That part of Waimea from the garage to the courthouse was under water, the water reaching a depth of about two feet. Just ns soon as tho liver was able to open up tho mouth of tho stream by washing out tho sand bar the waters receded. At no timo did the flood reach nnywhero the marks set by tho flood of 1921. No damage was dono by tho flood except that a deposit of silt was left by tho receding water that ncccsltatcd removing. Tho storm that caused tho flood seemed to hit tho west side of tho island harder than the east and onsiderablo more rain fell on tho west side, although it can bo said that tho east side received Its share. All the streams on tho east side have shown slight rises, but none have been high enough to cause any concern. JOHN NEIL INJURED BY FALL ON MAUI DECK John Nell, father of Mrs. R. D.

T, Barclay, deputy tax assessor of Kuwalhau, which was supposed by many to have been settled months ago, is again tho topic of conversation in Kawaihau political circles. According to information given out in July 1922. Barclay resigned the office to take affect August 1st, and K. Masunaga, N. K. Hoo pii nnd Arthur Wong, all Republi cans, put In applications for tho position. Duo to tho fact that tho November elections were only throe months away however, those In pow er decided to postpone tho appoint ment until December, Barclay con senting to hold office until Decem ber 31. In August, while the subject was still the favorite topic, those who claimed to know, announced that Carlos A. Long, who hold the appointive power, subject of course to the approval of the treasurer of the territory, had settled the ques tion by making it known that N. K. Hoopii would bo his ultimato choice. This information was accepted by many as authentic but It develop ed last week that under the rules of tho Republican party, a candidate to secure appointment to an office situated in his own precinct, must first obtain the endorsement of his own precinct club and also of tho county committee of tho Republican territorial central committee. Hoo pii personally appeared before the executive committee of tho Kawai hau precinct club at a meeting last week, but failed to obtain endorse ment, as tho club had already en dorsed Masunaga and did not desiro to endorse another candidate until the attitude of tho county commit teo towards their first endorsement was known. The question of Braclay's succes sor is therefore still in the air, and unless tho wishes of the Knwaihau precinct are ignored altogether, in dications are that some other can didate than Hoopl will land this political plum.
