Make Clean Sweep
Democrats Taken By Surprise Had
Been Confident Of Victory Kuhio
Wins In Territory By Heavy Oahu
And Maui Plurality
Maui's share in the territorial elec
tion lust Tuesday was to return a
solid victory for the repuhlican ticket.
The majorities were large much
largor than had even been hoped for.
Kwhio beat McCandless for the del
epateship by 367 votes, while Rice
defeated Ben Lyons for the senate by
147. The Fix republican candidates
for representative won in most in
stances by about two to one.
Up to the present time the returns
from the army posts on Oahu have
not been received but it is quite cer
tain they will not change the results
in any material way. The total army
vote for the territory amounted to but
712, and of these Kuhio got 428. A
tabulation of the Maul returns is
printed on page 8.
McCandless did succeed in cutting
down Kuhio's 1916 majority on Maui
very considerably. Two years ago
the latter's total was 1210 votes more
than that of the former. It is prol
bably less than 400 this year.
Democrats Take it Hard
So confident were the democrats on
Maui of winning the election this
year that a few days before the elec
tion they sent a letter to the central
committee in Honolulu predicting that
their whole ticket would be elected.
WV'en the returns beean to come in
and were posted on the big board in
front of the Maui News office, there
was immediate consternation which
f.oon developed into deepest gloom in
the local Hourbon camp.
Link Carried Wailuku
Link showed much strength in Wai
luku, receiving 1T9 votes to Kuhio's
141. He was alos a strong favorite
in Ulupalakua, where Dr. Raymond's
efforts bore plentiful fruit. lie also
led in the Keokea precinct, at Keanae1,
Kaupo and in Molokai except at the
leper settlement which Kuhio carried
by 9 votes.
Ben Lyons ran about 100 ahead of
McCandless. but generally shared
with Link the favor or disfavor of the

two years ago, losing ground in ev

hold in no small measure in the na

without exception went for McCand

Sharp Seismic Disturbance Felt Al

New Outlets For Lava
Many persons on Maui were shaken
from their slumbers about 11:30 o'
clock last Friday night, by a real
goodness-to-gracious earthquake. The
tremblor was one of the sharpest
that has been .felt on Maui for years,
making dishes In the pantry rattle
and pictures on the wall shake
ominously. No danger however, has
been reported and the disturbance did
not last long.
The quake, which probably originat
ed in connection with volcanic dis
turbances on the island of Hawaii
was more severe there than here, be
ing reported to have been one of the
heaviest in 20 years. Roads were
blocked by rocks shaken from the
hills, and a lot of stone fences in
Kau and Kona were tumbled down.

Kilauea Acts Up
The most interesting feature of the
shock is in connection with the be
havior of the lava pit in Kilauea vol
cano. The pit has been very full, and
the earthquake apparently opened a
number of large cracks in the floor of
the main crater through which lava
is flowing into parts of the big crater
that have seen no-live lava for many
years. The old stone rest house is
reported overwhelmed, as well as the
stone shelter for horses not far dis
tnat. On Oahu no less than 26 waves of
earthquake were recorded.

Maui's quota was again discussed
in the committee, and it was found
that 83 cents per capita must be rais

portion to the quota per capita of
$1.07, as is expected on the main
land, Maui should give $51,000.00 on
the basis of her population.
Disappointment is felt that the
special posters from New York had

Raymond's Peace Bond
In the second circuit court on Mon
day, Judge Burr reversed the decision
of the Wailuku district court in the
matter of J. Harvey Raymond, and
dismissed the defendant, cancelling
his bond of $500 to keep the peace.
The case originated several months
ago when Charles E. Thompson, a
rancher at Kamaole, following' a
quarrel with young Raymond over a
pasture lot, swore out a warrant for
Raymond alleging that the latter had
threatened him and asking that he be
put under bond to keep the peace.
Following a trial of the case Magis
trate McKay, granted the petition, at
the same time stating that in his
opinion the complaining witness was
in no danger of injury at the hands
of the accused.
It was on this finding that Judge
Burr dismissed the defendant and
canceled his bond. Raymond has been
on the mainland for some time past.
