Honolulu, January 28th, 1910.
W. II, Ileers, Esq, Chairman of tho
Hawaii County Committee, Hllo,
Dear Slr:c-In a careful survey of the
general conditions affecting tho local
Republican party, tho Executive Com
mltteo of tho Republican Central Com
mltteo, finds that action on tho part of
Committees at the head of the party Is
necessary at this tlmo to begin to
shape the party for tho com'ng cam
paign. Tho political status ot Hawaii
requires- todaj, moro than over, tho
most careful and assiduous attention
of every citizen who believes In tho
preservation of our Territory's welfare.
Standing at' tho threshold of 1910. wo
ask ourselves, as wo read nnd giio
over tho alarming newspaper articles
based on cablegrams recched from
tho capital ct tho Nation, what shall
the year bring rorth concerning our
system or government and what new
forces are to Insptro and direct tho
Hawaiian peoplot or courso, tho con
fidence wo havo In tho Republican
party doos not glvo us .occasion to
fear of any chango contrary to tho
advancement Hawaii Is making In Us
social and political avenues, but a
realisation of tho fact that wo havo
to contend with opposing elements,
destlnod not to prompt our welfare but
merely to obstruct tho sound policies
of tho dominant party and to wreck
tho prosperity which this homogeneous
tuiuuiuniiy-s pcaceiuuy enjoying, war
rants Immcdlato action on our part to
avert any adverso movement.
In this connection, we plan to em
ploy an assistant secretary to conduct
the campaign work which will bo out
lined by tho Central Committee. Tho
naturo ot the office will be permanent.
Tho Commltteo has at this tlmo In
consideration tho names of a few ells
tblcs, but beforo deciding' upon tho
selection ot ono wo regard It proper
to Invito the views or tho County Com
mltteos as regards tho qualifications
of each ot the two below, to-wlt:
I-orrln Andrews ami C. R. Duckland.
Mr. Andrews Is an attorney by profes
sion, and Mr. Bucklnnd Is a Journalist.
Ono Is a politician nnd tho other a stat
istician. Tl'Of selection should bo an
satisfactory to tho outsldo committee
as to tho Executive Committee be
cause a great deal of the wotV will In
volvo certain relations between tho
headquarters and outsldo districts. It
you will give us tho lews as request
ed wo shall reel disposed to act more
Intelligently as to tho attitude ot the
several CQuntifcdmniittecs In this mat-
tcr- . oj
Thanking you In aihanco for any
action you may tako In this regard, I
am, Respectfully yours,
f A. D. CASTRO,
Secretary, Executive Commttt:c.
in tlio meantime Dcslin had received
a number of letters rrom politicians
and his frlonds protesting against his
opposition to tho appointment of Duck
land, and, In answer to these, he sent
a letter. In Hawaiian. Jo fleers.
In this letter, says Boers, Desha
stated that at tho meeting in ilonoluiu
last Tuesdiy he had ghen his reasons
why he did not consider Duckland the
best man for, tho position, tut In spite
of this tho majority or those present
wero In favor of the Hllo candidate.
Tho following day, continued the let
ter, It had been found that Andrews
had failed to recolvo the appointment
as Attorney General,, and tho matter
was taken up again. Tho names of
Duckland, Castro and Andrews had
boen considered, and It had been gen
erally thought that the latter would
bo the best man.
"Tho leading Republicans of Hono
lulu, together with Achl's -party, sup
ported Androws," snys this letter.
"And they stated that he would be
tho best man to bring back Into tho
party those who nre now opposing It,
so It Is no use for you people to blamo
me, for I alono (lid not do It."
Krom nil tho abovo, and from prlvato
advices, the sitttitlon now appears to
bo as follows: In tho stait thero
wero but three names considered,
namely those of Castro, Connoss and
Duckland., If, Is certain that Castro
would not take the position. Conness'
chances may bo considered as neglig
ible. Duckland was thorefore a good
fivorlto In tho raco. Dut tho situation
becamo complicated when Trcar tailed
to nppolnt Andiews Attornoy General,
and when Sutton wob appointed to the
position ot Deputy Attorney General
rorrncrly held by Andrews. This left
Andrews avaljablo, and the candidates
nre now Andrews and Duckland. Tho
former has tho strong support of many
Honolulu party men, having tho ad-
nntage ot being on tho spot, and while
the Achl forces, having boon patted
on the back nlcoly lately, presumably
for the purpose or bringing them back
Into tho fold, havo lined up with An
drews. There romalns tho Hawaiian
element In tho capital, and this Lano
and Chllllngworth hao always claimed
to bo representing. Their Influence
with tho Hawallana Is probably not ns
great as they would havo headquartors
bollovo. but tho) hnvo always been
l'sfencd to. Chllllngwortli has ot Into
j cars had a leaning towards -the Ail
oitleer, and Androws is Thurston's
ii"phew, Xane Is Desha's co lieuten
ant of the Delegato and as a conne
qiiTcn It I" Plain that Duckland and
his Hllo supportors hoyo a pretty stiff

OF JS CRIME
Grace Admits He Was
Slayer Of Mahu At
Through a completo confession
made yesterday afternoon by Ander
son Grace, the mystery of the mut
dcr at Watertown of Watchman
Mahu has been solved and tho first
step mado by the guilty man to
ward the gallows.
Qrnco broke down before United
State3 District Attorney llreckons.
Marshal Hendry and High Sheriff
'Henry, nnd admitted that all tho
stories he told before, wero (also
and that he was tho slayer of Mnhu.
From the details or, his confes
sion it was a cold-blooded murder,
brought on by a fixed belief that
his victim was too familiar with
Mrs. Grace, and that Mahu wns pur
suing a systematic course that would
result In Grace losing his place, '
Graco confessed that he waylaid
Mahu, shot him once and, when his
victim fell to the ground, struck
him three times over the head with
an Iron bar and then fired two more
shots into tho body.
Kahunalsm also plays a part In
the tragedy, Grace telling the offi
cers jesterday that he believed that
a kahuna In the pay ot Mahu was
casting an evil spelt over him and
that ho paid another person with
knhuna power to do likewise tor
Mnhu, but the efforts were not suc
cessful, and Grace then says ho re
solved upon Mahu's death.
When Graco decided to commit
the murder ho resolved to call upon
his wife for aid. Mahu's beat was
a mile away from that or Grace, and
to provent his absence rrom his own
beat being known on tho ratal night,
Grace had his wire turn the key In
his time clock while he went off to
commit the murder.
Tho confc83lon,of Grace clears up
what promised to bo a battling mur
der mystery and reflects particular
credit on tho work of United States
District Attorney llreckons and Unit
ed States Marshal Hendry, who
early becamo convinced that Grace
woh tho murderer, and left no stone
unturned to connect him with the
li Ime. The two officials received
nsDhlnnco fiom Chief of Detectives
MiPuffie and Sheriff Jarrett, but be
en lue the minder occurred on a
United Btates reservation, Dreckons
nnd Ilcndrj had chnige ot the case.
When the not ,ot circumstantial
evidenco began to tighten about
Grace, he tiled to shirt. the crime
to n joung Hawaiian named Keau,
who was plum I under arrest, but re
leased esterduy bofore Graco con
fessed. t '
When Grape had ronfessed, his
wire was brought before Dreckons,
land on learning that her, husband
nau ioiu evoryining, corroDoraiea nij
statements. When sho was excused
Mrs Grace passed her husband
without a woid and huritedly left
tho Judiciary building.
U. S. District Attorney Dreckons
stated this morning that but a small
part ot tho credit for tho running
down or tho murteici or David Mahu
was due to him. U. 8 Mp-shnl Hen
dry, Sheriff Jarrott, arid Chief of De
tectives McDuffle collectcl facts that
show clearly Graco was tho murderer.
"In the matter of ..the confession,"
said Dreckons, "William Henry wns
of very material asslstanco. As a mat
ter of fact, the flvo of us worked to
gether and did all wo could in om
power to boIvo the" mstery. That
success attended our efforts Is due to
no ono particular Individual, but to
that which always accomplishes re
sults, harmonious, strenuous e.lo.t on
the part al all persons engage I In for
rutins out crime."
