United States : Officials' Believe

Politician suddenly awakened to the
fact yesterday that hundreds and pos
sibly thousands of voter of the Ter
ritory will r carrying' a ring and wear
ing khaki this fall when the general
election1 take place, and vago rumor
spread through both : the Tltepublieaa
and Democratic rank that the statu
of candidates for office Might bfi shak.
en, but the consensu of off-hand opin
iona among federal officials 1 that,
the- men will be permitted to vote ax
the question did not arise until fhe
First Hawaiian Regiment waa actually
in an army rmp, its personnel of both
eommicaloned. and enlisted men to Te
rn in mobilised until the- end of the
war. With precinct meetings of the
Republican party being held last night
10 Bt-icei obbo iuar.es ror election to the
convention on July 22, the statu of the
former national guardsmen who. are
eit liens, and the prospective soldiers
acquired through the draft became the
question oi tne hour.
United Htate District Attorney 8. C,
Huber, Jity Attorney A. M. Brown,
and a few army officers expressed them
selves as inclined t the belief that
i wen noi lose xjwit .rights as
citizen while under arms as long as
they remained at theii ".home sta
tions", and "home stations" in this
instance ; is interpreted to mean their
residence within the Territory.
' Th matter has already been the sub
ject of eonsiderable discussion among
the voters at the army camp at Fort
Armstrong, and some of the tents have
resounded with "Boap-boi" Oratory,
but practically all speakers expressed
the belief that the ballot waa theirs
exactly aa it waa while they were mem
bers of the national guard and engaged
in civilian occupations.
What Law Bays
the Organic Act which congress pass
ed to provide a government for Hawaii
following the annexation of the Is
lands by. the I'aited States, contains a
speeUie clause with reference- to the
rights of eifjaens even though they be
come . soldiers, .section .58 ..reading as

as ,xo prevent m voting,. e
eept in time of war or public danger,
or in eaae of absence from this place
of residence in actual military service,
in which case provision may be made
by law. for taking his vote."
Section 6.1 read ns follows: "That
no tn,on shall be alLpwed to vote who
is iu the Territory by reason of being
In the army or navy or bv reason of ha.
Ing attached to troops in the service
ei im united Ntutes. "
This refers to enlisted men in the
regular army who are sent here from
Other states for service, and who would
nut acquire th legal residence necexnary
Movements of Troops
A company of the First Hawaiian
KeginieBt may move out of the army
eauip at Fort Armstrong this after
noon ami eutrain for Sehotleld Bar
racks for station, probably at one of
the Caatner cantonments. The first
fompauy, however, will. certainly move
out by tomorrow morning, which will
lee ye u vacancy for another company.
The arniy authorities are now ar
ranging to have companies of the Sec
ond .Hawaiian Koginient come into Ho
nolulu immediately, and one of tlie
island of Hawaii companies may arrive
tomorrow morning, if the First Regi
ment has not transported a company
to Hi-lion eld Barrack by that time,
provision is already made to encamp
the men at Camp McCarthy in the
Capitol grounds. Inasmuch 'as there
may be a number of ooaipaniu arriv
ing from other inlands about the same
time and insufficient vacancies avail
able or them, they will go to Camp
McCarthy, thus giving the Capitol
grounds Another warlike appearance.
The medical staff of the camp yes
terday examined the men of Company
11, second battalion, composed of Fili
pinos from the Oahu plantation district
of VWaipaku. The company was all puss
ed through, by half past two in the
afternoon, and then, came th task for
CupUin-Mward .VVtsell, U. 8. A,, mus
Uriug officer, and assistants, for it de
volved upou these ofiLeers to Jiaisb up
the "paper work' for the company,
tack man. is to receive about Ave
aoparate gets of papers.
Estimates for Draft
Upon tho reaulU of the physical ex
aminations of theae Filipinps the army
oflicers may be able to form an idea of
the possible number of rejections in
the entire .regiment. The number was
not known yesterday. Previously It
was expected that the' total' of reiee- I
tiuus wjoald ltd about OTteen percent
for the' entire command! This would
take out tibout 200 meu as a maximum
figure, leaving the regiment with about
twelve hundred. Providing the Second
Regiment's " rejects" are about the
same number, the registrants for the
druft will be called upon to provide
about eight hundred men for each rt'iri
ineiit, or 1000 in all.
The regimental war strength in
Onliu's army post has been from 1S00
to 2000, with iho Zbtb lufajitry (color
ed) having nearly 2400.
It im estimated that al oflicers of the
FfTut Regiment, who were physically
examined Wednesday are certain to
piss and be mustered in. Following
their arm "shots" on Wednesday se,
eral were not quite to fighting condition
yesterduy and nursed tender bleep.

Governor - Designate McCarthy is
finding that some little difficulty at
tends cnrrylnj. out w),0t probably will
be his final official action as treasurer
of the Territory--disposing of , the
2THI,0h1 worth of bonds to provide
money with which Hawaii can. repair
torm damage, aj, provided for at the
special session of the legi luture. The
bonus Have to. I.e s.dd by July 1 and
the present .l;.n is t apportion them
among tne plantations of Hawaii.
Tnder tie terms of what is called
the Enabling Act. which was passed at
the special session, tlip treasurer is
anthorized to sell territorial bonds In
the sum of omi.noti to get the money
to do the repair work on Hawaii. Th
special session primarily was culled or
this purpose. The provides fur
ther, however, ilmt If the treasurer is
unable to dihpose of the bonds by July
1, then !00MM of the money needed is
to be raised in I hi: current year by
Present effurts nrt- Ixing directed to
ward dispo-iiM. of tl,,. whole n mount
of bonds, ho timt it will not be neces
sary to riMoit to tiixution. Oriuinallw
t was intended to place the ,i bonds
with the phu.tniHoiM of the Kohala dis
trict,' the distiiit rrh was swept by
the storm an I in which the money will
be expended. There are only five plan
tations in this ili.M i ir t.
When this propositi wus advanced (o
the five Kohnln plantntinns, however,
they objected, contcmling thnt Ihe
bonds should l e apportioned among all
th twenty-four plantations of the Is
land! It. was uryetl that if the Terri
tory had to resort to taxation to raise
the money the tax would hit all of
th plantations on the Islands and It
was hold that nil should come forward!
to take up the lion. I issue.
' In working out how much of the
200,000 ifsue each of the p'nntatioss
le to take, the estim.ite is beinji made
on the basis of the sn;;nr output Of the
various companies ii. I(tl7.
It is understood that interests on
Hawaii are agreed that the whole is
sue of gL'00,000 shall l.e taken Up so
that no tax will lie necessary as Jt" Is
realized that the pun h;ise of the bonds
amounts after all only to an invest
ment in the credit of the Territory!

some manner. But the publicity pro
eared by the territorial central com
asittee was so meager that la Moil f

last night that preolnct nominating

Interest for the electorate that they
did In the "itood old davs."
In all the districts, both In eifcy and
ruuutry, me voters were supposed to
