With tho public treasury carry
ing a good-sized surplus, Hawaii's
business iutercsts aro suffering
from a shortago in tho money
market, aud governmont depart
ments aro seriously hampered in
carrying on tho work which tho
new development of tho country
demands, Whilo a raid on tbo
treasury that would reduco tho
surplus to the dangor point in
event of sudden reduction of incomo
is to bo deprecated, it bohoovos
tbo government to looson up its
parse strings sufficiently to allow
the work of the various depart
ments to go forward without delay.
Moro monoy is needed in tbo
business community to relieve tbo
situation, and the govornment can
accomplish not a little for tbo
general welfare of the peoplo by
putting now vigor into tho oxton-
sion of public work.
Notwithstanding this is a tran
sition period, Hawaii cannot afford
to go backward. Wo cannot afford
to allow tbo work of the schools to

tho last legislature was not able
to forecast fully the necessities of

come under the department of
public works, it is dangerous
business to withhold work on the
supposition that after wo have a

States will take some of tho hard

Congress is liko pulling the teeth

congressional sessions aro usually

If it is legislative action that is
needed to place the departments
on a proper financial footing, wo
have tho Counoil of State and tho

business, and it is not probablo
that President McKiuley would
decree that tho legislators shall
not bo called upon. It is iu fact
highly probable that be will sino
