FRIDAY, JUNK 25, 1880.
MR. WHITNEY'S LETTER.
The following is lion. 11. IM.
"Whitney's letter i cad in tlio Lcgis
Inttuo yesterday. It lias appealed
in the Advertiser with two impor
tant misprints of figures, SI, 000 in
stead of 810,000 being given twiee
as the appropriation for money
IIo.v. J. S. Wai.kuu, President of
the Legislative Assembly.
iY: Statements having been
made by the Minister of the Inte
rior nnd the l'ostinnstcr-Geneial
during the debate in the Legislative
Assembly on Monday last on the
appropiiation for tho Postal Service,
which appear to relied on my ad
ministration if not on my honesty, I
beg to make n brief statement to
you, mid tlirotigli.you to the Legis
lative Assembly so far as the dis
etission refers to my administration
ns nn olllcer of the Government.
According to tho published re
ports a motion was made by the
Minister of tho Interior to increase
the item of incidentals for tho Postal
Service from 514,000 to S22.000,
the reason assigned by him for this
change being that the latter amount
was required to pay off certain
claims incurred by it piior to April
1, 1880. Kelativc to this, I have to
say that every bill presented for
payment prior to March 31, 1880
(witii a single exception referred to
below), was settled, and a balance of
cash lemained on hand that day of
81101.89 in the General Post Oillcc
and 82,239.f8 in tho Postal Money
Order branch, which amounts were
paid into the Government Treasury.
On inquiring at the General Tost
Oillcc as to what gave rise to the
Ministerial assertion referred to, I
was informed that owing to a pro
posed change in the system of set
tling the accounts of the country
Tost Olllces, about 80,000 will bo
required to pay salaries, mail car
riers on the other islands, and for
sundry bills for thu current expenses
of the Postal Servico, which claims
have been presented since April 1st,
and which formerly, ever since the
Postal Servicc'has been in operation,
have been passed over for settlement
to the succeeding biennial period, as
is customary in the United States
Postal Service aiid that of Great Bri
tain, after which ours is modeled.
Karly in March, I was notified from
the Depaitment of Interior to have
the Post Olllco accounts closed
promptly on the 31st of March, and
my report, as well as accounts handed
into tho Depaitment of the Interior
by April 7th, otherwise the accounts
would not be included in the Treas
ury report to the Legislature. You,
as Auditor-General, may remember
that the Post Ofllcc financial state
ment for the last quaitcr of the
biennial period of 188 1 was excluded
from tho Finance Hcport to the
Legislature of that year, because it
was handed in a day or two later
than the time set. To avoid a ic
eurrence of this, my statement and
lcnort were made up promptly on
April 1st, and passed in to the
Minister on the 5th. It will thus bo
seen that no bills or claims received
at the Post Ollicc prior to Marcli
31st wore left unsettled, and that the
work of the biennial period just
closed was completed in accordance
witii strict orders from the Minister,
and also in accordance witii custom
ary usage here and abroad. The
statement made in the Assembly by
Mr. Kaulukou that a safe had been
purchased by mo two years ago and
was not paid for, lias no truth in it.
Two Postmasters Mr. Tiirton of
Lalmina, and Mr. Meinecko at Kan
had cacli a safe, which they
wished to sell to tho Post Oillcc for
the money order business. 1 re
plied that "when the next Appropria
tion Bill was passed provision'woiild
probably be made for purchasing
them if they proved, after inquiry,
to be what was wanted for the ser
vice. Kcfcrcuce was also made In tho
Assembly toabilluf about $1,200
owing by the Post Office for work
done by the American Hank Note
Company of New York. This bill,
which was received in 1881, was, by
oversight, Hied away inside of the
letter which accompanied it, and
was entirely overlooked and forgot
ten until after my leaving the postal
servico, in April, when a letter from
the linn to mo called attention to its
not having been paid, and on exam
ination it was found to be correct.
The fact that I had been in frequent
correspondence with the flrin during
the past two years, in which 1 had
paid them sovoral bills for work
done since, and no allusion had been
made by them to this bill, may fully
account for tho circumstances at
tending its non-payment. On ascer
taining that it was still unpaid, I
immediately wrote to the firm, stat
ing the above circumstances, apolo
gizing for its non-payment, and
assuring tliom that it would soon bo
settled by my successor in ollicc.
My attention has also been called
to tho item of 810,000 insetted in
the Appiopriation bill for money
orders, and 1 have been asked what is
tho necessity for this item. It was
not in the estimates for tho current
biennial period furnished by mo to
tho Minister of tho Interior. I omit
ted it because- tho nionoy order busi
ness is now paying its own way, and
ought to yield a rovenuo to tho Gov
ernment of between 85,000 and
80,000 during the present biennial
period. If it bo asserted that high
rates of exchange may render an
appropriation necessary, I answer
that so long as tho business is kept
on the gold basis on which I left it
no assistance from tho Treasury will
bo required, as gold will always
secure exchange for money order
business without co3t to the Govern
ment. If tho money older business
cannot be maintained by the pre
sent administration without a bi
ennial appropriation of 810,000,
the sooner It is closed the better.
Had tho gold basis been adopted in
188 1 for the money order business,
as was strongly urged by me, there
would have been no loss attending it
during tlio prevalence of high pre
miums on exchange. Hut, by per
emptory orders from tho Minister of
the Interior, 1 was forbidden to
make any change, and the silver
basis was adhered to, resulting in a
loss to tho public Treasury of about
SO, 000 in one year, for which His
Majesty's Ministers alone arc re
sponsible. In connection witii these
items I may be permitted to refer lo
a matter in which tlio last Legisla
tive Assembly took special action,
aud through a committee directed
me to carry out their wishes to pro
vide more street letter boxes, for
the purchase of which tlio sum of
8500 was specially appropriated in
1881 (the item of Post Olllco inci
dentals having been increased by
that amount for this purpose), with
instructions that it should bo spent
in the purchase of letter boxes to be
set up on Hawaii, Maui and Oaliu.
The wishes of tlio Legislature of
1881 have not been carried out, not
from any want of attention on my
part, but because the permission to
send for them was not granted, I
having called Mr. Gulick's attention
to it once, if not twice. Not only
have no new street boxes been ob
tained, but I understand that the
twelve boxes which I erected in 1881
in this city have been torn down by
order of the Minister and stowed
away as useless trash. These boxes
have proved a very great assistance
in collecting letters for the mails,
and during the hi9t two years more
than 37,000 letters have been col
lected from the twelve strcot boxes
in this city, or an average of over
3,000 letters from each. If these
boxes were introduced and set up
at all central points on all the mail
carrier routes throughout the group,
not only would it be a great conve
nience to many poor people, but to
all who livo at a distance from the
main roads and Post Olllces, and
assist largely to increase correspon
dence, and consequently the reve
nue of the Postal Service, which is
chiefly for the convenience of the
people. Having promised the spe
cial committee of the Legislature
of 1881 to provide these street letter
boxes, it seems proper for mo to
make this statement and to show
distinctly that no reason can be
given bj' me for not obeying their
request, except the refusal of the
Minister of the Interior to sanction
tho expenditure, especially as tlio
Post Olllco had ample funds, having
paid into the Government Treasury
early in April the sum of 83, Ml. -17,
which were tho surplus earnings of
the bureau for the year ending
March 31, 1880, the entire receipts
for that year from all sources hav
ing been 850.050.18. I have the
honor to be, sir, your obedient
servant, II. M. "Wihtxiiv.
