It was feared that thcie would be
some diiliculty in certain cases over
the election of Road Boards, from
the iact that they aie for taxation
districts instead of Repiesenlative
election districts. The only trouble
licaid of, however, is that in Noith
Kona el&cwbeie described. In view
of the laws governing the election
for the Legislature and that for the
Road Boaids, it Tould be a hasty
assumption to say that anybody con
cerned has blundered. The law
ct eating elective Road Boaids oiders
that ''the election shall in .ill respects
be cairicd on and proclamations
made as is now or may hereafter be
piovided for by the geneial election
laws of the kingdom." Again the
same law provides, that, "Whenever
more than one taxation district is in
cluded in any election district the
-voting for the members of the Road
Boards for such taxation districts
may be held in such voting place or
places within said election district as
the Minister of the Interior may
The condition just desciibcd and
provided for in the foiegoing quota
tion is the condition of the two
Konas in Hawaii. And the Minister
of the Interior by pioclamation de
signated the polling pluces for Road
Boards in North Kona and South
Kona. The polling places for Road
Board voters of North Kona were to
lie at the Kalaoa schoolhouse (first
precinct) and at the Ilolualoa church
(second precinct for the general elec
tion). Other things being piovided
foi, then, tiic Inspectors for the sec
ond precinct would have no light to
refuse voters from other precincts,
living in the taxation disti let of North
Kona, the privilege of voting for
Road Board. The polling place for
tlie South Kona Road Board was pro
claimed to be at I'opopiia schoolhouse
(third precinct for the general elec
tion). This fact will explain the
fact, elsewhere reported, of there
having been no ballots or list of can
didates for the Noith Kona Road
Board in tho thiid precinct. Had
there been a contest for Road Board
in South Kona, which it appears
there was not, doubtless there would
have been a list of candidates and
From the foregoing statement of
facts, tliciclore, the question is nar
rowed down to the point already
hinted ut, namely : Were other things
provided, in addition to the proclaim
ing and designating of polling pluces,
which would make it tho duty of the
Inspectors of cither the (list or sec
ond precincts of all Kona, at whose
fatations the Minister diiectcd the
voting for tho Noith Kona Road
Hoard to take piaco, to icceiveund
record the votes of residents of that
luxation district who might present
themselves? It lias been shown that
the election of Road Boards has to
bo conducted in all respects llko that
of the election of members of the
Legislature, with one exception im
matciial to the question herein dis
cussed. Well, one respect in which
the Legislature election is conducted
is that of a strict rcgisttation system.
The ucncial election law provides
most elaborately for the production
of authentic lists of oteis for Nobles
and representatives, and when all
is done such "corrected roll or list
shall be Ihe ollleial electoral roll or
voting list for such election and the
only authority for permitting any one
to vote at such election." This
seems to bind the Inspectors down
to their lists for all sorts of voters
including oven those for Road Board.
For how aie the Inspectors to know
whether a voter from outside of their
precinct belongs to this, that, or
another taxation district, so as to
entitle him to vote for Road Board?
A simple provision seems to be lack
ing in the Road Board law cither to
have furnished to Inspectors in such
cases a list of persons belonging to
other precincts, yet having their
polling place for Road Board
in this one ; or else authorize Inspec
tors of other precincts to certify
voters who cannot vote for Road
Board in such other precincts over
to the Inspectors in charge of the
polling place where they may vote
for Road Board as duly qualified
electors. The Kona trouble would
appear to be due to such an omission
in the law, but all the same a new
election should be hi order for the
Noith Kona Road Board. In the
case of a special election for the
Board alone, provisions could prob
ably be made to secure the privileges
of the hundred who lost them at the
general election. "
PROTEST FROM KONA.
What aie we going to do about it?
lleie in North Kona District over
one bundled properly registered
voters were not allowed to vote for
the Road Bo.ird. Surely jt was not
a conspiracy ! The Minister of Inte
rior ought to explain. Tho late elec
tion cannot be held a legal one. Are
we to have a new election, and better
olllcials put in charge? We ought
to. Apropos of the Board as elected
Nahale the Sheriff is all right.
The other two know how to make
roads or spend money about as well
as who? Why, a nobody. Further
in regard to J. K. Kcalaumkule. He
is post-master, Government land
rigent, agent for the homestead lots,
besides having been tax assessor for
the past two or three ye.ics. He has
quite enough of Government posi
tions, and should not be on the Road
Board. It was no surprise lie polled
the highest in his own neighborhood.
He certainly does not look after the
homesteads ; so far as lie is concerned
the law is a mere dead letter, neither
fencing nor other improvements be
ing done on seveial of the lots. The
above all speaks for itself. As to
his management of the loads during
the past few years, the roads tell
their own tale. It is surely great
folly to pay a man S I a month for
going over a mile or two of a bullock
trail, leading Ins mule or donkey,
mei ely to throw a loose rock out of
the way. Make passable roads ilrst;
then take care of them. So far as
Konn A k:ui is concerned the canto
niers will not work. Just how many
cantoniers aie paid H per month for
going over the tiails I do not know.
This I do Jcnow, the roads are no
better in general than they were ten
3'ears ago. No wonder Kona Akau
remains in an undeveloped' state.

CARD OF THANKS.
Mr. and Mrs. E. Ilait wisli to pub
licly thank those who kindly con
tributed flowers and otherwise as
sisted at the funeral of the late Mrs.
Tim WronK Committed on One linn
rtrcil Voters In Konn.
About one hundred voters in Kona,
Hawaii, were at the late election de
prived of their lawful privilege of
voting for the Road Board. The case
may bo better understood by the fol
lowing diagram :
NORTH AND SOUTU KONA SIXTH REr-
North Kona :.E to '. South Kona
Taxation : 8 .5 1 Taxation
and ; ; and
Road Board '.'s u '. Road Board
District, is . District.
The middle line shows the division
between North and South Kona. Tho
dotted lines show the outer limits of
the third precinct, as laid off for
Nobles and Representatives. It will
be seen that the precinct is made up
of part of North Kona taxation dis
trict and part of South Kona taxation
distiict. The law creating Road
Boards prescribes that one shall be
elected by each taxation district.
The polling places were, however, all
fixed for convenience in voting for
members of the Legislature, so that
as seen in the diagram the third pre
cinct is carved out of two Road Board
constituencies. There wcro neither
lists of candidates nor ballots for
Road Board provided at the polling
place of the third precinct. There
fore no votes for Road Boatd were
received there. Then, when North
Kona voters went over to the second
precinct to exercise their lawful priv
ilege, as "qualified voters" of tho
"taxation district," they were not al
lowed to show their noses over the
The South Kona voters of the pre
cinct had no interest in the matter.
There was no contest in South Kona,
as there were only three candidates.
In North Kona, on the contrary,
there was much electioneering with
attendant excitement. An intelli
gent correspondent in this issue
strongly criticises the elected Bqard,
and questions whether it is a legally
elected body. This expression of
opinion would indicate that a real
wrong lias been inflicted on tho dis
trict, by the dcpiivation of a hun
dred voters of their right to partici
pate in the election of the Road
THE SANDWICH ISLANDS.
On the map of the Pacific Ocean
tho Sandwich Islands look like little
dots, and yet they are a nation with
a Queen and are known to the world
as the Kingdom of Hawaii. As wo
understand it, those islands are a
paradise, and there Is nothing inap
propriate in their local name, "The
Paradise of tho Pacific." Every
once in a short period some newspa
per man annexes these islands to the
United States. We wish Hawaiians
would decide to. come into Uncle
Sam's fold ; we think ft would be
beneficial to them and to Uncle Sam
also. Hawaii could do well for itself
t it were represented in the Congress
of this country. If annexed thous
ands of Americans would make their
future home upon those beautiful isl
ands. The commerce and trade of
the islands would more than double)
and the inhabitants would get rich.
Some day they will fly the stars and
stripes and the sooner the better.
