THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, AUGUST 7, 1915.
OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
A New Stunt.
The scheme whereby the county
bids for a teirttorlal job and, of
course, secures the contract on ac
count of being able tounderbid any
of the other tenderers. Is a strange
one but, according to the authorities
1b legal and satisfactory. The fact that
the county will have to put up bonds
In the same way as any private con
tractor is reassuring, for otherwise
there might be all sorts of trouble.
The county might not complete the
contract on time or for the specified
amount of money. Who would then
safeguard the people who, eventual
ly, pay for the work? A job might
cost twice the contracted for amount
and the tax-payers would have to grin
and bear It. However, if bonds are
provided by the county, there would
appear to be no legal objection to the
county doing territorial work by on
tract, provided that the sarje string
ent Inspectorship Is carried out and
the job is watched as closely as any
private contractor's would be.
There is, however, another phase
of the matter, and that Is that even
with the county giving bonds to the
territory for the due carrying out of
the contract, the onus of the blame
will fall on the shoulders of the coun
ty if the contract is not fulfilled. The
bonding company would of course,
finally, look to the county for pay
ment of the bond, and the merry-go-round
circuit would wind up with the
tax-payers out of pocket in the long
run. Hawaii Herald.
Kick It's Your Privilege as a Citizen.
We know it Is a lot of fun to watch
the newspapers throw stones of criti
cism at the county officers on account
of their extravagance. But the tax
paying citizens who bear the brunt of
the extravagance are as much to
blame as are the office holders. They
are to blame because they avoid their
duty and privilege as citizens.
The recipient of a salary from the
county becomes inured to newspaper
criticism, but he dodges when a body
of taxpayers take up the attack. Do
not make all your complaints to the
newspapers. Shy a stone of complaint
at the supervisors occasionally and
you will find they react to public
opinion, on Hawaii, the same as they
do anywhere else. It is all a part of
The newspapers and the office hold
ers are not the only ones responsible
for the government being good or bad.
Much depends on you as a citizen.
If it is good, it is because you make
it so; if it is bad, it is for the same
reason. Just impress that fact on your
supervisor the next time you meet
him face to face and you will see a
wonderful improvement in the service
he and his associates give the county.
Kick when county affairs are not run
right i-it's your duty and privilege as
a citizen. Hilo Tribune.
The "Hypocrites," a "movie" exhib
ited at Ye Liberty theater during the
week, was objected to by some be
cause of a lack of clothing on some
of the characters in the picture. How
about the statuary at the Y. M. C. A.?
On the Other Islands
Floating Bottlea.Worth $5.
Several bottles have recently been
picked up recently in the vicinity of
the Islands that are worth $5 each.
The Japanese government some time
ago set adrift about 2000 sealed bot
tles for the purpose of testing the
ocean currents of the Pacific. In each
bottle is a notice printed in, five lan
guages,' requesting the finder of the
bottle to send it to the Japanese fish
commission and receive $5 reward.
May Soon Raise F4.
The cruiser Maryland is expected to
arrive from San Francisco next week
with the four pontoons by means of
which it is expected the sunken sub
marine F4 will be raised.
Killed By a Mule.
Matsukichl Komatsu, an employee
of the Hawaiian Sugar Company at
Makaweli, Kauai, was thrown by a
mule last Friday and sustained such
injuries that he died. A coroner's
Jury returned a verdict accordingly,
Japanese Acquire Sugar Mill.
J. B. Castle, of Honolulu, has dis
posed of his holdings in the Kona
Development Company and the West
Hawaii Railroad Company, to a Jap
anese syndicate headed by T. Cono,
of Papaaloa. Hawaii The deal is said
to involve a consideration of about
$300,000. By the deal the Japanese
will come into control of about 6000
acres of good land, of which about
1200 acres are held in fee. The land
has a sugar mill upon it, which-produced
about 4000 tons of sugar last
Public Utilities Ha Maul Kick.
At its meeting in Honolulu on Tues
day, the Public Utilities Commission
had a complaint from a Maui citizen
who claimed that be had a telephone
Installed and that although the ins
trument was not put in until six days
after the first of the month, he was
charged with a full month's rent. The
commission instructed the secretary
i o ask the telephone company for an
explanation. The name of the com
plainant has not been published,
Y. W. C. A. Buy Elks Building.
Thirty-five thousand dollars in cash
and pledges has been received by the
Honolulu Y. W. C. A. within the last
three weeks from business men and
women interested in association work,
to purchase from the ElkB the old Y
M. C. A. building at Hotel and Alakea
streets as a permanent home for the
The Sugar Commission.
We are hopeful that the plantation
men of Kauai are not unmindful of
the importance of the commission
which has been sent to the Islands to
Investigate sugar conditions.
The Congressmen were here in the
Spring on a sort of general mission
principally, however, to see the coun
try and meet the people. Their visit
was Important, as results will un
But this special commission comes
here for a definite purpose, that pur
pose being to investigate the thing
most vital to our business stability
and our prosperity. It will ferret out
facts regarding sugar, and reach a con
clusion as to the eftect free riiigar will
probably have upon the Islands, '.h:rh
will reach Congress and will be heed
ed. Wt bespeak for the commission
every courtesy, and hope that it may
be supplle'd with every facility for
getting at the exact facts. In the fore
ground and ever present, however,
should be the reminder that evidences
of present prosperity, which may be
seen, are due to the war in Europe,
which has temporarily stayed the dam
aging effects that would have, and
still must, come from a reduced tariff
on BUgar. Garden Island.
Even Legislators Guilty of Errors!
Attorneys are chuckling over Sec
tion 44 of the Workmen's Compensa
tion Act, which reads: "All rights
of compensation granted by this act
shall have the same preference or
priority for the whole thereof against
the assets of the employer as is al
lowed by law for unpaid wages for
labor." The joke is that Hawaii sta
tutes do not give a preference or
priority right for unpaid wages, as is
the case in most of the states of the
Union. We call attention to this mere
ly to make evident that legislators are
human. They fall a prey to errors the
same as do editors and doctors, not
to mention those who do not adver
tise or bury their mistakes. Hilo Tri
bune. The Workmen's Compensation Act
does not seem to appeal very much
to a certain class of plantation lab
orers who claim that they are worse
off under the new law than when
their welfare was take ncare of by
the plantation managers. Formerly
laborers who were injured in the per
formance of their duties always re
ceived full pay while laid off. Now
they claim, they may have to lay off
for a few days on account of a slight
injury, and in doing so are deprived of
the wages they would have earned if
at work. Hawaii Herald.
The anti-treatirg rule imposed upon
liquor license holders on Maui de
serves careful watching. If a rule
such as that is made effective it will
cut down the bar receipts by seventy
five per cent. About one drink out of
four is taken because the drinker
wants it; the other three he takes be
cause it is either his turn to buy"
and he must not show himself a nig
gard, or because it is somebody else's
turn to buy and he must not be so
impolite as to refuse. Advertiser.

"The Hypocrites" to
Be Shown on Maui
Remarkable Picture Drama That Has
Caused Much Comment Produc
tion Said to be Startling.
Reports from Honolulu concerning
the production of "The Hypocrites."
the moving picture which was de
nounced before it was shown on ac
count of the fact that a nude woman
appears as one of the characters, in
dicate that the picture was one of the
finest offerings of the year, and at
tracted the largest audiences, but that
it failed to shock anybody. Far from
being immodest, the production is de
clared to be a most serious sermon
in pictures, and to carry. a vivid moral
lesson to everyone.
Whether tile figure of a naked wo
man, personifying "The Naked Truth"
way introduced into the play by the
producers to draw patrons who might
wiBn to see a salacious feature, or
whether a sincere desire for beautiful
symbolism prompted the somewhat
startling innovation, Is probably a de
W hatever the motive. Marcaret Ed
wards, who appears naked as the per
sonification of Truth, handles her dif
ficult role in a manner above criticism.
The slender, wraith-like figure which
leads the priest on to the heights
where Truth dwells, far from being
a sensual feature, has even no sensu
ous appeal. The photography has been
so expert that Truth, when she ap
pears, instead of seeming a flesh and
blood woman, is more like an intangi
ble floating fragment of a dream. At
nearly all times the figure is semi
transparent, with vague outlines of the
background showing through.
After a medieval prologue, most sat
isfyingly staged, which shows the ston
ing to death of an ascetic who has
sculptured Truth as a nude woman,
the characters of the old-time tragedy
appear in the modern play, which cen
ters around the efforts of a pastor to
arouse his congregation. Truth then
appears to him, and holds up her mir
ror. The politician is shown to be a
bribe taker, society refuses to receive
Truth unless she comes veiled; a love
tragedy in which Truth is denied is
shown; a home is wrecked because
the parents blind themselves to physi
ological truths, and the present day
Interpretation of modesty comes in for
a hard rap.
The picture appears on Maul for
the first time tonight at the Pala Or
pheum. Next Monday night It will
be shown at the Kahului Lyceum, and
on Tuesday evening, at the Valley
Isle Theatre. Waiiuku.
