IACUINB MEASURES KILLED
After two days of arduous hones'
iTort, careful discussion and sharp
ontest against tho chicanery of out
idc machine manipulators who do
satcd at tho primaries hoped to
hecdlc tho convention Into passing
uIcb to destroy tho Republican party,
ho first Republican convention of the
territory closed Its session with Its
.vork well done, with tho machine
outcd and discredited nt every point,
vlth a completed plan for party
ictlon that will appeal to every honest
toicr of the Islands. Todny dlscomll
,uro rests only with tho clique that
loped to forco gng machlno rulo upon
tho Republican Party and In the
hearts of the Democrats. Tho prin
ciples expounded nnd tho rules laid
Jown to guldo Party activities aro In
smnploto accord with tho well recog
nized tenets of tho national leaders, In
-coping with the broad and liberal plan
of Territorial government framed by a
Republican Congress nnd demonstrnto
In every dctnil that tho Republican
Party offers no barrlcis to any citizen
w..w believes In government of, by and
for tho people
As was recognized by every well In
formed citizen tho success or failure
of tho convention depended upon the
rules for general party government
promulgated by the delegates. The fac
tional mnchlno for which tho Adver
tiser had worked secretly nnd not with
out showing conslucrnblo capacity for
political chicanery tried unsuccessfully
to carr ytho dny. Imposing upon tho
honesty mid good Intentions of the ma
Jority of tho committee on organization,
tney wero so far successful ns to se
cure tho Intioductlon to tho convention
of a report nlmost an exact copy of the
machinery by which tho most corrupt
manipulations of Tammany Hall mo
conducted. Tho men who havo cried
mnchlue, nnd nrrogated to themselves
tho cuampionshlp of puro politics
showed their truo hand at tho last
moment as It was expected they would
do. At this Inst show-down they cham
pioned tho machlno methods of most
corrupt corruptlonlsts. Rulo or ruin
was their cry. Thanks to tho sound
common sense of tho delegates the
Thurston-Carter ring neither ruled nor
ruined. The schemo put forth by their
heuchman was gutted and quartered,
almost expunged from tho records nnd
finally so completely upset and re
modeled that Its own father would not
recognlzo the child.
'i hanks to tho ablo efforts of A. S.
Humphreys, A. B. Loebcnsteln, C. P.
Iaukea nnd able supporters whoso mo
tives and acts tho official organ has
constantly striven to Impeach, tho
schemes of tho machine manipulators
wero exposed, tho trick laid baro and
the Republican party saved to tho peo
ple. Tho arguments wero so convincing,
the facts so apparent that even tho
chairman of tho commlttco who Intro
duced tho report was forced to accept
the numerous amendments proposed in
the Interests of honest and liberal poli
tics. Tho scheme of tho machlno manipu
lators to keep voters out of tho party
was epitomized In tho following para
"Sec. .4. After said permanent organi
zation nil applicants for membership
must nttend at a regular meeting of
tho precinct organization in which they
reside, and sign an application for ad
mission, In which said applicant shall
state that ho Is a resident of said pre
cinct, Is In sympathy with tho princi
ples of tho Republican party, and ho
intends to voto for its candidates. Said
applicant shall bo referred to a com
mittee on membership, which shall In
vestigate said applicant's eligibility
and report thorcon. A majority voto
of tho members present at such meet
ing shall elect."
Also In a section placing a prlco of
annual dues on membership In tho Re
Further by requiring that registra
tion for Party primaries closo flfts'jn
days before holding tho election.
Tho first section was wiped out by
tho hearty unanimous vote of tho dele
gates. The second nefarious stab at voters
not blessed with wealth of coin fol
lowed tho same course. Membership n
tho party Is mado as frco as tho suf
frago granted by tho American consti
tution. Tho third mnchlno job was so amend
ed as to leavo tho primary rolls open
till tho closing of tho polls, thoreby as
suring every Republican voter tho
right to cast an untrammclcd nnd
A greater victory over a small coterlo
of machlno manipulators a factor that
shows Itself in every party could not
bo desired. It is to bo hoped that hav
ing met with overwhelming defeat, tho
machlno will show Its good Judgment
by accepting tho will of tno peoplo wUh
tue same degree of honesty with which
tho defeat was administered.
Tho final result Is tho launching of
tho Republican Party upon tho sea
of public favor, trco from nil traces of
corruption or bigotry, a staunch craft
capablo of withstanding every political
storm of opposition, broad and deep,
capablo of carrying overy American
citizen rich or poor, tho only credential
naked being honest, loyal intelligence
Tho Republican party as It now stands
knows no division of prejudtco, It al-
lows no rulo of minority factions.
