LET'S HAVE THE BELT ROAD MONEY.
TIIK Hoard of Supervisors has told the Governor that the most
important item for Maui in the proposed Territorial bond issue,
is for completing -the hclt road into the Keanae valley. The
Hoard is right in this. Several hundred thousand dollars has already
spent, which will he well-nigli wasted, unless the road is carried
on into Keanae. For as it stands the road is useless for any purpose,
and must deteriorate rapidly if it is not completed. It was carried to
its present stage with the expectation that the balance of the money
authorized ly the Legislature would he forthcoming. It is worse than
folly to slop now. It is not a question as to the merits of the road in
question. It is a question of saving money by spending money. Hut
the expenditure of the $13.VM asked for does mean more than simply
furnishing an outlet to the people of the inaccessable valley. It means
a link in what is destined to be one of Maui's greatest assets an auto
mobile roai 1 from one end of Maui to the other.
TALKING ABOUT OURSELVES.
AI.OT of our friends very charitably commiserate with us when
we get out a poor paper, on the theory that "news is scarce."
It isn't. There is plenty of material here on Maui all the time
for a dandv local paper, and when we don't have that kind, it's our
fault. We don't want to hide behind that old lie about scarcity of
news. Hut we are rather up against it to handle this news. It's a fear
ful thing in this age of the world to set up a paper letter by letter, and
then to unset it the same way. Hut that's the way we do it. In short,
our facilities are not equal to our needs. However, we expict to soon
remedy this defect in considerable measure, and to publish the kind of
a paper that we want to publislr, and that you want to receive. In the
meantime we are doing the very best we can under the circumstances
I'Kcnnr.i.Y no where else in the United States was the outcome of the
great international polo tournament watched for with keener interest,
or were the results more keenly disappointing than here in Hawaii.
The prominent place which the sport has attained in the Islands in the
past few years, has produced a great following of enthusiasts. To
Maui's players, the loss of the trophy to Kngland comes almost with the
weight of a icrsonal defeat.
Tiikkk seems to be room for much doubt as to the authenticity of
the report that the administration is planning to restore a portion of
the sugar duty. On the other hand Secretary of Commerce Red field,
in a telegram to a San Francisco business house, recently, specifically
denied all knowledge of any such plan being considered.
I'lVU tourists on Maui this week left behind some JU0. About half
of this is up in Makawao at this minute, and all of it is already circu
lating pretty freely. The tourist crop is about the best paying crop
there is, not excepting even sugar.

timber and woodwork, etc., against
Insects, Vermin, Worms, Teredos,
BAROL prolongs the life of wood
work, no matter if the
woodwork is placed above or below
ground or water. The application
of BAt.OL is economical, saving cost
of material and labor due to repair,
replacement and rebuilding.
BAROL improves the tensile
strength and toughness of
timber and woodwork and permits
the use of smaller sized, inferior or
dead timbers. Woods which were
once considered worthless can be
treated with BAROL and made to
last practically as long as any others.
BAROL being composed of oils of
great wood preserving
quality amalgamated with certain
Copper Compounds checks wood
destroying bacteria and fungi.
BAROL being fatty and viscous,
volatilization is reduced to
BAROL therefore remains water
repelling and withstands
atmospheric or climatic action for
BAROL having high specific grav
ity (1.132) penetrates deep
into the pores of the wood.
BAROL prevents swelling, shrink
ing, warping and checking
of the wood; it can be applied to
constructions where the wood is sub
jected to alternately wet and dry
BAROL possesses a slight odor
which soon disappears
after application, it remains liquid, is
always ready for use and will keep
any length of time.
BAROL is neither inflammable nor
poisonous; it is not injuri
ous to the fibers of the wood; it with
