The Man For The Board.
TK K can understand how a manlike Mr. Mott-Smith should
W W make warm friends in editorial rooms and elsewhere, but in
choosing somebody to safeguard Honolulu from epidemics
affability is about the last thing to be thought of. If Honolulu has a
Ben Butler type of administrator who is about as genial as a grizzly
bear with a sore foot, he would be an ideal man to carry out the really
drastic work of the Board. Such a man would discipline his corps of
inspectors, so that it would act with the precision of a machine; and
woe to the householder or corporation who let a private nuisance pre
vail. Being good natured and yielding is all right in the superintend
ing of a sanatorium for sick girls, but when it comes to wielding the
semi-police authority of a president of the Board of Health in a tropi
cal port, the man who comes nearest to the decisive type of Ben Butler
is the one to tie to.
But manners have their place. In the somewhat critical attitude this
paper has taken towards Mr. Mott-Smith, it has never said a word
against him as secretary of the Territory. He is an ornament to that
post; he even looks more distinguised and happy in a frock coat and a
silk hat, than the Governor himself. At his official desk he is a sym
phony in pulchritude. No man can better receive a delegation of
office-seekers or visiting statesmen than this same Mott-Smith. In a
speech at a banquet board he is quite felicitous, but he is not a man to
grab a club and chase a recalcitrant property owner out of his own
pigpen into a trial court, and let him or his kind know that the health
laws of the Territory are made to be obeyed. Hawaiian Star.
The above is pure common sense, and the quicker the people of this
territory wake up to the fact that they cannot have ornamental office
holders, the sooner will the islands come into their own,,.
When the bids for the new roads and bridges were opened by the
" Loan Fund Commission last Saturday, there was also a letter from
Marston Campbell requesting that the contract for the bridge work be
held up until he could examine the bids. Since then he has made
other requests which reflect no credit on a man filling the important
position of Superintendent of public works. This is right in
ljne with Campbell's policy ever, since he has been in office.
There is nothing to show that the bidding for this work
was not done fairly and above boad, and the only' construction
which can be put on Campbell's request is that he wants
to play favorites. This .has been his policy in other matters,
and he is so used to it now he probably can't help it. It has been
practically impossible to get anything from Campbell unless vou had a
pull, or unless you did business in Honolulu, the rest of the territory
benig left to take care of itself. Thanks to the wisdou.of the governor,
the majority of the Maui Commissson are men who will stand for no
thing that savors of ward politics. They are spending the people's
money, and-they are going to spend it in the most economical manner
possible. The lowest bidder will get the contracts on Maui, providing
he is responsible. There will be none of that wire pulling such as is
always so conspicuous over in Honolulu. We have no particular in
terest in Patterson getting this work, but we are interested in seeing
everyone getting a square deal, and in the taxpayers getting the most
for their monev.
Maui is in the lead as usual. This county is the first 'to get started
on the new roads provided for in the loan fund. We are likely to get
the most for our money too.
Henry Perrine Baldwin.
(Anna M. Paris.)
NOT to the call of the bugle,
Not to the cannon's loud roar
Come they, the throng on the hillside
Come they from upland and shore
Races united in sorrow,
" One in their grief and their moan,
For the loved "Father of Maui"
Into the silence had gone!
There on the hiliside they laid him
He with the brave heart and true,
Rests Maui's temple above him,
O'er him the deep vaulted blue
There, where the splendors of sunset
Linger the longest, the best
Under the stars in the silence
Deep as his faith, shall he rest.
Now evermore shall the laurel
Rest on thy brow, Maui, fair
Isle of his birth, he has given
To thee his hope and his prayer.
Bright be that laurel wreath, fadeless,
While from the land of his love
God's great cathedral enfolds him.
Lo! He is knighted above!
