.Agreeable to notice the lirat nicct
lug to discuss the political situation
and canvass for a candidate to repre
sent, the district of Mnkawao was
bold at I'aia on Monday night last.
Air. J. W. Kalua was elected chair
man and upon taking the chair in
troduced Mr. 11. V. Wilcox, who
iu a few word1 told?, what It was de
sired to do at the next session of tke
leglslatute, for the'' uiulres, and
briefly explained the political sltuu
tlun a3 viewed from hla' standpoint ;
he also told of his connection wiih
the late unpleasantness In Honolulu,
and urged the natives to unite in
sending a good man to the legisla
ture. Mr. W. 11. Halstead wss next in
troduced, who spoke as follows : I
present myself as a candidate for
the legislature, and in a few words
will explain my position. There are
live parties in the field, each repre
senting different Interest and it is
for you to choose which one of these
you wish to support. 1 am In favor
of Chinese restriction nud the plant
era are in favor ot a lestrictivc act,
hut what that act shall be remains to
lie seen. We want the planters to
have their rights and we must up
hold them or we sink. When there
are so many factions some one must
ho elected who can conciliate all
these conflicting interests and bring
liarmony out of all this. . The na
tives want two native Cabinet minis
ters to represent them, and I think
they should have them ; then if they
don't get their rights it will be their
fault, and they should go under. 1
can't say that the Itoform party has
done everything to injure, the coun
try, It would be false if I did ; hut I
do suy they have done a great deal
to put down the natives and elevate
the foreigner, foreigners are pre
ferred for offices, are enfranchised
where natives are not, and many otner
things have been done that have
incensed the natives against the gov
ernment. We don't want to go back
to the old regime where all was cor
rupt and rotten, but we do want to
have something to say about our
own government, and will strive
haul to preserve its autonomy. If
you don't elect pioper men to re
present you at this term of the legis
lature, you will lose 3ponr couuiry,
there will no longer be an Hawaiian"
flag. e must send intelligent, in
dependent men to-the house to en
act laws beneficial to all. I advo
cate certain restrictions on immigra
tion, but in making those restric
tions we must not hamper the
planter, if wo do, wc will be biting
off our noses. I want to see a good
government and the Hawaiian na
tion perpetuated forever.
Mr. John Kalamu was next called.
He opened by saying that he wished
all bauds to stand up and give three
cheers for Mr. 11. W. Wilcox (which
they did with a will). Continuing,
Ue speaker said that from Kameha
raeha I. to Kalakaua there has been
no such man as we look at now and
see for ourselves. Wc have no King
now, for by the new Constitution he
in only an anomaly. The revolu
tionists of '87 appointed a committee
to wait on the King with a now Con
stitution which they demanded him
i sign within 24 hours or else he
would be dethroned. This act was
traitorous, and had they not suc
ceeded in their .undertaking would
have been liable to the severest
penalty the law could inflict. What
rort of a Constitution have wp got'r
One for the planters and capitalists
but not for the natives. We have
no King but four haoles who com
pose the Cabinet are our King ; it
they like to gjve the King only pnl
and salt to eat, he can say nothing,
his ''Ministers arc rcsponnible."
Ji'ow, I am a lawyer by profession
and am enjoying u lucrative prac
tice, but am willing to give that up
to serve you iu the legislature for
four or live months fur the paltry
sum ot 81)00. You all know my
record ati Judge and none can 'say
but that.roy decisions weie Jurt aud
Sypjilenitifit to the Daily Rutt hmky, kmtim 24, HHKL
right, and I am willing to place my
self in your hands. He then went
on in a humorous strain to tell about
tho feast he proposed to give on Fri
day next at Makawao and concluded
by inviting all people of every
nationality to be there and partake
of his hospitality.
Mr. J. AV. Kalua was next called
and addressed the meeting iu his
most felicitous manner. He said I
represented you in the legislature
from 180to'8f' nndwas an inde
pendent candidate, Opposed to the
administration because I knew that
It would eventually Wing the coun
try to trouble and perhaps ruiu.
This administration wa? still In
power In 1S8T wheu the crisi came
and the haoles usurped the power.
At thnt lime they went from house
to house, met on the street corners,
in halls and other places, and eulltd
the King all sorts of vile names, and
said the constitution whs rotten, and
that it must be replaced by a new
one, which they forced at the point
of the bayonet on the country, and
what sort of a Constitution is it? I
will tell you, it Itas made you slaves,
by restricting your rights, and giv
ing the power into tlie hands of
haoles. 1 care nothing for Ualdwln
and his million? or any other sugar
planter who anta to bring in
Chinese to the detriment of the
natives, and will oppose them with
nil my strength. The planters tried
Portuguese labor, but find that, as
they made a mistake by enfranchis
ing them, they want no more of
them, and arc now flooding the
country with cheap Japanese labor.
This is a kingdom ruled by sugar
planters, and they have enslaved the
natives. Other countries have pass
ed through the same ordeal. The
"United States had four years of bit
ter war and much blood was shed
for the same thing that is now so
prevalent here. The native is a
slave to be ent to prison if lie don't
work and if he has no money to pay
his tint then he has to nork for the
government. Let us change this,
und give the native a chance, stop
this wholesale importation of Asiatic
labor; make those who are now here
woik on plantations and, when their
time expires, if they don't contract
again, kick them outot the country.
Don't have them here, to pound
poi, cultivate taro, do the mechani
cal work of the country, or anything
else but just plantation laborers'
work. At. the Lahaina mill they
employ" one skilled mechanic and
the others are Japanese and Chi
nese; what is the consequence?
They are continually having trouble
and breakdowns and all on account
of cheap labor. Not long ago Mr.
Marques went to Portugal as the
full-fledged representative of this
country, his papers from the King
iu his pocket; his mission was to
secure laborers, but when he got
there he wns aked in what kind of
money the men were paid. He said,
in I. S. gold coin ; they baid, Go
to England aud get your money
changed to English coin and we will
go. He went; to England but could
not obtain the money, as the Eng
lishmen said, "Go away, we want
nothing to de with you or your
country, it is overrun with Japa
nese." A great deal has been said
about what has been done for the
Hawaiian by the old missionaries ;
we acknowledge that they have
done a great deal, but there is a
great deal that they have not done.
On the Island of Molokai there once
lived a missionary by the name of
Hitchcock, he, as well as all other
missionaries, told the natives that
they must marry the women they
were living with, and that they
must read their Bibles and live
good, virtuouR lives. The natives
listened to these teachings, gave up
their old customs, and married the
women with whom they were living.
Now, iu the last Legislature, there
was a son of this missionary who
brought iu a bill, that, if it had
passed, would have been the means
of breaking up many a Hawaiian
home, and that was, if the husband
or wife deserted one another that
they could not, without the consent
of the c-ffemllng party, be brought
together again. 1 call that bill per
fidious, and that is a specimen of
many oilier bills that this missionary
party introduced into the House,
lie spoke at length about the com
ing elections, and eulogised tho uow
election law, a.s it would check
wholesale intimidation at the polls.
He explained the law as it was on
the statute book, and cautioned all
voters to abide by it. He also ex
plained the manner of registration
und the importance of every voter
seeing that his name was on the
register. He then urged them to
select a good man to represent xhetn,
one who had an aloha foi them and
the land, and not a mere adventur
er. He said, if you don't send thr
proper man to thU Legislature yon
may as well go aud fill up with pol
and sleep the sleep of the dead. In
conclusion he said: I don't advise
you to vote for any particular one,
but select someone who has the
courage to express his opinion and
stand by it let come what may.
There are some haoles who want the
Hawaiiaus to have their rights, those
are with us, let im all pull together
and assert tlioe rights and stand
by them through anything. He
wanted the Chinee cooliw con lined
to work on the plantations, aud
when that was over, to be .sent to
his own country.
Mr. Kapule then mounted the
rostrum and, after a few lemaiks
upon the object of the meeting,
called lor a choice of candidates.
His choice was Kalamn, and he de
sired all who were in favor of him
to make it manifest by standing up.
Only one or two stood up and Mr.
Kapulc, seeing that he could not en
thuse the audience, gracefully re
tired. Among the huoles pieBent were
Capt. Hciueinnnn, Dr. Crane, and
Mr. Noble, all of whom addresse 1
the meeting, after which it was dis
missed. On Fridaj' unothei meeting was
held at Makawao, where the same
people spoke. Upon a call for votes
for choice ot candidate, Mr. Hal
stead received ilf), Mr. Kalama IS,
Mr. Knmakele 2C, Mr, Kala 0. Mr.
Halstead being the choice h' ballot
he will run as a candidato to repre
sent the district.
It is rumored that Mr. Dickey
will be run as the Ilefnrm candi
date, but nothing definite is known
about it yet.
There will be a called mcctine: of
the voters for Nobles at Kahului
next week aud then candidates will
be regularly nominated. N.

The Equitable Lite Assurance Society has adopted a new tot in ot

Always on the alert, and ever anxious to give the public ths mot
advantageous contract in life insurance, the Equitable Life Assurance So
ciety of New York has, iu the past, made many advances on old method
aud lias been the means to liberalise life assurance iu a greater degrcu
perhaps, than any other organization. It Is not at all surprising, tnetv
fore, that this great company now comes before the people with A wrt
contract, the like ol which has not before been known In lifv insurance

The Equitable Life Assurance Society has, iu the past, doue tuoro to

Consequently its business is larger thau that of auy ot its competitors.
Furthermore, it has now Uiken a step which practically sweepa every oh
jeetionof the character referred to out of the way. The result, undoubt
edly, will be that thousands of men who have, heretofore lacked confidence
in life assurunce, will examine the new policy offered by tin? Equitable,
and assure their lives forthwith.
