SIZING UP OUR MUNICIPAL SYSTEM.
If the wocl that 1,111 he said of th- City and (ounlv of Honolulu is con
tained in the reporl lo the I liamhei ol C ommen e by Mr. 1 I. Gooding
I-'ield, then the administration ol the (. uy and I ount) of Honolulu is not a
lithe to bad as mnelenth' the population hae been led to behec.
As a matter of I act, when we consider thai local municipal government
has been established against hitler opposition which operated to make the
law as unworkable as it could, and that the system was an experiment in its
adaptation of mainland methods to conditions here, and was new to nine
tenths of the population, under all the considerations the Bulletin
wishes to go on record as declaring that County government has done
mighty will, and will compare ery favorably with the Territorial adminis
tration, past and present, for economy of administration and efficiency,
first of all lei it be noted that in all this search of the records not one
trace of t line of graft has been found to charge against the City and
County of I lonolulu
If it be said b the Big Business man thai the inefficiency of labor on the
roads is graft in a disguised form. Ik Day Laborei will point lo the ex
ample drawn b Mr. I'leld that the Territory has money on which it is pay
ing four per cent interest lying idle in the treasury and the City and Coun
ty when short of funds is forced to pay five per cent interest on registered
wairanls. One is the result of inefficiency of the individual employed; the
other is the product of inefficient legislation and the "good citiicn" is as
much to blame as anyone.
Second, the Field rctorl has brought forcibly to public attention the fact
that Hawaii should have a charter revision commission lo more thoroughly
study and readjust the city and count) responsibilities in their relation to the
lcriilori.il government. B this we do not mean that a complete upheaval
will be or 'hould be made in the city and county governments of the islands.
We must remember, however, that wt of Hawaii have filled upon our com
inoiivvrallh a combination of mumcipil systems that have worked well in
various places on the mainland. We had to try them out before we could
determine how they would apply here. Now the lime has come when the
permanency of the so-called county government is accepted, and we should
do our utmost by careful study to adjust and improve, the action being
based on oui own experience.
The worst indictment Mr. Field can bring against this Qity and County
of Honolulu is to show a "total possible annual savings" of $94,000.
An analysis of this saving carries one right back to conditions for which
all elements arc responsible, and also to the Territorial as well as the munic
For instance, one of these Hems where Mr. Field proposes lo save. is.
$12,000 paid the Hawaiian band. l there any considerable number of
taxpayers who wish lo give up the I lawaii.111 band) We believe if the ues
lion were put to a direct vole of the taxpaymg population as a plain issue,
the result would be overwhelmingly for not only the band but a larger or
ganialion. Incidentally Mr. Field showed that he can make mistakes, as
his figures of band cost for 1906 indicate that he was ignorant of the fact
lli.it the band was absent from the islands for about si months of that year.
We must have accuracy and efficiency on the part of our experts if we are
lo draw correct conclusions,
'I he bald statement sort of a guess as it appears to some readersis
made that $50,000 can be saved in the administration of the road depart
ment. Former City Fnneer Gere savs he would like lo know where this
saving can be nude Mr Field's report suggests bringing foreign firms in
to the list of contractors bidding on street construction, but we doubt wheth
er ruch a plan will meet Willi favor in this community pledged so strongly
lo home production as well as citien labor.

A avmg of J.10,000 is estimated in the sanitation syslcm. Everyone
knows that the conflicting authority between the City and Territory in this
instance 11 bad business just as it is between the Tenitorial Department of
Public Works and the Citv Road Department. It is a mailer of opinion
whether money would not be saved b placing more authority with the city,
and the exact facts cannot be known until the Terrilotial administration is
I subjected to the same searching inquiry
we have an added argument for revision and adjustment, lo nevent dupli
cation ol work and conflict of authority.
Mr field proposes to cut out the Mayor's salary and suggests that the
Supervisors spend a good part of thei. time each day in the city offices.
I lere is anolhei chance for a difference of opinion, whether we should make
the Siiierviois do more or elect a mort efficient Mayor and pay him well.
Other item of economy arc suggested in the fire department, the County
jail, the Ireasuier's olfice, the caic of paiks and school grounds and of
I he comment on the City and County Attorney's office sounds decidedly;
prejudiced on account of the arbitrary comparison with a city of the ptain
land rather than the former and present methods of handling the same public
eivue in this Territory.
I akc the rcorl all in all, ihe Bulletin believes that it shows the
Board of Sucrviors of the City and County of Honolulu and our officers
generally to have performed their duties very well indeed. Not one wotd
i' suggested that reflects upon their integrity. The clement of efficiency is
not o strong as could be desired, but after all is said and done .we believe
Honolulu will shape up well m compirison with any municipality of the
mainland, and the experience of our people in municipal administration is
The investigation should be continued to include the Tcr11lor1.1I adminis

eventual adjustment by a charier commission provided for by the Legisla
