The Board of Supervisors of the County of Maui is to lie commended
for devoting almost all of the available receipts of the County for road
making and for other public improvements . Visitors from other Isl
ruble comments on the condition of our roads, although
we who are at home, have gotten into the habit inherited from the
times when roads on Maui were negiected of kicking about the condition
of our roads so much, that when a piece of road has lieen put into shape
we promptly look nround for another

Evolution In Petticoats.
He acknowledged she was clever, and be took a certain pride
In saying that a woman can do anything she tried;
But when she left the kitchen and commenced to study Greek,
He said: "Oh, let her try it, she will drop it in a week."
And when she "beat him to it" on the coveted degree
And began to add such letters to ber name as "L. L. B,"
He spouted indignation when he'd rallied from the shock,
And to the present writing has done little else but knock.
'Twas fun, of course, to watch her, and he rather liked her nerve
When she went in for athletics and learned how to throw a curve;
But now he's growing fearful she will leave him in the lurch
"A woman's place is obviously," says he, "at home or church."
When she went Into his office it amused him for a spell,
Till she learned to add the columns up and typewrite rather well
Now she's grown so self-reliant that His Majesty repines
For the frail and fragile class of maids once kuown as "clinging vines."'
Once she shyly asked a question now and then on politics,
(A thing in which no "lady" would of course desire to mix);
But when her probings brought to light how certain things are done,
Myl Didn't consternation reign in good old Washington?
And now when wonies, want to vote men say thing's absurd, '
But what a woman wills to do she does just take my word.
The day of days for women is at hand without a doubt,
And the suffragists will git ye if ye don't watch out.

Friday evening last week D. Ka
lauokalani, Wm. White and John
Kalino addressed a prohibition rally
in front of Seong's Baloon at Laha
ina. The talkfest lasted over three
hours, and the crowd, estimated 1
tween 300 and 400 people, listined
as if charmed by the' eloquence of
Although the meeting was held in
front of a saloon! the prohibitionists
were greatly encouraged by the fact
that tht crowd remained to listen to
them and no one went into the
saloon for a drink during all the
time the meeting was in progress.
Many of the older Hawaiians came
and kissed the hands of Kalauoka
lani and White, and promised to
vote as they wished them to. Friends
of Masuda, the Japanese saloon
keeper, who was refused a license
recently, believing that he was done
p by others for selfish reasons,
have joined forces with the prohibi
tionists and intend to vote for pro
hibition to spite the others.
The return of Mr. White to Ia
haina in the role of a reformer,
where once he trod the booze route,
made a wonderful impression on his
old time companions. Many con
gratulated the home rule leader for
his efforts and his new born pur
poses, in seeking to lead the
Hawaiians away from the tempta
tions of the bar.
The Anti-prohibitionists are sendiug

speakers. The campaign for votes is

Coke Family Going Away.
Mr. and Mrs. Hugh M. Coke
and family will leave for Califor
nia in the Lurline. Their stay
there may be indefinite. Mr. Coke'
was for years a public school tea
cher here serving on Kauai, Ha
waii and Maui. For five years he
was editor and manager of the
Maui News, bringing it up to a
financial success as well as making
it a power in the country. Lately
he retired from the newspaper busi
ness and af once found a good
practice in the profession of law.
The published report that he
gave up the News ou account pi
differing with the controlling in
terest, on prohibition was not true.
Mr. Coke declined to take any part
in the prohibition controversy on
Maui, and the organization of him
self and others as an anti-prohibition
league was a practical joke
perpetrated by Lorrin Andrews. It
got into print without authority.
Mr. Coke is a temperance man,
although doubting practicability of
prohibition. He is a man the Ter
ritory can badly afford to lose and
all who know him will hope for his
return to Hawaii. : Star

BASEBOARD AND METAL COVER
Did Officials Eat Too Much?
Do the County official eat more
than other people and therefore have
to pay more for their meals? This
question is puzzling County Attor
Will the County pay 'the 30.00
which it lopped off from the bill
charged for meals furnished County
Attorney Beers, Clerk Karl Williams
and Sheriff Pua during the session
of the Circuit Court at Knilua, or
will it be necessary to sue the Coun
ty for the money? This question is
worrying Ah Lap, the Kiiilu.i boni
face. Ah Lap is much displeased that
the Supervisors at their last meeting,
without giving any reason, decided
to pay him thirty dollars less than
he asked for. He will, it is under
stood, write to the Board .giving it
the alternative of digging up forth
with or being sued for the amount.
This letter should Iks received in
time to come'liefore the board at its
meeting next Wednesday.
County Attorney Beers is much
pained at the incident. He says
that he understands that Ah Lap
charged the officials 50 cents per
meal, whereas ordinary mortals
were charged only twenty-five cents
for the same kind of meals. Both
he and his clerk deny strenuously
that they ate more than the ordinary
run of Ah Lap's patrons. However,
this will be a matter for the County
Fathers to investigate. In the mean
time it will be funny if the official
appetites bring the County into a
law suit. Hilo Tribune.
