THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, JULY 5, 1918.
OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
A man said to be pro-Hun has had
his whiskers pulled. We know of
p.evcral supposed pro-Huns around
Honolulu whose mustachlos offer
first-class hand-holds for pugnacious
Both daily papers are becoming
much worked up over the possibility
that Mr. L. L. McCandless will seek
the nomination as candidate for del
egate at the coming party primaries.
They take it for granted that he will
run, although he has not as yet ex
pressed his intentions in this matter.
Alternately they cajole and pour
cheap ridicule upon him, in the one
case trying to jolly him into their way
of thinking and in the other case try
ing to bluff him into keeping out of
We have no means of knowing
whether Mr. McCandless Intends to
enter the Delegateship contest this
year; probably he will make his de
cision as to this when he has consult
ed with the leading members of the
Democratic party, and has fully sized
up the outlook. . Most people, how
ever, will wonder ', why. these Repub
licau papers are so deeply interested
in seeking to prevent Mr McCandless
from again contesting . the Delegate
ship. And the answer that will' Im
mediately suggest Itself la that under
the changing political conditions that,
now exist In this Territory, together
with the bad odor Into which Kuhlo
has fallen with many of his own peo
ple, there is an extremely strong pro
bability that, on this occasion, if Mr.
McCandless makes the race, he will
The injection of Dr. Raymond In
to the Delegateship is merely another
of those hoary-whiskered tricks so
often resorted to locally to create dis
sension and Bplit the Democratic
party into factions. Such efforts as
these are very necessary on tho part
of "our friend the enemy," because
never in the history of the
local Democratic party has there been
a more united and harmonious spirit
in the party than at the present mo
ment, and never have the members
shown such an Intense and unselfish
desire to forget the individual and
work only for the policies of the
party, cutting out petty differences in
favor of the larger good.
We venture to say if Mr. McCand
less decides not to enter the contest
for the delegateship on this occasion,
he will give his wholehearted and un
divided support to whomever may re
ceive the nomination at the primaries
in fact, that he will do to other Dem
ocrats as he would have other Dem
ocrats do to him.
The Democratic party deeply ap
preciates the tremendous financial
sacrifices made by Mr. McCandless
in carrying aloft the banner of Dem
ocracy in so many hard-fought con
tests. If he decides to enter the con
test again, as we hope he will, It
must be conceded, for the reasons
above set forth, as well as for many
others, that the balance of probability
preponderates in his favor this time.
With Mr. McCandless as our delegate
we would have a real live wire at
Washington, a man in sympathy with
the Administration, and who for that
reason would be able to secure enor
mous advantages denied to us now,
because we are so sadly unrepresent
ed or misrepresented, whichever you
may wish to call it, by the present
rubber-stamp incumbent of the office.
WHILE YOU HELP
Raymond Will Make Hot Race
If Dr. Raymond really becomes a
candidate for delegate the "if" Is a
large factor he is a formidable op
ponent for Link McCandless to meet
In the primaries, and if he gets the
Democratic nomination he would givo
give Kuhlo perhaps the hardest fight
the Republican delegate has had for
six years. Dr. Raymond is a presever-
Ing campaigner and a combined Dem
ocracy would give him strong back
ing in the November election. Mc
Candless could make a ten-strike for
his party now if he would support
Raymond at the primaries and thuB
send him Into the November fight
with no factional troubles, bred in the
preliminaries, to prevent the Dour
bons from putting all their strength
behind their candidate. Star-Bulletin.

similar action in his official capacity.
