Tells Commission Ills Views on
Lands nud Municipal Uorcrnmcnt
The chairman of the Commission
next called on Governor Dole to
make any statement regarding the
fire claims. He stated that he had
not prepared anything for presenta
tion to the Commission, along the
lines suggested. However, he
would answer any questions that
the Commission might ask. He
knew of nothing himself that he
cared to bring up.
BURTON HAS FKW QUKSTIONS.
The Governor was about to re
tire from the witness chair when
Senator Burton stated that he had
a question or two which he would
like to propound. In answer to
the first question asked, witness
gave what positions he had held
under the monarchy, the Provis
ional Government, the Republic
and the Territory.
Mitchell How matiy bills were
vetoed during the last session of
Dole I don't remember now.
Three or four, I think.
Mitchell Do you recall any of
The witness referred to the "lady
dog" bill, and the county bill.
Taking up the latter, he said it had
been handed him just a few hours
before the session adjourned. It
was a very large document which
it was impossible to examine in the
limited time. Such examination
as could be made led him to the
conclusion that the bill ought to be
allowed to die.
Asked by Senator Mitchell with
reference to his ideas on county
and municipal government, witness
stated that he had studied the mat
ter and was in favor of the passage
of a bill which would prescribe the
terms of such government, leaving
it to each division to adopt the
measure when they should see fit.
He was not in favor of having the
measure forced by the Legislature.
Mitchell Then you would not
advise that Congress compel county
CONTROL, OP GOVERNMENT LANDS.
Mitchell How about the gov
ernment lands. Do you think they
should be under Federal control?
Dole No. I thitik they should
be under the control of the Terri
Asked as to his reason for favor
ing such a plan, witness stated that
the Federal government would be
at a disadvantage in the matter of
the control of the government lands
here on account of being so far
away. It would be difficult to be
come posted as to conditions.
Mitchell What is the average
price of the public lands?
Dole From $3 to $10 an acre.
LANDS AT AUCTION.
Asked by Senator Mitchell if
some of the lands were not sold at
auction, witness answered in the
affirmative and stated further that
in some cases, lands were appraised
and in other cases they were not
appraised at all. The last named
were occupied by settlers. With
reference to cane lands, witness
answered that these leased at from
$2.50 to $3 a year. The majority
of these were under lease from the
monarchy, the terms of leases run
ning all the way from fifty down to
twenty and ten years. Under the
Organic Act these leases could not
be made lor more than five years.
MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT EVENTU
ALLY. Burton Do you favor municipal
Dole For cities?
Dole I think so eventually. It
would be rather a hard thing to
bring about satisfactorily but I rec
ognize the situation. There is a j
desire of the community for it and 1
I think it must be met.
Senator Burton asked if the hor
rible situation of affairs as obtained
at the plague time would have oc
curred had there been county and
municipal government here and the
witness answered that he did not
know. Senator Burton then asked
the question in several forms, the
final one being: "Would such a
state of affairs be allowed to exist
in a community where people had
the right-to vote?" Witness an
swered that he believed the ten
dency would be to improve the sit
uation. However, there were cities
on the Mainland whose condition
was just as bad as Honolulu during
the plague time. Senator Burton
replied that he had never visited
any place where the conditions were
such as had been given with refer
ence to Honolulu.
APPOINTIVE OR ELECTIVE.
The next question asked by
Senator Burton was whether it
would not be better for all the offi
cials of the Territorial government
to be elected rather than appointed.
Witness replied that he did not
think so. He had heard expres
sions along that line but experience
had proved this to be a false im
pression. For instance, at one
time here, the road boards were all
elected and in the case of Hilo in
efficient men were chosen. A large
amount of money passed through
their hands and there were no ap
preciable results. There were
scandals and the Legislature
changed the law. This was in 1387
or 1888 and the law was changed a
few years later. The law was both
made and revoked under the mon
archy. Witness, in response to another
question by Senator Burton, went
on to say that he believed the sys
tem as carried on by the Federal
government was the best for the
islands. Witness stated that he
knew this system to be different
from that of the Territories of the
Mainland but still he believed the
results would be better.
Senator Burton next asked if it
was not because the people of the
Islands were not capable of exer
cising the right of franchise that
had led witness to the conclusion
he had just stated and Governor
Dole answered that some of the
electorate were unequal to the task
of electing all classes of officers.
MATTER OP COMPARISON.
Senator Burton again asked the
question if the witness had not ar
rived at his conclusion because the
majority of the electorate were in
capable of exercising the right of
franchise intelligently and the
answer came that the term "intelli
gently" was quite general. Wit
ness kept on comparing the local
with the Federal government and
Senator Burton said: "You can't
compare the Territorial with the
Federal government." Witness
answered that that was just what
he did do. If the same system
were earned out here, the results
would be better. Asked if he did
not know the principle which he
had stated to be un American, wit
ness replied that he did not. The
Federal system of government was
certainly American. If it was de
sired to run the Territory on the
plan suggested, it was certainly ac
cording to American principles.
GOVERNMENT LANDS AGAIN.
Senator Burton next asked a
number of questions as to the pub
lic lands one of which was what
the witness thought about the con
trol thereof. Should they be in
the hands of the local rather than
the Federal government? Witness
answered in the affirmative, stating
as before that it would be very diffi
cult for the Federal government to
manage affairs here when it was so
Burton Would it be any more
difficult for the Federal government
to administer affairs here than in
Burton Your cable would make
communication complete. That
being so, would it not be wiser that
the public domain be under charge
of the authorities at Washington ?
