THE WEEKLY HILO TRIBUNE, HIM), HAWAII, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1905.
PASS POLICE PAY-ROLLS
(Continued from Pngc Four)
Supervisor Mnkunknnc offered n
resolution appropriating from the
General Fund $200 for the Volcano
road repairs as provided tit the last
meeting. The resolution already
passed provides that there should
be $600 appropriated or $200 a
mouth for three mouths.
Kalaiwna saw no reason for this
second resolution as the original
resolution was still in force. The
motion was carried.
At the request of Supervisor
Woods, Superintendent of Public
Instruction was permitted to appear
before the Board of Supervisors.
Mr. Babbitt urged upon the Board
the necessity of appointing two
truant officers, one in South Kona
and the other in Hamakua. The
schools were scattered and the dis
tance apart so great that the
regular police officers could not
attend to rounding up truant
children of school age. He also
made anvappeal for the construction
of a trail connecting the Kaiwiki
school with the main road. School
Inspector C. E. King explained the
difficulty which arose out of a
relocation of the Kaiwiki road after
the building of the school. At
present teachers and scholars are
required to pass over private prop
erty to reach the school. The owner
desired to close up the roadway,
which had been macadamized at
his own expense. Inspector King
suggested that either a new trail
should be constructed connecting
the school and Kaiwiki road, or
some arrangement made with Peter
Silva, the owner of the present
roadway for right of way over his
land. A new trail would require
the construction of a bridge.
The clerk was directed to call
the attention of the Superintendent
of Public Works to a discrepency
in the valuation of certain road
property as shown by his receipt
which did not agree with the
inventory on file with the Board.
Fernandez moved an adjourn
ment at n o'clock till 8:30 Friday
l'RIDAY, DKCKMIiKK 8TII.
The Board convened promptly
at 8:30 with all members in their
scats. After reading the minutes
of Thursday morning, the Board
proceeded to hear the reading of
reports and communications.
Treasurer Lalakea asked for $2.
50 for postage every month, which
request was referred to the Finance
County Auditor Maguirc stated
he had appointed John Kakae as
clerk in his office.
Earnest Kaapuni, messenger,

Wm. Kino resigns as interpreter

pointment as second assistant coun
County Attorney Williams made
written report on Section 63 of the
County Act, relating to the prepa
ration of a budget by the Board of
Supervisors. He holds that the
law was mandatory and the Board
are required to meet on December
15th to prepare such a budget.

used. The Ahualoa Homestead
road for a distance of four miles is
being put in condition. The road
way through Houokaa is being top
dressed and will soon be completed.
The Committee on Internal Im
provements made a special report
on the question of dispensing with
the awning in front of the County
Offices, which obscured the light
ing of these rooms. They rcc( m
meuded the substitution of a roller
shade in front of the office.

specily the purpose tor which it is
drawn, when accrued, and by whom
approved. A new form has been
designed covering the requirments
and it was ordered that two styles
of warrants in different colors be
printed and put in force after Jan.
Shipmau took exception to the
County Attorney's opinion relative
to the sitting of the Supervisors on
December 15th in order to prepare
a budget for the next current year's
expenditures. He believes this
matter could be left to a Committee
of the Board, without necessitating
a meeting of the entire body. For
his part he desired to be excused
from attendance on December 15th.
Desha thought the Board could
not go contrary to the law, and the
opinion of the County Attorney
that the Board was compelled to
meet on Dec. 15 fb' this purpose.
The Board would sit during the
month to bjr the impeachment
cases, and h believed this budget
of proposed expenditures could be
passed at the same time on Decem
Chairman Moir said he believed
that a majority of the Board could
consider the proposed budget with
out calling a special meeting on the
fifteenth. The Clerk had prepared
already a budget, and he thought
the Board could consider the mat
ter at the present time, pass the
budget and subsequently file the
report on the 15th. He believed
that would comply with the law
and save the expense of holding
another meeting in the middle of
Shipmau said some of the mem
bers appeared to have an erroneous
opinion regarding the budget re
quired to be made by the Board on
the 15th of December. It was not
an appropriation bill but an esti
mate of expences for the coming
year, which the Board might or
might not follow thereafter.
A general discussion of the sub
ject developed in which Supervisors
Fernandez, Makuakane and Desha
took a prominent part. Fernandez
wanted the budget prepared by the
Clerk, brought in and acted upon
at once as suggested by Supervisor
The committee report against the
employment of special truant offi
cers and recommend that the police
department co-operate with the
public schools of the various dis-
I tricts. Bills for police telephones
and various police salaries were
Makuakane as the third member.
Rev. Desha on behalf of the
Health Committee asked for further
time in which to report on the
garbage question now under in
vestigation. Shipmau said Kau wanted to make
request for the use of county
prisoners on the building of a
number of stone culverts. The
district would pay the salaries of
prison guards out of their road tax
fund and take care of the prisoners
in a brand new jail, which had
been built in Kau and never used.
He desired to build the culverts as
economically as possible. Fernan
dez doubted the right of the county
to transfer the prisoners to various
districts as they were in the custody
of the Territory nnd the county
had no control over their move
ments. He did not believe it proper
to expend road money for prison
guards, who were being paid
salaries out of the General Fund.
The question was referred to the
County Attorney for a legal

Two dollars was appropriated to
Fernandez for notarial fees ex
pended in'the execution of a lease
of premises to be used by the
Hnmakua road department.
Kalaiwaa called attention to the
fact that each of the county officers
had been allowed amounts ranging
from $40 to $65 per month for
clerical hire, and offcrred a resolu
tion providing for an increase in
the deputy treasurer's pay. The
resolution went over for consider
ation with the consideration of the
budget on Dec. 15th.
After recess, Supervisor Fernan
dez presented the report of the
Police Committee, recommending
payment of salaries of police ap
pointed by Sheriff Keolauui and by
the Board of Supervisars. Fernan
dez explained that after canvassing
a number of business men of Hilo,
the Committee had decided to re
commend payment of both sets of
police. Shipmau said he would
like to see both sets of police paid
but the question was whether the
Board could legally do it. Chair
man Moir felt similarly disposed,
but he believed the matter should
be taken to the supreme court, to
determine the right of the Board in
