To tlio I.egi?lnlttro:
I linvo tlio honor to sulMiiit lii'iewitli for vottr consideration intimates for nppronriutious
out of iciu'riil rovfiiucH for tlio liioiinlnl period ending . I tine !S0, 11)11.
l'OH.M OF 1511.1.. Tlu I'jtuiinti't mi' in tlio form of u singlo bill covering tlio items
which lit former MM'ioii have been separated into two bills known in tlio salaries and (eiw
bill. Tins U the twinl praetice el-ewbere. In fnrnier bills it lias not been found practicable
i to liinkv n slmrp lino jf division between tin. two elaes of expenditures. It is a decided advant
age ))oth for convenience, anil for ellicJeney to con-ider together nil appropriations for any branch
of the public service. ' I
In the bill iibuiitted an attempt i made nlo nt more complete and logical clarification
of items and at gre.itcr -iinplieity and uniformity in their wording. The appropriating elaU'O
at the bcginfMiig i lioiiened and amide to conform more nearly to similar elauos in Acts of
Cnngrtvi, and the retiicting clau w at (he end are omitted, with the idea that thcto shall be.
put in the form of a -epiirato, perie'.incnt bill carefully prepared to meet all contingencies, thus
avoiding unnoccvary icpctitiou in a number of bills at each eeadoii and making such icMrictions
npplienblo to the usual minor appro iriatiou bill to which they have not usually been attached.
A.MOl'NT. The climates aggregate $3,.M8,L:ll.00,v1iieli i. $S;I,0SJ.45 lca than tho
otiumted available lcwnno". This should be reduced rather than incrcas-ed unless the ruvcnms
a is increa-eil. Theie will piolmli'ly be additional minor appropriations at the present ses
sion; there me always appropriations of cou-idcrahlo amount at the succeeding cession for tho
eanie period: morco'cr, if one million out of the 'mdlde two million dollars of the public debt
is refunded dining the ensuing peiiod, there must be set nide for sinking fund under existing
laws ."ji.", , ..,. 1", which will be oiTsct to the extent of only alxiut tl.'.OOO in interest saved:
further, if an additional hum is authorized for public improvement, allowance must be made
for both linking fund and interest; the .aim should be also to maintain a working surplus.
The i-tiuuitnl expenditures have been brought within the estimated revenues by omit
ting ollices, reducing salaries, combining services, and omitting or reducing items for other pur-po-es.
.Many of these changes will not result in materially impairing the ellieicncy of the pub
lic service, but in some fa-os the estimates have lictm i educed or kept below the jxiint required
i by true economy find expediency to uiaintiiiii proper, ellieicncy or keep pace with increasing
needs. Indeed, the estimated requirements of the. 'various departments have been reduced nioro
ITUTIIKK NKKOS. Miiny nceils, soiuo of which were presented in my first, niessigo
to jour honorable body, are not covered by the estimates. Without meaning to underrate tho
importance of others, I call your attention piuticularly to the estimate for tlio pay of teachers;
in the public schools, which has been loft at the amount appropriated by the last legislature.
A large inciea-e i- ab-olutely neccs-ary to avoid the exclusion of u large number of pupils or
a material reduction in salaries, which are already too small, or a large increase in tho number
of pupils per teacher, which is already too large. True economy requires al-o larger appropria
tions for repairs and maintenance of -chool buildings, as well as other public buildings.
Additional appropriations are needed also not merely to prc-ervo the present states or
acter, some of which are included in the estim taken, but to meet new needs of an urgent char
to meet growing needs along lines already undeates. Sixfial attention is called to tin items for
medical hiscction in the public -cIiooN, the prevention and euro of tuberculosis, the rat cam
paigns in Honolulu and llilo, tho hydrographic survey and the Hawaii experiment station; also
the iiicieases in items for the care of leper covering hospitals as well as segregation. The rea
sons for these are set forth in the first niessigo. T may add or repeat in regard to thoihydro
graphic survey not only that this is needed for many reasons of vital huimrtance to the growth
anil character of the imputation nnd industries of the Territory, but that this is a matter in
which the (lovorninent at Washington desires to aid tho Territory both by the e.Hudituru of
Federal money for this purioe and by the loan of tho best experts for the direction and eon
duct of the work, provided tho Territory will do its part. The Hawaii experiment station needs
twice as much as recommended, for investigations of vast con-equeliee to the industries of
Hawaii, especially in tho matter of fodders for live-stock, fungus and bacterial dieaes alTeetiug
pineapples and other crops, the improvement and increase of the tiuo crop and othcr.nuatters.
Equally pressing are the needs of tho board of agiiculture and forestry for the preservation nntl
extension of forests and for the protection of industries large and small against the introduction
of new plant and animal jx'st.s and the depredations of tlioo already here.
INCREASE OF AVAILABLE FrXI)& To provide adequate means for the most
pressing needs will ho one of yo.nr most dilliciilt tasks. !Many suggestions wero made in the
first message by which available funds might bo increased, by reducing expenditures for pres
ent work in various ways, by the enactment of new legislation which will render unnecessary
horeafler various expenditures hitherto made, and by increasing the revenue.
The suggested increase of tho school tax and ndditional income tax would meet tin
additional need- of the public schools and the Ilhwaii Excriinent Station and perhaps nil the
needs of the Ito.ird of agriculture and forestry and the hydrographic survey ns well as of tho
board of immigration, besides rendering jiossible new work in other lines, a, for instance, the
impiovenient of marketing facilities for small producers, the establishment of a fish hatchery
and other matters.
I wish to suggest for your careful consideration also tho question whether there should
not bo a. decidedly wider application of tho principle that private persons should hear n material
part of tho cost of special services. There are many such services, much, if not the greater part,
of tho burden of which must necessarily be homo by the public at large, but the special bene
fits of which, entailing also in many instances special cost, are enjoyed by individuals. The
idea is too prevalent that public services should be free and also that there should bu flat rates.
This ii apt to result in extravagance, unfair distribution of burdens and demoralization, lauy
public works or sen-ices may well be Hindu hugely s.elf-supiortii)g, thereby lightening tho bur
den upon the ji-oplc at largo and transferring it in part only to those who reap corrcs'iondijig
benefits, as, for instance, by assessing to ndjoining proorty owners in larger degree tho cost
of street construction and improvement and tho cost of water and sewer works. The Territory
is obliged to maintain n great many landings throughout tho Territory while it eharges wharf
age or other fees for very few of them; charges for tho use of all of them could bo collected
inexpensively and tho proceeds of each landing le applied to its maintenance. The require
ment of meters at tlio oxpciwo of consumers of water from the public water works would involvo
only n trifling original cost but would probably result in greater economy in tho use of water
and consequently greater economy to both the consumer and tho Government; there being less
waste of water there would be less expense in pumping both in the water and in tho sower
works. The taxation of jurors' fees is another example of a different nature among many that
might bo enumerated.
A saving to tho Territory with icrhai not a corresponding incrcaso of expense to the
counties might bo made by turning over more of tho Territorial work to the counties. At
present apparently the counties, are better ofT financially than tho Territory and this difference
will tend constantly to grow larger. Some of the work of tho Territory would mere properly
como within the functions of the counties and might well have liccn placed under the counties
nt tho outset, in, for instance, tho establishment and maintenance of local hospitals. In tho
estimates submitted herewith, there have been omitted, partly becauso of lack of funds and
partly with this end in view, tlic.uyial items for assistance to privnto hospitals of a local char
acter as well as to tho Associated Charities. The llilo nntl Whilnku hospitals have been included
in the estimates because they are purely governmental hospitals in point of maintenance though
not in character. The items for these also may well ho omitted and the county act amended
to confer upon tho counties nuthority to establish and maintain hospitals. Such authority is
already, confcircd upon tho City and County of Honolulu. Tho appropriations for tho Queen's
Hospital, the l.eahi Home nnd perhaps tho ilntcrnity Homo might bo continued on the theory
that these ure in tho nature of territorial rattier than local institutions. Possibly the same is
truo of tho Associated Cliorities also and there .ire other worthy institutions such ns that of tho
icecntly established Industrial Home of the Salvation Army which should receive support from
tho territorial or tho county government, in so fur ns there is need of services
of tin's nature it is probably more economical as well ns more beneficial in re
sults to aid privnto institutions than to establish nnd conduct public institutions. Tho
estimates for the Hilo nnd Vniluku hospitals have been increased by practicallv the amounts
of their receipts from pay patients with a. view to having such receipts turned iiito the treasury
instead of being expended as hitherto for tho hospitals without a legislative appropriation. A
bill is 'wilding fjor n fiom6whnt similar purpose with reference to the Iibaiualuna and Waia
leo schools Again, tho jails might well bo passed over to tho counties. Tluf-u are naturcly
conducted in connection With the polico system, which is already under the control of tho coun
ties. Thp control of the territorial prison, in tho nature of n state penitentiary known as Oahu
n6i,'qyyjA naturally remain under tho Territory. Attho present timo the counties receive
tiro brncflCyf. most of tho prison labor, the value of which would go far to irifsct tho cost of
niaiutennitoo iwjiioh is now lionio by -the Territory.. Perhaps tho district court houses also
nnght well biturucd over to tho counties especially as their caro usually is closely connected
with that of the, jaik Authority might bo given olso for turning over the various water works,
other than tho'IIonolulu wafer works, to the several counties, upon payment to tho Territory
of tho appraised, value of tho works. In tho present transition state the Honolulu water works
should bu retained by the territorial Government.
Savings Jo the comities might bo effected by requiring street improvements and main
tenance to be borne to a larger extent by owners of adjoining property nnd also by requiring
htreet and road work, nt lea!st other than that of mere repairing, to bo done by contract

in this fact. The MAYFLOWER that I am advertising is the Mayflower Quartz & Channel Mining Company
of Nevada City, California. The price of the stock is 25 cents per share, and you cannot buy it for a cent
less in Honolulu, or anywhere else on earth. If you think you can,' just try it, and if you succeed in get
ting n single share I will confess that you are smart. Some people who hare intelligence enough to read
everything else right, except a stock quotation, have noticed a certain Mayflower stock quoted on the San
Francisco Stock Exchange for 9 cents, more or less. And without looking to see that this "Mayflower" is
located in Nevada State, over a thousand miles from our mine in Nevada County, California, they have
joined the crowd of knockers and told people not to buy Mayflower of me at 25 cents, when it could be
bought for 9 to 16 cents in San Francisco, If some of these smart knockers will just get busy and buy some
of this stock and bring it to my office, I will sell it for them and double their money. That is, if they bring
mc the genuine thing and not the counterfeit. On the other hand, it behooves you people who think that I
am presenting to you a square proposition, to get busy and take on a block of the genuine "Mayflower" nt
once. BUY MAYFLOWER STOCK. BUY IT NOW 1 "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet," but
please remember that another Mine with the name "Mayflower" tacked on to it will not bring as much
money as my Mine. When my Mayflower is listed on the Stock Exchange it will be for just one dollar, one
silver plunk per share, Then you will feel like going out behind the barn and kicking yourself because you
did not load up with some at 25 cents per share. It's just like finding money. You don't believe it, do you?
Well, please drop into my office this week and show me where I am wrong, or let me prove to you that I am
right. My latch-string is out. You are welcome. Come in and see me. Get busy. BUY MAYFLOWER
STOCK. BUY IT NOW.
