bad Condition, "f the county of Hawaii seem to bo in bad
There is not sufficient funds in the liands of the Treasurer to
pay the outstanding claims against the County at the present time
even if all of the funds of different ch.sses were available to pay
the same. The Ililo Tribune of the 12th instant, says:
One of the most remarkable, and from the taxpayers standpoint ,
by all odds the most unsatisfactory of all meetings yet held by the
Hawaii County Board of Supervisors was that which took placo
last week. Vhcn the labors of the body had been concluded t he
only result which showed was that the County is very much in debt
and is with little hope of gottiny out of debt for some time to come.
If the course which has been pursued by the present itourd is con
tinued in the future, it is morally certain that so far from getting
out of debt, the County will head straight towards bankruptcy.
To reduce the matter to figures, things stood j'jst this way:
On November 7 there was shown to be a credit balance in tne
General Fund of the County amounting t $7,01)7.215.
The Iioad Funds of the different districts showed this balance:
SHilo 3,235 22
N ililo 1,:.;7S.53
NKohala 1,3 1!) 2S
N Kona 1,,3S2.'21
S Kona 1,370.3.5
Total 14.44U.21 107.12
Thus, in all of the district funds put together, there remains a
debt balance of $10,342.09. Even if all of the money in the General
Fund should have been applied to this, there would have remained
a bebt balance of if2.fi44.83. As it happened on the resolution in
troduced by Supervisor Kalaiwaa, of Kona, a sum of $7,100 was
lakeu from the General Fund's slender balance and applied in the
following outrageously unfair manner:
South Ililo 1.4 IX)
North Hilo WW
S Kohala 200
N Kohala 200
N Kona S00
S Kona M0
Puna ' 500
It will be remembered that the "per centage'' system of distri
buting the road funds was dispensed with some time ago. 15y
that system esch district received a share of a transfer from the
General fund proportionate to the amount of taxes paid in that dis
trict. Under this system South Uilo, the largest tax paying dis
trict by far, used to receive nearly 40 "J. Under the regime of Ka
laiwaa, of Kona, note the change! The Konas used to get about
5 and now they get more than does South Uilo. Ilamakua,
whence comes Purdy, should get about 20"o instead of which over
35 is handed out-and this despite the fact that a similar sum of
$2500 was handed out last month, with the result that t'urdy came
blandly to the front with the record breaking deficit of $0,1)12 bl!
To the credit of Shipman of Kau and Supe of Tuna it must be
recorded that they voted against the resolution but with Kala'waa,
Keoki, Pudy and Chairman Todd against them and Woods unavoid
ably absent, their votes simply wetit as a protest.
The foregoing recounts what occurred at the close of the meet
ing and while as a usuul thing, the end is recorded last, the im
portance of the transaction renders it worthy of first mention.
The County of Hawaii today is quite out of funds. The sum
of less than $000 left in the General Fund has been eaten up by
outstanding warrauts, by incidentals such as transportation of pri
soners or insane persons and the treasury is as empty as a last
year's bird's-nest. There will be no funds available until early in
December and when those funds arrive they will have to be
expended in settling the wage bill for the present month. Mean
while, at the preseut rate, the deficit v ill be largely increased.
The lepers win The announcement that twelve lepers are to
their point. he treated by Wallach indicates that the
lepers have won their poiut and the b oard of Health has lost.
In the early spring the News advocated allowing Wallach to
treat such of the leppers as desired to be treated by him as we
failed to see any harm to come of this course and felt sure that evil
consequences would follow in case the Board of Health refused to
allow tne lepers the privilege of grasping at the straw of hope they
had of recovery from the treatment offered. In this we were right
as is evidenced by the turn affairs have taken.
The greatest mistake of the present Hoard is in the way the mat
ter has been handled.
The professional pride of certain members of the board got the
better of their judgement and great harm and no good has been
Had Wallach been allowed to go to the settlement at the time the
matter was beforo the Legislature it would have been settled by
this time and none of the bitter feeling would have been in evi
dence that is now so noticeable.
It will now take a long tima to allay the feeling against the board.
The board has gotien the worst, of the matter and changes in the
personel of the board will probably be the result.
We have always felt that President t'inkham has boon o. of the
most untiring ollicials in the service of the Terrii iry and much
credit is due hici for die able manner in which he had conducted
most of the affairs of the Hoard of Health but the way the Wallach
affair has been mismanaged has lead many to believe that he is in
a measure responsible for the trouble and whether he is respon
sible or not he has lost much prestige that he can not hope to regain.
