"that he, Gibson, wotld doinore for
them than their friends .who had
been tried and true for years.
"The time came when the white
p:oplc realized that unless they
went actively into the fight to offset
this work, 'all would be- injured.
The "result was that Gibson was
knocked out, but only after a long
period of trouble which hurt the
people and hurt the country. The
Hawaiians finally realized that peo
ple o Gibson's stamp were not their
true friends. They came to their
senses and worked hand in hand
with men like II. 1'. Raldwin, Gay,
W. 0. Smith and men who have
the best interests of the Islands and
its people at heart.

well received and it looks to lie a
walkover for the party this year.

It is a long leap from the Home
Hole party to that of. the Democra
tic party and it is certain that
many of the Home Killers will
vote the Republican ticket in pre
ference to the Democratic ticket for
the reason that the treatment of the
Hawaiians by high Democratic of
ficials has been any thing but
eOirteous in times past while the
republicans have at all times shown
them every consideration that could

The people recognize the fact
that the Republicans have kept
their pledges in the past and have
done more for the advancement of

since the organization of the Re
publican party than was done in

ginning of representative govern
ment. himself for years. When there are
no more kulcanas for him to get,
then he will probably stop trying to
get more land.
"It would, be a great pleasure for
me to meet Mr. McCandlcss for a
joint debate on the stump.

Time of Need.
.ludge A. N. Kepoikai took up
the matter of the shortage of the
accounts of Rev. S. Kapu as ad
ministrator of the estate of Henry
Cooper ,Ir. deceased, on Monday of
this week. As was reported in the
News some time ago Rev. Kapu
testified tiiat he had been request
ed by Judge Kalua to give him the
money which he did, but for which
he received no receipt as he trust
ed the Judge who waa at that time
presiding Judge of .lie local court.
Last week Kami appeared before
the court and asked for further
time in order , to make good the
amount he had given Kalua.
When the ease was culled this
week, Judge Kepoikai, it is said,
had already prepared the commit
nient papers o commit the ad
ministrator for contempt of court
in not complying with the order of
the court in paying into court the
amount due the estate.
It was at this time that Honor
able II. I. Raid win came to the
rescue of the administrator and
offered to make good the amount
of the principal il the attorney for
ihe heir would waive all claim to
the interest due.
J. L. Coke was the attorney for
the heir and readily agreed to this
after consulting witli his client.
Attorney J. Light foot spoke in
the highest terms of the generosity
of Honorable II. 1. Baldwin in
coming to the rescue of Rev. S.
Kapu who was the victim of cir
cumstances andot a criminal.
On the recommendation of .Mr.
Lightfoot and on the statement of
attorney J. L.'Coke that the settle
ment of the estate' on the lines
stated by Mr. Lightfoot were satis:
factory to him and his client, the
Court made an order directing
the acceptance of the amount due
the estate less the interest duo plus
tile cost of court of 10 and ordei
ing the discharge of the admini
strator. Hon. II . 1'. Baldwin then paid
the amount found to be due on
these terms anil the administrator
was discharged as administrator
and is now free from further worry,
from, this estate.
Rev. Kapu is not an experienced
business man and has acted most
foolishly in some ways in the con
duct of the estate affairs but none
ijho have followed the easts closely
believe he has profited by the funds
of the estate but has allowed his
better nature to eontroll where the
application of business principles
should have prevailed.
Much praise was expressed for
the generous assistance of Rev.
Kapu by Principal C. A. Mc
Donald, who contributed lloO to
ward the fund to settle the estate,
and Hon. H. P. Raldwin who paid
$702.55 rather than see an inno
cent 11:1111 imprisoned. Rev. Kapu
is a teacher in Lahiiinaluua school
and is in 110 way connected with
rtho many interests of Mr. Baldwin?!
The Maui News had decided to
start a subscription for Kapu in
this issue and bad agreed to allow
R. C, Searle to head the list with a
substantial contribution which was
to have been followed by a like
amount by the editor of the News.
There were many othors who would
readily have contributed to the
fund but this is now unnecessar
