"Two Ballots for the Roosevelt
Forces were for Good
. -For th? good of Hawaii," Is the
?uccinct explanation of the - Hawaiian
delegation's two votes with the'Roose
velt forces at the Chicago convention,
given by f!overnor Jtear, spokesman
for the delegation, who arrived home
tlds morning on the Wilh'lmina. '
, 1 "For four d.lys we had been gettingj
In close touch with the situation, when
that vote on UcGovern, for chairman
I came up. We were not Instructed by
the Taft forces" and took the responsi
bility of the action on our own'shoul-
- dera. ' ' V . '
"Hut there were conditions prevallina
at that time that. In many ways. Ha -
. wallan , people do not realize existed-
, We found that our ballot would not
swing the tide either way, knew it could
not injure Taft, knew, our instructions
did not compel us to votewith his men
on the point nt ue, and felt that by
. casting our lot temporarily with Roose
velt we-would be employing a' bit of
political tactics that might help " the
i TtrrJtory. ' '.' ' . : , j
Vote Created'Surprise. " ' ' .
' "Of course, when our vote was an-;
nounced. It created somd surprise on
Jittth iWf : . J h t J 1 1 Tp 1 rp e rrw ere" U3n'
renssurt-d end when . they understood
our po.sltion.npreed that we had done
what wr.s-'riKl.t."- ; '
' The llovfriicr- made no comment
tending either to confirm or deny the
. rumor that the vote for McGovern help
ed ;obtain a definite promise. of Frear's
reappointment, and checked a possible
'move to reduce the Hawaiian delegation
from six to two or four members.
He termed Hawaii's stand with
Roosevelt on the contested California
delegates ar "jurely a decision between
. right. and. wrong," In which, as. In the
former case, the Ternitbrial delegates
were not bound by. their instructions
and Je!t ; that no- momentous result
hinged on their attitude. ' .
Made Grave Error. .
"We-were. inclined to think: that, the
Taft forces; as a matter ; of political
tact, hould not have; opposed the
seating of the two Untested California
' delegates, "but should have let ,them
in. n thev did the Texas men. Ifl,
they had consented o seating the Cali
fornia fnen we. believe they would have
eliminated a large portion of the ill
fetling between the factions, so that
the rpllt In the party might have 'been
avoided. . . - '
rWe believed at the time that the
Taft men were making a big tactical
mistake. The Intense feeling aroused
- by the California demonstration would
not have: occurred, and at the same
time: Taffs strength would not; have
.been seriously , weakened.
CovernoiOvear's first visitor, arriv
ing shortly after the executive had en
tered his office at the Capitol this morn
ing, was ex-Governor George JL Car
ter, resplendent in a brand-new "T. R."
campaign hat. For nearly an hour
.these two rehearsed the' scenes and
events j of the big convention for the
tenefit of E. A. Mott-Smith, who this
morning officially retired from the ex
ecutive chamber to his own . office as
secretary of thCTerritory. Closely fol
lowing Carter came Joseph P.. Cooke,
who remained in "private conference
with the Governor for sometime.
The Mexican armies are drawn up
at Bachimba, and it Is expected that
a-decisive battle will ce fought.

Returning fronv Hild this morning,
Joel Cohen took occasion to announce
that he will be a candidate foa tbe
Senate kt the coming,-election. " He
also declared thai although- he is a
Roosevelt man, he Js opposed to the
formation of a third party, more par
ticularly in Hawaii, where he declares
such a move would be fatal to the suc
cess of the " Republican" cause In the
Territorial elections. - -
I had not intended to announce my
candidacy at this time," said Mr.' Cohen
this morning,. "but I talked of my pur

a Roosevelt man, and wanted to see

that lie would have swept ; the countryj
fojr a Republican victory, and I also
believe that if he runs as a third party
nominee. President Taft will be I the
third jnan. in the race. ' ' . . ' ' .1
