Governor Vetoes Electric .A I'ill granting n francliisi? to a
Franchise Kill. number of representative! people
of Wailuku and Central Maui to enable them to esta'.-.'isli tin elec
tric light and power plant for the towns of Wailuku and Kahului,
was recently introduced into the Legislature. The. bill was drawn
in the usual form and as it would be of great benetit lo the towns
in question, and possibly to t lie promoters, the passage of the act
was looked forward to with approval by practically all of the people
of Central Maui.
Those who had tried to get franchises in the past were sceptical
as they well knew the attitude of certain vested interests and felt
that every obstacle would be thrown in the way to prevent the
passage of the bill.
Amongst other things a bill was introduced into the Legislature
called the General Franchise Hill, the terms of which were so drawn
that it would give to the corporations established on the various
Islands and already using electricity for their own private pur
poses, what amounts to exclusive rights to their own particular
This scheme was detected n time and defeated by those who
stood for the rights of the people as opposed to the interest of
corporations. The bill in question, known as Senate Bill No. 04,
was passed by both Houses wit hout a dissenting vote and went to
the Governor for his signature. The Governor vetoed the bill and
we would like to call attention to the reasons given which read as
MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNOR.
"The day will come when this community will rcgres the issuance
of franchises now in existence. Under tho present method of ob
taining a franchise there is divided responsibility. It is but natural
to think that Congress will safeguard our future and that we need
pay but little attention to those matters here, whereas, when Con
gress is presented with a bill carrying a franchise requiring its
approval, the same having already been passed by the 'lerritorial
Legislature, they of course consider it fully represents all local
demands and may hesitate to interfere.
"Few realize the value of perpetual franchises, such as have
already been obtained. It may be said that Congress is supreme
and can abrogate them, but even Congress is subject to the check
of the Federal Supreme Court, and the question of vested rights
is a strong one. We should see to it that every franchise passed
locally receives the greatest scrutiny and protects in every way
possible the rights of the people.
Prominent persons have repeatedly tried to get franchises in
the past for the purpose of furnishing light and power for the
town of Wailuku, but heretofore havo failed through tho opposition
of those who would have been better advised had they helped the
proposition along. News has been received that both the House
and Senate bave overridden the Governor's veto and this is as
it should be for the towns of Wailuku and Kahului cannot help but
be benefited by the establishment of an enterprise such as is con
templated by the promoters.
Promotion "A pink shirtwaist and a plain white vest
In Excelsis. In a laundry met one day."
That's the way the song goes in ''The Grand Mogul," the newest
musical comedy tickling New York crowds, in which the Governor
of Hawaii is made a sacrifice to the glorious cause of promotion of
a knowledge of these islands. Maud Lillian Herri, on the stage, is
the daughter of the Governor of Hawaii (but she doesn't marry
any Jap in the last act). The play, as described in the New York
Sunday World of March 31, reveals palm trees, hula hula girls and
Uncle bam s pavy to great advantage, the throne in tne piece is
modeled after that once known in the Honolulu palace, although
the character of the Governor of Hawaii is not modeled after Lai
ter. Thus does King George become a martyr to promotion. In
this role he may still live to be a blessing to his country. Referee.
