PARTY IS USELESS
Moreover, It Obstructs Reforms
Aimed At By The Old Line
W. R. Castle, of Honolulu, has
written a letter, dealing with the
aims and ambitions and halluci
nations and dangers of the Progres
sive Party, which is so pertinent
to present political discussion in
the Islands that it is well worth
reading by every voter on Kauai.
Mr. Castle says:
"Mr. Atkinson's article in your
issue of the fifth is interesting as
illustrating the stand of the Roose
velt party. He begins with a seri
ous misstatement of fact in saying
while the Republican national
committee has decided to take
away Hawaii's six votes in their
national couvention, we can never
theless go on record in national
affairs in a very effective way, and
we have at least a voice in the se
lection of a President of the United
States. This is said, of course, to
induce people to join the Progres
sive party as an effective force,
rather than to remain with the Re
publican of the Territory, who, on
his say so, would be impotent.
"Whatever may be the cause re
garding the voice of Hawaii's Pro
gressive party in the nominating
convention, the statement that Ha
waii's six Republican votes have
been taken away is absolutely in
correct. That a message was sent
out here that, such might be the
case is true, but the report was un
authorized and untrue. The ques
tion Trill be decided next fall, and
assurances have been made that

Hawaii, it will have a voice and
will be expected to send delegates
to the Republican national conven
tion, where they witl have all the
powers and rights of any other de
legates. "As stated by Mr. Atkinson, the
new party presents a curious re
semblance to the Horace Greeley
party of 1872. That company of
patriots loudly proclaimed their
purity and unbounded patriotism,
and were equally certain that the
old Republican party was led by
the nose by a set of knaves and
grafters, and that virtue resided
only with them. This is the tone
of Mr. Atkinson's letter, and I am
inclined to think that most people
will agree that on the whole the
leaders, and perhaps a large part
of the rank and file of the Progres
sive party, are worthy and patrio
tic men. But this does not of itself
justify their impatient breaking
away from the party which saved
the Union, freed the slave and has
given the country unbounded pros
perity. If it had become necessary
to cleanse the Republican party, as
many of us Republicans believe to
be the case, the work could have
been and will be done by the party
itself and within its own lines.
"Some, perhaps most or all of
the principals proclaimed by the
Progressives, are after all Republi
can. It is the case of the impatient
reformer, exactly as it is seen in
the churches, in various societies
and associations. If a few very ear
nest men do not instantly succeed
in their ideas and plans of reform,
they bolt and start a new party, or
church, or society, based on the
unsuccessful, principles advocated
by the reformer, with the result
that both the original and offshoot
are weakened, and the ultimate
success of the reformation is inde
finitely postponed. This is exactly
what has happened in this case,
and will happen again. The Re
publicans and Progressives fell to
the ground, and a Democratic ad
ministration was installed in Wash
ington, to the vast injury of the

The resolution was introduced

Considerable discussion preceded

to small holdings.
