THE ISSUE BEFORE THE SUPERVISORS.
What arc )ou going lo do with our strccts
'lint's the question on which nine hundred and ninety-nine per cent of
tlic imputation of 1 lonolulu would like to licar something definite from the
Hoard of Supervisors.
It is a present da) ;lal issue. It is a problem of the here and now that
Ins a tremendous power for future good or evil, umcrsal proscrity or in
dilfctcnl, aK)logclic, more or less haphazard progress. It must be faced.
A dclnitc clear-cut, busincssliiie and thoroughly progrcssic policy for the
care, reconstruction and construction of the streets of this city is demanded
by llie tapacrs I here is no good excuse why their demand should not be
met with a competent program prcsenkd by the Board of Supcrviors: no
cxcuc unless it be the plea of inabihl) to act. which in the present crisis
would be taken by the public as an admission of incompetence.
"Something mul be done" is the way the general public puis it.
I lie Bulletin would put it stroiger. "Something" is altogether I'M
indefinite. The streets must be reconducted under a system that ..'ill be
permanent; the streets must be cared lor to not only save them from gradual
but none the less certain breaking up but also lo eliminate '.'ic excessive dust
that is being rated as a nuisance.
'I his must be done.
And the mandatory lone of public s-nlimcnt is all the more impressive be
cause there has yet to come from out local governing body an expression
or presentation of broad and efficient policy that gives promise of meeting
The" obVious neCcssifies" of the situation.
'I he dcminds of the present arc impressive. But step to consider a
moment what Honolulu has before it in the fulurc.
The Panama Canal opening tor traffic is little more than a year distant.
Is the business following that 'great event in the development of the world's
commerce to find this town "all in a heap?"
It looks tint way from the present drift of things, a drift that has more
than a suggestion of inability on ihe part of our governing authorities to
properly grap and efficiently cope with the situation.
Citiens and Supervisors, it is a lime for action, not quibbling!
Certainly the citizens must act if the Supervisors do not.

Smith was severely condemned In a
resolution Introduced bv Low and
adopted by a veto Including Low,1
.Murray, Krugcr mid Amana. It reads
"Whereas, tho County Supervisors
and the Territory of Hawaii havo con
tributed liberally toward the support
of the Hawaii Promotion Committee,
with tho understanding that Its ob
Jects were for tho benefit of all tho
people of tho Territory, and,

nnd senseless vituperation should bo,
brought to n halt. Instead of his being (
permmeu lo continue along mc suiinu

raid Low, rising to defend the passage
of his resolution.

Smith Bitterly Disliked by Hawallans.
"While l must admit Hint Minim is

adoption of the resolution Is ill advis

further admitted that Smith bad slnu
