Trying To Fool Voters
T1IK RLpitl lican county committee denies that it has endorsed any
candidates. This is as a matter of course. The party orgniza
tioii CANNOT TAKi; sini:s with any candidate or group of candi
dates. It stands for the party as a whole. The small group of men
who form the executive committee, even were they so disposed, would
never think of such a move, because they know they couldn't make it
stick. It would have no weight. Any can i i i .tk who c.i i'.s this

want to trust this kind of a man l make their laws?
On Remembering the Main Issue
TIIICRK is just one real danger that Maui republicans have toguard
against. That danger is the losing sight of the real issues of the
coming campaign. Thus far there has been perfect harmony in
the ranks, because every republican could galdly sulcribc to the prin
ciples for which the party in Hawaii has declared itself.
Now there are signs that some are losing sight of the end to be at
tained. Some are allowing selfish motives to interfere with their best
loyaHy to party and good government. Uccause certain persons ate
alleged to have done this or that, other persons are urging retaliatory,
This will not do. It is not patriotic. It is not the proper spirit. If
you do not like the way things are bein.tr handled, say so, and work for
what you believe is right. I'.ut in the name of harmony do not be
misled by arguments that might weaken the party's strength.
The enemies of republicanism are but too anxious to foster a weak
ness that may profit them later. A democratic county committee meet
ing was held this week. The report has now gone out that the Maui
democrats will have but two men in the field. an:l will throw the bal
ance of their strength to republican candidates. And the republican
candidates they propose to support, are the candidates who think they
have a grievance, ami to get themselves elected, wotdd lend themselves
to the enemy to the defeat of their own party. Also these democratic
schemers plan to support Kuhio in the primal ies. not for the purpose
of helping him. but because the word has gone out that Rice is more
than likely to be elected in the primary. By helping split the Republi
can strength, they insure McCamllcss, their real candidate, a chance in
A similar scheme is also being worked by the Progressives, and for
like reason. Maui voters are being urged by the Carter henchmen to
vote for anybody except Rice for delegate in the primaries.
A united Republican front is the greatest fear of both McCamllcss
and Carter. Their only chance is in a split in the republican ranksthat
may give them a chance. Hut they will never get this chance if every
republican voter will consider only the big things the things that really
count in this campaign. They are two
First: To send a man to Washington as delegate who will stay on
the job and get things done. That man is Rice. It is not Kuhio, for
he has hud ten years in which to prove himself, and he has not made
good. He has discredited the Hawaiian people in Washington.
Second: To support for the legislature, only republican candidates
w ho are big enough to not to try to "throw down" their own parly be
cause they may think some one has not treated them right. The candi
date who will openly or secretly ally himself with the enemy for the
sake of getting the nomination at the expense of his party, is certainly
not the man to be trusted to help frame the laws of this territory.
Tiiosic who don't believe in going to any pains to please the
tourist, may be surprised to learn that the Canadiaiv Pacific Railroad is
planing to route all of its trans-Pacific vessels by way of Hawaii, solely
for the purpose of making the trip more attractive to the patrons of the
line. This news comes through the New York Commercial, of July
13. If the plan is carried out, it will mean that the great liners, Km
press of Japan, I Cm press of India, and Km press of China, will call re
gularly at Honolulu, and possibly at Hilo, on their voyages between
Vancouver and the Orient. This route is considerably longer and
more expensive than is the present great circle route followed, but it is
also much more comfortable.
To the Republican Voters of Main:
It has come to the attention of the Republican County Com
mittee that the impression is abroad that some of the Candidates
for election r.t the Primary Kleclion have been endorsed by some
of the Republican Precinct Clubs.
This is not correct.
All Candidates who have announced themselves or who have
had their names put up at a Precinct Club meeting as out for
nomination on the Republican ticket will be given equal consid
eration ky the party organization.
The County Committee notified each Precinct Club to see to
it that at least one candidate for nomination on the Republican
ticket was put up in each district as has been the previous cus
tom so-that there wotdd not be less than six men in the field on
the Republican ticket at the Primaries.
Where there are more than the required number of candidates
in the field no candidate has been endorsed or will be endorsed
by the Party organization until after the Primaries, believing
that in order to carr out the spirit of the Primary each Candi
date for election should conduct his own campaign thereby giv
ing each one an equal chance.
All Republican Precinct Clubs in the County have been noti
fied to that effect.
