W. J. Bryan
Will be Nominated In First
CHICAGO, June !). " Tlio car
dinal rulo of the democracy is the
rule of the majority," declared Col.
Honry Wattereon today, and to
that epigram expressing his opinion
of the present candidacy of Gov.
Johnson, whom he first brought
forward for the presidential nomi
nation more than a year ago, the
Kentucky colonel added his pre
diction that Bryan will he nomi
nated at Denver by the democrats
next month upon the first ballot
and by acclamation. The Louis
ville editor is on his way to pass a
couple of days witn Bryan at Lin
coln, Neb., and he stopped over at
the Auditorium Annex for a few
hours today to shake hands with
republican leaders, to whom he is
as well known as he is to the chief
tains of his own party.
"Johnson's cause a lost cause,"
said Col. Walterson. ''lie is the
victim of procrastination. When
Bryan said in a speech a year and
a half ago that he would step aside
if shown a candidate who could of
fer more chances of making a race
promising greater sucess, I took
him at his word and named Gov.
Johnson. But the introduction of
the Minnesota governor into the
presidential arena fell as Hat as a
stale buckwheat cake. There was
nothing doing. Hardly a soul
jumped up and murmured 'Hur
rah 1' That lethargy lasted through
out all of 1907, and it was not until
along in March of this year that
the east took up Johnson. The
east is not the part of tho country
from which the advocacy of John
son should have come, and three
months ago was not the time to es
pouse the candidacy of Johnson.
"To bring forward Johnson and
nominate him at this late day
would be to ruin the chances of the
democrats to .carry tho election.
But thero is no danger of that dis
aster happening. Bryan will win
on the first ballot by acclamation.
I do not believe that Johnson can
have more than 200 or 250 votes at
the utmost in the Denver conven
tion. Only once in tho history of
the democratic party has a candi
date who entered a democratic
national convention with a majori
ty of the delegates been defeated
for the nomination by the workings
of tho two-thirds rule, and that was
in 1844, when tho 'allies,' as they
would be termed nowadays, suc
ceeded in keeping the nomination
from going to Former President
Van Buren, who had a majority,
but lacked two-thirds of tho con
vention. ''It is hard to look forward from
June to November, but I feel that

Season's Pack Will be 400,
HONOLULU, June 30 Four
hundred thousand cases of canned
pineapples will be turned out as the
product of tho Hawaiian canneries
this season, there being that much
of a pack in sight and assured. Last
year there were one hundred and
ninety thousand cases, less than
one-half this year's output will
amount to. And there is assurance
if the plans of the various planters
carry through, that by tho year 1910
the pack in the Territory will
amount that year to one million
The reason is at hand, and
throughout the grpup the prions
canneries have been making short
runs in warming up for the rush
that may come at any time. At the
cannery of the Hawaiian Pineapple
Company, in Iwilei there have been
six short shift3 worked so far with

inery has been found to work satis

with Bryan we have a fighting
chance this year. I have not be
fore seen the democrats so thor
oughly in accord with Bryan's can
didacy. There appears to be' little
real oppositicn to him among the
democrats. Tuft will certainly be
the republican candidate and I be
lievo that Bryan could beat Taft
with certainly if the election were
to be held tomorrow with a national
campaign or Jhe expenditure of a
republican campaign fund.
'.'I say a republican campaign
fund, because with two of Taft's
brothers multi-millionaires, with
tho predatory trusts' as President
Roosevelt has dubed them, lined
up behind the republican ticket and
with no law for the publicity of
campaign contributions upon tho
statute books it seems hardly an
exaggeration to predict that the
war on theFe predatory trusts' will
bo tho main issue of this campaign
and I fancy the strength of Bryan's
candidacy will lie in tho common
sonse of the voters of this country
when asked to decide whether they
will trust the job of bridling tho
trust to Bryan or to a candidate
who wears the mask of Taft, but
bohind whom lurk talons of Harri
man, Morgan and 'the system.' "

HONOLULU, June 215. Fred L.
Leslie, a well-known resident of the
islands, returned from the Colonies
in the Marania after a pleasant visit
in Melbourne, Sydney and Auck
land. He states that lavish prep
arations are being made for the re
ception of the American licet in the
three cities. Each in vying with the
other to make its visit the most en
joyable for the Americans.
Great rivalry exists between the
three towns, and aside from the sub
scriptions of individuals, the govern
ments both state and city are par
ticipating so that the American jail
ors will have a time in far-oif Aus
tralia not equaled by the receptions
accorded them in their own country.
There has been raised and appro
priated a sum of money aggregating
nearly a quarter of a million dollars
for the visit to Sydney. The sailors
are being referred to as "our coining
cousins" or "our American cousins.'
The fleet program so far arranged is
as follows: Vice Admiral Poore in
his flagship, the Powerful, will meet
the American fleet at Auckland.
Remaining there a couple of days,
the Powerful will convey the Gover
nor General to Melbourne and there
participate in the welcome to be ac
corded at the Victorian port.
The landing at Melbourne on
August, 20 will be followed by a pro
cession and reception. The enter
tainments are to be separately given
by those interested. There will be
the civie-eelC'ITrations, the entartain
ments. It has been decided that
the uniforms of the sailors will en
title them to "free admission to the
theaters on one day of the visit.
Free automobiles will be at the dis
posal of the men, also. The trains
will be free and transportation into
the country on the railroads will be
given to the sailors in uniform.
The Australians are getting wise
to the fact that the American sail
ors are strangers to English iponey,
so the government has made it
known that during the visit, and
for a reasonable time after, traders
and others who may take American
money at its face value shall be re
funded in British coin, either at the
Treasury or the banks. Meanwhile,
at the Intelligence Department or
other suitable places, specimens of
genuine American money may be
exhibited, giving their names and
Sydney's first blast of enthusiasm
will reach the fleet from the Heads.
The Heads are the gateway to the
city. It is proposed to have at least
20,000 people with flags and bands
of music congregated there as the
warships pass in, to properly wel

tainment of the American fleet in

provision will be made for a thous

for entertaining the men of the fleet,
the government will act in conjunc

A volunteer review will be held
and an official welcome will be ac
corded to the American Admiral,
and souvenirs will bo presented.
The Mayor of Auckland will hold
a reception, which will be attended
by the Admiral and officers of the
voting lit v t, and the citizens.
