Talk About New Sheriff.
Some time back thero was a per
sistent rumor that W. G. Scott was
looking for Sheriff Crowcll'a job. Wo
spoke plainly our views in tho mat
ter, and though some people coh
strued our remarks as a knock
against Mr. Scott, that gentleman
took a broader view of tho matter,
and thanked the editor of this papor
personally for speaking frankly. He
also stateu positively that he was
not out for tho position of sheriff,
and did not want it.
At a recent performance at the
Wailuku Orphcum, in which a lady
proposed to answer uny questions
which wero asked her, sho made the
statement that W. G. Scott would
bo the next sheriff. This has started
tho tongue-wugging again, but hap
pily Mrs. Cunning does not have
tho naming of the county officers
for Maui, and though thero is al
ways tho possibility of her being
right in her guess, still thero always
remains tho great gulf between pos
sibility and probability.
