BREAKING UP THE STREETS.
Lack ot cooperation between the Territorial Department
ol Public Works and the Supervisors of the City andCoilnly
ot Honolulu is one of the conditions business men, during
their investigations, have found to exist.
The Bulletin is informed that the fault is by no
means with the municipal authorities.
This failure to work together finds expression in the fre
quent digging up of the streets to lay water pipes and failure
to properly replace the macadam. The result is the numer
ous hummocks and gullies that work ruin to the streets and
also to automobiles.
Territorial officials appear to move along absolutely with
out thought for the municipal officers. The streets arc dug
Dp. The earth is put back without much regard for the fu
ture of the thoroughfare, and another item is added to the
long list that is sending the street system of Honolulu from
had to worse.
No good excuse can be given for this sort of thing.
Whether it is due to failure to appreciate official responsi
bility or a surplus of pomposity or simply weak foolishness
makes little difference. The result is evident' and conditions
arc growing worse.
