THE KICK OF A HORSE.
Mr. '.las. Williams, photographer,
was kicked by n horse .Saturday
afternoon. Mr. Williams was mak
ing a bounding visit to McCarthy's
billiard hall, across the street, and
was leaping to tho sidewalk, when n
horse, close by, gave him n rap on
the left leg just below the hip. Mr.
Williams staggered on to the side
walk, calling for help. Mr. Clins.
McCarthy, who saw the accident,
rushed out and caught Mr. Williams,
as he was about to fall. The pho
tographer, who thought his leg was
broken, was placed in n carriage
and taken to Dr. McGrew's, where
lie gladly learned thnt no hones
were broken. Mr. Williams is of
opinion, however, that that horse
had a mule's livetv

MUNICIPALITY, OR CITY GOVERNMENT.
Editok Bulletin: Ever since
Honolulu sprang into opulence nnd
became worthy of the name of a city,
the press has advocated in favor of
a municipality, or a body of city
fathers. That veteran public writer
and newspaper editor, the late Henry
M. Sheldon, when directing the
literary department of the J. U.
Advertiser, made forcible sugges
tions time after time in favor of a
municipality. He pointed out in
language stronger than 1 can, its
advantages and its necessity. He
was not alono on the subject. The
Gazetta joined issue with him, with
Colonel McDowell as its exponent.
At that time the Advertiser and
Gazette had the field to themselves,
both being weekly papers, issuing
alternately on Saturdays and Wed
nesdays. ' Nevertheless they never
attained their object, the Interior
Department holding on like grim
death to that most important branch
of the bureau. Since the demise of
Mr. Sheldon, his ideas on the sub
ject have been adopted by his suc
cessors and the successors of Colonel
McDowell. The tripartite paity that
ran the Gazette for a time when Mr.
Grieve first became proprietor of
that influential journal, wrote pun
gent and common sense articles on
the same subject. The editorial
management afterwards passed into
the hands of Mr. Alatau T. Atkin
son, the nrescnt editor, who sur
passed his predecessors in his out
spoken maimer and fearless advocacy
of relieving the Interior Department
of what does not properly belong to
it. There was an interim in which
the Adrei titter was silent on the sub
ject. Tho interim commenced in
August 1880 when the Advertiser
passed from the hands of Mr. J. H.
Black into the hands of Mr. Walter
Murray Gibson, not"HisExccllency"
then. He bought the paper for an
object. Municipal affairs were
beneath his notice. He dare not
meddle with them. To do so would
conflict and interfere with his object.
He was then an aspiring and ambi
tions politician, Though beset with
dillieultieB and opposition on nil
sides, he gained his point, for which
I say, "all honor to him." He soon
became a Minister of the Crown
(1882) and lias continued so over
since. Hcuce his reticence on
municipal affairs, though the writer
has reason to believe he is in favor
of a Municipal Council. He dare
not say so in the columns of his
paper, hence )iis reticence. And
now comes tho Daily Bulletin and
re-echoes what was sounded several
One atgument against a munici
pality, (principally by those who
are in olllce nnu tliose wno Know
littlo or nothing about its mode of
working) has always been, the ex
pense. The country is too poor.
Honolulu cannot afford it. We get
along very well as it is. Our Itourt
Supervisor knows all that is required,
nnd has a carte blajivte to do as ho
likes, and so on.
I deny that thoio would be any
extra expense if llio usual mode of
forming a Municipal Council were
carricifout. In fact I believe there
would he a considerable saving of
money, and better work done nil
round, paiticulaily in the lighting of
our streets, the scavengering, and
the maintenance of good roads. Tho
Minister of tho Interior, who at pres
ent, has all there things to attend to,
besides 1,000 others, cannot do jus
tice to Honolulu and the other
islands, Our city is not, or ought
not to be, a political community
divided against itself. It ought to
be a corporation created by law for
the transaction of public busiwss. .
Without going into details I
would suggest that tho formation of
a municipality be heic as elsewhere,
differing only according to circum
stances. Lot thcie bo nil nnnttnl
election of, say, five councillors by
tho tnxpnyers, each one whom , shnll
have n number of votes pioportion
ntc to the taxes ho pays. This would
ensure tho election of live gentle
men of high character, nnd amongst
their number, no doubt, men of
executive ability ,added ton familiar
ity with municipal affairs, and con
tempt mercenary politics.
l'roin amongst their members they
would select their own chairman,
and the services of these gentlemen
to be gratuitous. A civil engineer,
a secretary and accountant, and pro
bably one assistant cleik, to form
the olllce staff, paid of course. Out
door woik to be contracted for.
This would tend to reduce the pres
ent staff of men who claim a con
nection with the Interior Depart
ment. And this is the rub. It
w ould cause tho removal of n lot of
shtftlcss,ineompotcnt,ntid lazy work
men who nre paid the same, if not
belter wnges than the honest and
capable men that are so often in
search of employment. The meet
ings of the Council might be
monthly ami all resolutions passed
by them to be approved or other
wise by the Minister of the In
terior, provided he is a competent
person. Harper's HfecM says,
"the true purpose of Government is,
among other things, to give every
one security that lie shall enjoy the
fruits of his labor, to prevent the
strong from oppressing the weak
and the unscrupulous from robbing
But all my arguments are as
naught without law, and as the next
Legislature does not meet before
April or May 1888, nothing can bo
done until that time. Meanwhile
tho Executive members of the gov
ernment and men about town, might
do well to take the matter into con
sideration and draw up a Bill that
would meet all requirements. Op
position will naturally ensue from
political motives, but I believe tho
nomination of live gentlemen of
sincere convictions, and special
qualifications for municipal adminis
tration would ensure "their being
honestly supported. It all lests
willi the present Government. The
fair name of this country and its
capital city is a vital point in tho
advance of Hawaii in commercial
piospeiity. True, its progress so
far lias been rapid, and now is the
time to develop its stability.
Finally, we should have a yearly
budget of expenses. Not an appro
priation bill exactly but a detailed
list of expenditures, and an esti
mated uceountof income. To counter
act the taxpayer of Honolulu being
doubly taxed, a portion of the pres
ent taxes to be transferred from the
Interior Department to the munici
pality, and applied as imcossary.
This a subject that could bo ex
patiated upon at grcnt lcn-ith, and I
will probably take the matter up
again, some day in the near future.
