Classes Jlnile On llnsis of Assessable
Honolulu, February .Re
publican members of the Legis
lature spent last evening in, con
ference with members of the Com
mission which framed the county
measure. Utiited States District
Attorney Breckons, who framed
the bill and who is better known in
connection with it, atid who aso i ions of his dtities as such assessor;
knows it better, than any of, the and any or all failure or failures on
other, was also in attendance, 'and the part of such officer to pay over
assisted in the more complete under to the proper person or persons any
standing of the bill by the .men ' money received by him as assessor, i
who must pass upon it later. There and any or all failure or failures of
to receive the same, any books,
papers, or other things pertaining
to his duties as collector of taxes or
as county recorder.
S;c. 5. In counties of the third
class the auditor of each county

were only two amendments agreed
upon, but Inter meetings will be
held at which the ideas of the legis
lators will be pressed.
It was demonstrated during the
remarks of Mr. Ureckons, nnd by
said assessor to deliver to any per
son or persons authorized by law to
receive the same, any books, papers
or other things pertaining to his
duties as assessor of taxes.
There will be considered and pre-
the answers to queries during the 'sentcd to the caucus of Republicans
three hours of session, that there
are some changes which may be
made without destoryinu the co
herency of the measure, but in its
general lines it was found to fit the
situation. Many of the hitherto
proposed changes were seen to be
out of place when the whole meas
ure is considered. The division of
counties was changed only to pro
vide that to Oahu county is to be
added all islands not mentioned in
the bill. This is to take care of
Midway and such small anddetach
cd islands. In Oahu county the.
districts were changed so as to pro
vide for Ewa and Waianae district.'
The salary bill, embodying as it
does the provisions for consolidation
of officers in various counties, was
introduced and will be taken up at
later caucuses. The bill contains
eighteen sections. Of these the last
thirteen simply enumerate the of
fices and as the amounts of salary
arc blank the' arc omitted, the
ones which cover the classification
of counties being as follows:
Section 1. For the purpose of
fixing the compensation to be paid
to county and district officers, the
counties of the Territory arc classi
fied as follows:
1. Counties having an assessed
valuation of more than fifty millions
of dollars shall be counties of the
2. Counties having an assessed
valuation of more than fifteen mil
lions of dollars and less than fifty
millions, shall be counties of the
3. Counties having an assessed
valuation of less than fifteen mil
lions of dollars shall be counties of
the third class.
Sec. 2. The assessed valuation
of each county in the Territory for
the year in which there is held
a general election shall determine
to what class such county shall be
long during the succeeding two
Sec. 3. In counties of all classes,
the sheriff shall be, by virtue of his
office, the coroner therein, and shall
perform such duties in that regard
as are prescribed by law; and the
bond required byJaw to be given
by such sheriff shall cover any and
all violations of his duty as corouer,
and any and all failure on his pan
to pay over to the proper persons
any money received by him as
coroner, and any failure or failures
on the part of such sheriff to deliver
to the person or persons authorized
by law to receive the same, any
books, papers or other things per
taining to his duties as coroner.
Sec. 3. In counties of the second
and third class the county treasurer
of each county shall be by virtue of
his office collector of taxes therein;
and the county clerk of each county
shall be by virtue of his office re
corder therein; and in such counties
of the second class such officers
shall perform such duties in that
regard as are prescribed by law.
The bond respectively given by
such county treasurer and such
county clerk shall cover any or all
violation or violations of duties of
such officer as collector of taxes or
of recorder, and any or all failure
or failures on the part of such
officers to pay over to the proper
person or persons any money by
him as collector of taxes or as
county recorder, and any or all fail
ure or fnilurcs of sard treasurer or
said county clerk to deliver to any
person or persons authorized by law
later the bill drawn by Lihuc lie
publicans, placing tin control of
the schools under the counties, but
providing as well a Territorial
Hoard which shall have charge of
the issuance of certificates and the
normal and other Territorial schools.
The organization of county boards
of education and the election of a
county superintendent is provided,
as well as the machinery for the
control of the various schools under
the Hoard of Education and the
Board of Supervisors of the counties.
Home Rule legislators will meet
today or tomorrow for the purpose
of taking up the consideration of a
county bill drawn for them by J. M.
Poepoe. The measure is said to be
a complete one. There will be
however general discussion cf the
Republican bill as well, as there are
many members of the minority who
think it would be wise to suggest
alterations in that measure for the
purpose of endeavoring to secure
changes and hoping that there
may be had the support of many
Republicans who have amendments
to suggest as well, and will want
votes to carry them through.
