Therefore It need not surprise nny-J "It Is n gum ehoo proposition,"
nno that I J D. Tenncy speaking for commented Manager (loodalo of Wal

morning showing th& McCrosson

h" woro males and 19 femnles.
Governor Krenr expressed hlmsolf
ns well Mtlslled with tho results of
his tilp to Hawaii.. Ho declared that
tho opposition Milted In Illlo to tho
toinis of the MrCrossnn bill wiib
based mainly on tho form intlior than
on tho principle, Involved. Ho snld
tome of tho opponents wanted the
hill made specific nnd not geneinl,
while others thought additional safe

Tho first knowledge that Governor

when ho was Informed of tho cable
"I did not know that tho bill was

I know su-li a bill was In existence"
said tho Governor this morning. Ho
Intimated further that the action uc

f'ould be unfair to the w'ahlawa.dnm
people and Mould detract Beriously
from the value gf their water supply.
