The abno were the candidates
nominated at the convention of the
Homo lluln pnrty which took place at,
Firemen's1 llutl Inst Thursday nfter-
noon. The cnndldates were nil nom
inated without opposition, and tha en
tiro1 work of tlio fconvcntlott was 'done
.In the ntternoon.
The main excitement of the con
vention conlcred on tho tight' ns to
whether Senator Makeknu should bo
allowed to remain in tho convention
or not. Makeknu nnnounced before
the convention convened tlmt while
tho executive committee of the party
In Honolulu might hnvo tried to ruin
him out of the pnrty, ho intended to
carry on his light before the commit
tee on credentials of the convention,
ns ho had his credentials nnd one
proxy In order, nnd held that ho was
entitled to his scat.
At tho opening of the convention
Chas. K. Notley, who presided, announced-
tlmt Mukekmr- had been read
ou(.: of the party, and tlmt ho had no
right to a seat in the convention. Mu
kokau naked to, bo heard, but ho was
Ignored by Notley nnd the business
was proceeded with, Harry Huopo be
ing chosen secretary.
Notley wont on to state that the
rules of tho pnrty provided that any
member who had taken tho oath of
lenity -to It might not work for any
; member of nny other party. Under
the constitution traitors to their paj--ly
must bo ousted. For Hint reason
both Makeknu and Kanihrt' had been
expelled. He onded his speech byt ad
vising tho delegated to work for party
Makekau answered that ho was a
member of a Homo llule precinct club
nnd n dolcgnto to tho convention. Ho
nlno held n proxy In proper form,nnd
wanted to know why he should not bo
heard. Ha had not been given a
chnnco -to appear before the execu
tive commtttco In Honolulu so he
might defend himself. On July 24 he
had signed the roll of tho pnrty ut
Wnlplo, nnd slnco then ho hud helped
no cnudldato of nny other party
When ho hnd supported Sam Pua nnd
worked for lilm, continued Mnkekau,
ho had not been a member of the
Makekau produced his credentials
nnd held them forth to the assembly,
"Will tho County of Hnwall allow
Onhu to monopolize tho power over
the Homo Itulo pnrty nnd wield It
over It?" ho cried, and tho delegates
Notley continued to Ignore Mnke
kau, but that 'gentleman Insisted on
having a hearing, nnd the chnlrman
Finally hnd to notice him.
"What do you wnnt to talk In Eng
lish for?" nskod Notley, referring to
tho fact tlmt Makeknu hnd opened his
speech with n single sentence In tlmt
, languago. "You do that so tho re
porter cm lake It down and publish
It. All the dolegates understand lln
waitnn. You have been ruled out of
the party, and you have no right to
Immediately a mighty hubbub
nroso. Makeknu nnd Notley tnlkcd at
each other nt once, and some of Jhe
delegates took n hand. It ended only
when Notley selected tho following
committee on credentials, which went
towork Immediately: John Manilla,
W. M. Kcnlanul, D. Kahowahewa and
I). 8. K. ICeoohoknpu.
Makekau stnrtcd to speak again,
but Notley Interrupted him. "I am
going nhend with tho business of this
convention," ho said. "I have noth
ing ngnlnst you, Makeknu."
After a long recess, the credentials
committee reported, showing that l6l
delegates wcro present or represented
by proxy, 84 being actually nt the
convention, The. committee declined
to pass on the Makeknu matter, re
ferring It back to tho convention.
Another exciting bit of scrnpplng
followed. Knwowohl spoke In fnvor
of Makekau, and moved that the com
mittee report be amended so ns to
dhow Hint Makekau was entitled to n
Beat. Lewis suggested that Makekau
should be compelled to pledgo hlm
pelf to support the party candidates
alone. Kcolanol nsked to place the
report llHelf before the convention.
After consldornblo further discussion,
n voto wnB tnken nn tho question ns
to whether Makeknu should be seated
at the convention or not. The secro-
To Get Filipino Laborers

That questionable means nrc being
used to get Filipino laborers for Ha

Just before Balling for Hongkong en
route to Honolulu,
Tho Hawaiian agents In the Phil
ippines get many of their laborers
for tho plantations here through na
tive Filipinos who act ns employ
ment agents, and who reccivo fifty
cents gold a head for every one they
rocruit for Hawaii, and It is proba
ble that these men uso mnny unau
thorized arguments to sign on their
feliow countrymen for the Eako of
the fifty centB per head.
The Times story follows:
An unsuccessful attempt by means
of writ of habeus corpus was made
yesterday afternoon to obtain pos
session of a Filipino lad, bound fur
the Hawaiian plantations, whom It Is
claimed ,1s going under misrepresen
tation nnd duress, nnd a second ef
fort will be ,innde to stop him at
Hongkong. Tho joung tnnn Is Mn
carlo Mnscnrlnns, aged 19, nnd It Is
alleged In his behalf that he stgnod
a contract under a misapprehension
of its terms, nnd that the taking of
him nmounts to kidnapping.
Incidentally It Is claimed that Ave
other young men of n batch of thirty
laborers, sent forward on the Tarn
Ing, deslro to be released from their
contracts and an effort is to be innilo
to secure nn Investigation by tho
American consul-generni nt Hong

Mascarinns Is a provincial who
came to town two weeks ago and
,vho happens to have friends. Ills
brother Is employed by the Manlln
Trading and Supply Company, nnd
Mr. H. J. Kappler and others of that
firm took nn Interest In the case.
Tho brother stated that -the young
man had been employed to do cor

Mr. Kappler at once called on tho
agents of the HnwallanPlanterR'' As
sociation, but, 'fhll'lrij? Yo'get much
satisfaction, went to the prosecuting
rtjtorney. The latter (derided thnt
he could hot Intervene. A call nn
the police sccureu an order for an
Interview with Mnscarinas aboard
the Taming, and arrangements were
made through Attorney Hartford
Ileaumont to secure a writ of he.
Mascarlnas was found aboard tho
ship and begged to bo brought
ashore. Ho declared that he had not
contracted to go to Hawaii and ns
serted that he wnB being taken awny
against his will, Five other mem
berg of tho party appealed to Mr.
Kappler nnd asked him to secure
their release. The writ failed to ar
rive before tho Taming sailed, and
Mascarlnas and tho others were car
ried away on It. ,
This mornluc telegrams were sent
to" the steamship '..agents and tho
American consul-goneral at Hong

asking for an Investigation. It the

votes in hU fnvor nnd Notloy pro
claimed that this was a tie.
This caused more, trouble. Makekau
contended that the voto showed n ma
jority in Ills favor, as the members of
the committees should not bo allowed
to vote, and this would leave only 48
against him. Knwewohl called atten
tion to tho fact that proxies were not
counted on a rising vote, nnd there
fore the votes of tho delegates nctu

a plain majority. Finally n voto wns
