DEMOCRATS EXPECT TO WIN BOTH HOUSE
L Mainland election result will he watched to:
morrow night with almost as much interest, in
the senators and representatives in the lower
house elected a :in the presidential contest.
While there isa general belief-that Democracy
i quite likely to hold it own or strengthen it
self in the house, the senate is in much doubt
.and will be until the votes arc counted.
. The interposition of the. Bull 3Ioose party has
set nil prcedehts awir, and few indeed ate the
political expert willing to their reputation
' on a definite forecast. It niay be said, however,
that wiih the Kepublican party divided against
itself, there certainly should lw an accession of
Democratic strength all along the line, irrespect
lve'of Wilson's cliarices'for the-Tpresidency. This
his bein 'widely hailed as a Democratic year-y
and 'the, hungry faithful, their -apietite only
whetied'l what the last house was able to do
for tliem 'are gathering in anticipation of a niore
substantial feast should loth houses be theirs.
EULL HOUSE CANDIDATES IN THE STATES
. The-Ilull Moose party ha one great source
of strength in tomorrow h election, and that is
the heads of the state Jictets. Many of the Pro
ressive candidates for governor are men of the
very highest type, anil it fs remarkable how lit
tle the professional politicians, even the veteran
politicians, are represented on the Bull Moose
. . Beginning with Oscar S. Straus in New York,
many good men may lx mentioned. Among them
are Winston Churchill, the militant author of
. Xew Hampshire, foe of railroad corruption; Ar
thur CaprKr, editor, of the Tojeka Daily Capital,
of Topeka, Kansas; Charles S; Bird, a manu
factijrer of . East Walpole,5 Masaf luisetts; Judge
".Vlbert D. Norton i, of the Tippeals court of St.
Ix)U is, Missouri. North Dakota has put forward
' Dr. C. C. Cregan, president of Vargo college and
ii; noted eilucator. (5or. Aldrich of Nebraska is
up for reelwtion on the, Progressive ticket, as is
TcGovern of Wisconsin, a Boosevelt leader in
the first Chicago convention. In Washington
there is running a j)ictunsque character by the
name of "Bob" Hodge, ix-nniir, ex-jnigilist,
' later a sheriff of conspicuous force if somewhat
rough-an(i-ifldy methods; Albert J. Beveridge,
the eloquent- Hoosier, is Indiana's choice; Ohio
has put forward a wealthy automobile manufac
turer, Arthur L. (larfoiil, from the north of the
state, but he, like Clifford Parks, the Denver
banker nominated in Colorado, is not greatly
feared by the older parties.
Few of these men have had much previous experience-
in Mlitics, but. they have been warmed
np i.v Hoosevelt flame and are as likely to be
'tod governors as anyone else.
EDISON AND SUFFRAGE
Thomas A. IMison, that man of eminently
practical idtas. has dlared himself for wom
an's suffrage, and the Kdisonian theory of suf
frage is expressnl in an interview that Will

is now being widely circulated as campaign lit

EBEN P. LOW
Joe Fern, as mayor, on Saturday issued a
prclamation setting aside Sunday as "Tubercu
losis Day', and public-spirited men and w.unen
gathered in massmeeting to discuss remedial
measures for the terrible white plague. Joe
Fern, as candidate for reelection on the Demo
cratic ticket, on Sunday went among the Ila
waiians of the Fifth district spreading the cruel
campaign canard that the haole Republicans
were talking of a plan to get the Hawaiian?, into
hospitals and destroy them. That is the kind
of a man and a mavor arfd a candidate that Fern
is. - That is the kind of absurd, of dangerous, of
inflammatory story he is spreading. If ever
there was a call for intelligent men to rise up
and drive -Fern from office, it is now.
If any further proof were needed to show that
C. ti. Bartlett, manager of Honolulu brewery,
is carrying his businessjnto politics, that proof
is furnished, in the signed communication pub
lished on this page. Bartlett throughout, the
campaign 'has asserted in his public speeches that
his business has and will have nothing to do with
his candidacy or his administration of office
should he be elected. Yet Bartlett used his in
fluence, against Sam Johnson because Johnson
was reported to have advocated prohibition in
the Puna district. Let the voters make no mis
take, Bartlett's business cannot' be kept out of
politics if he gets in.
Says the Hilo Tribune:
The feature of this campaign which has been the
most 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 of '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
it 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.
Bourne is now running on an Independent tick
et, w hile the Bull Moose party has put up Clark.
TO THE TO TNG VOTEK.
Editor Honolulu Star-Bulletin,
Sir: With your permission I am
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
a3 well rfs 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 statting right, and right here is
where that "eternal vigilance" comes
in to keep it right.
Did you ever see a man building a
picket fence? He starts right by
having everything plumb and square,
but it wont stay that way long if he
doesn't get oft and take a look at it
every once in a while. It will gt 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
oi twenty-one years should be capable
of thinking for himself, so I am not
going to ask you to ybftf'fbr this man
or to down that man',' or to "knife"
this one and boost for the other one.
But I will tell you some history of a
partyv the writing of "which 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
starving for them. That party swept
American commerce from , the 6eas
with armed privateers. That party
fired on Fort Sumter and the Ameri
can flag. Just let me repeat that.
There is a party asking for your vote
tomorrow, yonng 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 bard
to find. What are you going to do aft
er you find it? It's 'up to you.
