Bill to make the birthday of Kalanianaole a holiday, 1923.


Unexpected opposition raised against the B. H. 21 which was introduced by Representative John W. Kalua to make the birthday of Prince Kuhio Kalanianaole into a government holiday [kulaia aupuni] was seen last Monday when the bill was taken up for the third reading in the house of representatives [hale o na lunamakaainana]. Notwithstanding the great opposition, the bill passed the third reading, 20 to 10 opposing. This was the first time that great number of people opposing a bill was seen.

Representative Coelho wanted to postpone the third reading of the bill because he had a new bill clarifying the government holidays to put into the hands of the judiciary committee [komite hookolokolo], but he did not announce his opposition to the establishing a new holiday outside of the many government holidays that there are now.

At the calling out of the names of the members, these are the members below who were opposed.

Clark, Coelho, Farden, Fuller [? Filler], Jerves, Lowrey, Paschoal, Silva, Vicars, and Coney.
