and deciding up n a piogrant to be
lol'oweil at the next incline, little
wi accomplished by iliu republican
convention of the I;ir-st Repi'-scntn
live District nt Fireman's Hull last
Saturday. The prevailing opinion
was that no 11 itnuintious should he
made or platform adopted until an
other nitetiiiK to be held after the
in Hilo September 1st. A plat
was outlined by the committee on
res lutinns, but action thereon was
delayed ti(ou iccommendaiiou of
the committee. Albert Horner of
Kukuiaii, leporied from the com
mittee on i tiles, a general plan for
the election of officers and order of
business, and recommenced in the
intcest of harmnny'n method fot
selecting ciiididates for the lowei
houtc. This provides that Olaa
and Puna shall agree upon one
candidate, that Humakua be en
titled to otic candidate and the rc-nm-nderofthe
Hilo, nominate two candidates for
the house of representatives. The
fact was recalle-t that Ilamakua
was not recognized in the selection
of candidates for supervisor last fall,
and as a representative of tint dis
tricl, Mr. Horner desired to see the
north end of the District recognized
on the republican ticket. The
delegate fell in with thcpioposition
and without a dissenting voice, ex
cept that of II. 1$. Nalimu of Waia-
kea, who Jias political aspirations
for the legisla lire, the report was
adopted. Everything was apparent
ly harmonious and the leaders of
the Young Men's Republican Club
showed a disposit:on to be mag
11 minions after their success nt the
primaries the week previous.
Chairman Peck of the outgoing
District Committee called the meet
ing to order at 10:30 o'clock Satur
day morning. All precincts with
the exception of Houokaa, were re
presented in person or by proxy.
The convention was opened with
prayer by Rev. S. I. Desha, and
W. H. Beers appointed interpreter,
in order to translate the proceedings
to the Hawaiian delegates present.
After some delay as to the manner
of the appointment of a committee
on credentials, the chair was in
structed to select a committee for
this purpose, which he did naming
J. D. Lewis, W. H. Beers and R.
A. Lyman, Jr. The credentials
found in order were as follows:
Puna, D. Kelipio, Daniel Ka

and not represented. F. Brughelli
involved the convention in a tangle
by calling attention to the rules
andrcgulniinm, which he claimed
had not been obseived at the morn
ing session. He said organization
and the appointment of an executive
committee w ns the First order of
business and should have been done
upon the opening of the convention.
There was considerable debate over
the question in which Kilipio,
Kaloi and Tom Cook took prt
The latter moved that the conven
tion proceed to organization.
Affonso raised thepointthat Conk'.
motion was not in order, until nfter
the hearing of the reports of the
several committees nan neeu re

by I-torner, Ridgway and W. II.
Beers, who left the chair to make
some remarks on the subject The
difficulty was solved nt thisjtincture
by Cook withdrawing his motion.

and the appointment by the chair

commend.d that the selection of
candidates for the hotie of re

The delegates from the itl. and srd.
precincts shall meet and decide on a can
didate; the delegates from the 3rd, 4th,

and decide on two candidates; and the
delegates from the Stli., 9th. am1 loth,
precincts shall meet and decide on one
camlidite, and the selections so mnde to
be presented to the District Committee,
and said candidates shall receive the en
dorsement of all the delegates of the
Brughelli moved the adoption of
the report as a whole, and, over the
objection of H. B. Nalimu, who
said he die? not believe in binding
the convention to such an arrange
ment, the plan was agreed upon by
unanimous vote, ' Nalimu not vot
ing. G. F. Affonso made a report on
platform, from the committee on
rules, which after being read was
adopted, as follows:
lilt Is Resolvkd, That the Delegates
to the District Committee of the First
Representative District of the Territory
of Hawaii, in Convention assembled, be
lieving in the traditions and policies of
the Republican Party, hereby announce
our unswerving allegiance to its prin
ciples and shall uphold the constitution
of the same and shall uphold and sup
port all regular Republican nominees,
striving to do whatever else may be
necessary to perpetuate within our Terri
tory "a government of the people lor
the people and by the people."
Rn.soi.vnn, That we heartily endorse
the administration of Theodore Roose
velt. President of the United States nnd
of George R. Carter, Governor of the
Territory of Hawaii, and hereby ninkc
special mention of ihe stand recently
taken by Acting-Governor A. L. C. At
kinson for and on behalf of citizen labor
on public works.
Rusoi.vitn, That we individually and
collectively shall use our influence for
and support only those who favor clean
politics and faultless administration, and
shall use every effort to maintain the
standard of harmony now existing within
the Republican Party ranks.
Ri'Soi.VKD, That we are unalterably
in favor of county government in its
fullest sense nud shall advocate and
work for the adoption of a plnuk in the

Government legislation. And be it further
Rksoi.viui, That we endorse the
policy outlined by the Hon. Jonah Kn -
laniaimole (Prince Cupid) and reccom -
mend his re-nomination nud to that end
we pled e out-support.
G. V. Jakins of the committee on
permanent organization, reported
1 that the substance of their recomen -
, tlatious was already embodied in
the report of the committee on
rules, and they had nothing further them to be used in case of an
to offer. The convention then pro- emergency. This preparation has

The annoiiuceineiil of the vote needed. Buy a bottle before leav-
by the secretary elicited
the delegntci, and on tnking
the chair, Mr. Beers expressed his -
thanks for the honor as follows:
"I tlmnk you, gentlemen, for the honor '
which you have conferred upon me lo be
the chairman of this convention. As
Mr. Peck said this morning, wc young ,
men are coming to the front, and at the j
same time we mini not fnri'rl tli il some '
of us are new nt the business too. We
may make mistakes at times, but I am
sure we do not intend to do so, nnd ns we (
go along, wc sh ill learn more and more. 1
I hope I may be able to follow in the
footsteps ofvMr. Peck, who has so ably
served as chairman of the District Com-
I nilttee for the past two years, and I hope
I nify do as well in the future as he has
done in the past. One of the most im
portant tasks tiefore this convention will
be the selection of cindidates for the
legislature who" will carry the republican
party to victory in the campaign this
fall. Tills can be done, however, only
by working in unison, ns a body, and
not pulling otic against the other. We
must sink nil our factional differences
nnd work together for the result wc are
nitulng for. As chairman of the District
Committee, I will do my best to do what
is right nnd proper, nt the same time en
deavor t enrry out the wishes of the
members 01" this body. I tlmnk ou for
the liquor bestowed upon me."
His remarks were received with
applause, and the convention then
proceeded to elect a vice chairman.
Under an arrangement previously
agreed upon in a caucus of the
third and fourth precincts, I. K.
Ray nominated G. F. Affonso.
AiTouso had made a fight in the
primaries with the avowed purpose
of licing secretary of the convention,
but in caucus he was promised the
consolation prize of vice chairman.
Norman K. Lyman named Jock
McGuire, and in the count of
ballots which followed, McGuire
was found to have 13 votes to
Afibnso's to. McGuire made one
of his characteristic speeches,
facetiously referring to thr; bald
head of Editor Stacker who satin
the peanut gallery, and whom he
hoped would soon beyoungenough
to join the Young Men's Republi
can Club. This sally at Andrews'
political manager brought forth a
general laugh at Stacker's expense.
For treasurer, there was a spirit
ed race between Siemsen and
Pacheco, although somebody nom
inated John Kai, Jr., who received
only one vote. Siemsen received
13 votes against Pacheco's 8.
Before adjournment, Chairman
Beers named the executive com-"
mittee as follows: W. H. Beers,
chairman, R. A. Lyman, Jr. secre
tary, Chas. Siemsen, treasurer, and
D. Kelipio. T. E. Cook, 0. W.
