to act have an opportunity to clear
themselves without danger of creating
u second edition of Kentucky embrog
llo. The Bulletin today gives a complete
leport of tho meeting of tho Council
of State for tho consideration of the
extension of sowers In Honolulu. Thoro
was practically no opposition to this
measure, although tho usual lack of
preliminary explanation by tho Execu
tive Council occasioned considerable
siiarp questioning on points of vital
Importance, to tho members assuming
responsibility for tho additional ex
penditures. It Is safe to assunio that
tho President will not only sanction
appropriations already made, but will
also give authority to tho Council to
appropriate for tho emergencies aris
ing from shortago In tho departments.
President Wood's remarks anent the

In view of Mr. Dole's failures to ob
tain positive Information from Wash
ington, members of tho Hawaiian
Legislature are placed In a curious if
not uncomfortable position. Under
the terms of tho President's election
order members of tho Leglslnturo con
tinue in ofllco nt tho plcasuro of tho
President. No Instruction to the con
trary having been received It Is gener
ally accepted that tho men elected to
tho Legislature of 18US aro still full
fledged nnd duly authorized legisla
tors subject to Picsldent McKlnley's
orders nnd tho constitution of the Re
public. Under the constitution of tho Re
public these men nre obliged to meet
on the third Wednesday In Februnry,
1900 tomorrow. Mr. Dole states that
ho cannot prevent the Legislature from
meeting and Minister Damon has re
fused to authorize necessary additional
expenses In the various departments
after tho last day of this month. Tho
local government also refuses to call
upon the Council of State to make ap
propriations for other purposes than
tho emergencies resultant of the bu
bonic plague. Thus a very completo
blockade has been created and the
Legislature is up a tree. As usual the
Executive Council has kept very quiet
as to Mr. Dolo's correspondence with
Washington and until tho facte wcro
bi ought out yesterday by direct ques
tioning members of tho Legislature
have been very much In tho dark.
It Is possible for tho Speaker of tho
House and President of tho Senato to
call the Legislature In scbslon tomor
row, nnd adjourn from day to day
until positive Instructions have been
received from Washington. This fic
tion would force tho Issue nnd un
questionably obtain tho decision do
Blied. If such action Is token, mem
bers of tho Leglslnturo will have to
trust to luck for their salaries, and
wait patiently for information as to
tnelr authority to mnko appropriations.
Tho obvious mnndnto of tho Presi
dent's election order was to. forestall
n legislative session In Hawaii while
tho territorial bill Is under considera
tion. With appropriations running
j short nnd tho Minister of Financo op
posed to tho contlnuanco of emergency
pi o vision for tho departments some
thing must bo done. Wo bcliovo Min
ister Damon Is mnklng a mistake In
foiclng tho Issuo nlong tho lines of
greatest resistance. His decision no
cessarlly forces members of tho Leg
islature to tako somo action and as
sumo tho responsibility of attempt
ing to force tho hand of tho President.
