Snifet'tcil Changes Mil do liy J ml (to

Tlic following amendments are
suggested to the County Bill as it
was submitted by the committee
appointed to draft it:
Under Sub-divison I) of Section
i, Chapter i, Page 3, strike out the
word "Kast Hawaii" and insert
the word "Cullom."
My theory for offering this sug
gestion is this, that for political
reasons the counties should be
named after distinguished Ameri-
! cans and civen verv short names
and all streets, parks, public monu
ments ana institutions of various J
kind'), where the same may be pro
per, should be given Hawaiian
names; but no-one likes "Hast Ha
waii," Island of Hawaii, Territory
of Hawaii; it is too much, nor Hilo
nor any other name excepting' Cul
lom. Cullom was the chairman of
'the commission which annexed the
Islands; he is head of the Foreign
Relations Committee of the Senate;
I he managed the legislation on the
1 Organic Act; he is warm friend of
' the Islands and a little recognition
1 of this kind would cause him to
I remember that we were not forget
ful, and, as his present chairman
ship makes him very close to the
resident, it wouiu oe tne proper
thing to do.
Amend Section 13 of Chapter 5
on Page 6 of the Bill by striking'
out the word "five" and inserting
the word "three" in lieu thereof,
so that the section as amended
may read that the county "must
have a Board of Supervisors con
sisting of three members."
Three men will do all the mis
chief that is necessary in any county
in this Territory and will be less
Amend Section 3 of Chapter 8 on
Page 10 oi said Bill by adding to
said section, after the word "bid
der." "Provided, however, that
the Hilo Hospital, as it now exists
and is controlled, shall be run and
operated as" a Territorial Hospital
under the control and supervision
of the Territorial authorities and
over which the Board of Supervisors
sha 1 have no control whatever;
provided further that said hospital
shall be sustained by appropriations
made by the legislature at caclr-of
its sessions "
My object in offering the above
amendment is this a county poor-
house or a county hospital is one
thing, a territorial hospital is some
thing else and in the States we
have state institutions scattered all
over the states, some located one
place and some another, and they
by the state legislatures managed
by the state boards of control or, as
they are usually known, three com
missioners who audit the accounts
and control the affairs of all the
penal and benevolent institutions
of the state. It would .be almost
impossible to iuiikc uiv. xx:i. xr.
pital, as it is at present established,
a county hospital since the British
subjects have erected one section of
the hospital known as the "Queen
Victoria Annex"; Hackfeld&Co.
have erected and furnished another
section known as the "Hackfeld
Ward." The realty upon which
the hospital stands is Territorial
land, Hilo is the largest city outside
of Honolulu and is located on, of
course, the largest Island and it is
little enough for the Territory to
allow a Tcrritoral Hospital for the
Island of Hawaii to be located in
Hilo; at which all people can be
properly treated under the present
rules and regulations. Then the
County Board of Supervisors may,
in their discretion, establish a
county poor-house for such other
patients and inmates as from time
to time as years go by it may be
come necessary to take care of.
Amend Section 2, Chapter 2,
Page 3, by striking out all up to
and including the word "provided."
Allow the districts to stand as in
dicated, except the "County of
Kast Hawaii," which shall be the
."County of Cullom." and "provid
ed also that the district magistrates
in each of the districts named shall
be elected at the first general elect
ion held after the taking effect of
this act and that such justices of
the peace or district magistrates, '
so elected, shall hold their offices j
for the term of two years or until
their successors shall have been
elected and qualified, and that the
present district magistrates shall
hold their offices until their suc
cessors under this act shall have
been duly elected and qualified."
Amend Section 13, Chapter 5, at
Page 11, by striking out the word
"five" and inserting the word
"three;" and also by striking out
the word "five" in said chapter
wherever the same may appear the
same as it does in Section 13.
The suggestion made by this
amendment has been heretofore re
ferred to in these suggestions for
Amend Section 17, Chapter 5, by
striking out after the word "the"
in the first line "County Clerk"
and inserting in lieu thereof the
words "County Auditor."
The reason for this amendment
will commend itself to the members
of the legislature for the reason
that the relationship existing be
tween the County Auditor and the
County Commissioners, or County
Supervisors as they may be called,
is such as to make it less difficult
for the County Auditor to discharge
the duties of clerk to the County
Supervisors and is more in line of
his work than is that of County
clerk; hence the suggestion of
Amend Section 2, Chapter 2, by
adding Sub-Division A, that all
counties shall be sub-divided into
townships, which townships shall
not be less than six miles square
The reasons for making this
suggestion are that in organizing
counties the organization should be
correct under the policy of our na
tional system, and it is necessary to
have townships as well as counties,
and in organizing counties and dur
ing the formative period it is just
as easy to establish township boun
daries in the respective counties in
accordance with the limit of the
county territorially and perfect the
organization with one act of the
Legislature, as to establish districts,
as proposed in Section 2 of Chapter
2, and then find it necessary to es
tablish townships and repeal the
districts later on.
Amend Section 379 of Chapter
63 at page 113 by striking out the
entire section and substituting in
lieu thereof the following: Section
379. "The Board of Supervisors of
each county shall be, and hereby is
charged with the erection, construc
tion, maintenance and general sup
erintendence of all improvements of
whatsoever kind cr nature of their
Amend Sections 380, 381, 382,
383. 384. 385. 386, 387. 388, 389
and 390 by striking out each and
all the said sections and inserting
in lieu of all the sections thus
stricken out the following: "All

and closing of highways shall re
