IK" THE EAST,
Meeting Preceeded by a Monster
Street Parade Pitting Opening
of the Campaign
Honolulu showed its Republican enthusiasm
last night. The city had its
first taste of American political campaigning,
with a procession, red fire,
fireworks, transparencies, horns and
torchlights, and afterwards a rousing
mass meeting that would have done
credit to a large city of the mainland
Old kamaainas cannot recall a night
when the streets of Honolulu were
more crowded than they were last
night Every hack was busy and
every street car among Pain's sorry
aggregation was jammed with people
from 6 o'clock on. while hundreds
walked into the business streets to
watch the parade and follow it to the
drill shed, where was held the bigges.'
political meeting ever seen in the Islands.
Long before the parade arrived at
the drill shed all the seats in the
building were taken, and when those
who had stopped to see the parade
to arrive the hall was soon crowded
to the doors with people who could
not find seats. The parade, like most
parades, was late in starting, and the
early arrivals, at the drill shed had
quite a long wait At 10 minutes past
S loud cheers, music, and the beating
of drums outside announced the arrival
of the parade and its horde of
and speakers and vice-presidents
of the evening entered the .hall
amid loud cheers. In a few seconds
the big hall was jammed to the doors,
and there was still a large crowd outside.
There were more natives in the
meeting than have attended any previous
political gathering of the year in
Honolulu. Hundreds of them were in
the parade, and they were to be seen
all over the hall, and if their enthusiastic
applause of the points the
speakers made for Republican doctrines
is any indication of native sentiment,
the Republicans of Hawaii may
count upon a sad disappointment of th
Democratic expectations regarding the
Hawaiian vote. Honolulu has never
heard more enthusiastic cheers than
those which greeted the President and
of the evening, -when,
led by George "W. Smith, they passed
through the audience to take their
seats on the platform. Many of the audience
rose and yelled In true American
style.'and the meeting opened with
a demonstration well worthy of the
grand rally of the Republican parcy
of the Territory of Hawaii in Its fust
campaign under the American flag.
When the meeting was called to order
by George TV. Smith, chairman of
the Territorial Committee, the drill
shed was crowded from the stage to
the door.s. In the front row on the
left of the stage was a delegation of
Democrats who had eome to see what
would happen. Prince David, E. B.
McClanahan and W .H. Cornwell were
prominent among them, and the speakers
frequently alluded to the little
colony. The jokes of the late Democratic
meeting the "William Culhn

and each time the audience showed
Its appreciation by loud applause and
In calling the meeting to order Mr.
Smith stated that the gathering was
for the purpose of welcoming the delegates
who had represented the Republican
party at the national convention
in Philadelphia. He Introduced Samuel
Parker as the first speaker, and amid
tremendous applause "the most popular
Ha'rraiian" came iorward and made
an address that won deserved applause.
After a few compliments addressed tn
the loaelyDemocrats -who had taken
he front row, Mr. Parker spoke of the
experiences of himself and the other
delegates In the States, and of the
campaign now begun,
"Two months ago I left beautiful Hawaii
and crossed the Pacific to attend
the national Republican convention at
Philadelphia." said the speaker. "At
that convention we did our duty as Republicans,
