HILO STARTING POINT

and.. Kauai To Be
The leaders of the Independent
Home Ilulc party In this city ure
watching with a great deal of appre
hension a movement on tho part of
some of the most prominent members
of the party which must result In an
open breach at some time In tho Im
mediate future. The headquarters of
this change In base from the, old party
to what will undoubtedly prove a new
party, seems to be In Hllo.
To get at the bottom of the move
ment, It Is necessary to state a few
faits'Whlch came to light at the recent
tegular nnd extra sessions of the
Legislature. Those who kept In close
touch with the reports of tho newspa
pers ut that time, will remember that
them were nntlvo members of both the
Sennte nnd House of Uepnsentatlves
who would not lie tied down by the de
cisions In various matters of the lend
ers of the Home Ilulc party. In other
words, they bucked over the traces.
This was then the nucleus of the
present movement which has spread Its'
amllWtlonk Into ull parts of the Isl-.
and of IlnwiiJLfrom Hllo nnd which
promises soon to Jump to Maul, Molo-I
knl. Oahu nnd.Kaunl. In fact the genus
of dissatisfaction are nlriiid) evident
In tills city nml the division which the

A former member of tho legislating

Jrrlty of tho natives of llnwnll would
ctrtnlnly ally themselves with the
new party at the next civet Ions nnd
the reason for their In caking away
from the Homo llulo pnrty he puts
down to the failure) of the icprcsontii
tlves of that party to eairy nut what
hud been promised. It makes no dil
feienco to them that n. great part, of
this fatluie Is said to have been
brought niout by tin- elusli between
the Executive) and the Legislature.
They only know thut they have not
received whnt they expected, nnd nio

It Is predicted that when this pnrty
