Speaker's Alarm.
Speaker Holsteln yjus very muth
yesterday over what ho clainiod
constituted a lack of foresight on the
part of Governor Frear, because the
latter had failed to issue a proclamation
convening tho seventh legislature
of tho Territory of Hawaii in rogular
"It is euitomary for tho Governor to
published a proclamation calling the
legislature to assemble," said Speaker
Holsteln yesterday afternoon to Tho
Advurtiscr, "but ho hub evidently let
it slip his memory.
Tho Governor smiled when the matter
was broached to him, diroctly afterward.
"Why, nq proclamation has
been issued convening tbo legislature
because none is needed for a regular
session," said tho Governor, "The Or
ganic Act speeiucally provides now mm
when the legislature shall convene.
There is us much reason to convene
the legislature by proclamation as thero
is to issue a proclamation convening
tho supremo court or establishing my
oflico hours."
Speaker Holsteln will now euso his
mind for, on the question of tbo laclc
of an official gubernatorial proclamation,
tlio legality of tlio coming session
will not bo attacked at ull.
