counties themselves would be with
out the grcutcr portion of their con
templated means of subsistence
and the entire act would necessa
rily fall. If the part relating to
i Territorial taxation could be separ
ated from the part relating to coun-
'ty taxation, then, if the rest of' the
Act could stand, it would be only
I on the theory that, as to Territorial
taxation, previously existing laws
I would remain in force. There
would then be two systems of tax
ation, each complete in itself, with
two sets of officers and other ma
chinery from top to bottom, with
double expense, two returns, assess
ments, etc., to be made in the case
of each taxpayer, the possibility of
two valuations by different asses
sors or boards and two appeals, etc.,
in each instance, etc., etc. The
Territory would also have to col
li'Ct most of the taxes as fixed by
previous laws, sufficient perhaps to
support the entire government as it
was previously, notwithstanding
that the greater part of the expense
was to be hereafter borne by the
counties. The counties would also
have to collect the rate which this
Act purports to authorize. The
people would then be taxed much
more heavily than was contem
plated or is nccessrry. In view of
the extent to which the intention of
the Legislature would be frustrated
and inconvenience and hardship
would result in case the rest of the
Act were allowed to stand without
the part relating to new features
in Territorial taxation, it cannot be
supposed that the Legislature would
have passed the rest of the Act in
its present shape. For the court
to sustain the rest of the Act un
der the circumstances would be to
assume legislative power.
We fully realize that, as we have
held in the past, the organic pro
vision relating to titles of law
should be liberally construed, and
the court should sustain an act of
the Legislature, if possible. Eut
the superior law must control in a
clear case of conflict. The court
cannot, nor can a large majority
any more than a small majority of
the Legislature, over ride the or
ganic law, however, much any par
ticular law may be desired
In our opinion the act in question
is void, the respondents are not en
titled to the offices which they
claim, the decree appealed from is
reversed and an appropriate decree
in conformity with this opinion
may be entered in this court.

Honolulu, Jan. 14. Governor
Carter and Secretary Atkinson met
with Oalui members of the Senate
at two this afternoon to discuss what
shall be done to carry on the govern
ment under the new conditions
created by the county act decision.
Besides the governor and secretary,
Senators Crabbe, Isenberg, Achi
and Kalauokalani were present.
Senator Crabbe had with him a
resolution passed last night by the
Republican county committee, ask
ing the governor to request that
Congress ratify the county act. and
this is one of the means of procedure
that was discussed at the meeting.
An extra session of the legislature
and accepting the old appropriation
bills as still in effect were the other
At the conference it was decided
to cable to Prince Kuhio, the Dele
gate to Congress, asking him to
urge Congress to ratify the County
Act measure that is now before it.
j The various Republican committees
I will, it is understood, take similar
I action by cable.
I Governor Carter will continue to
carry on the government under his
general powers as executive, and
I no decision as to a permanent policy
I will be made until Attorney General
1 Andrews gives his opinion of the
'law. The matter has been sub-
tmittcd to him.

Glancing down n carefully com
piled list of fashionable weddings
celebrated during the last eighteen ,
mouths, it was found that the aver-1
age bridal age worked out at a 1
trifle over 20, which is also said to
bi the age of our newest Anglo-1
American Duchess. !
Ideas on the subject of the
marriageable age have changed
with changing years, and no one
will deny that the change is for the
It would be considered outrag
eous now for grils to marry at the
age when many of their grand
mothers took up the cares and res
ponsibilities which that step almost
Girls of 14 and 15 were then
looked upon as women grown.
Their granddaughters of today
at the same age arc little else than
children, scarcely half way through
With the next generation the
marriageable age moved a st.p or
two in the right direction; but even
then girls were classed as old maids
at a much earlier age than any one
would dream of so' considering
In contemporary fiction, the
blooming "sweet seventeen" (or
thereabouts) was the favorite he
roine, but today the ingenue, or
boarding school miss, is relegated
comparatively to the back-ground.
Something more than a fresh
complexion and bright eyes (charm
ing and highly desirable as these
undoubtedly are) is required of a
! girl. She must be, if not actually
interesting and cultured, at least
chatty and conversant with current
topics. She must have tact and
adaptability, so as to avoid ex
tremes of all kinds; of being either
too obviously delighted by passing
attentions from men, or, on the
othe hand, aggressively indepen
dent of the little courtesies which
any well-bred man will naturally
extend to a pleasant girl into whose
society circumstances may have
thrown him. Indeed, anywhere
between 20 and 30, a girl, is more
likely to be sought after than be
fore she is twenty years old.
One frequently hears thoughtful
girls remark that they prefer men
older than themselves to boys of
their own age. This is probably
because of the well known fact
girls develop earlier than boys. On
the other hand, the old cast iron
rule (cited by Shakespeare in the
familiar quotation, "Let still the
woman take an older than herself")
does not obtain to anything like
the same extent as formerly.
Much discrepancy in age (despite
happy exceptions) is generally
rather to ba deprecated but just as
much so where the man is the elder,
unless he happens to be of a young
and intensely sympathetic disposi
tion. Old maids or bachelor girls,
as we much more descriptively
term them nowadays, make much
belter wives than old bachelors do
husbands. The latter are likely to
be so crusted over with solitary
self-sufficing habits as to make a
perilous probability of their being
more or less uncompanionable.
The average woman, being by
habit more unselfish, can adapt her
self more easily to sympathize with
other tastes and proclivities.

the life of the child. The exten

has shown that it robs that disease
