I i UN J AMI N WILLIAMS,
t. f. Secretary.
& Liquor Co.
Receives Favorable Coniment
from an ExTeacIier.
Mil. EDITOR: My attention was
attracted the other day lv the head
ing "The New (ieograpliy and .Some
Queer Things in it," in the P. C.
Advertiser of October !. On exam
ination the "queer things" were
found to be rather in the article it
self than in the geography.
On applying the methods of the
"Higher Criticism" to the article
in question, one might suppose it to
have been written by two different
The lirst halfjif it (Document A)
is a very just and discriminating
account of the main features of the
new geography of the Hawaiian Is
lands prepared by Mr. V. V. Bald
win. It is there proiHUtnced to be
by far "tluHest handbook of Ha
waii that has ever been gotten out."
The maps, which were all prepared
specially for this work are said to be
"the most up-to-date maps of the
Islands in existence." The illustra
tions too leave nothing to be desired.
The author of the first part of the
article fully recognizes the solid
merits of the book, its .eminently
practical character, showing the
hand of an experienced teacher, and
its, wealth of information, well
arranged and "given in compact
form." He does full justice to Mr.
Baldwin's thorough equipment for
this work along the lines of the
geology and topography of the is
lands, subjects which "lie at the
foundation of a work like this," as
well as on the historical side.
o mueli lor Uocument A as
Higher Critic .might label it. But
when we read the second part of the
article! (Document B) we encounter
a captious, hypercritical spirit, quite
different from that of Document A.
His first point, however, in regard
to the daily capacity of the irrigat
ing ditches, where three ciphers
have been omitted by the coniposit
or, is well taken. If the word mil
lions" had. been written out in let
ters instead of figures, this error
would not have escaped the proof
In regard to the district magis
trates, they were styled "district
justices" under the monarchy, and,
(not to go farther back) , were ap
pointed by the President of the He-
public and then by the Oovcrnor of
the Territory, as stated in the He
vised Laws, published in l!)0f). In
that year, the Legislature saw lit to
intrust their appointment to the
The criticism is made that the
sugar crop of 15)07, "is understated
by. more than HO.OOO tons." The
figures given in the geography are,
however, those of tlie exact amount
exported in that year to the United
States, and exceed those of the crop
of l'JOl by more than 10,000 tons.
The subject of the; artesian wells
of Oahu 1ms been sufliciently dis
in regard to provincialisms so
called, it should be remembered that
the geography was written primarily
for use in Hawaiian schools and. for
The word "Pali" will probably
soon find its way into The Standard
Dictionary, in which are already
found the geological terms "aa"
and "pahochoc," and the Spanish
words "canon" and "barranca,"
besides the Polynesian words "ta-
'tattoo" and "taboo."
The Makawno Foreign Church
is so styled in its charter.
The word Chinese" may be pre
ferable to "Chinaman," but the
latter is jinalogous in form to
Englishman, Frenchman, etc, and
need not bo offensive to any one.
The "opinion that there was an
outbreak on the slopes of llnleakala
a hundred and fifty years ago,"
may be "controverted" by some
one, but it was vouched by Mr. E.
Bailey, who arrived on Maui in
J !;(, and published his 'Historical
Pogue Recommends Aid for
It was Supervisor Pogue who
brought 'his matter up at the last
meeting of the Board and his in
terest in the proposition to get
water for the farming district of
Kula is moit commendable.
Assessor J. II. Kunewa wrote the
board, calling their nttentjnrfi to the
fact that in the employ of the
county were many men who had
not paid their taxes.
A motion was mjide to instruct
the Clerk to furnish each Supervis
or with a list of the delinquents in
his respective district.
The County Attorney sent in n
shott report. It was in striking
contrast to his former report in a
nine1! as it was free from legal
opinions that characterized tin
former report. He reported ,lbe re
signation of II. C. Mofsninn. No

Deputy County Atomcy D. II
Kahaulelio sent in his report. It
dealt with the work for the month
and criticised severely the action
of the District Magistrate of Hana
for imposing a fine of but live dol

as we have been able to learn no

against the police force and the
Sheriff is to be congratulated on

done by the police force of Maui.

Notes" in the annual report of the
Hawaiian Historical Society for

great eruption of lava burst out on
the southwestern slope of Haleaka
la, in Honupaula, probably over
one hundred and fifty years ago, in
which an old woman and a small

As any one who has seen it will

We find no fault with the con
cluding sentence of the review,
which may be assigned to Docu
ment A, viz: that "its a handbook
of the islands, it is far and away
the best that has been written,"
though the last expression may
seem to a jurist to savor of the
"colloquialism," which the writer

be replaced on the ballot by that of
David II. Kahaulelio, In another
letter sent at the same lime Kahau

with 820, asking that his name be
placed on the ballot;
This could not be done, as the
law provides that the secretary shall
refuse to receive nominations, after
thirty days before election. It is
provided, however, that in ease of
the death or wilhdrawl of a candi
date, a substitute may be provided
by filing nomination papers, toget
her with the S2i fee with the in
spectors of clieti.'ii. In such a cast
.the name will not ppar on tin
ollieial ballot but ueh voters ns wish
to vote for the candidate may write
his name in the blank space provid
ed for such a coutingoncy. Knhati
lelio's nomination papers are head
ed with the names of A. X. llaysel

This leaves Maui well up in tin
air, as regards a chance of sending
a Republican to the House from the
