FRIDAY, MAY 19, 1882.
Wo took occasion Inst week to say
a few wonts about crude legislation
in Hits country, nml further reflec
tion deepens the conviction that the
subject is one of no little importance.
The average legislator, no matter
how well educated he may bo in
other respects, if without any legal
training is poorly qualified for the
I work of properly drafting laws. It
is one thing to know just what sort
of a law is wanted, and qulto an
other to bo able to put it into such
shupo and to use such phraseology
as to be suro of accomplishing the
end desired. Theru has been more
than one instanco in tho history of
law making in Hawaii nei, when tho
Blip-shod manner of passing enact
ments has necessitated the subse
quent interference of tho Supremo
Court. A notable instance of this
kind a few years tince, was that
during one whole biennial period wo
had no divorce law whatever, owing
to unintentional blunders of callow
law-makers, and, it may bo added,
the lack of some official whoso duty,
it was to watch the progress of legis
lation. As it is, tho only jules on
the subject of framing statutes ore
those contained tn Articles 76 and
77 of tho Constitution, tho former
prescribing the words to be used in
the enacting clause, and tho latter
providing that every .law shall cm'
brace but one object, and that shall
be expressed in its title.
What is needed, in order to en
suro against slip-shod legislation, is
a provision of law that all bills shall
be submitted for revision to the
Attorney-General, before final pas
