MEETING OF THE IMPROVE
The meeting of the Wailuku
District Improvement Association
that wns to have been held on
Thursday of last week was adjourn
ed toiMonday of this week at which
time a good attendancewas present.
President R. A. Wadsworth pre
sided. Tho minutes of tho last
meeting were road and approved.
The president stated that the exe
cutive committee had not been
called together but would be some
day soon for tho purpose of draft
ing an order of business.
A general discussion of the
matter of estrays running at large
on the public highways brought
out very severe criticism of the
parties whose business it is to see
that they are kept from the streets
and public roads and especially so
since thousands of young trees aro
now growing along the road3 that
will if cared for mean a great thing
to the public in future in making
our highway cool and attractive.
The same committee that was
appointed at the last meeting was
reappointed and instructed to
make representations to the Board
of Supervisors concerning tho bad
state of affairs and request them to
take tho necessary, steps to stop the
practice that is damaging the
young shade trecB and annoying
persons who travel tho public high
The matter of' the uncompleted
sidewalks came up and tho County
Engineer stated that as soon ns the
engine for tho crusher camofit
would be put in operation and the
sidewalks completed. The atten
tion of the Association was called
to the fact that recently a certain
individual had moved his fence
out' into the street about four feet
and erected a building on land
that hud' been used as a part of
tho stroet for tho last twenty years
making tho street much narrower
than it should be. v
A motion carried requesting the
County Board to have a mapinado
showing tho widths of the various
streets r.nd providing for the nam
ing of tho same.
County Engineer, Howell, stat
ed, in reply to a- question as to
when tho various sidewalks would
bo completed, that he was at work
at present on an estimato of tho
necessary amounts for the various
districts and the different kinds of
work to be done during tho present
year and that tho Board would
probably act on the same at thoir
next meeting. A resolution was
then passed renuostinK the Board
to completo tho sidewalk on Mar
ket atreot extension, Kalua Avenue
crossing, High street and Vineyard
atreot as soon as possible.
II. M. Coke brought up tho Ka
hului streota macadamizing matter
and called tho attention of the
members to tho doplorablo condi
tion of the thoroughfare th'ero. A,ll
ncognizo that roads leading toKa
lnlui aro used by tho people of
Maui more than any road on the
island and as Kahului is and nl
wayp will be the principal port of
entry the roads there should be
tho best on the island whereas
there arc now in a disgraceful
It was explained that tho old
rockcrusher was practically out of
commission and the onginc for the
new one haB nol yet arrived and
therefore the work could not -be
done until it arrives.
County Engineer, Howell offered
to furnish the Association the pro
posed estimates of expenditures for
tho various classes of work to be
done for suggestions from the Association.

Mr. Campsie is ono of the most
able head lunas in the Torritory
