City and County Auditor Ex
plodes Mine Under Feet of
Unsuspecting City Fathers
" There was a dank, darksome feeling
about tha city hall last night after the
county auditor's statement of the fi
nancial standing of the city and county
had been, submltrcd. to the board of
supervisoj s. H 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. He 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 of 33,
000,; which, claimed the supervisor," Is
properly the property df. the county.
, ! After listening to this the f board
laid plans to. force the Territory,. to.
relinquish ; the money, ! and arranged
to, have deputy county- attorney .MU
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.
"If we ' receive this money, said
Murray "we will have, 'instead of a
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
A motion presented by Murray that
the attorney give an opinion on . the
subject, was passed . unanimously. :
County -Attorney Cathcart wrote to
thet-V board about the : allowance of
money for his department. He said
be is allowed ; only $50 a month for
material and supplies and had over?
run his account by about $450. He
said - that the rrayor 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 physi
cian $100, but his department had
been? shoved out in the cold with a
measly little old last year's allowance
of .but - $$0 a month. He stated i his
needs were as rcat as any other de
partment but the allowance has been
less. He'expressed the hope that the
incoming board would pass an appro
priation closer to his ; acuta: v needs.
The communication was accepted
and .filed.,-: ;v-,!;.,'':..;;:.
Nearly all the other, department
heads said they were. within their ap
propriations and few hac any out
standing bills.- Sheriff Jarrett said
he overran about $75, this ueig due
to. the fact that he had to put new
locks , on Jail doors and pay ror eiec
f Hct light current . from the Hawaiian
Electric Company during the recent
drought. 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 for the de
partment from $1100 to $1000.
Superintendent of Public Works
Bishop informed the board that he
had received its letter witii reference
to compelling the Honolulu Gas Com
pany to install street lamps in accord
ance with the provisions, or, Its iran
chlse, and asked for further informa
tion, following which he would send
a demand to theT company to install
them for the benefit of the public.
One of the supervisors stated that
bince the matter came up the com
pany has taken down the two lamps
which adorned the stone iedestals at
the entrance to Wilhelmina drive.
The mayor said that if tne 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
