About The Bull Moose
&:on:e R. Carter, the heftier
half of the Progressive Party in
Hawaii, has been addressing small
Kauai audiences and making what
is sometsmes called a "house to
house" canvas here since last Wed
nesday. In his own wfyls he has
' made speeches wherever lie "could
get A crowd'', which extended from
t(Sr?teps of the plantation store at
Makaweli and the roadside near
the Hanapepe bridge to the more
pretentious Social Hall in Lihue.
Meetings were held at Waimea

Thursday afternoon, Makaweli
Thursday evening, Hanapepe Fri
day evening, Lihue Saturday even

Koloa Sunday evening and Kapaa
last evening. Tomorrow the form
er governor will appear at Haualei.
Mr. Carter's campaign on Kauai
has been vigorous in only one particular-the
work of "drumming"
up audiences. He has written let
ters to the more prominent people
at every place he has visited, soli
citing their presence at his meet
ings, and has used the telephone a
gre-Jleal for the same purpose.
His k, t:eches, have been, apparent
ly, -extemporaneous, and in the
opini on of many have lacked cam
paign fire and earnestness, have
been half-hearted, if you will. A
commendable feature has been the
absence of abuse of other caiidi.

' -''ftie'-meeting in Liliue Saturday-
r evening was a fair sample ot an.
T-here were exactly 47 people
present, including the governor's
party of four and a number of la
dies. It is safe to say that every
vote present was pledged, sealed
and ready for delivery to Chas. A.
Rice-a fact which probably sug-.
gested itself to the Progressive
candidate. At a same time Mr.
Carter was listened to with due
respect and earnestues.
In opening, Mr. Carter reviewed
the causes which, to his mind,
made the Progressive Party neces
sary, and then took a fall out of
the system of paid runners, free
booze, etc., which he considered to
be one of the curses of the other
parties. He had it figured out that
them was a chance for the Progres
siveVaity to hold the balance of
power in the next Senate, and, in
consequence, it might be a good
thing for Hawaii to " play in"
Yj'ith that party. He said he
fought there was still chance to
influence President Wilson on the
right side in the matter of sugar

father as having successfully nego

BASEBALL PLAYER 1
Francisco IJuenaflor, a Filipino
belonging t o Chas. Aki's camp
near Lawai, was hit over the head
with a baseball bat in the hands of
one Isabello de la Cruz at Home
stead at about noon Sunday and
died in the Koloa hospital at 11
o'clock that night.
De la Cruz is under arrest and
will be charged with manslaughter.
The Filipino team from the
camp had gone over to play a game
of baseball with the Portuguese
team of Kalaheo. During thi game
the victim of the acident, who
was playing first base, made a wild
throw to third as a result of which
all of the runii'TS scored. Antonio
Pangelina the catcher, gave IJuen
aflor a scvere"caITing down for his
wild throw, and there was a hot
argument De la Cruz at that junc
ture stepped up from behind, be
ing ready to go to bat, and entered

l)im : "You are another one always
accusing me; I can lick either one

but to stop him. as he was evident

MERELY ' SOWiNC THEEWIND
The following letter has been re
ceived in reply to the arguments
advanced by Prottssive Leader
George R. Carter in Lihue Hall
. Kiutok Garuun Island:
On behalf of the people on this
side of the island of Kanai, I wish,
through your valuable paper, to
thank Mr. Carter, candidate lor
Delegate to Congress on the Pro
gressive ticket, for his clear expo
sition of the great principles for
which his party stands, as well as
for w h at it i s opposed to.
Heretofore we have as have the
majority of the people on the main
land, been under the delusion that
our destinies and welfare could be
best served and protected by either
the Republican or Democratic par
ty, and notwithstanding attempts
made by various dissatisfied peo
ple in the past to establish a party
to supercede these old parties, such
as the Poi ulist, Socialist, etc., and
later the Progressives, the majority
of the electorate on the mainland
have steadily maintained the su
premacy of the old parties.
Knowing that nothing is y e t
perfect, not even a political party,
it has ever been the desire and
wish of those affiliating with these
parties, and particularly those hav
ing the best interests of'tlitj people
.rat heart, to-correct the evifsex!st-
ing within the party, from time lo
time, rather than to break from
them because ot personal grievance
and disorganize the whole govern
ing system which has required
years to build up to its present
S'.ate of perfection. These leaders
have fully realized that many years
would be required to organize and
buiid up a new party to the present
state of either of the old parties
and that in the meantime much
suffering would b e experienced
throughout the entire land.
For those on Kauai who have
not been able to appreciate or un
derstand the great principles for
which the Progtessive Party claims
t) stand, or its reasons for exis
tence, I will enumerate a few of
the most important On the main
land, according to Mr. Carter, the
main hindamentai principles, are:

At the convention ot the Repub
lican Party held in Chicago in 1912
when Mr. Roosevelt refused t o
abide by the result of its delibera
tions and forthwith called a "Rump
Convention" and organized the
Progressive Party, he then express
ed a willingness to break from the
Republican Party of which he had
always been a leading member,
and would accept the nomination
for President by the Progressives
Pif the same was tendered to him.
At this convention it was decided
to start an educational campaign
of the masses as to the importance
of the great principles for which
the Progressives stood, enumerated
alone. This educational campaign
has now been on for nearly two
years and I have no hesitation in
saying that it is" the most costly
campaign the people of the United
States have been obliged to submit
to. In Hawaii it will cost at least
! $50,000,000, or $250.00 for every
jman, woman and child in the Ter
ritory, and how much more no one
can tell. The cost of this educa
tion is in addition to the usual oi
regular education in the three Rs.

Mr. Hannestad and party of

was Hearing nightfall and the ma
chine was being driven at a pretty
tvelv clip tit order to rach Lihue
before dark. At a point near Wai
tia a tire blew out, the machine
ikidded and ran head first in'o a

A front wheel was smashed and
the machine was otherwise dam

were picked up by other passing

It is considered fortunate that
the stone wall was there, for it
probably saved the auto from goitig

TENNIS CAES AT
A most delightful afternoon was
spent bv all who attended the ten
nis tournament at Kilauea last Sun
day. In most pleasant contrast to
the previous attempt to play of!
the games in Lihue, the weather
proved quite ideal, bright sunshine
prevailing throughout the after
noon. The first game played was the
men's doubles; Conrad Ahrens and
H. lladfield playing for Kilauea.
Their opponents were Robt. Purvis
and Albert Horner, Jr., for Lihue.
The latter won a rather easy
victory, the score being 6-0. 6 2.
The second game, which was
begun shortly after four o'clock,
was between Mrs. Scott and Mr.
IJuchholtz, fcr Kilauea, and Mis-.
Purvis and Mr. Hannestad, for
Lihue. Tins proved to be a very
close and hard fought contest,
inanv exceptionally fine plays by
both sides creating much applause
from the well-filled sidelines. The
first set went to Lihue 6 4; while
the home te.un amused the honors
of the seco id and third sets, the
score being 6 4, 6 4. A. Horner,

before the party broke up.

three innings the play was tight

Makavvelis got two more men over
the plate, after which the game
tightened down to beautiful play

Sick Tots Remembered
Stiiubv, July 12, Miss Albright
and a number of little girls visited
the Lihue hospital, bringing a
very pretty and comfortable rock
ing chair for convalescent babies.
Tied to the back were three small,
washable dollies and a paper tell
ing that the chair was a gift to
"the little shut - ins" from the lit
tle, "learners and helpers." The
members of the Sunday School
class giving the chair were: Alice

rine Morjgne, Isalella Hogg,
James Hogg, Henrietta Wedeiney

and Sain Wilcox.
Mi Alexander, the portrait ar
tist who toured Kauai some months
ago, expects to return to the island
next week for the completion of
his professional engagements here.
His studio of late has been at the
Royal Hawaiian Hotel.
H, W. Kinney, superintendent
of Education, states that an entire
ly new site has been made availa
ble for the proposed school at the
Waipouh homesteads If this deal
goes through (and the superinten-
dent thinks that it will) there will
be ample land for the site, and
work upon the building may go
ahead without delay.
