The pnsiuenl!ial campaign of V.sYl is very
aptly illiisjtratnl in the eartoon on the first page
of the Star-Bulletin today. Almost front the

nothing to the discredit of Costa and a great
ileal to his credit. He has been one of the na
tional guard s most efficient officers and as cap
tain of crack Company E he has shown great
ability in handling men. He is not well known,
particularly to the Fourth district, but he is
energetic and ambitious, and those who know
him are invariably for him, which is a pretty
good sign that he is a worthy candidate.
A GOOD RECORD TO STAND ON
If there is any virtue in a candidate's stand
ing on. his record, A. S. Kaleiopu should be re
turned to the senate by the voters of Oahu.
Senator A. F. Judd; whqjtses words of praise
sparingly, served with Kaleiopu in. the senate
two years ago. He says of him:
'My service with Mr. Kaleiopu in the senate
gave me a great deal of respect for his ability
ani conscientious adherence to dutv. He was
noddy's fool. He took nobody's say-so on any
measure but did his own thinking. He was one
of the independent senators who voted .with
full regard for what they believed were the in
terests of all the people. He voted against the
Fairchild land bill, and I believe he voted with
me against that measure because he thought it
was the1 right thing to drt in the interests of all
Hawaii. It wasn't his first experience in the
legislature. He had served the two previous
term in: the house. The voters of thisJdistrict
cant afford to let the opportunity go by to send
back to the senate a native Hawaiian who has
made the record Kaleiopu has made."
That kind of a record, we believe, entitles a
man to" favorable consideration by the voters of
this senatorial district, particularly the Repub
There are a number of young Republicans
running for various offices this year who ought
to be elected. Such men as A. L. Castle and E.
K. Fernandez for the house, Charley Costa for
the' deputy sheriffship, Clarence Cooke for the
senate, Norman Watkins and William William
son, Fourth district candidates, for the house,
Edwin H. Paris and Charlev Arnold for the
board of supervisors, are youngsters, compara
tively young in politics and most of them in
years, and will bring vigor and intelligence to
public work. J. B. Enos, about whom little has
been heard in this campaign, should be a good
supervisor. He possesses solid qualities of eiti-j
xenship and will have the point of view that
guarantees representation for the element -of
population miscalled the middle classes. These
mentioned are among a long list of good men.

ELECTION RETURNS AT LIBERTY
Col. Sam Parker deserves rfar more serious
consideration than Fern. Col. Parker would
add a dignity to the office of mayor that is ut
terly lacking now, and a well-known American
speaker once said that a mayors' chief duty is
to wear a frock coat several times a year and
shake hands freely. Joking aside, the pictur
esque colonel would have sound advice from a
number of prominent Republicans on public
