The Eighth Legislature of Hawaii
convened on Wednesday morning for

F. Chillingworth, of Honolulu, was
named President of the Senate.
At the House caucus on last Mon

Following the precedent of Presi
dent Wilson, Governor Plnkham read
his message to the Legislature in per
son, both houseso assembling in the
House chamber on Wednesday morn
ing fcr ihis purpose.
Reports from the capital last receiv
ed, are that Senitor W. T. Robinson
had adopted the role of "insurgent"
though to what end is not quite clear
at present. The Star-Bulletin on this
subject had the following to say on
"Republican senators called into
caucus yesterday afternoon found an
"insurgent' 'in the camp and one who
up to a late hour todayhad declined
to join the majority in mapping out
their legislative program and deciding
upon the officers and employes of Jhe
"Senator W. T. Robinson of Maui
Is the solon who declined to attend
yesterday's caucus. His refusal and
the absence of others, among them
Chits. A. Rice of Kauai, resulted in
the caucus being postponed until noon
"Meanwhile the Republicanj 'of the
lower house met, got harmoniously to
work, selected officers, and employes
and talked over The bills to be lntro-
, duced on behalf of the party.
"Robinson gratified his friends by
Bending word to the caucus that he Is
not going to desert permanently or
anything like that and his action is
taken goodnaturedly all around, so
that no marring of old-fashioned Re
publican harmony la expected.
"Senator Robinron's refusal to lolo
the caucus Is said to be based Cn the
fact that he v ants support for a tax
atlon measure he intends to Introduce
and will not pledge his vote as a sen
ator for president and other offices
until assured that he will get support
for this measure. Just what the tax
bill Is has not been divulged, bo Its
chances are not known, but one sena
tor said yesterday that he thought the
bill was aimed at Island plantations
"Another reason for Robinson's atti
tude is said to be that he wants "Tim"
Lyons of Maul for assistant clerk, of
the senate. There are several candl
dates for this job and it was predicted
that Robinson's aloofness was not
likely to help his candidate very much
