"MARCH (i. 1!I0D
An Important One of tho most important measures now before
Measure. the Legislature is tho bill introduced by Repre
sentative E. H. Carloy for the relief of the drouth stricken district
of Kula. Kula is the district of independent homes. A district
where many residents own their own lands and till the same and
in former years succeeded in making a comfortable living for them
selves and their families. Here is the nucleus of a large number
of independent homes occupied by families whose interests in the
community are tixe1. and permanent. Hero were conditions that
are held up by the press as ideal. The politicians have advocated
the assistance iy the government of various com tn unities in the
hope of bringing about such conditions and even the ministers look
to this class for better citizenship.
In the course of time it is found that, there is not sullicient, water
for the people In that community. The Republican party of the
whole county goes on record as favoring tho building of a pipe line
for the relief of the community. The Supervisors of the County
appropriated sufficient funds for tho purpose of having the line
surveyed and the matter was then presented to the Legislature. If
there is any apathyshown on the part of any member trom the
County of Maui after the needs of the residents of that stricken
district have been thoroughly explained such a member from either
branch need never attempt to run for office again in the Oounly.
The editor .of this paper was on official business in kula a year
ago this month. He knows that at that time the people refused to
sell a bucket of water there for fifty cents per gallon for the horses
that were used in making the trip to that stricken dist rict. As time
went on conditions became worse and hundreds of people w-
compelled to leave the district and their "homes and seek employ-
ment on the plantations.
If there is any sincerity in the cry for small farmers then let
every advocate of the principle be consistent and lend a hand to
help this measure through.
If it costs a hundred thousand dollars nppripriate that sum.
that isnt enough then appropriate more.
We need m'ore sincerity in vogue and loss hypocricy. Let
have that pipe line no matter what it may cost.

of the territory a wide open proposition.
Under its provisions any one could conduct a saloon any place
for a period of a year without danger of being molested. It
. simply a scheme to make the traffic a wide open one and should be
opposed by all decent citizens.
The present liquor law gives to the commissioners discressiouary
power and by this means any one who is not, thought to be a per
son of good character or one who will not conduct an orderly place
' of business is refused a license. It is possible that this discres
sionary power may be abused in which case the governor should
be appeled to and he under his oath of office should remove the of

We would strongly advise making no change in the liquor laws

Honolulu, March 2. It lias been

week will he one to do away with
the election of deputy sheriffs,
making them appointees of the
Sheriff of each county. It is con
tended that as long as the deputy
sheriffs are to bo subordinate to
and responsible to tho Sheriff they
should be nominated by him and
so appointed that he may remove
them for cause without having to
secure an impeachment before the
Board of Supervisors.
If this bill passes it will mean
the throwing out of the present bill
to create confusion in police affairs
by giving the deputy sheriffs the
right to appoint the police officers
serving under them, the men to be
approved of by the Sheriff, or, if
his approval is withheld, by the
Board of Supervisors. This bill
would extend petty politics still
further into the police forces of the
counties and under such conditions

Legislature seems to he to give the

Honolulu, February 27. Re
presentative E. A. C-Long pro
poses introducing a bill in the
House which will provide that all
bachelors over twenty-three years
of age must pay a special tax, a
tax on bachelors, of two dollars
per annum, the money thus realiz
ed to go to the support of the home
for the non-leprous children of
leprous parents and similar insti
tutions. Representative Long is himself
an unmarried man. He is not
even engaged, tho, he has hopes.
In fact, last year, which was Leap
Year, recorded to his credit no less
than six proposals of marriage
made from the lips of five as 'fair
women, one proposing twice, thus
making six proposal from five pro
posers. So Long is absolutely unpre
judiced in the matter of li is in
tended introduction of the bill
mentioned. When the matter
comett to vole in the House, it is
likely to pass, say Long and his
friends. The bachelors in the
House are away in the small
, minority Castro and Long being
nost of the unmarried Representa
tives. Long is serious in the contem
plation of his measure anil, if it
pass, it will certainly he a revenue.
"President Roosevelt, the mar
ried Legislators, all engaged men
and all married men will favor
the measure," says Long. ' The
tax is small, only two dollars a
year, and it will not drive anybody
to marriage for the mere sake of
avoiding a payment of two dollars
a year. Of course the law will go
into effect as soon as passed. You
can watch the marriage records
after the law goes into effect and
see if there is any sudden increase
"What is your idea in stipulat
ing married men over twenty
