to Register. the Board of Registration will have closed its
sessions, and all those who have failed to register will not be ab e
to vote on the Gth of November next.
It is the duty of every citizen to register andthus be able to per
form that inalienable right which is granted him by the Constitu
tion of the United States.
The failure of every good citizen to register means not only the
loss of his right to vote but also means the loss of one more vote
for good government. Every vote counts so do not fr.il to register
on or before the 9th of October.
Intervention The intervention in Cuba of the United Slates
in Cubii. will not prove a surprise to many as the treaty
existing between the two governments allow such a course by the
Many persons throughout the islands fo ir the trouble there was
instigate by those who have great financial interests at stake and
will leave no stone unturned until they succeed in having the is
land of Cuba annexed to the Union.
We believe President Roosevelt will not go hastily into the an
nexation scheme and it is just as well for the Territory of Hawaii
that he will not and yet annexation of Cuba to the Union will even
tually come though it may be many years before that event takes
The purpose of the present government is to secure peace and
establish an orderly government. If this object is kept, clearly in
mind and selfish reasons do not predominate it will be many years
before annexation is consummated. Annexation of Cuba would
prove a serious blow to the Territory of Hawaii and the beet
growers of the United States and while it would doubtless he a
great benefit to Cuba her ignorant masses would not form a de
sirable class of citizens.
Let us hope that annexation of Cuba is a thing of the very dis
The Race The stand taken byourdelegate Kalanianaole against
Issue. the race issue, as raised by the Homo Rulers,
meets with the heartiest support of all fairroinded people. It
tends to show that the delegate has had to answer some very per
tinent questions in Washington as regards the feeling of the native
Hawaiians toward the white element in tho Territory.
He earnestly asks the natives to abandon the party that claims
to be for the natives only and to join either the Republican or Do
mocratic parties. It would assist the delegate a lot to be able to
say on his return to Washington that the natives and the whites
are working peacefully together.
It would not only benefit him but also the natives for they would
tnen be looked upon as lair ana impartial men tor the various
Federal and Territorial ollices. The men in Congress can not and
will not trust a people that is prejudiced against the whites, and
while there exists that anti-haole feeling among the Hawaiians they
never will have the respect of the men in power in Washington.
It is an undeniable fact that the Home Rulers have drawn the
race line. The delegates to the Home Rule convention in Honolulu
were one and all clamoring that the Home Rule party was the
party of the natives, for the natives and by the natives. Their
candidates all over make the same remarks, although their plat
form professes not to favor the race issue.
This anti-haole spirt was clearly shown by Kalua, the Homo Rule
candidate for sheriff who recently followed tho board of Regis
tration for the avowed purpose of challenging white voters, especi
He succeeded in throwing out temporarily four men who subse
quently were registered. His discrimination against this class
men has turned them against him and it is safe to say that he wil
not get a Portuguese vote but one and all they will vote against
any one who fosters race prejudice where we all have one common
The days of race prejudice are past and he who would win in poli
tics must work for the good of all citizens regardless of race or

that the Territory has paid n stiff
price for the son.e.
The matter of fetying a cement
sidewalk on Vineyard Street was
taken up on Wednesday morning.
large body of representative
citizens appeared before the Hoard
to urge the acceptance of the pro
position of the property holders to
pay for one half of the cost of same.
This is on improvement that the
citizens of Wailuku are very anxi
ous to have dune. The board took
the matter under advisement nnd
later accepted the proposition and
ordered the grade surveyed.
It will probably be some months
before the work can be completed
for the reason that the necessary
rock crushing plants have not ye
arrived fcr which reason the side
walks already under construction
have progressed much slower than
was at first expected.

How The Mongolia Was Floated.
Captain Porter, of the Mongolia,
when asked about the conduct of the
Japanese training ship Anegawa at
Midway and her leaving the passen
ger steamer to her fate, dec-lines to
say anything. He says that he is in
a position which precludes his making
any remarks winch might tie dero
gatory to the Japanese, and asks that
he be excused from laying anything
on the subject.
He does say, however, that the
Japanese vessel did not render any
assistance and that she went olT and
lei t the Mongolia on the reef. He
also states that he offered to supply
the Anegawa with coal so that she
could t enia i a.
Concerning the manner in which
the Mongolia ranashoie and the way
in which she was (touted, Captain
Porter in. kes un interesting state
ment. ''We made Midway light," he said,
"at 8:56 Saturday evening. The ship
was stopped and blue lights sent up.
They were answered by flashes from
the shore as if a boat were coming
off. We were going slow, but couldn't
see the reef. Tlie vessel went unround
at 10.27. At once wo tried to back,
but I found I hut the vessel was mak
ing water in number 3 hold. I order
td the cargo carried from forward
ift, in hope of lightening her hy li e
bow sufficiently st that slie would
come oil, but this did nut have the
des'ii cd result. No cargo was jettis
oned until ttie next dny, when we
threw over about (100 tons.
"When daylight came, t ran out a
big bow anchor with 140 fathoms c-f
7-inch steel wire mid put on a heavy
strain. On Tuesday morning a heavy
swell came in and the wire parted. I
had three anchors out over the st'n
all the time, When the wire broke I
got out another, ar.d also a heavy Ma
nila rope. Those held until Thursday.
On Friday I ivai tnk'ng a big bow
anchor off h-t ween 1 wo boats, cata
inarau style. In heaving in ttie hawser
so as to it coil and shakle to the bow
anchor, the bight of the hawser got
caught under a shelving piece of cora1,
1 put a heavy strain on that with luff
and luff. Then I worked the port
encine fell intern until the stern
swung in the 'end of the hawser
took anoiher pull on the steel wire
hawsei and made fast solid to the
mooring bits aft. Ti en I went for
ward, stopped the port engin? and
put full speed astern on the starboard
engine. When the ship's head came
around to the same point that she
went ashore on, I threw her wide
oueti full speed u.i'e'n both engines,
nnd at 8:20 u. u she came off, drag
ging her bow chains.
"That's the way we got off,", said
Captain Porter, "and mighty glad I
am to be here. 1 wouldnt care to go
through the same experience again
for more millions than the Mongolia
"I can't, say enough in praise of the
Chinese sailors on t.ie Mongolia. They
worked r.ight and day. And all of
officers have done splendid work.
"Captain Khtgarrd was aboard.
He stayed ty me and was of the great
est assistance. He'is a bright fellow
and a splendid man."
