SENATORS ARGUE ON
Independents in Favor of an Interpreter-John
E. Bush Elect
ed Beckley's Fine
Senator Cecil Drown spoke for over
ten minutes on tho subject o( the use
of tho Hnnnllnn lanRiingc In the pro
ceedings of the Legislature. He said
there i plank In tho platform of
the Republican pirty which called for
work by that party along the lines of
Imlng the Organic Act changed so as
to Include Hawaiian, Hoepr, at the
present time, he could not seo ho tho
Legislature could go counter to tho
Act In such n barefaced way. Tho Ian
giiago was plain, Had Congress meant
to Include the Hawaiian language, tho
Act uould have said so. Whllo ho him
self was sorry to sco tho native lan
guage excluded, still he could not voto
for an Interpreter. Such an act would
ho to commit an official act against the
law of the country.
Senator White stntcd that In thrco
different places In tho Organic Act. pro
vision had been made for the nso of the
Hawaiian language In tho election of
members of the Legislature. Why then
when this election was over and tho
members had all been chosen, should
there bo any doubt expressed as to tho
Intention of the language of the Act?
Clearly tho word "proceedings" meant
the record kept of tho doings of tho
Legislature and all such things as bills,
resolutions, petitions and tho like.
Hero the speaker referred to the fact
that Senator Brown who hnd Just sat
down, had used the Hawaiian language
to translate his remarks shortly before
he had spoken on tho subject. Why did
he do this? It was simply to make his
meaning clearly understood. That was
tho only reason for tho uro of tho na
tive language. It would not bo put
down on record anywhere.
Senator Cnrtcr was another who
spoke against tho appointment of nn In
terpreter for the Senate. He stated
that ho felt a gnat Ic.il of sjmpathy
for tlioco H.iwnllan members who
cdiilil not use the English language but
that he could not conscientiously ole
for n measure when he saw that It was
directly In oppostlon to the fundamen
tal law of tho country. The speaker
then refeircd to tlio advantages that
would be gained by the use of tho one
language. In tho first place, tho pro
ceedings would take about half tho
time they would under the proposed
At this point, two communications
were lead. One from Adjutant (Jeneral
Soper, Inviting the President and mem
hers of tho Senate to the parade nnd
drill of tho First Regiment In front of
thn drill shed Krld.iy afternoon, was
ncccpted nlth thanks nnd the secretary
was Instructed to make reply.
This btiblncss haUng been disposed
of. Senator Achl made n motion to lay
tho matter of tho appointment of an In
terpreter on tho table. This at onco
met with strenuous opposition on the
part of tho Independents and then
Senator Tarls arose and spol.o on tho
subject. Ho said among other things
that he was very sorry tho Organlo
Act had not Included tho Hawaiian
languago but It was ery clear that It
did not nnd, therefore. It would bo a
great mistake to carry on any of tho
proceedings In that language. Every
thing dono by tho Legislature might bo
questioned. This was certainly a sorry
state of affairs but the languago of tho
Act could not possibly bo made to mean
anything else than that English cx-
chishcly should bo used. He was cer
tainly In sympathy with tho feelings
of the Hawaiian members In tho mat
ter and wished heartily that It might
bo otherwise, "but," said tho speaker.
wo mil not make tno Act nnd wo
should ho ory careful about doing any.
thing that Is liable to get us Into trou
ble In tho future." He wished to warn
tho Hnwnilnns that they were doing
something contrnty to tho Organic Act.
Senator Knnuha said ho wns well
nwaro of tho fact that the question was
a cly big one but ho had carefully con
sidered the matter and had found three
places In tho Act where tho uso of tho
Hawaiian languago wns allowed. It
wa3 further stated In tho Act that tho
Legislature was tho Judgo of tho mean
Ing and spirit of Its laws.
Senator Carter registered another
warning and then Senator Baldwin
took tho floor. Ho took tho ground
that the appointment of nn Interpreter
would mean an official act against the
fundamental law of the country. Ho
had always had n strong feeling to voto
for nn Interpreter In proUous sessions
of the Legislature but he did not even
suspect that tho question would bo
raised lu the Senate, so clearly stated
was tho Intention of thn Orgnnlc Act.
Ho submitted that, while, ho was sorry
for tho natho members, he certainly
felt that they wcro wrong In their In
terpt t tatlon of tho language of tho Act,
If tho Legislature continued to go
counter to tho Organic Act, It would
get a slap from Wnshlngton. If thero
was doubt In the minds of tho natives,
why would It not 'bo tho best thing
to await Instructions from Washing
ton. Continuing, tho speaker suggested
that every Senator bo his own Interpre
ter, All hut one of the white members
of the Senate could speak tho Hawaiian
language and all tho natlvo members
could speak, at fist a Uttlo English
In the meantime, everyone could com
bine In nn effort to have tho Organic
Act changed. He for one was certainly
for having an Interpreter but ho could
not see how he could voto for ono un
der the circumstances.
Senator Carter moved to tablo the"
In answer to the last remarks of Sen
ator Baldwin, Senator Whlto statod
that thero would undoubtedly como a
time when It would be necessary for tho
speaker to express something In tho
Hawaiian languago which It would bo
Impossible for him to do on account of
a limit to tho knowledge of the lan
guage. Would It not bo necessary to
have an Interpreter then?
This brought tho argument to n
close. The motion to lay on tho tablo
was lost by n voto of 8 to C. Tho
names of John E. Bush nnd F. J. Testa
wero placed In nomination. It was
thought thnt those who had spoken
ngolnst the appointment of nn Inter
preter would not ote. but when tho
tellers hai' finished their work. It wna
found thnt fourteen votes had been
cast and thai there were seen for each
candidate. As the President had voted
there was no chnnco for him to decldo
tho mntter so another voto was taken
and Mr. Bush was elected by a voto
of 8 to 7, n Senntor who had not voted,
throwing In his vote.
John Knhlolanl was elected Janitor
by n vote of 9 to f. his opponent for
cleaning up honors being Knilmakaolc.
V Maurice McMahon was nomlnnted
for tho position of stenographer. Thero
being no other candidate Mr. Mc
Mahon was elected by acclamation.
A resolution was offered by Senator
Cecil Brown to the effect thnt the sec'
retnry be Instructed to Inform tho
House of the organization of the Son
ate nnd Its readiness to transact bust
ness This was amended to the effect
that the names of tho officers of the
Scnnto be alto embodied In the com
munication to the House. This amend
ed resolution was adopted.
Senator Cecil Brown offered another
resolution to tho effect that. If adjourn
ment In the nfternoon bo taken without
the mention of any particular hour.
this bo construed to mean 10 o'clock
the next morning. This was adopted.
Senator Cecil Brown moved the ap
pointment of n committee on rules for
tho government of the Senate. This
carried and tho President appointed
Senntors Cecil Ilrown (chairman).
Kaluo and Wm. White.
At this point, Senator White offered
a resolution to the effect tb.it a ctln
mlttee from tho Senate wait on tho
Secretary of the Territory with refer
enro to securing n better place for tho
holding of the daily sessions. As
things were nt the present time, thero
was no prlvnrv about the hall In which
the Senate was lttlng. In case of nn
executive) session, nnjnne who wished
could hear what was going on. Then

ators Cecil Brown and W C. Achl
spoke ngnlnst the resolution and it was
