In reply to your letter of Novem
ber 23rd, Mr. E. R. Thomas is still
very much inteiestcd in our concern.
He is a member of the board of di
rectors, and still has a large interest
in the concern. When Mr, Hugh
Chalmers bought a certain amount of
Mr. Thomas' stock he became presi
dent of this concern. Mr. Chalmers
was Vice-President and General Man
ager of the National Cash Register
Company for a number of years, and
on account of being so well known
he was made President of the E. R.
Thomas-Detroit Company, and conse
cmently the name was changed, and
the car named after Mr. Chalmers on
account of his standing throughout
the country. This was positively the
only change that was made in the
organization, except such changes as
Mr. Chalmers made to improve the
organization. The Chalmers-Detroit
l'orty of today is the same car that
has besn built for the last two jcars,
and which was called the Thomas
IC-H ( Sales Manager.
"The only man who doesn't praise the Chalmers "30" is a
man who doesn't own one.

"I hereby resign as a member of
tlio Hoard ot Supenlsura ut tho
County of Onhu from tho District ot
Honolulu, such leslgtiutlou to take
t'flect Immediately as ot this date."
Thin was the text ot a letter ot
resignation with which Mayor-elect
Tern electrified his fellow-members
ot tho Hoard ut Supervisors nt their
meeting last night. It was nn ubso
lutu surprise, nnd the County fath
U8 sat up In wonder far n moment.
"I am Borry to seo that," said Hus
tnce, "as we have not tho time to 1111
"I luio to resign so as to ho nh'e
to 1111 my new ofllco us Major," said
Tern. "My Idea Is that under tho
Inw no man can hold two Govern
ment offices nt one time, nnd as I
luno to make appointments before.

Considerable talk as to the legal
phase of the matter followed, but fin
ally, on tho advice ot tho County At
torney, who stated that no action on
the part of tho Hoard was necessary,
the resignation was lecctved and
placed on file.
Prior to this Incident, which tol
place toward the end of the meeting,
tho Hoard hnd indulged in a touch
ing little loe-feast, its Impending
dissolution hclng the occasion there
"Tonight being our last regular
meeting," said Hustace, "we will not
take-up the master ot estimates for
tho coming month. As tho former
Hoard did not do that for us, I think
It would ho an Infringement ot the
rights ot the next one.
"I would like to make a showing
as to the financial condition of tho
County. I don't think the people ut
this County bao any Idea ot the
amount of monoy that goes through
the hands ot tho Hoard of Supervi
sors? Wc lmo handled about $1,-
044,000 In two jears. A man I talk
ed to the other day laughed when I
told him it would he over a million.
Tho people ot this community should
attend tho meetings ot the Uoaid
and find out what Is being done. Wo
have been In ofllco twenty-four
months. Tho former Hoard was In
about eighteen months,
"I want to thank every member of
this Hoard for the support they lme
yhen me, and also to thank the
heads ot departments and tho cler'is.
"Tho County Is safe. Wo hao
done our duty. Oahu has not been
wrecked. Tho County Is hero to stay.
If It is handled as well in the futuie
there will bo no occasion for any
government by commission."
iDwIght introduced and Fern sec
onded the following resolution,
which was read:
"Whereas, tho second term ot
County Government on tho Island ot
Oahu. Territory of Hawaii, is now
drawing to Its termination and Is
about to bo succeeded by the City
and County of Honolulu; and,
"Whereas, tho members constitut
ing the present Hoard of Supervisors
nro deslious (if expressing their ap
preciation of the nblo nnd zealous
administration of Mr. Charles Ilus
t.ue Jr. ns chairman of this Hoard;
now, tlieiefore, be It
"Hcsohod, That we, the members
of the Hoard of Supervlsois of tho
County of Oahu, thoroughly uppie
editing the valuable services, eourto
ty, and executive ability of our
dial! man, Mr. Charles Hustace Jr.,
do heieby extend to him our sincere
thanks for the able, efficient, and
courteous manner In which bo has
perfoi mod tho duties of cxecutha
head of this boa id, and extend to
blni our best wishes for his success
and happiness In the futuro aflalis
of his life.
"Ho It further Kesohed, That
these resolutions he spread upon tho
minutes ot tho Hoard lit, recognition
Hustace nnswercd in n neat speech,
in which ho again referred to tho
success of the County administration.
"It mny sound conceited," ho said,
"but I think tho affairs ut tho Coun
ty lmo been managed ns well ns
those of tho Territorial Government.

I say this from the bottom ot my
This was followed by speeches by
tho rest nt tho members ot the
Hoard, whereupon tho department
heads who were present, wero called
upon for remnrkB.
"I, mjself, and the rest ot the de
partment heads whom I have talked
with, feel regret at tho expiration ot
tho term of tho present members ut
tho Hoard," said County Attorney
Cathcart. "I want to thunk nil tho
members. I have hnd my difficulties
with them, hut we have had our open
fights, and they are past and gone.
My department has been benefited by
the administration ot tho present
Hoard. When It went in we had only
n few books, hut now wo hnvo gotten
a good working library.
"Tho community does not appre
ciate the work done by tho Hoard ut
Supervlsois. I do not believe that
there is a Hoard In the wholo United
States which can show a better rec
ord for efficiency and economy, nnd
the record has not been equaled by
tho Territorial Government when It
had charge of tbeso affairs. When
people talk aboubCounty government
not being a success, It Is because they
are Ignorant. Undoubtedly this suc
cess is duo to tho Chairman's finan
cial administration, but ho could nut
have carried this out without tho
support of tho members ot tho Hoard
nnd to them, also, credit redounds.'
