THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, MAY 3, 1913.
To the Editor of the Mali News:
Not wishing to take up too much
space of your column in reply to
the letters signed hy "Old Timer,"
"Molokini"' and "Pound Master,"
allow me as a public spirited one,
and further, as one who deems to
have the welfare of the community
at heart, to make some suggestions.
The criticism hy "Old Timer"
with reference to the inactivity of
the police on Molokai in bringing to
light an alleged or supposed viola
tion of the law, can easily be reme
died by proceedings which "Old
Timer" is aware of.
Mr. "Old Timer" fails to recol
lect his "once political pledge'' re
garding the "next to le deputy
sheriff of Molokai," or "coptain of
police of the Island of Molokai," in
case of the election of the present
incumbent (Mr. Crowell, Sheriff of
the County of Maui.)
"Old Timer" is one, (that we
may, in our Bmall sphere know to
be an angel of good or evil) who
may, (we, as inquirers may make
suggestion to allow "Old Timer")
come forth and demonstrate the at
tributes of his actions, which he,
himself, profess to practice. (A
fool is always a fool; he never
changes his mind, but his actions
carry him beyond comprehension.)
If "Old Timer" is old enough in
politics to carry out his policy and
was older than "Old Timer" was
when he was laboring under a fixed
"political move" some six years
ago, "let him show us who the turn
coats are?" (Not the Duvauchelles
not Tolafson.) This may cover
"Molokini's" letter in substance.
In support of "Pound Master,"
I would suggest that ' Mr. "Old
Timer," if his conscience permits
him, may seek remedy, to sooth
him, in the act entitled "Civil Ser
vice," specially passed for the bene
fit of applicants for positions in the
police and fire departments. Nowl
Mr. "Old Timer 1" Is your chance.

ULTIMATE DEGREE OF THRIFT.
The fellow who gets his morning
paper from the city rubbish box on
Broadway must step aside for the
real champion of thrift the chap
who leaves home ten minutes early

up two or three papers and yet

them when he goes to lunch.
WHEN 18 WOMAN MIDDLB-AGEDT
Peaceful English suffragists want
the term middle-aged abolished as
obsolete, contending that even the
witness in the Gainsborough picture
case who said woman reached that
stage of existence between 40 and
50 is wrong. They admit that
woman rightfully might have been
called middle-aged at 30 in the
early Victorian days, whn they did
nothing more intellectual than em
broidery, but now, when they are
kept alert by fighting for the vote
and by taking part in most every
form of industry, the British woman

SHEATHING HATPIN DAGGER.
Girls from Broadway now may
expect to be compelled to buy hat
pin guards on the trains that run

has said the sharp-pointed things
must be guarded. But the pro

isn't first in this legislation. Swedish
cities banned long hatpins and
ordered the points of all of them
worn on trains protected. Conduc
tors there spot a passenger with an
uncovered pin and make her buy
a rubber tip for a cent or go to a
police station and have a peck of

ICB TO SAVE APPLE TRBB.
An orchard owner in Maryland
who says the light winters make bis
apple trees want to blossom earlier
than he wishes them to do so, has
packed cracked ice around their
roots to retard blossoming. Or
chards often havo been heated to
prevent frosts, but the stunt of the
chap below the Mason and Dixon
line is said to be the first of its kind
ever tried here.
"I'll be glad," said the man on
the back platform of a Brooklyn
surface car who was puffing on a
cigar, "when the open cars are
running again, so I can have a seat
when I smoke. No one seems to
care for the comfort of smokers.
Some time ago they had smoking
cars on the Brooklyn Elevated, but
they were abolished, and now a
man can't even smoke on the station
platforms. The railroad companies
should run special cars for smokers.'1
"That was tried once on the Third
avenue line in Manhattan," said
the old conductor. "Certain cars
were set aside for smokers, with big
signs painted their entire length
reading 'Smoking Car.' But the
smokers never had a chance. The
woman crowded into them despite
the signs, and the smokers had to
hang on straps, so the experiment
