There was little delay by the
Hoard of Supervisors iti getting
started. Chairman Moir and Su
pervisors l)csha, Fernandez, Ship
man, Mnkuaknne and Kalaiwaa
occupied the new desks in the
Hoard Rooms in the County offices
on Bridge street. Supervisor
Woods of Kohala was absent. The
seats 'of the several members were
formed into a hollow square, simi
lar to a legislative chamber, with
Chairman Moir presiding atone end,
and Clerk Pua and an interpreter
on cither side.
Under the head of petitions and
memorials, Supervisor Shipraan in
troduced a petition of 115 taxpayers
of South Kona recommending the
appointment of David K. Uaker,
the present deputy sheriff1, as road
supervisor. Jacob I.. Coerper, of
Kailua, made application for road
supervisor for North Kona, which
was supported by two pctitjons of
85 signers ot the district. He also
presented a communication from
Joe Gouvea, Jr., secretary of the
Kona Independent Club protcstiiiK
against the appointment of Kaele
makule as road supervisor and re
commending the appointment ol

petition of 118 signers for the same

petition of 156 names in behalf of
II. P. Nalimu as watchman for

ceed Win. K. Ragsdalc. County
Clerk Pua reported that he had
appointed John Kai, Jr., as an as
sistant in his office.
Deputy Sheriff, David K. Baker
of South Kona wrote that he had
disallowed the bills of John Macha-
da and Oliwa for telephones, not
recognizing their appointment as
police officers: He also recom
mended that the telephone at the
residence of the late Mr. Buchholtz
be removed to J. Holi's store or to
D. K. Kaauaaua's house. Mana
ger t. S. Aungust, of the Kona
Telephone Co. put in a written
claim f r the rental of these tele
phones. Deputy Sheriff W. A. Fetter re
turned the police commission of J.
Kailau, policeman, who claimed the
Board had no right to make ap
pointments. J. N. Koomoa; cap
tain of police at Kailua, wrote say
ing that the police officers in Kona
wanted to know wheie they stood.
Policeman J. K. I.ekepali of Wai
mea made a similar inquiry. Po

expressed his doubts as to the right
of the Board to appoint, and stating
that he would not take the oath
under the commission sent him.
Wilinot Vredenberg, manager of
the Puako Sugar Co., asked that
an appropriation of $300 to $.100
per month for the construction of a
road between Kawaihaeand Puako.
He said that he had 110 "pull," and
that during the five years that the
Puako Plantation had been in ex-,
isteuce, the Government has not
expended $20 for clearing the trails
of algeroba trees and rocks.

The Executive Committee of the
South Kohala Republican Precitict
Club endorsed James Stevens as a
police officer for that precinct.
A petition of 77 signers from
residents of Kaiwiki, asking for a
change of location of the Kaiwiki
homestead road, so as to avoid a
very difficult hill, was referred to
the Committee on Internal Im
provements. James Burgess of North Kona
and J. Harbottlc at Keahou applied
for appointment as poundmasters
for their respective districts.
Among the reports received was
one from Norman K. Lyman, road
supervisor for the South Hilo Dis
trict. He stated that he had found
it necessary to entirely renovate
and whitewash the department
stables and stableman's cottage, and
had taken measures to economize
on the feed by planting grass nnd
sorghum adjoining the stables.
Street swetpings and stable manure,
he was able to dispose of to the
Volcano Stables at $1 per ton, and
they had hauled away twelve tons
at that rate. ,
The piece of road by the Hilo
Railroad depot, niakai of Hack
feld's, had been completed and
rolled, and oiled with oil furnished
by the superintendent of the Hilo
Railroad Co., as their donation to
thfi county. The Volcano road has
been cleared of the guava bushes
from the Hilo side to the Puna
boundary at a cost of $41 for labor.
He stated that he had expended
the sum of $383 for surface repairs
to the roads in Hilo and vicinity,
as it was very important to have all
the various ditches, etc.. onened.
so that the water could be drained
from the streets wherever it was
possible to do so. A greater part
of some of the roads have no ditches
for the water during rainy weather.
The upper portion of the Piiho
nita road is beyond small repairs
and needs to be reconstructed, as
the center of the road is a ditch.
The Volcano road to the Puna
boundary is in a very bad condi
tion, full of chuck holes and the
road washed out in various places
only leaving the road bed.
Kaumana road is in fairly good

Kaiwiki road is beyond redemp
tion for repairs, as it has been com

remains is the large rocks and
holes, and owing to the various re
quests from the residents in that
district he had sent two dump carts
with a few gravel men to fill up the
worst holes. Running across the
road in various places were cane
flumes which arc not water tight
or not large enough to hold the
overflow, and the water is destroy
