The following pages contain the Health Laws of the Ter. ritory of Hawaii, as amended by the extension of the sovereignty and laws of the United States over the Hawaiian Islands, and the Regulations of the Territorial Board of Health, at present in force.
It has been the aim of the compilers to retain all statute law, unless its repeal was beyond a possibility of a doubt. Hence certain laws are included, the validity of which is questioned. So far as the Board of Health, a purely executive body, is concerned, such questions must be left to the decision of competent courts, or future legislative action.
The statute law appears first, arranged in the same order as in the Penal Laws of 1897, so far as that is possible; each section has the same number as in the Penal Laws or Civil Laws as the case may be, and its source is shown in the marginal references.
The abbreviations P. L. and C. L. refer to the Penal Laws and Civil Laws of 1897, respectively; P. C. refers to the Penal Code of 1869; and S. L. refers to the various Session Laws.
The Governor shall nominate and, by and with the advice Terr. Act Sec. 8 and consent of the Senate of the Territory of Hawaii, appoint the members of the Board of Health
-; and he may make such appointments when the Senate is not in session by granting commissions, which shall, unless such appointments are confirmed, expire at the end of the next session of the Senate. He may, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate of the Territory of Hawaii, remove from office any of such officers.
All such officers shall hold office as provided by the Laws of the Territory of Hawaii.
Section 868 P. L. There shall be a Board of Health for the P. C. Ch. 59, Territory of Hawaii consisting of seven members, three of
Gov., 1893 whom shall be laymen, three physicians, and the Attorney. Amended by General ex-officio. The members of the said Board shall be appointed by the Governor with the consent of the Senate of the Territory of Hawaii, and shall be commissioned for two years. All of the members of said Board shall serve without pay. The Board shall elect its presiding officer, who shall be styled the President of the Board of Health; and in case of his absence, any member of the Board may be chosen to preside over the meetings of the Board. The Board shall appoint
Sec. 278. Act 18, Prov.
its Executive Officer, Secretary, Agents, and Physicians, who shall receive such compensation for their services as shall be approved by a majority of members of the Board at a regular convened business meeting thereof, said compensation to be paid out of any funds available to the Board by appropriation.
The Board shall have general charge, oversight and care of the public health, and shall make, through its President, an annual report to the Governor, showing in detail all its expenditures and transactions, and such other information regarding the public health as the Board shall deem of special interest.
