Honolulu The Seventeen to one in favor of Honolulu seems
Whole Thing, to be the basis of tho division of the general
appropriations for the territory as shown from Senate Bill No. 62
introduced by Senator J. M. Dowsett and now before .the Legis
lature for their approval.
That the peoplo may see just what is to bo done with the tax
payers money we give the items in full. They are;
Completion of Nuuanu Dam and Reservoir No. 4 $!0,000.00
Improvements to Nuuanu Reservoir No. 1 35,000.00
New Reservoir at Kaimuki, Complete 35,000.00
Extension of Cast lion Mains 25,01)0.00
Distributing System for Upper Knlihi 00,000.00
Installation for the burning of fuel oil at the Kalihi Pump
ing Station H ,000.00
Extension Water Works. Kamuela, Hawaii 1,500.00
Shed, Government Wharf No. 2 (two story) 45,000.00
Retaining Wall around Government Wharf No. 3 45,000.00
Dredging remainder of Kilauea Slip 50,000.00
Wharf along one side ana across the end of Government
Wharf No. 3 80,000.00
Retaining Wall along side and across the end of Govern
ment Wharf No. 1 40,000.00
harf along one sido and across the end of Government
Wharf No. 1 50,000.00
Shed Government Wharf No 3 (one story) 38,000.00
Extension of Wharf System Hilo-Reconstruction of
Government Wharf 15,000.00
Government Buildings, Honolulu, Administration Build
ing, Supreme Court and Judiciary Building 276,500.00
From this it will be seen that $883,500.00 is asked for Honolulu
and $10,500.00 for Hawaii while the other islands are left in the
co'd without a cent although there are public improvements as
badly needed on some of the other islands as there aro on Oahu.
Do the human swine of Honolulu mean to suck the life blood from
the other islands forever and eternally? Is there any good reason
why the islands of Hawaii, Maui and Kauai should pay for the re
servoirs, pipe lines and pumping stations for the sole benefit of
Honolulu. Is it any wonder that the members from the other is
lands revolt at the unsurpassed gall of Honolulu in asking the
other islands to pay nearly a million of dollars for her benefit while
not a cent is proposed for the improvements of the other islands
Is it any wonder the members from the outer islands tamed
down the bill to appropriate funds for the Promotion Committee
when such greed is manifested by the Honolulu members even if
the bill was a good one.
Any one who knows any thing of a republican government knows
that such items as water works and sewer systems are local affairs
and should be paid for by the localities requiring them and Vhat
they have no place in general appropriation bills.
The members of the legislature from Hawaii, Maui, and Kauai
are to be congratulated on the firm stand they have taken against
this wholesale robbery of the taxpayers of the whole territory for
the sole beuefit of any locality and if they continue to do so they
will have done more for the benefit of the territory than has been
done by any of their predecessors.
An Impending A recent ruling of the Attorney General of the
Crisis. United btates that it is uniawiui lor any in
dividual or corporation to assist immigration but that states and
territories may do so, will be found the most serious blow to the
Americanizing of the Territory that has struck tho islands since
The Territory requires thousands of laborers to carry on the
work of the plantations and must depend upon labor from abroad
and as this labor has been brought here principally from Europe
and Asia by tho planters the supply has been kep"t up to the re
quirements of tho industries here. The ruling of the Attorney
General will end all of this aud it will be but a short time until the
labor here will be almost entirely composed of Japanese who would
soon have the whole labor situation entirely in hand and dictate
terms that would make profitable cultivation of cane in the islands
A way out of the difficulty should be considered and such action
taken that will prevent a condition that would bo unbearable to the
white and Hawaiian citizens. Higher taxes for the purpose of pay
ing the transporation of white laborers would bo a great burden
upon the middle and poor classes of people and should be avoided
if possible. A specific tax on the corporations that would bo the
most benefitted would probably be cheorfully paid by them even
though it be unconstitutional.
The matter is one that demands careful consideration and prompt
action on tho part of the legislature or we may all be driven to the
wull in a short time.
Advertiser makes The Advertiser of the 20th editorially
False accusation, condemns Representative A J. Gomes
o! Maui for signing a report favoring tho appropriation of $25,000
for tho Promotion Committee and then voting against his own sig
The Advertiser is usually correct in its statements and fair in
policy but in this instance it was radically wronsr.
As a matter of fact Representative Gomes did not sign tho re
port in question and had as much right to vote against the measure
as any one.
While the measure in question was one that should have received
the support of the whole delegation it is more than probable that
the attitude of Honolulu in preventing tourists from leaving the
citv limits has caused the members to defeat tho measure that
meant so much to Honolulu.

For, two weeks, wo have been urging the people of Mini to
secure a place among tho ''Select Green!" This was evidently a
typographical error and the compositor may th ink his stars that
that ho didn't go ono bettor and make the phrase road "Select
Greenies. as that would have resulted in tho sudden and violent
death of Iho editor nnd tho utter annihilation of tho office.
But ono small month remains of the time alloted to this con
test and wo want every one to make the best uso of it, wo urge
each and every candidate to secure a place in the "Select Seven."
