Sunervisors on the matter of a I wit roail for Maui. Thin in in line with
the jHiliey thin paper has outlineil in the past and will continue to advo

The two most, worthy uhjects that can lie accomplished hy our Maui
delegation in the next session of the legislature are the passing of the
necessary measures for the Maui licit road and a sanitarium for the afflict
ed and more especially those otHicted with tnlierenlnsis.
On these two measures all parties should unite and strive as one liody
to accomplish. Every island of any size except Maui lian a licit road.
We should make it our 1 amines to nee that this in accomplished an noon
In the matter of a place for the treatment of those afllieted with tnU'r
culosin that in a matter that is now coneeeded ly all medical men of any
standing to lie one of the paramount needs of every community and
especially so in the islands.
Our townsman, D. L. Meyer made a strong plea for such an institution
in an address In-fore the Improvement Association some five yearn ago.
At that time the matter had not lieen duly considered here ami wan
not given much consideration. The puhlie now realize that leprosy in o!
little moment an compared to thin dread disease.
Let us unite on the matter of a licit road and sanitarium.
Washington, November 10. For
the first time in the history of the
American judiciary, the United
States Supreme Court has ruled on
an appeal from a decision of a lower
court sentencing a man for contempt
This ruling wan made yesterday
when the decision of a Tennossee
court sentencing the cx-shenff of
Chattanooga ami bin assistant jailor
to niety days in jail was upheld.
The offlccrs were cited for contempt
after permitting a mob to storm the
jail and seize a negro against whom
popular indignation wasaroused and
who was lynched. Four of those
who assisted at the lynching were
also cited for contempt and includ-
1 in the derision of the highest
court of the land.
The decision is more far-reaching
than it at first apjxars. Ry virtue
of the precedent, the proceedings
against those who lynch, or attempt
to lynch, prisoners who are under
the protection of the law will 1
stricter and it may have the effect
of alolishiiig 'Judge Lynch."
Honolulu, Novendier 17. We ex
pect to be able to recruit two thou
sand Russians in Manchuria at the
very least calculation, ami lam sure
we can get several thousamj more,
if they are wanted," said A. W.
Perelstrous yesterday just as the Si
beria was about to leave for the Ori
ent. Mr. Perelstrous and A. L. C.
Atkinson, representatives of the ter
ritorial lxiard of immigration, left
on the steamer for the Orient hound
for Harbin, where they will recruit
more Russians. They were accom
panied by James Lloyd, formerly
stenographer in the house of repre
sentatives, who will act as look
keeper and look after all clerical de
tails. It is possible also that Lloyd
may remain in Manchuria for at
least six months or possibly a year.
Although there has been an inci
pient strike already among the
Russian lalmrers already here, the
plantation managers express them
selves as 1 icing very well satisfied
with them. The little trouble was
at Waiakea, where, on the first pay
day, the Russians threw down their
hoes and declared that the pay they
had handed out to them was not
what they liecn led to lielicve they
The management, not having
anyone who could talk much Rus
sian had a hard time persuading the
men and women to get back to work
and submit their trouble to arbitra
tion. At the present time they arc
all back on the job.
At Waiakea, as on the other plan
tations, the men are fast learning
what is expected of them and are
doing first-clans work.
