LIQUOR LaVNOT READY.
C. G; Ballentyne, who reported
for' the legislatjve committee, -ex
plained that the' liquor bil draft was
not yet ready,- being now in ' the
bands of, the typewriter. This would
be ready for consideration next
week.. ' He then presented the draft
of the primar.y law, which had bfcen
prepared by Chairman Robertson,
modeled (after the Wisconsin law.
DIRECT PRIMARY LAY?.
This proposed bill was explained
by Mr. Robur'tsorPus one to place tho
nouiinalion of candidates for the va
rious elective offices In tho hands' of
tho voters directly .and ta.do away
with the nominating conventions. As
outlined in the .submitted draft It
was open to amendment,
The draft bill contains tlie follow.
ing points: j. '

an electivo office to be placed. In no

SECRECY OF THE BALLOT.
One of the changes proposed by
chairman Robertson in the bill of,
which the above is a brief outline is
to have each elector declare his party
allegiance and bo given only thntbal
Iqt. This would give" the County
Clerk a list of the members of ,eaoh
party, desirable thing in the opinion
o Mr. Robertson.' ' ,x
The Suggestion brought Judge
Archie Mahaulu to his fec,t. . Such a
filing, .ho declared, would destroy
4he secrecy of tho ballot. What was
to becomo of the men who wanted to
vote a split, ticket. ' A voter' would
surrender his indqpendonco under,
isuch a law, which, had it been in
effect, would have elected Brown as
Sheriff, and then where would Iaukea
have come in?
Tho judge was greatly .excited and
it took the combined .eloquence pf
Farrington, Ballentyne and W. O".
Smith to head him. off. The matter
.was finally iald over forf a week, dur
ing .which time it , Is expected that
.tlje public would be 'heard from in
WATERWORKS PLANK-A MIS-
A - TAKE.
. In -the .opinion of Mr. ;Ballentyno
.the platform committee at Wailuku
erred in placing the plank.regr rding
the. transferring of the waterworks
system to the county. A,t tlie pre
"stint time the Oahu systom was. con
ducted at. a oss of $6000 month and
an additional $4000 a month would be
needeu to carry on the necessary,
construction and upkeep of .the sys
tern, in view of the loss or revenue
to tie county in the .matter of income
tax he thought that the county was
not prepared to accept the burden,
especially as the people how receiv
ed all the benefits they could receive,-
oven If thoy d"l own the system. In
placing tho plank in the. party plat
form and' pledging the. party candi
dates to carry it out, he thought that'
.the convention did not know the ex-
adt state of affairs.
Mr. Farrington said that the plank
.1 I -J-.a f j 1 ' 1 .
nuu ueun pui in 10 ir.aKe a test of the
? i m ... . 1
pqwproi ice xerriiory to mm over
tbi tho counties property, tho title of
which was now vested in the Federal
government. He thought the sooner
itho test was made the better.
' HUGHES IN HONOR BOUND.
. Representative John Hughes said
that the fact that the waterworks
were now run at a loss was the
,stongest argument why they should
be turned over to tho county. He
thought that, better management
would show better results. He had
studied the question and 'tliought
.that tho transfer' would be ior the
benefit of all concerned.
' "I was elected' on that' platform
and pledged my word of honor to
carry out every plank in it to the
best of my. ability. I feel myself in
hornor bound to do it." -
This precipitated another discus
sion, tho words of Hughes as quoted
at the beginning of this 'article, in
troduciug the highMift pump and a
discussion of the virtues of if reservoir
systems Eventually tho matter was
laid over to bo threshed out to a con-
l a . ...

Jupnn Must Fight Riisnia Again.
'Japan feels that she will some day
hayc to whip Russia 'again," ' said
Captain E. V. Lynam or tho U. S.
transport Thomas last week. He
'was discussing the rurnorsof war be
tween the United States and Japan
and, ainco jt is 'his con-iction that.
Japan and tf. United States will not
fight over the present San Francisco
difficulty, the suggestion cdmes thai
the cause, of Japan's great, war pre
parations is this' feeling that "Russia
will not forget the b.eatiug she re
ceived in the Orient and that she will
strike for her old prestige when pre
pared. For this reason Japan is
exorting every effort to be ready if
possible, to ropeat her victory.
"The talk of Vlapan declaring war
on the United S"tates because of this
San Francisco trouble,!' said Captain
ljynam "is utterly absurd, to mj
mind. Japan is not yet prepare: for
war and, even if she were, she' has
sense enough to know that she could
never win out against tho United
estates; America has resources
enough to fight Japan, or any other
nation, for fifty years, if necessary,
''Japan might take the Philippines,
but she could ncvei hold them. She
might even take the Hawaiian Is
lands, but she could not hold them
for any appreciable time. If slic
could land an array in the States she
could never get it out' again.
"If Japan ever engaged in war
withythe United States, America
would' administer a beating from
which Japan would uover recover and
the Japanese know it." Star.
