It has become a common saying w
Wailuku and other parts of Mud:
If you can not get what you want
in any other store go to the Maui
Drug Store they carry everything.
While this statement is as true as
it is flattering we would respectfully
suggest that our friends and patrons
come to us first, thus saving them
selves the trouble of running from
store to store without gutting what

The County Hoard of Supervis
ors monthly meeting was held thisj
week. Thursday was tho day on
which they met for tho first time
this month and after the routine
business of reading the minutes
which were approved Communica
tion were read. One of the first
was a letter from County Trea
surer L. M. Baldwin who wrote the
Board that ho had called the at
tention of the Territorial Auditor
to the fact that the county of Maui
was getting much less per month
than she is intitled to of tlie taxes
for each month and while ultimate
ly receiving all of her share was
being deprived of tho use of moneys
needed for present use. As a re
sult of tho efforts of the Treasurer
tho Auditor had forwarded an ex
tra ono thousand dollars as the
allowance for the month of Feb
ruary. This was good new3 to tho
Board as they are unable to begin
needed permanent improvements
for tho reason that they have not
thir available funds.
J. B. Kapihi wrote the Board
asking damages to the extent of
fifty dollars occasioned by persons
riding over some barren gulch
lands in order to make a crossing
where a bridge had washed out.
The Action on the matter was de
ferred to got further information
on the subject.
The Honolulu Iron Works wrote
asking that thoir certified checks
be returned but as tho Chairman
stated they bad already been re
turned by him no further action
was taken in the matter.
The County Attorney wrote the
Board in re perinanont crossings of
public highways by roads.
An application was made to the
Board by persons living on the
Waiheo side of the steel bridge at
the foot of Market street asking
that a stone wall be erected abovo
the bridge to prevent tho water
from cutting a new channel above
the bridge and damaging much
property below. Action deferred.

A communication was received
from Superintendent of Public
Works, Ilolloway to the effect that
a bill is now before tho Legislature
for the completion of the County
building. In case the work is done
the County will be paid back all
moneys expended and the County
will be expected to pay rental from
tho first of Fobruary.
A letter addressed to the County
Engineer from the Superintendent
of Public Works was to the effect
that he bad received a letter from
J. M. Vivas asking that a lease be
made out to one of his Japanese
clients to a piece of abandoned
road at the corner of the Waihee
Mill road for a consideration of
thirty dollars per annum. The
County Engineer was directed to
write tho Superintendent that the
Board considered tho road in ques
tion a -part of tho public highway
and subject to the controll of the
County Board of Supervisors of tli 3
County of Maui.
The County Engineer reported
on the condition of the roads of
Molokai where ho went last month
to make a careful inspection and
especially to learn whether it would
be best to build a road that is
washed by the sea on a higher
grade or repair the one on the low
er level. lie found the latter
course the better one as it will cost
much less than the former.
Tho chair called the attention of
tho Board to tho many errors re
ported in tho Evening Bulletin one
of which was the statement that
the Back and Sanitary Inspector
for Lahaina receives a salary of
$55.00 per month wbilo the Fish
Inspector receives the same amount
while as a matter of fact neither
of them receive any such an amout.
Kelnnoi stated that he was put
down as an assistant to tho County
Tho claim of Poruvia Goodness
as Hack Inspector for Wailuku
was turned down as the board had
not authorized his appointment but
had appointed George Weight to
that position. It was stated that
the Sheriff bad made tho appoint
mcnt without tho authority of the
Ono of tho most important mat
tors considered by tho board was
the resolution introduced by W
P. Haia discontinuing tho office of
County Engineer and turning over
all road work of each district to
tho Supervisors of each district.
Action on tho resolution was do-
ierreu as supervisor Kaiuo was
absent on account of illness and in
tho meantime the load work will
suffer as it is known tho system is
in a chaotic state.
Whilo Supervisor Haia is doubt
less honest in his position this is
tho most vicious matter yet broach
ed by tho Supervisors of the
County of Maui. As a political
inachino it has no parallel in the
history of the Territory, While
tho amount ol bjncllt to the tax
payors will bo of so small an
amount that it will bo not worth
considering. The number of ap
plications for lunas jobs can not be
estimated and as tho Supervisor
must either giro the same or lose
the votes bo will bo compelled to
either grant the request or suffer
defeat at tho next election.
LOCH GARVIUON THE HUGH.
The Loch Garvie with two thou
sand tons of nitrates aboard bound
for Honolulu grounded at Kamalo
Point on Mondoy morning at 7:15
She was from Chili and owing to
tho foulness of her bcttoni made
very slow time fifty oigbt days.
Different vessels have been pulling
at her but at last accounts was
still fast on the reef. Tho ground
ing of the vessel was due to the
fact that she was too close in when
the wind died down and tho cur
rant carried her in on the roof
where she struck bow on. She
has forty two feet of water astern
and it is believed that if the
weather permits she may bo light
ened abow and pulled off without
serious injury as sho is not leak
