"Two Ballots for the Roosevdt
Forces were for Good
. of Hawaii" '
"For the good "of Uawalf." is the
succinct explanation of the Hawaiian
tlelfgatlon'a two votes with the Roose
velt forces at the Chicago convention,
given by governor Frear, spokesman
for the delegation, who arrived home
this morning on the" Wilhelmina.
' "for four days we had been getting
in close touch with the situation, when
that vote on McGovern for chairman
came up. We 'were not instructed by
the Taft forces and took the responsi
bility of the" action , on our own shoul
. ders. . ; 1 . . . .
But there were conditions prevailing
at that time that. In many ways. Ha
waiian people do not realize existed.
We found that our ballot, wouldt not
swing the tide either way, knew it could
not injure-Taft, knew our instructions
did not compel us to-vote with his men
on thii point at Issue, and felt that by
casting our lot temporarily wkh Roose
velt we would le employing' a bit of
political tactics that: might help the
Territory. ; , : ' '
"Of course, when our vote, was an
nounced, it created som6 surprise on
both ;ldes, but the Taft men wfre feoon
rea ured i-'iad. .u hm-vlliy-inderstood
our position "iigreed that we had done
what was right.". . v - y i
The Governor - made - no , comment
tending cither lo confirm or deny the
rumor that the vote for McGovern help
ed obtain H definite promlse,of Frear's
reappointment, and checked a possible
' move to reduce the Hawaiian delegation
from six. to two or four members.
lie termed Hawaii's stand with
. Roosevelt on the contested California
delegates as "purely a decision between
right and wrong," in which, as In the
former case, the "ferritorial delegates
. were not bound, by their Instructions
and felt 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, should not have opposed the
sea'tlng of the two contested California
delegates, but should have let them
In. as th;y did the Texas men. If
they had consented to seating the Cali
fornia men, we believe they would have
eliminated a large portion of the ill
feeling between the factions, so that
the split In the party might have been
"We 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 Taft's strength would not have
been seriously' weakened. ' .
Governor Frear's first visitor, arriv
ing shortly after the executive had en
tered his office at the Capitol this morn
ing, was ex -Governor George R. Car
ter, resplendent in a brand-new "T. R.?
campaign hat. For nearly an hour
these two rehearsed the scenes . and
eventa of the? big convention for the
benefit of E. A. Mott-Smith, who this
morning officially retired from the ex- A
ecutlve chamber to his own offlie as
secretary of the Territory.' Closefy fol
lowing Carter came Joseph P. Cooke,
who remained In private conference
with the Governor for some time. '
The Mexican- armies are drawn up

a decisive battle will ue fought. , ,

By C. S. ALBERT.
Special Cornspondence, Star-Bulietih.J
WASHINGTON, D. C, June 27.
The Liberal or Progressive partj "in
formally" formed In Chicago, by the
delegates who refrained from voting
when the presidential nomination was
made, does not seem destined to be
come either formidable or aggressive,
in the opinion of politicians here. Al
though Colonel Roosevelt was pro
claimed the candidate chosen by this
mis-called rumot convention, it is con
sidered doubtful whether a real as
semblage will even be held to ratify the
pronouncement made. There is talk of
a gathering at Denver in August, where
the Liberals or Progressives will frame
up a platform and choose nominees for
President and Vice President, but the
wise ones shake their heads and say
this will never be called to order.
The old warhorses here declare that
the Roosevelt delegates met and enun
ciated their faith in the colonel as a
salve to his fallen pride and wounded
feelings. It was simply like : giving a
lump of sugar to a small boy after
getting his lingers mahed. It is said
that all the followers of the colonel
who are candidates for office on regu
lar tickets can not afford to accept his
newly-raised standard and march un
der it. Governor Stubbs of Kansas Is
mentioned as an illustration of this
maxim. lie is an avowed candidate for
the United States Senate. He can not
hope for success as a bolter. "It is es
sential above all things that he remain
in the party as now constituted and
mtike his fight along regular tines.
Those supporting him. can not afford to
be classified as out of the organiza
tion. ' .' -'

such a move would be fatal to the suc

this morning, "but I talked of my pur
pose In Hilo, and as the news has
reached Honolulu, it may be said that
I am In the race.

record as being opposed to the forma
tion of-a third party In Hawaii; I am
a - Roosevelt 1 man, and wanted . to see
him nominated at Chicago, : belie"ve
that he would "have swept the country
for a Republican v-ictoryi and I also
believe that if he runs as a third party,

Roosevelt, 1 believe" a " third "party "In

stroying the Republican organization
here and giving the Democrats the vic

as1 they are now. If we had" an elec
