The date of the con ference ; will ' depend somewhat upon the replies to the letters, but it is likely to be held either next Saturday or a week from next Monday or Tues day. The Republicans will arrive by the Saturday boat from Hawaii and Maui and by the Sunday boat from Kauai and need remain here" hut ' a fchort time. ' ':.:X. ' .;..'.. '.. '. The .. Republican county committee of this island .. has - named a special committee consisting of 'Walter Coombs,' chairman ; ' Clarence Crabbe and John H. Wise, to discuss with .tho territorial committee the question of rules' revision and. now Chairman Shingle is endeavoring to get senti ment from party, leaders throughout the islands as to the details of changes apparently made necessary and other changes deemed advisable. Numerous questions have ; already arisen. One of those considered most important is as to what part the party organizations, the ' territorial : and county ' committees, shall play before the primaries whether ; they . shall use their influence to see that strong candidates are nominated. ' : 1 Another question is as to the for mation of the . territorial and county committees, for which no provision Is made under the new primary law. In asmuch as the - direct primary law is planned to do away with conventions, where; the central committees ; have previously been chosen,- the question of forming the committees under the present law must-be solved.- , ' ' Other - queslionS arising relate to the collection'' and i expenditure ; of campaign funds, !the organization of platform committees, the placing of the newprimary.' law before the peo ple and general discussion ' of party welfare. :r :r:-'j .' r-'.-;-:. -.:::' A-u Chairman Shingle said this morning that . he hopes to have a good repre- (Continued on page three) Y- , ; f Associated presa CaWeJ r .
