WHY MR. WIGHT
"Why am I n Republican, why shall I roto the Republican ticket?"
said C. I Wight, President of tho Wlldcr'Btoamshlp (Company this
morning in response to a query from a Hulletln reporter.
"I am a Republican because I believe In the policy of protection.
In other words, I believe that the worklngmcn of the United Stated
should receive wages sufficient to enable them to live better than the
worklngmcn of Europe.
"Wo have In the United States tho largest market in th'e wbrlTI suffi
ciently largo to glvo emplojment to all the peoplo of the country at
living wages. European countries hnve a small domestic market and
In consequence look to the United States to consume their surplus.
"Should the protect ho tariff be removed the wages of tbe working
men of. the United States would bo reduced to the samo level ss those
of European countries nnd tho moaey now retained In the United States
would go abroad.
"I believe In the Republican party

price, and more particularly EecatiHO the use of Honolulu as n way port
for the transport scrvlco gives employment to our worklngmcn and &

"Just before turning on to the Iwll 1

would glvo him a chnnce to escape, tij
would not shoot. I told him I had a
wife nnd child at homo but that ho
would first have to kill mo before ho
could make good his escape, I heard
tho click of the rovolvcr and felt that
my time bad come but I was neverthe
less looking for a chnnco to escape. t
