years and $100 per annum for the
balance of the term of fifteen years.
This was lost and then the license

reading. The bill caused a long
debate, but was finally passed with
the park reservation cut to 77
acres. The vote was 8 to 7.
The governor's veto of House
Bill 7 giving Kau a term of the
circuit court was taken up at
Hewitt's request. Hewitt opposed
the veto, denying the governor's
assertion that the lauding was bad,
and claiming that there were plenty
of accommodations at Waiohinu for
the court. The veto was beaten by

der, ginger ate, milk, cream, small

beer, or other beverages or medi
cines, medical preparations, perfum

Hewitt moved, seconded by Dow

which carried unanimously on the
call of ayes and noes.
Discussion of the liquor bill on
third reading occupied the rest of
An amendment was made to ex
cept the sale of alcohol by druggists.
Bishop and Paris wanted the dis
tillery license fee increased from
$5.00 to $500. The original bill
provided for $1,000, which the
House changed to $5, and Dickey
wanted to tax the product $1 a gal
lon. Dowsett maintained that a
distillery could not be started with
out an expenditure of several thou
sand dollars, and offered u com
promise by cutting down the limit
for distilling from fifteen years to
five with a license fee of $5. An
amendment fixing a tax of 10 cents

and Wilcox voting in the negetativc.
THURSDAY, Al'KII. 1 3.
House Bill 176, the bill changing
the form and manner of examining
leper suspects, was on Lane's mo
tion taken up out of order for third

I FRIDAY, Al'KII. 14.
It had been generally understood
that the Senate would postpone
action on the Governor's veto of
the County Act, but the adminis
tration leaders in the upper house
could not control the situation.
Bishop moved to defer action, but
Achi moved the immediate passage
of the bill over the Governor's
veto. This aroused a general de
bate, nearly all of the members ex
Dickey believed the act as passed
was just so much waste paper, but
declared the legislature was
pledged to the passage of a county
act, and hence he would vote for
the bill. The Governor had the
last voice, and would veto any bill
that gave the assessors the power
to collect taxes. "To be consis
tent," said Dickey, "the Governor
must veto any act in line with this. ' '
Bishop said he was pledged to
his constituents to vote for a county
act, but he believed county govern
ment meant turning over the con
trol of public affairs and revenues
to an utterly untried force.
Achi said the law did not satisfy
him, but after the passage of this
act, he would work for laws that
would make the county law opera
tive and in accord with the gover
Dowsett believed the County Act
could be amended to meet the
wishes of the Governor, and in sup
porting the Governor's stand, he
had no apologies to make to his
McCandlcss did not favor county
government personally. In his
view, it was not best for this
country. But he had given his
pledge for it and he would vote for
it if there was not a cent to carry it
President Isenberg took the floor
and said he had intended to oppose
the bill, but since coming here he
had heard Senator Dowsett pledge
himself to attempt to postpone the
inauguration of county government
until January 1. On that pledge
he would vote to override the veto.
The vote then came on the pas
sage of the bill over the veto, and
it was passed, 11 to 3, the vote be
