During the first years of Kuliio's

a satisfactory measure of activity,
fair diplomacy and considerable
ability. It may be stated in this j
connection that he was fortunate, 1

01s of the Islands gratified his de

for another term. The results are
a matter o f recent history and
What is to be said of the future
if Kuhio is again sent to Congress?
Will he be able to ' brace up" and
give to Hawaii the service which
is of so much importance, and
which is becoming more difficult
and piobiematical as the responsi
bilities of our great cotiiitrv multi
ply in various parts of the world?
Matters have gone from bad to
worse. There is no gainsaying
that proposition. The most ardent
admirer and staunchest friend of
Delegate Kuhio must admit it. Is
tliere a hope that a change may
occur? Can Kuhio "come back?"
It might be possible, but we
doubt it. Surveying the situation
from every view - point, it seems to
us that he has "taken the count"
and that his day of usefulness in
Washington is done.
Delegate Kuhio states hiniselt
that his health improves upon his
: eUirn to Hawaii Then, tor his own
sake, also, let him stop at home.
Here in Hawaii he will receive the
full measure of that respect and
aloha which belongs to him, and will
have every opportunity of serving
his people and his country in a
worlhv manner, and in a larger de
gree, perhaps, than h e has ev
er been able to do at Washington.

iiiat it is now very doubtful that
Kuhio could be elected again even
if nominated. Oahu turned him
down in the last election and
would probably go to greater
lengths this year; while the saving
majorities of the outside islands
would, almost without doubt, be
greatly reduced. Thus, as a result
of the appeal ance of Kuhio in the
field as the party's nominee, stu
dents of the situation agree that
there would be grave danger of
the delegate-ship being lost to the

10 CONFER WITH
FRIENDS IN CITY
Senator Chas. A. Rice sailed Sa
turday afternoon for Honolulu to
confer with friends regarding the
launching ot his campaign for nom
ination as, a candidate for dele
gate to Congress. He may return
tomorrow but that will depend
largely upon the amount of work
he has found it necessary to do at
the capital in the matter.
Senator Rice is, in general, oppos
ed to the practice of paid runners
for campaign purposes; and inas
much a s considerable objection
was raised in the last campaign to
the system, it mav be that all part
ies will agree to eliminate it this
It is not the intention of the
Senator to open a headquarters at
Honolulu for the present, but he
will do so later on, when his plan
ot campaign is more definitely
FOR MISS HASTIE
One of the nicest affairs of the
week was the shower given by

daintily decorated with banana
leaves and ferns, and spent the
afternoon in sewing. Later, all
were called to the d'liing room
where a clothes line hung and
from it many, mysterious pack
ages. Mis Hasiie w n s jskrl

proved to be dainty bits of linen
and cut-glass. After the "wash"
was gathered in, refreshments of
salad, sandwiches, tea, cake an 1
