cf tho meeting ns being a response
to a resolution passed by tho
Hawnium Commission, soliciting
tho viowb of tho members of the

under tho now govorumout to be
prescribed by Congress.

a series of resolutions for coneid
eration. They are as follows:
Resolved: That tho Hawaiian

waiian Commission, tho following
1. That tho Supromo Court of
Hawaii bo tho court of last resort
of all matters within its jurisdic
tion. 2. That a Federal Court bo es
tablished with tho samo jurisdio
'lion as that exorcised by Federal
Courts in tho sovoral States, and
with appeal to tho Higher United
States Courts in aocordanca with
3. That tho presont sstom of
a purely appollato Supremo Court
with Circuit Judges for tho vari
ous circuits and District Magis
trates bo preserved.
1. That tho Judges of Courts
of record bo appointed by the
Governor of Hawaii by and with
tho ndvico and consent of the
majority of tho Senato of Hawaii.
5. That tbo torm of tho Jus
ticos of tho Supromo Court bo

After tho reading of tho resolu
tions there was a desultory con

of tho propositions and lasting for
several minutes. Then expres
sions bocomo moro defiinito as
well as positive.
Mr. Thurston did not want to
admit of appeals on purely local
questions being carried to Wash
ington. Also ho thought the ap
pollato court ought to bo distinct
from tho district or circuit courts
apposed from. Tho noaror they
could ndhero to tho presont sys
tem tho better it would bo. On a
constitutional question a mattor
could bo carried to Washington
i upon a writ of orror.
