33rn Day July 10th.
The House re-assembled nt 1:10
p. m. and resumed the considera
tion of the Governor bills.
Noble Smith, continuing, said:
lie did not wish to occupy much
more time. There were only two or
three points more upon which he
wished to speak. One point raised
in objection was the expense. He
would like to call the attention of
the House to the report of the
Auditor-General. There were 830,
000 assessed which were not col
lected. The assessors may have
done their dntj', but the Minister of
Finance cannot tell whether they
have or not. He believed that the
supervision of a capable man would
save his salary many times over.
So much for expenses. Some
of the duties are provided
to be performed by the sher
iffs. They may do very well in
performing some of them, but the
piineipal item, that of assessing and
collecting of taxes is left with the
Minister of Finance in Honolulu.
The question will be asked, Why
don't you put all these duties on the
sheriffs? Tho speaker thought it
would be very unwise to do so, as
the sheriffs have by virtue of their
office very large and arbitrary pow
ers and if they do their duty as
such office! s, they have all they can
do. A sheriff should be a young
man, not necessarily in years, but
in activity and thought, while the
Governor should be a man of large
ability, staid, and steady in habits,
and conversant with the needs of
the Government. It any one at
tempts to construe these lemaiks as
an attack on the Ministry lie does a
wrontr. This is the same as the
Minister's repoit on the audit Act,
and cannot be construed as an at
tack on them, any more than that
report is an attack on the Auditor
General. He then quoted tho words
of the Minister of Finance regard
ing tiiat ollice. He also quoted the
words of the committee to whom the
report of the icport of the Minister
was referred, where they bay that
they do not deem it advisable to do
away with the ollice of Auditor at
present. Does this report condemn
the Ministry? I think not.. Now
the Ministry want the office of Gov
ernor abolished, the committee re
commend the continuance of the
ollice, but the abolishing of its
abuses, and it is done in tho same
spirit as the report from the select
committee on the Finance Minis
ter's report. lie therefore moved
to take up the substitute bill.
Rep. Kinney suidthat Noble Smith
wished to have a supervisor over
each of the islands. lie said that
the contention was for a local gov
ernment for each islnnd, and to
take the control, or self govern
ment from Honolulu. When we
come down to tho pith of this argu
ment it resolves itself into a local
self government as opposed to tho
General Government. Ho did not
think this a display of insincerity
on the part of the Ministry, when
they step into tho breach and say
this must not be so. Thoy say if
that is the lssuo why don't you es
tablish local self government, at
once? lie said that wns a dangerous
expedient, but self government hnd
already been established in the out
districts, so far as it is consistent
with the class of people making up
tho population. All the world over
there is always a wide distinction
between matters to bo left to local
self government and what shall not.
Our contention is, there are cer
tain rights .that should go to local
self government and theie nro cer
tain things that should not go thore.
This bill gives all rights to local
government and in this respect is
in error. He spoko of local self
government in other countries and
how it worked. The committee
bill puts solo authority into tho
hands of one man. The' honorable
Noble Smith says that thcto arc no
olllcials who need more watching
thnn the doctors. 1 agree with him,
but tho manlier in which he wishes
the control of this important branch
of the government placed, is wholly
wioug. They should be governed
by the hend of the department and
not by local authority. If a Gover
nor goes around among the natives
nnd he sees the giicf, mid listens to
the stories of people who have been,
or are going to be sent away as lepers,
it is not in human nature to resist
the appeals of these poor alllictcd
people, nnd no local olllccr should
bo placed in such a position as to
control the actions of such a physi
cian. Let the honorable Noble
look at the weakness of his own bill
befoic he accuses tho Cabinet of in
sincerity. He 1h his bill does not
recognise the division of labor as
obtains in the different departments.
This Governor is supposed to
watch and guard every branch
of public work in his district. It is
impossible for such a man to check
all abuses in these diversified olllccs.
Mr. Kinney would rather have the
opinion or the Superintendent of
Public Works on repairs to be made
on the wharf at Lahaina, under a
cursor- examination of the work,
than the opinion of Governor Ever
ett, after an inspection of a whole
da'. If we are aiming at local self
government we are on the light
road for it, but the Governor is a
stumbling block in the way of its
consummation. He believed with
Noble Smith, that all olllccs that
Hawaiiaim can fill should be given
them. He had been doomed in his
district because he had nagged the
-Minister of Finance until a native
had been appointed tax assessor.
lie had great respect for the opin
ions of such men as the Hon. S. G.
Wilder, but this old order of things
was passed, and a new era had
dawned on the land. The natives
don't want a foreigner as governor
over their islands. They aie being
educated to know that such an of
fice was created for chiefs, and it is
time it was abolished. The promis
ing Hawaiian to-day is the artizan.
Noble Widomann said that Rep.
Kinney wa-. astray when he spoke of
local government. He docs not like
a governor appointed by the minis
try, but he wants a sheiiff to per
ioral the duties. He says that there
is a difference between a governor
reporting to the Ministry anil a shc
litftodothe same. A great deal
lias been said about tho Ministry
standing or failing on this issue, but
he should vote lor the committee
bill, and if it passed he should be
sorry to see Hie Ministry fall by it.
Minister Thurston remarked that
a good deal had been said regaidinj;
the sinceiity of the Ministry, but he
assured the House that the Cabinet
was sincere in the matter, and hon
estly believed that the ollice was
not only a detriment, but a positive
injury to the country. This was
the first question that had been
brought up wherein the rights of the
members under the constitution to
vote untrammelled could be exer
cised. They were not ollice-hold-eis.nor
do they look for or can they le
ceive any office under the Govern
ment after this session is over. If
tlic majority of the House thought
that the ollice of Governor should
bo continued, then it was their duty
to vote for the bill as presented by
a majority of the Committee, but if
on the other hand they thought that
the money paid in salaries to Gov
ernors should be used for other pur
poses, then it was their duty to
vote lor the abolition of the ollice.
He referred to the duties heretofore
performed by Governors, and said
that several of their functions have
been taken from them and placed in
other hands. Other bills arc be
fore the House which, if passed,
will still further diminish the 'duties
of said ollice, and nothing remains
for tliein to do. The other side had
brought up the argument thnt the
Governor should supervise tho as
sessment and collection of taxes.
This was the only valid argument
they had put forward, but it could
liu done much better in other hands
than in the hands of a Governor.
The Ministry proposed to obviate
this matter by introducing a bill to
regulate the assessment and collec
tion of taxes, and had given notice
of such a bill. They proposed to
appoint a permanent assessor for
each district, who shall be financi
ally, morally, nnd in every other
way icspoiisiblo for his actions to
the Government. The opposition
to the Ministry Bill argued that they
must have an overseer over the ac
tions of the Government officers on
the other islands, and they had been
since the last session drafting this
very lame bill, which lliey present
ed to the House for its considera
tion. A great deal had been said
about this bill keeping native Ha
waiians in office. Now, since the
!)0lh Juuu u great many officials,
both native and foieigu, had been
lcmoved fiom office, because they
were incompetent and were only
holding olllco, tis political wire pull
ers. Referenco had been made of
abuses having crept into the Road
Boatds. He admitted such to be
tho case, and complaints were in his
olllco awaiting investigation, which
in time would be thoroughly investi
gated, But the general working of
tho Board hnd been more satisfac
tory than any previous system, nnd
country districts will got tho bene
fit of all their road money. In re
gard to the expense, a word should
be said. During tho last regime wo
had a Minister to Samoa, a Board of
Genealogy with five clerk, and over
700 small olflces under Government.
The present administration had
abolished the Snmonn mission, tho
Board of Genealogy nnd proposed
to reduce the number of ' Binnll
olllccs. A reduction could not be
made in the police force nor in
some other branches of the Govern
ment, but money could be saved by
abolishing tho ollice of Governor.
Mr. Thurston snid in his address
in Hawaiian that he was a Hawaiian
born and expected to die one. He
had no other country, nor did lie
want any. The argument that the
honorable Noble Smith advanced,
that unless the committee's bill
passed llawaiians would not hold
ollice, wns all bosh, and was only
done to induce votes for his bill.
The same device wns resoited to in
former elections to induce votes.
He said that he stood before the
people, and before his colleagues as
an advocate of the Hawaiian, and
should a thousand foreigners apply
for a position that a Hawaiian
could fill, the preference should be
for the Hawaiian.
Rep. C. Brown stated Hint he had
listened with a good deal of interest
to the remarks of the Minister of
tho Interior, and the Representa
tive from Ilamakua, but they had
both come backj to the principle
that was advanced by the majority
of the committee, and were going to
make officers to discharge the duties
prescribed in that bill to be perform
ed by tho Governors. They say
that they are going to appoint per
manent tax assessors in caeli dis
trict. Ho thought that there was
more 111 the name of Governor than
the Ministry were willing to admit.
The very mention of tho word Gov
ernor to them seemed to excite tlicm
as much as a red rag does a mad
Rep. Kauhane spoke in favor of
abolishing the ollice. It had been
in existence for a great many years,
and was now considered a useless
adjunct to the machinery of the
government. It would do no harm
to tiy and get along without the of
fice for two yeais, and if at the end
of that time it was found advisable
to restore the ollice, the law abolish
ing it could be repealed. S23,000
were being spent for Governors
and their clerks each biennial
period, and it was time that the
hole from which this drain comes
should be stopped.
Noble Widomann had a few more
words to say. It had been said
that the Roail Board had great
powers, and they will have such
powers if we have no Governors.
3-1 years ago, he was Road Super
visor, and they had Governors too,
and he had us much power as the
present Road Board and perhaps a
little more. The Governor paid
the load tax into his hands to be
disbursed by him.
Noble Baldwin said that -10 years
ao they had noble men as Gov
ernors, chiefs born to com
mand, but from them we had
com! down to a class of men
that were a harm and a clog to the
working of the Government. Look
at the salary voted for Governors.
It was not as large as that of a
clerk in some of the departments be
cause it was considered a sinecure,
and there were no duties to be per
formed. There must be a change,
and the majority of the committee
admitted that. So far they all stood
on common ground. The majority
bill only made the officer a servant
to the Ministry. He was called
Governor, but the .name was a misno
mer, so far as it is understood by
the llawaiians, and what it implied
years ago. The only way that any
department of government could be
canied on successfully was to have
one head, one superintendent, and
not as that bill cnllcd for, a respon
sible Ministrj' and a servant to carry
out their orders. If this bill should
pass and the olllccr perform the du
ties as prescribed by the bill, the
salary would have to bo raised, as
no competent man could bo found
who would take the place for 1800
a year. Thai salary was lame
enough before, because there was
nothing to do. They had taken
duties from others and put them
upon the Governors, 111 order that
thoy might have something to do ;
but witli all the dignity with which
tho hill is clothed, by making it ob
ligatory for the Governors to make
bcini-annual tours of their guberna
torial districts on a salary of a se
cond class clerk, they will only bu
looked upon as clerks,and notas Gov
ernors. There was no doubt thnt a
good Governor would be of benefit
to the Government, but ho could
not be got for $1800 a year. The
niguinent biought forwaid by the
majority of the committee, that the
Governors should havo supervision
of the assessment nnd collection of
taxes was a good one, but the bill
that the Ministry had given notice
of would cover this point, and
would servo the purpose better thnn
a Governor could. They came into
that House pledged to retrench ex
penses, and they should take advantage-
of every opportunity of doing
Rep. Kamauolia spoko in favor of
was a rc
district to so abolish it.
Noble Luhinit said Hint during
the last session he voted ugainst the
bill abolishing the ollice of Gov
ernor. In early days people went
before the Governor for a marriage
licence, and the Governor asked the
man if he had given up all his other
wives. The man would answer yes.
The question was then aked'the
woman if she hud given up all her
husbands. The answer would be
yes. The Governor would then ask
them if they wanted to mnrry each
other, and if the answer was yes, he
would spit and the ceremony was
ended. He also said that when n
boy at school in llilo, in 1813, he
saw tlie'atlention paid by American
men-of-war olllccrs to the Governor,
and thought It was a gi cat office,
but now it has been stated and very
plausibly demonstrated that tho of
fice is a useless one, and conse
quently he should vote to abolish it.
Rep. Pachaole said the question
had been ably discussed on both
sides. He believed in the reduc
tion of expenses, but did not always
see the drift of the Cabinet in the
policy offered by them, but he was
of tho opinion that expenses could
be cut down, lie was of the same
opinion abithc honorable Koblc Widc
mann, that the olllco of the Presi
dent of the Board of Health could
be filled by an unsalaried olllccr, as
it was before the present adminis
tration, lie said that it was noto
rious that representatives from Mo
lokai succeeded in getting an appro
priation for roads and bridges for
that island, but it always ended
there, as no moncv was ever ex
pended for such purposes. Perhaps
it was because the money .had to be
spent on Goiernors, and conse
quently there was no money for
roads. He thercfoie should sup
port the bill to abolish the ollice.
Noble Waterhousc said that he was
nominated and elected on a plat
form to do away with all unneces
sary olllccs, and he should feel that
lie was not doing justice to his con
stituents if he did not support the
bill to abolish the ollice.
A motion to put the previous
question was lost.
Noble Young said that lie expect
ed to be shut out, but was glad he
was not. He hoped the otlice of
Governor would be abolished. This
bill had to go through whole and
not patched up as the majority of
the committee recommend. In caily
days there were good men as Gov
ernors, but since the advent of
Moreno corruption had crept in. It
was said of Solomon that he said
that theie was never a good woman.
Yes, said a woman, but Solomon
was not looking for good women.
So it has been with the appointing
of men to this office. The appoint
ing power had not been looking for
good men to fill the office. Therc
foie lie should support the bill to
abolish the ollice.
