Maui Kamaaina Takes
Crack at Loan Fund
Some unknown Maullto, who very
evidently doesn't like tho way tho
Maul loan fund commission is hand
ling Its work, has sought the aid of
tho Honolulu Advertiser's pow,erfvO
kahuna, with hope of getting relief
for his grouch. The letter he has
written is as follows:
Kahuna Nul, co Tho Advertiser:
Say, look here, Kahuna Nul, what's
the matter with our Maul friend,
Frank Baldwin, being governor. He's
a crackcrjack for business got all
these malihlnls lashed to tho mast for
hustle and efficiency. And kind and
generous you bet! Ask any Hawai
ian, any worker; you'll sec!
And If you're any Kahuna you'll be
gin right off a red-hot prayer that will
rid Maul of the bunch of slow young
malihlnls on tho Loan Fund Commis
sion. Ten thousand dollars Is what the
legislature gave for a reservoir and
for tho caro of tho sick. And that
hunch supposed to bo making plans
and specifications havo already used
up nearly $1000 paying themselves
salaries. Every milo of "specifica
tions" has to go to "Charlie Fob"
overy week or so to bo O. K.'d, and
that young man at tho head of tho
bunch keeps throwing out all the
thing3 planned for tho kitchen for
those sick fellows on the mountain.
"All to expensive," ho says. First the
kitchen chimney went; then tho store,
etc., etc. And when he is throwing
out, timo goes, and tho money, too!
So you just get to work now. Go to
it! Mako that tobacco prayer of
yours and free us from tho awful in
cubus of malihlnls.
A LONG-SUFFEBING KAMAAINA.
PUBLIC WORKS DELAYING WORK
Tho loan fund comlsslon will hold
a meeting tomorrow morning, but un
less the tomorrow morning's mall
bring3 some approvals from tho pub
lic works department, thero will not
bo much business to transact. Most
of tho field and otllco work of tho loan
fund engineer's office has been com
pleted, and tho force for tho most
part is being sent back to Honolulu.
As soon as tho plans and specifications
on tho various projects aro passed
upon in Honolulu, bids will bo called
for and actual construction begun.
