POLITICS ON MAUI.

have livcniil up a great deal all
over the Island of Maui.

Already the politicians around
Market street, Wailuku, have been
slating candidates for nomination
in the coming convention. Thev
include in the ltats manv of 'the
present County oflich'ils.
V. E. Saffory is slated for sheriff
and so far no one has been talked
of to oppose him but for the ollice
of Deputy Sheriff the names of
of police ollicer Chas. Lake, and
clerk E. II. Rogers appear and
there are some who venture to say
that there still other aspirants.
The fight for Legislative honors
promises to be a bit livelier, so
rumor lias it. it is being whispered
around, that W. J. Coelho and S
kelunoi will cross swords in the
political arena for the nomination
for the Senate. As Maui is only
entitled to elect one Senator
this coming election, therevboing
two hold-oyers, there may bo other
aspirants from the pother districts.
Both Coelho and Keliinoi havo
served terms in the lower house of
the Legislature and are botli in
quest of higher honors.
For the lower house of the Lcgis-
lature nothing much has been
heard, although the politicians are
searching for good men.
On Wednesday night a number
of Portuguese voters of Wailuku
District met for the purpose of
forming a political club. A com
mittee of organization was annoin
ted and a mooting will be held in
the near future, when the club will
be permanently organized.
The Portuguese voters of the
island of Maui numbered about 250
at the last election and that num
ber will bo increased by more thnn
one-half in this election, giving
them a total of about 400 voters, or
one-sixth of the total number of
voters registered two years ago.
Many of the young Portuguese
have figured this out and claim
that as Maui elects six reresenta
tives, one of these should bo a
Portuguese, and they further claim
that it would bo to the interests of
the Republican Party to place a
Portuguese on their ticket.

not think of how much it will buy, but
HOA MUCH IT WILL EARN.
When you find yourself thinking of your dollars
in this way, you aro starting on the only straight
and suro road to wealth. Idle dollars aro of no moro
use to the world than idlo mon. Every dollar you
make over the cost of actual necessities should bo
immediately placed under the saT"iuiard of a strong

SINGER SEWING MACHINES
Cannot be obtained through merchandise dealers. They are delivered
directy from maker to user only through the Company's own em
poyees. There is as great a difference in the cost of makine sewintr
machines ns there is in making watches. A cheap watch will indicate
time with fair accuracy for n short time, l'airly good stitching can be
done on somcif the old patterns of cheap sewing siachincs when they
are new, but they always work hard, are noisy and soon wear out.
livery SINGIJR MACHINH is tested by actual sewing at the factory.
It is always ready for every kind of stitching and will do better work
and do it longer than any other because it is of better design and
construction. A Postal Card to
