STRIPS FERN Of .
Douthitt's Amendment To Municipal Act
Passes HouseMakes Mayor a Figure-headt-Supervisors
To 'Appoint Em
ployees, Mayor Heads of Departments
Doutliltt'a nmeudment of the Mil
nlcipnl Act was. passed by the Houio
this morning afttr a lengthy iIUcim-J
hIoii Inl which strong opposition to
tho measure developed, It was not
Ktrong onougbf however, to defeat
tho bill, the final voto standing IV
to 11. I
The Kcuornl offcot of the bill Is
greatly to limit tho authority of tho
Major und to strip htm of much of I
ins uuporianco as mo appointing
power of tho City nnd County Govern
incut. Under tho Act us now amend
ed by tlio House he retains his right
to appoint the heads ot departments,
but is not allowed to meddle with
tho minor offices nnd with the labor
ers of the road hud other depart
ments. Tho power to appoint cm
plojoa Is vested In the Hoard of Su
pervisors, thus creating u House di
vided In ItBelf. 3
It Is not extremely probablo that
tho repeal of tlio clause prohibiting
the Mayor from engaging In any
other lino of business during his
term of office Is for tho benellt of
Mayor Fern. It, In fact, provides :i
way for tho substitution at the end
ot Kern's present term of borne prom
Inent business man who under pies
cut conditions could not afford to
tnko the oltlcn but who, If allowed to
tarry on his privnto business, would
not object to being tho executive
head of tho City and County of Ho
t'Olulu. This clausa was apparently,
overlooked by tho opponents of the(
bill, or rather considered as the ono1
initiating feature of It, as they did i
not iinilei stand what its ultimate of
fqct Is liable to be.
Incidentally, Itlce worked it very
smooth game nnd secured tho enact
ment, so far as the House Is concern
ed, of a law he had almost denpalred
of putting through, He has n bill
now before tho Houso providing that
the care and maintenance of District
Courts, Jails, and hospltuls In Hono
lulu shall bo transferred from the
Torrltory to the County. Strong op
position to this measure had devel
oped and It appeared more than
doubtful If It would pass.
So a section to the same effect was
Incorporated in Douthitt's bill, and
on account of the' length ot the lat
ter it got by unobsorved. There nr
