THE LIHUE HALL
The candidates for nomination on
the Republican ticket for the Legis
lature appeared before a mixed
audience in Lihuc Social hall Fri
day evening. II. D. Wishard, chair
man of the Board of Supervisors,
presided and A. G. Kaulukou offi
ciated as interpreter. An orchestra
of Hawaiian musicians supplied the
usuai essential in the intermissions,
i In his opening remarks Chairman
yA Wishard stated that each speaker
:i .-would be limited to fifteen minutes,
after which he introduced Chas. H.
Wilcox, candidate for the House.
Mr. Wilcox stated that he was
not a public speaker. He was a can
didate for the House of Representa
tives in response to a sence of duty
as a good citizen. He had no bones
to pick in the Legislature; no axes
to grind. He wanted to go there to
see that the money of the people
would be expended in the proper
way. Mr. Hughes states that he is
not looking for a political future.
The speaker was also not seeking
political advantage. M.r. Wilcox
called attention to the other candi
dates seeking votes at the primary,
and dwelt particularly upon the
long and splendid record of J. 11.
Coney in the Legislature conclud
ing this part of his speech by say
inir flint if the audience voted for
him (Wilcox) he would also prefer
that they vote for Coney. From
that point he made an appeal to
the effect that no small or personal
grudge be permitted to influence
voters. The Democratic candidates
were nominated already. They had
no opposition. With the Republi
cans there were more candidates
than places to be filled, in conse
quence of which they were fighting
between themselves. Ho requested
his hearers to vote Republican in
the primary, and if any weroDemo

Upon his return to Honolulu
Japanese Consul Moroi gave to the
press the following highly interest
ing opinions concerning Japanese
labor conditions on this island:
I have spent 12 days on Kauai
and during that time 1 met more
than 5000 Japanese men and women
and also their children. This was
my first visit to that island. I in
spected every plantation where our
people are employed. I am more
than satisfied with conditions on
the plantations. The laborers arc
also pleased with their treatment. I
have heard often about the bonu
question since I have been here,
but there was no talk about the
system on Kauai. The laborers did
not make any complaint to me.

very complimentary as to the show

The following is an extract from
letter of a Kauai man, just received:

County Clerk J.M. Kaneakua kept
his office open until 12 o'clock last
Tuesday night for the registration
of voters. At the close 1358 names
were on the great register. In the
last election a little more than 1,100
voted, out of a total of 1,250. Elim
inating known absentees, etc., it
is figured that the actual vote in
tho primary will bo around 1,100.
COMING TO U
General Robert K. Evans, com
mander of the Department of Ha
waii, U. S. Army, will arrive on
Kauai tomorrow morning and will
remain here until Saturday. Jie
will be accompanied by his aide de
camp, liieut. Jlornsoy h,vans, and
ijy Major Chas. S. Lincoln..
It is stated that the trip is merely
for pleasure, but it is understood
that the General would like to see a
few of the Kauai companies at drill
and meet the officers.
Information i n hand docs not
make it clear as to whether the party
will land at Nawiliwili or go on
to Wainica. It is assumed, how
ever,- that Nawiliwili will be the
place, particularly as. Colonel Broad-
bent will be a passenger from Hono
lulu by the same boat.
Some function will most likely be
arranged for the commanding gen
eral, but just what, when or where
will not bo decided until Colonel
Broadbent returns tomorrow.
General Johnson was detained at
Honolulu on other matters and
could not accompany the party.

Credit To Mr. Lydgate
The last annual report of the
Bishop museum gives credit to Mr.
J. M. Lydgate for the discovery of
several now plants in the high
mountains of Kauai sonic of which
have been given his name. The
mountains of these Islands have been
so diligently, and so systematically
searched for so many-years, that it
