FOR SAM JOHNSON
Snm Johnson is coming to town to
look after Republican interests in
on election day. Such is the apparently
authentic report that has come
up from Hilo, and it is, therefore, advisable
for the voters to be on their
guard and see to it. that the disgraceful
proceedings of four years ago are not
repeated this year. The ballot-box
should be watched so should Sam.
Republican desperation is amply demonstrated
in their sending to Pahoa for
Sam Johnson. And in order to get him,
they must have had his employers send
him special orders to drop his work at
the Pahoa lumber mill and hurry to Honolulu
to get into the political whirl.
For Sam Johnson stated before he
left Honolulu for Hawaii that he was
out of politics, and apparently he was
sincere. Ever since then he has, whenever
questioned on the subject, reiterated
the statement. "I am out of politics
for good," he has said.
But Sam Johnson is an employe of
the Castles and others of the rich men
of the Republican party, and it is his
duty to obey orders. If they have instructed
him to come to Oahu to do politics,
he will come, if he values his job.
And, to repeat, it is authentically and
authoritatively stated that Sam Johnson
will be up on the Mauna Kea next
Saturday to look after the Kakaako
precinct. It behooves the Democratic
party to pay special attention to that
precinct and see that nothing is allowed
to be done that will intimidate the voter
or deprive Jiim of his ballot.
In bringing Johnson to Honolulu the
Republicans are sacrificing the ticket of
the Big Island, but that is not unreasonable.
They realize that Hawaii is going
Democratic by an immense plurality.
And they know that the situation on
Oahu is desperate. But they are trying
frantically to save a few pieces out of
the wreck, and they have sent for Sam
Johnson to help them.
Johnson is a clever politician, too
clever some say, but he cannot save the
day for the Republicans. They are lost,
and they are realizing it to the bitter
ARE BADLY SCARED
"This is the first time the sugar interests
of Kauai have ever been scared.
Always before we have had things all
our own way and knew before election
that we were going to win. But now
we are badly frightened, for it looks
like a Democratic landslide."
This statement was made a few days
ago by one of the big Republican sugar
men of the Garden Island. An honest
confession is good for the soul, so it is'
to be hoped that he is feeling some better
now, thank you.
It is true. Heretofore the little clique
of sugar barons that virtually own Kauai
and think they own the souls and
bodies of everybody else on the tight
little Island have had things their own
way. They have dictated the politics
of Kauai and have never before had to
worry about the outcome of an election.
But now they see the storm approaching.
They have learned that they cannot
fool the people all the time, nor can
they bluff and bulldoze them forever.
The voters of Kauai have been awakened
and have taken the reins into their
own hands. Something is" due to drop
on the barons of Kauai about November
8, and they are now trying to pud a
cyclone-cellar or a bomb-proof to save
Sixty gallons of beer, and gin galore,
were the strongest arguments at the Republican
meeting at Palama'last Saturday.
MORE EVIDENCE OF
One more evidence of the attempt on
the part of the Republicans to intimidate
and coerce the Hawaiian voters is
the retention of Fred. Meyer, manager
of the Waianae plantation, as judge
of election for his precinct.
When Governor Frear announced
that he had appointed Mr. Meyer as
judge of election for Waianae which
was not until after another man had
been induced to resign in favor of Mr.
Meyer a protest was immediately
voiced by the Hawaiian voters of Waianae.
"If Mr. Meyer is judge of election,"
they said, "we will not dare to
vote the Democratic ticket for fear that
we will lose our jobs on the plantation."
The matter was brought to the attention
of Mayor Fern, who went to Governor
Frear and asked him to withdraw
the appointment of Meyer and appoint
another man. The Governor pretended
to consent and later stated that he had
asked Meyer to resign but that Meyer
had refused to do so. The Governor's
letter to Meyer was referred to the Republican
county committee, the members
of which are now backing up Meyer.
The situation is this: Fred. Meyer,
manager of the plantation, knowing
full well that the Hawaiians are afraid
of him and fear that if, with him acting
as judge of election, they vote the Democratic
ticket, they will be discharged,
refuses to resign. It may be that Meyer
as judge of election would act fairly.
But Meyer knows now that his Hawaiian
laborers are afraid to vote the Democratic
ticket with him sitting as judge
of election and Mr. Meyer refuses to
resign. The inference is plain. Meyer,
as a Republican wardheeler, wants to
intimidate his Hawaiian employes.
Incidentally it may be stated that a
railroad engineer at Waianae who was
at first appointed judge of election, is
to be induced to resign to make room
again for Meyer, if Meyer himself resigns.
This is further proof of the intention
of the Republicans to intimidate
the voters of Waianae.
This is the way the Republican party
is trying to win its losing cause. The
leaders know they cannot hope to win
by fair means but they arc perfectly
willing to win by foul means if they
can. As Republican Bill Aylett said on
the stump last week: "If we can't win
this election honestly, we will steal it."
Lot the people elect a Democratic majority
in the next legislature, which
might see fit to pass a vote of want of
confidence in the chief executive for
misdirecting the contingent fund appropriated
by the last legislature for certain
emergencies. See to it, voters.
Report says that Chief Justice
has promulgated the ukase "the incident
is closed" in regard to his appointment
of district magistrate for Honolulu.
Oh, is that so? The people are
yet to be heard from at election, when
they may inquire as to the exact time
it was closed. The people will Very likely
consider his gratuitous snub of them
a closed incident, and he may hear of
it later. ,, t '
It seems that Woolley's at it again.
It wouldn't be surprising if the Republicans
did not try to blame Woollcy on
the Democrats, with their own side
rushing to the rescue!
The Advertiser is becoming more
panic-stricken every day. Now it says
"It is 'improbable' that McCandless
will be elected." A little while ago the
Advertiser declared it was "impossible."
Now it editorially admits the
possibility. On November 9 it will have
the duty of recording the actuality, for
on November 8 the voters of this Territory,
awakened to their responsibilities,
will elect the Democratic candidate for
Delegate to Congress.
