Secretary tinier Throws
Honolulu, Aug. 17. Governor
Dole, who is busily engaged in pre
paring his anntinl report, to be for
wurdctl to Washington in a few
days, recently requested Secretary
of the Territory Carter to prepare
a statement of the Territory's finan
cial standing ns a guide to the Execu
tive iu his recommendations.
Secretary Carter collected all
necessary figures dud presented the
Governor with n statement in with
items arc so spgregated nnd classi
fied that the story ofthe Territory's
financial status is plainly told.
Principally, the statement ol Sec
retary Carter illustrates the fact
that the expenses which the last
Legislature considered necessary
and for which it made appropria
tions are much iu excess of the
revenues of the Territory.
Speaking on the subject this
morning, Mr. Carter said: "This
last Legislature had a very difficult
proposition to handle financially; it
was not really prepared to intelli
gently make appropriations, and
when I say this I do not mean in
any way to adversely criticize any
body. "Under the old Monarchy and
under the Hawaii Republic the
question of appropriations was to a
large extent in the hands of the
Minister of Finance.
"Then only such appropriations
were asked for as it was known the
Government could afford.
"Now it is n different matter.
The question of appropriations is
; left to
the representatives of the
and appropriations in the
j per. pie
last two Legislatures were made on
the bat is of what was needed, not
on the understanding of what could
"Since all the money appropriat
ed for various public purposes will
not be available," continued the
Secretary in answer to a question,
"it will necessarily be decided be
tween the heads of the various de-
Secretary Carter's statement
shows the following facts, which
speak for themselves:
Total receipts from all sources
for the year ending June 30, 1903,
amounted to $2,648,262.58. Of
this amount the following will not
reoccur: fire claims, $5,077.27!
Chinese fund, $155,546.70.
The deficit as represented by !
Treasury notes was $105,000; $265,
623.97, therefore, cannot be counted '
as income Thus the actual income '
for the past year was $2,382,638.61
J The revenues for the present year,
1 with six months under the county
systeir can be estimated at about
, aim personal property, $1,229,-
1 108.03; income tax, $200,000;
I licenses, 6 months, $70,000; rcali-
zations, 6 months, $1,200; revenue

! "e"t of Public Instructions, $6,500,
estimate 12 mouths; harbor master,
Honolulu, 12 mouths, $70,000; L
Public Works, $70,000; fines and
costs, 6 months, $34,000; storage
of kerosene, 6 months, $3,220;
wharfage, Hilo, $1,200; storage of
powder, Honolulu and Hilo, C
months, $1,000; Honolulu Water
Works, 6 months, $50,000; other
water works, 6 months, $6,265;
registry office, 6 months, $7,600;
land revenues, $105,000; Govern
ment realizations, $10,000; total
present income, $1,805,093.03.
As to prospective income, Secre
tary Carter shows that the Auditor
estimates the annual revenues' for
the Territory, with the county sys
tem in full force, to be some $865,
446. Appropriations passed by the
Legislature at its last session and
which arc immediately available
amount to $464,225.14; appropria
tions to be paid out of revenues for
the current year, from July 1, 1903,
to June 30, 1904, amount to $2,072,-377-37;
remaining six months,
$861,313.99; total for the year
Assessable values of real and per
sonal properties for the year 1902
total $122,910,803. One per cent
of this amount, the sum that, pro
vided by the Organic Act, can., be
borrowed by the Territory in one
year, is $1,229,108.03. For the
two years before the next Legisla
ture, therefore, twice this amount,
or $2,458,216.06 can be borrowed.
The items in the Loan Bill amount
to $2.3971270.75. Secretary Carter
has classfied these items as follows:
harbor improvements, $447,500;
roads and bridges, $656,394.88;
public buildings, $710,800; sewer
age systems, $130,000; garbage
crematory, $10,000; water systems,
$38i,575-87; "re protection, $21,
000; electric light, $40,000.
Recapitulation Amount.that the
Territory can borrow in the next
two years, $2,458,216.06; prospec
tive annual revenue, $865,446; total
present income, $1,805,093.03; total
last year's income, $2,382,638.61;
appropriations, $2,933,691 .36.
