POWER OF COUNCIL OF STATE
Decided That Body Has Full Legislative Author-
Itj - Cabinet Ministers Charge Tbtlr M.tids
Position ot Councillors Carries.
There was a full meeting of tho
Council of Stato yesterday afternoon
saving for the absenco of Cecil Drown
from tho country, viz.: President S. 13,
Dole, Ministers E. A. Mott-Smlth, A.
Young, a. M. Damon nnd II. E. Cooper;
Paul n. Isenbcrg, W. C. Achl, John

Robinson, P. C. Jones, A. V. Dear, John
Nott, C. Holto nnu J. A. Kennedy.
After tho usual preliminaries n pe
tition wus presented by tho President
from n largo number of business
houses, with bills attached for mer
chandise and food supplies furnished
to tho quarantlno station, to tho order
of Superintendent J. D. McVeigh nnd
at tho Instance of J. K. Brown, U
Inspector of Cnmcso Iralmgratlon, for
the mnlntcnanco of immigrants dotoln-

turncd t0 tnclr own country. Tho to-
tal amount was over $3,000 and tho
petitioners wanted to havo payment o.

Question ot Authority.
Mr. Jones raised tho question as to
whether tho Council had any authority
for acting on theso bills.
President Dolo remarked that, as
this meeting of Council was for emer
gency matters, tho question raised was
a proper one.
Mr. Achl moved to rcfor tno petition
to tho Judiciary Committee, ana Mr.
Ka-ne thought tho Finance was tho
Minister Cooper gavo the history of
tho bills, contending they should bo
paid by tho United Stntcs.
Mr. Jones moved an amendment, thnt
tho petition 00 referred to the Execu
tive. Mr. Robertson considered that an
analysis of the question resolVed It
self into tho point as to whether tho
Council of Stato had tho

Mr. Gear agreed that the powers of
tho Council of Stato had been enlarg
ed by the authority under which it
was now acting. According to the Ha
waiian constitution they . certainly
could not mako any appropriations ex
cepting thoso rendered necessary by
any public calamity or grave emer
gency, uut President McKlaioy, under
I tho' supremo authority

MlnUtcr Cooper contended that tho
Washington telegram giving the Coun
cil authority to make necessary appro
priations did not enliiigi its poweiu
beyond tho constitutional provlalnns
calling tho Council of Svito Into being.
Tho telegram must bo Interpreted ac
cording to tho constitution. Tho Coun

He did not think It had the power to
Insert new Items. In answer tn a
question by Mr. Gear, tno Attorney
General added that ne did uol think tho
Council of Stato had tho right to In

Mr. Robertson asked how 11 came,
then, tha; the Council u few weeks (.go
raised a proposal appropi Iiitlon of
$10,000 to $25,000.
Minister Cooper did not know, was
not present. 1' j Mr. Achl he answered
that tho Council could not add Mils
that camo in lite to the Items.
Mr. lsenber Do you rae.in to ray

Mr. Cooper nniwr.ro.l In irfcet with
the views ho had provioutly drill ercd.
Any recommcndallous ot tin Council
would bo received courteously, nud
with all tho attent'nn ami weight 11
deserved, by tho Executive At the
same time ho did not think the Coun
cil had tho power to Introduce new
items without tho sanction of the
President Dolo differed somewhat
from the Attorney General. The case
cited of an increase mado by the Coun
cil ln a proposed Item recently was lu
point, nnd again two years a.?o when
tho Executive recommended a pardon
the Council chanced it to a reprieve.
Tho question of nowv.ra was raised un
that occasion, the conclusion being
that tho C6uncll could recommend but
not Introduce a proposition.
Mr. Robertson moved that it Is tho
sense of tho Council ot Slate that wo
havo the right to amend nny ot tho ap
propriation bills wo havo In band,
cither by increasing or decreasing, or
by striking out or ndring new Items.
Mr. Gear, supporting the motion,
held that tho committees could uol act
Intelligently or efficiently unless Iho
Council had tho full po.vci-s proposed.
Ho instanced the rajs of n bridge Item
In the Interior appropriations, which
tho commlttco recommended Miould
be cut ln half.
Mr. Kaulukou was lu fnvor of the
motion last moved, but claimed It wo 8
out of order.
President Dolo ruled tho last motion
out of order ns not necessarily related
to the main question.
Tho nmendment was voted down and
tho main morion arrled, referring tho
petition to tho Judiciary Committee.
Mr. Robertson then renewed his mo
tion. Tho President dealred to hear tho
question discussed, as it appeared
doubtful if the motion was ln order.
It was a constitutional question. Tho
Council was asked to enlarge I'.i own
powers. President McKlnley had tht
authority to alter the appropriations.,
