t An interesting and disputatious
i argument held forth at the meeting
of the Board of Supervisors Tues
day afternoon when the consider
ation of Sheriff Keolauui's bond
came up. The various theories
propounded came to naught, how
ever, because in the midst of the
discussion Mr. Kcdlanui stepped in
and asked permission of the Board
to withdraw his bond and file an
other later in its stead. This re
quest was complied with at once.

Monday. It was in the form pre
scribed by the County Act and dif
fers from others only in the number
of sureties and in the fact that each
surety signed for a specific amount,
the aggregate of all the sureties
amounting to $10,000. The sign
ers and the amounts opposite their
names were: Daniel Kaihcnui, $2,
500; H. B. Kukona, $1,500; J. Ke
liipulcolc, $t,ooo; Henry West,
$500; Simon Kahana, $500; Jos.
Maka, $1,000; Kalatii Kaiakoili,
$1,000; H. B. Nailima, $2,000.
When this bond appeared Mon
day it was referred to J. U. Smith,
District Attorney, for a legal opin
ion. Tuesday the District Attor
ney filed the following opinion:
To the Honorable Board of Super
visors, County of East Hawaii,
Territory of Hawaii.
Sirs: In examining the bond of
Wm. M. Keolanui, Sheriff, I find
it made after the form recommend
ed in the County Act, except, that
each of the eight sureties, justifies
in a definite amount, aggregating
however, $10,000, the amount of
From the terms of the County
Act, permitting any number of
sureties, (more than one) on an offi
cial bond. The language of Sec. 59,
requiring each surety to justify "in
the amount of his undertaking"
and the fact, that each surety is
jointly and severally liable in any
event for the full amount of the
bond, and from the fact, that the
purpose of any official bond is main
ly to safe guard the funds and other
governmental affairs of the county
and its citizens to the extent of the
undertaking of the principal, I am
of the opinion that the bond of any
officer, with any number of sureties,
more than one, who justify, in the
aggregate, the amount of the bond
required by such officer, will be
and is a sufficient bond and should
be approved by the Board of Su
pervisors; provided, said sureties
are worthy of credit to the amount
of their undertaking, and of good
personal standing 111 the communi
ty. JOHN U. SMITH,
Supervisors Desha and Makekau,
neither seemed to like the bond
and wanted further light. Make
kau wanted to send it to the At
torney General of the Territory for
an opinion and Desha wanted it
returned to the Sheriff elect with
instructions to file a new bond in
conformity with the law. Mr. De
sha reminded his confreres that
they were elected to carry out the
law in its proper form, and said to
approve the bond would be con
trary to their lawful duty and in
consistent with action taken on
other bonds. He wanted to know
where the .Supervisors would
stand in case of the death of one of
these bondsmen. He believed
that all good thinking people would
consider the bond not according to
law. He therefore moved that it
be tabled and that the Sheriff be re
quired to give a new and proper
bond. He said in closing that he
believed the approval of such a
bond would be an invitation for the
Grand Jury to investigate the con
duct of the Board.
Makekau said that he could not
say whether the bond satisfied the
law or did not, but that the Board
j should rely on the advice of the
District Attorney. He helieved
however that the sureties 011 the
bond should be called before the
Board and required to show under
oath that they were worth twiccMhe
amount of the sum for which they
signed. In other words, he said he
believed the bond should be doubled.
District Attorney Smith then
stated that the Board could not
double the amount of the bond. If
the members were not satisfied
with the sureties, it was their duty
to call them in and examine them
under oath. It might be found
that each individual was worth
double the amount he had signed
ior. He said sureties should be
made to show where their property
Vfas, its nature, and their income
At this juncture the bond was
withdrawn by the sheriff-elect.

A Cough is Not a Diskask, but
a symptom. It indicates that the
lungs and bronchial, tubes are in-1
flamed. This inflammation often
leads to pneumonia. The surest
