There is no fun in attending drills whenever the officer may issue
a call and one must go in spite of previous engagements or in
clination. It means much hard work with no pay and often when
it would be much more convent and satisfactory to stay away.
The men had a -nost successful encapnient and practice drill last
Saturday and Sunday at Kahului after whicli they inarched to Wai
luku. The Hospital Corps were drilled in their line of duty and
participated in the drills of the days.

as Tax Assessor.
The resignation of W. T. Robin
son as Tax Assessor for the Second
Division here came as a great sur
prise to many Maui people as Mr.
liobinson has always been looked
upon as one of the most efficient
and popular officers on the island.
The sole reason for the resignation
of Mr. Robinson was the fact that
he could not get a leave of absence
of four months to take a trip to the
mainland with his wife that had
Iteen planned a number of years
ago and as he is of independent
means he decided to give up the
office rather than the trip.
It will be a hard matter to get a
better man for the place than Mr.
Robinson. A mmibcr of good men
however arc licing talked of for the
place and some of whom have ap
plied. The Executive Committee of the
Republican Party met Wednesday
and recommended In tree Dunn as
their first choice provided he would
move to WaHukuand J. N. K. Ke

An elaborate map, showing the
new harbor lines for Kahului, has
been completed by the Survey de-
partment and approved by Acting
Governor Mott-Smith and will be
forwarded to Secretary of War Taft
through Captain Otwell, the en
gineer officer in charge in these
islands. The map not only shows
the harbor lines which have been
decided on by Superintendent o
Public Works Campbell and Cap
tain Otwell, but also the location
of the present wharves and the pro
posed location of wharves which
are to be constructed by the Terri
tory in the future, as the com
merce of the port may demand.
These plans show provision for
four wharves along the town side
of the harbor and a long pier ex
tending out the full length of the
breakwater. With the proposed
wharves in position and the dredg
ing of the harbor completed accord
ing to the plans, Kahului will be
able to hold her own commercially
wiih any town in the islands.

At the request of the Board tht
County Attorney and the county
Engineer had prepared rides for tht
proper procedure for the opening
and construction of roads. Action
on the matter was deferred.
The report of the County Attorney
was the first to be taken up.
The most important matters
interest during the month with
which the office had to do was the
decision of the Supreme Court of
the Territory holding that the
Counties were forbidden to issue
bonds by the terms of section fifty
five of the Organic. Act as the Coun
ties do not levy taxes and hence
have no taxable projterty by which
thev could be permitted to issue

a road at Omaopio. An appeal was
taken in the matter to the Supreme
The report of the Deputy County
(Vttorney showed that he had repre
sented the Territory in thirty-four
cases ami had secured convictions
in nearly all of them.
The Sheriffs report was short
dealing in the matter of the work of
his department but quite lengthy
and strenuous in the nature s of
kick. The kicks were against the
action of the Board in refusing
pay hack hire for certain work
the police and their retusal to pay
lulls for interpreting where no
arrests were made and in the refusal
of the Board to allow full pay for
police officer John Brown who was
badly hurt while returning from
work one evening and as a result of
which he will be a cripple for life
Action was deferred by the Board
The Sheriff called attention bthe
fact that a number of Chinese had
represented that Luke Chan, a police
office, was standing in with certain
professional gam! tiers but that as
was well known that he was the one
who was breaking up the gambling
liuis he had retained him in 'the
force. Luke Chan was 'recently as
saulted and badly beaten while en
deavoring to make arrests of a mini
her of gamblers. The gamblers who
assaulted him are now in jail
He reported that the heaviest fine
for larceny imposed for the month
was One hundred dollars on T. W

The Engineer reported on the
Vineyard-Church Street fence to the
effect that the- fence did not en
croach on the street. He stated
that he had been offered a four foot
