"Heinle" was Badly Joshed.
The third base bleacher gang went
to Aala park Sunday afternoon to see
the ball game and what they didn't
say to the poor unfortunates who
came under their disapproval is
hardly worth mentioning. There
wore two victims in particular. The
first and most important was Band
master Berger. The band played
airs of all kinds during the gamo
which interrupted the remarks being
mado by Doonio Hariman, Jack and
Walter Doyle and Henry Roth. They
promptly turned looso on him, ad
dressing him fondly as "Heinic." Ho
was requested to play at Waik'iki, to
start In opposition to a steam siren
and the qualities of the music render
ed wore reflected on in a most scan
dalous mannor. Tho result of the
joshing was that Berger became ex
ceedingly angry and left the leader
ship of the band to ono of the Ha
waiian boys, retiring from the Mold.
Another victim was Supervisor
S"m Dwight, who seated himself In
tho bandstand. He was alone in the
stand, as, by or3or ot tho Board of
Supervisors no common people aro
allowed In tho structure when the

he dropped his cigar and stooped to

to do anything as cheap as that but
to light a new one.

I'llR APPEAL BOARD RUNDHRS
The Tax Appeal Board for the
County of Maui mot at tho First

day and rendered its decision in
tho appeals of the Wniluku Sugar
Company and the Hawaiian Com
mercial and Sugar Company.
The appeal of the Hawaiian
Commercial and Sugar Conipan
from the decision of the Assessor
in not allowing them to deduct
from their incomo tho amount
claimed by thorn for depreciation
of plant and machinery was sus
tamed bv the Board. C. D. Lufkin
In the matter of tho appeal of
tho Wailuku Sugar Company from
the action of tho Asses-sor in in
creasing the valuation of the pro
perty of the Company from $1,700,
000 as returned by them to $2,380,
000 the Board fixed the valuatio
of the property at $2,000,000. This
is an increase of $300,000 over lb
valuation fixed by the Company
but $380,000 below tho valuation
fixed by the Assessor
The Board was unanimous in its
decision as to the valuation of tho
property of the Wailuku Sugar
It is understood that an appeal
will be taken in each of tho cases
to the Supremo Court.
PolitlclmiH Hnvc Something
The local politician and a good
many of those interested in the doing
of our Board of Supervisors are loud
in their expressions as regards flip
new position of County Suporinten
dent of Roads recently created by
the Board, and for which applica
tions are advertised for.
It appears, from their sayings
that as the Board created the office
it should known the value of tho same
and fix the salary before hand so as
to obtain thf sen ice of the rial
man. "Just, think," say the wise ones
"anyone wpli a pull and a lot. of
friends in tho different districts
whore he can lodge ni.d board di rin
his visits, can underbid and obtai
the job, even if ho knows nothing of
road building. What is wanted is
man who knows the work and thei
pay him accordingly."
This all seems logical enough bu
it is belii ved that tho Board at it
next meeting will consider tho appli
cations, not. only from tho standpoin
of cheapness, but also that of qualit
There are, so rumor lias it, at least
two applcants now. George Copp of
Makawao has a large number of
friends who would like to see him go
the job. and so has Johnny Wilson, til
contractor, quite a pull on tho Kon
side of the island and Molokai, and
more than that he has experience In
The position is not as easy a one to
fill as many seem to think. If, as is
said, the 'now superintendent will
have to hand in reports of work dur
ing the month, and also furnish esti
mates for nev work, ho will have his
hands full, for correct estimates wil
be exacted from him, so that the
right amounts may be sot aside.
The politicians, that is the peanut
politicians believe tint such an officer
could swing quite' a number of votes
at the next primaries and elections.
'Well it may be alright," they say,
"but if the now superintendent; lias
any tendency towards politics, Maui
will have a Sam Johnson, a stronger

touch with all the road laborers on
Maui and in Molokai, and will natur

Nor is the now office nil they have
to talk about lately. The fact that
Supervisor Kaiuc is seen on his gray
stoed making daily rounds to the
rock crusher at Kahului and other
places whore road work is going on
lias roused tho ire of several.
Sam wants to be in a position to
state from personal observation at
each meeting of tho Board howmucl
work and what kind of work is done
in his district; and thet only goes to
show that he. wants to earn his salary

"Maui county expended ?.16,-1G1
on roads last mouth."
Allowing for the misprint of
month for year, where did this
money go to? It is a well known
fact that, tho Roads around-Lahai
na (that is those used by tho pub
lie) and Wailuku aro in a worse
condition today than they have
over been. Who is to blame? The
Supervisors, the County Engineer
or the different Road Supervisors?

favorite expression of tho Count
Engineer) that there is lots of room
In the initiation of any new sys
tern, especially of government of :
people and by a people entirely
unfamiliar with tho form of govern
ment under which we now live
mistakes are nccessarity made.
In the building of roads without
proper machinery and implements
the work has not progressed as
fast as many would havo wished
nor have tho results been what
they would have been had the pro
per equipment been used.
As far as tho Wailuku District is
concerned "taxpayer" has evident
ly been misinformed when ho says
tho roads here aro worse than thoy
navo over been. 1 no reverse is
nearer true. Ed.
