One Accident Board
For Whole Territory
Is Idea Of Maui Body Which Would
Also Sec Government Insurance
Bureau Other To Be Suggested
It the recommendation of the Maui
Industrial Acident Board is followed,
the coming legislature will so amend
the workmen's compensation law of
the territory so that one board will
handle the work which is now handled
independently ly the several county
The Maui hoard held a meeting last
Monday morning at which this and
various other ohanges in the law were
suggested. The hoard helieves that
the work could he hotter administer
ed by a single body devoting most' of
their time to the work, and with paid
rierks on each of the islands. The
ho-ird also tinji-s that a uniform form
of policy he prescribed for insurance
companies desiring to do business und
er the net. It would also have the
companies required to .furnish insur
ance to small employers at a much
lov er minimum than the present 510
Want A Territorial Insurance
The Maui board Is also strong for
n territorial insurance bureau, to be
administered on business lines, but de
signed to furnish compensation 'nr ur?
ancc at as low a rate ns possible to
those required to carry it. The board
does not believe that such territorial
board should exercise a monopoly of
this class of insurance, but that it
should serve rather as a chock, upon
(he independent companies.
Various other recommendations are
also to be made in the report soon to
go forward to the Governor. A'mong
these clearer definition of a laborer
entitled to compensation, should be
given in order to avoid disputes. Tne
fact that the $50 allowed by law for
surgical and hospital expense is often
entirely inadequate, as shown by ex
perience, will call for recommendation
Oppose Lump Settlements
The application oX an insurance
company to be allowed to settle a
claim for the death of a husband and
lather on a basis of seventy-five per
cent of the amount if paid through the
six-year period prescribed by the law,
was turned down by, the board. The
Case was one of those resulting from
the railroad wreck on the Kaeleku
Sugar Company plantation at Vz
last June. The board held that where
children were shares in the' compensa
tion that unless good reasons were
shown for other action, lump sum
settlements should not.be permitted.
All of the members of the board
were present at the meeting except
drorge Weight. The others wore
V. A. McKay, chairman, Will. J. Coop
er. Ceorge Freeland, and W. H. Field.
Mr. Freeland, who was appointed to
succeed W. L. Decoto, resigned, at

Murphy Still Hard
After McKay's Scalp
Will Appeal To Higher Courts On
Grounds District Magistrate Is Not
Citizen And For Other Reasons
Still eontend'ng that District Mag
istrate William A. McKay is in eligible
o hold the position he occupies, At
torney Eugene Murphy, on Tuesday
nlered a plea in abatement in con
nect '.on with the case of Harata et al
charged with gambling. Murphy
charges that McKay is not a citizen
of the United States, for the reason
that he was never legally naturalized;
and he further alleges that the distric t
magistrate is also not qualified be
cause he does not hold a license to
practice law in the Territory. An ap
peal was noted when Judge McKay
overruled the plea. '
Murphy attempted to block Mc
Kay's reappointment by making like
charges to Governor Pinkham, but the
new commission was issued last week

Pays Promptly Now
armer's Bureau Working On Busi
ness Lines Changes In Staff Made
Also Constructive Suggestions
Honolulu, January 22, 1917.
With the exception of two of the
argest, all consignors have been paid
in full for all goods sold by the Divi
sion, up to the end of December.
Ths is the first time that this has
been possible in three years, and it is
only possible now through funds priv
ately advanced. This emphasizes the
fact that the Division needs a cash
fund out of which to make payments
to farmers as soon as their goods are
sold. The restrictvons on the present
Territorial Revolving Fund prevent
the use of the money for such purpos
es. Ftom now on, however, the pros
pects are bright that the Division will
he able to pay off its consignors
promptly by the fifteenth of the month
following the sale of their produce.
One of the greatest drawbacks to the
TVvision, has been slowness in making
returns to consignors. Now that this
has been overcome it Is hoped that
all farmers who have not been ship
ping because of slow returns, will
start slipping again.
In spite of the handicaps the Div
ision has been working under, tne
sales have been increasing regularly,
and with the present facilities, the
market can handle a much larger
quantity of produce than is at present
being received. With a greater var
iety of produce on hand for sale, the
easier it is to sell, and the more mo
ney for the consignor.
If you have produce for sale, write
the Division about it before selling it
elsewhere. There have been some
changes made in the staff of the Div
ision which, it is expected, will in
crease Its efficiency, and that consign
ors will receive better service.
The Division extends an invitation
to all producers who are interested
in getting more money lor their crops
and livestock, and to all consumer--
who vish to decrease the cost of liv
ing to call at the Division to see what
is being done for the small farmer in
Now that the Division is starting
out a new year, suggestions and con
structive criticism from consignors,
and others who are interested in the
welfare of the Division, will be gladly
received by the Superintendent.

Maui Man Is Again
Bomb Plot Witness
Herbert Wade, Principal Of Pauwela
School Identifies Men Suspected Of
San Francisco Outrage
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Jan. 20.
Herbert Wade of Hawaii was a wit
ness here today in the trial of Thomas
J. Mooa', alleged ringleader of five
suspected bomb-plotters charged with
the murder of the victims of the "pre
paredness day" bomb here last July.
Wade identified Warren K. Billings
as the man entering a dental ollice
prior to the explosion and asking per
mission to go to the roof.
Mr Wade, who Is a principal of the
Pauwela school, went to San Francis
co last September to testify in the
trial of Billings. Billings was the first
of the suspects to be tried, and was
convicted and given life imprison
ment. The prosecution in the Mooney
case is trying to show that Billings
was carrying the mysterious suitcase
near the scene just prior to the ex
plosion. Bertram Aiken Home
Spent Many Months On Mexican Bor

Springing a complete surprise on
his parents, Bertram Aiken, son of Mr.
and Mrs. V. O. Aiken, of Makawao,
who was supposed to be with a na
tional guard company on the Mexican
border, arrived home last week un
announced. Young Aiken left his school
in Indiana shortly after the call for
troops last spring, and took a very
full course of soldiering among cactus
and mesquit "in Texas, down by the
Getting his discharge a few weeks
ago, he went back to Indiana but
found he could not re-enter until next
term, so he decided to head for home.
He sent no announcement of his plan,
and thus treated his family and
friends to a great surprise on his ar
rival. He says his army experience
has been quite enough for a few
weeks, at least. It has been three
years since he has been in the Islands.
Three Paia Men Held
On Dynamiting Charge
Manuel Carreira, Philipili, and Ben
Kahalo, all residents of Paia, were ar
rested last Sunday by Police Captain
Joe Morris and Officer Jack Hanamai
kai on charge of dynamiting fish. '-The
cahe will, be tried in the Makawio
district court today. The officers
claim to caught the-men with fish in
their possession and to have secured
a quantity of dynamite where they
had hastily hidden it in the sand when
the officers approached.
DOESN'T WANT RURAL
Editor Maui News,
Dear Sir: I wish to call your at
tention to the fact that the people
that are circulating the petition for
the rural route. They have been
circulating the petition since October
and have been unable to get enough
names. Now they are going around
telling the people that it is for the
reopening of the Tauwela postofiice;
that Mr. A. F. Tivirous sent them a-
round wilh request for them to sign.
They fooled several Japs and a numb
er of Portuguese. Some Porto Iticans
could not read or write they put down
their names wi'hout their consent
If that is the way we have to do what
we want I think we would be better
off without it. The postmaster at
Honolulu will surely know this and
also the postmaster-general In Wiish
ington. If you wish to publish this
do so. I hope you will have plenty

officers tor the ensuing year, as fol
lows: Dr. W. D. Ualdwin, president ;
Dan T. Carey, vice-president; V. F.

equally between the three troops part
icipating in the Fair. Tins money
will be used to buy troop equipment.
Rowland Ii. Dodge was elected a
member of the council for the year.
This group of men, comprising nearly
every business and profession in the
community, took a keen interest in
the report of the officers and express
ed a desire to see the lioy Scout move

Following Is the text of the annual
report submuted by Commissioner
To the members of the Maui Council:
Judged by the standards of numbers
one could hardly call the past year
successful in scouting for there are
less boys enrolled now than at the
beginning of the year. No boy is n
gulurly enrolled as a scout in full
standing unless his name is register
ed in National Headquarters in New
York. Judged from the standard of
efficiency, however, we may feel that
scouting has improved, although it lias
much remaining that should be done
luree troops are registered compris
ing about sixty boys. These boys are
progressively improving in scoutship
or they are dropped from the tanks
