Uiuler tlie auspices of tlio Portu
guese Republican Club County En
gineer Hugh Howell replied to the
charges of Supervisor VV. H. Corn-
well last Saturday ovtnintf. His
speech was well received and was In
part as follows:
Mr. W. H. Cornwell who is now
seeking the honor of reelection as
Supervisor of this district has pub
licly stated that I brought in or two
bills to the Board of Supervisors
which should have been piopcrly
chamed to the Territory, nr to a
Territorial Contractor; that, these
bills wore brought in in the month of
October, for work done in July and
Auguest; that the Board passed a d
paid one of .the claims. He holds that
this proceeding was irregular and
illegal, and for th so reasons the
Board should not have passed the
claim. St ipped of all its. trinuniuis,
mil superfluous hot air, this is Id
statement in a nutshell. We will dis
cuss the question of Illegality and the
irregularity shortly. But in pass
ing, let us see how closely tne in
terests of the public are guarded, by
this young man, who is so ready, to
vilify his colleagues.
Let us assumo for the moment that
the passage of this bill was unlaw
ful. After tho sm ke and ill smell
iug vapors of this Iao Bombshell had
cleared away from Its lirs explosion-
in Lahaina, certain parties who take
an interest in public affairs to,ok oc
casion to look up tho minutes of the
Board expectinu to hud Mr. Corn
well's vote of '"no" recorded on this
particular bill. What did they iindV
Tlioy found not only that Mr. Corn-
well had voted "yea" but that he
himself had introduced the resolution.
Tho records are right over thore in
tho Clerk's office. They are public
property. Go look for yourselves
Gentlemenl After his attention had
been-ealled to this lapsa of memory
how does he meet the Issue? First he
said that lie was in the minority, and
could not help himself. If he believeU
that the bill was illej.nl, coulrtlie not,
I say should he not have pit himself
on record as being opposed to it?
Then he says ho voted for it to catch
tho other villains in a trap. What
for? To spring it on the public and
gnin votes? To deliberately Intro
duee a resolution to misappropriate
as he claims over $G00 00 of. the
County funds lo gain votes for .him
self? Does not this look something
like throwing away the public funds
for his own personal benefit? He has
stated that, if he had voted no,", the
others would have been afraid, and
have reconsidered the bill. What If
they had? Isn't that what he is
there for? He has practically ad
mitted that he has been negligent
in rposely in order to have something
to say against his colleagues on the
Does this not mean that --nice tie
could not find anything i the whole
venr s work of the Board tncriticzo,
that he himself had lo introduee
something illegal as lie claims in or
der to eatch them? What! ha vo we
a second "Ha iter" here on Maui? If
this was his motive, in introducing
h.s bill, and advocating it, anil vot
ing for it, I submit to ou, fellow
citizens, do you call it, honorable?

O. W. L. perforated in the wrapper.
LOOK FOR THE -PERFORATION.''
Is it honest? Is ho fulfilling his
sacred duty as a Supervisor if he
does such tilings to gain voles?
Not being quito satisfied with that
line of defense, after It was discover
ed who was chiefly responsible for
thfs looting of the Treasury, if there
wore any he tries another tack. He
denies that he introduced I lie resolu
tion, Yes I He states that the
Clerk simply enters on the minutes
that Mr. So and So introduces a re
solution seconded by. Mr. So and So,
and that Is all there is to it. What,
does he mean to say that our County
Clerk Win. F, Kane, "Kuiu." on of
the brightest and mostuprightryoung
Hawailaus on Maui deliberately falsi
'lies the records? Does ho forget
that these minutes are always read
at the beginning of every meeting
every day and every and all rvees
sary corrections made and the whole
minutes annroved before tho close of (
each session? Can he evade tlio re
sv.onsibily of his resolution and his
votes in the Bnard meetings by any
such subterfuge as that? Is he so
careless of his responsibility?
I shall not weary you with lonjj
columns of figures as" they have
wearied-me from poi ing over them,
nor with the reading of voluminous
reports. There are ample records,
vouchers, and reports In mv office
and in tho office of tho County Cldk
to prove everything I am going to
tell vou, and I invito and would wel
eomo the most searching Investiga
tion ol tills as well as any other of
my official nets, by any citizens who
t.ikes enough interest in public affairs
lo call uiion me.
It Is i matter a record that the
Contractors of tlio Iao Roc.d became
so beset wit1: difficulties and the
work was drugging so slowly that
the Bondsmen were requested by the
Superln'endent of Public Works to
tako over the work about the middle
of last December. The Bondsm n.
went ahead in good faith and with
much energy attempted uncomplete
tho road. The Bondsman spout more
than $1,000.00 beyond ti.e amount
they were obligated for, v Inch shows
that their good faith amounted even
to generosity. Early in this year,
Mr. W. W. Harris, the Bondsman,
was advsed to throw up tho Con
ti act, forfeit his Bonds of $2500 00,
and turn the work over to the Gov
eminent. Mr. Cornwell s pleased to
call bun a fool. I believe that had he
not incurred a heavy loss as a result
of the Sau Francisco, disaster, he
would have persevered in his purpose
and completed tho road himself. Then
Mr. Cornwell would havo had no noli
tical timmuuilion at all. But in May.
lie was forced to throw up his hands
and turn the work over to tho Tee
ritorv. He has exhausted all of his
own funds and his power of borrow
ing. Tlio work was therefore turned
over to me by tho Superintendent,
of Public Works to complete it 'as
far as funds retained by the Tern
tory would allow.
I had already paid of the men for
the work done in the month of May,
as soon as tho payroll could bo mado
up at tho end or tho month advanc
ing my own personal funds for this as
I have usually done on Territorial
work, for it is not right to expect
laboring men to wait weeks and
weeks for their money.
Unscrupulous dealers sometimes place
inferior cigars in Owl Cigar boxes and sell
I then consulted tho Supervisors
not at a regular meeting, but bo
ween sessions, individually, and was
assured by a majority of them that
they would favor the County takine
over the work and completing it pro
vided they could bo shown that the
Bondsmen 1 ad fulfilled their nbliga
I did not see. Mr. Cornwell per
sonally at this time, but on a Hying
trip through AValluku I saw a mutual
friend and explained the situation to
him. The next time-1 came to Wal
luku, our mutual friend told nie that
he had seen Mr. Cornwell wl o as
jured him he would be in favor of the
County completing lli work provld
ed he could lie shown lhal tho Bonds
in, in lias spent the urn Hint of ni
uond on Iho road. 1 knew myself
that, the he had, but wished to i?et it
olll. Tally from the Superintend -nt of
Public W .irks. Here again was an-
other de-'ny, Hid not getting the
data in time, I stopped the work at
the end of July and paid olT tlio men.
The Board in Septer.iber instruct
ed me, upon motion of Mr. Cornwell,
to make a report uion the condition
of the road at thcSpct ial Session to
be held Sept 11th or 12th.
Mr. Cornwell and T went up Iao
and went Into the-uinltiv fully. The
report I made the Boar I was a
direct r suit of our conversation and
did not 'contain anything not tho
roughly discussed by lis.
The result of this repoi t was the
adoption of a resolution introduced
by Mr. Cornwell Appropriating the
$2500.00 as recommended.
At the following meeting which
v.as in the month of October, I pre
sented receipted payrolls for the
amount mention. d in my report. One
of these was passed by tl.e unanimous
vote of the Board, all members being
present, and the "ther, not appeal
ing in the form desired by tho Board,
was held over for correction.
No objection was mado by Mr.
Cornwell to either of those hills. The
error or form was noted by Mr. lien
ning, nnd nof by Mr. Cornwell. Tin
County Attorney was present at this
meeting, and passed upon the legal!
ty of this bill.
Now there is no doubt, aboutit that
the public and the Board of Super
visors, including Mr. Cornwell, want
to see tho Iao Road completed. There
is no doubt about it that Mr. Corn
well intended this and intended also
that I should be riimburscd for the
funds that 1 had been led byoclrcum
sianccs into advancing to keep the
Irregularity? Why certainly, iti
somewhat irregular for a private
citizen to advance his personal funds
to prevent a gang of poor laboring
men from wailing for their money.
What, if it is irrcgolai ? Who is the
loser? Havo I not tho right lo do so
if I choose, and I risk only my own
money? If the County sees fit' to, pay
rao back, thero can bo nothing irre
gular or, illegal about that, provid
ing they arc satisfied that tho money
has been spent on tho road. Of that
there is no question, nor lias there
