Urges Voters to Give Victory to

IX the Republican voters believe that
Knhio in right in his various allegations
of maladministration against Governor
Frcnr, they will elect him a dolegato to
tha Chicago convention, according to
the light thrown upon the political Bit-nation
by- tho Delegate in his address
last night in Aala Park, an address
listened to attentively by a fair-sized
crowd. Tho Delegate informed his
hearers that he felt tho tug of duty
drawing him toward Washington and
the sugar tariff debate in the sennto bo
strongly that he wns prepared to leave
in the very midst of his fight against
tho Governor, leaving his political future
in tho hands of his lieutenants, John
C Lano and Charier Achi. around
whom tho voters should gathor and givo
him victory at the April convention.
Tho Deleguto will wing his way on
the path of duty and lcavo for tho

Ho docs not go becauso the
en gar planters aro sending him, but because
his senBo of duty has grown so
keen that ho cannot longer remain away
from Washington. In recognition of
thiB tinselfish love of Ilnwnii nei, ho
urged the voters to cloet him as
to Chicago. v
Throughout his speech, Knhio made
It plain that ho expects tho April
to resolve itself into one' to
cither endorso or repudiate him, while
ho" openly1 acknowledged' that -his
duritlg the past few wooks in Hawaii
has been to work against the Governor
and create anti-Frear sentiment
among the Republicans.
The Delegate's Quandary.
Delegali Knhio, being introduced by
Jpbn C. Lane, spoke first in English,
following with a speech in Hawniiun.
The last speech in many essential
points from the English one,
'Tt is rathsr a peculiar situation to
be in to have a mass meeting
called particularly that I miht ho
beard, particularly that yonr Delegate
to congress might,bo heard. Gentlemen,
I havo rprcsonted you in congress for

against their clients on tho ground that
a huge mistake in tho status of tha
