The Efficiency of ClvKj Effort.
TIIK unification of civic effort which has? now become so import
ai a question in our Territorial affairs, is not a new departure
in public administration Since the amalgamation of civic inter
ests in one representative Chamber of Commerce in Cleveland twenty
five years ago, many cities of the mainland have adopted a similar plan
of marshalling civic forces into one strong body, and with equally gra
tifying results. Communal interests are no longer circumscribed by
commercial .mitalions, but in these latter days, include problems with
which our forefathers were entirely unacquainted. The education of
the masses has brought abtrut radical changes in community life, neces
sitating the consideration of questions entirely foreign to the concep
tions of those of less than a decade ago. ,
It is now no longer disputed that the asthetic side of life is as im
portant as the purely commercial interests, and questions, for instance,
if sanitation, recreaiion, and health now demand the best and serious
thought of our public administrators. Our representative corporate
interests have long since accepted the correctness of this reasoning, and
they realize that the better housing of their employees has not only a
direct bearing on efficiency, but is also a dividend producer of no mean
order. With the advanced views, therefore, of such necessities of com
munity life, has been fostered a spirit of civic co-ordination, in which
it is possible now for the better manhood to participate, irrespective of
. the.sordidness of mere commercial qualifications. The breaking away
from the hitherto prescribed limitations of civic betterment in the pres
ent day consolidation of civic effort has wrought wonders in our main
land cities. With an isolation in the Pacific Ocean, and our import
ance as a strategic point, we have no room for a divergence of civic
action. The cause of one island should be the cause of "all, and to
every question affecting our internal interests a solid phalanx of opinion
should be presented. This cannot be accomplished by a mere working
arrangement; it must result from a unification of civic effort along well
defined and substantial lines.
Our correspondent in another column suggests that the citizens form
an association for protection against careless auto drivers. There is no
doubt that unless some move of this &ort is made, our streets will be a
very unsafe place. There is no class of men who can do more to dis
credit all than the careless drivers. One careless, speed .maniac, will
make the ordinary observer look sidewise at every machine which
travels the streets. An automobile association, such as we suggested
last week could, and doubtkss would be a prominent factor in curbing
the breakneck proclivities of, the speed maniacs. We would be the
first to demand that an example be made of the careless driver who got
into trouble, but we strongly object that the careful drivers be obliged
to bear the odium put upon them, by the carelessness of hack drivers
Mr. W. G. Scott wishes us to repeat what we said some time ago,
that he is absolutely out of politics, and does not want the nomination
for sheriff, or any other position whatever. Mr. Scott says any state
ments to the contrary are absolutely unauthorized.
The democratic spellbinders are with us. Watch for the manufact
ured ideas, which will be passed out as facts.

YOU'LL never miss the water
Until the well runs dry;
You'll never miss the roses
Until they scattered lie;
You'll never miss the songbird
Until it long has flown;
You'll never miss your chances
Until you old have grown.
You'll never miss your mother
Until she, too, has gone;
You'll never miss the green hills
Until of beauty shorn;
You'll never miss a true wife
. Until alone you're left;
You'll never miss your children
Until you are bereft.
You'll never missyour friends, boys,
Until your money's lost;
You'll never miss the wasted time
Until you count the cost;
-You'll never miss God's sunshine
Until the Winter's blast;
You'll never miss life's pleasures
Until your life is past.

Editor Maui News,
Dear sir: '
On coming to town this morning
about 8:15. and while on my way
to the postofliee, I noticed one of
our Lahaina Japanese auto drivers,
Haynpune by name, I believe, drive
his auto past another Japanese mito,
at a most tremendous speed, on
.Main Street jurt opposite Court
House building and yard. At the
time this was happening, an official
was entering the yard. at the east
entrance, and two other gentlemen
were standing near the north en
trance. These gentlemen, I am
sure if asked would testify to the
truth of what I am writing, as they
all three tuVned to look at the speed
The Deputy Sheriff was in his
lot nearly opposite the Court House
yard, and I have no doubt had also
seen the very reckless way that that
Japanese was driving, but there was
There is an alley or pathway be
tween Mr. Pintado's yard anil the
Deputy Sheriff's lot. Had any one
come out of that alley in a hurry at
that very moment he would have
Ix-en cut to pieces by this Japanese's
reckless driving. This man is not
only heedless and reckless but con
ceited as well, and no doubt thinks
he owns the road. Such reckless
driving has been allowed here all
along by tho authorities. There are
other fiends in Lahaina, of the same
I have seen this man on several
occasions drive at such tremendous
speed, and I believe he has taken it
as a pastime, because the police
never interfered. A hackman driv
ing at one-fourth the speed that
this man was driving would surely
and quickly be arrested for heedless
and fast driving.
In your "Public Safety" editorial
of June 1st, you suggested that the
Maui auto drivers organize and
form a protective association. Why
not suggest that the general public
of Maui organize and form a pro
tective association, with branches
at tho several districts, to regulate
the running of autos thro' our
towns, or for other purposes benefi
cial to the people? Our County
athers don't seem to' caie to make
ordinances in the matter, and it
there are any made at all, the
police don't seem to mind, in Laha
ina at least. I shall be glad to he a
member of such a protective -association
as above stated, and work
for the bent interests of Maui.
