NO SIDE ISSUES.
The attitude of Governor Carter
and the Senate toward all legisla
tion that will in any way block the
expeditious transaction of business
at the special session for the relief
of the country is to be commended.
The, country is in no mood for legis
lative farce comedy. There are
many and various laws that could
well be placed upon our statute
books. But there is nothing so im
portant to the general business pub
lic just now as a quick and effective
solution of the financial dilemma.
Gentlemen who hope to force
even important bills to the front, re
sulting in impeding financial legis
lation, will not gain favor with the
business and industrial interests of
the Territory, cither for themselves
or for their measures. If the coun
try was not wholly agreed that the
special session should have been
called, it is at any. rate agreed that
there is important work to be done
now that the Legislature is con
vened. Even so important a matter as
county government should give the
right of way. The friends' of de
centralization should not allow their
zeal to prejudice their case, or by
untimely action lose the support of
the half-hearted who may be in
It is natural that this Island
should manifest the strongest favor
for county government. Its posi
tion and relation to the central
power makes it a fertile field for
dissatisfaction with the old central
ized system. It is creditable at all
times for the representatives of this
Island to stand out strongly for self
government. But there is a wrong
time to force the issue and a right
time. The first business before the
special session is financial business,
and it should be met and settled re
gardless of other issues.
While the interests of this Island
demand a county law, they demand
also a working and solvent financial
scheme for the Territory. The
Governor will be backed by the
Senate in his determination to ex
clude interfering issues. The peo
ple will back the Senate.
PRICE OF SUGAR.
The Bulletin of March 26th, on
the recent rise in the price of sugar,
says that the quotation 01 3.07
means $73.40 per ton. While this
is true it should be borne in mind
that this is the price at which Cuban
sugar sells in New York after pay
ing a duty. The planters of Ha
waii do not get this price for sugar,
In their contract with the sugar
trust, one-tenth of a cent a pound,
equal to $2.00 per ton, is deducted
for sugar delivered at New York;
and three eighths of a cent per
pound, equivalent to $7.50 per ton,
is deducted for sugar delivered at
San Francisco. This is an arbitrary
deduction and is practically a gift
to the trust for its condescension in
buying our sugar.
Under the Cuban reciprocity
treaty the injustice of this deduc
tion is still more keenly felt. For
it reduces still more the advantage
over Cuban sugar formerly held by
Hawaiian sugar. The Cuban
planters now enjoy a reduction of
twenty per cent on the tariff. He
does not have to submit to a deduc
tion from the market price and his
geographical position enables him
to deliver his sugar in New York
at a much less cost for freight than
the Hawaiian planter. All this re
duces very considerably the advan
tage gained by free entry of our

Islands after about two years of
strenuous effort. He mentioned
the fact that there is a Road Board
in Hilo which should be counted
upon to fill in the approaches to
such a structure after it had been
completed at so great an expense to
the taxpayers. He remarked that
considerable time had gone by since
the completion of the bridge, but
that the Road Board had as yet
failed to come forward, and ex
pressed the fear that the inynah

His proposition was greeted with a
storm of applause.
Sheriff Andrews being the only
representative of the Road- Hoard
present stated that they were wait

King street should be secured be

proposed to cut down King street
and fill in the approach. When it
was pointed out that a cut could be
made in Bridge street, Mr. Andrews
said it was too dusty to cart the dirt
along the street.
P. Peck added to the seriousness
of the situation. He called atten

the Pitman street bridge, owing to
the heavy traffic at present going
over it nnd predicted a smash if the
new bridge was not soon opened to

Governor Carter stated this morn
ing that it was altogether a question
for the public to decide which of the
items named could be most con
veniently dispensed with.
Mr. Carter drew attention to the
fact that the schedule of cuts prepar
ed for submission to the Legislature
was based on the income of the
Territory for the period of eighteen
months, a period which contains
one wet and two dry financial seasons
of six mouths each.
In the figuring of the twelve
months' proportion on the eighteen
months' basis, thereby getting one
wet season (that of November,
when the big returns are due) and
only one dry season of six months,
the average income per month is
necessarily somewhat larger.
Therefore, conducing the Gov
ernment on the twelve months' pro
portion of the eighteen months'
estimate, a dry financial season thus
being left out of the reckoning,
there will be something over to
devote to something cut out of the
estimate 011 the eighteen months'
"Wether the public would prefer
the baud to the militia or the Gov
ernment doctors and hospital sub
sidies to either or both," said the
Governor, "is for further considera
tion and discussion."
Speaking of the cuts in the De
partment of Public Instruction, Mr,
Carter said that
tion that the truant officers be dis-1
pensed with. j
In these hard times, when it was '
a matter of getting along with as '
little as possible, it was doubtful if'
it were wise to force children to
attend school. Let the money '
available be devoted to those who '
were desirous of attending.
Then the janitors of school build-1
ings could be dispensed with and
the children themselves might care 1
for their houses of instruction.
