Suffice It to say that, whatever tho
system, stircly none can bo found or
devised that will equal tho present one
for extravagance. For when It Is real
ized that for administrative purposes
alono exclusive of current expenses,
over a million dollars a year Is ex
pended, equal to a tax of J7 a head for
every man, woman and child In the
Territory, that alone aside from Its
oligarchical features, ought to afford
ample reason why a speedy change
should bo made.

that nothing less than complete fran

belief. Witness went on, answering
Messrs. Foster and Durton, to amplify
statements of tho financial account be

ernment. Salaries paid In tho district
amounted to (8000. Tho roads were In
good condition. Tax en paid by the

Road. Board Bond.
In advocacy of the change, let me
present some practical illustrations of
tho working of our present centralized
government, as applied to tho country
districts. As chairman of tho Walalua
Road Board, I afn required by law to
furnish bonds. No salary Is attached
to the office. And yet many of tho sal
aried officials In the central govern
ment, who have tbe receiving and pay
ing of largo sums of public moneys are
not required to file any bond whatso
ever. The people In the country dis
tricts have no voice whatover In tholr
local administration. All officials be-
stricted to plantation labor. There
were several hundred Japanese In tho
district not working on tho planta
tions, but engaged Independently In
raising vegetables, fishing, etc.
Mr. Burton said thcro was no need
to mention tho Japanese, ns this coun
try had a treaty with Japan.
