Remedies and Toilet specialties, which we

VOICE OF PEOPLE
Following is the platform com
plete as adopted bv the Republic
an Territorial Convention at Hon -
lulu last week:
The Republican party, ninenibled bv
lis duly elected representatives in Terri
torial convention, hereby declares its
iinenttnging laith in the principles as
serted and vitalized by the Constitution
oi our country.
V e renew our unswerving allegiance
to me principles of the Republican
party of the United States, and do here
by pledge our cause to the principles of
government ot the people, by the peo
pie, for the people.
The greatest mission of the Republi
can party has been to exalt the human
race, equalize political and industrial
opportunities and preserve unimpeach
able institutions of justice. Under its
progressive and constructive statesman
ship our Country has grown to be one
ol the greatest of the civilized ami
iviliziug nations. Under its admin
istrations and policies the ambitious
and industrious from other lands have
never been denied a home, the right to
freedom, entire independence in right
loing, and perfect liberty in the pursuit
nf happiness. It has alwnvs main
tained the prosperity of the nation; pro
tected the workingmnn and American
industries; promoted domestic and for
eign commerce, and has, indeed, always
upheld at home and abrond the honor
and the glory of our Country against
the vicissitudes of the times.
Under the constructive administra
tions of the Republican party, Hawaii
has developed to be a great industrial
commonwealth. Our social ami indus
Irinl institutions, which the Republican
party has so wisely fostered and de
veloped, stand forth ns a tribute to the
soundness of its policies.
The Republican party in Hawaii now,
as always, is prepared to go forward
with the solution of all questions eou
erning our many phases of life, and to
.he end that these islands may be pro
tected by its liberal, progressive and,
onstruetive policies, tt pledges its can
lidates for public office to the fulfilment
of nil its promises.
'o denounce in emphatic terms the
unwise and injurious legislation which
the Democratic party hns enacted under
the present administration, regulating the
tariff schedules, by imposing upon our
island Territory the evils of their prin
ciples of free trade, thereby producing
a demoralizing effect on the sugar indus
try, the predominant industry of the Is
lands. This legislation has caused the
values of our properties to depreciate;
compelling the suspension of tho employ
ment of hundreds of workingmen ; re
tarding the progress of business enter
prises, and creating the suffering of want
ami need in the homes of hundreds of our
workingmen. Depreciation in property
values has caused an increase in the tax
ation rates and has burdened the work
ingiren with heavier taxes, while their
wages and opportunities to work are being
That the electorate of tho Territory of
Hawaii will in November of this year, by
tho election of a Republican Delegate to
Congress, nnd Republican ofliciuls
throughout the Islands, vigorously protest
against the continuance of these disas
trous policies, we doubt not. We do ap
peal, however, to the electorate to make
that protest as nearly unanimous as pos
sible, in order that the Congress of tho
United States shall hear expressed in no
uncertain terms our belief that a con
imiiinee of the present tariff spell com
mercial ruin mid disaster for Hawaii.
The utter disregard of the Democratic
arty for the interests of the Territory
if Hawaii is likewise illustrated by its
u'tion iu cutting fifty per cent the duty
hi lice, which has for years been an
:iii iirtaiit industry within the Hawaiian
1 sluima. Owners of rice plantations here
have been forced to compete with rice
grown by the pauper labor of tho Ori-
'lit, with the result that within a corn par
itively short time, unless relief is afford-
d, the iudustiy within the Islands will be
Imost totally abandoned.
HOME RULE AND STATEHOOD.
We favor the enactment by the Con
rre.ss of the United States of laws giv-
ng to the Territorial legislature broader
,.oweis in the control of local mutters,
uid protest against the enactment of itny
'aws prescribing those powers, and thus
ittrihutiug to us a lack of capacity for
ielf government. The period is not far
ist a nt. when the question of our admis
sion as one of the states of the Union
will le an issue before Congress. When
he Republican party again assumes con
trol of national affairs, statehood foi
Hawaii may be hoped for, since the pus)
ion of that party on tho subject is well
The greater the power given to us in
l.e management of the affairs of the
I'erritory, the greater will be our op-
ortmiity for demonstrating our ability
:: successfully conduct them.
The Democratic party has openly, flag
iintly and contemptuously declared that
ininngst our electorate can bo found no
erson lit to hold public office, and has
ippoirtcd to federal positions citizens of
lawaii only in cases where required to do
;o by positive law a policy directly con
trary to an unqualified promise contained
in l heir platform. Wo vigorously protest
igaiust this attitude, and pledge ourselves
o do everything in our power to neutral
;ze the harmful and false declarations ot
i lie incoiiiH'tency of our jieople necessarily
implied liy the adoption of this course.
Wo lielieve it to lie the imperative duty
if the Republican party to secure for
'he people of Hawaii, the full coniuier
ial benefits resulting from construe! ion
if the raiiamu Canal.
To utilize these benefits, coal wharves
east be provide.l in the harbors of Jloim-i
'ulii and llilo, at points adjacent to laud
.hat can be made available for coal I
st.nagp. Wharves for over sea commerce
I ""!'! ' " provided for the use of large
i'"1 on the Lahaina coast of Maui,
M iia coast of Hawaii, and at Nawiliwili,
rvauai, 10 facilitate the economical dis
tribution and marketing of the products
of these sections of the Territory.
We pledge the Republican Delegate tn
Congress, to be elected in November, to
suppoit all projects for improvements to
imiuors wniiin tne Territory which are
proper subjects for federal' supervision,
nnd I rirtieularly the pro ect to dredge a
channel from th? Honolulu Harbor io the
Kalihi entrance to that harbor. Knowing
uiai i ue Hawaiian islands, with the com
pletion of the I'anama Canal, will be not
only in name, but in fact, the "Cross
Roads of the Pacific, " we pledge both oui
members of the next legislature and our
pelegntc in Congress, to employ all legit
imate means Jo secure aid from the gen
eral government for such improvement o:
our harbors as sir-11 enable us to proper!,
care for the increased commerce which i
bound to come by reason of the construe
lion of the I'anama Canal.

Territory of Hawaii to support the prope
CITY AND COUNTY GOVERNMENT
Greater and broader powers should b
accorded the City nnd County of Hono
lulu, ami to this end we pledge tin
1 gislativc candidates to empower, b
proper legislation, the people of Hono
lulu to revise their charter at a eonven
lion consisting of representatives to b-
chosen by the people.
LiiKe power should be granted to al
counties within the Territory should th.
legislative delegations from said countie
request the same.
We heartily favor granting to wome.
the right of suffrage. Should Congreh?
give to tho Territorial legislature th.
power to grant that right and we nleile.
our Delegate in Congress to support sucl
a law we further pledge the Republican
members or the legislature to introduci
and pass legislation for this purpose.
For the purpose of further aiding in
the great work which our public schools
are accomplishing, wo believe that our
lultlrcn should bo taught the importance
of manuel labor in fostering sound and
usetul citizenship, and thus be ready to
lead in hastening the time when the many
important tasks confronting the Territory
shall be undertaken nnd directed by Amer
ican citizens ot intelligence and loyalty.
We renew our former pledges of liberal
financial support of the public schools.
The College.' of Hawaii has made a
splendid beginning and we pledge the
Keiiulilican party to cordially support
every measure that will enable the author
ities of the college to continue the de
velopment so that the Territory shall be
worthy of the splendid endowments pro
vided under the Federal appropriations.
It is our duty as well us our privilege
and opportunity to liberally supplement
the Federal appropriations.
REFORM IN JUDK TAL PROCEDURE
Relieving that present cumbersome
and technical methods of enforcing the
law result in much injustice, delay, ex
pense, and vexation, and that the enact
ment of needed reform as to imlieiai
procedure, in both criminal and civil
matters, will not only accomplish much
desired relief, but will restore to the
courts that respect which they are ra
pidly losing by adherence to technical
rules which the spirit of this age hat
outlived, we favor the enactment of
laws which, without denying to persona
accused of crime rights to which thev
are justly entitled, shall secure a speedy
K Jaring, and a determination of guilt
or innocenci without reference to th.?
numerous technicalities now emploved
as a shield for the guilty; which shall
secure to suitors in civil matters a
speedy, inexpensive hearing on the mer
its, devoid of technicalities; and which
shall, in every Constitutional method
which can be employed, simplify exist
ing judicial procedure.
Realizing that the tendency of the
present age a tendency justified by ex
perience and study is to couido with
punishment inflicted for violation ol
law, endeavors to reform the criminal
we advoente the passage of laws seeV
ing to accomplish this end. Particular
ly do we pledge the Repiiblimn i:v. in
bers of the coming legislature to tin
support of a law which will prevent
places of confinement, from bcoming
scnoois or crime; which will not per
mit youthful offenders or persons con
victed for the first time, to be assoi iat
ed with hardened criminals. We further
pledge Republican members of the le
gislature to the support of legislation
to the end that juvenile delinquents
may be better cared for than under ex
In our platform of two years auo we

aspects the present liquor law is admir

We pledge our representatives in th
legislature to grant to the liquor com
missioners this added power.
We favor the enactment of laws r
quiring that full publicity shall be
given contrilmtiuiiN to political loinmit

REGULATION OF INSURANCE
We favor the adoption of laws relat

gislntiire to memorialize the Congress ol

WATER SUPPLY. '
The artesian water system should be
controlled by the people. To effect
proper legislation for the ultimate

the Governor and Legislature.
