Should the same team win it

The Kahului team started this
season in a very weak condition
and won only one of the first five
games, after which it was strength
ened by H. Englifli, V. Ayau, Joe
Clement and W. Espinda of the
Riverside L6aguo, Honolulu, with
whose support the team have won
every game played.
' There remains but one postpon

Kahuluis and the Healanis but as

Sunday's game was a lively one,
in regard to noise, but the quality
of baseball put up by both sides
was not what is usually played by
these two teams.
Bento held down the plate for
tho Stars and was in no form
whatever, everyone of the Kahuluis
being able to connect at ease.
The Kahului players made
roveral errors and bad throws which
which helped the Stars to score.

Hawaiians Sourii Color Line
No better proof of the fairness of
the Hawaiian race can bo produced
than the result of the vote in Wai
luku at last Saturdays primary
There was but one issue during
the election and that' was the co'oi
line drawn by the Hart crowd who
had printed a great ninny tickets
which opposed the election of every
white man and endorsed all of the
twelve Hawaiians and part Hum a
iians. Opposed to this scheme were the
whites and Hawaiians alike and in
spite of the strongest efforts of
Hart and Coellio and men of that
class both of the white men who
wero slated to be slaughtered were
elected hero while Hart was elect
ed by but four more votes than, the
white man who received' the lowest
vote who was elected.
There were two hundred and
nine ballots east and three were
but forty-live white men who voteil.
Practically all of the other votes
were either cast by Hawaiians or
E. H. Hart was the only man
on the opposition ticket who was
opposed-by the fair play supporters
who was elected and he got in by
a very small majority.
During the voting Senator W. J.
Coolho, the driver of the delivery
wagon for the Puunonc Store at
Kahului addressed a few Hawaiians
and told them to vote for the Ha
waiians and not for a haole. He
said he never knew a haole to help
a poor man. He seemed to have
forgotten that he was nominated by
a haole his nomination, seconded
by a haole and that he is now earn
ing his bread from a haole business
This speech will probably be re
membered by a good many for a
long time to come.
There were but two sets of print
ed sample ballots and each was the
same except as to II. M. Coke and
R. A. Wadsworth being on one
slate and both left off by Hart, and
twelve Hawaiians and part Ha
waiians being on his ballot. Both'
white men were elected, and a study
of the voters lists shows that each
of tho white men received more
Hawaiian votes than either of them
did of votes of the white men.
It is to bchoped that this will
put an end to the drawing of the
color lino as it is plain that the
Hawaiians will not stand for this
sort of politics.

Saturday evening, the 5th, the
Republicans of tho new eleventh
precinct which roughly embraces
Makawao and Kaupakalun met at
the Makawao court house, organized,
and elected the following oiliccrs:
F. W. Hardy, president; G. M.
Maalo, first vice-president; Manuel
Almeida, second vice-president; S.
II. Dowdle, secretary ; Alfred Frank
lin, assistant-secretary; A. F. Ta

W. O. Aiken, A. S. Medeiros,
Henry Kahiamoe, and Alfred Fur
tado, executive committee and W.
I. Wells, Joe Morris, and M.
Porreira, judges of election. A. F.
Tavares, L. von Temp-sky, and W.
O. Aiken were chosen as delegate
to the country convention, and P.
F. Peck as delegate to the territorial
There were thirty-two voters ire
sent at this meeting but the mem
bership of tho vuh will probably
include two or three times that
number. There are many young
Portuguese citizens in this .section
who are in sympathy with Repub
lican party principles.
On Saturday-afternoon, the 5th,
the Kula Republican precinct club
of which Edgar Morton is president
elected as county delegates. Edgar
Morton, Ed. Forsythe, George Copp,
and Luk Chan. David Morton was
selected as territorial delegate.
Hon. Antone Gomez and E. B.
Carley, superintendent of the tele
phone company, are often mention
ed in the Makawao section as good
men for the legislature.
The Kaupakalun winery has just
completed its season's work of 30,
000 gallons of wine which is double
that of last year. About 30 barrels
of grape brandy has been manufac
tured to'bo used in fortifying the
wine. The manufacture of brandy
from pineapples proved unsuccess
ful the liquid produced being taste
less. One of the finest hospitals in the
territory is soon to bo constructed
at Paia nearly opposite to Dr. W.
F. McConkoy's residence though
somewhat nearer tho sea. The
building and interior fittings are to
be of the best design. The direct
tors of the M. A. Co. have recently
appropriated 10,000 for the struc
ture itself which, it is hoped, will
be completed by Jannuary 1st, 1009.

Washington Strangely Silent
About Kepoikai Matter.
What has happened to the Ke
poikai removal matttr?
Have the letters on the subject
which were written to Washington
nearly two months ago been receiv
ed or not?
Will any action be taken?
These and similar questions are
becoming topics of general talk in
Honolulu and those on both sides
and also Governor Frear are in
terested. In case there is nothing
heard from the matter by the next
.nail, which arrives on Friday by
the Alameda, Governor Frear will
write to Washing to ask if his
letters have been received.
The unusual part of the matter
comes from the fact that Governor
Frear has never even received an
acknowledgment of his letters,
which were addressed to the Secre
tary of the Secretary of the Interior.
It is customary in such cases when
letters of importance are received
which require consideration, to at
first simply acknowledge' reeept
but even this has not been done in
the present case, which was taken
up six weeks ago.
It is possible that the case may
lie taken up again before the Bar
Association. It is certain that a
vote if taken now would be ma
terially different from that which
was taken in January when charges
were filed against the Maui jurist.
Still there is an element of doubt
which causes those who are press
ing the charges to hesitate. There
are a dumber of lawyers here who
express their opinion very frankly
to the efl'e'ct that they believe that
Kepoikai should be removed, but
they are not at all anxious to get
into a row over the matter. For
this reason, though they hold a
firm opinion on the subject, wee a
meeting to he held, some would
not attend, in this manner avoid
ing any post-idle unpleasantness.
On the other hand Kepoikai's
friends would every one be on
hand. In this manner the senti
ment of the Bar Association itself
would not be given, whicil result
would be very unsatisfactory.
