tho rawest salary-grabbing political
ileal that has over been nttempluJ

Tho plan which Harvey and his sal
cllltes tried to put through was the
long-tnlkcd-ut separation of tho toul
ami garbage department so as to pro-
vldo new Jobs for certain politicians
and tlnnw the lontrol of the garbage
department and Its patronago Into
tho hands of Harvo), rem, Achl, et
nl., so as to allow them to organ Uo
In Kakaako In readiness for tho next
election. This pioposltlon has been
simmering for somo time, and was to
havo been sprung (tiilto a while ago,
but clicumstnnces wero not propl
tloitu, and It had to be postponed.
Last night, however, the salary-
boosters stole a march on Charllo

his weather eo out for storms. They

Kcnloha, who had been counted on
to stand with Sam Johnson and with
Hustaeo and Dwlght against tho sep
aration of the two departments, had
been forced to ktny away fiom the
meeting. Archer, acting In his usur.l
apparent capacity of tool for liar-
vey, had received Ills, Instructions
from his boss and had, as chairman
of tho (larbago Committee, favorably
tcportcd tho resolution, and It was
offered by Harvey's man I'rlday
Achl's man, Itatliburn, the ox-po-liccman,
was on hand in tho back of
tho room, ready to receive congratu
lations nnd smilingly bow his thanl-s
when tho plum waB handed to him.
Sam Johnson came, In late, to find
llustnco nnd Dwlght fighting for lilm
nnd for the taxpayers of Oahu Coun
ty. He promptly Jumped Into the
ring nnd proceeded to hand out factB
and figures that made llnrvcy, Kern,
et al., look llko bo many small boys
caught stealing Jam.
Tho nrguments of the Harvey con
tingent wore peculiar. They claimed
that tho health of thu city demanded
that thero bo n now head to tho gar
bage department and It was point
ed out to them that Honolulu was
never more healthful. They claimed
that tho work of tho load department
vviib suffering from inattention be
cause tho Kiud Supervisor was also
in chat go of the gaibago department
and It waH proved to them that
never beforo had tho work ot road
building progressed so fast or so sat
isfactorily. They claimed Hint tho
people of Honolulu wero dissatisfied
with tho scrvlco given by tho gar
b.igo department and figures wero
placed beforo them showing that nov
el beforo has the department had so
niaiij customers and to fow lom
pkilnts. They claimed that tho gut
ten, nro not nlwavH kept entirely
cleai of itibblsli and thu law was
cited lo hhow that tho cleaning of thu
streets and gutters Is not part of tho
work of tho garbago department, but
(nines under the toad department.
They said tho law forbids ono man
holding two Jobs and tho Deputy
County Attornoy stated that this law
applies only to Territorial cmplnsm.
It would havo been ludicrous If It
had not been so painful. J'lior old
Airhcr wits really pathetic. Ills po
sition was pitlnblu, for bn scorned
to obey tho instructions of u boss In
approving tho resolution offered, nnd
when culled upon lo support his stand
with fuels nnd figures, was absolute

of tho community by creating a new

peoplo with additional expense,
Hustace had been expecting this
plan lo lie sprung, but It did not come
off when he thought It would, and
when It was sprung lust nleht ho
was completely taken li suipilse. He
had no ono present to support him
except Dwlght, nnd his only weapon
of offense was his tongue, his ability
to talk longer nnd louder than his
opponents. Ho had no hopo of con
vincing them, for the were not open

themselves from being balked Hut

persistently nvolded pulling the

that they were ready In adjourn un

Hustace (lulled In his desk unci
brought out an opinion wilttcu lis

ilopuitmcnt "Theio is no law and
no reason win thu duties of superin

partment cannot legally bo hold by
ono man tinder one salary." The
law applies only to Tcrrltoilal employes.
"Now, sou see," said Hustaeo, "1
understood till? matter wns coming
up unci some time ago I went to the
County Attorney nnd got this opin
ion. You see, theio Is no law against
Mr. Johnson holding both positions

Cox awoke long enough to state
thai his letord would show that lie

question, but Hustaeo called on Ar
cher for his opinion. Archer a lose to
tho occasion to stato that lie bail
heard some complaints about thu gar
bago not being picked up In the day
llmo hs thu garbage men. They would
come along and pick up n box and
dump It In u wagon nnd if a piece
of paper fell off the) would not get
off to pick it up. Onco hu t.iv," a de
livery wngon leave a balo of hay nt
n stable and when It was carried In
theie was no man from thu garbago
department on hand to sweep up what
had been dropped.
"It seems lo ine," ho said, "that tho
city of Honolulu ought to ho clean.
Tho management of thu garbage de
partment ought to bo separate. I've
got nothing against Mr. Johnson
He's a busy man, there's no use In
talking. He's got fifteen or twenty
miles to rldo every day In his buggy.
If It's u man to bo separate from tho
road depaitment, I think tho clt) of
Honolulu would hu clean. In reg.ud
to salar), I think Air. Johnson ought
to bo well paid. Ho s worth more
than any hum In this town, lion

worth more. If this will bo done, 1

complaints nbotit Hie garbage depait

"If It's the fault of the committee,"
returned Archer, "It's your business
to appoint a new committee "
Sam Johnson punched a liolo In
Mr. Archer's characteristic ar
gument by explaining that tho road

Hustace again demanded the len-
