George W. Smith was elected permanent
chairman by acclamation. In
taking his seat, Mr. Smith said:
"Gentlemen of the Committee.
Could I have had my own wish another
would not hold the honorable and responsible
position in which you hare
placed me. For it is a position of
great responsibility the work of which,
to be successful, will require the hearty
co-operation, not only of each member
of the Territorial Committee, but of
every member of the Republican party
in the territory
"We are now engaged in the important
work of organization, party organization
in this now territory, a new
thing for ub and a new thing for the
majority of those who, for the first
time as American citizens, will exercise
the right of franchise at the polls
in November next.
"To obtain a stroug organization, a
creditable organization, out in keeping
with the graud history of the Republican
party and oue that will be a
credit to the territory, requires singleness
of purpose, harmony, unity of
action; factional strife or prejudice.
'Torsouul inuerances must be subordinated,
factions must not exist and
will not bo recognized by your chairman.
"It becomes our duty to place before
the people the necessity of organization,
to prepare literature explaining
the aims and objects of the party, its
history and its policy.
It becomes our duty to outline apian
of action for the approaching election,
ensure registration of those entitled to
vote, to vm over those in doubt or
those indifferent to their civic duties.
"Finally, it will be our duty to order
the next primary elections and call the
next convention the duty of which will
be to nominate honorable, capable men
as candidates for Senators and Representatives
to the first Legislature of
the Territory of Hawaii.
"That all of this work, as outlined,
may be facilitated, Committees will be
appointed to whose hands will be entrusted
the work in detail.
"I ask your hearty support. Let us
iwoid selfishness, personalities, strife.
Let us cultivate harmony, unity,
"I thank you geutlemau for the honor
conferred and, to the best of my ability,
will cudeavor to acceptably" fill the
At the conclusion of Chairman
Smith's remarks, James H. Boyd nominated
E. It. Hendry for permanent
secretary of the committee, stating
that he believed an outsider should fill
the office, so that the records would be
kept entirely without prejudice or bias.
Mr. Hendry being the only nominee,
the secretary was ordered to cast a
unanimous ballot for him, under suspension
of the rules.
Mr. Iaukea moved that an executive
committee of five members be appointed.
Including the chairman.
H. P. Baldwin thought It would be
wise to have a member from each Island.
There was a feeling among the
people on the other Islands, which had
reached him even at th& Coast, that
Honolulu was trying to run everything.
He did not see any such spirit
manifested in the present meeting:
there was perfect harmony, and he believed
In carrying this harmony

fully approved the remarks of the
chairman and belie red there lAiuld b
harmony throughout the Islands. The
executive was tae most important committee,
and, if he lived in Honolulu,
he would favor giving the other Islands
representation on this committee. Mr.
Baldwin thought there should be at
least seven members, and the committee
should be a good working body. He
believed the chairman, should appoint
the committee, and concluded: "We
can all trust our chairman." (Applause.)
Mr. Boyd amended Mr, laukea's motion
that three members be appointed
frost each district.
Mr. Farrlngton offered as
that the committee be composed
of sevea members, with the chairman
H. P, Baldwin, upon the withdrawal
of the above motion and amendments,

tral Committee. The motion was car- I
ried by unanimous vote.
After considerable discussion and
several proposals on a motion by El
Towse, the chairman was authorized
to appoint a finance committer, consisting
of three members from each
election district of the Islands.
A. V. Gear nominated James H.
Boyd for treasurer, and the secretary
was ordered to cast the unanimous ballot
of the convention for that gentleman.
On motion of Ed Towse. the appoint-men
of the committees on literature
and organization was referred to the
Enoch Johnson moved to amend
Section 1 of Article 4 of the rules to
read as follows:
"Resolved, That Section 1, Article 4,
of the "Rules and Regulations of the
Republican Party In the Territory of
Hawaii" be and the same is hereby
amended to read as follows:
"Section 1. A Territorial central
committee, consisting of thirty delegates,
shall be elected by each Terri
torial convention in the method above
prescribed for the temporary Territorial
central committee, the permanent
chairman and secretary of the Terri
torial convention shall be
members of said committee, and such
committee shall hold office until their
successors are appointed and qualified.
"July 16, 19w."
H. P. Baldwin did not think there
was power to pass the resolution under
Article S, Section 1, as the proxies
held In the meeting were for a specific
purpose; he believed that notice should
be given and the matter voted on hereafter.
Chairman Smith concurred with the
resolution offered, but was obliged to
rule that there were not a sufficient
number of members present in person
to pass the resolution; notice must b
given by the secretary to members and
the vote would be taken at the next
meeting of the central committee. So
W. R. Farrington brought up the
matter of calling a ratification meeting
as soon as possible, and he moved
that such a meeting should be held at
the earliest possible moment, after the
arrival of the delegates, who were to
be suitably received at the steamer
with music and banners.
Chairman Smith appointed W. R.
Farrington, Enoch Johnson and J. H.
Boyd as a committee to arrange for
a ratification meeting.
The committee then went into executive
session for a short time, and finally
adjourned at 10 o'clock.
They Are Flocking to Ewa m
Droves The Cause.
There is much discontent on several
of the plantations on this Island. The
Japanese aro restless. They are flocking
to Ewa in droves and that planta
tion will have no difficulty in getting
all the meu it requires. Yesterday a
crowd of Japs was encountered near
Pearl City by a Republican reporter.
"Where lire you going?' was asked.
"Eva" answered a sturday looking
Jap. "Treat good at Eva, velly good;
no kick; no knock down; plenty lice;
pay good; Eva, velly good."

Ill TITTLE OPINION
BY JUDGE HUMPHREYS
The John Ii Estate.
Judd Case Finally
JUDGMENT FOR THE DEFENDANT
MEANING OF THE HAWAIIAN
"WORD PA TURNS THE
Learned Analysis of the "Word and
Its Relation to Contest
of the Ii
In the circuit court of the First Cir
cuit yesterday, Judge Humphreys filed
an important and far-reaching decision
in the case of the John Ii Estate, a corporation
against A. H.JB. Judd, a longstanding
land title case. The decision
is a lengthy and exhaustive one and
finds judgment for the defendant.
It appears that one John Ii died in
Honolulu in 1870. In his last will and
testament, duly admitted to probate,
said Ii devised to his daughter Irene,
"one Hiaina at Waikiki Kaneialaole
the source of water down to Pawaa,"
and to A. F. Judd "my land which I
bought, being the lot at Pawaa adjoining
Dr. Judd's land on the Waikiki
side of the road leading to Waikiki."
The daughter Irene intermarried with
one C. A. Brown and thereafter Mr.
and llrs. Brown conveyed all the land
situated, in the Hawaiian Islands belonging
to them to Henry Holmes, as
trustee; and thereafter said Holmes, as
trustee, conveyed the same to the
plaintiff in this case. After the institution
of this suit A. F. Judd died and
Agnes H. B. Judd, his sole devisee and
legatee and executrix, was substituted
The premises in dispute are a part of
Royal Patent No. 570 on Land Commissioner
Award No. 8241. The Court
takes judicial cognizance of the fact
that hand Commission Awards and
Royal Patents issued thereon were
granted without consideration to occupants
of the parcels of land covered by
said awards and patents. Therefore
the premises in controversy are not
"bought lands" within the common
acceptation of the term "bought," although
being acquired other than by
descent they would, testimically, fall
within the description of "bought
laud." "In the view which I take of
the case, however, the court continues,"
it is unnecessary to decide whether the
term "bought" was used in its common
or tecnmical sense. Tne premises
which it is conceded were devised to
A. F. Judd were acquired by Ii by virtue
of Royal Patent number 2616 for
the sum of $005, so that, both in the
technical and ordinary sense of the
term the land covered by said Patent
was 'bought land.' "
Here a full and careful description
of the laud in question is given by the
Court, showing, apparently, that it
conforms in boundaries with the text
of the will, adding: "It further appears
that the boundaries of the disputed
premises were not established
until the 16th day of July, 1874, and
that the same were then established
upon proceedings brought by A. F.
Judd, as guardian of testator's daugh
"The will of Ii is in the Hawaiian
language," continues the Court in its
decision, "and the devise to A. F. Judd
is as follows:
O kuu aina kuai oia ka Pa i Pawaa
e pill la ma ka Pa o Kauka ma ka aoae
ma Waikiki o ke alanui Aupuni e holo
la i Waikiki kai no A. F. Judd ia Pa,
oia konaaina an e hooilinei.'
Upon the definition to be given the
word pa' as used in this devise, the
title of the defendant must hinge. It
is contended by plaintiff that the word
pa simply means a lot or piece of
land; while the defendant contends
that it means an incloaed lot."
The Court discusses language and
the interpretation that may be placed
on certain words and forms of expression
in a learned and masterful way.
In interpreting a document, says the
Court, it must not be contemplated as
a series of worde, but as words combined
to convey what they could not
singly convey. It is not the letter, but
the spirit of the instrument that must
be sought. After discussing the use
aod meaning of the Hawaiian word
pV the Court says: I believe and
find that the word 'pa' rs used by the
testator in this instance meant the in
closed lot, and that the besign and intent
of ihe testator was that A. F. Jndd
should take as his devisee all of the
land within the substantial enclosure,
to wit, the stene wall: that barring the
word bought tee premises in dispute
folly answers the description of the
property devised to A. P. Judd."
The court then applies this finding
to the description of the lands involved
and finds again that "there ia a
perfect description of the premises
without the use of the word bought,'
"which word may, therefore, be
nated. "Reference is had to Judge
Judd's guardianship of Irene Ii and the
Court agrees with the deceased Judge
that it would not have been
proper for him (Jndd) to have litigated
for his right to this lot so long as Irene
was under his guardianship, the courts
holds that he lost none of his rights by
such a course. The fact that both ilr.
Judd and Mrs-Brown expressed doubts
as to the ownership of this lot does not,
in the judgment of the court amount
to anything; the court must and can
construe the instrument for itself.
The court bold farther! There ia
nothing; outside of the above devise in
the will devising the land in dispute to
Irene B, aod if I should hold that the
land ia question is not included in the
devise to A- F: Judd, then as to such
land John Ii died instate," there being
no ertdeoee that the land in question
wMtMtndMinUM dene to Irene C
uimmImIhh tk Ooort daeidw: -Jt ia
partiae intestacy; and particularly is
that true when the entire scheme of
the wUL as in this case, shows that he
testator intended to dispose of all his
property and not die
as to any part thereof. But
even if it had been proved
that the premises in dispute were included
in the description of the premises
devised to Irene, I should still
hold that A. F. Judd took all of the
premises within the stone wall, provided
there were other binds which
would partially meet the description
of the property devised to Irene. Judgment

on the Land Laws Pertinent
Features of Document.
At a meeting of the Governor's of
ficial family yesterday morning Attorney
General Dole submitted to the
Governor a lengthy opinion relative to
the effect upon the Land Act of 1895
of the Territorial Act and of the extension
of the Constitution and laws of
the United States to these Islands.
According to the opinion Section 90
of the Land Act, relating to the appointing
power in certain cases, is the
only section of the law expressly repealed
by the Territorial Act.
The provisions of the Land Act relative
to homestead leases and right of
purchase leases are repealed by implication,
being inconsistent with section
73 of the Territorial Act.
Lands may be acquired under the
Land Ac by cash freeholds.
The Territorial Act plainly restricts
acquisition of homesteads under the
system of cash freeholds, pursuant to
the Land Act of 1895, to citizens of the
United States and those who have
legally declared their intention to become

SET FORTH BY
Plenty of Reliable White Labor Can
be Secured How it Should
be Induced to Come
"I think the Japanese now in Hawaii
will shortly become an indolent
class," said L. G. Kellogg manager of
the Hawaiian Fruit and Plant Company,
yesterday to a Republican reporter.
"On several of the plantations
that I am acquainted with there are
many of them idle. They will work a
week and remain idle three. It is foolish
to 'agitate jailing them for vagrancy.
They have been brought to
these Islands, the most glittering inducements
having been held out to
them, and they have rights under the
American laws, and one of those
rights is their liberty.
"It is thoroughly impracticable to
bring negroes to the Territory. If they
come in any numbers a worse condition
will confront the planters than
the one they have to meet to-day. The
negro as a class is indolent. He is companionable
in his way and adverse to
isolation. He would be dissatisfiel
with the conditions existing on the
plantations, and not being nearly as
tractableas the Jap, would make serious
trouble. These Islands can ill-afford
an invasion of negroes.
"The Territorial Republican Convention
passed a resolution favoring statehood.
We will never have statehood if
we continue to import the riffraff of
the world to these shores to work on
"The only solution to the labor problem
that I see, and I have given it a
great deal of attention, is to divide the
plantations into forty-acre pieces and
lease them to white men. By doing
this the plantations will be relieved of
all worry concerning labor. Under this
system coolie labor will shortly be a
thing of the past, I would have these
forty-acre tracts cultivated on the
profit-sharing plan or else let the
lessees receive so much a ton for the
cane delivered at the mills. The plantations
would, of course, furnish the
land, steam plows, etc., and construct
railroads, making every forty acres
communicable with the mills. The
tracts could face the rail
roads on either side of the tracK, similar
to the way boom towns are laid
out in Southern California. This would
make every part of a plantation available
