A good deal of now machinery has
recently been installed, bo that tho
output will easily supply tho 20 or 30 '
million cans which tho present soa-j
son's plneapplo crop will require. Tho
big now concrete buildings erected by
tho company about a year ago will
make it possible for tho. output to bo
increased as tho trado demands, by
tho slmplo addition of more machin

Tho Hawaii Promotion Commltteo
has sent to Portland for information
as to tho cost of a poster display to
ndvertlso tho Islands during tho week
of tho big Elks' national reunion, July
8 to 13. If the matter can be satis
factorily arranged from a financial
standpoint, it is proposed to make an
elaborate display during the timo of

"To give a little illustration of the
condition of Hawaii if our sugar
should be put on tho free list, I will
quote a few figures given to me as to
Ewa plantation. In 1911 their prollt
was $1,277,000. '
"If they would have paid duty on
their sugar as tho s tariff stands now,
Ewa plantation would have a prolit of
between forty and fifty thousand dol

their capital stock, what would have

again urged McCandless to withdraw

the action of the committee. McCan
, dless was obstinate. The matter was
I thoroughly debated, but McCandless
refused to face tho issue squarely.
McCarthy, also, voiced the protest of
most of tho members of the Demo
cratic party at McCandless' listening
to the advice of Soap-Box Barron, T.
J. Ryan and others of like ilk, to tho
exclusion of reputable members of
the party. McCandless insisted that

sldor the matter. As stated by one
of the trustees, the members of the
board, up to the present time, had not
considered the time rlpo for taking
any stojw to develop the proporty In
quostlon. Recently, too, they had
boon holding back to see what would
bo the outcome of tho Mnhuka federal
building site condemnation proceed
ings, but it has boon decided not to
wait for a sottlomont of this long
drawn out matter, as ono of tho sev
eral plans would probably bo adopted
within n few wooks.
It was stated at tho meeting of
tho commercial bodies' committee
this morning that tho Bishop Estnto
would probably bo open to considor
erecting a building for tho purposes
contemplated," or a loaso or the prop
erty, provided it could bo shown that
it could net a six per cent lncomo on
tho investment. Somo of the mem
bers of tho commltteo believe that
this can bo done, In which case it is
possible that sentiment will favor tho
Honolulu Hale Considered.
A new proposition, however, was
sprung on tho committee with tho
suggestion that steps bo taken to ac
quire, if possible, tho old Honolulu
Hale property on Merchant street,
and whether or not it would bo pos
sible to securo it is not known. Somo
of tho members aro said to favor this
site rather than tho Bishop sito.
The outlook for something deflnlto
in tho matter of this building project
Is considered brighter at present than
It has been for somo time. Other
meetings "will probably bo held very
shortly, and strong hopes are enter
tained that tho plans Contemplated
will soon become a reality. j
Candless that it would be only the
fair thing for him to rclcaso Colonel
McCarthy from his promises of sup
port and permit tho Democratic party
to choose its own candidate for dele
gate. Colonel McCarthy started to
protest, but Irwin stated to McCand
less that the suggestion not only did
not como from McCarthy, but that it
was plainly evident that McCarthy
was not In favor of It, But the lead
ing Democrats were getting tired of
having McCandless an incubus upon
their backs and would like a chance
to decide for themselves who should
bo their candidate.
McCandless became so angry that
ho exclaimed: "All rrght, I do re-
leaso Mr. McCarthy from his promise.
If he can get tho nomination of the
Democratic party, all right."
"Will you support him if ho Is nom
inated?" McCandless was asked.
"I will," ho said.
Colonel McCarthy went homo and
an hour later was called up on the
telephone by Mr. McCandless, who
wanted to come out and see him. Mc
Carthy assented and McCandless
called upon McCarthy at tho latter's
home. At tho conference that ensued
McCandless finally agreed to move, at
the meeting of tho executive commit
tee to bo held that night, that the
committee reconsider Its action In de
ciding to have but one conference, and
decide to hold two, ono to namo dele
gates to the national convention, the
other, to be held after tho national
convention, to select candidates and
decide upon a platform.
But at the meeting of tho executive
committee held last night McCandless
once moro went back on his word and
prevented any action looking toward
reconsideration being taken. Tho re
sult was 'that most of the leading
Democrats washed their hands of Mc
Candless and refused to havo any
thlngf'more to do with him.
This' morning there was 'a' general
scurry(ng around and several of tho
leading 'democrats besought McCar
thy to como out and announco" him
self as a candidate before tho conven
After considerable urging McCarthy
finally consented. A meeting of what
Democrats could bo reached at the
time was hastily called, and at noon
today tho action stated above was
Ono Democrat who was unable to
bo present, Jim Coke, stated enthuBi-
rvatlcally that ho would bo for Mc
Carthy to tho last ditch and that he
would "work his head off" to secure
the Colonel's nomination and election.
A Democrat said today: "Members
of soveral of the leading business firms
of Honolulu have stated that it Mc
Carthy would becomo tho candidate
of tho Democratic party for Delegato
to Congress, they would throw him
their .support. Tho members of the
party believe that if McCarthy can de
feat McCandless in the convention, as
now seems likely, ho can win the elec
tion against any man liable to be op
posed to him. This will bo particularly
true if Kuhlo. gains control of tho Re
publican convention and becomes the
regular Republican nominee. Several
of the big firms could hardly support
Cupid after his stand against them.
On the other hand, should Cupid fail
to laud the nomination and run inde
pendently, ho would split the vote of
tho Republicans, leaving a clear field
to McCarthy. At least, that Is the
way the Democrats back of McCarthy
