-' 1 eondsidered from a scholastic stand
point it was something of a fiasco.
Though Makawao Republicans
are pleased at the election as repre
sentatives of Messrs. Carley, Naka

unpopularity , but owing to a com
plication of circumstances arising
from the tardy resignation of Chas.
K. Farden from the ticket. With
only live Republican nominees to
fill the six legislative positions,
there were about twelve hundred J
Republican votes to spare. rsawa

to some of these twelve hundred
Spare Republican votes, which by

thin layer of snow on Wednesday
morning the 1 1th.
