the length uf their footing nml. -overleaping
an open of water, landed hcav-

Then all nt once down by the fnee
something crashed. The entire stream
became alive. It hissed and roared; It

The six men nnd llrynn Moloney,
who. It i 111 bo remembered, were on

When the log , began to cave under
them so rapidly that oven the expeit

of hunting safety.
"She 'pulls,' hoys!" he yelled.

Honolulu, Sept, 20. Failing of
nomination in the Republican dis
trict convention, Senator Cecil
Hroivn has announced his intention
to run ns an independent candidate
for the upper hoiibe in the district
ofO.ihtt. The regular nominees
are K. Faxon llishop, John C.
Lane and J. M. Dowsett. Mr.
Brown charges his defeat in the
senatorial convention to Attorney
General Andrews and office holders
in the administration.
He believes that left to the un
hampered vote of the people, he
would have secured the nomination
and consequently is convinced llmt
in a straight appeil to the voters of
the island he will be successful.
Mr. Brown's decision will, make
a veiy complex situation 011 this
island. lie has led every Republi
can ticket and is considered one of
the strangest vote getters on the
island. Hitherto independent can
didates have had a mighty hard
row lo hoe, but none of those who
have tried it have possessed the
popularity of Brown.
