Kauai and Maui, usually- care

iiroprintions made by the legisla
ture of I9U for the collection of
taxes of the Territory.
Oahu litis not gone back so very
much, b u t unfortunate Hawaii
county is once, more in the lime
light and the collections of taxes,
up to the close of-the past biennial
period, which closed June 30, this
year, runs over a thousand dollars

school taxes on West Hawaii,
particularly in the Kona districts,

hundred poll taxes, amounting to
some thousands of dollars.
The balmy climate of the Kona
seems not to be conducive to the
payment of the five dollars' head
tax. James Ako is trying to Ret
his clientele to lose the feeling by
bringing assumpsit s'lits and he
has already prepared sixty-three
