The Hoard of Supervisors of the
City and County of Honolulu should
b'o guided In their dealings with tlio
Mayor by n purpose single to the ad
vancement of cfllclent government
while striving to understand and per
fect the municipal law.
llroadly put, thu responsibility
plated upon the Supervisors Is to glvo
the people (list-class lesults under a
law that Is probably as Incomplete
ganlzntion is icprccnted by a Mnnr
who acts not on his own Initiative
and opinions, hut nccotdlng to the
direction of a lolleitlon of politicians
posing as his managers. This city
tins already had enough of that soit
of executive authority, and even the
Civic I'ederatlonlsts may bo able to
appreciate tho follies committed tn
the last election.
This, however, Is not the Issue for
Tho people seek progressive, intel
ligent governmental service. The Su
pervising, as tho Legislative author
ity, have tho principal responsibility
to carry. The Mayor has become tho
llguiehead of ceitaln "political ad
visers." Tho Supervisors' duty Is to forco n
complete Interpretation of tho Mu
nicipal Act In order that the Legisla
ture now In session may make such
! amendments ns well perfect tho very
Imperfect law, and thus prevent a
repetition of tho present conflict that
appeals to the averago citizen ns n

eon for their support.
"I must ndmlt that the prisoners
nre In direct competition with citizen
labor. Hut when I drafted this bill I
did so with the Idea that the prison
tdiould become self-supporting, like the
l)os' Industrial Home.
"in a shoit time we will find other
Institutions, liku the Maternity Homo,
and thu hospitals, springing up for the
Territory to support.
"The prisoners can do their own
shoo making. They can help the in
stitution. Thu Hoys' Indnstilal School
is almost untliely Self-supporting now.
Why c.m't these men confined In pris
on walls, physically strong, mentally
strong, do tho same. Thev are there
dependent on the people to suppott
them. That Is the oul object I had In
drafting this bill."

the fact that thu additional uppioprla

priation of $3500 for the IIojk' Indus

He objected vigorously to thu propo
sition to cut thu prisoners out of road
