THE GAK.DKN ELAND TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20 1914,
The news came-by wireless late
last Tuesday that the Supreme
Court had reiulcn-d a decision in
the Primary Kleetion cases in which
it was ruled that all nominated
candidates for the Legislature
must run again in November, no
matter how many votes they may
have received. In so far as Kauai
is concerned, the decision means
that the election will have to be
held over again almost precisely
as before, except that the next
time it will be a Territorial in
place of a strictly county affair. In
reaching its conclusions the court
"The answer to one of the ques
tions being decisive, we deem it
inadvisable to pass upon the others,
thou;h urged by counsel to decide
them. We believe no useful pur
pose .vould be served by discussing
questions which are not necessary
to the determination of the case in
hand, and may never require de
cision, and the solution of which
seems not to be needed to assist
the executive officers in discharg
ing t lei duties under the law."
The o; ;.iion. including a brief
review of the salient points, covers
four and one half pages. In con
clusion the supreme court says:
"We hold that the proviso con
tained in section 16 of the primary
law cannot legally apply to candi
dates for membership in the legis
lature. Our answer to the first
question reserved is in the nega
tive." This first question, as quoted ii
the opinion, was as follows.
"Do the provisions of section 16
of Act 151, session laws of 1913.
which provide as follows: 'Pro
vided, however, that any candidate
receiving the votes of a majority of
the registered voters voting of the
district in which he is a candidate
shall be thereby duly and legally
elected to the office for which
he is a candidate at such primary',
refer to or include candidates for
the office of members of the legis
lature of the Territory of Hawaii?"
In its syllabus the court says:
"Section 85 of the Organic Act, as
ainmended June 28,1906, authoriz
ing the legislature of the terri
tory to alter or amend the election
laws of the territory, does not
authorize the legislature to pro
vide by statute for the election of
members of the legislature at a
time other than that fixed by sec
tion 14 of the Organic Act for the
holding of general elections.
"The proviso contained in sec
tion 16 of Act 151 of thesession
laws of 1913, to the effect that any
candidate at a primarv held pur
suant to the Act in the month of
Seotember who receives a majority
of the registered voters voting of
the district in which he is a candi
date shall be there bv duly and
legally elected to tke office for
which he is a candidate, cannot
legally apply to candidates tor
membership in the legislature in
view of the provision of section 14
of the Organic Act that general
biennial elections for members of
the legislature shall be held on the !
Tuesday next after the first Mon-'
day in November," 1

Mention was made a few weeks

forestry, prior to his departure to
take achairin Cornell, in which he
spoke of tree planting on Kauai in
a very complimentary fashion.
Following is that part of his report
While on Kauai early in July. I
visited the Papaholahola Spring
reserve above Homestead where,
under the immediate direction of
Mr. Walter D McBryde, the Divi
sion of Forestry maintains a sub
nursery for t he growing and local
distribution of seedling trees, and
an experimental ground for the
trial of new species.
Conditions at the nursery were
found t o be very satisfactory.
Through the recent improvement
of the road the station has been
made much more accessible. This
should help to increase the number
of plants that are annually given
(jut. The blocks of trees in the area
above the nursery are doing well.
Provisional ai rangt tnents were
made with Mr. McHrde forextend

In this connection I wish oiTiei
iilly to call attention to the tree
planting by homesteaders and
others in the vicinity of Homestead
that lus been going on in the last
few days. Largely as a result in
the first instance of Mr. McISryde's
own efforts, the planting around
Kalaheo has become general, so

tion of shaded roads and tree sur
