COUNTY WINS 'MANDAMUS
Oahu County, aided by Maui
has won its fight on the delinquent
tax proposition. Judge De Bolt
issued a writ of mandamus order
ing Territorial Auditor Fisher to'
issue a warrant in favor of the
County for .$17,039.38, being , tho
sum claimed by Oahu for collec
tions of delinquent taxes, in which
the Territory claimed - that tho
County had no, share. Tho decision
of the Judgo was a lengthy nc,
with much quotation' of law.
In his final argument Deputy
Attorney General Prosscr 'figurod
that tho County has an mtprest in
a very big sum, if the, ..County's
contcntcntions are corrpct. 1 iiio
delinquent taxes amount, to "alfout
$80,000 per year, and tho 'territory

Judgo Do Bolt refused to .hear
testimony of legislators a'S to what
they had understood to be tho in
tent of the law, holding that' testi
mony on the subject was not ad
missible. Three senators, it is un
derstood, were ready to testify and
to produce memoranda to show
that the legislature did net mean
what tho act says in somewhat
plain terms, but their testimony
was not produced, tho court hold
ing that the. act could not be con
strued by such means.
The Judge said he had failed to
discover anything in tho act ox

which were delinquent before the
County was organized. Tho open-

SINGER SEWING MACHINES
Cannot be obtained through merchandise dealers. They ani delivered
' iMrectly from maker to user only through the Company's own em
ployees. There is as great u difference in the cost of making sewing
machines ns there is in making watches. A cheap watch will iudicate
time with fair accuracy for n short time. Fairly good stitching rtm be
3ono on some of the old patterns of cheap sewing machines when they
are new, but they always work hard, are noisy nnd soon wear out.
Hvery SINGHK MAC1IINK is tested by actual sewing at the factory.
It is always ready for every kiud of stitching and will do better work
and do it longer than any other because it is of better design aud

;a un tnc evening ol July 14th,, the
Kahului Ladies' Auxiliary gave a
dinner and dance on the Tennid
Court at Kahului, which was unani
mously pronounced one'of the fin
est and most successful affairs ever
given on Maui. The grounds were
lighted 'by ' hundreds of Japanese
lanterns and the effect was delight
ful, giving the whole 6Corio a look
of Fairyland. No music is sweeter
than tho native musjc of theso Is
lands and tho Taia Orchestra put
tho finishing touch to it all and left
nothing to be 'desired.
Tho dinner was excellent and
well served by tho charming ladies
of the Auxiliary and thoir assis

fair and showed the master hand
at tho helm and we hopo it will bo
repeated soon. Tho object of the
entertainment was to raiso funds
