.Objects to Secret Sessions and Knocks Out Standing
Committees in First Round. Piles Work On Chair
man's Shoulders. Promotion Gets Its $50.
The rule of precedent got its hody
blow in the Board of Supervisors
this week. An iconoclast sat in the
deliberations of the county body,
and within half an hour after the
opening session Thursday morning,
a choice bunch of cherished idols
wore in hopeless fragments.
Dr. J. II. Raymond, the lately
appointed member to succeed Win.
Ilenning, resigned, was the disturb
ing factor. He is the lone Dem
ocrat on the board, and holds only
until next May, unless he shall be
then elected to succeed himself; but
from indications he will he very
much in evidence while ho does re
main. The fun began when Supervisor
Drummond moved to go into caucus
session, for the purpose of reorgan
izing tho standing committees of
the board. Dr. Raymond objected.
In the first place he didn t favor
caucuses or executive sessions, or
other star-chamber proceedings of
the board. In the second place ho
isn't in favor of any standing com
mittees. He forthwith mado a
motion that the standing commit
tees bo abolished, and tho motion
carried with a rush.
Then tho strenuous doctor began
finding work for the chairman of the
board to do. He insisted that Chair
man Kalama was supposed to do
tho executive work of the body,
Democratic Objection Caused Much
Extra Work and Expense All Over
Territory Courts Not Asked to
A row kicked up by the demo
cratic leaders in Honolulu, over
the form of printed ballot for the
primary electton today, was the
cause of a new set of ballots hav
ing to be printed, not only on
Oahu, but in the other Counties as
well. Much mystery prevailed here
until the matter was explained
early in the week by wireless from
the Secretary's office.
The objection raised was that
the sentences "Vote for One On-
! Vote for 5
) . .fid their Hawaiiai
'Vote for Six Only," etc.,
Hawaiian equivalent, were
placed at the left and right sides of
the ballot, respectively, and imme
diately over the Republican and
Lahui columns. This, it was con
tended, gave an unfair advantage
to the two parties. The matter was
not decided by the supreme court,
' but the change was finally agreed
to by the leaders of the several
parties in Honolulu.
It required some fast work to re
place the spoiled stock, print the
new ballots, and get them distri
buted to the various precincts, but
by use of wireless and employment
of special messengers this was fin
ally accomplished, though at a
very considerable additional cost.
The cQa?ection agreed to, con
'N sisted in'-shifting the sentences re
ferred to, until th-y partly cov
ered two party columns, instead of
which ha3 in tho past been referred
to committees. His idea attain pre
vailed, and before the meeting was
over tho Chairman had been loaded
up with a big bunch of work.
A connnitteo of the Chamber of
Commerce, appointed to meet tho
board in regard to the matter of fix
ing up tho roa(s in the Kuiaha dis
trict, waited on the board on Thurs
day afternoon, and got the promise
of the board that everything possi
ble will bo done, and all moneys
that may be utilized for the purpose,
will be expended in fixing up the
district. Tho committee consisted
of W. 0. Aiken, F. F. Baldwin,
Win. Walsh, and II. W. Rice. Tho
board adjourned on Friday morning
while Chairman Kalama and Hugh
Howell, as expert, made a trip of
inspection in the homestead district,
to report before the board adjourns
for the month.
Dr. Raymond gave notice that he
will later offer a resolution by
which an engineer is to be employ
ed as expert by tho board, to act as
an adviser to Chairman Kalama in
the road work and all engineering
On presentation of tho matter by
R. A. Wadaworth, and J. J. Walsh,
a committee of the chamber of com
merce, the board voted to resume
its contribution of 850 per month
to the promotion committee.
To Try Oahu

Maui will be represented in the
Regatta Day sports, in Honolulu

ing team. The boys, who will be
captained by W. S. Chillingworth,
expect to bring back the bacon
which was lost at Puuuene on Har
vest Home day, last month. The
team they will go up against, will
be a picked team of the flower of
Oahu's rollers, under Capt. Jas.

Maui Mounts Will Be In Good Shape
For Tournament First Match
Wednesday, Dut Maui Will .Play
By the Manoa, which will stop
at Kahului about 9 o'clock this
evening on her return trip from
Ililo, the ponies of the Maui team
will be shipped to Honolulu in
anticipation of the big inter-island
tournament, which begins next
Wednesday. Four games are to
be played, but Maui docs not play
till the second, which takes place a
week from today, and the Maui
players will not go to Honolulu
until Friday evening, the 18th.
The schedule of the four games
to'be played is as follows:
Wednesday, Sept. 16th, Oahu
Saturday, Sept. 19th, Maui vs.
Wednesday, Sept. 23rd, the
Losers of the 1st two matches.
Saturday, Sept. 26th, the Win
ners of the 1st two matches.
The Maui team will enter the
matches with a good deal of confi
deuce, having won three straight
matches during the past summer
from the Oahu team, which is pro
bably stronger than either of the
military aggregations. Besides the
shipping of the ponies six days
ahead of the first game, will insure
their being in first class condition.
The Maui line-up for the first
match follows: A. W. Collins,
No. 1; F. F. Baldwin, No. 2; H.
W. Rice, No. 3; D. T. Fleming,
Reports from Honolulu are to
the effect that the artillery, caval
ry and Oahu teams are practicing
almost daily. Oahu feels keenly
the absence of Walter Dillingham,
but has a strong team, neverthe
less. Her line-up will be: S. A.
Baldwin, No. 1; II. K. L. Castle,
No. 2: Walter Macfarlane, No. 3;
and Arthur Rice. No. 4.
This will be the first appearance
on the Moanalua Field of the First
Field Artillery team. Beard, who
will captain the team is a player
of exceptional ability and has no
doubt drilled his men well in the
finer points of the game. Oahu
will naturally outclass them in the
way of' mounts but the Artillery
men are hard riding players and
will no doubt put up an excellent
As to the Cavalry team, it is
bound to be weakened with Lieuts

the chamber of commerce of the
Garden Island, held last week, the
