ON ORGANIC ACT
(Continued from Page 6)
In lis present fuim tliu u. 1 ennuim
ten section. All of these except sec
tion .', which relates to the land Uws
were approved by both biauchus of tliu
last Legislature and tl.o changes In
thesu nro almost wholly of form. Tho
objects of theso sections utu us fol
lows: Gives No. Surveys.
Section 1 aineiris section 5 of tho
Organic Act, which extends to Ho
wall tho Constitution, mill tho laws of
he United States Kith certain excep
tions. This Is amended In two re
rpcts (1) The piovlsiou ns' to what
laws shall apply to Hawaii Is enlarged
mi as to Inclndo laws carrying general
appropriations, such as those for to
diugiuphlc, topographic and .soil sur
veys, sonio of Hhlch haro been held
by tho controller 1 of tliu treasury not
to apply to Hawaii. 2) Tho provision
that certain laws shall not npp.i to
Hawaii Is IIKowIso enlarged so as to
remove tho doubt which now exists as
to whether certain laws relating to
subjects covered by tho Otganlc Act

SetIon 2 emends section -0 by In
creasing the pay nt tho legislators

I no pay for nn extra session, that Is, a by him; und (4) by piovldlng that ft
session held Immediately after a reg
ul.ir session In consequence of fnlluto
to pas i tho necessary .ippropilatlons.
Tho piowslon against pay for extra
icssUms iiieiely conforms to provisions
which Congress has already nudo In
it appropriations for cxx!iucs for the
last two sessions of the Legislature.
This docs not nrftct the salaries for
special sessions, which remain at $200.
.-Section S amends section G2 merely
by omitting tho word "blenntall)" so
as to remote all doubt us to the valid

ting 11 proviso which has served Its
pm poso and Is no longer necessary.
Section I limends section S3 relating

ot counsel; (2) by authorizing the Leg- which nmends section 73 1 elating to
Islnturo to add other causes of ills-1 tho land laws. This Is the section of
qualification: (3) by omitting tho pro- greatest Importance and the ono which
vision dlsquallfjlnff a Judge to sit on has received most attention. Ao"t
a now ttlal in n caro previously tried one-fourth of tho section its It appears
in tho House resolution has been omit
ted. Tho lemainder has been rear
ranged, simplified mado moru definite,
and altered In several other respects.
The flrbt lour paragraphs lelate par
ticularly to homesteads. Tho lllth and
sixth paragraphs confer authority to
glvo piefcreuce rights to obtnln land
under special circumstances, Tho
roventh paragraph contains restric
tions on exchanges, leases nml sales
for other (linn homestead purposes.
The eighth or last paragraph 1 elates
to matters of general administration.
A 11101 D detailed description Is us fol
Tho first paragraph relates to re
strictions as to who may ncqulro
homesteads: (1) It prevents "repeat
ing." by prohibiting n person hereafter
from acquiring moro than ono homo
btoad hereafter sold by tho govern
ment; this rotates only to tho futuro
and does not affect tho past. Tho
amount of public land Is so small and
the number who desire land Is so argo
that It cecms only just that hereafter
each' person should liavo only ono
homestead out of the public and. This
does not prevent him from purchasing
other land from private persons; (2)
largely for the same reason, It seems
that a person who already has enough
land for a homestead, from whatever
soiirco ho may have obtained It, should
not ho allowed to ncqulro moro from
tho public land; and so It Is provided
that n person cannot hereafter acquire
a homestead fiom tho government
who, or whoso husband or wife or
both of them, ahnll then own other
land In tho Territory which with tho
land In question exceeds eighty ncres.
Tills docs not provent him from buying
other land from private parties, but It
keeps him, as far ns It goes, from get
ting other land from tliu Territory to
tliu exclusion of others who aro not al
ready provided for; (3) It prevents
aliens from obtaining homesteads from
thopublic land, by providing that nn
applicant must either bo a citizen or
havo declared his intention to become
such, and In tho hitter casa that ho
must havo completed his naturaliza
tion bctoro ho gets Ills patent.
I Tho second pnrngiuph relates to re
etructlons upon transfers after a per
son has obtained his homestead. This
Is to Insuret o somo extent tho land
being kept as a homestead and pie
vent It from being transferred to an
.alien or corporation or any largo hold
er. It prevents a homesteader from
transferring his homestead: (1) to any
alien or corporation at nny time.
whether beforo or nftcr lie has ob
tained his patent; (2) or to any per
son whatever beforo he has obtained
nls patent; (3J or even after he has
obtained his patent, to nny person
who already owns and which with tho
land In question exceeds eighty ncres.
An oxccptlon, however, Is mado In tho
caso of acquisitions by Inheritance or
trnnsfers betwoen tenants In common
In order to provent hardship pr lujtts
tlmo. Also, In order to permit grants,
or right of way and grants for various
other purposes that may ho neccssaiy
and that would not bo .Inconsistent
with homestoadlng, It Is provided that
transfers- may bo mado with tho con
sent of tho land commosslonor and
Tho third paragraph provides for
forfelturo upon failure to comply with
tho homestead agreement or the law
applicable thereto much, as In tho
present statutes, except that the pro
vision Is mado uniform for all cases.
Its main fonture, however, Is a provi
sion that tho times limited for com
pliance with the homestead conditions
may bo extended for good reasons, so
that tho homesteader may not loso his
land for causes beyond his control.
Tho fourth paragraph provides for
tho disposition of homesteads by lot or
drawing. Instead of requiring them to
bo disposed of by auction salo or In
the order of application, which often
results In Injustice or hardship or In
the homesteader having to pay a high
price. Tho method of drawing gives
every ono an equa chance and iermlts
tho homesteader to obtain his and at
a flftd price. This paragraph pro
vides also that notice of any salo or
drawing of public land shall bo pub
lished for not less than Blxty days. In
stead of thirty days ns now provided.
Also, after n tract hns been well ad
vertised and every ono has been given
a chanco, If there nro nny lots not
tnken, or taken and nftorwards forfeit
led or surrendered, they may bo dls
I posed of on application without fur
Ithcr ndiertjsement, thus saving tho
I cost of advertising whero there are
I only ono or two desiring land, and ier
mlttlng a person to obtnln a lot with
out watting for advertisement.
The fifth paragraph permits a pref
erence right to be given to a person
to obtain a homestead when be, or ho
nnd his predecessors In Interest, havo
lived ten years an a piece of land und
Improved It. This Is Intended mainly
for tho benefit of tho Portuguese living
on the slopes of Punchbowl but'.lt cov
ers other cases throughout thMljlandB.
Tho sixth paragraph permltHptenls
to bo Issued to churches for laX hith
erto long used by them as clnim sites.
This applies particularly th'lands
which havo been used as siKh sites
under tho Act ot 1850 and oftlr acts
during the last sixty or moreiycnrs.
The seventh paragraph provides n
check upon sales for other thqb'.liomo
Btead purposes and exchanges-, o land
cither exceeding forty acres tki area
or five thousand dollars In vm , and
leases of agricultural land cxa cdlng
forty acres In area, by providing; that
these things can not bo donnijJlthout
the approval of two-thirds of the board
provided for In this section. ''
The eighth paragraph puts all pub
lic lands undor one department, 'name
ly, that; of public lands, Instead of di
viding them up among several depart
ments as now; this Is for simplicity
nnd convenience. It ulso suttles tho
question as to the status of lands ob
tained by tho Territory In exchiinga
for other lands. Further, It settles
tho question as to who should uinku
tho order when lands In certain c.isoh
nro set aside for public purposes. Ami,
lastly, It provides for general powers
and rules and regulations for tho fill
clcnt administration of tho land laws.
