Maui the Model County.
FOR some time past when comparisons are being made re
gard g conditions on the different islands, Maui is invariably
taken as a model for the others to pattern after. Maui possesses
no natural advantages over any other island in the group, still we are
looked upon as the model island. There must be a reason for this, and
some man or a set of men deserve the credit. Maui has public spirited
citizens who have always been willing to lend their best efforts for the
betterment of the county Maui has been fortunate in electing men to
the county offices, who represent the highest standards of integrity and
ability, and to all of these belong a share of the credit for making Maui
what she is today. (
When the Loan Fund Commissions were appointed for the different
islands, the governor named men to serve on each commission whom
he thought would be fitted to serve the best interests of the com
munities. Again Maui got far and away the best of the deal. Take a
look at the czarlike attitude of the different members of the Oahu l-oan
Fund Commission. Almost immediately they managed to get into a
controversy chiefly because of their high and mighty attitude. They
have been getting the worst of it, and will continue to get the worst of
it so as long as they assume their present attitude. In the meantime,
the taxpayers are paying the fiddler. They have spent $7,000, and
nothing to show. for it but an old grey horse. The Maui Loan Fund
Commission has at its head Mr. W. F. Pogue, who has probably
done more to put Maui in the forefront of the counties than any
other single individual. Mr. Pogue ,with the cooperation of
the other members of the commission, has so far expended the
monies of the commission in a most judicious manner, yet this week he
goes before the Maui Chamber of Commerce, and asks that a committee
from that body be appointed to confer with the commission, to deter
mine the best possible expenditure of all funds, tfere is the great
secret of Maui's prosperity. No Star Chamber sessions here, but a
free and open discussion of what is best for Maui. This suggestion of
Mr. Pogue's is so far in advance of anything which possibly could occur
on Oahu or Hawaii, with the present commissioners in office, that the
mere thought of such a thing will probably send cold shivers running
up and down their backs. As we said before, we are not any better
than the people of the other islands, but simply more fortunate in hav
ing men such as Mr. Pogue in office, who see their duty, and know
how to perform it.
The peoajle of Honolulu and by this we mean, the business people,
are always so fond of knocking the other islands to the tourists. Hard
ly a tourist comes to Maui, but marvels at our climate, our scenery,
and our progress. "Why," they say, "what is the matter,, over in
Honolulu, they told us, it was roasting hot here, and there was nothing
to see.and things here are not at all like we expected. You have a beauti
ful island." No doubt this kind of thing keeps many away, but others
come, and all who do come are loud in their praises of Maui. It is pure,
unadulterated hoggishness which prompts the Honolulu business inter
rests to thus misrepresent the othea islands. One tourist even laid the
charge at the door of the promotion committee. Honolulu is rapidly
gaining anunenviable reputation fo its ability to gouge the traveller
within its gates and give very little in return, and they are in a fair
way to reap the whirlwind.
Now that Wailuku is to be a really and truly city, with real electric
lights, the Board of Supervisors would incur the good-will of every
citizen, and add lasting glory to their fame as statesmen, if they would
complete the sidewalk along Main Street. The section from the Lyons
property to the Enos store looks bad, very bad, and soon the citizens
will be asking why the work has not been completed. The supervisors
will have to answer this question, and how much easier it would be to
have the sidewalk put in immediately.
An international track-master at Cape Race, with plenty of help,
could have the Newfoundland banks patrolled with signal vessels and
fix buoy lights on southbound iceburgs during the danger season. This,
with an efficient speed regulation might soon bring an end to the re
cord of avoidable disaster in the graveyeard of the Atlantic .Sto-.
The suggestions coming from the Star, generally hit the mark, but
to anyone who has frequented the waters off the Newfoundland coast,
the above is ridiculous.
(By Dr. W. . Blackwell.)
HOLD fast! That splendid motto has many battles won
When linked with noble puipose to earn the world's "well done,"
But one of equal import for all shrewd men to know
Is when to quit amiave the grit to then and there "let go."
Have you lost your coign of vantage, have you slipped into a rut,
It's no disgrace to change your base before the wires are cut.
It bespeaks the wily general to outwit a stubborn foe.
Don't stand your ground when you have found 'twill pay you to let go.
