Will Begin Active Work On Maui Next Saturday
Other Candidates Alarmed Plans to
The surprising strength which
Senator Clias. A. Rice is showing
in his campaign, has created some
thing of a panic in all other party
camps. Under the new primary
law a candidate, receiving the ma
jority of all the votes cast in the
primary, is declared elected to the
office, without further contest. To
prevent Rice's election in this way,
both McCandlesg and Carter are
doing all they can to split up the
republican vote. McCandlcss is
reported to have admitted his fear
of Rice's winning in the primary,
and to have straightway started for
Hawaii County to try to undo some
of the Kauai man's work there.
Here on Maui everything possi
ble is being done to confuse the
issue, and to turn the attention of
the voters from the real issues, to
personalities. According to the
plans of the leaders, the attack' is
to be made on Rice from three an
gles. Kuhio is of course making
his own fight for the republican
nomination. The Democrats of
Maui are to vote for Kuhio, in or
der to weaken Rice; and the Pro
gressive party is urging votes for
anybody except Rice. The result
of all this will be to keep the popu
lar Kauai senator from winning in
the primaries, and thus give Mc
Candlcss and Carter a pltance in
the regular election.
puring the past week Rice has
been campaigning on Oahu, and
has been receiving very strong sup
port in ahriost every part of the
Island. At Kailua the women at
tending the meeting declared for
Rice, and promised a full male
vote for him when September 12th
rolls around. At Kaneohe, Ka
haua, Laie, and other places on
windward Oahu, very large crowds
attended the meetings, and the
conviction is growing that Rice
has already won the nomination as
far as Oahu is concerned.
IIUSY WIIBK ON MAUI PLANNED
Senator Rice will arrive on Maui
for a thorough campaign, next
Saturday morning. As will be not
ed by the advertisement of his
itinerary, published on another
page of this issue, he plans to cover
pretty nearly the entire island be
fore he leaves- He will probably
be accompanied by his father, W.
II. Rice, who has been acting as
internrnter for his sou. and addres
singHawaiian audiences on the
Senator's behalf. Mr. Rice, senior,
is said to have a command of the
lawaiiau language, that is equaled
by but few of the present day
native Ilawaiians themselves, and
he is always accorded the closest
attention when he talks.

Both Kuhio and George R. Car
ter have been campaigning on
Maui all this week. They both
came over on the Claudine on
Tuesday morning, and went at
once to Hana, where each got busy
with the electorate. The Claudine
made a special trip on Wednesday
morning from liana to Kaupo for
the benefit of the stumpers, who
spoke to fair sized crowds in both
Kaupo and Kipahula.
The Prince returned by the boat
to Kahului on Wednesday, but the
Progressive candidate remained in
the Hana district, and is said to
have been making quite an impres
sion on the natives through his
house to house canvass plan. This
is a new wrinkle, and according to
word from the district, it seems to
be working well. Carter addressed
a meeting Thursday afternoon at
2 o'clock, in front of the Hana
court house, and the same evening
at Nahiku. Yesterday he went on
Keanae over the diich trail, and is
expected back in Wailuku today.
Kuhio spoke to moderate sized
audiences at Pauwela and Paia on
Wednesday, and to another gather
ing at Waihee on Thursday night.
Last night the Orpheum was well
filled with those who wished to

One Horse Killed and Three Young
People Have Exceedingly Narrow
Escape. Broken Wagon Tongue
Started Runaway. '
Their automobile wrecked by the
wild charge of' a team of fright
niaddened horses. R. C. Bowman,
of Wailuku, and Miss Elsie White
and Miss Coupe, of Paia, escaped
death or serious injury by the nar
rowest margin, while driving just
above Paia, on Monday night. One
of the horses of the team was killed
by the impact. It apparently went
entirely over the car, as its bocly
was found directly behind, immedi
ately after the accident. The team
was owned by the Tain Chong store,
Mr. Bowman and the two young
ladies were returning from the
beach at the time of the accident,
which occurred iust above the Paia
school, on the Makawao road. The
team had become frightened by the
pulling loose of the wagon tougue.a
short distance below the Paia church
and the Japanese driver was unable
to hold them. Dragging the broken
tongue, the frantic animals were
coming down the road at a terrific
rate, when Bowman first saw them
by the lights from his car, and
swerved as far as possible to the
right. The left hand horse struck
the front of the car with great force,
smashing the left hand lamps, fen
der, radiator and windshield. The
upholstery was torn and left frame
work of the left seat of the run
about, which was the one occupied
by the young ladies, was broken
and spattered with blood.
Aside from a few slight scratches
from flying glass, and a great
fright, all of. the party escaped
without any injury.
