' "for four days we had been getting in close touch with the situation, when that vote on McGovern for chairman came up. We 'were not instructed by the Taft forces and took the responsi bility of the" action , on our own shoul . ders. . ; 1 . . . . But there were conditions prevailing at that time that. In many ways. Ha waiian people do not realize existed. We found that our ballot, wouldt not swing the tide either way, knew it could not injure-Taft, knew our instructions did not compel us to-vote with his men on thii point at Issue, and felt that by casting our lot temporarily wkh Roose velt we would le employing' a bit of political tactics that: might help the Territory. ; , : ' ' Vott'Created Surprise. "Of course, when our vote, was an nounced, it created som6 surprise on both ;ldes, but the Taft men wfre feoon rea ured i-'iad. .u hm-vlliy-inderstood our position "iigreed that we had done what was right.". . v - y i The Governor - made - no , comment tending cither lo confirm or deny the rumor that the vote for McGovern help ed obtain H definite promlse,of Frear's reappointment, and checked a possible ' move to reduce the Hawaiian delegation from six. to two or four members. lie termed Hawaii's stand with . Roosevelt on the contested California delegates as "purely a decision between right and wrong," in which, as In the former case, the "ferritorial delegates . were not bound, by their Instructions and felt 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, should not have opposed the sea'tlng of the two contested California delegates, but should have let them In. as th;y did the Texas men. If they had consented to seating the Cali fornia men, we believe they would have eliminated a large portion of the ill feeling between the factions, so that the split In the party might have been avoided. "We 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 Taft's strength would not have been seriously' weakened. ' . Governor Frear's first visitor, arriv ing shortly after the executive had en tered his office at the Capitol this morn ing, was ex -Governor George R. Car ter, resplendent in a brand-new "T. R.? campaign hat. For nearly an hour these two rehearsed the scenes . and eventa of the? big convention for the benefit of E. A. Mott-Smith, who this morning officially retired from the ex- A ecutlve chamber to his own offlie as secretary of the Territory.' Closefy fol lowing Carter came Joseph P. Cooke, who remained In private conference with the Governor for some time.

Special Cornspondence, Star-Bulietih.J WASHINGTON, D. C, June 27. The Liberal or Progressive partj "in formally" formed In Chicago, by the delegates who refrained from voting when the presidential nomination was made, does not seem destined to be come either formidable or aggressive, in the opinion of politicians here. Al though Colonel Roosevelt was pro claimed the candidate chosen by this mis-called rumot convention, it is con sidered doubtful whether a real as semblage will even be held to ratify the pronouncement made. There is talk of a gathering at Denver in August, where the Liberals or Progressives will frame up a platform and choose nominees for President and Vice President, but the wise ones shake their heads and say this will never be called to order. The old warhorses here declare that the Roosevelt delegates met and enun ciated their faith in the colonel as a salve to his fallen pride and wounded feelings. It was simply like : giving a lump of sugar to a small boy after getting his lingers mahed. It is said that all the followers of the colonel who are candidates for office on regu lar tickets can not afford to accept his newly-raised standard and march un der it. Governor Stubbs of Kansas Is mentioned as an illustration of this maxim. lie is an avowed candidate for the United States Senate. He can not hope for success as a bolter. "It is es sential above all things that he remain in the party as now constituted and mtike his fight along regular tines. Those supporting him. can not afford to be classified as out of the organiza tion.
