- The most important development today has been the demand of
Germany op Belgium that the German troo.is be allowed to cross its
territory to French frontier This was in the nature of a twelve-hours
ultimatum. The promise was made that Belgian integrity would not
be impaited and that at the end of the war Belgium would be compen
sated. Belgium refused. The German dinlomats are seeking British
neutrality by offering to refrain from using the German navy against
the French coast as the price of that neutrality.
Great enthusiasm prevails in London, with the war spirit domi
nant in the air. Englishmen and Frenchmen marched before Bucking

COMPLETE TBUB OF KAUAI
Like The Prize-Fighter Who Has Not Made
Good And Disappoints His Friends, He
Tries To Explain And Appeals For
"just One More Chanst."
Delegate J. K. Kalanianaolt ar
rived at Nawiliwili by the Kinati
last Wednesday morning and re
turned to Honolulu .Saturday
night, after making a quick can
vass of that part of Kauai between
Hanalei and Kekaha. He was ac
companied by Rev. Stephen L.
Desha, who is his first lieutenant
in the campaign; and John P, Ha
le, also, of Hilo who was formerly
a member of the House of Repre
sentatives. Accompanying the party from
Honolulu was County Clerk J. M.
Kaneakua, and after landing the
party repaired to Kaneakua's
house in Lihue for breakfast. After
breakfast Kuhio, Desha and Hale
left.ituan automobile for Waiuiha.
On the'way they stopped' and talk
ed to gangs of road laborers and
even individuals whom they met.
At Waiuiha a meeting was held
in the office of the Waiuiha Hui,
in the afternoon, and was attended
by a number of natives living in
the neighborhood. After this meet
ing was over, the paity dropped
back to Hanalei where a meeting
was held in the old native church.
When the party passed through
Hanalei way, runners were sent
out to gather up an audience and
they succeeded i n mustering a
pretty fair crowd (a gooSTinany,
however, being Rice sympathiz
ers.) At the close of the meeting
the audience rose and sang "Ha
waii Ponoi," as a special compli
ment to Kuhio.
Leaving Hanalei foi Kapaa, the
party had consideiable auto trou
ble, finally, breaking down near
Kilauea. They started out to walk,
but were luckily overhauled by an
other machine and taken to Ana-
hola, where they secured a big auto
and continued on to Kapaa, arriv
ing there, however, an hour late.
At Kapaa a few people were
found standing around in China
town, and the meeting was open
ed in front of the coffee shop there,
gradually a crowd of fifty or more
assembled, some being Rice people
from Lihue, who had gone over in
autos to hear what the Delegate
had to say. There were a few Ha
waiiaus, but the majority seemed
to be Portuguese, etc.
Fernandez has secured the ser
vices of the famous Aflague Sis

latest songs and dances of the day.
Their dates will be as follows:
Hale Hooui, Lihue, August 6, 7
and 8; Koloa hall, August 10 and

places to be announced later. The

Here Prince Kuhio dwelt prin
cipally upon the planks in Repub
lican platforms of former years
which endorsed his work in Wash
ington, and read these various
planks, from his second term up
to two years ago. He also laid
stress upon the fact that some of
the men responsible for those lau
datory planks in the platforms
were now against him, and asked
why. "Do you think that is right?',
Desha, in his remarks, was sar
castic and personal, and xdid not
make a good impression at all.
After the meeting the party ad
journed to the residence of J. M.
Kaneakua where they spent the

A small meeting was held at Ke
kaha, where the Hue of talk was
prettv much the same as elsewhere.
Returning to Waimea, a meeting
was held that evening in front of
the court house, attended by about
2D0 persons-haoles, Hawaiians,
Chinese, etc, This was the biggest
meeting up to that time, Kuhio
spoke entirely in Hawaiian, as he
did at most of his meetings on that
side of the island.
On Friday, the Prince and party
addressed a party at the roadside
in Hanapepe and at night appear
ed in the Kula hall in Koloa. At
the latter place there was a fair
sized audience-mixed. All the way
over from Kekaha, individuals and
groups of m e u were talked to
wherever the could be found.
A big crowd gathered at the Na-
wiliwili landing Saturday atter-
noon, the regular attendance be
ing augmented by niauv haoles and
.' Hawaiians who came especially to
hear the speeches of Kuhio and
Desha. The speeches were deliver
ed from the roadside in front of
the Nawiliwili saloon. Kuhio re
peated the old story about the en
dorseinents he had received in the
past, and declared that he h a d
done everything in Congress that
any mortal man could do. lie speci

This statement was made in the office
of THE GARDEN ISLAND Saturday after
noon by J. P. Cooke, head of Alexander
and Baldwin, agents for Makawcli plants-
ion, the McBryde Sugar Company and
Ihe Kauai Railway Company.
In view of rumors to the effect that
Mr. Cooke was lukewarm on the candida
cy of Mr. Rice, he was asked for a flat-
ooted, unqualified statement of his posi
tion for the information of his friends on
Kauai, and he dictated the above reply.
Continuing, Mr. Cooke said: "I am un
qualifiedly opposed to Kuhio, for I believe
hat his usefulness at Washington is done.
n Charles A. Rice, we have a man who
can represent the Republican party and all
interests of this Territory acceptably and
well, and I want to see him elected."
Asked what he would do in case Rice
should be defeated in the primaries, Mr.
Cooke shrugged his shoulders doubtfully.
"I would even then under no circumstan
ces support Kuhio, and I would not sup
port McCar.dicss. In fact I guess I would
be left about as many others would be
left-high and dry. Rut it will not come to
that. Rice will be the nominee of the Re
publican party, and he will be elected."
