the gentlemen arc informed of our wants and incidentally enter

A call has been issued by Mr. J. N. S. Williams, the Chairman or
the Committee appointed by the Waihiku District. Improvement
Association to confer with a committee ot' ci; v. .:) to be appointed
at the citizens meeting on the iih instant.
All should attend the meeting who believe in progress and assist
in the work before the committee.
To Change the The resolution introduced lust week
Sunday Law. to amend Act 15 of tin; session Laws of
190"), regulating the observance of Sunday, prohibiting the sale
of fruit, tobacco.ice cream, cigars or soua water, in stores or shops
dealing in other merchandise will be found one of the most un
popular measures proposed this session of tli'3 Legisla'.ure and
will doubtless meet defeat before it reaches the Governor.
There seems to be no good reason for such a bill as is proposed
to bo enacted. There are but few pi, ices where such commodities
are to be had on any day in the week except such places as are to
be prohibited the right to sell them while a great majority of people
will feel that their rights are being interfered with by the enact
ment of such a law.
One result of the passage of the law will be to put a stop to the
playing of base ball on Sunday as it is out of the question to expect
the various teams to pay for their own equipment and then give
free exibitions for the benefit of the general public. This sport
has done more to improve the health and morals of the community
than any game introduced hero and should be encouraged by
all who would see some harmless diversion from the usual routine
kept up. Base ball practically put an end to gambling in Wailuku
and any measure that may interfere with the sport will be resent
ed by the better class of people on the' island and its promoters
may expect defeat at the polls in furturo should they dare to come
before the people for reeled ion.
We understand Representative Kill una who introduced the bill
is not its author.
Grab Various measures before tin; Legislature prove
Legislation. beyond question that some few of our legis
lators are thinking more of political graft for their friends than of
the welfare of the community. Salaiies are to bo raised indis
criminately while many new oliices are to be created for the sole
purpose of furnishing jobs for politicians.
Senator Makckau has introduced a bill in the Senate to create
the office of Registrar of conveyances for each County and lix the
salary of each. The salary proposed to bo paid each registrar is
so high that it is amazing. In some instances a county registrar is
to be paid more than is now paid the Registrar of conveyances for
the whole territory. In the states and territories of the mainland
the office is filled by the County Clerk and there is no good reason
why the work could not be satisfactorily done by that oil'ico here.
Copyists there outer the work and it is then proof read by the
Clerk. This could easily be done here and in case any change is
made should be the plan of our law makers instead of wasting the
peoples money in creating jnnocessary offices.
The judicious expenditure of large sums of money for the build
ing of macadamized roads of good grade and the improvement of
our harbors and wharves will do much more to advance the terri
tory than almost any course thai can be persued. The benefits
will be lasting and the work will be to the advantage of a great
many of our laborers while the creation of useless offices will be
to the interest of but a few politicians.
The Usual The present legislature is making the same mi
Mistake. take that has been made by all of the legislatures
of the past in as much as they are appropriating more money for
various measures than there is available funds to pay the bills and
consequently leave the chief executive in a position to select what
amounts he will choose to have expended which always means
Many members seem to think they have done their full duiy by
their constituents when they pass large appropriations for their
respective districts regardless of the needs of the community and
when it is found that they have appropriated more money than
there is cash to meet the bills they disclaim all responsibility and
oin the mob that condemns the Governor.
While the Governor may justly becrkieised fur his favoring any
one locality to the detriment of another it is nevertheless true that
the members of the legislature are equally to blame for the con
dition of affairs that makes it possible for the Governor to make
There are two ways that would reuiedj this evil coudiiion. One
of them would be to pass a law making it obligatory on the i irt of
the Governor to have a prorata amount of each appmpriat i-m ex
ponded during the term for which the appropriation was made.
Another would bo to keep the appropriations within the income of
the Territory thus insuring the expenditure of all of the iunJs
that the legislature wished appropriated.
While much that the legislature is doing is meeting the appro
bation of the voters this foolish course means the loss of many
appropriations that are especially desired.

A communication from the Super
intendent of Public Works in answer
to u:i iiapiiry by Senator Coclho, re
luiive to the pay oT laborers on Maui
for October and Novemuer, ltMlli,
was not satisfactory and a few re
marks were made on the subject.
Cot Too was for sending it at once to
tne .' udgc of t he Second Circuit and
have the matter investigated by him.
In his opinion the superintendent
was trying to cover up a deal by
which the men had be m kept out of
their pay. He had merely replied
to the query by saying the voucl crs
are or. file. Senator Coelho remark
ed that vouchers are always igucil
but the men aie sometimes kept out
of their money by the person who
uses it in the payment of bis personal
debts and who ft. turns it when coi .
vetiient for him lo do so.
Senator Chillingworlh contended
that the reply of the supei in! endent
was a due and correct form and op
pose! the action of sending the mat
ter lo the circuit judge. if the men
have net bei n paid it is a case far
the g aiui jury, noi for the judge.
Senator Ka'atna suggested that it
be. sent to a committee for investiga
tion ai.d suggested the Ways and
Mea :s. Senator D uvsett agreed
wiih him but. thought the Public Ex
penditure committee was the one to
handle it, and to that one it went.
