That going to tho Auditor General Is

"From what I have said you will sco
It Is manifest that tho publication of

The original bills and voucheis should

simple business proposition which :hc
Auditor General should have Insisted
upon to protect himself when legisla

Mi. AiiHitn'H View.
When the attention of Auditor Gen
eral Austin was called to tho matter ho
said to a representative of tho Uulln-tln:
"Wo only receive bills for each
monfh complete, which have been O.
KM, or signed, by Geo. It. Carter, or
omo other authorized person, for tho
Flnanco Committee; this we treat as
tho original bill and Issue warranto
thereon. The business of the Flr.nnco

Orlglnnl BII'r Held.
In answer to several questions the
Auditor General said tho original bills
and accompanying vouchers wevo prob
ably retained by the Flnanco Commit
tee for their own protection; ann in
speaking of tho copying of tho oiltgliml
bills ho admitted that the bills filed In
his ofllco as "orlglnnl," wcro made up
nnd In cases condensed from tho first
orlglnnl and vouchers In tho Flnanco
Orlglnnl Form Clinnijed.
"At first." said Mr. Austin, "tho
copies had been mado by tho merchants
themselves, at the request of the com
mittee, to comply with the demands
of this ofllcc; later, however, I under
stand they havo bcon copied by the
committee's clerks. In must cases tho
bills filed hero wcro changed from tho
orlglnnl form, although the 'otals aro
nil the same. In some cases they were
so much condensed that the necessity
Information was not present for audit
ing purposes and they had to be return
ed to the Finance Committee for fur
ther Information or alteration by the
original bills and vouchers. Those rie
fects were duo doubtless to :ho pres
sure of work In tho clerical department,
although I cast no blame there, as thu
men havo dono much self-sacrlflcliis
work lu the past three months. The
first original bills, as you term tbcm,
will not be filed here as far as I know:
they will probably bo returned to the
Board of Health, where, I suppose,
they will bo open to the public."
Mr. Atlierton'H View.
J. B. Athcrton of the Finance Com
mlttco was seen upon tho subject and
said In substance, that tho Flnanco
Commltteo had seen tho absolute ne
cessity of keeping each department
separate, bo that all Items for Kallht,

appear In ono place. To accomplish
this tho original bills made out on the

Sometimes, whero errors by tho
clerks had been made, tho bills had
been returned for correction. The Au
ditor General had Insisted upon hav
ing tho original bills and vouchers but
the Finance Commltteo had Insisted
as strongly upon retaining them for
Its own protection, ns the Auditor
General had tho signatures ot the
Board of Health, tho Interior Depart
ment and the Flnanco Committee be
hind him. This the commlttoo thouriit
nmply sufficient to sccuro tho en
dorsement of nny Legislature
Chnnfie of Policy.
"However," concluded Mr. Atherton,
"on last Friday the Flnanco Committee
determined upon another -ourso and
ordered that all tho original vouchers
bo turned over to the Auditor General,
upon his giving a receipt for nil hc nu
merous Items thereof. Theso receipts
will bo pinned upon tho original bills.
In plnco of tho vouchers containing the
details of Information, tho bills nnd
receipts being retained by tho com
mittee. As soon as theso nri turned
over, which will probably be within n
week, every original vouchor connect
ed with tho plaguo will bo open to tho
Clnsli f Pol'clen.
George H. Carter said that ho did not
understand that all the original vouch
ers wero to bo turned over to tho Audi
tor General, but only such as that offi
cial had lately demanded, covering
sums of money paid out by tho author
ized agents of tho Bonrd of Health In
tho discharge of their duties. Mr. Car
ter further stated that thla lato deel
slon was giving tho commltteo mo)0
work and trouble; and ho failed to sco
tho reason for It, as tho Auditor had, In
ono case at least, set a precedent by
accepting the committee's O. K. for
money so paid out by an agent of the
Hoard. Tho only reason tho commlttco
has not allowed access to the original
vouchers for publication Is becauso it
would have delayed our work.
"With tho exception of tho vouch
ers called for by tho Auditor General,
all tho original bills and vouchers,"
said Mr. Carter, "will bo turned over to
tho Board of Health as soon as wo get
through our work, which will tako a
month of six weeks longer. As to the
vouchers and bills being made public,
that will then bo n matter for iho
Board of Health to decide, though I
presume they will bo open to the pub

Superintendent Andrew Drown 1b
lmportunnto with Minister Young to
have a start made forthwith toward
Installing tho auxiliary pump at th
Beretania Btrcet station. It has been
decided to put in a Worthlngton high
lift pump which Is available here now,
rather than wait eighteen months for
a Blako similar to tho one coming for
the Palama station.
To shelter this addition to the plant
tho building has to bo enlarged. A du
plicate of tho present front will be
added on, and the side windows of tho
old structure bo transformed Into
arches for communication between the
two sections. Mr. Brown'a Idea Is to
begin on tho pump foundations without
waiting for tho return of tho appro
priation bills from Washington with
President McKlnley's approval. Tho
pump could then be Installed under a
temporary roof, tho same as was dono
with tho first ono, until tho permanent
structuro was completed.
Mr. Brown urges that something
must bo done for tho hill peoplo, to
provent their suffering from nny i.os-
slblo recurrence of drought. Thero Is
no reason for tho fear expressed by
some, that tho artesian will bo mixed
with the surfaco water, which scientific
men havo declared .would mako n
deleterious combination. Mr. Brown
