Opinion of Wilcox
h',r auvui uiiciuieieis
In the letter from Culert W Wil
cox, the delegate from Hawaii, read ct
the convention of the Independent's nt
tho morning session yesterday, wr-s
contained something regarding Section
4t of tho law providing a government
for the Territory of Hawaii. Mr. Wilcox
stated that, while the law was not par
ticularly clear, the opinion of the men
who had had the most to do with the
framing of the bill, was to the effect
Mint Interpreters could be secured for
both of the houses of the Lcgislattuo
for the good of those members who
did not happen to understand the I'll-
There has been much doubt on this
score on the part of tho native mem
hern of tho Senate and House nnd so, n
short time ago, Senator Kalauoka1.ini
wrote to Mr. Wilcox for Information.
Tho latter saw the men who had the
most to do with the framing of the
law and wrote as alieady stated above.
The announcement was most enthu
siastically received by the natives.
"The Advertiser Is nble to announce
that negotiations arc under way to
consolidate, the two street car lines of
Honolulu and supply the whole clt
and Us suburbs with a finished trolley
system. This is the business which
took Messrs. Thurston ami I'aln to the
Coast and which has sent or will send
Mr. I'aln to London to lonfer with the
syndicate which holds a controlling In
terest In the Tramway company."
Such Is the announcement made, this
morning by L. A. Thurston's papeh.
Although It Is contrary to Information
given In the Bulletin yesterday, wlile'i
should be enough to condemn It. yet
the proprietary relation of Mr. Thurs
ton to the Advertiser nffords Bomo rol
or. to tho announcement especially In
the minds of tho unsophisticated.
Col. J. II. Fisher, treasurer of the
Honolulu Itapld Transit Company, or.
being asked If there was any truth in
the statement made by the morning pa
"No. I do not see how It can be tru
without the directors knowing any
thing nbout It. Some tlmo ngo th"
llapld Transit Co. made a pioposltlon
to the Tramways Co., which was sent
on to London. Since then the honid
of directors of the llapld Transit Co
hus not further considered the mat
ter." To a remaik of the reporter that pot.
Blbly Mr. Thurston gave a private
pointer by tho Alameda's mall to his
paper, yet. unless It was n case of his
being ''the whole thing" It was strange
the directors should not be nlso In
formed, Col. Fisher said:
"He Is not the wholo thing. Ho could
not tnkc such action as that reported
without the knowledge ot the directors.
I don't believe that Mr. Thurston's visit
to the Coast had anything to do with
the llapld Transit Co."
J, A. Oilman, secretin y of the Rapid
Transit Co., could not be found when
sought by the reporter. Jus. 11. Castle,
one ot tho larger stockholders, was not
at his office today.
ROCKS FOR FIRU WALKER.

Tho last session of 'the ronvcntlon
of the Independent Home Utile party
was held yesterday afternoon In Foster
hall. During the morning session. It
had been announced thnt there would
be notli'n- but speaking during the
nftcmoLii. hut It was fully an hour be

the proginn. fci there was n lot of oth

J. K. Nakookoo Introduced a resolu
tion assessing every member of tho
Homo Ilulo party ten cents hut this
did not meet with the favor of the
delegates and the resolution was tabled.
This was followed by n resolution on
the part of J, K. Kniitla which was
heartily applauded. It provided for
the assessment of each of the members
of tho Home Ilulo party the Islands
over, twenty-five cents for the purpose
ot starting a Home Rule paper in the
Immediate future. It was specially
stated in the resolution that the sum
mentioned would bo very least ac
cepted from the members of the party.
Any wishing to put more than that
amount Into the hands of the treasurer,
(ould do so.
Tho resolution was discussed nt
length and all tho delegates agreed laid. Many have called us "nnaupo"
that this was one of the best moves tho but I think that this convention has

President KalauokalanI had prepared L. M. Keaunul, "nial na pall Haull
a regular program ot speeches, picking ill 1" (Oahu) This Is my first appear

lmvo not said much during the conven
tion. 1 have preferred to wntch and
seo what the men who have been used
to this kind of thing, would do. It Is
needless for mo to say that I have pion
ted by the experience. I must say 1
nm proud of the work that you havo
done. Great thought bus been expen I-
ed and the matters that have como up.
have been thoroughly discussed. You
have worked for tho welfare of tho peo
ple nnd ou have succeeded well. It we
continue In the same way we cannot
fall to attain tho end wo have In mind.
1 ask you, one and all, gentlemen of
tho convention, to stand firm for what
you believe Is right. One of the very
best things you havo done during the
piesent convention has been the pns--
nge of the resolution looking toward
tho establishment of a Homo Rule pa
per. A newspaper Is something wo
want above ail others. It will be our
mouthpiece through the columns of
which the peoplo from Hawaii to Nil
hail will be ablo to see what we are
doing for the welfure of tho count iv.
Therefore, give with u glad hand the
money you will beasked to contribute
for this purpose. It seems to me.
that, in casting my eyes upon the hori
zon, I seo the dawn of n new era for
us an el a dining which our ships, so
long delayed, will arrive amid lb"
bursting sun's rays,
D. Mahtika of Maul, wus the next
speaker announced. Mr, Mahuka Is ono
of tho younger politicians of tho Home
Rule party whose work during tho last
election showed up so well that ho has
been counted among thn strong men
from Maul. Ills speech was, In part, as
Centleman of the Convention I am

ple nnd members of the Independent
Homo Ilulo party. Wo have como hero
as two separata branches working to

house which tho strong will not ho

people. Let us give thanks to Him nnd
ask Hint to watch over nnd aid in.
to help our officers and our represen
tatives In tho Legislature, to lead us
to be Started Pleasant
lest we go astray. We believe In the
men we have plated above us as our
officers fltid we have confidence that our
representatives In the Legislature will
do the right thing for the people. The
men are as the military chiefs of old
who will lead us forward to battle
against our enemies. Their first care
will be to see that no blood Is spilled
If It can be helped: their next will be
to .(e that we are led to victory. I
pledge you my assistance to the end.
Wo all of us have been In want for the
past seven years. Now comes a season
E. II. Kelkl of .Maul asked tho privi
lege of saying a fw words and this was
extended to him, courteously. The
speaker told of his Island "Kn Alna
Haahco" and mentioned the strength
of the feeling of the citizens of that
place for the wolf.iio ol tho people.
He also expressed-his Joy at being nble
to attend thetonventlon.
fleorge Keklpl of Molokal I haven't
much to say. All that I would haw
said has been said by the delegates
called on before me. However. I do
want to say that I am glad the work of
this convention has been so successful.
i The foundations of strength have been
prevailed. Let us drop those matters
nnd think only of the good we have
.1. W. K. Nawal of the Oiirden Isle
(Kauai) I am glad to have been ably
to como here to meet you all. Yo'i
have struggled along and have shown
the spirit of "hoomannwanul" which Is
most commendable. Yon have been
under for a long time nnd now you
will have something to say ns to tl.i
conduct of tho affairs of your beloved
country. This Is the first time In my
life that 1 have spoken before un nud!
enco so I nsk you to pardon me fiom
P. W. Ueckley, one of the successful
candidates for the House of Represen
tatives from the Island of Maul, spoko
In glowing terms of the land of l'lll.mi
nnd concluded with the words; "I havo
been placed as n guardian over your In
terests by the peoplo of the placo from
which I hall nnd I shall do my best
to see thnt their confidence has not
been misplaced. The voice of the peo
plo Is the voice of Ood ami wo must
heed this voice. Stand firm, my peoplo
for by firmness only can you expect to
succeed. This Is peihaps tho first time
that Hawaii has been heard from by
all tha world. This is the tlmo for you
to stand firm for the right nnd for us
to gird our loins and walk forth like
strong men. Wo will bo over In your
eyes when we meet as legislators and
our lives aru In your hands tho life
or death of the nation Is In your hands.
Do not withdraw your help for, without
It, wo cannot succeed. You nro about
to leave for your homes, give tho peo
ple of your places our nloha and tell
them to pray for us nnd to ever give
us their help.
Jns. K. Kaiilla, vlce-piesldent, had
tho following to say: We havo coma to
tho end of our work nnd now we must
cast our eyes on our guiding star. Tha
earth hns quaked and from these qunk
Ings, a native Hawaiian has come forth
to lead us. He Is now In Washington
watching out for our welfare. In the
few short years that have gone by,
thero wero people who had butter wit )
their bread, whllo we have eaten our
taro with molasses. We will nuw
have bread and butter all round. If It Is
necessary to eat salt, wo will all enl
salt together. This is a change from
tho seven years that hnvo passed over
our heads. Who has brought about
this stato of affairs? No one but our
selves. Wo now havo the majority In
both bouses of the Legislature and we
will see that right Is done the people.
Let us look to our guiding star, our
delegate In Washington. Ho will help
in. Now I come to the subject of n
newspupcr that Is to be our mouth
piece. It will show to our peoplo the
strength of our party and the good
work tho party Is about to do.
J, P. Kaohl, Senator from Hawaii
Through the graclousness of Ood we
have been permitted to meet togetlur
here In Honolulu. I have had the great
honor to bo elected to be ono of your
representatives In tho Legislature to
work for the good of the people. I will
not say what wo Intend to do but will
usk you to watch us nnd sec If what .vr
do will not be In accordance with Hi"
wishes of the people. While I was run
ning for senator some of the newspa
pers made fun of me and said I should
go to Kawnlhae. I suppose you know
that the saying Is: "Dam fool Knwalh'i
uwala Illlll Kalepolepo." Well. I did not
take any notice of what they said, but
worked along, fighting for what I be
lieved to be right. What happened?
I was elected by a big majority. I wns
not such n "Kawallue" man ns they,
took me for. I ask your help In the
woik which we are about to do. We
arc not foolish people ns some hnvo
taken occasion to cnll us. I think wo
have shown by our deliberations hero
that we nre brainy men. Now then,
In closing, let me nsk you what tho
meaning of Home Rule Is. It means
that we are one grent family (not a
Family Compact) working each for tbr
good of the other.
.1, K. Paele, member of the Houso of
Ilepiescntatlves from Koolau There Is
nothing left for me to say. You have
laid the corner Btone of our party by
the ndoptlon ot our constitution. Yo'i
hnvo done many other good things
such ns tho sending forth of young men
to West Point. The newspaper Is nu
dum iiinig i iiiigut uicuiiuu. we rep
resentatives, arc our servants and we
will do what Is right.
At this point, Mahuka offered n
resolution to the effect that the con
vention adjourn to meet again in Wn.
luku. Maul, at the call of the secre
tary. This was unanimously adopted.
Jas. K. Kaulla then explained to the
delegates the wotk that had been don?

and county government lie stated that
the cummlteo appointed by tho Uniim
Rule party had not et decided on a
municipality for Honolulu but tha:
the members were studying the matter
Kalauoklanl, the chairman, had tlio
last word. He thanked tho delegatc.i
for their patience In carrying on the
work of the convention and paid a com
pliment to the old men present who had
borne the burdens ot tho two royalist
societies dining several years past.
In conclusion, ho said- "You hav
thought nnd winked with n will an.)
the result has been gratifying. You j
have accomplished a union ot t-.vo
strong societies and now the Home'
Rule party will ho twice as strong ns
It wus. I am not going to sny much,
about our work In the Legislature,!
leave that to us. I think you will be
satisfied, flo home and tell your I
people that KalauokalanI stands at the
helm. Ills money may be gono but
bis whole heart Is In the woik. We of
the Legislature will woik for the good
ot the peoplo and will follow the Con
stitution of tho United Stntes. Let Cod
help us now nnd forever."
This speech closed tho convention.
