THAT INCREASED WATER RATE.
Members of the Legislature and
taxpayers of tho City and County ot
Honolulu may nnu in tno auyonccu
water rates levied by, order of tho
Superintendent of Public Works one
demonstration ot the error commit
ted by the last Legislature In turn
ing over the revenues of tho water
bureau to tho Control of the Super
intendent of Public Works.
Only a year and a half lias
elapsed, and the Superintendent ot
Public Works takes this now au
thority to raise tho charge for; wa
ter rates to the hodtsehojder.
That means Increased taxation,
not because, more money IB; needed,
but on account of conclusions reach
ed by the head of tho department.
Isn't thut n pleasing exhibition or
the effect of Increased authority.' on
-the size of nn official ,hntband;
Hut tho sponsor or, tlijfl new torm
flf Increased taxation states In do-
tense of tho latest move to burden
the householder with a nioro expen

sarj because the pcoplo doing busi
ness on the waterfront have been
overcharged for water, lo, theso
Many 5 ears. ,
Isn't that another "stnle of af
fairs'' that would do' credit to thu
deliberations of n Home llulo Hoard
of Supervisors sitting In IllloT The
wnUrfront consumers, have been
"held up," so to speak, and in order
to relieve them, the householders of
tho residence districts uro to bo held
up, and forced to pay tho penalty,
Tho hold-up Is to be transferred.
As for tho "readjustment" that Is
being brought 'about by this order,
If is remarkable, lo s.iy tho least.
According to what tho IJullotln
considers reliable information, the
water rates to householders Us now
levied represent a charge of twonty-
rrour 'dollars and thirty cents per
patf?.' Tho new roto Is thirty dol
lars. The Increase In the rato Is so
near to twenty-five per cent, that
there is no fun In It for tho. house
holder with -a lawn to keep up,
! Docs-anyone in the "government"
.building presume that the house-
.holders, of this city Intend to have
the taxes tor water raised twenty
live per cent, and as an evidence ot
their good vlll crown tho manage
ment of the publics-works und Nuu-
nnu dam witty anything but lemons!
Again, tho heart it the depart
ment states that all he has to do to
convince tho publlr that what he
says Is truo. Is turn to tho Ugures
ot the water office,
This is convincing Indeed, ospe
cjally to such or our taxpayers as
remember that only a few years ago
the then occupant of the Public
Works office demonstrated from tho
books of the water office that the

During tho recent flurry In copper

Tho number of different things
that can be dune lo tho taxpayers ot

figures of tho" water office Is appar
ently limited only by the whims of

. Tliero. Is no legitimate excuse for
the Intense, and Increase it is, of
water rales that has been proposed
lo bn saddled upon the householders '
or this city on and after thu first"
day of July. I
If It be true that the Interests ob
taining water from the city system
along tho walcrftont have boon
overcharged, tho only honest way to
solve that problem Is to reduce tho
rale to n figure that will seeiro 11
fair prlco for tho water and pro
mote tho business ot the port. ,
Hut us for shifting this burden
of pnst errors upon the peop'e who
own homes and huv some pride I
the appearance of their Immediate
surroundings as well as the city in
general, It Is outrageous nonsense.
It proves In the first pl.tce that n
Territorial official hns only to bo
clothed with a little unusulil author-'
Ity In order to convcit him Into n
Itnachlno for grinding out lncrensed
taxation. Tins nutnority appears to
warp his judgment out of all rea
son and lead Mil) to conclude that
the public should not bo damned
It should bo squeezed to the limit.
Nothing remains nov? to convince
the citizens of Honolulu thnt tho
proper place for tho waterworks Is
under tho administration of the Clt,y
and County ot Honolulu. The botcn
of Nuuunu dam was bad enough, but
now lo top thnt with an olllclal
lawn-kllllng campaign for the ben-
cflt of the waterfront Is quite too
Onco under the control of tho city
supervisors, tho water bureau In
come and appropriations will be
handled by the repiosentntlves or
the pooplo who are responsive to
public opinion, nud the cud of tho
tnx-ralslng and tax-eating regime
will be nt nn end.
Meanwhile, the H u 1 1 0 1 1 n would
suggest that those In charge of the
water bureau for Honolulu should
rescind the tax-raising order thnt
will help the waterfront while kill
ing off the residential lawns and
nllow tho rates torcmaln as they
are until such time as tho Legisla
ture shall novo an opportunity to
meet and place the control of -our
city water "In competent hands.
