Matson Buys Another Steamer.
It is reported that while East Capt. William Matson purchased a big
steamer which is now on the Atlantic side of the United States. The
steamer is said to be 400 feet in length, or eighteen feet longer than the
Enterprise. She carries 200 tons more freight, and has a speed of 12
knots per hour, while the Enterprise is a 9-knot vessel. The new
steamer, which saw service in Cuban waters under the Spanish flag, was
sold at a Marshal's sale for $45,650 to Capt. Matson, who estimates that
he will have to expend three times ms purchase price in fitting her as
an oil burner and tor active service. Her machinery is in excellent con
dition, and the necessary improvements will be completed and the vessel
ready for service by January 1, 1906. It is the intention to place the
new vessel on the, San Francisco-Honolulu run, returning to the coast
by way of Hilo. The S. S. Enterprise will be kept on her usual route
between San Francisco and Honolulu, touching at Hilo each way. This
will give the islands a regular two weeks' service between here and the
coast, and be able to furnish quick and regular transportation for the
local fruit trade.
Capt. Matson also contracted for the purchase of another steamer for
the Pacific Coast Oil and Transportation Co., in which he is heavily in
terested. He is now general traffic manager for the Pacific Coast for the
Standard Oil Co., into which the former company has been merged.
New Public School Superintendent.
Honolulu, Oct- 27 W. II. Babbitt succeeds Jas. C. Davis as Superin
tendent of the Board of Education.
The last mail brought the announcement of the resignation of Su
perintendent Davis after a heated interview with Governor Carter over
the question of administration of the department of Public Instruction,
and the latter's summary acceptance of Davis' offer. It is understood
that the Governor was not satisfied with the disposal of a complaint
against a teacher at the Kahakuloa school, Maui, having personally ob
tained information which led him to believe the Superintendent had not
fully investigated the matter. W. H. Babbitt, the new appointee, is a
young man not over thirty-fivc.a close personal friend and relative of the
Governor. He came to the islands in 1896 as an instructor in Latin and
civics at Oahu college, which position he held for three years. He is
at present a trustee of that institution. Mr. Babbitt has had considera
ble experience in various institutions of learning. He prepared for col
lege at Phillips Academy at Andovcr, Mass , remaining there from 1886
to 1 89 1. In 1 89 1 he entered Williams College, graduating therefrom in
1892 with an A. B. degree. From 1895 to 1896 he taught mathematics
and gymnastics at Zeigler's Preparatory School for boys at Newbury,
New York. He married a daughter of J. O. Carter, and since he gave up
his work as a teacher, he has been connected with the Von-IIamm
Young Co. Ltd., Honolulu. He is creatlv interested in snorts nml

The Governor on Borrowed Money.
In response to the letter of the Hilo Chamber of Commerce regarding
the statement of the Governor's intention not to borrow up to the full
amount of the loan money appropriated by the last legislature and
wherein it urged road extensions as Territorial matters, Governor Carter
has written at length to that body explaining his position with reference
to the loan fund and its expenditure.
He recites the history of the present bonded indebtedness of the
Territory, which, with this three-quarters of a million ol dollars, the
Tenitory will have exhausted fifty per cent, of her borrowing capacity.
It also means that the Territory will be paving nearly $500 a day lor
interest, with no provision for meeting the same. He says: "It did not
appear as if either the people of the Territory or their representatives
felt any responsibility as to the debt they were creating. It was easier
to let posterity do the worrying."
"The amount of menus thru tln nnmiiv nr tim 'rWriinr.. ,uc...,... ,i
---. ..... u....vt ... vi. w av.i,i,wi ,jw;nv,33v;a UK'
pends entirely on the amount that the people will give. One of my
objections to the present form of county government has always been
that it did not carry with it the right to levy a tax. In this way an ex
travagant administration of a county is not felt by the taxpayers and
does not react against such an administration. On the other hand, an
economical set of officials who reduce the expenditures and relieve the
taxpayers receive no credit for such a course. This, to my mind, tends
to put a premium on extravagance. The icply to this, that the county
act limits the expenditures to the income, is insufficient, as experience
will show that such a limit cannot be enforced.
"Many of the arguments brought forward in regard to this loan ques
tion seem to miss the point entirely, and dwell rather on the necessity
of the work contemplated than upon the wisdom of making an expen
diture with borrowed money.
"There seems to have been an indefinite plan that the Territory should
build new roads and the counties repair and maintain the old ones. But
no definition has yet been laid Vlown as to what is new road work.
Everybody has a different idea in regard to it.
"I note you, too, make a distinction between work on "new" and
"old" roads, and I would be very much obliged if you would give me a
definition of what you consider a new road, for I have had all kinds of
arguments presented to me in regard to this question, and it is often
apparent that the desire for the appropriation molds the argument. You
know, a shovelful of dirt taken out of the gutter and thrown on the
road can be considered as "new" in the sense that it has never been
"It was argued during the last session that certain districts with a
small population and long distance would require assistance in their
road work. And there was considerable talk of the Territory maintain
ing the belt roads around the islands as Territorial. But nothing could
be done to n rirtniiiv ti'tili nv r-nrtoi.ii.. nt ,i.n, .:..... ...i

by your own recommendations), I have concluded that it is probably a
sounder course to ignore the classifications under Islands, as contained
in nci o, aim weigu me uiiierent appropriations purely from the point
of whether it is businesslike and sound to borrow money for such an ex
penditure, and in a general way undertake only those works which pro
duce a direct revenue or affect the health and commerce of the commu
nity, in addition to buildings for educational purposes. In my opinion,
it is not right to expend many of the small appropriations thrown into
that bill as a sop to several of the districts or to carry out this idea of
giving definite proportions to each island. When the bonds fall due, in
many such cases there will be nothing left to show the expenditure. We
have no right to ask posterity to pay for any public work or building
that will not be in existence when the bonds mature, and thus leave
them to pay for something the use of which they will not enjoy.
"If the readjustment I have indicated be carried out in the present
loan of $750,000.00, it cm be made to include the Hilo Sewer System,
$15,000.00, and the Hilo High School, $20,000.00, provided we leave
out the purchase of Pauoa Water, which is, of course, a direct revenue
producing item and would, if we followed our definition strictly, come
within the items to be expended, but in order to keep within that limit
this item of $80,000.00 must be left out. In doing this, I certainly ex
pect the administration to receive the hearty support of the Hilo Cliam-
ui;i ui vuiuuivjiLC.
