At 9:49 o'clock a Message (No. 33) from the Governor vetoing House Bill No. 136, was received and read by the Clerk as follows:

A MESSAGE

TO THE LEGISLATURE OF THE TERRITORY OF HAWAII:

Herewith I return House Bill Number One Hundred and Thirty-six, entitled, "AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 28 OF CHAPTER 9 OF ACT 39 OF THE SESSION LAWS OF 1905, ENTITLED 'AN ACT CREATING COUNTIES WITHIN THE TERRITORY OF HAWAII AND PROVIDING FOR THE GOVERNMENT THEREOF," which I am unable to approve.

This Bill adds $16,360.00 for the coming biennial period to the cost of administering the Counties and deprives the public of an equal amount for much needed improvements in roads and other public work which the Counties now maintain.

There appears at present to be only one County which enjoys a sufficient revenue to warrant an increase of salaries, and I do not consider it sound to jeopardize the operation of

the Counties by increasing salaries, without at least a formal request from the Supervisors, who should be consulted, as they are in a measure held responsible by the voters for the administration of County affairs. This, the first session of the Legislature following the inauguration of County Government proceeds to raise the salaries of twenty-eight out of the fortysix County officials.

As the Bill carries no appropriation, I am obliged to act upon it as a whole, and as many of the increases which it forces upon the Counties are absolutely unnecessary, I take pleasure in recording my disapproval of any such waste of public money.

Executive Chamber, April 30, 1907.

G. R. CARTER,
Governor of Hawaii.

Senator Kalama moved that action on the Message be deferred until tomorrow. Seconded by Senator Knudsen and carried. Senator Smith for the Judiciary Committee reported verbally on the Message (No. 22) of the Governor, vetoing Senate Bli No. 10, recommending that the Bill pass notwithstanding the Veto of the Governor as the Bill drafted to meet the objections raised by the Governor in his Message had been passed and was now before the Governor for his signature.

The Report was ordered received.

Senator Smith moved to reconsider the passage of Senate B'll No. 10 on the Veto of the Governor. Seconded by Senator Coelho and carried.

Senator Kalama moved to defer action on Senate Bill No. 10. Seconded by Senator Chillingworth and lost.

Senator Coelho moved that the Bill pass notwithstanding the Vetc of the Governor. Seconded by Senator Smith and carried on the following showing of Ayes and Noes:

Ayes: Senators Brown, Coelho, Dowsett, Gandall, Hayselden, Hewitt, Kalama, Knudsen, Lane, McCarthy, Smith and Bishop

—12.
