It is stated, in connection with
the matter, that there is not the
slightest objection to the way the
affairs of the local posloffice have
been conducted in fact it has
been one of the most successfully
and satisfactorily managed offices
in the Territory; nor, it is declar
ed, is it a matter of politics.
The reason assigned for making
the change, it is claimed, is a rule
of the present postofficc authorities
at Washington that at postmaster
must confine himself exclusively
to the posloffice billet. It is point
ed out, for instance, that D. C.
Lindsay was removed from the
office of postmaster at Paia, Maui,
solely for the reason that he had
other employment, being cashier
of the Baldwin Bank, at Kahului.
Mr. Travers, postmaster at Wei pa
lm, Oahu, it is further stated, was
asked to resign for the reason that
he, too,('was otherwise employed,
being bookkeeper for Oahu Sugar
The information received goes
on to sav that Mr. Crawford would
have been asked for his resigna
tion before now for the same rea
son were it not for the fact that his
term of office expires so soon.
It is added that the person to
succeed Mr. Crawford here has the
endorsement of 'the Kauai Demo-'
cratic Committee a ltd the Territb-
rial Democratic Committee. The
Kauai Democratic Committee' i s
