They Get Careless With Giant Powder,
With Fatal Rcsslts.
Wednesday afternoon about two
o'clock, seven Hawaiian boys be
longing around liana, started out
fishing. They took along with them
4 sticks of giant powder with the
intention of exploding it in the
water, thus making it easier to fish.
When they got ready to use the
powder they found it was wet so
they built a fire, put the broken
sticks of powder in a large lard can,
mil put it on the fire to dry. One
lxy was on his knees before the fire,
and another was stirring up the
powder in the can, with the other
boys standing around, when sudden
ly there was a terrific explosion.
When the boys who were farthest
away from tho explosion pulled
themselves together they discovered
Pomaikai, who was on his knees
thatbefore the firo had been killed,
and the body was terribly muti
lated. Davida Hanakahi; who was
stirring the powder in the can, was
minus his right arm, and another
boy had lost three of his toes.
Tho boys who escaped with but
slight injuries were Chas. Kaimi,
Kalahikiola, Kaai, Kinikalakaua
Hano. The Sheriff was not'notified
until late Wednesday evening. . A
coroner's jury was summoned and
brought in a verdict of death caused
by tho careless use of powder.
Kahului Young Men's Club.

entertainments of this sort as there

enclosed, there ,was a large space
left open along the entire side of the

allowed of. a generous circulation of
air. The music, which was supplied
by members of the Club, was ex
cellent, and moro than one dancer
was heard to say that it was perfect

The Democrats and Home Rulers Have
Two Days of Merry Making.
HOME RULE CONVENTION.
The County Convention of the
Home Rule Party consisting of
fourteen delegates and nine proxies,
presided over by Charles K. Notlcy
convened at 10:30 o'clock, Wednes
day morning in the littld green
building at the rear of the Kaahu-
manu Church, Wailuku, and listen
ed to a long speech by Mr. Notlcy.'
The Home Rule leader's speech was
mainly an appeal to his followers to
remain in the fold. He pleau with
them not to enter the two other
parties but to flock by themselves
in the party for Hawaiians, tho
Home Rule party. The convention
itself looked lxired and gavo no out
ward sign of approval. Nor did it
manifest any feeling when with an
outburst of oratorical pyrotecnics
the leader denounced the immigra
tion policy of tho planters and the
An hour and a half of the time of
the convention was taken up with
Notley's speech and other matters
of a purely formal nature, and the
real business of nominating candi
dates Mr the coining elections was
despatched in thirty minutes, an in
decation of a cut and dried plan
agreed upon at a caucus of Home
Rule and Democratic leaders, as
later developments showed, which
was safely engineered through the
Home Rule convention in its en
tirety. But the Democratic conven
tion did not take it down nicely, the
rebellions ones managed to make
several breaks in it, but the steam
roller with Supervisor T. B. Lyons
at the throttle rammed the whole
of the fusion slate through unbroken,
except only where the asuto Mr.
Lyons winked at his followers.
The ticket nomination by tho
Home Rulers is as follows:
Senator, C. L. Kookoo. Repre
sentatives, S. P. Kaai of Molokai,
J. K. Hihio of Lahaina, A. B.
Naone and Antonc Do Rego of Wai
luku) Sam Kuulaof Kula, Makawao,
J. M. Noa Kupau of Kaupo.
County Officers: Supervisors,
Hana, John Kamamiwai ; 'Makawao,
Nelson Kalo; Wailuku, T. B. Lyons;
Lahaina, Geo. Kauhi; Molokai, O.
Tollefsen. Sheriff, H. C. Mossman ;
Auditor, Moke Keohokalole; 'Trea
surer, John W. Rccard; For Clerk
and County Attorney no nomina
tions we're made.
The Democratic Convention for
the County of Maui met in the Wai
luku. Town Hall, at 2:30 o'clock p.
niT Wednesday afternoon.
T. B. Lyons was elected Chairman
and Manuel C. Ross Secretary. After
completing its organization and ap
pointing tfie committees and passing
on the credentials of the delegates,
Moses Makajwi and other. Democrats
made speeches on the issues of the"
approaching- campaign, until five
o'clock when an adjournment was
Thursday morning 10 a. m. tho
convention resumed business. On
roll call there were fifty-seven dele
gates present in person and by proxy
Lanai, Kaunakakai and another
small precinct were unrepresented.
The nomination of legislative can
didates was taken up. Several De
mocratic leaders claimed that the
Home Rulers had made up a ticket
which the Democrats were expected
to swallow, and as tho Homo Rule
Convention had not asked for a con
ference tho Democrats should look
out for their own interests and not
take everything- for, "granted. Tho
prpgrammists saw a fight coming
and safely steered clear by allowing
the antis to have, their way and the
nomination for senator was left a
For representatives delegations
from different districts adjourned to
caucusand co initiatothose who were
inclined to kick into the mysteries
of selecting acceptable candidates.
The Wailuku delegation failed to
agree over their choice and handed
the selection over to the convention
which did it neatly and nicely for
them, the program being upheld by
a vote of forty-two for Naone to
fifteen for Nawahine.
The house nominees were, Molo
kai, S. P. Kaai; Lahaina, J. K.
Hihio; Wailuku, A. B. Naone:
Hana, J. M. Noa Kupau; at large,
Antohe Do Rego. A. Do Rego re
ceived 43 votes to Nawahine's eleven
and Burn's three.
For County Supervisors, Molokai,
O. Tollefsen; Lahaina, Geo. Kauhi,
won out over Aug. Reimann in tlie
the district" caucus; Wailuku, T. B.
Lyons; Makawao and Hana districts
County Sheriff, H. C. Mossman;
County Clerk, Morris Keohokalole;
County Attorney, left blank, and for.
County Treasurer, John W. Recard.
After finishing the work A. B.
Naone brought forth a fusion joker
in the shape of a resolution endorsing
the Home Rule nominees for the
vacant Scnatorship and the Maka
wao and Hana Supervisors.
Nelson Kaloa himself a Home
Rule nominee strongly objected to
fusing with Home Rulers. He
wanted to fuse with Republicans.
Geo. Kaonohi was of the same mind
as Nelson Kaloa, and did not want
to endorse Hbme Rule nominees as
he did not want to vote for a "boy"
like Kaloa. He wanted good men.
On a vote being taken the fusion
resolution carried by a unanimous
rote, but the objectors keptonkick
ng after it was all over.
Gc6. Kaonohi wanted the con
vention to endorse L. ,L. McCand-
less for delegate to Congress, and
and Nelson Kaloa wanted Charles
Notley endorsed also, since the con
vention had endorsed the Home
Rulo nominees. The proposition
struck the Convention as some
thing funny and everybody laughe'd.
