Editou, Maui Nkws,
In tho issuo of your number.
March 21st, 191-1, the Honorable
V. F. Poguc, Ex-Gbairman of the
Board of Supervisors of tho County
of Maui, Loan Fund Commissioner,
etc., in an article on tho "Plebiscite
Matter" bids for the free discussion
of the matter in tho public press,
etc., and with your kind permission,
I desiro to, in part, make answer to
the said article.
A careful analysis of Mr. Poguo's
paper shows, first, that ho and the
general-public have not had ample
time to ditctrss tho matter fully;
second, he is in doubt as to wheth
er the pcgplo of tho County of Maui
should bo given the right at all to
issue" bonds for public improvements
as well as to whether such improve
ments arc necessary or not; third,
that the County of Maui is too poor
to expend five hundred or a thou
sand dollars to defray the expenses
of said plebiscite, when, perhaps,
the net result of same would bo not
what the people are asking for but
somo valuable information "which
is quite questionable as being worth
the cost." Fourth, that it isn't a
matter of dire necessity that these
improvements should bo made, but
that it is a matter of an issue which
warring factions arc endeavoring to
foist upon the public for no other
purpose than to satisfy their de
sire to win merely for tho sake o
winning" and with no regard for
the public good.
I desire to state, at tho outset,
that I appreciate tho frank state
mcnls that Mr. Poguo has made at
this lime and that ho has placed
himself squarely on record in the
beginning of the fight and, those of
us who are for this matter, cannot
help but feel that, though he is
ugainst us, there is still hope that
he can bo convinced by the pub
licity that he courts.
In answering the first count in
lis indictment, the entire reading
public will agree with mo that the
matter of the Kula Pipe Line and
storage reservoirs along said line
lias been before the public for tho
past three years. Ho must also ad
mit that the question has been de
bated on the streets, pro and con,
at a meeting of the Maui Chamber
of Commerce where he was defeated
by one vote on a matter of site for
said reservoir, etc., and of late at
meetings held by tho Board of
Supervisors and in general discus
sion throughout tho entire County.
Mr. Poguo was invited to attend
the rcient meeting of-tho Board of
Supervisors. Was asked by the
writer why ho did not do so, and
ho is aware of tho answer ho gave.
All of the said meetings wero at
tended by prominent business men
and individuals of all classes. Tho
meetings held by tho Board of
Supervisors wero attended by Sena
tors Baldwin and Penhallow, and
it is a well known fact that, Senator
Baldwin in particular, is on record
as favoring tho reservoir, and the
Plebiscito Law. Mr. Poguo is fur
ther aware that tho Board of Super
visors appointed a coinmitteo com
posed of tho following gentlemen:
Senator Baldwin, C. D. Lufkin,
Hugh Howell, Mr. Collins, A. E.
Bruno, Mr. Avers, and the writer.
Tho said Committee mado a careful
investigation of conditions and re
ported to tho Board of Supervisors,
unanimously, in favor of the said
improvements and the method by
which they should bo obtainod.
(Sec Report of said Committee.)
Mr. Poguo must admit that tho
Minority" to which he refers has
had all of the time and opportunity
necessary to discuss tho matter with
the Board of Supervisors and if-said
minority has not taken advantage
of it, it is no one's fault but their
own. Ho must admit that the
majority, namely, tho people
throughout the County, has not had
an opportunity lo discuss tho mat
ter with tho Board of Supervisors,
and it would be a physical impossi
bility for the said majority to attend
meetings of the Board for that pur
pose, that the law in itself pre
scribes the modus operandi by
which the public may have the
opportunity of hearing both sides of
any question to bo-raised under the
said law, and that their judgment
shall be final as will bo shown by
the result of their balloting.
In regard to the second count, it
is rather lato in tho day for tho
Honorable gentleman to bring up
the question of doubt- as to whether
tho people should be given tho 'right
to cast their vote at this, or any
other lime under the law passed by
the last Legislature, the Plebiscito
Law. Tho proper time for him to
have raised the question was when
he "advocated the very law referred
lo and it is believed by tho majority
of well informed citizens that the
said bill introduced by Representa
tive Ivorman Wntkins was none
other than tho "Poguo Bill," that
tho bill was inspired by Mr. Poguc
and heartily supported by him
Hie writer was told by Mr. Poguo,
when in conversation as to the best
means of securing an appropriation
for the reservoir at Olinda, that the
Plebiscite method would bring re
sults far quicker than having it go
in tho Loan bill, the time being
either nrinr in. nr iliirhm fl'io
L. . - 1 v . ij iiil. i;l.:oiui 1
of the Legislature ilmt passed the
law. I contend that if tho above is
true, that tho proper time to call
for discussion was prior to the intro
duction of tho bill and that not
having done so, the Bill having
been passed by tho Legislators, re
presentatives of the people, and be
came a law, it is no nioro than
right that the people should exer
cise their prerogative under tho law,
If tho Plebiscito Law was considerec
good by Mr. Poguc during the time
that ho was acting as Chairman of
the Board of Supervisors in power,
it is good now when ho is no longer
Chairman of tho Board of Super
visors and 110 longer in power. In
the matter of the necessity for such
improvements, he has only to con
suit tho report of the Committee of
citizens referred to, as well as that
of the County Engineer and further
to take into consideration tho long
drought just past where it is gener
ally known throughout the County
that there was no water in tho Kula
Pipo Lino for about 0110 month.
He has only to consult tho Board of
Health to satisfy himself of the
necessity of improvements to the
Water System of Wailuku arrd Ka
hului, as well us the people of liana,
to satisfy himself as to the necessity
of preventing accidents and possible
loss of human lifo by reason of rot
ten bridges in tho liana District.
In tho third count Mr. Poguc
suggests that the County of Maui
expend the five hundred or a thou
sand dollars, what tho Plebiscite
would cost, for purchasing tanks to
supply wator, presumably during
