappointed
