COMMUNICATION TO CARTER
FROM JOSEPH G. PRATT
ON GOVERNMENT OF TERRITORY
Joseph O I'raft Is one of the citizens
who compiled with tho request of
George U Carter to furnish him with
their views on the Hawaiian political
situation for his guidance In conveying
information to President Roosevelt.
Having In conversation with a Ilullc
tln reporter divulged tho drift ot a
portion of his letter to the envoy, Mr.
which commission I have the honor lo
be a member."
In this connection, Mr I'ratt quotes
the appeal for the bountj mentioned
mado In the Governor's report to tho
Secretary of the Interior, together
with a resolution having the same ob
Ject passed by tho Legislature The
writer and others had backed up theso
appeals by letters to members of Con-
tlon of tho question as I wish to belgress, Including tho entire Wjomlng
understood to favor leaving the mat- delegation. In response to which had
tcr of tho selection of the major nnd , been received letters promising as
all city officers to the peoplo them- slstance
selves but in order to meet the ob- "I cannot emphasize too strongly."
Jectlon raised by many substantial . he goes on to sa. "the urgencj of se-
first Instance for Congress to gle tho
President or tho Governor the authori
ty to appoint the principal officers of
the municipality, they to be bona fldu
residents of tho city and of tho respec
tive wards or districts represented by
them, this condition to continue for a
limited period. This latter proposition
Is suggested, not that In the mind ot
and ohltlmc residents that the officers
would fall Into tho hands of Irresponsi
ble and Incompetent persons If left to
tho vote of the people because of the
fact that property owners aro In the
minority, nnd as affording a common
ground on which tho extremists favor-
ment cin meet
Draft of Charter.
Mr, Pratt enclosed to Mr. Carter a
draft of charter for Honolulu prepar
ed by a committee consisting ot W.
O, Smith, T. McCnnts Stewart, George
A. Davis, A. V. Gear and J. O. I'ratt,
which was Intended' to be, but was not
presented to the late Legislature for
adoption "It wns hurriedly drawn,
bo Informs Mr Carter, "owing to tho
want of time, nnd not ns carefull) di
gested as should have been, and tho
commission felt that It needed to bo
reformed and more carefully consider
id, but It Is offered to vou fn the hope
that from It may be gained some data
or Information that will Illustrate the
requirements, and necessities ot out
purely local conditions, and which
might not bo npparent or becomq
known to n conimltteo of Congrcs
lmvlnir to ronslder the nassacc of .1
concern affording. In fact, the only I m granting a municipal charter to
lng nnd opposing municipal govern- different claimants by the Hrc Clalnn
Pratt was induced to place the entire tho writer it presents the best solu J
communication at the disposal of tho
Sunday Uullctln with liberty to mako
such a summary of its contents al
might be deemed of public interest.
At the outset Mr Pratt states the
proposition that the Importance, to
gether with the otnclal duties, of the
Governor and other Territorial offi
cials appointed by the President ex
ceeds In Hawaii that of similar olllclals
of any other Territory.
"This unusual condition," Mr. Pratt
says, "Is due entirely to tho fact that
tho organization of territories within
tho Immediate bounds ot the United
States has been made to suit condi
tions nnd meet requirements radically
differing from those which obtained In
this Territory at tho time of annexa
tion, where already there existed a
well established form of government to
which was Intrusted the powers and
duties of administering upon all pub
lic affairs, from tho gravest matters
of government concern nnd ot Btate to
those of matters purely local and ot n
'Following the annexation of tho
Territory of Hawaii by tho United
States the Organic Act among other
things especially provided for the cre
ation and organization of the Territory
into various counties and municipali
ties, the Intent evidently being to glvo
to the peoplo the right to administer
upon nit matters of local or municipal
curing this appropriation, It It Is pos
sible to be had. for man) reasons, but
principally because while an appro
priation has Ik en made there Is no
monc) In the Territorial treasury to
meet In any wa the awards for losses
soon to be made to upwaids of 0700
way whereby tho Territorial govern
ment ns It now exists could be divested
of such powers nnd tho people be in
Plan of Municipalization.
"In the opinion of the writer It Is
hlghlv deslrablo that tho Territory bo
subdivided Into counties, with tho
tho city of Honolulu.

"Thero Is one other matter," Mr.
Pratt continues, "which appeals to tho
writer very strongly and with which,
ns n member of the late Legislature,

Commission, for. although the Terrl
tory made an appropriation of $1,000.
000, thero was no provision for secur
ing the revenuo either b) taxes or by
loans. As soon as awards are made,
claimants will demand Immediate pay
ment. It being a well known fact that
may of them arc In indigent nnd great
ly reduced circumstances because of
their losses and In desperate need 0
Immediate relief There being no
funds available to meet the award
and so much being at stake will give
reasonable grounds for the Governor
calling together the l.eglsliture to paM
n loan bill to meet these demands ai
well as others."
Mr Pratt points out that the cus
toms revenues collected in Hawaii ag
gregate about $100,000 monthl) If
this could be turned Into the Territor
ial treasury $100,000 would be realized
every ninety das, which Is one-fifth
of the amount ot the appropriation,
and claimants could have their awards
met In five equal Instalments at ninety
das each, while the awards would
have an Immidlatc commerilnl alue.

Greatly Desired Change.
"A change of this sort Is very
greatly to be desired In that It would
not only relievo tho Oovcrnor nnd Ter
ritorial olllclals of many vexatious
matters of a purely local character,
many of which have been nnd arc re-j
quired to bo submitted to the l'rosl

would give Into tho hands of the peo
ple themselves tho prlvlicgo nf admin

affairs, the Governor ns the appointee

power of his office, has tho right and

Incorporation of Honolulu.
Mr. I'ratt argues that n i eduction In
the number of Territorial otllccs would
bo effected by county government and
that the ihango could bo mado with
out great additional expense to tho
people, as they would regulate tho ex
penditure themselves 116 goes on to
"The writer bclloves that Honolulu
Bhould be Immediately organized Into
a municipal government within n
county jurisdiction and formed on
lines coextensive with tho county, so
there might not bo a dual set of offi
cers In control of tho offices. Also
that Congress should grant n munici
pal charter to the peoplo and not leave
it an open question to be submitted to
the Territorial Legislature."
He refers to tho Introduction of a
carefully prepared bill In Congress by
Delegate Wilcox, for establishing coun
ties, nnd says that Instead of antago
