The Senate nan called to order flo
minutes early this 'morning. There
ycrejthrcc Senators absent" hut they;
appeared'on the scene a little later.
.The'followlng communication from tho
Houso wns received unsigned so It was
sent back to the clerk of the House Tor
his slgnnturo. When rend It was found
to announco tho following names of
.Representatives as constltulng tho
joint committee of the House on rules:
Makekau. Ilobertson, Haaheo, Mahoc
The Molokai resolution was taken
from the table. Tho President brought
up the matter of Imitations to others
than members of tho Legislature who
might care to lslt the settlement. Mr,
.Cecil Drown was of the opinion that
the Joint committed could confer with
the Hoard of Health and that tho tnrl
tatlons could be arranged In that way.
Mr. Dnldwln digested that, since the
Houso Intended to go to Molokai is a
committee of tho whole. It was no more
than right that tho Senate should also
go along as a committee of the whole,
the two bodies to form a Joint commit
tee. "" ?V .
On motion of Mr. Haldwln, the reso
lution Introduced yesterday by Mr.
White was unanimously amended to
thU efft. Mr. Cecil Brown asked-Jf
the resolution meant tbat every mem
ber of the,Scnate would havo to go
along. Upon being answered In the
negative. Mr. Drown stated that ha did
not caro to go.
Tho President nppolntcd tho follow
ing committee to confer with a like
Houso committee on the .matter of ar
rangements for tho trip to Molokai:
Baldwin, Kaohi and Kakapaahu.
Tho rules were again taken up for
consideration. Tho following motion.
defining tho duties of the committee on
food adulteration was Introduced by
Mr. Carter and passed:
"It shall bo tho duty of tho Com
mittee on Food Adulteration to
examine, the reports of tho food
commissioner, receive all com
plaints and potltlons regarding im
proper foods, cxamlno tho laws
regarding adulterated foods In this
Territory and compare the same
with similar laws in other com
munities; and In conference with
the food commissioner recommend
such legislation as they believe de
sirable and beenflclal for the pro
tection of tho people of this Terri
tory." Ono or two other small amendments
wero made and tntn again camo tho
stumbling block of yeitorday. The In
dependents Insisted on their amend
ment limiting tho time of speaking In
tho Senate to ten minutes. Mr. Cecil
Brown offered an amendment that the
tlmo be lengthened to thirty minutes
as In the House. Mr. Carter then of
fered another amendment that the
rtilo bo not changed unless by unani
mous vote of tho Senate. Under such
clrcumstnnces, he would bo perfectly
willing to submit to the ten-mlnuto gag!

both sides. He warned the members
that, In case there sVould be an at
tentat toi change the -time limit, he
would vote against it-Mr, Brown then
withdrew his amendment.
1 Mr. Paris asked Mr. White if he In
tended the translation of speeches to
bo Included In this ten minutes. Upon
being answered In the affirmative, Mr.
Paris stated that the members might
Just as well keep their seat finder such
circumstances. If the time Included
the translation, there would not bo
time to say anything.
Mr. Kantiha stated that he believed
the ten minutes as Introduced by Mr.
White t awi'tep. minutes for each
speaker wb'wIshrto say something
ou n subject) Tim tlm taken by an
Interpreter would not bo Included. Mr.
Cecil Brown said that this was foolish
ness, -'it would be Itrtpossiblo for any
Interpreter to hear a ten minute speech
and then translate properly. Mr. Brown
continued, saying he was born In the
country and was therefore ono of the
people of the soil, although blrf skin
was notithe same. He? did notjiellovo
that the 'natives wished tb Insert an
amendment that would prevent him
from speaking nndhe-dld-not believe
that. when they, sat down to think about
It,' they would'do anything of thoklnd'
.Mr. Baldwin warned the, members
that caro should be taken in the pass
ing of such a role.? It would, work nit
matter of trouble. If he judged Mr,
White correctly from previous cxperl
ences. ho 'was the very first who would
seek to break tho rule. Mr. White
thanked Mr. Baldwin for his remarks
and mado the statement that "It was
truo he had been afflicted with long
wtndcdness at one time but that he ha'd
received a dose of medicine and now
wished to limit his remarks to a short
Mr. Carter said he was ono who
wanted a dose of the same medicine.
Why "not Ihcn'sdopt his resolution by
which there would beno changing
again of the rule unless by unanimous
consent ' .
Mr. White said that tho amendment
which ho had Introduced was the prop
er medlclno and Mr. Carter answered
that this was a homeopathic doso
which he could not take, being an
Mr. Kalue objected to the amendment
Introduced by Mr, Carter as being con
trary to tho provisions of the Organic
Mr. Carter referred to the remark of
Mr. White about the intention of the
majority to show fairness. He askPd
why It waH then that the gentleman
Insisted on trying to pass the amend
ment. The fair thing to do was to
make no restrictions of tho kind. Hu
was perfectly willing to have the bit
in bis mouth If the reins were In the
hands of tho President.
Mr. Carter's amendment was lost
by a vote of a to -6, each side voting
solidly. Mr. White's amendment was
next .put and the same vote was re
corded on the ayes and noes being tak
en. At tho end of the calling of names
Mr. Cecil Brown turned to the press
table and said: "Oag law sustained."

Supreme Court Gives
A decision was handed down by
tho Supreme Court toaa,y In tho suit
of T. W. Rawlins vs. Maria K. Har
bottlo and William Haroottle, giving
the plaintiff possession of certain land
in Palama In which tho defendants
clnlmed a life estate with right of pos
session. The facts, undisputed, aro
that on November 30, 1895, the do
fondants conveyed to the plaintiff cer
tain lands In Palama and also certain
lands In Hamakua, Hawaii. On tho
samo day , as a part of the same
transaction, the plnlntjR exocutcd and
dolly erod to tho Harubitles an Instru
ment concerning tho-samq land. Up
on this Instrument thoHarbottlcs baso
their claims to Ufa estate and posses
sion. Tho Instrument contained three
clauses, by tho first of whlcu a life
cstnto In ono parcel of land was con
veyed, and b ytho second nnd third
of which one halt of the Income of
certain other pieces of land was se
cured to Iho Harbottles for life. A
succeeding clnuso read:
"And these pieces of land above de
scribed, and the rights and benefits
therefrom, Is what I now convey to
M. K. Hnrbottlo nnd W. Harbottlo,
her husband, for their lifetime, and
nt their death all these things shall
revert to mo and my heirs and this in
strument shall become null and void."

morely a habendum and dlu not con

In tho second clause. Also that tho
