T OF ALL
Senator Charles A Rice, candi
dateior delegate to Congress, has
co!Srletcd what may be termed a
triumphal tour of the island of Kau
ai. He lias addressed meetings from
Kekaha to Haualei, and the atten
dance and enthusiasm shown a
each indicated more strongly than
words that this is a united Rice
community. At each individual
meeting place, without exception,
the attendance was larger bv far
than both the Kuhio and Carter
meetings combined in the same
precincts, while the enthusiasm
was incomparably greater. In fact
it may be said that Rice has taken
the island bv storm, carrying ev
erything else before him.
KEKAHA TO WAIMEA
The meeting at Kekaha was held
in front of the plantation office at
4 o'clock Friday afternoon and was
largely attended. It is said that
foujKifths of those present were
voters, which made the meeting all
the more satisfactory.
At Waimen the biggest crowd
the old town has seen in many a
day turned out at 7. m. to hear
Mr. Rice and the speakers of his
party. This was also a "voters
gathering," and from the enthusi
4m shown and expressions heard
it was a Rice meeting from end to
. en'1, '
A feature of this meeting was a
voluntary address by W. O. Crow
eil one of the most influential Ha
waiian of the district. Crowell is
interested in a bill which passed
the last legislature and was sent on
to Delegate Kuhio, providing for
an electric franchise down there.
When Kuhio was in Waimea a
couple of weeks ago, Crowell asked
him what had become of that bill,
as he had not heard of it lately,
and was astounded to have the
Delegate say he did't nou there was
such a bill This, despite the fact
that Crowell and everybody else
- ooicerned knew that Kuhio had
received the bill for presentation
n Congress! Crowell told all
lbout the matter in the meeting.
AnMiPr thine he told about was
this: A few years ago when in;
Washington. Queen Limiokaiani
wrote to Crowell and told him that
a man by his name had died short
ly befpre in the east, leaving heirs
; Wnwnii. Crowell had every rea
son, to believe that he was one of
the heirs referred to, anu wrote to
xr,,i,ir, nhnnt it. Kuhio never even
acknowledged the letter, and the
only thing he turoweu; ever re
ceived back was a bill from some
Washington lawyer for $25.00
"Of course," said Crowell,
"these are purely personal matters
and I do not state them to influence
your votes, but merely to show
i, T nnrsonallv have lost confi-
Kuhio and cannot under
any circumstances support him. I
will vote for Charles A. Rice, a
man whom I know will take care
of our interests."

HERE LAST NIGHT
The biggest gathering in Lihue
in a great while, for any purpose,
was the meeting in Hale Hooni
last evening to hear the speeches
of Chas. A. Rice and the gentle
men assisting in his campaign. It
was decidedly a "voters' meet
ing, it being estimated that three
fourths of the voters cf this big
precinct were present.
The meeting was delayed some
what at the start on account of the
earlier meeting at Kapaa which
had been unexpectedly prolonged.
However shortly before 9 o'clock
great applause starting in the rear
of the theater gave notice that the
delegate had arrived. This applause
was caught up by the big audience
and i n a second h a d spread
throughout the house.
Senator Rice made a straightfor
ward statement of the situation
and appeal for support in the pri
maries. Mr. W. H. Rice, Sr.,
made a telling speech in Hawaiian,
which was interpreted by A. G.
Kaulukou, Esq. Win. Mossman, of
Honolulu, was the other speaker.
At the close of the meeting,
Chairman Wishard invited those
who were going to vote for Chas.
A. Rice to stand up, and the whole
house arose at once. He thin ask
ed those who were not going to
vote for Mr, Rice to stand up ami
no one budged - there were none.
The meeting was an .immens;
success from every viewpoint,
and formed a fitting close to Mr.
Rice's triumphant tour of Kauai.
