Mr. Young opposed tho lucrcnso nnd
In answer to Mr. Aclii's question if
most of tho money was not for tho cast
side of Nuuanu stream, went Into par
ticulars to show that no discrimina
tion was Intended ngainul any section
of the city.
Mr. Achl was not satisfied with tho
explanation nnd moved the Item pass
as rocommended by the committee.
"Fix that Kallhl road, it's better tlnn
to llx Young street." (Laughtcr.)Hu
did noWjolIovo the Government Intend
ed doing anything west of the stream.
Money was appropriated by tho la3t
Legislature for the west sldo hut noth
ing wns done.
Mr. Jones did not thlul: It was wlso
to spend 40 per cent of tho entire im
propriation on tho west side ns Mr.
Achl wanted. Ho noticed sldo streets
on tho west side In Hue condition, nnd
did not rco whero tho money could bo
put. The Minister Raid $300,000 was
EHtimntctt Not Sufficient.
Mr. Kennedy called attention to tho
Minister's statement that it would take
$37,000 for a street, while tho estimate
therefor was put down to $10,000. What
was the uso of voting lrss Minn n third
of the amount needed to mako u street
good. Tho total of tho Minister' cstl
mnto wns $900,000 nnd It would not
bo fur wrong to stilko th cmedlum of
$r27,C23 lecommended by tlm commit
tee. nsttuwitcK ol Income.
Mr. Damon stated that the lcmalu
lug unsold houdH nmumited to hut
$SUU,000 and no moro could bo issued.
Answering n question by .Mr. Gear, tho
Minister guvo Borne estimates of proli
nblo revenue Leaving cut: customs 10
cclpts ho estimated that tho internal
10 venues' would approximate $3,003,noo.
Unissued bonds amounted to $79,000.
He counted on $191,000 from sixty dayu
moro of customs receipts. Tho Hoard
of Health had eaten Into his plans, but
tho geueinl public had got tho money.
Thus far tho expenditure on account of
plaguo suppression was $700,000 exclus
ive of tho crematory cobt. Now tho
March bills wcro coming In, which
would probably eat up another $100,000,
Tho running expenses of tho Hoard,
outsldo of regular appropriations, was
now $1,000 a day.
Mi. GenrVi riHtliuatc.
Mr, Gear said ho found tho lncrcaso
of government rovenuo In 1897-9S over
tho previous porlod wns 7G per cent,
and tho lncrcaso In tho last period 125
per cent over 1897-98, und on tho same
basis, Including customs receipts, tho
rovenuo two years henco might be
estimated nt cloven or twelve million
dollars. Ho bad not tho figures with
him, but calculated that tho lncrcaso
in taxablo property alono would very
nearly doublo within tho noxt year.
Ho know of many cases whero proper
ty has increased from 100 to 1000 per
cont in value tho past year. If tho
Nlcaraguan canal was Inaugurated, ns
seemed probablo, there would certainly
bo n great lncrcaso of valuo here. Al
ready, tho last week, on tho strength of
favorablo reports of tho canal nn In
creased valuo of properly had been
noted. It wns not tho proper basis, in
figuring on tho incomo for tho coming
two years, to go on tho lncrcaso of tho
past. Ho was not over optimistic and
they must net to a certain extent on
tho past. If the money woe not forth
coming of courso it could not bo used.
Ho submitted that good roads had moro
tendency to lncrcaso values of prop
erty than nlmost anything elso. Every
dollar put Into good roadu would come
back In a year In taxes.
All. Dninon nnd the Pnrty.
Mr. Damon remarked that there were
two facts to bo considered. Ho hnd
noticed In his banking business that
the country had been passing tho last
few months through n very critical
stutc. Money had been In great de
mand. Thcro hnd been n great deal of
epeculatlon bordering on what Ameri
cans call n boom. It was n rich conn-
try, tho peoplo wcro well off, there were
j very few poor people. Peoplo had
money in Savings banks end In bonds,
nnd loans wcro being rrndually met.
What with tho resources of tho people
and tho patience of bankers wo were
on n better basis than wo wcro n year
ago. Yet wo nro not 'prepared to go
ahead ns fast as last year becauso tho
people arc moro cautlouq, on nccbunt of
having been In n tight plncli. It is
true thoro has been no panic, although
In many cities of tho States like cir
cumstances would hnvi) produced one.
Quotations of stocks nnd of real es
tate nro not fluctuating as they were
a yenr ngo. It docs havo n lcassurlng
effect in this country to know that
there Is n, surplus in the treasury, w'lth
tho nssurnnco thnt bondholders will
get their money. When we make n
conservative estimate tho Council of
State should nmend It to make as good
an appropriation hill as possible, but
It Is my duty to caution you. Again
we havo to go to President McKInloy
for approval. If wo go to him with n
bill ahead of our estimates ho would
naturally nsk for tho reasons, and It
would tako some nrgununt to convince
him wo wore on tho safo side. Rut It
wo prcsont. a roasonablo argument
based on. facts, It would gtvo tho bill
strength. Everything nsked of tho
Government at Wnshlnslon so far has
been granted, nnd they bellvo that wo
nro dealing fairly with them. They
are, very nnxlnus to mako no mistake.
Wo do not rcallzo their anxiety on our
account. It means a vote thousands
of votes. Tho nntl-expanslonlsts would
Jump nt n clinnco to show thnt our af
fairs nro not being well managed.
Since becoming an American I am con
scious that wo nro coming nearer nnd
nenrer to Washington, Whllo I do not
say this for the benefit of President
McKInley or his party, I think It is
right to tnko his welfare and that of
tho Republican party into considera
tion. Compromise Proposed. '
Mr. Jones, whllo sympathizing with
Mr. Gear's views, quoted estimates to
phow thnt tho lncrcaso proposed was
not necessary. As a compromise, as it
was said politics was a system of com
promise, .lie moved the item pass nt
Mr. Gear said Mr. Jones had got hold
of tho wrong estimates. .Ho moved tho
item pass as recommended by tho com
mittee. Mr. Young did not wish to bo mis
understood. Tho commlttco had adopt
ed his original estimates, which woro
for $1,000,000, but all tho work could
not bo dono In ono period. Ho could
