Quick Work Is Made
Of Party Platform
(continued from page 1.)
At the name time the platform Is "un
alterably opposed" to a government
owned or operated merchant marine.
Withuot going Into details in any
sense, a revision of the charter of the
city and county of Honolulu is pledg
ed, as is also the enactment of amend
ment -to other county charters that
may be asked for by county legislative
Remuneration to territorial prison
ers for labor, and parole of prisoners
on the basis of the federal parole law,
Harbor improvements for all the
Islands is urged, including the west
breakwater for Kahulul harbor (for
which a federal appropriation of $250,
000 is already believed to have been
made) and for a wharf at Lahaina..
A homestead bureau of the land de
partment Is urged, as is also a federal
tariff on coffee in the interest of the
small farmer of Hawaii . The delegate
to congress Is pledged to work for
the change in the organic act by which
it will be possible to break up the terr
lory's pastoral lands into areas of
not more than 200 acres for small ran
ches. It declares the present methods
of leasing this land constitute a "con
sistent monopoly" by a few corporations.
"We favor the levy, collection and
the distribution of taxes by the City
and County of Honolulu and by all of
the counties of the territory", ls'the
burden of the plank on this subject,
but the candidates are pledged only to
"the careful and economical expendi
ture of public funds, together with
business-like conservation of the
same through provision for well con
sidered permanent improvements.
Tax Rate Revision
A tax rate revision is urged and the
appointment of a board of equalizat
ion for each county .
Frontage Tax For Honolulu
The frontage tax principle for
street paving and sewer construction
for Honolulu is again confirmed.
Urging preparedness as a national
and territorial principle and recom
mending that the next legislature en
act a law requiring that all boys over
14 in all the schools of the territory re
ceive military drill and instruction,
the convention passed a plank that
threatened to cause trouble but did
n't. H. A. Baldwin ,of Maui was re
sponsible for the train'ng idea in all
schools, public and private, and he
would have liked an amendment re
quiring military training for all males
between 18 and 48 years of age. This
amendment, however was not pressed.
Education And Correction
Theplatform pledges ample support
to the public schools, and addition to
the facilities of the industrial schools,
and money to construct and maintain
a suitable juvenile detention home.
The platform declares for financial
aid from the territory towards mainte
nance of various public sanitariums
for treatment of tuberculosis in the
various counties. It also opposes any
suggestion of establishing a national
leprosarium in the territory. This
last clause was vigorously opposed
by Dr. E. S. Goodhue of Kona.
A military belt road around Oahu;
a uniform form of fire insurance pol
icy, and regulation of rates; better
system of public accounting; adequate
support to promotion work, and for
plant and animal quarantine service;
continued adherence to the present
liquor laws, and citizens labor law;
the amending of the workmens' comp
ensation law along lines suggested by
the several industrial accident boards;
a free sewer and garbage system for
Honolulu; and federal development of
local fisheries, were the other planks
in the completed platform.
