To tho Legislature -of thc'jycrrltory of
The Act of Congeress providing a
government for the Territory of Hawaii
completed the proccsjr'of annexation,
begun with tho Hn'iallan acceptation
of the joint resolution of Congress for
tho union of the Hawaiian Islands with
tho United States of America.
Tho period between bucIi accept
ance, on the 12th day of August, 1893,
and the going Into affect of the Terri
torial Act on tho 14th day of June,
1900, wns one of transition. While tho
Hawaiian Government had come under
tho jurisdiction of tho Government of i
the United States, It still continued to
administer some of the prerogatives of
nn Independent power. It collected du
ties under Its own laws on goods Im
ported from other countries nnd oven
those coming from the United States.
It preserved Its consular relation with
other countries, Including tho United
Stutcs. It continued Its quarantine re
lations sgdlnm the rwt Tit the world.
This quasi Independent status gave
rise to many questions difficult of solu

Tho powers and duties of the new
office of Superintendent of Public
Works, correspond substantially with
those of tho Minister of tho Interior un
der the Republic, with the exception
of ccrtnln specified matters relating to
licenses, corporations, partnerships,
business enterprises of married women,
nnd registry of conveyances, which
wcro transferred to tho Treasurer mat
ters relating tn prisons, notaries nnd
escheat of lands, which were transfer
red to the Attorney Geenral, and thoso
relating to the preservation of laws and
proceedings of tho Legislature, and tho
duty of promulgating executlvo procla
mations, which were transferred' to
the Secrctnry of the Territory.
The duties and authority of th old
Commissioner of Public Lands and
Agent of Public I-ands have been com
bined In one person, the Commissioner
of Public Lands.
At tho present tlmo under the nppro
prlatlons mnde In the Legislative Ses
sion of 1898, tho pay of the heads ef de
partments Is very unoven. While the
Attorney General, the Treasurer and
the Superintendent of Public Works re
ceive each six thousand dollars a year,
the Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion having been formerly held ex
offlclo by the Minister of Foreign Af
fairs who received his salary as such
Minister. Tho annual salary of the
Commissioner of Public Lands Is three
thousand dollars, that of the Commis
sioner ot Agriculture nnd Forestry Is
two thousand, ono hundred dollars, that
of tho Surveyor Is three thousand dol
lars, while the President of tho Uoard
of Health receives nothing.

As will be s?on In tho estimates, I
have placed tho four leading executive
officers in a f by themselves with
nn annual salary of tour thousand Ave
hundred ilc,lars each; such reduction
of pay bclHB consonant with the rates
establish"! for such Territorial nin-eli-
it aro paid by the Federal Gov
ernment. The Commissioner of Public "Lands,
tho Commissioner of Agrlculturo and
Forestry and the President of tho Hoard
of Health are placed In another class
with Balarlcs corresponding to that of
the Auditor. It Is a question in nly
mind whether the President of the
Hoard of Health should not receive four
thousand Ave hundred dollars.
The reasons for these changes aro as
follows: The Commissioner of Pul
lands has now the whole work and re
sponsibility formerly divided among
tho Commissioners of Public I-ands
nnd the Agent of Public Lands under
the Republic. In regard to tho Com
mlssloner of Agriculture and Forestry
It Is desired to develop tho scope of
his department to an extent far beyond
tho field of the old Bureau of Agricul
ture and Forestry in which case the
present pay Is clearly Inadequate. Iloth
of these officers are recommended by
the Federal authorities who are work
Ing for the establishment of nn agrlcul
tural experiment station In the Terrl
tory, for appointment as Commission
ers In the management of such station.
Tho President of the noard of Health
Is ah offlrer Laving at times great and
most critical lesponslbllltles In relation
to the protection of the public health.
It Is obvious that no one would be able
to perform th edutles of this position
as thoroughly without pay as If his
tlmo nnd efforts were reasonably com
pensated. I recommend that tho beginning of
tho first blennlnl period of tho Terri
tory bo set for tho first day of July.
1501, and that appropriations bo mndo
.. . .
My reasons tor this are:
First the flnnnclnl year of the govern-
ment of tho United States begins on tho
first day of July of each year under j
ii .h nnnn-ini ,,nrin,i nn th nr

nl)Io tor Bevernl reasons, particularly
o...... r. . ,
In tho matter of statistics, and official
reports to the Federal Government;
second It would for obvious reasons,
be an improvement In our system to
have our financial period follow tho bl
ennlnl appropriations Instead of begin
ning several months before their pas
sage, as heretofore.
Such an nrrnngement was evidently
contemplated by Congress In enact
ing section 53 of the Territorial Act,
as appears by tho words which refer to
tho regular sessions of tho Legisla
ture bb preceding the biennial periods
for which they make appropriations.
The loss of tho tariff nnd postal reve
nues Incident to annexation, has been
a serious shock to our financial condi
tion. In tho period of 1898 and 1899
the revenue from theso sources was
$2,309,107.87 and the expenses 1331.270.
22 This reduction ot revenues makes It
necessary that a considerable sum of
money should be borrowed for public
Thc reports on the financial require
ments for tho coming period, contain

ment Inromo for 1901 both by the
Treasurer and tho Auditor the. total

00(1, and that ot the latter. 12.17.-..D50.
These estimates assure tho government
sufficient funds for the satisfactory con
duct of the nffnlrs of the Territory, ex
cepting In tho matter of public Im
provements, unless somo unforseen ,
puhllc misfortune should occur call
lng for largo expenditures.
Ab tho authority of tho Territory tn
Incur Indebtedness Is limited and final
ly suhiect tn the approval of tho Presi
dent It Is deslrablo that tho Legislature
should study the question of Increasing
the current revenues by methods which
will distribute the burden of taxation
as fairly as possible and gradually re
duce the necessity of borrowing money
for public Improvements.
The present puhllc debt, not Includ
ing deposits In tho Postnl SnvlngJ
Rank of the Republic of Hawaii, which
havo been assumed nnd paid by Un
united Statps, Is ti.186.400. Tho Unit
ed States havo still to pay $3,235.4:9.

The provision of tho Territorial Act,
section S3, relating to loans, limit the
amount of Indebtedness that may be In
curred In any one year by tho Terri
tory, to ono per centum upon the an
soKsed vnluo of the tnxablo property of
the Territory as shown by the last gen
eral assessment. The assessment for
tho year 1900 showed a total valuation
of $97,491,584: consequently tho In
debtedness that may ho Incurred In the
(list yenr nf tho next biennial irrlnd Is
$971,915.84. and tho same amount or
mnm for tho second year. Tho totnl
Itmn suggested In the Kstlmates Is $1.
910,900. one-half of which may bo In
curred In each year of tho coming pe
riod. Thn report of tho Treasurer shows
that tho sum ot $709,000 has been ad
vanced to loan nccounts from current

funds since the legislative Bcsslun nf
189S. The Estimates provide for the
return or this amount to the current ac
count nnd Its appropriation as current
funds. Although this course Is not'ah
solutely necessary, yet It Is very desir
able that It should be followed for
this reason; a very large part of the
revenues are received from taxes on
property during tho latter part of Oc
tober and the first two weeks of No
ymber. With our present surplus and
the monthly revenues from other
sources the Government will bo out of
funds, as shown by the Treasurer, sev
eral mohths btforo property taxes are
collected, unless the return to the cur
rent account of loan advances as above
suggested, be adopted.
I recommend tho passage of a ,oan
act for n larger amount than at pres
ent required, under which the Legisla
ture at each session may appropriate
funds as may be required, thus obviat
ing the necessity of passing a new loan
bill at each session. Such a course was
adopted by the Legislature of lfflfi and
has been satisfactory.

suppression of the bubonic plague,
