Delegate Kuhio chose last Wed

ceed himself as delegate in Con
gress, he at that time givirig out
the following vague and indefinite
statement as his "coming out"
"To the Electors of the Terri
tory of Hawaii:
"Gentlemen: The time seems
now opportune in which to express
to you my sine re appreciation of
the confidence which you have re
posed in me in the past. as evidenc
ed by six successive elections, as
your representative in the tederal
congress at Washington.
"During my long service in that
body, as your representative, it has
ever been my aim to consult your
wishes and to advance and promote
the interests of Hawaii. In this
effort I have not always succeeded
to the extent of my desires, des
pite the sincerity of my wishes and
end-- " "'ut on the whole, I be-
i' loJirlv lay chum to at
i measure of success

ly I was obliged to temporarily
abandon my duties at Washington
Jrduring the winter last past, and
upon the advice of my physician,
to seek a milder climate in the
hope of a speedy restoration of my
health, which had been there sud
denly and unexpectedly affected.
A sojourn of several weeks at Paso
Robles, in California, was disap
pointing in its effect, and I was
'.further obliged, upon medical ad
vice, to return to sunny Hawaii,
w here our own incomparable
climate has, happily, so far res
tored my health, that I may hope
to return to Washington in the
near future if the present session
of congress shall be prolonged.
"Since my return to Hawaii, I
have been urged by many loyal
friends who have supported me in
the past, to again permit my name
to go before the electors as a can
didate for re-election to congress
in November next, a n d after
mature deliberation I have con
sented to become such candidate.
"Believing as I do, that the best
interests of this Territory require
that it be represented in congress
by a Republican, and further be
vlievii'g that my experience in con
gress during nearly twelve years
'last past may be fruitful of good
results in my endeavors to further
promote the interests of Hawaii at
the nation's capital, I hereby res
pectfully announce myself as a can
didate for your suffrages at the
ensuing election; and I promise, if
you again honor me with vour
confidence, that my best endeavors
shall be exerted in your behalf.

AFTER ESTRAY COWS
Mr. Broadbent vigorously assail
ed the present condition of things
which permitted live stock to roam
at will on the public highways,
and urged the passage of resolu
tions condemning the situation.
Mr. Coney stated that this matter
was threshed out by the Legislature,
resulting in a law which applied
differently to different islands. The
Legislature had left it open, how
ever, so that the vaiious counties
could enact such regulations, as
might best suit their own peculiar
conditions. In Vus opinion it was
up to the supervisors to pass such
ordinances as would cover the
5ff. McBrvde recited the trials
and tribulations ot the supervisors
over this cattle ordinance matter.
The county attorney had worked
himself almost to the limit on it,
but had not yet evolved a tangible,
workable scheme. The speaker
wished to say that the supervisors
desired an expression from the
Chamber of Commerce on the ques
tion, in order that they might feel
certain public sentiment was be
hind them in whatever might be
W H. Rice, Jr. .speaking as head
of the police department, stated that
he was ready to enforce a law in
regard to estrays, but he had been
instructed bv the legal arm of the
government that there was no ad
equate law. His hands were, tied.
He was anxious to go ahead, but
could not take action without law
By general consent, a recess was
taken for five minutes in order to
give Mr. S. E. Hannestad (ap
pointed as a committee of one)
time in which to draft a suitable
resolution. Mr. Hannestad report
ed the following, which was adopt
ed by unanimous vote:

Chamber of Commerce uige upon
the Board of Supervisors of the
Countv of Kauai the desirability
and necessity of more stringent

AFTER HARD FIGHT
Every inch of the Kawnihnu
Makaweli baseball game, on the
grounds of the latter team, Sunday
afternoon, was both tmtested
Some costly error, were made,
while both sides went ballo)iiinr
at different time;, ruining up the
score; but in spite of that the game
kept the rooters in a fever of ex
citement. The crowd was a large one, the
weather excellent and the game
was played in unusually short
time. D. V Dean was umpire
and Harold Morgan official scorer.
There were several features of
the game, one ot the more import
ant being a two-badger by Joe
Fassoth i n the second inning,
which scored two Makaweli men
at a clip, and started a muddle
whicl gave four runs for the in
ning. A second feature was the
heavy batting of the Kawaihaus in
the sixth inning, which, coupled
with the confusion of the Maka
welis, gave them seven runs in
that frame. A third feature was a
strike for a complete home run,
made by Ambrosio in the seventh

The benefit concert given in
Lihue Social Hall Saturday even
ing for the assistance of the Ha
waiian churches in sending their
delegates to t h e convention on
Maui was a (ntinet success from
every point of view. The total
sum of S281 was netted, the ex
penses of the affair having been
provided for privately by friends.
It is to be regretted that space
forbids a detailed account of the
mauv excellent features, the con
cert being one of the most enjoy
able ever attempted locally. The
solos by Mrs. Mary Agiu- Rice,
violin contributions of M:s, l'ut
inan, Mie singing f Mi Louise
Day, Miss D ira Pieler, M;s. Louise
Sheldon. Miss Hannah .1 cobson,
and the "judicial ehorn-,", com
posed of Judges Dickey, Dole, Ka
nabec. Puuiki iind Ka vvi. were
far shove the average in point of
excellence and drew forth rounds
of minimise. The siiicint l,v the
! quartettes and choruses, as well as
the music of the Lihue Glee Club,
also assisted much in rounding out
the success of the program.
To narrowly escape death in tne
same phue and same way on suc
ceeding' dnys -was the unusual ex
perience of Mrs. E. O. Thurtell,
of Lihue, Sunday and yesterday.
She was being driven home from
the Makaweli baseball game in H.

where the Koloa Sugar Company's

again for Lihue. At identically the
same: spot one of the big passenger
trucks suddenly wheeled around
the corner and brushed along the
side of her midline before it could
be stopped, missing wrecking it by
a hair's breadth.
