RICH OAIIU COUNTY.
Revenues Would llnye llecn
Twice Her Necessities.
Honolulu, Jan. 12. Oahu county
will have just double as much in
come as is necessary for the actual
maintenance of its government
salaries and current expenses as
well. From a rough estimate made
yesterday by Chairman Hocidug of
the Board of Supervisors, with the
assistance of Clerk Murray, it was
found that the cost of maintaining
the county government for one year
would be approximately $428,000.
This is entirely exclusive of any
improvements and included only
fl,o cnlnrffia rf nmmtt. nfTn.rc orl
. 1.1 ' r'
employes and the necessary cost of ,
The income for the year from all
sources has been estimated at S860.-
j000. which is about double the an-
tieipatcd amount of expense. This
includes income tax and licenses,
water receipts, and one-half of the
property tax of which the Territory
receives the other half.
It is estimated that the county
will have at its disposal for building
bridges, new roads, etc., and for the
erection of county buildings, if
necessary, the sum of $400,000. Of
course there is a chance that a large
proportion of this balance may be
expended for aiding the health -de
partment, and in assistance to hos
pitals. There is also being talked
setting aside of a sum of
for permanent improve
such as building bridges,
The heaviestdrain onthecounty's
income will be the police depart
ment, which will require an annual
expenditure of about $180,000. The
road department will be the next
most expensive department of the
government, while thecotirts are ex
pected to cost in the neighborhood
of $25,000 a year.
Assessor Pratt has furnished to
the Board of Supervisors a state
ment of the probable revenue for
the first six mouths of the present
year, before the heavy taxes are
'l,aid ' November,
jis as loiiows:
poll $ ic 699.00
Carts and drays 3,220.00
Dogs and taxs ii5457o
The county will not have a surp
lus on hand until after the Novem
ber collections, but no permanent
improvement will be made until the
money is available, although plans
may be made beforehand.

Honolulu, T. H., Jan. 11, 1904.
Hon. Geo. R. Carter, Governor
Territory of Hawaii.
Sir: Iu answer to your request
of even date, as to the right of
agents dulv authorized , to grant
marriage licenses, pending the
qualifying of tax collectors for the
County of Oahu, I would reply as
Sec. 353 of the County Act reads:
"It shall be the duty of the tax
,, . ,.
collector to grant marriage licenses
in conformity with the laws; and
for each licens the said tax col
lector shall receive a fee of one
dollar to be paid by the party ap
By Section 49 of the same Act,
tax collectors may appoint deputies,
who shall have the same power as
their principals iu regard to all acts
required to be performed by said
Under these sections the power
is undoubtedly taken from the
agents as provided by the Legisla
ture, and placed iu the hands of tax
collectors and their deputies, but
such power cannot be exercised by
such tax collector and deputies un
til they have duly qualified, and
until there is such an officer those
holding licenses from the Territorial
Government continue to act.
It is .1 well set principle of law,
that there should never be an inter
regnum when officials whose term
has expired, by limitation that
otherwise can be made to hold over,
and as the present agents issuing
marriage licenses wquld have con
tinued iu office iu the absence of
the provisions of the county law,
they shall continue iu office, iu my
opinion, and have the right to act
until the officials under the County
Act have duly qualified.
It is. also a matter of public policy
that there should be persons within
the County of Oahu, Territory of
Hawaii, who should have the right
to issue marriage licenses, and only
those duly appointed under the
Territory have that right until the
qualification of the necessary county
