MR. CAMPBELL'S WATER
Forced by the torrent of ndverso
criticism, tho Superintendent of Pub
lic Works has finally Issued a formal
Btgncd statement In defense of the
recent nrbltrary order Increasing the
water rates for Irrigation purposes
In tho city of Honolulu
This statement Is published In full
In another column,
Though It has the slguaturo of tho
Superintendent of Public Works nnd
has apparently been shaped up as a
broadside of convincing evldenco to
enlighten the benighted taxpayers
and property-owners of tho city of
Honolulu, the Superintendent of
Public- Works has dono nothing but
blow a little smoke nbout what lias
been dono during his administration
'with no criticism of thoso who went
Ho linn not ndded anything, In sup
port of his contention, to that which
has already been published In his
Interviews given this paper.
The fact Is that tho Superintend
ent "of Public Works has arbitrarily
Jumped the rate for Irrigation water
used by the householders of Honolulu
some twenty per cent. He has mado
an order that will Increase tho ex-
ik ..se of keeping un the lawns of
this city. He has Increased tho bur
den of taxatidn for the householder
who takes pride In his lawn and gar
den. He 'has thereby put a premium
on the dilapidated grounds.
All this Is done for what? Keller
of tho people who take water along
Is there any wonder that no ona
has yet been found who will endorse
or glvo haff-liearted approval of this
ridiculous new order, whllo even the
mon to whom the Increased expense
of lawn" Irrigation will mean com
paratively nothing condemn the ac
tion ln-the most positive terms be
cause It is u direct mow ai Hono
lulu tho lieautlful?
In tho statement Issued by the Su
perintendent of Public Works that
official points to tho saving of ex
penso anado by the operation of the
Nuuanu reservoir bounded on this
side by that famous Nuuanu dam.
In the face of that saving, he ad
vances the rates for water to the
householders whoso front yard Is not
all walks and pathways.
A saving of cxpenso In tho opera
tlon or tho department Is celebrated
by an increaso of cxpenso to the
proporty-owncrs of this city.

OFFICIALISM ANDTIIE PEOPLE.
United States Senator Halo haB
undoubtedly decided to retlro from

"Senator Halo Is autocratic,
aristocratic and has always held
himself nloot from the great
mass of his constituents. We
do not feel that loyalty to him
which we should have for tho
man occupying such an Import
ant position. Tho young Repub
licans of tho Stato do not want
Kugcne Halo reelected, and tho
people feel that the time has
come for a change."
