CARTER WILL VETO.
Honolulu, March 26. A solid
Scnntc will back the Governor in
his every effort to straighten out
present Tenitorial financial difficul
ties nt the special session of the
Legislature called for April 6.
President of the Senate Clarence
Crabhe, viewing preparations for
the accommodation of the Senators
in the great chamber in the capital
formerly occupied by the Depart
ment of Public Works, this morn
ing expressed himself to the above
"In the Senate there will be a
solid fifteen," said Mr. Crabbe,
audit is my hope that the recom
mendations of the Governor in re
gard to appropriations will be acted
iipon and passed without loss of
time; I think they will be.
''The Governor has spent a long
time and has brought to bear a great
amount of carelul study concerning
financial conditions; he has thor
oughly gone over the whole matter
with the heads of the various de
partments; he is the best informed
of any on the needs in the line of
retrenchment; we can safely be
guided by his suggestions; his final
statement of the cuts necessary
should be sufficient to guide us, and
I, for une, believe in backing him
up to every detail on this proposi
tion and legislating accordingly.
"We ought to he nble to finish
the business of this special session
within twenty days. I know of no
reason for any opposition to plans I
as now perfected. Let us go
through with the necessary busi-
iiess with dispatch. ,

Even should bills concerning other Grand Jury some time ago and his

they pass, they will be vetoed." is one of the United States senators
It is understood that George A. from Kansas and was a member of
Davis was desirous of presenting the Mitchell Senate Commission
his bill regulating the admission of
attorneys to the bar for passage at
the special session.
This bill was published yesterday,
and, as previously reported, Mr.
Davis called on the Governor, hand
ing him the bill for consideration,
Mr. Davis was given to understand,
it is said, that, even if his L'll was
passed at the special bession, the
Governor would veto it.
The special session is to be solely
and entirely devoted to the hand
ling of financial matters. The two
appropriat on bills to be introduced
will be handled simultaneously, one
by the Senate, the other by the5ydicate. the ' contro1 of Postal
tt l matters, and "squared" the Rialto
Night sessions will be held. Elec
tricians are now working on the in
stallation of extra lights in the
chamber to be occupied by the Sen -
ate. Within a day or two the room
will be ready for occupancy.
With the practical assurance that
any bills outside of financial mat
ters will be promptly vetoed by the
Governor, should the time, of the
special session be taken up, for any
reason, in considering such sub
jects, it is considered unlikely that
any attempt will be made to force
