THAT IIEGISTKATIOX ACT.
Secretary IrtcCurlliy oftlii Leglnliitnre
nflSOS TnlkH About It.
Charlos J. McCarthy was Sec
retary of tho Logislaturo bf 1892,
when tho Registration Act was
passed. Deeming somo of tho
statements published about tho
disappearance of tho document as
reflecting on hia official intogrity,
Mr. McCarthy desirod to mako a
statomont to a Bulletin reportor
and spoko ns follows:
"Tho Registration Act passed
tho Houso all right on its third
reading. It was handed to tho
Minister of tho Iulorior to bo pro
sonted to tho Quoon for hor aig
nature. In the meantime tho
"Wilcox Cabinet wont out. Aftor
their retirement, which was on tho
12th of January, 1893, tho now
Cabinot came in, on the aftornoon
of tho 13th, and presented several
Dins to mo iucon, wuicu suo
signed. Tho Logislaturo adjourn
ed on tho 14th.
"About a wook or two later Pre
sident Dolo sent mo a letter by
Horaco "Wright, asking mo to call
at tho Foreign Offico. I did so,
and Prosidont Dolo and Chief
Justice Judd woro present. Tho
President told mo that ho was in
formed by J. "W. Robertson,
chamborlain, that tho bill had
boon signed by tho Queen. It
had boon lost, howovor, and ho
(President Dolo) asked mo if I
could give him a copy of tho bill
as it had finally passed tho Houso.
I got a copy of tho bill with all
tho amondmouts and gavo it to
him, and it was brought up in tho
Provisional Legislature "What
was douo with it there I do not
"President Dolo returned me
tho copy of tho bill, as it was
amondod by tho Logislaturo of
1892. From tho Advertiser's
nrticlo this morning (Saturday),
thoro was only one person could
lose tho bill, and that was inyBolf ;
but I passed tho bill through tho
propor channel to tho Quoon, and
it was aftor hor signature tho bill
was lost. I wish to say this on
my own account, bocauso although
tho Advertiser's dates aro wrong,
there aro only certain persons who
could havo had anything to do
with tho bill.
"Paul Noumann introduced tho
bill it was Bill No. G3 prior to
his being Attornoy Gonoral. I
know, to my own personal knowl
edge, that it was oxpocted that tho
Queen would veto tho bill, becauso
tho native members woro opposed
to it, on tho idea that under it
ovory native would havo to wear
a tag. During that session mem
bers of nil political parties con
sulted with mo on nil measures
boforo tho Houso, and especially
on this particular measure, and
files of newspapers containing ac
counts of tho proceedings of tho
Logislaturo will confirm tho state
ment that tho natives as ft unit
woro opposed to tho passago of
tho Registration Aot."
