City and Counfy Auditor Ex
piodes Mine Under Feet of
Unsuspecting City Fathers i
There was a dank, darksome feeling
about the city hall last night after the
county auditors statement of the fi
nancial standing of the city and county
had fceen submiiTed to the board of
supertlsors. . It , seemed ' to : take some
little time before the significance of
the report sank in, but when the city
fathers realized that they were short
about six thousand dollars there was
a little gasp.Then. Murray arose and
made a statement of his own. f Kte de
clared that . the shortage "was due to
the fact that the Territorial auditor
had held back from the county's use,
for school purposes, the sum or $33,
000, tohlch, claimed the supervisor, is
properly the property, of the icounty.
After, listening to this the board
laid plans to force the Territory to
relinquish the money, and arranged
to have deputy county attorney Mil
verton confei with the Governor and
Auditor Fisher, and failing . to secure
a settlement of the dispute In that
way, to bring, suit against the Terri
torial Auditor for the coin. v r z
"If we receive this money,., satd
Murray, "we will have, instead of m
deficit of $6,000, a balance of about
$15,000.' If we cannot settle ? It out
side of court, we can take the matter
up in the courts for a settlement of
the qiestion." ; ' 'M
- A motion presented by T Murray that
the attorney give an opinion on the
subject, was passed unanimously.
County Attorney Cathcart wrote to
the . board about . the allowance of
money for his department He said
he Is 'allowed 'only " $50. tt month for
materials and supplies and had brer-
run his account by about $450. He
said that the mayor was allowed -a
large entertainment fund, and money
to make the , mayor's auto go; ' that
the auditor received $100 a month,
the clerk $75 or $100, the city physl
clan 100t ,but- his department! had
been shoved out in the coid with a
measly little old last years allowance
of but . $50 a month. He. stated his
needs wfere as great & any other de
partment but . the allowance has been
less. He expressed the hope that the
Incoming board would pass in 'appro
priation closer to his actual needs
The ., communication . was . accepted
and filed.; : v:;, -.; 5. . : V:--;. -:X ; ?
"Nearly all this other W department
heads said they we're within their ap
propriations and : Tew had" any out
standing bills. Sheriff Jarrett said
he overran about $75, this being due
to the fact' that he had to put new
iocRs on jail doors and pay ror. elec-
trict light current from the, Hawaiian
Electric Company during- the - recent
drought. r He also stated that he had
some other bills, due to the fact that
he was unable to; , make both ends
meet since the supervisors reduced
the monthly . allowance f dr the de
partment from $1100 to $1000.
Superintendent of Public Works
Bishop informed the .board that he
had received Its letter with reference
to compelling the Honolulu Gas Com
pany to install street lamps In accord
ance with the provisions or its fran
chise, and asked for further, informa
tion, : following which s he would send
a demand to the company to Install
them for the benefit of the public, .
: One of the supervisors: stated that
since the matter came up the com
pany has taken down the two lamps
which adorned the stone pedestals at I
me entrance to vyuneimma anve.
The mayor said that if th company
had done this in the face or the dis
cussion, the company might be liable.
He did not say for what.
The new. ordinance provides for the
