PUT DOWN HIS FOOT
IN A MONEY MATTER
Will Not Allow Funds of Relief So
ciety to to Used to
Send Attorney to
There was somewhat of a warm time
In the halt of the Chinese United Sa-
clety last night where a lot of Clhna-
men of the city had lathered for- the'
purpose of talking over the question of
nn attorney to represent them In Wash
ington In the -citizenship matter. Tho
pro)losltlou before, the house las to the
effect' that thj! balance of the Chlncso
lienor society now in Bishops bank,
be used for the purpose of defraying
the expenses of the representative of
the Chinese to Washington.
Clhnese Consul Yang Wei, Tin was
not expected at the meetlng'but he had
been apprised of the nctlon that would
be proposed and was there k't an early
hour. This did not prevent (he ques
tion being brought up, although It was
n well known fact that the consul wa'i
Vang Wei Pin said that the" money
did. not belong to the Clhncse. United
Society but to the Chinese Relief So
ciety and. as his name had been plac
ed on the committee In charge of the
funds of this organisation, he did not
Intend to have one cent of the money
In the bank spent tor the purpose pro
posed. The money 'was for charltab'o
purposes and for charltibln purposes
only, would It be used.
There were murmurs of disapproval
nnd then It was thought better to de
fer consideration of the matter until
next Friday night. In the meantime,
the matter could be thoughfully con
sidered nnd, If necessary, other money
could he raised.
It seems that all thU trouble has
come about through the existence nt
two factions In the Chinese United So
city. One of these leans toward w
form and may be picked out by their
lack of the conventional queue. Tho
other faction Is In favor of the old con
dition of things In China and this Is the
side that is In favor of the action of
The reform element is against the
Consul and Is always willing to fight
him whenever'the opportunity presents
Itself. They have not yet gotten over
the fact that their consul was the one
who sent back to China the names of
all the subjects of the Chinese Empress
In Hawaii who bad (Joined the reform
movement. This Is the strongest ele
ment in the make up of tho Chinese
United Society rnd they may have their

The Independent Home Rulo execu

and, upon tho conference of the mem

mittee had been secured. The chair

seen but he was not willing to give out
the names until the whole commtttea
had been decided on. There. Is (o tie 1

Mr. Spencer Hesitates only

Prof. M. M. Scott, principal of tho
High School and one of Hawaii's ablest
students of political economy In the
Islands, Rays of the municipal question:,
"Yes, I am In favor of n m'unlclnal

fluous question to ask, Vine born under

"Municipal government Is an exten
sion under Infinitely more difficulties
of the'fbwn meeting "the best school,,
said Jefferson, 'for political education
ever practiced or conceived by man.'
"1 believe -41ml It Is puMTIble so to
organ be and carry ut that organiza
tion oftmunlclpal government that tho
conditions of life In the cities may bo
In every respect, superior to those lb
the country. It need not necessarily
involve any Increase of taxation. A
corporate body properly organized
under a good charter can alwayB bor
row money at the lowest possible rat?
per cent much cheaper than any indi
vidual or ordinary corporation.
"If Honolulu had a proper charter,
and capable,, honest and progressive
men -as councillors tsid magistrates,
extensive and much needed Improve
ments might be carried on without
any Increase of taxation. The wealth
of Honolulu will Increase in a greater
ratio than the population. Money
needed for Improvements might be In
vested In two ways one part for what
may bo termed unproductive Invest
ment such as Improved schoolhousiM,
parks, necessary government buildings,
etc., the other part for productive In
vestments which more than pay for
themselves. For nil city Improvement
by which coming generations will bene
fit, those generations ought to stand
dome of tho expense.
"In a city situated as Honolulu Is, it
Is more Important to have a vigorous
honest nnd competent local govern
ment than in mostmf the cities of tho
Mainland. It 14 absolutely necessary
to the well being of the Inhalbtants of
Honolulu, that the best sanitation
should prevail. The cleansing depart
ment should be perfect, plenty of
wholesome water should bo furnished
at the lowest possible cost; good lights,
means of transportation, enabling the
Inhabitants to. live on the hills, should
"Any charter should provldo that
these things, sometimes knows aa
public utilities, should be carried on
so as to give the people the cheapest
and best. It should provide an alter
native that, It prlvato companies la
not operate these things satisfactory to
the people that tho municipality may
at any time ex-appropriate them and
deal with them In such manner as It
"Being In favor of n chnrter, how
ever. Is not to say that I regard It as nf
immediate feasibility. A fancy supper
can be got up In a fow moments; a
good charter embodying tho results of
the best thought and experience upon
the subject Is quite a different Uilng.
Most of the old residents of HonoluU

plan for the people of Honolulu to gel

perhaps to ask the Legislature to ap

I will repeat that I nm emphatically lit

for tho city of Honolulu, but there Is a
questldn In my mind as to whether ur
no this lthe proper, time for the car

W. F. Allen I anrnot nt all In fa
vor of a municipal form of government.
I believe In the old rule of letting waU
enough alone. It la true, the govern
ment of this country has hcrctofom
been centralized and tne city of Hono
lulu has been under the supervision of
the Department of tho; Interlo'. How
ever. I can Bee no reason for a change,
even taking Into constderat'on the
change of circumstances. We are get-
tln.along.well enough. In the flr.it
place, there will be added taxation nnl
I have not had It proven to my satis
faction yet that wo will get commen
surable benefits with this Increase. The
strongest point In my objection to ;
municipal form of government Is thin.
There will bo more elective officer!.
There will be the mayor, the alder
men and a whole following of other
officers. This state of affairs means
more politics and I believe we have
enough ns It Is. There will be all man
ner of evils In tho way of "boodllng"
and the professional politicians will be
out after the big, fat Jobs with tho
object of gathering In all the coin In
their power. They will not be nfler tho
welfare of tho city for they aro not tho

I. Tt. Burns 1 havo no hesitancy lr,
saying I am In favor of a municipal
form of government for the city t
Honolulu. It Is my opinion that It Is
tho very best thing we can have. Ho
nolulu Is plenty large enough and
should be on the same footing with
other cities of the same size on tho
Mainland. Of course, we want a good
charter and good men to be at the head
of affairs in the city.

naped a little ten-ynr-old HawalHav
girl from this city a fortnight or two
ago. was brought from her home Isi -
Walmea. Knual. In the steamer th.it,
came f rom that port Friday morn
ing. She was in charge of one of tU3
police officers of thnt place. The wo
man claims she did not take the child
by force but. on the contrary, attempt
ed to get her to go back to her home In
She states futher that she took' the
child with her to the steamer nt the la-
tcr-lsland wharf and that, when It
camo time for the vesel to sail, she
sent tho girl off the steamer. The Ht-
tie one refused to go, saying that she
wanted to go to Kauai. The worma
persisted nnd finally .succeeded in get
ting tho girl to walk down tht game
way. This, she thought, had finished
the matter and the girl had returned a
her home. Upon arriving at the light-'
house in tho channel, she was surprised -
to find that tho girl was on the steamer.'
She had walked down tho gangway but S
had gone back again on the steamer.
