We recommend that all orders be
signed by the County Clerk, and
countersigned by the Chairman of

In the course of our investigations
we arc very much surprised and dis
appointed at the apparent extrava
gance in the operating of the various
departments of the County.
For comparative purposes wo
have secured the expenses of the dif

Kauai, and find that the latter
County is run on a far more econo

the County of Kauai is smaller than
that of Maui, in fact on a basis of

should pay such exorbitant charges
for the running of the county de
partments? We can find none. Why
should the County Clerk's oflice
here require four men. when the
Kauai County Clerk can run his
alone with an occasional assistant.
Our County Attorney's oflice pays

necessary work himself. Likewise

Board of Supervisors, and the elec

efficient business basis, that ex
penses be cut down ito the lowest
oo3ible figure, and that every dol
'ar expended be made to give an
