T1TE STRAW VOTE.
Tho Advertiser presents In this issuo tho result of tlio first straw vote
taken In tlio city during the present campaign. Tlio result indicates, wo
believe, very closely how the regular voto will go nmong the business men.
Tho tost was made an fairly nn possible. Following this vote, wo propose to
take polls of other sections of tho city, cocring the fifth no well as tho fourth
Ono thing tho ballots, marked yesterday Indicate nnd that is tho death
of tho straight ticket doctrino in Honolulu. Tho voters arc now awakened
to the folly of "yellow dog" voting and will do it no more.
Tho largo voto polled for Kuhlo over McCnudlcss is surprising. We had
apposed that tho businessmen of tho city were more inclined to back the
Democratic nominee this election, not because of Ills politics but as a deserved
xebuko to the Delegate for bis unwarranted attacks upon" the business clement
and upon tho Governor.
That .Tnrrctt should bo favored thrco to one over Parker was to linvo been
expected, as vwas Fern's majority over Colonel Pnrkcr. Tho .straw voto Indicates
thai any ono good cnndldnto could defeat tho Mayor, but that with
two in tho field tho chances of tho present Incompetent holding his sent, ore
very good. This should he a hint for those who want a bottcrment to solidly
place their support behind tbo stronger of Fern's two opponents nnd by doing so
Another important point is brought out in the study of tho strnw vote
and thnt is that no color lino is being drawn by tho white voters ns represented
by tho two hundred nnd odd canvnsscd yesterday. Tlio voto recorded was for
what tho voters believe tho best tncn. The five highest nmong tho senntors
lappcn to bo all white candidates, but between a Hnwniinn and n white mnn
for tho dologateship, tho majority preferred the Hawaiian. In tho mayoralty
vote tbo ono whito candidate is third. An absolute disregard for color nppenrs
to have been tho rule, otherwiso Hustacc nnd McCnndless would bavo had the
bulk of tho votes.
OITT EOADS AND PUBLIO HEALTH.
A meeting which should nttrnct tho attendance of a largo number of the
business men of Honolulu is that announced for todny in the rooms of the
public service association, being hold by the civic federntion, nt which "Senator
A. F. .Tudd will present an argument for "hnnitntion roads." Senator Judd
lias been a student of conditions in tho agricultural sections Included within
tho city limits and, actually, within tho very center of the city. Ho bns also
bad occasion to imestigato the health conditions of tho tenement districts
and tho slums and he has traced tho connncctlon between poor roads and no
roads and tho high death rates in tho districts investigated. Air. Judd believes
that there is n direct relationship between tho dirt roads and the wooden side--walks
of Palamn nnd tho awful prevalence of tuberculosis there; ho beliovcs
that, tho port of Honolulu can never ba declared plague-proof or cholera-proof
ontif all the "back blocks" havo roads, tho building of which will include the
laying of sower and water pipes nnd storm drains.
, Tho problem which Mr. .Tudd has sot out to solc is n pnrt of tho genernl
road problem of the city. hnsi come when Honolulnns must fnco
tho fact thnt the present system of building nud keeping up the roads of this
city can not coutinuc. As matters stand now it takes every cent tho rond
department can secure to keep oven with its patching nnd there never will
bo a satisfactory system of roads until there be a bond issuo sufficient to put
tho main thoroughfares in some permanent shape, leaving tho regular rond
appropriation for tho rebuilding and upkeep of the side streets, or until tbo
city has a workable law. In addition, thero must bo funds provided
from somowhero fmvtho building of the sanitation ronds advocated by
Senator Judd, these being tlio new roads to nut through tbo largo blocks now
'devoted to tnro and rice cultivation.
It is too much to expect that any of tho candidates for ofllco will bother
about nttendiug this afternoon's meeting and expressing any definite opinions
about tho road problems, but n good ninny of tho other citizens who have only
tho general good of the city at heart should mnko it a point to bo on hand.
Tho inntter is certain to como beforo the next legislature and tho sooner tbo
averago citizen is familiar with tho plans to bo advocated tho better will be
the chance of having something done. .
, . NOW, GET TO WORK
ic Law nnd commonsenso go hand in band in tho supremo court decision
yesterday, upholding the territorial "reclamation act," undor which' it
is proposed to climinato tho swamp lands within tho eity limits and for tho

It is most gratifying to learn that no technicalities regarding "tho invasion
of private rights" aro to bo allowed to stand in tho w'n'y of ridding tho city
of tho health-menacing promises such as nro afforded in Kewnlo, Wuikiki,
nnd other section and thnt tlio matter of having these lowlying hinds

THE WOODEN TENT PEG7
If there is one thLng more than another thnt the enlisted men of tho
Island regulnrs hope for, in regard to the coming maneuvers, it is that tho
umpires and observers will recommend the abolition of tho wooden tent peg
for "pup'J tent purposes. Made as they aro now, and of wood, their sphoro
of ucfulness is very limited, especially In a rocky country where largo flat
places are not usually nvnllablo for tbo pitching of tents in regutnr unit lines.
It was long ngo proved that tho peg wns useless in sandy soil, thnt kind
of ground furnishing no hold at all, and in somo camping places, where much
rock formation wns encountered, tho pegs hnvcf been blunted and split by
driving, thus forcing tho soldiers to use makeshift pegs.
The peg mot likely to suit under nil circumstances would bo one of metal,
somewhat longer than tho present peg and with a strong notch at tbo upper
end. Then tho difficulties of variable terrain would bo partly dono away with,
and the soldier could return to bis post with a full set of pegs, instead of
returning with somo and finding tho rest of them on tho payrdll, as is nowl
the ense, Uncle Sam causing lost ones to bo doductcd from tbo pay if loss
"from fair wear and tear" can not bo proved and that is often impossible.
So strong hopes nro now being, oxprcsscd in barracks that tho observers
will obcnc nnd the umpires act accordingly, to rid tho service of nn often
useless article and substitute ono of use anywhere.

THE PASSING HOUR.
Why doesn't Charley Huittacc get someono to take a shot at him? That
appears to be up-to dnto campaigning.
Colonel Parker has told us in two languages that he wnnts to be mayor
and thnt Fern has served long enough. Now, let him tell us what ho proposes
to do if elected, in order to be a real mayor and not a figurehead. Even nndcr
tho monstrosity wo have for a city chnrter there is plenty of room for tho
official head of tho city to demonstrate some worth.

voters In refusing to be stampeded into swallowing everything served up to
them a la convention.
Tho first straw vote on tho question of the trensurcrship of Honolulu, takon
yesterday by The Advertiser in tho four leading elubs of tbo city, shows how
strongly George Smithies stands in tbo opinion of tho thinking men of tbo
city as represented by theso representative) club members. Thero is hardly any
question about the election of Mr.- Smithies. 'Ho is recognised ns capable and
honest, whllo bo is nlso well known among both fourth and fifth district voters.
Ho is the style of candidate Tho Advertiser has not tho slightest hesitation in
The grntifying report of tho territorial veterinarian that bovino tuberculosis
has practically been wiped -out on this island demonstrates what cau
bo dono ia tfi'o way of eradication of'discaso if tho authorities act fearlessly.
Fortunately tho veterinarian had to deal for. the most part with cattlo owners
of sufficient senso to work with him ''and riot against him, appreciating the
fact that if the diseaso could bocliminatcd through tho sacrifico of n part of
tho herds tho sacrifice would bo worth while. If bovine tuberculosis can bo
wiped out within a fow months, human-tuberculosis can also be very materially
roduccd, if tho same intelligence is shown in' guarding human health as tho
health of cattle. In this case, that of humans, tbo intelligence must como from
those afflicted and from their friends. 'Thoy can not bo trca'ted as cattlo, the
less afflicted being treated, tho worst afflicted being slaughtered, Recent
statistics of tho Lcnhi Homo, however, show that a very largo proportion of
tubercular sick can bo cured if thoy will only accept treatment.
It must bo rather sickening for the' business men of Honolulu, or thoso
of tho business men who attended tho mooting In Republican headquarters
yesterday, to- bo told by John AViso that tbo "weak men" on tbo Republican
ticftct nro K. H. Paris nnd C. N. Arnold. Mr. Paris is ono of the representative
hiiines men of tho city, connected with ono of tho oldest nnd best-known
firms in Ilnwnii. Ho has risen to a high placo in that firm. Ho is ono of tho
strong men of tho merchants' association, and yet, yo gods, ho is one of tho
"weak men" on a ticket thnt boasts such a worthy as David Notloy, who
hns only recently commenced wearing clothes. Mr. Arnold is ono who bns
sened well during tho past two years as a supervisor, to which ofllco 'ho aspires
for reelection. Ho is tho ono Republican supervisor who comes out of the
ordcnl of tho past two years with nny degree of credit, and yot, says John
Wiso, ho is anodior of thoi "weak ones.' If tbo average business man of
this city can sit still nnd bear such remarks as this without challenging tho
accuracy of the statement, ho has a mighty poor opinion of tho averago voter
of this city. Wo believe that Paris
