Ask Legislature To Fix Date of Meeting of the
Board by Which Laborers Will Get
Pay for Full Month.
TO ENTERTAIN VISITING CONGRESSMEN.
Citizens' Meeting at Court House Takes Steps to Entertain
Congressmen and Acquaint Them with Our
Needs. Committee is Appointed.
AN IMPORTANT RBSOLUT10N.
At the last meeting of the Board
of Supervisors of the County of
Maui a resolution was unanimous
ly carried asking the Legislature
to fix the date for the meeting of
the Board that will enable the road
authorities to get their pay rolls to
the County Clerk in time after the
close of the month so that the la
borers may bo paid in full for each
monthi work instead of for a part
of the month as is made necessary
at tho present time.
This same resolution was unani
mously passcd-tho lnttor part of
last year and was endorsed by the
Central Committee of the Repub
lican party but a joker was put in
the bill introduced by Coelho that
nullified the purpose of the bill
and if left as a law in its present
shape would mean much dissatis
faction among the laboring men of
The resolution adopted by the
Board was as follows:
.-. Whereas, a meeting of the Board
of Supervisors of tho County of
Maui was held on tho 15th day of
December, 190(5, for tho purpose of
discussing and adopting recommen
dations for appropriate legislation
to be submitted to tho Legislative
Session, at which, by invitation of
tho Board all heads of County De
partments and many of the pro
minent citizens of the County of
Maui wero present; and
Whereas, al said meeting, among
others, tho following item, by una
nimous vote of all present, was in
serted in said list of recommenda
tions to tho Legislature, twit:
That the County Act he so amend
ed that regular sessions of tho
Board of Supervisors bo hold on
the first Wednesday after tho 5th
day of each month " and
Whereas, a meeting of the Rep
ublican County Central Committee
of the County of Maui was hcld'nt
tho Republican Headquarters at
Wailuku; County of Maui, on the
10th day of January, 1907, for a

JAS. N. K. KEOLA, Notary Public Sec, Jud. Circuit,
like purpose, at which Mere present
by invitation members of the
Board of Supervisors and Heads of
Departments of the County -of
Maui and other prominent citizens,
at which meeting the Hon. W. J.
Coelho acted as Secretary; and
Whereas at said meeting, a reso
lution of the same te.ho'r as Hint
abovo mentioned, to wit: That
the County Act be so amended
that regular sessions of the Board
of Supervisors be held on the first
Wednesday after the 5lh day of
each month " was passed
with tho unanimous support of all
precincts represented; and
Whereas, it appears from the act
recently passed by the legislature
now in session that tho honorable
members thereof have not been
properly informed of the nature of
said recommendations, from the
fact that the said act so passed
utterly fails to attain the object in
tended by the recommendations;
Whereas, the main object desir
ed in-said recommendations was to
provide sufficient time botween tho
closing day of each month and the
date of tho subsequent meeting ,to
enable the officials in the various
outlying districts, somo of them
residing on separate islands, pro
perly to prepare reports of work
and expenditures, and to make out
and have signed payrolls and bills;
' Whereas, under tho present act
this is absolutely impossible when
the date of the meetings of the
Board of Supervisors falls, as it
now frequently does, and hereafter
will, on the first, second, third,
fourth or fifth day of tho month,
owing to tho great distanco to bo
overcome, with uncertain modes of
travel, and infrequent mail 'service
for tho outlying districts, and
' Whereas Wednesday is the most
convenient day of the week for
said meetings, on account of the
timo of the regular steamers from
the outlying districts; and
Whereas, it is impracticable for
tho Board of Supervisors' of tho
County of Maui to meet aftencr
than once in each month for the
reason that that, in such event, the
Supervisors from the Districts of
Molokai and liana would be re
quired practical to maintain
their residences at the Count seat,
contrary to the provisions of sec
tion 17, Chapter 7, of Act 39 Ses
sion Laws of 1905; and
Whereas, tho temporary expedi
ent adopted by tho lWrd of Super
visors of tho County of Maui of
closing tho fiscal month on the
25th day of each month, whilo im
perative under the present Act, is
not satisfactory in that it leads to
much confusion in preparing re
ports, payrolls, and bills and re
sults in much dissatisfaction among
laborcr.s, as well as annoyanco to
those supplying materials to the
Now Therefore, Bo it rosolvod by
the Board of Supervisors of tho
County of Maui, in regular session;
assembled, that the Honorable
members of the Senate and the
House of Representative? and His
Excellency the Governor of the
Territory of Hawaii bo and they
hereby are respectfully petitioned
to prepare, pass and sign, respec
tively ench an Act or an amend
ment to an Act that will fix tho
date of regular meetings of the
Board of Supervisors of the County
of Maui at either (I) The first Wed
nesday after the 5th day of each
month, which would fall not ear
lier than the Gth nor later than
the 12th of each month; or (2) The
second Wednesday of each month,
which would fall not earlier- than
the 8th nor later than the 15 of
cacli month; and
He It Further Resolved, that a
copy of this resolution be forward
ed by the first mail to the mem
bers of the Senate and House of
Representatives from the County
of Maui, the President of the Sen
ate, the Speaker of tho House of
Representatives, and to the Gover
nor of the Territory of Hawaii.
