suggestion of D. S. Bowman, agent
of the Board of Health.
Rules ami order of business were
The question of leasing Serrao's
hall created a warm discussion, Su
pervisor Desha contending that no
contracts should be made by the
Board until after a decision on the
County Ac) should be rendered by
the Supreme Court. The discus
sion resulted in the calling in of J.
U.Smith, the district attorney. His
opinion was asked concerning the
personal liability of members of the
Board on contracts, in case the
County Act should be knocked out.
The attorney was inclined to the
! view thut the members would be
personally responsible, and advised
the insertion of a saving clause in
all contracts. It was learned that
Serrao would take his chances on
the contract, so the agreement was
made for the rooms.
The committee on a seal, reported
recommending a design, as follows:
Cocoanut Island with eight cocoa
nut trees to represent the eight
islands of the group; with eight
rays of the rising sun; the words
"County of East Hawaii" to be en
graved above, and "Territory of
Hawaii" below the island. The
report was adopted.

Work on Hospital (fToiiuils.
P. Peck and I,. A. Andrews,
trustees of Hilo Hospital, presented
the following request to the Board
of Supervisors at the meeting last
Until recently the grounds of the
Hilo Hospital presented a very el is- j
reputable appearance. During the '
past three months we have had
prisoners grading the grounds and
putting them in order, but the !
work is not quite finished. When
the work is finished these grounds
will be one of the beauty spots of
Hilo town. It will take two. or
three weeks work of ' the present
available prisoners to complete it.
The hospital has not the money to '
finish the work, hut has one mouths
wages for the luua. We respect
fully request you to allow the work
to proceed until finished."
Mr. Lalukca's motion that the '
prisoners be set to work in the park ;
carried, and after discussion it was
decided to send half to the hospital
and half to the park.
Those sent to the park are mak
ing inroads upon the debris left by
former dwellers thereon.

A Mighty Hlir Job Wns Jolilied in
Honolulu, January 4. Auditor I
Fisher has just completed a task
which falls to few men to under-1
take, the designing, preparation 1
and publication of a complete set of
books and blanks for all the ofilces
of a County government.
In most places counties have ac
quired their system of books and
blanks, their records and financial
system, through a processof growth.
But with the introduction of County
government here, this system of ac
counts, books and blanks, had to
come full panoplied from the brow
of Jove, and in this case Auditor
Fisher was the Jove.
The County act provided that the
auditor should design and provide
all the forms, books and blanks
needed to carry out the act and to
supply the first set of County offi
cers with them. General directions
were given as to what these books
and blanks should contain.
Auditor Fisher employed Henry
Davis to study out the details of the
law applicable to the subject and
devise a system that would comply
with the law, be efficient and easily
Simplicity was one of the charac
teristics that Mr. Fisher insisted on. !
To meet the requirements of the
law and the conditions of use a ser
ies of eight different sets of books
for as many offices, and as many
sets of blanks had to be devised.
The experience of the Territorial
officers of similar duties was sought
and availed of.
The books in use were carefully
The result is a series of books
and a systcin of accounts which it
is believed can be carried out by
any official of average good sense
and education, and yet will meet
all the requirements both of sta
tistical information and exact ac
counting. The form is very simple.
For every office that 'eceives
money from every source, the books
are provided with columns with
appropriate headings, so that if
each item of receipts is entered as
it is "received in its appropriate col-j
umu, it is only a question of additou ;
to get at either the financial or
1 statistical results. i
I After the form of the books and I
I the blanks were designed.came the!
work of getting them printed and
bound. The resources of the vari-1
ous printing offices of the city, pai-'
ticularly of of the Star and Gazette
company, were called into requisi
tion. The result was that the books
and blanks for all the counties
were ready and in perfect order for
delivery in time. Those for West
Hawaii were the first to be sent.
They went by the Manna I.oa on
Christmas Day. For the other
three couties outside of Oahu, the
books and blanks were sent on
Monday, December 28. The mag
nitude of the job may be imagined
from the fact that the cases contain
ing the books and blanks for some
of the counties weighed 800 lbs. 1
The books for Oahu county were
turned over to the county officials
