ONR MAN ONE OFFICB,
Tho one man. one office policy can
liot be adopted tod speedily by the au
thorities of the Territory to suit the
popular demand. Such n ollcy will
furthermore ertrry to complete fulfill
ment tho generally accepted custom
throughout the United States, where
experience hns shown Hint public In
terests are best terved, by individualiz
ing ench ofTko nnd threby forestalling
lomblnntlons that may b productive of
favoritism or iioksIoIo' corruption.
The time was In Hawaii's history
vhen the w hole r ystem of government
was apparently rnrrled on yWlth the
Idea of comblnlrg nil honor and pre
ferment of vubllc offlce among as few
.ndlvtduals as possible. Tho extreme
was reached vhcn a good portion of tho
legislators were- government officers.
This naturnlly met with serious opposk
lion, but tintortunatcly, the pendulum
did not swing to the other extreme.. A
law was passed hairing office holders
from the Legislature. Under the Re'
public another advance step wns. taken
In limiting the offices one man can
hold according to the uilaries... It is
n question, however, wnetuer tnc Dene-
Pts of this law were not, oft-set by tho
law making high officials ux-offlclo o?
In fact controlling officers of minor mi
ni .fact controlling membereof minor
I dmlnlstratlve boards. It ls also
possible under the present law for one
man to hold three offices, each'return
ing him a salary'ot 100 a month.
The argument has always been ad
vanced that It is difficult to, cbtnln
men who will accept ISO a month pud
lions, or offices that have no inlarlc
attached, consequently It Is stated to bo
a necessity lo combine offices. In such
a manner ns to five tho incumbent .111

Government offices are not es'ib
llshed nnd should not be maintiiti'.ol
tor the purpose of furnishing nny one
with a living. This is the proper prov
ince of the poor house, and Iltivrid
citizenship has thus far kept, tip t' u
riifflclvntly hlgs standard to forestall
the necessity of such un instltutl.n
If the salary for nny government pcsl
tton Is not n fnlr return for the amount
of work expected of the Incumbent HiJ
lesponslbllltv Is with the'-Legislate
which should be held to answer to thj
fcople. It Is a fr.ct that, the people will
rot believe the one man one offico
policy to be n practical Impossibility.
Capable men arc not so tcarce th it
ittslness houses have difficulty In fill

There is no lav.- to prevent the doub
ling up of o.Tlces, although It is hlghTy
probable the Legislature will enact
ine. If tho Territorial officer? will
voluntarily carry out the manifest de
mand of the people they will certainly
strengthen confidence In the assertid
desire to administer the goverhmnt In

Now, Mr, Editor, while this kind of

If I am not mistaken depositors' Tn the
Savings Hank were guaranteed that the

lodged by them would be kept private
so far ns outsiders arc concerned. Then
by what right has the First American,
Hank of Hawaii to send open postal

the names of depositors?
Secretary Cooper was informed of thi
foregoing complaint. Ho said that ho
