THE MUNICIPAL L ELAY.
"No sufficient time has elapsed,'
Bays Prof. Scott. "Do not be precipi
tate" is the urgent plea of Mrs. Kamm.
Theso comments on our proposed mi'
nlclpal government for Honolulu come
from sources not to be slighted and ex
press thoroughly Independent Ideal.
lr. Scott Is probably one of the best
Informed men of the city on political
economy and the municipal thcorlPi.
Mrs. Hanies hns made n thorough study
of the question ns exemplified In tin
western American city.
These optnlons ns contrasted wl'h
the verdict of the people cxpicssed n!
the last election calls to mind one of
the old New Knglnnd stories. One )t
the lnrgest houses of the village was
to be moved. Tho road led over a high
"hill.. Following the usual custom all
good citizens turned out to nsslst In
tho work. True to New Kngland char
acteristics every man had his opinion
on how it should be done, This
finally simmered down to two factions
ono considered the house could be
successful taken to Its destination
by the oxen and tackle at hand; tho
other that there bhould be a delay to
obtain more assistance. The optlmli's
went ahead with what force they hid
notwithstanding the numerous
predictions of failure from the other
aide.. Tho ascent of the hill was tin
, crucial period and as the task was ap
proached the excitement Increased, the
warnings and urglngs more pronounc
"Vcr can't do It, yor can't do It,'
cried the opposition leader. '
"Drive on, drive on," yelled the men
doing tho work..
They did drive on, tho hill was paw
ed successfully, tho work was accom
plished with the material at hand.
Framing Municipal charters Is not
work that should be placed In the
hands of o drivers, yet tho mornl of
this Incident holds good In tho leading
Question now before Honolulu. There
Is little or no promise that n delay will
n.h n,. ..n.i riitB nmHietPit
accomplish the Rood results predicted
or hoped for by tho advocates of what Is
practically Inmtlon present nnd fu
ture. Tho nrcutnent for delay finds Itc
source In the diead of tackling a hard
proposition. Independent local govern
ment Is Indeed an untried Held for ttif
people of Honolulu; two years illscuc
slon woujd find ns much divergence of
opinion on what Is "best" In tho de
tails of a charter as exists today. Ths
proof of the pudding is the eating, an 1
admitting ns all do that Independent
municipalities are a foregone conclu
' slon, the people are as wclltprcparu4
for action today as they will bo two
Tho appointment of n commission to
make a'tour ot Investigation is fraught
with nil tho dangers of money Im
properly expended nnd supreme Indif
ference as tho municipality Itself. It Is
a recognlied fact that such commn-
Velons In this country are merely ways
and means of shelving a public ques
tion nt tho people's expense. The Ha
lf' wallan city Is tho city with which .vo
ihavo to deal. Nono of the munlcipil
artists of tho Mainland or Kuropo aio

Nnolulu. Their theories are contained
?by force but. on tb ccontrary. attempt

lis the application of theory with which
we have to contend and It Is possible
J. to accomplish this task within the tlma
Epat legislative disposal provided the peo-
. pie will act Wltn nonesi, jorceiui ener
gy. ' The nulletln has no sympathy with
Mrs. Karnes' wholesale condemnation
of tho American municipality. Her pun-
Ishment does not fit the crime as found
' "In the majority of American cities, Tho
