KILAUEA NATIONAL PARK BILL
IT HAVE UPHILL CONTEST
OWING TO RETRENCHMENT POLICY
By J. A. DRECKONS.
(Special Correspondence of the Star.)
WASHINGTON, Juno 5 How Con
gress will look at the matter of cre
ating tho Hawaiian national pa,rk, as
memorialized by the last assembly,
Is largely n matter of conjecture At
this time. Delegate Kalanlanaole did
not reintroduce bis bill for this pur
pose any earlier In tho present ses
sion because, under the caucus rule
of ,the House It could not be consid
ered at this session. Under tho cau
cus rules of the present Democratic
House, only such legislation as Is spe
cifically mentioned is to be consid
ered, and the national park bill coula
not even be considered by the Com-,
mlttee ori Territories during the pres
- ent session.
The bill will bo in the hands of tho
committee on territories for action
as early as it desires upon the con
vening of Congress in December, but
what disposition will bo made of 't
cannot bo anticipated at this writing.
Carrying an appropriation and involv
ing an outlay from tho treasury, tho
measure must go on the union cal
endar after being reported by the
committee, and will be compelled to
take Its chances among several thou
sand other bills a large percentage
of which number always fail of final
Becauso the creation of a now park
means a further chargo upon tho
treasury, the disposition of the Ha
waiian matter is rendered all tho
more difficult of prophecy at this
time. Should the Democratic House
adhere to its present declared policy
of retrenchment alpng all lines, It la
doubtful if that body will even con
sider tho measuro In committee. Re
trenchment, from tho average Demo
cratic standpoint as thus far exem
plified by the present House, is such
a general term that nobody seoms
to know just how or where tho re
ductions and curtailments are to be
Delegate Kalanlanaole may bo do
ponded upon to keep the matter be
fore the House committee on Terri
tories, and do everything that can be
done to further the measure but not
until the widely-heralded Democratic
policy of "retrenchment" assumes a
more definite form and direction will
it be able to intelligently predict the
fate of tho park bill.
