STATISTICS OF HONOLULU, H. I.

During the course of the investigation into the statistics of cities of the United States having 30.000 population or over, the results of which are presented in the preceding article, an effort was made to secure data relative to Honolulu, H. I., similar to those secured for the 135 cities which are included in the tables given in connection with the article referred to. It was found impossible, however, to secure entirely similar data for this city, and for this and other reasons it has not been included in those tables. The data secured appear, nevertheless, important and interesting, and are presented in brief form in the following pages.

The population of this city, according to the Twelfth Census of the United States, was 39,306, this number including the residents of all the territory designated as the “ Honolulu district." The limits of the city are not definitely fixed and it has not been incorporated, the government of the city and its support being under the control of the officials of the Territory of Hawaii in common with the remainder of the Territory. The Territorial records up to the present time have been kept in such a way as to render impossible in many cases an accurate segregation of data pertaining to the city from those pertaining to the Territory as a whole.

The city has about 25 miles of macadam streets and about 52 miles of unpaved streets, which are cared for by 35 persons employed for the purpose.

Garbage is removed by the board of health, 70 persons being employed for the purpose.

The area of public parks in the city open for public use is 193.6 acres.

There is one publie hospital in which 130 patients were treated during the year.

There are no libraries owned or supported by the city or Territory; but one privately owned library, consisting of 1,000 volumes, is open for the free use of the public.

A waterworks plant representing, up to the date of this report, a cost of $1,300,000, and an electric-light plant representing a cost of $60,000, are owned and operated by the Territorial Government.

A number of small tables have been constructed showing the facts ascertained in regard to the police and fire departments, the health department, the public schools, the income and expenditure of the city, and its assets. These data are for the year ending December 31, 1900.
