Business SATURDAY Fame has only the span of a day but to live in the hearts of a people, that is worth something. "Ouida," Tin- mil Issue before the people today Is whether Hip taxpay ers lire to Kft the roads they pay for, or whether thry ure to pny (or roads and get n political machine. Advertiser. Assumina that such is the case the people are now getting a political machine that is neither giving them the roads they pay for nor a political machine of the character they voted for. Whether the roads shall be built by contract or not is en tirely beside the mark in so far as the Supervisors' control of the road department is concerned. - The situation today in the road department is an exact duplicate of a year ago when a Democratic road supervisor .marshalled the road laborers in a political parade and out ' raged the community sense of political decency by flaunting the use of public patronage for partizan purposes before the people and practically asking what they were going to do about it. What the people did do about it was, to vote Republican Supervisors into power and Republican Legislators into pow er, and the latter gave the Supervisors the authority to as , sume complete control over the public offices and public work for which they are and should be held responsible. ' Republican Supervisors would be absolutely false to. their trust if they failed to draft and pass the ordinance neces sary for them to take control of the road department. f Under the present system they are sitting around like "bumps on a log" while a Democratic road supervisor un der the direction of. the Democratic partizan ring that sur rounds the mayor, does just exactly what suits the welfare of the Democratic party. " That's all there is to it. Protection of that patronage was all that put fire into the . veto message that voiced the sentiments of the mayor and his i associates. i All 'that remains is for the Supervisors to center the re ft sponsibility for the road department where it belongs, where ftthe people voted that it should be, and do so promptly. After that is done, the people will then be in a position to & know exactly who to hold to an I UUO Pass the ordinance. EVENING Hudson How did you vole?

WINNING OF MACHINE PUT CORREA IN DEBT That the Overland automobile which Correa won an the first prize In the contest cost him close to 12000, consid erably more than the machine was worth and enough to plunge him Into debt. Is the report that Coriea's friends generally agree upon. Just vhether he went Into debt heavily or not has not been ascertained. I has been learned that he eves 1400, but this sum Is not largo enough, It was stated this morn ing, to have unsettled his mind, as his credit Mould have been good enough to havo raised a loan larger than this. Correa was awarded the automobllo on the night of July 3, when tlm-counl wai made. Ha had rolled up a total of 1 65,369 votes, more than twice as many as any omer contestant, and the weeks of work that preceded this had been strenuous ones for htm, physically and financially. Following tho award of the machine, Correa almost Immediately tried to sell It, It bus been learned on good au thority that the highest offer he re ceived was 800, and he refused this. He had some troubla In running the auto, several times getting It to a point where he could not operate It, largely from Inck of skill. Ho hud tried des perately to sell It, but without any offer thnt promised to repay him for the money he had spent In winning It. There In good ground for hellevlng thnt Corri had private debts that he hnd Incurred In winning the mnchlne, nnd of which he had said nothing. These nre supposed to have preyed on his mind DID GOOD WORK FOR . LOCAL CONSULATE Sr. A, de Kouza Cnnavnrro, consul general for Portugal, snld today that Correa had been under a strnln for the past few weeks, but aside from this knew of no reason for the deed. "lie was a bright and efficient man," sold the consul, "Ho had acted as my secretary often, though holding no olll clal position, and his work has always been kept up In good shape. He has no ofllclal connection with the consul ate, but has done much clerical work nnd used to call himself my secretary Correa Is a member of tho Ban An tonio Society and of the local branch of Foresters, and both of these will be represented at the funeral tomorrow Provided his accounts wore clear with the San Antonio Society, his widow will receive $1600. ALL STRAIGHT WITH AMUSEMENT COMPANY Correa's dealings with the Honolulu Amusement Company, through which he uon the machine, have been straightforward, and the theatrical poo pie are Ignorant of any reason for the suicide. J, II. Magoon, general man ogor of the company, said today: 'I regret tho occurrenco very much. Correa has been an upright and honest young man. He never owed us any money, and as far as the automobile contest Is concerned, he has done his part well and creditably. The machine which he won In tho contest Is worth today about $1600, and It he had not taken his life he could have made money from It. He was a bright and wide-awake young man." EMPLOYER KNOWS OF NO DISHONEST ACT Carl du Rot, manager of II. P. Elders & Co , Is now Investigating Cor rea's accounts to discover If there Is any shortage or Irregularity In the use of funds that would furnish a reason for tho young cashier's suicide. He ttattU this morning that so far ho has found nothing to Indicate dishonesty on Correa's part, that the man had been an efficient and faithful employe and that he knew of no motive for Belf destructlon. He said this morning: "So far as'I know, Mr. Correa has been a faithful worker. His accounts up to the present time have been straight. But his death Is a great sur prise to me, and I will have to look Into the matter more thoroughly bo foro I can say anything definite." HAD AUTO SHORT TIME BUT RAN UP BIG BILL Although Correa has had his machine le.ii than half a month, he had In curred expenses through using It amounting to about tlOO, according to a statement made today at the von Hamm-Young Compnny's garage, where the Overland has been kept. Correa put the machine Into tho ga rage on July 4, the vday on which It was turned over to him by the Hono lulu Amusement Company, and In the next eight or nine days ran up an ex penfco bill of ubout 1100. It has been In the garage'for two days without be ing taken out, it was stated this morn ing. HOME LIFE OF YOUNG MAN ALWAYS HAPPY Correa camo to Honolulu three years ago In an Immigrant ship from Ma deira. His ability In a clerkal way and his quick mastery of the English lan guage were pronounced and were rec ognized by his employers. He was married something over a year ago to Miss Joanna Haneberg, and a baby girl Is the result of the union His home life has always been happy, and no cause exists there for the sui cide, It U stated by his friends. PROOF OF GRAFTING "The first fruit from a grafted alli gator pear," remarked Mr, Gerrlt I. Wilder as he dropped In at the Bul letin office this morning and placed on the desk a magnificent alligator pear. "That Is the first fruit I have pick ed from a graft made sometime ago and It la the first I have seen on ex hibition. The fruit Is a graft from what we call the Esbank pear, and It Is true to the parent tree. Aa you all know these pears do not hold true if taken from the seed. The graft, however, Is always a certainty." t Tipplers and ba'wlers will be bar red from benefits In the new hospital department to be established by the Illinois Central railroad.
