Forty-Third Day Morning Session.
Seven 1 loupe bills, four Bennlu bills
nnd ono Senate Joint Resolution, on
tho order of tho day for third reading,
confronted tho House this morning
when the Speaker rapped for order,
lu addition to this tho clerk had 24
pages of minutes to read, which took
morn than half an hour. Altogether,
It was tho healcst morning, for real
work, of tho session thus far. When
the noon recess was takeu thero were
still sovural vicasurcs which had not
been reached nnd which will como up
for disposition this afternoon. Astdo
from tho "two-county" Mil, none of
Uio mensurcs tncklml this morning
wns pf-a naturu to provoke dcluto. Al
though sovcrnl of them were postponed
for various reasons. Tho bill to ill

to tho two counties of Mist nnd West
Hawaii was among those deferred. Ka
wewehl, tho father of tho bill, was at

It wns pointed out that among numer
ous other defocts was a clause In Sec
tion 24 that provided that tho ballot
boxen and polling places shall havo
tho right to voto at tho next general
election, oven ho concluded that per
Imps it might be as well to put tho
bill over long enough to remedy such
defects. So final consideration of tho
bill was deferred to next Monday.
