Honolulu T. II., April 10. -The announcement from the mainland
that Hilo people were considering the advisability of trying to tap
tho live volcano of Kilauea and run the molten lava down to Hi lo
bay and construct a breakwater, has caused a great deal of com
ment here. An important feature of the contract would be the
ability of the labor to work about the hot fluid. It would be im
eossible to construct metal boots or other covering for the feet of
the laborers to enable them to go about the flowing stream. Wood
of the Iron Wood tree alone has withstood tho heat of a lava How
and it is suggested that it will bo necessary to tram a force of men
to walk on ironwood stilts of varying height so that they can wade
through the hot stream of pahoehoe lava.
Tho Legislature makes The Legislature of 11)07 has finish
a Good Record. ed its labors and by this time most
of its members have returned to their respective homes. With the
satisfaction that their labors have the approval of the intelligent
element of the Territory.
This has been the only session of the Legislature of the Terri
tory that accomplished the passage of needed bills within the time

The expenses of the Legislature has been far below that of any
legislature while the general tone of the present body has been
much better and much more free Troin childishness than wus the
Legislatures of the past.
That all of the bills passed were good is not claimed nor wa,s it
to be expected that they would be. 'Unit fake bills still incumber
our statute books was to be expected but the steady advancement
made by the legislatures of tho past shows the tendency of the
members elected to profit by the experiences of their predecessors
and in time to equal the work accomplished by similar bodies on
Probably no member of the House has as great a claim on the
Territory for the excellent work done as Representative Charles

De Bolt Quotes Montesquieu.
A decision was given Monday by
Judge Do Bolt whrriby the execut
ors of the estate of the late George
- Galbreith are refused authority to
enlarge 1330 to tho estate for pay
ment of premium on their bonds.
Ttey contended that such payment
out of their own fuuds would be un
just and contrary to natural justice.
In bis opinion Judge De Bolt says
of this claim.
"It Is a well recognized fact that
hard cases make bad law. I take it
that a judge or court is not failed
upon, nor permitted, to decide u mat
te r a he thinks it should tie, rrga i d
less of law or precedent. No judge
or court should place himself above
the liw, and, as it were, become a
law unlo himself. Nearly two hund
red vears ago Montesquieu, in view
iii.' the tyrannies about him, wrote
this: 'In despotic governments there
are no laws, the judge himself is Ids
In republics, the very nature of the
constitution requires the judges to
follow the letter of the law. Other
wise the law might tie c xplaiin-d lo

"Mr. Edmund Breese gives a po"
ti'biture of the inflexible king of
linance, which is photographic in its
ti lelity. It is drawn with broad,
powerful strokes, yet. free from the
vu'gari.sm of caricature. It is a
picture of a big, strong, human be

character is deftly made without un
due sacrifice of his naturally domi

played by Mr. William Lewers, prov

Senate Overrides Election Bill
The Governor vetoed the Senati
Hill No. 13 on Monday - It is known
as the election bill.
His message vetoing the bill is as
Herewith I return Senate Bill No.
13. which I am unable to approve.
Ti e chief change marie in the law
is the provision for one blanket ballot
vvl ich shall be arranged so that the
candidates' names are printed in
party columns, under a party title,
instead of bring arranged clphabe

the flection law into conformity with
this main change.
(Jules;; straight party voting, irre
spective of the qualifications of the
candidates, is to be adopted as the
most, intelligent met hr of using the
ba'lot, this bill will mean a backward
step, for it will nmkt it far easier for
the cari-h ss or ignorant voter to
propt rly mark his ballot.

"There : no aiii reason for the
