A morning session was convened for the pur pose of various committees who had been appointed for the formation of a platform, rules, etc., and whose reports were read and with comparatively few changes, adopted. At twelve o'clock, a recess until 1:30 was declared, and the dele gates repaired to the palatial home of Hon. W. H. Rice, where a bountiful feast of roast pig and other Hawaiian delicacies awaited their attention. Following the luau, they return ed to the hall where the work of leading reports was resumed, after which the regular work of nomina tion of candidates was begun. No opposition save the County At itorney's office, was evidenced, and ti;e matter of selecting the candi dates was not in the least difficult. The County Attorney's office was sought by Sam Kaeo and Attorney Kaulukou. The latter gained for some time, but, Kaeo's supporters rallied to his assistance and gave him 34 votes to his opponent's 20, landing the plum to Kaeo by a good majority. The Platform The Republican Party of the County of Kauai believes that the electors of this County ate entitled to a f till and free statement of the principles upon which we stand and that these electors are entitled to a written declaration or pledge on behalf of its candidates upon all important issues now before this County. Reaffirming allegiance to the p!well known principles and tradi tions of the Republican Party of the Nation and to its policies as outlined in the National Platform, we hereby especially endorse the hitrh-minded a n d statesmanlike platform adopted by the Republi can Territorial Convention assem bled at Honolulu, September 16th, 1912 and in addition to these prin ciples and traditions we hereby announce to the electors of the County of Kauai the following platform: The President: 1 We heartily endorse the wise and conservative administration of the office of Chief Executive by President Taft. Governor Frear: 2. We endorse the vigorous and successful- administration of Governor Frear and are proud of the results thereby accomplished for the welfare of the Territory of Hawaii. The Delegate: 3. We congratulate the Terri tory on the continued remarkable success of Delegate Kalanianaole in obtaining financial and other legislation by Congress for Hawaii nei. Such results call for his re election as a matter of course. Kauai Republican Legislators: 4. We heartily endorse a n d support the honest and faithful work o f the Kauai Republican Legislators whom we had the good fortune to nominate and elect in 1910, and hereby express our ap preciation of the way in which they showed their ability in dis charging their difficult duties and for securing for the County of Kauai the long needed legislation and appropriations. Republican Supervisors: 5. We higHiy commend the work of the Republican Board of Supervisors of the County of Kau ai in redeeming the pledges given to the people in the last campaign. Their fulfillment of the pledge relative to the building, construe tion and improvement of our roads, bridges, and schools, their hand ling of the County's finances so that the wage-earners of this Coun ty have had regular employment; their administration o f matters connected with the jails, schools, and sanitary matters committed to their charge by the Legislature of 1910 are worthy of the Republican Party's approbation. Honest, Economical Administra tion of County Government. 6. We demand for the people honest, economical and efficient administration of County Govern ment by the officers thereof, and will use every effort to require County Officials to spend the public money to the best advantage, and that in the building of schools and new school rooms; the building and construction of good roads within this County and of other public works, the public money shall not be wasted and that com petent officials only shall be en gaged to control mid direct the expenditures required for such purposes. 7. We heartily cudosc the plank adopted by the Territorial Conven tion regarding the public lands and their administration. 8. Board of Health. We recom mend the successful efforts of the Territorial Board of Health to con stantly improve the agencies guard ing the public health and favor such legislation as will increase the efficiency of this most important branch of the public service. Wc strongly endorse a continuation of the liberal administration of the public health department. We commend the Legislature for having made ample appropria tion for the schools which enabled this county to increase its teaching force from 58 teachers in 1910 to 95 in 1912. and we ask that the appropriation be encreased com Uieusurate w i t h the increased growth of our schools. W e furthermore pledge our party's support for a libercl appro priation for the erection a n d maintenance ot a High School for Kauai that our children may have the same educational advantages at home instead of having to leave the Island as they are now forced to do, and if it becomes necessary to issue bonds for this purpose we favor such legislation as will allow us sufficient funds to carry on the same. We pledge that our Board of Supervisors will continue to erect additional school rooms as our needs demand it. 10. We pledge our Supervisors to provide adequate janitor services for the public schools and provide a stricter enforcement of the truancy law. We pledge our Senators and Representatives to work for a n additional appropriation sufficient to erect suitable buildings for our Court, County Offices and Jail. We recommend that the Super visors install a water works for Hanalei when funds are available. Firmly believing that no Party should be entitled to ask for the suffrage o f the electors of the County of Kauai unless such Party should first declare itself upon t h e foregoing principles, w e solemnly pledge ourselves and our candidates to the foregoing. WHO THEY ARE FOR SENATOR C. A. RICE: Mr. Rice has done such excellent work during his reDresentativeshin that it is needless to say more than to add that by sending him to the Senate, the voters will not only show their appreciation of all he has done for the interests of Kauai, but will be placing a man at the head of our affairs, w h o understands every phase o f the political situation, which means that if there's any thing coming to Kauai, she will get it. FOR REPRESENTATIVES J. K. LOTA: -The Hanalei candidate for representative is our well known supervisor, and cx deputy sheriff. T. K. Lota, like Mr. Rice, he, too, is too well known to require an introduction. He is in the race, asks our assistance and should get it. W. J. SHELDON: Here is Mi other political horse who is bridle wise to the least detail of the needs of his district. He is from the Waimea district, and the fact ti.'at he has been there lcfore, is proof sufficient to warrant the support of the voters. J. II. CONEY: Genial Jack, the 1oliticfll war hor?c of Kauai. And who doesn't know that he is one of the most capable men we have In the game. Vote for him? Why you can't help it, if you desire to add another capable man to our list of experts. RUFUS S P A L D I N G M r. Spalding, is another popular man, and while new in political harness, it requires no prophet to say that to put your vote on him will be one of the wisest acts of your lite. FOR SUPERVISORS II. D. WISIIARD: As chair man of the Board of Supervisors for years, during which time he has proven himself without a peer in the discharg ol his duties as such, Supervisor Wishard is out to succeed himself in the Lihuc Dis trict. He will get there, too, with both feet. Walter McBryde, the Koloa nominee for Supervisor, has a reputation for progressivencss which insures him the supiort of every sensible voter on the island. Francis Gay, is not only a high ly capable man but might be justly termed the "gentleman super visor." His reelection is assured. MR. EKEKELA: Another new aspirant for the position of supervisor, for the Kawaihau dis trict. He is said to be a young man o.f exceptional ability, and we learn that he deserves the sup port of the people. MENEFOGLIO: He is a new man on the political horizon, but as he works by electricity, is said to be a mighty speedy man. We are more than glad to welcome him to our fold and start nim with a hearty kukual FOR SHERIFF THE SHERIFF: The fact that Willie Rice has had no opposition even from the democratic ranks, indicates the confidence the people impose in him. He is a natural born sheriff and is as good as elected right now. FOR ATTORNEY COUNTY ATTORNEY: Sam Kaeo made a gallant fight, and finally won the nomination by a small margin. Suffice to say he won out and that he will land the plum again. FOR CLERK COUNTY CLERK: John Ka neakua handles the clerkship so successfully that his nomination was a matter course, mat lie wm ne elected there is no doubt for in addition to his ability as clerk, he is one of the most popular officials on the county pay roll. FOR TREASURER Harold Morgan, the man who is soliciting your vote for treasurer ship, is one of Kauai's well-known young business men. and has for the past six mouths or so, ad ministered the office to the satis faction of everyone. I f elected, which he surely will be there is no doubt but the county's strong box will be properly guarded. FOR AUDITOR COUNTY AUDITOR: C. Ma ser is again the nominee for this position. He has asked for a life time lease on it, and the least the t 0R00D CLUB MEETS The beautiful home ot Mr. and Mrs.. A. D.
