HOUSES OF LEGISLATURE
AT CROSS PURPOSES 1 The Senate yesterday, 'in a dignified way, voted to pay a unanimous tribute of respect to the memory of Mrs. Jane L. Stanford, a woman in whose honor the legislature of the great state of California adjourned for' a day, and whose tragic death in Honolulu has shocked the civilized world. The House, although an attempt was made there by Coelho of Maui to have some similar action taken, because of the show of rather pettish spirit on the part of one of its members, did not do likewise. After this refusal, when the House got ready to go to lunch-con it took a recess until 7:30 p. m. to permit some twenty of its members to attend the funeral of the late Warden Kamana of Oahu Prison. Warden Kamana was an excellent official and a most worthy man, and so entitled to all respect but there will perhaps be comparisons here that will not be as flattering as they might be. The recess was taken also on the motion of Mr. Coelho. On the other hand, the Senators indulged in a perfect tempest of wrath because some of the members deemed that they had not been given proper consideration at the hands of the House in the matter of the Molokai junket, swearing by all that they held dear not to sacrifice the Senatorial dignity. The while the House was preparing to invite them with all due rcSpcct and ccrempny to go along to isfolpkat. And so "we arc all pore critters" and sometimes very human. DAY. THE SENATE. Tke Senators yesterday swore by their gods that they would not bend the servile knee to get to ride on the steamer chartered to bo to Molokai. Perish the thought! They would charter a steamer of their own first, and so away by themselves to play. And all this tlnie, In the House, an Invitation to the Solons, couched In due and respectful language, to go upon that very trip was being prepared, nil of which made the little tempest In a teapot above stairs somewhat funny. Tho trouble was precipitated by a resolution offered by Hayselden thai a committee of five be appointed to with the House Health Commute and see whether the Molokai Junket tangle could not be straightened out In a way that would be satisfactory to all parties. . McCandless was on his feet In n moment In opposition to the resolution. The House, he said, hnd nlready turned the Senate down In this very matter. He did not think It was dignified for the Senators now to go down upon their knees and ask to be allowed to go on a "ooat where they evidently were not wanted. The Senate could charter n steamer of Its own for $100, and could ytake Itself, Us nttaches, the band and the members of the press to the Set- Vtlement. "It the House wants the Senate to go It Is up to the House to ask us," said Paris. "We would not take the Senate 11111 70, the second-hand dealers' license bill, on third reading was referred to the Judiciary Committee. Senate Bill 78, to provide for the appointment of a Board of Immigration, passed third reading without dissent. Sennte Bill 79, on third reading, was postponed until today. On Lane's motion to reconsider, Bill 70 wus taken from the Judiciary Committee and read for the third time. This Is tho second-hand dealers' license bill. It was amended so that such dealers could keep their books In any language that pleased them, and the hill passed without dissent. House Bill 79, to promote the display of tho American flag on school houses nnd court houses, was amended to take tho Territory out of tho business of Importing and denllng In Hags, and tho passed third rending without dissent. House Bill 1, th'e County Act, passed first reading and went to the Printing Committee with Instructions to have 100 copies printed. House Bill SO, to punish desecration of the flag, passed first reading. It will be read for the second time tomorrow. House Bill 81, the statute of limitations, passed first reading. Head second time today. House Bill 103 passed first reading and will be read for the second time today. Sennte Bill G5, providing that bank ing Institutions shall mako reports, wbb read for the second time, with the amendatory report of. the Ways and Means Committee. The report was adopted and the bill passed. The bill will be read for the third time today. , The Senate then adjourned until 2 p. tive. They have tabled our resolution m. today in order that the members on this very matter. Let tnem now make the first advance." THE HOUSE SENSITIVE. Hayselden defended his resolution, saying thnt the House was very sensitive upon this matter. Besides, he said, the House had already asked the Senate to take part In the plan. This asslrtlon was questioned by several Senators, and Paris said thnt the Sennte would be put In rather a bad position by tho appointment of such a committee as wns nuked for un der the resolution. The Senate should keep up It!) own dignity, nnd not go down on its knees to the House. Achl sided with McCandless nnd Paris, charging the House with constant and persistent discourtesy to the Senate. And he thought that If the Senators wanted to go to Molokai they should go Independently of the House. Dickey tried to pour oil upon the waters by urging the Senators to humor the little fellows down stairs, and Hayselden once more pleaded for peace, but his resolution was decisively beaten on the vote. At the opening of the session Dickey presented a petition In favor of a strict Sunday law from John Mngoon. Dickey gave notice of hlB Intention to introduce a bill to compel the placing of fire escapes on buildings. UoCandless Introduced the following Joint resolution, which passed without opposition: "Be It Resolved, By the Senate and I the House of Representatives of the Territory of Hawaii, "That to commemorate' the name of his late Majesty Kalakaua, during whose reign Hawaii made great advancement in material prosperity, the highway In Honolulu, Island of Oahu, leading from King street to Kapiotani Park, shall be known as Kalakaua avenue. " MATTERS pP ROUTINE. Downett Introduced a bill to amend the game law, and Achl Introduced another. Rend first time by title and sent to the Printing Committee. Governor Carter's veto of the leprosy divorce bill was taken up, but It was found thnt the Senate had no copy of the measure, a House bill, as It had passed, and consideration was potponed until today. Senate Bill St, the branch bank license bill, came next on third rending. Bishop as the Introducer of the bill offered an amendment permitting the license to be fixed in the regular license bill. This makes the bill simply one to authorize the establishment of branch banks. The provlson excepting Hllo from the operation of the law was also stricken out. The bill then pass sd third reading. Brown, Hayselden and Hewitt voted against it. might nttend the funeral of tha late Mrs. Stanford In a body. They will meet In tho Sennte Chamber nt 7:45 a. m. this morning, nnd proceed to Central Union Church. THE HOUSE. The House of Representatives Is get ting Into bad habits. It Is talking too much about matters which do not amount to anything at all and yes terday was n had day. The Health Committee reported that It had made arrangements for transportation to the Leper Settlement on the steamer Klnau on the terms previously reported. The boat w.ll luavo here at 10 p. m. on Saturday, Mmcli 18, returning leaving the Settlement nt dark Sunday evening. The report was filed. AFTER COURT CLERKS. 4tfMmi tWfri ...ifflXfti , , ,l, i, ii,i.i, , -, jC It - HAWAIIAN GAZETTE, FRIDAY, MARCH 17, 1905- -SEMI-WEEKLY, Such discussion as came up during tho morning session was really tif a formal nature, but as usual thTJ was a long discussion when the matter of the coming visit to the Settlement on Molokai was discussed. The Committee on Public LindJ nn,d Internal Improvements rejniltd on the following matters: For repairing road, $15,000. (Kanlho). Recommended. For Improving Lahalna water wrrks, $3,000. (Pall). Recommended. For macadamizing road, $8000; for constructing road, $5000; for road, $6000. (Lewis). Recommended. For macadamizing Road E off Sheridan street, Honolulu, tlWO. (Hair's). Recommended. For maintaining and Improving 11 Park, Hllo, $5000. (Levis). Recommended that $3000 be appropr'.ved. The Finance committee suiimlttd a letter received from the clril:s of the Circuit Court of tho Firs': Circuit submitting that as clerks tiny rwclvo no perquisites, but that what extra work they do Is done in their own time without Interfering with their duties. The report wns filed. The Finance Committee recommended the indefinite postponement of steln's bill exempting fiom llcnse ffo those who sell salted, corned or Jerked beef. The report wns til'lei u be considered with the bill. . The Finance Committee recommended the passage of Holsteln's bill to repeal Sections 94 and 95 of Act 64, 1896. with the amendment that Section 1406 of the act be stricken out. HOL8TEIN'S BAD TASTE. Coelho moved that the House should not meet Until 11 o'clock this morning ,n order to give the different members who wished to do to a chnpee to tho funeral services of the late' Mrs. Stanford, but, when Holsteln objected. On the score that public Interest should be conserved and a Belect committee of three should be appointed to represent the House, Coelho withdrew his motion. Speaker Knudsen named Long, and Kanlho as members of the Joint conference committee with the Senate on the bill respecting the duties of registrars of conveyances. A concurrent resolution was read from the Senate suggesting that a committee from both chambers should make tho following inquiries of the banks in the Territory: "In case tho County Act is passed as proposed by the County Commission with a tax law at one per cent, will the banks discount the county warrants? "If so, at how much discount? To what extent will tho banks advance? Any other questions relating to the financial standing of the counties." Hnrrls pointed out that until the taxation bill wns passed no committee would be In a position to place the necessary Information before any bankers as to county taxntlon. A, motion by Kanlho to take three, physicians to the Leper Settlement to examine those who might wish to Be examined wns put over for a day for consideration. And nfter the House had refused to adjourn long enough to permit the members to attend the funeral of Mrs. Stanford, It took a recess from noon until 7:30 p. m. to give about twenty of Its members an opportunity to attend the funernl of Warden Kamana of Oahu Prison. EVENING BE8BION. At the evening session of the House the "Spitting" bill from the Senate was tabled on ft. vote of 14 to 11. There came a long discussion om the matter of smallpox where Coelho occupied an hour or so of the time of the House. The matter was deferred until after the trip to Molokai. Pulan's bill to prohibit the cremating of deceased persons without the, consent of the family of the deceased caused a long discussion. Knlelopu made a speech In Hawaiian which wns not translated by Interpreter "Wilcox. Andrnde who understands the language objected to the speech on the ground of Its being personal. Knlelopu subsided and the bill was considered nt some length. Section 2 rnn thus: "If any person wishes to be cremat ed, or the family of any deceased, no tice must be given to the Board or Health In writing, but the expenses must be borne by the person or family who so desires to be cremated." Then again came the penalty clause which ran thus: "And If any person or persons fall to comply with the provisions of this Act, he or they shall be guilty of a crime, nnd If proved guilty shall be Imprisoned not more than one year nor less than Blx months." It may occur to the average observer that if the bill become a law there would be' n few people In this Territory of Hawaii who, In the langunge of the Btrcet, would be "up against It." The bill seemed to appeal to a certain section of the House and Kanlho made a Bpeech strongly in support of tho position tnken by Pulna who objected to", having fun made of his bill. Agnln Andrade objected when ho stat-ed thnt tho honorable member wns using personalities but nobody worried very much and the steam of eloquence flowed on unimpeded. Tho matter was referred to the Health Committee. The House took up the matter of Governor Carter's message vetoing the net providing for the divorce of persons afflicted with leprosy. Pulaa moved to sustain the veto of Governor Carter and the motion carried by 24 to 6. Pulaa Immediately followed by Introducing nnother bill following the lines Indlcnted in the Governor's message, the bill passing Its first reading on title. The House decided to put Pulaa's bill as an order of the day and adjourned at 10:30. THE SENATE TWENTY-FOURTH DAY. There was no morning session of the Senate yesterday, owing to the funeral ceremonies attendant on the departure of the remains of the late Mrs. Jane L. Stanford for San Francisco. President Isenberg called the Senate to order at 2 p. m., when Chaplain Parker offered an opening prayer. COMMUNICATIONS. THE SENATE. A letter from Secretary Atk'nson Informed the Senate that Governor Car ter had Hlgned Act 4, providing for Indexing the records in the office of the Registrar of Conveyances. Another letter stated that the Governor had signed Joint resolution No. 4, authorizing the Secretary to give the members of the Code Commission and of the County Act Commission, and the clerks thereof, each a copy of the Revised Laws of Hawaii. A letter from the House stated that Senate resolution No. 10 had been laid on the table of the House. This wns Achl's resolution to ask the banks about terms on which they would discount county warrants. THE MOLOKAI VISIT. Another communication from the House was an Invitation, asking tho members of the Senate to Join the House Committee on a visit to the Leper Settlement, Molokai, on Saturday evening the 18th Inst, In Wllder'a steamer Klnau. , (Continued on pare J.) (From Wednesday's. Advertiser.) The funeral services over the remains of the late Mrs. Jane L. Stanford will take place at Central Union Church this morning, beginning promptly at 8 o'clock. The Episcopal funeral service will be recited by Bishop Rcstarick,. and Dr. Kincaid will deliver the funeral oration. A part of the interior of the church will be reserved for Stanford graduates and a part for natives of California. Following the church service, a procession will be formed and march to the Oceanic wharf, where the remains will be laid in the treasure room of the steamer" Alameda for the voyage to San Francisco. That portion of the ship will be appropriately draped. NOT DUE TO POISONING. In our judgment, after careful consideration of all facts brought to our knowledge, we are fully convinced that Mrs. Stanford's death was not due to strychnine poisoning nor to intentional wrong doing on the part of any one. We find in the statements of those with her in her last moments, no evidence that any of the characteristic symptoms of strychnine poisoning were present. We think it probable that her death was due to a combination of conditions and circumstances. Among these we may note in connection with her advanced age, the unaccustomed exertion, a surfeit of unsuitable food and the unusual exposure on the picnic party of the day in question. These conditions were perhaps somewhat aggravated by the presence of strychnine and other drugs in a medicinal capsule, and possibly also by the presence of a small amount of strychnine contained in a dose of bicarbonate of soda. The occurrence of this- strychnine in the bicarbonate of soda is as yet unexplained. The fact that it is not in excess of usual medicinal proportions suggests either an error of a pharmacist or else that the combination was prepared for tonic purposes. , We must recognize that the preliminary hypothesis of accidental poisoning seemed a natural one under the extraordinary circumstances. We regard it, however, as without foundation and wholly incompatible with the evidence in our possession. We cannot express in too high terms our appreciation of the generous sympathy and friendly hospitality shown by all the people of Hawaii with whom we have come in contact. We have como to Honolulu on the saddest of errands, and we leave with the warmest feelings of gratitude towards the .beautiful island, the generous-hearted city and its helpful and sympathetic citizens. DAVID STARR JORDAN. TIMOTHY HOPKINS. Honolulu, March 16, 1905. 9??yyy5$99i?y5?5$vy95;3 MEDICOS ARE AGAINST THE OSTEOPATH BILL The Medical Society of the Territory of Hawaii placed Itself on record last night, nt a special meeting as opposed to Senate Bill No. 53, the osteopathy bill," Introduced by Senator Dickey, which they say Is a measure to let down the bars aim give any person with a so-called medical diploma an from the Treasurer : : : a license In form and manner substantially as hereinafter set forth. Such license shall only be granted upon the written recommendation of the Board of Health, provided, however, that licenses to practice osteopathy may.be granted to graduates holding diplomas from any legally chartered and regularly conducted School or College of Osteopathy without such recommendation of the Board of Health. And, provided further thnt the practice of medicine as contemplated and set forth In this Act shall not be construed to exclude .the diseases could be cured by osteopathic or massage treatment. Dr. Coopei quoted fiom the Medical Journal, In which It was said that osteopathy, according to ts founders and advocates, was a system of treatment of disease without drugs. Wherever they have been licensed to practice they are not authorized to administer drugs or to perform surgical operations. The opportunity to come to the Territory Journal further states that osteopathy and practice. In other words, the bill ns framed, makes it imperative that a man, who has spent years of his life In obtaining a theoretical and practical knowledge of the profession of medicine, no matter how eminent in the laws were designed ns entering wedges to open a way to unlimited Irregular practice. In Georgia, Gov. Candler vetoed the osteopathy bill passed by the General Assembly. The act bad been passed despite the most earnest protests of the medical profession. The Governor said: "I withhold my profession he may have been at his provaj rrom tns Dm because, aside last place of residence, to undergo a from the objection that It advertises rigid examination before the Territorial one particular school, there Is no .. necessity for such an enactment.

There .are already three . . . same with the Treasurer, and he or ' a candidate passes an examination she can then practice osteopathy. I X? tlZT'. h" Dickey's bill is to amend Section 1063 npply y treatment he may deem best, of the Revised Laws, to read as including the methods of osteopathy, lows: I If he Is not a graduate of a reputable "No person shall practice medicine medical college, and cannot pass a surgery in the Territory of HaWalt factory examination in the usual . . . without first havlncr obtained branches of medical education, he ought not to be licensed to engage in the practice of medicine." In Kentucky, Judge Toney of declared osteopathlsts could be prosecuted under the existing laws. In Iowa it hub been brought out that the osteopathlsts, although dleclamlng the use of drugs and having made claims that their treatment precluded the necessity of giving medicine, are now demanding the, right to use It. "This lets out the whole secret," Bays the Medical Journal. ''They are simply trying to legitimatize diploma- mills, trying to open a short cut to the use or nny metnoa or means or any ( medical profession, or one that reagent either tangible or Intangible by quires no qualifications which any person licensed to practice osteo pathy, for the treatment of disease in the human subject, ance cannot overcome." Dr. C. B. Wood said that no arguments were needed by members of the "iToviaea. nowever, uiai any pemuu medlcai profession to convince them applying for a license to- practice os- Umt the Dckejr ,aw woud the shall first file with the Treas-1 teopathy here to a flood Qf of nM urer a certified copy of such Diploma klnds Qn and satsfactory evidence that the brIer , maintain a ff'SS.U ff SWStSSSSr!?

Mr. Smith said he did not believe the Governor- would approve such a passed the Legislature. bill, even If It Mr. Smith showed the bills on medical subjects which have been Introduced In the Legislature. Among then was Senate BUI 68, relating to leprosy-This provides for a suspected person, to be taken before a District Magistrate, etc. Dr. Cooper said a being prepared to this, the Lone bill, which he thought would avoid some of the dangers. Senate Bill 29, relating to ChUcss. fcprlnkllng clothes, was deemed a good one, but W. O. Smith said the In 1898 declared It unconstitutional to prevent Chinamen from sprinkling clothing In that manner. "They have a bill up now preventlaff a man from spitting anywhere to said Dr. Wood, dryly. "J Bhould think In that case they would surely stop a Chinaman from spitlUsr all over our shirt bosoms." The question of cemeteries in the ttr llmlts came up. Mr. Smith thought ait expressibn of opinion on the subject should be voiced. Dr. "Wood and Dr. Cooper gave' instances where coffins I tho present cemeteries could not bo lowered in the water-filled graves and people had to Btand on them while earth was thrown In.
