Delegate Kalanianaole has introduc
ed the bill to provide that all Feder
al ollicials within the territory of
Hawaii, including the Federal judges,
the collector of customs for Hono
lulu, all postmasters, the collector
of internal revenue, shall before
they are eligible for appointment,
have been bona fide residents of the
Territory of Hawaii for at least one
year prior to their appointment. If
the dominant political party adheres
to its home rule declarations the
bill should become a law without
great trouble. But it is doubtful if
the desire to find places for "de
serving Democrats" does not prove
more potent than a party platform
tion on the Republican ticket.
I respectfully ask each and all
voters in the said district of Kawai-
hau to support me in the said com
ing Primary Election.
