Asiatic Physicians. The Board of Health is seriously con
sidering the advisability of appointing a Japanese to the position
of Government Physician at Hanalei, Kauai, aud gives as an ex
cuse the old chestnut that there is insufllcient funds with which to
pay a white physician.
This policy is in keeping with the scheme of cheapening the
cost of everything that has been pursued in the islands for years
and is resulting in the Japanizing of the islands, and is the policy
that has made it necessary for thousands of disappointed wnites
to leave the islands in disgust and seek homes elsewhere. In the
hope of saving a few cents, Japanese have been worked into posi-
tions that were formerly held by-a class of people that could and
ronnld Vmv rlnnA much to Americanize the Territory instead of
making it have more of the ear "narks of a Japanese colony than
an American Territory.
Why didn't the County of Kauai do as the County of Maui has
done in the matter of the appointment of a physician for the Isl
and of Molokai offer to stand part of the expense of a physician?
A few years ago Japanese helpers were employed as assistants
to the mechanics in various lines of work until today practically
all trades are in the hands of Asiatics, and now the professions
are attacked and who can say that our legislature will not soon be
controlled bv Jans, our courts presided over by Japs, and that
some bland Mongolian will not seek the honor of the Governor
ship on the ground that he could fill the position more cheaply?
The people at large bitterly resent this entering wedge and see
in it the carrying forward of a plan that has caused whites and
Hawaiians alike to distrust the Territorial officials.
Some ten or twelve members of the
bar met in the Court House on Wed
nesday to consider ways and means
of securing the services of a compe
tent stenographer for the betterment
of court work.
As it is now, no official record can
be made or kept that is satisfactory
to 'all in many cases, except the re
cords in term time of the Circuit
Court. So much has the work grown
before the District Magistrate that
t is highly important that a complete
ecord should be kept in many coses.
Attorney J. L. Coke, the senior mem
ber of the Bar, called the meeting to
order, and was promptly made per.
manent chairman of the meeting.
County Attorney D. II. Case wus
The members seemed to feel that
stenographer could be employed
who would serve the Circuit Court
during term time, and be available
for work in the District Court when
not engaged in the higher court.
A motion was made by ) H. os
that a committe of three, of which the
chairman be one, be appointed to
take up the matter and report one
week hence. All preseni including
Circuit Judge Kepoikai and District
Magistrate McKay were unanimous
that an official stenographer should
Maui Wants The Since the organization of the Territory, all
Convention. of the Territorial conventions of the Re
publican party have been held in Honolulu, except the last one
which was held in Hilo. At the last convention, through' the etforts
and foresight of one of our delegates, W. T. Robinson, a moyemerit
was started to have the next convention on Maui, and all of the
delegates present assured him that they would only be too willing
to have the next convention here. i
: Recently the matter has been brought up by the committeemen
from Honolulu who have expressed a desire to have the next con
vention held here in accordance with the understanding at Hilo.
This spirit of fairness as shown by the committeemen nil over
the islands is appreciated by the members of the party, here and
will dp much for the success of the party as a whole. . It is reason
ably certain that the large new Knights of Pythias Hall can.be had
free of charee. and the people of Maui, who are noteu for. their hos
pitality, may be depended upon to see that the delegates &rp rqyal
ly taken care of while they are here.
Loner before that time the new Iao Valley Road will be eomplet
ed and we would suggest that many sights of great interest shoud
be shown the delegates as a diversion from their political work,

' Races for tha: Fourth.. The Maui Racing Association, is
putting forth every effort to make the coming races on the7 Furh
of July the greatest success ever held on the grounds of ;the As
sociation, and have gotten up an excellent programme :thit -w
meet the approval of all classes. There are to be races in liai ness
of different kinds, running races of different classes .that ' will not
only meet the wishes of those that have horses of different 'grades
but races for the Japanese, races for the Portuguese and races for
others. The Association is in a perfectly solvent financial condi
tion and all races held on their grounds in the past have proven a
source of great pleasure to those who have attended, as well as
financial success to the Association, with the exception , of ' those
held on the twelfth of August, owing to the fact that many
were unable to attend on account of being employed on the .plan
tations, and had to work on that day. The Fourth of July i$ roc-op
nized all over the Union as the holiday of holidays, -.and as the
races of the Association afford the greatest source of pleasure to
the great majority, the usual attendance may be expected.

James Alo Returns from San
James Alo, a resident of Kula and
one of the clerks in the onice of
Alexander and Baldwin in San Fran
cisco returned from the city Satur
day night and is at work at his form
er desk in the office of the Kahului
Railroad Company. He was in the city
at the time of the earthquake and
with the rest suffered as a con
sequence of the lack of water and
food until the situation was gotten in
hand by the. authorities.
His stories agree with all those
told by others returning from the
city. He says that for some days
water was very bard to get and to
get fond it wa necosary ti stand in
iuefir tunny hours and wait one's
turn and then after waiting for four
or live hours the food would all be
given out and it was necessary to
walk several miles to some other
plnce where food wns being distribut
ed and wait attain and when he got
to the plane of waiting all, that was
gi.en out was a piece of raw beef, or
possibly a piece of dry bread. As
there was a scarcity of food at first
a very little could be had for each
person nnd all were treated exactly
alike. Many persons who a few days
before were enjoying great wealth
had to stard in line with the poorest
r,f tl.( c'tv and wail, their turn for a
piec3 of dry bread. And all were re
quired to work, with their hands and
do whatever was necessary for the
care of tiie sick and the clearing of
the streets and other classes of work
that vas required by the authorities
in charge. No one was allowed to
remain ia idleness not even for a day
but all were required to work. At
first a few tried to take advantage of
the conditions aud tnakemoneybutthjs
was soon stopped. One person had
charge of a supply of water and sold it
at the rate of one dollar per cup. When
the soldiers came they ordered him
to leave the fountain and on his re
fusal ran a bayonet through the self
appointeu proprietor oi wnat was in
reality one of the city's drinking foun
tarns. He was a police officer in
uniform and had been coining money.
Many thousands of people had to sleep
on the bare ground without sufficient
clothing on to keep themselves warm
even in the day lime.
Not even the wealthiest person in
town could afford the luxury of a
fresh water bath as no water was
allowed to be used except for cooking
and drinking purposes.
