Good Tidings. The trip of Superitendenl Holloway of the
Public Works Department is a matter of much interest to all the
people of Maui, and especially to those of Lahaina and Central
The Superintendent made the trip primarily to investigate the
proposition to buy water rights for Lahaina and furnish the town
with an abundant supply of Good water in accordance with the
wishes of the last legislature as expressed by their appropriation
of funds for that, purpose. At the present time the Pioneer Mil
Company own practically all the water that Lahaina is using .and
it is only through their courtesy that many of the residents have
hud water in times of drouth.
The purchase of water will be a distinct loss to the plantation but
they are willing to assist the residents and sell what is gold to any
The Lahainaluua School will then be enabled to use their taro
lands and will save about three thousand dollars per year in the
purchase of poi alone. While the Superintendent will inspect the
Puuhele Kihei's road, McGregors Landing and the Iao Valley
' road. One matter of importance is the plan to complete the new
Jail and officers quarters in the jail as per the offer by the County
, Board of Supervisors. At the present time all of the officers and
prisouers are compelled to seek shetler elsewhere when a Kona
is blowing as the old building is just ready to fall down and may
yet cause the violent death of those incarcerated there in. With
the completion of this building and rire Station a long felt want
will have been fulfilled.
Undesirable The movement of the Japanese toward
immigration. America is one of the most unwise things
the Japanese could possibly do and will shortly make their living
not only there but in the insular possessions impossible. In
America are many hundreds of thousands of union labor members
who can easily bring such influence to bear that the Japanese will
meet with as stringent measures as the Chinese have in the past.
At present Japanese are welcome to co:ne into the territory to
work in the fields where white men do not care to labor but let
there be a united effort to oppose Japanese cooly immigration into
the United States and the laws that apply to one section of the
country will apply to all sections alike and not only will they be
prevemed from goiug to Americabut will be barred from entering
Hawaii where they are needed and where thej enjoy far better
returns for their labor than they could possibly get in their own
country. Then they will see the folly of their eoing farther east
but it will then be too late. While the wagos paid are larger in
America than here the chances of steady employment are not
nearly so good and one who can find work for four or five months
of the year is exceptionally fortunate. For this reason the op
portunities for the laboring Japanese are far better here than in
the United States. The sooner they realize this the better.
Fair Play and In a recent issue of the Advertiser the
no favors. following appears in the editorial columns
"Listen for the bowl of the members from Hawaii, Maui and Kauai
when the Legislature is aked to, appropriate for the support of
j parks in Honolulu." Granting that the Advertiser feels towards
the islands mentioned as her Editorial indicates it seems to us
poor policy and bad politics to foster such feetings iu the minds of
the people. There is no reason for any ill will to exist between
the people in the different islands and none for fostering it. There
is no reason why any member of the legislature should vote against
a measure that would benefit Honolulu or any other place in the
islands but there is good and sufficient reason for with holding
from Honolulu the lions share of the appropriations that she has
claimed as her right in the past.
The taxes have been collected in the past to support Honolulu.
Th9 men elected 10 the legislature should stand together and see
that she gets her just share and no more. Ihe members from the
three islands mentioned could easily dictate to Honolulu instead of
receiving orders from her as in the past and such flings as that
just made by the Advertiser will tend to unify them and bring
about such a compact.
't The howling will theu be from another quarter.
A Lahaina Last week we published a short account of a
Hero. rescue from death by drowning in the, angry sea
of a Japanese by a brave Hawaiian by the name oi Kuaiwa. So
used to such heroic acts ar the Hawaiians that they think but
little of such deeds and allow them to pass unnoticed. This should
Kuaiwa should receive some recognition of his brave act and
should know that his efforts are appreciated. To s wiui into the break
ers after all efforts to propel a boat into the angry surf hadp roven
futile and fight for hours in the heavy surf for the Ufa of a crippled
and almost helpless person at the risk every moment of losing
his own life required a nerve that few men prossess, and when it
itis considered' too that the one he was risking his own life for
was neither a country man of his nor even an acquaintance we
must all the more admire him for his heroisim.
On first hearing an account by phone of the occurrence we sug
gested that this matter be communicated to Delegate Kalanianaole
with the request that steps be taken to have the Uuited States
government acknowledge the heroic act by the presentation of a
suitable medal as is given in just such cases.
