Proposed changes At a recent meeting of the Board of
in road system. Supervisors a resolucion was offered by
Supervisor Haia that if passed will make a very great, change in
the system of road work and the matter of conducting the same.
The plan is to have the office of County Engineer done away with
and the work in each District under separate supervision and con
trol. This means the abandonment of a system of intelligent work and
the substitution of a plan that has neither head nor tail.
After years of work and thoughtful consideration the plan now
in vogue includes a comprehensive scope of work. Under the
present system accounts are kept of each section of road work and
the Board can see at once what is being done and the cost of the
same on any road or part of any rond. While this might be includ
ed later in the proposed plan it is not reasonable to except inex
perienced men to conduct the work of road building in as satis
factory nor as intelligent a manner as one trained to that kind of
work. It is absurd to expect any member of the Supervisors to
do expert road building. That is not their line of work.
It seems to us that if any one in the employ of the Board is not
satisfactory it is the duty of the Board to secure the services of
some one who is satisfactory. We say this without wishing to cast
any reflection on the work of any one in particular. We feel how
ever that no one should be dismissed simply because he is not
satisfactory to the Home Kule element and because he assisted in
It certainly would be the greatest cause of satisfaction to the
Home Rulers if they could create a division in the ranks of the
Republicans and weaken them in the coming campaign.
We know that Supervisor Haia is acting from good motives and
is seeking to advance the interests of the County that he repre
sents but no one is infallible and all of us make mistakes. It would
be well if the Board would carefully consider the resolution before
it is finally acted upon.
It is more that probable that the present Legislature will give
to the Counties so much more work than they have had in the past
that the services of a skilled engineer and road builder will be
imperative if we ever hope to have good grades and the class of
roads that our taxes justify.
Company I. The work of our company of militia at the annual
encampment in Honolulu is a source of pride to the citizens of
Captain Bal and the other officers are entitled to the gratitude of
all for the excellent training of the men under them. The majority
of the men in the company were enlisted during January this year.
The colonel gave the order to the whole command permitting
the men in each company to complete the shooting at twohundred,
three hundred, and five hundred yards ranges, at their home
On their departure it was noticed that the men went through
their work in a manner that left no doubt that the company would
receive credible notice in the metropolis. The markmanship of
the company and otherwork done was excellent.
In times of peace we are too apt to underestimate the value of
the militia but in case of a riot their services are inestimible.
That Loan It strikes the people of Maui as being a little
Fund. peculiar that the Governor recommends the
authorization of another loan and recommends that all of the fund
be expended on improvements in Honolulu except a small item for
While Oahu is entitled to her just share of public improvements
it is an outrage that we are eternally taxed for that islands benefit
while imperative improvements on Kauai, Maui and Hawaii are
entirely negelected. Will our legislators sit in idleness while this
sort of thing goes on as they have in the past. Or will they enlist
the members ol the other islands in the cause of justice and force
the Executive to render each island its due? If the members of
the Legislature and Senate do not succeed in getting for this is
land what we are justly entilted to they will be severely censured
and their political sun will have set.
