SATURDAY. - - - DECEMBER 15, 1906
To Improve Our The County Dottrel of Supervisors will meet
County Laws. today and the most important m:itter for
deliberations will be the consideration of charges in our county
laws that may advantageously be made by the legislature.
County Government is not only new in the Territory but to a
great majority of our people it was an unknown quantily less than
two years ago. It is but natural that some parts should befound
faulty and such changes hs will advance the interests of the com
munity should be made. As the Board will be assisted by the
heads of the various departments they should be in a position to
make intelligent suggestions to the legislature which is the body
which must make the needed changes. One change that should
be made for the beneitit of Maui County is the charge in date of
meetings. It is just and proper that Molokai ana nana snouia
have a representative each in the Board and yet as the day of meet,
ing is set for Tuesday it is impossible for these members to be
present the first day unless they come six days ahead of time. A
change to one day later, would be to the interests of all as then the
members from the outer districts coild reach Wailuku by steamer
on Wednesday and return to their homes on Saturday.
Another matter that seems to us unjust is the small pay received
by the Sheriff and some of the Deputy Sheriffs.
The most difficult territory to travel over in Hawaii is a great
portion of Maui. It takes several days of hard riding on good
horses to cover the different districts of the County and yes the
salary paid the Sheriff is less than that received by the Sheriff on
Kauai where every foot of road in the County may be covered in
three days and every settlement reached in two days even from
the most distant part of the County.
If the Sheriff does his duly here as every officer should do the
salary reeived will not pay his expenses much less allow him a
reasonable amount for his work.
The same mav be said of some of the Deputy Sheriffs. The
Makawao District.' for instance is so large and there is so much
riding to do that no man would undertake to do the work for the
salary paid unless he had other business that would assist htm in
earning a livelihood. While there are other County officers in the
class we give these as illustrations.
There are certain extensions of county government that we believe
Khnuld ha made bv the legislature. Amone these we believe all
appropriations for roads and bridges that have formerly been
carried out or allowed to lapse, should be placed in the hands of
the County Supervisors who are in closer touch with the people
and can better judge the needs and'wishes of the taxpayers than
the Department of Public Works ever will be.
If the Supervisors of the different Counties will unite in an effort
to reform the County law and make a united effort to get certain
measures through theiegislature it is certain their assiatance will
be appreciated by the legislators and their efforts will be crowned

Hawaiian Needs. Prank P. Sargent has finished his study
of local needs and conditions and has returned to the coast and on
his way will write out his report to the President. '
One stand that he has taken that will meet with approval from
all who wish to see Hawaii an Americanized Territory is his oppo
sition to bringing Philippinos and his approval of the plan to bring
more white labor from Europe that will form the rfucleus of an
American laboring population, a class that is much needed and
that is almost wholly lacking at the present time. While the Japa
nese do fairly good work on the plantations and at a less wage
than other labor it is certain that the American Government will
not tolerate their employment forever to the exclusion of a white
class a laborers that will tend to build up the country rather thun
drain it of the money to tho advantage of a foreign Nation. The
sooner this is realized by the planters the better it will be for all
concerned for a change will surely come and that will not 'be in
the distant future. That part of the Presidents message that re
fers to Hawaii makes it plain that he is determined to take a strong
hand in Hawaiian affairs and it matters not wkether he has been
correctly imformed on local conditions as it is evident that he has
made up his mind and will force a change iu looal conditions
There is no power here strong enough to brook the tide.

It is the intention of Mr. Moody to manufacture sashes and
doors and such other adjuncts as may be required by the people
of the island. Aside from the class of work usually turned out by
a mill of this class furniture made of koa will be manufactured.

Kahului is building up faster than any town in the islands and
when the leases now held by Chinese and Japanese expires and new
buildings erected which are planned Kahului will become the cen
ter of attraction for the island.
