Adopted at Hilo. Convention
Thursday, September 1, 1904
Following is the platform ailopt
. ed by the Republican convention
at Hilo last week.
The Republican party of . the
Territory of Hawaii, in convention
assembled, hereby declares its al
legience to the principles and trad
itions of the Republican party of
the nation, and to its policies as
outlined in its platform, adopted
at Chicago, in June, 1904.
We heartily endorse the wise
and patriotic administration of
President Roosevelt, and rejoice
that he has so successfully carried
out the policies of his lamented
predecessor, William McKinley.
We endorse the nomination of
President Roosevelt and Senator
Fairbanks for President and Vice
President respectively, and we
pledge ourselves to further show
our approval by electing to Con.
gres- the nominee of our party in
We heartily endorse the success
ful administration of Governor
George R. Carter. Since his ap
pointment,he has gained the confi
dence and respect of all classes with
in the Territory. . He has shown
that he relies upon the patriotism
and good judgment of the people
by calling the Legislature for the
re-adjustment of tho finances of the
Territory, Uius placing in the hands
of the people's representatives the
duties and responsibilities for which
they were elected.
We cordially pledge our support
to Delegate Kalanianaole, in his
.endeavors to secure Federal aid for
this Territory, and wo direct the
attention of the voters to the nec
essity of returning him to Congress
in order that he may complete the
work he has planned to accomplish
and has so well begun. IIus exer
tions have resulted : in the taking
over and maintenance of our light
houses by the Federal Government.
He aided in securing appropria
tions for the erection, at Honolulu,
of a Federal quarantine station,
and for the purchase of sites for
national defenses. Among the
measures he introduced into Con
gress were bills providing for Fed
eral building at Honolulu and Ililo,
for harbor improvements, for a rev
enue cutter, and for tho relief of
the occupants of government lands
on the slopes of Punchbowl and to
secure title to their homes.
We have fulfilled the promises we
made two years ago, and we point
to the good work done by our party
. at the la.st regular and special se?.
sions of the Legislature, recalling
the passage of the County Act, of
the Act Reorganizing the Hoard
of Health, of the Act authorizing
the issuance of Territorial bonds,
of the Art providing for the appoint
ment, of a commission to compile
the statutes, of the Act providing
for the employment of citizen labor
on public works and making
eight hours a day's labor on such
work, of thr Act adopting the Hag
of Hawaii as the ling of this Terri
tory, and of many financial and
other important- measures, all of
which tend to the material welfare
of the people of this Territory.
We express our appreciation of
the Republican Congress that
promptly appropriated $ 1 ,M )),()() )
toward the payment of the Fire
The Republican Party stands for
the equality of labor and capital
reiterates the principle established
by the Citizen Labor Law passed
by the Republican Legislature and
so honestly upheld by the Territor
ial Executive, requiring that all
labor on public works shall be per
formed by citizens of the United
We reiterate our adherence to
the principle of decentralization of
power, and demand the immediate
establishment by the Legislature of
county governments throughout
the Territory, and also the passage
of a general municipal government
Act under which cities and towns
may be established. We will se
cure, if necessary, such amend
ments to our Organic Act as may
be required to enable the Legisla
ture to enact such legislation fully
and completely, and upon approved
modern lines. And in this con
nection we point with satisfaction
to the appointment by the Govern
or, pursuant to the resolution of
the Legislature, of a Commission to
draft a new County Act.
We believe in the disposal of
public lands to bona fide settlers
on the most favorable terms, and
will advocate the enactment of a
law which will enable homesteaders
to construct roads to their holdings
and apply the value of their labor
thereon to the purchase price.
.We staunchly support the prin
ciple of the best education for the
youth of the Territory in the pub
lie schools in order that they may
become good citizens and intelli
gent voters, and the party pledges
itself to provide appropriations suf
ficiently liberal to maintain the
schools in the highest efficiency.
Wq have secured liberal appropri
ations for the permanent improve
ment 'of school houses, thus provfd
ing for the proper accommodation
of the scholars. Our constant en
deavor has been to secure capable
educators and to give the people
the best possible educational sys
tem. We express our approval of
a law creating a permanent school
fund to be devoted to school pur
poses only, which shall be a guar
anty of ample moneys to meet the
demands of the broadest and most
advanced educational development.
We advocate continued liberal
appropriations for the mainte
nance of our unfortunate fellow
citizens segregated on Molokai, and
will urged Federal assistance to
ward measures for their relief and
cure. We approve the work of our
Board of Health already initiated
in this behalf.
We advocate the speedy im
provement of our harbors, wharf
age and landing facilities through
out the Territory, and shall earnest
ly strive to secure from the Nation
al Congress the necessary appro
priations for such work.
We urge liberal appropriations
for the erection of needed public
buildings and other necessary pub

lic works and for the improvement
and maintenance of the public
highways throughout the Territory.
We favor the continuance by the
Legislature of a permanent settle
ment upon ex-Queen Liliuokalani.
We oppose all lr; lists and mono
polies and all combinations tend
ing to control supplies and prices.
We contend thai the interests of
this Territory can be best served
by the loyal adherence of our peo
ple to the policies and principles
of the Republican parly, ami so, re
lying on the wisdom and integrity
of the voters of the Territory, we
confidently bespeak their, support
in the approaching election for a
Delegate to Congress and for Sen
ators and Representatives in the
Maui Republicans are to be con
gratulated on the choices made by
their delegates in convention as
sembled at Lahama the early part
of the week. Two more popular
men than Hon. S. E. Kahuna and
Attorney A. X. llayselden w.ould
have been hard.to find. ' The Hon.
Kalama is one of Maui's members
to the House, and during the ses
sions in which he participated he
did his best to secure good legisla
tion and -solid comforts in the
shape of large appropriations for
Maui. He made a record then
which is hard to beat.
Mr. llayselden is a kamaaina to
Maui-itcs, and although this is the
first time he is seeking legislative
honors, we have no doubt that
when he gets to the Senate he will
keep up to the high standard made
by Maui Republican members in
Of our House candidates two are
old war horses Hon. W. P. Haia
and Hon. Philip Pali. They can
well go before the public and ask
for their support again, for they ful
filled what they pionfised they peo
ple of Maui during their former
campaign. The "sf lid five" of Maui
in the House the past sessions se
cured for the Islard many conces
sions and the A.aui public were
benefited by their efforts. Honor
able Haia and Pa'.i were members
of the "solid five." ,
The other four men on the rep
resentative ticket, Messrs Moses
K. Nakuina, W. J. Coelho, George
Copp and John Kalino are seeking
political honors for the first time,
but they are by no means malihinis
to us. They are active party work
ers in their respective precincts
and as such should get our united
Mr. Moses" K. Kakuina has been
identified with the Republican
party for a good many years back,
first in Honolulu and lately in Mo
lokai. His incessant labors in
Molokai on behalf of the Repub
lican party has strengthened us all
along the line on that island and
his nomination at Lahaina shows
that his efforts were appreciated.
Mr. W. J. Coelho is a Maui boy
who after wandering away from us
finds out that after all "there is no
place like home." He is a young
man of ability, a good English and
Hawaiian scholar. lie was the in
terpreter in the House of Represen
tatives during the last Legislature
and did his work so well that he
established a reputation as a first
class interpreter. During his brief
stay in Waiiuku, ho has been
prominently identified with many
movements for the improvement of
the town, being one of the moving
pirits of the Improvement Club,
Volunteer Five Company and the
(ith. Piiciin-t. He has been
most active in recorgani.ing the
sul.-pivcinet clubs at Kahakuloa,
Waihee and Waikapu, and his ef
fort should be crowned with success.
Mr. Geo. Copp is one of Kula's
small fanners one of the "back
bone" of. the country. Deis an-
other strong party worker, often rep.
resenting his district in conven
tions and also in the District Com
mittee. As a committeeman, his
vote was always given for measures
which advance the party's interests.
He is now tax assessor and collec
tor of Makawao which position he
will resign so that he may serve
his party in another capacity.
Rev. Jno. Kalino another active
worker in the Republican ranks has
been rewarded with being nominat
ed for the House. He worked un
ceasingly for the success of the party
two year ago, being one of the spell
binders who stumped Maui for the
Republican party. He came out
also during the County Campaign
to help his party with his oratorical
powers. He is a refined, magnetic,
Hawaiian orator, and it is well
worth while to hear him.
With Delegate Jonah, Kuhio,
Kalanianaole, whose efforts in Ha
waii's behalf are well known to
head the Republican ticket, Maui
should be true to its motto "O Maui
no ka oi" and send tho best men,
the Maui Republican ticket, to

Lahaina was in holiday attire
on las? Wednesday afternoon and
evening, the occasion being tho ar
rival of Governor Geo. R. Carter.
The Kinau was a little late in com

enthusiasm of the crowd. As she
came gliding into the anchorage, a
salute of 21 guns was fired in honor
of the Governor. Afterward bed

It seemed like the good old days
to see the crowd surging to and fro

made a good impression on the
crowd for they cheered him again

at Manager Barkhausen's where he
