The call for the republican con
vention appears in but one En
glish newspaper in the Territory.
Now, then, our
roillicai readers will under
Poverty stand without fur-
mat the republican papers
th.ouchout the Territory are en
titled to a certain degree of consid
eration by our leading politicians,
and to notify each island, through
its own county organ, we believe,
would be what might be due con
learn the date of the convention
must need consult the mornitiir
paper, for no self-respecting editor
will let a committee of bone heads
throw him down a n d feel the
same towards them afterwards.
Hawaii has republican papers,
so has Maui and Kauai has the
best of all. Why then are all
these papers shelved and prefer
ence given to a siusrle naner with
a circulation which d npsn't in
clude ten per cent of those who
reau uieir local papers. Another
peculiar phase is that the Portu
guese papers have also been pass
ed up. In conversation with Mr
Cooper, chairman of the rennhli-
can committee, we learned that
mere were no funds with which to
pay any bills.
If the republican party is so
financially embarrassed as to be
unable to carry on a camnaitrn as
it should be, then by all means
ciiuck it aside for the third party,
woman suffratre or anv old thine.
for to remain a republican under
sucn circumstances will be any
thing but a credit to anv nirm.
For the chairman of a political
club to be compelled to canvas for
bids on printuie a notice which
will not exceed thirty dollors, is
a sorry spectacle indeed.
The drowning of the Pah On
uoy in Waimea last Friday was
nearly duplicated in Hanalei one
night last week, when a Hawaiian
boy, losing his balance, took a
head-ender into eight feet of water.
His rescuerer, however, managed
to reach him just in time to save
him. This should teach us to he-

there will. The tariff is in the
