TO TAKE PASSENGERS DIRECT
A matter that will bo of great
interest to all of tho people of
Maui is tho nnnuncement that all
tho Hawaiian American Steamships
have recently taken out a licenso
to carry passengers, and beginning
with the return trip of tho Novadan
to Kahului she will carry passen
Heretofore all the people of this
island havo been at the loss of time
and extra expense necessary to a
trip to Honolulu and were' often
disappointed on reaching tho city
in finding all. tho accommodations
already engaged., .
r-roin now on au this will ho
changed and thosu wishing to come
to Maui may do so with less expense
than formerly aud those who wish
to go to the Coast may know be
fore leaving homo whether or not
passage may be had and will be
able to make a quicker trip than
BOARD OF SUPERVISORS.
The board of supervisors held
their regular monthly meeting this
week in the board rooms. Among
the bills passed was one from tho
Inter-Island Steamship people for
carrying prisoners and a police
office from Pukoo to Honolulu.
This bill is the one that th6 su
pervisors returned twice for correc
tion as the company attempted to
charge the county five dollars for
each passage whereaB the usual
charge is but two dollars. The
company after trying twice to get
their exorbitant bill paid sent in a
bill for tho usual amount which
was ordered paid. A committe
from tho Wailuku District Im
provement Associotion waited up
on tho board to represent to them
what was desired by that organi
zation and ask that assistance be J
given in making permanent sido
walks through Wailuku. It seems
to be tho policy of the Association
to urge property holders to pay for
tne material used and urge tho
supervisors to lay out permanent
walks, fix the grade and have them
order tho sidewalks properly curbed
so tnat they may be uniform.
This seems fair and reasonable
and the owners of property will
make a good investment by com
pleting their part of the work.
