A Few Remarks on tne
IS PROMISING IMPOSSIBLE THINGS
OJTE OF BOB WXLCOXTS STOBXES
BUDELV EXPOSED AS PTJRE
Grand Given George
by His Friends Live
Hllo Notes and Personals.
The Hilo Herald says:
The theory that a white man cannot
be elected to the lower house had bet
ter be thrown to one siae, and if tho
republican roters are going to the polls
with that idea in view they are going
with the battle lost before it is fought.
"there are surely enough iiawaiian
citizens who wi.l x Jtf ior the best man
regardless of color With the cumulative
voting system for
the Hawaitans cannot prevent the election
of at least one haole. The Herald
considers the Kawalians too sensible
to vote against their own interests at
this time. They have not forgotten
the time when Hilo was represented in
the legislature by residents of the other
islands mainly because of the fact
that a white man had no show
at the polls against a Hawaiian.
' " Do ttxe Hawaiians believe that
they can set up a monarchy or restore
Liliuokalani to the throne once they
have been elected to the legislature"
'jg they believe they could accomplish
more alone than with the assistance of
haoles of judgment and experience?
If they do, then the Herald believes
they are wrong. It is said that a' Hawaiian
in North Hilo who seeks the
nomination on the independent ticket
has given out to his friends the statement
that when he goes to the legislature
he will have passed a bill providing
taxation for the whites and freedom
from taxation for the Hawaiians. And
there are some misguided fools who believe
he will accomplish it. Conditions
in the legislature two years
hence will bo widely different from
those which confront the legislator of
today. Now is the time when conservative,
brainy men are needed to
meet and grasp the issues, and Hawaiians
will best serve themselves by
throwing off the yoke of the independent
party and taking a bold stand
on the side of republicanism."
m OF WILCOX'S STOBIES
HAiiiD AS UNTRUTH
This is an opinion by the Hilo Herald:
"One of the arguments used by Bob
Wik-ox iu favor of his election, and
used by him during his recent campaign
tour, was that through his efforts the
statute providing for imprisonment for
non-payment or taxes nad oeen repealed.
Hawaiians who believe such
balderdash are weak or as bad aa tho
man who makes the statement. Boh
Wilcox went to "Washington in the interest
of himself and wife, and with
the expectation of getting some kind
of a settlement of the crown land
question, in which he says his wife has
a claim. His advice was not sought by
representatives "nor senators in framing
the Organic Act, nor would it be on
any measure; provided the Hawaiians
are foolish enough to send him to congress.
If Mr. Wilcox desires to be in
politics his proper place, as the Independent
truthfully remarks, is in tho
local legislature, where he could fume
as much as he pleased without doing
any particular damage. Up to date the
condition of the Hawaiian has not been
perceptibly bettered through his efforts."
MR. 6E0R6E RODIEK'S
SEND-OFF AT BILO
From the Hllo Herald: "When Geo.
liodiek" entertained his Masonic brethren
at dinner a few weeks ago the
guests decided that on the day of ihs
departure of their host they would taka
him in charge. Without Mr. Rodiek's
knowledge a committee was appointed
and arrangements were made to send
him away in a style decidedly novel to
Hilo, and in a manner which would
long be remembered by him.
"Accordingly, when the carriage in
which Mr. Rodeik was riding to the
wharf last Friday, reached Waiakea
bridge he was met by his brother Masons
and requested to get out and walk.
He demurred, but his demurrer was
overruled. On reaching Bob Andrews'
place he saw a, platform and chair,
beautifully decorated with flags and
flowers, and six stalwart Hawaiians
ready to act as bearers. Mr. Rodiek at
first declined an invitation to take a
ride that way, but afterwards yielded;
and directly he was seated the natitel
raised the platform to their shoulders
and In that way he was escorted io the
Kinau by about fifty of his friends. On
reaching the cabin Mr. Rodlek issued
orders to the steward, which were
