ALL Hawaii ;s glad that there is no tie-up of the Inter-Island
steamers. If it had come to pass there would have lccn a trem
endous amount of money lost, and the citizens of these islands
would have suffered much inconvenience. It would seem as if the pub
lic did not hack up the captains this time, like they did last year, when
a paltry sum if 8110 caused the strike of the navigators. The first strike
was practically supported hy the general puhlic who helieved that the
mariners were only asking for something that they were entitled to. The
present difficulty is altogether different and, when hoiled down to the
bone, simply is a. fight to see whether an employer has the right lo hire
and lire his own help. There can be no. two ways of deciding a matter
of that kind, and the result was freely predicted as far as the Inter
Island victory is concerned.
It is tough on the mariners who have been with the company for so
many years, and who have helped to build up the big corporation to
what it now is. Still, thatdjes not alter the fact that the company has
every right in the world to dismiss such men as do not suit them.
The diflieulty as to the new imported men not being able to take over
the steamers at once, is being overcome by the simple expedient of send
ing the new men out as mates bo that they can learn the Hawaiian
waters. What the future holds for the old mates who are now acting as
captains, there is no means of telling.
WE wonder what sort of a howl will go up in the country dis
tricts when they hear of the proposal to abolish elected super
visors, and to form the board from the heads of the county
departments. That the residents of outlying districts will most emphat
ically kick, there is no doubt. The people wish to be represented by the
men they send to office, and they feci safer when they know that their
representative is on ,dcck at the meetings, and taking care of their inter
ests. The idea of putting county official heads in as supervisors would
appear to be a policy of you scratch my back" etc. Each district
wants its own representative, and a man whom thev see and tell their
wants to when ever they feel inclined. How would the liana or Molo
kai citizens like to have all their wants attended to by the men who are
elected to do another kind of work, that should keep them busy all their
time, without trying for anything else to do.
Some people think that stories about horrible affairs such as that which
is at present stirring the mud in Wailuku, should not be printed in the
newspapers, lhat sort of view is very narrow minded, and the persons
who so think, should remember that it is only by publishing their names
that certain men can be made to feel the lash of public opinion. As
long as the Maui News is edited by the present editor, there will be no
suppression of news of any sort, no matter how high up any man con
cerned in a serious affair, may be.
On Wednesday evening next
there will be a benefit performance
at the Kahului Lyceum, in aid of
the Kahului Tennis Club. All the
