CParty From Honolulu Address Crowds At Wailuku And
Puunene Kuliio, Shingle, Breckons Aud Desha
On Stump Big Attendance-Delegate
Still Opposes Frear,.
Politics kept people busy (luring
.'the week and there were two big
Republican rallies one at the Wai
luku Orpheum and the other at
. 'Puunene.
A't the firet gathering a big Hono
lulu delegation were present. Rob
c'rt Shingle, It. W. Breckons, Steph
en Desha and, of course, Kuhio,
-addressed the crowd.

'and' introduced the speakers. The
"first to make his bow was "Bob"
Shingle who. with the Rev. Desha,

'tin English and Desha turned the
-: remarks into Hawaiian. Shingle's
effort did not amount to much, but
he made a ten strike when ho de

ing Kuhio. He gave as his princi
.Ipal reason the fact that he is "mar
v.ricd to a Hawaiian woman and is
.'bringing up Hawaiian children."

' Breckons pointed out clearly the
.4''blt'ssuigs of a Protection tariff, and
showed up the fallacies of a Demo
. cratic Free Trade doctrine. He
wound up his speech by telling the
story of Admiral Nelson at Trafalgar
the yarn about not "seeing" the
signal to cease fighting.
Kuhio was the next speaker and
ho spoke first in Hawaiian. Judg
ing from the applause, the Delegate
mado a hit in his native tongue.
In his English speech, Kuhio re
peated all the well known slogans
of the party. Ho wandered off into
an attack upon Governor Frear, and
repeated the statements ho made in
Honolulu last week.
"Our Duke"
Made Good
Duke Kahanamoku has well re
paid his friends on Maui by giving
three good swimming exhibitions.
All those who donated money to
the Duke Fund, and many others
v io did not give anything, have
ad an opportunity of seeing the
World's Champion in action.
On Wednesday evening Duke
swam and illustrated his strokes
iit Puunene. There was a big
i crowd present, and the sport was
i enjoyed.
On Thursday afternoon Duke
gave un exhibition in the Kahului
Harbor. He swam one hundred
i yards against two men in relays
J ihd beat them. There were several
hundred people congregated along
the wharves and beach. Duke got
a great reception aud was cheered
for his performance.
It was at last night's exhibition in
t the Puunene tank, however, that
Duke put up the best showing of
the present Maui tour. The youth
was like a fish in the water, and
I he, propelled himself as if he were
motor launch. The speed that he
iitiaiiied in one of his
wonderful. Duke now makes the

He has mastered the art thoroughly.
There "'was a large and select
rrQX" . . tot night, and
Kuhio declared that he wants to
go on record as having opposed the
present Administration so that, in
fifteen years from now, when the
Japanese hold the voting power, ho
will not be blamed. ' ' We are going
toward Government by Commis
sion," said the Delegate.
Kuhio said that he had fought
the Administration and would con
tinue 'to do so. He repeated the
"charge" that Governor Frear has
not settled any homesteaders.
Kuhio urged the voters to voto
for the Republican Ticket and he
paid a high compliment to II. P.
Baldwin and H. B. Penhalow. The
Delegate spoke for an hour and made
a good impression.
On Wednesday evening there was
another Republican Rally at Puu
nene, although Shingle and Breakons
had returned to Honolulu, Kuhio
and Desha were on the Job.
There was a large attendance at
the Puunene tennis courts, where a
platform for the speakers had been
erected. F. F. Baldwin introduced
tho orator and then the Delegate and
Desha did their best.
Kuhio repeated, pratically, his
Wailuku speech, and was will re
ceived. He urged the Republican
Voters to vote for the selected can
didates. Desha was eloquent, as usual, and
he did good work.
W. T. Rawlins, who camctoMau
with Duke Kahanamoku, had a few
words to say. Ho spoke of the good
work done by Duke and declared
that the Hawaiian Champion had
done some great advertising for the

"The schools are all doing good

Special Correspondence.
Honolulu, October IS.
Politically, .things look dark for
nearly every candidate in the field
this election. Even Fern feels a slight
tremor as ho looks at Charlie Ilus
tace. Tho meeting on Saturday was a
disappointment to Hizzonor because,
ho says "They didn't do a thing
but knock mo and if Lind McCand
less would loosen I could beat Kuhio
for him." There will be more
scratching, it is thought, than there
has ever been and it will not all be
for tho independent candidates
though they will get a bunch of
votes. Republicans will scratch and
vote the Democrats. Socialists, said
to number 500, will probably vote
for McCandless, and organizations
will do the same. Fern says tho
worst speech against him Saturday
night was made by Kuhio who
ridiculed him because ho never took
in hand the entertainment of tho
Japanese or Chinese princes who
have visited here. As a matter of
fact Fern has never had a look-in
on occasions of that kind; the
Governor takes such things to him
self and has not, since the election
of Fern, extended him an invitation
to bo among those present. The
most disgusting, immoral speech
was made, Joe says, by Reverend
Desha, who prefaced his remarks
by a few hula steps as the crowd
roared in derision. He had not
gone far with his remarks before
there was a call of "Bull Durham"
which seems to have disconcerted
him. Fern is inclined to the opinion
that it would have been better
politics for the speakers to have
struck to tho business of boosting
themselves instead of knocking him.
There was a rumor yesterday,
which remains unconfirmed today,
that tho Republicans recognizing
the futility of an attempt to elect
Sam Parker mayor, will throw their
support to Hustace. Not that in
dividuals are expected to do this
without organization; the report
carries with it the statement that
the Central Committee will tako
action leading to a movement of
that sort.
The most alarming news here is tho
decision in the Ii case which means
the upsetting of titles to about a
million and a quarter dollars worth
of property in tho swell section of
Makiki and Punahou. Judge Wil
der, who represents tho heirs of old
John li, is ready to listen to pro
posals for a compromise from those
who have taken their titles from
persons who had no right to give
them. .Of course the case will be
appealed to the U.S. Supremo Court

Judge Kingsbury Speaks Out Plainly On Vital Subjects
''Indict Those You Believe Guilty,"Is Judge's
AdviceWilliam Walsh Is Made
Foreman of Jury.
On Wednesday morning Judge
Kingsbery opened the October Sess
ion of his court. The Grand Jurors
were all in attendance and they
listened with attention to tho Jud
ge's charge.
A few of the Jurors summoned
asked to be excused. Various reasons
were given and, in some instances,
tho Judge excused tho men.
County Attorney D. H. Case is
placing tho various matters before
the Grand .Try. Tho Judge's
Charges reads a trio'ihiws:
Gentlemen of the Grand Jury:
The subl'inest word in our lan
guage is the word "duty." It is a
word which concerns only moral
beings, and which unites man with
the infinite Truth Light, Love and
Obeyed, it makes us feel praise
worthy and gives tho most perfect
happiness called complacency dis
obeyed, it makes us feel blame
worthy and to despise and hate
ourselves this is torment. Duty
often requires hard work and a
present self-denial. Hence, is some
times shirked. Every duty implies
its correlative right.
Our Government is a system de
signed to serve the happiness of the
people. Things necessary for hap
piness we call "rights" aud the acts
to secure those things, we call
No one can bo so low, weak, mean
and wicked as not to havo some
rights; on the other hand, tho
higher, stronger, nobler, wiser and
abler a man is, the. more duties he
has and tho grpatcr and the more
sacred onc3. To have great and
numerous duties is a matter for
congratulation; while to have many
and mostly only rights is a matter
for commiseration.
The lowest animal has rights; and
the lowest and meanest of men are
the ones stuffed full of rights. In
time of war, tho stronger, nobler,
more patriotic boys have the duty
f goingto tho front and fight for their
councry; while the weak, mean
coward has tho right to stay at home
and be protected by tho performance
of duties dono by tho stronger and
nobler and braver boys. Duties
pertain to strength, to knowledge,
to ability rights portain to weak
ness, to ignorance and to a want of
ability. The young baby ia a little
bundle of rights, on its own account
and also for the sake of childhood
fatherhood of tho race, and it has
as yet no knowledge, strength or
ability, no duties.
Its duties commence with its
powers mental and physical; and
in its strong, young manhood, it
has few rights and many all-important
A3 relating to our government,
we havo no rights against the govern
ment, but wo do have rights under
the government. Wo havo under
our government tho right to life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness
untiljlwe lose some or all of them by
our own wicked conduct.
In order that the great mass of
our people, especially the women
and children and the weak and sick,
may enjoy these rights, there falls
upon the wise, strong and courage
ous, several duties which may be
summed up by saying that they
must fight for those rMs perhaps
with a club or with a gun, or per
haps with the ballotperhaps as
jurymen or as some other govern
mental officer, but fight they must
with some kind of weapon so long
as there are men so weak and wick
ed as to infringe on the rights of
Then, too, society as a mass or
unit or community has rights.
It has a right to unpoluted air and
water; to peace and quiet, where
possible; to decency, to safety, and
to be free from the stench of crime
and untramnicled to pursue its
higher social life and happiness
without the destructive retarding
influence of wickedness and nasti
ness. All these rights of individuals
and of society have their correlative
duties resting upon the wise, strong,
able, good men; and you, gentle
men, as "good men mid true" are
drawn and selected to, as Grand
Jurymen, do your duty in initiat
ing and setting in motion such legal
proceedings as will protect and pre
.servo in and for this community its
right to peace, ' to quiet, to safety
and to decency.
Gentlemen, you arc, for tho Oct
ober 1912 Term, an adjunct of
this Court a part of tho Court.
Your term of duty will be short,
but the responsibility resting upon
you is sacred. No wickedness, no
criminal nastincss can be, at this
Term, prosecuted until you gentle
men charge the guilty parties with
the ofTcnso by an accusing-writing
called an ''indictment."
Gentlemen, consider what if any
offenses have been committed in
your county and accuse tho persons
guilty, in order that they may ans
wer before a trial jury in a pro
ceeding called a "trial."
Consider, too, if there is any
clas3 or kind of offenses that are apt
to bo committed; and if you find
there is, be sure to accuse persons
guilty of such offenses in order thus
to insure your county against in
juries most liable to occur.
Bo strong to stamp out tho crimes
which our people seem most tempt
ed to commit.
The Court will only suggest to
you that lasciviousness is tho cause
of tho indecent crimes of fornication
and adultery and rape, and that it
is your duty to discourage tho coin
mitting of these offenses by initiat
ing proceedings for the punishment
of persons who are guilty.
Especially persons who invado
tho families of others and destroy
the wife, dishonor tho husband and
orphan tho child should not bo
allowed to escape.
Such persons aie moral lenera
endangering social health and life.
So act that fear and shame will fill
their pointing souls.
.Stop tho known rako and tho
adulterer from going about with
brazen-faco and impudont smile aa
to say: "wo caro not, wo fear not,
we regard neither public opinion
nor tho law of tho land.''
Gentlemen, we can not stop all
this, but, we can start tho stopping.
