Solid Spoochos from Sovoral
Ijnicc Attendance or
the llouc nnrt
Hon. John Phillips took the chair
as president of the Mechanics' Union
at the opening hour yesterday even
ing, lie had been absent from
several meetings lately on account of
illness and was applauded as he
entered the room. About fifty mem
bers were present, nearly all foreign
ers. When the speaking began a
few minutes later, howaver, natives
and others swarmed into the hall,
moie than doubling the original size
of the audience. The usual mining
exercise realized SC'lfl.
The president, after routine busi
ness had occupied a few minutes,
stated in effect that the special busi
ness of the evening was to hear
speeches from candidates. He further
urged on the members their duty of
voting the straight Mechanics1 Union
ticket. They would have seen his
name somewhere, but when he said,
"Vote the straight ticket," he meant
it. Whether his name was on the
"people's" or the "citizens' " ticket,
he still said, "Vote the straight
ticket," and in doing so they would
please him. It might be a case of
the olllce seeking the man, but he
could assure them the man didn't
want the odicc. He asked Hon. A.
Rosa to act as interpreter.
Mr. A. P. Peterson was the first
candidate to be called up. Before
dealing with anything else he would
contradict a statement made in the
Liberal organ, that when a deputa
tion from the Union had gone to the
Cabinet, at last session, he (Mr. P.)
said, "Oh, there's no use to heed
them ; they're only mechanics." He
did not need to deny f,hjs to those
who knew him, but to those who
ditiji't know him he would say the
statement was entirely untrue. Mr.
Thomas had boasted that he was the
only rea rpechanjp upnjiiiatcd, and
taunted the Mechanics' Union with
having nominated two lawyers. It
seemed he thought this was u crime.
But what did they want representa
tives for in the Legislature? Wasn't
it to make laws for the people? It
was all right for the Union to restrict
its own membership to mechanics,
but perhaps last session showed them
that they would have done better if
they had sent more lawyeis into the
House. However, he himself was
not altogether ineligible for admis
sion to the Union. In uis earlier
years he decided to learn a trade, so
that if he failed in his chosen pro
fession he would have a trade to fall
back on. Therefore he learned the
trade of a printer, from devil up to
editor, and if he could not get along
in law to-day, he could go into any
printing oflicc in town and earn his
hying. ( Applause.) Some of their
representatives in last Legislature
had been true to them, standing up
for the workingmen's rights on the
Chinese question, and those who had
not been faithful to them had gone
ovoi' to the enemy. As those who
had fought for them inch by inch he
could mention their hon. president
(Mr. Phillips), Messrs. E. C. Mac
farlane, C. J. McCarthy and Thos.
It. Lucas and that was about all.
The speaker further spoke of the im
portance of this question to the
workingmcu, and pledged his best
efforts if sleeted to the satisfactory
solution of the problem.
Mr. J. N. S. Williams spoke of the
gieat impoitancc of the sugar indus
try to mechanics, illustrating it by
the following summary of wages paid
in Honolulu dining the past year, on
account of that industry:
Lumber 14,000m feet, twice
handling at $1 14,000
Sugar,, 140,000 tons, once
handling at 25 cents 35,000
Coal, 32,000 tons, piling, at
Wages paid in two foundiies 210,000
Wages to bricklayers, car
penters, etc 100,000
The speaker said that with sugar
netting only 850 instead of the form
er figures of from $00 to $90, it was
impossible for the industry to keep
up without plenty of cheap labor.
But while advocating cheap labor
for the plantations, he would always
stand for protecting white and native
mechanics and laborers, in other
branches of industry, from the ruin
pus competition of Chinese. He be
lieved that this necessary protection
could be secured, feuch restrictions
could he placed on Chinese as would
prevent them entering into competi
tion with Hawaiian and European
mechanics and laborers.
Mr. Kanui vigorously denounced
certain speeches he had heard the
past week from the National Liberal
candidates. He declared he consid
ered the present Constitution to be
all that was necessary for tlio protec
tion of the rights ot all the people.
It was a Constitution under which
the people could tukc shelter as under
a great tree. Time enough to change
the Constitution when it worked op
pression to the people. When that
time cainc, if ever it did, the mode
provided in the Constitution itself
was more peaceful and preferable to
)9 advocated by those who were
clamoring fpr a new Cpnetitution.
(Applause), Anything wrong in the
instrument could be Jqpped o like a
rotten branch on the tree lie had
chosen as his figure. As Mr. Kanui
proceeded to compare the Constitur
lion with divine law, oyery period
was greeted with loud applause. The
speaker denounced those foreigners
who were goiug among his country
I ft f
men, stihlng up dlssohsloti mid fd
mcnUhg discoliient. Whan these per
sons least expected It their action
might rebound upon them with con
sequences that they would have rea
son to bitterly lament. The spenker
leferrcd to Mr. C. W. Ashford as a
"profound falsifier," and told an
amusing story of the ancient Hawaii
an times to illustrate Mr. Ashford's
Hon. E. C. Macfarlanc on being
called on, naked to be excused, as the
meeting was devoted to hearing from
lion. John Ena started his remarks
by saying the two great questions at
this election weie "those of the reci
procity treaty and alteration of the
Constitution. The treaty matter de
manded by its universal importance
to all classes more attention than
anything else. If elected he should
do his utmost to piomote improved
trade relations with the United
States, at the same lime with due re
gal d to the rights and interests of
the people of this country. The
sustenance of the sugar industry was
of prime importance and must en
gross the best attention of the Legis
lature. The constitutional question
was of great consequence owing to
its being employed more than any
thing else on the other side to" get the
voles of the people The Constitu
tion was like a man's house, in that
it was the people's protection against
ill-advised and hasty legislation. The
conduct of the Liberals in this mat
ter was as if a man, (hiding some
thing wrong with a door in his house,
should decide to tear the whole
house down. (Applause.) The
Natioual Reform party was of a class
who, in such a case, would repair the
faulty part of the house while pie
serving the structuie as a whole. He
would declaic to them his conviction
that the faults in the Constitution
should be repaired, but nothing be
done in the way of ovei throwing the
Constitution. A man who would
promise them that under a new Con
stitution they would get lands with
out price was an utter deceiver. He
believed that lawyers and mei chants
were the best people to send to the
Legislature lawyers because of their
ability (o frame laws, merchants on
account of their financial and busi
ness ability. There was no reason
he knew why he should have been
nominated except that he was a
merchant anil wag wanted to protect
mercantile interosts. (Applause.)
Mr. John F. Bowler referred to the
object of the Mechanics' and Woik
ingmen's Political Protective Union,
which was to procure needed protec
tion to the working classes. To this
end at this election they had nomi
nated the best talent obtainable to
procure their rights, namely, Paul
Neumann aud A. P. Peleison. They
had nominated Mr. Ena to look after
the interests of the merchants. There
was a true mechanic, moreover, on
their ticket in the person of J.N. S.
Williams. For the proper represen
tation of the Hawaiians they had
justly given them the whole Repre
sentative ticket. He hoped l UPir
nominees when elected would abide
by the banner hanging on their outer
walls, and when the principles of
their platform were concerned let
none of them take their hats and
walk out. With regard to the road
board, although he was a candidate
of the Union, he would say sciatoh
his name as much as they pleased,
but do not in any case scratch the
name of any of the Hawaiians on the
ticket. Whatever became of him
self, he could say he was a mechanic
who could direct how woik should be
done, and all their candidates would
try to keep the tramways rails (lush
with the slieet, to give the poor
hackmen a chance. (Applause.)
Hon. Paul Neumann was received
with rousing applause. He hoped
his good friends the reporters would
not put down any self-praise into
which he might be betrayed. (Laugh
ter.) After Mr. Peterson had won
their hearts by telling them he was a
printer by trade, how should he try
to gain their good favor? The
speaker related a story of the nearest
he had ever come to being a me
chanic or an artisan it was wheeling
a wheelbarrow up a plank m Califor
nia. He did not wonder that the
mechanics had nominated two law
yers; it showed what he already
knew that the mechanics were an in
telligent class of men. But speaking
seriously he could tell them he highly
esteemed the mechanic. The me
chanic was the pillar of the common
wealth. This was eminently dis
played in the only nation in the
world which protected its mechanics
the United States of America. No
country was truly great that placed
its mechanics in the category of the
lower classes. A great compliment
had been paid him that day, when
Mr. Robert More presented him with
a requisition, signed by 180 me
chanics aud workingmcu, asking him
to stand forkenatororNoblo or what
ever they called it. There was one
thing lie was not afraid to say, in
his own behalf, which was that he
was as independent as a pig on ice,
and being so he didn't care ono cent
whether ho was elected or not. lie
had come from a country that didn't
love the Chinese namely California.
Mr. Neumann told of a part he had
in the discussion of the question on
the Coast, aud said his knowledge of
the situution there convinced him
that until the Constitution was
amended, so as to protect the work
inginen, nothing would buIIIco but
absolute exclusion of the Chinese.
There was no middle way. The re
lief that the planter should have is
jabor that conies here knowing no
thing except agricultural labor, and
uot like the Chinese who were arti
sans In their owi) country, Tlip soft
of labor he referred to was neitlier
Chinese nor Indian coolies, but he
was not prepared to point them to
such u source of labor faupply at pre
sent. Regarding the question of a
constitutional convention, lie had ex
pressed his views on a former occa
sion, and knew that the mechanics
were too sensible to desire anything,
in tho present situation of the coun
try, which would causo disturbance
of business. The gentlemen on the
other side had not said anything very
hard about him. Even the revolu
tionary general, Robert Wilcox, had
said nothing worse than that he was
lame, but the spoker did not
know whether that meant that his
understanding was impaired. In
conclusion Mr. Neumann told a
story ttt illustrate what he predicted
would be the nature ot lite meeting
of Gcneial Wilcox, C. W. Ashford
and the president of the .Seventh
Day Adventist church the morning
after the election. A drummer car
rying a heavy load went inlo a revival
meeting and dropped asleep under
the fervid appeals of the preacher.
At the close of his discourse the
preacher asked all who would like to
go to heaven to rise. All present
stood up excepting the duimnier.
He slept on. Then the preacher
asked all who weie willing to go to
the other place to stand up, and
pitched his voice loud enough lo
waken the drummer. That worthy
uprang up and, seeing tho pieacher
standing opposite him, thus address
ed him: "Well, stranger, 1 don't
know what the meeting is voting on,
but it seems lo me you and 1 are in
a hopeless minority." (Laughter).
The meeting passed a vote of
thanks to the candidates who had
spoken, accompanied by a desire to
hear other candidates at next meet
ing. Adjourned at 9:110.

Chamberlain's Cough Itemed' is a
favorite during the winter months on
account of its gieat success in the
cure of colds. There is nothing thai
will loosen a severe cold so quickly,
or as promptly relieve the lungs.
Then it counteracts any tendency to
ward pneumonia. It is pleasant and
safe to take, and fully worthy of its
popularity. For sale by all dealers.
