The passing of a ruler has never been
more slnceiely mourned tliioiigliout
the ilWIIzed world than the late (Jueen
Vli torla. A klne has necr come Into
power with greater piotnlse than I'd
ward the Sewnth.
Some cltlrens may have been mis
led by the statement made by the op
ponents of municipal government that
property In I law nil Is not assessed n'
lis full alue. The only refutation
needed for such short sighted misrep
resentation Is reference to the deci
sion of the Supreme Court In the eao
of the Hawaiian Sugar Company s
J. I Farley. Tux Assessor. The deri
sion riles that the law requires proper
ty to be nxsesed lit Its "full cash
value." This comes prettv lose to full
value and the tax aisestor In cnrrylni;
out the law- assises full cash value on
the home of the small property holder I
n well ni the sugar plantation The
ictrogresslvo advocates will hae to
get up a new- cv use w hen making their
comparisons with the tax rates of Am
Per some reason or other the Advcr
tUer has failed to Impress upon Tax
Assessor Shaw the shoi trainings of
the work done by the Bulletin Job
olllie. Mr. Shaw's award of a second
contract to the lliilletln Publishing
Company does not Indicate that he
finds any fake work or Improper meth
ods when dealing with this enmpan).
When It comes to straightforward
limitless methods the lliilletln can lend
the Advertiser combination at every
point, but deals like that of the Su
preme Court report award are of such
n questionable chararler that the morn
ing organ Is welcome to all the glory
It has received or may reccie there
from. Possibly tile Advertiser will de
ninml that the lliilletln give bond on
this new tax olllce contract. This Is a
natural demand when pioperly viewed.
The llulletln's word Is sufficient to the
business men and government depart
ments. If the Advertiser does not en
Joy the same prestige for honesty and
fair dealing. It Is free to put up all the
bonds it pleases.

"Business Man" rises to defend the
business community ugalust what ho
considers unjustified comment made
by this paper. The business commun
ity needs no defense upon the lines

one, neither new coiners nor k.imaaln
as expects any business man to throw
open his books or tell hit, business to
any outsider. That Is nonsense .
