Treasurer Campbell", Choice
The County Executive Coinniittee
of the Republican party held a meet

The matter of the greatest interest
to the members of the party was the
consideration of the request of Treas
urer A. J. Campbell that they en
dorsb Joseph S. Kuncwa for the
position of Tax Assessor of Maui.
Before the committee had met it
was evident that no matter how
much they might have wished to
endorse the choice of the treasurer
it was certain they would not do so
on account of the strong opposition
that lias developed.
Maui citizens are a unit in their
behalf that there are good, honest,
capable men who could fill theoiliee
to the entire satisfaction of all but
chronics and that the oflice should
go to a Maui man after due con
sideration the committee decided to
endorse all of the candidates who
have applied. A resolution was in

Interesting Story told of J,
L. Coke and I. Garcia.
The San Francisco Examiner of
May 30th, has the following in
teresting story of the trip of two
well known Wailuku citizens that
while- denied by each of the princi
pals is given for what it is worth.
"Boots, shoes, portions of steamer
chairs and chunks of sea biscuits
found their way by night to the
door and into tho stateroom of
Messrs. J. L. Coke and J. (iarcia,
on their voyage over from Hono
lulu on the liner Manchuria, which
arrived yesterday. The two men
are national dolegates from the is
land of Maui, Democratic and Re
publican respectively, and by the
fortunes of polfties they were as
signed to one and the same state
room. "Politics does make strange bed
follows," they remarked philoso
phically, and turned in to rest.
Rut they didn't. Neither did
those around them. Coke began
to wonder how Garcia could vote
for any one except the peerless
leader, and Garcia thought deeply
for a time and then decided that
it was but a strange mischance that
led Coke any way but Taft-ward.
And then they started the six
day argument. It wasn't so bad
at first, the sleepless' passengers
stated yesterday, because it began
low and evenly, and merged into
the lapping of the waves.
But the sound of the argument
grew. It penetrated the next state
room, and then stole farther down
the corridor and crept into other
rooms, and still others, booming
out into the steerage finally and
arousing tho heathen ire of the
horde of celestials there.
And it could not be stopped, or
even stemmed. It flowed as na
turally as tho babbling streams,
and as resistlcssly as the raging
torrents. Every morning the in
defatigable delegates crawled out
from the mountain of missiloa and
started tho endless argument after
a hasty breakfast, and every night
their voices kept time to the pound
ing of the steamer's engines or,
as some declare the engines kept
timo to the voices.
And ttie surprising part of it is
that Coke is still a firm Democrat,
and Garcia an adamantine Repub
lican." To this amount must be added
the sugars sent from Hawaii by
plantations outside of the Sugar
factors. It is estimated that of
this about hfty thousand tons must
have reached the market by this
time, and, valuing this at the same
rate as tho others, would make the
gross value on the whole total
$4,175,000, or a total value of all
the Hawaiian sugars from Hawaii
marketed, of nearly $21,000,000.

of tho last convention was the first
thing under the ordci of business.
The minutes were found correct
and approved as read.
A number of communication
were then taken up.
A communication from the Ho
nolulu Iron Works was rend relat
ing to the bill of lading for the
traction engine shipped. Action
on this communication as well as
otherconimunications was deferred.
A communication from the Wnt
erhouse Company stating that they
had sent an adding machine to the
county clerk for the freo use of the
county officials for.a period of one
month was read.
County Attorney 1). H. Case
wrote the board that he had receiv
ed the instructions from tho board
to have a deed executed by W. T.
Robinson for the property on which
part of the sidewalk i.f Market
street is laid but was unable to get

deed before Mr. Robinson left the
The County Attorney wrote that
the Manager of the Kaeleku Sugar
Company had stated to him that
he had not been given written
authority to make leases of lands
belonging to the company although
such authority had been voted by
the company and that he had been
informed verbal ly of their action.
For this reason the lease of a small
piece of land sought by the county
for road purposes would havo to
come from the officers of the com
pany of Honolulu.
The County Attorney w ote that
it was tin the power of the county
board to purchaso a Colts automa
tic gun if they felt the same should
be bought. He also wrote them

certain gentlemen of Honolulu
who were duly authorized to sign

hands of the Attorney General but
that the Manager of the Company
had stated to him that the com
pany did not consider the matter
of sufficient importance to go to
law and had abandoned the use of
the land sought by the County for
road purposes and was willing to
allow the county to ufo tho land
for road purposes provided the titje
to the land should remain in tho
company and revert to the com
pany when the public no longer re
quired the use of the land for road
The Vireles3 Telegraph Com
pany wrote the Board that tho
neceseary amount had not as yet
been guaranteed to justify them
to open their station in Mo'okai
but that they believed it soon
would bo and that when this was
done they would open the station
there and sign the contract sent
them by tho Board.

To tho Honorable Board of Super
visors within and for the County
of Maui, Wailuku, Maui.
C. G. White Missed His Boat
Caught Her in Stream.
C. G. White, the pineapple man
of Maui, son of the nianufactuicr
of tho White steamer, who arrived
in this city this morning on tho
China, had a great experience when
caving San Francisco this trip.
And it was all due to an automo
bile. Mr. White was at the steamer,
and his wife, with their little child,
was on the Oakland side, coming
over in an auto. But the auto got
a tire punctured, a ferry boat was
missed, and tho arrival of Mrs.
White at the wharf delayed. Mean
while Mr. White was pacing up
and down the pier, with a watch
111 his hand, as the hour for sailing
drew nearer and nearer. At the
last minute, he was forced to con
clude that his wife was not coming,
had his baggage thrown out, and
resigned himself to wait for the
next steamer to Honolulu.
The lines wore cast off , tho China
moved out into the stream. Just as
the gangplank came down, Mrs.
White arrived on the wharf, in a
frantic hurry too late.
Tho Maui man proved the exis
tence of his bump of resource. He
got his family and baggage on a
tug, and gave chase to the big liner
so successfully that ho was among
the arrivals in Wailuku by the
Mauna Kea Tuesday.
Gentlemen; I herewith tender
my resignation as County Attorney,
the same to take effect on tho first
day of July, 190S.
I shall consider it my duty, and
it will certainly be my pleasure to
assist in the trial and find disposi
tion, of any cases, in the result of
which the County of Maui may be
directly interested, now pending
and undetermined, in either the
Circuit or Supreme Courts.
Any service I can at any time
render to the County, and which
will not conflict with the duties I owe
to others, will he gladly extended
I desire to thank each member of
your Honorable body for the cour
tesies and kindnesses from time to
time shown to ine during .' mv in
cumbency in ollice.
D. II. CASK.
Tho members of the board were
surprised the.t Mr. Case should wish
to resign and as'ed him to re-eon
sider his determination. Mr. Case
thanked the members of tho Board
for their kindly words but said that
ho had felt for some lime that he
should take a vacation on account
of his health and that ho had held
the ollice- to his financial detriment
and that in justice to himself and
family he felt that he should take
tho step he did. Supervisor Haia
moved to deter action which was
seconded by Kaiuo and carried.
Supervisor W. F. Poguo submitt
ed a written report on the matter of
a road at Omaopio. In his report
he stated that the residents there
and those living above Omaopio
needed a road in order to get their
produce to maket and advised the
construction of a road 011 lines to
bo established by the County Engi
neer and approved by the board.
