THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 1917.
Bills Would Boost Many Maui Salaries
(Continued From Page One.)
Makawao 1200 1320
Hana 900 1080
Molokal 600 900
Park For Hana
Representative Joseph has Introduc
ed a resolution calling for the ex
change of land of the Kaeleku Sugar
Company for government land of
equal value, the acquired land to he
used for a public park at Hana.
Something Doing In Schools
Representative Walsh, who Is on the
aouse committee on education, is tak
:i a great amount of interest in school
matters, and he intimates that there
will be a good deal of general Interest
to the public before the session is over
He returned this morning from Maui
vhere he went with Chairman Mar-
iiuez, and Representatives Ahuna and
Kawaha, of the education committee,
to look into affairs at Lahainaluna
It seoniB likely that the plan to turn
the old institution into mechanical
lines, rather than agricultural, and to
nut it in charge of a separate commls
.ion. will be carried out.
. There is very good prospect that
.eachers salaries will receive a sub-
otant'al boost. Governor Pinkham hav
ing recommended $71,000 additional
on this account. Other bills are also
Jlkely to be introduced with the same
object in view. Representat've Mar-
Hiez' H. B. 131, raises from $15,000 to
$67,000 the monthly payroll of
teachers, supervisors and princip
als, plus sixty dollars, instead
of fifty as at present, additional for
every thirty-five children of school age
i'.dd'?d to the enrolment of the public
schools after June 39, next.
Opposition To Congressional Junket
There is some doubt as to whether
the $40,000 appropriation for bringing
a congressional party to the islands
will go through. Kauai is said to be
opposing the proposition on the
grounds that she never gets anything
from the federal government, and
doesn't propose helping pay for a
pleasure trip for a lot of mainlanders.
There has been also some opposition
from Hawaii, but not serious. The
bill passed the House today and is
riow in the Governor's hands. It Is
understood the Governor will veto the
measure, and whether it can be pass
ed over his veto, with the other oppo
sition against it, is a question.
Paschoal Wants Armories
Representative Paschbal has a bill
now before the finance committee
calling for $46,000 to pay for six
armories on Maul as follows: Lahai
na, $15,000; Kahului, $7000; Puunene,
$7000; Haiku, $6000; Wailuku, $5000,
and Kaanapali, $6000, a total of $46,
000. Paring Down Process Begins
Reducing by nearly half a million
dollars the amount asked for by the
board of health, the ways and means
committee of the senate on Monday
reported a budget bill (S. B. 52) total
ing $3,479,852. The Governor's budget
called for $5,267,489.93, or over one
and three-quarter million dollars more
than the estimated revenues. The se
nate committee pared something off
all along the line. The national guard
demands get hit heavily, but are still
over $200,000 against $40,000 two
years ago. The cuts for the board of
General, from $41,400 to $33,800;
sanitation, $106,580, $68,760; quaran
tine, $54,000, $47,760; mosquito cam
paign, $36,120, $25,920; prevention and
cure of tuberculosis, $175,000, $120,
000; insane asylum, $138,000, $125,400;
new buildings, $150,000 (cut out).
Tavares Hands Out A Slam
There was a spirited fight put up on
Tuesday on H. B. 147, introduced by
he Judiciary committee as a substi
tute bill, when the measure came up
for third reading. The bill would pro
hibit the attorney-general, his deput
ies, and the several county attorneys
rind their deputies from appearing as
counsel in cases other than govern
mental. Lyman of Hilo painted a tearful
word picture of how some county at
torneys almost starve on the salaries
they receive and if they were not al
lowed to engage in private practise,
why, how could they live? He mov
ed to strike from the bill all reference
io county attorneys and their deputies.
Walsh supported Lyman. Silva and
Andrews supported the bill. If coun
ty attorneys were not getting enough
salary, give them more, but make
them tend to the public's business un
iiampor. d, they argued.
Tr.varfs told how he knew that cer
tain county attorneys went out of their
way to impair their official usefulness
by accepting outride law works.
"On Maui people are arrested for
adultery and similar crimes and the
cases never go to trial," he said. They
are dropped in the long run. And
why? Because those who are paid to
prosecute undertake to represent the
principals in divorce cases. And that
is the end of it all."
The motion to table the deletion of
the county attorneys and their deput
ies from the provisions of the hill was
lost, announced Speaker Holsteln. It
was a close vote, which ever way it
did really go.
Before the motion to adopt the
amendment could be put, however, Ly
man moved to defer further consider
ation of the hill until next Monday.
This carried and it probably saved
the amendment for the time being.
Abatement Bill Fight
Honolulu's efforts to abate the bo
c'al evil through a bill which would
close houses of ill fame through in
junction against the owners of the pro
perty, has been a warm issue in the
city for the past several weeks, and
the legislature is now the storm cent
er. A mass meeting held In the Opera
House last Saturday night strongly
supported the idea, which is said to be
successful in its object in a number
of states, notably Iowa. The senate
will hold a hearing on the matter,
open to the public, on Friday after
noon of this week, before a committee
of the whole, over which Senator
Cooke will preside. The bill being
considered is S. B. 10.
Marketing Division Bills
By two bills fathered by Represent
ative Gerrlt Wilder, it is proposed to
take the territorial marketing division
entirely out of the hands of the federal
experiment station, which originally
started the work, and to make it a
separate division of the territory. The
bill provides for the scope of the div
ision, much as It is at present, and of
the duties of the superintendent. A
second bill provides a revolving fund
of $15,000 which is to supply working
capital for the institution . It speci
fies that all accounts with producers
shall be settled monthly, of oftener.
Provides For Small Farmers
Provision whereby small farmers
may take up government land on a
yearly rental of four percent of the
assessed value, the lease to be for
999 years; and with an additional
rental of twenty cents an acre for each
one-tenth of a cent increase In the
price of sugar above three cents, is
made in a bill introduced in the house
today by Representative Norman K.
The bill adds a new portion to chap
ter 30 R. L. 1915, which relates to the
disposition of public lands. Under the
bill the land commissioner is author
ized to set aside from time to time
portions of public lands for occupa
tion as homesteads. Th's land shall
he selected only from agricultural
and pastoral lands, and each applic
ant shall not he given more than 40
rcres, or land of size sufficient for sup
porting an ordinary family. It is pro
ved that, reads be surveyed to com
municate the lots with a public road.
If Representative Norman Lyman,
of Hawaii gets half of the money he
wants for his county he should con
sider h'mself in luck. Following his
plan to raise $400,000 for a concrete
road to the Volcano by a special in
come tax, he last week asked for
$103,500 for eight armories for the
Big Island, $140,000 for a new high
school, $50,000 for a reservoir for
South Hilo, and $7500 for a survey of
a road from Hilo to Kona, between
Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.
Representative Walsh has introduc
ed a bill providing that all school
books needed in the public schools
shall be supplied to pupils at cost, and
parents or guardians required to buy
them as necessary for the children
in their care. In case parents or
guardians refuse or neglect to do this,
books shall he furnished the children
and the cost assessed and collected as
a part of the tax account of the per
son in question.
H. B. 162, introduced last Saturday
by Representative Walsh of Maul,
provides, "Any teacher who has been
in the service in Hawaii for twenty-five
years or more and whose
snlary for five years before retirement
has not averaged more than six hundr
ed dollars a year, may, instead of
making a cash payment to equal the
amount short of the required twenty
percent receive half of the
pension, until such time as the re
maining half equals the amount of the
shortage, after which said teacher
shall, receive the full pension.".
