A emooth-working and -. powerful
combination of precinct forces be

flattened out opposition with such
ease in the Republican county con

The " final - maneuvers that coppery

It was .not until yesterday t morning

The mayoralty situation is ttoday
giving considerable'rconcern to the! Re-
publican' leaders, because of the fact
that the withdrawal of John C, Lane,
the elimination of Kben Low by what
he feels was the steam:roller route,"
the naming' of . CoL ; Parker and the
splits cauied by the defeat of certain
aspirants for various oftrccs, h.'vve "U

was knifed, when deals are made that

what can a man expect of his party? '
asked Low this morning of a group of
politicians and interested spectat6rs
Dt the corner of Fort and King streets.
Low says that a number of Fifth dis:
trlct precincts were pledged to him
and that the delegates were all in
favor of him. but that they were forc
ed to go with the combination. "A
man dare not come out for "office in
Honolulu" taid Ixw with internes4
that was echoed by several around
him.'. "It makes no difference how
good a man's public record ;v.y be. hr

.low was eliminated last night by a ,

That all the coffee supplied to the

to make a-trip to HawaiU.to Inspect
