Here Is a text which, on this Easter
Sabbath morning, the members of
the executive committee of the Home
Itule party should read carefully and
then digest for In It is contained a
wealth of meaning.
It bears directly on their recent ac
tion of nominating August Dreler as
the Home Rule .candidate from the
Fourth District to mn for the seat in
the House of Representatives left
vacant by the death of Archibald P.
Someone has blundered and by this
fatal blunder the whole of the Home
Itule party has been unwillingly drag
gcd lato an unenviable position.
AUGUST DREIER CAN
NOT RUN IN FOURTH
f August Dreler, candidate of -f
the Home Itule party and en- 4
dorsed by the Democratic party
yesterday, cannot run In the -f

Legislature must be a resident

August Dreler does live in tho

August Dreler filed his application
yesterday forenoon, tho requisite $25
was paid In at the Secretary's office
and all was thought to be well. But
how It happened that no member of
the executive commlttco of the Home
Itule Republican party detected the
flaw (n the proposed candidate's polit
ical standing previous to the lime this
application was filed. Is beyond the
Ken of the most Imaginative.
JI4NY A SUP 'TWIXT
TIIE CUPAND THE LIP
However, the fact remains that this
exceedingly Important technicality es
caped the notice of the Home Rule
politicians In the hurry of the last
moment when It was found absolutely
necessary that the party should take
some action. August Dreler was hjl
upon as the proper man. He was ask
ed If he was a voter and replied in the
affirmative. Tho majority of tho sub
committee knowing Mr. Dreler to bo
a lesldcnt of the Fourth District
thought that this was all that was nec
essary and forthwith reported his
name to the general committee and
had htm duly nominated.
The best Joke of the wholo thing Is
that the Democrats, knowing well that
Charles T. Wilder, tho man whom
they had nominated, was not eligible
as a candidate, met at the ' twelfth
hour yesterday and decided to endorse
the Home Rule candidate. A delega
tton, specially appointed, went to Mr.
Dreler and Informed him of tho action

that had been taken. Mr. Dreler sent
back a polite communication In which
he stated .that he felt It perfectly prop

ONE MORE INELIGIBLE
Theie were present nt this meeting
bucIi big guns In tho small Democratic
voting minority as I'rlnco Davltl Kn
nananakoa, Col. C. J. McCarthy, W. S.
Withers, E. I). McClanahan nnd oth
ers. It was decided at the time that
C. T. Wilder was not an eligible voter
so they immediately set nbout to en
dorse another ineligible - man. Mc
Clanahan, indeed, was dead set
against putting up any candidate at all
and. as It turns out, perliaps this
would have been tho best thing to do.
Now the Democrats will have to share
with tho Home Rulers the laugh that
Is on them both.
This very startling situation camo
to light Just previous to tho Joint meet
ing of tho Fourth District and central
committee of the Republican party in
headquarters yesterday afternoon,
called for the purpose of arranging a
plan of campaign.
SUGGESTION OF GEAR
. LEADS TO DISCOVERY
As members of these committee
were sitting around In headquarters
waiting for others to turn up. Chair
man Gear of tho Fourth District nug.
gested that he did not believe Mr.
Dreler to be an eligible candidate.
The possibility of such a thing seem
ed too good to bo true and everyone
in the room constituted himself a com
mittee of one tq look, up facts. Tho
assistant secretary of the central com
mittee was called in and he soon pro
duced a copy of tho eligible voters in
the Second Precinct of tho Fourth Dis
trict. Chairman Gear called tho meeting
to order but tho Investigations pro
ceeded and Chairman Kennedy of tho
central committee suddenly announc
ed: "You're right, Mr. Dreler's name
Is certainly not hero. The nearest
thing to It Is 'Dyer.'" ,
SETTLES AUGUST DREIER
This announcement caused Intense
excitement end Col. J. H. Fisher retir
ed from tho room to get an official
list as published during tho election
time In the fall of 1900. He soon re
turned and again it wns found that Mr.
Dreler's name was not there. This
settled the whole matter conclusively.
After the meeting further Investiga
tion was made and the record of Mr.
Dreler's naturalization Is given at the
top of this page, to show conclusively
that Mr. Dreler cannot run as a candi
date for any party In tho Fourth Dis
trict. It being kept in mind, of course,
that tho laBt general election was held
on November 0, 1900:
"the roup UW."
Tho performance of Latelkawal or
"The Lady of tho Twilight" which was
given by tho Hawaiian Dramatic So
ciety In tho Opera House last night
was not aB well attended as the orlg

SILENCE IS ENJOINED
UPON ALL REPUBLICANS
Tho members of the committees In
Joint session saw at onco the necessity
ot keeping this little matter strictly
quiet since any party might, If somo
authorized person In the secretary's
office could be prevailed upon to open
the place, file another candidate's tho standpoint of the law, that no ap
name until 12 midnight. Chairman plication could bo died on that day
Gear therefore announced In open' and this legal opinion was accepted.
Cuban Sugar Situation
Washington, March 15. It Is rather
Interesting to learn that Cuba has stor
age capacity for more than the total
crop of sugar In Hawaii. There are
many old warehouses on the Northern
coast, where sugar can be stored, but
this It not the case In the Southern
districts, though the total capacity on
the Island Is as stated.
Hawaiian representatives at Wash
ington seem to be Instructed to work
so that any concession may apply only
to 850,000 tons of the Cuban crop. If
there were a disposition to set this
limit, It would be very difficult to ap
ply It. The position of the people
landing In this country the 851st and
852d thousand tons would be peculiar
and, when shipments from Cuba ap
proached the limit set, It would seem
as If there would be such a rush to sell
or get the sugars here, that the mar-
iket would decline almotT To the ex
.tent of the benefit.
The latest proposal, to allow a re
bate to Cuba of 20 per cent, limited
to December 1, 1903, or even for three
years, impresset moat people ar being
clever and also as covering the situa
tion entirely and to the satisfaction of
all reasonable people concerned. Thin

It Is honestly believed that Cuba
would be better off with 20 per cent
deduction for three years than with
50 per cent or more. The result of a
large concession would be to unduly
develop the Industry which would
flourish unnaturally until American
grown and Cuban sugars approached
th quantity required for consumption
In this country. Then they would
lose their benefits at a time when un
wholesomely developed, and the trou

It was Bomo time before tho com
mittees succeeded In getting uown to
work on account of tho nutter that tho
disclosure- had caused. However,
Chairman Gear finally succeeded In
quieting things down and then stated
the purpose of the meeting. Tho
Fourth District committee had held n
meeting during the morning and now
wished to meet with tho central com
mittee for the purpose of mutual help.
Mr. Kennedy said that he believed
tho district commltteo should formu
late somo plan ot action, figure out
what the needs ot tho campaign would
be and then report. Tho central com
mittee would then sco what could be
FOR DAY OF ELECTION
Chairman Gear stated that the com
mittee was at a loss for a place to hold
a ratification meeting, the government
having announced that the drill shed
would henceforth and forever be clos
ed to all meetings excepting thoso ap
pertaining particularly to the govern
ment. It would, however, bo neces
sary for tho District Committee to
chooso sub-committees for the various
purposes of the campaign. Rot much
in the way of funds would bo needed
outsldo of ball rent and hire of hacks
and conveyances to take people to the
polls on election day.
Mr. Kennedy said that the work In
preparation for tho special election
was a grand opportunity to get the
committees in condition for the fight
at'lhe general election. At the last
general election, tho central commit
tco found Itself under great difficulty
because the District committees seem
ed to feci that that body should slioul
der tho wholo responsibility and work.
This should not be so again. The Dls -
trici commlttco snouiu do more nctivo
and tho various precincts should tako
their orders directly from these.
T. McCANTS STEWART
UPHOLDS TIIE CENTRAL
Mr. 8tcwart opposed the opinion of
Messrs. Kennedy and Cooko that the
central committee should tako a back
seat. To obtain party efficiency It was
necessary that thcro bo a central point
from which all activity should pro
ceed. The central commlttco should
be In touch with branches of the party
In every nook and corner of the Ter
ritory. In Ills remarks Mr. Stewart referred
to tho recent special election in Hllo
when tho central committee hail abso.

carrying on tho fight. This ho pointed
out as a case In point.
Chairman Gear announced that three
committees and a treasurer would bo
necessary In the Fourth District com
mittee to carry on tho work of tho
campaign. He suggested that somo
action along this lino be taken.
VACANCIES FILLED ON
Senator Crabbc moved that boforo
proceeding with the app6lnlmcnt of

carried, and E. A. Mott-SmitTi from the

MAKES FEW REMARKS
This completed tho business of the
meeting and beforo adjournment Mr.
Harris, the Republican nominee, was
called upon to make n few remarks.
