HONOLULU, Nov. 5 The past
haa been a week of working and
calculating by democrats nnd re
publicans alike. At this writing
both sides arc as certain of victory
as tho Turks are of defeat, and the
same old rulo obtains. Some one
will get it in the throat. Thero was
a largo gathering at tho final rally
of the democrats Monday night
when McCandless throw the hooks
in to Kuhio. Tho same words may
bo used in speaking of tho republi
can rally changing only tho names
of tho persons on whom the hooks
were directed.
The greatest campaign in the his
tory of the islands is that mado by
Cohen. He has been without an
organ though the Advertiser is
obviously not a republican nor de
mocratic mouthpiece and conse
quently, might have boosted Joe to
victory. Its attitudo in tho support
Parker has been much admired
by the straight out republicans, and
croated smiles on faces of those who
have lived hero a long time, and
who know Sam's ability aB a busi
ness man. Before this letter ib

wimd vou for that reason there is
no use prophesying results.
There was only one serious thing
to spoil the fine, glorious, Repub
lican clean sweep on Maui. That
was the terrible accident that wiped
out the life of poor John Vivas.
The well known attorney, who was
running as the Democratic candi
date for Comity Attorney, died in
the hospital before the results of
the election became known.
There is no blame to be attached
to anyone in connection witn
Vivas' death. It was simply one
of those fated events that will hap
pen, from time to time. The
Coroner's Jury that investigated
the matter on Wednesday last re

As soon as Thomson passed the
post, Quill turned in his seat ana
remarked "Hello John." There
was no reply and the car was at
once stopped. To his horror
Thomson found Vivas huddled up
on the floor of the car. The man
was unconscious and had evidently
been stricken by something.

Maui was truo to tho G. 0. P. on
Tuesday last, and tho results of tho
election on this island showed that
the Republican Spirit is just as strong
today on the Valloy Island as at any
timo in the past.
The election proceeded veryquictly
and, except for a family scrap or
two, the day was gone through with
only hard Iwork and intervals for
The Maui News kept tho public
informed of the results of both the
local, Oahu and Mainland elections.
The news from Honolulu and tho
coast was very meager, and all efforts
were directed to keeping the Maui
figures straight. A big crowd gathered
outsido tho News office and, as the
results wero posted on the black
board, cheers went up from the de
lighted Republicans.
It was after midnight before the
final figures for Maui were announ
ced. The crowd then melted away
and except for a fight or two, every
thing was quiet. As far as Maui
went, tho only real interest was
taken in tho contest between Coelho
and Kalama, for tho Chairmanship
of the Board of Supervisors. All tho
other contests were won before a
vote was cast.
In connection with tho fight for
the Chairmanship, it will bo noticed
that both men fell away down on
the vote. This is accounted for by
tho fact that Coelho and Kalama
aro both Union men. Tho brethren
were not disposed to voto for cither
candidate in case, by doing so, they
might injuire tho other "brother".
One of tho Union's creeds is that no
brother can injure another.
The first return in to tho News
office was that of Kaupo, that star
ted tho ball rolling and, incidentally,
showed how strong Kuhio was on
the other side of tho island.
It was not till nine o clock or so
that tho returns began to como in

HANA Nov. 6.
Tho Claudinc, on her usual run
from Honolulu arrived at Hana on
Saturday night, at 7:30, The vil
lagers were notified that the
steamer would return a day earlier
on account of election. Tho crew
had to vote which was quite proper.
In addition to this wo were told
that she would bo in at 3 a.
Monday and, 11 wo wanted our
freight, we had to bo down at 3:30
a. m. to receive it.
Well, well, what next? Instead
01 coming in at d a. m., she camo
along Sunday evening at 9-30, and
at 3 a. m. Monday, she blew her
whistle for all hands to turn out
and go to work. This was about!
tho limit for the peaceful populaco
of Hana.
There is no hurry at all, you
understand, it is just to show what
is to bo expected from tho steam
ship scrvico in this islands. Do
what they wish or go begging for
your freight.
Thero was absolutely no hurry
this week no need of getting to
Kahului any earlier as, by so doing,
the poor stock holders aro out that
extra eight dollars that it costs for
docking at tho wharf at Kahului
before 12 noon.
Of course wo must not forget tho
fact there was a lot of satisfaction
in making tho beggars at Hana
hump their freight this week
It seems about time that, for tho j
comfort of tho steerage passengers
travelling on our Island boats, better
accomodation should bo furnished
them. It is too bad that some good
citizen did not call Secretary Fish-
cr'a attention to this.lt is bad enough
to travel as it is, but have you ever
stopped to think what agony and
suffering goes on in the stcerngo dc
partment of these Island boats?
You, who have never seen tho
steerage of these boats, should go
down and peep into this department
any ono steamer will be enough.
Here is where our Humane Officer
could do a lot of good. Just picture
to yourself if you were poor and
bad to put up with tho state of
affairs. Thousands go through this
ordeal ovory year. Wo hopo tho
Representative from Hana will bo
able to havo a bill passed in thiB
next session of tho Legislature,
where- by tho Bteamship Company
will be compelled to put in berths
for each individual passenger.
If this is impossible, let them go
out of business as passengers boats.

W. II.. Hoogs, representing tho
syndlcato that bought ot the Re
near algaroba mill patent, was on
Maui during tho week.
Mr. Hoogs, who is well known to
everybody, is deeply interested in
the algaroba indust' and he and ,
his partners aro getting down to
real work regarding the turning of
the Kiawo bean into a well balanced
ration that will take the place of
imported barley, corn and oats.
And, when ono stops to remember
that in ono year 1911 tho huge
sum of $1,760,000 was spent on
imported stock feed, tho magnitude
of the industry that is to supplant
the foreign stuff, can bo imagined.
Mr, Hoogs company is getting in
touch with all the' plantation people
and tho resulta, so far, arc very en
Tho difficulty caused formerly by
the excess of oil in tho bean and
which clogged the rollers of the mill,
has been removed. Tho crushing
of tho algaroba bean goes on as
easily as possiblo now, says Mr.
Mr. Hoogs, who was on the Ha
waiian Promotion Committee for
years, is a great traveller. Ho has
visited most parts of tho world and,
last year paid a flying trip to Aus
tralia. Ho was entertained thero
by tho biggest men of tho Common
wealth, and was shown everything
of interest. The Honolulu man re
turned to Hawaii an ardent booster
for tho Island Continent.
While on Maui Mr. Hoogs took
an active interest in local affairs..
Ho declared that Wailuku is a fino,
clean up-to-dato town. "It is a
pleasuro to seo such a town," he
said. "I think that the town is
simply fine. You havo excellent
hotels, and the way tho election
news was given out on Tuesday,
night would have been credit to a
much larger place than Wailuku."
The much traveled ono left for Hilo
on tho Mauna Kea. Ho will placo
the algaroba proposition before the
plantation manager and others of
tho "Big Island."
