rivalry between the two. Al! t'.v.i' makes it
insr of obiecls. here and there, and the rattle
j turnalistic skulls.
The contention of the Advertiser that thctv is room tor whit
European or oilier while laborers for the sugar Imitations and at
the same time room for-homesteadois is correct and it is equally,
true that the one would ho of great benefit to the oilier.
Any farming community must have local markets for its pro
duce, that cannot bo shipped in order to make the most possible,
out of the land and none but those who are wealthy can afford to
raise such produce that must be shipped away and hope to make
their enterprize a paying proposition.
Yith the Oriental population almost exclusively employed on the
plantations at the present time there is but little opportunity for
the white producers to dispose of their products to local consum
ers. The Orientals use but little that is produced locally nnd what
they do use they prefer to boy from their own countrymen.
If however there was a large white population employed in the
cane fields those who would come to make homes on the public
lands would find a ready market for their produce that would
necessarily have to find a local market and such sales would great
ly add to their incomes and probably carry the homesteaders
until the better paying crops that require time could be placed on
the markets of the mainland.
With white laborers and white settlers Hawaii would be not only
the Paradise of the Pacific but the Paradise of the world.
Our Democratic Those claiming to be Democrats have met
Friends. in convention and organized for the coming
contest. That some of them are Democrats at heart we do not
doubt. That a number of them have the welfare of the community
at heart we do not question. . That, a number of those who are on
the Executive County Central Committee are in the party for
revenue only we verily believe and base this belief on an acquaint
ance with certain of the gentlemen in question.
In business, opposition is known as the life of trade. In politics
it is necessary to have good healthy opposition in order to keep
those in Dower on the alert and watchful for the welfare of the
community or else things becoue slack and in time in an unsatis
We see no improvement over the leaders of the Home Rule f arty
in a number of those who are apparently at the head of the Demo
cratic party and would strongly advise those who have thought of
casting their lot with the Democrats to study carefully the per
sonelle of the leaders of the opposition party before making the
mistake of their lives, politically by joining them.
Certain changes are badly needed iti the Republican party but
instead of deserting the party on this account we believe that a
great majority of the needed changes can be made by standing to
gether and working for the better state in the Republican party
than by becoming turncoats in the time of need.
We believe that a very great majority of those elected to oflice
by the Republican party should be re elected and th:t whatever
other changes are desirable cun bj made by the members of the
party at the primaries and precinct club, meetings.

the loss to the Judge would have been

Judge Kepoikai has exercised the
utmost precautions to prevent a tire
