TOWN HALL MEETINGS.
HE new Haiku homesteaders have set an example of what
might well he taken up on a larger scale hy the people of Maui
generally. The new comers have formed an organization which
they call a farmers' club, but which is a good deal more than its
name implies. It holds monthly meetings, and a good "many extra
oiks thrown in for good measure. It meets at the Kuiaha school house
and all kinds of things of general community interest are discussed.
A program committee has something on tap at every meeting, and
often an outside speaker is secured to discuss some special topic. The
success of this new community is going to be due in no small part to
Now Honolulu is trying to work up something along the same line.
The proposition has been submitted by President George R. Carter, of
the Chamber of Commerce that a general town meeting be held once
each month for general discussion of matters of general interest. Spe
cial effort is to be made to get the view point of every class of citizen
in Honolulu on these things. The idea is not new. Mr. Carter would
call these gatherings "Town Hall meetings," after the old New Eng
land plan where the whole community got together and talked over
their affairs in a more or less informal way. Everybody had a right to
be heard on any subject. Things that everybody should be interested
in, were put forward in a way that few could fail to be interested in.
Maui as a whole ought to be able to institute such an organization
that would be especially effective. The community is not so large as
to be unwieldly. At these Town Hall meetings it should be the aim
to have every section represented either in person or through reports.
Make the meetings educational, but largely as to our local affairs.
There is plenty we don't know in this connection. Don't try to force
issues that can't be forced there is too much that can be agreed upon
to risk disruption over minor matters.

HERE are a great many people in this Territory who will fully
agree with the Garden Island in its following editorial:
The legislature evidently thought that an agricultural
and mechanical fair at Honolulu in 1914 would be a good
thing and was in line with the wishes of the voters of the
Territory, otherwise the provision for such would not have
been made. In the absence cf any explanation, we are
somewhat at sea in regard to the matter, but we certainly
regard as most peculiar the action of the Governor in deli
berately refusing to permit the law to take its course. The
executive may have good reasons for holding up this propo
sition and law; but if so he has not found occasion to en- 1
lighten the public on the same. As a general proposition
we view with much disfavor any disposition on the part of
the executive to override mandatory laws of the people, as
put forward by their representatives iu the Legislature;
and the executive should in no case attempt to throttle a
statute, without first ascertaining that the move is iu ac
cord with the will of the people.
No politics enter into this discussion. There is nothing
unfriendly intended nor to be implied. Our idea is, how
ever, that if the executive is to assume the right to over
ride mandatory enactments of the Legislature, we might ns
well do away with the Legislature altogether and let the
governor make the laws to suit himself, in the first in
stance. The practice of executives overriding statutes is not hew
iu Hawaii. Kvery governor we have had has done more
or less of it. Hut it is a dangerous habit when once form
ed, and we are hopeful that our new chief executive will
break away from it before it has fastened itself upon him.
The Honolulu Ad. Club which claims a membership of 578 prom
inent men, has issued a pamphlet entitled: "Nawiliwili Needs a Break
water! Will You Help to Get It?" K ahului also needs another break
water from the aihee side of the harbor to make the harbor what it
should lie and to prevent the anchorage from sanding up from the cur
rent which now sets directly into it. Move-over this improvement has
the full endorsement of the government engineers and should not be dif
ficult to get through Congress. The Ad. Club would 110 doubt help
Maui the same as it is helping the Kauai project. In fact the Ad. Club
has indicated a keen desire to get in touch with us. If we don't take
advantage of our opportunities we have no one but ourselves to blame.
Hawaii couniv has been building roads with Territorial prisoners
for the last seven years. It started when A. E. C. Atkinson was act
ing governor during Carter's administration. Atkinson conceived the
idea of building the road into the crater of Haleinauniau, and started
the convicts working. They built that road and are now road building
in Kau. When they get through here, says a Hilo exchange, it
is the intention to put them to work on the Puna road. "Governor
Jack" isn't in position to force Maui to accept a like favor and have a
road built up Ilaleakala. If we want it (and also a share of Hawaii's
tourist business) we shall probably have ask.
Thk Governor is about to float some more Territorial bonds as au
thorized by the Legislature some years ago. He has not confided to
Maui, however, how she is to fare in the matter or perhaps it's none
of our business.
Visitors to Honolulu this week bring back word that the Ad. Club
wants to know when we are going to have another get-together dinner.
Who can answer? don't all speak at once.
Kauai is getting into the ranks of the get-together propagandists
The chamber of commerce of the Garden Island has adopted "lunch,
eon-sessions" as a means towards this end.
