f THAT NUUANU FOUR THOUSAND.
f According to all appearances the necessity for more money
o hasten the work on Nuuanu Valley avenue requires that
he Honolulu Board of Supervisors shall rob Peter to pay
A majority of the Board decided to take four thousand
lollars from the permanent paving fund. A minority of the
Supervisors demand that this four thousand dollars shall be
aken from the funds set aside for the improvement and re
air of roads in the country districts. This work is going on
. cooperation with the Loan Fund Commission plan.
The vital point of the whole matter is that there is not
nough money to go around, and to supply money for Nuu
nu improvement calls for a decision on what line of work
hall be let alone or what fund shall be drawn upon for the
me being to keep road work moving.
The Board is unanimous that the Nuuanu Valley residents
hould have the money for their avenue, which is an import
nt link in belt road traffic.
We see no occasion to get into a special state of excite
lent over this particular matter. Certainly it should not re-jlt-in
a lot of pettifogging that will hold up all work, as
light follow a veto by the Mayor.
The whole situation brings to the fore what the B u 1 1 e -i
n has frequently called to public attention the .necessity,
r laying out a broad and competent scheme for dealing
ith the streets of Honolulu and roads of the CoVinty. Once '
, jat plan is made and the program is decided upon, the Sup
visors should build to it as they have the money or as
lecial appropriations, may be made by ba Legislature for
According to reliable information furnished this paper the
ad work now being done in the country is in a condition
here bringing it to a standstill would cause a loss 'of
i oney. It is the County's part of the belt road scheme and
ust he done,
i- The money that is taken from the general paving fund
)uld otherwise lie idle in the treasury until such time as it
all reach twenty thousand dollars more or less. This
tal will he reached about the same time that the Coun
ts better supplied with funds for all purposes.
, 0n the face of it, the public is far better served if this par
ts., ular four thousand dollars is put in use. Now it is dead
' It is mighty poor business to have dead capital held at the
ce of delayed work, while road paraphernalia rusts out.
As for the "politics" in the country road work, the charge
nonsense of the silliest type. It is flashed merely to wor
kpeople who won't take the time to get at the facts, but on
neral principles are willing to cuss politics.
Nothing has yet been presented to show that the four
jusand dollars devoted to Nuuanu avenue will delay per
1 '.merit paving in the slightest. The great source of delay
! fay. is lack of money in th3 treasury, and on top of this
l s proposed to hold a large kind of idle money when the
J ipie need it in the promotion of public business.
1 The B u 1 1 e t i n believes in permanent paving. It also
ieves in completing the Nuuanu avenue and country road
rk that has been started.
