In the bill of Injunction It Is also
stated that by ordinance taking, effect
and commenclny July 1st, 1909, no ex
penditure of public money except for
salaries or pay of officers or employees
or for permanent settlement, subsi
dies or other claims or objects for

vided by law.
Tho plaintiff Is Informed and be
lieves and upon Information avprs It
to be true, that the city anil .county
through lis board of supervisors en
tered upon a contract with J, A. Oil
man for certain work upon tho streetfl
of the city for tho paving of Fort
street between Queen and Ilcrctanla
streets, which work will Involve n
large sum of money and In excess of
five hundred dollars. It is contended
that tho- contract Is Illegal nnd con
trary to law by reason of the fact that
no public advertisement for tenders
hns been made as provided by law
nor was the contract awarded to tho
lowest bidder after public advertise
ment, and that no bill or resolution
provided for such Improvement of
Fort street or the expenditure of pub
dollars was or has been, after! Its In

The report of the suh-commlttco of
tho House on fcenoto Hill, conccrnliig
tho Organic Act amendments, recom
mends that all tho salaries be fixed at
tho figures In tho bllLas Introduced.
The report recommend that the
Legislators rcccivo $800 for each regu
lar session und then says:
The provisions of section 8 for In
creasing certain salaries in tile Ter
ritory havo also been pending beforo
the committee for over a year past.
After full consideration your sub
committee recommend that the sal
aries be fixed 111 accordance with the
schedule orginally contained in this
section of the bill. The salary ot
$10,000 for the Governor Is $2000
loss than was paid by the Republic
of Hawaii to Hb President; and In
view of the many and expensive so
rial functions required of- the Gov
ernor of Hawaii, a part of which are

WHEN TIME COUNTS, USE THE

Federal Government; nnd In 'View of
the conspicuous location ot HawaU
at the crossroads of the Pacific, wo
deem It proper that the salary should
be Increased to $10,000,
The Secretary of Hawaii has many
responsible duties, and should al
ways be a man fitted to fill the oftlca
of Governor during 'necessary ab
sences of that official from the Ter
rltory. To secure such men tho sal?
nry should be raised to $5000.
The office of United States District
Attorney In Hawaii Is a very import!-
ant one, nnd the present salary ot
$3000 Is utterly Inadequate. i
The salary of the United States
Marshal should bo fixed at $4000,
which Is the sum paid In Arizona',
New Mexico nnd Alaska, while In
the District of Columbia the salary
In 23 States the district marshal's
salary Is $4000, while in 12 districts
the salary Is $5000, nnd In three
others $1500. ,
Your subcommittee believe that
the legislation contained In this
measure is vi-y important to Ha
waii. And in view of the thorough
consideration which tho Committee
on the Territories Iiob given to the
various propositions contained In
this bill during the past two years,
we recommend an early and favor?
