At 1 o'clock this afternoon Chairman Robert W. Shingle of the
Republican territorial central committee issued a forecast claiming
the reelection of Delegate Kuhio by 4505 votes, 863 more than hia
overwhelming majority over L. L. McCandless, Democrat, in 1910. In
his statement today Chairman Shingle says:
"Out of a total registered vote on all the islands aggregating
15,098, 1 hate calculated that approximately 14,000 votes will be cast.
'Taking this basis of votes polled, I estimate the following vote
tomorrow on the delegateship:

Oahu'.. ;-. '
Kauai . '. , .
"The above estimate is based on wirelesses received today from
the other Islands and froin a careful canvass of the situation on

f L.L. McCandless this morning declined 'to forecast the vote. Ho
did not even claim his own victory. When asked by the Star-Bolje-tin
fore a forecast, he said:
. could not possibly make any forecast of the territorial vote
for delegate, It Is impossible to estimate what effect the false re

Fern Claim Honolulu W:ll
According to statements made to a
! Star-Bulletin reporter by leading
Democrats this morning, that party is
going into the battle at the polls to
morrow with high hopes of an over
whelming victory, practically all along
I the line on this island, and with good
I expectations of winning the congres
sional election by a Bmall margin in
the territory. Herewith are some ex
pressions: C. J. McCarthi'. candidate for coun-
; ty treasurer and manager of Demo
cratic headquarters Every thing
looks like a landslide for us. Every
body in the Democratic party is work
ing to win. The small differences over
individual candidates are disappear
ing. Men who had been among the
anti-Jarrett faction are coming in to
say that they are for Jarrett now.
We are positive of two senators, but
do not know which two. We are sure
of two and possibly all three.
B. G. Riventurgh, chairman coanty
committee; We have no particular
forecast to give out. Since Shingle
opened up with wireless statements
that McCandless had withdrawn as
candidate for delegate, it is hard to
say what mischief such false reports
will make. However, Link is trying
! hard to counteract the damage. All
that seems probable is that McCand
less will carry Kauai by a very small
majority, will break even with the
Prince on Hawaii and Maui, and we
are figuring will carry Oahu. which
will give him the election by a small
majority. If he,. loses, it will be on a
close margin. We figure that our
senators are safe. Our representa
tives in the fifth are reasonably safe,
and we expect to break in on the
fourth with at least three.
Mayor Fern Une. All right. The
Democrats will elect the mayor and
all seven supervisors all on the coun
ty ticket from top to bottom. Pu;
that down for me. Link McCandless
will beat Cupid. Ask Shingle if Prince
Cupid bought him for $500. as he says
