"I wish you would boom tbo

It waB Geo. L. Hons tho attor
ney who brought a Bulletin re
porter up standing with this re
mark. That a citizen of any town
but Uilo should have tho suspicion
of a kick coming against the gov
ornmont waa tho newoat fact met
yesterday aftornoon nftor the
paper bad gono to press.
"Tho legislature appropriated
$30,000 for wator works at Wai
luku, and the money is available.
Tbo people noed tho water. There
is a provision in tbo bill that tho
government may condemn water
for tbo purpose.
"Not only for ordinary domestio
ubo, but for sanitary reasons, tbo
Wailuku peoplo should bosupplied
with water. Tbo plantation is
bucking agninst the wator works,
bocauso it doesn't want to see the
water taken down to Eahului.
Yos, tbo systom would include
Eahului as well as Wailuku.

the money was not avtilabla. The
raonoy is availablo now W O.
Smith told me so tbo otbor day.
"Maui has always been modost
in its doraands, not only in asking
for appropriations but for their
expenditure. At tbo timo of last
legislature tbero was a public
meeting, whon a lot of radicals
wanted largo appropriations for
this, that and the other thing.
But tboio woro enough of us con
servative peoplo to prevent tuch
extravagant requoats, Ono thing
was an appropriation for $100,000
for a road to Haleakala. Wo con

wo showed the legislature that wo
wero reasonable, we euouid got
what wo aotuallv needed.

the money for that purpose. Tbo
