failure and ended up with only four
senators elected John T. Drown nnd
Knohl fiom Hawaii, and Kalue and
White from Maul. The Senators from
Oahu and Kauai are nnwln n beautiful
state of uncertainty. It was well known
that Kalauokalanl and Crabbe hnd been
decided on by tho. Independents as the
two men from Oahu. Throughout tho
whole senloo Crabbo lias endeavored
to get the best results for tho people
out of both parties and ho has won
friend among the natives by his
stinlghtforward attitude. Never for
one mlnu'p did ho allow anyone to mis.

It was finally decided to take a recess
until 7:30 o'clock.
It was not until 8:1B that the Senate,

House of Representatives having Ae-
elded during the Interval that bad
elapsed that President Kalue was cor
lect In his ruling of the morning which
was to tho effect that 22 votes to 1 was
not enough to elect Mr. White. It. will
be remembered that this was over
ruled by tho House.
When the clerks had figured up their
totals on the reconsideration. It was
found that there" were 22 to 2 votes In
favor of Mr. White's election. Dr. Hits
sel nnd Mr, Kanuha voting no. Ilefore
the ehalr announced the result. Mr. Ma
lcalr.M aroso and proposed that Mr.
Baldwin's name be put up and voted
or. In cae ho should receive a lower
number of votes than Mr, White, the
latter thould be declared elected. This
was put In the form of a motion nnd
The chair had Just stood up to an
nounce the result of the voto and give
hi ruling on the matter when Dr. Hus
sel and Mrs Kanuha arose hurriedly
nnd walked out of the room. So gwlft
wns the movement and so quietly did
the Senators glide over tho floor, that

It was at this point tnat Mr. Emmo-

bo soon forgotten. In the meantime,
the Senate sergeant had disappeared'
and tho House sergeant was standing
leaning against the wall with a glower.

ished, Mr. Kalauokalanl started In on
the san tack. A half hour was con
sumer! in talking over what' should be
done and then the chair announced that
Mr. White had been elected as one'ot

Clerk Caypless then went nttfcr Dr.

far up on the slojrs of Punchbowl.
The doctor refused absolutely to return
to the Senate. Sergcant-at-arms Ka

too tried to persuade tho doctor but
the latter would not consent and the
officer was forced to return empty

tho Senate, no Senate, no Speaker of
the House and no House. The Governor-had
declared Tuesday the last day

. When the Joint session reconvened
at 11:40 o'clock, Mr. Kanuha aroso and
stated that he wished to give his opin

session. He had been denied this prlvl
lege both In tho morning and In the
