"The Law Is Very Plain."
Speaking of the controversy between High Sheriff Henry and Sheriff
Keolanui over the custody of the Porto Rican boy, sentenced to the
Reform School and who was afterwards released from the Hilo jail by
Jailor Mabey under orders from Honolulu, County Attorney Williams
had the following to say: "I he law is very plain ou the subject, and
the High Sheriff made a very great error in ordering the prisoner re
leased. Neither myself nor my deputy Mr. Aluli have given a written
opinion on the subjeet,.as we have not been requested to do so by Sheriff
Keolanui. The bill for the transportation of the prisoner was turned
down by the Board of Supervisor, for the reason that they believed it
was a charge against the Territory.
"I am of the opinion that this action was entirely proper in the view
of the circumstances and of the law on the subject. The law which is
contained in Section 239 of the Revised Law of Hawaii is very plain and
provides that the High Sheriff or his deputies' shall have the 'custody
and safekeeping' of the children sentenced to the Reform School, 'until

Road Engineer Gere Let Out.
Growing out of the decision of Governor Carter to drop all load ap
propriations for the various islands, Road Hngiueer G. II. Gere of Hi'o
finds himself out of a job. During the visit of Supt. of Public Wotks
C. S Ilolloway to Hilo, that official as well as Mr. Gere received a wire
less message fiom HoiioIhIu explaining the reasons for dropping the
road engineers from the Territorial pay rolls. The rule applies not only
to Mr. Gere but to Road Engineers Hugh Howell of Maui, Chas. II.
Sweetzcr of Kauai and Sam Johnson of Honolulu. The orders were
general to stop all expenditures for roads under the Loan Fund, and the
salaries of all these officials were abruptly cut off. In the case of Howell,
it is believed there are some unfinished contracts on Maui to be looked
auer oy nun, winch will keep him employed for two or three
On Oahu, Sam Johnson has been appointed road supervisor
ivuinii, nngiuccr owectzer is now the county road supervisor.
It is not known whether the Board of Supervisors will take similar
action and employ Engineer Gere, although much of the work began by
the latter remains in an incomplete state, by reason of the suddenness of
the order from Honolulu cutting off his salary. Hngiueer Gere has been
making a tour of Hawaii with Superintendent Ilolloway, inspecting the
various public works conducted under Mr. Gere's supervision. Just
before departing last night for Kawaihae on the Manna Loa, Superin
tendent Ilolloway expressed his gratification at finding the nc.v roads up
to such a high standard, and complimented Mr. Gere on his efficiency
in the matter of supervision of the expenditure of the road moneys
Wireless Rates Are Increased.
Owing to the fact that the subsidy from the Government of $1,000 per
month appropriated by the legislature for the assistance of the Inter
Island Telegraph Company has stopped, the management have found it
necessary to increase the rates of toll from ten cents to fifteen cents per
word beginning from October 1st.
The legislature of 1003 appropriated the sum of Sr.nnn tier t11r.ml1 fnr
a period of two years as a subsidy for the support and maintenance of
the wireless service between the islands of the Hawaiian group. In re
turn for this mouthly payment, the wireless company agreed to transmit
free of charge all government messaires to and from ITniu.liiln T?.,fir
satisfaction has bzen given the government and the public, but upon the
ictuimutuuiuiuii oi uoveruor carter tne appropriation for the wireless
service was cut out by the last legislature. This leaves the company
dependent upon commercial messages transmitted over its lines and as
one of the considerations for the allowance of the subsidy was a reduc
tion in price to the general public, it has been found ner-pntv m in.
crease the rate to fifteen cents per word. This makes the minimum
charge $1.50 instead of $1.00 per message of ten words or less as here-
ed tife public, amrrf iris,lJaVilllViiShrffi'YiAllBcfia?lVclr',Ar5 "W.fitar. -
to pay for maintaining the service it may be necessary to still further in
crease the charges.
Superintendent C. S. Ilolloway, speaking of the advantages of the
wireless service, said: "The Public Works Department has found the
wireless invaluable in conducting the business of the office. When it
was absolutely necessary to communicate to outside districts and get a
reply before the arrival of the mails, we have found the wireless of great
service. There have been some delays iu transmission, but none of
great importance or for a long period. I think there has not been a day
passed when the department has not found it necessary to use the wire
less, and tho messages for the Public Works Department alone would
average $600 per month. Of course, I cannot say to what extent the
other departments use the service, but I believe the government has
been amply repaid for its monthly subsidy paid to the Ititer-Islaud Tele
Proposed Democratic-Home Rule Fusion.
There is an effort on foot to bring about a fusion of Democrats and
Home Rulers, and to this end a committee consisting of C. M. LeBlond,
J. T. Ryan and Charles Williams have drafted a statement embodying
the principles and objects of the local democratic party, which are print
ed iu the form of a circular letter. ' These are being circulated iu the
English and Hawaiian languages throughout the County, in the hope of
affecting a union of the two parties. A greater portion of the circular
is taken up with a declaration against the centralized form of government
of the Territory and mismanagement of public affairs under a republican
alministration. It is stated that "it requires time, patience and per
seveiauceto gain control of a government so long in the hands of its
chief beneficieries," but by a union of forces it is hoped this may be
accomplished. Much space is devoted to what is termed Piesideut
Roosevelt's homestead land policy and the recommendations of the,
Mitchell Commission, all of which the committee heartily endorse.
Continuing, the circular reads as follows:
Thus it plainly shows that an honest, energetic minority can compel
the majority to reform. By such honest and effective efforts the demo
crats win friends and will, undoubtedly, become the majority in a short
time. Then it can accomplish more and more iu behalf of the people.
It is more than likely that the results so accomplished induced our
Home Rule friends to join forces with us iu the late County election and
the result is further progress for which we feel grateful and we trust all
are well satisfied.
That would seem to cover
the case, but the law further provides that the High Sheriff or his depu- , . . , , . ,
ties shall 'defray all expenses attending the conveyance of such children.' I , You committee has examined the several platforms promulgated

In conclusion, your committee would respectfully recommend: That,
a similar informal meeting of Democrats and Home Rulers beheld at
Hilo during the first week of each month until otherwise ordered on
such date and at such time and place as may be agreed upon to report
progress and exchange views and information; and that a conference
committee of each party be appointed by the Chairman of each Central
Committee to especially represent each party in the proposed consolida
tion. All ot which is respcctlully submitted.
