Extremely Patriotic. During the past two or throe months
we have received sevoral communications from Chinese charging
that one of their countryman who holds a police commission is not
a citizen of the United States, and seem extremely anxious to have
bim removed from the office he holds.
On looking into the matter we have ascertained that this same
oflicer has caused the arrest of many gamblers, and we see the
real motive for asking for the removal of their countryman.
The wording of the communications received ring with patriotic
assertiosn. and the complaints claim to be actuated by the holiest
motives possible, which most cause any one acquainted with their
true character to smile.
We may be wrong, but we are of the opinion that the charges
made against thoollicer are in reality the highest recommendations
possible, and believe that the oflicer should be kept on the force in
spite of the protests of the extremely patriotic Cninunon who re
trying so hard to have him removed.
The County Officers. The county officers have completed
one year of their term, and with this meeting have begun a new
year. The task before them one year ago was by no means an
9arly one. as county government was to many here nn unknown
quantity. That local self government is a success is admitted by
all. That some see'errors ana feel they could do better than
the present officers and incidentally improve their own pockets is
to be expected.
From a state of chaos all the county officers went to work to
carry out the will of the legislature, and conduct the affairs of the
county to the satisfaction of the people and the great majority of
the people are satisfied! with their work, and will unquestionably
return- them to the offices they now hold.
In every part of the Union an oflicer who fills his office properly
is considered the only logical nominee for the position for a second
termVThis encourages efficient work and is a reward for good
service. " '
This course should be pursued by the convention in the coming
campaign in the matter of nominating officers for the county and
Territory and should bo pursued as far as possible.
This is the proper time to consider matters of this kind for the
precedent once established will prove of great value to the public
in securing efficient work in the future.
REPORT OF COU NT Y ATTORN EY
For the Month of June, 1906.
To the Honorable Board of Supervi
sors, within and for the County
I herewith submit my report, for
the month of June, 1906:
Circuit and District Courts. The
past month has been an unusually
busy oce owing to the fact that the
June term of the Circuit Court con
vened on the 14th clay of the month.
Presentments were made and indict
ments returned against ten persons
charged with felonies. Before the
Circuit Court these cases were dis
posed of as follows:
One forfeited bail, seven entered
pleas of guilty, two were tried and
Two cases of feiony continued from
theMarch 1906 term were lurther
continued to the October 1906 term
by reason of the fact that all persons
interested reside in Lahaina, where
the next sitting of the Circuit Court
will be had, thus saving much ex
pense to the Territory as well as
serving the convenience of all parties
In some twelve or fifteen appeal
cases pending before the Circuit
Court, by consent of tt-e Territory
parties' defendant, trial by Jury was
waived and these cases set for trial
before his Honor, A. N. Kepoikai,
jury waived thus likewise saving
much expense that would necessarily
follow in the trail of jury trials.
In so far as concerns the rrimina
work of the term it is safe to say
that, considering the volume of busi
ness to be transacted, the present
term of the Circuit Court has involv
ed less expense than any term held in
this Circuit for many years.
The report of the Deputy County
Attorney attached hereto will show
the volume and nature of business
had in the District Court of Wailuku
during the month.
In the Matter of the Petition of S.
Ahrai arid others, concerning the
citizenship of L. K. Akaua, and his
removal as a police officer,
Editor and nannRer
JULY 14, 1S100
In this matter I may say that I am
personally aware of the fact that Mr.
Akana, in the performance of his
official duties has made himself par
ticularly objectionable to certain of
the Chinese signers of the petition
that is now before your Honorable
body, requesting his removal, owing
to the fact that he had rendered
materia! assistance to the Depart
ment of the Police and County At
torney in their eflot ts to stamp out
the gambling evil inHbis County. His
honest and constant efforts as a
police oflicer has been especially dis
tasteful to those arrested and tried
for assisting and maintaining games
of Che Fa, and this department U
firmly of the belief that all of this
apparent righteous indignation on
the part of the Chinese because a
foreigner is holding an oflice t nder
the County Government has not the
true patri' tic ring that comes from
citizens who have at heart the best
interests of the community.
I do not hesitate to say that, as a
legal proposition, Mr. Akrna is qual
ified to act as police officer whether
he is or is not an American citizen.
To properly police a County, and
maintain a watchful eye on the for
eign as well as the citizen population,
it is not only advisable but oftentimes
absolutely necessary to commission
foreigners as police officers; and a
police department that fails to take
this view of the situation esp cia'ly
jn view of our cosmopolitan popula
tion, would be derelict in the per
formance of it duty.
I still have under consideration the
citizenship of Mr. Akana. I may add
that the same question lias also been
referred to me for investigation by
the Attorney General's department,
a communication having beeu ad
dressed to that department by Mr.
S. Ahmi of Maui, with the request
that the matter be kept from the
In so far as concerns the citizen
ship cf Akara, I will be unable to re
port at '.his sesfcirn, and would there,
fore respectfully request that the
matter be passed until the regular
August meetijg of your Board.
In the M.ttUr of Railroad trucks,!
flumes and ditches, upon, over and
across public highway; throughout
the I)ounty ot Mai i.
As t't quested by the Hoard I pie
pared, and have inserted in the Maui
Nkws a notice to the public setting
forth the manner in which railroad
tracks, flumes and ditches upon, over
and across public highways through
out the County, either for purposes
temporary or permanent, (flight be
constructed, a copy of which notice
the Clerk of the Board undoubtedly
has on file.
In the Matter of Ordinance looking
to the protection of trees, along and
upon public highways.
Upon an investigation of the Re
vised Latfs of Hawaii I find that the
existing Territorial laws with regard
to the destruction of property an
sufficient toinsme the protection of
such trees as may from time to time
be planted upon and along our public
highways, and that there is in fact
no necessity for the passage of an
ordinance having in view the pro
tection of such property.
In the Matter of the complaint
against J. II. Mahoe, Deputy Sheriff
of Molokai for refusing to render os
sistance to citizens in distress.
Not deeming this a matter that
would justify the expense that would
in cessarily be incurred in a persona!
trip to Molokai, I have addressed
communications to several citizens of
Molokai, whom I felt might be
able to throw some light on the sub
ject. Answers to these coinmunica
tions have not as yet been received
Mr. Mahoe has persona'ly called at
my cilice and given me his statement
of what occurred, and insists that he
made every endeavor to render all
assistance possible, even taking the
precaution to send a police officer
with others to the small island on
which Mr. Devauchelle war cast, and
from which he swam to Molokai
However, with the information now
at hand I am unable to make a satis
factory report. v
