bond was approved.
Desha moved that the bond of R.

This bond was fixed at 520,000 and
Mr Lyman submitted bond for
that amount with J. S. Cauario
and John Baker as sureties. The
same rule was applied in calling iu
the sureties for examination. John
Baker stated under oath that he
was able to stand for the Trcsurer's
bond of $20,000 in addition to his
undertaking with the Surveyor.
Mr. Cauario the other surety could
not be found at the moment, so fi

other four members attired in white
duck suits filed into the room and
were greeted with clapping of
hands. They were Eugene Lyman,
Makekau, Lalakea and Ealau.
They were accompanied by Clerk
Norman K. Lyman and County
Attorney John U. Smith. They
took seats at the tables prepared
for them within the railing and im
mediately got down to business.
Eugene Lyman was made chairman
of the Board aud on taking his seat
expressed his appreciation of the
honor and promised to impartially
direct the business of the Board so
far as it was in his power. He also
thanked the people at large for
electing him to the responsible posi
tion and assured all that his best
efforts would be given to further
the interests of the people of East
Hawaii and the business of the
county. He then called upon
Supervisor Desha to open the for

proved. The Board then approved
the bond of Nathan Willfong as
County Auditor, and the bond of
John U. Smith as District Attorney
for the County of East Hawaii.
The consideration of the bonds of
other officers was postponed to the
meeting of the Board Monday after
noon at 3 o'clock.
Makekau's motion to proceed to
the appointment of Road Super
visors was the first proposition to
meet with opposition. Desha op
posed appointing Road Supervisors
on the ground that there was no
money in the treasury and that it
would be economy to save the sal
aries of these officials to the county.
On a vote the motion was defeated.
The Board then adjourned to meet

At 3 o'clock Monday the Board
met in the court room of the Hilo

first session. The approach to the
seat of government was virtually
blocked by the eager men who were
auxious to see the machinery of
local government in its first opera

had been accustomed to local gov

lands there was the feeling that at

in East Hawaii,.
The Board then proceeded to the
appointnif-.ut of Road Supervisor
and Superintendent of the Hilo Wa
tcr Works. The first three ap
pointments made, served to disprove
all charges that the Hawaiian
Board would draw the race line or
confine themselves within party
lines. The first man appointed
was Wm. Vanatta, Superintendent
of the Hilo Water Works. Mr.
Vanatta has been a life long Re
publican and is yet. His appoint
ment was in line with the policy
proclaimed by the leaders of the
Board the best men for public of
fice regardless of politics or race.
The second appointment was that
of Joe Vierra, Supervisor of roads
for South Hilo. Mr. Vierra is a
Republican and was a candidate
for Supervisor of this county at the
last election. His appointment
was the olive branch of peace and
good faith to men iu all parties.

a Republican but also a plantation '
