Getting Rid of the
" Dead Beats on Maui.
Editor Maui News:-
The question that has been
bothering the business men of all
Maui for years past is that of ridd
inn themselves of dead beats, in
-other words, of doing away with
giving credit to people, who not
only are slow pay but refuse to
pay their just debts.
This query has been answered
by. asking another question, -viz:
"Why do you give them credit at
all?" which in turn somo of our
business men answer by stating
Mint if they don't give them credit
some ono else will, thus taking
chances in getting what is coming
. to him.
One of our principal business
men suggested Mint a "blnck list"

Many Forfeitures of Bail

The 'District Court has been kept

sent in that a riot was on there.
Shim told the court how he was
quietly walking along when he was
called a dirty Korean by some Japs.
Ho said he called the Japs moral
lepers and they assaulted him. Ho
said he was knocked down and
beaten. He exhibited some slight
scratches and bruises as" evidence
of what ho had told.
There were other witnesses who
in part corroborated the story told
by the Korean.
The Japs denied that the one

Rid the Town'
. of Vagrant Dogs.
Editor Maui News:
Many times in the. past have
been heard remarks from visitors
and local people with reference to
the number of sickly looking, bony
canines that hover around 'our

At any hour of the day, prin
cipally on busy days, can be seen
hordes of these beasts on Market
street, especially around the corner
of Vineyard, where are located our
meat markets and fish stalls.
They are not only unsightly and
dirty but sue also dangerous to
passers by. Several reports have
been received of persons being at
tacked by infuriated dogs on the
Our dog catchers should get busy
and rid the town of the brutes. It
has been noticed by many that
when the dog-catcher conies around
he passes by the vagrant dogs and
captures clean pots, whoso owners
will quickly pay the delinquent
tax and penalty.
There's a reason. For every dog
the catcher captures and its owner
pays the penalty, the dog man re
ceives a commission There being
"nothing in it" for Mr. Dog-Man in
capturing vagrants, why should he
take chances and receive a bite?
The authorities should see that
the ollicers capture the luenn-look-
lng curs and destroy them. They
will then be doing a great deal to
ward making Wailuku the clean
and healthy town it should be.
