Election Return returns as the same were given us ly phone
and wireless service. In a number of instances the returns are
found to have been incorrect and while the result of the election
is the same there are so many who depend upon the published re
turns for future reference we have again published the returns
after getting them from the ollicial returns on tile in the County
Clerk's olliee and the County Sheriff's office. The returns as giv
en in the Nkws of this issue are the same as ollicial returns.
Japanese The Japanese news papers of Honolulu are appeal
Knhunaism ing to the authorities to put a stop to the practices
of Japanese Kahunas who are carrying- on their evil work in do
fiance of the law and its ollicers.
The charge is made that these fellows have been run out of Ja
pan for the reason of their ellegal practices and find Hawaii an
Ideal place wherein to reap a golden harvest.
Particular attention has recently been called to the practice of
one of these fellows in Wailukn who is assisted by a Jap doctor in
nbt.iininn- a burial certificate when death occurs. Such matters as
those should be taken up by the Board of health. The local agent
of the Board of health and Sheriff Safl'ery have the matter in hand
and results may he expected.
The Hawaii Shimpo, the leading Japanese news paper has the fol
"The manner in which certain fakirs, under tne cloak of religion,
are robbing the credulous Japanese throughout the islands' is some
t.hincr of which the authorities miaht well take notice. In fact, it
is necessary that they should. Conditions are getting intolerable
and the Kahuna menace among the laboring classes of the Jap
anese is assuming a malignant form.
The Japanese press has called attention to this stale of affairs on
several occasions, but as yet there have been no steps taken by
the authorities to either check or mitigate it. The Japanese com
munity can only voice itself through its press. Without citizenship,
the Japanese have representation, among governing oinciais ami
can only appeal to the authorities tnrougn petition or tno press.
In this manner the press is a unit and speaks with one voice a
gainst the Japanese false preisthood. Now, among the Japanese,
the cress is a power for good, but if its united voice is to be total
ly disregarded in this inarter of calling for protection, its inlluence
will wane. Already the fakirs are gibing the uewspapers because
of their impotence.
Scattered throughout the islands are persons styling them
selves Driests. unscrupulous men who have been driven out of
Japan for the very things they are doing here with impunity.
Through slight of hand tricks, incantations and necromancy they
have impressed their power upon the ignorant Japanese. I heir
practise is kahunaisam pure and simple. Thev preach a coctrine
of faith cure, advising their followers to forsake physicians in
cases of sickness and place reliance on the "holy waters and pa
per prayers of themselves, whicJi they sell at exorbitant prices.
They go further than this and blackmail those who will not cont ri
bute to them, threatening to bring sickness, accidents ana mis
fortune unless bribed to keep back the evil spirits they claim to
They profess to haVe the gift of second sight and deal in love
potions, charins and other devices of chicanery. To such an ex
tent have they impressed themselves upon the ignorant that hus
bands pay them to locate runaway wives, wives pay them to give
them back the love of their husbands, lovers pay to secure the af
fections of the ones sought and barren women pay heavy lolls for
fruition. Through their evil inlluences these priests break up
homes in order to blackmail the members of it, they use their
hold over the women who come to them to debauch their patrons.
In all ways their inlluece is for evil.
Just now, when the question of seeking an advance in wages is
being agitated among the Japanese laborers, tne homes of these
fakirs are centers of agitation. They employ demagogic methods
to inflame the feelings of the laborers against the employers, are
fanning the smouldering fire in order to promote strikes and
troubles from which they hope to gain in inlluence.
Now that the citizens are able to turn to the things of everyday
life after the election excitement, it is to be hoped that this mutter
of squelching the Japanese kahunas will be taken up promptly and
vigorously. The innocent Japanese are entitled to tho protection
of the law equally with the citizen and in this matter tho whole
Japanese community requires protection.

Jack London's Naw Book.
Jack London has just written n book of
142,000 words entitled "Martin Fden.'
THF. PACIFIC MONTHLY has purchas
ed for $7,01x1 the seriei rights for this
vivid story. It began in the September
number of THK PACIFIC MONTHLY
and will run for twelve months.
"Martin Fden" is a character study
the story of a fighter a fighter as a
newsboy in the alleys of San Francisco
a fighter as a rowdy in slums; and finally,
a fighter for education and culture, strug
cling against the odds of common birth
and vulger environment, with a itesj era
tion of courage that presents a powerful
blending of brutality of strength with
sublimity of purxse. Ilis inspiration is
a woman of the higher sphere of life, but
his motive is the mighty impulse that
animates a soul and brain born to ex
pand until fettering ignorance is sunder
ed and ignoble influence trampled under
It is not too much to say of "Martin
Fden" that it possesses more of fastina
tion Hnd virility, grips the imagination
and the sympathies more keenly, and
imparts more of courage, than any book
produced in years.

tllOSK of our readers who visited us last year during the Holiday Season will
have little difficulty in remembering the really choice and artistic as well as
low -priced lines of Japanese goods. To those who visited us last year, we
will only say that our Japanese line this year laps over that of last very materially
ami that we can also show you some of the newest and latest novelties from New
York ami the Pacific Coast.
The little folks have not been overlooked, and our stock of Dolls, Toys, etc.,
is both complete ami varied. We have been preparing for our Christmas opening
and will be readv to receive von
Monday, Tlovember I6tb.
We can confidently guarantee that you will find no second grade goods in
either quality or workmanship. We have made an effort to display good articles in
a very w ide range as to price so thai you can find a first-class article at ten cents
or at leu dollars but no shoddy goods at any price. We shall not try to sell you
cheap goods but good goods cheap. We can certainly satisfy the fastidious pur
chaser who wishes to send a present that shall be tasteful, pleasing, dainty and at
any price desired.
Our Yokohama representative, owing to the hard times in Japan, haS this year
secured for us a line of hand-wrought Oriental ware of many kinds that greatly
exceeds our expectations and which you will surely do well to see.
Porcelain -A large assortment of individual piece goods in dainty hand-painted
articles, tasteful and harmonious and inexpensive, as well as tea sets and bouillon
needlework fuller line than that of last year and all hand worked on only first
quality material, the Linen being best Irish and the Lawn imported Rnglish.
Ladies' Wonse and Dress patterns exquisitely finished in embroidery, eyelet work
and drawn work in a wonderfully varied and individual series of designs. In fact
there are almost 110 duplicates in the entire line. Pillow Tops, Pillow Cases, Belts,
Collars, Shawls, Handkerchiefs, etc., all serviceable and in a wide range as to price.'
Cable LI nen The entir.e line is extra standard and far too good value at the
. prices asked to last very long. A novelty in this year's selection will be shown in
Table Needlework in sets. Tray Cloths, Doilies and Mats in unique and striking
designs. An exceptionally harmonious assortment of Silk and Silk Crepe Needle
work delicately designed in Kimonos, Scarfs, llabv Jackets, Iilouse patterns, etc.
Hacquertvare An addition to the line of Panels, Picture Frames, Wood and
Trinket lioxes carried last year will be found in substantial Cabinets and serviceable
Tables, also Kgg-Shell Lacquer, a novelty in the islands.
Cloisonne Our buyer has spread himself here and the result is a finer selection
even than the one which proved so popular last year. Discriminating people who
wish to send their Fastern friends something essentially typical of Japanese design
and craftsmanship will certainly find it in the sympathetic and artistic handiwork
shown in this assortment.
lyawaiian Curios In this line we will show the usual assortment found during
the holiday season in first-class Island stores.
Our American and Furoptan lines of Holiday Ooods w ill not be found deficient
nor inferior even tho' in this "Half Way Station" between the Orient and the
Occident we feel that special emphasis should be placed on those things that are
distinctively typical of Nippon.
Prices We are but following the established precedent in this store in selling
Holiday goods at prices at which you cannot afford to let us keep them any longer.
We bought these goods very nearly at first bauds- and can afford to sell nt very
