The County of Hawaii's three-day

will also take an exhibit of corn and
other farm products from his own
homestead at Kulalia, so that Maul
will be represented In the display.
Hawaii's fair Is Intended to be a
typical county fair such as are so im
portant in almost all parts of the
mainland. There are to be prizes for
exhibits of all kinds of farm produce,
ainmals and other products of the Is
lands. Although this is tho first at
tempt at giving such a fair in tho
Territory, tho idea seems to have
taken a firm hold and both Oahu and
-Knual are consideilng establishing
similar annual institutions. There Is
likewise talk of such a feature here
on Maul for next year:

Must Dig Up
Haleakala Rest House Committee
Points Out That Outsiders Have
Contributed Bulk of Money Calls
Upon Maui to Subscribe Balance.
Now is tho time for tho people who
believe in tho value of Haleakala as
an asset to Maul to como to the front
and help to mako tho place access
ablo to tho visitor. Tho committee
of the chamber of commerce, which
has the matter of building a rest
house on tho mountain, announces
that it needs about $1000 more than
tho amount subscribed by the mem
bers of tho Civic Convention. It points
out that practically all of tho $1300
raised at that time was contributed by
persons and concerns outside of Maul,
and that it Is not expecting too much
for Maul to come across with tho bal
ance needed. Chairman Lufkln. of tho
committee states that a number of
small contributions have, recently
come to hand, but that the balance
must bo raised within the next few
Tho committee expects to receive
the working plans for the house from
Honolulu any day now, and as soon as
these aro received, materials will bo
ordered and work at onco bo started.
It Is tho hopo of the commlttco to
have the building completed around
about tho first of tho year, and when
this is done not only tourists, but
Maui folk, who have hesitated to mako
tho trip, will bo able to really enjoy
a visit to what Is really one of the
wonders of tho world.

Job as Clerk
Supervisors Put Large Powers in Hands
of Engineer May Appoint All Coun-
ty Overseers and Road Employees
But Board Must Approve.
By a formal ordinance adopted at
tho meeting of the board of super
visors last week, the odlco of the
county engineer has been definitely
established, nnd tho duties and pre
rogatives outlined. This ordinance Is
published In full In another column
under a "By Authority" head, and is
By the ordinanco tho engineer is
given a laige amount of power, as
well as a corresponding degree of
responsibility. Ho Is given tho au
thority to employ all district over
seers and other employees necessary
In tho construction or maintenance
or operation of roads, and water
works. Ho also has the authority to
select a clerk to have charge of his
olfico, and this last named place, En
gineer Howell has already filled
through tho appointment of 'James N.
K. Keola, until lately deputy assessor
for this district.
Big Batch of Would-Be Candidates For All Jobs on Calen
dar, According to Report- Much More Interest
Manifested Than in Territorial Election.
If there was a dearth of interest in
the recent Territorial election, thero
will not bo any such lack In the coun
ty elections which take placo next
spring, according to prosf-nt indica
tions. Already the woods seem to bo
full of candidates for tho various
county jobs, and thero will bo more
to hear from. And tho primary law
being In effect, there Is nothing to
prevent all of those aspirants from
getting before the people.
It is understood that Dr. J. H.
Raymond, who was appointed a few
months ago by Governor PInkham to
fill tho unexpired term of W. Hennlng,
will make the raco In the next May
elections to succeed himself. Bolus
a democrat, there Is very excellent
likelihood that he will got tho .nomi
nation without difficulty, but whether
or not ho can bo elected is another
matter. Tho fact, however, that the
Doctor has proved himself an excel
lent worker for the good of the coun
ty, may go a good ways towards over
coming tho natural disadvantage of
his party allegiance.
A good deal of Interest is manifest
ed in tho talk that Charles Lake, 1?
willing to give up tho honors of Coun
ty Supervisor, provided he can annex
thoso of sheriff instead. But Lake
isn't tho only one that has an eyo on
Clem Crowell's job, for according to
report Ex-Judgo John Kalua thinks
the placo would fit him to a nicety.
Kaae To Have Opposition.
Also it is pretty certain that W. F.
Kaae, who since the beginning of
county government has .been county
clerk, Is this year to have a real con
test on his hands. James N. K. Keola,
who until dropped a fow weeks ago
by tho democratic administration, was
deputy assessor for Walluku district,
Is pretty certain to havo a lightning
rod out for tho nomination, accord
ing to political gossip; whllo It Is
strongly hinted that George Cum
mings may do tho dark-horso stunt
at the last minute and upset both
Kaao's and Kcola's plans.
Everybody Would Be Supervisor.
Georgo Copp, of Makawao, is said
to havo been thinking a little of tak
ing tho chairmanship of tho board ol
supervisors from Sam Kalama, though
tho latter doesn't look much worried
as yet." But it is over Hana way that
things aro really boginning to simmer

local veterinarian, will make a com

their supply Is derived is not infected

Isn't tho only ono with tho same no

Joseph would probably not try to hide

many persons In Hana that aro try

get on the ticket. Tho democrats of
Hana will also probably put their de
