; fcafs the Hilo Tribune:
The feature of this campaign which lias been the
iuost noticeable has been Its, comparative decency.
Compared with the ordinary election orgy, when
drunkenness and kindred nuisances are given more
or less license, the present campaign has been an
exceedingly quiet one. We see no drunken bums
lurching in and out ol saloons, the streets are not
blocked by filthy political runners and similar touts
"earning" easy money through loud-mouthed and
generally profane argument. Thus it has been dem
onstrated that the lack of a campaign fund promotes
decency in the campaign. Under the circumstances
i should be nothing much short of an offense to
contribute to such a fund either now or in the future.
A senatorial election of more than ordinary
interest takes place in Oregon tomorrow. Sen
ator Jonathan Bourne, one of the leaders of the
little group of progressives in the upper house
of Congress, stayed in Washington during the
primary campaign and was not renominated by
the Republican party, which put up Ben Selling.

TO THE TOrXG VOTER.
Editor Honolulu Star-Bulletin,
Sir: With your permission I
going to have just one more say be
fore the election tomorrow, and this
"say" will be, as usual, to the young
men who will cast their first vote.
Young man, eternal vigilance is the
price of keeping the dinner pail full j
as well a3 of liberty. The first thing
to do is to start right in this new life
that you will be introduced to at sun
rise tomorrow morning, and it is not
all in starting right, and right here is
where that "eternal vigilance'' comes
in to keep it right.
Did you ever see & man building a
picket fence? He starts right by
hiring everything plumb and square,
but it won't stay that way long jf he
doesn't get off and take a look at it
every once in a while. It will get to
running one way or the other without
that "eternal vigilance". Same way
with voting, young man. Start right
and after you have started right keep
a weather eye on the whole business
or it will get to running down-hill.
Every man who arrives at the age
of twenty-one years should be capable
of thinking for himself, so I am not
going to ask you to vote'for this man
or to down, that mail; or to "knife"
this one and boost for the other one.
But I will tell you some history of a
party, the writing of winch took a
great deal more blood than ink, and
you yourself, but a few years ago,
read it while you were attending the
public schools of this territory. That
same party is today asking you for
your vote to place it in power. That
same party brought on a cruel civil
war which lasted four long years.
That party sold men, women and chil
dren as slaves. That party made
thousands of widows and orphans.
That party suppressed the issue of
greenbacks when this government was
starring for them. That party swept
American commerce from the seas
with armed privateers. That party
fired on. Fort, Sumter and the Ameri
can flag. fust,? let "me repeat that.
There is a party asking for your vote
tomorrow, young man, that fired on
an American fort 'and "Old Glory",
the grandest flag that ever flew from
a staff. There is a party asking for
your vote, young man, that slandered
James Abraham Garfield and assas
sinated Abraham Lincoln.
Now, young' man," you ought to lo
cate that party, and it won t be hard
to find. What are you going to do aft
er you find it? It'sup to you.
