Need of a The question of whether or not n county huilil-
County Building, ing is needed and should Ik- I milt instead of a
temporary makeshift ly adding a third story to the jail I wilding that
was never intended for hut two is hcing thoroughly discussed hy the
residents of Central Maui and almost without an exception puhlic opinion
is in favor of the acquisition of additional lands and the erection of a
huilding that will meet the wants of the county for all time to come in
stead of ruining the etTect of the present puhlic grounds hy the erection
of a t'.iird Si ry to the jail huilding hy which otlices may lie created that
will lie serviccahle for hut a few years.
When County (iovcrnmeiit was first cstahlished on Maui a few years
ago very much smaller quarters than are now in use were ample. There
was then no need of an assistant to the county clerk. The county clerk
did all the work that is now done hy two good men aad in less time. The
auditor did not need an assistant hut did all of the work in less time
than is jxissihlc for two first class men to do at the present time. The
same was true of the treasurer. While at first there was no county en
gineer after the creation of that ollice which should have lieen created at
the start the county engineer did all of the work that is now done hy a
number of able assistants. After a time the Inmrd of supervisors thought
they could save the county a considerable sum by taking over the upper
story of the jail building and fitting up the same for county otlices anil
by so doing could have all of the ollices in one building and have room
for the lioard too. This was done for a time and the plan worked well with
the exception of the hoard rooms which were always too small.
A succeeding legislature, yielding to jHipular demands, enlarged coun
ty government and gave to several of the county otlicers new and more
extended duties which necessitated the employment of additional help.
This made necessary the enlarging of the otlice of the treasurer, the coun
ty engineer, the clerk and the employment of additional help.
The supervisors had to get new quarters for themselves and the county
clerk and the county engineer, while all of the ollices are cramped at the
present time and there is not a single ollice that is large enough for pre
sent needs and even if the additional story is put on the jail building it
is certain that it will be but a few years until the county will lie com
pelled to provide outside quarters for its officers. ,
Any one who keeps informed in matters of puhlic. thought knows that
the people of all political parties are demanding more extensive local self
government and that it is sure to come, for if any politician attempts to
thwart the will of the great majority he is sure to lie relegated to the
political scrap heap.
It w ill not le at any great distant day when the schools w ill lie entirely
under Wal control, health matters will lie administered by local orlicials-j
taxation will lie attended to by otlicials chosen here and most of the
duties of the superintendent of public works will lie in the hands of
local officers and all along the line there will be less of territorial pater
nalism and more of local self government and when these changes come
the additional story will be less adequate than the present quarters are
for present needs.
It is better to look ahead and prepare for future requirements than to
build at great expense what is certain to be totally inadequate in the near
We would suggest that there be called a mass meeting of as many of
the citizens as possible for the discussion ami decision in this matter and
we feel certain that the hoard will Ik influenced by the w ill of the people

Kuhio showed a lack of tact in discussing the question and while gaining

Frear is supjHirted by the industrial leaders and while such support
is of great value it isn't every thing in a political campaign. It is idle
to criticise Kuhio for what he didn't do at the conference with Frear lie
fore he had gone out among the rank and file of the electorate and lea rued
their thoughts on public matters. ,
It is not ton lute for the Governor anil the Delegate to get together.
