lie has always worked with the

will work in accordance with Ihe
platform of the Ameriean Union
party. A gentleman with whom
wo aro all well acquainted, it gives
mo groat pleasure to nominate
him Theodore F. Lausing. (Ap

not know that it is necessary to

that Mr. Lantiiug is a safe raau, a

Mr. McCaudloss then moved
that tho nominations close, which
was seconded nnd put to tho moet

authority for tho objection of Mr.

motion in any deliberative body.
Thoro was no othor nomination,
and it would facilitate matters to
allow tbo general motion.
Col, Fisher Batd it was a trifling
matter to squabblo ovor, but

to give his opinion, said that it
was invariably understood that
tho motion for tho secretary to

As Mr. Lansing was not present,
Col. Fisher and Mr. Kennedy
wero appointed a committee to
fetch him before tho convention.
They returned in a, few minutes
escorting tho candidate.
Mr. Lansing was received with
hearty applause, and, on being re
quested by the chairman to ad
dress tho convention, said: I did
think that, as I had boon identi
fied with tho American Union
party since its inception, my
principles were so well known
thnt I should not need to
cJrao boforo a convention to do
claro them. But a membor has
reminded mo that it is one of tho
rules adopted by tho party, that
overy nomineo is required to do
so. I thank you, goutlomon, for

Theo. F. Lansing may fairly be
regarded as ouo of tho fororaoBt
citizono of the now Hawaii. -His
career, from tho beginning of
many yenrs' residence in Hono
lulu, has boon altogether honora
ble, 'meritorious and upward.
Prior to tho dark latter days of
1892, Mr. Lansing was not ac
counted as ' a politician. Tho
evonts of that opoob, however,
moved him as it did others hav
ing a stako in tho country, and a
public-spirited mtorost in its wel
fare, to como to the front und
mako a stand for tho completo and
pormanont Amorionnizing of tho
country ob tbo only policy giving
assuranco of stability, tranquillity,
liborty and progress. Mr. Lans
ing was ono of tbo thirteen mom
bors of tho Committee of Safety
who, on January 17, 1893, throw
their fortunes and their lives into
tho balanco in proclaiming at an
end tho country's anomalous con
dition of boiug ruled by a sovor
oign assuming suporior authority
to tbo constitution, and installing
in powor a provisiourtl govorn
mout that dovolopell into a con
stitutional republic which has
boon nblo to attain to uuion with
tho greatest republic on earth.
Mr. Lansing bns for many yoars
been one of tho most vidued mem
bers of tho 'Board fo Health.
For a few mouths, when Mr. Da
mon had rpsignod to attend the
Diamond Jubilee in L union, Mr.
Lansing hold the office of Minis

high nnd onerous duties with sa
tisfaction alike to his colleagues
and the community.
Iu private affairs Mr. Lansing's
record has boen no less creditablo
than in thoso of a public nature.
For a long period ho was tho man-
ngor of tbo Inrgo importing house

in starting the Pioneor Building

It wore a blessing devoutly to
be wished by the couutry if all
who aro chosen to'make its laws
held tho same honorable record,
in publio or privato affairs, as
