WAILUKU, MAUI, T. II., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY is, 1916.
Board Reimburses McKay
For Fees Paid Twice
At Its last meeting, the board of
supervisors voted the sura of $44 to
reimburse Judge W. A. McKay for
fees collected by him on process pa
pers served, which he turned over to
the county treasurer, and which he re
cently had to pay over again to police
men who claimed these foes.
The case was one of those brought
through Attorney Eugene Murphy
against the district magistrate, and
which he won in the local courts. It
is claimed that there is a conflict in
the statutes as to the disposition to be
made of the fees for serving papers.
It has been the custom to turn them
as county realization, here on Maui,
but under another law, It would seem
that the police are entitled to them.
This is claimed to he the course taken
in Honolulu. The matter may be car
ried to the supreme court for decis
ion. Board May Soon Pass

will again be considered by the
