Republican Senator Named
by Democrat Legislature.
WASHINGTON, February 20.
Whisky is siiiej to have Ifo.en the
1 . t 1 ... . .
medium through which the new
Senator from Kentucky, former
Governor William O, Council Brad
ley , swam to success. Tlrt charge
is. made by disgruntled and disap
pointed Democrats in Congress. It
is maintained that the four Demo
crats who elected the forniet Gover
nor by changing their votes at the
final ballot and refusing to entertain
overtures for a compromise were or
dered to do so by the anti-prohibi
turn interests of Louisville. One
report from Kentucky today is to
the effect that a majority .of these
four are engaged in the business
As a result of this there is now
under way a movement to incor
porate in the next Democratic na
tional platform a plank which will
advance the struggle of the States
for complete prohibition. This ac
lion will probably, not be taken un
less the bills now before Congress
fails of passage. The election of
Bradley has solidified the Democra
tic vote for these measures, and if
they get out of committee, where
they are said to be slowly strangling,
their passage is considered certain.
In addition to the resentment
caused by the reports from Kentuc
ky, the Democrats feel the effect of
the election in another way. The
naming of Bradley is regarded as a
body blow for the direct primary,
for which the Democratic party has
been contending for many years
tieciviiam won without question in
the primary advocating prohibition
for Kentucky, and was as much the
nominee for the Senatorship as he
was the primary cho.-en candidate
It is history that the 'Democratic
nominee for Governor was slaught
ered at the poll.'. The ellarge was
made at that time that the means
used were furnished by the liquor
interests. In the defeat of Beck
ham the Democrat of Kentucky in
Congn ss affect to iee the same mas
There is now pending hefoiv the
Judiciary Committee a bill which
prohibits the shipment of liquors
into prohibition States. The meas
ures is being fought bitterly on the
ground that it will undermine the
interestate s commerce law in the
first place, and, secondly, that it is
unconstitutional for the reason that
it abridges the right's of the indivi
dual to govern himself. It is open
ly acknowledged that the liquor in
terests are making the battle.
Another temperance 'measure is
being discussed, especially among
the. representatives in Congress from
those States that have gone "dry,"
which will repeal the issuance of
Federal licenses in such State as
have voted for prohibition. In
those States the Fedi ml license is
easy 01 acquirement. lo questions
are asked and the Federal Govern
ment, through such action, practi
cally declines to lend aid or en
couragement to prohibition com-.
mimities. For this reason the en
forcement of the prohibition law is
Only a short time ago Senator
Clay, of Georgia, a State which has
gone'"dry," caught in the bill for
the revision of the penal code a pro
vision that would have permitted
liquor to be sent through the nmilj
and had it amended. It was open
ly charged at that time that the
liquor interests jyere? behind this
legislation. This elwrge merely
shows to what length the interests
are driven to protect their business.
As. for a comprehensive plank in
the Democratic plantforni, Demo
crats lure declare that Bryan, while
not a prohibitionist, is for tem
perance and will not oppose it.
Beckham is a fighter, and little
doubt is expressed that lie will or-
gnnizc the delegates to, the Denver
((invention' and that the delegation
will carry with it open hostility to
1 1n liquoV interests. As Kentucky

As for the election in itself, .iside
from the means by which jt was
achieved. Congress "believes it is the
gainer by the naming of Bradley to
the Senate. The. new Senator is a
man of parts. He is a tried debater
and an eloquent orator. In the
matter of jxtlitical astuteness, be is
far and away the superior of Beck
ham, whose experience has practi
cally been confined to bis office as
Governor and who lacks the finish
that years bring.
Senator-elect Bradley is redheaded
and has Irish bloood. The combi
nation is prophetic of excitement.
He loves a political row' and will
join the ranks of thoseMrtiw Senators
who have kicked holes in the Senate
tradition that new members are to
be seen and not heard. But the
effect of his .election on national
politics is exciting general interest
It is generally conceded tonight that
it will insure the Kentucky .delega
lion for Fairbanks. The new Srnat
or undoubtedly will head the dele
gation and the political debt he Re

For this reason Tuft's chances of
swinging Kentucky have gone glim

ings of both Republicans and IX
moerats are dceididly mixed. The

Democrats arc enraged over the elec
tion of a Republican Senator, while
congratulating themselves on hav

will be seen that Senator Bradley
path is not to lie m pleasant places.

government was another matter
that met with the approval of the
Governor Frear tokHho children
that some day they too will be
fathers and mothers and urged
them to be good and true and
honest and to love our flag and our
country. He then granted the re
quest for a holiday.
Before the party dispersed
number of persons took pictures of
uarvy uornwcu leau in giving
three cheers for the Governor which
was responded to with' a will.
The exercises at the school being
over tho party went to the court
houso that is in course of construc
tion and made a thorough inspec
tion of the same. Tho work there
proved to be entirely .satisfactory
111 every respect and not a word of
adverse criticism was made either
as to the progress of the work of
the nature of the work being done
by tho contractor.
From, tho court house an inspec
tion was mado of tho jail and fire
station. Hero again' were conditions
that met the approbation of the
party. It is boubtful if there is a
jail in the territory that is kept
cleaner and in better condition than
the one in Wailuku. The only
criticism of Jailor Welsh and his
assistants is that they treat tho
prisoners so well that it is a god
send to many to ho sentenced to
jail whore thoy have better food,
better bode, and are more kindly
treated than they are at homo.
About cloven o'clock tho parly and
a number of Maui residents includ
ing Judge McKay, W. O. Aiken, II.
M. Coke, D. H. Case, Hugh Howell,
E Saffery and J. N. Keola went
up Iao Valloy to the head of the
wator system that was originally
laid by Taylor. The roason for the
trip was to call tho attention of tho
officials to the fact that the intake
of the water supply for the town

and by the ,tini the Governor
arrived there were over a thousand

ladies and gentlemen who assisted
in the work. '
On being introduced to the audi
ence Governor Frear said the object
of his visit to the island was,to be
come better acquainted ' with the
people and learn their wants and
wishes from first hand. He and
his party had been so royally en
tertained and so cordially received
by all of the people in every locality
that he must admit that the mottSt

He said we have the finest stretch
of cane lands, the finest mill, the
best irrigation system in the world
and one of the best pineapple dis
tricts in tho territory that 'is 'al
ready the second industry in im
portance in the county. While the
rubber industry gives forth every
promise of being a close rival of
tho sugar industry in the course of
a few years.
He had visited the Ku!a farmers
where great stretches of corn and
potatoes are grown and everywhere
he had found the people progressive
He said his knowledge of Maui
extended over a period of over a
quarter of a century when ho had
come to Maui in a sailing vessel
from Honolulu on a' visit to friends
in Makawao over thirty five years
ago. At that time there' were no
steamers plying between the islands
and no railrods in the territory.
He said that then the mode of
sending letters to the sailing vessel
was by means of a bulloc'k cart and
that at. that time 'there was -but
one bouse in Kahului. In stikinir
contrast to tho conditions existing
then you now have regular steam
ers plying between tho islands,
railroads for your freight and as a
means of travel and automobiles
rush over the routes that were diffi
cult for horsos in tho olden days
and where but one house stod in
Kahului there are now many bus
iness houses anu one of the most
active places in the territory and
some say that the county seat may
be there yet.
Ho said "Never bo satisfied" Go
ahead and let us get more. Di.
abuso your minds of the idea that
tho government must do every
thine for us. The government is
organized for-tlTo purpose of doing
in a body what an individual can
not do. Most, of what we get we
must get for ourselves.
The Federal Government has
done much for us but not enough.
The bringing of the Congressmen
here was a good thine. We now
have many, friends fn Congress
wheie wo formerly had but few.
The Secretary of tho Navy now
looks after us where before tho work
was dono by a subordinate. I feel
that the government should make
the harbor at Kahului ,n liarhqr
equal to that of Honolulu.

are very dillicult. Different classes

of allotting the lands and tho mat

the Federal Government to the ex

Again let ine admonish you to vote

The Governor seemed to win the
confidence of all who heard him as
he has of all whom he has met.
He wasfollowed by Secretary of
the Territqry E. A. Mott-Smith
who opened his address with tho
remark that he had not expected
to speak as he had been looking

of taking out a hunting license'
