- Movement to Reach Compro
v mise,- with Juhio for
Mayor ;
v Robert W.. hingle for delegate to
" Concress. and Prince Kuhio for
" mayor of Honolulu Is a program that
prominent Republicans of the city are
-, working towards.
The . Star-DulJetin learned today
. definitely what has been rumored for
fcome days, that .a concerted effort is
being made, to urge upon Shingle that
he become a candidate for delegate.
The movement la strong. It has -enlisted
very prominent Republicans
who were lined up with the Frear
lorces when Shingle was counted a
Kuhio supporter at the territorial con.
- vention last April, j - ' .
Shingle iafco- lohger to be counted
as an out-and-out Kuhio supporter. It
l is thus' evident, and. the fact is taken
for granted that he has found hlmseli
unable to follow Kuhio in the dele
gate's later attacks on the Territorial
' administration.
Shingle's answer to. the urgent re
quest that he ruu for delegate' has
jiot been -given, it was said this morn
ing. He will have that answer ready
within the next twe or three days,ii
is believed, and forae of his friends
doubt if he will wlh to run. '
Together with this movement, there
is an attempt going forward to Induce
the" Gelegate to crme to some com-
; promise in his , fcht and to run for
Mayor. - .
Kuhio's strength did not show itself
in the Republican' precinct club nomi
nations last night,
' " That there wlll be interesting de
velopments shortly is a foregone con
clusion. If the Shingle-for-delegatc
plans prove successful, the Republi
can situation, will clarify itself rap

- "I am a poor man but I stand on
my record for the past. In. -'the Kist
campaign I made the closing speech
and it was said to have ben the
best delivered In the campaign.
"The outcome depends on fair play
in the Republican ranks. Shingle
has an office In the city and county
government and ought to be satisnd.I
have always cosidered the Republican
party as one for the poor as well as

Old Kilanea is in brilliant- action
again! Y "
, Wireless news received today by
the. Star-Dulletin from Hilo is to the
effect that the crater is 'more active
cow than for any time, within the last
thirty years.
Not within., the memory of most of
the hundreds who have been witness
ing the display for the last few hours
has the volcano shown such wonder
ful and awe-inspiring action.,
A; wireless message to the Star-Bul
letin this . morning asked that this
paper notify the Promotion Commit
tee and the Inter-Island Steam Navi
gation Company of the extraordinary
display, ' and notice was accordingly
sent. Only once or twice in a life
time, it is declared, are such chances
given to see the greatest active vol
cano in its greatest activity. :
W. T. Rawlins this mbrnine wire
lessed the Star-Bulletin as follows:
"Kilauea more active than in thirty
years. A grand display of lava foun
tains is shown, and the glow is dis
tinctly visible from Hilo."
The Star-BuWetln's special corres
pondent at Hilo also sent a wireless
roesLage as follows: . i ' " v
"A great red' glare frpm the volcano
colored the sky last night. -Hundreds
of Hilo people watched the display
from their lanals. It Is the most won
derful . sight 'seen since the last big
lava fTow. Prof. T. A. Jaggar, tbe vol
cano expert in charge of the observa
tory, says that the 'fires are more ac
tive now than at any time since he ha,i
been there; He calls, it extraordinary.
Alick, the veteran guide says the dis
play is the most wonderful in the last
thirty years.- . '

The jiext move of the "Progress

waiting for more definite news from
the mainland as to Hawaii's part; in
the August convention.
; But meanwhile they are spreading
Progressive doctrines and principles.
Also they are getting together the
nucleus of organization. Former Gov
ernor. George R. Carter came down
town this morning but no definite
steps were taken today.
"We have not received any permis
sion to go ahead and elect delegates
from Hawaii " said Mr. Carter. "We
shall probably hold a meeting shortly,
but the plans for it are not denfiitely
settled. I am ready to meet any set
of men over two, or any man in de
bate or any organization, to give rea
sons for our attitude and for the Pro
gressive movement. All we can do
just now is to expound our principles
We don't know whether Hawaii it

convention or not."
