unable to pay for medical treatment
instead of securing the same for the
reason that they did not have the
money to pay for the same as they
were ignorant of the fact that such
treatment could lie had free for the
asking. He recommended that
schools and the police bo requested
to report any and all such cases to
the proper authorities that assistance
might lie given to them.

cisco and should be here soon.

Attorney J. M. Vivas appeared

time ago at any time that would bo
convenient for the board.
Mr. Caso gave an oral opinion to
the effect that tho board could not
employ legal services of attorneys
to do the work of tho county attor
ney in order to get out of making
an appointment of an officer to fill
the office wnich was created by law.
Chairman Ilcnning asked County
Attorney D. II. Case to stay in
ollico for at least another month.
Mr. Caso stated that he could not
very well do so and refused to con
sider the proposition for the reason
that he had been offered retainers
in mses in which he might have to
oppose the county and for him to
represent Uitb sides of a case was
He said there were three reasons
which be might give why h" bad
taken the step he had, and others
which he did not care to mention.
He had made all necessary
arrangements to resume tho practice
of the law and he did not feel satis

(2), Mr. Crockett, a personal
friend of his and in whose welfare
he was interested had at tho request
of friends this day put in an applica
tion for the position of County At
torney, undoubtedly being of the
opinion that he would not reconsid
er the position taken and that be
did not feel that it would bo fair to
Mr. Crockett to at this time .to re
verse bis decision.
That it was the general belief
among many good people that Mr.
II. P. Baldwin held the republican
party in the palm of his hand Be
said that word had repeatedly come
to him to the effect that if bo did
not pontinue in the office of County
Attorney, 'Mr. Baldwin wanting
him there, he might just as well
pack his worldly belongings and
leave Maui. That he would un
questionably continue to be County
Attorney as Mr. Baldwin had ivot
yet met his figure and remarks of a
Mr. Case stated that he did not
wish to continue to lie County At
torney and thus have many who
were not familiar with the facts be
lieve there was truth in these
charges and that be was induced to'
remain by ulterior motives.
Another lson given was that he
did not hesitate to say thatMr.Bald
win had lamentably fallen short of
his duty in giving",moral support to
good men and good measures
In view of these considerations he
must respcgtfully decline to recon
sider tho matter of resigning.
He thanked the Board for the
many courtesies shown him.

hului and Olowalu was postponed

expense of erecting a pound on Jiis
He suggested that the clerk write
to tho authorities in Honolulu and
ascertain whether a piece of land
could not be bad.
Mr. Pogue said that he .held that
a pound was for tho local communi
ty and that if tho community did
not care to erect and maintain a
pound let them go without it.
County Attorney Case was called
upon and stated that cither course
was legal and that it was strictly a
matter of policy for the board.
Supervisor Haia said that it was
too much to expect an individual to
erect a pound at bis own expense
and then ' be removed with the
pound on his hands and no remedy.
W. P. Pogue ' reported on the
matter of two indigents in his dis
trict and recommended that one be
provided for by the County at an

party by the payment of this sum.

consider his determination to resign.

alliances that made it impossible
for him to break. He said that a
friend of his, W. F. Crockett, had
ipplied for the position and he could
not throw him down. He spoke of
the courteous treatment received
from the hoard. He gave a number
of reasons other than these.
