The Board of Supervisors convened on Friday morning, December
15th, to consider the budget of expenditures for the ensuing fiscal year,
as required by the county act.
All members, excepting Supervisor" Woods and Shipmau, were pres
ent at 10 a. m. A number of communications and petitions were read
and placed on file. B. H. Brown, Jr., asked that his salary as janitor of
Fireman's Hall be increased to $40 was passed to be taken tip with the
budget. W. M. Kulaiwaa applied for n position in the office of the
County Clerk, which was referred to that official for report.
Desha offered a resolution appropriating 510 per month lor electric
lights for the use of the county band. Passed.
The Secretary of the Board of Health forwarded copies of the health
regulations recently passed by that body regarding expectoration, garbage
rind sprinkling of clothes. The same were placed on file.
The communication from County Attorney Williams, wherein he
maintains that his office is not subject to the supervision of the Super
visors, and therefore he is not required to make any official report to the
Board, was taken up and discussed. Supervisor Fernandez moved that
in all of its official actions hereafter ie Board ignore the County Attor
ney's office. Upon .1 vole Desha, Fernandez and Moir favored this
action, and Kalniwaa and MakuaLuie voted against the proposition.
Mr. Fernandez then moved that the approval heretofore given of the
appointment of Noa W. Aluli as Deputy County Attorney be revoked.
Upon putting this motion, the Chair announced the vote to be the same
as on the first motion, and the Clerk was instructed tn notify Mr. Aluli
that his services were no longer necessary.
Supervisor Fernandez, from the Police Committee, presented a unani
mous report of the investigations of that committee into the charges
agqiust Deputy Sheriff Rickard. They state they have examined a
large number ol witnesses, aim present a transcript ot me evidence which
was nlnced on the secret file. Thcv recommend that Mr. Rickard be
summoned to appear before the Board and be given an opportunity to
defend himself. The report was apted without delay and the Clerk
was instructed to issue a summons.
A petition signed by 64 residents, voters of Hamakua, expressed their
confidence in Deputy Sheriff Rickard and asked that other witnesses be
summoned to testify. The petition 'nl be considered together with the
Supervisor Kalaiwaa called attention to the absence of a clock, stating
that he could not tell when it was dinner time. After receiving the
budget as prepared by the Clerk Pita and the Deputy Treasurer Ryan,
the Board took a recess until the afternoon.
Upon reconvening, at 1:30 o'clock, the Board resolved itself into a
Committee of the Whole for the consideration of the proposed budget
of expenses for the year 1906. Mr. .Moir was chosen Chairman and the
different items of the budget ware cicusscd at length.
The estimates which are based upon the expenditures for the past six
months, are substantially as follows:
Estimated cash on hand, Dec. 31, 1905, $10,719. To this is to be
added the amount due from the Territory between January 1st and

ing to Siso.ooo. making a total of $189,219. The police salaries for the
ensuing year, provided no increase is made in the police force, is estimat
ed at 512,000, leaving a oaianceio me creuu 10 us cxpenueu utiriug wie
year, approximately $177,219.
The estimated expenditures for the year 1906 includes: Salaries fixed

total of $69,500, which deducted from the estimated income of $177,219,
leaves a surplus approximately of $107,719.
It was provided that the several items estimated and passed by the
Board and the estimated surplus and appropriations may at any time be
changed by the Board. The budget was then passed without opposition,
and the Board adjourned until Saturday morning.

Court Refuses a Recount.
Albany, N. Y., Dec. 13. The State Court of Appeals has decided
against Hearst in the ballot recount case, involving the election of the
Mayor of New York City.
Hearst alleged fraud in the election held November 71I1. McClellan
(Dem.) received 228,651 votes; Hearst (Ind.) received 225,160 votes,
and Ivins (Rep.) 137,049 votes.
The campaign was early marked by remarkable demonstrations of
enthusiasm for Hearst, independent candidate for mayor on a municipal
ownership ticket and a war against Tammany rule. It was generally
conceded that Ivins, the Republican candidate for mayor, had no chance
to win. Alter a campaign on these hues, the wealth and power of
the city backing McClellan, and the poletariat backing Hearst, Mc
Clellan was declared elected' Tammany appears to be losinc its influence.
Jerome, an independent, anti-boss candidate wasclected district attorney,
and Hearst, without an organization, after a brief campaign, received
within a few thousand votes as many as Tammany, with all its powers,
and with three tickets in the field. Hearst drew his strength almost
equally from the two old parties. McCIellnn's vote is some 110,000
smaller than it was two years ago, while Ivins's is about 125,000 less
than Low's in the same election.

National Cane Shredders,
The Supervisors convened Saturday morning, and after the usual
formality of prayer and reading the minutes of the previous day, the
Board proceeded to take up the charges against Deputy Sheriff Wm. J.
Rickard, Attorney Carl S.Smith appearing for the defendent.
An opportunity was given Deputy Sheriff Rickard to enter his plea,
but the attorney presented a formal pleading in the form of a legal de
murrer. Some of the Supervisors did not know the nature of this pro
ceeding, and Supervisor Desha objected to the defendant having counsel,
stating that he could say whether he was "guilty" or otherwise. Smith
pressed his motion, which in effect was a request that more explicit
charges be furnished the defendant, so that he might know what he was
called upon to answer.
Smith had occupied the floor for perhaps half an hour, giving his ver
sion of what the law meant and attributing to the supervisprs the func
tions of judge and jury, sitting in trial of his client. Turning to Super
visor I'eruaiuiez, ne asueu: onppu.ii; you, mi. vjui:ivi-ui, nut
charged with being unfit for office as a member of this Board or as a
member of the House ot Representatives, couiu you answer sucu a gen
eral accusation?" Growing red, Fernandez retorted "It would be up to
me to defend myself. I do not care what charge you brought against
me, it would be up to me to defend myself." Then with a dramatic
wave of the hand, the counsel exclaimed, "Then I say heaven help you,
if vou were required to defend yourself."
This was tio much for Fernandez who jumped to his feet and appealed
to the chair, that he did not want to be insulted by the counsel for the
defense. Moir called Fernandez to order, stating that Smith had the
floor and for a time, it seemed there would be a scene. Reverend
Desha raised his voice in protest against the remarks of counsel, stating
that he wanted to see both sides have a hearing, but he did not care to
listen to advice. "The Board has a County Attorney lo give them legal
advice, althouerh. to be sure, we have decided to ignore him in the fu
ture. The attorney's remarks comparing us with the nine judges who
decided witchcraft cases a few centuries ago, has no place hi this hall. I
After Mr. Rickard has put in his plea and defense, then Mr. Smith can
make his speech, but this is not the proper time for it." 1
Fernandez threatened to leave the room, if the defendant's lawyer 1
continued to take up the time of the Board. Chairman Moir finally
