HONOLULU HEALTH ANDJIIO CITY GOVERNMENT
How many business men would call on the Legislature to
change the law relating to corporations in order that one
(jcrtain corporation might get rid of an inefficient manager
That is the position taken by the men who want the Ter
ritorial law amended to rectify the shortcomings of a city
What the present situation requires is a change and a
most radical change in the head of the health department
of the City and County of Honolulu. That's what's the mat
ter. To amend the law and allow the same old official condi
tion to exist within the city is worse than foolish. Efficiency
in the official obviates the necessity of tinkering with the
' City and County Physician Mackall has had the benefit of
the doubt right straight through. This paper does not know
whether he has done politics or not. He was first appointed
to the present office by the President of the Board of Health
a few days previous to the duties being taken over by the
City and County.
But the fact that the rccenl case of cholera is traced to a
poi shop that he claims to have allowed to remain open on
the say-so of a Supervisor is quite sufficient cause
to warrant his stepping out of office and giving way
to a competent man who will at least know what is going
on in poi shops at a time when poi shops are deserving es
BUSINESS MEN ARE AROUSED AND THEY HAVE A
RIGHT TO BE. The losses, unnecessary sacrifices in lives
and money, cannot he estimated.
, OFFICERS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ARE
AROUSED, AND THEY rlAVE A RIGHT TO BE. There is no
earthly reason why they should sit idly by and watch a nin
compoop management of health matters in the city without
a good loud-voiced protest.
Therefore the whole situation IS UP TO THE BOARD OF
SUPERVISORS of the City and County of Honolulu. They
cannot evade the responsibility either today or at a later per
iod when they may, by reason of their inactivity be held to
account for the withdrawal of legitimate power from the
The Board of Supervisors should hold a special meeting
to consider the situation.
If they do not have a sufficient appreciation of the tem
per of the people to start an immediate and radical change
m the administration of the office of City and County Phy
sician, then the Legislature will of course have to shear the
city officers of their authority. And the people at the next
election will so completely shear the present city officers of
their official positions, that they will think they arc skinned
! There is much talk of too much politics.
: Just what this term is intended to cover varies with the
indvidual who uses the expression. But one tiling should be
remembered EFFICIENT GOVERNMENT IS GOOD POLI
TICS, and letting things go till this town is tied up in quar
antine is fool politics that will overwhelmingly defeat every
man and every party in any way responsible for it.
The Board of Supervisors got rid of a oad Supervisor
they deemed incompetent, the City and County Physician
is a failure under the present test.
If the Board of Supervisors can't straighten out the City
Physician's office the people of the City of Honolulu will, and
that right suddenly.
