From the Sixth Representative District
(islands of Kauai and Niihau)
Entitled to 12 delegates; no official advices
of any being elected.
The independent spirit In the Sixth
district was emphasized by the fact
that no delegate had been elected from
there. 1 his spirit is wholly
the only care of the people on
Kauai being for local government
county organization, for which they
will send a solid delegation, it Is said,
to the legislature.
The chair announced that the nrat
business before the convention was tfec
election of permanent officers.
Mr. Achl said that he thought
could be done until rules were
adopted. Thought a committee on
rules should be appointed.
The chair said that If there were no
rules the convention must have some.
Mr. Loebensteln moved that a committee
on rules and permanent organization
be appointed, to consist of one
member from each district, which was
finally agreed to, and the following
committee was appolntetd.
First district William Horner.
Second district J. D. Paris.
Third district Gub Horner.
Fourth district George McLeod.
Fifth district Enoch Johnson.
On motion of Mr. Paris, W. G. Coelho

was resolved that a coaimittcc on platform,
to consist of two members from
each district, be appolntetd.

Judge Kauiukou expressly desired
not to be placed on the committee because
of his impaired eyesight.
The fight of the morning session
was precipitated on the question of a
recess to give the committee on rule
and permanent organization and that
on platform titno to formulate their
report. Mr. Hons wanted, an adjournment
until 2 o'clock, in whicn he &
backed by the delegations from the
other islands, while a strong portloa
of the Fifth district delegation contended
for an adjournment until T
Contest Over Adjournment.
J. W. Jones led the movement for adjournment
to 7:30 o'clock. Ho thought
the committee should be given ample
time to do its work and though'. 7
o'clock was none too early to meet.
Mr. Hons said the outside delegates
were anxious to get through, as tney
all, or nearly all, would hava to le-turn
home on the morrow, and yet
wanted to have a voice in all the proceedings.
George R. Carter opposed the motloa
to adjourn until 7:30 o'clock. 'The
matter of platform has been well
thought over and the commutes
to be able to report in half an hour,
Mr. Jones then withdrew hi motioa
and Mr. Carter amended Mr. Honi
motion to take a recess until 1 o'clock.
A. G. M. Robertson further amended
to take a recess until T:30 o'clock. Hs
made a plea for the committee, urging
that the work was an important one
and should be done with care aad deliberation.
It will be a declaration of
,be 'pounced upoa aud'yicked to ptat
by the opposition, for which rxjcn it
ihould be thoroughly considered and
Kr. Carter Intimated that the committee
wag not all of it; that the convention
would perhaps not accept the
dictum of the committee; that it was
the province of the convention to
the platform when It was imported
and its privilege and rigV to a
cept or reject the whole r any part
of it, to add or subtract, as the delegates
might see fit and proper. M
Carter's Ideas seemed to meet with the
approval of the majority of the con
vention, but Mr. Carter's motion for a
recee to 1 d"clock wras not pressed and
by an overwhelming vote a recess was
taken until 2 o'clock.
tflAT WAS DONE DURIN6
On reassembling at 2 o'clock in the
afternoon, A. G. Gear called iht convention
to order at the request :

that the committee on piattorm itad
Just completed its work and it would

The committee on rules an-1 permanent

handed in the report.
On motion of Mr. Carter the report
was adopted as a whole.
Pending the report of the committee
on platfurm, Mr. Carter move! that

Mr. Kauiukou did not think the motion
In order, as the leport of tn0
was not yet before the convention.
Mr. Carter's motion not having been
ocondttd, it was agreed to go into an
election for permanent onicers and the
convention was permanently organized
Chairman H. P. Baldwin.
Vice Chairman Judge Kauiukou.
Secretary E. R. Hendry.
Assistant Secretary J. D. Avery.
R. F. Daly.
Wanted an Executive Session.
On motion of A. O. M. Robertson It
was resolved that the convention go
Into executive session. This unusual
move was fully discussed during an informal
recess and its unwise course
forced upon the members of the convention.
Upon reassembling, the resolution
to go into secret caucus was rescinded.
The report of the committee on platform
was then read.
Judge Kauiukou said he was In favor
of every plank read, but thought something
should be said about the territorial
school system and the nuu of
To meet all contingencies, J. II. Boyd
moved that the sections of the platfnim
e read and acted upon serlatum and
It was so ordered.
As the platform was real many new
suggestions cropped up, among them
a Nicaraguan canal plank, a scnool
plank and others. George P.
desired instruction to the delegate
to congress to work for an amendment
to the organic act permitting the use
of the Hawaiian language in the legislature
as well as the English.
There was manifested a disoojiticn
to make light of the suggestion, but
Mr. Dickey made an earnest speech in
support of the motion, declaring it to
be Important, of the highest importance,
J. H. Boyd made a passionate pica
for the Hawaiian people an J their language.
He said they oug'jt to be allowed
to use their mother tongue; that
It was their legislature the Hawaiian
Kills Opposed it. p
Harry T. Mills said he thought such
a plank was a mistake; that this was
one people; that t'.e aim of ill legislation
had been to harmonize and assimilate
all classes. The purpose was to
make one people, uot two. Two
tongues meant two peoples.
After three or four propositions had
been presented, Mr. Robertson offerei
an amendment by adding to the existing
resolution the words "use of the
Hawaiian language," which was agreed
to after a speech strongly commendatory
of the amendment by Mr. Paris.
The plank offered by Mr. Dickey relative
to the lepers was promptly adopted
A plank offered by Mr. Hookano calling
for the abolition of the poll tax
and road tax was voted down. Judge
Hookano said only about 5,400 out of
S.000 paid these taxes and now that
there was no longer anf contract labor
he predicted the colllectlons would be
much smaller stilL
L. L. McCandless offered the following
plank: "We demand the acquirement
by the territory of all harbor
front property throughout thsja Islands
and that such property be at all
times free of access to the public."
After considerable discussion it was
decided that such a plank mfcht infringe
on federal rights and it was
voted down. .
The plask in favor of an appropriation
for Lilittokalanl. that in favor of
paying the losses by the Chinese fire,
by asking: congress to set aside customs
revenue for that purpose, were
all heartily applauded, as were the
to McKlaley and Roosevelt.

The convention then, at 4:30 o'clock,
took a recess until 7:30, though the
chair had already Invited nominations
for a delegate to congress.
AT THE Hlfi
It was 7:JU bejore Chairman Baldwin
called the convention to oruer at the
evening session, announcing that the
nrsi thing in order would be the nomination
ut a delegate to congress to
serve out the unexpired term of the
congress and tor the full
term of the Fifty-seventh congress. A.
B. Loebenstein of the First district was
immediately recognized, who, in nominating
Samuel Parker, said in substance:
'On the 14 th of June occurred a revolution
unparalleled in the annals of
hiotory. On that day disappeared the
Hawaii of old. There appeared a new
Hawaii, sung about of old when all
should be equal. On this evening we
are gathered under the stars and
stripes. And on this evening "are w&
gathered Hawaiians and haole,
and kamaaina, and obliterated are
all recollections of strife and by-gone
days. Mindful only that we are
here together from Kauai to
southernmost Hawaii under that llag
which signifies to us that a
of the people, for the people and
by the people shall not perish from
the earth. What does this not signify
to us? Born amid the smoke of battle,
spoken by a president, a republican
president, in the midst of strife. Such
and only sucn are the imperishable
guide words of the republican party
a party that stands for all that is best
for Hawaii nei; a party that speaks for
equal rights; that knows no distinction
of race or creed or color; that is the
party that speaks to you tonight. It
is the party that believes in honest
compensation for honest toil; it Is the
party that believes in an honest dollar;
it is the party that has enabled
our nation to take a front rank among
the nations of the world.
Equal Rights for All.
"And so It has come to us that the
party has taken In Hawaii and its work
for the regeneration of the people and
given us an organic act under which
the poorest has equal rights with tbe
greatest. And now it devolves on you
to choose some one who will bring Hawaii
into still closer touch with American
citizenship and American affaire.
A man whose name shall be without
blemish and without stain; a man
whose attainments and whose qualifications
will command the respect of
the legislators of the United States of
America; a man who will more strongly
connect the bond of union between
the American union and Its baby territory.
Have we such a man? Who is
the man? (Cries of 'Samuel Parker.')
From the garden Island of Kauai, over
the green fields of Oahu, over fertile
Maui and the southernmost points of
Hawaii, the one man named Is Samuel
Parker, and so I nominate Samuel
Parker Samuel Parker, the cowboy,
who is soon to be elected to an office
but one remove from the highest In
the land, is equally at home in camp
or cabin or legislative hall.
"And so, ,Mr. Chairman and gentlemen
of the convention, in the name
of Hawaii, in the name of every one,
In the name of the republican party, I
nominate Mr. Samuel Parker for delegate

Every District Seco; led Parker.
H. L. Holstein of the Second district
seconded the nomination and hoped
the result would be that the secretary
would be instructed to cast the ballot
for Samuel Parker.
Judge A. M. Kepolkal seconded tne
nomination on behalf of the Third district.
He told of the trip to Philadelphia
and how Parker got the name of
the "Cowboy of Hawaii" at that convention.
He closed by saying that he
would go home and work faithfully
every day from now until election day
for the triumph of Samuel Parker.
A. G. M. Robertson, on behalf of
the Fourth district, seconded the nomination.
Mr. Parker, said he, is a man
of the people. He combines the confidence
of people with the confidence of

The idea that there are no democrats
in the island of Oahu was dissipated
last evening when more than 500
crowded the Orpheum theater to its
fullest capacity. It was not only a
.arge, but a representative gathering
and disposed of its business in an expeditious
manner. The stage had been
neatly decorated. There was the banner
which the Hawaiian delegation
carried to Kansas City and entwined
over It were Old Glory and the Hawaiian
flag. The rear of the stage wa3
also decorated with those two flags and
the whole formed a very pretty picture.
Every provision had been made for the
press, the secretaries and the chairman.
Promptly on time Colonel Chas. J.
McCarthy, chairman of the territorial
committee, called the meeting to order,
explaining that it was a mass meeting,
called so that the democratis nilglit
freely express their opinion and nominate
their local tickets In an open and
Edmund H. Hart was chosen secretary.
On motion of Mr. Colburn, Col. McCarthy
was elected permanent chairman.
The colonel returned his thanks
for the honor conferred on him. He
said it would be his endeavor to rule
justly and to conduct the business of
the mass meeting to the best of his
John H. Wise was then asked to act
as interpreter, which he did.
Chairman McCarthy explained that
the meeting had been called to nominate
candidates for the senate, for the
house of representatives and to elect
delegates to the territorial convention
from the island of Oahu.
Prince David's Letter.
Before proceeding to the regular
business on hand the chairman said
that for some time past members of
the territorial committee and other
leading members of the party had been
making every honorable effort to Induce
David Kawananakoa, popularly
known as Prince David, to accept the
nomination for delegate to congress.
He would now read a letter which he
had received from that gentleman on
Saturday, which explained Itself:
Honolulu, September 21, 1900.
Col. C. J. McCarthy, Chairman of the
Territorial Central Committee ol
the Democratic Party of Hawaii
Sir: I desire to inform you that nt
the request of the representatives of
the business and financial interests of
our country, and conceiving the danger
attending the non-action on my pirt
in reference to the election of a delegate
to congress to represent our large
and varied Interests, I have consented
and do hereby declare myself a candidate
for delegate for the territory of
Hawaii to the congress of the United
States of America. Sincerely yours,
At the conclusion of the reading of
Prince David's letter the audlenre
arose en masse and cheered again and
again, demonstrating the popularity of
their standard bearer.
