WHY McCARN HAS FAILED.
W VVV MrfARNr in n series of letters to the Newspapers in his
f I home town of Nashville, is giving some extremely ex parte in
formation concerning the various troubles in which lie has man
aged to become involved during his short residence in Hawaii. He vir
tually tells the Tennessee people that everybody in the Islands is trying
to pet hi crnnt. Attompv General Rtainbcak. a man from his own
state, a life-long Democrat, and a resident of Hawaii for but two years,
he tells the Nashville Banner, "is somewhat under the influence of his
political enemies.' He refers to "unfriendly' newspapers, and says
"The truth is I have been assaulted from every angle not only from
the petty criminal, but by the large interests that feel that they would
rest better if I were not in this Territory."
The truth of the matter is that the district attorney has no one but
himself to blame for his various trilikias. No federal official ever took
uo his duties in this Territorv under more auspicious circumstances.
His expressed determination to fight unrighteousness in various forms
and his known attitude on the liquor question, won him the strongest
support that could have been given any man. Every newspaper en
dorsed his program, and continued to hold up his hands, long after he
had won the cordial dislike of every reporter whose duty it was to visit
his office. He offended the members of the bar, who through real good
will attempted to help him to understand local conditions, and chose as
confidents and advisors a number of lawyers who have little else than
their deniorrnrv to reromnienn1 them. He lieedlesslv aroused the re-
sentment of the Hawaiians and made himself ridiculous, because he
would not he told nnd would not take time to learn for himself. His
l:irW of self rontr ol in the court room, his intemperate outbursts, and
his apparent desire for physical combat, did not help him in the good
opinion of the better element of the community. And when he finally
did become involved in a fistic encounter, his attempt to use a revolver
(which he had in his pocket) was but the culmination of his other in
Mr. McCarn cannot blame the people of Hawaii for his failure. Nor
can he truthfully claim that political influence has had any part in his
undoing. The backing which he had in the beginning wasuninflnenced
by faction or creed, and represents the strongest force in Hawaii today
the force that stands for decency and righteousness. Mr. McCarn has
failed. His successor will succeed on Mr. McCarn's own platform
provided he is man enough for the job.
THE RIVAL CANDIDATES.
THINGS politioal are beginning to warm up on Maui. Kuhio
and Rice, rival candidates for the Republican nomination as del
egate, arrived simultaneously about the middle of the week and
have been busy ever since. The line of operations of each seems to be
largely the same, viz. the personal contact plain, and neither has been
idle since they arrived. George R. Carter, Bull Moose candidate, is
expected over next week, and McCandless, of democratic fame may be
looked for shortly. There is every reason to believe that Rice will get
very strong support from Maui republicans against Kuhio, who has
done little in the past four years to merit the confidence of the people
of the Territory. He formerly was an effective representavive, but in
late years the Islands have virtually been without an official represen
tative in the National Capital. The commercial bodies at the present
time find it necessary to appoint a private representative to do as well
as possible in an unofficial way, what Kuhio should do, and in his offi
cial capacity, might be expected to do more effectively. Kuhio pleads
illness, but if illness has made him the inefficient figure-head he has
been for the past four years, it is high time that he was permanently
David Lloyd Conkung, territorial treasurer, has announced his
candidacy for the treasurership of the City and County of Honolulu
Mr. Conkling was asked for his resignation because of political exigen
cies, and it will take effect as soon aa he has completed the floating of
the million and a half dollar bond issue, on which mission lfc is now on
his way East. He will not be able to make a personal campaign,' but
his friends believe that he can secure the nomination without trouble on
' his splendid record alone.
Thk sudden drop of sugar from $66.50 to $62.50, this week, is thus
far unexplained. The only consolation is that the bulk of the crop has
already been marketed, and prices may revive before the new season
Two per cent of the voters in Mexico went to the polls on Sunday.
The Maui percentage on the bond issue was better than that, anyhow.
Clarence Cooke a Candidate
Clarence II. Cooke, of Honolulu,
has announced his candidacy for
re-ek-ction to the house of repre
sentatives. He is president of the
Bank of Hawaii, and of the Wai
luku, I'aia, and Lahaina banks,
and is one of the staunch republi
cans of Oahu.
Ad Club Coming
A large majority of the members
of the Honolulu Ad Club now are
planning a trip to Maui in con
nection with the meeting of the
Civic convention. President Wal
lace R. Farrington has appointed a
committee to take charge of the
necessary arrangements. Star-Bulletin.
