" 'Reunited, That to nial.e expend
uues umler this resolution, It shall
ie nipt-ssim that all salary lists,
loin or donations, payrolls, items or
r.ili'i la's and supplies, and at t mints
if general expo'usos shall, beforo be
int pieseiited to the Hoard of Super
.Puis, he passed upon by a commit
i.e or ciimnilltces and by such bo ie
Miit"d to the lloiiid of Supei vlBorti
with the reciiiuuieuihition of sucli
i.iiiiiiIiiio oi louiiultteos, and sunn
meetlni; or any Bpcclal incotliit; tail
ed for the purpose of considering ex
penditures. In tithei words, tho Au
ditor Is bound practically by tills res
olution to ls'sue warlants whenever
cnnfiontcd with n certificate of the
City rind County Clerk that the
claims represented l such warrants
have 'been duly passed by the Hoard
of Supervisors, at any rcRUlai nicot
ine or any spcclni meeting called for
the purpose of considering expendi
tures,' disregarding the right and
duty cast upon the Auditor to decide
for himself whether a warrunt tan
lawfully Mile fir not upon all tho
frets Involved. It seems tt me Hint
tho Auditor can not he shorn of his
powers unit duties In this way, even
If.l were to approve the resolution.
The .Municipal Art expressly provides
when the Auditor shall issue wat
units, and casts upon him the obllgn
Hun to determine for himself the le
gality of tho claims and demands cov
eietl by such warrants Section S4 of
the Municipal Act prntldes:
" "Tho Auditor shall Issue warrants
on the City and County Treasurer In
favor of persons entitled thereto in
payment or claims and demands
thnrgeablo agnlnsl the city nnd coun
ty, which hnvo been legally examin
ed, allowed, and ordered paid b the
Hoard or Supervisors.'
i tils provision Is In direct con
flict with the ptovlslon In the leso
lutlon iPiiulrlug the Auditor to draw
warrants upon (he mere ceiilllc.tte or
tho Clerk, whether In rntt coriect or
not, that the claim tutored by tho
wauant has been dub passed by the
Ronid or Supervisors The Auditor
can only Issue warrants In fator of
poisons entitled thereto, and, under
the law. ho issues warrants at his
peril to poisons who are not entitled
thereto, even though IssuVd In good
faith, and neither tho Hoard of Su
pervisors nor any clerk crtn relievo
the Auditor from tho responsibility
d'.rccllj and' expressly Imposed niton
him by law. And it seems to mo that
any lesolutlon appropriating niniicy
should either contain the express pro
vision or Section 84, controlling; tho
Issuing ot warrants, or, at least.
should not contain any protlslon In
del ligation or that protlslon or luw.
"I further object to the link of de
tail In the Hems of expciulltuie pio
v I tied for under tho lesolutlti'ii In
iiiestlou. I nm privileged under the
Municipal Act, to veto cot tain Hems
and approve others; this resolution
has boon drawn to ns practically to
lump alt salaries in one Item under
each department head, thus patent
ing mo Horn exercising the right spo
clllcnllt conferred upon lne by. tho
Municipal Act ot appiovlng ccluIu
Items or an appropriation and dlsnp
putting otheis. (See Section lit,
Chapter 4.) Tho salaries should ho
separately si a led and otherwise tho
Items or genet al expense should bo
Hilrly segregated and IdetitHlcd, so as
to allow mo to act Intelligently In
ci.irtlng nut the duty which tho law
Imposes upon mi', to consider ml
uieiely tho uppiuprlatlon as a whole,
hut to consider Hie same Item by
lleiil, and upon the merits and do
uieiltsor each iiidltldunl item.
"Tho setoud piovlslon or the res
olution in iiuestlon above quoted, gov
emlng th ii withdrawal of money from
the treasury under this it-solution, is!
iipially objectionable. If I lend tln
piotlslou in question aright, it nr-
lunges that tho salary lists and other
Items of expenditure in tho first In- i
stance bo presented to toinmlttct-s of i
the Hoard of Supervisors, evidently
tvltli the power to recommend upprov- j
of getting this' two bundled and llflt
thousand dollars out of tho treasun
so as to ntold the chocks and i,
strnlnts plat oil b lat. upon in- !
Hoard ot Supervisor In slim I It is
the realization of unrestrained got
ornihcnl by Mantling nminilttees of
the Hoard of Supervisors.
"In connection with the resolution
I ! tiuestlun and as Indicating uliu
what haste the Hoard of Supcrvlsois
seem to ho prot coding, I wish to cm I
ycur uttetitlon to the f.itt that this
tery lesolutlon seems unqucstlonnlut
ot provide salaries Tor the payment
or einplotos appointed by elected tr
llceis or the county atld not provided
Tor In the .Municipal Act. I It-rer In
particular to the employe engngt-d
and appointed hy I). Knlnuoknlnul Jr.
Cleik or the City and County or Ho
nolulu. In excess or those allowed 1 1 1 lit
under the act Ho lias engaged these
oinplotes with the upprovnl of the
lloaid of Supervisors, and both tho
I'oanl anil said Clerk hate nttempted
to Incur obligations In connection
with said engagements when tho inw
oxptcsslt provides that before the
City and Count t Clerk can engage
anyone but the Deputy Clerk, and
before thojloatd of Supeitlsors can
either consider or att upon a request
on Ills part for additional clerks or
einplotos, such application must Im
Investigated b lue and lecelvo ms
recommendation (See Section IIS
of Chapter 21 of the .Municipal Act.)
"Chapter J I. Sot Hon t:iS, of the
Municipal Ait has tho following pio
vlslon: " 'livery olllter who shall approve,
allow or pay any demand ou the
treasury not authorized by law, or
dinance or this charter, shall be lia
ble to the city and c canity Individual
ly and un his official bond for the
amount of the payment so lilt-gall)
apprnted, allotted or paid '
"It Is my Judgment that the Hoard
of Supervisors, tho Muo. and any
one else concerned or taking part In
the distribution of this two hundred
nnd flftv thousand dollars alone the
lines outlined In tho resolution un
der consideration, nnd according to
the piogram of ptoccdurc heretofore
iunugiliated hy this iloard of Super
visdis would he liable under said
Section HIS for tho distribution of
the money In question.
"Kor the foregoing leasons I re

proval and do hereby specifically dis
approve, the same "
