Fame has only the span of a day but to live in the
hearts of a people, that is worth something. "Ouida,"
Tin- mil Issue before the people today Is whether Hip taxpay

(or roads and get n political machine. Advertiser.
Assumina that such is the case the people are now getting
a political machine that is neither giving them the roads
they pay for nor a political machine of the character they
Whether the roads shall be built by contract or not is en
tirely beside the mark in so far as the Supervisors' control
of the road department is concerned.
- The situation today in the road department is an exact
duplicate of a year ago when a Democratic road supervisor
.marshalled the road laborers in a political parade and out
' raged the community sense of political decency by flaunting
the use of public patronage for partizan purposes before the
people and practically asking what they were going to do
What the people did do about it was, to vote Republican
Supervisors into power and Republican Legislators into pow
er, and the latter gave the Supervisors the authority to as
, sume complete control over the public offices and public
work for which they are and should be held responsible.
' Republican Supervisors would be absolutely false to. their
trust if they failed to draft and pass the ordinance neces
sary for them to take control of the road department.
f Under the present system they are sitting around like
"bumps on a log" while a Democratic road supervisor un
der the direction of. the Democratic partizan ring that sur
rounds the mayor, does just exactly what suits the welfare
of the Democratic party.
" That's all there is to it.
Protection of that patronage was all that put fire into the
. veto message that voiced the sentiments of the mayor and his
i All 'that remains is for the Supervisors to center the re
ft sponsibility for the road department where it belongs, where
ftthe people voted that it should be, and do so promptly.
After that is done, the people will then be in a position to

PUT CORREA IN DEBT
That the Overland automobile which
Correa won an the first prize In the
contest cost him close to 12000, consid
erably more than the machine was
worth and enough to plunge him Into
debt. Is the report that Coriea's friends
generally agree upon. Just vhether he
went Into debt heavily or not has not
been ascertained. I has been learned
that he eves 1400, but this sum Is not
largo enough, It was stated this morn
ing, to have unsettled his mind, as his
credit Mould have been good enough to
havo raised a loan larger than this.
Correa was awarded the automobllo
on the night of July 3, when tlm-counl
wai made. Ha had rolled up a total of
1 65,369 votes, more than twice as many
as any omer contestant, and the weeks
of work that preceded this had been
strenuous ones for htm, physically and
Following tho award of the machine,
Correa almost Immediately tried to sell
It, It bus been learned on good au
thority that the highest offer he re
ceived was 800, and he refused this.
He had some troubla In running the
auto, several times getting It to a point
where he could not operate It, largely
from Inck of skill. Ho hud tried des
perately to sell It, but without any
offer thnt promised to repay him for
the money he had spent In winning It.
There In good ground for hellevlng
thnt Corri had private debts that he
hnd Incurred In winning the mnchlne,
nnd of which he had said nothing. These
nre supposed to have preyed on his
DID GOOD WORK FOR .
Sr. A, de Kouza Cnnavnrro, consul
general for Portugal, snld today that
Correa had been under a strnln for the
past few weeks, but aside from this
knew of no reason for the deed.
"lie was a bright and efficient man,"
sold the consul, "Ho had acted as my
secretary often, though holding no olll
clal position, and his work has always
been kept up In good shape. He has
no ofllclal connection with the consul
ate, but has done much clerical work
nnd used to call himself my secretary
Correa Is a member of tho Ban An
tonio Society and of the local branch of
Foresters, and both of these will be
represented at the funeral tomorrow
Provided his accounts wore clear with
the San Antonio Society, his widow
will receive $1600.
ALL STRAIGHT WITH
Correa's dealings with the Honolulu
Amusement Company, through which
he uon the machine, have been
straightforward, and the theatrical poo
pie are Ignorant of any reason for the
suicide. J, II. Magoon, general man
ogor of the company, said today:
'I regret tho occurrenco very much.
Correa has been an upright and honest
young man. He never owed us any
money, and as far as the automobile
contest Is concerned, he has done his
part well and creditably. The machine
which he won In tho contest Is worth
today about $1600, and It he had not
taken his life he could have made
money from It. He was a bright and
wide-awake young man."
EMPLOYER KNOWS OF
NO DISHONEST ACT
Carl du Rot, manager of II. P.
Elders & Co , Is now Investigating Cor
rea's accounts to discover If there Is
any shortage or Irregularity In the use
of funds that would furnish a reason
for tho young cashier's suicide. He
ttattU this morning that so far ho has
found nothing to Indicate dishonesty on
Correa's part, that the man had been
an efficient and faithful employe and
that he knew of no motive for Belf
destructlon. He said this morning:
"So far as'I know, Mr. Correa has
been a faithful worker. His accounts
up to the present time have been
straight. But his death Is a great sur
prise to me, and I will have to look
Into the matter more thoroughly bo
foro I can say anything definite."
HAD AUTO SHORT TIME
BUT RAN UP BIG BILL
Although Correa has had his machine
le.ii than half a month, he had In
curred expenses through using It
amounting to about tlOO, according to
a statement made today at the von
Hamm-Young Compnny's garage, where
the Overland has been kept.
Correa put the machine Into tho ga
rage on July 4, the vday on which It
was turned over to him by the Hono
lulu Amusement Company, and In the
next eight or nine days ran up an ex
penfco bill of ubout 1100. It has been
In the garage'for two days without be
ing taken out, it was stated this morn
ing. HOME LIFE OF YOUNG
MAN ALWAYS HAPPY
Correa camo to Honolulu three years
ago In an Immigrant ship from Ma
deira. His ability In a clerkal way and
his quick mastery of the English lan
guage were pronounced and were rec
ognized by his employers.
He was married something over a
year ago to Miss Joanna Haneberg, and
a baby girl Is the result of the union
His home life has always been happy,
and no cause exists there for the sui
cide, It U stated by his friends.
PROOF OF GRAFTING
"The first fruit from a grafted alli
gator pear," remarked Mr, Gerrlt I.
Wilder as he dropped In at the Bul
letin office this morning and placed
on the desk a magnificent alligator
"That Is the first fruit I have pick
ed from a graft made sometime ago
and It la the first I have seen on ex
hibition. The fruit Is a graft from
what we call the Esbank pear, and It
Is true to the parent tree. Aa you
all know these pears do not hold true
if taken from the seed. The graft,
however, Is always a certainty."

LAND OF PUUPUEO
Since we beqan selling lota in this land we have learned a
thing or twot
k First That the real deiiand is for medlunvslie house lots;
and In accordance with our suggestion the owner has subdivided
the two large lets Into twelve smaller ones, containing from 18,
000 to 20,000 square feet Still good-sized lotal
Second That the lots in this land come pretty near selling
themselves. The reason? Because the lots are not remnants nor
undesirables left over after the pick, but are the real choice lo

wero two qulto severe earthquake
shocks felt on Maul at about 11:30
o'clock this morning. Its direction be-
Ing from east to west. Tho first
shock wus quite heavy and lasted,
about ten seconds. The second
shock followed in quick succession
and lusted for about the same dura
tion of time, and perhaps longer, hut
those In the now Walluku court house
and the County Building at tho tlmo
did not care to wait until tho second
shock hud died out, for tho solid
building of reinforced concrete seem
ed to shnko from Its very founda
tion and appeared to Bway to and fro.
Tho occupants inn outside post haste
and from tho outside watched for fur
ther demonstrations, but luckily the
buildings stood the test as well as
other buildings of similar character In
Wulluku. The new Church of the
Good Shepherd stood the test nobly;
as also did tho now Walluku Union
Church under course of construction.
Many of those In wooden frame
buildings oven flow outside In ulmoHt
double quick time. It is many years
now since Maul was visited by such
severe earthquake shocks.
