New The action of the Board of Supervisors in plac
Supervision, ing the roiul work of ouch district strictly in
the hands of the Koud Overseers was one of the wisest actions of
the board at this session. ly this means the board will look to the
overseer for results and hold those ollicials strictly accountable
for the work in this districts.
In the past the greatest adverse criticism of the manner in
which the road work was managed was along the lines of divided
responsibility. The work includes road building on two islands
where the presence of the officer in charge was required to make
regular visits. This island alone is too large and the manner of
reaching the different localities is too difficult to permit an officer
to make his required rounds and properly overseer the work in
the various districts. The public have never made due allowance
for this but have ever been ready to criticise the one in charge of
the work in the county and have held him responsible for all de
lays and errors and omissions no matter where nor under what
circumstances the same occurred. All of this should be overcome
by the Road Overseers and in case any one.of them does not make
good he should be replaced by a competent person.
The matter of forming a system should not bo a difficult matter
for the Board and it would then be an easy matter for them t
notify the overseers what work is to be done each month and the
same carried forward by these officers of rhe Board.
A Needed In May 190U a contract was let by the Board of
Improvement. Supervisors of the County for the construction
of the first concrete sidewalks of Wailuku and in a short time much
of the work was done. This work was a satisfactory improvement
and was one of the greatest benefits to the town of Wailuku that
has been completed by the authorities.
In the course of a few months such sidewalks were constructed
on one side of the principal streets of the town and made wide
enough for all practical purposes and of sullicient strength to
endure for a great many years. There was a short piece of side
walk' on High street near the Enos store that remains a disgrace
to the town and we feel that it is time that steps be taken to have
This street is one of the streets most used by the taxpayers hs
it is a street on which many of our best citizens reside and is the
street that all must take to reach the court house where the courts
are held and were the concrete tvo story court building is now in
process of construction.
On this street the County building is situated and all who have
business to attend to there must use the street mi which the relic
of former days in the form of pn'oiud wootlfn sidewalks, remain.
The cost of the new sidewalk 'o t. iKe ihe jilaee i f tin- nld side

Judges and On a recent -ceasion, Jiulir" Ke.o Uai, in d-feii'.'-
PolitiCS ing Lis pos'timi, said, "It. is the lili! of eeei
citizen to criticise any public Hieial. His acts ace public ptopertj
and I propose io criticise any official w henever I please." or wocl
to that effect. , No one will d. ny t ho justice, of this principle imi
can the Judge consistently taue issue with those of the community
who are now criticising him adversely whore such criticism is not
actuated by personal prejudice.
The News has at no time criticised the present incumbent of the
Circuit Bench nor do we take issue with i nose who are now criti
cising the Judge for his ollicial acts for we believe, with the Judge
that that is the right of every citizeu
We believe that personalities and politics si.ould be entirely
eliminated from the controversy and that the Judge and all other
officials appointed by the President of the United Stau-s should
come up to the standard in patriotism, integrity, citizenship, and
competence. We believe in the retention of officials in ollicu as
long as they live up to this standard and so conduct themselves as
to command respect by respecting the rights and feelings of
others. Those who do not come up to this standard should be re
legated to the past.
Under the heading Judges and Politics the Pacific Commercial
Advertiser of Houolulu has the following editorial in its issue of
We should suppose that the chances of Judge Kepoikai
for reappointment would he governed by his ability and
skill as a lawyer and jurist and by the general propriety
of his conduct on and olf the bench, i
The attempt at the Bar Association meeting to mix the
matter up with politics did not please the majority of the
lawyers present and can not bo acceptable to people who
take the high ground that there should he nothing iu com- '
mon between the bench and parties or the factions of
Litigants, especially, have the right to ask of the Bar
Association that its influence upon judicial appointments
be used to make tho bench stronger, abler, more learned
and honest; not to degrade it to suit the purposes of a
machine at the hands of which these litigants might not
hope for justice.
There is but one standard of appointment for judges
and it is one that has no concern with political expediency
nor with what chronic candidates for ollico may regard as
