Tlicro was a full meeting ot tlio

After tho usual prcllmlnailcs 11 pe
tition was presented by tho President
from n large number of business
bouses, with bills attached for mer
chandise and food supplies furnished
to thu quarantine station, to the ordci
of Sunerintnmlnnt .1. II. MnVnlch nnil
at the Instance of J. K. Brown, U. S. '
Inspector of Cntnesc Immigration, for
tho maintenance of Immigrants detain
ed In quarantine nnd subsequently re
turned to their own country. Tho to
tal amount was over $3,000 nnd the
petltloncis wanted to have payment o.
the b..is authorized by the Council 01
Mr. Jones raised tho question as to
whether the Council Imd any authority
for acting on these bills.
President Dale remarked that, as
this meeting of Council was fur emer
gency matters, the question raised Was
a proper one.
Mr. Achl moved to refer tno petition
to the Judiciary Committee, anu Mr.
Ka-no thought tho Finance was tho
Minister Cooper gavo the history of
the bills, contending they should bo
paid by tho United States.
Mr. JoneB moved an amendment, that
the petition be referred to tho Execu
tive. Mr. Robertson considered that an
analysis of the question resolved It
self Into tho point as to whether the
Council of State bad tho power of
amending the appropriations submit-
tcd by tho Executive. Ho did not think
tho bills should go to tho Executive.
Mr. Gear agreed that tho powers of
the Council of Stnto had been enlarg
ed by tho authority under which it
was now ncting. According to tho Ha
waiian constitution they certainly
could not make any appropriations ex
cepting thoso rendered necessary by
any public calamity or grave emcr
gency. But President McKlaloy, under
tho supremo authority bestowed on
him by the annexation resolution, gave
tho Council tho authority !o make all
necessary appropriations for- carrying
on tho government. This implied the
prlvllego of inserting any items that
seemed necessary for tho current bien
Minister Cooper contended that tho
Washington telegram giving tho Coun
cil authority to make necessary appro
priations did not enlarge Its powers
beyond tho constitutional provlidnns
calling tho Council of State Into being.
Tho telegram must bo interpreted ac
cording to the constitution. Tho Coun
cil on its own motion could not meet.
He did not think it had tho power to
Insert new items. In answer to a
question by Mr. Gear, tho Attorney
General added that ho did not think the
Council of State had tho right to In
crease, or decreaso tho items In nny
Mr. Robertson asked how it came,
then, that the Council n tow wcoks (.go
raised a proposed appropriation of
$10,000 to $23,000.
Minister Cooper did not know, was
not present, l'j Mr. Achi he answered
tITat tho Council could not add bills
that camo in Lite to tho items.
Mr. Isenber? Do you mean to pay
wo cannot add to. or decreaso nny
amount In a bill? No? Then I move
this Council ot Slate adjeurn slno die.
Tho Attorney General essayed to
Bpeak, but Mr. Uer.ljer; raised i point
President Dob regarded this ss n
rash motion, una putting It forthwith
declared it lost.
Mr. Kennedy desired to know If the
Council were mestlng strictly upon the
provisions of the Hawaiian constitu
tion, or had tho instructions of Presi
dent McKlnlcy anything to do with
Mr. Cooper answered in Ifect with
tho views ho had previously dclhered.
Any recommendations ot tho Council
would bo received courteously, and
with all the attention and weight it
deserved, by tho Executive. At tho
same tlmo he did not think the Coun
cil had tho power to introduce now
items without tho sanction of the
President Dolo differed somewhat
from tho Attorney General. The case
cited ot nn Increase maiio by tho Coun
cil in a proposed item recently was in
point, and again two years ago when
tho Executive recommended a pardon
tho Council changed It to a reprieve.
Tho question of powers waa raised on
that occasion, tho conclusion being
that tho Council could recommend but
not introduce n proposition.
Mr. Robertson moved tlut It Is tho
senso of tho Council ot Stato that wo
have tho right to amend any ot tho ap
propriation bills wo have in hand,
either by increasing or decreasing, or
by striking out or adc'ing new items.
Mr. Gear, supporting tho motion,
held that tho committees could not net
Intelligently or efficiently unless tho
Council had tho full poivcrs proposed.
Ho instanced tho rasa of n brldgo item
In tho Interior appropriations, which
tho commltteo recommended fliould
bo cut in half.
Mr. Kaulukou was In fivor of the
motion last moved, but claimed it was
out ot order.
President Dolo ruled tho last motion
out ot order ns not necessarily related
to tho main question.
Tho amendment was voted dawn nnd
tho main motion -'arrled, roforrlng tho
petition to the Judiciary Commltteo.
Mr. Robertson then renewed his mo
tion. Tho President dc3lrcd to henr the
question discussed, as ic nppcared
doubtful it the mutlun was In order.
It was a constitution ll question. The
Council was asKul to enlarge l:n own
powers. President McKlnlcy had tun
uiltliurlty to niter the uppropriutluns.
Minister Cooper could uot see, u tno
Council had power of new ltoius, wny
they could uot vote money to pay till
tho Chinatown I Ire lim'iuh, nnil ti.o
l,.ccuUu Council wlt.i uj veto on tho
Council of State.
Mr. lscubcrg U3krd who then wus
responsible fur thu $l'i,UiiO expended
jvtr thu $10,000 oilg'iiully icquustod by
ho Board of Hv.iilli.
Mr. Ka-no wanted to dlscu33 tho
question to see tho end of It. Commit
ices were investigating items in all
iho departments, yet It was asked what
.mthoilty the Council had tn daal with
.hem. Ho thought the motion wus in
Mr. Gear held tho motion to be In
jrdor, and tho Council to have th
power It asserted
Being usked by inc
i'rcsldcnt how tho power wuh confer-
ted, by tho constitution or oy PreslJon.
McKlnlcy, tho spinker said ho did not
think tho Council had tho right t
mnko a largo part of thegj appiopilu
Hems, hut when tho Council was askcr
to mako these npproprlatioi.s it ougl.i
to have the power to alter me items
if they wcro given tho authority b)
tho President of tho United States ft
pass requisite, appropriations, they
certainly had tho power to mack such
changes in them as they uccmed wise.
Tho appropriations are mado for two
years, so that they bo npproved by
Minister Damon argued that the
power claimed in tho motion was con
ferred by tho telegram Ironi tho Sec
retary of State. Ho thought bo had
covered the ground in Introducing Iho
bills. Tho Executlvo Council needed
tho ndvico nnd cooperation of tho
Council of Stato to complete the au
thority under wnich tho Executive was
then acting. To secure tho very best
results they must have the advice of
tho Council of Stnto on all of tho items.
If they chose, to insert now ilenia hi
thought it wise for tho.Exccutlvo to
accept tho items without llscusslun.
No three or four men could irnko tho
appropriations perfect. President Mc
Klnlcy did embody authority in his in
structions for tho Couni.ll to lnssrt
new Items. It was not to tho Executive
Council but to tho Council ot State that
this authority was sent. The Execu
tlvo fixed tho nuthorlty of this Council
by asking It to como in bore.
Minister Cooper could not under
stand why tho Minister of Finance
took a different stand thcro from what
ho did in tho Executive Council.
Minister Damon answered that his
vlows were to bo found in iho records.
Minister Young Jocosely remarked
that the Minister ot Finance bad no
superior In thrashing down Items. Mr.
Damon bad told them In tho Execu
tive Council that thcro was oo much
money and they must cut their coat
according to their cloth. As to the
bridge mentioned by Mr. Gear, that
was a kind ot itom that could not be
cut. Whatever it would :ost to make
tho bridge reach across the stream and
givo it stability nnd endurance must
bo oxpended or they woull not have
tho bridge. lie had no objection to
'tho motion. So long as It was for the
good of the country; he was willing to
havo as many items put in tho bills as
tho Council of State pleased.
Minister Mott-Smlth told of tho dif
ferent view bo had taken of appropria
tions since tho receipt of tho telegram
from Washington. Before it arrived
ho had told tho Commissioners of Edu
cation that no new scltoolhouses could
bo provided for in emergency appro
priations. In such a case as that nt the
post ofllco tho matter was ono of ne
cessity. This telegram had consider
ably Increased tho powers ot tho Coun
cil of State. Ho considered now that
they bad a defectlvo bill inasmuch ns
it had been prepared before that tele
gram was received. The Council or
Stato now bad full power of legislat
ing appropriations. Tho words "at the
request of tho Executlvo Council"
formed simply tho basis ot action or
tho motive power. He considered that
they bad now tho power not- only to
enlarge or reduce items but to put in
new ones. Accordingly ho had prom
ised his Commissioners to bring in all
tho new schoolhouses bo could.
Mr. Jones supported all tho claims
mado lu tho motion. Mr. Gears re:
mark nbout tbo bridge be thought very
appropriate. That matter of tho peti
tion was entirely new business, and
that wns why ho thought it might wait
over n little. Ho saw by tho Territor
ial bill that a general election was to
bo held on tho Tuesday following the
flrbt Tuesday in November of this year,
but tho Governor was given power to
call a special election bctoro that time.
Ho considered tho first duty of the
Governor would bo to call a special
election. I am suro if I get tbo Job
that's tbo first thing I shall do. You
needn't laugh, because I havo tho ne
cessary qualifications I am over 33
years of ago and n citizen of Hawaii.
Minister Damon said the more lie
read tho telegram tbo moro ho was con
vinced on tho point. "Requisite ex
penditure." Is it n rcqulslto expendi
ture? That was all ho should ask re
garding any proposed now Item.
Mr. Kaulokou spoke ot their bring
under tho thumb of tho Attorney Gen
eral. Mr. Robertson noticed that tho dis
cussion bad drifted entirely into iho
merits of his motion, instead of the
question of whether It wna in order
raised by tho President. IIo .lolel that
tno Council was left to bo thu Judge
ot Its own powers as to 'nterforenco
with tbo subject matter of .heso bills.
It must for itself Interpret tbo con
stitutional provisions referring to its
own oxlstencc. Tho way to scttl" It
wns to take a voto on thu question at
Issue. If tho question had been raised
In tho case ot tho pardon referred to,
n motion llko tho present ono would
havo been In ordor, as tho Council
would havo to Interpret Hh power for
Itself. There was no senso In tho ob
jection that tho Executive hero bad no
veto on tho Council's action. The I
President of the United State his tilt J
right of veto. If wo Insert nn item of
$2,U00,UU0 for paying duni'iges caused
In suppression of tho plnguu, 1' would
bo the duty of tho local ISxcctltho to
notify the President of tho United
States Hint tills was an Item it had not
recommended. 'J he Council .vould ua
handicapped In tho consideration nud
passage of these bills it it did uot have
the power to Increase or decrease uuy
Item, or lnscit any new Items It wo hco
It necessary. We must tnlte tho power
Into our own hands. Thu commltteo on
Judiciary will only support Itet-u that
wo deem necessary. '1 hat hhould be
the position taxen by all the other com
mittees. '1 hue nro a great many itcmi
that might bo desirable, or the pass
ago of which might mnko thing? mare
convenient, for the Government, yet
.f not absolutely ncccsbnry for the ear-
lying on of the departments they
ihould not bo passed.
President Dolo said he would allow
.ho motion. As Mr. Gear Mad p operly
observed, tho Council could not loglc
ato Itself new powcis, but It had th
Ight to interpret tho brief dUputcn
rom Washington. A body nppropi I li
ng public moneys would bo very much
inndlcnppcd It limited In the passing
Tho motion carried unanimously.
A petition wns presented by the
Picsldcnt from Henry Zcibo, taking for

Mr. Hoblnson similarly reported
from the Committed on Education and
Foreign Affairs, and tho report took
the samo course.
Minister Dnmun presented a request
from tho Hoard of Health for an ad
ditional appropriation of $230,000 for
suppression of bubonic plague. Hu

the Immcdlnto appropriation of $10,

Allen, that tho bill for S10.000 to pay

intimated by the President that till

authority ot this scsslou, ns it did not

Klnlcy becnuso It camo strictly under
tbo constitutional powers of the Coun
The bill passed.
Mr. Damon then moved reference to
a committee, hut Mr. Robertson object'
ed that It was new business.
President Dolo remarked that tho
matter of tho larger item, involved so
much that tho Minister of FInanco dc-
Blred n commltteo to Investigate it.
Mr. Jones did not sco how It could
bo done now. It should como from tho
President Dolo said it was not to
make tho appropriation but to glvo nd
vico that tho Council was nsked.
Mr. Jones said it would bo all right
If they had anything bctoro tho house.
Minister Damon plaintively remark
ed that his position wns all right until
Mr. Achl mado his motion to pass the
labor bill. Ho then withdrew tho $230,
000 proposition until It could bo pre
sented on requisition of tho Executive.
Tho Council adjourned until 3 p. m.
