THE LEGISTATURE AFTERNOON m mm Third Day Afternoon Session. A communication from the house wa3 read, announcing Its passago of house resolution No. 1. President Smith ruled that it per tained to the proposed Organic Act amending bill, and at his suggestion It was laid on the table to 'bo consider ed with that matter. APPOINTMENTS CONFIRMED. President Smith announced the spe cial order of the day to be considera tion of the Governor's appointments. McCarthy stated that he had heard no objections to any of the appoint ments, therefore, to save time, would move that all the appointments In the Governor's message, No. 2, bo con firmed. Coelho asked for ilnformatiofr if George W. Woodruff was the secona judge of the federal court, and, being answered in the affirmative, was satis tied. On the suggestion of Knudsen, for the observance of due form, the list of names was read through. Woods asked if David L. Conkllng, appointed as treasurer, was the gentle man mentioned some time ago as one of those who were going to reorganize the Republican party. If so, he would be proud to vote for him. (Laughter) The motion carried. GENERAL LEGISLATION. Coelho, on the president's announce ment that the next order of the day was consideration of the concurrent resolution covering the proposed amendment of the Organic Act, call ed for a ruling on the question of gen eral legislation. President Smith ruled that general legislatlo nwould be legal. Some states prohibited such procedure In their con stitutions. The Organic Act contained no such imitation. The question of taking up general legislation was en tirely one of policy. Coelho then moved that the reports on his bills bo taken up. Makekau called for a vote on Chll llngworth's motion of the morning ses sion. Baker offered an amendment to that motion, to the effect that the general legislation already Introduced be con sidered, but that no new bills be In troduced. "What Is the use, of voting on.Chll Hngworth's motion if Baker's amend ment passes?'' Woods inquired. "What about the house If it chooses to introduce bill? I . understand the house has passed a motion to confine buslnes to the special matter in the Governir"s message. If I were a member of the house I would vote against ail mese bills." After a general conversation ,much of It In the nature of chaffing, Baker's amendment carried on the affirmative votes of Baker, Brown, Coelho, Har vey, McCarthy, Qulnn and Robinson. There was no need to count the op posing hands raised, with but thirteen members in attendance. COELHO WINS AND LOSES. itKnudsen moved that the senate go into committee of the whole to con sider the proposed amendments to the Organic Act. Coelho moved in amendment to fin ish the business on bills on which com mittees had reported. This was car ried with eight votes. Coelho moved In amendment to fln nlsh the business on bills on which committees had reported. This was carried with eight votes. Tho fish-selling license bill passed second reading, 7 to 3. The bill providing for tho payment of the inheritance tax was lost on the casting vote of the president, who gave as the reason for so deciding that this matter of the finances of the govern ment was settled, at the regular session Amended by the committee of ways and means to reduce the amount ap propriated from $50,000 to $5,000, the bill for the relief of persons released from the leper settlement passed with Robinson alone dissenting. A report of the Judiciary committee was adopted, 7 to 3, to lay on the table Jhe bill to enable persons attaining the age of twenty-one years on or before the day of any general election to re gister. THE ORGANIC ACT. Knudsen was called to the chair of committee of tho whole to consider tho proposed amendments to tho Or ganic Act. Ho proposed that tho bill as amended by tho house bo first read, which was done. Sections 1, 2, 3, G 7, 8 and 0 which had passed tho senate yesterday with an amendment to the proposed Increaso of salaries of legislators tho same as the house made, were all passed with out discussion. iMcCarthy moved his amendment of fered yesterday to section 4, relating to public loans, saying it was in line with tho Joint resolution passed by tho house whlcu passed first reading In the senate at the morning session. sesi Baker offered tho following amend ment to tho amendment, which Mc Carthy accepted as being In better shapo than his amendment and Smith supported it: Provided, that, subject to tho ap proval of the President of the United States, the legislature of the Territory may provide for loans of public money or guarantees of private loans on proper security to settlers on th? pub lic lnnds for necessary permanent im provements of their homesteads and for loans, subsidies, or guaranties to persons or corporations for the Im provement and Increase of transporta tion facilities. Coelho asked if the proposed amend ment wns not opening the way for people not already here to obtain ad vantages over preesnt citizens of the Territory. ... Smith pointed out that the matter Is left to be legislated on by the Ter ritory of Hawaii, with the approval of tne President. Coelho started to speak on the abo itlon of the office of high sheriff, and was Informed that the provision had jeen eliminated from the bill. THE EDUCATION AMENDMENT McCarthy called up the amendments ottered yesterday for the aid of .educa tion. Smith thought either proposal would be objectionable tacked on to amend ments to the Onganlc Act. One pro vided for receiving the Income only of one-third of tho customs receipts which would be only- about $12,000 a year. The other was for one-third of the customs receipts, which would be some thing like $400,000. If they tried to make an amendment to the Organic Act giving us $400,000 or $500,000 a year, the passage of the bill would bo endangered. Coelho "Do you withdraw your amendment?'' Smith "Yes, I do." Coelho "I hate to let it go, but for the sake of harmony I withdraw my amendment." THE LAND LAWS. Smith moved that Sections 5, relat ing to the land laws, pass as passed by the house. Coelho moved the following amend ment: "Strike out all of the words froin the word 'No' in line 3 of Section 5 down to the end of the section, and Insert In lieu thereof the following: " 'The legislature of the Territory of Hawaii shall have power to alter, amend or repeal the lands laws appli cable to the Territory.' " McCarthy seconded the amendment and asked for a vote then,' so that If a majority -was against It the senate could take up the section as passed the house. Woods considered the amendment a good one, but they would be taking chances Jn passing it. They must re member that all territorial property was vested In the federal government, He believed It was the desire of the federal government to give the Terri tory a free hand, but yet It might want to retain some little control in case we went too far. This amendment might destroy the chances of the pas sage of the bill by'congress. COELHO OPEN SFIRE. Coelho said not a word had been re celved from Washington to advise the Territory on this point, nor a word from the members of Congress lately visiting tho islands. As a member of the legislature ho, had a right to be ndvlsed. He believed thoy were being Imposed upon. A law was passed In 1850 prohibiting Hawallahs from going abroard without special permission. The object was to prevent Hawalians from being educat ed for fear thoy might get the upper hand. Had they the interests of the Hawalians at heart thoy would have educated them, but all they did was to encourage them to become sky pilots. If those people felt 'an Interest In the Hawalians, why did not the trus tees of Kamehameha schools try to find employment for Its students on plantations instead of placing Fill plnos there? "What are you talking about?'1 the chair asked. "On tho merits of tho bill," was tho reply. "I have no faith in tho policy of the administration," Coelho went on. "At last session we sustained the votoes of the Governor, but shortly after we ad journed an cmployo of The Advertiser was given a good office and Gfeorge Smithies, a Hawaiian, long in the scr vice of tho government, had to hunt for a Job. "In a way I am representing Link McCandless and his views. (Chairman Knudsen 'Poor old Link!') At no time in tho session of 1909 did I men tion the name of H. P. Baldwin, but today, If I hold out my hand to Sena tor Baldwin, ho refuses It, because Se nator Smith wrote to him, saying that I made a statcmonii regarding him on tho floor of the senate." Smith called the speaker to order for personalities not relevant to the subject under discussion. Coelho said ho was giving tho reasons which prompted him to stand aloof from tho men who persecuted him. Chllllngworth said that ono remark of Colho was pertinent, that regarding aavico ana lnformttlon. Thoy wont on record at the regular session as sup porting Delegato Kuhlo's bill. Ho would like to hear from tho delegato, who was present. THE DELEGATE TALKS. Delegato Kuhlo from behind tho bar spoke substantially as follows: "I do not know If I have anything to suggest to t -Is body. You aro hero to advise mo but If there Is any doubt in your minds as to tho merits of tho bill I should bo glad to clear It up." woods asked If the amendment by Coelho would endanger tho bill. As far as I am concerned," Prince iKuhlo answered. "I am In favor of giving the legislature full control of the public lands. I introduced a bill for that purpose last session. But on consultation with the committee I was led to believe that It would bo Impos sible to have such a measure pass con gress. Members of congress say that tney consider our land laws aro good. Our laws should be in harmony with those of the Nation. "Your are legislating for the whole National wnen you deal with the land laws. I am in favor of the amend ment but It will never pass. You may pass a separate resolution to that effect It will do no harm out nothing of the kind will over pass congress. Do . ..nl a good bill for the sake of a Jby. You want to take the matter out of the hands of the administration you nre getting that privilege here. ifou can not take the power away from ,ress because It is a national mat ter." Smith said States and Territories had some control over land matters, but the United States never lets go control of the public lands. The con gressional visitors told them to let Congress know what they wanted, but It was no uso to ask congress to give up Its control of the public lands. On the question being put only four members voted for the amendment ,and it was declared lost. ANAI-ALIEN PROPOSAL. McCarthy deferred a vote on the main question by offering tho fol lowing amendment: Resolved, That section 5 of the pro posed bill, etc., no amended by Insert ing a new paragraph In said section 5 after the paragraph ending In these words: "Provided that these prohibi tions shall not apply to transfers or ac quisition by Inheritance or by tenants In common," which said new para graph shall read as follows: "No land for which any such certifi cate, lease or agreement shall hereafter be Issued, or any part thereof, or In terest therein or control thereof, shall thereafter, whether before or after a homestead lease or patent has been ls- sled thereon, be cultivated or worked in any, manner whatsoever by aliens." Section 5 passed. The committee rose and recommen- ed that Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 4 be laid on the table and that House Concurrent Resolution No. 1 as amended pass the senate. The report was adopted and the sen ate adjourned. JAPANESE ARMY MANEUVERS. TOKIO. November 5.
