"Well, times aint what they
uster be. Imagine a political
meet in' with winiin in it and with
nothin' more exlitin' in it than to
see the lontestin' candidates fish
in' in' their pockets to find their
notes when they fergit all the
pleasant things they Intend to tell
the spell bound audience and fran
tic cheerers about themselves."
Thus spoke the old-timer after
the big polilical meeting held at
the Tip Top Theatre Friday night.
The various candidates, who de
pended upon the votes of Lihue
people to elect them, had covered
the entire island from Mana to
Wainiha. They shook hands
with every man, woman and child
in the district and spoke at a doz
en or so political mcetinsrs at
night. . And they were all primed
for the-grand finale Saturday.
The more we go to political
meetings the more we like them.
In the first place we don't get to
see a movie gratis every day. We
did Friday night. And in the
second place it is pleasant, to
know what a fine bunch of people
we really live among. No on.?
can so impress you with his high
principles as an aspiring, perspir
ing, inspiring political candidate.
After the movie was pan, after
an animated cartoon, drawn prob-
ibly by Mr. Baylcss, was shown
depicting the awful fate of a Sun
day fisher, the Hawaiian orches
tra started some real jazz and
Hawaiian music. This music
rarely failed to wake the audience
from its slumbers when it started
its harmonies after every speech.
After the first piece, Sheriff Wm.
Rice arose and introduced the
first speaker, A. G. Kaulukou.
Mr. Kaulukou impressed upon the
audience the necessity of a young
man, a man full of energy, tact
and sympathy, for county attor
ney. He told of his education
and his life among us. We were
Then Sheriff Rice introduced
Judge Lyle Dickey, also an aspi
rant to the county attorney's of
fice. Judge Dickey told us that
he had run one old Buick for seven
out of the eight years that he had
lived among us. He decided, af
ter several years of thought, to
buy a new car, which is now badly
worn due to a strenuous cam
paign. We expected Judge Dick
ey to say, "Now, people, somebody
has to pay for that car, and my
salary as county attorney will
just about do it." But he didn't.
He said, "That car served me
faithfully for many years. But
that didn't keep me from finally
getting a better one when the op
portunity was offered to me The
conclusion is obvious. It doesn't
make any difference if Kaeo has
been attorney for fourteen years.
Vote for me."
Then Samuel Kaeo "hissef" was
introduced. . It was evident that
he had considerable following,
judging from . the rooters in the
gallery. Mr. Kaeo said, "Judge
Dickey tells of his car that he has
run for seven years. I've had one
quite a while myself and I hope
to have it twenty more years. You
know when you have a thing for
some time you get so you love it
and don't want to part with it.
I've been county attorney fourteen
years. I'ut me over once more."
J. K. Cockett of K'oloa was next
introduced by Sheriff Rice, as a
contender for the office of county
treasurer. Mr. Cockett spent
some time telling how and why
K. C. Alt a n a had not saved the
county $2500. And, we regret to
say, he made a trifle too much' of
the race issue. That has nothing
to do with our. polities, or should
n't have. But the applause he
icceived showed that Mr. Cockett
was by no means without his sup
porters in Lihue.
K. C. Ahana showed 'that for
two years, twenty-four months,
he had saved the county the hire
of one clerk at one hundred doll
ars a mouth. That, Mr. Ahana
figured, is pretty near the much
mooted sum "of twenty-five hun
dred dollars. Mr. Ahana asked
the support of Lihue people on
the grounds that he bad conducted
his office properly and efficiently
for the last two years. The ap
plause gf his audience must have
helped K. C's feelings consider
ably. Mr. Henry Hustace, in the po
litical arena for the first time,
sought election on the grounds
that as the county of Kauai devel
ops it needs younger and farther
seeing men to manage its affairs.
Mr. Hustace very pleasantly kept
personalities out of liis speech,
however, and was, for a malihini
among us, well received.
Before introducing the last speak
er, Mr. Rice asked the support of
all people for the three contest
ants who were upopposed in the
primaries on the grounds that a
primary election would save the
County of Kauai much expense in
the final election. Mr. Rice also
asked the support of the voters
for Mr. H. I). Wishard who has
served the County faithfully and
efficiently as chairman of the
board of supervisors for sixteen

tained that a man who has had
many years of experience on the
board, who has lived on Kauai for
thirty years and who knows Kauai
conditions, is better qualified to
act efficiently than a man, no
matter how business-like he may
naturally be, who has been on the
island only a short time and who
is less familiar with its conditions.
Mr. Wishard probably made the
most convincing speech of the ev
uing. Again referring to the old
timer, the meeting may .have lack
ed some of its old time zip, but it
showed the people of Kauai who
they wanted to vote for and it con
vinced them that they had, on the
whole, a mighty good bunch of
economy will be needed to make men seeking election.
