SECRETARY OF HAWAII,

Honorable E. Faxon Bishop,

President of the Senate,

Legislature of Hawaii.

Sir: I have the honor to inform you that the Governor has this day signed Senate Bill No. 23, Act 4, entitled "An Act to Amend Section 379 of Chapter 28 of the Revised Laws of Hawaii, as Amended by Act 65 of the Session Laws of the Territory of Hawaii passed by the Legislature at its Regular Session of 1905, Relating to the Board of Agriculture and Forestry."

I have the honor to be,

Sir,

Your obedient servant,

A. L. C. ATKINSON,

The communication was ordered received and placed on file. Senator Smith presented the Report (No. 29) of the Judiciary Committee on House Bill No. 33 as follows:

Honorable E. F. Bishop,

Sir:

President of the Senate,

Territory of Hawaii,

The Judiciary Committee have had under considera tion House Bill No. 33, entitled "An Act to amend Section 27 of the Revised Laws of Hawaii, relating to Elections, and recommend the passage of the Bill.

Section 27 provides that the election proclamations shall be published in Honolulu in the Hawaiian and English languages in one or more newspapers and copies of so much of election proclamations as relate to the respective districts shall be posted in not less than three public and frequented places in each precinct where such election is to be held; and the Bill under consideration proposes to amend the section by striking out the words in Honolulu" so that the requirements shall be that the proclamations be published in the

Hawaiian and English languages in one or more newspaper, etc., without restricting the publication to Honolulu.

We understand that the practice is to publish such proclamation not only in Honolulu but in other newspapers throughout the Territory, and while omitting the words “in Honolulu" seem unnecessary, still we do not understand that any harm will result. The provision will remain that the publication must be in one or more newspapers and just as much publicity will be given as under the present law.

Respectfully submitted,

W. O. SMITH,

Chairman.
