But let us see what will tue result of sending a Democratic
Delegate to Congress be.
In the first place there is hardly the remotest chance for the
election of Bryan and the betting on the issue m the great money
centers, is ten to one on Taft. The republican party is united
nnd under t.hft republican administration there has been a lony
period of unprecedented prosperity which will add much to the
certainty of the election of the Republican nominee. .
The republican party stands for a sound protective tariff that
will mean continued prosperity for the Islands and all living with
in its borders.
The democratic party is divided and it is certain that Hearsts
Independence League will take many thousands of votes from the
The awful financial conditions that existed during the adminis
tration of Cleveland in 185)3 to 18'.)(5 inclusive are fresh in the minds
of a great majority of those who a ill cast their votes this fall and
it is not possible that they will vote for a renewal of conditions
where untold thousands of able hodied working men were walking
the streets and public roads begging for work at any wage.
Not a single democratic state or territory has fared so well as
Hawaii has and just why we should turn down kuhio after what
has been accomplished in Washington and support an untried
neophyte is more than can be explained.
There seems to us no good reason why any member of the repub
lican party should vote against the satisfactory conditions that
exist and have existed for years under republican rule for tlie un
known conditions that will be in vogue if the democrats get con
roll. The only criterion we have by which to judge what the con

democrats did have controll in the past and that is none to their
With a few exceptions the men who are at the head of the demo
cratic party on this island are not of a class to inspire confidence
and until a greater number. of responsible men take an interest in
the local parly there is no hope that the democratic party could
accomplish any thing for the good of the community.
