THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY AUG. 6th. 1912. Issued-Every Tuesday. Entered at the post office at Iiihue, Kauai, as second-class matter. Subscription Rates $2.50 Per ysar, si. 50 for six months IN ADVANCE Advertising Rates, 50 Cents An Inch Per Month. E. B. Bridgewatek, Editor K. C. Hopper, Manager 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- tiier explanation, 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 sideration. Those 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- very careful in getting too near me edge of platforms political and otherwise. The Garden Island will make formal announcement of the can didacy of any member of any party ior nomination on a party ticket, and the following rates win prevail: For Supervisors $ 5.00 Sheriff, Treasurer or Auditor 7.50 For Senators m nn The announcements will appear in each issue of the paper and will oe in uniform style as follows: The Garden Island is autho rized to announce the candidacy of TOHN DOR for republican, democratic tliirH party, socialist or woman suffrage party ior . ; subject to the action of ( ) convention. Won't there be fun when Taft starts out to trv to scare the work ing men with the free trade bugaboos, and points to the benefits of the high tariff, and Teddy fol lows him up with a declaration that the cost of living must be re duced by reducing the Tariff? Yea, there will. The tariff is in the hands of its friends this year. An exchange says a Pittsburg woman had another arrested for calling her a cat. Probably if she had called her a kitten, she would have purred delightedly over the epithet. It is now about time for H. H. Brodie to make some further cut ting remarks about those Hana pepe trees. The Bull Moose party is going to furnish a good deal of amoose ment this summer and fall. The slate by "citizen" in this issue is one which would be hard to beat. What's doing in politics? Oh, nothin' much. it ing Yes it is hot, but not so hot as was a year ago. Stopurekick- It is rumored that opposition is expected in the race for County Attorney. If time is money, loafers should be able to cash in some mighty fat dividends. The third party will most likely get pretty well soused in its efforts to reach Kauai from Oahu. The third party dope reminds us; of our bum railroad crossings slqw about getting into shape. Please take a look at the new wireless mast and then cease won- ddring why wireless messages come so high. According to rumor, opposition is expected in Kawaihau, Lihue and Koloa Districts to the present supervisors. The "dago red" policy being pursued by the Star-Bulletin would indicate that at last Honolulu's! big newspapers have united o n prohibition. Inquiry as to the report that measles had again appeared in Ha nalei, failed to verify the rumor. "There is nothing in the report," said a prominent citizen in answer to our inquiry. Another week has passed and our Lihue crossings remain in the same disgraceful condition The plantation remains as obstinate as ever, the people remain as patient as ever, and autos con tinue to bump over the crossings with the same damage to their machinery. The following slate was given in to this office yesterday with a request to give it space. Senator C. A. Rice. Representative J. K. Lota, J H. Coney, G. P. Wilcox, S. Ro binson. Supervisors W. F. Sanborn, J. Kodngues, H. D. Wishard, W. D McBryde, Francis Gay. The statement in the sporting columns of a recent issue of the Advertiser to the effect that a game of ball had been played be tween the Lihue and Kilauea teams w i t h no friction which was unusual is most erroneous as the two teams in question never have been known to play any thing but a perfectly harmonious game The statement that cattle and horses which roam on the public domain are chiefly owned bv Por tuguese, indicates that the latter are suddenly become possessed with some extremely fine stock or else that somebody is a blame big liar. It is awfully hard to convince some men that others have rights. Betting on ball games should be discouraged. It is bad enough for nonplayers to bet, but for players themselves to place money on the game, is inexcusable. A player who has even a moderate sum of money upon himself, if his team is playing a losing game. becomes a willing prey, to the gambler's, instinct to win the bet at any cost and at once resorts to gambler's methods, which, to say the least are far removed from good, honest baseball tactics. Investigation bv Editnr siiohn m regard to the Rattery case, has brought nut fnote wliicli appear to justify a thorough in vestigation. The Japanese inter preter (Shirai) according to affida vits, has made stntpnipntc whinli would appear to make matters rather serious for Rattery. If, after all, Rattery should be guilty f . i. ... , , . oi me crime wnn wnicn he was charged, he should b e severelv punished. If it c a n be shown that an injustice has been done to the plaintiff, it is up to the at torney general to investigate and to do all in his power to right the wrong, it is the belief of ninnv in whioli wo nnrp1ivc n. cur. t hat a thorough investi eate should be made of thp wlin1 affair. There are many who doubt that any conspiracy existed upon the part of the Japanese, and as there seems to have been only the evidence of a confused, ignor ant woman as a basis for such belief, it is not likely that such evidence will he omisirWpfl mn. elusive in case of a further inves tigation'.
