On the following day (Thursday
morning) the board mot at nine
o'clock Kev. It. B. Dodge asked the
board to consider a proposition to
btild a side walk nlong tlio pro
perty inakai of Church street on
Vineyard street in lieu of land do
nated to widen tho street. The
board adjourned at twelve o'clock
noon to view the promises. They
found the street to bo very narrow
in many places and in one place to
be but fourteen feet wide.
lo build a side walk on a street
so narrow as this would bo the
grossest folly. What should be
done is to acquiro sufficient width
to make this sirect due of the prin
cipal streets of tlio town and then
improve it along modern lines
Until this is done nothing hIiouKI
ho done as it would bo a waste of
funds to attempt to make a dosirable
stroet while it is so narrow. Vine
yard atreot affords tho most attrac
tive location for residences in Wai
luku and it would seem that the
property owners would see that it
would bo greatly to their advan
tage to havo the stroot widened and
straightened as it would greatlv
enhance tho value of their property
'to havo this clone.
The board took up tne report of
the Sheriff and gave it careful con
sideration. The Sheriff reported
that the last grand jury had re
eonitnandcd that ho be compelled
to dismiss from his force Solomon
Kawaihoa for being drunk while on
duty last spring. He stated that
for this offence the officer had been
suspended by him at the time and
that since then ho had conducted
himself properly and that he did
not feel it just to dismiss an officer
for a wrong that he had previously
been punished for especially since
he had been reinstated and since
which time ho had conducted him
1 he hoard felt that they could
do nothing in the matter at this
time as they had no official know
ledge of the recommendation of the
grand jury and had not been favor
ed with a cop' of their report.
The Sheriff reported that a Jap
had hung himself near the old
skating rink but that as it was a
clear case of suicide no coroners
inquest was deemed necessary.
A .Tap woman who was shot by
a Japanese man at Camp f was re
covering hut that the culprit was
still at large.
Domingo Peres was held lo ap
pear before the grand jury on a
charge of as-'sault with a weapon
and two Chinese were held on the
same charge which might turn out
to bo much more serious.
The Sheriff recommended the
payment of some hills for hack hire
for some of the police and the pay
ment of a bill for services of a
Porto Kican spy who assisted in
the detection of illicit liquor selling
by two Japs at Puuncne. The
Porto Kican testified before the
District Court that he had not been
promised, any compensation nor
did he expect any compensation
and yet he presented the bill just
It is the fixed policy of the board
to refuse to pay for the services of
any spy where he is a party to the
crime committed. As a matter of
principle this policy can not he
questioned and yet it has been
pointed out that if this principle is
strictly adhered to illicit liquor
dealing will greatly incrcaso and
it will be almost" impossible to
secure a conviction.
