FREAR TELLS HOW HIS
BILL MAY BE HELD UP
"It may bo posslblo to get tho bill
thiough Congress, although tills Is a
i.liort tension," said Covernor l-'reur
this morning, when nsked If ho
thought It possible that his bill
amending tho Organic Act might pass
Congress In tlmu to enable tbo local
Legislature to net under Its provi
sions. "Tho committees both gnvo It un
usually early hearings, owing to tho
fitct that I was In Washington ut the
time," added tho (lovernor. "Thoy
kbowed gieat Interest In It, but who
tber it will go through dining this
Ksslou or not depends mainly, on tho
piople of Hawaii."
The Governor wng nsked to specify
In what manner tho local people
ii'lght Influence the matter, and If
bu had lenticular teferenco to tbo
Democrats, who so farMutd been tho
only ones to make active kicks to
"No; tho opposition from the Dem
ocrats was to be expected," he an
swered, "but If ono or two Uepubll
(iins woro to complain to Washing
ton, lepresentlng that the mujoilty
or tho ItcpubllcaiiB objected to tho
bill If they should He, and say r.o.
then the pcoplo 'at Washington
would pifbably wait with taking ac
tion until they could obtain more Information.
"Some peoplo arc opposed to tho
bill becuuso It docs not go far
enough, while others object on gon
dii! principles. I don't suppose that
tho bill suits everybody, or that any
two persons agree us to what should
be included nnd what should be ex
cluded, or as to the form of tbo bill.
I might read It through a hundred
times nnd llnd somo little thing t
change each time, hut tbo question
Is us to whether tho bill should bo
enacted. Some of the provisions
therein woro recommended by rctolu
tlons of tho Legislature, others In tho
party pl.it forms, nnd still others by
tho Advisory Land Commission."
