BITULITHIG REPUBLICANS TRY TO
ROB THE CITY OF HONOLULU
Is the Republican party the same as
the Bitulithic Paving and Concrete
Company, Limited? Read this:
Incorporators of the Bitulithic Company
Walter B. Warren, of Portland,
Oregon; J. A. Oilman, J. P. Cooke, E.
Faxon Bishop, A. M. Brown, Walter F.
Dillingham, John Waterhouso, F. J.
Lowrey, R. W. Shingle, Harold Dillingham.
Sounds like a list of the Republican
party leaders, doesn't it. And these ax-e
the men who want to pave Fort Street
and other streets of the city with
paving, at from two to four times
the price charged by the Bitulithic people
in other cities.
Really, it does seem that the Republican
party ought to change its name to
the Bitupublican party, or perhaps to
the Repubulithic party.
Look at the list of names. A. M.
Brown, deputy city and county attorney,
part of whose business it is to see
that the municipality does not make
any bad bargains, is not stung by any
gel-rich-quick concerns; J. P. Cooke,
the good thing of the Republican party,
the sugar man who always comes
through with the coin when the party
is out of funds, the politician who, as a
dilletanti, plays the game without knowing
anything about even its first principles,
the banker of the Republican
party who, at the behest of men like
John Wise, Charlie Clark, Colonel Knox,
Willie Crawford, Charlie Achi and ex-detective
Welch, digs down in his pocket
and supplies the sinews of war for
the carrying on of a campaign to preserve
the safety of Special Interests
which he represents; Bob Shingle, candidate
on the Republican ticket for city
and county treasurer; J. A. Gilman,
brother-in-law of Arthur Brown and
Kuhio, the Republican candidate for
Delegate to Congress, has already admitted
his defeat in a manner more eloquent
than could be suggested by any
of those who are opposed to him.
In the presence of thousands of people
last night at Aala park, he, together
with Robert W. Breckons, the U. S.
District Attorney, and Stephen Desha,
who is supposed to be a preacher of the
Gospel, were hooted by the crowd and
chased ignominiously from the Home
Breckons started for the Home Rule
platform, accompanied by Desha who
was to act as his interpreter. Both
mounted the platform and Breckons endeavored
to address the assembled multitude,
whereupon there arose a
shout of derision and Breckons
was hooted off the stand. The Reverend
Desha actually sneaked away, leaving
Breckons alone until even Breckons had
sense enough to know that the people
had no use for him.
"Prince" Kuhio happened to be in
the foreground. At the spectacle of his
bosom friend Breckons being hooted
from the stand, Kuhio lost his temper
and later in an argument with a Portuguese
boy declared in the hearing of
scores huddled around that the Portuguese
born in Honolulu were nothing
He had been asked if ho was a representative
of the people or the sugar
planters and the above declaration was
the answer that ho gave.
There was every indication of an attempt
on the part of the Republican
crowd to break up the meetings of the
Democrats and the Homo Rulers, which
bound to him by financial ties as well as
the ties of kinship.
Some of the incorporators arc doubtlessly
in on the deal merely on a straight
business ground but they are all Republicans
and the Republican party
and more especially the Republican
members of the board of supervisors
have felt it obligatory upon themselves
to do whatever they could to help along
this needy and worthy concern, this infant
industry that begins operations by
taking a bite out of the municipality
worthy of the bite of a hungry wolf:
And the Republican party, in the face
of these damning facts, has had the audacity
to heap odium upon Supervisor
McClellan, the lone Democratic member
of the board of supervisors, for daring
to try to save the city from being i-ob-bed.
The Republican party, for the sake of
advancing the political prospects of its
candidates, has dared to try to pilfer
public funds. It has countenanced the
deliberate hold-up intended by this political
machine that hides itself under a
It is perhaps fortunate that the membership
of the company is what it is.
All Ilawaiians should be glad that none
of their race appears in the list of incorporators.
Let the odium rest where
it belongs, on those who would deliberately
try to make capital out of the
The Republican party stands together
for this attempted holdup. The voters
now understand the situation that exists.
Today they have the opportunity
to administer a merited rebuke to those
who would try to rob Honolulu. Vote
the Democratic ticket and vote for honesty
in business and purity in politics.
KUHIO INSULTS HONOLULU PORTUGUESE;
BRECKONS AND DESHA HOOTED BY CROWD
scheme proved a miserable failure for
the reason that the popular sentiment
was with the Democrats.
The Advertiser this morning distorts
the disgraceful incident of Breckons,
Desha and Kuhio trying to break up the
Home Rule and Democratic meetings.
With its usual disregard for the truth
it declares that the Democrats were to
Blame. Kuhio butted in as did Breckons.
Breckons had no more right on the
Home Rule Stand than he has in any
other public position.
The Republican meeting had already
broken up for the reason that the people
refused to listen longer to the Republicans,
the majority joining the
thousands around the Democratic platform
and a few going to listen, to the
Home Rule speakers. Some of the Republican
spielers tried to bunco the
Home Rulers to let them use the Home
Rule platform. Naturally the crowd
laughed and hooted these assisted immigrants
off the stand, which they had
the right and decency to do.
The vilest attempt to discredit Sheriff
Jarrett and Deputy Rose in this matter
is made by the Advertiser this morning.
That paper says they refused to
interfere, intimating that there was
something to interfere with.
Jarrett and Rose did their duty entirely
and certainly refused to assist
any hold-up game or buncombe on the
part of the Republicans or anybody else.
The poor piffle in the Advertiser's
editorial to the effect that Jarrett failed
in his duty is absolutely a designed
misrepresentation of the facts, while
the talk of Cox having any chance is
as funny as it is insincere.
Cox can't be elected.
