Akau threatened .setting aside the

When the convention met there was
a disposition, especially on the part
of Lewis' friends, to proceed, but
they finally withdrew their objec
tion to a brief adjournment so that
their differences might be .settled

to a compromise. Ray and Pacheco
were won over to the Akau side,
md the vote in caucus .stood 9 to 9.
tlere the vote remained for three
hours, with no possible solution in
sight, until Charles Akau, tiring of"
the wrangle and in the interest of
harmony withdrew his name. To
those wlio were familiar with the
feeling that was being engendered

convention from what promised to

Ifl have eer had any particuliir imi
tation to stand as a repiitilicuu candidate
for tilher house of the legiidature liefore,
that nmliitioii has heen checked hy the
condition in which we louud the republi
can pirtv in this district heretofore. Gen
tlemen, the mnlter of attending to the
legi-laiure of this Territory is one so
close to my heart and interests that I luiie
hoped for some lime I iniidll go as a rep
resentative to either the upper or lower
house. Hut when I consider what the
republican parly has been in times past
Willi its leaders, its factions, lack of har
mony and lack of interest, and when I
have seen what the republican party has
had to fiKlit, I was afraid. Hut through
yourselves audlhat branch of the repub
lican organization known as the Young
Mens' Republican Club, we have formed
a siliil front and I feel sure we can whip
this whole district. (Applause) I hope
by your applause that you intend to stand
shoulder to shoulder in this fight.
(Cries of "Sure, sure") It U not much
that I can do. I do not understand the
native language. We will have to address
tlie natives in the back districts and we
' wil1 have to give them some reason for
I J''ung the Republican party. I regret
therefore I cannot address those
ns I would like.
It seems to mc we have a loin; cam-
Pa'K" iM front of us. We might have
postponed making nominitions at this
tune, but of course your judgement is
better than mine. We have a long cam.
paign before us. However, I sliall get to
work and prepare some campaign speeches
and we will then go forth and see if we
cannot talk the Home Rulers and Demo
crats to death.
Gentlemen, I wish to say at the pre
seiiC tune, you have indeed honored me
with an unanimous nomination. This is
something I ntver could hive honed for
before. This is particularly touclilug to
me and lam particularly grateful, since
there has not been one man from the
chairman to the lowest man here, who
has asked me for a single pledge. I come
before you without having made a single

j The principal thing before us is locil
self government. Since I came lo the
Hawaiian Islands, I have dreamed of the
time when our entire Islands would be
broken up into counties and municipali
ties, and every man be given an oppot
tunily to exercie the Anglo-Saxon right
of governing himself.
The thing cloe-t to my heart and
which will be when I am seated in the
legislature is 11 county bill, one that
cannot be upset by tlie Supreme court
and one which will work for our benefit.
We do not want any weak half-hour
measure, but one that will form this is
land into one county. (Applause) There
has been a proposition made in Honolulu
and I have heard it mentioned in Hilo,
which would give us n county onlv in
name with the same condition of alfairt.

tjilitv resting upon tin members of the
legislature, au with all a legislator can
do, there are some measures which he
may fail to have passed. If the rep

that he hopes to do or which you disire,
there tn.iv be some criticism nnde upon
his efforts when he returns to his constit

The nomination of Senators was
merely a matter of form. Under
the rules, Kast and West Hawaii
were supposed to meet in joint con
vention for this purpose, so the
Chair announced this convention
would endorse the nominee put for
ward by the other side of the island,
provided they responded by en
dorsing the candidate of East Ha
waii, and the convention proceeded
to select one Senator. As the chair
called each precinct, the response
each time was for John T. Brown.
Pritchard caused some amusement
when called upon by saying he
"didn't know John T. Hrown from
the west side of a house, but would
second the nomination:" Senator
Brown was duly nominated, and
when called before the convention
by W. A. Todd and J. D. Lewis
expressed his thanks for the nomi
nation and pledged his support of
Republican principles. His son-in-law,
Norman K. Layman, whether
doubting the sincerity of this assur
ance or for some ulterior motive,
asked that each candidate be called
before the convention and pledge
his support of the Republican plat
form. Chairman Beers promptly
ruled him out of order, stating tlu.t
an acceptance by any candidate was
binding upon any honorable man.
After a vote of thauks given
to Chairman Beers and the Secre
tary, R. A. Lyman, Jr., the conven
tion adjourned at 5 o'clock.
