FUIDAY, Al'KIL 28, 18S2.
Oho, among the many desirable
lieneiits that would comu of u city
government fur Honolulu, would bo
the passage of mi ordinance requir
ing all persons intending to build
within certain proscribed limits, to
lirst obtain the consent of the muni
cipal authorities thereto, the applica
tion tor permission to build contain
ing specifications as to lucidity, di
iucusion, and mateiial to be used,
and all other necessary paitieulars.
Tlii", is the system adopted not only
in large cities, but in every consider
able town of the civilized world.
The leasous why Mich a rule is uo
co.ary iire obvious. Wo will men
tion only one or two at present.
Our property owners, who sue put
ting up substantial structures, as a
rule build solidly and safely enough ;
but the time nuty come ore ong,
when somebody will, either through
ignorance or meanness, go to put
ting up buildings with thin walls, or
insuillciiintly braced or fastened
frames, wheieby at some ungual ded
moment may come a crash and a
sacrifice of human life. It' is noi.
long since we had a very practical
illustration of this idea. Ventillation
is also jiu important consideration in
putting up a building for-human
habitation, in a tropical climate es
pecially. Now because A or B aic
ignorant of banilary laws, it ought
not to follow that they shall lie al
lowed for many-making purposes to
erect a lot of human hives to become
In-ceding places for fever anil hot
Lcds of malaria.
A City Uoverimiaat.
Mn. Emron: In your issue of
Tuesday you suggest the importance
of laying before the Assembly " a
cat chilly considered plan for a city
government." It appears to me that
every intelligent and thoughtful man
must agree with you in this matter,
particulatly if he has witnessed the
results of city governments in other
countries. Not that I think Hono
lulu lich enough to afford, or huge
enough to need, a paid municipality.
A Board comprised of Ave gentle
men would be' sullieient. One of the
live should act as mayor or chair
man. The chairman should not have
a deliberative vote, but a casting
vote only. It ought not to be a
dilUcnty matter to find among the
citizens of Honolulu live gentlemen
of intelligence, patriotism, and com
mon sense who would be willing to
servo without pay. Tho regular
meetings of the Board or City Coun
cil might be held in the evening, so
as not to intcifcre with tho business
engagements of the day time. The
Board would lequhe one active and
cllicient oflicer. This ollleer should
not be a member, but tho paid ser
vant, of the Council. He would act
as Secretary, Inspector, and General
This, in biief, is my idea of a city
government adapted to the pieseut
requirements of Honolulu. Some
thing similar c.ists in other cities
that could bo named, and woiksvery
satisfactorily. A Citizkx.

A peddler's license coers illicit

as injurious and unnecessary in this

numerous as to supply all the wants
