Unless the official returns from the
Ulupalakua precinct, which will not In
to until today, and a canvas of the
total irotes cast m a number of other
precincts proves to be Incorrect, all
but four of tlio county offices were
legally filled at the primary election
held last Saturday. Three out of the
four positions on the Doard of super
visors failed to receive a majority of
the total votes cast, and the nominees
for these places must make, their final
race at the regular May election.
Good Vote Polled.
According to the present count 2Q53
votes weie polled in tho county out of
a total registration of 2603. Under tho
primary law, a candldato for nomina
tion receiving a majority of the votes
cast is declared elected. Although
Sam Kalama did not receive such maj
ority, ho is as good as elected, not
having a democratic opponent In his
race for chairmanship of the board.
E. It. Bevins, whose vote amounted
to 1030, has only 7 votes to spare, ac
cording to the present figures, if he Is
to escape a contest with his demo
cratic opponent, Eugene Murphy, for
tho placo of County Attorney.
Wilcox for auditor and Baldwin for
treasurer, had 1414 and 1415 votes res
pectlvcly,rand had no opponents.
Clem Crowell beat Charlie Lako for
sheriff by a vote of 1283 to 591; and
William Fred Kaab defeated J. N. K.
, Kcola, 1188 to 609.
Davo Fleming led among tho super
visors with a total of 1081, with Drum
mond a close second with 995.
May Not Take Chances.
It is possible that tho candidates
thus apparently elected, will not take
chances on a number of ambiguous
points In tho law, but will regularly
qualify and stand for the regular elec
tion, unless an opinion from the Su
premo Court can be obtained in the
meantime that Is satisfactory. For
instance there Is uncertainty as to
what is meant by a majority of the
votes cast. Somo hold that it means
a majority of voters who cast a bal
lot. Others think that all ballots
WILL ATTEND FAMILY REUNION.
Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Lufkin will leavo
on tho Manoa early next month for
the Coast, to bo gone for about two
months. After taking In tho Fair at
San Francisco, they will go east,
where they will attend tho annual
family reunion In celebration of Mr.
Lufkln's mother's birthday, In Nor
mal, 111., on May 10. Sho will at that
timo be 90 years of age, and Is still
well and active. Mrs. Lufkin visited
Maul In 1902, and although 72 years
of age mado the trip to tho summit of
Haleakala with great enjoyment.
Accompanying Mr .and Mrs. Lufkin
to tljo coast will bo Miss Macfarland
and Miss Smith, who havo boon In

unusually pleasant affair, aud well at

enthusiastic ones until past midnight.
thrown out for cause must be deduct
ed from this, which it is known would
make a considerable difference. It
Is believed (hat tho Inspectors of elec
tion also experienced confusion on
this point, so the 2053 given as the
total vote cast, Is far from certain.
Inspectors Make Errors.
That tho meaning of the law was
not clearly understood is evidenced by
the returns mado in both the Puunene
precinct and tho Hamakuapoko pre
cinct, notwithstanding the undoubted
ly high mental equipment represented
on both of these boards of inspectors.
In Puunene, under the head of "tot'U
votes cast" was given 2095, while, the
registered vote In the preclncl Ih but
311; whllo at Hamakuapoko, under
tho samo heading, tho officia! return
shows 1601 votes cast for a registra
tion of 263.
Probably the biggest surni i te of the
day was the big majority secured by
E. R. Bevins over Dan .;asc for couu'
ty attorney. Up to tho time the re
turns began to come in on Saturday
evening, Case's friends were evidently
sincere In their expressed confidence
of his victory ;and even his opponents
were apparently surprised by the land
slide when It started.
Central Maul Lost Out.
A goo'd deal of dissatisfaction is to
bo heard over the fact that the re
publicans on Central Maul failed to
land a single, nominee for the board
of supervisors, whllo Lahaina district
has two, Hana onet- and Molokai one,
For this reason it is asserted by some
that there is to be a general non-par
tlsatfrally around Pla Cockett and Dr.
Raymond at the regular election, In
an effort to land them on the board
as Deipocratic candidates
George Weight, of Wailuku, by the
returns lasl Saturday night was only
four votes behind Uahlnui, but Inter
returns have Increased the latters
majority to 65 all through tho officlnl
returns from tho Molokai precincts.
Weight is considering contesting Mir

DEATH OF PROMINENT MOLOKAI
Mrs. Koleka Kapaehaolo .widow of
the late A. P. Kapaehaole, who was
representative from Molokai for sov.
eral sessions during tho monarchy,
died at her homo at Halawa, Molokai

1C, aged about 52 years. Sho is sur

Edith D. and Violet K. Keola.
A sampan was sent over to Lahaina
where Miss Keola boarded it and pro
coeded to Molokai.
Tho dbceased is a member of one
of tho oldest and most respected fam

MAUI ELKS' ROUND-UP TONIGHT

tho local merchants, tho Haiku Farm
ers' Asspciatlon, at a meeting held on
Wednesday evening, refused to back
up the Kula Farmers' Association In
resolutions recently adopted by the
last named body. These resolutions,
as published In full in last weeki-'

There was considerable discussion
over the matter by the members of

to endorse the resolutions was finally
voted down. The meeting was a rmall

WHO WILL BE THE SACRI
FICE? If Fleming Is declared elected
by the primary vote, but three
of tHe four places on the board
of supervisors remain to be fill
,ed.. But there are four demo
cratic candidates nominated.
Question: Which of the four is
to get the ax?
Apparently there is no solu
tion of this problem in the law.
Also if the democrats dump Na
kl, their low man, It will
strengthen Uahinul, the republi
can candidate, both being Molo
kai candidates.. There is a good
deal of speculation among the
politicians as to how this tan
gle will be handled.
DEATH OF CAPTAIN ROBERTS.
James Roberts, captain of police at
Lahaina, and for fifteen years con
nected with the Maul police force,
died about 2 o'clock Wednesday af
ternoon at tho Malulanl hospital, Wai
luku, where he had been 'confined for
several months. Ho was about 36
years of age, and is survived by a
wife and three children. The funeral
which took placo on Thursday at La.
halna, was very largely attended.
Tho deceased was a native of La.
nai, and had lived practically all of
his life on Maul, Ho was considered
one of the best olllcers on the. Maul
police force, and was universally
liked,, Tho illness which finally re.
suited in his death has been of long
standing, and necessitated a numl n
of operations, which however, were
unable to restoro him to health. The
widow and children havo the rmcrnl
sympathy of all.
WOMAN SUFFRAGE LEADER VIS
Mrs. Alice Parks, one of tho lead
ing workers for tho Woman Suffrage
movement ill tho United States, spent
several days on Maul this week. Mrs.
Park, whose homo is in Palo Alto, has
been in Honolulu for a month or more,
whero sho has addressed various or
ganlzatlons on woman suffrage, on
child welfare, and world's peace, In
all of which movements she. Is prom

WHY CASE DIDN'T GET ELECTED.
"I've discovered the reason I didn't
got elected," declared Dan Case, the
day after tho big March snow-slido,
"and I'm dead sure It's right I dldn'i
get enough votes!"
Smith Just Simply
Can't Stay Straight
Out of Jail, With Good Job and
Friends to Help Him, He Jumps
to Hilo With Other's Property
Pilikia For Him if He Comes Back
Fred L. Smith, who po3ed as Sen
ator Warren's son and as suqh pars
ed a worthless check upon :ho First
National Bank of Wailuku somo
months ago, Is likely to be In further
trouble. Following his release from
jail a few weeks .ago, after Bervlnp
his sentence, ho was given assistance
by a number of Wailuku persons, and
finally landed a job with Enders Gar
age. But in about two weeks ho dls
appealed, and with him went about
?28 ,ln money which Mr. Enders had
iTdvanccd him, besides a quantity of
tools and a suit case.
It has been learned that Smith wont
from here to Hllo, and so far as is
known, is still there. It has also come
to light that tho Itcv. J. C. Vllliers
wan nlso stung by Smith. Tho dis
appearance of a number of automo
bile tubes from tho county garage,
where Smith .worked as a trusty dur
ing his incarceration, is also coinci
dent with his leaving.
Smith is said to be a fair mechanic
and a very handy man, but he isn't
wanted on Maui. According to the
police, ho will probably not bo dis
turbed unless he returns here of his
own accord. 1

MAKAWAO LITERARY NEXT
