There was an absence of bustle at
Democratic headquarters in the
Walty building, In the early hours of
the polling, which merely betokened
that the hustlers were out on the fir
ing line. Now and again strains of
soft harmonies floated through the
corridor, from a lei-bedecked female
glee club stationed at the top of the
tairs. It was expected that the
tuneful body would be given a round
of the polls about midday, to cheer
the workers and lure votes to the
cau.e with guitar and voice. This
depended on there being an automo
bile to spare at that time.

county committee, was at headquar

nothing untoward had occurred. Dem

There was very little stir around
this polling place, corner Nuuanu and
Bates streets, the registration being
small and confined largely to the resi

strong in the early morning, and then
fell off toward the noon hour. It Is
expected that there will be some late
votes in just before the polls close.
The total registration in the tenth
of the fourth is 156, and of this num
ber 79 had castithelr ballots at 11:30,
and 91 at 12:20. What electioneering
was being done around the polls' seem

badges being more in evidence than
those of Republican workers.
