HOME RULE BILL
FOR COUNTIES IS
ALIVE IN HOUS
. 1 '
Nine Republicans Assist in Giving the
Measure a Chance by Passing
Its First Reading.
Fire Claims Appropriation Receives Approval
of Committee of Whole and Goes
Through Second Reading.
"For the purpose of harmony," as some of the members of th
Republican wing expressed it, but for a deeper reason, according
to many outsiders who have viewed the movements of the Legislature
recently, the Home Rule County Bill, rejected by the House two
weeks ago, was taken from the table, passed first reading, ordered to
print, and thus put iii line for consideration, as soon as it can be h?d
out of the hands of the printer.
; This action of the House, taken early yesterday, was perhaps the
most important thing done, and with the addition of the passing to sec
ond reading, after discussion in Committee of the Whole House, of the
Fire Claims appropriation bill, practically sums up the hard work of
the House yesterday. There was the usual number of resolutions for
appropriations aad notces of bills, with several introductions of
measures, but. withal there was nothing done which upheld the prom
ise of hard work by the lower body. The County bill, which is now
tfte order of the day, has not been laid on the tables of the members,
and consequently has not had its test. There was a well defined rumor
yesterday that the Home Rulers would try and prevent consideration
of the bill until their own measure was printed and placed before the
members, but this could not be verified, and was strenuously denied
by one of the Republicans who voted to take the minority measure
off the table.'
The Senate worked a little, discussing the measure of Kalauoka
lani to license dressmakers, to some extent. The matter was finally
laid over for consideration with the license section of the county bilk,
it appearing that its object was to license establishments, while as
worded it would compel every woman who sews to take out a license.
