FIVE GOOD REASONS WHY

Tli! Republican Party is the
pnrly that controls the Govern

Undoubtedly will continue to con

18(50, the Presidents of the United
Stnu-s have been Republicans, with
the exception of Cleveland, a De
mocrat, who held office two Presi
dential terms; that is for 8 years.
Preident Roosevelt has been nom
inated again by the Republican
Pari v. and will surelv be elected,

Tim President of the United

The Home Rule Party passed a
County Bill in 1901, that was so full
of mistakes, that the Governor would
not fciyn it.
The Republican Party passed a
County Bill in 1903 that was a jjood
Bill, and was 6igned by the Governor,
but unfortunately the Supremo Court
declared it unconstitutional.
It is a difficult thing to frame a
County Bill, which is necessarily a
verv long- Bill, and full of all kinds of
provisions pertaining to the govern

way conflict with the Organic Act,

The Republican Party la the United
Staies have always been friendly dis
posed towards the Hawaiian people.
The people from the United States,
who have established Churches and
School in the country, and have
spent their lives herein up lifting the
people, and have brought the people
here under a system of law and order,
and gave them a civilized Govern

Territory of Hawaii the Organic
Act, that gives the people much
broader privileges, and much more
power with the ballot, tnan they had
under the Monarchy.
On the olhe1' hand the Democratic
Party have but little use for the Ha
waiian people, as they liavo stated in
the United States Congress, in the
Democratic Conventions in the United
States, and on several other occa

He said he was arcpui lican. The
republican party favored a home

people may have homes of their

better education for' our children,
that they may know how to make
a living, and become independent
of the rich eople.
Ho answered some of the charges
made against the republican party,
which was organized in Honolulu
May 2nd 1900. You are told the
republican party brought about an
nexation, now annexation was
brought about in July 1K'.I8, twd
years before the republican party
on Hawaii was organized, through
resolution of Newlands a democrat.

you ask him why he wanted a law
to permit the otlicial use of the Ha
waiian language, which our op
ponents arc telling you is intended
for the purpose of abiliddiu.' the
Hawaiian language. In the hist

brought in a resolution asking Con
gress to allow the Hawaiian lan
guage to be used oflieially. The
legislature payed it, and. Mint for

lie found that of the tax prayer?
W per cent paid their taxes and ten
per cent did not, and th.atthiv; who
did not pay much taxes did the
most grumbling about publje im
provements, lie asked the repub
cans to work and vote straight
for the entire ticket from delegate,
senators to the representees. Do
not say one thing and do another
as he had heard the opposition was
doing, that is all wrong.
In the scs.don of 11)01 only
twenty-two bills became law among
them the favorite lady dog bill.
He referred briefly to some per
sons who weredischa rged from work
the day previously for attending a
political meeting held by ,tfce op
position and asked the oncers of
the jepubliciw precinct, club to look
into the matter and sec that no in
nocent person had suffered thereby.
W, P. Paia said that he was not a
si ranker but a ciimlidute who hud
i ( ceivetl honor at your lmt.ds pre
viously. He found the Home Rulers!
had been making misrepresentations'
about us tluj. we were being dragged
about by the nose by suar planters.

s onu reason why we are anxious to
to establish industrial schools. When
I uns in the legislature I heard that
thu Hoard of Education wanted to
abolish Lu.Uahialuua and I felt that in
doing so they would be putting out
the lignt wluch- liad benefitted our
people m the past. We then worked
in the legislature to put new life into;
the school, passed appropriations
needed for new school buildings. Was
that for. the sugar planters. We

Hon. S. Kalamu spoke next. Iam
before you as a candidate lor the se
nate. I tried to decline the honor

nominating me that I finally consist-
cd to be your candidate. There are
force p ilitical parlies in the field
and it is fir you to sehel suitable

ture and helped to pass many laws.
In regard to the Bill introduced by
our Delegate Kuhio iu Congress con
cerning the ollieial use of the Hawa
iian lan.vaga which is being twisted
aiound by our opponents to mean a
law to abrv'ish the use of the Hawa
iian language, I want to s ic that it
wns bro.virht about throogji a resolu
tion itroduceci by P.ulaa in the hist
Jegisldturc skhig Congress to ailow
tlii; use of the Hawaiian language iu
tho legislature anf Courls of the
territory. The prince on present
ing it was asked to bring in a bdl on
the subject with a time limit. He
tried to have the limit at 50 yeais
but the was so much opposition from
influetiliid r.ien that it was finally
made 10 years.
Kumalae who is making these false
charges was in the last legislature
and at first, he being t ion a repub
lican, we followed his lead as he had
been in the legislature before. LatC,r
we gradually found out that he wjs
a bad man. In putting through the
Chinese Claim bill Kumulae was paid
for his work, and another bill he tried
to put thro' was the Pauoa wulex
bill tor $230,000.00 which passed
both houses and was thrown oy,t ,911
the ground Jhat in creating county
government Oa.hu County would .dejil
with subject of local interest to Ho
nolulu only. Senator Brown of HAlo
and' Fernandez of Hamakya were
forced to leave the Home Rule party
on account of Kutn.ulaeV doings. If
the Pauoa bill had become a law
Kumala would have been paid hanci-j
soineiy for it.
The question before you tonight is
this, Who will you vote for? If you
want Home Rulers vjto for their en
tire ticket, if you wa,nt Republicans
vole for their entire tic.kct. J. tlia,nk
you all foryour kind attention.
Philip Pali said that although a
good sized man he was not soft and
quite willing to both fpgbtand work.
I want to answer some of the charges
made by our oppr nor..ts by telling
you of what helped to d j ,f or my dis
trict. I helped get ai .appropria
tion of .$10,000 for the roads from
Kahaktaoa to Waihec,' Road from Ho
nokohau to Honolua $7,000 to enable
carriages to go that way and enable
you lo ako out what you produce.
There was also a bill brought in
from the senate to forbid the use of
tish nets of themakahi king (one fin

killed it for your benefit as well as
mine. -Ididn& want to run for the
legislature as there is nothing iu it

work to support m.y family. But
