in support of his motion eulogized
tho services of tho laio J. U. Ka

Tho Balary of tho first clerk of

court. If it waq ronomy on Ha
waii, it should ba on Maui. Ho
called attention to tho aonorul
hurried way in which tho govorn
mont officials transacted business
in tho courts of tho othor islands,
whore everything ws sacrificed to
the desire of tho officials to get
back to Honolulu as quick as pos
sible. Rep. Richards wanted it under
stood that ho( did not favor the
item becauso it was for tho island
of Hawaii but becauso ho under
stood it was necessary and nn
economical proposition. Members
would find out boforo the session
was over that ho was out for
economy in every department,
whether it affected Hawaii or not.
Tho item finally passed.
In tho items forthoDopartmont
of Foreign Affairs, Rep. Robert

included tho expenses of getting
up tho evidonco in tlio mattur of

Rep. Richards inquired what
was tho average oxponso of con

received tho fees. Minister Cooper
said tho office was ft rovenuo prb

In tho Department of Finance
whilo discussing tho salary of tho
nuditor-gonoral, Rop. Rycroft sug
gested to tho Minister of Finance
the insertion of an item for a travel
ing auditor. Ho claimed that tho
books of ovory office on all tho isl
ands handling public mouoyshould
bo systematically examined by n
government auditor. Ho claimed
that tho present looso system of au
diting books on tho other islands
was in reality offering a premium
on dishonesty and instanced tho
recent Hilo scandal.
Minister Damon ngroed with
tho last speaker in tho necessity
of a traveling auditor in each de
partment, and Baid a system of
regular examination of accounts
had already been iutioduced in
tho Postal Department with good
effect. Ho had already suggested
to tho Collector-General tho inau
guration of a similar system in
his dopartmont, but ho had hesi
tated to suggest tho cre
ation of n neAv office or offices for
that purpose on the scoro of ox-
fionso. The speaker thou out
inecl tho financial policy of tho
Executivo for tho noxt two years,
saying that tho two appropriation
bills now before tho Houso aggre
gated S3,GOO,000, which was tho
total amount of tho autickiated in-
tcomo for tho present fiscal period,
including tlio uenolus to bo do
rivedfrom changes in tho time of
taxation and other now sources of
rovonuo. If the bulk of the money
was appropriated for salaries
and pay rolls tho bill for current
expenses would havo to suffor ac
cordingly, and vico vorua. Ho
agreed with Rop. Richards that
tho House (should treat tho quos
tioii of appropriating money as n
business proposition entirely.
Our incoino was so much,
wo had so much money to spoiiil
and no more, and wo must bo
governed in our oxpoiiBos accord

fuel that salaries and pay rolls
