Hep. 1'alohnu moved the bill be con
sideicd section by section. The sec
ond section is very w rong. If his u ife
goes away and makes eontiacts will)
other people, why should he pay her
foolish bills. The Altoiney-General
seemed to be looking at the speaker
with some astonishment, but he does
not understand Hawaiian women as
well as the Interpreter, Minister of
Finance and other members. He
was not a mariicd man himself but
these leinarks weie for the benefit
of those who are married. And this
law, although it may not affect mem
beis of the housewill make much
trouble and co 'usion among com
Hep. Kaunamano thought tho pro
posed law was wiong. It makes the
wife boss, head of the house. In
this respect it is contrary to the law
of God. The husband, under this
law, would be second in his own
house, and would hao to take a
back seat. Thcmcscnt law is erv
definite and very well understood.
It gives the husband contiol of the
w ifc's nronci tv. The nronosed law-
gives the wife the power, if she
chooses, to make over her property,
if she sees lit, to the exclusion of
her own children. As we have a
good law on the subject, he thought
it was best to let well enough alone.
Hep. Tliuiston said he was certain
that if members understood the
teims and pui poses of the bill, they
would suppoit the it. The law as
it now stands, is the old common
law of England, by which a woman
on being married, was civilly dead,
and a law which was diseauled
every wheic except in the Hawaiian
Islands. The proposed law does
not set the wife over the husband.
It simply piovides that the husband
cannot sell his wife's property for
the discharge of his own debts, and
provides that if a married woman
carries on business on her own re
sponsibility, after complying with
the necessaiy regulations w ith regard
to advertising, her husband or her
husband's cieditois cannot appro
priate cithei the stock or proceeds
of the business, The bill is lor the
protection of the wife, and every
member of the house should suppoit
Rep. Nahinu agieed with the lion,
mcnibei for Ilamakua. He was op
posed to this law from beginning to
end. While the law may lelieve
married women of some disabilities,
it creates other and greater troubles.
He thought the law was contrary to
holy writ, which says, woman was
mado for man and not man for
woman, and this Jaw will revolu
tionize that principle. If tjijs law
goes into effect, it will break up
families. The lion, member for
Molpkai has cited the United States
laws', but he had been informed that
they do things dilferently there
marry for money and not 'for love.
This law is not equity. Why should
a woman claim all her own property
and at the samo time hold her hus
band responsible for her support.
It will enablo a woman to say to her
husband "what is yours is mine,
and what is mine is my own." lie
thought tho lion, member had an
eye to businc-i in favoring this law,
as it would be likely to multiply
di voice suits.
Hep. Kauhane spoke in favor of
tho bill. No law could bo mado to
suit all cases. The law provides
that if the husband makes unfoi
tunate investments, tho wife can
use her own pioperty for the sup
port of the family.
Rep. Kaulukou thought the oppo
sition to tho bill was owing to tho
members pot propeily undci stand
Tho motion to indefinitely post
pone tho bill was put and lost.
Tho motion to consider, section
by section, carried.
Section 1. The real and personal
property of a woman shall, upon
Jier marriage, lemaiu her bepnrato
property, free from tho management,
control, debts, and obligations of
her husbajcl; and a mairied woman
mny receive, receipt for, hold,
manage and dispose- of proporty,
real and personal, in the same man
ner as if she were sole. Passed.
Section 2. A married woman
may make contiacts,oral and written,
sealed and unsealed, in the same
manner as if she were sole, except
that she shall not be authorized
hcieby to make contracts with her
Hep. Kaunamano moved the in
definite postponement of the section.
Hep. Palohau moved to add to the
section, "if the husband fails to
piovide for his family."
Hep. Nahalc moved to substitute
"with the consent of her husband"
for the woids "in the same manner
as if she were sole."
Hep. Richardson was in favor of
passing the section as in the bill.
lie had passed through Ilama
kua one time in company with the
honorable member for that district.
The honorable member pointed out
a line piece of cane land which had
at one time belonged to a woman.
Her husband sold tho propeity, went
off to a foreign eountiy, and is now
married lo a white woman. Similar
cases had occurred in Honolulu.
He could not see anything in this
law to make the woman head of tho
family. It simply gives the woman
control of her own propeity.
Minister Daie was pleased to be
in aceoid with the honorable mem
ber foi Molokai. lie understood
that probably the bill was somewhat
in adance of the slate of society
in this kingdom, but he thought any
temporary inconvenienco that might
be caused by it would be more than
made good by the piovisions of the
bill. The intention of this bill is to
put the Hawaiian woman on Hie
same footing as her sisters in Ainci ica
and other countiies. It provides
that if one of the honorable members
should endow one of his daughleis
and she should many a spendthrift
it will be impossible for him to
squander her propeity. He believed
the bill was directly in the march of
civilisation and ought to be on the
statute book of Hawaii, and that the
members who arc to-day opposing it
will have cause to bless the day it
The motion for indefinite post
ponement w as put and lost.
The section passed as in the bill.
Section 3. All work and labor
performed, or services tendered by
a mariicd woman for or to a person
other than her husband and childicn
shall, unless there is an express
agreement on her pait to the con
tiary, be presumed to be performed
or rendeied on hei separate account.
Section -J. A married woman may
be an executrix, administiatriv.
guardian or trustee, and may bind
herself and the estate she lep'resents
without any act or assent on the
pait of her husband. Passed.
Rep. Kalua moved the remainder
of the bill pass, as all the objections
advanced were against the first sec
tions, and these being passed, re
maining sections moioly cairy out
the necessaiy details.
Bep. Dole moved an amendment
to section 7. Adopted.
The following sections, 5 to 12,
Section 5. A married woman may
sue and be sued in the same manner
as if she weie sole; but this section
