THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,

Honolulu, T. H., March 1st, 1907.

To the Honorable President and

Members of the Senate of the

Territory of Hawaii.

I have the honor to transmit herewith House Concurrent Resolution No. 5, which was this day adopted in the House of Representatives of the Territory of Hawaii.

Respectfully,

JOHN H. WISE,

Clerk, House of Representatives.

CONCURRENT RESOLUTION.

WHEREAS, by an Act of Congress of the United States, of June 6th, 1906, (34 Stat. 417), the sum of Thirty Thousand Dollars ($30,000.00) has been appropriated for Legislative Expenses of the Territory of Hawaii, upon the proviso that the members of the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii shall not draw their compensation of two hundred dollars, or any mileage, for any extra session held in compliance with Section Fifty-four of an Act to Provide a Government for the Territory of Hawaii, approved April thirtieth, Anno Domini, Nineteen Hundred; and

WHEREAS, the conditions under which this money has been appropriated are, we believe, unprecedented in the annals of American Legislation, inasmuch as it imposes restrictions, harsh and injudicious and inconsistent with the rights, prlvileges and prerogatives of American citizens, and

WHEREAS, said imposed restrictions tend to lower the tone of the Legislature and consequently impairs the usefulness and brings, to a certain extent, discredit on the Members of the Legislature of Hawaii, and encourages adverse criticism, and as a whole, works against the best interests of all;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring, that we, the Members of the Legislature of Hawaii, believing that Congress in appropriating the said $30,000.00 did not intend (in the restriction made) to discredit or in any way be disrespectful to the members of the Legislature of Hawaii, do hereby accept the amount appropriated under the proviso contained in said Act; and

RESOLVED FURTHER, that copies of this Resolution be transmitted to the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States of America.
