Salaries Versus A study of th proceedings of t ho Hoard
Improvements. f Supervisor reveals the fact that at
every meeting pressure is Wrought, to boar to incrouso salaries in
many directions and pi ve employment to men regardless of whether
they are needed.
The fault is not altogether with the ollieers who recommend the
added expense nor is it with the Hoard who allows the outlay of
the peoples money. All of these men are accountable to the voters
for their positions and pressure is brought to bear to raise I his
mans salary or to create a new otlice for this 'nun or that and the
The matter then comos before the Hoard and the ollieer making
the request, in order to square himself with his constituents makes
a fight for the additional man. The members of the Hoard are also
looking to the will of the people and while fully convinced that the
expenditure is not of so great advantage to the public as the build
ing of roads or some other public improvement bow to the pres
sure of the people and grant the request.
As an instance of what is going on we may call attention to the
fact that it is costing the tax payors of this county over thirty
thousand dollars per year to pay the salaries of the police and the
amount is steadily increasing. On the mainland this wouli he con
sidered a criterion that crime is rampant hero as there is probably
not another place in the stales or territories where the police cost
so much according to' population as they do here but if we take up
the report of the last grand jury we find that that body returned
but eight indictments most of whom were either acquitted or found
guilty of minor offences.
In a mainland community of the same population that we have
here we would think the expenditure of five thousand dollars
per year for police exorbitant and are the people here so much
worse than they are on the mainland? It has not been our experi
ence with the people here that they are. The Hawaiian.? are a quiet
peaceful people. The Portuguese are noted for being a law abid
ing class and as for the Chinese they are usually so peaceable that
they cannot be kicked into a fight. As for the Japanese in the past
. they occasionally got into trouble but not to any great extent and
during the past few years they have improved very much in their
behavior. Nearly all of the offences committed are of a trivial
nature and the community would be quite as well oil' ,if a great
majority of the cases brought into court were settled at homo with
out the intervention of the law.
One of the Supervisors ao least takes the stand that it is better
to pay the efficient police officers well and even raise their salaries
substantially than to employ so many who are not needed and use
the public funds for the improvements needed on the roads and
elsewhere for the benefit of the public and incidentally for the
mass of the laboring people.
In this all thinking people must agree. This plan would give the
people something in return for their money and at the same time
give employment to the needy.
Let us have better roads and fewer policemen.
Oil for At the last meeting of the Hoard of Supervisors
the roads. the matter of oiling the newly macadamed roads
was taken up but nothing was decided in the matter.
The Union Oil company offered to furnish all the oil the County
might wish at the rate of one dollar per barrel. 1 he oil was to he
of not less than fifty per cent mineral matter.
It has been practically demonstrated that oil of this nature is the
best obtainable and that when once applied it will keep the i roads
in good condition for at least one year while oil of a lower grade of
mineral matter will be of much less value and in consequence prove
Ihe company offers to keep the oil stored for the county as long
as it may desire aud require the county to pay for the same as it
uses the oil provided the county will build its own storage tank as
a guaranty of good faith.
The supervisors are now starting the grading and will macadam
the road to Kahului soon and the proper time to oil the macadam
is as soon after the same is completed as possible as then the oil
will take hold of the porous surface and remain permanently. If
the Board waits until the roads become compact the oil will not
enter the soil and consequently must either be scarrified at an
additional expense or be a useless application.
Good business judgement will dictate the immediate erection of
suitable oil tanks for oil of a large percentage of asphaltum and
the application of the same to the roads as soon after the com
pletion of the same as possible. This will make permanent roads
and allow time and money for the building of belt and sidoroads
that ai'e so much desired by a great majority of the people here.
Liquor Men Turned Down.
The Hoard of Liq .or License Com
missioners for the County of Maui
met at the public room of the Masonic
temple Monday and considered the
applications of seven dealers in in
Four applications were refused.
They were Otto S. Meyer, Lin Hec,
and Chang Tung of Molokai and M.
lmamura Co. of liana.
' All of the Molokai applicants were
refused a 1 cense on the ground that
they were running stores in the same
buildings iu which they had their
liquor business aud between which
doors opened allowing entrance from
one to the other coi.trary to law.
There wis nothing against the men
or the way they conducted I heir ousi
ncss other than that above meiitir-nrt!
which being contrury tc law the
Hoard was compelled to i.-efuso the
license to each of them.
It is probable that each one of the
applicants will remodel his building
and close up the doors between the
saloon and the store by making h
solid wall between and then apply

A Fnniily Row.
The neace and quietude of the town

street Tuesday evcn'ng of number of
angry Japanese. An old couple fob

were giving chase to a young man
and a young wiman who lost no time
in making use of their spiriting abil
lies to seek the protection and shelter
of the police station. As the old couple
ran they called lustily for help aud

Relief From Horn-Fly.
1' roin the nature 01 the case it is
impossible to estimate the amount of
loss suffered by cattle men of these
islands from injury by fly pest, par
ticu'arly the horn-fly. This injury is
many fold. The pain and los of sub
stance from the amount of blood these
flies withdraw from the animals is
only eoual to the constant worry and
torment. Sores are kept open by
these pernicious pests and frequently
aggravated to the extreme. All
animals are driven to despair and
many doubtless 1 se their lives as a
result of the incessant r.ttaeks.
As stated in the last report (100G)
of the Heard of Agriculture and
Forestry, Mr. Koebele has giver
much attention and work to the
enemies of these pe'sts in Arizona last
year. Among other things he sent
here for propagation was a rather
smalt, more or lets ant-like, four
winged fly bred from pupae collected
iu compost matter. This fly lias been
bred here it: large numbers and dis
tribuated so far as they lasted, over
all the islands about a year og A
ccuple of months ago it was discover
ed in large numbers on a dairy near
Honolulu by the Hoard's entomolo
gists and, the few flies upon the
animals there, and the eas.e and com
fort that these animals see.ned to
enjoy, gave proof that something was
doing execution among the pesis.
From maggots and pupae jollecled
these large numbers of the parasites
were bred. These parasites liie
Hoard is now distributing as fast us
they issue. In cooperation with Dr.
