THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1913.
-Hnna Supervisor Attacks Sanitary
Inspector and Then Backs
Supervisor Drummond att acked
Chief Sanitary Inspector Osmor on
Thursday at the meeting of the
lioard of supervisors. Driinwiond
declared that Osmer was only hound
ing down poor Japanese', Chinese,
llawaiians and Portuguese, as re
gards sanitary" matters, and was not
doini: anything as to the sanitary
conditions of the plantations and
the homes of rich men of the com
This startling statement was made
while Osnior was not present. The
rest of the supervisors looked wor
ried, and said that such a charge
should le proved true or false at
once. Just at that moment Osmcr
appeared on the scene and, when
ho had finished speaking and ex
plaining, Druininond had "got his"
good and hard. ,
Osmer declared that the planta
tions were doing hotter sanitary work
than all, the restof thecommunity to
gether. He also stated that the
plantation authorities were going
right ahead with sanitation work,
and that they were spendfng a
largo amount of money on the pro
position, lie said hat the plnnta
tion managers were fully in accord
with the schemes of the board of
health, and cited instances where
every manager on East and West
Maui had cooperated with the health
Osmor went on to tell of the ex
pensive sanitary work that has been
..(lone right in Wailuku by "rich"
men. lie declared that all he had
to do was to point out what was
needed and that the rest was easy
As to any charge that the "poor"
man was getting it in the neck,
Osmor simply outlined what he is
trying to do for Maui sanitation.
"I always give the poor people
plenty of time to do what 1 order
It is all for the good of the com
munity and, when a man refuses to
comply with the territorial law, he
' has to be brought to his senses, just
the same as any other law-breaker."
Druininond seemed to regret the
rash' statements he had made, by
the time Osmer had enlightened
him as to what the plantations were
doing in the line of sanitary work

Drummond got Ilenning hot by
saying that Tie did not believe in
"Why, man," declared Hen
ning, you are the ono who has
btfQi$kioking all the time about the
high salaries. What on earth do
Drummoiid said aftorwards that
ho did oppose reductions and that
what he wanted was leas men in
certain offices. "Thero arc too many
men in officos, and raises have been
given that should never have been
granted," he concluded.
At the meeting on Wednesday,
Druininond took a wallop at the
chairman of the finance committee.
'You should not pay the bills," he
eclarcd. "I must pay them when
they are legally contracted," re
plied I leaning.
'Well," snorted Drummond,
'some bills wore notlegally contrac
ted. What about Sam's automobile?"
That was a bombshell that brought
forth no reply at the time.
The meetings of Wednesday and
Thursday were hot ones and there
was fight in the air. Supervisor
Hcmiing got so hot with Druininond
on Wednesday, that ho left the
oom and went home for a rest.

With the middle of September
the fire season on the national
forests has conie practically to an
end with less damage than ever
recorded. There is always some
danger from carelessness of campers
or of settlers burning brush and
clearing land, but the real- danger
season extends only from the mid
dle of June until the middle of
Forest officers throughout the
west are congratulating themselves
on a season so markedly free from
heavy losses. They feel that the
immunity from loss has been due
to two principal causes, partyly to
a favorable season, but largely to a
much better organization for fire
prevention than has been attained
heretofore. The effectiveness of
the organization is shown parti
cularly by the fact that while there
Were in alh. approximately 2,260
fires, as against 2,470 last year,
yet the area burned so far this year
is only about ; 60,000 acres as
against 230,000 acres in 1912, and
780,000 in 1911.
A single administrative district,
which covers the lntennouutam
region of southern Idaho, western
Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and
western Arizona, gives an example
of the most favorable situation.
Only 43 fires were encountered,
29 of which originated in Idaho.
The total area burned over amount
ed to only 956 acres, whicft is con
siderably less than four one-hun-dred-thousandths
of the total aiea
patrolled by forest officers in these
California, Arizona, and New
Mexico have suffered most during
the past season.
The various causes of fires have
not changed greatly in their relative
proportions. Railroads and light
ning head the list, with campers
next. There has been, however, a
marked decrease iu the number of
fires caused by burning brush,
which, according to the forest
officers, indicates a closer coopera
tion with the settlers in and near
the forests and with timberknd
owners iu fire prevention and !!
trol. It is still true, nevertheless,
that a large proportion of all fires
started are dtic to human agencies
and may generally be charged
against carelessness. Fires caused
by lightning are of course not pre
ventable, but the system 3f look
outs by which they may be detect
ed immediately after being set is
greatly lessening the loss from this
