FOR CRITICS OF COUNTY GOVERN
MENT TO CPSIDER, '
W.hen odlcers of tho County gov
ernment get somewhnt mixed up or
thero aro real or Imaginary short
comings In any department of Ha
waii's local municipal organization,
it Is tho favorlto pastime of some of
our cltltens to talk in a very superldr
tone of how much better tho govern
ment would bo, gr hag been, con
ducted under tho ancient centralized
Thce men nro f,o far wrong that
they are hardly wutth noticing, Very
recent Incidents In the history of tho
Territory, however, have again tail
ed to public ultontlon tho absolutely
weak position of tho critlcu of tho
Within tho last week, citizens of
this Territory have witnessed tho ex
hlbltlon of tho Legislature In its wis
dom passing a bill absolutely pro
venting tho ofllccrs of the Territory
or tho legislators themselves Incur
ring any Indebtedness excopt through
a purchasing agent
Tho Governor In his wisdom signed
the bill and made it a law.
Then they all woke up and dlscoV'
orcd that they had no purchasing
agent and no provision for ono and
tho whole thing was a howling fnrce.
Until portions of tho now law aro re
peated and the scheme amonded, tho
departments nre at a standstill
We can look upon this Incident as
part of tho process of education of
our Territorial legislative and exec
utive officers for which taxpayers aro
putting up. Hut tho ponderous crit
ics of the local County governments
h'avo no cause to point the flngor of
scorn, for tho Counties havo dono
nothing to equal this.
'Again, tho Territory has recently
been to great trouble and expenso to
extradite a, Japanese morchnnt who
loft this city after having committed
serious financial and business Irreg
ularities, The local Japanese mer
chants put up 1500. to assist tho Ter
ritory In bringing this man back,
that ho might bo prosecuted.
The first result In the course of
justice after all this troublo and ox
penso Is tho rclcnso of tho Indlctod
merchant nnd phony financier on ac
count of the faulty Indictment drawn
by tho Territorial Attorney General's
Department Tho financier now has
n reasonable time to return from
whence he camo, nnd put th'e mer
