DUTY OF THE
Tito Itcpuliltcnn convention which
mtcts tomorrow In tills city has :i
moru Important duty to perform than
thu Territorial contention 'that nam
ed the Delegato to Congress mill out
lined the program of the party.
Thu mi'ii whom this contention
will naino tiro to malio nml adminis
ter the local lawn of tho Territory.
They nrc tho men whose nets will ro
llect credit or dishonor on the good
mime of tho people na to tluir capac
ity for bclf-govcrnmcnt.
Our platforms may read well nnd
our Intentions bo iwcellcut, httt If tho
icprcscntnthts of the continuing par
ty of tho Territory are not able to
becure men who uio cilUlent and pn
tifotlc, the result will be Indifferent
success if not disaster
County delegates will hare a dlfll
cult task to pei tv. 'u because of tho
unusually largo l.uuibcr of offices for
which they hate to select candidates.
In tho contest that will ho made for
one or two leading nominations, ex
treme care should be exercised that
portions of thu ticket shall not 'bo
blighted so that the Until plate will
show up with men of Indifferent ca
pabilities In vital positions.
Tho Republican party of Oalttt has
men offering on tho list of candidates
who will nmlio tip a ticket of u very
J high average. It Is Impossible to .get
5 all tho "best men" In nny'tlclcrt be
cause there nro never enough to go
aiounil If we use "best men" lit tho
theoretical senso used by party crit
ics. A fair nvcrngo should bo struck.
The higher the uteingu tho better.
At tho present time., tho prospect
is very good. Men coming' Into the
lists nro of n type In whom tho nvcr
ngo business nun nnd tho nvcrngo
worUlngmnu has confidence. Tho re
sponsibility Is with tho delegates of
the umventlon to see that thu events
of tho next forty-eight hours fulfill
the promise of the present. It tests
with them to keep their heads, excr
clso Judgment, and never loso sight
of tho fact thnt sacrifices of self-respect
In political trades will Jeopar
dize tho party at tho polls nnd may
retard the in ogress of the Terrltoty
through tho Inconipetenco of weak
nml possibly dishonest olllclnls.
As tho Munition stands today tho
danger line runs to tho candidates
for legislative positions, Tho Repub
lican party of Oalttt should havo men
on Its Senatorial ticket who havo
been tried in legislative work If pos
sible and found not wanting. It has
been tho common custom to demand
that tho Senatorial ticket shall meet
the npptotal of tho business commu
nity, nnd this Is cittlto proper because
tho employes generally nto as deeply
Interested In high standards' as tho
employe! s. Tho approval of the bus
iness community, however, should not
bo assumed to ceaso with tho Sena
Tho Territory should linvo men of
common sense, high purpose, and In
telligence In tho House of Heproscn-
tatltes. Wo don't want candidates
for tho IIouso whoso chief pttrposo
In office will bo to crento n lot of
freak stuff which tho upper houso
nnd tho Kxccittito must tvasto time
And flnnlly In nil tho lcgihlntivo
schedulo thcro Is nono more Impor
tant to the causa of developing local
government than the candidates for
Supervisors of tho City nnd County
of Honolulu. Thct-o positions must
not bo used as pawns, to bo given
owny in tho gamo of landing some
nomination prize about which, for
ono cause or another, public interest
Tha Supervisor, Ilko tho membors
of tho Legislature, will set tho pace
of community progress.
Material for n very strong Repub
lican ticket has been marshalled
within tho last fow hours. The con
vention delegates nro depended upon
to select from this a combination
that will strike the highest average.
If factional threats nro taken Into

231-2 INCHES WIDE,
Commissioner l'rntt this morning
gate mi outline of tho manner In
which reclaimed lands would bo doled
out to the homesteader. At first ap
pearance It might seem that lnn-J
which tho Government hns spent
largo sums In reclaiming would cost
tho ptospectite homesteader consid
erably moro than that which Is en
dowed by nature with everything nee
essary for farming. This Is a mis
take, however, for tho Bottler would
be given practically the Bitmo terms
on reclaimed land, with Its perma
nent water wni system nnd assured
freedom from drought under ordi
nary conditions, ns he Is for land that
has no ditches or lcclamntiou syslom.
Ten years Is given tho settler In
which to pay for tho land, tho cost of
tho construction of tho Irrigation
ditches, etc., nnd tit tho end of thnt
tlmo ho Is given his freo title to tho
land nnd a Water Users' Association
is formed to keep up tho reclama
tion scheme. This practically gives
tho reclaimed land settler nn advan
tago over thn man who Is on land
that has not tho permanent 'assur
ance of water. The settler pays for
tho land nt Its value beforo reclaimed,

TO GET THIS YEAR
NEW YORK, N. "V., Aug. 30.
Hoth of tho National campaign com
mittees find it hard work to rnlse
money this year. Hoth find It ncces
snry to cut tholr cloth accordingly
and plan for relatively small expend
Itures, Tho Democrats aro virtually
living "from hand to mouth." They
started In with about SCO, 000, tho
unexpended balance of enterprising
Denver's $400,000 convention fund
Up to drfto they havo taken In an ad
ditional- sum of nbout $25,000, tho
r.ggrcgnto of a large number of small
subscriptions, raised chiefly by Dom
ocratlc newspapers in tho South and
Tho program which tho Democratic
managers have laid out calls for u to
tal expenditure of about $500,000,
but thoy have no Ide.t whoro tho
money Is coming from. One thing
they will nol bo able to do, and that
is to send money to doubtful States.
It Is probablehat neither committee
will be able to do this. In tho old
days, Indiana nnd nil other debatablo
States made 'heavy drafts upon tho
National committees. That part of
the gamo Is vlttually played out. It
tho local managers In tho Stato feel
n sora need. of money this year tho
probabilities ,nro they will havo to
find It at honjo or go without.
The Republican nfuhagcrs are hav
ing their 'troubles, too. They have
In band u small bu-t comfot table sum.
conti United chiefly by Charles P. Taft
nnd a few-oilier Indltldunls. Hut
they have In jiOcket or In sight much
les3 than u'sitnl at this stasa of tho
campaign, and, like their i!vals.of tho
other lommlttce,' do not know where
Wile bulk of tho fund which they need
Is to come from.
-Of cou i e, tho corporations arc not
subset lblng this year. They can't
because It Is forbidden by-law. Not
many would put up more than very
meager sums, oven If tho law did not
stand In the way. Indltlduals nro
slow In coming to tho front with their
offerings, and great efforts me being

ties to tup tho bank accounts of their
friends and Wcll-wishcis.
