W. O. SMITH There has been it
good deal about having elections every
year. George Carter when governor
wanted annual legislatures. I was op
posed to the idea then; but I notice
that the present campaign is accom

roads. Now, if elections mean lots of
new and . better roads, let us have
more of them.
R. W. SHINGLE, chairman Repub

trust that the secretary of the Terri
tory will see his way clear to have
the name of J. K. Hihio placed on the
official ballot as a candidate for Sen
ator from Maui. The Republican
party wants to take no advantage of
whatever technicalities may have
arisen, and It would seem as if noth
ing but a technicality could prevent
the electors of Maui from being given
an opportunity to vote for whomever
they desire. I firmly believe that,
both Republican candidates for sen
ator from Maui will be elected, but
we want the people to have a fair op
portunity to express their choice."
