REPUBL fCANS

Kaniho McCandless Rally Stirs
Up Fighting Blood of Kuhios
Local Supporters
MASS MEETING SATURDAY
Notley Urged to Run for Senate
to Allow Home Rulers
to Support Cupid
Another political mass mooting will
probably too held at Aala Park next
Saturday night for the purpose of
giving IJov S L Desha and eomo
othors who wcro attacked last Satur
day a ehanco to roply to tho remarks
made toy J M Poepoo and Kaniho
It will bo a sort of joint Republican
and Homo Rule meetinc not exactly
partisan tout it will have a Bopufo J
iican flavor just as last Saturdays
gathering was plainly Democratic Tho
Democratic gathering took the liquor
aide of tho current plebiscite discus
sion while the next meeting will prob
ably take tho other sido
In fact in spito of tho Intentions
of tooth the party organizations to
avoid formally any sido in the liquor
election tho current of ovonts seems
to land Republican leaders on the tem
perance side and Democratic loaders
on tho othej or liquor side Tho pres
ence of McCandless on tho platform
Saturday whjjo Poepoo and Kaniho
repeated tho arguments which are tho
main stock of the runners of the liquor
dealers is regarded as significant Mc
Candless toeing tho man practically
chosen already to head tho Democratic
ticket in November
A house to house canvass is tooing
made bv scents of tho liquor dealors
amqng the in many precincts
The agents are paid from 2 to 5 per
day it is stated and their rustling
is lnostly among Hawaiinns Tha ouo
groat argument used is that tho pro
posed prohibition bill is a bill to dis
criminate against Hawaiians in favor
of haolos This appears to regard
ed as tho most telling argument tho
liquor side has and it As being used
for all its worth
The details of tho Saturday meeting
have not been arranged as yet but
Desha probably be tho principal
speaker Ho will devote hlmsolf a
good deal to answering the personal
attnoks on Delegate Kuhio which were
made by Kanihonnd others on Satur
day and tho reply is likely it is said
to be an exceedingly hot one
Though it is more than two months
beforo tho time to Vote the liquor cam
paign especially tho liquor dealers
sido of it Js in full swing In addition
to using runners who are making per
sonal houso to houso canvasses appeal
ing to voters tho liquor men are pub
lishing arguments in big display type
in the Bulletin and are issuing a new
weekly paper with John Wise as edi
tor Four thousand copies a week are
being circulated among Hawaiians it
is said This strenuous and expensive
campaign so far in advanco of the elec
tion day does not tally say tho Pro
hibs with the claims of tho liquor men
that there is no danger of prohibition
carrying
Oharlos Notley Is being urged by
Home Rulers to run for the senate in
stead of for delegate to congress This
proposition is put forward as a rebuke
to Kaniho the lono Homo Euler of tho
house for his support of McCandlcss
from which it would appear that Ka
niho is not going to bo aide ti deliver
the vote
Tho Home Bulors ask Notley to get
out of the delegateship tight in order
that they may vote for Kuhio If Not
ley runs they say they do not want to
turn him down even though it toe con
ceded that he can not be elected But
if ho will run for the senate they can
still ote for him and with Bome chance
of his being elected and at the same
time vote for Kuhto for delegate

BANANA MEN
LOOKING HERE
May Arrange Effective Plan to
Market the Hawaii
Product
A FAST FRUIT STEAMER
How the Central American Fruit
at Present Shuts Out
Hawaiian
Messrs Watson and del Oito two
men prominent in tho purchasing and
distribution of bananas well known in
Atlantic and Pacific Quast commnr
cial circles as big men in the trade
arrived on tho Sierra having como hero
particularly to investigate tho QTnwalj
ian banana output and itspossiibilitics
for development
They havo mado inquiries aB to tho
tonnago per annum of output in tho
entire Islands and havo also mado a
cursory inspection of tho varieties of
bananas which pass through Honolulu
on tho way to tho Coast markets
Today they leave for Hawaii whero
they will make furthor investigations
going into Kona and other productive
districts and on their return to this
city will probo the subject thoroughly
The marketing tho banana output of
tho Hawaiian Islands has boon dona
in a haphazard manner and growers
havo been independent of each other
shipping thoir product as it matured
without reference to tho stato of the
market on the Coast At times thou
sands and thousands of bunches are
shipped up arriving in San Francisco
just when a big shpment has arrived
from Central American ports Tho
Central American product is shipped
and distributed through big agencies
and it is properly distributed Tho
Hawaiian output under such circum
stances awaits a purchaser Thero
is no association in the Hawaiian Is
lands for shipping the product and
there is no organization in Ban Jbran
cisco to protect tho shipments Often
times the bills return horamarked with
rod ink
The visitors it is said plan to effect
a systonr iby which tho -product is
shipped properly and on arrival on tho
Uoast will pass into tno lianas or tno
concern which is headed Iby tho vis
itors Tho various markets will bo sup
plied regularly and the shipments kept
on the moVM
In order to keep tho bananas moving
with some roguiarlty or in order to
handlo tho output in a systematic man
ner thero is a plan to placo a fruit
boat properly fitted rfor fruit shipping
on the run between Honolulu and San
Francisco a fast boat which could
cover tho distanco in fivo days In
addition to bananas such a boat or
boats could handle other products rol
ished by mainland epicures
DESHA DEFINES

And Denies That His District
Is Behind in Road
Making
X shall jun for tho legislature if
I get the nomination said the Rev
S L Desha yesterday If I do not
get tho nomination of tho Republican
party I shall not complain I am not
anxious about it I shall bo loyal to
tho party as always As far as
the supervisorship is concerned I do
not care to run ngain for supervisor
of Hawaii county It is up to the
party If however Jim Lewis ia
nominated for supervisor I shall work
against hiin party or no party If
such a nomination is mado you will
seo me for the first time opposing my
party
I do n6t Iby any means admit that
the roads in my district are almost tho
worst in Hawaii county as was stated
in The Advertiser yesterday In fact
I claim that they are second only to
Kona district roads und Kona is o
dry district whoro it is easy to keep
good roads
When the grand jury in Kailua
subpoenaed the supervisors to Kailua
about three weeks ago those who made
tho trip from tho IIIIo eido had a
chunco to judge of the roads Gupor
visor Shtpman of Kau told mo person
ally that the roads of my district were

said that next to tboso of Kona tboy
were tno Den in wo county
The worst roads are along the
Jlamukua coast beyond Hllo district
unless it lio tba stretch between Hllo

bad at pretest I do sot think It a
