General Manager Ballentyne gave his reasons at length why Kapiolani Park was bettor for the review of tile Floral l'aradu from a rapid transit .standpoint than was Alexander Field at Oahu Col lege, at a meeting of the executive committee of the Floral Parade yester day ufternooii. It was a regular meeting fof the com mittee called in the I'romotion Com mittee rooms at I o'clock, and Mr. Bul lcntyuc was present at the request Of Chairman Wall of the committee, to i;lve his opinion of the various sites for tlie review. lie said at once that the Dusouaii park was too small, that Aicxannci Field could not be 'used on account ol the railway not being able to handle the large crowds on tliu Punahou line alone, and that Kapiolani was the real place, us the company could handle any number of persons to t'lid from that place. Mr. Jlallcntyne pointed out to mem bers of the committee that the sidings on the Punahou line would lake only three cars, two running behind the regular one, and that on the King street line the sidings in a siring. 11 seemed tile opinion of the commit tee, however, that the company handle the crowd in some way cxancler Field. Extras could be run on the Punahou line, on the Hotel street line and on . King street, those going out on the two hitler lines having but one and two blocks to walk to the Held at Punahou to see the review. Another tiling in connection with the l'unahou location if Unit "'y persons could walk out there who might be unable to got to Waikiki at all to sec the review. Alexander Field Is particularly adapt ed 1o a review of this kind, the hills Kill-rounding the Held making excellent grandstands, and at Kapiolani it is dif licult to see much on account of the flatness of the land. In regard to the stopping of the cars .so as not to break into the parade, Mr. liallcntyno slated Unit he hail no au thority to stop tliem and that they must run on schedule. Under the terms of the franchise, each passenger who was not taken through to destination could get $100 . i ..ii damages from the company, uuu uu passengers must be taken through to the point they wished to reach. There was one way out of the dilll cully, said he, and that was for u po liceman lo stand in the middle of the track and stop the cars. The police aru the only authority which can stop the running of the electrics, and the man ager of the company suggested Unit on the day of the parade and after It started, police be stationed ut the points where the tracks followed the line of parade and stop all cars until tiic parade had passed. The matter of a Held was referred to a committee composed of VV. E.JSrown, Ri hard A. Cooke and F. C. Atherton, wlio will Investigate and report at the next meeting. 'i'i. ..nihneiit of the board was ho overwhelmingly in favor of Punahou that it is believed tills Held will be se lected, as it 1ms been offered the coin mil tee. The matter of advertising on lloats wan taken up and It was decided that a long as there was no lettering on them they could bo entered, if they had uNlstlu merit. The question was brought up by H proposition from the liiirnhiirt lee Co. to bye a float with fruit, Hsh and (low ers frozen into blocks of lee. This In a way would be advertising, but there could lie nothing objectionable about it, was the decision of the committee. Continuing his statements on needed legislation as begun in an interview ill lie ii u 1 1 eti n yesterday afternoon. Governor Frear declares that a niuch nceded revision of tile Hawaii system of taxation is needed. 'ith reference to this, the Governor said: i i "Questions of linunce usually occupy lirst place in legislative considera tions. Of such questions, none Is of greater importance or of more general interest than that of taxation. It is luxation that furnishes the wherewith al that makes government possible and imposes the limits of its activities and that seriously .touches the pockets of the people. Naturally and very prop-' erly, conservatism is potent in the con sideration of proposed important changes ill methods of taxation, but on the mainland much progress has been made of late years in handling this subject and in these Islands important changes have been made from time to time when clearly desirable. 'Each session of the Legislature turns over more money to the coun ties, imposes no conditions on what is to be done with it, and asks no ques tions as to what has been done with it, until now nearly a million ami a hull' dollars a year is thus turned over for the supervisors to do as they please Willi, except as to a comparatively small part of it. , "The system of elections is such that members of tile Legislature naturally iook upon themselves to some extent us advocates of the needs of their re spective counties as against the needs of the Territorial government. Under the present system, very little respon sibility is placed on the county govern ments or on the voters of the respec tive counties in money matters. "There is simply the great Territorial money bug, and the question is how much can be drawn out of it for the counties. The whole system is loose, illogical, unscicntille and unbusiness like.

Proposals. "llow should the sources of revenue be divided? Naturally, the counties would have thu sources of most ofi tliem from which they now collect rev enues themselves, us, for Instance, the receipts of their local waterworks, lines und costs of magistrates' courts, li cense fees, and perhaps they should! also have the liquor license fees. The Territory would have many of the minor collections which it now makes and enjoys exclusively.' The main ques tion is, llow shall the principal taxes be divided? "There ought to be little or no dilll- eultv in settling this uuestion: and itl involve turning the matter of assessing, and collecting taxes over to the coun-i tics. It would seem to be just as ad-I visable even if the Territory should , continue to assess and collect the .tuxes, hut tlie question arises here whether, it would not, especially under these circumstartces, be just us well to turn the assessment and collection of tuxes over to the counties. "Tills division also does not neces sarily involve the rate of taxation be ing lixed by tlie county governments, and yet here, also, it might be us well ! to go u step further and permit them to lix thu- rate, but within prescribed limits. The limit might be mudo one per cent., as It Is now, and tlie super visors be permitted to make It as much lower as they please. This would tend still more to lix responsibility upon them and to compel the voters to take an interest m the elections, beuiuse there would lie a conspicuous direct MLHELMINAA TRAIN FERRY MISS KESTARICK TO BE MARRIED should be settled here, us it is fust ,.,,,necl ion bet ween the supervisors and coming to be setUed on the mainland, the amount of money which conies out though to some extent for different rea- j ,,f ,., , voter's pocket. sons.

This division Imp pens to conic out uliout right, in com parison with the revenues und needs of the Territory and the counties, re spectively, hitherto us shown by expe rience. "Property is taxed In the location in which it Is found, and naturally Is a proper subject for local taxation. In j the case of an income tax, the Income, may be derived from property in ilif-1 feretit localities, anil it is difficult to draft any law which would satisfacto rily distribute those taxes among the different counties. They would natur ally be Territorial taxes. The same Is true of inheritance taxes and Insurance taxes. There slioild be an exception, however, in certain property taxes. Property which is used In communica tion, either of intelligence by electric ity or otherwise or by transportation in vessels between the Islands or from the Islands to sliins ut sea, or between the Islands anil thu mainland, should be taxed by the Territory, us they ure not locul mutters. Benefits. "In this way, tlie Territory on the one hand and the counties on the other would be entirely independent. Each would get th credit for what It saves und the tuxes. of each could be raised' or lowered according to the needs of each without unnecessary and dllllcult complications with the other. "The only method which has proved effectual Is that of dividing the sources of revenue, leaving properly taxes en tirely to local governments and giving to the state other taxes, such as income taxes, inheritance taxes, taxes on rail roads and other public utility com panies, running through the state und not belonging to nny one county "It might be well to go still further and require the supervisors to lix one rate for running expenses and another rate for permanent improvements, tlie two together not to exceed olio per cent. This would furnish an addition al Inducement to the voters to hold their supervisors to strict responsibil ity und to see tht only the best men were elected, for It would be to tlie Interest of the voters to keep down the running expenses as far as possible and have as large n proportion of the taxes as possible go to permanent improvements."
