WHOLE ISLAND PLAN
They Also Decline to Hold a Con
ference With the Charter Com
mittee of the Independent
A meeting of tlio Charter Committee
of tlio Republican pnity was held last
crcnlnit, there being twenty-four mem
bers present. The first business of tlm
meeting was the report of tlio statistics
committee by Its chairman, K. A, Mott
Hinltli. Some of tho figures prescntel
wero as follows: Police, Honolulu,
JOG. 000; outer districts, $8,500: public
works for tho next two years, current
for Honolulu, $858,000; permanent Im
provements. Honolulu, $612,000; outer
districts, current and permanent, $15,
000; pub'l hcllh, Honolulu, past year,
$90,365; outer districts, $2,400. J. H.
Hoyd, a member of the statistics com
mittee, str-tnl that tho estimates fur
the next yrrr would likely be less on
account of the udiutlon in salaries In
the Hoard of Health. The report went
on to give the expenses of public In
struction, $302,000 and outer district,
Tho next business was the reading of
a paper by Clarence M. White on muni
cipal government and the proper boun
daries of tho city of Honolulu. Tliu
paper Is a very long one nnd Is filled
with good, sound reasoning. Mr. White
said that If the Committee was author
ized simply to framo a charter for the
city of Honolulu, then It was competent
for tho city to establish tho limits of
such city, but not to Incorporate .1
county government with It. In the
United SUtes the unit of n county Is a
township. A township Is the space
which a city may ultimately occupy. It
was beyond the stretch of probability
that Honolulu could ever cover ttvj
whole Island. To mako a city govern
ment control a larger area than It will
ultimately cover Is to lessen Its effi
ciency. Ho was In favor of n city government
for Honolulu, because It would make
needed Improvements which would cn
hanco values to such an extent that
tho extra taxation necessary to accom
plishment would bo an insignificant
factor. The payment of city taxes Im
poses a judicious expenditure of the
same. In his estimation, the city of
Honolulu should comprise the populous
portion between, say, the western
boundary of Kamchamcha school and
the road on the east side of the Tram
ways stables, the sen on the south and
a boundary line that would Include
Pacific Heights and Punchbowl slope.
Although tho county Is the unit of
the territory, and tho township of the
county, n city Is not n unit of either.
It Is a corporation with separate offi
cers, separate taxes, separate ordi
nances, and is only nmcnnblc to the
general government as defined by Its
charter. Mr, White believed In a gen
eral county organization first. It i
county government should prove Inade
quate to our needs., then he believed
a city Incorporation should be entail-
llshed. If It were the sentiment of the
committee, however, that n charter
should nt once bo secured, let them
make tho limits of tho cjty compatible
witn an emcient nnu equunuie admin
istration of its affairs.
Philip I.. Weaver, vwIiq has madn a
special study of the subject, argued In
favor of restricting the limits of the
municipality to the district of Kona,
but Incorporating both county and city.
It would prevent tho Legislature from
afterward erecting Oahu Island Into a
county, putting on Honolulu the blun
der of two sets of officers. He showed
that In some Instances the Statu of
California contributed to San Fran
cisco city Institutions on tho ground
that they were n benefit to tho com
monwealth. W. O. Smith was favorable to jr.".
Weaver's Idea, but thought the desire
of the community ns n whole Bhould bo
ascertained to bark any proposition tor
A. V. Oear, although a signer of tho
whole Island report, liked Mr. Weav
er's plan and said his former action
was taken with a view to obviating two
sets of officials. The plan was to adapt
the piescnt laws of the Territory to tho
city. Honolulu nlrendy had Borne of
tho best municipal legislation In tho
world. However, If counties were not
to bo established by the coming legis
lature ho would favor a city of tho
smallest possible dimensions. Clt
government was desirable as giving tin
citizens control of their own affairs.
J. II. Hoyd thought tho matter should
bo left to a legislative commission
for preparing n scheme of city and
W. C, noo wanted a city government
as soon as possible,
J, O, Pratt closed tho debate on the
motion to recommit the matter with In
structions to tho commltteo to confer
with tho Independent charter commit
tee. He pointed out that the Federal
Government now paid the salaries of
several of tho higher executlvo and Ju
dicial officers, and county government
could bo modeled largely upon present
Territorial laws so that It would easi
ly become familiar-to tlio people.
Tho meeting oted down the whole.
Island Idea, also rejected tho piopojcl
to confer with tho Independents.
