The County Supervisors held
their monthly meeting bogining
Wednesday of this week.
All of the Supervisor weie pre
sent except S. E. Kaiue who is still
ill at bis homo anil unable to at
tend the meetings.
After the rending of the minutes
which weie approved communica
tions won read. A lotter from Tho
Von tlniuin Young Company was
to the effect that they had fully
expected the arrival of the gasolino
engine ordered last fall months ago
and that they had again cabled
the manufacturers to rush the ship
ment of tb.e same. They believe
tho engine will bo here soon.
The Clerk was instructed to
write 'C. 15. Wells for the return of
the rock crusher. Tho same is to
be delivered as soon as possible.
A letter from the Superintendent
of the Leahi homo stated that one

A letter was read from tho
County Engineer to L. Von Tom-
sky, manager of the Ilaleakala
Ranch, calling his attention to the
fact that the fencing of tho old
road was in violation of law and
that the opening of tho new road
there by him was illegal until aut
horized by the county board. Tho
letter stated that Mr. II. A. Bald
win had gone over the road with
tho County Engineer and acknow
ledged the reasonableness of tho
position of the County Engineer
and that he had ordered the fences
on the lands of tho Maui Agricul
tural Company moved back to the
width asked for by the County
Engineer. Tho tone of tho letter
written by Mr. Von Temsky in
dicated tho desire oh his part to
arrange amicably with tho County
Board so that tho interests of the
public would bo protec ted as well
as tho interests of tho ranch.

Tho report of tho County At
torney was read in which he dwelt
on the work done by his office dur
ing the month. Much of the at
torneys time was occupied dining
tho month in Circuit Court woik
during tho time, succeeded in
bringing about the conviction of
several persons charged with serious
crini's. One of these was that of
Meloana K.'iaipalaoa who plead
guilty to charge of perjury. An
other was that of John Rodrigucs
who plead guilty to tho charge of
burglary and was puntenced to five
years imprisonment at hard labor.
The report called the attonion of
the hoard to the fact that the legis
lature had passed a law making it
obligatory to pay all income tax or
in the county where the principd)
property of the tax payer was sit
uated. Tho report of the Sheriff was
read and placed cn file.
lie reported tho conduct of the
police as being good, lie had sus
pended two officers, John. Brown
Jr. and Paikaka for boing drunk
while on duty but had reinstated
both. David Taylor was dismissed
from the force on account of being
implicated in a forgery ca?o and
has since been bound . over to ap
pear before the next grand jur'.
His report spoko highly of the
work being done by Pcruvia Good
ness who is acting as hack inspec
tor by direction of tho sheriff and
asked for his appointment by tho
Board as such officer for -the Wai
luku District. No action was tak
en at tho time by tho Board as
they appointed Georgo Weight to
tho position some months ago and
ho is still holding that oJllce. The
report dealt with tho .existence of
gambling houses in town run by
Chinese and Japanese and recom
mended the appointment of specials
among that raco for the purpose of
putting a stop to tho gambling.
The games are Clio Fa.
Tho Sheriff recommended a re
gulation by tho Board requiring
all hacks in tho towns of Wailuku
and Kahului to bo required to re
main in certain designated- places
for nil hacks when not-carrying
passengers instead of blocking tho
streot3 us if the custom now.
Tho roport of JIack and Sanitary
o!Tur Georgo Weight wus read and
placed on filo. The reports of tho
Sanitary officers of Mnkawao and

Kahakuina put in a claim at tho
Inst mooting of the Board for 50.00
dnmagos for tho use of a little strip
of his land used by tho public since
the washout of Waikina bridge in
getting across tho stream there.
County Engineer Howoll got tho
parties interested in the hind to
givo a pormanont right of way for
tho sum of $20.00.
The matter of an odorless ex
cavator for tho use of Wailuku was'
disouieciMind the Supervisors wore'
united in their stand that it is un
fair to the tax payers to have the
excavators paid for by the territory
and. then turn all of them over to
the County of Oahu that uro not
required by tho Board of Health
that that County may use ''them
free of charge for street sprinkling
purposes when they are needed in
other localities than Honolulu.
In tho matter of the appoint
ment of a hack inspector for the
Wailuku District tho Board dis
approved of the appointment of
Poruvia Goodness by the Sheriff as
no separate appropriation had been
made by tho Board for such a pur
pose. While it is true that Sani
tary officer Georgo Weight has
performed the duties of that office
it i not as a separate off ico but his
duties are principally that of Sani
tary officer and Fish inspector
while ho performs tho Hack in
spectors duties free of charge. This
would scorn to preclude tho right
of the Sheriffs appointee to claim
county pay as no appropriation
has been made by the Supervisors
for that purpose. Tho question of
the fitness of Goodness for the posi
tion has never been questioned.
He is an active man and would
doubtless make a good officer for
that or any 0110 of a number of

Such was the result of last Sun
days game of baseball between the

Tho Kahului team appeared in
natty uniforms, while pants and
red sweators with tho initiate K.
A. C. neatly sewed on tho breast.
Thoy looked like winners from tho
very start and were prepared to
meet a strong team from tho other
side of the island.
As it was tjioy were disappointed
for the team that came over was
oven worse than the team that
played a practice gamo with the
Kahuluis a few weeks ago and
were very much in need of prac
tice. In fact, thore was no go
about thorn, and it seemed as if
they were forced into tho game.
There wore errors made by thorn in
every stage of the game.
The Kahuluis scored in evoi'y
inning but tho sixth and seventh
when the Lahainas seemed to have
taken up a little courage, having
scored their first run in the sixth
inning.' Hampton df tho Kahuluis thon
undortoak to pitch the eigth inning
for tho Lahainas in order to im
prove the game, but Simpson of
the Kahuluis scorod his first run
The audience was greatly dis-
ploased at the kind of ball played
by tho Lahainas and wore loud in
their expressions of disploasuro.
Tomorrow's game botwocn the
Morning Stars and Waikapus pro
