ing done something; having shown
our interest in the matter; having
determined to help ourselves, we may
find others helping us in the erection
of a building suitable for the purpose,
an ornament to the place, a per
manent and potent influence in sliar
ing the fut ure of Hawaii due to the
initiative of the members of the
Legislature of 1907.
Act 100 of the Session Laws of 1905,
passed during the very last moments
of the previous session, has some de
fcctSi noted at the time, which should
be amended by you.
It fails to repeal that portion of
other Acts relating to iho same sub
jeet, so that its provisions are prac
tidily inapplicable to those officials
who were formerly required to furnish
personal sureties. And there are
other points that deserve your coiv
The advantages offered by corpo
rate sureties are better understood
and appreciated, and it is now i cco
nized that, as in any other risk, the
beneficiary should pay the premium,
and the Government employees ore
thus relieved from personal obli
gations which ' are sometimes awk
Since the adjournment of the last
session many perplexing problems
, have arisen with reference to the
practical working out of the relations
between County aud Territory. By
liberality and the good judgement
shown in County officials, progress
has not been hindered, although many
points involving grave principles
have been set aside or postponed
rather than determined. It i hoped
that you may be able to cope with
those that can be settled by Leg's
latrve action: ' and now that the
Counties have proved their worth,
such other questions as can bedeter
mined by the courts alone can be
submitted to them for decision with
out incurring the charge of ulterior
motives or designs on the Counties
Tha last election was noteworthy
in the large number of officials voted
for and the dispatch and intelligence
with which our voters acted. Locally,
the contest was close, and as is so
often the case with the Australian
ballot, there arose grave questions
as to the intention of the voter,
Human nature is so diverse that it is
impossible to expect that the large
number of men who,' from . necessity,
have the counting of the ballots and
the recording of the results, will all
be able to decide in a uniform mdnner
the nice points that are bound to
arise.- It may be safely stated that
even the very Inspectors of Election
if transferred to other precincts,
would themselves reach a different
result upon a second count. : And
these conditions cannot be done away
with until the printed ballot ; is abo
lished and the votes are recorded by
machine with automatic accuracy.

Permit me to pall your ntti-nt i'ln
and particularly the attention of the
officials you may sMect- to the fact
that, unnecessary delay mars the
ffieiency of your work, crowds it
along to the end of the session, and
forcrs a large number of Bills 1o be
rushed through in order that they
mav reach the Executive before ,n
limit of time expires. This causes
inexcusable typographical errors. It
almost precludes a proper and deli
berate examination of an intricate
Bill, requires the Executive to set
aside and poeket-veto those concern
ing which there is the slightest doubt
and, further, it absolutely prevents
any opportunity for reconsideration
or amendmet. It gives grounds for
the criticism that our laws are often
ambiguous and indicate a lack of in
telligent work in the Legislftive as
Tart of this could be obviated if
Bills were passed upon in the early
part of the session, and much of the
unnecessary delay could be avoided
if Bills were not referred to commit
tees, there to await their pleasure,
perhaps only to bo pigeon-holed, but
let action on them be postponed to a
givcu day prior to which the proper
cemmitees are asked to examine and
Report on them. Failing such a re-
Siort,' the Bill comes up automatically
or action at the time set, and then
may be rejected and lost. Or if the
time be granted by a vote of two-
thirds of the member?, falls to the
bottom of the list and no longer ira
pedes other measures already under
With such a plan in operation, the
friends of every Bill will see to it that
the reports of the committees are
ready and at the given time would
be r re pared to defend their measures.
pn the other hand, those opposed to
a measure could not delay action up
The records of the previous session
show that of the 103 Acts passed, 40
of them were received by the Execu
tive on the last day of the session,
and an additional 20 within the last
ten days. On March 16th, the 25th
d?y of the session, but four measures
had passed the Legislature, and two
of these provided funds for its own
expenses. With a little care, I am
sure your session can improve upon
