It distresses the Hawaii Herald
sorely that any objection should
be made to tho proposition of
municipal incorporation. Because
the system is in general vogue in
the United States, that paper con
cludes it is the one thing needful
among all that is desired, for these
islands. Doubtless it will cocao
here in time, but, for the presont,
there is not a town or district in
the islands where tho conditions
aro capable of comparison, for tlio
purposes of municipal goveru
muut, with tho smallest civic cor
poiutious in the United StatoB.
What tho Bui.MvriN objeotod to
which moused ilia Ililo papet'u
emotion, however, was not the
priuciplo of incorporation, but tho
untitnolinoss of its present dis
cussion. With annexation in
fairly good prospuct it would ho
mako any radical
into ot tho pond
ing treaty to that cud slull havn
boon determined, because in tho
ovoutof ilu ratification tlio instru
ment ibiolf provides for tho ap
pointment of n comiiiiHHiou to
foriiiulalo a system of government
for tho territory of Hawaii, Until
tho distribution of federal and
local powers in huuIi a system is
known, with Iho ntHoiirmw of re
VKiiiKi for local iturviooH, It will Im
!F - - - !
P Whereas, A trenty of political '
I t' union between the Republic of '
inpoRsiblo to frame any hoIioiik)
of town or county incorporation.
Municipal corporations aro self
taxing bodies for tho support of
tho public services delinod in
their oharlors, but thore will ne
cessarily bo k local government
for the territory as a whole, with
jurisdiction ovor such matters ns
roads, education, health, etc. To
tho reveuuoof this torritorial gov
ornmout tho municipal corpora
tions in question would bavo to
contribute Thoy would bo re
quired to pay thoir sharo for tho
Buatentation of tho territory's
school system, roads through
sparsely settled districts, the
maintenance of tho Molokai set
tlement, uli Here, then, is a
wheel within a whool two sys
tems of government to bo support
ed through direct taxation by tho
1 taxpayers in municipalities. Ho
nolulu and Hilo people would
then begin to realize what taxes
are in a way they nover had done
before. Of their own town services
thoy would have to bear the full
burden. The country at largo
could not be taxed for their bene
fit, after they had sot up in busi
ness on their own account, as it is
now undor a single government.
In time tho towns will grow so
great that municipal government
will be a necessity, and the coun
try districts' "become populated
enough to have couuty organiza
tion. For the present, and espe
cially until it is known what con
ditions will be created under an
nexation, it would be the part of
wisdom to lot well enough alono.
There was not tho slightest in
tent, nor any known basis in view,
to reflect upon tbo drug contrac
tors in a brief comment yesterday
upon Hoard of Health proceed
ings. The reportod statement of
Dr. Day, in elTect that a large pro
portion of tho supplies woro not
put up to tcudur at all, seemed to
invite criticism, but only of the
Board itself. It is hard to see
whore the contractors should bo
deemed blameworthy in the pre
mises, for supplying all that is
ordered whether in tho con
tract or otherwise. A member
of the contracting corporation
having tho contract, however, in
forms the Bulletin that the con
tract stipulates for wholesale
prices on unspecified articles.
This is a guarantee, apart from
tho uuimpeachable iutegrity of
the coutractois, that exorbitant
prices are not paid. Only whoi
over tho tender and coutinct sys
tem is omployed, the public ex
pects that it will bo so as thor
oughly as possible.
Secretary Wilcox ought to ox
poud his sarcasm upon tho mem
ber of the Board of Health who,
in open meeting, drew attention
to the matter of the drug liBt. It
novor occurred to tho Bulletin
to hold tho lay omployos of tho
Board respousiblo for making up
Kb pharmacopoeia, but if the
Board makes that a merely cleri
cal duty, as tho letter of tho Sec
retary would indicate, this paper's
brief criticism is given tenfold

I he merits of these wind
mills are so well known that

I snnifl If ic cnrtieiflnf in ctltA

that the Aermotors will run
when all others are at a stand
still. a They are self-regulating-, !
requiring no attention what-
ever beyond ,an occasional ,
drop of oil. There are more
Aermotors sold in the islands
than all other makes of wind
Among those who have re
cently purchased Aermotors of
us may be mentioned Minister
Damon, who has one at Moana
lua; Minister Cooper one at his
new AVanoa mansion; Paul
Isenberg is so well satisfied
with them that he has no less
than four at his Waialae place.
We can show an Aermotor
Windmill in actual operation
which pumps water 4000 feet
to an elevation of 190 feet.
There is no other that will do
this. We can furnish the Aer
motor with pumping mills or
geared to run machinery. These
latter will perform all the work
of a one to four horse power
In connection with these
windmills we supply Gould's
and Krogh's triple acting
siphon and other pumps and
patent water tanks of 500,
1000, 2000, 3000, 5000 and
10,000 gallons capacity.
