The Council of Stato met at 2 p. m.
yesterday, thero being present: Presi
dent S. B. Dolo, Minister E. A. Mott
Smith, Alex. Young, Samuel M. Damon
and II. E. Cooper; Councillors C. Bol
to, secretary, John Enn, W. C. Achl, M.
P. Robinson, S. K. Ka-nc, M. A. Gon
salves, J. A. Kennedy and P. C. Jones.
After the npproval of the minutes of
tho previous meeting, the President an
nounced his appointment of Col. W. F.
Allen as a member of tho Council In
placo of John rhllllps, deceased. Also,
tnat President McKiulcy had approved
Act No. .1 of tho Council. Moreover,
that nn amendment had been placed In
tho Hawaiian territorial bill by tho
Senate, providing for financial legisla
tion by the Council of State.
Attorney General Cooper prcsentrd
a recommendation for tho pardon of a
young man serving sentence in Oahu
prison for malicious mischief in los
ing a sloop belonging to Mr. Dower at
sen. On motion of Mr. Enn, seconded
by Mr. Achl, tho pardon was confirmed.
The Budget Speech.
Minister Damon Introduced tho ap
propriation bills for considering which
tho meeting was called. Ho mndo re
marks In substance as follows: In pre
senting theso three bills for current
expenditures, pay rolls nnd salaried,
and expenditures under tho loan fund,
tho question presenting Itself Is under
what authority can theso proposed ex
penditures be allowed. For tho past
thrco months tho matter of expendi
tures for the post ofllcc, custom house
nnd Board of Health has been such a
pressing ono that it is scarcely neces
sary for mo to occupy your tlmo with
explanations thereupon. If tho Legis
lature wero now Bitting, nt its proper
season, It would glvo theso matters
full consideration. With tho Immense
growth of tho country's business, tho
exports having greatly Increased and
tho Imports more than doubled, there
has been a corresponding enhancement
of the financial resources, tho Internal
revenue for Instance having grown to
more than a million dollars. Tho Exe
cutive, In nccordnnco with Its powers
nnd responsibilities, decided that It
should tako action, under tho existing
circumstances, In having theso nppro
printlons submitted to tho Council of
otato and, subsequently, for tho ap
proval of President McKInlcy. Tho
nmounta of tho different bills nro:
Current expenses $1,020,353 -11
Salaries and pay rolls.... 314.7G7 82
Loan fund account 831,500 00
Authority for Action.
Tho Minister of Finance hero read
tho telegram of Secretary Hay convey
ing President McKlnley's sanction of
emergency legislation by tho Council,
also tho following provision of tho an
nexation resolution to show tho au
thority of President McKlnley: "Un
til Congress shall provide for tho gov
ernment of such Islands nil tho civil,
Judicial and military powers exercised
by tho orflccrs of tho existing govern
ment In snld Islands shnll bo vested In
such person or persons nnd shnll bo
exorcised In such manner ns tho Pres
ident of tho United States shall direct,
and tho President shnll hnvo power to
removo snid ofllcers and fill tho vacan
cies so occasioned."
To go ono step further, tho Minister
of Flnnnto said, the Senate of tho pres
ent Congress has placed an nmendment
In tho bill to provide for a government
of tho Territory of Hawaii, directing
that, "until n session of tho Legisla
ture of Hawaii shall bo held, tho Presi
dent may, in his discretion, nuthorizo
and direct tho uso of such money In tho
treasury of tho Republic of Hawaii as
well ns of tho Territory of Hawaii, as
ho shall think requisite nnd proper for
carrying on tho government of tho
Hawaiian Islnnds, tho preservation of
tho public health, tho completion of
tho sowerngo system of the city of Ho
nolulu nnd such other expenditures ns
In tho President's Judgment shall seem
to bo appropriate."
In considering theso expenditures
wo havo eliminated all thoso items
which wo deemed unavailable for Im
mediate uso. Tho Items allowed nro
for carrying on tho necessary work of
tho government for tho coming period.
In addition wo havo supplemented
many of tho Items in tho old appro
priations with Increased nmounts for
burcausthntrcquiromoro money on ac
count of tho growth of tho country's
business. Tho provisions of tho exist
ing loan acts oxplro on March 31, so
Hint a now bill for loan fund oxpendl

Dies Ihe Provision fjr Filling Temporary Yacan-
cles Apply to the Seat or a Justice
Who Has Resigned ?
Tho question has been mooted among
members of tho bar, as to whether tho
Supremo Court Is constitutionally
qualified to open in March term on
Monday. Chief Justlco Judd's resigna
tion wns ncccpted several months ago,
but tho Executive has mado no sign
in filling the vacancy.
Section 1, Article 83, Constitution,
requires that tho Supremo Court shall
consist of n Chief Justice nnd not less
than two Associate Justices. Tho Con
stitution authorizes tho filling of tem
porary vacancies such ns made by dis
qualification, sickness or absence.
This provision appears also in a sta
tute to correspond. But It Is nt least
doubtful, In the opinion of somo law
yers, If the law authorizes the tempor
ary filling of n scat made vacant al
together by resignation.
Another provision of law allows two
Justices to determine n matter If tho
parties to the caso mutually ngreo thus
to havo it. This may also bo cnllcd In
question ns to whether It wns intend
ed for such n situation ns tho pres
ent, whero nn absolute vacancy exists
in tho composition of tho Court.
Besides being St Patrick's Day, this
Is also Knmchamcha III, Day, more

tho fact that Mr. Cummins was ono

mnrtlnl in collection with tho Insurrec
tion of 1S93. That a full pardon wns
Inter granted him. In company with
