This is an inexpensive enamelled floor covering which
has qualities peculiarly its own. The enamel is baked onto
the surface till it is a part of the material, just like the en
amel on a high class automobile.
If it is kept waxed to preserve the surface it will wear
for years. It will wear wonderfully well anyhow.
We will send samples and estimates.
If you will send a plan of your floor with the correct
dimensions of angles and jogs we will send the PABCOLIN
all cut ready to put in place.
This splendid inexpensive floor covering is only one
dollar a square yard.

I, Manual It. Aguiar Jr., Demo
cratic candidate for the Senate;
' Am. ti former Republican.
For four years 1 was a Be
publican and for four years 1
have studied the activities and
the results of the Republican par
ly twenty years in power in Ha
waii. The Republican Party in Ha
waii is the sugar planters' par
ty and they run it. Run it to
suit themselves and nobody else.
It is a failure; they are not
building up Hawaii. They are
just exploiting Hawaii.
The native sons of Hawaii are
the sufferers; they cannot live as
their ancestors do because of the
education they receive in our
public schools; which is highly
desirable and beneficial and some
day the barrier will have 10
give way, and it may cause trou
ble I was born and raised here.
My parents came from Portugal.
They were Hawaiian citizens,
when I first saw the light of
day. so naturally I am a citizen
This is my native land. Away
from here I am a stranger. I will
live and die for Hawaii, my
The problems of Hawaii are
The planters do not care to
solve the problem of Hawaii. The
government is handicapped by
being under the grip of the plan
ters; thru their party control.
The government's powers are lim
ited thru this control. Yet the
planters want to impose upon
Hawaii more problems by their
desire to import into Hawaii
Today there are about 17 peo
ple to the square mile in Hawaii
to :: in the United States and
yet Congress has seen fit to cur
tail immigration to the United
States. Into Hawaii they are
coming as fast as ships can bring
them from the orient.
And yet some of our distin
guished gentlemen want to Am
ericanize Hawaii by importing
Chinese, I believe.
Last year, l!)lM, Ihe Hawaiian
legislature passed in form of a
resolution for enactment by
the Congress of the United States
the famous Hawaiian Rehabilita
tion bill, and my opponent Sen
ator C. A. Rice, voted for this
bill, if he didn't vote for it, then
he wasn't there to fight it, when
it was passed by the Senate of
the P.rJl legislature.
Today the Republican platform
calls for the revision of our pri
mary laws. They want to know
how the people are voting before
they count the ballots.
These activities and other do
ings of the Republican party,
the sugar planters of Hawaii,
has caused me to become u Dem
ocrat. You people, citizens and vot
ers of Kauai, who are rearing
children, boys and girls, who will
know Hawaii as their native land,
who will hate to leave Hawaii to
seek a living elsewhere, are you
going to let conditions go on the
way they have been going and
the way they are about destined
You know the legislature is
the supreme power in the terri
tory. To it you can make your ap
peal by voting for the man whom
you may feel might stand by
you, and that man is myself.
I have no axes to grind.
1 am an independent citizen of
I want to see business in Ha
I want to see the citizens of
this Territory enjoy the fruits
which they aie entitled to under

My previous experience in
legislative work fits me to mea
sure up to the requirements ne
cessary to be a Senator.
You will not make a mistake
in voting for me 1 can assure you.
As a Democrat 1 will support
the Democratic platform, and
don't forget to put a little cross
to the right of my name on the
7th day of November.
What the Advertiser had to
say of Aguiar's record as Repre
sentative of the 1919 legislature:
Manual R. Aguiar dr., of the
Sixth District, Kauai, was a
new member of the house who
emphatically made good. He is
one of the youngest members but
showed his keen perception and
independence when he sized 'up
the purposes of the anti-llolstein
hui and served notice that he
would not associate himself with
them. Aguiar was a valuable
member of the finance commit
tee and of the public lands com
mittee bringing the sympathy and
understanding of the genuine and
successful homesteader as oppos
ed to the man who wants a hand
out or the man who has no real
sympathy with or understanding
of the needs of the man on the
land. Aguiar's errors were those
of inexperience and they were re
markably few. He seemed to have
an appreciation of the duties of
a legislator and the courage and
independence to stand by his
convictions. The one creditable
representative of Kauai, the vot
ers of the Garden Isle will do
well 1o return him next session
when his growing experience will
make him an even more valuable

to make proper supervision for the distribution of their es

planned to make a will some day, but kept putting it off
until too late.

care of this matter, do so at once TODAY.
