SEVENTY-KIMITII DAY. CONTINUE!!.
Tuesday, August 17lli.
The house resumed at 1 :45.
Consideration of the tax bill in
committee of the whole, Noble Judd
in the chair.
Sec. 18, amending sec. 89, pro
viding public notice being posted
in eight places by the Assessor, of
the time and place at which Ills tax
list shall be open for inspection, was
read and, on motion of Rep. Hay
Sec. ID, amending see. 40, relat
ing to appeals against assessments,
Hep. llayseldcn moved it pass.
Noble Kapcna moved for the cor
rection of a verbal error in Hawaiian,
Rep. "Wight moved an amendment,
so that instead of lodging notice of
appeal with the tax assessor on or
before the 10th day of October, the
appellant shall notify the tax col
lector on or before the 15th day of
December. His object was to have
the appeal board sit after the col
lection of taxes instead of before.
Kep. Haysclden supported lite
the section in the bill, saying the
amendment of Rep. "Wight was a
return to the old law prior to 1882,
which worked badly.
Kep. Thurston discussed the sec
tion and amendment, coming to the
conclusion that the latter would ex
tend the time inconveniently for the
final settlement of taxes.
Rep. Dickey supported theamend
ment, holding that it met such difll
culties as often arose of persons
being taxed after having been pre
Rep. Richardson moved to strike
out the section, because it only
allowed twenty clays' notice, which
was not enough. The section gave
the assessor over three months,
while giving the tax collector only
two months for more work.
Rep. llayseldcn said it was neces
sary that the bcction should pass,
and gave various reasons why so.
Rep. Thurston suggested an
answer to the objections of Rep.
Dieko', saying that if a man was
illegally taxed the taxes could not
be collected from him.
Rep. Dickey referred to the cases
of persons being taxed "who had not
S300 worth of property.
Rep. Thurston said that trouble
in such cases was due to persons
not giving attention to the tax list.
As to Rep. Richardson's objection,
they did not care for the tax collec
tor, but wanted to take care of the
taxpayer. "With certain amend
ments to subsequent sections he was
in favor of this one.
Rep. Aholo took issue with Rep.
Thurston, as the books as amended
by the appeal board went to the
Governor, who gave them to the
collector, so that the latter did not
have two months.
Reps. llayseldcn, "Wight and
Aholo further discussed various
Rep. Richardson withdrew his
motion to strike out, substituting
therefor an amendment from the
10th to the 5th of October.
Rep. Paehaole favored the amend
ment of Rep. "Wight.
Rep. llayseldcn spoke of the last
fcpeaker's argument as being absurd.
Rep. Dole considered the dillicul
ties about the section arose from the
importance of notice to taxpayers,
and mentioned the trouble natives
had in understanding assessments.
The present law would work well if
assessors had their books ready in
the time prescribed by law. By
having the books ready taxpayers
were liable to be swindled by dis
honest assessors or collectors. He
thought first that the 15th Dec, as
proposed by Rep. "Wight, was put
ting the settlement off too far ; but
on second thought he believed that
would bo the lesser of two evils.
Therefore he felt that they might
try that amendment for the next
After further discussion by Reps.
Aholo and Dickey, tho amendment
of Rep. Wight was put and lost.
Rep. Richardson's amendment car
lied, and the section us amended
Sec. 20, amending sec. 43, pro
vides for posting notices of increased
valuation or disallowed claims of ex
emption, to non-residents of parti
cular districts, residing in tho king
dom, before the first day of Septem
ber. Rep, llayseldcn moved it pass.
Rep. Dickey moved to strike out
certain words, so as to require such
notice to be given to residents of
Rep. Haysclden opposed tho
change as unnecessary and calculated
to bo inconvenient.
Rep. Dole moved tho section be
struck out, as it mentioned non
residents "who have made returns
to tho assessor according to law,"
and there was nothing in tho law or
this bill to require non-residents to
make such returns.
Minister Daro considered Rep.
Dole to be mistaken. The section
was only intended for cases where
returns were made, but arbitrary
assessments were made by the asses
sor. Rep. Haysclden cited cases to
show that tho provision in the section

law amended in this respect.
Rep. Haysclden withdrew his

Rep. Dole agreed with that, with
the addition of, "as provided in sec.
33 of this act," which Minister
Minister Dare held that the notice
in sec. 33 was a different one from
the one mentioned here, and that the
section was very proper as it stood.
Rep. Dole thought the Attorney
General had not been listening to
tho discussion, as neither he nor
Rep. Haysclden had been speaking
of the notice but of returns.
Minister Gibson's amendment car
ried, and tho section as amended

Rep. P.iloluut moved to make it

Rep. Richardson thought Police

The motion to strike out carried.
Rep. Haysclden moved to strike
out the next two sections, as they
related to the same subject.
Sec. 24, amending sec. 51, to pay
members of tax appeal bonds S5 a
clay and actual traveling expenses,
Rep. Ilarselden moved to strike
Rep. Brown wanted to retain it,
and moved accordingly.
Rep. Kaunamano supported the

cover traveling expenses in some
Rep. Thurston said "actual travel
ing expenses" was an elastic term,
and moved to make it read $10 a
day and strike out the provision for
Rep. Dickey supported the sec
tion. Rep. Paehaole would strike it out.
The motion to strike out was lost,
and the section passed.
Sec. 25, amending sec. 54, gives
supervision of the collection of taxes
to tho Governors, under the direc
tion of the Minister of Finance;
also gives the Governors the power
of appointing tax collectors, with
the approval of the King in Cabinet

as it reduced Ministers to being
mere clerks with no responsibility.
Sec. 20, amending sec. 55, re
quires from collectors a bond, with
two or more sureties, in a penal sum
equal to the amount of taxes to be
collected by them.
Rep. Castle thought the sureties
should be owners of real estate, and
moved an amendment accordingly.
Rep. Dole supported the section,
referring to the dilficulties collectors
had in getting security.
The amendment was lost and the
Sec. 27, amending sec. 01, defines
the liability of collector and sureties
for the payment of all taxes, except
the school tax, on or before the last

MINORITY REPORT OH THE HAYSELDEH
Hon. J. S. "Waj.keh, President
Legislative Assembly Sm: Your
committee appointed to consider the
items of 82,123.21 and 4,554.78 in
the Appropriation bill on account of
the balance due tho estate of J. G.
Hayheldcn on the contracts for the
"Waimea and Wuilun bridges, on the
island of Kauai, respectfully offer
tho following minority report : First,
in regard to the Wairaca bridge,
your committee find that whereas
the contract calls for piles averag
ing 20 feet in length and requires
that such piles be '.'well driven;"
as a matter ot fact, not one of 25
piles, which were removed when tho
bridge was lately raised and re
paired, and one' pile which waB
washed away and afterward picked
up on the beach when the bridge
was partially destroyed by a freshet,
readi a length of 17 feet, and barely
average 10 feot in length, one or
two being only 14 feet in length.
The requirements of tho contract,
that tho piles bo "well driven,"
does not appear to have been car
ried out, for they had been driven
only six feet inlo tho soft bed of the
river, and show no indications of
having'becn so hard that it was diffi
cult to drive them further ; none of
the piles examined by the contractor
for rebuilding tho bridge had iron
points, and yet none were bruised
or blunted at the point, as would
have been the case had they
been "well driven" into tho subsoil
of the river bottom ; neither did tho
heads of the piles, which had been
sawed off, show the bruised or shat
tered clVcctH which must have been
the results of being "well driven"
by the pile driver, weighing 1,500
pounds, called for by the contract.
The freshet which carried away a
part of the bridge washed away five
feet of the depth of the mud of the
river bottom, leaving only one foot
of the length of the piles fixed in
the inud. The natural result was
that the bridge was partially car
ried away, even though the water
did not reach the bridge chords.
From these facts, and the addi
tional facts ascertained by your
committee, relating to the rebuild
ing of the same bridge, to the effect
that it was found practical and
necessary to drive the piles in the
new work from 12 to 17 feet into
the bed of the river, your commit
tee arc satisfied that the contract
with James G. Haysclden for the
building of the Waimea bridge has
not been carried out according to
the terms thereof, and that in con
sequence of such incomplete and
careless performance, the public
treasury has suffered heavy losses,
far beyond the balance inserted in
the Appropriation Bill as due the
said estate on the said contract.
Your committee, therefore, recom
mend that the saicl item of S 2, 123. 21
be struck out of the Appropriation
Bill. We feel that such action is
the more apptopriate from the fact
that said contractor sublet or as
signed tho contract to the Pacific
Bridge Company for $!),:100, the
contract price being $14,500, where
by large profits will be realized by
his estate if the full amount called
for by the contract is" paid, in ex
change for which the Government
has received fiom him no personal
service, and yet in spite of the said
assignment of the contract, the said
contractor could not have thereby
shifted his responsibility for the
proper performance of the contract.
Second In regard to the Wailua
bridge, your committee have not
been able to obtain as definite in
formation as they have wished in
regard to the causes which led to
the destruction of the bridge shortly
after it 'was finished, a freshet in
the river being the immediate
cause. Fro ill what your committee
have been able to learn, they
arc satisfied that the biidgc was
not placed high enough ; there,
however, is no requirement in
the contract as to the height of
bridge from the water. Under these
circumstances, the contractors should
have ascei tained from residents the
highest known rise of the river and
have placed the bridge out of reach
of a repetition thereof. On the occa
sion of the destruction of the bridge,
the water'reached the bridge chords
and then the biidge gave way. We
have also been informed that one of
the iron cylinders forming part of
one of the piers of the bridge proved
too short to reach to the hard bot
tom of the river, and the contrac
tors, instead of lengthening it, left
it standing in the mud and went on
with their woik, using it as a sup
port as if it was satisfactorily sta
tioned, and that this defectively
stationed pier contributed to the
destruction of the bridge. We were
not able to verify this information
relating to the defective construction
of the Wailua bridge, but mention
as explaining the otherwise unac
countable destruction of this work
so soon after it was completed.
Such destruction alone, without
satisfactory explanation, in our
minds condemns the work as defec
tive, and would justify tho Govern
ment in refusing the balance of the
contract sum. The explanation,
which is given above, does not clear
the contractor from blame, and if
taken as true, would justify the
Government in refusing further
payment. With these remarks wo
refer the mater of the item for the
Wailua bridge back to the Assem
bly for consideration.
In the matter of tho Wailua bridge
we learn that the contract, which
was for $17,500, was sublet or as
signed to the Pacific Bridge Com
pany for a much smaller sum ; tho
same remarks apply to this circum
stance as in tho case of the "Waimea
In case either of the said items
should bo allowed, a correction
should be made for interest, the
contracts calling for G percent, while
calculations by which the said
amounts aro reached aro based upon
a rate of 9 percent.
