After prayer by the chaplain,
Rev. W. M. Kalaiwaa, minutes of
the session of January 8 were read
and approved. W. H. Beers was
sworn in as interpreter and the
business of the session was taken
A communication from C. S.
Holloway, superintendent of public
works, was read, acknowledging
the receipt of a copy of resolutions
passed by the Board relative to the
re-appointment of Hamakua Road
Board to expend the remaining tax
road funds. The superintendent
stated that under the county gov
ernment the road board had no
authority to expend any road taxes
excepting funds remaining on de
posit in the treasury prior to April
26; that this money had been all
spent excepting $1, and that it did
not seem to be worth while to re
appoint the board. As there ap
peared to be a discrepancy between
the amount reported in this road
fund by the treasurer and by the
superintendent of public works, the
matter was referred to the finance
commitee for investigation.
In a communication from County
Treasurer Lalakea in reference to a
motion passed by the Board at its
last session, to the effect that the
auditor and treasurer be directed to
advise the Board immediately after
their refusal to pay any claim duly
passed by the Board, of such re
fusal, giving reasons, he replied
that the treasurer had no discretion
in the matter of paying a warrant
issued in due form; and held that
the instructions were applicable to
the auditor only. Shipman thought
the question of refusal to pay war
rants should be decided; Desha
thought the communication suffi
cient; Shipman asked that the mat
ter be referred tq the county
attorney for opinion, and it was so
A communication from C. K.
Maguire, auditor, filing a new bond
for $5000 and asking that the

his former bond, was referred to a
special committee consisting of
Shipman, Desha and Fernandez.
A communication from W. M.
Keolanui, sheriff, was read, asking
for the reconsideration of "bills for
$3.25 and $46.25 for expenses of
police officers attending coroner's
inquest at Honomu. Referred to
A bill from Holmes & Stanley,
attorneys of Honolulu for $250 for
professional services in re test case,
Moir vs. Knell, was presented. The
attorneys maintained that, inasmuch
as the county allowed $250 for Mr.
Moir's attorney in the case, they
should be paid by the county, also.
Shipman stated that bill had
already been considered and pay
ment refused. Communication
The communication from the
Superintendent of Public Works,
Honolulu, giveu in the Tiubunk
last week, asking the return of
horses and buggy formerly used by
Mr. Gere, engineer in charge of
territorial work, afforded a topic for
some discussion. Mr. Desha asked
that the communication be referred
to the county attorney for opinion.
On Mr. Desha's motion a letter
from N. K. layman, road super
visor, on file with the clerk, was
read at this time. Mr. Lyman
stated his position as follows: That
he had received orders from Mr.
Gere1 to forward the team and
buggy to Honolulu, which he had
refused to do; that he had received
a similar order from Mr. Pua,
county clerk, which he had also
ignored, considering it unofficial;
that he informe4 Mr. Gercthat he
could receive orders from the Board
alone, and that Mr. Gere then took
the rig from the county stables
without his knowledge; that he
thereupon replcvined the rig, acting
under the advice of the county
attorney's office, to await the deci
sion of the case aud the action of
the Board; that one of the animals
had received a wound, for which
he had told the stableman respons
ible, and had therefore dismissed
him. Mr. Desha wished to have
the case fully considered. He had
heard it said that he "was at the
bottom of the whole thing" which
was entirely unjust as he knew
nothing about it and was in another
part of the county at the time. Mr.
Desha reviewed the case as he
understood it, Mr. Fernandez ob
jecting to Miis view of the case at
some points. Mr. Desha fully ap
proved of Mr. Lyman's course in
requiring the action of tbe Board.
Mr. Shipman favored waiting for a
settlement of the replevin case by
the court. Mr. Moir stated that at
Mr. Gere's request he had ordered
the rig delivered to him and had so
instructed Mr. Pua, clerk, and in
formed Mr. Lyman. Mr. Fernan
dez, on the ground that the rig
belonged to the Territory and was
subject to recall at any time, moved
that the request of the Superintend
ent of Public Works be granted,
which motion was carried. The
effect of the motion was the with
drawal of the replevin suit aud re
lease of the rig from tbe clutches of
Mr. Desha, during his remarks,
was moved to ask the chair to
instruct the editor of the Herald to
mind his own business aud to re
frain from making any gestures or
other demonstrations. The chair
stated that he supposed that was
understood (with a question mark),
the Herald editor assenting, by
way of confirmation.
A letter from Director of Public
Roads, Washington, D. C, was
read. It asked that the county
clerk act as public roads corres
pondent, and stated that he would
have free use of tbe mails for
official correspondence, stationery,
etc. Fernandez stated that a reso
lution coveriug the case would be
introduced, and the communication
Communication of Joe Teves,
stableman dismissed from the
county stables, asking a hearing,

hibits the dragging of any substance

A reply was read from the county
attorney, to an inquiry made by the
Board relative to the liability of the
county for the expenses incurred iu
tbe transportation of the insane.
The letter stated that the insane
must be sent to Honolulu, that
there was no law making the ex
pense incurred either a territorial
or a county liability, and that as
the Territory had expressed .an
unwillingness to bear such ex
penses, he would recommend that
they be borne by the county.
A communication in regard to
construction of sidewalks, written
by Deputy County Attorney Aluli
was read and ordered placed on file.
