Surprise for Chllllngwortlw
When Deputy Marshal Chllllngworth

disgusted to find that tho latter had no
complaint to make, even going so far

of tho caso presented Itself, tho Japan

Mr. HcClanaban the Chief Orator John
Busb Gets OU tbe Fence -The
Progress hall was filled to Its seat
ing capacity before 8 o'clock last
night, and when tho business ot the
Democratic party got well under way
tho standing room wns occupied.
Col. C. J. McCarthy nominated Dr.
John S. McGrew for chairman, who
wns elected by acclamation.
Frank Brown nominated Col. McCar
thy for vice chulrman, who was elected
Col. McCarthy delivered tho opening
remarks, Dr. McGrew desiring him to
perform the actual duties of tho chair.
He said ho had come to thlH country n
minor and although he allied himself
now ivlth the Democratic party ho had
never voted a Democratic ticket. Ho
wns born a Democrat, however, nnd In
conclusion ho expressed the belief that
tho Democratic party would tako a
large place In the affairs of this Ter
ritory. John Wise, n wcllknown young Ha
waiian, was elected secretary over tho
nomination of Mr. Peachy. Mr. Wise
thanked tho meeting for the honor.
E. B. McClanahan was called up for
a speech. Those present who had not
had experience of politics In the United
States now found two doors wide open
beforo them. It gave him pleasure to
sco so many Hnwallans present. To
read tho papers ono would havo
thought that tho question of which
door tho Hnwallans would enter had
been already settled. Tho presenco of
tho many tiawallans wns good evi
dence of their wisdom In withholding
their decision until they had seen
something of both parties. Ho told a
story ot a discussion In an Arkansas
debating society on tho respective
merits of the horso and tne cow, the
point ot which was that ho hoped that
what they heard that evening would
enable them to decldo favorably for tho
Democratic party. Tho speaker then
sketched tho history of the two great
parties, to show that tho Democratic
party had existed for over ono hun
dred years nnd had the samo vital
principles today that It had at the be
ginning. Tho Republican party was
originally the Federal party, led by
Alexander Hamilton, who was an aris
tocrat and who believed the wealthy
and educated classes should exclusive
ly govern tho country. Hamilton was
opposed by Thomas Jefferson, who be
lieved In tho pcoplo governing them
selves. His party was tho Democratic
party that stands today. No matter
how nny of Its lenders might devlnto
therefrom, Its principles remain un
altered nnd unalterable. Now tho party
that was tho aristocratic party Is fast
becoming tho plutocratic party. Alex
ander Hamilton nnd his principles had
disappeared and his party was now ono
ruling by financiers. The Democratic
party continued to represent govern
ment of tho pcoplo by tho people. All
sorts of plans had been tried to be
cloud tho minds of tho people as to tho
fundamental Issues. It hnd been at
tempted to mako tho worklngmnn lie
llcve that their best Interests lay with
tho manufacturers. Therefore It was
necessary to protect manufactures
produced In the United States by a
high tariff wall. This was a policy
that protected tho product ot tho work-
Ingman's labor, but fnlled to protect
the American workman from tho com
petition of tho scum of European la
bor. If tho American worklngmnn was
not satisfied with tho wages offered
him ho wns told ho might stand nsldo
ns hero wns a man from Europe to tako
his place. Tho man who went Into tho
mountains with his pick, tho man who
tolled In n workshop or on n farm early
and lato, was n business mnn ns much
uk n mnn who gambled on tho stock cx
chniiKo of Chicago. A worklngman's
miiscli) wns his capital and wns as
much entitled to protection as tho
manufacturer. Coming to Hawaiian
matters, ho challenged nnyono to show
that tho Republicans wcro entitled to
tho credit of giving manhood sufTrngo
to tho pcoplo ot tho Territory. Show
him ono Democrat who voted against
manhood suffrage for Hawaii and ho
would show a dozen Republicans who
did so. Yet tho nttempt had been made
to fool the penplo of these Islands Into
tne belief that their only irlends wero
In tho Republican party.
Somo Interruptions broko out here,
ono volco saying, "Tho Japanese will
fool them on tho lCth of June."
Mr. McClanahan continuing Bald -he
wns not such a bigot as to hold thn
thero wns no good In tho Republican
party. Thoso who wcro holding aloof
from both tho American parties wero
making n great mistake, it ir'ht do

RELICS OF ROYALTY SOLD
A very fair gathering of buyers wcro
present at tho Drill Shed this morning
when Chas. F. Schmcrhorn, tho facllo
auctioneer for Jns. F. Morgan, began
tho sale of royal furnlturo and relics.
Thoso -present wcro about equally di
vided between natlvo Hnwallans and
haoles, tho latter probably predominat
ing. Tho bidding was actlvo from tho
start and tho prices paid, considering
tho condition and real valuo of a ma
jority of tho articles offered, wcro very
good Indeed. Tho furniture, which
was being sold at noon wns bringing
all It was worth.
Early during tho salo It wns an
nounced that the silverware had been
withdrawn from salo for the present;
and tho rumor was soon current that
the causo was tho question of legality
of title. Minister Mott-Smith wns
seen regarding tho matter and said:
ics, tho sKverwaro has been with
drawn from tho sale. The Cabinet held
a special meeting this morning and so
decided. No, It Is not u question of
title; about that thero Is no doubt: it
rests In tho Government and all ad
verse claims havo been relinquished,
somo qulto lately. With tho Cabinet
It was simply n question of propriety
nnd it was decided to hold tho salo ot
the sllvcrwaro at somo more oppor
tune tlmo In the future."
Tho salo will continue throughout
tho afternoon until nnlsncd.
