The Republican Victory.
TO the victors belong the spoils, is an old axiom, that is quite
appropriate in the present instance. The victors in this ease are
the people. To be suro the Republican party and its principles
were accepted by the people, and the policies of that party vindicated.
Still the voters of Hawaii have again shown to the rest of America that
they can loose sight of the petty politics as was preached to them from
every street corner, that they are not so easily turned from a purpose, as
some would think, that when occasion requires it, they can look beyond
the tricks and vote catching platitudes of so-called spellbinders, and
east their votes whore they know they will reap a just reward.
The Republican candidates came before the Maui voters and asked
them to vote the straight Republican ticket. They told them that in so
di ling they were voting for the best interests of themselves and their
families. The voters have taken the party platform, accepted it, vindi
cated the past actions of the Republican party, and thereby shown their
faith in the leaders of that party. They have virtually handed over the
reins of government to the Republicans, and told them to make good.
Mr. Dooley says "opportunity knocks at every mans door once,'' and
it seems that the opiortunity for the men elected Tuesday to serve these
islands, and make for themselves a lasting reputation, is at hand. This
is no time for petty jealousies, vindictive retaliations, or personal pre
judices. The successful candidate can afford to be charitable to his late
rival, and the ones who have fallen by the wayside, but who put up an
honorable fight, have nothing to be ashamed of, and all should join
hands, for a better and more progressive Hawaii. Time was when the
bitterness of political fights would permeate the business world, the
public square, and the home, but men have ceased to allow themselves
to be dominated through life by the bitterness of political campaigns.
It is better so, because no man can do justice to himself or his country,
while he is brooding, over fancied wrongs, or writhing under the sting of
things done and said during a political campaign. Let the religion of
charity settle over these islands for the next two years, and all work to
gether for the common end of prosperity to all.
The Democrats have been able to gain a majority ia Congress, but it
does not require a Sherlock Holmes to discover the cause. The Repub
licans defeated themselves by their factional differences. Regulars and
Insurgents had locked horns in a desperate struggle for supremacy, and
over their shoulders the Democrats have scrambled into a majority
History will repeat itself, however, as they will be so flustrated with
their temporary success, that they will be sure to slop over, and two
years hence will see another great Republican landslide.
The article appearing in another column of the News this week, re
garding the Mary Sylva case, was in the office lasj. week, but the editor
did not feel inclined to publish it at that time, as it is not our wish to
drag these things unnecessarily before the public, especially when we
could be accused of using them for political purposes. We publish it
this week at the request of the parties concerned.
It is to be hoped that this election will be an object lesson to men, who
refuse to abide by the will of the majority in the conventions. It is next
to impossible for an independent to be elected, when he has no tangible
reason for bolting the party, other than his own personal ambitions, as
against the welfare of the people.
Now that the campaign is over, we shall expect to see some of the bad
spots in the roads fixed up. These bad spots are getting a little too
plentiful to be pleasant.
Some of those who were willing to back their judgement as to the out
come of the election, with coin of the realm, made a nice little clean up.

Handed Do wo. By Judge Kingsbury In
' the Now Noted Case of Mary Sylva.
It is regretable that in the hen
of a political campaign the names of
innocent pavties are dragged into
the public prints in connection with
the action or conduct of some can
didate for public favor to explain or
show up the stand he has taken up
on some issue of public interest
When Judge Kepoikai told the peo
ple at Puuiki, Hana, his connec
tions with Catholics and asked for
their support on that ground he
put the matter of his good faith
with Catholics at issue and thl
inconsistency of his statement from
the stump, and his estimation of
Catholics as described in a brief
recently filed by the law firm of
Kepoikai and Burchard, attorneys
for Mary Sylva, an incompetent
person, by Annie Mulvany, her
guardian, in a suit in equity liefore
Judge Kingsbury, to set aside cer
tain conveyances, naming Mary
Dunn. .Margaret Glenn and Sarah
Crozier, daughters of the plaintiff,
as defendants. '
In justice to these innocent part
ies, and the two Catholic priests
named by plaintiffs in the complaint
of having unduly influenced the
plaintiff, the Court in rendering its
decision, declares them innocent of
having any dishonest motives in
the conspiracy alleged by plaintiff
against the three defendant's daugh
tero or plaintiff and the two Catholic
priests for the purpose of defraud,
ing Mary Sylva of her property as
alleged in the complaint. -
ltie ixnirt nnds ttiere was no
conspiracy to obtain unfairly and
dishonestly said properties; that
the transactions complained of were
open, fair' and equitable, and thut
none of the children of Mary Sylva
has any occasion to complain.
That the said Mary Sylva was
competent to do business and sueh
business as she did perforin i
regard to the disposal of said pro
perties; that she did not strip hei
self of all of her property and
money, and had made an equitable
division of the rest of her property
among her said four daughters,
Annie Mulvany, Mary Dunn, Mar
garet Glenn and Sarah Crozier;
finds the charge of undue Influenoe
by any one of said defendants un
founded and that none of said
daughters have any standing in a
court of equity to set aside those
proceedings in which they all parti
cipated, agreed upon and were satis
In such language the Court exon
erates the three daughters of Mary
Sylva, named as defendants, and
the two Catholic priests from all
imputations of fraud in said trans
action, and confirms the previous
act of Mary Sylva in deeding her
property to be shared equally by
her four daughters. A transaction
which sounds regular and natural to
a layman with no imputation of any
crookedness in it.
