Our Water The water development on Ma.ii 1ms boon e;ir-
Development, tied on for so long n time and to such n
great extent Hint the completion of a large ditch is of such lilt lo
public interest that it goes unnoticed.
There are many ditches on Maui that are large enough to carry
all the water in theKohala Ditch am1, then have room for the water
of more large ditches nnd lo spare and yet we do not make I ho fuss
about them that our friends on ILfwaii do for the reason that thoy
are not new. . .
Some weeks ago the ditch and tunnels on the line of the new
Waihee ditch so far as excavation nro concerned were completed
and no notice was taken of the event at all. One of I nose t unnels
alone was nearly twenty-live hundred feet long and was run
through a high mountain of hard rock and computed in much less
time than the contract, limit.
By tunneling the distance between Waihee River and Wniluku
was shortened by over two miles and the water to b brought will
irrigate some of the finest cane lands in the island.
Not being satisfied with the large streams of water flowing into
the sea, a skilled mining engineer is boring into the mountains lo
bring forth some of the many millions of gallons of water that is
now running out under the layers of rocks and coming out nt son.
At Waihee and other places along the coast of Maui are spots
where the fresh water coming up from beneath the sea rises above
the sea level to such an extent that it is almost impossible to sw'rn
over the rising wetter and it is certain that some of this water can
be reached by tunnelling in the higher altitudes and made of
great service to the' plantations.
The development of water on this island has turned thousands
of acres of the driest desert lands into most productive cane lands
and is giving employment to thousands of people. Still we feel
that the development of water on this island is only in its infancy.
Worth Knowing. The present House of Representatives at
Washington is composed of 252 Republicans and 138 Democrats, a
majority for the Republicans of 114. In order that the Democrats
may capture the House it will be necessary for them to gain 58
more seats than they lose. Prom this it may be readily seen that
those who sanguinely predict that the next House will be Demo
cratic are as little to be regarded seriously as those who in 1004
predicted that Parker would be elected.
In our local election of two years ago Kalaniunaole received in
this County 280 votes more than the combined votes of Notley and
Iaukea, while Senator Hayselden received 543 votes more than
Wm. White and George Copp 413 more than C. L. Kookoo.
In the county election of a year ago the Republicans elected the
County Sheriff by a majority of 93 votes, the County Clerk by a
majority of 174, the County Auditor by a majority of 45G. t he
County Attorney by a majority of 153, the Treasurer by a majority
The district officers were elected by & majority that affords a
matter for study. Supervisor Meyer was elected by a mnjorhy of
94, Deputy Sheriff Mahoe by 14, Deputy Sheriff Lindsav led
White by an even hundred. Supervisor Halualani led bv 28, while
Wittrock beat Kaleo by 91 and Morton led Maikai by 137. The two
fusionists who were elected won out by a majority of 12 and 11.
A careful study of the vote for the past elections and the excel
lent results shown by the County Government which has accom
plished more for the people here than was ever dono by the Terri
torial form of government would 'lead any thoughtful person to
conclude that the election of a Republican ticket, provided it is one
t hat the people have confidence in, is assured.
Do Your Duty. Next Friday evening, as advertised, tho Re
publican Precinct Clubs will nominate delegates to the Territorial
and District and County Conventions. Let every Republican turn
out and thereby assist the Party by nominating and working for
the election of delegates who will in turn nominate for different
offices, not office seekers, but men who will serve honesily the
County of Maui. To begin right means to end well.

REPORT OF COUNTY ATTORNEY
For the Month of July, 1906.
To the Honorable Hoard of Supervi
sors within nnd for the County of
I herewith submit my report for
the month of July.
Criminal eases during- the month of
July: The report of the Deputy
County Attorney, nnd of the several
Depul v 'iheriffs throughout the Coun
ty, show some increase in the volume
of business curried on in tho several
district Court) during the month, but
these recoros nlso disclose the fact
that no cases of a verv senous naturs
have commanded the attention of the
authorities. One fact however, is
quite noticeable: Drunkedness, is
uecidedlv on the ii, crease. I nm sat
islied tl at this is very largely clue to
the decayed liquor It nislal ion that at
present graces "ur Statute books; a
system that generously permits any
one who walks on to leys, and can
either bey, borrow or steal One Hun
dred dolla's, to open up a "place of
business" which (he Territorial gov
ernment hinds itself to protect.
In the matter of the petition of S.
Ahtni and others toneerninir the
citizenship of u. (.. Akniui, and re
queslititf his reiuov.il a-- a police ofli
Certain nilichi vit.s comce rninfi the
citizenship of Al r. Akunu have be n
taken in the cily ol Hnnolu u, and,
as 1 have been informed are i.ow in
the hand, of the Depart'iitnt of
the Atlci ney denerul. It was under
stood lie st allidavits were to be for
wardid to me in order that I might
have the use of them in making up
report to your Honorable body on
this subject. Through some oversight,
they have not been transmitted
Under date of July 23rd I addressed
a communication to the Attorney
General requesting that these affida
vits be forwarded. So far I have re
ceived no reply. I do not wish to
make my report until ail of the facts
obtainable are befote me. Further,
as I believed I stated to you in my
June report, whether Mr. Akana is
or is not an American citizen cannot
in any way affect his legal status as
a police oflicer. .
In the matter of drafting Ordi
nances granting the Kaeleku Sugar
Company permission to construct and
operate a railroal across Government
road near the mill at liana, and to
change location of present railroad
crossing on Honomaelc trail.
The Kaeleku Sugar Company was
to have prepared and have forward
ed .to me tracings and surveys such
as would enable this office to draft
the desired ordinances. Not having
heard from the Company I addressed
a communication to them, requ3stiug
that they take action and forward
the necessary tracings ani surveys.
So far I have received.no reply to
my communication, thus making it
impossible for this ollice to lntelli
gently pioceed. Privileges extend
ed to private individuals and cor
porations involving some riht or
easement over public highways
should be so clearly wotded that
there can never, arise any question
as to just what the respective rights
of the parties are.
