, Promptly dn time Chairman McCarthy
called the laeeUng to order after
mg quite an ovation, which he pleasantly
acknowledged and said that, as many
sintvlius were on tlie program, he would
simply say that the object of the meet-was
to ratify the democratic nominations.
He then introduced Mr. Kaloa, one of
the candidate for representative.
Mr. Kaloa spoke in the Hawaiian language
and at some length, being frequently
applauded, on several occasions
Abraham Fornandez " was the next
speaker. He, too, is a democratic nom-
inc for representative and also spoka
in the vernacular. He had the audience
with him from the outset. He was
interrupted by the applause of
J. O. Cnrtor on Issues.
O. Carter was then introduce 1.

It wa a magnificent reception
and it visibly affected Mr. Carter. When

He discnsed the platform of the democratic
party and defended it. He called
the attention of the natives to the fact
that an. effort had been made to put
uriaz to t&eTr franchise. One of thes.
be raid, was the property qualification.
He opposed tt increase of territorial
tax. He !aid it had been stated that
if he would be the representative
of th Portuguese colony. He
.tatuird th'H i an untruth and said that
if elected he vould be the representative
of the whole Fourth district. He dwelt

E. C. Mcfarlane, another nominee for
tepresentative. was then introduced and
made a most interesting talk. He ignored
national issufj because there are questions
here to be disposed of that would
require the highest ability, devotion and
patience, so that the future course of the
Territory of Hawaii may be properly
shaped, ne thought it was not that
Hawaiians mit sooner or later becomo
nn important fnctor in our politics. He
taid it required no prophetic foresight
to ee them ranged in the ranks of th
democratic iwrty, for, in the light of the
past they could scarcely be anywherx:
else the would surely not stand with
those who had robbed them of their independence
and stamped their nation out
of existence. He did not wish to reopen
the old wounds ndr to revive the memory
of those days. The things that have
passed can never again be restored.
That government is gone forever.
Make up your nrinds to that.: the sooner
this is recognized the better. With the
privileges granted them under the Organic
Act the Hawaiians will have to be
reckoned with politically.
He pointed out that they had been
robbed of their country, their birthright,
their flag, by the men now dominating
the republican party. He said he felt
confident they would never ally them
selves with their natural enemy, the republican
37r. Macfarlane said he had been
amongst the first to protest to the United
States against the annexation of Hawaii,
believing that the absorption of the country
by the great republic would prove
detrimental to the native people. "AnJ
at that time I believed it would be detrimental
to the commercial Interests of this
untrj " he added.
Tin thought that as annexation
was crjsUillizing it proved to have
Iteen. pcrhnps, the that
could jttssibly have befallen the
!eope. He said that the present imperial
policy threatened disaster to these
islands. If carried to its ultimate conclusion
it means the annexation of Cuba
and the Philippines and that would ruin
sugar and other of the islands staples.
He said that the democratic party was
unalterably opposed to the extension ol
the empire. He spoke most admiringly
of the democratic platform being straight
forward and unequivocal in expression
aud will be so considered by a majority
of the voters. He spoke of the repu
platform us clumsy and false in
its specious pleadings.
Take the plank with reference to the
plague tires. It declares for the paying
of the losses, but cunningly provided
that the losses should be paid from the
customs receipt, when the framers of
the platform knew that those moneys
must In? conveyed into the national
and cannot 1k touched. "It is a
deliberate and cold-blooded statement
made with a view to deceive. False in
one thing, false in all," he said.
The speaker adverted to the fact that
while annexation was pending a committee
of gentlemen were sent from here
to Washington. Their sole mission was
to secure a limitation to the franchise
and they labored night and day to
the incotue and property
clauses. "Had they been successful,"
said Mr. Macfarlane, "you would again
have been deprived of your votes in
your own country.
"Bear In mind that these were agents
of the republican party, who said the
Hawaiians were incapable of self-government
and wholly indifferent to poli
tics." He asked that this insult be
and resented, being an imputation
of dishonesty, incapacity and corruption
in their political methods.
Mr. Macfarlane said there would hi
many natives in the legislature and that
the democratic party stood sponsors to
the American people that honest, clean
and wise legislation would enu.
"Wheneve and wherever your rights ?re
menaced," concluded the speaker, "we to

and later they stood shoulder to shoulder
with the American troops. Like the
Cubans they were fighting for liberty.

Sir. McClanahan spoke at considerable
length, drawins a pathetic and effective
picture- He said it was not true that
it was "loo lateT to inaagurate a new
policy, as the republicans claimed. But
the democrats say it b not too late.
They would top the fightin? and tell the
world to keep hands off until the Philippine
people had organized a government
satisfactory to themselves.
He said it would be a mistake to elect
Parker. He may have friend in
but should heo to Washingtot

They will be retired by democrats. He
eulogized Prince David, whose name invariably
produced great cheers.
Mr. McClanahan made a brilliant
speech, which neither time nor space will
permit to publish, but it held the large
audience very closely and was a fitting
close to a burcctsful meeting.
The break in the independents ranks
is steadily growing and the defection is
now said to be very serious.
J. A Kennedy, chairman of the republican
territorial committee, 's devoting
himself almost exclusively to the
work of the campaign.
E. B. McClanahan is the chairman of
the democratic campaign committee and
is proving himself a hard worker. Uj
is spending much time about headquarters.
A beautiful banner flaming with a
bonier of electric bulbs spans Hotel
street at republican headquarters. It
bears a splendid likeness of Sam Parker,
the next delegate to congress, and is i
credit to tlie designer.
The Young Men's Republican club will
have charge of the big mass meeting
advertised at the Orpheum Thursday
night. The boys have been doing good
work at their headquarters and the meeting
under their auspices Thursday night
will be a hummer.

to have him wijh him. Opinions are
about evenly divided among the other
yachtsmen. Some think that as Hobron
has beaten Macfarlane two times already
the owner of the Paloma should wait
until the captain of the Dewey gets ready
to rave. Others think that the rnev
should take place as soon as possible so
that the Palomn will have a chance to
make the round trip to Lahainn and
back this year.
Mr. Hobron says that he has been
asked by Mr. Macfarlane to start the race
on n Friday morning so that the boats
may sail iu the daylight and keep in sight
of one another. This would be inconvenient
for Mr. nobrou, as he is quite
busy at this time and would be unable
to get a crew from the ranks who' could
leave their business to go yachting on

Chong Kyau and Muk See Released
for Want of Evidence.
From Kohala comes the news that
Chong Kyau and Muk See, charged with
kidnapping Ng Fai Pin, were acquitted
in the circuit court of that place last
Monday. It probably would be an easy
matter to decide upon the guilt or
of the men by the people of Ko

to convict and the accused regained
The alleged kidnapping was a most
bold and daring deed. It took place
a year ago last September at North
when the 2-year-old child of Ng
Young, whooccupicd a small tract of land
on the edge of a wood, missed the child
during the course of the afternoon. It
afterwanl developed that the child was
seen in comjiany with Chong Kyau. that
being the last time the child was seen. A
thorough search snd reward followed
but without success.
