Senate Bill No. 15, to provide
for tho recodification and revision
of tho Civil Code or Compiled
Laws of tho Republic, was then
taken up on its second reading.
Tho bill provides that a Commis
sion of three persons learned in
tho law shall be appointed by the
President, as soon as may bo after
tho passugo of this Act, to roviso
and recodify tho Civil Code or
Compiled Laws oflho Republic

vision and for translating and

Tho bill was read by title and

HOUSE OF ItEI'JtE&ENTATIVES.
Tho Registration Act was taken
up for third reading. It was do
cided to read it section by soction,
alternately in English and Ha
waiian. Hop. Winston called attention
to tho provision that exempted
tourists from registration for only
three months. Ho thought it was
six months in u formor bill.
Rep. Ilycroft said tho commit
too had changed it, thinking three
months was loug enough.
Ministor Cooper thought it n
sorious matter. Ho had not
noticed it boforo.
Hop. Winston moved to amend
to six months.
Minister Smith opposed tho
amondmont. Fow tourists stayed
more than three months. Mont
remained only about a mouth. If
anything ho thought three months
was too long. To extend tho timo
moro would givo a cortain class,
wlioso rosidouco hero it was do
sirablo to restrict, a clnuico to

HONOLULU, H. I., FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 1896.
Ministor Smith Well, that
might bo proper, but after a good
deal of consideration tho commit
tee had fixed it this way. There
woro very fow tourists coming
horo anyway. After further re
marks tho Attorney Qcuoral moved
to amend to two months.
Hop. Winston proposed that if
1 tho Attornoy-Qonoral withdraw
his amondmont ho would do like
wise with his.
Ministor Smith No; I intend
ed to move this unyway.
. Hep. Bycroft moved that tho
provision pass as in the bill.
Hep. Winston withdraw Iiib
Minister Ditmou spoko of tho
obnoxious nature of tho moasuro
as a restriction to freedom. Ho
wanted to have tho conditions of
lifo and travel in these islands as
free iw tho sun and air.
Minister Cooper stntod that ho
did not think tho present condi
tions of tho country required such
a law, but if it was bound to bo
passed ho would liko to havo it
made as littlo objectionable as
possible. Ho would movo to have
the limit six months.
Minister Smith reminded tho
Houso that tho bill was tho pro
duction of a commission of tho
special session of 1895. This
would explain tho difference ot
opinion amongst membors of the
Executive. Ho argued for tlio
necessity of tho bill, and against
tho idea of its creating a hardship.
Had ho been asked to register
when ho arrived at New Zealand
ho would not havo thought it
hard. Mr. Marsdon had told him
that registering did not annoy
him in the slightest when ho was
abroad. In tho words of Presi
dent Clovolnnd, it was a condition
nnd not a theory that confronted
Minister Damon said that his
colleague had not touched tho
principle at stake. This moasuro
was obnoxious in its restriction
of personal liberty. It placed
manacles on n man. Registration
in monarchical countries was tho
first step towurd conscription.
The Government know just whoro
to lay its hands on a man wlion it
wanted him for military sorvico.
Thip was a going buck to mo
narchical practices. A republic
ought to provido perfect freedom
for its citizens.
Ministor Smith asked how it
was that tho United States passed
a much moro rigid registration
law than tho ono horo proposed.
Ministor Damon could not bo
lievo that tho Attorney Guuornl
had interrupted him, as tho
Scotch say, for tho purposo of
heckling him. His auswor to tho
question was that tho registra
tion law ot tho United States was
designed solely to got rid of tho
Chinese. A similar law hero
could havo no such offect, for tho
Chineso now hero woro required
in tho country's industries. This
proprosition was an appond
ogo to tho contract labor law,
which ho hoped ono day to seo
wiped off tho statute books.
Hop.Hycroftcould not seo where
the grant restriction of liberty camo
in. Alrendy thoro were strict con
ditions upon peoplo landing hero.
A man was of ton required to pro
duco his tax reeoipt. Ho could
carry his passport about with him
as woll as his purso. Tho speaker
supported tho bill becauso ho bo
lioved it would bring him moro
freedom in tho course of a fow
years than ho now possessed. If
California had such a law some
years ago, tho Chineso would not
today control tho bulk of tho man
ufacturing business of that Stato.
Hop. Ilanuna supported tho bill,
beenuso it had been talked of a
long timo, also becauso ho knew
of peoplo lauding on Maui who
shouldn't, and it was noticed that
opium was lauded about the sauitt
Hop. Richards thought all ox
copting Mr. Hy croft were agreed
that this was a moasuro that
struck at Anglo-Saxon and Ha
waiian liborty. Yot thoro woro
rouHoiiH uxistiug that inado hoido
Kiioli roHtiiciioiiR u nocoBHity.

the pmiiunlnr point nt Ihhiio

ns long as ho pleased. Ho would
moe tli..t the bill bo amended in
that way, lo havo every man from
abroad registered on his arrival.
It was a mistake to think that tlio
peoplo of tho United States woro
going to bo down upon us for this
law. They know how it was them
selves and nnyono who lived in
tho Western States would under
stand our action.
Hep. Hycroft thought he knew
as well us tho member from lliln
hoy the bill would affect him. Yet
ho would not fool hurt when lo
know that tho slight iuconvenienco
was for tho good of tho country.
The purposo of tho bill was to
keep the country from boing run
away with by tho Asiatics - it was
just ns woll to say tho wholo truth.
Minister Damon apologized for
speaking so often, but tho discus
sion on this point would settle
tho wholo bill, ns it had become
ono as to tho policy. Citing the
provision that any judicial or
polico ollicor could demand a
man's passport, ho said it open
ed tho door to conspiracies against
liborty. It had boon declared to
bo a measuro ngninst tho Chinese.
That nationality had been of great
service in developing tho resources
of this country. We lind got along
vory well with them iu tho past,
and it was not good policy to an
U.gouize thorn at this juncture.
Ho could seo no necessity for
such a meaMiro now any moro
Minister Smith deemed it pro
per that tho principle of tho bill
should now bo exhaustively dis
cussed. Tho Ministor of Finance
had objected to discrimination
ngninst tho Chineso. Undor tho
ohl constitution thero wns nn nr
ticlo tlmt prevented any class leg
islation. In latter years, however,
tho conditions had chaimed. and
in tho constitution of tho Ltopublic
a provision had been inserted to
provido for just such legislation
ns that now pi-oposed. Tliat pro
vision was pul in tho fundamental
law by Anglo-Saxons nnd Hilwni
ions becauso they believed thero
was need of it. Tho want of a
similar precaution in tho United
States led to porsonal outrages
committed upon Chineso on tho
Pacific Coast. It was not unjust
to havo restricted tho numbors of
Chineso nllowed to outer this
country. If ho wont to Jnpnn to
reside it would not bo nn outrago
ifjio was told that thoro woro cor
tain lines of business in which ho
could not ongago. Thoro wns no
thing in this bill to rostrict tho
liborty of nuy man in changing
his placoof residence. If Chinese
already in tho country woro pro
tected in porson and property,
thoro would bo no outrago in re
quiring thorn to submit to regula
tions that applied to ovorybody
elso. Tho Attorney-General con
cluded by nguin citing the exnm
plo of tho United States in at
length adopting laws to rostrict
Tho motion to nmond by requir
ing strangors torogistor on arrival

committco for amondmont in that
respect. This boing first put to
tlio Houso wns carried, and tho
bill was reforred to tho Judiciary
Committoo so fnr ns this pnrticu

The reading ot tho romaindor
of tho bill proceeded without fur
