Raymond Willing To
Take Pali's Place
But Will Not Ask For It Denies
Politics Have Been Played In Pali
Case Points to Democratic Record
"If the Governor wants mc to
if ho asks me to accept the vacancy
on the board of supervisors, I shall
do It. Hut I have not, and will not
ask for the plaw, nor have I discussed
the matter with the Governor. And
the reason I am ready to accept, Is
because I believe I am warranted in
taking it, in that I was unfairly de
feated in the last election."
Dr. J. H. Raymond made this state
ment to the MAUI NEWS this after
noon, lie denied that there was any
thing political in the appointment of
Supervisor Philip Pali to the Lahaina
district magistracy. On the contrary
he maintains that Pall was recom
mended to the place after a careful
canvas had failed to show anyone so
Politics have not entered into the
appointments made by Governor Pink
ham, Dr. Raymond declares, and
points to long list of republicans,
appointed not only here on Maui but
all over the Territory. "It has been
efficiency first," said Raymond, in
referring to the Governor's policy in
this matter; and he further detlarcd
that Governor Pinkham has got into
plenty of trouble with his party be
cause of this very thing.
No Collusion With Pali.
"There has been no collusion with
Pali, no obligation exacted of him, in
the matter of his appointment, which
was purely in the interests of cflicien
cy," Dr. Raymond insisted, "And Pali
is a republican. I cannot remember
of single instance in which a democrat
was ever appointed a district magist
rate by a republican chief justice."
Could Play Politics.
"If the republicans think the ap
pointment of Pali was politics," Dr.
Raymond further stated, "And if they
really want things run on political
lines, I want you to say for me that I
am ready to urge upon the Governor
the appointment of any republican
they name to take Pali's place on the
board of supervisors, provided they
are also ready to have me urge the
removal of all republicans holding
office in the county and in Honolulu.
From a political standpoint, that
would be a perfectly legitimate pro
position." Foss Is Low Bidder

For Hawaiian Death
Staggered in Front of Slow Moving
Machine of Circuit Clerk Schoen
bcrg Skull Crushed By Fall
Tl Wahalana, a well known Ha
waiian resident of Waihee, died at
the Malulani Hospital, Wailuku, on
Monday as a result of being struck
by an automobile driven by Victor C.
Schoenberg, clerk of the second circ
uit court, last Saturday afternoon.
The accident occurred on Market
street, near the fish market, and was
witnessed by a large number of per
sons. No blame attaches to Schoen
berg, who was driving very slowly at
the time, as is shown by the fact
that he stopped his machine within
about two feet, after striking the man.
Mr. Schoenberg was accompanied at.
the time by his sister-in-law, Mis.; Han
sen. Wahalana, who was intoxicated.
dodged from behind an automobile
standing at the makai curb, and direct
ly in the path of Schoenberg's car.
The left fender struck him on the hip,
but instead of throwing him forward,
as might have been expected, he fell
backwards, striking his head upon the
pavement. His skull was fractured by
the fall. Deputy Sheriff Ferreira and
Policeman Wilson, who happened to
be witnesses of the accident, ran and
picked the unfortunate man up. An
automobile wheel had passed over one
arm, but had not touched the body. A
bottle partly full of wine in the man's
pocket, had not been broken by his
fall. He was hurried to the hospital
but did not regain conseioii&ne.-.s. An
autopsy disclosed a profuse hemorr
hage in the brain, which was the
immediate cause of the death.
The deceased was about 45 years
of age. He was a laborer and was
not married. It is understood that
he was a native of Oahu, but he had
lwed on Maul for many years.
Jury Says Accident.
The roroner iurv. which sat at the
inquest on the case, on Wednesday
evening, heard the testimony ot a
dozen or more eye-witnesses to the
nreirtent. nnd rendered a verdict of
accidental death. The testimony of
all the witnesses was substantially
the same, and absolved Mr. Schoen
berg of blame. The jury was com
posed of: D. T. Carey, Amos Mozetta,
W. R. Boote, Recardo Silva, Manuel
Dutro, and Joe Hannan.
