man as well ai the lawyer that the
Chief Justice bases his opinion upon
the proceedings of tho Commission and
not upon the reading of the Organ!"
Ac-, and that he finds their Intention
from what they "thought' best" and not
from tho words of the written law.
Tho Intention of Congress In passing,
the Act cannot he ascertained by what
was "Judged best" by the Commission,
an Independent body entirely distinct
from Congress. Of this there can bo
no question, but It l elementary law
that cen If thcChlef Justice had hewn
a member of tho Congress which pass
ed our Orgnnlc Act, what lie "tliougnt
best" would not bo considered by a
rcurt In construing It but the court
would be guided by tho wiltten law.
What Is a great matter of surprise Is
thai the Chief Justice would prejudge
what may come before him for deci
sion, for his atllrnintlon of the Attor
ncy General's opinion will not deter
piopirty owners from lighting any re:
respective law that may be passed
which materially Increases their tax
ation If they think that the law Is un
constitutional or Invalid.
As the Chief Justice was the outlier
I of the opinion In one of the Reglstn
Mon cases, construing certain provis
ions r.t the Organic Act It would be In
tereMlng to Know whether his opinion
In that case as to the Intention of Con
gti's was based upon what the Coin
miction thought or Intended, r
was formed from discussions 'In tho
It Is certainly a illfllcult matter tor
the acrage lawyer to advise clients nr
to the meaning of the Organic Act
when he labors under the disadvantage

Jritlce of our Supreme Court, who does

upon such questions.

very doubtful opinion that the constitu
tion of the Republic of Hawaii Is no
longer In force here and that therefore
Hi provision In Art. 71 that "extent as
lureln provided no retrospective law
shell ever bo enacted" Is no longer of

Legislature Is at liberty to pass such
retrorpcctlve legislation 33 it sees nt
It Is not the purpose of the Hulletln
to Quarrel with the Attorney Uenerul,
although It can not sec whnt effect the
retention In forco of our late Constitu

certainly would be nothing moro than
sn Act of Congress, and Congress Inn
In our Organic Act retained a similar
provision In force.for It has not repealed
Chapter 2 of the Civil Laws, Section C

hae a retrospective operation."
As tho Attorney Genera! seemed to

his opinion confirming tho conclusions
of the Attorney General ns follows:
"When tho Hnwnllnn Commis

(aid he yesterday, "theio was some
doubt nt first as to tho advisability
of ktcplng the constitution In

to contlnuo it In forco and then
as we went along it was decided to
abrogate tho wholo constitution
and Insert such portions us we
had formerly thought of retaining
in force Into the Organic Act.
That is why Section 1 and C of tho
Organic Act seem to Indlcato nn In
dention to retain the constitution
In forco and explains the seeming
Inconsistency of these sedans with
"Ae to the matter of retrospec
tive legislation ,lt may be said that
In the constitution of the Republic
of Hawaii there was a, provision
forbidding any legislation of that
kind We had retained that sec
tion In the Organic Act but when
the Organic Act was being discuss
ed In tho Sennto committee it was
judged best to eliminate It. It was
beforo the commltee at the time
and I stated that such provisions
vere to Iks found In tho constitu
tions of several States, Lilt It was
stricken out nevertheless, In tho
House committee' this provision
was rctulned, but when It camo to
the final adoption of the Act the
provision was left out. So It Is my
opinion that there Is no doubt of
