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

HOUSES PASSES THE DIMO.VD
(MEASURE ON RECEIVING A
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."
ARE DISCOVERED, TREATED AND
CURED THROUG IITHE AGENCY
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.

LAST STAGES flf COU NTY ACT
House Promises To Finally Pass the Bill During This After
The House promises to finally pass the county government act
this afternoon, sending it back to the Senate with the various
amendments reported by the House special committee on the sub
ject. At 1 1 o'clock this morning the third reading of the bill was
resumed, and when the House took a recess at noon, it was stated
that the reading would be finished by 5 o'clock this afternoon.
Vice-Speaker Knudsen, who occupied the chair, told the nicni
' bcrs that they would be recpiired to get excuses before leaving
their seats. "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. It is not fair for
some of the members to be having a nice time smoking in the
lobby, while we word hard in here."
After being passe' by the House the bill will go to the Senate
and the latter body will probably refuse to concur in the amend
ments and ask for a conference committee.

BUREAU OF AGRICULTURE A
PART OF THE DEPARTMENT OF
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
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.
IMMIGRATION OFFICIALS TO SEND
JAPANESE WHO VIOLATED CON- '
TRACT LABOR LAW TO JAPAN.
The Immigration Bureau will today
have deported to Japan, two Japanese
who violated the contract labor law.
The names of the men are Tomiklchl
Oda and Toyoklchi Sakai. They are

Japanese merchant to get Into trouble
with the Federal authorities.
Both Japanese came to this country
under a contract to work for Mr Ha
mano. He was tried in the United
States court recently on a charge of
violating the contract labor law. In
one case, he pleaded guilty and was
fined $1,000 and in the other, the pro
secution quashed the proceedings.
Both of the Japanese had been held
by the Federal authorities as witnesses
Egalnst Hamano. Inasmuch ns botli
had admitted to the Immigration olll
cials, their guilt In the matter, Inspec
tor Brown ordered both to be deported.
This morning, they were turned over
to tho custody of the Immigration au
thorities bv High Sheriff Brown. The
Jnps were taken aboard the America
Maru and locked up to bo kept until

flOVAl BAKIhO POP
The Maui Judge is Very Indig
nant That Rumors of His Be
ing Bribed by Chinese Gamb
lers Should be in Circulation
'Judge Kulua of the Third Circuit
court was the subject of more bribery
rumors during the term Just ended, the
Judge himself making the matter public
by mentioning It on the bench. 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.
