Law Must Be
Neglect To Issue Proclamation Makes
Regular Election Impossible On
Maui Other Islands Also Need
Change Candidates Perturbed.
But for the fact that the legislature
Is in 3esslon, this would be a sad day
for political candidates In this Terri
tory. For lt Is going to requlro a
special act of the law makers to make
possible the holding of tho regular
election on May 4th next.
At least this Is tho situation In Maul
and Hawaii, and possibly on the other
islands as well.
This momentous fact dropped on
tho expectant nominees like a bomb
shell this week when a representative
of the Maul News called attention to
the fact that, through some oversight,
t!io supervisors had neglected to issue
the required proclamation for Ihe
election sixty days in advance of the
time fixed by law. Real consternation
reigned for a time until it was realised
that tho legislature could probably be
counted upon to come to the rescue
and chango the law.
As a result of the oversight, the re
publican central executive committee
was hastily called together, and at a
meeting held Thursday afternoon, It
was decided that tho matter should be
put up to the law making body at
once. Chairman Sam Kalama accord
ingly started for Honolulu last night.
The law provides' that tho supervis
ors shall Issue the proclamation an
nouncing tho time and place of the
election and the offices to bo filled,
not less than sixty days in advance.
In this county this was overlooked en
tirely. In Hawaii county the procla
mation nppeared on March 19, or
about 45 days before tho 4th of May.
On Kauul tho proclamation was made
on March 3.
In this last instance, however, al
though tho date Is sufficiently in ad
vance of tho election, it was belore
the holding of the primaries,' and
hence tho question arises as to how
tho supervisors' could specify what
offices wero to be filled, inasmuch as
the primary law provides that offices
may bo filled at the- primary if a can
didate secures a majority ot all tho
In any event tho legislature will
have to straighten out tho tangle, and
this will probably bo done by reducing
the time for issuing the proclamation
to 15 or 20 days before the election.
Had the legislature not been In ses
sion it is generally conceded that
there could be no election, and the of
fices not filled at tho primaries, would
have to remain In tho hands of their
present Incumbents until another elec
tion time rolled around.

To Entertain Visitors
Chamber of Commerce Takes First
Step Towards Propery Caring For
Big Party Due Here In May.
Plans are already on foot for prop
erly entertaining the big congression
al party when It arrives on Maui some
time in May. At a meeting of the
chamber of commerce called for the
purpose for Thursday afternoon this
week, the matter was discussed and
a committee of five was appointed to
have general charge of entertaining
the distinguished visitors. This com
mittee consists of: L. Welnzheimer,
D. H. Case, Wm. Walsh, L. von Temp
sky, and D. C. Lindsay.
It was understood thnt the commit
tee is to have full power to appoint
other special committees as It may
find need for.
The congreslsonal party, which will
sail from San Francisco on April 27,
and which will he In the Territory for
a full month, will consist of 138 mem
bers of tho two houses of congress,
besides many of tho wives of mem
bers, nowspaper correspondents, and
possibly others. Approximately 20
persons will probably be In the party.
The Maul lommitteo has already
held one meeting at which the matter
of entertainment was discussed suffi
ciently to recognize that it has a big
job on its hands.
Favored By Chamber
In all probability tho Maui Chamber
of Commerce will decide to provide
the ?200 or $300 necessary for a
scholarship in the College of Hawaii,
this scholarship to bo offered through
competition to some eligible gradualo
of the Maui Cential High School. D.
C. Lindsay, who is chairman of the
committee appointed to look into tiie
feasibility of offering such a scholar
ship has reported that the 1P1G class
of tho High School will probably bo
large enough to warrant offering the
prize. There is a decided sentiment
in the Chamber In favor of tho ldi-a,
suggested some lime since by Pres
ident Dean, of tho College.

National Guard of
Maui MayBe Doubled
Plan To Organize Infantry Companies
at Puunene and Paia and Cavalry
Troop at Makawao Company I Has
If the plans of tho regular army nnd
National Guard officers are realized,
Maul will soon have a complete bat
talion of civilian soldiers-, Including a
troop of cavalry at Makawao. This
will man that instead of the two
companies on tho island as at present,
there will bo five, Including tho cav
Lt. W. C. Whitener, U. S. A., ins
pector of National Guard in the Terri
tory, who made the annual Inspection
of Companies I and L last Sunday,
also took occasion to go Into the mat
ter of the new companies in some de
tail. Before he loft ho declared him
self extremely pleased at the outlook
and by the manner In which the Idea
had been received by prominent men
of Maul with whom he discussed it.
Ono of tho infantry companies, if
the plan goes through, will havo head
quarters at Puuneno or Kahulul, and
the other at Paia. The cavalry con
tingent, 1th headquarters at Makawao,
will be made up of young men of Ma-kan-ao
and Kula, who can supply
their own horses.
Local officers of tho National Guard
express the conviction that there is
ample material available for the pro
posed increase of tho local militia,
and there will ho no difficulty In or
ganizing them, especially so tdnce
there will probably be earnest co-
peration on the part of most of the
employers of the young men to bo re
cruited. Record Attendance by Co. I.
While Lt. Whitener would not com
ment on tho relative efficiency of tho
Maul companies as compared with
others of the guard, ponding tho ap
pearance of his official report, It Is
believed that a very creditable show
ing was made. In the matter of at
tendance, Company I. of Walluku,
despite the fact that her men conic
from all over central Maul, broke the
attendance lecord of the Islands, with
84 out of a strength of 100 answer
ing the roll call.
Rifle Dutts Soon.
According to Capt. Kaae, of Com
pany!, tho long hoped for target range
for his company is likely soon to be
an actuality. The survey of tho site
has recently been mado by County
Engineer Howell, and tho leate is now
being prepared by County Attornev
Case. As soon as this is completed,
the lease from the Walluku Sugar
Company will be executed, and within
a week or two at most the butts will
be in place and ready for use.
Imminent, Says Westgate
J. M. Westgate, director ol tbe Ha
waii Experiment Station, addressed a
large gathering of homesteaders an"
othors last Saturday night at tho
Kuiaha sehoolhouse. Mr. Westgate.
who has but recently taken charge of
tho station, coming to the Islands
from Washington, spoko In optlmlsrln
vein regarding tho future of agricul
ture in the Territory, and nssured hi1?
audience that the success of the Kula-h-
homesteads Is a mutter of much
moment In the department.
That the Territory 'should bo self
supporting for strategical reasons he
pointed out is recognized in Washing
ton, and no efforts aro to bo spared
to make it so.
Mr. Westgate discussed the mat
ter of tho proposed consolidation of
the various agricultural bureaus, in
cluding the Experiment Station, nnd
Collego of Hawaii, as advocated by
tho Chamber of Commerce, and ex
pressed tho opinion that no such com
bination, in so far as the station Is
concerned can bo hoped for in tho
immediate luture. Ho suggested that
this might occur lator, if it could be
demonstrated that tho best interests
of tho diversified agriculturists will
be best served by it.
