Palace Square Holds Great

Five thousand people at a conserve
tive count crowded the Palace Square
i grounds last night for the closing rally
j.:i the Republican campaign, stayec
through intermittent showers until
warm applause. However, the applaute
wa not so satisfactory to the cam
paign managers as the deep and re
spectful attention accorded to those
who spoke. -
The Democratic meeting at Aala
Park was larger in point of numbers
during the early evening, but the nuav
of oien- "cordingjo an estl-
mate made, ; was not a& great as the
number that attended the Republican
rally, while the Aala park meeting was
noisy and half those , present were
occupied in exchanging heated politi
cal . views among themselves than in
listening to the those on the platform.
Palace 'Square "was. all the blaze of

':,. The Delegate fight on this island is
bound to give Kuhio a big majority.
Two years ago the' vote, was: Kuhio,
1787; . McCand!fes's?762;' Notley,446.
Ills year it is doubtful if Notley poils
over 150 while there are ..about 250
more votes to be cast ' From a very
conservative estimate It -looks, as
though there would be about 3075.
I votes cast which, with Notley's 150
eliminated.. will probably be divided as
follows: McCandlesa, i 1150; " Kuhio,
1930. This would give Knhlo 780 maj

and' the chinces are good that he will
come much eloserto 1000 majority
than to the 780 mentioned. ;

reported '; as" declaring that: the com
pany can hardly see its way clear in
spending 'some fourteen "million f doN

stated: '-;' y-pyv-'yi :;; : -. :
"Of course the' drastic law" passed
by Congress hits 4.he company's ambi
tious plans1 a' ard blow andr in my
opinion; also dea!i the 'best interests
of the coast T and: the American mer
chant ' marine a bad knock.! The Pa
cific Mail had ; obtained r bids - from
American : shipyards for .- four big
steamers to cost in the aggregate $12,
000,000. It "also intended - to'-." spend
between $1,500,000- and $2,000,000 on
the Korea, Siberia; Mongolia and Man
churia, its four crack trans-Pacific
liners, making certain ' changes in
view of their using the canal. It was
aimed to use these steamers in a fine
New York, San IjYanclsco and Orient
service. " All . these ; plan3 have been
cancelled. ' X yv'-;K ': V'.; -
"Owners of American shipyards tell
me - no concern in 'the; country,- save
the Pacific Mail, as asked them , - to
build: new j Bhlps for use through the
canal. - Other countries .aire preparing
ships for the. canal jbut the United
States is not, and it has prevented; the
one cbmpaiay; that ,wi3hed ; to do so.
But. the deed is done 'and 'that ends

; Schwerin says it: must be borne in
mind thaf the law has nothing to do
atfd energetfe enough to want to spend
about $14,000,000 from dolng so by de
