Tho system of cumulalivo vot-
ing which prevails uuder the pros
out election law adds an element
of uncertainty to the rosult which
oanuot fail to cause more interest
to be taken in the election than
would bo tho caso under tho old
way of voting. In Honolulu a
man may cast 3 votes for ono can
didate and leave the others out in
tho cold or if ho have a little
sueaking regard for one of them
ho may throw him half a voto just
for luck -and that half A'ote '
might eauso his election. Frac
tions of less than half a vote are
Tho votors who support tho
nominees of tho American Uuion
party will, with hardly an excep
tion, give each of them one of
thoir thrco votes. If thoy did not
they would endanger the oleotion
of all of their nominees.
The indopondont candidates on
the contrary go into the field with
a certain following pledged or at
least oxpocted to give them thoir
entire vote. Honco an indepen
dent candidate for whom 100 men
caBt their full vote would atand
on an equality at tho close of tho
polls with ono of the regular
nominees who received ono voto
from oach of three hundred voters.
But it is doubtful if any candi
date, on this island atleast,outBido
of the regular nominees of tho con
vention can muster cumulative
votes enough to offsot tho regular
Tho Portuguese triod this plan
in Honolulu in a former election,
as did Mr. Klemtne, but thoy
found thoy were ahort a good
many votes whou the count was
over. It is given out that A. B.
Loebenstoiu aud G. K. Wilder of
Ililo rely on tho cumulative voto
of tho Iiilo Portuguese, of whom
a large proportion aro registered,
to Bcouro their eloctiou, but both
gentlomen may find themselves
sadly deceived after tho ballots
aro counted. It should be romem-
bored that most of tho Hilo Por

mill and consequently their inter
ests aro identical with those of
For reasons boat known to
thomsolvos tho Portuguese iu this
city did not register in sutliciont
numbers to make themselves folt
in the election, even with tho
cumulative voto. In tho Ewa
district of this island it is possi
ble tho combined nativo vote
might elect ono man, but tho vote
iq not pntnhiuod aud from all ac
counts will not bo. Thero being
no other factors to consider in tho
vote of this island, it would seem
that the elections of those nomi
nated at tho coming conven
tion aro assured, but it
ehould not bo forgotten that
thoro is always daugor to
the regular nomiuoes in a cumu
lative voto and no Benso of securi
ty or certainty as to tho outcomo
should koop tho supportor of the
Amorican Union party away from
tho polls if ho wishes tho nomi
