THE NEEDS OF HAWAII
TERSELY SET FORTH.
The Young Men's Republican Club of Hilo Make Val
uable Recommendations to Members From East
Hawaii County Law and Appropriations Desired-
Economy in Administrative Bureaus Demanded.
The Young Men's Republican j
Club have submitted a budget of
recommendations to the lcglisla
ttirc, which are the result of a very
careful canvass of the District, mid
which reflect the wishes of that
body in the'various precincts within
the Eirst Representative District.
The recommendations were passed
Wednesday night nt an adjourned
meeting of the Club from the pre
vious evening and are in the form
of a petition addressed to the legis
lator of the First Representative
District. In order to ascertain just
what was needed or desired in the
outlying districts, the legislative
committee, consisting of V. Geo.
Kaihcnui, chairman, and members
I. K. Ray, John Bohiienherg,
Joseph Oliva and H. Kendall, ap
pointed sub-committees of three
members in each of the eleven pre
cincts. The committee's report,
which was adopted Wednesday
night with few changes, is the re
sult of the expressions of views
The Young Men's Republican
Club state that they fully realize
the depleted condition of the Terri
torial treasury and have asked for
only such appropriations as are of
pressing need. They believe there
has been extravagance in the em
ployment of so many clerks in the
departments and bureaus of the
government, and recommend that
in the apportionment of salaries,
each office should be investigated
and only such an amount appro
priated as will insure a competent
and proper administration of the
At the meetings of Tuesday and
Wednesday night, a clause in the
report recommending the abolish
ment of forest reserves along the
Volcano road was stricken out, and
a paragraph asking that Congress
be memorialized to extend the
United States Imtl Laws to Ha
waii was voted down. There was
a divided sentiment on the latter
proposition, but Norman Lyman,
who was opposed to the suggestion,
had a host of stalwarts employed
on the Road Board who followed
his lead in opposing the proposi
tion, which was lost by a vote of
ti to 12.
The report as finally adopted is
to thr legislators of thk
First Representative Dis
trict, Territoryop Hawaii:
The Young Men's Republican
Club of Hilo herewith submits for
your consideration at the next
session of the Leghlature the
following recommendations and
i. We favor a County Bill in its
broadest sense, but simple in con
struction, and would suggest that it
be so framed that each subject shall
constitute a separate and distinct
2. Wc favor two counties for the
Island of Hawaii in 'accordance
with the existing representative
3. We favor electing by ballot
the Boards of Supervisors or County
4. We favor the County control
of public schools, believing that
under County control they would
be raised to a higher standard of
efficiency and at a much less ex
pense than at present.
5. We favor the County control
of health and sanitary measures.
6. Wc favor County or municipal
control of the public water works
and public parks.
7. We favor the establishment of
county government as soon as pos
sible after the passage of a County
Act, not later than the first of July
of this year.
RECOM M EN NATIONS.
I. We recommend that the laws
governing the election of buildings
form, extended to Hilo.
2. We recommend that the pave
ment on nil main public roads be
not less than twenty feet in width
and that all culverts be the width
of the pavement.
3. We recommend that a high
school be established in Hilo. (See
4- Wc recommend that settlers
taking up homesteads be allowed
to construct roads in accordance
with the plans of the government
surveyor and that the value of the
work done be applied to the pur
chase of their laud.
5 We recommend the taking
over by the government of the
l'uueo water system and the estab
lishment of fire hydrants there; and
that the government take over the
Puueo and Villa Franca roads.
6. Wc recommend that the gov
ernment put its city property in a
sanitary condition by filling in the
same and straightening and widen
ing the present (Waiolann) c?nal.
7. We recoti mend that the Hilo
sewerage system be completed.
8. Wc recommend that the
Legislature petition Congress to
place a bounty on all cofTee grown
in the insular possessions of the
9. Wc recommend the estab
lishing of a law for merchandise
10. We recommend repealing
the present Sunday law and enact
ing a mote liberal law to meet the
11. We favor an act regulating
the speed of automobiles.
12. We recommend the appoint
ment of a pouudrnaster for Laupa-
13. Wc recommend that the
laud known as Kaiuehe. near
Cocoanut Island, be set aside for a
public park and recreation ground,
and that the same disposition be
made of Cocoanut Island.
14. We recommend amending
the citizen labor law to the effect,
that in no case can any other than
citizens or those eligible to become
citizens, be employed in any manner
on public works or in the manu
facture of material used in public
15. We favor an act granting
licenses for the manufacture of
liquors and that the act now in
force regarding the manufacture of
wines be so amended that the
manufacturer will not be compelled
to sell to wholesale dealers.
16. We recommend the appoint
ment of a joint committee from both
houses of the legislature to inquire
into the work and duties of the
heads of departments. Also the
number of clerks employed in each
department, the amount of actual
woik performed and the salaries
paid to each. We believe that
every effort should be used to re
duce the expenses of carrying on
17. In the apportionment of
salaries, we would suggest that
each legislator acquaint himself
with the duties and actual work to
be performed by the person for
whom the salary is appropriated.
18. We recommend that in ap
portioning the taxes, thnt a terri
torial tax be allowed only for the
actual necessity of carrying on the
Territorial portion of the govern
ment and that an equitable distri
bution be made of such taxes.
19. We recommend that there
be no appropriation for a Territorial
band, believing that n band, if
aided, should be a county charge,
provided, however, that if an ap
propriation be made for the Hono
lulu band, a proportionate appro
priation should he made for the
20. We recommend that the
for Honolulu be, in n
law regarding income taxes be so'mnili, $1,000,
amended that corporation income
taxes shall be nsscsscd and the
taxes paid in the Taxation District
where the corporation property is
situated. The income being direct
from the properly, the taxes should
be paid in the district where the
property is located.
21. Wc recommend that all
license fees be paid in the Taxation
District where the business or occu
pation for such license is located.
22. Wc recommend an act lim
iting the authority of the Superin
tendent of Public Works to ex
change lauds. All lauds where the
Valuation is more than $500 should
either be sold at miction, or a com
mittee appointed to appraise the
laud to be sold or exchanged.
23. Wc recommend that all
governinont land be opened for set
tlement ns soon as present leases
expire, having in mind the fact that
a great deal of laud is unfit for
agricultural purposes, yet the graz
ing lands would be an inducement
for settlers to go into remote parts
for the purpose of taking up lands.
24. Wc recommend for this
island the immediate establishment
of a registry office for the record of
conveyances, two offices for this
island according to the present
First Precinct $6,000 for com
pleting the road from Kaola to Ka
iapaua. Second Precinct $10,000 to re-
pair the Volcano road from 6J

for the indigent poor in the District
of Puna, $600.
Of the above herein referred to,
we believe the extension of the
22 mile road to join the new Olaa

(lorcrnor Carter Thinks Company
Hutp not Llred up to Contract.
In an interview icccntly appear
ing in the Honolulu Bulletin,
Governor Carter is reported as
intimating that the Inter-Island
Telegraph have not lived tip to
their part of the crntract, entitling
it to the subsidy of twelve thousand
dollars a year, appropriated by act
of the legislature, approved April
The Governor thought a cheaper
service could be obtained and sug
gested government ownership as n
possible remedy. "The money
which has been spent in subsidiz
ing the wireless company would, I
am informed," says the Governor,
"have enabled the government to
buy, build and own a system be
tween the islands, and the question
is, if it is not cheaper for the gov
ernment to o.vn it. Furthermore
it is a matter of doubt whether the
system, as it is at present con
ducted, is of any great commercial
value, as the messages arc not kept
private. Now anyone can catch a
message as it is telephone overland
from the receiving station."
When interviewed with reference
to the Governor's statement, Man
ager F. J. Cross, of the Inter-Island
Telegraph Co., made the following
"Anyone reading the statements
of the Governor on the wireless
telegraph subsidy as published
might drawn the inference that the
company Is not living up to us
"I can't believe the Governor
intended to convey such an impres
sion. We uave crecteu ana nave
been maintaining the wire telegraph
Hue from Puako, Hawaii, to Hilo
as required by the law under which
we are paid by the Territory. It
is true that from our stations on
the other is'ands and in other sec
tions of Hawaii the messages from
the wireless stations are transmitted
over the telepoone. I doubt very
much whether under government
ownership of an inter-island tele
graph line it would be practicable
to circle each island with a tele
graph wire. The people live at
such magnificent distances that
under any circumstances wire tele
graph to the .present telephone
centers would be the nearest ap
proach that could be made to inde
pendence from the telephone.
"It is not my business to say
how much less the Territorial gov
ernment might use the line without
the test messages. It is fair to the
company, however, to recall that
as a consequence of money appro
priated by the Legislature, the tele
graph company reduced its charges
from twenty cents a word to ten
cents so that the public comes in
for direct benefits under the preseiit
"It is apparent that the Governor
is opposed to the present arrange
ment as a matter of policy and not
because the company has failed to
fulfill its part of the agreement
with the people. We have no ob
jection to more strict regulations.
In fact we are now working under
a regulation that is entirely outside
the law. Days on which the sys
tem is out of order, we are not
paid. There is nothing in the law
requiring this but the Governor
wanted it done and we accepted
the plan. We have no objections.
If the law is liberal in its require
ments from the company we have
not attempted to take advantage of
"I don't know whether the Ter
ritory could put in a new line for
the price of the subsidy or not. I
do know however that you go the
world over and you won't find a
wireless system in dailv operation
that is more accurate or carries
over longer distances every day in
the year. The Atlantic has been
spanned but there, is a great differ
ence between a test and practical
daily work. Our company has a
lot of dearly bought experience on
this point. The experts so-called
sent out to install the system were
supposed to know all nbottt it. But
they didn't know enough to set us
going just at the time when the
public was doubtful, as it always
is of new departure of this character,"
