WAILUKU, MAUI, H. T.. SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 0, i 909
Maui is Ten Years Behind in
Editor of the Maui News:
Within the next twelve months,
our Representatives and onu Senator
will have to he selected anil elected
for the Legislature of 15)11. They
should he chosen and instructed .to
carry out the wishes of. their con
stituents, looking to the advance
ment and betterment of the Terri
tory, as a whole, and especially so
of the County of Maui.
In order to intelligently carry out
such a policy, the citizens of .Maui
County should first known clearly
what their own wishes and wants
Prior to the last election, a water
pipe line for the Kula section was
unanimously agreed upon, all can
didates for election, irrespective of
political faith, were heartily in favor
of the construction of that project.
The result is that the finances for
this project were "arranged for and
within the next year, in all proba
bility, the "Kula pipe line" will
have been installed and in operation;
a very apt illustration of what united
action can and will accomplish.
Should wc not commence to dis
cuss our needs and agree on what is
,jnost,neoded by the County of Maui
what wc wish out Legislature to do
for our advancement and betterment
in the next Legislature?
It seems to me, Mr. Editor, that
the one greatest improvement for
Maui will be the con.truction of a
belt road around this Island. The
Island of Maui is ten years behind
any of the other larger Islands in
the Territory iipthis respect. Eleven
years ago, Hawaii was circumvented
by a good carriage road; Oahu,
years before that, and Kauai had a
good road from Ilanalei to Waimea
some years prior to the completion
of Oahu's bolt road, hut Maui, even
today, has a good belt road hardly
half way around. Is it not about
time that Maui's citizens get toget
her and find ways and means for
constructing to completion the belt
road around this Island?
This belt road can be, and will
he built, if we would only come to
gether and unite on its construction,
as was donu in the Kula pipe line
The policy of the present Board
of Supervisors is to expend all the
County's funds, over and above a
reasonably economical cost of ad
ministration, in the construction
and improvement of this belt road.
For tins year alone, about $10;000
will have been spent on sections of
the belt road in the various Dis
tricts of the County. Even if suc
ceeding Boards of Supervisors carried
out the policy of the present Hoard
which is not at all likely it would
require, probably, from ten to fifteen
years to complete the belt road at
this rate of expenditure.
Would it not be wiser for us to
ask the Legislature and Governor to
issue Territorial Ronds for this pur
pose, we to set apart each year, the
projwtionatc amount as a sinking
fund for the payment of these Ronds
when they mature, the same as is
done in the case of the bonds for
the "Kula pipe liny?"
As "the completion of this road
would open up several thousand
acres of the best farming land that
the Territory owns, it would seem
only just that some iwtion of this
expense should be borne by the
Territory, say, the whole or at least,
