Meet The Issue. Tim conditions called to tlio attention of the
Wailuku Improveincnt Association are something to ho regretted.
If through the misdeeds of a few the fair reputation of Maui's
first town is to be smirched and the peoples of Maui inadi' to blush
over evil conditions which seem to have arisen it is time to moot
It is time for the better people to get together and strike, and,
so remove from the midst of this little community the evil which
is being detailed in other places by our candid friends, who have
.no idea or intention of hurting the town, but are only rehitinjx
what they saw and heard while Vie re.
Public senti-nent strongly favors stamping out the evil, real or
fancied, and unless the offending parties mend their ways of living
so.in something is going to drop, and drop pretty hard. Housed
public opinion on any particular object has got to he heeded, and
offenders should take a tumble to themselves or the community
will put on hob-nailed shoes and jump on them with both' feet.
The Territorial The Territorial Legislature will he in business Ik
Legislature. fore our next issue, and ere it launches itself hit
the troubled waters before it we will say :i few pleasant things fur wc
hojie and wish our fellow political workers will do things for the people
and incidentally get n few appropriations for public works on Maui.
We will admonish our Senators and Representatives to sink their little
differences when it comes to a show down and to vote together as a unit,
and also to do things. Let deeds discount mere words. In that way
only can they make a showing and have inlluenee and he a force to be
reckoned with in the tortuous channels and shallows of the muddy waters
of Territorial polities. Pew will probably read and none will care for
the advice we are giving, but still it is given .in the hope if anyone among
them happens to need advice the remarks herewith turil loose will be
well worth heeding.
AVe hope to be able to throw bomiuets and to point with pride at the
works of our legislators, hilt nevertheless we keep an odd collection of
stale cabbages and old bricks to shy at the contrary fellows if there he

That Injunction It seems that the Territorial autho-
Aainst Taking Water, rities are not as anxious as the peo
ple of Wailuku are about settling water works troubles. The in
junction is a regular strangle hold on the further growth of the
town and parlies who were optimistic ubout. it and put up cottages
on the strength of a childlike faith that the authorities will soon
settle the trouble are resorting to the country district, practice of
packing water for household use from the water taps of their more
fortunate neighbors, all of. which is dead wrong.
On the street the question is often ashed; Why does not the
Attorney General move in the mutter?
Thoughtless people have answered the question to their own
satisfaction. Their solution is that the Attorney General is afraid
to try the issue with the high priced legal talent in the employ of
the Wailuku Sugar Company, that he is waiting for an opportunity
when the high priced fellows go away to the mainland and Mien
spring the matter on the plaintiff corporation.
Well, why don't the Attorney General make a move? Perhaps
he wants the situation used us an argument for turning over the
water works to the control of the counties?
Public Wharf It is hoped the Legislature of the Territory will
For Kahului. provide the funds. for constructing a public
wharf for the port of Kahului, which is preferable, but in case the
Legislature fails to provide an appropriation therefor, the Kahu
lui Railroad Company, Limited, is prepared to step into the breach
and build the wharf so urgently needed for the further growth and
development of Maui trade and commerce.
Governor Frear makes the following statement to the Secretary
of the Interior in his report with reference to the shipping calling
at the three principal ports of the Territory. "The io.al tonnage,
including inter-island vessels, entering Honolulu was l.XI!),0l';
Hilo. 105,91)4; Kahului, 191,981)." It puts in a strong light the in
creasing commerce of the port of Kahului. ,
We hive no hesitation in saying that the policy of the Feueral
government, as laid down in President Roosevelt's message to
Congress last Decembers to provide a good harbor for each of the
principal Islands of the Territory, will be carried out; and fu'ther
improvements in the shape of an extension or addition to the
breakwater and dredging to widen the harbor of Kahului will come
in due time after the Federal surveys are made and harbor lines
Whatever amounts are expended for port improvements will be
money well spent, for the commerce of the port of Kahului is sim
to keep right on increasing and growing us it has been in the past,
The Federal government however does not provide for public
wharves so it falls to the lot of the Territory to provide wharves,
and the request of our business leaders for improvements and ad
ditional facilities for the protection of shipping and to expedite the
handling of cargoes i something to which the commercial in
terests of Maui are rightly and justly entitled to and should re
ceive respectful attention and a liberal appropriation from the

That the Government acquire the
