That was because the ale was milder
in its effects than the nail. The

The whole matter hinges on the

Noble Smith said that there was
a question as to the legality of pay
ing this money to Representatives
and ho would move to refer tho
resolution to the Judiciary Com

was no doubt in his mind but that
the Representatives were entitled to
this money. Probably such a ques
tion will never arise again. Those

unexpired biennial term and for the

Noble Hitchcock said that as he
interpreted the Constitution the Rep
resentatives are entitled to pay for
this session. Tho new Constitution
says that tho regular session of the
Legislature elected after the pro
mulgation shall bo in 1888., The
session of 1887 was not a special
session under the biennial period,
but was an cxtiaordinary session
called together by tho Government
for specillo purposes, and the "only
question is, were tho Representa

Rep. C. Brown read a majority
report from the Judiciary Commit
tee on the bill to abolish the office
of Governor, as follows:
To the Hon. W. R. Castle, Presi
dent of the Legislative Assembl',
1888, Sir: A majority of the Judi
ciary Committee to whom was re
ferred the bill to abolish the office
of Governor, beg leave to report
that they have had that bill under
advisement, and after careful and
due consideration of the subject,
have come to the conclusion that it
is not advisable to do away with the
office of Governor of the several
islands forming the group.
The principal objections made to
the office of Governor by the min
ority of the committee (and per
haps also by a majority of this
House) arc these: First, to the
personnel of tho present incumbents ;
second, tho usclcssncss of the office ;
and third, tho expense in maintain
ing the same.
In regard to the first objection,
the majority cannot but agree with
the minority that some of the
present incumbents have shown
themselves unfit in more ways than
one, for the position ; but is that a
sufficient reason for doing away with
tho office altogether? The majority
think not, as the cause can be reme
died. In regard to tho second objection
the majority maintain that the office
in the hands of good persons, and
those who would pay faithful atten
tion to the duties devolving on them,
will be useful and almost necessary
to the Government in the adminis
tration of affairs on the different
islands, and would insure on each
island among the numerous Govern
ment ofllcials a closer and stricter
attention to duty, if they know that
the Governor was likely to report on
or visit them at any time. And
this majority considering that the
office in the hands of right persons
will be of'cxcecding help and use
fulness to the authorities, have
drafted a now bill continuing the
office of Governor and defining the
duties, and which they herewith
submit to the consideration of the
As to tho third objection, that is
the expense, the majority think that
in the matter of assessment and col
lection of taxes alone, more money
will bo saved to tho Government by
the retention of the office, than will
bo expended in tho payment of the
salaries of the persons holding tho
office. Tho majority does not see
tho necessity of paying a clerk to
tho Governor, and this office could
bo done away with.
There are other places in which
economy can bo practised with bet
ter results to the country than in the
abolishing of the office of Governor.
Tilis is a monarchial form of Gov
ernment, and there should be some
olllccr on tho different islands to
represent the King and Government
other than a member of tho Police
Force, or some other subordinate
Tho bill introduced by tho major
ity of the committee provides that
tho office of Governor shall be
held by some male citizen, and pre
scribes tho duties which, with tho
duties already pertaining to tho
office, will, in tho opinion of tho
majority, keep tho incumbent fully
occupied. Tho bill abolishes tho law
as it at present exists, and if the bill
introduced by tho Attorney-General
disposes of tho office of Governor,
aud thus legislates out of office tho
persons now holding that office, the
bill introduced by the majority will
certainly have the samo effect, Tho
bill is so guarded Hut a repetition
of tho complaints made against cer
tain present incumbents can bo
easily remedied in tho hands of a
oompetcnt and faithful Ministry.
In the opinion of this majority it
will bo impossible for the Minister
of Finance or the Registrar of Pub
lic accounts to attend to or perform
tl)e duties of attending to or per-

foiming the assessment or collection
of taxes without tho Government
sustaining a loss equal to or greater
than the amount expended in the
payment of the salaries of Governors.
This majority arc also of tho
opinion that the abolishing of the
olllco of Governor, is not the wish
of the people en masse and should
the question bo loft to a voto of the
people, it is confidently believed,
that tho volo to retain the olllco
would be two to ono against its
abolishment. Tho question was not
raised at the recent elections, and
as to the olllco being useless, every
one is entitled to tho privilege of an
opinion' on that subject, and that,
too, without the motives or convic
tions of such opinion being im
pugned. The majority not favoring the bill
abolishing the office of Governor,
cannot report favorably upon the
bill providing for the manner in
which the duties at present appcr
lainlne to the office of Governor
shall be performed. Tlicy there
fore recommend that that bill be
laid on tho tabic as well as the bill
abolishing tho office of Governor,
and further recommend that the bill
submitted by them bo taken into
consideration by the House.
