Allotmentof Precincts as
Outlined by the Call
BASED ON VOTE CAST
AT PRIMARIES IN MAY
(Legislative Nominations Will Prob
ably Follow After General Terri
torial Convention Plat
form of Party.
The call from the Executive commit
tee or the Republican primary ca
tions to he held two weeks from to
morrow hni served to stnrt polities
booming. -The first consideration of
members of precinct clubs Is the nuin-
btr of delegates that will be allowed
each pio-inct In the District conver.-
Hon. This matter Is of no small Im-
portance since these conventions will,
according to tne call, nominate tandl-lon
datec for the Senate as well as the
House of Representatives.
There seems to be some discrepancy
In the rules and regulations of the last
convention In that the number of dele
gates to the District convention Is not
specifically mentioned. The rules del
almost exclusively with the committer,
but the supposition Is readily drawn
that It Is the Intention that the dele
gates to District committees shall con
L;itrtute the district convention and
nominate the candidates, then turn to
a a District committee and see to it
the candidates are elected.
The rules provide that each precinct
shall be entitled to one delegate fo
each 15 votes cast at the preceding
election. If after dividing by 23 there
Is a remainder of 15 or morp the pre
cinct Is entitled to un additional dele
gate, and each precinct Is entitled tn
t Wr ibe delegate unywny.
In nearly every precinct of the Isl
ands a larger vote was east at the last
rrlmioy election than ut the preceding
gnerol election, hence- the basis o5
representation is the vote east at t'le
primaries held lust May. On this basis
the District convention for the Fourth
District that ctlon of Oahu east of
Nuuanu street will have 21 delegates.
The Fifth District that section of
Oahu west of Nuuanu street will have,
in conventlcn IS or 3! delegntes, pro
vided the tventh precinct. Kallhl, Is
allowed representation on the basis of
Itf- ballot box troubles.
The representation as made up from
the returns from the primaries held
May 19 are ns follows:
Precinct. Votes Cast. Delegates,
First. Wnlklk! 94 4
Second, Makiki ....20S 8
Third, Nuuanu .... 12 1
Fourth, Roval Sch'l 12 5

Sixth Ewa Ct. Hs.... 3 1
Seventh Kallhl .....15Q? C
Eighth Achl's Hs. ..33 1
Ninth- C9 2
Tenth C2 2
The fourth and fifth districts are
each entitled to six members of the
House of Representatives. The third
Senatorial district, including the whole
island of Oahu, Is entitled to six Sena
tors. It is presumed that delegate
) from the two Representative districts
will meet separately for the nomlim
tion of candidates to the House of Rep
resentatives and also the election of
delegates to the general Terrltoil.il
convention that will nominate the Re
publican candidate for Delegate to
Congrets and name the TerrItor.nl
committee to conduct the campaign.
Having done this It Is presumed tho
two conventions will then supposedly
Join and nominate- candidates for the
Senate from the Inland of Oahu.
This It the supposition drawn front
the Executive committee's call, but
tome question has arisen us to the ad
visability of the District conventions
nominating candidates befoie thu terrl
torlal convention which will dec Inu
tile party principles or platform on
which the campaign will be fought out
The time of the Territorial conveutloi
has not bei-n set.
The attention of t'halrmun George
W Sml'h was cnlled to the fact Hint
tinder the call legislative ofllcvK
might be put In the field previous (u
the framing of the platform. Mr.
Smith stated that the matter would re
ceive piompt attention and Intimate 1
that the committee might change tho
call, having only delegates to the Ter
ritorial convention elected on Septem
ber 6. and the District convention?
called again, after the Territorial con
vention, to name candidates to the

BY NATIVE SAILORS
Terrible Tragedy Enact
ed in Lihue, Kauai,
ONE OF MOST BRUTAL
DEEDS ON RECORD HERE
Laborer Waylaid and Clubbed to
Death-Men Had Been on a
Grand Spree-Two Have
Kaapa and Uml, two sailors of the
Inter-Island Co.'s steamer Nllhau, aro
now In Jail ut Llhue, Kauai. The
crime with which they arc charged l.t
tho beating to death on Stindn) even
ing last of a Japanese laborer of 1.1-hue-
plantation on the road from that
place to llanamaulu. The news wui
brought to Honolulu tms muinlng b)
tho Ke-uuhou, Purser Sharrutt having
secured the particulars from
Hapui of the Nllluu.
The Nllhau was weatherbound at
Ilanamuulii. On Sunday, halt the
crew, constituting about ten men, all
natives, were alluwcd to go ashoie.
The first thing, theso men did was tn
proceed Immediately to Llhue where
they met friends. A lot of wine was
bought and the whole iruwd started In
to drink to their he-arts content.
The carouse was kept up during the
whole day. As night began to fall, n
glimmer of sense came to some- of th?
sailors and they coin lined their fel
lows and It was about time to return
to the steamer and so, having tossed
off n lust drink, they staggered away
As tliej were going nlong the lonc-lv
road they met six Japanese luhoicrd.
One- of tho natives demanded a siiiokc
of them. Scenting trouble hi the Mr,
the Japanese made a sudden boll anil
run ns only f lightened men can.
In the condition the nutlves were,
they were made angry by this slight
episode and so, when a little fartln-r
down the road they met two niou- Ja
panese, the) were In a fit state- to lire v.
Again came the demand for a cigar
ette oi something to smoke. 'I lie two
Japanese- tried to get uwuy but only
one siKceeded. The poor fellow who
was caught, defended himself as lie.U
he could against tiie overwhelming odds
but ho was soon beaten to the ground,
It was not long before- the vlctiu
was l)lng stretched out In the lewd,
quite still. The natives becoming
sobered by tho tenlble thing they huil
done, hurried on toward llanamaulu.
Eight of the number lay down to s!ce,i
on tho whurf but Kaapa and Uml, the
two men arrested, were evidently trou
bled in their minds, for they Jumped
Into the- water and swam out to their
In the meantime, a native passing
nlong the road over which the Hnllcrv
had Just gone, discovered the body of
thu Japanese l)ing In the load und,
making an examination, found he was
quite ileuil. Ho Immediately untitle I
the polite and, In a short time, Deputy
Sherirf like was out with a posse of
Eve i) member of the- crew who went
to Llhue, was arrested and taken to
I.lhuo Jail. Tiie- m-xt day, an Investi
gation wus held which lesiilted In thu
arrest of the- two men already men
tioned. The others were released and
are- now aboard thu Nllhau. It may be
that somo of these will again be tr
rested for complicity In the crime.
When the place where tho murder
was committed wus examined, Iiouy
sticks were found, showing that the
Japanese had not only received blciin
from the fists of the men.
The murder was otic of the most
brutal on record in these Islands. The
natives were under the Influence of
liquor when tho deed was committed.
