ThTlp Top was full up Inst night
for tho Republican political meeting,
the ordinary attraction oC tho speak
ing being reinforced by a moving
picture program which drew In a
Mr. H. D. Wlshard acted as chair
man and announced M. J. Perclra as
the first speaker.
In a happy combination o frankness
and humor he emphasized tho import
ance of a square deal and tho signi
ficance of tho homestead as tho only
ready means by which an ordinary
working man can support his family,
educate his children and get ahead
a little. So ho was out to support tho
homcseador. The other important is
sue for the Island at this time is the
Nawillwill landing, and the only way
to get it is to stand together, which,
heretofore we hadn't done.
Tho next speaker was S. K. Kaahu,
who was most emphatic In his con
viction that things hadn't been going
right heretofore and that various Ir
regularities and abuses- which ho
mentioned "had got to stop." One of
them was tho Governor who had got
to walk mighty straight and act
mighty humble or wo would put him
M. . ft. Agular followed with a very
sensible and temperae speech which
impressed tho audience favorably in
his behalf. He was an out-and-out
American with no hyphens about him,
and here to stay. The homestead was
tho guarantee of loyalty. The day
lalRrer has no stake in the country, he
is hero today and gone tomorrow. Tho
local democratic administration had
set too high a price on homesteads,
thoy should be reduced to a standard
price of about $50 and acre. Ho
thought it would be a good thing to
have a water commission that would
handle the water and do justice all
James Werner spoke next and em
phasized tho need for friends in tho
legislature In order to accomplish
anyhlng. All the present candidates
were green, but Charley Itlco was an
old hand at the business, well and
favorably known and it was very im
portant to have him there to introduce
them and help them to win friends.
So, all voto for him and tho res of us.
. . C. A. Rice made a Vigorous and
convincing speech which was received
with such evident favor as to mako
very clear his overwhelming strength
at least In this precinct. Ho outlined
tho history of tho land laws and in
dignantly denied that any credit was
duo McCandless for tho benefits ac
Ho believed in homesteadlng, cor
tainly ho did, but it must bo the
right kind of homesteadlng on tho
part of men who meant business, and
were ready to work hard, and deny
themselves for results. And such
homesteaders needed help; and tho
plantations wore ready to help such
As a director of tho Makeo Sugar
Company, he had reason to know it
had $250,000 outstanding on advances
to tho homesteaders. It was a good
contract they had there, good for both
parties, and that was tho kind of
homesteadlng ho believed In, and that
was tho k.'nd ho stood ready to help.
TlK jhomosteaders on Kapaa wero
expecting to get 5000 tons this coming
season. Did that look as though they
woro being abused or maltreated?
Tho homesteaders on Kapaa woro
the Islands had made a deplorable
failure of homesteadlng, as they had
almost everything elso. Thoy had
been shiftless, and dilatory, and
shllly shally all along tho lino, and If
you w.tnted to got anything dono you
would have to support tho Ropubll
cans. IIo stood mo3t loyally by Kuhlo,
and vindicated him against tho at
tach of McCandless, and did much to
counteract "the poison which had
been shot around" through tho Islands
by tho arch enemy. He concluded
with an Impassioned appeal to his
friends to stand by him in this cap
In final conclusion Mr. Wlshard was ;
called upon and ho made a very neat
and telling speech in vindication of
Kuhlo and in appreciation of his long I
years of sorvico, and of his tried ablll-1
ty and value to tho Islands. '

THE END OF THE WAR
There Is no prospect of a
proper ending of the war before
the campaign of the summer of
1919. To attain victory we
must place In France 32 million
fighting men with the greatest
mechanical equipment that has
ever been given to any army.
While we expect the position
on the western front may be
Improved, from a military point

must secure until another year

COMES TO GIF
A hut of cattle rustlers, who madt
themselves famous for cheap produc
tlon of beef, was recently rounded up
by Deputy Sheriff W. O. Crowell.
Previous to tho Interference of the
Wnimca police force, Kokaha people
had been enjoying tho advantages of
cut prices on beef that havo not been
equalled for some tlms. Tho p .rticu
lar method of cheap beef production
employcdd by the gang, was to round
up other people's cattlo, drive them
to a secluded spot, butcher them and
sell tho beef in the camps.
The matter was brought to tho at
tention of the authorities through the
camp policeman at Kokaha, who had
scon some of tho laborers with an
unusual supply of beef. He enquired
regarding tin origin of the supply
and notified Sheriff Crowell.
According to Sheriff Crowell, the
man who had sold the beef In the
camp was questioned, and after some
cross examination a complete confu
sion of the wholo matter was obtain
ed. Nino natives wero Involved In the
affair, and according to Iator Informa
tion, it was learned that tho practice
had been going on for somo tlmo.
Tho gang operated at night. After
thoy had selected their animals, they
drovo them to tho boach for slaughter.
Hero tho sheriff and his men found
the unsaleable remains of the stolen
cattle, burled in the sand. Even tho
hid03 wero buried, as tho sale of
them was considered risky for the
gang to undertake
Tho nine men involved wero allow
ed to go free for the time being, pend
ing charges to be pressed later on by
Knudsen Brothers, who wero the
owners of the stolen cattle, which
number over a dozen hoad.

A grjup of Chinese farmers have
.eased a few acres of land nbove
Jento's place in Lawil, and have
planted it to corn. Thoy got thc.r
seed from Cento. The area planted
mounts to about four acres.
Eonto's corn seems to bo unlvornal

below tho estimate, tho general crop

characteristics of each. Kagawa has
no seed to spare now, but when ho
harvests his next crop he will bo able
to supply others with seed.
O. Thronas, who raises cattlo and
