not long to wait before the effects were
apparent and tho more Intoxicated they

PETITION to BE MADE
FOR REDUCTION OF RATES
Anticipate Water System Will
Presented to Town When
The Municipality Is
Wailuku, July 21. Tho kickers
against the present schedule of water
rates In this town'ljro Increasing every
day. They claim that tho rates should
bo lower as ovcry lot In this town Is en
tiled to water rights, and theio is no
necessity for tho extra charges for wn
tcrlng nnimnls and Irrigating ganlcnj,
as all tho water required for thoBo pur
poses could be obtained from tho pres
ent ditches (lowing through each lot
Some oven go to the extent nnd claim
that the water pipes which cost the go-
crnment nearly $30,000 should bo pre
sented to the citizens ot Wailuku, and
that the charges for water pipes should
bo not more than what Is actually re
quired for meeting running expenses
such as salary of superlntendi'nc, etc.
In fact, they claim that tho citizens of
Kahulul should be taxed more for wa
ter because they hao no water right,
nnd that tho latter will get their wa
ter from Wailuku through tho new sys
tem only under tho present possessors
of water rights.
Somo o I our citizens seo no rea
son or justice In our water rutes bcins
madctho same as Honolulu rates,
for very few people, If any own water
lights tallonoluluand aro furnished wa
ter by the government at great expense
through tho government mains and
likewise by means ot expensive pump
ing plants, which luxuries will not bo
required in Wnlluku, for there la al
ways a plentiful supply of mountain
wnter from Ino valley stream.
Thes are Bomo of tho burning qucs-
tlons that aro worrying the minds of j
our public spirited citizens. They1
nrguo that our present wntr system '
has been tho first real public improve
ment that Wailuku ever enjojeil for a
number of ycurs past, nnd that the pal
try appropriation ot (30,000 fulls Into
Instgnillcnnco when compared with tho
several hundred thousands of dollars
from Maul taxes that lmvo been turned
Into tho government treasury, part of
which went for paying the sewerage
system ot Honolulu.
Judgo Kalua, Oeo. Hone, Jno. T. AI11
li, W. T. ItoblnBon nnd many others
are firm In their belief that the rates
are cxhorhltant, unjust and should be
reduced. In fact Mr. lions has already
signified his Intention ot taking a peti
tion around to protest to the govern
ment against establishing permanently
tho published rates.
Tho leading citizens ot Wailuku ex
pect tho present wnter system to bo
given or presented to tho municipality
as soon as municipal latvs aro estab
lished, as there are men here who nre
tapnblo ot running our own affalis
when wo nru glu-ii that form of gov
ernment. Jus. T. Taylor has heard and was
present at some of tho spirited argu
ments advanced against the high rates
In Wullukti, but, ot course, Mr. Taylor
Is only an cinployo of tho Department
of Public Works, und would do uothlug
to ameliorate tho present conditions.
However, he ran lay before tho Hoard
the unitulmouH opinion of Wnlluku
citizens w ho declare (lie rates as un
just and unfair.
