"TO THE VICTORS."
IN following nut the doctrine that "to the victors, the spoils," the
Democrats of Oahu are going the whole hog. In a way, the idea
is sound, and the experience of the last four years with the offices
split between the Republicans and the Democrats, has been a miserable
experience on Oahu. The Democratic police department could not get
anything like what they should have from the Republican police com
missioners, and that created friction and-made it impossible for Sheriff
Jarrett to add to his force or to carry out many other improvements.
At the present time the Democrats have everything and, for the good
of the city of Honolulu it is better to let the Bourbons have complete
control for the next two years. In that time they will have made such
a mess of things that the Republicans will come back into their own.
There will be no banana crusade to imbilter the voters and they will
vote the way that they should have at the last election.
As far as Maui goes, we have the same old Republican lot in power,
and a good thing it is for this island.
BEET MEN SCARED.
TIIK American beet grower could supply the entire American de
mand for sugar, and would do so in a few years if there were not
a continuous dread that the Protection would be removed and
the home industry made impossible. There is an abundance of capital
waiting to enter the business, and it keeps out now only because of the
risk that the Democrats may prevent its profitable employment.
The Michigan beet industry is absolutely dependent on the mainten
ance of the sugar Tariff. The Democrats in the last Congress passed a
bill to remove the sugar Tariff altogether, and it would have been law
today if they had controlled all three branches of the law-making pro-Cess.
David Morton Appointed Deputy
Sheriff At Makawao Motorcycle
Officer Provided For.
There will not be many changes
ns regards county employees, and
the new board of supervisors will be
content with the men who have
held down the positions for the last
couple of years.
The sheriff's department will have
at least one change and one new
appointment. Deputy sheriff Peter
Noah is pan at Makawao, and bis
place will le tilled by David Morton.
All the other deputy sheriffs have
been n 'appointed, as they ha ve done
their work satisfactorily in the past.
The new olliee to be created is that
of motorcycle ollicer, and the man
appointed will have-three districts
Wail n ';u, Lahaina ami Makawao to
look after It will be the duty of
this ollicer to keep an eye on speed
ers, and other offenders against the
ordinances There are several ap
plicans for the position, and all the
men are said to be experienced
operators of automobiles and motor
cycles. The necessity for a motorcycle
ollicer is acknowledged, ami the
fast increasing number of automo
biles -.hi Maui, will keep the ollicer
busy night and day.

TIIK initiation of the parcel post system will bring the Honolulu
stores much closer to Maui. Under the schedule published it
will be seen that goods can be mailed from the Honolulu houses
to Maui at very little expense. That the innovation will interfere with
the trade of the local stores, goes without saying, but there will still be
room for the excellent stores we have on this island. Prices may have
to be trimmed a little but, as competition is the life of business, every
thing will even up in the long run.
The board of supervisors which retired last Monday at noon, and
which a', once proceeded to succeed itself, with but one change, has
done good work in the past and there is no doubt that, in the future, it
will do just as satisfactory work. The retiring chairman, W. F.
Pogue, held the solous well together for the past term. Mr. Kalama,
who succeeds Mr. Pogue will, no doubt, be as acceptable to the men
who elected him as was his predecessor.
The proposal to establish a hotel at Kahului is a good one-provided

House Gutted By Flames.
At eight forty-five o'clock on
Thursday evening last, the new
fire bell at the police station was
rung for the first time in real earn
est. An alarm of fire was turned
in from near Vineyard street,
where a cottage occupied by a
Japanese named Nakamura was
found to be on fire.
The fire laddies turned out
piomptly, and soon had their hose
and reel on the scene. The men
did their best, but there was no
chance of saving Poi's cottage.
All efforts were directed to saving
the adjoining house, and the fire
men partially succeeded.
The cottage in which the fire
originated was gutted. It was a
total loss. No insurance was car
ried. The cause of the lire is said to
have been the overturning of a
charcoal stove. The house was
owned by a Japanese named Poi.
It did not take long for a big
crowd to gather at the scene of the
fire. The police did good work' in
keeping the crowd back.
