upon which Kuhio hung his
charges, Ashford was obliged to ad
mit that there could be no objec
tions to it. Albert Hdrner will
probably go on the stand today or
tomorrow and tell his plan for set
tlement by homesteaders incorporat
ing in it a central mill ar.d the in
terests to 1)0 safeguarded by the ap
pointment of two trustees each, by
the planting and mill interests and
the fifth by the governor of the
territory. It looks like a feasable
plan and one that will result to the
good of the country. Yesterday
Mr. Ivers told of the lack of water
in a majority of plantation com
panies stock, forgetting the while
his testimony before the tax appeal
board, Hilo when in referring to
Poauhau, he mentioned about the
capitalization of Hamakua climate.
Political matters here are stran ge
ly mixed for last night the politick
era of the fifth district, "Achi's
Own" turned him down so hard
that he drenched himself copiously
with linament after the meeting to
remove the soreness. Opposition
to Breckons, who aims to be chair
man of the Territorial Convention,
developed during the caucus last
night so that the Cheyenne b nch
does not know exactly where it is
at. During the primary election
at Kaimuki last Saturday night
Allie Clarke, who aspires to leader
ship in the Republican party, in
the first precinct of the fourth dis
trict, was defeated and Towse, who
for more than a fortnight had been
considered politically dead, polled
the biggest vote in the precinct to
Clarke's near-smallest. And while
the ballots were being counted a
wordy war between these two rivals
to leadership ended in a fight in
which Clark did not get the decision
though he might have had not been
for the fact that fraternal influence
was brought to bear and he accept
ed a public apology from Towse.
Mr. Murray says he is out for good
and Krueger was believed to be
willing to follow but mention of his
name favorably in the caucus in the
fifth last night may change matters.
In the primary election Murray's
ticket was defeated without much
THB WHISKEY RING.
Today the Advertiser mentions a
whiskey ring and gives names of
the men who are running the lines
to victory or defeat. It is said that
Sam Johnsjn was defeated in his
wish to be delegate from the Waiki
ki district by this bunch and in
fluence is being brought to bear up
on Harold Castle to keep Johnson
from being a candidate for supervi
sor. The opposition to him is main
ly based upon the fact that he was
instrumental in keeping a party
from getting a license for a saloon
at Pahoa where he formerly lived.
Johnson is a good man and will
probably be elected in spite of the
opposition, if he wants the place.
Mixed with the liquor ring in this
connection is what is known as the
"Bitulithio Bunch." Its a sure
thing taut politics were never so
tangled as now.
POSTOFFICB RULB8. '
. The t.ew order of things which
keeps the post office closed on Sun
day is both good and bad in results.
Even the boxes are free from letters
which happen hia way on the Sab'
bath, which is bad. But it seems
good that the generally overworked
clerks in the wholesale stores who
work hard six days in the week are
lotto be forced to their stores on
Sunday to answer letters that arrive
