(Prom Saturday's Advortlsor.)
VOTES FOR WOMEN1
This is to be ono of the slogans of
fhn Democratic nnrtv this fall. Not
only is Leader Link McCandlcss for
Women" is ono of tho very things
Mayor Fern has been pining for.
Tho Democratic platform will have a
"Votes For Women" plank in tho most
conspicuous placo, while tho convention
on Monday may go to tho length
of endorsing Joe Fern's ndvico to
President Tnft that woman's suffrage
should not only bo taken up immediately
in a special message to congress,
but should bo given priority over every
other question botoro congress.
At last night's meeting of tho central
committee the Democratic faithful
almost forgot tho precinct fights in tho
general eagerness to boost for an extended
franchiso to include tlio moro
deadly of tho Bpecies. It canio up in a
communication from tho Demoernts of
tho fourteenth of tho fifth, which demanded
that tho Orgnnic Act bo
amended so as to give tho hand that
Tocks the cradlo tho full and unlimited
Tight to voto in both primaries nnd at
least onco every election day.
Tho letter from tho fourteenth, in
fact, fairly bristled with ideas concerning
desirnblo legislation, but it was
sadlv mixed up. for in tho first section
it Btatcd that tho precinct was heartily
in favor of every plank in tho 1010
everybody should get together and
work for a Democratic victory. Link
never batted an eyebrow during all
this "love-feast" talk.
Joe Invites Himself.
The mayor then paid he hud seen
something in the papers nbout a Democratic
caucus to be held tonight at
the Hirano Hotel. He asked whether
this was for delegates only, or whether
members of tho central committco
would bo admitted. Link thought fast
for several seconds and then blandly
smiled nnd said that possibly no objection
might bo made to the officers
of tho committee being nresont. How
ever, it would bo up to the dolegntes.
There might be a littlo pow-pow first,
and they might then decido to hold a
caucus, in which caso "Hlzzopcr"
would have to retire.
A committee consisting of Johnny
Wilson, 3, K, Palau nnd G, Keawehaku
was appointed to extend the glad hand
today and tomorrow to arriving delegates
from Hawaii, Maui and Kauai.

Aracations at full pay and lasting for

of a year's service for a year's pay.
Dy a coincidence, tho question ot
whether nn ordinance shoul.d bo brought
beforo the board to limit the length of
vacations, was. referred to Deputy City
Attorney Milverton, whose six months'
vacations in Kona, Hawaii, at full pay,

asked for a quarter of a yenr's leavo
of absenco nt full pay, in order that ho
might go to tho mainland to try tho
medicinal qualities of various springs.
The request wis roforred to a committee
whicli last night reported favor
ably. Supervisor Murray, however,
called a halt. While announcing that
ho did not single out this case becauso
it was Mr. Miohlstcin's application, ho
stated that the long-vacation mnttcr
was becoming too much of a habit,
especially when full pay was asked.
He said that tho territorial employes
were limited to two months nt full pay,

Hot on tho trail of J. P. Cooke, who
left Honolulu for Maui' in the Mntson

presumably to do politics with delegates
to the Republican convention on
Monday, "Tearful Willie' Coelho started
back for Maul last night on the
Claudlnc, being given a short leavo of
absence by tho organization.
The nows of the departure of the
Tnft League president camo some time

result being that Coelho was picked

It .has been a caso of tho pot calling

has picked Judge Dolo of the ninth
precinct, fourth district, for permanent

In the Democratic camp, or moro particularly
that part of the camp where

tooth and nail to have tho whole matteT
clinched on Monday. Ho will take no
chances. Ho will, if Mb plnn works,
