Did Democrats Seek: Planters' Endorsement
As Protest Against Cuban Annexation ?
The political sensation of the day was sprung yesterday afternoon fol
lowing a meeting of the Trustees of the Hawaiian Planters' Association.
The meeting broke up lato In the afternoon after what Is said to have
been one of the liveliest discussions that has taken place within the portals
of the Planters' room for years.
It was stated today on the street that the Trustees had voted to sup
port E. B. McClanahan, the Democratic candidate for Delegate to Congress,
in place of Kuhlo, the Republican candidate, who has also been generally
regarded as the businessmen's candidate.
The relator of events who was quite elated over Democratic pros
pectswent on to say that McClanahan was present at the meeting and
pointed out where Cuban annexation waa the chief issue before tho Hawai
ian Islands today, and as Intervention by the Republican Administration
would lead to annexation the only proper thing for the planters as an organ.
Ization and as Individuals to do la to elect a Democratic Delegate to pro
test against the work done by the Administration.
The story also went further and represented E. D. Tenney, of Castle A
Cooke, as the man who urged the adoption of the Democratic course. W.
O. Smith vigorously opposed It.
It was also said that the majority of the Trustees flocked after Ten
ney and even three men who stood at first with W. O. 8mlth finally swung
Into line and voted with Tenney for tho Democratic scheme.
That's the story as It went down the line yesterday evening and this
When the matter was put before W. O. 8mlth this morning he was
very much surprised that any such statements should have been made.
"THERE 18 ABSOLUTELY NO TRUTH IN IT," said Mr. Smith. "IT

IS NOT SO. THAT IS ALL THERE IS TO SAY. THE PLANTERS
TOOK NO SUCH ACTION."
A more definite denial would be hard to secure, so It Is to be assum
ed that the yarn Is In the class with the Democratic statement going up and
aewn the line that E. D. Tenney has said that he will vote for Curtis lau
kea for Sheriff. When Mr. Tenney was asked about this story he said that
Uukea asked him while going along the street If he would get his vote, or
something to that effect, and he (T'nney) responded, "Sure." The tone of
voice was sufficient to convey the impression that he was passing back the
osh as It had been passed to htm.
"I am not In politics," said Mr. Trnney, "and I have not got down to
consider for whom I will vote."
Oolng back to the Planters' Trustee story, one of the leading business
men of the city said this morning thct no course could possibly be more
suicidal than for the Planters' Association to go over to the Democratic
Delegate ae an alleged protest agalnit Cuban annexation.
"Why," said he, "we don't even know that the policy of the Adminis
tration is for Cuban annexation. It would be the utmost folly. What kind
of Individuals would honest men of the. country take us-for should the lead
ing busslness interests or the men representing them flop from one party
to another on the drop of the hat, or on the remark by the representative
of an opposition party that the Administration at Washington Intends to an
i, ex Cuba?
"Some of these people seem to think that politics can bo done without
regard for principle. I never heard of such a, thing, among honest men, as
this scheme they pass up to us. It Is outrag'eous on the face of It. It Is
childish In the first place, because wr have no assurance that the Rjcse-
GOV. CARTER ADVOCATES
NEW REGISTRATION LAW
Governor Carter stated to a Bulletin
reporter I his morning that he believed
that a number of beneficial chaugea
could be made" In the present laws gov

he qualified this with the statement
that he did not make suggestions ax to
what these changes should bo, as be
believed that It was best to make haste
(lowly and not to make another mis
take such as was made by the last
Legislature In connection with the
subject. Ho said:
"The last Legislature enacted a law,
In accordance 1 bcllcvo with a popular
demand, that tho Board of Registration
should advertise a stated number o(
days beforo hand the dates nt which

in response to n complaint, that often

"THE TRUSTEES OF THE PLANTERS' ASSOCIATION DO NOT EN
DORSE POLITICAL CANDIDATES," said E. D. Tenney, when asked If the
Trustees had not endorsed McClanahan at their meeting yesterday
The reporter ventured that, while they might not have exactly en
dorsed McClanahan, It was understord that action of some kind had been
taken by the Trustees In regard to McClanahan's candidacy.
"THEY HAVE TAKEN NO ACTION IN REGARD TO THE CANDI
DACY OF MR. M'CLANAHAN OR ANY OTHER CANDIDATE," answered
"THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING IN REGARD TO THE MATTER."
A few minutes later McClanahan was seen and asked If he had been
endorsed by the Planters' Trustees yerterday or if action of any kind had
been taken by them with regard to his candidacy. McClanahan seemed to
be much surprised at the suggestion, and asked where the reporter had re
ceived his Information.
"Well, were you not called before the meeting of the trustees?" asked
"Now, I want to know who I am talking to, whether to a friend or an
enemy," said McClanahan.
"This concerns a rumor, which may make me or break me."
"You are simply talking to a newspaperman, who Is alter the facts,"
said the reporter.
