THURSDAY, DEC. 18, 1890.
The condition of Honolulu's
streets is gradually improving. The
cantoniers are an undisguised bless
ing. Much has been, from time to
time, said about the wonderful road
improvements carried on under the
old Administration, but none ex
cept a few political enthusiasts have
thus far succeeded in locating the
practical results of tho alleged im
provements. They are certainly not
in Honolulu. Tho Punchbowl rond
is not included; it was at best a po
litical fad, unworthy to rank among
the sane practicabilities of every
day street building, such as the tax
payers desired and demanded of the
late Administration. Practical street
building was not one of the special
ties'of the late Government; all that
was accomplished was neglect, and
the result has been a heritago of
mud and ruts In exasperating and
uncomfortable alternation. When
the new law came iuto force our
best streets had degenerated,
through neglect, to a state which
was but little butter than the primi
tive corduroy ronds of the Western
United States. At last improve'
inonts are being mudo without a
llourisli of political boasts or tho
VreWxlof imvlnoctt allttgnllotu of
reform. Vmlor tlio new Inw tlio

throughout tlio Islands nntl nrc dft'lj

of tlio Into Cnblnct. In Honolulu,
wlioro tlio streets on tlio whole were
In nn even worse condition tlinn
tliey lind been for years, our more
linnortant thoroughfares nro now
bccoinlngeoinfoitnbly pnsslblo. Tlio
new Inw assumes Hint tlio ntlngc "n
stitch in time will snvo nino" Is ns
applicable to the repair of ronds as
It Is to personal tniloring. If the
present rate of rond repairing Is
kept up throughout the period, ns
It doubtless will be, by 1892 Hono
lulu, and probably the entire king
dom, will be blessed with fairly
good roads. This is to be accom
plished, from all present signs, with
out a spasmodic show of good work
in a few favored localities, ns per
formed by the late Administration,
while the majority of taxpayers wade
through the mire of despair or break
their bones and buggy springs over
the ruts of this capital city.
A few days ago we used the term
"available revenues" in speaking of
the extravagance of the late Admin
istration and their knack of "get
ting off" with every dollar they
could lav hands upon. Our morn
ing contemporary objected to the
term, because, in its idea, from long
experience perhaps, special appro
priations had become confused with
revenues becoming avnilable, or il
legally made so, for expenditure
under the unbusincss-likc and
suicidal policy of the late Reform
Cabinet. We promised then to cite
certain instances to dispel the as
sumed ignorance of the defender
of the Reform faith, and shall, with
his permission, proceed to do so.
A few instances out of the many
must sufllce this time. There will
be, however, more to come on call.
It may not be out of the way, in
again introducing this matter, to
call attention to the fact that each
and every defence made thus far by
the friends or members of thelate
Cabinet has been upon the lines and
general grounds of defense used by
Mr. W. M. Gibson on the floor of
the Legislature in 1880, when his
official course, touching similar de
linquencies, was repeatedly attack
ed by Mr. L. A. Thurston, then an
alleged reformer out of office. With
the exception of a few spiteful ex
tremes into which Mr. Thurston fell
at that time, we are compelled to en
dorse most of his arraignment of
188G, and, hence, to condemn the
bulk of his official conduct since
that period :
1. A large slice of the appropri
ation for the Support of Prisoners
was illegally turned into "available
revenues" and spent by charging
such things as Government tele
phones, passages of witnesses and
even ordinary hack bills to such ap
propriation. 2. The Superintendent of Elec
tric Lights submitted an inventory to
tho Finance Committeeof 1890 show
ing the plant at the time was worth
ubout $58,000. The plant to that
date had cost $79,000, according to
official returns. This would leave
over .$20,000 of "available reve
nues," or rather of revenue made
available, which somebody succeed
ed in laying either violent or seduc
tive hands upon, of course in the
public interest! When we alleged
the other day, in referring to such
and. similar transactions, that every
dollar of "available revenues" had
been spent by the late Ministry, we
put it very mildly. Where this
"available revenue" went, tho in
vestigation now going on will prob
3. Tho Advertiser wns quite
right when it supposed we would in
clude in "available revenues" the
813,320 illegally borrowed nnd spent
in excess of the Volcano Road ap
propriation, for which tbe Minister
of Interior pledged the credit of the
country. A successful denial of
this "pledge" is made impossible
for the reasou that the Legislature
of 1890 condemned it as such, re
deemed it and ordered it paid in
gold coin. To this is to be added
over 87,000 of the revenues of the
Kingdom, the most of which were
illegally made available and spent
in the same connection.
4. An instance from the contin
gent funds will suffice. The Roads
nnd Bridges contingent was illegally
made available and expended to the
amount of over 86,450 in three sin
gle items, as pointed out by the
Finance Committee. Other similar
items, aggregating largo amounts,
are albo mentioned by tho Auditor
General in his able and unanswer
able report, long since adopted by
tho Legislature. '
5. Revenues were also nrn.de
uvniinblo by charging large amounts
vxpunded to othw appropriation,
ns for liiRtntiep, w hero 81,100 was
chntged to tlio appropriation for
"Now Whnrf, Honolulu."
These nro only a few of tlio
"nvnllnblo revenues'1 tnrnllotiert the
other tiny. Other limtntices will bo
given in duo time. The whole
course of the Into Administration,
ns condemned by the lute Legis
lature, shows that every pretext was
I used to swell the amount of "avail
able revenues' first, nnd then to
spend every dollnr of them as soon
as possible. Not only this, but
nearly SG000 of liabilities contract
ed during the period of 1880-88 was
paid from the succeeding period.
The precedent once set, believing
they were sure of being retained in
ollico, the late Cabinet, or rather Its
leader, proposed to carry out on a
large scale the same unscrupulous
and suicldaljpolicy, had not the
people given the Reform party its
political quietus on or about the
fifth oMnstJlFebruary. Hence the
Advertiser's political tears!
LETTER FROM MR. CARL KAHLER.
Editok Bulletin :
I shall bo indebted to you if you
will allow me a few lines in your
valuable paper. Having been here
a few days only and leaving this
most delightful place to-morrow by
wish to say a few words concerning
an artist, Mr. Hutchinson. I had
the pleasure both of making his
acquaintance and seeing his work,
which is better than anything I came
across while traveling' during the
years since I left the centre of art
nnd science in short of civilizn
tion. Is it possible, that in a spot where
nature has lavished such abundance
of beauty amongst its people, there
are none who appreciate art in its
merit and raise men to the bight of
Being a foreigner who is not suffi
ciently acquainted with your lan
