W.'O. Weedon Want3 It Right Away
Markham Talks on
Below will be found a number of In
tcr views with business men of the city
on the question' of municipal govern-inent-whlch
Is now occupying the at
tentlon xt committees ot tnuty from
the Itepubllcan and Independent par
"H. N. noyd, surveyor There Is mi
doubt whatever In my mind that muni
clpjl government Is what we need It.
Honolulu and all over the Islands. This
Is the only wnywe can get equal rights
for every one. There arc many tiling
that arc In need of Improvement In (he
present system. 'Where Is the use ot
my going any further than to point Ll
tho Public Works Department. JuU
nsk the people about the transactions
ot that branch of the department and
see what they say. It seems to me that
municipal government will solve many
of the perplexing questions ot today,
dive everybody n chance and everybody
will come In to assist In the good gov
ernment of the city.
George II. Paris, of Ashley & Paris,
real estate agents There Is no do-ibi
h.iteer In my mind that Honolulu
must have n munlupVl form cf c-.vcra
nient but the question arts'"! when!
The city should be run from -a business
standpoint and not with political liar
rah. The question ot expens?, n.b'cr
tally and politically, ot Honolulu, Is r.
vital question with everyone who owns
or controls, property Interests l.-r. A
municipal form of government will no
doubt result In higher taxation of
property Interests held" by the re-ld-ms
of the city. The rapid growth of Ho
nolulu In the past three years and the
Improvements projected, whlrli will
surely go ahead. Is a drain Ir. a line
of Improvement of the cltv which Is
more Important than the fe'ling that
we have got a new suit cf 'lathes,
politically speaking. The TicMlon Is:
"Da we want that new suit of clones
right now or would It not bo better to
wait awhile?" It certaitil was the
best thing for the country, in the lo:.?
run that the Immense eVrr.slon In su
gar planting drew on he Hawallnn n
vestors' cash In hand but It Is alcott a
wonderful thing that a financial cr'sla
was averted,. We are not over ihU Im
mense draft on ready funds tn let thefco
new enterprises going. The city of
Honolulu Is now going ahead at a verv
rapid pace. Monev U holng l.l for
to push the smaller en'vprnvi Ahead
faster than the financial men of thb
country seem to think Is safe. Them
Is capital coming Into the country by
every steamer and every neAcom r we
seen on the streets invests or deposits
In one way or the other, something to
the Improvement of Honolulu but, to
double taxation at' the present time,
would naturally shut out a good 4?ul ot
capital we hope to have Invested.
Dr. It. P. Myers There Is no one
more In favor of a municipal form ot
goernment for this city than mysot
but I do not believe we are ready for It
yet. It seems to me that Honolulu
has not reached the right stag. r

am In favor of.jnanlclpal government

thinking yet. ' A chartir should Mt be
fresented at the session, of he Legit

until the next session. If a charter U
passed at the next aesalon, Honolulu
will almost surely run tip against n
George Markham e want munici
pal government as soon as we can get
It but, ot Course, Wo' want to'have a
good charter, What are my reason?
Well. in the first place, I think cverv
voter of Honolulu should have some
hay In the government of 'the city In
which we live. We are 'not .getting
bur prnper"share of the Impro.cments
now. t might speak particularly as lu
roads In and about the city. Where are
tho Improvements being put? Out
around Diamond Head and the like,
while tho roads In which the poor man
lives are left with nits tn them. 1
could give you other reasons In favor
of municipal government but this one
question of roads Is enough.
W. C. Weedon I am In favor of a
municipal form ot government for Ho
nolulu and that, as soon as possible. 1
fall to seo tho use 'Of delaying. Why
shouldn't 'we go along with forty or
fifty thousand people. Instead of wattlnr;
until we get twice the number? Tho
time Is' ripe now. Go ahead and get n
good charter and then let us have a
municipal form ot government. Ot
course.thero Is bound to be an IncreaJo
In taxation but It la my firm opinion
that, when the taxes are equalized, ttuy
will not bo so high. What we want Is
to educate the people and one enn'ner
er begin too early In the matter of
T. W. Hobron I nm of the opinion
that we should go slow In this matter
ot municipal government. Wo are not
ready for It yet. I believe In beginning
a consideration ot the matter now but
I am against presenting It to the next
Legislature for consideration. Let tho
matter stand over tor one session and
let all the people study It carefully.

Diocese ot Honolulu..
'My Dear Drethren:
'Since asking for your attendance at
an extraordinary session of the Synod
on Jan. 7, 1901, new light has been
thrown on tho situation, from which It
becomes evident that It would be pre
mature to come to a decision Immedi
ately on the principal matter I, had to
lay before you. As the position be
comes better understood, 1 shall bo
able to consult with you on a surfr
foundation than that on which I had
supposed action could be based. I,
therefore, postpone the meeting of thi
Synod to a future day ot which due no
tice will be given. .

One of the most esteemed Chinese
merchants, and a large property owner
In Chinatown, Is ery much aggrlcvnj
over published statements, regarding
that part of the city. Not desiring, io
appear aa complaining against the nu
thorltles on this score, he wishes to
keep his name out of phnt while let
ting his vIowr go forth. His way of
putting the grievance Is substantially
"It Is too bad to say In the papers
that new Chinatown Is ns bad ns oil
Chinatown. How can that be true?
When we go to put up a building we
have to go to the government for a
permit. If the plans are not right,
they say you make thla change ami
"Wo make the building what thv
want, and they tell ua how to make
cesspools. They must be ten fecet deep.
When we dig eight feet down the wa
ter runs In. We cannot dig any dee;.-
cr on account of the water. They say
all right, let It go. Keep It pumped
out they say.
"Then when the Bewcr Is ready wo
have to have the house plumbed. I
had two or three buildings put up,
They cost me for plumbing bctwet-
$5t0 and $700 each. Deforc the work
Is all done, by and by a man comes to
look. Maybe he says that's wrong,
and then the work has to be done over.
Finally, he says It Is all right.
"Very well, everything ought to be
clean now. AH that the Board ot
Health asked us to do has been.dona.
How can they say, then, that new Chi
natown Is getting as dirty ns old Chi
natown? It Is all new and the refute.

Doard of Health or Into tho sewers.,
"Maybe the Inspector comes to look
and sees a dirty room. Well, he can
order that room cleaned. Tho Doard
ot Health has all the, law It requires
for keeping Chinatown clean. It ritw
Chinatown Is already getting ns bad
as old Chinatown, whose fault Is It?
The owners of the buildings have dono
all that the Board demanded.
"I do not like such statements to be
put In the newspapers. It gives a black
mark to the Chinese owners of property
which they do not deserve. If we 'An
everything that the Hoard tells us to
do, why should anyone talk at the
Board of Health or In tho newspapes
so as to make us .look black?"

ilK, DRIVER KM
OBJECTS TO PAYING TEN
CENTS FOR FARE BOOK
George Green's Plaint in the Police
Court This Forenoon Re
George Green, one ot the hackimm
of the city, was arrested yesterday mi
the charge ot falling to have a book 01
rates of, hark, fare In the leather pock
et which every hackmun is required to
have on the back part of the front seat.
He appeared In the Pollco Court this
forenoon and, on being asked about
the matter, answered that ho did nut
know the book had gone. He had put
one In the proper pluce and someone
must have taken It away. He went to
the police Btatlon and; on applying for
another book, he was told that he
would have to pay ten cents. This ho
considered an ImpoBltlou-and refuse:!
to pay for the. book,- on principle.
Judge Wilcox explained that the rule
was fn tho book and It waB the duty
of hackmen to seo that they did not
Infringe. Of course, some hackmen
might think the rules were an Imposi
tion In some respects but they ha-t
been made and it was the duty ot the
Court to carry them out. With thU,
he turned to the prosecuting officer
and said ho had ridden In three differ
ent hacks yesterday and there was not
one of them that had a book ot tb-
rates of fare.
Judge Wilcox went on to say that
there was a class of hackmen In t'io
city who thought they could tie up tha
government. There, was one in par
ticular, a would-be, politician, who
thought ho could tie up the govern
ment but he would probably run up
against it In the end. As the offenti
was not a very grave one and this uas
the first time one ot the kind had been
brought beforo the Court, ho did not
think he would Impose any fine hut
would allow the defendant to go with
tho warning that ho be careful the next
