FOKTY-KIGIITII DAY. i
Wi:nsnsiAY, Aug. (1.
The House resumed in committee
of Hie whole at 1 :05.
Nolilc .1. il. Horticr t-allctl ullrtt
ticm to tlit' great elaborateness of the
tn system, First there were the
assessors, then the deputy-assessors
who gi'ticrally know a great deal
morn about tho property than the
assessors; -then the Tax Appeal
Hoards and finally there was an
other appeal to Honolulu. The
speaker told a story of tax experi
ence in California. The assessors
were nlJ appointing by tho Govern
ment., which the "speaker objected
to. After tlio revolution tlio people
seemcd.'lo have a new lease of life
in tlio Government, here and there
was, an enterprise which would
never have existed Under tlio old ro
nitne. It was this which had caubed
the increase in taxes collected. It.
is no wonder the Government is
satisfied with the law since all the
lax-pllleers are appointed by. the
Minister Brown was not at all sur
prised at the desire of the lion,
member to abolish tax assessors.' It
was notorious that the taxes had
been increased by the new law. The
trouble was the tax assessors were
very intelligent, and they found too
much properly. There were planta
tions that didnot pay taxes on the
amount of their annual dividends.
The gentleman had said enough to
show where the shoo pinched. It
was well known what happened at
Hilo n year ago. An honest 'tax
assessor had made a correct "assess
ment. Planters who had influence
got it through the tax appeal boards
very much reduced. Nothing of
that kind was goinc to happen while
this Ministry remained in olllce.
Rep. Knudsen complained that the
taxes were imposed unfairly. Ue
would not have said anything al this
stage on thesubject,if ithadnotbecu
remarked that the tax collector was
our enemy. His district would be
satislied to have the official paid
well, if only an equitable mode of
taxation was devised. lie thought
the appointment of lax assessors un
der the present law had led to these
officials . over-exerting themselves.
One man was assessed $500 for 100
bags of paddy, although he had no
thing behind the bags. It was un
christian to do this simply because
it was a Chinaman ; to keep the
Chinese out of the country would be
another thing. The Minister of Fi
nance seemed to think that the sys
tem that scraped the largest amount
of taxes together was a grand sue
Noble J. M. Horner said his ob
jection to these assessors was that
there was no need to spend the $25,
000 paid for their salaries. Tlio
people of Ilamaluia he knew never
shirked paying their taxes. Ho
scorned the imputation that such a
thing could be laid at the door of
the planters of Hamnkna. If the
three courts were not sufficient to
enforce the law, then this fourth
functionary could hardly help much.
Rep. llrown argued that some
special agency was necessary for
the collection of taxes. In answer
to a question by Noblo .T. M. Horn
er, he said the work was formerly
done by the Governor of the island,
whom he had heard the hon. Noble
declare was a useless officer. The
Government is collecting the taxes
for the year ending June 30th,
1891, under the present Act, and
this House cannot change the sys
tem for this year.
Noble Walker was at a loss to
know what was exercising tho
House now. These items were to
enable the Government to carry out
an existing law. The tax law was
not before the House just now, and
tho only question was whether these
Bums or any sums should bo voted
to enable the Government to per
form a specific duty.
Noble Isenberg argued that the
Ministry should be enabled to carry
out the existing law. lie preferred
the old way and never had any fault
to find with their Governor of Kauai.
IIo, however, had confidence in the
'Ministry that initiated this 15w, as
he had confidence in the present
Ministers. If the law was to bo re
pealed, that was another matlor,tli(j
new law could not take effect till tho
first of next July,
Noble J, M. Uorner wished to ex
plain that he had no objection to
granting tho money, but he had
been given to understand that dis
cussion of tho office itself was com
petent In committee of tho whole,
Rep. It. W. Wilcox supported
the motion to defer the items. He
agreed with the views of the lion.
Nobles from llamakua, and with tho
lion, member from Kauai. Some of
these assessors were going- round in
sulting people. Tlio assessor
for Oahu went into tho Mnsio Hall
on the 30th of July last year, and
bogan shooting people down without
any orders. These officials should
be taught that when clothed with a
Jiltlo brief authority they must not
strut round and insult peoplo,
Minister Brown roniin'ded lion,
members that no new tax law could
go into effect until the first of July
lollowing its passage. Personal
matters should not come into tlio
discussion, as there was a provision
of the law which gave tho Minister
power to remove tho assessors only
for reasons given in writing. If
good reasons wore tints presented to
blra against any of them, he would
act thereupon. lie was surprised
to hear anything against tho asses
sor for Maui, who was regarded "as
:; young Hawaiian of model charac
ter. The proof of the pudding was
in the eating, and it was a fact that
less appeals had arisen under this
law than any previous one. -
Noble lltiidwiiix did' not wish the
question decided on personal preju
dice'. He liked this law because it
was more systematic than the form
er methods. It provided for tho
assessor being a resident of his dis
trict. The " assessments in tho
speaker's district varied von much
from one year to nnother, because
the assessors did not know the' dis
trict. The board of equalization
was another improvement. As stated
by the Minister they had increased
revenue while the taxes were moro
evenly divided and there was less
complaint. Tlio total expense of
collections was, moreover, less than
under the old way. He did not say
that this was the best law that could
be had, but hero was a moro system
atic method than any that had pre
ceded it. All he and other planters
wanted was fair taxation "and they
would not sjiirk taxes that were fair.
With an office in the district and
several years' tenure or office, the
assessoV made a sliyJyof his busi
ness, andthore was no dioppingout
of properties without assessment as
formerly. Let the Governor ques
tion sta'nd on its' own basis. The
Governors had 1'itllo or nothing "to
do but to receive the. taxes and
transmit them to the Government.
Hep. Marques thought all this
waste of time could .have been
avoided if tho proposition to defer
the items had been accepted. He
differed from the Minister in regard
to the matter having no connection
with tho proposed amendment to
the law. If assessbrs wero to bo
abolished, what was the use of vot
ing their salaries. He agreed with
those members who considered the
Hep. Nawahi was in favor of the
postponement of the items. He
should think there was ''more eys
tem" and "better equalization,"
when there never was a session
when so many petitions to refund
taxes had been received. In one
case a blind man had been taxed
and in another a ' boy. This was
system, and equalization! Adjoin
ing lands on Hawaii were very un
equally assessed. In 1887 under
the old law there were no appeals,
in 188S under the new law there
were lots of appeals,' in 1889 there
was a whole crop of appeals, more
in Ililo than for a great man- ypars
Noble Walker considered an hour
and a half had been wasted this af
ternoon on a matter that would not
bo pgppcrly before the House till
sometime hereafter. It had been
represented very clearly that we
were under a law that could not
possibly expire before next July,
and it was necessary to provide for
the administration of that law. They
had listened to a rigmarole on the
personal qualities of assessors which
had nothing to do with the Question.
When the bill caino up they wf.uld
have to decide it on its merits.
Hep. Marques said they might
bo bound for one year, but should
not be so for two years. Those
items wore for two years.
Noble Walker replied that to
vote the money did not imply that
it would be paid. The Minister's
salary was for two years, hut if ho
went out oft office ho could not
draw the salary.
The motion to defer tho items
Hep. llrown moved the item for
Assessor of Oahu pass as in the
Hep. R. W. Wilcox moved it pass
Hep. Marques asked a question'
of the Minister, who replied that ho
had already answered it. Tho hon.
member persisted in his interroga
tions, and was informed that tho
salary was placed at the figure
given because the scryices wero con
sidered worth it.
Hep Kauhi said he had moved to
make tho salary 8150 a month and
would, stick to it till it was carried
or lost. If he was assessor ho
would make n present of $80 a
month to tho Government and bo
well satisfied with $130. In res
ponse to calls for tlio question lio
said if they did not look out ho
would speak till five o'clock. When
a member of the special session of
1887 just after the promulgation of
the new Constitution, ho heard a
great deal about the UHclessncss of
the office of Governor. That offleo
was abolished and these new offices
substituted therefor. Thcro was very
littlo difference betwen the offices
except in name: their respective
duties were similar.
Passed as in tlio bill.
Hep. It. W. Wilcox moved tho
item for Hawaii be S00OO,
Passed at 87000 as in tho bill,
Rep. Kalua moved tho itom for
Maul bo 7000.
Passed at $0000 ns in the bill.
Tlio item for Kauai passed at
85000 as in tho bill.

Minister llrown moved 45,000
nnd hoped ho would havo to pay it,
as it was in proportion to the taxes
to be collected. Carried.
Minister Drown wanted to move
lo insert hero an item for pay of
two clerkB in tho tax pfllco in Hono
lulu. Tho collector has bad to pay
them out of his own pockot. It was
no now exnendituret as it camo out
I nf (ho liprenntnirn nf collections.
-. .... ,.-.,. ..p- ...
Tlio item required was $3000
one clerk at S76 and the other at
$150 a month,
Hep. Kalua was opposed' to this
item, as its passngo would call for
the same thing for tho oilier Islands.
There they paid for their own cleri
cal hire, that wa9 tho way ho did
when ho was assessor. Tho pro
posed item would establish a bad
Minister llrown said the money
came out of the treasury anyway,
and tho appropriation was onhy to
save the clfcrks tho inconvenience
of waiting mouths for their salaries.
The clerks on the other islands wore
in a different position from those
here, who hod to work day in and
day out the year round, having a
great deal of statistical work. He
intended to ask for a small item for
tho office rent and expenses of each
of the other island assessors.
Noblo Macfarlano, as n member
of tho finance committee, supported
the proposition of tho Minister.
That was a matter that the finnncc
committee would discuss. It was
only to save tho assessor from hav
ing to advance his commissions.
Rep. Nawahi opposed the item.
Why not make the clerks into depu
ties, to take their, pay out of corn
Rep. Kauhi rose at 4:07 and a
dozen members, as if afraid of an
other hour's speech from him, has
tily retreated from the chamber.
The speaker in about five minutes
moved that the committee rise.
The committee rose and reported
progress, and the report w is adopted.
