Mrs. Hunt was rushed to tho Wul
mca hospital and Dr. Dunn called,

this rumor, is untrue. Mr. Hunt was
not at home at tho time tho accident

Tho fart that a real political cam
paign is on is quite apparent In
all parts of tho territory, ospeelallv

not dono any electioneering yet.
but Iiis many friends and political
managers on tho various islands
have been busy for him. .Mr. Raid

on all tho islands in getting the
voters to register and to reregister
providing thoy did not vote at tho

eligible on tho big day.
It Is generally conceded that tho
big contest is between Senator
Raldwin and L. L. MeCandioss,
Mrs. Atcherly is not considered a
real contender and Jonah Kumulao'
it is thought, has not a very strong
chance for election.
