those industries connected wit li it, were the only ones possible in

In recent years pineapple cultivation lias proven a jjreal success
and has taken second place in the list of exports for the territory

Democrats If the Democrats of Die County are to be judged
in Politics, by those who appear to be at the head of the party
here in Wailuku, the Republicans have but little to fear from that
quarter. It is true that they have some good men in their ranks
and we do not feel inclined to criticise some of those who are active
in the party for we realize that they are honestly seeking to im
prove conditions where they think such ate not what they should
be. It is a very different matter with some of the loaders, how
ever, who are simply working the party for nominations for which
they are no wise the materia of which candidates for oflice should
The Republican party has in its ranks a great majority of those
who believe in the honest administiation of governmental tilTairs
for the greatest benefit of all. The Republican party is free from
race prejudice and is as ready to support a man of one race as an
other as is proven by a study of t hi; election r'jtiitis of the pa.-t
where it is evident that in many Hawaiian precincts a white man
will poll a higher vote than any Hawaiian on the ticket and airain
in another precinct a, Hawaiian may get, a higher voin in a while
precinct than any white'iuan While an overwhelming majority of
Hawaiians are in the employ of evcy brunch of the Territorial
government and the same may be sed of each of the County gov
ernments, and we may add that they draw a great doul unre from
the governments in salaries than do t he w hite men. t here has ne ver
been the slightest disposition on the part of I lie Anile to object to
this condition but they believe in assisting the Hawaiians as far as
is possible consistent with good government for all.
It is however, next to impossible for any 4political parly to no
minate a complete set of ollicers without putting up some one who
is not just what he should be.
If the Democrats or any other conservative parly should work
as conscientiously for the benefit of the people as the Republicans
do it might be for the benefit of all as it would make possible the
selection of a man occasionally from the ranks of the opposition in
place of an unsuitable candidate who by some means got the no
mination to an office to which he should not he elected.
The present prospects do not justify the belief that any such a
-condition will exist and we would urge the Republicans to place in
Domination men of unquestioned integrity who are comjAjtent to
fill the office for which they are nominated and then stand by them
to a man.
Frank Scott Dead.
The Death of Mr. Frank Scott,
Manager of Kilauea, Plantation, who
died at his home on Monday evening
last of apoplexy, after an illness of
only a few hours, was a great shock
to the whole community, On Sunday
afternoon he seemed to be quite well
but was taken ill in the nibt and
died about half past five on Monday

of Boxburgb Scotland, one of a family

The decased was conspieious for
those rua?d virtues of inunlioxl

deep in character, flu was a man of

htiaily or doubtful transaction. He
was scrupulously honest iu all business
in 2 Iters, in the least as wi 11 us the
greatest, and eminently faithful in
the discharge of bis duties in what-
