PAYING -FOR WHAT?
The taxpayers of the city and county of Hono-
lulu.arc entitled to know what lies behind tin
sudden move on the part of menders of the
board of HiiinrvisorH for a "municipal pajier".
tfuficrvfroni say that they want to get up a
rtcord of the boAviV actions to prevent when the
aim tthc supervisors also admit that if the

W tlie official' organ of the city and countv of
Honolulu. ' .
The; plan now involves at least one additional
salary, for the tupcrvisors are going to employ
a special clerk, and he is to get $100 a month.
It also involves payment of $1 a page for stencil
ing the. niinieographed; sheets. About thirty of
these sheets are to be circulated.
V The supervisors confess that the paper they
have in mind cannot now earn7 the citj-'s adver-
;lisirig? because it does not conform to the city
charter s nqulrenient that bills and resolutions

Uooscvilt's confession of faith" delivered
yistcrday in Chicago, reads much more like the
label on tin outside of a bottle of patent medi
cine. The doughty colonel is claim in jr a sovereign
remedy for even evil that hurts the body poli
tic, from iolitical headache to political gout, and
he has prescribed his patent -medicine as a cure
all. Twenty thousand words of his prescription
were handed Chicagoans vesterdav.
No such hixlge-pixlge of issues has been sub
mitted to a convention for many campaigns past,
if at all. His adherence to the doctriue of recall
of judicial decisions was expected, but this is
only a small part of the heterogeneous medicated
compound that he mixed and labeled ".My Poli

Stlie wliole purpose of municipal ad ver t ishig
is piiWieity. It is publieitv tliat gtianls the tax-
layers vinst sieiils and ileals and Kt ty ixli-
tics and back-room bargaining. And the imme
diate danger in this particular piece of supervi
sorial scheming is that the publicity of the city's
operations will Ik? turned 'over to a ridiculous
little sheet which circulates only because it is
handed around free.
Outside of this objection, wVich is a future
probability, the taxpayers certainly do not want
the supervisors to hire more clerks to get up re
ports for them. It is argued that the sjiecirtl
clerk will work over the board's acts for the past
few months and up to the end of this year,
so that his salary will average only $r() a month.
This is a juggling of figures. And isn't there
enough intelligence at the city hall to get up this
- report without th necessity of slapping anoth
er salary or the already astonishing list?
The plan of the suiervisors now will not in
jure the newspapers of Honolulu. It will injure
themselves and th city's welfare. The Star-
