ate Kuhio in seeking io j -v i 1 1 the confirma
tion of (iovernor rival's appoint ment. need not
1k taken loo liiciaily.
v Mr. Ivininy is a Democrat anl his aressivc
temperament anl outspoken characteristics are
iiH'h that tin mere fart of his presence in Wash
lnNm means that he is mostly decidedly there

i;pjH8U! I"ijh as a Democrat, just as In is
iv irkiiii: for Mr. !. .1. Waller as a Democrat.
' The protect filed hy Mr. Kinney prohaldy has

down in Iuh heart is liot-omHwrf to I'rear. The
lMVt ihnl the jrovenior's supporters, or anyone
vteo, Jias rxjMfteo! of the de!ej;ati in this direc
tion is that he would kop hands off the jrovern-
orsliip appointment. On the night lieforc elec

to tand bvTtlu decision of Mr. Fisher. Whati
thf public liad vwrr rightMo xpvt of Kuhio
wax that JmvwouM at least assume a neutral at

When You Ride Out To VaihiKi
Take a glance to you- left, over the hills to the higher ele
vations of Kaimuki. Everybody in Honolulu will admit that
high ground is a favonts type of property for residential
purposes. All the "hijher rpots" in and around Honolulu
are today commanding the highest prices and in the years
to come their values w'll enhance much more rapidly than
properties on the lowr levels. Ninety-five per cent of the
residence property of Honolulu does not command a moun
tain or ocean view in'act. rrost of them are limited to the
house across the street.
We have in the New Ocean View Tract a few. desirable
