"Two Ballots for the Roosevelt Forces were for Good of Hawaii" . -For th? good of Hawaii," Is the ?uccinct explanation of the - Hawaiian delegation's two votes with the'Roose velt forces at the Chicago convention, given by f!overnor Jtear, spokesman for the delegation, who arrived home tlds morning on the Wilh'lmina. ' , 1 "For four d.lys we had been gettingj In close touch with the situation, when that vote on UcGovern, for chairman I came up. We were not Instructed by the Taft forces" and took the responsi bility of the action on our own'shoul- - dera. ' ' V . ' "Hut there were conditions prevallina at that time that. In many ways. Ha - . wallan , people do not realize existed- , We found that our ballot would not swing the tide either way, knew it could not injure Taft, knew, our instructions did not compel us to votewith his men on the point nt ue, and felt that by . casting our lot temporarily with Roose velt we-would be employing a' bit of political tactics that might help " the i TtrrJtory.

He termed Hawaii's stand with Roosevelt on the contested California delegates ar "jurely a decision between . right. and. wrong," In which, as. In the former case, the Ternitbrial delegates were not bound by. their instructions and Je!t ; that no- momentous result hinged on their attitude. ' . Made Grave Error. . "We-were. inclined to think: that, the Taft forces; as a matter ; of political tact, hould not have; opposed the seating of the two Untested California ' delegates, "but should have let ,them in. n thev did the Texas men. Ifl, they had consented o seating the Cali fornia fnen we. believe they would have eliminated a large portion of the ill fetling between the factions, so that the rpllt In the party might have 'been avoided. . . - ' rWe believed at the time that the Taft men were making a big tactical mistake. The Intense feeling aroused - by the California demonstration would not have: occurred, and at the same time: Taffs strength would not; have .been seriously , weakened.
