Passed by the Legislature
HONOLULU, April 27. More
power to the counties, more power
to the Municipality of Honolu
lu; a nearer approach to decen
tralization of government and a
wider range of puhlic possibilities;
a better understanding of public
utilites; many cures for sick laws,
repeal for had ones; mending of
punctured statutes and general all-
round improvement, in the main;
such is the epitome of the accom
plishment of the Fifth Legislature
Numerous popularly acknowledg
ed good laws" have been realized
ind largely numerous vain, or use
less or objectionable bills have found
death, early or late in the session,
is they richly deserved, tho perhaps
a solitary desirable measure here
and there was lost in the shullle.
Most important of results, possi
bly, are such enactments as the pro
visions for iirimigration; conserva
tion of natural resources; represen
tation at the Seattle Fair; the where
withal to enterain big folks from the
mainland; the broadening of county
power anil, therefore of local govern
ment and, by the same token, more
of the Americanization that is de
sired; beneficial legislation for the
aflicted brethren of Kalawao and
Kalaupapa; the'provision or a bos
pital on' Oahu for suspects; simpli
fication and conveniencing of judi
cial systems; protection of food
fishes and beneficial birds; regula
tion of government expenditures;
banking and finance betterment of
conditions or methods; improve
ment in public instruction manage
ment, and the raising of the income
Of the measure killed perhaps
the greatest joy is over the defeat of
the liquor bill. The failure of the
two-county .idea for Hawaii island
is another matter for congratulation,
or so it woidd appear from the
opinions of careful thinkers.
. Of measures not introduced but
talked of, there is regret expressed
that no hills were entered to tax
bachelors or to take steps toward
woman suffrage; the latter would
have had to be a resolution and
would have received more serious
discussion outside the legislative
halls than the former, the former
being more of a joke.
A sign of this Legislature, as nf-
feeting possibly, the next, is in re
gard to the use of the Hawaiian lan
Kiiage. It is known that strenuous
efforts will be made to do away with
.translation and interpretation from
English into Hawaiian in the next
session ; successful or not, the at
tempt will be made.
, . There are a few imi)ortant mens-
ures still in tho hands of the Gover
nor, or which have not yet gone to
the Governor. Concerning them it
is too early to speak. Of these, of
course, the most important is the
appropriation bill; next, perhaps,
conies the general election bill.
An observation of the proceedings
of the House during the fifty-six
days gone by, will show that Kauai
has had a wonderful influence in
most affairs of the House. Kauai's
initiative of this delegation has been
made more powerful by the splendid
support and reciprocal initiative of
the Oahu members. Holtsoin, as
Speaker, and Alfonso ajid Furtaelo
on the floor, have been tho big' men
from the Rig Island.
Hereafter appear comparative sta
tistics in regard to tho introduction
Counting today, there are four
more days of this session to be heard
from, hut yesterday was the last day
when bills could be introduced with'
any prospect of passage. In the
fifty-six days of this session which
have passed, there have been, ap
proximately, 230 bills introduced in
the House and 149 introduced in the
Senate. The Governor has signed
112 bills and four resolutions. There
are so far 112 new laws. In his
hands today there are, about twenty
one bills, of which thirteen are
House bills and eight are Senate
bills, awaiting his veto or signature
The end of the session will show
that about one-third of the bills in
troduced become law.
