REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE OF
With commendable promptitude
the Finance Department has pub
lished the Statutory Statement of
the Receipts and Expenditures of
the Kingdom for the quarter ending
30th Sept. last. There is nothing
very striking in the statement. The
revenue from various sources has
fceen well maintained and the long
list of expenditures contains the
usual items in the usual proportions
along with a number of payments
which had to bo defcired till the
Appropiiution Act should be passed
and do not therefore properly be
long to the quarter under review.
The'amouut paid out on the latter
in-wuum, is comparatively ngnt as a
number of the overdue accounts
were pushed over into the current
quarter. The Civil List and Petf
manentScttlements take 10,103.00 ;
the Attorney-General's Department
spent 28,202.22; the Judiciary
Department S23.974.98, the Foreign
Oflice 'expended 1,201.36 on the
management of the foreign affairs
of the kingdom and 12,212.41 on
the King's guard and the Band ; the
Finance Department spent SG3, 025.
73 of which 22,000 went in a weak
wilfull compromise of the scanda
lous "Madras claim ;" the expenses
of the Legislature during the quarter
were 19,380.98; the economical
Board of Education got along with
$7,130.78; and the Interior Depart
ment drew on the Treasury for
191,991.48 which includes the dis
bursements of the Board of Health.
These several expenditures give, a
total of 8359,832.94 which exceeds
the. revenue of the quarter by 130,
238.40, but as there were 204,
203.09 in the treasury on 30th June
and the Postal Savings Bank Re
ceipts amounted to 70,573.32,
there remained 144,538.01 in the
Treasury to be carried forward to
the current quarter. The Revenue
was principally derived from Customs
Duties which amounted to 133,
G53.8C. The total receipts from all
sources were 229,014.54 which may
be deemed satisfactory considering
' that this is almost a blank quarter
in the matter of Internal Taxes the
whole sum derived from that source
The first thing that must strike
the mind of every one who examines
' this statement is the gross amount
of quite unnecessary detail which is
published. Tho whole affair makes
more than two columns in the morn
ing paper. A little more than hall'
a column would give all the informa
tion the public needs or wants. We
presume the Minister prides himself
on adhering to what he deems the
letter of tho law which calls for a
"detailed statement." Neverthe
less he has used his discretion as to
the point at which detail should stop.
Tho letter of the law might be inter
preted to demand tho details of all
such items as "Incidental," "Gen
eral expenses of the Board of
Health" and so forth as to which
the public is ccntainly moro curious
, than in regard to tho salaries paid to
the Judges, Police and District Jus
tices and their clerks which require
nearly half a column in which to set
them forth. In tho revenue account
this love of detail is not so conspi
cuous. Tho receipts from tho rents
of Government lands, from land
sales, from business and other
licenses, and from sundry miscellan
eous sources which are grouped un-
aer tuo convenient term, etc., aic
lumped together in one line. "Gov
ernment realizations" is a phrase
r which may cover any sort of receipt
if details arc not furnished. The
item "San Francisco Consul's Fees
$l-,GfiG,84" gives no clue to the
, .period during which this collection
was inado which certainly could not
have been a whole quarter.
Ennou Brm:riN:- The list of
Tax-Colleclors, published this week,
has set people hcic speculating, as
to what the principles nie, in accord
with which tlicbo appointments are
made. Wc understood, Hint when
this government went into power, the
errors and vices of the old regime
should all bo corrected. Under Gib
son's administration there was a
constant complaint against I he giv
ing of Tax-Assessor and Collector
ships to Government ollleials. The
"Gazette" used then to write col
umns against this practice and print
lists, showing how many offices the
ministry heaped on their political
friends. Now the "Gazette" says
nothing, but still the same thing is
happening. Hero in Wniluku the
three appointments Collector '87,
Assessor '88 and Collector '88
made by this Ministry, have been
given respectively to the Deputy
bheriff, the Collector of Customs and
the Postmaster. These officers are
paid respectively 175, 150, and
100 per month very handsome
salaries, and the Assessor and Col
leetorships arc worth more than
1C00 each for a 3 months' woik.
As a man cannot serve two masters,
asjhe cannot be in the Post Office
and at the same time out collecting
taxes ; he will cither have to got a
substitute in the Post Office to the
inconvenience of the public and
thou the- Postmaster-General ought
to interfere or hire a man to do the
collecting, but if that is the case,
why not give the pay to the man,
who actually performs the work. In
former days these positions were
given for political services rendered
or expected to be tendered, but
that can certainly not be the reason
now, as the three appointments
above mentioned were all given to
political nonentities, men, who never
could bring any party more than
their own individual vote, even be
fore the new election law, "muz
zled" the Government officials. What
astonished us more in the last ap
pointment was, that it was well
known here, that the nobles of this
island, present at the close of tho
session, recommended another man,
a native Hawaiian, to hold the office
as Collector. They considered him
the best man available and the'
were given to understand, that their
recommendation would be deciding.
All the other men, whom these nobles
recommended for the different dis
tricts here, have been appointed ex
cept the Wailuku man, and the only
reason we can see is, that he was the
only Hawaiian on the list. Well
may the 'natives doubt the sincerity
of the present Ministry with its pro
posed principles of preferring the
Hawaiian to fill the Government
offices. There is a native Hawaiian,
a propci ty holder with an upgrowing
family, a man, whose ability cannot
be doubted, as four elected nobles
endorse him, thrown aside to give
room for a comparative stranger, a
man without property or family or
anything to show, that he is here
except as a mere bird of passage.
It seems to be the policy of the
Cabinet to ask the different nobles
and representatives for their opin
ions iu regard to appointments of
Government officials in their lespec
tive districts. That is a very sound
policy, and if followed out Would
reduce the complaint over the "Ho
nolulu rule" a good deal, but if their
opinions are only asKeu to "scratcu
their backs," and no attention paid
to their recommendations, then such
a policy becomes a farce and an in
sult to the gentlemen, who take the
trouble to" think over, who will be
the best men to servo in certain
positions, and often make enemies
of the men, they do not recommend.
The Ministry will find out, that they
do not make friends by acting as
they are doing," and they cannot
afford to lose any and least of all
the men, who befriended them in
this Legislature and of whom a
number when they left with good
reason could have said. "
Wailuku, Get. 19, 1888.
A CAY SEND-OFF.
The Alameda left her dock sharp
at noon to-day, for San Francisco.
There was the liveliest kind of a
time on the wharf previous to her
departure. The Hawaiian Band
was there and discoursed popular
music much to the delight of the
through passengers, who gave three
hearty cheers for tho Honolulu
band. Nearly all of the passengers
were decorated with lcis, and much
amusement was caused by two mem
bers -of tho London Gaiety Com
pany with their antics. A number
of native boys were alongside tho
6teamer diving for coin which wns
liberally thrown from the deck by
the passengers. Taken altogether,
it was one of the gayest send-offs
for a steamer in a long time.
On the down trip of the S. S.
Alameda, on .September 11th, in
lat. 25. 4G south, long. 172.48 west,
II. 1'. Bolton, aged 21 years, a na
tive of England, one of the seamen
on board tho steamer accidently fell
overboard while in the act of get
ting on tho stage plank. Life buoys
were thrown over, a boat was low
ered, and every effort made to save
him, but without success. He was
seen for butu few minutes, and
then disappeared. The boat search
ed for an hour and forty minutes,
but as ho wns not been again, the
search had to be abandoned.
- COMBINATION CONCERT.
Tho concert given at Iho Hawai
ian Hotel by tho Hawaiian band
amfthe IT. S. S. Brooklyn's band,
last night, was a treat. The first
four pieces on the programme were
played by our own band, led by
Mr. llcigor. Tho second pail con
sisted of four pieces by the Brook
lyn's bnnd, led by Mr. D. Ficca,
their regular bandmaster. In the
third part the two hands combined,
the respective bandmasters alter
nating in the leadership. Between
the second and third parts several
vocal pieces were intorpcrsed by
the Hawaiian band boys. That the
music both instrumental and vocal
was appreciated, was attested by
hearty applause, particularly when
the two bands combined.
There was an immense crowd of
people present. Tho balconies of
the Hotel, which were gaily lighten
by colored lanterns, were jammed
full of inteicsted listeners. Every
available seat in the grounds, nnd
indeed almost every bit of standing
room, was also occupied. Incan
descent electric lights scattered
among the trees and shrubbery
aided the moon in furnishing illum
ination. Tho bauds occupied the
rotunda iu front of the Hotel.
Shorlty after the commencement
of the concert, the steamship Ala
meda reached the wharf, and most
of her passengers found their way
to where the music was. Judging
from frequent exclamation, they
appeared very much pleased both
with the surroundings and tho con
cert. A pleasant dance followed in the
large parlor of the Hotel.
It is to bo hoped that the music
ians of the Brooklyn, who contribut
ed so much towards the pleasure of
this occasion and who delighted our
people with their music, may be
inducedmorc than once again to
similarly join our local forces and
favor us during their stay in port.
