Improvement Is After much hard work the progressive
Contagious- citizens of town got the improvement of
the sidewalk's of town fairly started, and the building of concrete
walks for two of the principal streets is now in progress.
Before the work was begun some of the most progressive cit
i,ens started a plan to have the walk built down to the new depot,
and have signed a petition and contract combined, which upon the
acceptance of the same by the county supervisors will be complete
in itself and as some of the supervisors have already expressed
themseves as favorable to the projoct we may reasonably expect to
have the concrete walks extended to the depot.
This move on the part of the town is in the right direction and if
kept up will add much to the attractiveness of the plae.
Kahului is making rapid strides in advancement, and as soon as
the leases expire there that are now held by irresponsible Japs
and Chinese, the owners will be free to make of it one of the best
towns in the islands, and each advancement will aJd to the benetit
of the whole county.
Every part of the county is progressing am', is building up more
during the administration of the present county board thau was
ever the case under the old regime.
It will be but a few years until we have good belt roads entirely
around the island, and many of our idle lands occupied by inde
pendent home owners.
Another improvement that will add much to , the popularity of
t,Vif islnnd is the nhintiii" of suitable shade trees along1 the high
ways wherever the same are needed. This work has begun
earnest and will be carried out to a successful finish.
O Maui No Ka 01. While the various county officers through
out the group, one and all, have boen occupying one sort of a make
shift or another as quarters, Maui county has sought a permanent
home for all her officers, and this week a lease was sierned by the
Superintendent of Public Works for a term of fifteen years, grant
ing to the county for the consideration of $:00.00 per annum, all of
the upper floor of the new jail, except one room, to bo use 1 by the
This will give Maui an advantage over all the other counties for
none have their own offices and most of them are scattered about
in different buildings. Maui is not only accomplishing mere per
manent results with her funds than any of the counties, but
making strides for the development of the county that will make
of her the most prosperous island of all, in spite of the fact that
she has been a feeder of Oahu for so many years in the past.
jWhile some of the counties have gone into thecourts to ascertain
the rights, privileges and powers of the petty personages whose
heads have become swollen through the offices they hnld, Maui has
gone quietly about the duties before her and has laid plans and i
carrying them into execution for the betterment of her people that
is not equalled by any county in the group.

Mui Must Have Last week we advocated the holding of
the Convention the Republican Territorial Convention
here on Maui, and find that the scheme has met with the approval
of some, at least, in Honolulu and none oppose the same. At th
last convention which was held in Iiiio, it was understood this con
vention was to be on Maui and as we are entitled to it we should
have it, and we will get it too. Not only does the National Commit,
teeman favor it, but all of the political leaders here are heartily in
favor of the plan. Honorable H. P. Baldwin, chairman of the
County Central Committee, was seen in regard to the plan and i
in hearty accord with the same, and Judge A N. Kepoikai, chair
man of the District Committee, is one of the strongest supporters
of the plan.
The Evening Bulletin in commenting on our editorial of last
week, says that we are entitled to the convention, and as Maui has
such a reputation for good behavior that it might do all the dele
gates eood to come to Maui to learn the ways of virtue and
decorum. . .
While the bouquet thrown at Maui is merited, the behavior of all
Republicans is usually beyond reproach.
An Injustice The List legislature, following the unwise course
of preceding legislatures, passed appropriation bills in excess of the
available funds and were then under the necessity of leaving it
discretionary with the Governor what appropriations should be
used and what ones should not.
Wich this advantage in his own hands he proceeded to borrow
little over one-half of the amount authorized in the loan act.aud not
being satisfied with this arbitary power selected from the variou
appropriations, a large number of appropriations that would ben
efit Oahu, and gave to the outer islands tbo scraps as their part of
the feast, while they must pay the lion's share of the taxes that go
to pay off he loan.The taxes collected in the County of Maui for the
year l'JOo was 24H,5.i.84, over one-halt or which goes to the Terr
tory, and after paying this large amount what does Maui get from
the loan fund for a term of two years? J ust 110,000 not one dolla
of which goes to the. building of the much needed belt roads nor
one cent for the erection of a now court house.
