From Supervisor Hatch, now on

the report would lose much of lu
element of testimony: and it Is as the!
evidence ol an eye-witness that thl
!s offered.
At the outset it may be stated that
no appeal is made to the political
partisan, nor to the purist, who is sat
iified by no poor human effort in
this world of misery My report and
my appeal are made to the large class
I of my fellow-citizens who axe in doubt
Unfortunately it is easer to rote for
another set of candidates, If in doubt,
than it is to seek out the truth and
make a decision on the merits. Pos
sibly my statement may help some

board of supervisors, the mayor made
several efforts to find a businessman
willing to accept the responsibilities
of the place, and, incidentally, to run
Into the very unpleasant style of per

law wisely authorized the mayor to

and rumors, were rife of financial
embarrassment Yyhea" the ; offer
came to ma it -was hare of any ele
ment of compliment The only thought
which arose was: "Mayor Lane seems
to be earnestly . trying -to find sra
man not connected with ward politics
to fill this place. If he is refused a
third time, who can blame Mm U

if the beast was : aa black a. he was
painted perhaps tad .something to do
with it; also, the desire to De iwe w
criticise with a dear conscience, those
of my age who refrain from sharing
in the common burden . .
Financial : Embarrassment Reasons
On taking my seat in the board it
became apparent that there was some
financial embarrassment This Is a
good . place to underscore this point-'

An Incidental Gain
An incidental gain, of some import
ance, would also result from such ar
rangement, viz: The head of the mu
nicipal government would then not be
made inferior in salary to subordln
ttes. A tendency toward insubordina
tion, certainly a holding aloof, from
team work, has developed in th-i
county attorney's office; attributable
perchance . to the excess in salary al-
lowed this officer. The instance is

Ibat the writer has no claim to make
that every decision of the board In
the past yee.r has been in accordance
with his views; neither-does he claim
that his views were any more likely
to have been sound than those of any
other member; he does not claim that
every department of the municipal
outfit has been above criticism. This,
however, is claimed, and it is the tes
timony which I started out to give:
From - the .mayor to .th'e last super
visor, the city tnd county have been
. served by conscientious men, ; who
have given their very best 'efforts t
serve the people to the best of their
ability. Municipal questions in Hon
oluiu are business problems. They
have been treated from a business
standpoint
