Mayor Ferri Appoints Entire Board as
Comhiittee to Investigate Condition
of Drive After Value of Highway is
Pointed Out by G. G. Guild.
George. Guild, on behalf tfthe pro-
motion 'committee, was'' the prine'pal
speaker before tlje board, of supervisors
last night, and pointed out in forcible
language vsy Tantulua road should be
opened to automoLiles. At the eonc'.u
aion of the discussions on the subject
it was the .opinion that the road will
soon be opened to automobiles.
Following Mr. Guild, Supervisors
Wolter and Petrie sjioke along the same
lines, and the mayor thee appointed a
committee, with Mr. Guild as guest, to
investigate the question next week.
In addressing the board Mr. Guild
dwelt on the fact that Honolulu was no
longer a village and that it was the
duty of the board to place before ths
traveler every beauty spot of the Inl
ands, particularly the beauties of Tan
talus. It was the opinion of Mr. Guild
that at the opening of the Panama
laaai thousand of tourists would-journey
,to Honolulu, and it would be an
injustice as woll as a loss to the ad
vert sing of the IsIuikIs to allow them
to depart without having. the grandeur
of Tuutslus pointed out to them.
Mayor Favors Opening.
'" Supervisor Wolter followed Mr. Gnll.l
on? the same lines, and a he warmed
up' to hie aubject whs attentively list
ened to. It waa also the cinioo of
Supervisor Petrie that it was time for
Honolulu to wake un to thm fant ih.t
Tautalus was one p its 'best cards,"
as he expressed it.
After the three had been heard the
mayor voiced his sentiment as being
in faor of Hie opeiiins of Tantuin.
and aaid he saw no reason whatsoever
why the road should not be widene in
places aud made accessible for auto
mobiles. It waa' the mayor's opiuioa
that between S30OO and .14000 would
put the road in good shape,' and just
before concluding his remarks inimlnt.
ed ull th tourd, as well' as Mr. Guild,
a committee to invpMliual tl... -...n
lion of the road and to renort back
what steps should tie- taken to make
it passable for automobiles. '
"Prior to taking up the question of
me opening or , Tantuius, "several eitl
sens apeared before the board to make
objections and suggestions to the pro
posed treflie ordiuunce. , Each section
of the measure was read and then die-

pertaining to apecial privilege for au

lances, doctor and police van th
right of way a to jeed. The right
of the gaa, electric and street car com
panies' repair wagons to increase their
speed wa added to the section. '
Object to Load Limitation.
Another section whicn caused eomid
erable discussion was No. T. This re
fers to the load a vehicle Could carry
through the streets. Charles Clark ob
jected to a limit of ix ton, and en
tered into' a lengthy discussion with
county Attorney Weaver over the
clause. Weaver said the law limiting
loads to six tons was in vogue all
through Pennsylvania, while Clark con
tended that it was not and that an en
forcement of such a law would drive
him from business. On promise of the
supervisor to look further into the
matter Clurk expressed himself aa sat
isfied. The length of time an automobile
would be permitted to stand on Fort
street was also discussed, and further
hearing on the matter . will be taken
up at the next meeting of the board.

How four parties can be represented
on each board, which cousists of three

it will be np to the attorney general to
olva for the secretary of tbe Terri

touched upon by the Governor who gave
t up, and although he has the actual
appointing of the inspector on hi
hand, he haa referred tb problem to
the secretary of the Territory. Being
a- problem, knotty and difficult of solu

This is one of the reason, probably
the paramount one, which ia ard to ac
count for Mr. Thayer' desire to be im

of hi successor by the Governor. Given
a successor,' .the secretary of the Ter

credit' of the department, as the appro

meir credit, however, that they etu- '
ally spent loss money by $169.30 than
last year, and also increased their col
lections by .ljSS.3.,5. These fact are
decidedly praiseworthy. On the other
hand, it seems to us plainly ridiculous
to furnish a department with a budget

thus remove the incentive to become
