Iy a close vote and after consider
able lively discussion and a fiery
speech by 'Supervisor Pacheco, the
Democratic county committee last
night declared a lack of confidence in
S,ujfcrvisor.s Lester Petrie, V. II. Mc-
j Clellan and John Markham.
I The committee took action because
these three party membrrs have re
'fused to oust Republican office-holders
of the city and county and substitute
l Democrats therefor. The county com
mitt ec claims that under the pledge
taken convention by these men, they
are bn:::i:l to put. r.ono by Democrats

'they -will not oust good men to put in

j l'of.t nt;l Dr. P.irch were prominent, in
;tb discussion last night. Parron of
j I'ered the following resolution, which
j later carried by a vote of IP. to 11 :
i "We. the county committee of th
j Democratic party, vote a lack of con
ilidence and disapprove the actionR of
Supervisors Petrie, McClcllan and
j Markham in placing Republicans in
: office ami opposing Mayor Pern and
Harron spoke emphatically on nis
"When I meet with the county com
I mince. 1 -case to be Charles P.arron
! and bec.-ne a member of the party and
! b.uii;.! to uphold the regulations and
l 'on, ! (, tto party." lie said. "There
is nothing personal in this fight. We
jmust sacrifice our personal feelings
and work for the county committee
and partv unity."
Sup rvis r Pacheco. chairman of the j I
ed before the county, committee, as is
his risht Hud made a hot speech
against the three supervisors, who, he
dcclftred, refuse to recognize the rules
c.f the party or the sanctity of their
pledge. He declared that, if the coun
ty committee did not sustain him in
censuring these party members and
in upholding the right of the party be
fore individuals, he would reserve the
ripht hereafter to vote as he pleases
without regard to the party rules.
Pert Lightfoot and Dr. Birch were
among those who opposed the resolu
tion, arguing that the supervisors
should be allowed discretion in per
forming their duties.-
Finally, after the passage of the res
olution, P! to 11, a committee of three,
with C. J. Waller as chairman, wan
appointed to take up with the super
visors tho advisability of putting none
but Democratic in office
The party indorsed G. J. Waller for
Governor in the following resolutions:
'Whereas-', in view of the fact" tC
C J. Waller, of Honolulu, rhas been a
lifelong Democrat; and
"Whereas, the said (',. J. Waller is a
businessman of re--omiied ability and
integrity, of many years' residence i
the Hawaiian Islands and
"Whereas, the office of Governor for
tiH; Territory of Hawaii is to become
vacant soon after the inauguration of
Honorable Wood row Wilson as Presi
dent of the United States;
"Now, therefore, be is resolved by
: !io Dmocratie county committee of
the City and County of Honolulu. Ter
i to'-y of Hawaii, that it is the srr.se
ot :;;i.i comnii:ee that the said O. J
V. t.i'er should ,r. appointed to the of
fice of Governor of Hawaii Territory
and said committee does hereby re
spectively petition and ur?e that after
his anui!-:uration as President '
dispensed with by the committee on
roads, bridges, parks and public im
provements. Notwithstanding his re
moval, Mr. Cathcart would not stay
'put out,' but continued to act as chief
clerk under John Wilson, until the ap
pointment of E. C. Wilder as his suc
cessor. Between the 17th of Febru
ary. 1911. . and the 20th of February.
1911, Mr. Cathcart presented a claim,
. . m t M A. W .
to tno Doara or supervisors ior ue
sum "of 75. covering the period ;'of
tlmd from February 1st, 1311, to Feh
ruarjr 15th, 1911. This claim, tho com
mittee on roads first refused to allow.
The I action ojf isis - committee 'called
forth ; from Mr. Cathcart a communi
cation u February . 20. . In this coin-,
munjication, Mr. Cathcart, among othe.r
things, gaid: - ;"; Y--
' desire to state that: whatever
decision you may arriye at shalv be
accepted by me as conclusive, ' final
and binding, and will not appeal there
fron y V have thus placed my claim
in 3)ur hands, feeing, secure that-I
will I obtain equity from ypu.' , , s
"Two things wiU . be- noticed from
this' communication; first, that' .Mr.
Cathcart made claim at that time only
for one-half month- to February 15,
19Htj and Becond, that he stated em
phatically,, that whatever decision the
board might arrive at would bo accepted-
by him - as conclusive, final
and! binding. Y : :
"fhe committee on ways and means,
Marc!r3, reported "that" theY'tequest
was! recdmmended it be granted. On
the fame day, March -3, "1911; there
was fIed in the office of the city and
county clerk a salary demand by
Robe ft W. Cathcart, claiming s com
pensation from February' 1," to" Feb
ruary 15, 1911, fifteen days, at the
ratef of fl60i per month The amount
claimed in i that salary demand. ?75,
was receipted for by Mr. Cathcart.
"The facts stated by ine so far hare
bee ngathered from the records of the
various 'departments of the city and
county. I further learn that Mr.
Cathcart never reported for duty to
the new road overseer, Mr. Wilder,
and did not perform or offer tp per
form any services under the new ap
"So far as. the official action of the
board was concerned, Mr. Cathcart's
employment terminated on . the 31st
day of January, 1911, and. whatever
services he' performed In the month
of February were contrary to the of
ficial expressed will of the supervis
ors. His claim then for services for
the first half of February, 1911, was,
to. say the least, a doubtful one. Ordi
narily, a person having a doubtful
claim, who makes a demand for what
be then considers he is legally and
justly entitled to, and couples, that
demand with a statement that what
ever action is taken will be deemed
by him conclusive, final and binding,
is more than satisfied, whep the de
mand he makes is allowed in full.
"Not bo Mr. Robert William Cath
cart, the claimant in this case. He
received all he asked for he remain
ed' somnolent and acquiescent for
nearly two years in the matter," and
now comes forward making a further
claim for compensation based upon
what is termed, legal,' 'just,' 'equit
able,' and 'moral' grounds.
"Upon none of these grounds can
he recover. A claim that Is utterly
devoid of a"ny of these features, that
is without a scintilla of consistency,
and that has no standing in any sys
tem of jurisprudence, I think should
be rejected by the board of super
visors. "FRED. W. MILVERTON,
"First Deputy City and County Attorney."
