FRIDAY, JUNE 18, 188G.
DEUATK ON THE KAAKAt'ALI ELECTION
Rep. Castle seconded the motion,
saying lie had voted Aye in order to
move for reconsideration. The pre
vious question had cut off discus
sion, and of course the only chance
to discuss the question was on a
motion to reconsider it. He moved
the house adjourn till half-past one,
on condition that he should have the
lloor at that hour. This being put
nnd lost, he proceeded to discuss the
merits of tho question. Prior to the
election he had some conversation
with John Richardson with legard
to tho Kaaunpali election, nnd ad
vised him to ust great caro in bring
ing in voters from other districts,
ns tho law was very strict on that
subject. He discussed the mean
ing of "his district," saying the
law of 18G-1 was the only place
where three months' residence was
mentioned. The Attorney-General
during his argument stated that this
matter should not be considered, in
the light of partizanship, not from a
lawyer's but from a statesman's
point of view. Tho right to vote,
that of sharing in making laws for
the kingdom, was a sacred right,
which every member of this houRe
should guard most jealously. He
conceived the question was not to
be limited merely as one whether
Richardson or Kaukau was entitled
to the seat, but it was a question
that concerned the rights of the
people. The only thing the house
could do was to order n new elec
tion. Tho number of electors in
Knunnpali was small, but they were
entitled to their rights. It would
bo granted by every member that it
was sound law that to contest nq
election the question was simply
whether there had been fraud, or
fraud sufficient to turn the scale.
The majority by which the member
holds his scat was three votes. Was
it shown before the Judiciary Com
mittee that there were four votes
or more rejected which should not
have been? It was their bounden
duty if four votes or more were im
properly rejected, to void that elec
tion. He disliked to see anything like
party feeling, but there was a dis
position of the' majority to carry
their point at all hazards, and he
hoped the house would rise superior
to that. It appeared by the evi
dence that at least seven or eight
voters were not allowed to vote,
whose names wcrcr on tho list in
proper order. There was no place
in the lans requiring that a voter
should appear personally before tho
inspectors to have his name entered.
The Hawaiian version did not con
vey that as the only sense, and the
English did not bear that sense. He
asked a man the other day if he had
entered his suit and he said yes ;
but he found out that his attorney
had entered it. Did he lie? No.
Tho list could be corrected in any
way so long as tho judicial officers
were satistied that the corrections
should be made.
Rep. Kaulukou asked if the law
did not provide that a man must ap
pear personally or by his attorney.
Rep. Castle replied that in some
places it did, but where the law said
a person must appear before the
court, tho law was fulfilled through
his appearance by attorney. Ho
had often appeared against the
member for Hilo in court, but never
heard him make tho point that he
was out of court because his client
was not there. The speaker made
this point because it seemed to be
the difllcnlty pressing most on the
member for Laliaina (Aholo), and
he noticed that a good many mem
bers seemed to take it as conclusive
when it was memtioncd. It was not
borne out by any law. Tho lion,
member said he knew himself that
some persons rejected in Kaana
pali went to Laliaina and voted.
That was curious, but it was
tho only placo in the islands
where it could be done. Kaanopali
and Lahaina are one taxation dis
trict, and a voter could vote in
whichever placo he chose. How
ever, there was no evidence before
tho committee of this. It was sim
ply tho statement of tho hon. mem
ber. Those persons went to Kaana
pali to vote for Kaukau or Richard
son, nnd were denied tho privilege.
There was only one way in which
the names could have been removed,
and that should have been followed.
It had been said that if the inspec
tors had broken the law they should
be punished, but 'that would not
restore tho defrauded voters of Kaa
napali their rights. If his view was
correct, and tho evidence was that
moro than four voters who should
have been on the list woro rejected,
that election should bo voided. But
the house had gono somewhat into
the question of domicile. There was
nothing to show that theso men wero
not properly domiciled in Kauna
pali. Tho, majority passed over this
question in a preposterous way.
Rep. Aholo raised tho point of
order that tho remarks being made
wero not admissible on a motion to
The President ruled tjiot tho
speaker was in order,
Rep. Castlo proceeded to discuss
the question of domicile. In the
testimony brought beforo the Judi
ciary Committee in the North Kona
case, a man was asked if he lived
there, nnd ho said, "I do my busi
ness in Honolulu nnd pay my taxes
w" . ,
there, but thU 1 my home."
question was raised before the com
mittee and gone Into very strongly,
nnd he understood the chairman
ngrecd with him on it. In accord
ance with that law, he would chal
lenge tho chairman of the committee
to show that those eight persons
were not residents of Kaanapali ac
cording to law. Ono witness said,
'I do not know them," and another,
"I know two or tlncc of them."
The point in tho Noi th Kona elec
tion was slurred over, and ho be
lioved it was slurred over for tho
purpose of this case. It was waived
over with this silly remark, "Be
cause Pilipo brought n stranger the
point was waived." When ho heard
this read his whole soul welled up
with n feeling of contempt. People
came in hero to havo a wrong righted
in Kona and wero answered that be
cause ono of the candidates waived
n point justice should not bo done.
According to the rules of circum
stantial evidence, lie believed tho
chairman made tho rcpoit on tho
North Kona caso with a view to tho
Kaauapali caso coming up. No iury
would mako n verdict on evidence
similar to what had been produced
in this case. Tho Attorney-General
wiotc his letter to the Board with
the forco of nn order, taking on him
self the authority of a judge, to
strike theso names off tho list. This
Assembly sitting hero as judges had
no light to go behind that list unless
they found that all the requirements
of the law wero complied with in
taking those names off the list. The
Judiciary Committee can have no
more authority than the house, can
not go behind the list and say those
names were taken off properly, and
so ho should vole in favor of the re
consideration of this matter.
Rep. Dole said he had some hesi
tation in speaking, in view of the
opposition of members to the exer
cises of his privilege.
Minister Neumann said there was
not a quorum present. (Several
members entered, making a quo
rum). Ho then moved an adjourn
ment till 2 o'clock, but was ruled
out of order, as ho was not entitled
to the floor.
Rep. Dole proceeded : The ques
tion was not ono between Kaukau
nnd Richardson. It was ono affect
ing rights obtained in other coun
tries by long wars against arbitiary
power. The question was whether
this motion should be reconsidered.
It involved, ilrst, the right of cer
tain citizens living on Maui to cast
their votes ; secondly, a question of
whether a member sits in this house
by fraud, or by the votes of a ma
jority of the electors of that district.
The difference between the two can
didates was three votes. If there
wero enough voters having a right
to vote, but prevented fiom doing
so, then the law has not been com
plied with, and Mr. Kaukau is not
sitting in this Assembly by right of
a majority of voters. Tho member
will not be honorable till doomsday
unless the law is complied with.
This discussion has been treated ex
haustively in favor of the minority
report, and I think it has been
shown that the action of the Attorney-General
was arbitrary and not
within the law. His own rambling,
sentimental argument shows that.
The Constitution and the law of
18G8 gives the right to vote to cer
tain persons of proper age nnd char
acter. Tho majority report of this
committee tosses aside the evidence
before it, for tho minority report
says there was evidence before it.
Thoso eight men wore old enough,
had paid their taxes, and there was
definite evidence that they belonged
to that district. Tho majority of
that committee, who, in tho case of
the election in North Kona, said the
matter was of no consequence, here
say that it is of consequence nnd
throw out the whole 28 voters. The
majority of that committee havo been
trying to ride two borses nt the
same time, and that can only bo
dono by a circus man. Tho
result of that is always a fall. This
house may support tho majority re
port and it will go on record the
strong fight thoy have made to pre
vent discussion, nnd that they had
nothing on which to support their
case. I say that the chairman of
that committee knew that his report
was baseless, nnd that he showed
that it was bo by trying to prevent dis
cussion. If ho had any confidence
in the justice of his own eido he
would not havo been afraid of dis
cussion. This terror on the part of
the chairman was contagious and
spread to tho rest of the house, so
that it adopted this report to its
eternal disgrace. I am glad under
the circumstances that we as a min
ority havo been defeated on the
prinoiplos of fair play. Tho dispo
sition on tho part of His Excellency
was to choke off tho rights of the
electors, and then to be consistent
he must sustain it, by a letter which
he thought would never sco the
light. The Attorney-General knew,
or ho was paid to know, nnd every
lawyer knows, that thoso persons
had a right to havo their names
placed on tho list if it was proper to
do so. And the same persons know
perfectly well that they could only
bo taken off under the statutes
referred to, and by challenging them
as mentioned iu tho letter of the
Attorney-General. And this house
knoivB perfectly wel) thn.t If thoso
names were not taken off in either
of theso two ways, these mon had
just as much right to hold their
votes as to hold their lands under
patent from tho Government. The
Attorney-General, as has been sug
gested, may just as well try to con
trol tho courts of this kingdom as to
'tryto control tiiepoatd so as 0 -
prive electors of thoir votes. As the
cvidenco bcfoio tho liouso goes thoso
eight men have been robbed of their
right to vote, nnd tho district of
Knannpali is not represented in this
houso to-day. Everyono present
knows that no one can bean hon. mom
mber sittingin this houso if ho has not
received a majority of votes in the
distt ict. It is clearly the duty of
this house to order n new election,
and give him a chance to get a
majority of votes according to law.
I havo not heard anything brought
forward to meet tho arguments that
thoso names could only bo taken off
the list under the law quoted. But
those names were removed under tho
order of His Excellency the Attorney-General
which Is under dispute.
I am slightly incorrect there, for
the names were not erased but left
on the list and the men themselves
refused tha right to vote. And the
presence of those names on tho list
is proof to-day that they had the
right to vote.
Rep. Kaulukou raised tho point of
order that the hon. member could
not speak because he voted in the
The President ruled the point not
Rep. Dole: This Star Chamber
order of tho Attorney-General reads
that "It is your duty to strike off
tho names because they nre not en
tered in nccorancc with the provi
sions of section 7." Those names
were not struck off but the men to
whom they belonged were not allowed
the right to vote. This man, the
Attorney-General, sits in his olllco
in Honolulu and dictates to these
men. How could ho know ? "Strike
them off!" If this kind of law la
to havo force in this kingdom the
next thing you will find the Attorney
General writing to tho courts, dicta
ting judgments in matters of escheat.
I bclievo it is right for me to speak
of this whole action, whereby these
men of Kaanapali were deprived of
their rights, as a conspiracy, and if
we uphold it we ' characterize our
selves by its character. Wo the
minority placo ourselves on record
as protesting against this as an in
dignity, an injustice and an outrage.
I am glad to place myself among
the minority in favor of tho rights
of the subject. And I believe that
the minority, no matter how they
vote, havo a lurking suspicion that
this action is fraught with danger to
the rights of citizens. And it be
comes us all to vote on this question
of such great importance as if we
represent our constituents and not
the rights of officials. Tho poor
man's vote is his strongest weapon,
and we must not deprive him of it
or else he becomes a slave.
Rep. Brown said : I presented the
report of the minority of the com
mittee in this case, and I would say
that tho very evidences received in
this caso was rejected in the North
Kona case received in one case
and rejected in the other. That is
tho reason that I prepared and
brought the minority report here,
because having accepted that evi
dence in the caso of Noith Konn we
could not but accept it in the cast
of Kaanapali. The evidence refer
red to thore was as to tho residence
and occupation of these seven or
eight voters complained about, and
it was the same kind of evidence wo
received as to seven or eight mali
hinis who voted in Kona, and it looks
very.much to me as if where the
evidence does not suit it changes
just to suit them. In regard to the
law, by the act of 18C4 three months'
residence was required in a district
in order to entitle a man to vote. In
18C8 that law was repealed. What
is "his district?" For the purpose
of the Kaanapali case, "his district"
was determined by that bpaid in
placing his name on tho list. Theso
persons' names were placed thcro
by these inspectors, and that plac
ing them there denominated just
what their district was. And those
names not being erased, and they
not being challenged according to
law, I submit that this house cannot
go behind it, for the very simple
reason that tho law which states that
the board shall place names on tho
list states tho only means by which
the right to voto shall be refused to
any registered voter. Their names
were there, but they wero simply in
a body denied the right to vote.
Thoy havo residence there, and for
the purpose of this caso they are
fixed there, and tho committee or
this houso cannot go behind the list.
The evidence being sufficient to tho
minority of the committee that eight
of theso votes were enough to turn
tho election of representative, I
think all that has not much to do
with this caso, Tho moro faot of 23
men's names bolng on that register,
and being denied votes without a
cballengo, is quito enough to void
.this election. There were 23 voters
of that district, as far ns this house
kuows from the evidenco produced,
and evidence which this house cannot
go back of, who were refused the
right to vote.
Rep. Kcau moved the previous
question, which carried.
