THE PAKES GOT OFF Ml BID A REAL IT Lahaina And Wailuku Getting Ready For The Fray Talk That Judge Kalua May Re sign And Run For Shiriff, A lot of political activity Is reported on Maul as a result o the rivalry o Lahaina and Wailuku for the honor of being the county' seat, and also among candidates for the various ofllces. One report has It that Judge Kalua Intends to resign from the bench and run for Bherlff of M'aui. The judge, It Is stated, would be a formidable opponent In the, campaign. The supporters of Lahaina claim that as a general port of call on the lea side of the Island, Lahaina Is more accessi ble to litigants and attorneys and that there would -often be considerable delay and expense In getting to Wailuku. Practically all the steamers running between Maul and Hawaii make La haina a stopping place. The legislature may leave the matter of selecting a cpunty seat to the voters of Maul, naming no seat In the act. In this event, It Is stated, Wailuku would probably win, as there appear to be more voters on Maul who want that place than there are supporters of La Jiaina. 1 S HIS SUIT SUPREME COURT SETS ASIDE DE CREE ORDERING SALE OP THE STAR BLOCK.

The House Committee on Agriculture and Forestry this morning reported favorably the W. W. Dlmond gas fran chise bill, Senate 'Bill No. 23, and the report of the committee was adopted, passing the bill on second reading. The same committee presented a re port In favor of tabling the House Bill No. 87, which' provides for another gas franchise, the Senate having already tabled a similar measure. In the re port approving the Dlmond franchise the committee says: "Your committee understands that two-thirds of the capital will be put up by local men and the remainder may be taken up by outsiders. The inten tions of those asking for this franchise Is to make this a local concern as far as possible. This Is not therefore a foreign company as some may infer from arguments advanced by those op posed to granting this franchise. A plant as proposed by those asking for this franchise established In this city means the expenditure of a large sum of money and a consequent employ ment of a great number of .working men. The committee believe that gas Is a very convenient article both for heating, cooking, etc. In fact the uses to which gas may be put are very nu merous. House Bill No. 10i is identi cal with Senate Bill No. 23, therefore your committee recommends that House Bill 103 bo tabled, anil that Sen ate Bill 23 be passed." CASES OF -EYE I! ARE DISCOVERED, TREATED AND CURED THROUG IITHE AGENCY OF KINDERGARTENS. During the month of March the teachers and hygienic agents of the Tree Kindergarten Association, discov ered is cases of "pink-eye." probably trachoma, among the children of the kindergartens, and Immediately isolated- the patients and secured treatment for them. Of the 18 cases, 10 have al leady been cured and the other two are on the way to recovery. "Pink-eye" or whatever the disease Is. is a highly and readily contagious disease of the eye, which yields readily to treatment if taken in time, but if not, may be followed by serious consequences. The Board of Supervisors of the Free Kindergarten association which held Its monthly meeting this forenoon at the Y. M. C. A. considers that in this one matter alone of detecting and re medying so many cases of this readily communicable disease, It. has done the community a distinct and valuable ser vice. The financial report for the year shows that the klndergalrten work maintained by the association has ex-' pended during the year $7,200. The number of pupils on the 'average In at tendance on the schools has been 310, so that the average annual expenditure haw been about $20 for each pupil. This is said to be a very moderate amount, indeed, and shows that the association has been administered care fully and economically. Yet economi cally as It has been administered, there will be a deficit of about $1,500 for the yea'j; which the board of supervisors hope will be met by public spirited members of the community. During the past month the attend ance at the kindergartens has been a decrease from provlous months on ac count of the prevalence of dengue fever but the Interest and efficiency has In creased. There have been made dur ing" the month under the direction of the hygienic department, 230 surgical dressings of one sort and another. Mrs. C. M.

"If anyone wants to leave let him tip the wink," said the speaker, "and I will consider him excused for five minutes. Any one who stays longer will be sent for.

GATORS is FULL OF BUREAU OF AGRICULTURE A PART OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS. The government nursery on King street has been closed by order of Sup erintendent of Public Works Cooper, ns a result of a discovery that It Is badly Infected with pests and the distribution of plants wns spreading the pests all over the Islands. Incidentally, since the departure of Commissioner Wrny Taylor, the fact has been discovered that the agricultural bureau is n sub bureau of the Department of Public Works. It has not been generally known that the commissioner of agri culture and forestry was not the head of an Independent bureau, but an exa mination of the laws creating the posi tion show, It Is stated, that the superin tendent of public works has control over the commissioner of agriculture and forestry. The agricultural bureau was created by Section 423 of the civil code, and originally consisted of a board of five persons, the Minister of the Interior, cx-ofilclo, being president. The law oalls the agricultural department "a bureau In the department of the In terior," and the organic Act made no change In'the law except to substitute a commissioner for the board and a superintendent of public works for the Minister of the Interior. According to Professor R. C. L. Per kins there Is a bad assortment of bugs In the nursery. Pests of almost all kinds have gradually found their way Into the place, and It Is the intention now to have a general cleaning up. j sprays wu ioe used anu otner metnous employed to kill off the Insect pests and then the nursery will be reopened and the distribution of plnnts resumed. ' Professor Perkins says that the gov ernment ought to have a fumigating apparatus for plants, so that every, plant leaving the nursery might bo cleared of Insects.

Kalua. Is the Judge against whom attorneys ot Maul preferred grave charges before the 'Mitchell commission of United States Senators, and the commission's report severely criticized him. During the trial of Chinese gambling; cases last week Kalua stated that he had been Informed by a prominent citizen that It was common talk that he had been bribed in the case and the Judged expressed his Indignation that such reports should be spread. There were three gamblers who had been lined $400 each in the lower court having been the bankers in paknpto names and three others had been fined $100 ench and costs. The thrie who wree under fines of $400 were discharg ed by the Judge on a motion of acquit because the complaint charged the of fense on the 18th of the month and the evidence showed a different date. This Is said by attorneys to be another ex- traordinary ruling to Kalua's credit, as In many cases crimes tiro proved on different dates from those given In the Complaints or Indictments. Indict ments In the First Circuit 'are drawn alleging nn offense "on or about" a certain date and such indictment are. ' sustained by the Judges." The other three Chinese defendants went to trial and were found guilty their sentences being affirmed.
