1071 BISHOP ST.
The Republican Bolter Who lias Been Called the Jimmy Boyd of
D. 11, Kahaulelio, the bolting Rcpublicai? of Maui County, who was
nominated for" County Clerk by the Home Rulers, arrived in' town yes
terday morninpf by the steamer Maui. He Says the matters in connec
tion with his nomination' for County Clerk '.have been misrepresented.
He says that he never was a candidate for County Clerk. Georpc Max
well being t'hc only candidate. He was a candidate for Tax Assessor
and Collector and was nominated, But afterwards Judge Kalua, his
foster father, asked him not to run against W. T. Robinson, the Re
publican candidate for Assessor", and thereupon he stated to the con
vention this request and declined the nomination witli the approval of
the convention. His brother D. K. Kahaulelio was thereupon nominat
ed for Assessor. Maxwell withdrew from flic position of nominee of
the convention for County Clerk, and D. I I. Kahaulelio was nominated.
Kahaulelio gives as bis reason for withdrawing from the Republican
party not because the party failed to nominate hjm for office, for he says
he could have been nominated if be had wanted to be, but because of
the animosity to him of W. F. Pogue. This animosity, Kahaulelio says,
dates back to the legislature of i8$8. Last year, Kahaulelio says, he
withdrew from the contest for nomination to the legislature in order if
possible to secure harmony in the party. But it was so evident to him,
he says, that Poguc's opposition to him was just as lively as ever, that
he came to the conclusion that his political future would be best served
by getting into a different party from that of Pogue.
GET PIN MONEY.
Some facts have become known during the last few days which
throw some light on the trade in motor cars among people of position.
More than one lady in society is adding considerably to her income by
this means. During the past twelve months a certain well known lady
of title alone has sold twenty, and when it ,is realized that the commis
sion varies from 15 to 20 per cent, and thai, the price of a car may be
anything between $2500 and $5000, it will readily be seen how profit
able an agency is to a lady who has opportunities of singing the praises
of a particular make of car to wealthy friends.
To help his titled agent the manufacturer places one, sometimes
two, cars at her disposal, usually at her country house, sends down
competent chauffeurs in smart uniforms, and keeps the cars in thorough-going
order, knowing well that a good run is more likely to in
fluence a prospective purchaser than most things.
My lady manages her share of. the business quite easily. Several
non-motoring men' and women are invited to her place in the country
for the week-end. A smart motor car, perhaps two, meets them at the
station and conveys them to the house some few miles away in a few
minutes, and that short run suffices to break down prejudices and cre
ate interest in the perhaps hitherto despised mode of locomotion.
The fair hostess is charmed that they liaVe enjoyed, the ride so much,
is astonished to hear that they have never' fiuden in a. motor car be
fore, and promises a long drive on the morrow. The ciiauffeur makes
quite sure that his car is in perfect running order, for on no account
must there be a breakdown, and the next morning, after a leisurely
breakfast, a party is made up, and a nice little run the coast and
back about 100 miles or so-Ms easily accornplished before dinner.
The non-motoring guests are converted at 'once and forever. They
place orders for cars exactly like my lady's, and mention her name as
a surety of special attention. The order is booked and my lady receives
a check for commission. Tit Bits.
AT THE EXPERIENCE MEETING.
"Brethren and sisters," said the stranger who had just risen, "I want
to confess that I was 'Once the slave of drink. I "
"Amenl Hallelujah "'shouted an enthusiastic old lady.
"I was a mere child when I began to form the pernicious habit. Per
haps my parents were to blame for not looking after me more carefully,
but we will let that pass. I grew up to be a young man and my appe
tite grew with me. At last the demon obtained such a mastery over
me I forgot to mention that it was not Demon Rum, but the Demon

I experienced a mad desire to rush

day's hot spell-12 persons had been prostrated by the heat and 51 by
the soda fountains I laughed, the
turn came. One day, after putting away 15. glasses, of my favorite bev
erage, I did not feel well. I went to a doctor. After I explained mat
ters he drew such a picture of the
stomach that I summoned up all my
from that moment.
"Brethren and sisters. I am a changed man. From that hour I have
never touched soft drink. When the hot weather comes I indulge in
beer with moderation, brethren and sisters that is to say, with as
much moderation as you can reasonably expect from a thirsty man in
summer. And I feel, brethren and sisters, like a fighting cock "

HOW WE REGARD THE "SMART SET."
Dean Richmond,,rm 'sneaking of the insane faction of the "smart
set," which keeps its follies so constantly before the 'public, says:
The senseless class in the public imitates them; the sober, thinking
class have a pitying contempt for them; the earnest Christians blush for
them; the patriotic American abhors them, and the genuine aristocracy
of America and Europe laugh at them.
The last attitude is the only one that is likely to hz.vc any rcf6rma
THE SILENT AGENT.
Percival Link of England should be raised to the peerage without
delay, for he has invented a silent insurance agent on the nickel-in-the-slot
principle. The machine is now in use in a few places, and issues
accident insurance policies good for' one week tip to the amount of the
policy holder's weekly earnings. One can put a penny in the slot and
then dodge a pencil that is hurled at him by the machine. With the
pencil the possible victim writes his name on a card that rushes from
the mouth of the machine, and is swallowed again as soon as it has
teen written on. As it goes down the machine's teeth bite the hour
ruHdate on the ticket, which is put on record somewhere in the affair.
Then an insurance policy appears, mysteriously filled out, 'and all the
policy holder then 'has to do is to go somewhere and get hurt.
iA short time ago it was noted that there was to be an endeavor to
tame and breed the zebra of Africa in captivity, that is, to domesticate
this, swift and beautiful animal. Now the intelligence comes of the
probable success of crossing the horse and the zebra, experiments in
which have bce,n carried on for some years by Germans in their "sphere
of influence" in East Africa. Prof, Cassar Ewa'rt has been trying this
since 1895, and the result of crosses from m,ares and zebra stallions is
what is called the "zebrula," which is hardy, more lively than the mule,
and quite as intelligent. Moreover, this offspring of the zebra and the
common mare retains the immunity' of the zebra itself from the horse
disease of Africa and the tsetse fly.

AND WAS INSTANTLY KILLED
THIS MORNING AIJOARD THE
STUAMHU 1CIS AU 110V.
A fatal accident occurred nt the Inter-Island
whnrf tills morning. Sl
innna a Japanese sailor of the Steamer
Ke Au Iloti, was killed Instnntly by
falling from aloft from the mainmast
of the vessel. So far can be learned,
I the accident appears to have been the
result of his own carelessness.
The Japanese climbed aloft to the
fore mast head for the purpose of mak
ing fast the cargo pennan.t He climbed
up the fore stays. When he reached
the point on the mast where the stays
and halyards are made fast he took a
bowswatn's chair which he had car
ried with him, and lnshed this chair
fast to the halyards. He used a small
piece of rope to make his chair fast
He then seated himself in the chair
and prepared to but the pennant in
It was necessary to cut the line hold
ing the pennant. The circumstances
Indicate that the Japanese made a mis
take and cut the rope that held the
bowswaln chair. In any event this
lope gave and he fell to the deck be
low, a distance of about CO feet. No
body appears to have seen the man
fall. Captoln Tullett was standing
on the forward part of the upper deck
of the steamer and his attention was
attracted to the affair by hearing the
body of the sailor strike the deck. The
body evidently struck on the back for
so far as a cursory examination show
ed, the skull had not been crushed. The
police were notified of the accident and
removed the body to the morgue. An
Inquest will be held.
The deceased had been employed on
the steamer for several years and wns
quite an efficient sailor. An examina
tion of the bite of rope that had been
used to hold the bowswaln chair in
place, showed that the rope had been
cut. The Japanese Is thought by Cap
tain Tullett and the other officers about
the Inter-Island wharf to have in some
manner cut this rope, Instead of that
which was to release the pennanr.
PRAYER OF THE PREDACEOUS
(W. E. P. French in Life.)
Now this Is the prayer of the Bull and
At the shrine of the God of Gold,
Where the shadow cast by a Christian
And the westering sun's effulgent fire
Down a narrow street unrolled;
"O Lord of the Merger nnd Trust and
Of Gammon nnd Greed nnd Sham;
'Man cannot live by bread alone,'
So, give us our da"y lamb.
"We need his fleece to keep us worm,
His fat when the nights are cool;
And, after all, he's an only child
And twin-brother to a fool.
"We won't do a thing to the fresh
But teach him to uambol
We'll feed him on only the best of
And beautiful 'long' 'baled hay.
"He shall not suffer the pangs of thirst
This wooly stray from the flock
For Innocence we love and prize,
And nlways water our stock.
"The lion lies down with the lamb
So why not the Bull and Bear?
We will show him 'cover,' we'll take
We've plenty of room to spare.
"His mint-sauce let him bring with
The 'long green' that's nice with
And he shall Join our Browning Club
And learn what is In a name.
"Then 'let us return to our mutton'
With current funds (which is jam)
He shall have a plunge In our deepest
And come out a steel-spring-lamb.
"O slightly Alloyed Auriferous God,
Hear thy humble beasts who prey!
The Knights of the Golden Fleece are
And we worship thee night and day."
