PROGRESS OF THE HAWAIIAN REFUND RILL
The refuud bill is making progress at Washington. Enemies to the
proposition develop, but there is much influential and pronounced
opinion favorable. Delegate Kalanlanaole writes to the Honolulu press
to this effect, as follows:
"Washington, D. C, Feb. 17. Vork on our revenue measutc was
promptly renewed by the delegation and myself at the beginning of this
week. On Monday forenoon, by appointment, in company with Colonel
Hepburn, I presented the delegation to Speaker Caution at his private
room. The Speaker gave us a very careful audience and asked num
erous questions bearing upon the validity of our claims. His remarks
and questions atso clearly reflected his personal knowledge of Hawaiian
conditions. We, of course, did not expect him to make any expression
in favor ol the bill, but his attitude seemed, in the main, friendly, and
he did not raise some of the radical objections to the proposition that wc
expected. Immediately afterwards I presented the delegation to Chair
man Tawney, in his committee room. The essentials of the bill had
already been gone over with Mr. Tawney, and he again expressed his
implied favor of the measure. Representative Bourke Cochran was seen
by a member of the delegation,. and he pledged his hearty support to the
measure. Thh same gentleman.5 however, when he presented another
letter of introduction to John. Sharps Williams, the minority leader, was
met with a sharp rebuff, and the statement that he did not care to even
listen to any reasons in favor of this bill, as his mind was already firmly
made up against it. We hove also been given to understand that Mr.
Lloyd will oppose the bill, and if'is possible that an effort will be made
by the Democratic leader to gather opposition to its passige.
"On Monday afte noon, I presented the delegation to Senators Per
kins, Warren, Flint and Beveridge, all of whom expressed themselves
as favoring my bill. ;
"On Tuesday, our appointment hearing was made before the Senate
Committee on Pucific Islands and Porto Rico, Senators Foraker, Flint,
Rayner, Pyles, Wetmore and Clappf being present. The main argument
was made by Mr. George Wf Smith, with brief additional statements by
others. Sentiment in this Senate Committee seemed to be in favor of
some friendly action, although soma of. the drift of their talk was toward
cutting down both the percentage -ati'd the term of years and applying
the entire amount granted to territorial works exclusively.
"On Tuesday evening the entire California delegation in the House
were our guests at a dinner &t the New Willard hotel. The two Call
fornia Senators were unable to be present because of previous engage
ments. Congressman McLachlan of the River and Harbors Committee
referred in very flattering terms to the work done by Hawaii before
their Committee the last session, and Congressmen Smith, Hays and
Kahn pointed out several precedents in Congressional action which were
more radical than that asked for jtyflie present bill. All the members
of the Hawaiian delegation feltlinfj&e affair was a very successful one.
"On Thursday, I presenjed theffciLfgation tq, Chairman Payne of the
Ways and Means Committee, who is the nominal leader of the Repub
licans in the House. Mr. Payne, while receiving us, very courteously
expressed his disapproval of our measure, taking the ground that Ha
waii contains ample wealth and natural resources to make it advisable
for her to get only the same treatment that is accorded the other states
"On every hand suggestions are met with that either the percentage
or term of years, or both, should be reduced. To this we have uniformly
said that if any reduction must be made, we ask that it be made in the
term of years and not in the percentage rate, although we shall make
strenuous efforts tb have the bill reported without change as to either
one. The fact that my bill calls for action differing from that extended
to any other territory has always caused wide comment in both the
House and the Senate. It is evident that while we shall have some
strong support, there will also be much opposition to the measure.
"If the Democratic leader attempts to gather the opposition against
us, we shall try to have it made a party issue by the Republicans. But
as Mr. Payne and some other Republican leaders do not favor the bill,
there are obvious difficulties in having this done. For the present, our
efforts are centered 011 securing a favorable report from the committee
while still carrying on our general effort to extend its number of friends
upon the floor."
