The Republican Executive Com
mittee nt Honolulu, in secret session,
turned down, one Wilson for Road
Supervisor. A. G. M. Robertson,
bis attorney, was interviewed and
spoke as follows:
"This matter is no longer a per
sonal one concerning Wilson. It is
a question now of party manage
ment. Can the rights of any Re
publican -be disposed of in secret
conclave, and by persons who have
no right to sit and vote on a com
mittee in charge of the affairs of
the Republican party? Governor
Carter has set the example of pub
licity in the management of the
Government, and our political com
mittees owe the same duty to the
party that directors owe to stock
holders in a corporation. We have
rules, and no man is bigger than
Ambitious Republicans in Hilo,
who have found it easy to ignore
the Republican party rules in their
own interest, and equally as easy to
taunt those who oppose such irreg
ularities with charges of Home
Rule sympathies, should awake to
the requirements and obligations of
politics. Republicanism cannot win
in Hawaii by methods of piracy arid

Hilo Republicans have decided
to-Hit the Republican organization
on this Island from its condition of
innocuous desuetude and make it a
live institution at all periods of the
year. The District Committee held
its first meeting last night to con
sider subordinate appointments in
the departments on this Island.
The Trihunk went to press too
early to discover what course of
action was decided upon.
From talks with members, it
seems to be the purpose of the com
mittee to pass on all applications
for positions in the public service
over here. This is proper politics.
The committee consists of P. Peck,
W. S. McLean, Jose Vierra, Win,
Kamau, J. D. Lewis, W. C. Cook,
J. K. Dillon, E. W. Barnard, M.
V. Holmes, A. Lidgate and J. G.
If it is the purpose of this com
mittee to insist that it shall dictate
the composition of the police force,
it is tackling a ticklish job. The
experiment of party dictation in the
departments over here had best be
commenced on the installment plan.
Make recommendations for the
principal deputyships and let the
heads of departments be held res
ponsible for the rank and file
Politics and police have never
mixed well together for the good
of the public. It is doubtful if our
District Committee can successfully
do here, that which Theodore
Roosevelt would not do in New
York. He divorced the police from
politics in that city and improved
both the police and politics. The
committee cau't affored to risk too
much 011 reversing that program
Sheriff Andrews is to be held re
sponsible for the efficiency of his
force. If he must take on police
men at the dictation of this com
mittee, he can forswear all respon
sibility. If on the other hand the
Sheriff is to handle his force with
an eye to politics, the committee
should dictate the politics and not
The Republican Committee in
this step is assuming grave respon
sibility. The fate of the party
comes home to their acts for its ex
cuse and justification. If you act
in these matters, gentlemen, you
should don the robes of justice and
look into every question divested of
all personal and factional prejudice,
and allow the wellfare of the Re
publican party to dictate every act.
Had the Hilo Fire Department
been supplied with the chemical
engine provided for by the Legis
lature nearly a year ago, the resi
dence of Philip Peck- would not
now be a thing of the past. Even

Works, for more hose had been com

the people with whom he comes in
contact, and despite the shock of
the setback given to local govern
ment by the defeat of the County
Act, Carter is making the people
believe that his administration shall
be a government f ;r the people and
by the people. He is convincing
the people ol this island that while
he depends on Congress to create a
County Act, he will in the mean
time, as far as is within his power,
decentralize under our present-laws.
He is not leading them to think
these things,' but is enforcing the
conviction in the minds of all who
hear his plain frank statements of
the course he intends to pursue
The Governor's party landed at
Kuwaihae and was conducted nt
once to the home of Senator Palmer
Woods. After lunch, Governor
Carter made a trip through the for
ests back of the Kohala plantations.
Wednesday night, January 20, was
spent at the home of Senator;
Woods and Thursday morning a
trip was made to Pololu valley for
the purpose of looking into the
proposition of exchanging certain
government land situated there or
Bishop estate property in Honolulu.
This was one of the deals side
tracked by Governor Carter until
he should receive further informa
tion. His investigation convinced
him that the exchange would not
be for the public interest.
Thursday afternoon the people
served a Hawaiian luau in the Ko
hala Courthouse yard in Governor
Carter's honor. In the evening the
people gave a reception and dance
iu Kohala hall. Governor Carter
with Mrsi D. H. Bond, Secretary
Atkinson, .Mrs. Kay, Mr. Creedou, t
Miss Kay, Mrs. Frazier, Miss
Woods and others stood iu the re-
ceiviug Hue. '
The hall had been very tastefully I
decorated for the event. Flags of '
all nations were draped from the
ceiling, while ferns and palms were
plentifully used iu the decorative '
scheme. The handsome gowns of
the ladies greatly enhanced the
splendor of the evening's entertain-'
The committee in charire of the
dauce'and reception was composed
of Dr. and Mrs Bond, Mr. and
Mrs. John Hind, Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Reuton, Mr. and Mrs. K. B.
Bond, Mr. and Mrs. Tulloch, Mr.
and Mrs. Frazier, Rev. and Mrs.
Turner, Mr. and Mrs. Kay, Miss
C. G. Wight and Mr. A. Mason.
Earlier in the evening before the
ball an impromptu banquet was
tendered the Governor's party at
the Club House. Besides the offi
cial visitors, those present at this
party were, Senator Kaohi, J. T.
McCrossou, A. B. Loebenstein, H.
L. Holstein and Senator Woods.
Toasts were responded to by Gov
ernor Carter, Secretary Atkinson,
Mr. Loebenstein and Senator
Woods. Senator Woods took occa
sion to publicly pledge himself to
support the Governor during his
term in the legislature. Mr. Loeb
enstein toasted the President, The
