Where Credit The Honolulu papers contain account of the capture
is Due. of . .Litinnese illicit distiller on Maui by J. Walter
Doyle and of his having taken the culprit to Honolulu.
We were not aware of any great credit lieing due an internal revenue
man for arresting the Jap after ixiliee oflioers Souza and Mitchell had
ferreted out the case, arrested the man and lodged him in jail secured
all the evidence and then notified the Honolulu authorities. I he ac
count! ignore the local police to whom great credit is due and give all
predit to Mr. Dovle who had nothing to do with the case further than to
receive the accused from the police three days after the arrest.
We U'lieve Mr. Dovle to be a very capable othcer hut in tins case no
credit whatever is due Mr. Doyle nor do we U'lieve he would claim it.
A Serious We understand that it is now the intention of the Board
Mistake. of Supervisors to build another story on the jail building
and use the same for county olliees. The idea is to centralize the county
otliecs and save rents. Both of these objects are worthy ones ana u we
thought the plan could U carried out successfully anil that no U'tter
plan could be adopted we would heartily approve the plan of the Uard
We do not however believe the plan can lie carried out successfully nor
have we heard of any one in Wailuku who is in favor of the same..
The Wailuku jail was constructed by the territorial officials for jail
purposes and the upper story was intended as office for the sheriff am
! i.iilor mid ns n room for the schooling of the police. Yt hen the
building was occupied by the county officials changes were made by whicl
a number of rooms were created ami utilized as unices for several oi tne
poiintv ofl'wi.ils but in suite of tin cramping put in force there was no
room for all of the various officers and room had to lie provided outside.
When the building was erected a small fire station was erected along
side of the building as a part of the structure. The general plan of the
building is such that to make a third story tit on this structure that was
never intended to lie but two can of course lie done but it will lie a
monument to the one serious mistake that the Board of 1909-1910 com
It is possible to make over little Willie's coat for father but if the latter
has a speck of pride he would not wear the re constructed garment in
public. The supervisors should carefully consider what they are doing
before giving their final consent to the permanent disfigurement of the
court house grounds that are to day the pride of every citizen of Maui
who has had the good fortune to see them. It has taken many years of
work for the citizens of Maui to get our jail und court house and get the
grounds in such excellent condition. They must not 1 permanently

tion of a count v building for office purposes could U erected there for
much less money than it will cost to erect a second story on the jail.
The estimated eost of a second story will probably lie in it less than
$7500. By the time the contractor is through with his work all of the
interior finish of the present olliees will be ruined, all of the officer
driven out and damage to the extent of another thousand or two done.
The Board of Supervisors are doing so much good work for the county
that we hesitate to criticise their work but in this instance we feel that a
most serious mistake is U-ing made that will lie regretted for all time to
