AFTER THE BATTLE.
Honolulu ha never seen sucli a li.ucl fought and well fought convention
m that held by the Republican party on Monday for the election of dele
gates to the Republican National contention.
It is to be hoped and the Bulletin believes that the aftermath will
be a better organized and a more united party than has ever entered a cam
paign in -this Territory for the election of government officers. Anyone with
the slightest knowledge of the science of government must realize that two
contending forces, between which llii minority and majority were deter
mined by such a narrow margin, so well organized, so ably led and so fired
Ivith enthusiasm, must be absolutely invincible when brought together in a
movement for a common cauje. To bring about such a combination and
do it effectively should be the constant aim as it is the certain duty of every
man in the Republican party.
We believe the duty of getting these forces working together harmoni
ously is a matter of more than ordinary community interest at this time. We
are certain that it is a necessity of th success of the Republican party.
It must be remembered that the sobd minority, that fought the conven
tion contest from the "drop of the hat" in the morning till the last vote was
Cast in the evening, was made up of unbought and fearless men. If some
of them are thought of as wild-eyed radicals, we must remember that we
have to have the radicals as well as the conservatives in this world. And
the other side is not without red raggen. These delegates gave their lime and
effort to what became to them a matter of principle. And they will do
the same thing for the Republican pally this Fall, provided they are treated
with the respect they deserve, and which the good sense of party managers
should naturally suggest.
j That is the situation today as the Bulletin sees it. The opportun
ity is here and now for welding under the Republican banner the greatest
and most efficient political organization for efficient government that has ever
been known in Hawaii. This welding can't be done with a club; it can be
done through the exercise of good judgment and a conciliatory spirit a rec
ognition of the fact that it was a "good scrap" splendidly fought and now is
the time to get together.
For this reason the Bulletin r frains from a line of comment that is
quite usual in convention aftermaths where an issue develops and becomes
, The greatest and most important is ue before the citizens of Honolulu and
Hawaii today is capable self governm-nt, a government that will do well the
jgreat tasks that are before the people 1 1 the next two years. The Republi
can party should set the example by sh .wing that it can govern itself in a
manner best suited to giving all the pc pie representation, and every man a
We have to remember that in the finiUsliow-dotvii the ballot is secret and
every man votes as his conscience directs.
So if anyone "feels sore." forget it. Go forward, not backward; work,
not haggle. Play the game.
