. REPUBLICANS TO WORK.
The Republican County Conven
tions have been called to meet Mon
day, September 14, nt 7:30 p. in.
The primaries arc called to meet at
2 p. in., Saturday, August 29. The
precinct clubs meet for business
Friday evening, August 28. The
business to be done at each of these
meetings is well known, and is set
forth in detail in the official notice
published elsewhere in this issue.
The number of delegates to which
each precinct is entitled is staled in
this notice. Those entitled to a
vote at the Republican primaries is
shown by the following section from
the Rules and Regulations of the
Sec. 14. No member of a pre
cinct club shall be entitled to vote
at a primary unless his name shall
have been enrolled in the club, but
any person who will be entitled to
vote at the next general election
shall have the right to have his
name enrolled in the club of the
precinct in which he will be entitled
to vote up to the time of the closing
of the polls.
Tnu people in Puna have reason
to believe that Sheriff Andrews
meddles too much with the dispen
sation of justice by the District
Magistrate of that district. They
want to know how it is, especially
when a police officer is caught red
handed in crime, that the Sheriff
takes such an interest in staying
judgement. They also fail to un
derstand the justice of a system
which under orders from the
Sheriff's office secures convictions
in that district, on the theoiy that
rif the defendant has not had a fair
deal he can get it by appealing to a
Onh of the chief reasons why
Sheriff Andrews is unfit to be
sherifT in a free country is that he
tries to dominate the District Courts.
He does this with such persistence
that he often turns the scales for or
against a defendant on the .score of
friendship or enmity or self interest,
as the case may be.
Tin: Kohala-Hilo railroad in the
hands of Mr. Peck continues to

IAUKHA'S UNfORTUNATE STEP
American government and poli
tics recognise the right of every
I man to lollow the dictates ol ms
own conscience. On this basis the
withdrawal of Curtis Iattkca from
the Republican party and align
ment with the Home Rulers cannot
be questioned. It is largely a mat
ter of judgement and in this instance
the Bulletin believes Mr. Iaukca
has made an error he will live to
regret. His stated reasons for leav
ing the party would seem to this
paper to furnish a very strong ar
gument in favor of his remaining
Mr. Iaukea's principal source of
complaint seems to be the attitude
of a faction in the Republican party
that has persistently maligned the
Hawaiian-Americans, taking the
error and shortcomings of sonic of
its representatives as the occasion
for grouping all Hawaiians in a
class of incompetence and corrup
tion. This factioti has accomplish
ed its end when it gets Iaukea and
such followers as he may have or
may enlist out of the Republican
ranks. Assuming the role of poli
tical purity its sole aim and ulterior
motive is very evidently to force
he Republican party into a minor
ity position and remain satisfied
with whatever influence it may se
cure over Federal and Territorial
patronage, at the same time egging
the Hawaiian-Americans on to in
discretions that will discredit them
at home and abroad.
Hut this faction does not speak
for the solid aggressive sentiment
of the Republican party. It finds
no second from such notable figures
in business and political circles as
H. P. Baldwin, Cecil Brown and
many others prominent in the Legis
lature and the organi7ation, the
men who count when it comes to
shaping politics. Nor does this
faction bespeak the thoughts and
aspirations of the steadfast Republi
can rank and file that carries the
elections and is earnestly working
to elevate the standards of political
contests, that there may be less pre
judice, less malice and more honest
endeavor toward a common end of
The faction against whose opera
tions Iaukea protests by leaving the
party, advance a policy that would
lead, the party to certain ruin and
make of Hawaii a howling political
wilderness. This faction does not
control the party nor will it be suc
cessful in its aims. In allowing
himself to be forced out of the party
by factional issues, Iaukea has
shown weakness rather than
strength Republicans who are de
termined to maintain the integrity
of the party, fulfill its liberal princi
ples and work out Mainland Re
publican principles in Hawaii will
not follow him. They will not al
low the party to be wrecked on the
rocks of factionalism.
The Bulletin regrets the step Iau
kea has taken, and as it considers
Iaukea to be a man of honest mot
ives, believes he will eventually dis
cover the error of his own judge
ment by finding his political in
fluence gone. Bulletin.
AN IMPORTANT DISCOVERY.
An important discovery has been
made. New Jersey is the scat of
the sensation. Scientists and musi
cians are especially interested. It
is possible that the said discovery
may result in depriving the state of
one of its chief distinctions.
It has been demonstrated that the
sounding of the note A above the
stafT on a brass horn is instant death
to mosquitoes. When it is remem
bered that the average Jersy mos
quito is about the sie of an ocean
crab and is equipped with a bill as
sharp as a cambric needle and as
long as a pair of tongs it can per
haps be imagined what the dis
covery means to that common
wealth. In order that full particulars of
this remarkable affair may be
known, we quote the sensational
New Brunswick, N. J., July 17.
J. II. Thomas, leader of the Na
tional Cornet baud of this city, an
nounces he has discovered the musi-
il note that will cause the fall of
t,ie mosquito. I,ast evening the
band was rehearsing a difficult
I composition in A minor, in which
there was a solo of eight bars for
I the first alto horn, played b) Fred
I Nixon, The highest note iu Nix
on's part iu the composition was A
above the staff.
"After several attempts Nixon
succeeded iu reaching the note A,
which, on an alto horn, produces
about 900 vibrations per second,"
said Thomas today. "He made it
with great force. I had noticed
five mosquitoes sitting on the ceil-1
ing, but llit instant lie reached A
every mosquito dropped into the
horn. Being curious to know the
cause of their sudden fall from the
ceiling, I secured a powerful micro
scope and found that both the audi
tory and optic nerves were com
pletely paralyzed, showing, if they
had lived, they would have been
blind as well as deaf. Judging
from this, I think there is no doubt
that the musical note that is fatal to
the mospuito is note A above the
stafT produced on an alto horn in
the hands of an amateur.
"I intend to experiment further
with the bass horn. From rough
calculations I thing that an ordinary
amateur baud ought to be able to
kill off all the mosquitoes iu the
Newark meadows in three days."
Great discoveries arc sometimes
made through scientific investiira-
tions. and sometimes entirely i,v
accident. The Jersey discovery is
of the latter class. It is interesting
to contemplate where this may lead.
Why will it not be possible through
Ihe medium of brass horns to anni
hilate to entire culicidae or dipter
ous family? The legislature could
profitably subsidize bands in all
parts of the state, stipulating that
all music played shall be written so
that A above the staff can be touch
ed by the various performers with
the greatest frequency, and the re
sult would undoubtedly be to rid
the state of its greatest drawback.
New Jersey is noted for three
things trusts, mosquitoes and the
annual failure of its peach crop.
Mosquitoes constitute the only real
annoyance. With this pestiferous
paragon of two-winged, pointed
billed and spike-tailed exasperation
eliminated there is no reason why
life in New Jersey even yet should
not become one grand sweet song.
Honolulu's Crack Company Mill
Honolulu, Aug. 1. Co. F, National
Guard Hawaii, is planning to leave 011
the first of next mouth for n week's camp
ing trip in Hilo. The trip is being made
primarily at the request of Captain Fetter
who is anxious to have the Hilo people
see Hawaii's crnck company drill. It is
the purpose of Co. F to give an exhibi
tion drill nt Hilo along with its camp and
to proidc other means of entertainment
for the people of the Rainy City.
The Hilo excursion will cost iu the
neighborhood of $500 and Captain John
sou has started out to raise the funds
which will be necessary. Co. I) of Hilo
hns offered to help iu this part and will
gie n minstrel entertainment for the
benefit of the Honolulu company.
The trip will be iu the nature of a va
cation outing for the guardsmen and ns
only forty w ill be permited to go out of
the total roster of over sixty, there will
be considerable rivalry before the lucky
men are picked. The trip will only be
one of pleasure for the soldiers boys nud
the Hilo people, but it will give them lots
of good practice ns well.
It is Cnptaiu Johnson's intention to
camp out when iu Ililo and Hoolulu Park
has been ofTeied for that purpose. The
company will tnke nlong its own rations
nnd the new kitchen rnnge recently re
cdivtd by the regiment from the Wnr
The best men iu the crnck company
will be taken nlong nud Hilo people will
110 doubt see ns nearly perfect a drill as
human soldiers can make it.
ThriMt Drinks nud 11 HncK.
Johnson, the whilom Porto Rican in-1
terprttcr celebrated his disconnection
with the force last week by taking three '
drinkh. With these aboard he st irtcil J
home in a Volcano Stables hnck. He
was seen to enter the hnck, a most im-1
proper thing for a discharged policeman
to do. Captain Luke saw the net nud
descended. The conversation that fol
lowed was wnrm nnd was ended abruptly
by u full swing from the Captain's right.
The Porto Rican was out of commission
ngnin nnd was walked "Spanish fashion"
to the jail. He proposes to fight the case
iu spite of Sheriff Andrew's urgent advice
thnt he plead guilty. The case wns post
poned by Judge Hnpai until Cnptaiu
Lnke returns from an olficial trip iu Kim.
