FOR WHICH THE DEMOCRAT8 ARE RE8PON8IBLE
THE MACHINE TENDENCY IS ALWAY8 TOWARDS CORRUPTION
The affidavit published below, showing colonization In Sam Johnson's
Kakaako District, serves to Illustrate the Inevitable tendency of the machine
toward lawlessness nnd corruption.
Sonic people claim there aro good machine, and bad machine.
The truth la. all machines finally nro bad.
Sam Johnson's, Road Hoard and Garbage machlno linn been considered l.v
many to be In a class above- and better than Hrown's Pollco machine
What Sam Johnson has done to nld Rood candidates, and In the illn
charge or hlu duties at Itoad Supervisor, would appear to Justify that con
tention. Hut Sam Is going the snmc road Hint all men go In machine politics.
They all come Anally to consider tho machine a personal asset to bo
administered first In their own Intermit), nnd second In tho Interests of the
And that Is Sam, Johnson's position today.
Ilrown, with his forty-six policemen, nnd Sam, with as many more from
the (larhagc Department, controlled the last Republican County Convention.
Tho two together could have named any one they wanted for Supervisor,
or any other onicc. '
Tho ticket actually named was as poor as they thought the Republican
party would stand for, and wns selected primarily with a view to the Inter
ests of Snm Johnson and Drown, with the public Interest a bad second.
Some good voters have been hoodwinked Into tho Idea that these two
machines arc not working together this election.
Let nobody fool themselves.
Sam Johnson's machine Is going to support Drown all right; and
tlronn's machine Is going to support Sam's nominee for Supervisor,
A. V. Gear;
And any one who thinks otherwise Is going to bo Badly left.
The machine otc, hacked with money nnd liquor, Is a hard proposition
to heat; nnd whllo the Democrats nre working earnestly for success, and
hope for success, they do not nt nil minimize the danger of frco liquor, cor
rupt registration, nnd corrupt voting, which arc ever the handmnlds of the
machine, and Inevitably make their appearance with It.
In Ilawnll, whero the mixture of nationalities nnd other chances for
appeal to prejudice mnkc the work of the machtno doubly easy, tho Inde
pendent voter must be doubly Independent, and prepared to hit tho machlno
early In Its existence, without mercy. In whatever party it appears.
Machines should bo crushed In tho egg.
Sam Johnson's machine has been nllowcd to hatch, and Is growing apneo
and unquestionably Is beginning to smell.
It cannot be cut on too soon,

In Honolulu tor mo elgnt years lasi pasi wnn 1110 exception 01 nuuui iwumy

December, 1903, and have resided hero ever since, during all that tlmo having

fied nnd registered voter for tho Fourth ncprescntatlvo Dlstilct of tho County

After returning" from San Francisco In December of 1903 l' worked nt
tarlous Jobs, during most of knld tlmo as a laborer; In June of this year,
(1906), I was looking for a Job and went to the government stables early
' one morning, about C:30 o'clock, In search of employment; (ho stab lea I
speak of are located nt Kakaako and Charlie Costa Is tho head luna In chargo
under Sam Johnson. On the morning thnt I went 4hcro It happened that
they were short of, drivers and Charlie Costa gavo mo a Job driving a dump
cart; I was put to work hauling coral from a point behind tho Honolulu Iron
Works for use In street work nnd for about flltccn days I continued In this
employment, at the end of which tlmo 1 was let out together with n number
of other employees, as I was told, because thero was no money for tho carry
ing on of street work. I was out then about thrcn weeks, I think, when one
morning I met Manuel dc Mclto on the street nnd ho told me that he thought
Costa would put the boys back to work the following Monday, This Manuel
dc Mcllo was a luna In the street sweeping gang of the Road Department.
Acting on tho Information he gavo me, on tho following Monday I went to
tho Btablcs In Kakaako and Charlie Costa put mo to work In my old Job. I
worked then for about fifteen tlajs driving n cart In tho sweeping gang
under Manuel dc Mcllo as luna, and rcccled for my services $1.25 a day.
One morning during this time I went to tho stables ns usual to go to
work, when Charlie Cotta camo up to me and asked mo whore I was living.
I told him I was living on I'unchbowl, Quarry Street; ho said for me to move
down to Kakaako If I wanted to hold my Job. I told him I could not move
down there and he snld, "It jou don't move hero as I tell you you will cer
tainly loso jour Job." I asked him why he wanted me to movo down there
and he said that tho primary elections were coming on and that I had to bo
there thirty days before election so I c ould oto In that precinct at the coming
Republican primary. Ho said that the election was to be, held early In Sep
tember, as I remember It. I told him that I was a married man and that my
wlfo and I lived In a house by ourselves
not want to lle In Kakaako anyway, and that I could not vote In two places.
He asked mo where I voted at tho labt election and I told him at tho voting
place at tho court house In tho Board or Health building; ho then Bald, "Well.
If jou don't movo down hero you will not havo any moro Job In tho Iload
Department." 1 did not move and two days after this I was discharged with
out any reason being given me. When' I went to work that morning I found
that bomconc had already taken my mule, and thcro was nothing for mo to
do. 1 was given no reason at all for being let out.
The talk that Costa had with mo as abovo related occurred in tho morn
ing when I first went to work and I do not think any ono clso heard It. That
afternoon, however, when the gang had come In from work Charlie Costa
called tho boss together and mounting on the steps told all present (about
-. or 10) that If they wanted to hold their Jobs they would have to move Into
the Kakaako precinct and live thcro thirty daya beforo tho primary election
bo that they could vote thero then. Ho said he wanted evoryene tii iintlei
btand that thcro was no Job for anybody who did not do as he told him and
move down Into that precinct. After that tlmo I know that some of the men
working In tho gang and who wero present when ho mado that statement
did movo down to Kakaako near their Jobs. That Is thoy would tnko a loom
mere nut whether they slept In that room or not I do not know. None of
them moved their families thcro with them, but lelt them whero they had I
been previously residing. Most of these men wero married and'had families. I
Among othern, thero wero Manuel Itaposo, n married man who Uvea en
Quany Srcet, I'unchbowl, nonr whero I llvo; two men from l'unahoii. both
of whom weio married, ono by tho nnmu of MartlnB, and another by tho niime

and llverost domes, who lives on l'unihbowl. Quarry and Klnau Streets. All
or llit'tio mru I imvo mentioned moved Into dm Knknako precinct ami I think
they aio registered thero fTi votu at thu coming election, hut as I havo abovo
