the object of the bill Is to compel the
fcohbr of any Territorial or county
from engaging In nny huitiiimMi outside
of tlifi duties of Ins office, then
it would 1m only proper to include In
the oxrntinn of the trt the holder of

right to Meet only (ho nttorneys nt
law, whose nolo opportunities for adding
to their official salaries id to bo
found in tho line of their profession,
nd to prohibit them from practise,
while other officials nrc permitted to

ns n epinlifientlon for the office
of Treasurer of the Territory or
of the county that he should bo n
banker or a stockholder or officer In :i
hanking corporation or In a trust company,
and then a law was proposed,
' rrohibitlnz such Treasurer from engag
ing In the banking business, or being
an officer or stockholder in a banking
rorporntion or n trust company, tho
inequity of the latter law would be so
evident ns to appeal to every fair-minded
man, but it Is equally unjust
to pass tho lnw, now proposed, to pro
hibit law officers of tho government
from pursuing their profession.
"The law is objectionable becauso
its operation will prevent competent
attorneys from taking sucli ouiciai positions.
Tho snlaricH are entirely too
small to secure the services of any
enniietcnt nttorney, if he is obliged
to forego all private practise. Tho
only way to secure competent lawyers
nnder the proposed law would bo to
increase the salaries so ns to" compensate
the lawyer for the loss of income
arising from" his practise. To do this
would increase the burden of taxa
tion, and add to the ojepenso of the
government, an, alternative which nt
til is tunc is nciuier uesirauic nor pos
"This lnw is an innovation on tho
custom prevailing throughout the Unit
ed States, and its passage in no way
benefits the people. Instcail 61 adding
tn the efficiency of the offices required
to be filled by attorneys at law,
it would impnir that efficiency by putting
in oflico only such lawyers ns tho
-public will not intrust with any
business. In other words, it will
require the people to elect ns
of such offices to do tho public
work, only those lawyers whom tho
jieoplo will not intrust with their
business. Is the Legislature prepared
to say that the proper qualification
for a law officer of the govcrnr
ment is that he shall not possess tho
ability or tho confidence of the community
sufficiently to be intrusted
with the privnto business of the mem
bers of the community! Vet this is
just what the act in effect declares.
"An innovation of this kind on tho
pstnblished usnge of generations in tho
tJnited States of America is in itbclf
a reason for hesitancv. It is true that
in tho largo centers in the United
States the law officers devote all of
their timo to the public business, but
tljrit is not tlie result ot any law sucu
as this, but is the result of the public
business necessarily occupying all their
time. It, therefore, becomes necessary
in sucu places to pay largo salaries 10
obtain competent lawyers, and the sab
aries paid, with fees and perquisites,
run from $0000 to $40,000 and $50,000
"if any of the law officers of the
Territory of Hawaii or of its subdivisions
should neglect tho public
or interests in order to pursue his
jrivnto practise, there is adequate
under existing laws, but to striko
at a wholo class of officers for tho
Juult of one, if nny such there is, is
iriijuKt and wrong.
"Another objectionable feature
in the bill is that it proposes
to prevent district magistrates from
acting as attorneys and counsellors in
amy of the, courts of tho Territory, in
dm district of Honolulu, for example,
there is a first and second district
istrate. The first district magistrate
Is in receipt of a monthly salary for
his services and sits practically every
day lu the year, Sundays and legal
excepted. The second district
xiagiBtrnto ,ery rarely has an opportunity
to perform his functions us a
judge, and when ho does liu receives a
ocrtain daily compensation for each
and every day he acts as' such, and is
in receipt of no regular monthly salary
or other compensation by virtuo of
"To prohibit the second district
magistrate, for example, from pursuing
his profession while in oflico would
simply mean that no lawyer would care
2o accept the position without reasonable
compensation, in tho nature of a
xegular monthly salary. The Territory
l sot in a financial condition to
appropriations along these lines.
"Your committee furthermore be-Hove
that this condition uf nffairs
not only to Honolulu, but to
Tnrious other places in tho Territory,
To bar a second district magistrate
from following bis profession during
the time be wail not actually engaged
n the bench would, lu tho opinion of
your committee, simply mean that the
administration of justice would be materially
hampered, inasmuch ns no law
yer would consent to act in such capacity
under these conditions. For the
foregoing reasons your committee Is
f the opinion that tho bill be tabled,
sad we so recommend."

I'nblie otlielals, too, einplo.vcit the
public paid stenographer and clerk in
tliiur own private work, used government
stationery, government ollices and
government time to carry on private,
prnetiso and it was unfair for them
to bavo these advantages over other
law vers. It happens, too, that County
Attorneys, from their very position, get
business brought the,in which they
would not get unless in such a position
and in this wny tho elected position
becnuio a club with which to get business.
The liar Association's letter was
signed by A. 0. M, Itoberlson and ono
C'uiipy said the liar Association had
coupled their approval of tho bill with
tho proviso that bigger snlnries bo
paid, which shows that competent men
could not be had for tho offices unless
outside practise was allowed. Ho asked
if any thought It rssiuio w gui u
man like Carl Smith, ns deputy county
attorney nt Hilo, if the salary was

allowed I He did not explain why
Smith's siibirv nml that if his incom

and elect Smith to earn it.
"I'ay them what you can and then
give them a chance," wild Coney.
Douthitt said that at no time whllo
ho was Deputy Attorney General or
County Attorney did his privnto
over interfere with bis public
duties in the least. Ho did not think
that the pencils and paper used
from tho public supplies would
bankrupt the county. Tho whole question
was ono of competency, he said,
whether competent men could bo had
for the salaries paid or not. If the right
to practise were cut off compotcnt men
could not bo secured.
He asked why lawyers should bo
picked out to Uiscrlminnto against any
ntoro thau any .other men. if the bill
bo right, a general bill should be passed
about all public officers. He failed
to point out how the lawyers who aro
iudecs aro discriminated against nnd
not allowed to prnctiso their profession
on tho side. Ho said the policy of tho
House wns ono of retrenchment. "AVc
cannot possibly raise tho salaries of
these ollieinls now," no said, tnero
for tho recommendation of tho Bar As
sociation falls of its own weight."
There wns no question about the
spirit of tho bill being other tlin.ii good,
but the situation in Hawaii required its
tabling at this time.
Sheldon refuted some of Douthitt 's
arguments and pointed to thu judges as
evidence of men who eould and would
work for stated salaries. Ho then
pointed out how tho bill had been
chloroformed until nftcr
bill had passed in order to give tho
opposition the chance to argue that no
rluinge in salaries poulu Lie iimuc nnu
tho bill wns too late.
Knmuhii called attention to tlift Ad
vertiser's exposures of the sort of pri

the report of the committee lie tabled.
He thought the law would teach such
officials not to meddle with pitch. Ho
complimented Douthitt on tho fact that
his private praetico had not crowded
his public duties to one side.
The motion to table tho report was
lost. Shingle then moved to adopt tho
report, stnting that ho agreed with tho
principle of the bill but had to agree
now that the salaries paid were not
enough. Jlc had heard from Hilo that

Dear Sir: 1 am on the lookout for
seed rice, and hnve been referred to
you by Mr. 11. 1'. Wood, secretary of
the Chamber of Commerce, Honolulu.
Our rico planters have been buying
seed rice from Mexico for some fifteen
or twenty years, but tho demand has
been ho great that we enn not got
enough nnd thought it might bo possible
that we could get somo seed friin
Hawaii. What this market requires is
a largo beau, and regular, and positively
no red grains or foreign seeds. Several
thousand sacks could be sold hero
if not too high, and comes up to standard.
Our planting scaxou commences
about the first of March, and would
like to be ready for next season if possible.
Would you kindly send mo samples
of your different grades of Bced
rice, and would you please put me in
communication with some business man
that is familiar with seed rico!
Thanking you in advance, I am, respectfully,

more crippled thnn it is nt present, I
should say, as there is a regular monthly
deficit already, The Queen's
tul is n great institution nnd I .should
think that the trustee-) would recognizn
tho folly of antagonizing any part of
the medical profession. To my mind
It is better for the management of that
institution to decldo to treat all doctors
alike, receive any doctor's patients,
poor nnd rich .alike, and have in that
wny tint cooperation of all the doctors.
As it is now, patients paying less than
$1,50 u day cannot bo treated by their
own physician. The consequences aro

of thu cave-in, it being stated that somo
