The House resumed at 1:12.
Rep. Brown, on the Punchbowl
road contractor's item, said there
was unotlier item of preoisclythe
same nature, tltat ot the loss by a
Chinese contractor on the Luakaha
reservoir. If they passed one they
should pass the other, as they could
not make tlsh of one and llesh of an
other. By establishing such a pre
cedent they would have a deluge of
similar petitions for relief next ses
sion. He could not vote for either
Noble Midler fully agreed with
the views of the hon. member for
Honolulu, but he had forgotten that
the committee found that this con
tractor was interfered with, ins
grades being changed for instance.
This made the case different, and
he should therefore vote for the in
sertion of the item.
Rep. 15. W. Wilcox was in favor
of paying this claim. It cost the
contractor a great deal more than
lie had calculated, on account of a
mistake made by the late Superin
tendent of Public Works. The
Minister having the advantage of
the ofllcial estimates had tin; (right
to reject a hid that was foolishly
low, and lie having in this case ac
cepted the lowest tender the claim
should be paid.
Rep. Waipuihmi said no distinc
tion should be made between the
claims of the Hawaiian and the
Chinaman, which were precisely
similar. The contractor for the
Kailua Courthouse lost money on
the job, and if these claims passed
this other man would have a claim.
He was sorry to vote against a
countryman, but he could not sup
port this item.
Rep. Paehaole supported the
item, saying it was on the same
basis as the Kailua wharf item. If
this contractor had not been misled
by the authorities he would have
Minister Brown held that the
passage of the item would be a dan
gerous precedent. If the contrac
l6r had been deceived, that meant
that he had been required to do
something not in the contract. In
that case he would have a legiti
mate claim for extras. If such
claims were recognized by the Leg
islature, persons competent to make
estimates would not tender for pub
lic woiks, having to compete with
straw men who would depend for
for their profit on a vote of the Leg
islature. Members should deal
this matter as in their own private
business. None of them would be
willing to pay a contractor for build
ing a house SGOOO simply because he
claimed to have lost on his tender
Rep. Nawahi cited a caso where
Rcdward & Walker were alleged to
have got more than the contract
price for a job.
Minister Brown replied that Uic
matter would be investigatedind if
there was a claim on the part of the
Government they would go after ihe
Rep. Nawahi spoke of some trans
action between the late Government
and Dr. Tucker, also of the items to
recoup Fred. Harrison.
Rep. Brown asked the hon. mem
ber if he expected this Government
to do wrong because the late Gov
ernment may have done so.
Rep. Nawahi replied that if this
Government neglected to bring jn
an indemnity bill for tic illegal ex
penditures of their predecessors this
Government made themselves re
sponsible for such.
Noble Macfarlane related the par
ticulars of the case as discovered hv
the finance committee. There were
nne tenders for the main road,
ranging from S'J-100 down to S1500.
The late Minister of Interior in ask
ing for the appropriation thought
the amount would be siidiciunt ony
for building the nmiii road. The
performance of this part at Kaiaika
waha's figures he found would en
able the Government to build the
east branch, which Kaiaikawaha
also got to do for $2400. Kahika
waha went into this woik with im
perfect knowledge of the business,
lie was put out of pocket, and his
house was mortgaged ami Ins furni
ture sold. There was a principle in
volved in this matter, and, if they
paid this claim, would it not open
the door to persons tendering for
public works without sufficient
knowledce of the difficulties", in the
hope of getting relief from the Lcgr
islalurc in case of loss. In some te
specls t'ls was je'itiri'Jy different
from Ah Lo's claim, haiuikuwuha
gave up all he had in order to cany
out his contract, whereas the con
tractor for whom Ah Lo was unruly
ran away. Both the Minister anil
the Superintendent wuio of opinion
that Kuiaikawahu could not do tliu
work for the price, If the Minister
hluifered the contractor should
jiuvu known tuioiigh about the hind
mum to have refilled lo perforin any.

Several members objected that the
mattOr was indefinitely postponed.
Nohlo Macfarlane (under the Im
pression that the item was "for the
encouragement of tourist travel")
spoke in its favor, contending that
it had not been indelinUely post
poned. Noble Wideinaun, in reply to a
remark made by the mover, said
that capital had been going away in
stead of being atracted here the
pait two years.
The President, after further dis
cussion, ruled the motion out of

Tin President, Noble J. M. Hor

the view that the salary could only

to transfer the item for the Lahama

Tax Assessor, Oaliu, S7000.
ltep. Waipuilani moved 3000.
The law was certain to he repealed,
and this would pay the salary till
the new law came in force.
Minister Brown did not see why
they should pull to pieces a law that
hail resulted in increasing the taxes
collected by S1.'1R,000. Thero was
a large increase in the returns for
Oahu this year, with only two ap
peals. He did not take much stock
in all the outciy about terrible
things in the future. Sugar was
still six cents a pound. This being
a volcanic country there was as
much likelihood of an eruption des
troying a whole plantation as of the
dreadful ruin anticipated by some
gentlemen from the American tariff
Rep. Paehaole moved $G000,think
ing none of the assessors would
throw up the office.
Noble J. M. Horner disagreed
with the Minister of Finance. He
attributed the increase of taxes to
the growth of property rather than
to the law. The tax-assessors were
the best paid olficers of the kingdom
for the work performed. Three
months was sufficient for all their
Passed at $0000.
Tax-assessor, Hawaii, 7000.
Noble J. M. Homer moved SGOOO.
Tax-assessor, Maui, SGOOO.
Rep. Kanealii moved SSOOO.
Noble Baldwin was sorry the
House had gone in to reduce the
salaries of assessors. The assessor
for Maui had three island to, assess
Maui, Molokai, and Lanai. (Avolce.
anil Kahoolawe.) Yes, and Ka
hoolawe. He hoped the House
would noLrcduce the salary of this
assessor who had charge of the isl-
an'ds of Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Ka
hoolawe, and Molokini. (Laughter.)
The incumbent was a good man al
though he did get after the planters.
He was afraid this movement for
reduction was caused by opposition
to this system, but it was the best
system .in results they ever had. It
was bad policy to cut down the sala
ries of those who gi eased the wheels
of government, and he was afraid it
would produce inferior work.
Rep. Kanealii gave instances of
what he regarded unfair assessments
on poor people by the Maui olficial.
Minister Brown was terribly
shocked to hear of the atrocities
perpetrated by this official bn Main,
It was not he 'but his deputies, how
ever, who made the assessments.
Those oppressed people had only to
spend a quarter to get their wrongs
righted by the appeal board. No
complaints had been received from
Noble Wideraann did not know
the man but had some experience of
his work. He had the misfortune
lo own a piece of land at Waiehu,
which he had returned for years at
eight years' rental. This man as
sessedit at $1000 and .be sent a man

Minister Peterson explained that
this was one of those deputies, but
he had changed the item because he
did not wish to have the prosecutor a
Marshal, or Deputy, or policeman
of any kind.
Rep. Nawahi asked- if the idea
should not be carried out in all the
districts of the kingdom.

the country could afford it, hut the
