Teachers or Tbe finances of the Department of Education
menials are in such straightened circumstances that
something must be done at once or more serious results must
At the present time there is not sufficient money to pay the
present corps of teachers and the people are clamoring in some
districts for new buildings and more teachers. The condition of
affairs is serious and'demands a linn stand on the part of the
Superintendent and the Commissioners. The only thing that can be
done is to employ no additional teachers no matter how badl.y
needed, close those schools that are least attended and pass t he
buck up to the legislature for its action. No teacher of ability will
remain long in the employ of the department if required to do a
menials work aud receive a menials pay.
No young person of any sense will spend years of toil and much
money to qualify for the profession of teaching when that pro
fession which should be the superior of all professions is degrad
ed by the authorities of the territory until io-ranks but little above
the occupations of the ignorant and incompetent. The Depart
ment must either employ qualified teachers in less numbers than
is needed and pay them for their worlr or engage incompetent
persons who may bo had at a low wage. Tne latter course is the
worst thing possible and should not be considered for a moment.
Better dismiss even some of the less competent employees now
on the force and retain the qualified teacher than allow the work
that has required years of toil to degenerate. Our best teachers
must be retained.

In the death of Mr. Augustine Enos Sr. which
occurred on the morning of the 7th instant Maui
has lost one of her best citizens and Wailuku one of her most suc
cessful business men.
Mr. Enos was born on the island of Pico, Azores, Portugal March
3rd 1831 and came to Honolulu in 1833. In. 18C9 he entered into
partnership with Chas. Sylva airl John Ferroira, moved to Wai
luku and opened a store with his partners and conducted a suc
cessful business. A few years later he and Ferria bought out
Sylva and later bought the Kahikinui ranch that proved a success
from the start. This together with then1 merchantile establish
ment brought them in a fortune. Together tney ran the ranch until
a few years ago when they sold to Dr. J. 11. Raymond. The part
nership was then dissolved and the properly divided.
On the death of Mr. Ferreira which occurred on January "nl
1903 Mr. Enos was the only survivor of this pioneer firm.
Mr. Enos had enjoyed excellent health all though life until about
a year ago when he had an attick of heart disease that was tbo
final cause of death which owin to the fact that he had pass
ed his seventy fifthyear was not unexpected by his friends.
Death occurred at the homo of his only surviving daughter Mrs.
T. B. Lyons. The funeral was held at St. Anthony's Churcii
Father Maximin conducting the services and was one of the most
universally attended ever held in Wailuku. Every vehicle that
could be brought into service was in use aiul made a procession
extending from near Market Street to the church while many
who were unable to procure a conveyance walked t.o the church to
pay their last respects to one who was not only a true friend but a
man who never spoke ill of any one. A most pathetic sight was
Mr. Faustino just two months Mr. Enos juniorand a life long friend
who deeply mourned the death of his friend whom he had known,
from early childhood. He leaves a wife and two children, Mrs. T.
B. Lyons and Mr. Augustine Enos Jr. and several grand children
and a host of friend i hcughout the whole territory to mourn his
untimely death. He left a.will disposing of his large estate.
The bo; rd of County Supervisors
met at the board rooms Tuesday cf
this week and quickly transacted
much business of interest.
The county eng'neers report Wts
the mater of most general interest
and we give it practically as present

that may be done by contract.
Wailuku, Mar. Gth, 1000.
To tho Honorable Board of Supervisors,
Maui County, T. II.
I liavp the hni'ir to pie
rent herewith my report as County
Engineer for the month ending Feb.
28lh, 1!). .
IT AN A DISTRICT
The principal work done in this
District in the past, month has been
the repairing and reconstructing
bri Igcs jn accordance with the rec
comendalions in my first reno'-t.
The 70 foot span at Oheo Gulch, at
Kipahulu, the longest single spn in
tin1 County' which was in imminent
danger of failing from decay, has
been repaired by ah entirely new
structure if 5(5 'eek clear spun, and
it lias been raised 3 feet above the
grade of the old bridge. This neces
sitated the construction of new piers
requiring over 100 cubic yards of
concrete at a total cist for material
and labor of about $300.00, somewhat
below my original estimate.
Waiohono Bridge, which consisted
of two spans of 40 and 00 feet re
spectively, has been rebuilt by con
structing three concrete piers be
tween the old ones and building a
single siperstruoturo of jists and
flooring without any lruss"s what
Work on the tlonotnaele Bridge, a
span of 40 feet has begun. A pijr
will he const ructed in the. middle in
order to do away with the trouble
some trusses and the. grade viil lie
raised about 18 inches.
All iron wo'k of bridges has been
given to coats ol red lead and boiled
oil, the best known preservative of
metal, and all wood work has been
Ufiven from one to three costs of a
mixture of crude oil anl carboliuium
in equal parts, which I am confident
will prove to be tha most efhVwnt
preservative excep. the expensive
creosoting prosess that wo can use.
There Is no doubf. in my mind that if
these bridg .'s arc repainted ouee
every two or three years, or even
less frequently in the less rainy dis
tricts, that th y will resist docat
20 years or more, Especial attention
has been given to the jiints and
oilier inaccessible parts, which have
received nolesjthan throa costs of
the abovs mixture before erection.
Th? road work that has been done
in this district I: as been mainly that
of guarding against the destructive
action of water by ditchc. and drain,
which nil reduce very inatrially the
cis'. of future repair. Tho ioad
through Kahikinui, which has been
in a wretched condition for -several
years and recently almost impassible,
has been cleared of rocks and put in
8uch good shape, all at a cost of less
than 5J.UU, thai nearly an hours
time is saved in travelling a distance
f hftecn miles. It may be well
t) nolo that the concrete work
The Wailuku District The Wailuku Dis-
Improvement Association's Work. ' trict Improvement
Association held a meeting on Thursday of this week. The result
of the work accomplished by the sidewalk committee will be
most heartily appreciated by the people of Wailuku. The commit
tee had no trouble in getting the . property holders to sign an
agreement to pay for one half of the cost f laying a concrete
sidewalk from High Street to Market and on Market tho full
length of the business portion. The principal property holders
on that streets are public spirited men aud entered heartily ii.to
the plan. The work is to be done by the County engineer and
the County will pay for one half of the construction of the same.
Hie Association has again taken up the matter of the construct
ion of a badly needed court house and the completion of tho jail
and will work for these ladly needed institutions.

For prep ira'ion for new work the

The new road out of tin; Territorial
Loan Fund from Kailua toward Pea
hi will be completed shortly after
the first of April: one section has
been completed already from the
Wai,tio mauka road to a junction
with the main road at Ilonokala, and
this can be thrown open to the pu
blic ai soon as the fence which was
authorized by the Board, some
months ago, can ha built. Material
for this fence has been ordered and
some of it delievered at Iluc-lo land
i eg. An examination of the route
proposed to macadamize from the
Wailuku -Makawac boundary, on the
main belt road upjhe Pain Makawao
road to the camp has been made
Sites for rock crushing have been
picked out and an estimate made of
the .cost of macadamizing. Some
little grading will bo require on this
road before macadamizing begins.
A rotary screen to be used in con
nection with the rock crushing plant,
to cost$l47.50 delivered at Kahului,
has been ordered of the Honolulu
Iron Works. A suitable wagon tor
hauling crushed rock with harness
has also been ordered from the coast,
which will arrive here in two or
three weeks time.
An examination ot the new road
petitioned for, from Pauwela towards
Halehaku, inakai of the main road
has been thoroughly made. There is
no question whatever but that this
roa 1 askijl for is th'i proper location
on the main beit road leading from
Pauwe'a toward liana, and the need
for it is urgent. Tho route will even
tually connect with the present road,
a, the bridge in the b ittern of Kaki
pi Gulch at Halehaku. It would bo
out of the question tn build the whole
of this during thin year as it would
bost more than we can n' w spend on
that section to connect at Kakipi
bridge, but a start could be m ide
from Pauwela and with the sum of
500.V00 enough road be constructed
to be of service to the r?sidents be
low Puukolii, and this could also be
used as a main roacl as far as it
should be built by construting an in
expensive coineclion from the end 6f
it to the old r.pad. I would recom
mend that a survery of this route be
authorized and grade stakes set and
riehts of way be inves'ig ited, whi :h
cjuld be reported on at the next
meeting of the Board. Slakes are
now being set on thu road from the
