The county convention came off
last Saturday in a manner most
commendable to every individual
cJMiected with the manipulation
of the political wires. 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,
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
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
The Republican Party of the

Kauai Republican Legislators:
4. We heartily endorse a n d
support the honest and faithful

for securing for the County of
Kauai the long needed legislation
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
Honest, Economical Administra

County Officials to spend the public
money to the best advantage, and
that in the building of schools and

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

Island as they are now forced to

favor such legislation as will allow

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
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
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
Harold Morgan, the man who is
soliciting your vote for treasurer

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.
