" Returns from all the town precincts
were received by the Star-Bulletin to
day,, special arrangements being made
by this paper to get an early forecast
of,, the strength of the vote. Up to
noon the' vote was heavy enough, to In;
dicate that probably half of the voters
would cast their ballots by-one o'clock
this afternoon.,-.
Little was .heard from out-of-town
precincts except that .the weather Is
COotTand the, vote Is slow, the voters
apparently preferring to stand around
and discuss; matters, good deal be
fore casting their ballots.

o'clock, and a , telephone reiwrt to

benefit of it.

Delay in getting up instructions to

tact.-he i wis seated on the platform
but did no,t.' speak' for Democracy, al
though 'g. F. Affonso, a veteran Re
publican legislator, repudiated Kuhio
and practically denounced the Re
publican organization.
Another; report was that the Plant
ers' Association had received a pri
vate cablegram to the effect that
Roosevelt's election is certain. This
report aroused much interest and
was heralded with joy by Republi
cans who have been fearing Wilson's
election. Several cablegrams were
undoubtedly received by local busi
ness men whose names-' cannot be
given prophesying victory for the big
Bull Moose.
TG votes had been cast out of 383 reg

Polls were established at Wilder
avenue and Punahou street on the the
ory that the upper Manoa voters
would cast their ballots as they came
down town and got off at the street
car junction, but the balloting went
slowly in s.pite of this arrangement.
At 11:05 o'clock 140 out of 300 ballots
had been cast. Five booths only out
of six were in use, the authorities hav
ing failed to provide enough voting
Instructions, etc.
At 1:40 this afternoon 314 votes had
been cast. This leaves a balance of !
173 to account for the full registra-!
tion. !
Fourth Precinct, Fourth District.
This was one of the quietest pre
cincts of the fourth district At 10:55
oclock 14". out of 362 ballots had been
cast and the serenity was all pervad
ing. The polls were almost deserted
and party workers reported that the
voters had already made up their
minds before coming to the polls and
could not be changed.
Fifth Precinct, Fourth District.
Thomas Square, the polling place,
was quiet all day. At 10:45 o'clock
120 out of 332 registered votes had
been cast. The Republican precinct
club set up a marque in a couple of
hundred feet from the polling place
and dispensed soft drinks and kind
words to all alike, not drawing the line
at Democrats. In fact, such a lead
ing Democrat as William Wolters par
took of soda water at the invitation of
I those in charge. "Billy" Thompson,
( G. Ballentyne, Lawrence Judd. com
mitteeman for the precinct, and oth
ers, were in charge of getting out the
vote and made complete arrangements
for doing so.

At 10:40 o'clock today the "brewery

men steadily, and 195 out of 44ti votes
had been cast, with the line moving
rapidly through the polling places.
There was no evidence of disorder
and a police officer kept up a show
of authority when electioneering near
the polls became too obvious. Charles

was keeping a watchful eye out at

But none of these awards have yet

the next session of that body. It is
likely that when the facts relating to
the proceedings in the local federal

the appropriation bill is under con

made greater than the authorization,
of $350,000.

Government, has lost no time in for

board, though fully aware of the im

concentrating their attention on that
smaller stock from which the cottag

makes his living. The board's scheme
for the encouragement and. develop

scale. It. provides for the establish
ment of poultry stations throughout
the country, from which the distribu
tion of eggs of pure breeds of fowls
may be made, and also for a liberal
extension of poultry instruction,., in
which the three agricultural colleges
at Glasgow, Edinburg and Aberdeen
are being asked to xperate. A con
siderable number of additional instruc
tors and instructress will have to be
appointed, and the board is at pres

ral colleges. The candidates, it is
laid down, must be thoroughly prac
