Hon. E. F. Bishop,

President of the Senate.

Sir:-The Judiciary Committee reports further consideration of House Bill No. 69, entitled "An Act to Amend Section 65 of the Revised Laws relating to elections."

The Bill as referred back by the Committee was amended by inserting the whole of Section 65. But Section 1 read: "The first paragraph of Section 65 of the Revised Laws of Hawaii is hereby amended so as to read as follows;" and then follows the whole section as amended. We now recommend that the words "The first paragraph of" at the beginning of Section 1 be stricken out so that that portion of Section 1 shall read "Section 1. Section 65 of the Revised Laws of Hawaii is hereby amended so as to read as follows:"

Respectfully submiited,

In order to meet the objection raised in the debate upon the Bill, that there was no provision made for the summon

H

ing of the truant child to appear before the court, the Committee recommends that the words "such child and" be inserted after the word "cause" in the fifth line of the printed Bill, so that that portion of Section 213 shall read "Section 213. Penalty. If any child of school age shall persist in absenting himself or herself from school, any District Magistrate shall upon a proper complaint being made by the School Teacher or any other officer or agent of the Department, cause such child and the father or mother, guardian or other person having the charge of such child, to be summoned" etc.

Senator Dowsett presented the Report (No. 59) of the Ways and Means Committee on House Bill No. 96 as follows:

Honolulu, T. H., March 14, 1907.

Hon. E. F. Bishop,

President of the Senate,

Honolulu, T. H.

Sir: Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred House Bill No. 96, entitled "An Act to Amend Section 1409 of the Revised Laws of Hawaii, Relating to licenses of Tobacco, Cigars and Cigarettes," begs to report as follows:

The object of the amendment to Section 1409 of the Revised Laws of Hawaii is to exempt the grower of Tobacco from paying the license fee of $10.00 upon the sale by him of tobacco or leaf tobacco, produced on his own land, other

than to the consumer. The Section thus amended will serve to aid the Tobacco industry, which, though still in an experimental stage, promises well and in the opinion of your Com mittee deserves encouragement.

Your Committee also learns that the Section as sought to be amended will conform with the Federal License Act as touching upon tobacco, and it therefore recommends the pas sage of the Bill.

Respectfully submitted,

J. M. DOWSETT,

Chairman.

C. J. MCCARTHY,

W. J. COELHO.
